: Flip a coin. If you win the flip, destroy all nonland permanents.

There's only one colorless card that is present in all 19 decks of mine, and it's not Sol Ring... it's Boompile .
As for colored spells, Enlightened Tutor is in all my white decks, Cyclonic Rift is in all my blue decks, Decree of Pain and Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are in all my black decks, Stranglehold and Sunbird's Invocation are in all my red decks, and Song of the Dryads is in all my green decks.
As for cards that aaaalmost made it, but was missing in one deck that could play it (but were in at least 3 decks), there were quite a few: Maze of Ith , Myriad Landscape , Strip Mine , Tolaria West , Gamble , Aven Mindcensor , Smothering Tithe , Weathered Wayfarer , Beast Within , Carpet of Flowers , Compost (currently being tested), and Sylvan Library .

You're playing enforcer: You need good Enforcer Cards. I'm not sure how often you're using your commander's ability (there seems to be a synergy in Dingus Egg ) which makes me super happy.
Here's some that come to mind (that aren't Cyclonic Rift-priced): Chandra's Ignition Blasphemous Act Slaughter the Strong , Tragic Arrogance and Boompile . The last one I've seen used to great effect similar to Oblivion Stone without having to hold up them mana or Nevinyrral's Disk / Slows the board down (or makes you the enemy, but you're playing Jokulhaups--you're not being nice).
Get rid of the Myr mana generators and put in Talismans ( Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Creativity , and, if you want to spend a little, Talisman of Progress ). I say this because you're gonna kill creatures a lot with your sweepers. Talismans also have the added benefit of being 2-colored fixing and no summoning sickness. Solemn Simulacrum and Burnished Hart Should replace your other dorks (better value, don't care about sweeps.)
Now, What do Overpowered decks like to do: 1) Abuse triggers: Hushwing Gryff , and Torpor Orb are amazing because you have no ETB triggers on your creatures. 2) Abuse Specific Cards: This is a two parter. First, you can get rid of/hamper combo cards you know of with things like Extract or $ Meddling Mage or Pithing Needle / Sorcerous Spyglass -type effects. OR, you could go after their ability to actively find their answers with Stranglehold , Aven Mindcensor , or Mindlock Orb . The latter choice murders people with search lands... but your deck already does that in spades (Make it hurt worse with Thalia, Heretic Cathar ) 3) Use Crazy Manabases: Ruination , Price of Progress , Blood Moon , Magus of the Moon . Hates yourself pretty good, too, but that's what you wanted? Impending Disaster is a fun play 4) Graveyards: If you can't afford Rest in Peace , The next best things are Grafdigger's Cage and Silent Gravestone are the best IMO.
FINALLY; You need more draw. Budget Wheel of Fortune , Wheel of Fate is good, Windfall is an Auto-include. Mystic Remora is a gamble, but not bad. What I think would be great in this deck is Zedruu the Greathearted . Give away your things that hurt everyone, because It (usually) doesn't matter who controls them. Coercive Portal is also nice in a big game like you're gonna play. Get some voting going!... That was an aside.. and kinda draw, kinda gross.
I hope that helps. If you know some of these folks commanders, I can suggest further Shenanigans

Chainer's game plan should be something like... Ramp > Control > Reanimate.
Focus on filling and stealing from your opponents' graveyards and protecting Chainer.
Stax: Honestly, I would avoid hard stax. It encourages your opponents to hate you and escalate their power-level.
What this deck really needs is ramp: 38-40 lands and 12-16 cards like Bubbling Muck , Charcoal Diamond , Heartless Summoning , Burnished Hart , Coalition Relic , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Magus of the Coffers , Gauntlet of Power , Nirkana Revenant , etc. Also Phyrexian Tower .
...If you want to lean into stax... here's a list for evil people :)

Hey, I like the changes! Perhaps I feel a bit vindicated that you're coming around to some of my conclusions. I'm also assuming from these changes that the people you play with have gotten a bit more cutthroat. Marchesa unfortunately has a natural ceiling and a hard time keeping up with the arms race without big wads of cash; the cardpool just isn't kind to her. Still, I'm liking this build a lot. Have you checked out any WAR or Horizons pieces? I like Fblthp a lot and Massacre Girl, Bontu, and Spark Double could all be worth trying as well. I like the move to Engineered Explosives but if you're still having enchantment troubles you should try things like Boompile , Oblivion Stone , Perilous Vault , and Apocalypse . They're expensive and tricky but game-winning power plays when everything's going right and can also actually bail you out in a game when you're behind, which very few Grixis cards do in a creature-based EDH deck like this.

Hellooooooo! I play Seton as a commander too! I like your deck list.
I’ll see if I can help you out. Feel free to give me feedback on mine as well (I feel like it still needs to be refined a bit). My version.
As far as boardwipes go I’m running All Is Dust , Setessan Tactics by itself or with Natural Affinity to destroy some lands as you aspire to do. Green Kamahl or Jolrael, Empress of Beasts help in this regard as well—and I see you are already running Kamahl. There’s also Oblivion Stone or a really janky option with Boompile . I’m also running Cyclone since mana is usually not a problem and this deals damage to each player as well which I like. And then there’s Back to Nature , Bane of Progress , Seeds of Innocence and Rampage of the Clans for artifact and enchantment wipes.
I just put a Paradox Engine in and I cant wait to see how it works.
Obviously no need to accept all of my suggestions but definitely stuff for you to think about. I personally need a Gilt-Leaf Archdruid for my deck still.

Love the deck idea!!
Is there any reason not to run all the man-lands (so you can block 1/1s) as well as utility cards such as Massacre and Shriekmaw (which are in your Maybeboard) as well as Contagion , Nemesis Trap , Outbreak , Ravenous Trap , Price of Fame , Damnation , Bane of the Living , Haunted Cadaver , or Boompile ?

so seems like a fun deck but I think you should add more rng coin flipping I like the demon imp and devil subtheme but krark's other thumb actually doesn't seem to have a trigger in the deck but here are some cards that flip coins in those colors Aleatory Boompile Chance Encounter Chaotic Goo Chaotic Strike Creepy Doll Crooked Scales Desperate Gambit Fiery Gambit Fighting Chance Game of Chaos Goblin Archaeologist Goblin Bomb Goblin Kaboomist Karplusan Minotaur Mana Clash Planar Chaos Puppet's Verdict Risky Move those are the ones i found and i think you should run at least some of them
