Propaganda --> Words of Wind - Reason: Words of Wind has more functionality, can help reusing morphs and also blunce some opponents' stuff (can also be detrinental if they have lots of ETB though)
Silent Specter --> Vraska, Relic Seeker - Reason: Although he is a nice flier, I didn't feel the discard effect would be that useful (never got to play it though). But Vraska can get nice blockers on the field, has targeted removal and a win-con if survives.

Velkaarn Yes, Scythe Specter is what I wanted instead of Silent Specter. But I built this with cards actually available for me to purchase. Where I live (Japan), I couldnt find one at the store I buy from. I will get one maybe off of eBay or something and add it. It is more powerful and I like the art better as well. Ill leave it up as a suggestion until I actually get it. For now I like to stick with cards I actually own. Thanks for the upvote.

Nice deck. I would run Leyline of the Void main deck. It is really powerful in both discard and mill decks. Most commander decks have some kind of graveyard interaction which you can then annihilate + it functions really well with Ill-Gotten Gains which then becomes an advantage entirely for you. I would remove Ghirapur Orrery from the deck, which I don't really get? Doesn't it help your opponents a lot, or is there some kind of plan to it?

Also Mind Twist is a Classic and Silent Specter and Shimian Specter could be some nice touches.

@Firebones675 As this deck is already special, I don't want it to be hated because of the infinite combo... which I do run in other decks. Thanks for your trample suggestion ! That added a solid Archetype of Aggression.

@swisigah Odric is a good suggestion... he was on the chopping block for a while. I didn't end up using him becuase I did not feel like he did enough. I already have first strike and deathtouch because of my commander, so really he would only buff flying and vigilance... which are great, but I feel there are not ENOUGH of those effects to fill a card slot to exploit them.

@Rzepkanut I like Ashling, the Extinguisher and Legion Loyalist. Because my field will be teaming with abilities... I rather swing with my army than just Master of Cruelties. I like Silent Specter but i feel Okiba-Gang Shinobi is better as it is much easier to cast.

Thanks for the help and great suggestions!!

Master of Cruelties, Ashling, the Extinguisher, Silent Specter, Legion Loyalist, Dictate of Heliod

Fun deck...i think using non legends for commanders makes for more variety in the format. I think with a few exceptions they could all be allowed. Cheers.

If it's not too much "off-theme", you could use Coat of Arms. Also: Mind Twist, Silent Specter, Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Treasure Cruise, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Hymn to Tourach, Stupor, Shimian Specter, Nightveil Specter, Hypnotic Specter, Doomsday Specter, Blizzard Specter, Ghastlord of Fugue, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Scepter of Fugue.

Although, I knok a lot of my suggestions are not part of the rogue theme. But if you're in the line of making your opponent discard his/her hand, they are quite good.
