Creeping Renaissance can either get a lot of your instant tricks back or a good number of creatures if you've been wiped a few times. There's also Praetor's Counsel but renaissance is cheaper.

I dig the bounce Toothy (or other useful creature) tech.

That comment about needing Nexus of Fate is exactly why you don't want it or the other auto includes. Boring B.S. This deck actually looks fun.

Psychosis Crawler would do some work, but you've gone down that road before.

How have I not seen Forge of Heroes ?

Beast Within over Rapid Hybridization ? I know it costs 2 more, but more flexible and you've driven down the CMC of the deck as it is.

Shadow Rift over Slip Through Space ? I'm not seeing why the colorless makes sorcery speed better, or the slight risk of running into a Nether Traitor.

I don't think the cycling makes Dissenter's Deliverance better than Deglamer .

Glen Elendra Archmage is probably an auto include you should include considering how many uses you'd likely get out of it.

Spike Weaver is something I'd put in, but not really your style. But... fogs...

I don't feel the need for Chasm Skulker or Diviner's Wand , we want to draw more efficiently than these because 4 mana a card isn't efficient and Chasm Skulker doesn't do much besides being a big dumb idiot, which we don't really need either. Opponents attacking us isn't something that usually happens, and Rhystic Study gives my opponents the choice, which I don't care for.

I'm dismissing Psychosis Crawler for about the 4th time in this deck's existence, because it's not the game we're playing.

Njirk I like Forbid . I'll find space for it. :)

Hey man!

I think that Chasm Skulker , Psychosis Crawler , and Diviner's Wand could be good for extra wincons as you draw a bunch of cards. Maybe Ever-Watching Threshold to ensure your opponents don't attack you and Rhystic Study to draw more cards?

Good Luck!

Alright, this is going to be a doozy.

First off, you have multiple ways of playing Varina. From what I've experienced playtesting her (your deck specifically), she seems really good as a draw engine/fill the graveyard with stuff. But your deck doesn't seem geared towards this specific ability. I would recommend a few cards that encourage more synergy with Varina's ability. The madness cards you use currently are great examples of what I'm suggesting. Other such cards are Big Game Hunter and Archfiend of Ifnir .

I also find you're not running enough graveyard shenanigans. I'd consider cards like Dimir Doppelganger , Body Double , Lazav, the Multifarious , and Dralnu, Lich Lord as ways to further increase graveyard abuse (if you start casting more from the graveyard, River Kelpie is a possibility too).

You're playing a lot of cards that damage your opponents when a zombie dies, but very few sac outlets. It makes your deck rely a little on your opponents killing your zombies for you. In order to circumvent this, I would recommend playing "free" sac outlets such as Carrion Feeder , Voracious Null , Nantuko Husk , Viscera Seer and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born .

On the subject of free sac outlets, Phyrexian Altar and Phyrexian Tower should be considered if ever your budget opens up. Ghoulcaller Gisa has potential as well.

Draw synergies: Alhammarret's Archive , Psychosis Crawler and Sanguine Bond (since Varina gains you life this could be very funny).

Creatures dying synergies (should you choose to focus on that more): Dark Prophecy , Deathgreeter , Grim Haruspex , Grave Pact

Synergy with Varina's activated ability: Eternal Scourge , Misthollow Griffin , Heartstone or the more $$$ Training Grounds .

Flavor: Call to the Grave and Throne of the God-Pharaoh .

Frenetic Sliver is another creature that will let you flip an arbitrarily large amount of coins.

Other creatures with decent coin-flip abilities are Goblin Archaeologist , Karplusan Minotaur and Mogg Assassin . You could also include Deadeye Quartermaster and Godo, Bandit Warlord if you're running equipment like Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots / Whispersilk Cloak for Okaun.

The Locust God and Psychosis Crawler are also good if you plan on comboing with Zndrsplt.

I think I see where you are going with this deck, I have some ideas that might be fun or interesting for it. You might consider Jace's Archivist , Mind Over Matter , Laboratory Maniac and Psychosis Crawler as they would add a couple of routes for a card draw victory by either milling yourself with Laboratory Maniac or pinging opponents to death with Psychosis Crawler. If you do consider these adds then you may wand an old school eldrazi titan for mill protection. Looks fun, +1.

Hey, nice start, but The Locust God is fueled by mass draw spells and I don't see very many here.

Archivist is good and his ability is called a wheel. You'll hear this term a lot in Commander and what it means is all players or just you shuffle some number of cards from hands and/or graveyard into library and then draw cards. This effect is very good with Locust because he triggers for each single draw therefore if you draw seven cards you make seven 1/1 Insects. Drawing seven of more cards from casting one card is very good.

Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Expedite
  • Browbeat
  • Flame Fusillade
  • Renegade Tactics
  • Rile
  • Slip Through Space
  • Warlord's Fury
  • Dual Casting
  • Curiosity
  • Jalira, Master Polymorphist
  • Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer
  • Rummaging Goblin
  • Epic Experiment
  • Mechanized Production

Good luck with your deck.
