@Conaxi4783 - Hmm.. i didn't remember Revel in Riches .. although, it's not as reliable, as i would like.. but, i'm going to include it in the maybeboard.. might do a couple of playtests with it.. with Smothering Tithe , i had it in a previous iteration of this deck, but i chose to cut it because my playgroup has a couple of house rules, that puts a bounty on certain cards that we feel are annoying to play against.. Smothering Tithe , Rhystic Study , Sol Ring , Gaea's Cradle , Sensei's Divining Top & Lion's Eye Diamond are those cards currently.. whenever one player destroys/exiles any of those, they would get a point in our league per month.. although Sol Ring is still in my deck, it's not as eye catching to remove from the battlefield, unlike those others, so I had to cut it.. Thanks for the suggestions btw.

@hamdeadly - that could be useful, although my deck has a couple of enchantments that i would not rather destroy, and would prefer single/multiple targeted removal spells like Return to Dust .. maybe as a last resort.. but i will keep that mass removal spell in mind, if ever i would update this deck.. thanks!

@Jobiji - that's a viable strategy! let's see if i can replace one of my creatures for Vhati il-Dal .. thanks!

@hox167 - yeah, because aside from Assault Formation , i don't have a way to make them deal combat damage.. thanks for the suggestion though..

@BIBIGIV - That's interesting.. I'll see if i can fit it in the deck.. thanks!

@vileplume23 - I'm currently trying to reduce the CMC of this deck, so probably changing Diabolic Tutor with Demonic Tutor is an option for me.. Maze of Ith is very situational, and i have a lot of defensive creatures to deal with probable creatures that can kill me.. the only way i see that it can be useful is when my opponent steals Sun Titan for example and attacks me with it for a turn, then i can null the attack.. or if I'm against a voltron deck.. Council's Judgment is also situational.. I can see when i play this spell, that I can't even remove the nonland permanent that I wanted on the spot, if 2 or more opponents voted on another permanent.. politic-wise, it looks fun though..

@backdoorbonus - hmmm.. that's an interesting creature.. It can be another commander in the 99, that can recur itself to the 3rd card in the deck, but still.. It can also replace Zetalpa in the Tainted Strike + Zetalpa, Primal Dawn combo as a possible redundancy since it has double strike too.. thanks for the suggestion!

@Cloud777 - Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper might be included once I update this deck soon.. I'm not sure about Dragonlord Dromoka though.. It's a bit expensive.. but thanks again for the suggestions!

@vehiclemaster - I had Exsanguinate before in this deck, but i removed it since i rarely use it even before as a finisher.. but should I feel that I rarely win due to lacking finishers, I might add it back or Torment of Hailfire or both.. thanks!

@VEILofAUTUMN - I prefer Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greaves for this particular deck, since i have spells that i need to target my creature/s. I also prefer Serra's Blessing and Brave the Sands over Cathar's Shield and Accorder's Shield , since it harder to remove enchantments than artifacts and both enchantments covers my whole board.. Slagwurm Armor though might replace my Ensouled Scimitar .. So far, when I play, I rarely use its activated ability, and Slagwurm Armor has lower cmc to put in the battlefield, which opens for more mana to cast other spells.. Thanks for the suggestions!

@jakenickel - ouch! sorry, but aside from being expensive, those card would only draw hate from all players on the table, especially Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger .. thanks for the suggestion anyway..

@lola82600 - Thanks for the suggestions.. If you can check the older version of this deck thru the updates, i had Ghostly Prison in this deck before.. I cut it because, every time I play it, it doesn't feel like it doesn't belong in a creature majority deck like mine.. I'd rather pillowfort using high toughness creatures, and making opponents think twice in attacking me.. The other 2 suggestions can be useful though, but it feels less effective if i replace other creatures in the deck already..

@ZXddgsw12 - I think, although this deck is creature-based deck, it doesn't benefit as much as it would a token deck.. plus I can't replace any of the cards for it, I might include Primal Rage rather than that.. but thanks anyway for the suggestions!

@mylene800 - i get what you're saying, and I do, sometimes.. my problem is, i currently don't have in mind what card to replace 1-2 lands with.. but thanks for noticing, I'll just keep on playing this deck until i feel that a couple of cards can be replaced with lands. Thanks!

@megantrongriffin13 - hmm.. that's interesting.. it does have a more significant effect on mana fixing than gaining that 1 life.. but based on the number of color percentage, i might only include Golgari Guildgate and Selesnya Guildgate .. Thanks for the advice!

@PoleJumpAway - that's a good point, but i have more than enough ramp cards to compensate for it.. It should be fine, but i'll keep my eye out if the lands is too little as i playtest this deck more.. thanks!

@XOXOmagic - I don't know about Butcher of Malakir , it has higher cmc than i would have liked.. But the Vindictive Vampire is possible to be included.. It's a slightly less efficient Blood Artist .. so, Thanks for the input!

@Afromancer55 - aside from Toxic Deluge and Damnation , most mass removals for golgari has high cmc! Although this deck currently has a lot of ramp, so it might not be as bad as I'm thinking.. I'll consider those options, thanks!

@Quicksilver - My only fear is that, it can be stolen and used against me with cards like Expropriate .. I may have to plan better when casting my commander, instead of including Platinum Emperion .. but we'll see.. Thanks for the suggestion, though..
