Soul Shatter

Instant

Each opponent sacrifices a creature or planeswalker with the highest converted mana cost among creatures and planeswalkers they control.

Yeah, I suppose that was a rude way to say that, I apologize.

Once this deck is streamlined, you'll have more than enough token generation to slot Diabolic Intent, especially considering that one of your main combos is Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter. Sacrificing a token so that you can make infinite tokens is worth it.

Also, the utility offered by Black Market Connections here is insane. If you don't want to throw a bunch of life into it once it's served it's purpose you can just pay 1 for a treasure, which is fantastic. The tokens it generates are Changelings as well, which matters a lot if we're talking about quickly getting to the 9. Never be afraid to use your life as a resource, especially in color combos including . You're kicking yourself by doing so! The more powerful and dialed in your decklist is, the more powerful your life will be as a resource, I cannot overstate this.

If you don't want to police the table for fun's sake...that's awesome lol, you're probably super fun to play with! In that case, I'd add more cantrip effects for yourself like Ponder, Brainstorm, Serum Visions, Opt...There's a ton. Windfall, Tolarian Winds, Sign in Blood & Night's Whisper would do great in this new hypothetical card draw pack, too.

As far as what I'd cut to make room for more core strength, here it goes:

Teferi's Veil, Levitation, Cover of Darkness, Glamdring, Maskwood Nexus, Uncovered Clues, Pieces of the Puzzle, Worn Powerstone, Metallurgic Summonings, Quantum Misalignment, Decoy Gambit & Soul Shatter.

None of these are bad cards per se, I definitely understand why you slotted most of them, but if you replace them with some of the cards I mentioned your deck engine will run a lot smoother a lot more often.

SteelSentry on Why Do Recent Sacrifice Effects …

I think it's probably my favorite "super edict" variant they've used so far, actually. Soul Shatter and it's ilk have always been a feel bad when I get hit with them, it's like getting your True-Name Nemesis getting Council's Judgmented in legacy of yesteryear. It's not like they've moved away from printing traditional sacrifice effects, but watching Standard and hearing someone say "I can get a Portal to Phyrexia here, but it doesn't even do anything on this board" makes me appreciate 'sacrifice a good creature' effects.

If your budget allows, consider those swaps:

If you're willing to streamline your creatures to be all Samurai, these are some good picks:

Also, Mythos of Snapdax and Cleansing Nova stumble on your many artifacts. Consider those swaps:

Edicts! Mass Edicts! Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Demon's Disciple, Plaguecrafter & Gravelighter are all nuts in this build. I wouldn't recommend ones that cost more than 3, though. Soul Shatter, Vona's Hunger, Liliana's Triumph & Sheoldred's Edict do the same thing at Instant speed, with the tradeoff being less Counters on Kresh the Bloodbraided, as those are not Creature Spells.

Those cheap, 3-drop Elemental stompers are solid as well, like Ball Lightning & Lightning Skelemental.

I'd also recommend literally as many Dorks as possible, as they also pump Kresh when they die, they're utility at both the floor and the ceiling of your deck is undeniable.

Pestilence & Pyrohemia are also worth it for this Commander for the same reason mass Edicts are worth it: controlling the board and pumping your Commander at the same time is just a great thing to do.

More card draw couldn't hurt either, maybe a Beast Whisperer & a Dark Tutelage or something.

Cheers!

We're running Diabolic Tutor for budget? i'm questioning vona's hungar, that could be Soul Shatter. Between revel in riches and undercity scrounger, one should go because we are so dependant on death triggers, what if our stuff is just going to exile? How do we solve that problem? scour from existance is 7 mana, good luck with that, OF COURSE you need Feed the Swarm they just draw 9 cards off Rhystic Study

If you're on a strict budget consider Mishra's Research Desk, Sandstone Oracle and Disciples of Gix.
I'd switch one of the single target kill spells for Soul Shatter because it usually hits 3 relevant creatures instead of just 1.
I'd also switch some basics for Rakdos Carnarium, Tainted Peak and Shadowblood Ridge.
You could really make use of some of the new cards from the black Warhammer 40k precon like Necron Deathmark or Illuminor Szeras
