If you want a nice lock, either Ophiomancer or Bitterblossom to pair with Contamination.

Thank you for your comments fatalzintomyum !

You made two really good suggestions ! In fact, if you look at the cards selection i made in the description, you will see that both of them (Bitterblossom & Kolaghan's Command) were main deck. This actual version is a test of Mazemind Tome.

The lack of cards draw and the high number of Prowess decks i faced make me wanna try it. As i also put in a one-of Chandra, Acolyte of Flame and have so many three drop, i decided to swap Kolaghan's Command and Rakdos Charm from side to main. This allows graveyard & artifact hate game one, and decrease the mana-curve. I also put Demigod of Revenge in the sideboard for matchups where i need a faster clock and/or if my Ensnaring Bridge are dead.

I can easily go back to my first version if i'm not convinced after some play-testing ;)

Concerning Smoldering Marsh, i never had to regret it. I actually run seven basics so fetching it untapped is not very difficult.

oof, Smoldering Marsh is sort of sus, why. Pretty good deck otherwise. In modern you need a very consistant pressure even in control decks, and I can see Bitterblossom in this one being cool. This is even more important without a solid way to actually draw cards.

People are going to try and remove your commander, as your deck is centered around him. As such, protecting him is key.

Imp's Mischief - Counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal/draw/extra turns, etc.... super utility

Deserted Temple - Untap coffers

Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or other utility lands

Since you are playing pox with lots of creature removal, you might want to consider Infernal Darkness or Contamination + Bitterblossom.

Feed the Swarm - Good removal

Blast Zone - Not needed but nice to have, another way to deal with artifacts/enchantments

Given you're saccing your own lands too, have you considered adding fetches and Crucible of Worlds? It could really offset Lake of the Dead

I got some ideas for cuts should you need. I HATE this commander so much, deck looks pretty good +1

I must say to the Anointed Procession. There is a Mini Combo in the Deck such as Bishop of Wings + Divine Visitation + Anointed Procession optinal an Bitterblossom. I found that Idea pretty Sweet and want to try it. But remove it is also an Option.

Thanks alot for your Card Suggetions.

Gontilordofmtg Thanks for commenting! I feel the life gain card are pretty important in this deck as Phyrexian Arena, Bitterblossom, Ancient Tomb, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Spire of Industry, and Tarnished Citadel all do damage to me or make me lose life, and having that life gain cushion is important.

As for removal, a friend of mine always says "A fun commander deck is all questions and no answers", so all of my decks tend to just be very selfish and try to get ahead as quick as possible rather than worrying about other players decks.

However, I do have two ways of removing things, Capricious Efreet and also Dominus of Fealty + World Queller let me do this fun thing where I take any permanent and then immediately sacrifice what I took with the World Queller trigger.

I've considered adding the red siege enchantment, but I typically rely on Golos and hardly cast cards from my hand, nor top of the deck.
