Whenever Stromkirk Occultist deals combat damage to a player, exile the top card of your library. Until end of turn, you map play that card.

Stromkirk Occultist Discussion

Anaba Ancestor seems really bad- it doesnt get any real benefit from your commander because you have to not attack with it to maintain its ability, or its just a 2 mana 1/1. Plus, on board +1/+1 just is not a very powerful effect, even if repeatable.
Similarly, Flurry of Horns seems underwhelming. You have to get up to 5 mana, and then you get two vanilla 2/3s. This is the top end of your curve, and still does very little for you. Anything that is five or more mana should be really powerful. Thus, the cards that I feel are too expensive for their effect are: Flurry of Horns, Master of Cruelties, Warchanter of Mogis, Behold the Beyond (what three cards would you tutor for after spending 7 mana? There really isnt any way to use this to help you win- it can be a lot of value, sure, but youre probably off with either straight up draw or cheaper tutors to get your draw), Minotaur Aggressor, and then replace Plague Wind with In Garruk's Wake, at least. It is almost strictly better.
This deck seems like it could make use of a Whip of Erebos, if only for the life gain. You have a lot of pain effects, and Whip of Erebos is a very powerful artifact with both utility and circumstantial advantage.
A lot of your card draw comes from one time sorceries or Costly Plunder. It feels like this deck could use some more repeatable card draw, like Greed or Erebos, God of the Dead, or even some of the red psuedo draw like Outpost Siege and Chandra, Torch of Defiance. You may also want Phyrexian Arena, but you dont get to choose whether to draw that card. Other good cards for card advantage: Commune with Lava, Oracle's Vault, Stromkirk Occultist, Chandra, Flamecaller (wheel), vance's blasting cannons , Arguel's Blood Fast, Conqueror's Galleon, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tamiyo's Journal, and The Scorpion God.
Ok I g2g, but looks good! looking forward to playing this!

Hi there! I worked on a very similar build before the Commander 2017 Series, and I have a few tips.
this Olivia is stronger as a Timmy Aggro general, so you want to have some brutally efficient early game, rather than cards like Dark Impostor, which are high value but very slow. Also, it would be much better for you to add vampires and vampire synergy, rather than Madness cards, as they are less efficient. Here are my recommendations
CUT: Archfiend of Ifnir, Dark Impostor, Insatiable Gorgers, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Stromkirk Occultist. Vampire Cutthroat, Voldaren Pariah Flip, Faith of the Devoted, Gibbering Descent, Fiery Temper, Alms of the Vein, Gisa's Bidding, From Under the Floorboards, Blood Tribute, Cultivator's Caravan, Hedron Archive
ADD: Vampire Nocturnus, Bloodline Keeper Flip, Captivating Vampire, Olivia Voldaren, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Smuggler's Copter, Lightning Bolt, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Living Death, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Coat of Arms, Phyrexian Arena, Outpost Siege, Living Death.

I have a similar deck that runs Smuggler's Copter and Stromkirk Occultist both of which I cannot live without. Additionally, I love the synergy with Insolent Neonate and Macabre Waltz as they have great payoffs.

Exsanguinate would go well with all the mana acceleration.
Collective Brutality is versatile.
Maybe look into some madness cards. You have plenty of outlets for being able to cast the madness cost.
Voldaren Pariah, From Under the Floorboards, Stromkirk Occultist, Bloodhall Priest (I think might be one of the best fits), Incorrigible Youths, Avacyn's Judgment, I could go on with some more but I feel like I'm suggesting too many at once haha

You should consider Olivia, Mobilized for War, Taurean Mauler, Asylum Visitor, Gifted Aetherborn, Stromkirk Condemned, Heir of Falkenrath Flip, Olivia's Bloodsworn, Stromkirk Occultist, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodhall Priest, Falkenrath Gorger, and Voldaren Pariah Flip.

I'm unsure if this is out of your budget but Captivating Vampire is amazing! I also suggest finding room for these cards:
Dark Impostor, removal on a stick, with exile to boot. Can take over games if left unchecked.
Indulgent Aristocrat A nice sac outlet that buffs your vampires.
Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet removal on a stick, and creates more Vampires.
Stromkirk Condemned can buff your vamps and works well with graveyard synergies and discard synergies.
Olivia, Mobilized for War makes non vamps into vamps. Gives haste and buffs them up.
Stromkirk Occultist can create card advantage. Hard to argue with that.
Sengir Nosferatu because this is the single most flavorful vampire in mtg.
Hope these suggestions were helpful! Let me know if i could do anything more to help!
