Wow! Thank you so much for the kind words!
Suggestions are always more than welcome. I'm definitely not omniscient. In fact, I didn't even think about the almighty Mystic Remora , which is a card I play in a few other decks. It is definitely worth including due to its raw power level. I'm not sure if it's going to replace DC, as I kind of like the flexibility of being able to copy him from the graveyard in the late game. Phyrexian Arena is probably what I'll end up cutting. After all, the average CMC of the deck is low enough that I can afford DC over the Arena. On the same note, I'm considering Ad Nauseam as a way to refuel in the late game. It shouldn't hurt too much. When you say I can dodge Remora's cumulative upkeep by morphing Lazav before my turn begins, what do you actually mean?
Scorched Ruins is yet another awesome suggestion. I particularly like that it taps for because, as you said, it's the magic number for many of our combos. This makes it a lot better than Lotus Vale and Lotus Field . It's a risky play, considering the chance to get blown up by land destruction. However, I think it's worth the risk.
Herald of Leshrac does have a very nice synergy with Lazav, but unfortunately his 7 CMC is way too high for this build. After all, it's the same mana cost of Phage the Untouchable , which can technically kill an opponent with a single attack. However, for a more "casual" build, it's a very fun (for you) card to try out.
Speaking of different kind of builds, that's the reason why I'm not playing Dauthi Voidwalker and Opposition Agent . They are both extremely powerful cards that work particularly well at high power tables, but they would take the deck in a different direction from the one I've chosen. This build is all about killing opponents as fast and safely as possible. I don't really care about interacting with their game plans, because the base idea is "kill them before they can start doing their things". However, mine is definitely not the only way of playing Lazav. I can perfectly see a more staxy build work well with him, where you include lots of cheap hatebears and deny your opponents' resources. It will be less explosive, but viable nonetheless.
Thanks again for your suggestions! They'll make the deck a lot better!

Thanks for the suggestions zapyourtumor. I had both Archetype of Finality and Duplicant in my previous version of this deck before I recently changed it up into its current iteration. I think I've had Herald of Leshrac on my maybeboard for a bit, but haven't really tried it yet.

So I'm building a list for our Sundial on a stick, Obeka, Brute Chronologist.
I am looking for cards that I can abuse with her end the turn effects.
Currently I've got Herald of Leshrac for land theft shenanigans, Phyrexian Dreadnought for a big beasty I can get out of paying the sac cost for, and Final Fortune/Last Chance for abuseable extra turn spells.
So far my list has a lot of random stuff thrown in otherwise since I'm looking for more of these types of cards.
