Gonti, Lord of Luxury
Legendary Creature — Aetherborn Rogue
When Gonti, Lord of Luxury enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of target opponent's library, exile one of them face down, then put the rest on the bottom of that library in a random order. For as long as that card remains exiled, you may look at it, you may cast it, and your may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury Discussion
4 days ago
I am thinking of cutting Gonti, Lord of Luxury eventually. I'm keeping Massacre Girl until I can replace her with Massacre Wurm . I like Lord of Extinction but I keep forgetting about it so I'll add it to the maybe board now so I don't forget.
I already took Victimize out the deck for Whisper, Blood Liturgist as for one more mana I got a lot more uses out of it. I don't like Animate Dead because of all the ways to get creatures out of the graveyard i would have to wait for it to die to use it again.

Ehi nice deck and very cool bling you got here! Even if I think your list is pretty optmized, I feel obliged to recommend to you Wingcrafter , a low drop on your first turn or a way to grant evasion to your Commander later.
In my list I use Trinket Mage too, since it can grab a piece of mana ramp, an Ornithopter or Sensei's Divining Top . In particular I feel Ornithopter is a must have, since nullifies the inevitable tempo loss coming with Ninjutsu, as well as Cloud of Faeries .
Finally, even if in my build I went more on the steal plan, focusing a bit on our opponent top of the library, I feel like Scheming Symmetry can do some work to blow the final punch to the table. But my favourite use of that is setting up a Gonti, Lord of Luxury play, taking what your target has chosen and then bounce and play again him.
Good work! +1

Depending on the deck I would say Gonti, Lord of Luxury could be a good card since more often than not you can steal a pretty good card from an opponent.

EDH is really fun! Especially when you make a deck around a theme. I've made a similar Grixis theft deck with Jeleva. Here's a bunch of cards I have found fun and effective in my Grixis theft deck:
Emrakul, the Promised End , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Grenzo, Havoc Raiser , Havengul Lich , Hostage Taker , Keiga, the Tide Star , Kheru Mind-Eater , Lord of the Void , Mindclaw Shaman , Necrotic Ooze , Nightveil Specter , Sepulchral Primordial , Sphinx Ambassador , Boneyard Parley , Knowledge Exploitation , Mnemonic Betrayal , Order of Succession , Role Reversal , Talent of the Telepath , Telemin Performance , Worst Fears , Commandeer , Desertion , Gather Specimens , Redirect , Reverberate , Spelljack , Wild Ricochet , Chaos Wand , Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

Who doesn't love some good ol' mono black! A Salvaging Station package could be rad here, with cards like Codex Shredder , Mishra's Bauble , Lotus Petal , and Nihil Spellbomb . I particularly enjoy Codex Shredder in mono black since paying 6 mana is rarely an issue, and it lets you recur any card. Bolas's Citadel could be neat here as well, especially in conjunction with Sensei's Top (together they give you the ability "pay 1 life: draw a card"). Other cards you might consider include: Necropotence , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Kaya's Ghostform , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , Cauldron of Souls , Bubbling Muck , Extraplanar Lens , Gauntlet of Power , Caged Sun , Dread Presence , Deserted Temple , Thespian's Stage , Vesuva

SirChris39 i don't like at all Olivia, Mobilized for War even if Olivia Voldaren is one of my favorite cards in the game, there's no point to make creatures hasty and +1/+1 if the goal of the deck is wordlgorger combo or dualcaster+twinflame combo, Ad Nauseam even if it is indeed one of the best cards in cEDH, i can't recommend it in a deck with so high cmc cost due to the madness cards we use to cycle then deck, it can turn very bad for us in terms of damange taken. Insidious Dreams that's a great card i will consider to add to my mainboard since it can be another Doomsday for just 1 more mana and some cards in hand, all without the doomsday backdraw of exiling every other card from both library and graeyard. The manabase isn't great since the deck aim is to be budget you haven't access to cards like Ancient Tomb and Badland but for sure i will cut 4 mountains and add 4 swamps since you need more black than red. not having access to Mana Crypt is the worst part of playing in budget, since you don't run solid mana acceleratos, you can't get Anje Falkenrath on turn 2 and that's really bad; some budget accelerators for turn 2 anje could be Blood Pet , Skirk Prospector , Jeweled Amulet , Simian Spirit Guide , Dark Ritual . Sadly, if you want to play cEDH on budget, you have to be prepared to hard loses since things like the diamond cycle and Everflowing Chalice are just too slow for the format. The main problem with a deck like anje madness combo is actually his game plan: you can't decide to play the worldgorger dragon combo in a casual way because it is just too good so you have to play it in a competitive way in order to match your opponet's power level because if you bring a combo deck like this against a casual group hug Phelddagrif player, the gameplay would be like a solitary of yourself doing your things with the opponent trying to interact with you in a suboptimal way and that's just not fun, either way, you can't sit at a cEDH table with a deck that is way too slow for the format because you will end up to be eaten by flash+hulk, isocron shepter+drammatic reversal, ad nauseam storm, teferi+chain veil. The solutions to this problem are actually 3 (if i don't forget others but idk): use proxy cards if you don't play sancioned events and if your playgroup allow them, invest some money buying cards and bringing your deck to the required power level or you can remove all the combos and play the deck just like a madness deck at a casual EDH table; i personally don't like this last option but can turn to be a fun archetype to build and play since you can use really strong and fun cards like Bone Miser , Waste Not with all the discard hatebears, Liliana Vess , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and his son K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth or cards like Praetor's Grasp , Sheoldred, Whispering One and Gonti, Lord of Luxury for some "heavy black deck flavor" or you can even turn it to a full vampire madness tribal with Falkenrath Gorger ! If you want to stick to the good old one Worldgorger Dragon combo, pls don't do it in casual edh but try to tweak at best for cedh instead otherwise you will ruin some random player day without having fun at all, i can say that 100% . Hope i helped you is some way and happy brewing :D

You have a lot of cards that cost 2 but you don't really want to cast on turn 2. Things like Zulaport Cutthroat should be saved in hand for a big play, for example, and Costly Plunder will probably rarely be cast on turn 2, whereas something like Sakura-Tribe Elder will ALWAYS be played on turn 2. Same with Farseek , Nature's Lore , etc.
Top-end should really be wincons. You have Pathbreaker Ibex , Overwhelming Stampede , and Command the Dreadhorde for that, and I think you could fit in one or two more big ones. Rise of the Dark Realms , Craterhoof Behemoth , Triumph of the Hordes , Avenger of Zendikar , Rune-Scarred Demon to tutor for answers/wincons - these are all solid top-end choices.
I would cut your creature-count by about 5. I suggest looking at Massacre Girl , Skullwinder , Carrion Feeder , Whisper, Blood Liturgist , World Shaper , Gonti, Lord of Luxury . Most of these are decent cards, but I don't think they do enough in your build.
