This spell costs less to cast for each creature on the battlefield.
Blasphemous Act deals 13 damage to each creature.
5 days ago
I finally finished my "vacation" (courtesy of our Dear Leader) in the Southern Booger Mines and was able to review the last few sets.
Say hello to our newest friends*!
Gimli, Counter of Kills: Decent boardwipe dissuasion and adds a nice layer of extra damage to everything we're doing anyway.
Fall of Cair Andros: Yes they are dirty Orcians, but with the amount of noncombat damage dealt by this desk the Army should have a strong board presence. Ties into Toralf, God of Fury Flip, the damage doublers/triplers, Skirk Fire Marshal, and Blasphemous Act very well.
There and Back Again: Has all the elements requested in Ib's latest agenda.
Maskwood Nexus: While not game-changing on it's own when it comes out, I think the fun factor of what it enables is worth testing out.
Mines of Moria: Not sure if this makes the cut, but it's easy enough to swap a land for a land for testing.
Say goodbye to these dishonorable discharges!:
(Your mother's baby name for you! - Ib Halfheart)
Professional Face-Breaker: Can't say I ever got the use the first ability due to how often my damage was non-combat, and is too spendy for a little bit of quasi-draw.
Rose Room Treasurer: Looks decent at face value, but didn't hold its weight in actual play.
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser: Not comfortable with this removal, so will be the first one that goes back in if any additions are sub par.
Rain of Riches: I think in a deck built to cascade better this would make a bigger impact, but all it really got me is two treasures for . Oof.
Big Score: Another hard decision, and likely to come back after testing. Either that or an actual draw engine of some sort?
Riveteers Overlook: My landbase has been pretty refined for a long time, so this was literally only used for the pretty inconsequential 1 life. Easy cut.
That's it for now. Let me know what you think!

Firstly a +1, as it is always good to have more added to the hive.
So had a quick look at your list and seems legit. Certainly seems like it is mostly based around a go wide synergy. Going on that, I would like to offer a bit of advice. Firstly, I think Merciless Eviction can be a really dead card. I would look to be using spot removal for exile such as Swords to Plowshares, and Path to Exile. I would be using modal boardwipes which you can rebuild from using Sliver Gravemother, and Merciless Eviction is a kinda non-bo. Maybe something like Austere Command would be better, and Toxic Deluge can still deal with those indestructable things.
I am also not a massive fan of Coat of Arms. Dont get me wrong, its a classic, but EVERYONE benefits from it. Something like a Shared Animosity may be better for you as you have so much evasion that toughness is less of a concern. I know its pricey, but maybe a Finale of Devastation could go search for your Sliver Legion and get to swinging with those big Slivery baddies. Can also use things like Natural Selection. Would also say that given the key words you can get just from your Slivers, Akroma's Memorial is a little redundant.
If I can think of anything else I will drop some more on here, but hope it helps. If you would like to come and drop by my hive, you will be always welcome to come have a look around and leave me a message letting me know what you think :)

Blasphemous Act as cheap Massremoval. Mostly you pay for 13 dmg to all creatures.

I'll let that suggestion go, then. Maybe it's just my style, but I don't like that sort of linearity without redundancy, and the backup plan seems to be getting lucky with Pyromancy or spending time building up to a useful Blasphemous Act. So, personally, if I was modifying this deck, I would give it a trial run, at least. Probably just me.

Board wide damage effects seem pretty good with your Commander, Pestilence, Pyrohemia, Chain Reaction and Blasphemous Act all jump out as good enough cards. Mandate of Abaddon is probably well beyond good if Kresh is at all beefy, he'll suddenly be even bigger on an empty board if all goes well. As long as your Commander has at least 4 toughness Ezuri's Predation would be hilarious, even if a bunch of 4/4s bite the bullet your Commander just gets bigger.
Rite of the Raging Storm seems almost unholy with your Commander, I normally love this card but here you are going to be farming 5 power creatures over and over, and they're never attacking you.
If your Commander is fairly big then Return of the Wildspeaker, Rishkar's Expertise, Soul's Majesty, Momentous Fall (also good if your Commander is going to die, as is Greater Good), Grothama, All-Devouring, and Mask of Griselbrand can all draw you a decent number of cards. Overwhelming Stampede and Fungal Sprouting both seem very good with your Commander.
Thunderfoot Baloth, Siege Behemoth, Kamahl, Heart of Krosa, Blossoming Bogbeast, and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma are decent sources of Trample that are stapled to a body, and they're all fairly budget. Keep an eye out incase Pathbreaker Ibex goes down in price, that's a very good effect with your Commander. Just a heads up, but if you run lots of sources of Trample for your Commander, then anything that provides Deathtouch looks a ton better, with Deathtouch you just deal 1 damage per creature and Trample over the rest. Bow of Nylea, Saryth, the Viper's Fang, and Ohran Frostfang are all very good sources afaik, there are others kicking around if you look!

- Why doesn't Fealty to the Realm doesn't just goad?
- Why doesn't Gollum, Obsessed Stalker just say "...dealt combat damage by it..."?
I get that there's some nuance to not having the above (e.g. Helm of the Host on Gollum), but it seems minute.
Thankfully no Horsemanship on Rohan cards, AFAIK.
Boromir, Gondor's Hope: feels weird flavor-wise. The sea power thing again?
The faces in Lorien Revealed look more horrified than amazed
Call of the Ring is basically a more wrath-resistant Dark Confidant in decks with a black inclusive mana value <= 1, namely: Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh (with the proper partner), Ashnod, Flesh Mechanist (skulk + 1 base power means she can often attack safely for her trigger), Frodo, Sauron's Bane (obviously). Also Valentin, Dean of the Vein Flip, I guess.
Fall of Cair Andros: Man, Blasphemous Act was already overpowered. Gogo Rem Karolus, Stalwart Slayer (+ a haste source), the Army will probably be able to finish someone off on its own while you attack someone else with the rest of your creatures.
Rising of the Day: Randomly strictly Fervor, I actually don't like this.
Long List of Ents: Cute, but the amount of hoops you need to hop trough for one extra counter per turn feels pretty anti-climatic. But hey, if your proliferate an extra chapter counter onto this (or something) and you then cast a changeling (or something), it'll get two counters! Woho...
Quickbeam: Kinda feel like he should have haste?
Horn of Gondor: Even if it's non-free to activte, Human Krenko is pretty good.
Palantir of Orthanac: I feel people are overestimating this for the purpose of self-milling. After 2-3 counters in a graveyard deck, people are just going to let you have that free Preordain
