Cut Vow of Malice for Read the Bones - If your opponents are smart, they will hold up removal for your commander. When you try to enchant it, they will remove it in response resulting in a 2 for 1. Read the bones allows you more gas to ensure that even though the table will be hitting you, you can hit back.

Cut Shade's Form for No Mercy - Same issue with above and if you use it on your commander, you won't get it back unless you let your commander go to GY because it isn't technically "dying. People will try to kill you and mo mercy is a deters them

Cut Ward of Bones for Sensei's Divining Top - I used to love ward of bones, but I don't see how you abuse it. Even if Skittles is your only creature, they can still play one creature. It's 6 CMC and doesn't exactly stop your opponents, if anything it just paints an even bigger target on your back. Top will allow you to filter into what you need. Even better with shuffle effect like tutoring, fetches, etc...

Well, If you switch back to Xantcha: then my licid statement still holds true. + my other suggestions. + Gift of Doom will be great. + Visions of Brutality + Vow of Malice + Vow of Lightning . Soul Conduit has been fun in my Xantcha deck. Do I think these are major game winners? Not really, but they are high levels of political & unusual decision forcings. And on the plus side with Xantcha, you don't have to load a deck with card draw for the sake of draw, since you should plan on activating the commander for this reason. Scheming Symmetry seems like a must-add for political mayhem. Tutors can actually be fun in a deck that doesn't contain tempting "win now/combo" cards.

hey Strangelove, thanks for the suggestions a ton

yeah i generally go enchant heavy, but especially in this deck because they're just generally harder to shoot down than creatures

Endless Whispers and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent are both amazing. i don't know how i missed over them. definitely both going in when i get a chance to tweak the deck a bit. probably Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis if i can find a little room, too.

i like Wild Research in a zedruu shell where i can kinda gimp it a little more with big mana and graveyard shenanigans

i should probably add in Pir's Whim , not sure why i wasn't already running it. i have a copy and generally use it in my sillier decks.

sadly Cruel Entertainment isn't on mtgo

you're absolutely right about Vow of Malice , and i should swap it with Vow of Flight

This one is the correct list of questions... (tappedout changed my form after the posting T_T) what do you think about the new land Hall of Heliod's Generosity ? if i could use fetchs, duals and so on they will be better for the deck? Ghostly Prison , Propaganda and Norn's Annex instead of Vow of Malice and Assault Suit ? your opinion on Windborn Muse and Silent Arbiter ?

Hmm when I think of politics I usually just think of insurance that those politics don't backfire, Vow of Duty and Vow of Malice buff opponent's creatures, but keep them from attacking you, Mystic Barrier essentially keeps 2 opponents from attacking you while also doing the same for each of them, you can then use politics to save one opponent from another's large board for favors

Now I do admit I don't know why you have Paradox Engine, the value of your tap effects are not too strong and the engine is too well known that you could probably cast an Armageddon instead and draw about the same heat.

One last suggestion would be to think about Angelic Renewal, it's an awfully neat save a guy enchantment that works really well with Sun Titan and it was just reprinted making it extra easy to find, might even find it foil. (I did say last suggestion, but ran into Helm of Possession when reviewing the comment, what better political way to kill a creature than to simply steal it at instant speed)
