Search your library for any three cards and reveal them. Target opponent chooses one. Put that card into your hand and the rest into your graveyard. Then shuffle your library.

Still unsure what to replace Doomsday with, was trying to figure out if there is an Intuition win? Show and Tell + Omniscience + Enter the Infinite seems to work with the high CMC on them, hmm.
Wondering if I should focus more on the damage aspects (above would help with that too) instead of Doomsday.
The 3 CMC tutors seem heavy, and the Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar gets lots of hate. Thinking maybe more ninjas to try and draw more.
Still needs tweaks, but can't figure out what to do.

Id suggest switching out Relic of Progenitus with either Unlicensed Hearse or Scrabbling Claws. Poxwalkers, Prized Amalgam, and Master of Death are also cards that have proven to be super good in my Tormod deck although I also have Intuition, Entomb, Traumatize, Unmarked Grave, Altar of Dementia, Oriq Loremage and Vile Entomber in mine. Some dredge cards might help filling your grave. If you ever add fetchlands then I would also add Hostile Desert and Crucible of Worlds. Phyrexian Tower, High Market and Unholy Grotto/Volrath's Stronghold are some other good lands. Tortured Existence is also a must. 1 black mana per 2/2 zombie as much as you want is hard to beat.

SniperFrog Overmaster is a complete work horse in this deck! The prevelance of Ad Nauseam, Doomsday, Intuition, and Mnemonic Betrayal makes it a great thing to draw into and cast at all points of the game.
Black Market Connections is insane value in my opinion, being able to draw and ramp every turn for the low price of 3 life per turn is pushed lol.
Plunge into Darkness is hit-or-miss, and I consider replacing it pretty often. With so many other 1-card wincons in the deck, it's really only good for grabbing a missing piece for your Thassa's Oracle combo.
Opt can be great off-curve for drawing into an answer for a threat that you need to address immediately via tutor, or for expediting an Ad Nauseam. If I'm lucky enough to have Emergence Zone on the field, it can enable some very sneaky wins as well.
I consider Faithless Looting and Careful Study all the time, but I can't quite decide what to cut for them...
Thanks for the +1!

@Sephyrias: Raffine is good in many ways. She is evasive, has built-in protection, is fairly cheap to cast and in good colors. She generates value in the form of looting and buffs creatures, which can be good for so many valid competitive strategies like Doomsday, pseudo-Farm, Hatebears, reanimator, etc.
In our opinion there are differences between Evelyn, Anhelo and Zevlor. Sure, they could all win with a certain magecraft combo, but not only the combos matter, also synergy and a lot of other important points like overall gameplay value are part of the evaluation.
Zevlor for example can be part of Dramatic Scepter Combo, and he also breaks some cards like Intuition, Jeska's Will, Praetor's Grasp, Gitaxian Probe/Peek, Thoughtseize etc.
Anhelo is a 3 mana (mostly) do nothing, until you can sacrifice a creature to copy a spell. At least he has good colors and is a 1/3 with deathtouch, but Kess is in most usecases straight up better in competitive games.
Most of the time, we can compare commanders to already existing ones. Evelyn can be compared to Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, but Jeleva is one mana cheaper, and you have the ability to cast some good spells for free. One of the upsides of Evelyn is the fact that you can straight up win the game with the Worldgorger Dragon combo, BUT this upside is also a bit of a downside, since this combo is way too easy to interrupt and if you mess up, you straight up lose the game.
The list looks a bit different now, since we had to split the Tierlist. We didn't move Alela in a long time. Even if you have to jump through some hoops, Liara Portyr can generate quite some value with Wotc currently printing a ton of good red and white cards, with synergetic effects like myriad and other exile mechanics.
The Eloise, Nephalia Sleuth + March of the Machines combo is very slow and expensive and these cards aren't that great outside the specific combo, whereas Siona is very cheap to cast and also helps to search for the combo piece or a stax piece, while you can slow down the game with stax. Another big upside for Siona is, that she can win through most common hate pieces like Rule of Law.
@knusperklotz: You're kinda right, Baba Lysaga, Night Witch is a shaky candidate. I think she has the potential to be a high power commander. She can grind a lot of value in longer games, but he needs quite some set up to get going. We decided to first put her into mid tier, because she's in Lightning Bolt range and has no impact when she enters the battlefield. But she's definitely one of the better mid commanders. It's also very likely that we put her into high power when wotc release more synergetic cards for this commander.

It’s been awhile since you commented, glad to hear from you. Thanks for bringing these cards onto my radar. I've got some mixed opinions about each card, so let's discuss - Survival of the Fittest seems only viable when looking for the aforementioned Sliver Queen + Lavabelly Sliver + Basal Sliver combo. Otherwise, i'd just be populating my graveyard for a mass reanimation play that could either make or break my next turn and probably the rest of the game for me. Seems a little too high risk, high reward.
Survival of the Fittest only makes me miss Paradox Engine that much more. I guess I just need to see how it's viable outside of just tutoring for the previously mentioned. Separately, I saw a Sliver themed alter of this card that is really awesome:
Intuition in a good card, but i'm not sure it'll be good in this deck. It would be a great tutor for decks that have reanimation as a primary theme.
Dregscape Sliver on the other hand I’m seriously considering - i'd cut Patriarch's Bidding, as the benefit of only targeting my stuff outweighs the exile at the end of turn. I tend to face a lot of tribal decks in my meta(s), so not bringing back everyone else's graveyard to seal the deal on a combo seems like an easy decision.
Welcome to my deck page, thank you for posting. I've always held Magma Sliver in high regard, but the issue i've had with it is that for it to be a viable card on the board I would need to reach a "critical mass" of Slivers on board. By itself, it's ability is so-so. But I now realize when accompanied by Sentinel Sliver and/or Bonescythe Sliver this creature can make a somewhat threatening board get really out of hand.
To be honest, it's been a long time since i've taken another look at this card. The last time I considered it's inclusion was before M14 at least. Now, after Modern Horizons there are a bunch of more interesting combinations we could use. You've convinced me - i'll be cutting Heart Sliver (as Cloudshredder Sliver makes it obsolete) for Magma.
The only problem I have to worry about now is if Crystalline Sliver is on board. Also, what the heck is happening with Magma Sliver? It just had a serious price spike! You know something I don't?
Thanks again for all of your awesome suggestions and discussion. You help keep this deck list evolving.

Hello Mortlocke, long time since my last comment!
I'm binging to you some new lines you would like about the Sliver Queen + Basal Sliver + Lavabelly Sliver. Generally speaking this combo is not that easy to assemble, since it normally requires 2 tutor effects if we already got one of those 3 in our hand or battlefield.
The addition of Dregscape Sliver will allow us to use tutor cards like Intuition or Survival of the Fittest.
With Intuition we basically tutor for Dregscape and 2 other slivers, and our opponent doesn't have a valid option to interrupt our plan, since whatever card he will choose, we will always be able to return everything from our graveyard thanks to unearth.
With Survival of the Fittest we will need before our turn and one creature in hand. We basically tutor and bin what we tutored for, until all 3 pieces are in our graveyard and Dregscape in our hand. We then cast Dregscape Sliver and unearth everything for the win.
Generally speaking with those 2 lines, Dregscape Sliver will also pay the cost for the first Sliver Queen ability activation, due to Basal Sliver ability.
Let me know what you think about this, you can always find my primer on moxfield or deckstats under the username MrPonzi.

Enlightened Tutor, Final Parting, and Intuition are all cards that can help you find your hedrons, and apart from the tutor, can put one into your hand and one into your graveyard for you.
