Null Brooch Discussion

If you run into a lot of wipes, Null Brooch can counter one per turn.

Good point The_Acid_Drip, I've run into that problem before. But luckily it's usually a destroy/-X/sac spell I run into, or I can sometimes sac him in response with Soldevi Adnate so I can reanimate him again. I've also put Tawnos's Coffin on my consideration list for exactly that reason - but I'll definitely try out Null Brooch and see if it can save Volraths ass in those situations. Thanks!

As someone else mentioned Null Brooch seems like a critical card. Odds are someone will try to kill Volrath after you pump him which likely means you have an empty hand.
Worst case, you just pitch your hand to the broach and just cycle the cards back into hand using Phyrexian Reclamation.
Since you can't run Lightning Greaves or the like you need something else to protect your volrath from being exiled by path or swords, as eventually the commander tax will put him off the table for good...

You might enjoy Null Profusion for extra card draw and free discard, as well as Null Brooch (I'm on a null kick I guess). Null Brooch can protect your Living Death cast or get you a whole-hand discard for some spike damage with Glint-Horn Buccaneer and similar effects. I also like Null Brooch because it's spicy - I've yet to see it in any other deck.

I'm kind of confused what you're trying to do with the deck. I get that you've used used Dominus - Dreamcrusher Edition as a basis for the deck, however there are a lot of cards that don't really make sense here. For example, you've added Dark Confidant and Ad Nauseam but then have filled ther deck with really high cost cards like Recycle, Null Profusion and Expropriate. You also have Jace, Wielder of Mysteries despite not running Tainted Pact or Demonic Consultation.
Also, Null Brooch is a really bad counterspell. Discarding your entire hand to counter a spell every time is not a good move, especially when you have lots of very mana intensive cards (i.e. it's slow to play them all). Brooch is much better in decks that constantly want to have little to no cards in hand. I understand that Damia can refill your hand, but it seems like a bad trade-off. Forbid or even Spell Burst would give similar functionality with more control (though all three aren't great).
