Solitary Confinement + Necropotence

No Mercy , Grave Pact , Privileged Position , Beacon of Immortality , Phyrexian Arena , Attrition and Worship .

Any ideas on where I should go with this? Black White Control / Enchantment / Life Gain?

You'd have to drop the Privileged Position but Queen Marchesa would be a good fit. She plays wonderfully with things like Solitary Confinement .

Pillow fort is always an option. Have a look here and see what you think: The mighty-est of pillow forts!

Lots of good stuff there killroy726.

Spreading Plague is a must buy and I'm sure Worship and Near-Death Experience could be paired up.

DrukenReaps why would I have to drop Privileged Position ?

For Queen Marchesa in EDH as a commander requires only grixis colored cards (R/U/B) whereas position is G/W.

Near death experience is combo'd in my deck with Necropotence for a wincon. I also combo spreading plague with Darkest Hour to constantly nuke all critters on board

Hybrid symbols count as both colors for purposes of color identity so Privileged Position is both and .

This is not the official site but I find this the most useful for rules reference:

With Ghave, Guru of Spores you wouldn’t need to drop anything and it offers you plenty of ways to go. Very fun and strong Commander (speaking as someone who often plays against it).

Easy Zur the Enchanter . Fetches your main combo and a good chunk of your other goodstuff. Check out the Zur EDHREC page, especially the "themes" hyperlinks to see if that floats your boat.

triproberts12 I looked through the themes and loved what I saw.

I like the curses theme, the life gain theme (which brings in vampire tribal) and the enchantments theme. There's enough overlap there that I cannot in all three without it becoming too much right?

Current creatures are protection from Black paired with Pestilence and I'm not sure if I should keep that or switch to the vampires.

Zur the Enchanter is first to come to mind due to the Solitary Confinement & Necropotence combo, but Daxos the Returned is another Commander that I personally have a lot of fun with that sticks with the W/B Enchantment theme.
