"Kill a creature, destroy the present.
Kill the land, destroy the future."

This is the first commander I ever built when I started playing EDH. It's built to be played politically and help speed up some of our longer games. i play it with Kaervek the Merciless most of the time but Crosis, the Purger, Nekusar, the Mindrazer are available as alternate commanders seeing as the deck uses a voltron and chaos shell.

I think Arcane Lighthouse would be a must here, and possibly Mogg Infestation, both as ways around shroud ect.

Vampiric Link is fun on other people's creatures and while not very political, would really kick in hard on your boss or (my favorite) Heartless Hidetsugu.

carpecanum I agree, Arcane Lighthouse deserves a spot in the deck. Mogg Infestation is an interesting one person sweeper that I haven't seen before, being so creature light in my own deck I try to wheel and deal my way to avoid being attacked, generally using everyone else's spell casts as fuel I can destroy problems on the battlefield with Kaervek the Merciless. Vampiric Link is nice but being an aura card I just don't know if I could find a good spot for it to call home, they're too easily lost and not recoverable unless you're playing white and I already have a bunch of ways to gain life. Thanks for the comment!

Cool deck, kaerveck is awesome!
You could consider Glistening Oil over Phyresis.
Price of Glory over Citadel of Pain as it provides a harsher penalty to those pesky blue mages who want to counter spells.
finally i've never played Price of Knowledge but it seems very slow. another 7drop: resolving Repay in Kind at the right time, with kaerveck on the field, can mean game.
also check out Hanweir Battlements over Grixis Panorama. if you happen to have exquisite blood out, and then you cast heartless hidetsugu and give him haste - then get ready to gain a ton of life. haste can be crucial.
