GhostChieftain i'll definitely try the Blood Pet and as for Mindblade Render , I get it for the Najella match up but I feel it's too specific otherwise.

I don't really follow your train of thought. What does the low amount of maindeck warriors (you left out Mindblade Render ) have to do with Oakhame Adversary?

More importantly, you kind of answered your own question: the fact that Adversary basically always costs 2 mana to cast is the big reason why it's so nuts. It's essentially another copy of Dark Confidant but with added upside. Efficiency is king. While I have strongly considered Raiders' Spoils , four mana at sorcery speed is kind of a turn off.

Why Priest of Gix ? Imo Blood Pet would be better in here. Less damage off of naus and bob, can ramp into a t2 teysa (or any other 3 drop), and could still combo for inf black mana with karmic guide and reveillark like priest can.

I would also suggest adding Mindblade Render because most of the time you should be able to hit someone profitably in cEDH games. Either that or the najeela player will hit somebody and you can profit.

Hugomarink - Mindblade Render is a budget choice for Dark Confidant . Comes out the same turn as Dark Confidant (same CMC), has draw potential on the same turn (the turn after it is played), and on a minor note is a good swinger for Tymna the Weaver . Those are the main reasons I chose this over, say, a Phyrexian Arena .

Loyal Apprentice is just a really nice 2 drop that has haste and creates evasive hastey creature that allows for draw with Tymna the Weaver .

I am going to try to update this list to be closer to my tester as soon as I playtest it. Currently more draw seems useful, as the deck runs out of gas fast, but I can consistently kill a player in a full cEDH pod, despite not being a super-competitive deck, it seems very playable, if built properly.

I am going to add Mindblade Render for some draw to my build, nice idea!

Oakhame Adversary , Mindblade Render , Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Tymna the Weaver , and Sylvan Library might be worth taking a look into. You can honestly replace some of your weaker hate with draw because you can dig faster into even more hate.

$600 is a lot of room for work! Sweet!

Okay, so I think you should try to get some good draw in here, and in abzan good cheap draw can be tough sometimes. Tymna the Weaver , Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Mindblade Render , and Tireless Tracker all do really well. Sylvan Library if you can fit it in is best.

To be more of a competitive deck, I would try to cut more of the high cmc cards and some more lands down to about 33, and then replace with more 1 drop mana producers. Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Boreal Druid , and Deathrite Shaman . 2 drop Priest of Titania is also super sweet.

Instant speed interaction is really key to keep opponent's from winning, and to stop grave hate from shutting you out. Natural State , Nature's Claim , Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , and Path to Exile would be good additions.

If you aren't opposed to infinite combos (looks like you aren't) I would highly suggest Protean Hulk

Along the aggro theme, Triumph of the Hordes is a very strong finisher. Hope this all helps!
