TypicalTimmy I love the new Garna, Bloodfist of Keld -- Her stainglass foily majesty lights up my Rakdos or Jund pretties. I would say is better many ways... though, for just straight up enhancing dmg to make an infect blowout more worthwhile has its' advantages (dmg doublers.. Fiendish Duo, Fiery Emancipation probably more budget options too.
One that is a solid consideration for you would be Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip - you have the double striker in a pinch... but boy, that blood avatar token on the flip side is vicious with infect.. I usually give him lifelink

Yeah Hero of Bladehold is 100% on the wishlist but on hold for budgetary reasons. I’m deep in brew mode and buying cheap cards to make several decks. And this was outdated when you saw this. Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip was in for flip side but already cut along with Savior of Ollenbock for a silly combo of Devilish Valet and Delina, Wild Mage

You could probably cut Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip, since you're very light on instants & sorceries, unless you're mostly focusing on playing the flip side. Even then, I'd say that's a spot that could be used for something more synergistic.
Hope the feedback is helpful. Lmk if you'd like any additional suggestions.

I mean Bring to Light can also hit cards like Valki, God of Lies Flip, Mila, Crafty Companion Flip and Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip and play their flip sides, or even something like the bust side of Boom / Bust, but I want the card to be playable on its own as well (I don't want to regret drawing it). The closest I can think of in that aspect is Crime / Punishment, but I can't really guarantee I can hit anything with the crime side of the card when I need to. The punishment side of that card makes it playable on its own as a targeted wipe, similar to Engineered Explosives.

Haha! legendofa I had this feeling that you were at heart!
Well, I tend to rock the . I like to make the whole table bleed, put a clock on it, & also throw a party while I'm at it. Make the sitback & controllsters realize too late that their life totals can be important. All, the while I am rocking expendable threats that leave my opponents feeling empty inside when they try to control me too much :) .
I feel "strongest", while being subjective, is probably .
As for It can go suck a lemon. Blue with its' thinks I'm clever... but I just have catch-all overpowering gimmicks. Nothing clever about extra turns or nixing out any spell in the game with few exceptions - lazy Jace personifies his dud color well... I'm supposed to sly-guy, lets outwi....nah, guess it'll just be unstoppable mind-control FTW. If I would wave a wand I would remove all but the most expensive extra-turns spells with self-exiling. I would burn the counterspells. Lord knows doesn't need pre-emptive removal with WoTC deciding to give it efficient & recurrent exile options. My opinion on this always stands though: make better punishment options so that catch-alls are no longer catch-alls.
Not really sure on aura's, never use 'em much.
I'm not much of a tribe guy either, but I would say I like Warriors the best. Though Najeela, the Blade-Blossom ruins this for me a bit, since she feels like a WUBRG strictly-better warrior commander. But I do love some of the static abilities on warriors Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil are beauties. Warlocks are quickly becoming a favorite for me too Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip is just too wacky to get a handle on.
I sit at 38-40 lands.. I tend to run alot of spells that destroy all rocks & dorks so it makes sense for me that I hit curve more with lands or use-it-or-lose it options.

Queen Marchesa for versatility & monarch. Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip for versatility & being the road less traveled. I'd recommend an oddball outside of the top 50 EDREC most played, then you can experience the fun of making something that is all you. I would say just proxie up some of your ideas first, then you don't buy up all that stuff & find a deck to be too linear for your taste.

I like the suggestion of Showdown of the Skalds, but you're pretty much splashing white only for 2 copies of Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip and 4 copies of a very mediocre Sea Gate Banneret. You might as well go full Rakdos (red black) since you really should swap those 4 Sea Gate Banneret for some Forsworn Paladin anyway, and then you'd only need a single treasure or pathway on white to play the front side of Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip.
You could probably try to squeeze in a Price of Loyalty just because it could lead to really strong turns with all the treasure/sacrifice synergies you're already running. Speaking of which, Skullport Merchant would also be a very nice fit since you don't have much 3 drops in your curve. Maybe cutting a few 1 or 4 cmc cards here and there would make sense too. A few copies of Hoarding Ogre would be the 1st things to go if I was you. Another good 3 drop would Soul Shatter since it's really strong in this meta for cards like Goldspan Dragon, Koma, Cosmos Serpent, various planeswalkers, etc, and you barely run any removal as it is which is kind of odd in these colors.
