gdm1989 That's the thing about playing Toshiro that I both love and hate. He tends to be completely underestimated when played in a group who hasn't seen you use him before, and he'll more than likely be brushed off and ignored for the duration of the game until you let loose some explosive finish out of nowhere and you start getting targeted in game two or really any other time you pull the deck from its box which makes me sad. I've been really careful in this rendition of the deck to be as subtle as possible and try not to pose clear threats on the board. The whole purpose of my deck is to be ignored and unappealing to attack, so that I'm kept in the game long enough to thin out everyone's board state and slip a win condition through when the blue player at the table isn't expecting it. Unfortunately in my new playgroup there is a Chain Veil Teferi main who has a very finely tuned competitive deck, so I need to be extra careful about him.
I know what you mean about Death Wish, if anything I think I will more likely end up slotting in Mastermind's Acquisition for one more mana to avoid the hefty drawback, and it doubles as a tutor aside from its Wish mode which is really nice. I'll try working on a package for it in the sideboard soon enough.
Thrilling Encore looks like a lot of fun. Battlebond had a lot of interesting things to offer and I was unfortunately on a bit of a hiatus at the time of its release so I never got the chance to try the new cards from that set. I like Encore a lot because it reminds me of a sort of cheaper pseudo version of Rise of the Dark Realms, and I like that card a lot too especially in a deck like this. I've been aiming for this deck to have a Reanimator subtheme without it feeling highly prevalent and taking away from the main playstyle, and I believe Encore more than adequately achieves the sense of subtlety that I am aiming for, because it can be used in a reserved fashion or it can be abused if I have enough ramp and chain together a ton of kill spells in a single turn... which this deck tends to do very often haha. Also Encore is an instant spell which Toshiro is a fan of! Excellent suggestion once again!
I can see Nightmare Incursion as means to ruin the heavy combo player's day and Choice of Damnations to play politics (also flavorful with the Toshiro quote). I can also see practical application of Wand of Vertebrae in this deck to bury instant spells, and to also return cards back into my library if I accidentally bury something I don't want in my graveyard or if something gets removed and I'm unable to reanimate it. Thank you for bringing these cards to my attention, I have seen them in other Toshiro decks, but I never actually tried them out in mine. I think this deck is going to be undergoing a lot of testing in the near future, so I'm very open minded when it comes to testing new things out.
Thank you again for your suggestions, as well as your praise and support. I've been alluding to bringing back my "filthy casual" deck (which is this one) in this newer playgroup of mine for a while now, which is funny because others may view Toshiro as a casual general while people like you and I who have experienced piloting a deck around him know that he has lots of potential. I initially turned my head toward "higher tier" generals, but I've been wanting to go back to my roots and work on this deck again which was the first commander deck I ever built. I'm going to be conducting some tweaking and tuning to hopefully gear the deck around this meta, and I'll be sure to update my description with all the decks I tend to see in this playgroup of mine so you as well as others can more appropriately help make suggestions based on meta calls.

Unfortunately I had to dismantle my toshiro deck and converted it into a Yuriko Stax deck. :( (I may rebuild it again) Too many people killed me first the moment they saw me using him. The whole game shop and my friends would rather deal with a narset then him. That's how dangerous my toshiro was. XD
As for the wish cards, they can be useful if you're going to combo out but in some cases they can also put you at a disadvantage if someone counters the card you pick after you pay half your life with Death Wish so be very careful.
Now for the instants I also recommend Thrilling Encore, you'll be surprised how quick it will turn the game towards your favor. Price of Fame, Dark Bargain, Detection Tower were excellent suggestions to put into your deck. I do recommend giving Cast Down a chance. It may not target legendaries but there are non legendaries that are a severe threat.
Overall I like what you have so far :)

One planeswalker that might benefit this deck is Liliana Vess. With her ability to tutor a card every other turn you can get out your key cards that much earlier. Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver is another one. For artifacts there is Keening Stone and Sands of Delirium. And for sorcery spells there is Increasing Confusion and Nightmare Incursion. Just some other possibilities for ya.
