Hi! First of all, I like the concept of the deck, it seems pretty cool. However at first sight I can see two issues that you might have with this deck. The first is that you have way too much land! Having 47 lands in a Commander deck is a ton, even with a 8-drop Commander, specially considering that you have quite some ramp.

That takes me to the second issue. You barely have any removal. I would cut about 10 lands and add more removal such as Hero's Downfall , Malicious Affliction , Go for the Throat or Doom Blade . Maybe even some board wipes, Black Sun's Zenith is a pretty cool and mosty unexpensive in black! Finally, you could add some counterspells if that's your jam, if only to protect yourself. Swan Song and Pact of Negation are specially useful in commander. Oh! Also Throne of the God-Pharaoh doesn't seem that useful, in that, you don't have too many creatures, and almost any of them have tap abilities.

As a final note, I like a lot this type of deck, and yours doesn't seem that bad (in spite of the length of my comment haha). Have fun brewing! :D

Reckless Spite and Curtains' Call are almost strictly better than Ashes to Ashes by virtue of instant speed. Malicious Affliction is pretty great as well

Ripwater Thanks for suggestion. I had actually been looking at cutting Malicious Affliction for awhile. I just didn't know what for. The down side to Ashes to Ashes is that it's a sorcery and not an instant, but being able to exile two nonartifact creatures for and five life seems really good! Thanks for the suggestion.

Found another card that you might be interested in (depending if there is a lot of recursion in your meta). Ashes to Ashes maybe instead of Malicious Affliction one mana extra to exile 2 creatures wich are not artifacts :)

This looks like a pretty cool deck. I just have one suggestion. I hate seeing Murder in EDH decks, just because there's so many better options! I would say Malicious Affliction is strictly better than it, one colorless less to pay, and the potential upside of being a 2-for-1

But beyond that, I like it a lot! It makes me want to brew arround Lazav, Dimir Mastermind ! :D

Hey Skooma_Puma! Thanks for the comment! I'm definitely planning on playtesting both of those cards soon. Crypt Incursion in particular seems excellent, since I pay so much life for card draw, it's nice to have a few ways of regaining that life quickly. Snuff Out is a card that I've always been on the fence about, since it's another card that can't hit black creatures, along with Slaughter Pact , Doom Blade , and Malicious Affliction , all of which I'm currently running. I'm planning to test it in place of Terror , since SO is actually less restrictive than Terror, but I definitely don't want too many cards that can't target one of the more popular colors in commander. :)

Mausoleum Secrets is great. You can easily get a bunch of creatures in your graveyard for this spell because they come back anyway. Desecrated Tomb works well with your commander. Deathgreeter likes it when things die.

Bone Shredder kills himself off with echo while continuously killing off other creatures. Eliminate the Competition and Malicious Affliction also give you more kill spells.

And why not? You can use Meekstone , too.
