It That Betrays Discussion

I feel like this deck has too little big reanimator creatures. Stuff like It That Betrays, the titans, the gearhulks, the legendary eldrazis... I don't wanna mention only super expensive cards, but there are a bunch of stuff that is worth reanimating that goes really well with what you have here

Ok, there are some cards in the deck that are very unmerenlike. Gonti, Lord of Luxury Varolz, the Scar-Stripped, Bitter Ordeal, Riftsweeper Abyssal Persecutor Aerie Ouphes Carrion Feeder and others of the like. Some of these are just bad in a reanimator deck.
Also, you have good board wipes but nothing helps out a board wipe like an All Is Dust. Combo that with an It That Betrays and all sorts of Grave Pact like effects and you get everyone's board! Easy peasy, lemon squeezey.

Yeah It That Betrays I realize may not be the best option here, even though I like it, it's costly.
Oh but I know what you can add, some of the cycle lands like Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, Tranquil Thicket, Slippery Karst, Blasted Landscape and Ash Barrens. I just thought since you had Archfiend of Ifnir you might want perhaps 2 of these or something.
Additionally here are a few other considerations:

I'm trying to think of possible additions for this, the only cards that comes to mind currently is either Asceticism, It That Betrays if you ever choose to do more sacrifice realated cards on your opponents then maybe add that and perhaps Cruel Reality (Amonkhet black mythic enchantment).

Phyrexian Obliterator+It That Betrays. Buried Alive+Victimize as the enabler 1. Summoner's Egg+Eldritch Evolution as enabler 2. Mix with some Glissa, the Traitor for lols. Put Lure on obliterator for a happy playgroup. Outside these dickbag interactions they are just solid ways to cheat fatties into play before people are ready to deal with them.
Title wise it should reflect what a toxic relationship is about or who this mean black widow harlot is. Its just like a woman to get you into a fight with an obliterator

As far as mass removal, Hipparchos, I do have Nevinyrral's Disk in the deck, but I'm kind of limited in this color. Red does do land destruction pretty well, but I'm not a big fan. People don't really like being shut down and not being able to play the game. I do have Keldon Firebombers though, and some spot land removal with Avalanche Riders and Ghost Quarter.
You're right Optimator, that with a couple of exceptions mono-red is a weak color for multi-player EDH. This deck plays really well in Dual Commander, but the more players you add, the weaker the deck gets.
The deck is pretty commander reliant. The CMC for it is currently at 4.34, that's really high. The goal, of course, is to get these high mana cost creatures into your graveyard without casting them in order to bring them back with Feldon. The last time I played this deck was at a LGS. I had played two four player games with different decks, then two of the guys had to go, but one guy wanted to play another game, so I pulled out this deck.
He did a good job of keeping Feldon off the field, once with Darksteel Mutation (luckily I had High Market out). I was able to play Quicksilver Amulet though, and after dropping It That Betrays using the Amulet and then next turn Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker copying the eldrazi, the game was over.
The thing is, if I hadn't gotten Quicksilver Amulet out, my opponent keeping Feldon off the battlefield would have been a serious problem.

Hey friend, cool deck! One of my first EDH decks was an Oloro gain'n'drain build a lot like this. I'd suggest checking out my deck @ Ageless Artifacts for the broad picture of it, but here's what I noticed about your build:
Some of your cards, like Filigree Angel, want to be in a deck with a TON more artifacts than you actually have. Those are the cards I'd cut first. Next, I'd take out cards that want you to attack, like Odric, Lunarch Marshal, It That Betrays, and Archetype of Imagination, since a gain'n'drain build doesn't really want that as much as it wants protection and deterrence. Then, I'd take out some of your removal encahntments like Banishing Light in favor of WB "unconditional" removal like Anguished Unmaking and Utter End or WB board wipes like Retaliate and Fell the Mighty.
As far as cards to put in, I'd shoot for some more of those explosive combos that this deck does so well. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is nuts with Serra Avatar and Vizkopa Guildmage, as is Cradle of Vitality. I'd put in more card draw like Underworld Connections and Greed (Oloro is an expensive and easily-killed commander, so don't always rely on his second ability).
In general, I'd say you need to take out cards that don't enable your primary win conditions or help you survive long enough to find those win cons. However, that's not to say that this isn't a well-thought-out and explosive deck, because it certainly is. Good luck! and mention me in the comments if I can do anything else for you.
