Saw on your thread that you're looking for some card draw suggestions. A few good options include Brainstorm , Ponder , Gitaxian Probe , Preordain , Consecrated Sphinx , Sphinx's Revelation , Night's Whisper , and Necropotence . There are others, but those should help. Not sure what to cut though...that's a tough one.

Update from this weekends cEDH tournament.
Won all rounds, but probably should have lost to a Kess, Dissident Mage in round 2, had a Glen Elendra Archmage resolved. I managed to Toxic Deluge it but then they Thoughtseize my Grim Tutor so was waiting for a tutor to pull a Swords to Plowshares . Then they tapped out on casting a Pact of Negation on my Bloodgift Demon (At the time, I only had Reflecting Pool (luckily they had played a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth which enabled it to be ) and they were trying to mitigate my draw. (Note: I kept a 0 land hand in that round because I had Mana Crypt , Arcane Signet , and Dark Ritual in hand. Soon as they had no , successfully resolved my combo (again), they had already Force of Will cast on me earlier.
Anyways, never used the Worldgorger Dragon at all, drew the Bogardan Hellkite in the last round, never played him. Each round got there the same way, Buried Alive + Reanimate . The last round I resolved a Razaketh, the Foulblooded , sac'd Kaalia of the Vast realized I didn't have enough , so had to wait a turn, then cast Kaalia of the Vast again, resolved an Avacyn, Angel of Hope , sac'd Kaalia of the Vast to pull a for Goblin Bombardment (post-combat) sacrifice all the Restoration Angel after casting Buried Alive + Reanimate .
Post the tournament, realized Demonic Consultation was too much of a dead draw, going to replace it with Plunge into Darkness , saw it played a couple times was not horrible, worst case just pulls a tutor usually.
Also worked that evening on replacing Worldgorger Dragon and Bogardan Hellkite but came up with nothing. I primary win-con all rounds, never went to Leonin Relic-Warder which is far safer secondary than Worldgorger Dragon . Still thinking a Doomsday is a better way to go, could do Doomsday + Night's Whisper and build a stack:
Leonin Relic-Warder (discard with Faithless Looting )
That's CMC7 though .
What I really need is another Buried Alive best I can think of is Final Parting >> Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead (to hand), but then still need a Goblin Bombardment . So the combo would be Final Parting + Goblin Bombardment or Animate Dead . So would be CMC9. Better than Doomsday CMC7 (stack) + = CMC10, and doesn't require a same turn enabler like Street Wraith . Still not right though. Hmm.

Regarding your land drops, I HATE missing land drops, so I know where you're coming from, but at a point you can sacrifice that land for more card draw in the form of Phyrexian Arena , Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper , the last 2 in particular are good in your opening hand. If you choose not to, understand completely. But I've been playing in a more semi-competitive meta, so I make these suggestions from that perspective. Not sure what your meta is like and the level of interaction.
Murderous Rider isn't a crazy upgrade and I understand art for flavor reasons, although I disagree with your art choice, I think the promo looks bad and the "upgrades murderous rider" (whatever it's called) in foil looks spectacular. I respect your artistic taste nevertheless.
Hellfire definitely seems like a pet card since it's the picture of your deck.
I like that aspect of Ill-Gotten Gains , I have 3 mindslaver effects in my mono black deck so I know where you're coming from, thats a fair point.
The promo version of Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed is $55 on TCG player, while it's a lot of $$, just wanted you to be informed of the price difference.
Another note, I LOVE Head Games , but it's not so much a threat as it is a political tool. If you use it that way, by all means. Whenever I tried using it in either of my playgroups, it always worked against me because I was seen as the threat, maybe it isn't the case in your situation. But should you want to go for more efficiency, I would replace it for Mind Twist (note, it says at random). Can be used earlier than head games, bait's counterspell removal, put creatures in their yards from the hand.

Nova Chaser has a few things wrong with it I've found that does not combo well at all.
1) Its does not have haste which lowers the aggressiveness of this deck substantially.
2) With Nova having the toughness of 2 the combo with Thunderkin Awakener is non-existent.
3) Nova's 4 cmc will never allow me to bring him back from the graveyard to the battlefield with Unearth . So if he gets wrecked as soon as he etb's? Well, I'm shit out of luck.
I had Tormenting Voice matched with Faithless Looting in my previous build. I'm actually playing around with the idea to run 3 Tormenting Voice and 4 Thrill of Possibility to see how well it will operate. At the moment Night's Whisper is a solid draw mechanic for 2 cmc that just feels really good. With this version I tend to hard cast my 3 drop elemental's more frequently then I had to in the past pre-faithless version anyway, so I'm actually considering cutting the discard aspect all together as you can see in the current build. So since Fling has made its way back into the line up as a solid tactic the discard aspect become more irrelevant.
Thanks for the suggestions though. I just feel its impossible to get this deck back being the turn 3 win it once was with Faithless Looting out of the picture. At least we have a solid turn 4-6 win ratio working for it.

Love to see new commander players! You've got the makings of a fun deck here -- Orzhov is one of my favorite color combos. IMO, you need three things: card draw, removal, and more/faster mana acceleration. For all three, there are cards that synergize with sacrifice/death triggers. Here are a few --
Last, if you have the budget and/or want to make the investment, three great (and expensive) lands in Commander are Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Phyrexian Tower , and of course Cabal Coffers . Happy brewing!
