I like the deck, you have some interesting cards here in the 99. If you are looking to make it more powerful, Mindslicer might be up your ally. The only concern would be you do not have too many ways to sacrifice it, so up to you if you think it could work. Some other cards you might like Pox, Bag of Holding, Cunning Lethemancer, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel as a general black good card.

You miss quite a few keypieces that match your theme. Aura Thief, Mindslicer, Contamination, Ashiok, Dream Render and Grave Pact are just a few that come to mind. They’re doing great work in my Muldrotha deck. Night Incarnate also kills a lot of decks like tokens, elves, goblins etc

A great start to what I was thinking of doing.

I recommend considering these as well Mindslicer, Delirium Skeins, Mind Shatter, Gibbering Descent, maybe even Wit's End

Hey! I’m in the beginning stages of building this deck. I like your list a lot, but I have to say my very first thought when seeing TB was Mindslicer would be an excellent add!

Oh yeah I love Mindslicer, right now in my meren I'm running Mind Slash as a sac engine/ oh was that your key combo piece? Hahaha

Vash13 That is an excellent point and many times I do have no hand and just choose to dredge over and over anyway. When Meren of Clan Nel Toth was my commander back in the day I used to play Mindslicer but it is pretty mean. I am afraid of venturing too far down that dark path. I prefer to keep my evil more zany instead of Hitleresqe.

Viridian Emissary and Satyr Wayfinder are slow and inconsistent. Especially the Emissary. I also see a lot of lists using Mindslicer as a way to disrupt opponents but I have found I like Sadistic Hypnotist more in a deck that uses Reveillark. It can be a target for reanimation from the graveyard with the trigger and it doubles as a sacrifice outlet. It can only function at sorcery speed but if you have a decent board when cast then you can remove the cards in your opponent's hands while still keeping your own. You could even target yourself and only discard the cards you want in the graveyard and keep the ones you don't want to discard.

You seem to have a good idea of what to add for powerful decks. This is has been my favorite deck for a long time and I have been playing it since before I knew what cEDH was. I like the include of Wake the Dead I never thought of that and I am going to try to find a spot in my list for it. I have a few players that run combat based commanders so winning in response to them attacking could be a great advantage. Especially if they try to go all in with Craterhoof or Najela.

While Sun Titan is very good but recently I feel like it is to slow. I would replace it with Leonin Relic-Warder You already have the Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead that are made combo pieces with it. Is there a reason you aren't running Blood Artist / Zulaport Cutthroat. They are consistent wincons with Hulk and it seems like you don't have any direct win cards off of Hulk except for Acidic Slime -> Destroy all Artifacts Enchantments and Lands you don't control, then Mindslicer away everyones hands so they can't retaliate. That wins you the game next turn but that just makes the game unnecessarily slow. I think adding at least Blood Artist gives you a direct win that turn and if you draw it early then it helps stop your opponents from graveyard combos because it triggers off all creatures dying, not just your own.

If you could look at my deck and give advice that would be appreciated as well. I used to run all the same types of combos as you are but I slowly narrowed down all the win more cards from the deck to make it more consistent and more powerful. I am trying to get it recognized by the community at the moment. With a heavy heart I had to swap my commander too. I wanted to keep it Karador but I had to switch to Anafenza as a quick creature to pressure Ad Naus decks and a Graveyard Hate piece for opposing Hulk players. Hermit Hulk cEDH
