Did a few playtests. Not bad but still a bit slow in my opinion. I would: -1 Mogis's Marauder (more important late-game), -1 Tragic Slip and replace them with +1 Death Cultist and +1 Alchemist's Apprentice.

Also, +4 Polluted Delta, or at least Evolving Wilds ;)

I love this deck idea. The main cards in it are great. Some of the support cards are not what I would choose for Commander, just because there are other cards with more effects.

Instead of Cancel, consider Spell Crumple, Hinder, or Dissipate which can bury a commander in their library, or remove a non-commander card for good.

Instead of Doom Blade and Terror, which are limited by color, consider Hero's Downfall kills any creature or planeswalker, or something like Death Wind, Dismember, Nightmarish End, or Tragic Slip which can effectively kill most creatures, including indestructible targets.

Sizzle seems a little underwhelming. I'm guessing it is there primarily for color balance, but I think Exsanguinate is a significantly more powerful multiplayer card, and benefits from your land ramp.

Instead of Erase, which is fairly narrow in its scope, consider Wipe Clean, which also has cycling as an option, or something like Banishing Stroke or Oblation which can remove permanents from the board and bury them.

A few of your creatures are a bit underwhelming, like Lotus Guardian and Tek. Honestly, something like Manalith or Commander's Sphere would probably be better than Lotus Guardian, even though it isn't a creature. Soul of New Phyrexia might be a good addition to your creatures, since it can protect your lands.

Overall, still a great deck! +1

wow. ok, you just opened a few doors in my head here. i didn't quite think at Smallpox as an option for this deck, but yeah, can't see why it shouldn't be in.. Actually it looks to me like it could totally replace Bone Splinters, it's more effective, and as a solid removal i still can rely on Tragic Slip.

Liliana of the Veil is indeed too much for my pockets at the moment.

I'll skip to what really hit me:

1) Dark Prophecy could replace Grim Haruspex, the pros are: harder to remove, more devotion.. but the cons would be losing a 3/2 meatwall and the damage that can be serious (and i mean Griselbrand serious!). needs some thinking and testing, could be a half suicide.

2) i couldn't even remember the existance of He Who Hungers. He is at Lightning Bolt sight, which isn't nice, but if i have 5 mana to play it and he doesn't get killed, it means i actually can discard my opponent's hand, lands included, which would be rather insane, yeah! I'll immediately insert a few proxies in the deck. Even if it's not a control-ish deck whatsoever, this guy is.. tasty. We'll see if it's going to be seriously useful or just for fun.

About the other guys you mentioned, i had considered them, but i realized that the core of the deck doesn't allow many side-effect cards, so i had to focus on the few ones that i found more universally useful.

You surely helped me a lot, buddy, so thanks, and i'll let you know if it gets better!

I actually run it in a black sacrifice based deck, with things like Quest for the Gravelord, Mortician Beetle, Skirsdag High Priest, and Tragic Slip. Is it super competitive deck? No, but it's a ton of fun.

My deck will easily proc Tragic Slips morbid. So I believe it would be a solid card. It just that I am hesitant when it comes to removing cards, so if you would guide me, I will gladly add tragic. Thinking of removing 1x Go for the Throat and 1x Doom Blade. For 2x Tragic Slip.

Mindbreak Trap is a side card specifically against storm decks. Normal hand disruption simply doesn't slow them enough on its own, and can even fuel things like Pyromancer Ascension. Oh, I'd like to bring up Tragic Slip by the way.

Well I can change that. Cut Doom Blade , Tragic Slip , Mirran Crusader , Blood Artist and 1 copy of Hero of Bladehold . either cut Sword of Feast and Famine or replace it with Sword of Fire and Ice or Sword of War and Peace . You only need 4 anthems, 6 is too many. Add 4 Thoughtseize , 2 Inquisition of Kozilek , 3 Tidehollow Sculler , 4 Raise the Alarm , and 1 more Zealous Persecution . Take a look at my deck Swarm and Conquer V 2.0
