you could run a Nephalia Academy, or a Library of Leng to take advantage of the mass mill effects like Windfall and Whispering Madness

Batterskull is good for the deck because of the Lifelink, which can help with Dismember life loss. Plus Batterskull is a nice 5-drop in and of itself, and attached to a Reality Smasher can be brutal.

Nephalia Academy is an interesting card, thanks for pointing it out. The only card I would swap it for is Sea Gate Wreckage though or maybe a Ghost Quarter. The rest of the lands are set.

Why are you running Matter Reshaper? or Endbringer? This deck would benefit greatly from extra copies of Karn Liberated and/or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. If you're doing this right, you should have Urza lands online by turn 3 or 4, and your Dismembers will fend off any creatures you need to worry about while you set up. I don't know why Batterskull is in there, but you probably have a good reason. That being said, I believe you should cut the Endbringer's, add in 2 extra Karn Liberated and one extra Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Get rid of Matter Reshaper and add in an extra Dismember, another Ulamog, then maybe 2 other eldrazi titans (I suggest Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre).

As far as your lands go, I would make the 2 wastes into 2 Nephalia Academy, just in case if you run into Thoughtseize.

Some suggestions. First, you should probably replace Falkenrath Noble with Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist. Next, I'd honestly run the under appreciated Nephalia Academy. If there's anything I've learned from Tolarian Academy, it's that the word "academy" translates to "good card". You want the academy for those pesky Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize runners, as well as Blightning and Pain Magnification. I don't see the need for transmute in this deck. Those two cards specifically search for exactly 3 CMC. Not one of your combo pieces costs 3.

Anyway, neat idea! I can see this becoming a very popular (very budget) deck. Best of luck friend!

Thanks, Agnos! I think I'm at 33 right now more because the deck isn't play-tested yet. Also I'm really only playing commander casually with friends so having the fastest mana ramp possible isn't too much of a concern especially when fetch lands are out of my budget to get for every deck that I'd want. And good catch, I just goofed on that Novijen lol. I should really put Nephalia Academy in its place, good for commander in general but also specifically for the couple of my own discard spells that hit everyone including me.

Also regarding the Nephalia Academy it was just there as a replacement for another colourless mana. But the thing about the nephalia it protects me from discard for free.
