I am playing Butcher of Malakir in the place of Anowon, the Ruin Sage. Do you think I should switch them? I also play Grave Pact and Voldaren Pariah. This is in addition to the other creature based removal we both play in Gatekeeper of Malakir and Patron of the Vein.
We have almost identical spell based removal with the exception that I play WearTear and Vindicate. I think in a non competitive environment we can run more higher cost removal that hits more targets.
What besides Shared Animosity, are you running to finish off the table? Has Coat of Arms or Eldrazi Monument been considered. I run both in addition to Shared Animosity but would probably cut Coat of Arms between the two as Eldrazi Monument provides protection against many board wipes.

I would cut the following cards due to their high mana costs and because they offer little other than their bodies to the deck: Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Licia, sanguine Tribune , Malakir Bloodwitch, Nirkana Revenant, Patron of the Vein, and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter. Additionally I would cut Black Market, Cathars' Crusade, and Blood Tribute for more or less the same reasons. I would cut these for more ramp, which in mardu is just mana rocks, and lands in general, even if you kept 1-3 of your big beaters and cut the rest it would improve the curve and draws considerably.
