It's a silly deck. The idea is to kill Kokusho, the Evening Star and revive to do it all over again.
Some obnoxious combos include:
- Sacrifice Kokusho to Phyrexian Altar for 1 Black Mana and gain the 5+ life from Kokusho, send him to your graveyard.
- Use the 1 Black Mana to activate Haunted Crossroads and put Kokusho on top of your library.
- Activate Bolas's Citadel and spend 6 life to put Kokusho back into play.
- Go to step 1.
- You'll need over 50 life
- Send your beam of 50 damage to someone from Aetherflux Reservoir
- Gain the life back from Exquisite Blood
- Go to step 2.
- This is cheap and everyone knows it.
- Have both out.
- Do damage.

If your going to play Eerie Ultimatum play more self mill, this will also have better synergy with the commander
You don't draw enough cards either - Bonders' Enclave - Tatyova, Benthic Druid - any of the modern horizons cycling lands - Splendid Reclamation (sortof) - Mystic Remora - Rhystic Study - Omen of the Sea - Brainstorm - Nissa, Vital Force - Elemental Bond

Hey Cal! I love the list, and think there could be some serious value in the big-draw discard engine lists.
So far I see Bag of Holding, Shadow of the Grave, Ad Nauseam, Bolas's Citadel, Necropotence, etc. are very powerful, but some cards seem off. You only have 9 total creatures including Tinybones, so Mausoleum Secrets feels iffy, and Culling the Weak might be too.
Love the list, absolutely powerful, wanna brainstorm over it sometime?

"Oh, your going to dig through your entire deck by paying life because you think you can combo off and win? Cool, take exorbitant amounts of damage at instant speed because you got greedy with your life total. Life is an almost limitless resource in EDH.

Hey rangab7, +1
I'm not seeing much good-stuffs... and it really looks like you're trying to make aristocrats: I see more tokens and sac-outlets than control.
I made a Turn 1 Hogaak deck with a very similar playstyle (play creatures, sac creatures, rush my commander, etc).
Also check out my mono-black Belzenrok deck.
It looks like you have enough draw, but inconsistent value-engines... like why Endless Cockroaches? Seems like you need more fodder like Gravecrawler or Oathsworn Vampire. I know it combos with Endrek, but your focus should be on Torgaar.
And then most of your big plays come after your engines are online, so often you'll be stuck with lots of cards you can't cast all at once that don't really trade well with your opponents' cards.
I would cut as many 4+ drops as you can (anything that doesn't draw 4+ cards or swing the game is slowing you down) and play a lot more spot removal. Then you'll be in a great spot to disrupt your opponents while gaining value until you're ready to end with a full board of tokens, 1-3 drops, and Blood Artist, etc.

Bolas's Citadel... buy it while it's cheap!

I've been playing various 5 color lands decks for years now and love this deck in particular. I love how solid the mana base feels even without the usual command tower/mana confluence. I've made some small changes after playing a few games so if you wanted feedback, here you go:
Reliquary Tower feels weak given that discarded lands are easy to get back and a lot of your card advantage comes from exiling cards with golos. I'm not sure how you're drawing enough cards to make it worth it, unless you're scapeshifting with Tatyova out. Is it a meta choice to counter Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur?
Here are some other cards I'm considering in this list: Krosan Verge, Witch's Cottage, Burgeoning, Heroic Intervention, Rings of Brighthearth, Last Stand, Bolas's Citadel, Mythos of Illuna, and maybe one more big piece of recursion and one extra turn spell, probably, Muldrotha, the Gravetide, and Nexus of Fate

Eternity Vessel? Play it, save your (likely) high life total and 1. If anyone tries to aggro you, good luck trying to deal with resets, plus 2. You can use Ad Nauseam/Bolas's Citadel/Necropotence type effects to spike yourself down, play a land, gain 30 life or so, and bam, you're back to normal and gained life for your commander cost (if needed). Not to mention 3. If you use your commanders activated ability, you can just get that life back every landfall.
