Zombies + exile based removal. Kaya is even a Mono Blue Tempo regulator just on her own.

Might mix it up and use Death Baron 's abilities to get Gutterbones as my battlefield clogger and maybe eve a Bone Dragon alt finisher

Thanks for your suggestions, man.

I agree that Settle the Wreckage and Vraska's Contempt are really great options. I'll try those cards in my tests.

As for Jace, I won a lot of games with this card. But I'll try to swap it for something else and see how it goes.

Settle the Wreckage and Vraska's Contempt seem the best things to put in here.

I like the idea, but don't like the mana curve. I think that you can achieve the same with cards that are cheaper (in terms of cmc). Hired Poisoner in place of Ravenous Chupacabra also gives you a once-off kill opponent's creature, you just need to block with it. If you could equip Thief of Sanity (to steal one of your opponent's cards each turn) or Nightveil Predator (for hexproof attack) with Aether Tunnel (to make them unblockable) you will tend to dominate the field. With a bunch of creature removal, why not Dead Man's Chest to turn the power of your opponent's creatures into cards in a Virtual, second hand (cards exiled with Thief of Sanity and Dead Man's Chest can be played as if they were in your hand, but with any color mana). And finally, with game-winning creatures on the field, a bit of protection in the form of Siren Stormtamer could go a long way toward ensuring victory.

-4 Ravenous Chupacabra , +4 Hired Poisoner

-4 Mark of the Vampire , +4 Dead Man's Chest

-4 Vraska's Contempt , +4 Aether Tunnel

-4 Thought Erasure , +4 Siren Stormtamer

Try out these changes and see what you think.

I like it! Would you consider adding Vraska's Contempt to the sideboard? Also how about changing Murder into Cast Down ?

I would definitely put Vraska's Contempt there for phoenix or planeswalkers. I think it'd be better if this was Dimir coloured honestly. So many surveil and draw mechanics to keep the pace, Dimir speaks discard and has Thief of Sanity and Hostage Taker which are great cards.

The deck hits really hard, nice on that. It is very weak to flying creatures and to board wipes. You should consider splashing red or black to get some interaction with your opponents and answers. Either Cindervines , Vraska's Contempt , Collision//Colossus (couldn't get it to link sorry), Midnight Reaper , Assassin's Trophy to name a few starters. I playtested against this deck a few times and consistently had problems casting Impervious Greatwurm . Something lower curve would be nice there, and splashing can get you the reaper mentioned or Gruul Spellbreaker which both add nice bonuses to your deck. If you splash Red, Rhythm of the Wild is a great card to consider, allowing your big guys to hit right out the door instead of allowing your opponent to untap and hit them with removal spells. Overall I like where you are with this deck, but in this format, a splash adds a lot of strength. Good job.

Tony04qc I've considered Lazav, but I've found that Hero of Precinct One is a better two-drop for the curve, and wanting to play a two-drop off curve for a hypothetical gain isn't the best plan. Even worse is the fact that most red decks are running Lava Coil , UW decks have Deputy of Detention, and the black decks all have Vraska's Contempt or Cry of the Carnarium , so it's much harder than normal to find targets for Lazav's ability.
