No Problem!

I'm just not sure what the win condition is. I guess some of the bigger creatures like Sepulchral Primordial and Sheoldred, Whispering One count, but IDK.

I think there's plenty of removal in the deck, especially creature removal, but a lot of effects cost life to activate, and the only ways I have to gain life in the deck are like Vampiric Rites and Exsanguinate . Could probably use more lifegain? But maybe I like lifegain too much lol.

Maybe you could do an +1/+1 counters version of aristocrats with Undying and cards like Epochrasite ... basically sacrifice them into a powerful engine before the end of everyone's turn.

Or... (here's one): Insurrection , Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Diluvian Primordial could be a "I play your cards" betrayal theme:

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Heh, it's been awhile. Thank you for the suggestions on my deck, sorry I promised I'd get to this and didn't get back to it sooner. Awesome build, loving the theft theme of the deck.

Heya lifemtg, I have thought about using Mana Tithe but it just doesn't do enough for a fast combo deck. Don't get me wrong I love the card to death, in fact I built a deck here that makes use of those types of cards. I appreciate the thoughts of Sepulchral Primordial , but I play in a competitive meta and it doesn't do enough unfortunately. Thanks for the upvote though glad you liked it, it took a long time to get it where it's at!!!

I would also agree with what bushido_man96 said earlier, Abrupt Decay is universally more versatile and the "can't be countered clause" is highly relevant as I mentioned before, I play in a competitive meta. Path to Exile also gives them more ramp which is why I also am currently choosing not to play it currently, it's in the sideboard right now if I need to switch it back in if I need more removal spells, but it doesn't do enough to warrant it back into main deck for now. I am looking for more value spells at low cost that can do a multitude of things, like the new modern horizon cards. I am going to be testing out the Ranger-Captain of Eos , Force of Vigor , as well as Force of Despair for sure!

Hey I came from the Advertise your Commander deck! Your Primer is very detailed, and I love it.+1 upvote! I always like having one way of countering a spell in almost all my decks, but that’s just me. If your like me I would add Mana Tithe , it’s very helpful when someone plays a good ol Sol Ring turn one, but besides those turn one plays it’s kinda inconsistent, just wanted to ,just wanted to mention that. Since this is graveyard themed, Sepulchral Primordial is good. Even though Abrupt Decay can’t be countered I still suggest Path to Exile over it, because it’s mana cost, and also versatility, and versatility wins games.

I would recommend Burning Inquiry and Fevered Visions and Underworld Dreams . Startled Awake  Flip could also be fun but is probably not the best option. Memory Erosion could also be fun!

As a backup win condition you may also consider more graveyard recursion such as Sepulchral Primordial and Wrexial, the Risen Deep .

You may also want to include more ramp, as I'm only seeing Obelisk of Grixis . Maybe add the signets and maybe Mind Stone and a few more mana rocks.

Hope this helps!
