Tormented Soul can't block and is unblockable.
Tormented Soul is also a great one drop just to get cheap points in during early game
So why don't you just take out Murder for Hero's Downfall and remove Tormented Soul from the deck and make it a standard deck. Everything else is legal in standerd and the stuff that you have that is not standard is not good. And Doom Blade is better than Asphyxiate (if you are facing a black deck then just side in Dark Betrayal ). Wall of Frost is also a awesome card and Dissolve is a better Cancel . Check out my deck it is a Dimir control mill.
I see you've thrown a few pump spells in there. I was going through my knowledge of unblockables could you splash some black to use Tormented Soul ?
I recommend pulling out the Angel's Feather and Demon's Horn , this ain't a life gain deck. Switch them for two Tormented Soul . Unblockable, and with exalted, they're great. Also switch the murders for Hero's Downfall , cause it hits planeswalkers too with no drawbacks compared to murder.
I had this huge long comment before I was going to post and I just came up with a tonne of ideas for your deck Gavin and then my little bro Kyan accidently made me go out of it so now I have to think of all this again damm.
Well the last thing I wrote was about Disciple of Bolas if you managed to get a tonne of tokens with high power low defence it would be cheaper for you to use. Also to keep on using this ability add Deadeye Navigator to your deck. Deadeye is an amazing card. A great card to do this with is Veilborn Ghoul it's perfect for this situation and every time a swamp enters the battlefield you can do this ability again.
I was saying in the old comment you needed more black mana nine including gates is not enough for your extort and also half your deck is basically black and you get mana problems a lot. Add Chromatic Lantern and Reflecting Pool to your deck or one of them it'd be great. Also add more cards like Brute Force and Aqueous Form they are great.
If you use Chromatic Lantern and Reflecting Pool you can use other colours like there is as green card Phytoburst that'd be great or add more Dark Favor s and Brute Force s especially useful for Tormented Soul and Invisible Stalker .
Gavin you should see the deck I put on tapped out it's called Slivers United - The best Sliver deck ever. I mainly put that last bit on so people would read it. Jake used his deck, my main deck and your deck against it and alone mine thrashed them all and no one as been able to thrash my own deck only you have even been able to beat it so yea I am very happy.
Also Deadeye Navigator should be used on Abhorrent Overlord as well and then add Archaeomancer to your deck for instants and sorceries also Rite of Replication is amazing with Archaeomancer but you need 9 mana for it to be amazing.
To keep using instants and sorceries use Disperse or Deadeye Navigator and also if you want 5 instants or sorceries at once from the graveyard use Rite of Replication on Archaeomancer also add Cancel maybe and maybe a Fog Bank which is an amazing defender. Because if you buff up Tormented Soul what happens when you have nothing else and they attack you.
Add Curiosity because you love to pick up cards. Add a Exquisite Blood and a Sanguine Blood and a Master of Cruelties they're great. Maybe more Ordeal of Thassa they're great. Give Master of Cruelties Aqueous Form and then extort later and tadaa game over.
There is a card that makes abilities cost 2 less mana but not free if it cost 2 mana then you could cast it for 1 mana. If you had 2 of them on the battlefield you can use Deadeye Navigator and Xathrid Gorgon and other mana costing abilities much more frequently and cheaper.
Also with Stolen Identity you can create so many Abhorrent Overlord s and create so many 1/1 harpies with flying and you can create so many Archaeomancer s and always use your cards over and over again.
I can't think of anything more at the moment so I hope you found my comment helpful and if anyone has any ideas about my comment good or bad please share I love to learn and also check my deck out as well;
