@RyProv, Thanks for the suggestions! I think I might go with Thornbite Staff and especially Avatar of Woe. Kaervek the Merciless is mean, no doubt, but I'll probably leave him and Revel in Riches out for now, because they don't really fit the theme as much. But if mana ramp seems to be an issue, I might reconsider Revel. And yes, deck finessing definitely is a slippery slope!

For myself and others, how to optimally pilot the deck
Philosophy behind the deck, ideally should be played with 2+ other players.
You are a hard to kill end game boss, blue is boring busted and broken and is also expensive. Try to go for cards that will keep your hand healthy since we are not running blue so think how much you can squeeze out of one card for maximum value.
while Triskelion will want cards like Defense of the Heart , Tooth and Nail with the added 2 colorless for entwine (if it's already in hand just pick a different creature and still summon the creatures you want in hand.)
Shifting Shadow will still work even if you are trying to destroy an indestructible creature during upkeep reveal the next creature while still keeping the previous one. Can be easily retrieved if no graveyard hate.
Sun Titan can even get a land into play
Chromatic Lantern can negate damage lands and lands with downside and can make useless lands useful.
Birthing Pod you can sacrifice zero cmc token creatures for a one drop ect.

Tsabo Tavoc was my first commander too! So many good memories with her. To help with the high mana cost Revel in Riches could be fun and also offer an alternate win con. In addition Thornbite Staff wrecks with assassins. Avatar of Woe is a beast of an assassin too.
Another creature that makes everyone hate you more (also isn't a bad commander) is Kaervek the Merciless.
But alas, commander deck finessing is a slippery slope that never ends.

Version 1, specific:
Whenever a player draws a card, each other player gets a Treasure token.
At the beginning of each upkeep, that player loses life equal to the number of Treasures they control.
It's a temptation more than actual penalty, per se. It's also a
Version 2, generic:
a la Limited Resources
When Limited Resources enters the battlefield, chooses five other enchantments and exile each other enchantment not chosen this way.
As long as there are at least five enchantments on the battlefield, whenever an enchantment enters the battlefield under a player's control, that player exiles their hand.
It's not as oppressive as Limited Resources, but still hella cruel.
I'd like a vehicle.

zin1000: It absolutely is. I already included Fleshbag Marauder and Plaguecrafter, but I have no Merciless Executioner. If I find one, I'll absolutely add it in. Because of the synergy of this kind of ability with Revel in Riches, the Reaper might still stay in even then as a fourth copy of the ability.

It is a go big or go home mechanic, after all.
Making a concise response Show
1/ You can counter it by destroying either the creatures. Blue can bounce the treasure tokens. In fact, bouncing the tokens would be very good - since every permanent with affiliate increase the win condition counter, while every treasure token decreases. If you bounce the token that was created by a creature, that net minus 2 for the opponent. Moving the token creation to cast was maybe a mistake, but still not really that bad. Whirlwind Denial for example.
2/ Board complexity is not that much more than city's blessing for Rivals of Ixalan. You have to count only two types of permanents - gold tokens and permanents with the Affiliate ability.
3/ This is only one mechanic of a supposed set, any other mechanics can interact with it to counterbalance.
4/ You have highlighted the natural tension in the mechanic well. I view it as similar to the outlast mechanic, where you have a tough choice, because the ability is sorcery speed. Additionally, all the cards highlighted give a benefit to the opponents as well, making it a hyper tension-filled.
5/Wotc always prints at least 1 you win the game card per set. Throne has Happily Ever After, WAR has Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Simic Ascendancy in RNA, Revel in Riches, the base for this mechanic, was in Ixalan. They do not have an extra wincon mechanic being part of the set, yet.
6/ It is indeed, while I do not think this is good enough to see print, I think that WOTC will eventually make such a mechanic. However, there is infect already printed, so...
7/ Yeah, but Ixalan treasures did not break the color pie in half. They were minor additions to weaker cards to buff them. I am making a stronger, yet similar mechanic, and balancing it on more symmetrical effects and ability to use the resources to ramp instead of win.
In essence, I like to be as bold as possible with my mechanics. Pushing the envelope does not work always and I should be a bit more based in my designs, but hey. This is a mechanic for specific demographic of Magic players, which does not start with the letter J or S.
I found this a very hard word to design for. It is evident from the rough design, but I stand by it. I had two other fully fleshed designs that I scrapped prior to this.
I am also not admitting this mechanic was an excuse to make another Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer card.

Experience only goes so far when we take in the diversity of playgroups and LGS players. What seems foolish or silly to one person could be paying off huge for someone else.
I did see Woe Strider as well as Syr Konrad, the Grim as possible cards. I opted out as Woe Strider is a EBT and the scry I could get from Warteye Witch. Syr Konrad, the Grim intrigued me but I couldn't get past his 5 cmc.
