Have you considered running Urborg Justice? An instant speed Grave Pact-like effect can really catch your opponents off guard. Since they don't see it coming, they are much more likely to commit to their board.

If you do end up running it, I would try replacing it with one of your more conditional spot removals like Grasp of Darkness, Dismember, Defile, etc. Good luck!

yeah i was too lazy to give actual feedback on nonland cards sorry

Gatekeeper is really good, I'd put it in as a 3 of at least. If you wanna lean more into the sacrifice for value build with Blood Artist/Viscera Seer/Bloodghast/Cordial Vampire etc you can run Kalastria Highborn.

For Doom blade replacements, we have Bloodchief's Thirst, Dismember, Infernal Grasp, maybe Heartless Act. With the new innistrad sets running Victim of Night seems like a bad idea so I won't suggest it.

I agree with ShieldOfHolyShadows: your Manacurve end's to high.
Exchange Rampage of the Valkyries and Starnheim Unleashed for early interaction, either Discard: Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize or Removal: Dismember, Bloodchief's Thirst, Fatal Push (if you have the Fetchlands)
Also you probably can exchange one Temple of Silence for a Seraph Sanctuary to help you with your lifegain.

Very cool deck! Some thoughts from my first glance:

  • I really like the addition of Dauthi Voidwalker here but surprised you’re not playing the full playset - the card feels lile pure gas for this deck.

  • Dismember feels odd here, because life is valuable. Feels like a sideboard card at best? I’m not sure how often you need this?

  • I see Bitterblossom in the maybeboard… personally I think running 2ish of them could be strong, though not sure how much it messes with your existing tempo?

  • How has the land count gone for you? It feels pretty low to me - though i get you have a lot of low cost stuff, and card draw - so presumably it’s fine?

  • I think it would be strong to have a splash of white in the landbase so you can include Teferi, Time Raveler in the sideboard… he’ll basically guarantee you can ninjitsu without interruption, which feels really valuable here. Spellskite is good but very short-lived in these scenarios.

Yeah, 2/24 lands allow you to play 16 of your creatures when you name Eldrazi, but every other card in your deck would be dead, especially if you didn't happen to have one of those 2 lands in your opening hand.

I'm just saying it might be worth considering a basic Swamp or something. You produce colorless with basically all of your lands, so you don't really need a basic that does colorless as much (still need Wastes for Blood Moon since at least Expedition Map is another virtual 4 copies of Wastes).

For instance you could replace 1 Wastes with literally any other basic land, then you could pre-play Expedition Map and crack it with any mana to find the singular colored mana source that would allow you to play around Void Mirror with all of your artifacts etc.

The best basic land for your current decklist is probably Swamp since it lets you pay 2 less life for Dismember if desired.

I've been building a similar list and I like your use of Dismember. Have you tried using Cryptic Command's? Have Archmage's Charm been a better alternative? Shardless BUG in Modern is my current list.

Have you ever thought about custom set development? These cards are great XD

I personally like the Gitaxian Sphere more, and not just because I'm a Phyrexian nut, but because it seems like you get a bit more bang for your buck. Sphere of True Seeing is a neat mana sink, I could see it at common or uncommon rarity, defnitely uncommon if it was taken down to 3, but I don't know.

I agree with you that the cost would've been too flexible. Just look at Dismember, lol. I think the Gitaxian Sphere belongs at either uncommon or rare.
