Try the following: Lethal Vapors and/or Tainted AEther.

I've got plenty more of ideas if ya want more, this kind of magic is my sort of thing :P Just don't forget to add draw into this deck. Phyrexian Arena, Rhystic Study and so on will keep you pissing people off with card advantage.

If you control 4 enchentments, the fifth will enter as a creature and will trigger Tainted AEther. This is true whether you cast it as a spell or return it to the battlefield from the graveyard using Starfield of Nyx's ability.

So let's say my opponent has Tainted AEther on the battlefield, and I have Starfield of Nyx on the battlefield with over five enchantments. If I cast another enchantment, will it enter as a creature, and therefore I have to sacrifice a creature or land? Or does it enter as an enchantment, and after it enters Starfield of Nyx turns it into a creature (if that is how that works).

Polluted Bonds, Bloodchief Ascension are both pretty similar to Painful Quandary. I think Spreading Plague, Wound Reflection, Overburden and Tainted AEther are all pretty mean and similar to other suggested cards.

I could see Languish being good, but it depends on your play group, also put in a Rakdos Guildgate instead of the Transguild Promenade, finally might I suggest Painful Quandary and Tainted AEther and possibly Malfegor? Overall +1 from me :)

I like what you have going here. I'm currently working on a deck with a similar strategy and just thought I'd share some of the cards that I've come across that you might be interested in:

Repercussion - is brutal against creature-heavy decks, especially since you're running AEther Flash and Blasphemous Act. It won't bother you so much because of your low creature count.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel - works really well with all the black enchantments you are running. He's a good way to get ahead of the symmetric life-loss enchantments you are running.

Fanatic of Mogis - same vein as the Merchant above.

Pyrostatic Pillar - great way to punish many kinds of decks.

Liability - punishes graveyard and creature-heavy decks. You wont be as affected because of your low-creature count and more resilient permanents.

Dictate of the Twin Gods - as another Furnace of Rath effect.

Crystal Chimes - to help recover after a Back to Nature or Nevinyrral's Disk

Beseech the Queen - just another tutor effect to consider.

Forbidden Orchard - fixes your mana and the drawback of giving them a creature is often mitigated by Tainted AEther, AEther Flash, and/or Lethal Vapors.

Spreading Plague - your commander is indestructible, so you don't care. It will wreck non colorless/artifact creature decks.
