Like, I get that you're salty because the win you were expecting evaporated because you (a blue player!) didn't hold up counters or other effects to stop your Intuition being interacted with.
But you losing a game doesn't necessitate a ban.

Oh, now I see what you mean. Well, unfortunately Lazav can only copy creatures and Remora is an enchantment. However, it is still well worth the inclusion as a powerful standalone draw spell.
As regards Scorched Ruins , it's true that some of our combos require coloured mana. However, four colourless mana is still very useful. I think we should see it more as a ritual for when we want to go in rather than a regular ramp source.
I'm all with you when it comes to card prices. I've been quite lucky on that aspect. Cards cost a lot less here in Europe, and I've managed to buy a Phyrexian Dreadnought and Intuition for 20€ and 30€ respectively less than three years ago, before all the Reserved List buyout nonsense. If I were to buy them right now, with the huge jump in prices, it would be impossible. Intuition is one of the most powerful cards in the deck but, being a tutor, can be replaced somewhat effectively. Dreadnought is the only mandatory inclusion, but I can't recommend spending more than a hundred dollars on a card that can only see play in this very specific deck.
Good luck with your dark schemes. May the shadows be with you! :)

Either mill your opponents out or in case they play a shuffledrazi just mill yourself and win with thassas oracle or lab-jace. I play the combo with LED instead of lotus petal to make it mana neutral to start and generate mana in the process. You can also search the whole combo with Intuition . If you look for more gas, I got a Muldrotha primer online here

"Replaced Merciless Eviction with Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant Reason: The instant speed removal potential of Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant and the several sacrifice outlets in the deck, plus being free with Rooftop Storm , makes this a better include. While the deck can recover from having it's perminants exiled, it isn't something I'm overly keen on rebuilding through.
Replaced Animate Dead with Necromancy Reason: Necromancy lets me return and sacrifice Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant during my oppponents' turns, which is awesome. It also gives Nev more flexibility at creating tapped 2/2 zombies following any of their own board wipes.
Replaced Liliana's Standard Bearer with Rhystic Study Reason: Liliana's Standard Bearer is just too situational. I've kept it in my sideboard to help depower the deck depending on the playgroup. I really like it and it does work well with Haakon.
Replaced Mystical Tutor with Leyline of Anticipation Reason: There are too few instant and sorceries for me to be able to justify this. I've found that having the ability to generate infinite mana with Gravecrawler and Phyrexian Altar is much better. Or instant speed wraths with Damnation .
Replaced Scheming Symmetry with Intuition Reason: I wanted to reduce the number of tutor effects in the deck, though I've had a spare Intuition for some time and really wanted to find a home for it. It seems to work really well, especially with Sevinne's Reclamation
Replaced Silence with Trickbind Reason: Silence was there to help me secure the win if I need to go through the Dream Halls but the majority of the time, if I've managed to get down Notion Thief first and wheel, then it does the same effect. Trickbind does also give me protection against planeswalker abilities and most graveyard exile effects.
Replaced Dramatic Reversal with Mind Over Matter Reason: I had looked to play online, with one discord channel advising that I would need to remove the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo, as it would be too strong. They also told me to remove Mana Crypt , though this is partly a deck designed to use some of my more expensive cards and make Varina as optimized as possible while still keeping the zombie theme. Adding in Mind Over Matter was a lucky find. In order for the infinite loop, I need to discard my deck to my graveyard. I enjoy the 4 blue mana cost, as it's harder to reach that devotion. Thankfully, with the treasure tokens from Smothering Tithe and Replenish to cheat it back into play.
Replaced Isochron Scepter with Emergency Powers Reason: Removing the Scepter makes sense as it's not required for the infinite loop anymore. But I've found that adding a 3rd Timetwister effect means a higher chance of drawing into one following a previous instance, like Echo of Eons + Time Spiral . These work really nicely with Narset's Reversal and God-Eternal Kefnet , as both bypass the exile clause on a lot of these cards - in addition to Teferi's Protection . Being instant speed also gives me a layer of protection against graveyard exile effects."

I mean reanimator already exists as a hub. And I think that 'graveyard' would be a more useful hub than 'self-mill' specifically. That way you're capturing cards like Intuition , Entomb , Buried Alive , all that jazz under the one hub. Self-mill implies using cards like Stitcher's Supplier , however there are plenty more ways to fill a graveyard than just these.

Kaya's Ghostform , Altar of Dementia and Lotus Petal generate infinite mill for everyone. You could also mill yourself and win with Jace or oracle if you have the extra mana. Or if you use LED instead of lotus petal you also generate infinite mana. Those 3 cards are a cheap combo in terms of mana with 3 mana total, all cards should be affordable and in case you have an Intuition they form a nice package to search up. Also they’re pretty useful on their own outside of the combo. I use that combo in my Muldrotha and it gets a lot of work done

Yep, lotus petal, altar of dementia and Kaya’s ghostform is nasty. Infinite Muldrotha sacs is fun. Those 3 are a nice package to search with Intuition if you ever get one. I play that combo with Lion's Eye Diamond to also generate infinite mana and cast all cards from my grave, but lotus petal works too. If you’re looking for further improvements feel free to check my primer on Muldrotha. You may find some new toys there

Sounds like a nice direction thenewlollipopjam! Black certainly has a lot to offer. Let me know once you have a version up. Would like to have a look at it :).
I went for white because I really wanted access to Smothering Tithe and Anointed Procession . In Jeskai you could also make this deck more high-powered. For example through Intuition and Sevinne's Reclamation you can get any 2 combo pieces you want. I kept the deck a bit janky on purpose to not scare my playgroup too much (it's already a bit too competitive I'm afraid ;)...).
Thanks for dropping by!
