I think that Hissing Miasma is enough for that deck. Marchesa's Decree and Blood Reckoning cost 1 more mana and do almost the same thing, so I think that would be a waste of precious slots. Gonti's Machinations and Subversion are very interesting cards, i'll keep them for when I need to gain more life. Thank you!

Ziembski thank for your suggestions. I like Marchesa's Decree i can replace Hissing Miasma with this but only one of those cards type ("being attacked life lose") is enough because they are important only vs aggro decks, but they are not vs control decks with only 15 creatures or vs voltron decks. Gonti's Machinations, Palace Siege and Subversion are very powerful cards but i play cards with "players can't gain life" so, for a card that could only lose life points (if i have Sulfuric Vortex in the battlefield for ex.) is not a good choice. I think that cards like Spellshock and Underworld Dreams are better vs decks that play many spell and that draws a lot of cards ( my meta have less aggro than control decks :) ). However which changes would you suggest?

How about all those "being attacked life lose" like Hissing Miasma - Marchesa's Decree and Blood Reckoning?

Gonti's Machinations is really cheap and effective drain in multiplayer EDH.

Subversion for more drain?

Vengeful Pharaoh was originally in the deck but it's a 5 drop and I don't really have any discard outlets. originally I was running stuff like Mind Twist, Sadistic Hypnotist, etc but I decided just squatting isn't really enough to be considered a chair. With no reliable way to get it in the yard and it being a 5 drop triple black, I decided to cut it. It was one of my last cuts. I didn't even consider Marchesa's Decree, that's a good one, I'll have to find room for it. Also didn't think about the Demonic Tutor, the only ones I have are revised so the Duel Deck art didn't even occur to me lol. I'll probably add that if I can get my hands on one. There's also Diabolic Tutor with the snakes on the alter but I don't think that should really count either. Throne of the God-Pharaoh was also originally in the deck but I ended up cutting it because I don't have one and also I don't think I'd really do all that much. It might though. I think it's one of those cards that'd either be really good or really bad. I like it in mana dork decks but idk about something like this. Didn't even know Sorceress Queen was a thing. definitely need to make room for that one. I'm at work so I can't tinker right now but I'll have to shift some stuff around. Thanks! =D

You can add Demonic Tutor if you want a tutor. They have a promo with a guy sitting on a throne in the background. You can also try Throne of the God-Pharaoh if you have a lot of tapped creatures each turn. You could also have Sorceress Queen to make it easier to kill things in combat or with burns. Vengeful Pharaoh and Marchesa's Decree can help deter attackers if you don't have Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts. Feel free to look through my chair deck for anything else that may help you build your own chair deck: Please have a seat. There aren't too many of us that want to build something like this.

I agree that lowering you Cmc should be first priority. I tried focusing on red/black with my vamps, but it looks like you're going black/white life gain. Campaign of Vengeance is a must-have. Marchesa's Decree is pseudo card draw. Phyrexian Reclamation is great for recursion.
