Does it count if I lost in a glorious way?
I played my Rankle, Master of Pranks deck, on turn 6 I played a Gray Merchant of Asphodel that drained each opponent for 14 (I had quite a few permanents ramped out with Crypt Ghast and Nirkana Revenant on turn 3 and 4). It was a 5-player game, I extorted a bit, so I was at a comfortable 104 life. I swing in with Rankle, and put the trigger on the stack, choosing all modes. Then it happened.
The Phenax, God of Deception player used a dork to mill himself for 5, putting Tree of Perdition in the graveyard. He then activated the ability on his Lazav, the Multifarious in play to become a copy of the Tree. He tapped the Lazav to switch its toughness with my life total. Then he activated his Thousand-Year Elixir to untap it, then tapped it again with Phenax's ability, to mill me for 104. With the all-modes Rankle trigger... Still... On the stack...

@MrKillStar: Thanks for your good ideas. Burnished Hart, Feed the Swarm and Phyrexian Altar are included in this Update. I will include Thornbite Staff, Altar's Reap, Village Rites and Sol Ring in my next Update. The combo around Grave Titan and Ashnod's Altar is nice but I want to focus on the Shades. Therefore I won't include it in the Deck. Furthermore I will include Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, Cabal Stronghold and Witch's Cottage in the Future.

Yay for Faerie Decks! For an Oona deck, this seems a bit short on lands. To run smooth and consistent, I'd put in at least seven more. The Urborg + Cabal Coffers/Stronghold lands work well with the queen's mana demands. Oona is very mana-demanding, so you may also want to consider some of the black mana doublers, like Nirkana Revenant or Crypt Ghast. (Extort is a keyword ability not a color identifier, so Oona can use the ghast!)
Also, if you haven't looked at it, the Oblivion Sower is one of my favorite cards in my Oona deck, because it just synergizes so well with her.

Bloodghast, Champion of Dusk, Chancellor of the Dross, Dark Impostor, Defiant Bloodlord, Guul Draz Overseer, Knight of the Ebon Legion, Mirri the Cursed, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Necropolis Regent, Nirkana Revenant, Twilight Prophet, Dusk Legion Zealot, Savage Gorger, Thirsting Bloodlord, Vampire of the Dire Moon, and Vampire Outcasts would all be decent additions to the deck. Wraths and tutors would also be good.

Oh for sure run Necro over Bob, and Visitor as well, but more pieces are good, Mindblade Render is great too, however the weird big mana thing is my largest issue with the deck.
Umbral Mantle, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, Torment of Hailfire, Exsanguinate, Bubbling Muck, etc. All are destroyed by cheap removal and interaction. A ton of other random cards in the deck feel weak or just low value, and I believe could be swapped for nearly directly better cards, and the deck could have almost strictly better wincons.
Yes I do like the amazing Tinybones backup plan, but mana dumping isn't necessary, and could just work given the stacy peices and the time they give without all the fluff that makes mulligans and opening hands much worse.
I think this list shows a lot of potential, but isn't tuned for the current metagame, if that makes sense. I'll write up a list of changes and maybe will post it later on!
