Probably because the site only checks for banned cards? Also, brainfart from me; added Shatter Bros as a replacement filler commander.

Why wouldn't the Hordechief's ability be availabe on other people's turns? It doesn't have the usual "Activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery." clause, and one of its errata says

"In a multiplayer game, if more than one player activates Brutal Hordechiefs activated ability on the same turn, the controller of the last ability to resolve will choose how any creatures controlled by players who didnt resolve this ability will block."

I don't see how the above would be relevant if the ability couldn't be used at Instant-speed

Now, even if I'm right here it's debatable whether it's good enough since as you pointed out it doesn't provide actual evasion, only "pseudo-evasion" that requires one or more (expendable) attacking creatures to tie up blockers so that others can come trough

Oh and I'm glad I could point out War Cadence to you; have you yet you try out Brutal Hordechief as well?

Its active ability is pretty expensive but has similar applications as Cadence by forcing the defending player to focus all their blockers on an inconsequential attacker, letting the rest of them trough. In addition, it can be used as a sort of in-combat removal by e.g. forcing an opponent's Platinum Angel to block a Snake token or even during other people's fights by using the defending player's creatures to take out a threatening attacker even though it would be disadvantageous for both sides (although the latter might be politically counterproductive by encouraging people to not attack each other and/or only attack you).

Its attacking trigger can't be abused too hard by the deck right now (especially with Master of Cruelties; too bad the trigger isn't delayed until after combat eh?), but you do have decent synergy in the tokens from Marchessa & Kazuul, plus the entire creature board when Insurrection is wished for.

While we're on the topic of card prices, I assume that's the reason you've got Cruel Tutor over Imperial Seal? (400+ bucks for an inferior Vampiric Tutor? Jeez.)

(Also I guess you've intentionally rejected Grim Tutor & Diabolic Tutor for their extra cost and Diabolic Intent because the deck's only expendable creatures are Ophiomancer tokens.)

Probably too unreliable and/or potentially chaotic (if hilariously so), but have you looked into Permeating Mass?

(Also Spawnwrithe but it feel too inferior in reliability compared to both Assemble the Legion & Hero of Bladehold.)

Seeing as they also synergize with e.g. Vial Smasher, how about Sygg, River Cutthroat and/or Bloodchief Ascension? Dunno if they'll draw too much hate.

Has War Cadence been considered? A sort of reverse Ghostly Prison that can be used with other people's attacking creatures seems up this deck's alley as a swarm complement to Key to the City, with the downside that's it's overall more expensive and less versatile (also maybe more aggravating but I'm not sure); I dunno if there's room for it.

Anyway, damn cool deck you got here, keep it up
