I know you have a ton of decks, but arcane signet and commanders sphere likely belong in every deck.
36 lands/4 mana rocks seems too high. General rule for me is 35 lands - 1 for every 2-3 mana rocks. This deck also has a low cmc and generates treasures so it seems like you are ~3 lands too high. I would start cutting the 5 color lands and if you bump your cmc up at all, consider adding signets for minimal ramp at the cost of a lands at a 1/3 ratio.
Castle Locthwain - low oppurtunity cost for high value. your deck is half black and this can get you back into a game where you run low on resources
Yawgmoth is a heavy combo card, I dont see a combo for him, he would likely be better in anafenza where you can combo with persist creatures and bolster and all that. the proliferate is powerful, but checkout the options under infect.
Brazen Freebooter Captain Lannery Storm Corsair Captain Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer Prosperous Pirates Rapacious Dragon Sailor of Means - you already have enough draft chaff in the random infect creatures, revel in riches win is accomplished with a single board clear, or ~2 turns of attacking, they are not required for revel in riches.
If you wanna go revel in riches
Phyrexian Tower - sac outlet and fast mana. see also Westvale Abbey Flip
Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch/Anger - lets you attack after a board clear
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - this may be in another deck for flavor reasons, but basically makes all non humans immortal
Last One Standing - This basically a better damnation in rackdos. This should replace bontus last reckoning or just be an
additional board clear if you wanna go reanimator with mikaeus, hell even Nevinyrral's Disk is better than bontus
Phyrexian Scriptures ^ all those reasons, mild shoutout to Chain Reaction Blasphemous Act Spell Swindle/Storm the Vault Flip/Brass's Bounty any of these will replace all of the draft chaff and free up some card slots
Curse of Opulence - ramps and duh
Hellkite Tyrant - likely in another deck, but consider it
If you wanna go infect
Karn's Bastion - proliferate the counters and infect counters
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Filth - another way to get unblockable. Wonder/Levitation also make blocking hard
Tainted Strike - the best thing about this card, is the fact you can cast it on your opponents creatures. This also combos well with reach creatures like Judith, the Scourge Diva/Syr Konrad, the Grim allowing you to kill your opponents w/o attacking. Does not apply to Blood Artist because life lose does not deal infect damage.
Move Drana, Liberator of Malakir to the mainboard, shes too synergistic to leave behind
Warstorm Surge - deal infect damage without attacking Stalking Vengeance is a worse version
Sword of Truth and Justice - prolly the best sword for this deck.
Bident of Thassa//Coastal Piracy - unblockable means free cards
Open Into Wonder/Mogis's Marauder - moar unblockable
Guildmages' Forum - synergy land
planeswalkers go up a ton with proliferate, Chandra, Flamecaller is a board clear, filter and damage engine. you will pretty much be able to ult Dack Fayden the turn you cast him. Liliana, Dreadhorde General looks amazing in this deck. ulting Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for the win? just lul
Geode Golem - consider him if you think you need marchesa for the deck to work
Cyclonic Rift - likely in another deck, but another way to go unblockable River's Rebuke/Profaner of the Dead budget options
the vivid lands work with proliferate
Vigean Graftmage - may be better in your twiddle deck, but you can do a number of infinite combos with this card if you wanna go that direction. not very recommended with your current build

I don't think it will happen. Wotc has been printing newer not as strong variants to compensate for the reserved list. Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip in place of Gaea's Cradle, Storm the Vault Flip>Tolarian Academy etc...

Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip and Storm the Vault Flip are both very strong with their initial abilities and then flip for essentially a Gaea's Cradle or Tolarian Academy. Both seem crazy strong for this type of format idea.

Not sure if Summoning Station would be of interest to you? Also there's things like Vermiculos and Glassdust Hulk that build up on artifact etb... Storm the Vault Flip if you have X spells. Kinda all over the place color wise but nothing's decided yet so never know.

This looks pretty interesting to me, and I think it would be hard for me to suggest much until I saw it played. However, with Zirda as your companion, you wouldn't be able to use Storm the Vault Flip since it doesn't have an activated ability itself. Here's the relevant rule for that:
711.4a. While a double-faced card is outside the game, in a zone other than the battlefield, or on the battlefield with its front face up, it has only the characteristics of its front face.
Other than that, it looks intriguing and I'd be curious to see the board develop.

koylucumert, while there are similarities between Companion cards and a Commanders, they are not the same mechanics, and comparing them can be tricky.
Color identity is determined before the game starts. In other words, the color identity of a card is an indelible trait of that card. This is why a Pious Evangel Flip is always a color-identity card, even outside the current game.
On the other hand, the Companion mechanic doesn't "check" the characteristics of a card until after you have decided what cards will make up your library. By this point, Storm the Vault Flip has the characteristics of only its front face.
This is an understandably confusing interaction (or lack thereof), but the key difference is when we are determining the traits of a card. Does that make things a little clearer?

Tylord2894 in that sense yes but isnt this a deckbuilding restriction like commander itself defines the color identity? commander color identity rule does check the back of the card and in theory the physical card Storm the Vault Flip has activated abilities.

You can not have cards like Storm the Vault Flip in a deck where Zirda is your companion. A double-faced card only has the characteristics of the front face unless it is on the battlefield and transformed. The official rule for this is below in case you're curious.
711.4a While a double-faced card is outside the game, in a zone other than the battlefield, or on the battlefield with its front face up, it has only the characteristics of its front face.
Hope this helps!!
