Disciple of Deceit is one of most powerful PDH generals. Having ability to tutor about any card ("transmute" here, if being correct) is priceless in multiplayer commander, because you can adopt to any game situation. In my game group I won with this deck against normal EDH generals like Zur, Ezuri and Animar.
Making this deck I keeping principles of competitive commander, to win fast as you can. Its easy to earn, if you started with 2 combo pieces in hand and need only one more.
Fastest combo here is High Tide + Wind Zendikon + Freed from the Real +(any infinity profit card like Capsize ) can be shown at turn 4!

List of all combos you can see under spoiler below.

Early game (1-5 turn)

Mid game (6+ turns)
