Sever the Bloodline Discussion

Instant and sorcs are really powerful. I'd cut Brainstorm for Ponder or Preordain. there aren't loads of ways to shuffle the two cards you put back with brainstorm away in this deck and with out that interaction (just drawing the two less useful cards in the next two drawsteps) I'd rather have some more selective card selection. Silence the Believers is awesome as it exiles and can hit multiple targets late game, I love that card in pretty much any black deck along with Sever the Bloodline which you already have ;) I don't like Recoil It's not very powerful in multiplayer, i'd rather draw a card than have my opp discard so Into the Roil is my prefered choice in that slot although im not sure you need the bounce at all as you should have removal covered out of the black half of your deck. Wraths are good, I like Devastation Tide in decks without a lot of permanents, I know you want to re-buy ETB effects but I think Evacuation might just be better as you want to keep your lovely noncreature permanents in play. I like Damnation if money is no object and Consume the Meek hits none of your guys but lots of annoying green and white utility/ramp guys.

Have you had a chance to play this since changing it? It looks like you've made a lot of strong card swaps.
You might consider Tolaria West - it's easy to cut a different land for it and it lets you find Academy Ruins or Bojuka Bog. If you have the Ruins already you can also use it to find Tormod's Crypt which is a fun, reusable combo with the Ruins whenever you're about to wheel.
A card that I play in my red wheeling decks is Recoup since most wheels are sorceries. Added bonus of it not mattering if you have to wheel it away from your hand initially.
I would prefer Sever the Bloodline to Silence the Believers since I value flashback over strive, but that's probably just a personal thing... It is also true Ashes to Ashes is very easy to counter in a deck that likes to sac creatures at instant speed.
Tormod's Crypt vs. Relic of Progenitus: Both great cards. If you can find room for both then heck, go for it. If you can only run 1 I'd vote for the Crypt since I like to keep my 'yard and you're only ever going to be able to use Relic once per game.

Since you are playing against a value deck I think you're going to need more control - you just have to live long enough to assemble your death machine.
Extract from Darkness -> Magus of the Wheel: EfD's mill helps Neren more than you, and if you really want to use their graveyard I'd start with Animate Dead or similiar. If you don't want to shell out for Wheel of Fortune the Magus is a decent alternative.
Other good cards to consider:
Leyline of the Void: I see this in your Maybeboard. Should be useful.
I think in general you just need more gravehate, exile, counters & kill spells. A few tutors would probably help as well.
Grain of salt I've never played either of these commanders, but I think I've played enough similar ones to hopefully be useful. Hope at least one of these suggestions proves helpful! I also apologize for the formatting of my post. I haven't figured everything out, yet.

intresting deck, Sever the Bloodline makes a good additon to decleration in stone so you'd be drawing that card basically twice as often. plus it cost no $:) also Shadowborn Demon is a great form of rmoval + large flier + an alternate to Xathrid Demon

May I suggest Puppeteer Clique? It has been a power house for me. Also if yo ufind a card you like in someones GY before end of turn just sac their creature instead of letting it exile to get the value of repeated uses. Between Sheoldred, Meren and Puppeteer Clique I was chaining cards like crazy from the GY and more or less had cleared my library of all lands. If you need a slot I see you still running Sever the Bloodline. If it is working for you great. But I find it to often as a single target removal spell for 4 mana and 7 to be recast. Meh.
+1 for Meren! Check out my deck here and feel free to comment as you like as well.
