Hey, TheoryCrafter, thanks for the comment! First and foremost, I must say that, due to the pandemic, I got very little chance to hang out with my friends to play EDH with, BUT I've continued to follow releases and sets regardless. I came up with an extended update list that I wish I'll be able to share on here too as soon as possible. With this in mind, I'll go onto your comment. I tried to check your deck, but it seems to be private: let me know where to find it and I'll gladly check it out!

Regarding adding cards that give me value when my opponents discard, I tried to avoid them due to the fact that in my pod there is already a Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder wheel/discard deck, so I tried to now follow the same path. Regardless, I have thought about introducing cards like Windfall and Whispering Madness as incremental advantage, but even then, I probably won't include cards like Liliana's Caress .

Graveyard exile effects like Planar Void / Leyline of the Void really mess up my gameplan, since the deck's main wincon relies on using all possible X/X creatures like Consuming Aberration that count cards or creatures in opponent's graveyards (see this deck's description section "The Big Bois"): if graveyards are empty, those creatures won't mill at all. In order to contrast graveyard decks, such that I can mill them without helping them out, I instead included (or will include) cards like Grafdigger's Cage , Weathered Runestone and Silent Gravestone : in this way, graveyards can be full, but nobody will be able to take advantage of it, apart from me.

Evasion is a mild subtheme I will try to add, but instead of Aqueous Form , I was thinking of something more enduring like Thassa, God of the Sea or Dauthi Embrace . It's a good idea, sometimes I face decks with cards that reshuffle graveyards, so being able to knock them out in another way is a good option to have.

As for Ruin Crab and Hedron Crab , I don't really think they mill enough to be relevant during the course of the game, so I left them out. Moreover, I don't run enough fetch-like lands as of now, so I won't really get such an advantage from running those two anyways.

In the update list I mentioned at the start, Fleet Swallower will get swapped out for Maddening Cacophony : it's a good card, can be cats a turn earlier with respect to Swallower and doesn't need haste. The combos are the same as before, so that's a good funcitonal update.

As for tutors, my playgroup banned them. If I were to run some, I would run many other mana-cheaper tutors like Grim Tutor . Regarding commander rules, I have to tell you that, unfortunately, wish effects like the second choice of Mastermind's Acquisition don't work: this is due to the fact that "from outside of the game" really means "from your Sideboard", but in EDH there is no Sideboard. I know, no fun allowed, at least according to WotC.

I'll go onto update the description of this page once I'll get all the new cards I need.

Black has a bunch of creatures with Shadow you could look at. Dauthi Embrace maybe but it would only give you 2 mana at the cost of 2 mana.

Pestilence , maybe Lim-Dul's Hex . There are probably a lot of Black cards in any Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck that would work here. Shame all the "tap to cause 1 damage to each player" cards are red.

IMHO, I think you need to swap out some low-drops for evasion, you don't have a lot of bounce/recursion to re-Ninjitsu your big fatties. I'd recommend Key to the City or Dauthi Embrace. Crystal Shard if you want to lean towards more bounce.

Did you ever get round to converting this deck into Chromium? I'm looking at building a saboteur/combat trigger tribal deck and struggling to narrow down my colour choices. Grixis Marchesa is top of my list for now. Dimir has my favourite triggers Mindleech Mass, Fallen Shinobi and Ashling, the Extinguisher and red has haste enablers, Rage Reflection and Berserkers' Onslaught. Double strike could be a bit win more though.

PS Dauthi Embrace is a great, repeatable way to give unblockable that's less vulnerable than the auras.

I did try infect cards such as Tainted Strike but ended up cutting them. I play Dragon Shadow instead of Dauthi Embrace for the self-recursion.

Tks for upvoting

Love it. I've got a Volrath list myself, threw in some infect to help finish out games. Dauthi Embrace is an especially fun card, and Hatred can win you a game, too.
