- Are cards in exile (suspend), considered permanents?
- Can you activate a creatures ability with no actual target?
- Can instant-speed sacrifice effects be used on creatures that enter the battlefield with 0 toughness?
- Does paying a card's cost to activate an ability resolve before the stack is triggered?
- What does Cathar's Crusade trigger on first if I have Edgar Markov as my commander?

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.
Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.
Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:
- Indulgent Aristocrat
- Shadow Alley Denizen
- Legion's Landing Flip
- Vicious Conquistador
- Pulse Tracker
- Legion Lieutenant
- Kalastria Highborn
- Gifted Aetherborn
- Vampire Hexmage
- Olivia's Bloodsworn
- Dusk Legion Zealot
- Drana, Liberator of Malakir
- Forerunner of the Legion
You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.
Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:
- Unclaimed Territory
- Caves of Koilos
- Concealed Courtyard
- Battlefield Forge
- Inspiring Vantage
- Smoldering Marsh
- Sulfurous Springs
- Graven Cairns
- Tainted Field
- Tainted Peak
These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.
Good luck with your deck.

While garagadon doesn't interact with hex parasite like that, it does like having a lot of bodies to sac, and interactions with persist and undying make Geralf's Messenger or Kitchen Finks combos a little smoother, providing an alternative 1 mana outlet to the usual Viscera Seer .
For cards that do interact with parasite, the most notable Dark Depths has been banned a long time ago due to Vampire Hexmage and Thespian's Stage making it too strong. Lost Auramancers , Quicksilver Fountain , Thing in the Ice Flip and the ahmonket 'drop -1-1 counters on your creatures' cards are all interesting options.
Zubera tribal similarly has some pretty amazing lists built around Return to the Ranks and similar 'mass res' spells.

About Green Sun's Zenith , it's been a silly mistake to say that, but with the spoiler season and other decks and tests of other formats that I'm doing, I have many things on my mind.

Thanks for your +1 and the suggestion!

I wonder if something like Vampire Hexmage might be worth it - committing more to the dark depths strategy.

You might want to think about taking out some of the lands and swap them for fetchable ones. It will help thin out your deck really well once you start recurring fetches from your grave.
I would replace Vampire Hexmage for Thespian's Stage since it's a land that can instantly become Marit lage, as well as any other land you may need. Also think about Mirage Mirror . It can become any permanent except plansewalker. I would take out Vanishing , but I think you have it there to blink Muldrotha, the Gravetide to abuse her ability.
If you want any ideas, check out my Muldrotha land deck Muldropping the Lands
