Liliana's Contract Discussion

I'm assuming you're using Liliana's Contract as card draw, since there are no demons in the deck. I would recommend literally any other black draw spell over that.

Mairsil, the Pretender- I love this card because it enables combos that normally are not and his effect is just narrow enough without being too restrictive to allow creative deck building. Even makes bad cards like Shauku, Endbringer into pretty awesome cards.
Stuffy Doll- Who doesn't like voodoo dolls? Weird interactions and punishments are my jam. I was tempted to put Manabarbs as another of my 3 but there might be Repercussions if I did that. These cards are all up side :) They also hurt my opponents without actually stopping them from doing their thing.
Vraska the Unseen- Could have put Liliana's Contract, Felidar Sovereign, Mortal Combat or any of those other similar cards. I'm sure you can see what these have in common. For me these serve a few purposes. First closing out the game needs to happen eventually. I enjoy long games where everyone gets to do something but someone has to win too. Second I've shut some people up after they complain about me winning with combo "all the time". These don't require any combo, they just synergize with the deck they are in.
I am very much a combo player but I enjoy weird things that shouldn't happen or happen rarely more than the typical combos that happen all the time. I also enjoy when something isn't a combo but has the same game ending capabilities. I love seeing what someone's deck will do too but don't expect to do it without some form of punishing effect going on.

Hey thanks for commenting y'all! I recently played with this deck and noticed that it was very slow to start, i'm guessing my land count and mana curve are coming back to bite me haha.
carlmoores i wasn't feeling them but now i have a slightly better understanding of the game, are there any that you recommend?
golgarigirl all my ramp cards made it more green than black but i like both. I believe I have Moldervine Reclamation, Golgari Charm, and Murder somewhere so i'll definitely add them! I also added Nylea, Keen-Eyed for less expensive creatures lol. I'll definitely look into getting Overwhelming Stampede as well, Timberwatch Elf helps me especially if someone else is running elves too. Do you know any cards that can protect my enchantments, especially Conspiracy and Liliana's Contract? Since it's my secondary win con and all that haha

I've updated the deck by going Orzhov and adding a bunch of cheap white changelings like Impostor of the Sixth Pride , Avian Changeling , and Irregular Cohort . I've also included three copies of Brainspoil to tutor up Liliana's Contract . The deck is now much more consistent overall.

That Witch's Cottage probably isn't going to fire off very often given that you don't have many swamps in the deck [without finding Urborg and I don't see a lot of ways to fetch that up]. Mortuary Mire doesn't have the restrictions the Cottage does but performs the same task [sadly will always come into play tapped].
I'll second the addition of Reconnaissance as its a very low CMC way to keep your commander out of harm's way while still triggering her on-attack ability.
You have a handful of cards here that I've tried in various decks of my own and have found pretty underwhelming: Aegis Angel found this usually set me up for a 2 for 1 as opponents would Plow her [insert instant speed removal of choice here] during combat, remove the indestructible and I'd lose the protected creature too, Platinum Angel seems great but found opponents were willing to leave it there until they had their win set up and then it would go away, Resolute Archangel awesome exactly the first 2 times I played it, Angelic Accord needed more build around to make it work.
I like Liliana's Contract but not really enough demons to have much chance to work. Conspiracy could let you enable this without needing to rework the creature base. Still, a little on the janky side without Demonic Tutor or the like to pull it together consistently.
You could probably still use another way or two of making Kaalia unblockable, say Whispersilk Cloak or the like.
