scary power level sidisi deck you have here, and the name is clever!

honestly cant think of what to suggest, pretty much everything os here

maybe Mana Drain, Aluren, Chains of Mephistopheles for more self mill, perhaps some defense like Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Living Death or Cyclonic Rift?

Great deck, I'm also trying to find a Sek'kura deck to stick with. Great ideas here very different from other decks around here.

What about: Fresh Meat can be absolute explosive?

Living Death can be a great wining card.

Puppeteer Clique can die two times and brings a SACable buddy.

Elemental Bond Really explosive carddraw? Same goes for Smothering Abomination.

Sakura-Tribe Elder for some ramp and a Sac trigger?

Gutter Grime for when the Commander is not available?

Natural Balance can be great if you are sacing lands.

Sorry for the spam, but I really would like you opinion on those cards.Also thanks for the deck +1 :)

I like those: in fact I even have Rise of the Dark Realms and Patriarch's Bidding sideboarded, and I have Living Death in my current build, since it both wraths the board and provides recursion.

I'm really more interested in rattlesnake cards that make my opponents hesitant to use boardwipes.

With replacement effects like Urabrask the Hidden, it will not apply to creatures entering at the same time, your opponent's creature come in untapped. With a triggered ability like that granted by Constricting Sliver the triggers will be put on the stack after the spell finishes resolving. Each of your opponent's slivers will be able to exile one of your creatures.

Also, Living Death returns all creature cards, not just the ones each player wants to return. No player makes any choices while resolving Living Death.

Yeah, as Gidgetimer put it, basically they all enter simultaneously.

You can pick and choose in whatever order you want, but the fact of the matter is, no matter what "order" they come in, their ETB triggered abilities will not go onto the stack until Living Death completely resolves, which essentially means all of them will be in play before any of them trigger, and they go on the stack in APNAP order.

Arcbond is a kinda janky field wipe. Living Death can be much more devastation to your enemies than that. Potentially... How much do you rely on swinging usually? You seem really close to just not caring. Pull out the Haste set, and a couple swinging matters, then add Graft creatures (Vigean Graftmage and Novijen Sages for example) and you can run your stalling mechanics every players turn. Your mana curve remains mostly the same, just shifts slightly more blue than red. Kokusho, the Evening Star gets to stay because he doesn't care about swinging at all, you just abuse his death effect.

I really like your set up. I may have to get myself a Dimir House Guard, Fleshwrither and Jokulhaups. I have a slightly different take on it: ... Anywho, Living Death... That's a tough one. You may have to much life gain to ensure you keep getting your dethrone triggers. My knee-jerk response is Kokusho, the Evening Star. It contributes straight damage to all players and gains you life, sweet. However it doesn't have a lot to contribute to swinging... You have a good lineup for turning things sideways and loading up +1/+1 counters (Marton Stromgald, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Ogre Battledriver, and Urabrask the Hidden). Then creatures with those counters matter (Herald of Secret Streams and Oona's Blackguard). It's not that Kokusho isn't good in your lineup. Without Graft or something to help you throw silly amounts of counters on it without Dethrone, you need to swing and Kokusho doesn't do that for you. I can hear you already: "What about Unspeakable Symbol?" The three card combo is nice, but that's what I would do.

Hi there! I worked on a very similar build before the Commander 2017 Series, and I have a few tips.

this Olivia is stronger as a Timmy Aggro general, so you want to have some brutally efficient early game, rather than cards like Dark Impostor, which are high value but very slow. Also, it would be much better for you to add vampires and vampire synergy, rather than Madness cards, as they are less efficient. Here are my recommendations

CUT: Archfiend of Ifnir, Dark Impostor, Insatiable Gorgers, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Stromkirk Occultist. Vampire Cutthroat, Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Faith of the Devoted, Gibbering Descent, Fiery Temper, Alms of the Vein, Gisa's Bidding, From Under the Floorboards, Blood Tribute, Cultivator's Caravan, Hedron Archive

ADD: Vampire Nocturnus, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Captivating Vampire, Olivia Voldaren, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Smuggler's Copter, Lightning Bolt, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Living Death, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Coat of Arms, Phyrexian Arena, Outpost Siege, Living Death.
