When Phyrexian Rager enters the battlefield, you draw a card and you lose 1 life.

Great feedback everybody. I play on arena. I'm gonna see if these cards are available. Thank you everybody. Of all the suggestions you guys have made, since I'm on arena, the only ones I found are Phyrexian Rager, Blood Fountain and Changeling Outcast

I actually think you want some cheaper removal all around. I havent played Pauper in 5 years but back then the common decks were Aggro, Hexproof (boggles? Basically hexproof with enchantments), MBC, Mono blue control and others.

Hey! I love this deck. A few suggestions:
Runo Stromkirk Flip is a bit of a nonbo with Umbris, Fear Manifest, as he isn't a horror when he ETBs and doesn't exile when he transforms. Thus, he's won't ETB as a horror to get that sweet sweet value. He also doesn't really synergize with the horror tribal theme. Likewise, the Shapeshifters in the deck like Evil Twin don't synergize, as they're not horrors and don't have changeling. Dauthi Voidwalker runs into the same issue, but it is pretty good so I wouldn't cut it.
A funny card in the deck would be Chainer, Dementia Master. He creates nightmares from your opponent's yard, which then exile more cards with your commander. However, he does come with the drawback of exiling all Nightmares when he dies. He's still totally worth it, though. Angel of Suffering do be silly. She might not be the best, but she's just kinda funny in the deck. The same goes for Bitter Ordeal, which, like all cards from Future Sight, is just kinda nifty. Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver ain't a bad card in this context, nor is Ashiok, Sculptor of Fears. Nightmare weaver is better, but both are pretty good in this context. Ashiok, Dream Render is pretty deece as both a Stranglehold and a exile-based mill engine, and she also completes AshiokTron (tm). To compleat the "Not good, just funny" cycle, Chainer's Torment. Is it an absolutely awful card? Yes. Is it hilarious? YES. Phyrexian Rager is pretty nice as well.
I hope that you find these suggestions helpful!

I too enjoy the restricted card pool of pauper.
Yavimaya Elder one of the best cards in the format.

Definitely a fun commander to build around, I like the passively consistent role she plays out on the battlefield, no matter what happens, even in top deck mode, as long as she's out there, your opponents are losing bit by bit by bit each turn. My own build of her was for pEDH, so walls, fogs, and draw spells with a touch of extort, just keep her alive and keep draining everyone.

Hey, good start. To help with deck building add 36 lands, even just basic Swamps to start, to see how many deck spots you have left to fill? How about the name Infectious Invasion?
Other areas to help improve gameplay are more ramp sources and more draw sources. Sheoldred is 7 mana you'll want ramp to consistently cast her as well as cast many high mana cost infect creatures. Dark Ritual, Defiler of Flesh and Culling the Weak are good, but consider more?
- Sol Ring
- K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth
- Crypt Ghast
- Bubbling Muck
- Arcane Signet
- Plague Myr
- Bontu's Monument
- Braids, Arisen Nightmare
- Phyrexian Arena or Underworld Connections
- Morbid Opportunist: with Sheoldred it triggers to draw on each player's upkeep if that player has a creature to sac.
- Thorn of the Black Rose: the monarch is draw a card at your end step.
- Night's Whisper
- Sign in Blood
- Read the Bones
- Deadly Dispute
Infect gives poison counters to players when any type of damage is done by the creature with infect, not just combat damage. Vindictive Vampire when it has infect gives each opponent a poison counter when a creature you control dies.
Good luck with your deck.

Are the praetors compleated versions of humans/humanoids, original creations made by Phyrexians or Phyrexia itself, or something else? Where did the praetors come from?
Elesh Norn is roughly human, give or take a gigantic head crest. Likely of humanoid origin.
Jin-Gitaxias has the basic head, torso, two arms, two legs, but that's as human as he gets. Pure Phyrexian?
Urabrask is quadrupedal, but all I get from the card art is a big, muscular, metal-plated thing with a long whippy tail. Maybe a completed beast of some sort? Does another card have a better view? The Planeswalker's Guide to New Phyrexia art implies some measure of bipedalness.
Vorinclex is my most complete theory, and therefore most likely to be way off base. I think Vorinclex is a completed Fangren of some type (Firstborn, Hunter, Marauder, Pathcutter). The head is similar enough, although Vorinclex's crest is hugely exaggerated and fused with the shoulder plates. With the limbs partially skeletonized and reinforced, and additional body mass including a secondary set of arms, I think a Fangren could be twisted into Vorinclex relatively easily.
