So after play-testing a bit, I feel like Liliana of the Dark Realms synergizes really well with the deck. She's relatively cheap to cast, and allows consistent mana generation every turn thanks to her +1. By turn 6 or 7, I can pop her emblem, in tandem with the number of Swamps she lets me search for, which isn't even accounting for whether or not I drew into an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, in order to generate ridiculous amounts of Black mana. This let's me pop off cards like Griselbrand, or pay for the colorless costs of Avacyn, Angel of Hope relatively reliably, and without the need for Heartless Summoning.

Any recommendations to add Call of the Gatewatch or Dark Petition to quickly search Liliana of the Dark Realms or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth? I've drawn into them often enough without, but I'd chalk that up to luck, more than anything else.

With so many high-cost cards being run, I feel like having a few 1-2 cost creatures would be more beneficial for stalling than leaving myself wide open for multiple turns, or praying I draw into a Wall of Omens or Wall of Shards. Thoughts?

Hey ClockworkSwordfish thanks for the input! I'll be honest, I used to run a couple Alms Beast in the deck, but removed them since they were usually immediately dealt with. Sideboarding into them could be a good idea though. Thanks for the Wall of Shards idea, I didn't know that one existed! I used to have Condemn in the sideboard, I believe I replaced the copies with Blessed Alliance. Devour Flesh, while the lifegain is relevant, would be competing with Oath of Liliana which also has synergies with Enlightened Tutor and the planeswalkers in the deck. Also, I like the art way more. As for your criticisms, thank you. However, I have an alternate win-con with the guildmage, and my defensive presence is stronger than you think. Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate, Oath of Liliana, Dash Hopes, Benevolent Offering, and Swords to Plowshares all interact with my opponent while trying to keep me more alive than they are. While, I am near-creatureless, the removal/planeswalker package tends to help out in that department. I took a look at your version and it's very cool (get that False Cure out of the maybeboard though!!!).

Tainted Remedy wins are cool, but your deck has very little defensive presence - I feel like you could easily be locked down or bowled over before you can drain your opponent out! Wall of Shards and Alms Beast can be a great way to deter attackers, and they also become win conditions after the Remedy's out. Asides from that, Condemn and Devour Flesh are also solid removal that gain upsides when you have your key card.

You might be able to get some inspiration from my own take on the idea: Malpractice.
