Captivating Vampire would be disgustingly awesome. Also Archfiend of Depravity would be cool, though I may prefer Indulgent Tormentor for the engine.

I would cut Bloodgift Demon , Demon of Catastrophes , Indulgent Tormentor , Ring of Xathrid , and Pristine Talisman . They are your weakest cards and you have plenty of better draw power.

Hey friend

You seem to really like card draw, so i'm surprised you missed Indulgent Tormentor !

This deck is pretty budget, but if you want a great comander draw engine consider saving for Rhystic Study .

If you are aiming to do some damage with AoE B Enchantments, consider getting Painful Quandary .

If you want to go a bit more discard route, how about Quest for the Nihil Stone , Wheel of Torture , Shrieking Affliction . (you'd need cards like Guul Draz Specter , Stronghold Rats , Urgoros, the Empty One .)

I feel like card draw is less valuable then you might think. At some point i wonder what it is you want to draw with your card draw, and why having card draw would be better than having said card in your deck. I wouldn't expect any card draw in a deck with your commander. If you'd have to make this deck without any card draw, what would it look like? What problem then, are you solving by adding card draw?

GL with your deck and playing mtg!

Suggestions: If you're running payoffs for death triggers and sacrifice outlets, you might want to put in some things you want to sacrifice. Or ways to recur things. Either way, I think we're angling toward a black stompy deck with removal and commander synergy. We should be able to budget-ize this pretty nicely by focusing it as well.

Some cards to try: Maralen of the Mornsong , Wound Reflection , Lashwrithe , Dread Presence , Vilis, Broker of Blood , Scheming Symmetry , Ever After , Killing Wave , Decree of Pain , In Garruk's Wake , Pestilence Demon , Indulgent Tormentor , Painful Quandary , Silence the Believers

LadyZ thanks for the suggestions! Much appreciated :).

Despark is defenitely cool, but I don't want to be too heavy on spot removal, as I already run Anguished Unmaking (being able to hit permanents lower than 3CMC) and Vindicate (being able to hit lands). The real question is how relevant it is to be able to exile permanents that cost lest than 3CMC, so I might switch Anguished Unmaking for Despark

Sower of Discord is a great card, but I don't like that it puts you in a position where you immediately make two enemies, as this deck cannot really deal with being the archenemy.

Utvara Hellkite is in the maybeboard, as I know it's one of the strongest Dragons in the game, it also costs 8 mana however...

I've played before with Indulgent Tormentor and have to say that I found it a bit underwhelming, giving players a choice will always result in the choice that's least beneficial for you (them losing 3 life) which is hardly worth it for a 5 mana 5/3

Cheers!

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom

Don't forget Thraximundar and Warstorm Surge ...

Here are some houses:

Bloodtracker ... must have imo

Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?

Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone

Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone

Viscera Seer ... tier 1 version of Carrion Feeder

Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this

Treasonous Ogre ... seems good

Harvester of Souls ... + Damnation ?

Reef Worm ... endless worms

Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped

Drana, Liberator of Malakir ... yes... anything that lets you ignore the throne is amazing

Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+

Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes

Midnight Reaper ... yes

Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this

Goblin Bombardment ... yes

You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...

Ogre Slumlord

Overseer of the Damned

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Revel in Riches

If you count Merciless Executioner , Innocent Blood , etc, with wipes like Damnation , etc, you have 12 wipes and 5 removal... which is probably too much control.

To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...

Core Prowler ... maybe

Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out

Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice

Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet

...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.

Demons would also be pretty sweet:

Archfiend of Depravity ... wipe

Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice

Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice

Havoc Demon ... wipe

Indulgent Tormentor ... another Bloodgift Demon

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?

Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good

Lord of the Void ... betrayal

Malfegor ... wipe?

Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe

Ravenous Demon  Flip... sacrifice Marchesa or take the 9 to get off the throne?

Reaper from the Abyss ... removal

Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor

Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal

Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Grim Haruspex , etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:
