Shizo, Death's Storehouse Discussion

At Profet93, I just checked out your deck and it definitely looks really nice!!! I almost went the creature-less route on this one but it would screw with my playgroup's meta a bit too much and would draw a lot more hate. I'll leave some comments on your page.
Shizo, Death's Storehouse is not needed here because Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed already has horsemanship making him virtually unblockable. I have not come across another horsemanship user and the card would not be useful enough with my other creatures to merit a slot.
I like Overwhelming Forces more than Decree of Pain because of flavor and it being a much more political card. Sometimes you only want to knock down one unruly opponent. Also, it has no effect on your board-state (aside from drawing you extra cards).
Trading Post is a possibility. I'll need to test this out.
My grief with Corpse Dance is that I need to keep track of the order of my graveyard. Once people start seeing cards in my graveyard, everyone wants a look and which creature is the "top" creature becomes a blur. I love the card, but the added logistics make it frustrating to use. It might make a return soon and, if so, I'll cut out Necromancy. I'll probably also cut Reanimate in favor of Chainer, Dementia Master.
Snuff Out is there for flavor. I have the version with the Liliana art as well as the Liliana version of Demonic Tutor and SDCC versions of the usable Liliana planeswalkers. I could probably cut it for a foil Karn Liberated, but it has scored me some sweet kills.
Thanks for the advice!! It is definitely greatly appreciated. Always glad to run into another Xiahou Dun user!

Run Hellkite Charger. You can cheat it out, pay , then cheat something else out. Also, Goblin Tunneler, Break Through the Line, Fear, Rogue's Passage, and Shizo, Death's Storehouse would break the game, allowing you to swing in every turn unblocked without having to worry about Kaalia dying.

There is also a of legendary lands you could consider running as they are usually better than a basic of that color.
White: Eiganjo Castle
Black: Shizo, Death's Storehouse

Sorry for taking so long to get to this. Overall, I think the deck is probably a bit slow for what you're trying to do? Are you trying to go with a counters theme? Or are you really wanting to push the legendary theme? I honestly think you could make a better deck by not bothering with all legendaries, which feels kind of janky, but rather just good stuff. My philosophy about life gain in edh is that it is bad haha. It's only worthwhile if you are gaining repeated utility out of it (i.e. using Phyrexian Reclamation or Erebos, God of the Dead). I also believe that signets should be added to just about every edh deck out there. A few suggestions:
Suggestions to add:
Lightning Greaves, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Rogue's Passage, Conqueror's Flail, Hero of Bladehold, Chrome Mox, Aurelia, the Warleader, Sun Titan, Solemn Simulacrum, Grave Titan, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Oracle of Mul Daya, Krosan Grip, Beast Within, Explosive Vegetation, Gruul Signet, Golgari Signet, Selesnya Signet, Sylvan Library, Mana Crypt, Ghostway, Boros Charm, Garruk Wildspeaker, Recruiter of the Guard, Mother of Runes
Suggestions to cut:
Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Thalia's Lancers, Tsabo Tavoc, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Heroes' Podium, Evolving Wilds, Genesis Wave, Harmonize, Momentous Fall, Soul's Majesty, See the Unwritten
If you decide to go with tokens or counters as a theme, of course the requisite Doubling Season and then a card like Assemble the Legion would be fun. Another route you could take is multiple combats.
If you add more ramp, you might be able to shave a land or two. Do you already have this deck built or is it a work in progress?
Let me know if you want me to explain why I'd cut, add, or replace something.

Cryptic Command has only been reprinted in the past two Modern Masters sets, which isn't really much when you consider the limited print run off those sets.
All in all, I'm really badly hoping that CC gets reprinted, because I haven't got my playset yet, and it WILL spike back up if it doesn't see another reprint.
Also I'm taking a look at the last land slot remaining between Selenya Guildgate and Simic Guildgate. There's about 13 lands between them legal in Modern. Removing all cards part of a cycle of lands and cards eligible for a reprint, we get Shimmering Grotto and Seraph Sanctuary of which I believe Shimmering Grotto to be the choice here. Of the cycles I omitted, Shelldock Isle, Shizo, Death's Storehouse and Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep could be reprinted as a utility land.
But odds are, we'll get Grotto for more mana fixing.

Wait. Of course it wouldn't. duh. But why the Shizo, Death's Storehouse? you don't have any legendary creatures in your deck, so an extra Swamp would just be better (Because of Wasteland and Path to Exile, mostly.)
