Traded out some situational cards for cards with more synergy and power. Thanks for all the advice. Especially PayOneLife and linksdeity.

Subterranean Hangar Volrath's Stronghold Strip Mine Thespian's Stage Urborg Tower of the Magistrate & Shizo, Death's Storehouse to give my land base more depth.

Corpse Harvester for consistency.

Lim-Dul the Necromancer Sheoldred, Whispering One Geth, Lord of the Vault & Volrath the Fallen for power and shenanigans.

Suggestions are always welcome.

Volrath's Stronghold could be a nice utility land. And adding in Volrath the Fallen is great with your reanimate and the amount of expensive creatures you have. He's one of the most liked characters in the game, going along with your 'lords and titles' theme.

Subterranean Hangar does a similar thing to bottomless vault, but allows you to put a counter on it at the end of your opponent's turn so you can threaten with open mana.

Braids, Cabal Minion is banned now, just to let you know.

Shizo, Death's storehouse will kill your creatures when you have horobi out, so be careful!

Lake of the Dead could help you have some explosive turns.

Balthor the Defiled is a cool black legend with a pretty powerful ability. He's also the same mana cost as Braids ;)

Lim-Dul the Necromancer is pretty beasty too

Thanks for the upvote.

Volrath the Fallen, Volrath's Stronghold, Subterranean Hangar will be added shortly. Balthor the Defiled & Lim-Dul the Necromancer will make the sideboard. Lake of the Dead just doesn't seem worth it, without Crucible of Worlds.

I appreciate the suggestions PayOneLife.

Yeah, I thought about that after posting Lake of the Dead. It would be more of a bomb for a single turn win but overall I reckon you're right it probably isn't worth it.

PayOneLife Also, Shizo, Death's Storehouse will kill opponents legendary creatures I target while Horobi, Death's Wail is in play. Not to mention the benefits of getting another players damage through to a mutual enemy.

Ah yeah, I hadn't thought of that. This is shaping up to be a killer deck!
