Hey! Joey from EDHRECast commented on upgrades for Captain N'ghathrod here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obGhfxKWkk4. He focus more on the mill side of things, so he has more targets for reanimation.
Doing my research on topics he didn't touch on, you might want to consider:
- Some evasion for your Horrors: Intimidation, Vela the Night-Clad;
- Some recursion with Beacon of Unrest, Body Double, Boneyard Parley;
- Ramp that does something else: Heraldic Banner, Midnight Clock, Phyrexian Totem;
- Draw that fills your graveyard: Fact or Fiction, Hostile Negotiations, Scattered Thoughts, Scion of Halaster.
Just like what I did with Menacing Aura, it might be wise to stuff some utility into your lands, so you have more options when playing your matches.
- Access Tunnel is a second copy of Rogue's Passage. If all else fails, it at least works on Captain N'ghathrod itself.
- Talking about second copies, Tomb Fortress is a second Port of Karfell in your build.
- Bojuka Bog is a must for when another graveyard deck gets out of control.
- Memorial to Folly is a late game alternative for gas when your hand is depleted.
- Geier Reach Sanitarium lets you sculpt your hand and graveyard for recursion later. It may also put some fatties on your opponents' graveyards for you to reanimate.
- Hagra Mauling Flip is removal on a land.
- Terrain Generator ramps you when you have nothing else to do with your mana.
- Faceless Haven is another Horror at your disposal, as long as you run
- 7x Snow-Covered Island and 7x Snow-Covered Swamp.
- And to tie all together, Tolaria West, that can search any of the lands above.

Hi soul_knightmare, Thanks for your comment :) While looking through my deck, i saw, i already added Yavimaya Coast^^
Bred for the Hunt and Guardian Project are already on my wants-list, Mystic Remora is a nice tipp, i'm still not sure, i like the card that much. But i will give it a try. Same for Fact or Fiction.
Psychic Possession seems very expensive with cmc 4. On my list is Cold-Eyed Selkie, which i want to try out soon.
Lands are a generell problem, cause i also have a Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm and a Go-Shintai of Life's Origin deck, which also need green-blue-Lands. But i put your suggestions into my list, it's always work in progress.

I feel like some of the inconsistency described could be you are lacking on card draw. Coiling Oracle is more ramp, otherwise it just cantrips and Towashi Guide-Bot is very expensive to get out at four mana and too conditional for a single card draw per table go round.
I would cut those and include Bred for the Hunt, Guardian Project, Mystic Remora, Fact or Fiction, or Psychic Possession.
Your Mana is also a little slow. I would cut the tapped lands and include still budget friendly fast lands like Hinterland Harbor, Yavimaya Coast, Vineglimmer Snarl, and Exotic Orchard.

Rasaru - updated the list to reflect what I am currently running with. Big changes including new power like Displacer Kitten/Glasspool Mimic Flip/Chromatic Orrery/Lae'zel's Acrobatics. Invested more into Stifle effects (Tale's End, Trickbind, Disallow, Sublime Epiphany) which power up our flicker-removal value via countering the delayed trigger, some direct upgrades/substitutions (eg: Rout --> Vanquish the Horde, Sanctum Gargoyle --> Archaeomender, Fact or Fiction --> Memory Deluge), and finally caved to the mainboard Eldrazi Displacer.
Updated the deck tech and tutor targets to reflect the mainboard more accurately, added more details about why Stifle effects over raw Counterspell.
Thanks for checking it out, let me know what y

Hey, you're welcome. Good job with the update, thanks for the shoutout.
Thespian's Stage combos with Dark Depths to get Marit Lage. Stage copies Depths to become a copy with no ice counters that's then saced to create Marit Lage. When you copy Depths due to the legendary rule you will have to choose one of them. Choose the Stage copy and put the original Depths into your graveyard. Moritte of the Frost is a budget snow creature who can copy any permanent you control to be snow.
Expanding on self-mill can fuel Muldrotha and get snow lands into your graveyard to reanimate a lot of them at one time with World Shaper. Shaper has to die to trigger it's land effect. Plaguecrafter is great in multiplayer Commander since it makes all your opponents sac a creature, or a Planeswalker or discard a card. It can sac itself making it a nice repeatable effect with Muldrotha.
Self-mill is like draw plus selection with Muldrotha since you fill your graveyard up with permanents to play.
- Cemetery Tampering
- Sultai Ascendancy
- Vessel of Nascency
- Satyr Wayfinder
- Grisly Salvage
- Fact or Fiction
Cemetery Tampering is repeatable self-mill with hideaway 5. When it enters the battlefield you look at the top five cards of your library and choose one of them. This card is then exiled and you may play it for no mana at your upkeep if you have 20 or more cards in your graveyard. Hideaway can be repeatable with Muldrotha if you have a way to destroy Tampering getting it into your graveyard to cast it again.
Seal of Primordium can repeatedly destroy Cemetery Tampering after your upkeep, after you mill, after you play the hideaway card for free. Seal is excellent with Muldrotha having a repeatable effect from an enchantment to remove an artifact or enchantment.
Repeatable protection for Muldrotha, Marit Lage, etc. can be helpful. Muldrotha is going to have a target on it when it enters the battlefield and Kaya's Ghostform can protect from many types of removal. It's one mana to repeatable cast it from your graveyard on your turn to protect Muldrotha.
One of the better ways to protect 20/20 indestructible Marit Lage is giving it hexproof since then exile and bounce opponent removal that targets can't target Marit Lage. Swiftfoot Boots gives equipped creature hexproof as well as haste and that's also powerful with Marit Lage getting to attack the same turn it's created if it's created on your turn. Siren Stormtamer is one mana to cast and one mana to sac to protect a creature or even yourself. Muldrotha makes Stormtamer a repeatable counterspell for creature or yourself protection.

