Dark Confidant might be a decent inclusion, since I don't think I have that many high CMC spells (Blasphemous Act and Insurrection).

I try to shy away from the more staple draw and counter spells, since they both synergise less with the deck's other cards and flavor, which is important (though Rhystic Study could be a flavor hit as well, I dislike playing with the card in general). I'd rather draw cards with Shadowmage Infiltrator than with his effective counterpart Phyrexian Altar, counter spells with Voidmage Prodigy instead of Counterspell and so on.

Goblin Bombardment was close to making the list despite its questionable flavor, though, now I've found more sacrifice outlets through Flesh Carver and Thoughtpicker Witch, I'm quite happy with the amount of them.

I don't think you need Tendrils of Agony here - you're not running storm so this feels quite underwhelming. Shadowmage Infiltrator is also underwhelming here - you'd be better off running Whispering Madness or somethign that synergises better with the rest of the deck.

Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith is a good infinite mana outlet as neither of the cards are dead draws on their own.

I would also recommend replacing Trinket Mage with Fabricate - being able to dig for combo pieces is super important and Fabricate does this better.

Interesting deck, so +1 from me, here's my 2 cents.

  1. There are some cards that are great in Commander that fit your theme! Among these are Whispersilk Cloak, Rogue's Passage, Cloak and Dagger, Swiftfoot Boots, Invisible Stalker, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Thalakos Deceiver, and Quietus Spike.

Coastal Piracy also comes to mind.

Paragon of Fierce Defiance should really be Fervor, because if you are going for a haste enabler, you might as well play the best one.

The next cards I'm going to suggest aren't exactly on theme, but I think they do enough in your deck that they should be included regardless, as they have such powerful synergy with what you play.

Among these cards are Levitation, Deceiver Exarch/Pestermite since you run Splinter Twin, Silent-Blade Oni, Dire Undercurrents, Counterspell, Negate, Crawlspace.

If you want any more suggestions feel free to let me know!

Baleful Strix, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Cavern Harpy, Thalakos Seer all good creatures to have that are cheap to grab.

Rite of Replication targeting your commander you will deal 30 damage to each opponent.

Murder your Murder's run Archive Traps drop Lilliana Vess for Glimpse the Unthinkable instantly turns your phantasm deadly. Mind Funeral is just awesome, probably toss Shadowmage Infiltrator for those. Mind Sculpt is a good one as well, you can afford to drop at least 2 Wight of Precinct Six for those guys. Try these add ins, and see how fast you can mill your opponent now. as your deck stands right now, it doesn't have enough win-cons on either side, ie beefed up creatures, or mill fast enough to win. this should help. plus your adds really make your mana use, efficient. speaking of mana, get rid of Reliquary Tower and add Ghost Quarter that way, you can almost ensure your Archive Trap goes off.

Instead of Shadowmage Infiltrator you could run Tormented Soul for a lot cheaper mana-wise.

Praetor's Grasp gives you a fun way to steal a good blue or black centerpiece from an opponent-at the worst it's another Sol Ring or utility.

Since you're playing to avoid being picked on early, you can skip a turn with Magosi, the Waterveil and use it to a get a second turn later when it matters more.

Dauthi Embrace is neat because you can make any creature essentially unblockable-or so that it can't block at a critical juncture. May be fun political wise to aid someone with a swing, or make it so a critical blocker isn't there...

Great deck!
