Sinister Possession Discussion

(Sorry I posted trice, Tappedout kept telling my comment hadn't been posted so I tried a couple time over.)

Anyways, I kinda feel your deck is trying to do many conflicting things at once.

You both have cards that try to kill with life loss, and with poison.

If you are on your way to infect your opponent, that Sinister Possession is kinda going to be a dead card, and if you have your opponent at a low life total, Phyresis is not going to be the card you want to see.

You also have this sub theme of land locking, but you don't have that much card draw. Neither do you have too many pieces to support that strategy. You can justify running Spreading Seas in most slow decks, because it cantrips, but if you don't draw multiple Contaminated Grounds, that card isn't going to do much either. And that's assuming your opponent doesn't just run black themselves.

Dark Ritual isn't modern legal. Also, judging by your disription, I think you missunderstood how Sinister Possession works.

Spotted a potential piece of tech in my collection:

Sinister Possession

Each time they block your attack, they give you mana/enable your Commander to be cast. They then either never use the blocker or keep attacking and leave themselves open for counterattack.

All for one mana.

Love it. Maybe Visions of Brutality and Sinister Possession over the Persecutions?

So, for starters, I'd definitely take out Akroma's Memorial and either sell that bad boy or put it in literally any creature-focued EDH deck that you have, because all the keywords in the world will still only make your Stuffy Doll a 1/1. I'd also take out Assault Formation, since it only affects 4 of your creatures (and even then, it's negligible gain). Also, I'd nix Crawlspace since it defeats the purpose of Nightly Hunting. Gravity Well is redundant if you draw more than 1, so I'd just keep 2 copies.

To put in: Lust for War, Contaminated Bond, Contaminated Ground, Nettling Curse, Sinister Possession, Visions of Brutality, Goblin Diplomats. I'd put in Jaddi Offshoot or any Black creature with lifelink (Gifted Aetherborn? Vampire Cutthroat?) if you're concerned about Burn. I know your deck doesn't include B, but having those Auras will help you accelerate victory (honestly, you almost could take out all of the G cards in this deck).

Hope this helps! Mention me if I can clarify or otherwise be helpful.

I like the idea of the deck, especially the grey merchant finish. My advice would be to cut the Sinister Possessions and Visions of Brutality for harder removal, and throw in a Phyrexian Obliterator. Curving Gravecrawler to Relentless Dead to Geralf's Messenger to Phyrexian Obliterator to grey merchant is a 24-life swing, and just obliterator to merchant is 12

Possibly Stab Wound for Sinister Possession. I know it's two CMC higher but it either kills a 2 toughness creature or forces them to take 2 every turn unlike Sinister Possession. If they sac the Stabbed creature then it activates Morbid for Tragic Slip.
