Creature — Dragon Horror
At the beginning of your end step, exile the top card of each opponent's library. You may play those cards for as long as they remain exiled. If you cast a spell this way, you may spend mana as though it were mana of any colour to cast it.
Whenever a nonland permanent an opponent owns enters the battlefield under your control, they lose life equal to its converted mana cost/mana value.

Looks good! Although I would recommend to try to reduce the CMC a bit an add more lands instead. Mindleech Mass seems too expensive for what it could provide during the late game and still needs the damage enabler. Same goes for Brainstealer Dragon, Arvinox, the Mind Flail or Elder Brain it's very unlikely to ever play these cards during a match with this small manabase AND get 'em alive before any trigger occurs. I would cut out almost everything with a CMC of 6 to gain more speed and focus more on your commanders ability. Just my 2 cents

Callicon, thanks for taking a look through the deck! I'm intentionally not running Brainstealer Dragon, since it doesn't fit as thematically with the general Lovecraft/cosmic horror theme of the deck. I had actually taken it out to slot in Mind Flayer, the Shadow, as they have similar effects, but I like Mind Flayer, the Shadow better for flavor/thematic wins

Hey, I really like the deck list you've got here. I did, however, notice that you aren't running Brainstealer Dragon which i think would be really good in this deck. I might even suggest taking out Mind Flayer, the Shadow or Emrakul, the Promised End for it, as in my opinion the dragon is a more efficient option for the same mana cost as Mind Flayer, and is more synergistic than Emrakul.

Magmatic Force is great if you don't care about pips (since you are either cheatyfacing or polymorphing)
Brainstealer Dragon if you don't need it to be damage specifically.

Jator Nope the deck is winding down in the sense that there's already so many good dragon cards to where any replacements would just have to be strictly better versions of current cards which I doubt will be happening that often. I replaced Brainstealer Dragon with Ancient Copper Dragon but if there's a set that comes out that has a lot of dragons for consideration/upgrades, there will be an update.

Aighty. That's fair. I don't have a play group so I just build decks online and don't really have experience with people hating a deck. Last two suggestions but one could get hate.
Memory Lapse I think it really fits since you can possibly mill it your turn and get it before your opponent can draw it again. This is more stealing tho so yea.
Brainstealer Dragon It's 7 mana and you might have a hard cap at 6. It's flying tho which helps get it's damage thru plus with commander's ability it'll second effect will activate so could just go for extra damage.
Anyways, again great deck and thank you for your thoughts.

As someone who has played Chainer for close to a decade, I have some suggestions I would like to offer. (though everyone's decks run differently!)
In those spots:
(Or all the expensive artifacts like Grim Monolith or what have you)
In place of:
1x Cast Down--> Lethal Scheme: This card is amazing in any reanimator list
1x Culling the Weak--> Phyrexian Altar: you need more sac outlets with some staying power
1x Dismember--> Soul Transfer: seems janky, but versatile
1x Doom Blade--> Baleful Mastery: you can hit more with it.
1x Go for the Throat--> Infernal Grasp
1x Sacrifice--> Ashnod's Altar: need more sac outlets with staying power
1x Terror--> Meteor Golem: This guy helps so much with things Black cannot remove
1x Victim of Night--> Karn Liberated: This guy helps so much with things Black cannot remove
Suggested Drops, see next list for suggested replacements
Blood Pet--> sort of an eh card, I might think of something with more oomph
Skirge Familiar: I get the reason it is in here, but there are better cards.
Black Market: It's nice, but can be too slow.
Liliana of the Dark Realms: I just have never been a big fan, she feels too lackluster.
Final Parting: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough
Sidisi, Undead Vizier: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough
Rune-Scarred Demon: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough, there also some stronger creatures to fit in the spot.
Archon of Cruelty: expensive mana wise but an all star.
Kokusho, the Evening Star: has been in my deck from the beginning and has flat out won me games.
Brainstealer Dragon: seems janky, but I added to just try it and it has been amazing.
Black Market Connections: You need more draw (also helps with ramp)
Phyrexian Arena: You need more draw
Bolas's Citadel: an amazing card. Wins games all the time.
Disciple of Bolas: card draw and life gain
Fell Stinger: card draw
Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed: Great for recursion
Reanimate, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Living Death. and Animate Dead: it is good to have other means of reanimation if Chainer keeps getting removed (I also suggest sac outlets to help keep your creatures from getting exiled when they spot remove Chainer)
Hope this helps! Here is my list to maybe show you how I run the list: The True Meaning of Death and Taxes
