Sygg, River Cutthroat Discussion

Welcome to EDH. This looks like a great tribal deck and rogues are a lot of fun. It looks like you have figured out that you can't play red. The rule of EDH require that you can only have the mana symbols that are in your commander. Noggle Bandit is technically red so you will have to cut that card as well.
I had a Sygg, River Cutthroat deck back in the day and I had a lot of fun effects that caused people to take a few points of life loss so I draw cards on their turn. Not sure where your budget is but Contaminated Bond and Revenge of Ravens are some ways to get a few extra cards; Revenge of Ravens also works as a deterrent to people attacking you. Other cards to think about are Bloodchief Ascension and Painful Quandary.

Hey Thanks armlessbastard ! I think you are probably correct about Crosis's Chamber. I think I was just throwing in everything i could find that added grixis colors without really reading them. I'll probably shave a rock or two in favor of some more basic lands (I think I overthought it on my first go round). I really need to lean more into the +1+1 counters synergy that Marchessa provides, because it feels like im not really utilizing her to her fullest potential. I hate to say it, because it would be a lot more work, but there may be a commander that fits the archetype i'm going for better. Sygg, River Cutthroat may be better.

Yeah, I was working on a discard deck around Sygg, River Cutthroat. I absolutely LOVE Tinybones, though.

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth, Restock, Reap, Wildest Dreams, Once and Future, All Suns' Dawn, Seasons Past, Creeping Renaissance, Hanna, Ship's Navigator, Muldrotha, the Gravetide, Nature's Spiral, etc.
I'd include Blackblade Reforged no matter what. Also, Kethis, the Hidden Hand would be good. A decent amount of 2-4 CMC legends with strong utility to boost Sisay would be prudent. Anafenza, the Foremost, Lavinia, Azorious Renegade, Sygg, River Cutthroat, Gaddock Teeg etc.

My recommendations :
I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.
MANA COST TOO HIGH
I would first add better ramp, better draw, potential Stax, tutors and then other win cons.
Verity Circle (good against dorks)
Plunge into Darkness (a good Impulse)
CONSULT COMBO Demonic Consultation
AD NAUSEAM COMBO Angel's Grace
Ad Nauseam (draw whole deck, can Windfall and make everyone die while AG means you can't lose
Heliod Walking Ballista
Rocks that produce at least three mana total (outlet is extort with blind obedience or crypt ghast) If have pristine Talisman gain infinite life, which is infinite draw with commander
Didn't look at landbase

Have you considered leaning a bit more into Rogues? They have a really nice lords (Stinkdrinker Bandit/Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive/Sygg, River Cutthroat) and some nice equipment (Cloak and Dagger). Unstable Mutation is a better alternative to Unholy Strength. Even though it will eventually kill your creature you can sneak in up to 10 damage with a 1 power unblockable creature before that happens. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, Sygg, River Cutthroat is part blue, and can't be in the deck. As a replacement, I recommend either Walking Ballista, which is like a second Triskelion, or either Tooth and Nail or Defense of the Heart, both of which can find both parts of your combo.

Actually my favorite politics deck is piloted by Sisay, Weatherlight Captain. It is... admittedly, not anything extraordinary, but I like it cuz it's quirky and it's a deck that can group hug in the early game and really punch through in the late game (with Sygg, River Cutthroat, Arvad the Cursed, and Basandra, Battle Seraph to push opponents into awfully inopportune attacks).
That said, I think that Marchesa excels at turning opponents against one another and accelerating the game with attacks and I really like that. I play it in a hypothetical Zurgo Helmsmasher politics deck. I was considering putting Zurgo in its place, as he really exemplifies how I take something that's pretty lame, honestly, and makes puts an unexpected spin on it.
