Hey, you're welcome.
There's 12 rogues here for the party, but only 5 clerics, 4 Warriors and 1 Wizard. These ratios of party members will make it difficult to have much mana cost reduction for Zagras especially Wizards. My advice is make these numbers more even to give you more chances to have different party members on the battlefield at once. Changeling Outcast is a budget one drop party member who can be any creature type you choose for party and it's unblockable which has good interaction with several tribal combat damage effects.
Budget Wizards to consider adding:
- Blood Cultist, Fireslinger: more pingers with deathtouch.
- Pain Seer, Magus of the Wheel, Grim Haruspex: draw.
There's some party members who could be upgraded to better budget creatures especially the Warriors:
- Goblin Chainwhirler > Carnage Gladiator
- Azra Oddsmaker > Brawl-Bash Ogre
- Mindblade Render > Rakdos Roustabout
- Oona's Blackguard > Blood Burglar
Blood Beckoning could be upgraded to Nullpriest of Oblivion who is a two drop Cleric or if you cast with kicker you can reanimate any creature in your graveyard. Beckoning doesn't reanimate it recurs the creature/creatures to your hand which is a big difference. Searing Barrage could be upgraded to any Wizard party member because this removal spell is not needed as it's the least good and costs the most mana for what it does.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Pyroclastic Hellion
- Lash of Thorns
- Inordinate Rage
- Barge In
- Avatar of Fury
- Nearheath Stalker
- Bloodsworn Steward
- Blazing Specter
- Gnat Alley Creeper
- Duskmantle Operative
- Crashing Drawbridge
- Ashenmoor Liege
Pump spells that only pump one creature one time such as Infuriate are subpar in Commander especially when you can only cast them once. If the spell pumped all creatures you control, protected the creature from removal or it made the creature have huge power with evasion then that's different, but the pump spells here don't do that. More draw is more impactful than pump.

Hey, Changeling Outcast, one drop party member who can be any type of party member you choose. Since it's unblockable that gives it good interaction with Robber of the Rich, Azra Oddsmaker, Mindblade Render, Quietus Spike and Scytheclaw.

Thank you so much for that huge response. It takes lots of time to write out that much. So thank you. I like alot of your suggestions. I already made changes. I guess while you were typing that out. I added Audacious Thief (rogue) and Mindblade Render (warrior).

DeinoStinkus I mean, Mindblade Render actually is really, really good, if you have a najeela opponent, whenever they damage someone else, you draw too, and any other warriors on your side can trigger it, think Oakhame Adversary!
I certainly have to have a reason to not run it in every single black deck of mine.
Also it's a super cheap ingame and irl card.

Mind if I pick your brain on how this played out so far? How has Diabolic Intent gone so far?
