Legendary Planeswalker — Liliana
Magecraft — Whenever you cast or copy an instant or sorcery spell, each opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life.
+1: You lose 1 life. Look at the top three cards of your library. Put one of them into your hand and the rest into your graveyard.
-3: Each opponent sacrifices a creature with the greatest power among creatures that player controls.
-8: Each opponent may discard a card. If they don't they lose 3 life. Repeat this process six more times.

Hey friends and degenerates - Trying to see if the Professor Onyx / Chain of Smog combo fits into a Dihada, Binder of Wills / Underworld Breach deck. Has anyone had experience brewing with this in that line? Thinking it might be good to have with Onakke Oathkeeper in the mix (get that in the grave to use it's ability to reanimate Professor Onyx if need be?)

also, here are some more cards I found that might be helpful for the deck: Volrath's Laboratory, Vanquisher's Banner, Blood for Bones, Mastermind's Acquisition, Epic Downfall, Professor Onyx, Conspiracy, Doom Blade, Ghastly Demise, Nezumi Graverobber Flip, and Crippling Fear

-More mana ramp
-For an instant/sorcery deck, there are too many cards that synergize with creatures
-Getting this deck to a really good point is going to take a lot of testing and thinking to figure out the balance of several details; off the top of my head, effects that make your tokens attack better (deal damage, stay alive, gain double strike, etc.), effects that put such cards into your graveyard, mana ramp to activate Magar's ability consistently, protection for Magar, and actual 'payoff' cards
Cards I would immediately drop:
-Professor Onyx- has decent synergy with her static ability and +1 but apart from that doesn't do much; it's also 6 mana in a list that already needs a lower curve
-Waste Not: an awesome card in general but you play almost no effects that make your opponents discard cards
-Lightning Bolt: iconic Magic card but I am on the side that believes it is straight up not good in Commander
-Temple of the False God: I don't play this card anymore; it's a dead draw until usually turn five or six and at that point, it does so little especially in a deck like this where you don't desperately need a mana source producing two colorless
-Ignite the Future: a decent card in a deck where you cast it from the graveyard but you will rarely do that here; Magar's ability does not make you cast it from your yard and it just does not have a good rate
-Bone Shards: I see why you're playing it here (its extra cost can easily be paid with a face-down instant/sorcery you're done with) but in this deck you do NOT want your face-down instants/sorceries dying because you can repeatedly cast them when they deal damage; there are so many better removal spells in red and black that do not require such an akward cost
Cards that Can be Replaced with Better Ones:
-Chainer, Nightmare Adept: the free, instant-speed discard ability is amazing, don't get me wrong, but the ability its activating does almost nothing for your deck; there are better (sometimes cheaper) free, instant-spped discard abilities like Zombie Infestation or Skirge Familiar
-Dark Ritual: I personally don't like Dark Ritual except in mono-black decks that really need it and here; it's an amazing card turns one through maybe four but after that, it is probably going to be a dead draw; a mana rock would be much better in its place
-Seething Song: same argument as Dark Ritual but this spell is best on a different range of turns
-Blood Money: this is a pretty cool card to get for free from Magar but I am not too sure how much benefit the tapped treasure give you; I am mainly saying this because I would run Blasphemous Act first but this is all pretty subjective

Dang, I didnt see this guy until today, he is made for this deck. Not sure what card to take out, so maybe just put him on the maybe list until it becomes more clear. Professor Onyx

My main thought on my Nath of the Gilt-Leaf deck is that it didn't capture the Sadistic Hypnotist combo. The power level, salt, and threats look right, and it captures Chain of Smog + Professor Onyx and Maralen of the Mornsong + Opposition Agent. It has a preference for hard locks and wincon combos. This isn't really wrong, especially when measuring salt levels, but it's something I noted.
The analysis of my Dromar and Xantcha lists look pretty much perfect. Good work!
One more for fun: Above such mortal concerns

Also, forgot to mention that Professor Onyx does the exact same thing as Witherbloom Apprentice so that's also a wincon lol.

Okay. So, I think you should really lean into the control/combo shell. This deck could use combos like Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, with some added redundancy in the forms of Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Marauding Blight-Priest, or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion to close out the game. In order to accomplish this, I think you should cut a ton of the creatures and really lean into board wipes, control spells, and resource denial.
You could also do cute stuff like Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity, giving yourself time to wipe the board again or go for the win with Peer into the Abyss. You should also consider taking a look at your mana base.
I'd suggest going for some fetches, checks, and shocks like:
I know I've given you a lot of suggestions. I think if you tried putting a list together with all the cards I named, plus some of the bangers from your current list and you'd have a badass deck! Don't worry about trying to do all that right now, though. See which look most appealing/are in your price range and add those first. A lot of these should be long term goals!
Don't tell Rett I gave you so many suggestions XD