Niv-Mizzet, Parun seems like a nice inclusion. For me Blistercoil Weird and Delver of Secrets Flip feels underwhelming in edh you can swap them for some more draw or since you like cipher even Triton Shorestalker and Mist-Cloaked Herald.
Since you asked for card draw suggestions the main staples are X spells like Blue Sun's Zenith,Pull from Tomorrow, 4 CMC type Fact or Fiction / Steam Augury or Behold the Multiverse stuff and cantrips like Brainstorm, Ponder etc. There are also wheels like Windfall. Have you checked Scryfall? Their search engine is rather easy to use.
I still haven't build my Niv deck but I plan to put in the transmute package to find me the three combo pieces
Dizzy Spell for Curiosity
Drift of Phantasms for Tandem Lookout or Ophidian Eye
Hope this helps. Cheers!

Hey, you have an interesting/fun deck, but sorry it's casual power level (PL) 5 at most.
Lands in the manabase and ramp sources are a big sign of what PL. A low budget manabase that has Highland Lake and Temple of the False God isn't PL 7-8. Very little ramp with a 4.0 avg. CMC is not PL 7-8. Please get rid of Temple of the False God.
It's difficult to get to PL 8 or higher on a low budget because the best lands and mana rocks are some of the most expensive cards in Commander. At best on a low budget unless playing mono-colored you're looking at PL 6. Your deck doesn't have any instants or sorceries? Izzet has many good low budget instants and sorceries especially for draw.
You have an infinite combo Niv-Mizzet, Parun + Curiosity, that helps to have a higher PL. Although, Niv-Mizzet, Parun is better as a win condition when it's the Commander not inside the 99. You have many potential other win conditions: Purphoros, God of the Forge, Reckless Fireweaver, Impact Tremors, Nettle Drone, etc., but lack enablers to combo with these win conditions.
To increase PL your deck needs to be more tuned to get to the final goal which is to win the game. PL 8 uses just about all cards in the deck to help to assemble a combo win, ramp, tutor, draw, protect the combo or stop an opponent's combo. If a card doesn't help to do one of these then it's not needed in the deck. Don't try to get to PL 8 unless you can spend for expensive price cards instead shoot for PL 6.
Here's some low budget cards to increase the PL of your deck:
- Arcane Signet
- Talisman of Creativity
- Izzet Signet
- Mind Stone
- Shivan Reef
- Cascade Bluffs
- Glint-Horn Buccaneer
- Tandem Lookout
- Ophidian Eye
- Frantic Search
- Arcane Denial
- Pull from Tomorrow
- Fact or Fiction
- Sigil of Sleep
- Basilisk Collar
- Banishing Knack
- Everflowing Chalice
- Retraction Helix
- Expansion / Explosion
- Dualcaster Mage
- Solve the Equation
- Ral, Storm Conduit
- Memory Deluge
- Chaos Warp
- Grixis Panorama
- Temple of Epiphany
- Izzet Boilerworks

An 8 or a 9 is hard. I think a distinguishing feature of a 7 is that the deck will aggressively win if left unchecked. Aside from a few problems with your deck running out of gas and having to play one spell a turn, I'd say with some lucky draws you are winning by turn 5 or 6 regularly; i.e. a 7. When I think of an 8 or a 9, I think that this deck will guarantee a win unless someone designed their deck to beat yours. This pushes past normal levels of competitiveness into something more. Some decks can never be an 8 or 9 because the strategy isn't inherently unfair enough. You may be able to get to an 8, I doubt this strategy can ever be a 9.
That being said, we can squeeze more out of your current strategy. there are a lot of inefficient creatures, inefficient ramp, and room for other non-creature spells here.
- Once Upon a Time
- The Great Henge
- Sylvan Library
- Mana Crypt
- Chrome Mox
- Mox Diamond
- Tireless Provisioner
- Tireless Tracker
- Risen Reef
- Glasspool Mimic Flip
- Fact or Fiction
- Agent of Treachery
- Sea Gate Restoration Flip
- Hullbreaker Horror
Those are just a few examples of cards, in general you want to smooth out your early game, and both tireless do that with either card draw or treasure. I feel like you could seriously improve your 6+ roster. Get rid of any 6+ cards that you feel like don't lead to winning the game the next turn. Let me know if you want to continue, have any questions, etc.
