jdinkhouse I used to run Nether Traitor but I cut it for 2 reasons: (1) It's not a 1-drop. While having haste is nice, its still slower to get Yuriko out than to just play an unblockable 1-drop. As of Eldraine, I think this is outclassed by Gingerbrute .
(2) It costs double black. This deck slants heavily blue and needs its mana fast and reliably. Keeping your costs leaning blue helps the deck avoid stumbling. Its a great card, but in my mind it has been outpaced by some of the recent 1-drops and ninjas we've been getting printed lately. The recursion on it is nice though.

pao2 Honestly, it could be an inclusion. The argument against it is that it would be the narrowest of our tutors and at sorcery speed. I personally like scheming Scheming Symmetry better as our current worst tutor, but your mileage may vary on that. If you don't have an Imperial Seal then this could do the trick considering that often we are searching extra turn spells, which are sorceries.

Perhaps consider Nether Traitor . Shadowed, Haste-y, Recurrable.

Dwarfinside Yea Murderous Rider has been fantastic so far. Especially since he can kill planeswalkers too. Before I was running multiple The Elderspell in the side as often a resolved Jace, the Mind Sculptor is GG. Nether Traitor is spicy indeed! I basically just had an open 2 drop slot and he seemed like a solid way to stick 2 black pips to the board. Another spicy include I am considering for his spot is Imp's Mischief to stop Path to Exile from ruining my day.

Nether Traitor would fit very well in this deck as another recursion card that drains.

I like the addition of Murderous Rider , he seems like a good fit for this deck. I'm interested to hear how he performs in modern. Nether Traitor is spicy, does he do any work as a one of?

You have quite a few that I have in my deck. And a couple that I noticed are missing are in your maybeboard.. but thought i would give a couple suggestions.

Bloodghast is expensive, but his recursion is pretty nice. Noosegraf Mob - a bit high CMC, but can make 6 ETBs in a round around the table. And if you can recur him, he can do it again. Puppeteer Clique - 4 ETBs, along with 2 creatures from an opponents graveyard Sepulchral Primordial - guess it depends on your playgroup, but my buddies usually play big beasts, and we usually play 4-5 player Desecrated Tomb depending on how much graveyard recursion you have, this might pay off. Buried Alive is a great way to get those key creatures like Nether Traitor and Gravecrawler where you need them Yahenni, Undying Partisan - an extra sac outlet never hurts, and he is pretty easy to keep alive
