When Dusk Legion Zealot enters the battlefield, you draw a card and you lose 1 life.

Hey, I just updated the deck.
I played a bunch of matches yesterday against a friend of mine, who plays Kess duel. Unfortunately, I couldn't play with different decks.
His Kess is really control/removal focused. A lot of removals and counters, so it was really tough for me.
My main take was: I need more draw. I don't have much more draw spells that can fit the deck, but I include some cards like Cremate and Dusk Legion Zealot. I also think I had too much ramp spells, so I took off a mana dork.
Made some other changes aswell. And I managed to get a Ranger's Guile, thanks for the suggestions!
Anyway, thanks for the comments! Cheers!

Pretty cool man. Very straightforward but I think it has a lot of important elements. I think card draw is the biggest thing you're missing, but that is hard to do in black for sure. Sign in Blood is good because it can double as a burn spell, but I'd definitely recommend getting some more Phyrexian Ragers, and maybe some other ETB card draw creatures like Dusk Legion Zealot, which you can double up on with Gravepurge if you can get them into the GY.

lukas96: It's funny, I actually just cut Dusk Legion Zealot in favour of Night's Whisper lol. Honestly I might end up switching it back, but I've also been considering re-adding a couple of the Village Rites/Deadly Dispute/etc. style of cards.
Patriarch's Bidding is a card I used to great effect back in the day. I hadn't really thought about it here but I think I'm going to consider it, too. Effects that return from my Graveyard to my Hand are generally better as I get to trigger Eminence again, but as a game goes longer that Patriarch's Bidding just gets more and more valuable.
Vampire Nocturnus is soooo good. Love this card! Despite being predominantly a Black build I just found this card was more often than not not doing it's thing, and it was regretfully cut.
Between Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Goblin Bombardment, Yahenni, Undying Partisan and the more narrow options like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Skullclamp, I tend to get quite a bit of value out of Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. They're also really nice as a way to get rid of Indestructible blockers.
Herald's Horn is actually a new addition that I haven't casted yet, so it may be that I agree with you but I don't have that data yet. I do like that it can act as a pseudo-draw tool, though.
Great suggestions! Thank you. =)

Anguished Unmaking and Vindicate are better than Bedevil and Utter End Imo. I honestly don't think that Sorin Markov is very good for this deck. Sure he sets one players live total to 10 but I wouldnt want to pay 6 mana for that. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is pretty good as a replacement for him imo. I would definitely play Patriarch's Bidding in this deck.
Skyblade of the Legion is a really low impact creature. You don't have that much lifegain in the deck so I don't think that Markov Purifier is any good for your deck. YOu dont have that many Swamps so Nirkana Revenant propably doesnt do much.

You have a pretty agressive creature base with a low mana curve which I definitely like. There aren't a lot of sac outlets in your deck so I don't think that Gravepact and Dictate of Erebos do much for your gameplan tbh. Your Vampires are so cheap I don't think that Herald's Horn does much.
I'm currently playing Night's Whisper in my deck as well but plan to replace it with Dusk Legion Zealot. Only draws one card but ads to your gameplan much better so maybe you want to consider that. What do you think about Patriarch's Bidding and Vampire Nocturnus (maybe you don't habe enough black cards for that one)

Also, I would personally either chuck the com-bo into the sun or go all in. Is this a combo deck, or an aggro/stompy one? Because if you're going aggro, you have 7 wasted slots, and if you're playing combo, you have 32. All in, or duck out. Simple as that.
If you want to go stompy, I'd personally recommend Nested Shambler or Grim Initiate for their Double-Lives, and possibly a full set of Myr Servitor for grindy matches. If going in for the combo, go with Viscera Seer, Dusk Legion Zealot, Street Wraith, and Sign in Blood; with an Impact Tremors in the back because Spoiler Alert: Control Decks don't care too much about your 99/99 Carrion Feeder unless you're able to wrestle them into submission with your lack of card advantage.
This is not meant to be harsh, just to say the reality. I wish we were in a Magical Christmas Land where this kind of decks can fly, however that is not the timeline we live in.

Hey Lucas_honorio_ !
Shirei was also my first commander deck. Its a really fun commander. Although she's a glass cannon, looping 1/1s is still my favorite. Here's my last budget build: Shirei/ Budget; and another that has a bunch of cards: Shirei/ Soft Stax [EDH].
You already have a lot of fun interactions, but you're gonna want consistency. I would play more draw and ramp, try to play almost exclusively low cmc, and only keep the best effects that are focused on your strategy. So -1 Open the Graves, -1 Genesis Chamber, etc... (you don't need tokens as much as you need sacrifice outlets and draw).
You want all your draw and ramp BEFORE Shirei hits the board. It'll help smooth the early game. Look for cards like Village Rites, Deadly Dispute, Plumb the Forbidden... pure gas to set up your wincon (Shirei).
Pro tip: Expect to play some archenemy. This is a deck that's "taking turns" on everyone's end step and is very easy to disrupt by forcing out Shirei.
btw you can list shirei as your commander like so:
1x Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker *CMDR*
