Not gonna lie I was seriously considering using him as my general and now I'm even more inspired!

Ya need Torpor Orb, and maybe Sundial of the Infinite could work too.

Since you're winning by commander damage, I would give him some voltron cards such as Tainted Strike, Aqueous Form, Assault Strobe, Temur Battle Rage, Clout of the Dominus, Blood Mist, Phyresis, and Psychotic Fury.

I'm with pskinn01 on Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors. You can also sport cards like Berserk, Tainted Strike and Xenagos, God of Revels which let you one shot players with Prossh. A few token producing cards as well and you should be good.

Other than that, you can include all the good budget ramp, draw, tutoring and removal and you have your deck.

Thanks for the comments.

chadsansing - Tainted Strike could be awesome. I'll try to get my hands on one, and do the same with the Lilies. I have a Phyrexian Reclamation so I'll test that out as I often run out of gas in the late game and it would help a lot.

multimedia - Filth, Profane Command and Oblivion Stone all seem like great cards to add eventually. For some reason Lashwrithe doesn't appeal to me, but I don't know why. And I have Stronghold Rats, so they'll definitely be going in.

Thanks again for the suggestions.

Very cool Drana list.

Have you tested with Tainted Strike in addition to Glistening Oil? I also wonder if the other Lilies - particularly Liliana, Death's Majesty and Liliana, the Last Hope might be helpful additional recursion effects along with something like Dread Return or Phyrexian Reclamation. Maybe also see if Torment of Hailfire is any good?

Happy playing!

Maybe Tainted Strike for a very sneaky infect kill shot?

Hey, I've played Prossh some myself and there are some cards missing in your list that I've had great experiences with: Eldritch Evolution is amazing in this deck, since sacrificing the commander can get Craterhoof Behemoth. But even aside from that, it's a great card that finds you the creature you need quickly and for a reasonable cost.
Tainted Strike is potentially the best pump spell for Prossh. It's extremely easy to 1-hit kill someone with that.
Cryptolith Rite turns all your creatures into mana producers, which is insane with all the tokens generared by Prossh. It allows for some very explosive turns. Earthcraft can be even better since it allows summoning sick creatures to tap for mana, but the card is way more expensive.
Shamanic Revelation also makes use of the number of creatures generated by Prossh - usually you draw 6-10 cards and gain some life for just 5 mana.
Shaman of Forgotten Ways is another excellent tool for Prossh, since it ramps into the commander nicely, then turns into serious threat with it's formidable ability.
