Sorceress Queen Discussion

I'd be tempted to say Spirit of the Labyrinth because it's only beneficial when your opponents are utilizing draw effects which is very situational. If they are not, she's pretty useless and just as fragile as Sorceress Queen.

Nice to have seen the 1/1 Snakes be set free on Thursday.
Black Sun's Zenith $3 would be all star.
Really like Sorceress Queen, very cool.
Gladehart Cavalry for CMC 7, he adds +1/+1 counters, which actually remove -1/-1 counters, which you then won't be able to proliferate. He's counter productive with this Commander.
Carnifex Demon can keep making snakes for . CMC 6 for 4/4 Flying + 2 1/1 Snakes then for another 2 1/1 Snakes and he becomes a 6/6 Flying. Pretty decent. You have some other CMC 7 creatures that do much less for $0.60, like Arachnus Spinner, Skysnare Spider.
Midnight Banshee could create a few 1/1 Snakes, he doesn't hit himself or Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Just think of the poor 2/2 Wolfs though! He also is Whither, much better than a Arachnus Spinner or Skysnare Spider.
Grim Affliction the proliferate seems good, but not sure how many lingering -1/-1 there are. Definetely if you continue to pump up your -1/-1 counters through Wither and ETB's it would be useful. It's 2 1/1 Snakes but could be many more depending on the board state.
Some ideas anyway.

I really like this deck, looks very tuned! Do you run out of cards a lot? Maybe some recursion could be good like Phyrexian Reclamation or Oversold Cemetery? Also Wickerbough Elder could be clever with all the -1/-1 effects running around. Does that deck struggle without the commander on the field doing his thing? Maybe run a Sorceress Queen as a back up? if you're running enough elfs Wirewood Symbiote could be another untap effect.
Hopefully some of the suggestions are helpful, if you have the time could you check out my budget Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest build? I think I need another pair of eyes on it to make sure I didn't miss anything. Thanks!

Ok, I've made some changes with what I had on hand. Here's what I've done so far:
Now, as I acquire some of the other cards, I'll need to decide what stays and what goes. What should I switch out for Buried Alive at this point? I do have a Jet Medallion, but do I really need it? Hopefully I'll get some play testing done with it this weekend and see how it goes.

I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.
The Inkmoth Nexus and Blinkmoth Nexus won't come back because Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker says to return the creature card; they are land cards regardless of what they were on the battlefield. I recommend replacing them with Reliquary Tower and notably Winding Canyons. With all the ways of getting mana on others' turns you can use it quite effectively. Other lands you should consider include: Volrath's Stronghold, Crypt of Agadeem, Westvale Abbey Flip, High Market, Lake of the Dead, Vesuva Maze of Ith and Wasteland (instead of Tectonic Edge.)
Glistening Oil seems a little out of place. Are you using it to make your larger creatures small enough to be returned? If not then you have no reason to play it. If so then you should cut it because there are much better options. You could use Fevered Convulsions to achieve the same thing faster despite the mana investment (and you can use it on enemy creatures.) However, I recommend Sorceress Queen instead, for not only serving the same purpose but also being more versatile and being a creature with power 0 it fits very well.
I don't like Kiku, Night's Flower here because it cant answer anything immediately with summoning sickness and is far less efficient (and fast) than your already insane amount of removal. I recommend replacing it with Zulaport Cutthroat as another Blood Artist. You can also add Falkenrath Noble
At first glance AEther Vial looks really good considering all the 2 and 3 drops. but after thinking about it I realized that there is a far better option you can use: Vedalken Orrery. You may have to spend more mana but you can use it multiple times every every turn rather than once each turn rotation once you get an altar out.
Other cards you could consider are: Marionette Master, Summoner's Egg, Triskelion, Triskelavus, Mesmeric Fiend, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Noxious Toad, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Dutiful Attendant, Workshop Assistant, Gnawing Zombie, Chimney Imp, Insidious Bookworms, Disciple of Phenax, Fume Spitter, Rotting Rats, Ravenous Rats, Corrupt Court Official, Vampiric Rites, Dark Prophecy, Contamination, Shadows of the Past, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Gate to Phyrexia, Disciple of Griselbrand, Harvester of Souls, Mindlash Sliver, Deathgreeter, Kalastria Healer, Altar of the Brood, Altar of Dementia, Black Market, Disciple of the Vault, Blasting Station, Abyssal Gatekeeper, Bitter Ordeal, Buried Alive, Palace Siege, Soot Imp, Tree of Perdition, Spine of Ish Sah, Trading Post, Solemn Simulacrum, Thrull Surgeon, Slithery Stalker, Ashen-Skin Zubera, Geth's Grimoire, Killing Wave, Necroskitter, Thorn of the Black Rose, Myr Moonvessel, and Arcane Lighthouse (just in case they have a Sigarda, Host of Herons or something.) Also if you can afford it: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale.

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is one if my favourite cards in the deck, actually. Ashenmoor Liege use to be in the list for the longest time until I realised that it didn't do enough for this deck really other than be royalty, a double anthem would be good if this deck was less... full of mono stuff and more of a beat down. Sorceress Queen is very interesting, I love that she can't become a tapped 0/2, because that would make untapping so OP. She is also the self proclaimed Queen which is just so fucking awesome, if only she was repainted to be more like Sudden Spoiling or if they were permanently 0/2, EOT just seems a little too fringe, maybe if Voltron decks take over my meta though.
Thanks for the suggestions! This deck is my baby and I may not know what's best for it (30 lands with 2 accelerants is bad even in partials) but this is EDH where sometimes another 5 drop is about the same as running a swamp, right?
