How has Mire in Misery worked out for you so far? Does the rest of your removal/bounce package tend to ensure that you can force the saccing of a relevant permanent?

As mentioned, black is explicitly getting enchantment removal (see https://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/186869030893/just-saw-mire-in-misery-this-is-the-black).

Mire in Misery is the first card which shows it off, and we should eventually see something similar come to Standard (and thus Pioneer/Modern as well).

Mire in Misery will probably get rid of an opposing creature when you want the enchantment gone and vice versa though I haven't actually playtested it yet myself, I'm going on the current hot-take groupthink for now. However, because its probably getting something from everyone, it might be good enough. Not sure I guess.

Koskun Falls seems out of character for the deck. My feeling is that your strategy revolves around your opponents' creatures being either dead or being yours. I think you have enough removal to be okay cutting this. If you wanted to keep this slot, the No Mercy listed in your maybeboard is probably a better choice but that would be increasing the budget.

Pitiless Plunderer is probably too slow in a deck not running Revel in Riches . Sad, because this is a cheap card.

Maybe swap out Nirkana Revenant for Black Market ? The market is a little cheaper both $$ and mana-wise and harder to remove. The revenant certainly gives more mana right off the bat and every turn at least until a boardwipe hits and is something to reanimate with your commander.

Due to budget I think Sheoldred, Whispering One could be a cut. It would bring down your overall CMC while being easier on the wallet but this is a tough one as it is a very, very, very good card and is excellent in the deck and arguably good enough to helm the deck.

Without playing this deck, the cuts are a bit tougher for me to evaluate as I think the card choices are pretty good overall.

In the interests of saving some $$; Jet Medallion could go to something else rampy like Wayfarer's Bauble and Phyrexian Altar could become Unstable Obelisk . The Medallion and the Altar are by far the better cards but it takes awhile to afford all of these cards and in the meantime these alternates will be serviceable.

Funny that you mention Dystopia and Mire in Misery considering that right now i'm fighing Karametra with Aura Shards ^^ Both very interesting cards. Thank you for mentioning them.

And in regards for Pox and Death Cloud , you're right, they pose too much of a threat to my own life depending on where we are in a game, especially if the game ends up running long. It's a shame, considering the extra benefits, they could eventually find a place in the deck.

This might be too specific for your tastes, but I find that playing green is so desirable in EDH that Dystopia is always useful. Paying a few life is a pittance compared to blowing up a couple permanents, especially because it also has the capability to take out enchantments. Speaking of, you might appreciate that fancy new Mire in Misery - it's especially effective just after you wiped the board of all creatures.

On the stax side of things, I notice you went for Smallpox but not Pox or Death Cloud . Too dangerous?

My guess is that Mire in Misery is rarely going to hit a problem enchantment. Meteor Golem or Spine of Ish Sah might be better options.
