I... uh...

What's your plan? There's a lot going on here, and I have no idea what your goal is.

Are you trying to Combo out with Niv-Mizzet and Curiosity? Then you need more tutors and more draw-spells. (You also need tutors that are better than Rhystic Tutor - that card is terrible, and will pretty much never work in a commander game)

I see seven Walkers and several Oaths. Do you want this to be superfriends? If so, you need more walkers and more oaths. And a lot more board control (e.g., Life's Finale, Phyrexian Rebirth, Final Judgment, etc.)

I see a LOT of spot-removal, but most of it is really under-powered Angelic Edict, Erase, Unsubstantiate. What's the goal there?

Some cards just don't make any sense. Wall of Swords? This makes sense in a wall-tribal deck, but that doesn't seem to be your plan. Kulrath Knight makes sense in a counters deck, but that also doesn't seem to be your plan.

Even the mana-base is kind of.... scattered. You've got a couple signets and a talisman. In 5-color, you need to be focusing on mana-rocks that do 5-color fixing: Chromatic Lantern, Coalition Relic, even Manalith are excellent 3-drops. For 2-drops, look at Coldsteel Heart, Fellwar Stone, Star Compass. If you want Cryptolith Rite to do work for you, you need a lot more cheap, expendable creatures. Or some token-generation. Better to cut it entirely than to try to redesign the creature-base around it.

The rest just looks like a fairly random amalgamation of good-ish cards with no coherent end-goal or strategy. Figure out what you want the deck to do - how do you want it to interact with the board? How do you want it to win? Then work towards that goal.

I'm gonna be blunt. Seems like you are trying to encorporate a shit ton of strategies into just 60 cards or so. I would focus on the Cinderhorn's ability and stick with that. Add in some Darksteel Myr to have the benefit of attacking without worrying about damage triggers. Then add in 4x Pacifism 4x Sphere of Safety and one more Ghostly Prison. Maybe then some walls that can kill your opponent's attacking creatures, suck as Wall of Swords and/or Wall of Fire. Then just sit back, add maybe a bit of cheap lifegain or Curse of the Pierced Heart, and piss off your opponent. Basically locking them out of combat and letting them die slowly while protecting your own creatures. +1, hope this helps!

JohnnyBoyG, I had Indestructibility on here, but it has since been replaced (I love the art with the text, it's great). Redirect has always been in the back of my mind, but not sure about it.

But Wall of Swords, now THAT is a funny one. Thanks!
