Void Maw Discussion

UPDATE: I need 23 cards cut for the strict amount of 100. However, this time around, there will be new rules exclusive to this deck for chopping:
1: Key pieces will not be cut regardless of Binary Speech or any kind of Tongue, verbal, physical, data, or some fourth way that doesn't exist. The Key pieces are:
- Runic Repetition
- Pull from Eternity
- Squee, the Immortal, Misthollow Griffin, Eternal Scourge, & Food Chain
- Necropotence & Bag of Holding
- Torrent Elemental
- Void Maw
- Any card w/ Flashback that is especially great here.
2: I actually need some ideas for an Exile Based Doomsday Package; & all while keeping this balanced.
3: I actually wanted to revise the Landbase; Not for the 10/10/10 method, or the one I already presently have here, but from a way that I actually have not used at least twice now for Five Color.
4: I dunno if it'll work, but how does Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon work? Or is there a combo that fits this deck's purpose moreso; Exiling powerful cards just to bring them back through means of Exile Retrieval.
5: Not all the Flashback cards are good, I can acknowledge this for sure. So what aren't pulling their weight?
And that's it, actually. I'll add a Dragon, & a Maw after this post. I just need a combo for Worldgorger Dragon that complements this deck's themes, & the Doomsday Package centering on pure exile. Now I have one more job to do...

@bushido_man96: Don't get me wrong, the card kicks butt in a pinch. Although losing one life may not be so bad, basically having an Exiling Engine for spells means so few cards exist for this. But we've a problem w/ this as well; Riftsweeper is the only card in Simic's colors to use Exile Manipulation. Pull from Eternity is , Torrent Elemental wouldn't work as it only affects itself, Mirror of Fate is even worse as it's a worse Doomsday for 7 Exiled cards; but the rest of the library dies beyond death; Runic Repetition only works on Flashback spells, & Misthollow Griffin? Not even what this deck wants. In such a case, this deck would need Void Maw; but this isn't Sultai ; this is Simic.
Sorry for not limiting my post to 180 Unicode characters, but I was trying to do a supplemental explanation about this whole thing. Basically, all we have is Riftsweeper, but there are not enough stuff that can utilize exile retrieval as a target for that damned Elf Shaman. UNLESS... Unless I cut Rashmi for her, & find more effects that Exile themselves after use. THEN we can start cutting the quarks, & leptons; the smallest form of matter in our ethereal everything.
Apology No. 2 for going even further than before. Yeah, "Tell Obi-Wan: "I failed."" -Yoda after losing a fight with Darth Sidious
I'll contemplate Force of Will for now, until then, though, you literally made me want to do a deck focusing on Exile Retrieval; W/O Atraxa in the first place. Yep an actual Partners Commander Deck; but which two to use, I ponder...

As far as the black mana situation, Black Market seems the immediate thought, but if not then Crypt Ghast is another option. Curse of Opulence works to a lesser degree, and allows you to draw the fire away a little.
Hope these help!

Too bad Void Maw doesn't quite synergise with our commander. It was one of the first favorite cards I played with.
But! Devouring Strossus is another card I loved and should work here.

Ok! Combining some stuff I've noticed from playing the deck, and some analysis regarding average CMC and Mana Curve and whatnot, this is my edit list that I'll be considering:
Cards to add:
- Isolated Chapel
- Dragonskull Summit
- Swords to Plowshares
- Anguished Unmaking
- Clifftop Retreat
- Utter End
- Archfiend of Depravity
- Withered Wretch
- Void Maw
- Suffer the Past
- Umbral Mantle
- Syphon Mind
Cards to remove:
- Rise of the Dark Realms
- Worst Fears
- Assault Suit
- Witchbane Orb
- ... what else!? :P
Any suggestions on these edits and the deck in general would be great! :)

@ amh62993 - This deck is horrific!
...bad puns aside, allow me to suggest a few things for your consideration.
Consuming Aberration is a card I think has a place in any Dimir build. Many think it is only relevant in mill decks, but really this beast just minds its own business. Sure, you won't win the game with this as your only mill engine. But you will definitely put your opponents at a disadvantage while you get a huge beater.
The following creatures are part of the Consuming Aberration Fan Club: Sewer Nemesis is the president; Nemesis of Reason is the treasurer; Nighthowler hypes up the group; Guiltfeeder is the jerk that makes fun of people outside the club; Geralf's Mindcrusher is the guy that only comes like twice, never to be seen again.
Phyrexian Revoker is wonderful commander hate (or any creature with an activated ability too good to let happen)
Mindleech Mass is expensive to put down, but that ability...
Void Maw can be a finisher late-game.
Greater Harvester (which honestly feels more like a Demon than a Horror)
It That Rides as One (starts as a human, becomes a horror)
And, of course, Phyrexian Librarian
Good luck, and happy deck-teching!

I'm implying that Void Maw doesn't make marchesa's ability go away because you still get the card back. I'm not positive of this, but I'm pretty sure marchesa's ability doesn't care where the card goes. Sorry for being an asshole in the previous comment :/
