Each opponent loses X life. You gain life equal to the life lost this way.

I fucking adore this deck, I don't have too many notes.
Arcane Lighthouse would be nice to take control of creatures with Hexproof or Shroud.
Something like Phyrexian Tower, Viscera Seer, or Yawgmoth, Thran Physician might be nice so you can sacrifice the creatures you steal for free if you can't untap Merieke, or if you use something other than Merieke to steal it.
Exsanguinate/Torment of Hailfire and maybe even Sphinx's Revelation would both make good use of your infinite mana combo, since there aren't too many payoffs for it. Without a few decent X spells you might find it doesn't do a lot for you.

Celestine, the Living Saint fits the theme and helps get creatures back into play. Liesa, Forgotten Archangel will help too, but does return them to hand.
Try Plumb the Forbidden in Sign in Bloods slot. Instant speed makes this card a great response to boardwipes and I get the feeling you'll have plenty of life lol.
Debt to the Deathless/Exsanguinate actually fit the theme while giving you some non-combat reach to finish games.
This last one's a bit more expensive,but Sheoldred, the Apocalypse would be amazing here.
SilencedDax on Phylactery lich: a Rule 0 …

I bring you the title's idea 'cause I talked with my playgroup to see if they would be fine with Phylactery Lich as a commander.
The advice I ask for is: What would you think it would be a great topic for this deck?
I have some ideas that I would like to shere with you:
A lot of Black pips theme , try to find a cohesive deck between cards with a lot of them, at least and more, like Phyrexian Obliterator, Necropotence and so on... and then Gray Merchant of Asphodel
Creature cards that have a special bond with an artifact, enchantment, creature or whatever to keep the Phylactery theme. This seems the most difficult to find!!!
Cards that destroy everything except the Phylactery Lich and it's totem, to remark the flavour that it is no easy to kill.
Some zombie synergies with our commander would be great, with out be a zombie deck, like Lord of the Undead or Call to the Grave.
permanents that start as artifacts and then flip, thanks to ruusuv, like Treasure Map Flip, Mirror of the Forebears, or Mirage Mirror
I dont want a Lich theme deck aroud the 3 Lich enchantments, even though it'd be really flavorfull, it's not the kind of game I enjoy the most. But some lich cards 'd be great like Lich's Mirror, Lich's Tomb and some lich creatures. And some card that do what liches does, like Drain Life, or Consume Spirit.
I try to avoid Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire 'cause I seen them many times, as well as any open enden black tutor.
What do you think? any other idea or card?
I'll do a public deck with this ideas and the ideas you give me so it could be a deck made by everyone!
All the ideas that we have share until now:

I only skimmed the deck + description. But have you thought of having an alt wincon like Exsanguinate, Torment of Hailfire or just a mike and trike combo?

The Reaver Cleaver feels like it'd be right at home here.
A few X spells as payoff would go a long ways here too with all this treasure creation. Exsanguinate, Torment of Hailfire, and/or Genesis Wave are the main 3 that come to mind.
Ohran Frostfang would be a really good draw engine here seeing as you're running 40 creatures and deathtouch for your attacking creatures will be pretty relevant too.
Song of the Dryads and Beast Within I'd run over Putrefy and Bedevil for the added versatility.

Zarthalius Agreed! I usually use cards like Reckless Fireweaver and Nadier's Nightblade as ping engines that stay there the whole game and slowly drain my opponents. Marionette is too big a threat for the other players to let me do that, but I usually try to use her late game when I know I can take out all the remaining players with her in one shot. I essentially use her like I would use a Crackle with Power, I hold onto her until I know I can win with her.
Exsanguinate seems super cool because it's versatile! I can use it to win, but I can also use it to save myself and hopefully take out a player or two in the process. With cards like Bolas's Citadel and Sensei's Divining Top it won't be too hard for me to then regain the momentum I lost to the spell.
My one worry with Torment of Hailfire, if I'm honest, is that I won't have good opportunities to kill opponents with it and because my deck isn't centered around combat, 50% of the time I'd then be dead in the water. Idk, I guess I'll have to try it!

I was never able to use Torment of Hailfire, it is too expensive $ wise. But I did land on it as one of the few X spells that had potential of ending every player at once either by loss of life, them quitting, or them loosing their board state and you swinging in. What I've found is that if you are going to spend all/most your treasure for an ALPHA strike, it needs to kill everyone. This is the main weakness to cards like Marionette Master as an ALPHA striker; they deplete your treasure reserves for only 1 kill then leave you in a hard place to come back from. I once was forced to use Marionette Master to kill a single player (36 dmg ALPHA strike); he was about to board wipe everything including artifacts. Everyone's eyes went wide open when they witnessed the power of Prosper first hand! I however then proceeded to loose the game because that attack took too to much momentum (treasures) which I could not recover from while the others were unaffected. I don't believe Torment of Hailfire will have this problem.
Exsanguinate is crazy because it drains each opponent but also gives you life. But, it obviously scales with a bigger player count. In a 4 player game, you'd drain each opponent for X and gain 4X life from the transaction. It's nice to gain some life when black usually makes you spend so much of it.
