Visions of Brutality Discussion

Suggestions for your mana base:
Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).
Suggestions for draw and card advantage:
It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.
Suggestions for removal spells:
Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.

Sick idea - consider Scrapheap Scrounger and maybe some strong Enchantments because they're also 'Permanents'. A nice one to deter attacks and buy time is Visions of Brutality but I'm sure there are others that work.

Catalog9000, Darth_Savage I am the worst at remembering non-basic lands. Thanks! I am going to definitely root around and see if I can't drudge up some of those leechboys. I am liking Visions of Brutality for a control angle more than Nettling Curse, but... Curses! These are both going into the maybe board for some solid consideration regardless.
As for Thoughtpicker Witch and Inkfathom Witch, I think if I were to swap some things out, I'd use Thoughtpicker, because it's cheaper, I could actually get some use out of my Witches' Eye and I can force a sac if for some reason I can't get my Bubbling Cauldron out.
Thanks a bunch for the feedback!

I like the idea of the deck, especially the grey merchant finish. My advice would be to cut the Sinister Possessions and Visions of Brutality for harder removal, and throw in a Phyrexian Obliterator. Curving Gravecrawler to Relentless Dead to Geralf's Messenger to Phyrexian Obliterator to grey merchant is a 24-life swing, and just obliterator to merchant is 12

Kalastria Highborn tends to underperform. agree on the cuts, but would reccomend a 1 drop to replace it or Blood Artist- the mana investment means its ability rarely is relevent. I'd swap the Feast of Blood for the Rakdos Charm in the sb and add some Pithing Needle or Ratchet Bomb. not a fan of Visions of Brutality. With kalitas in Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact is strong.

I have to agree with Tainefont here, both regarding playing four of your important cards and the mediocracy of Sengir Vampire(which by the way isn't legal in Standard) and Certain Death and a bunch of other cards from the list. But...upvote from me solely for winning a leg while playtesting by killing of my Colossus Affinity deck playing first Visions of Brutality on a Metalwork Colossus, followed by a next turn Inner Struggle, doing 10 damage in the process, and with this winning the first leg! But as you say, Casual is fun, but maybe even more fun with a bit more consistant deck. A lot of good options for this kind of deck in SoI and EMN!Good luck:-)
