Woops I clicked suggest on stuff you cannot use. Repay in Kind has always been a fun last hurrah for me. I just love talking Rakdos.

Hey! I recently made an EDH deck that was like this, aiming to win with Repay in Kind! Now, I know that you can't cast that in modern, but what about Angel's Grace, Ad Nauseam, or Death's Shadow?

Here is my EDH list is you want to take a look at it

Thanks for the comment WhichKing. Repay in Kind is an interesting suggestion. I'll have to give it some thought. I ran Thada Adel in my original Sygg, River Cutthroat list, but it is a little too slow for this deck. I want all of my evasive enablers at 1 or 2 cmc. Rootwater Thief is interesting, but I prefer my enablers to have natural evasion or some very relevant late game effects (i.e. Viscera Seer and Deadeye Tracker). It is close to the same reason why I don't run Thassa, God of the Sea in this deck. On paper it sounds good, but in practice the mana investment is too steep for minor benefit.

I think a singleton Repay in Kind can do some work. Also, Rootwater Thief and Thada Adel, Acquisitor are a good evasive creatures that can help you dismantle decks that over-rely on certain cards.

This looks like a ball to play! It seems you're to the fine-tuning stage with all these awesome suggestions.

With as much card advantage as you have here, I agree that mass recursion could help you out. Something like Patriarch's Bidding is high CMC, but it also gets all your zombies back. Just watch it against other tribals.

You might have some fun with combos like Lich + Repay in Kind.

Mana Fixing - Hard to go wrong with Chromatic Lantern! Since your commander costs 4, Coldsteel Heart or Fellwar Stone might not be bad ideas to go along with your signets so that you can ramp it out on turn 3. As far as lands go, I think they're gonna be your best bet for filtering since you have so many options available to you! Aside from the obvious dual lands and fetch lands; there are the rest of the filter lands cycle with Mystic Gate and Sunken Ruins; there's the old Odyssey filters Skycloud Expanse and Darkwater Catacombs; River of Tears and Nimbus Maze are criminally underplayed but fantastic cards; there are the new battlebond lands Morphic Pool and Sea of Clouds; and lastly there are the lands that tap for any color like Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Forbidden Orchard.

As far as staying alive goes, I notice you already have Solemnity in your maybeboard to combo with Glacial Chasm and Delaying Shield but another card that works well with Delaying Shield is Soul Echo. As long as Soul Echo has one counter on it, you're pretty much immune from damage. Also it's another card that lets you drop below 0 life. Obviously not a great combo with Solemnity but I think running one of the two wouldn't be a bad idea!

On the other side of that coin, if you happen to have Repay in Kind in hand and need to be at 0 life, Wall of Blood or Hex Parasite can help with that. Hex Parasite can only drain in increments of 2 but is a bit more versatile of a card whereas Wall of Blood can drain one life at a time, but is pretty much there only for that.

Hope some of this helped at all!

Agriyon on Kaervek - Symmetrical Pain

Nice deck list. I've been looking at making a Kaervek punish deck since I've turned my old Rakdos suicide deck into a tribal demon deck. Some of my favorite cards form that deck were Manabarbs, Citadel of Pain, Havoc Festival, Sulfuric Vortex, Spellshock, Planar Chaos, Storm Cauldron, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Ankh of Mishra, Angel's Trumpet, Mass Hysteria, Grand Melee, Avatar of Slaughter, Avarice Amulet, Spiteful Visions, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Temple Bell, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Geier Reach Sanitarium. I love Toxic Deluge in my suicide deck as a board wipe. If you're looking for more pay life to kill creatures there's also Phyrexian Purge, Fire Covenant, Slaughter, Hellfire, and Ashes to Ashes as well as Repay in Kind which helps brings opponent down to your level after hurting yourself. Possibility Storm could be a nice inclusion as well if it works the way I think it does with Kaervek. Opponent casts a spell and both Kaervek and Possibility Storm trigger, the spell gets exiled and if your opponent plays the other card with Possibility Storm then Kaervek will trigger again.
