Human is all over the place too and if you do human (or cleric) you can also do Shadowborn Apostle's

SteelSentry the cards of this sort (that you’re allowed to have a larger number of than normal in your deck) generally trend high in price. Shadowborn Apostle and Relentless Rats being the two that first come to mind... I wish you luck on getting some wraiths!

Profet93 well as far as Skullcamp I certainly don't have a reason not to include it. I just tend not to think of it outside of decks where it is much more abuseable lol. Though come to think of it... Probably going to be better in here than I give it credit for. Even if it only draws 2 that's still good. Just hard not to compare it to a Shadowborn Apostle deck.

Mindslaver would be a fun pickup, probably go into my 'extras' pile. Cards that sometimes slot in and then after folks seem irritated slot out for awhile. To return at a later date. Got to manage the salt somehow. I haven't actually had Emrakul in play more than, I think, 4 times. So turn theft is still a little bit of an unknown. And she's pretty forgiving by granting an extra turn.

I didn't feel like there was much point in Warping Wail when my commander countered most everything that needed countering but with a possible switch to Liberator it would be a nice inclusion. Plus the other modes... I don't think I gave that exile effect the credit it deserves. I don't recall the video off the top of my head but it was about the small creatures commander players often use as the "backbone" of their decks. Really looking at them some are quite threatening when left alone...

Thanks again for all the suggestions! There's so many neat colorless cards anymore I could build multiple decks lol.

Oh that Wurmcoil combo does indeed work! Well it requires another thing sacrificed to start it off but once started it goes round and round with just those three pieces. Infinite tokens and/or mana. It's quite funny when folks see a colorless deck go off for the first time. With Liberator I might lean more towards the token direction again. So there's Myr Battlesphere to fit a similar role.

I did think about Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim after he was shown during the Dominaria United previews. The challenge is finding a place for him in the 99. Syr Konrad, the Grim and Zulaport Cutthroat synergize with the Aristocrat theme of this build better than Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim. I sense replacing a Shadowborn Apostle may not be feasible, as 28 seems like the line in the sand, just as the 36-land land base. Although it receives benefits from it, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled's presence does not contribute to the Apostle engine. Is there another card you see as replaceable for Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim?

Ambiorix69 your playgroup is misinformed. You may have any number of Shadowborn Apostles in your deck, as the card text overrides the rules of the format just as it would for Modern or Legacy, or any other format. There are entire decks built around Relentless Rats in Commander :)

In my end phase, during my cleanup step and after having discarded to reduce to my allowed hand size, do I get priority again to activate No Rest for the Wicked? Say I use Secret Salvage to fetch all my Shadowborn Apostles and then discard them, can I get them back to hand?

Very cool deck idea. My main concern is that there just doesn’t appear to be enough Shadowborn Apostle do pull-off a lot of the plans reliably. I feel like i’d drop some number of Echoing Return and/or Thoughtseize to try and gets to at least 20 Apostles, if not more. Maybe going down to just 3 Secret Salvage will help also - its a lot if mana and you’re unlikely to ever want to draw/play more than 1 in a game

Haha I love this so much! I would hate to play against this. Honestly atm I don't have any suggestions, but I might build something similar, but proxy the crazy amount of Shadowborn Apostles.
