zapyourtumor yes I did run Royal Assassin for a long time. However it needed a turn to actually start doing things and it became too slow and was then cycled out of the deck. Thanks for the suggestion though. I have seen a lot of suggestions to get rid of Ultimate Price . If I played at a more consistent competitive level 100% I would drop it. However it has been surprisingly effective in this deck. For now it will stay until I find the need to replace it. Thanks for the suggestions!

Definitely need some Inquisition of Kozilek to round out the Thoughtseize for your discard suite (I recommend a full playset).

4 Ultimate Price is a mistake. There are better removal options in GB colors (like Victim of Night , Go for the Throat ).

Have you considered running the OG assassin, Royal Assassin ?

Some thoughts:

  • 17 lands is crazy low for pretty much any deck. Burn runs ~18 usually, and most their deck is 1cmc. Having any 3 or 4 drops your wanting to realistically cast should put you at 22 lands minimum. Keep in mind a bunch of your cards are fairly mana hungry even after they’re down, with morph and/or level-up costs.

  • Ultimate Price feels like a bad card, when you could be running more copies of Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy . Nameless Inversion also seems bad, but I do get why you’re running that (i just don’t think the payoff is worth it).

  • I don’t see any practical reason for you to be running Corpse Churn . You don’t really fill the yard much and you’re creatures aren’t really worth reviving.

  • Duress is a really concerning card for hand disruption, because it can just auto-suck in a lot of matchups. I’d be tempted to leave it just in the sideboard, if your budget can’t afford the better hand disruption cards.

  • imo, ditch Sign in Blood . It costs you a turn and oftentimes will make your board position worse, not better.

Idk who this Willy is, but no you.

This deck is a really a mono black build that you happen to run blue for Diregraf Captain . The way I see it you can either keep with the build you're going for, which to me seems like mono black, or you can go a much different dimir amass path with cards like Vizier of the Scorpion , Gleaming Overseer , Lazotep Plating ,

Let's assume you do mono black, then let's start with creatures. Brain Gorgers and Stromgald Crusader are garbage, Tomebound Lich is mostly used in dedicated reanimator decks, and Extremely Slow Zombie is a card from a joke set, so take those all out, along with Diregraf Captain . That's 11 out. Add 2 Murderous Rider , 3 Liliana's Reaver , 2 Undead Augur , 3 Diregraf Ghoul .

For noncreature spells, take out Negate . The best mono black removal is probably Walk the Plank . So take out Go for the Throat and Ultimate Price for 3. Gravepurge and Return from Extinction can be replaced with 3 Call of the Death-Dweller . Take out Bontu's Monument for another copy of Liliana, Untouched By Death or vise-versa. Take out Necromancer's Stockpile , I just don't think it's that good. For a five drop $1-2 slot, Open the Graves is better than Call to the Grave .

If you followed all that you should have 6 slots left. Add one more Swamp so you're at 22. Then maybe 3 Dread Wanderer , 2 Fleshbag Marauder , and flex card like Risen Executioner or something fun.

I'm going to go ahead and start on ramp here, you have only a couple pieces of pretty bad ramp.

So I really recommend picking up Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Elves of Deep Shadow , Fyndhorn Elves , Wild Growth , Rakdos Signet , Golgari Signet and Gruul Signet . Those are all really good because they can come down early, they get you more mana to play Mario and Luigi earlier, they can help you play your bigger cards earlier, and they can be sacrificed to the brothers.

If you want to find room, Cultivate , Harrow , Kodama's Reach , Rampant Growth , and Boundless Realms are all really really good, but not quite as necessary here as they can't be sacrificed to the brothers.

A couple other random suggestions that work great here are Solemn Simulacrum , Erebos, Bleak-Hearted , and Burnished Hart .

The player with the most mana is often the player in the best position in EDH, so mana ramp is important.

You also want some good interaction, which isn't quite as relevant with the brothers but it's still very important. Rakdos Charm , Terminate , Abrade , Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy (which are a bit pricier), Doom Blade effects such as Cast Down , Ultimate Price , Go for the Throat and Heartless Act , Lightning Bolt , Nature's Claim are all pretty solid ones. The purpose is just to be able to stop someone from killing you, remember not to be aggressive and kill things without reason.

Casualties of War is pretty cool too, I just like the card.

Ultimate Price was never printed common. Sanitarium Skeleton with some sac outlets seems too good not to run.

Some controlly card suggestions: Sultai Charm (noice and versatile, plus it fits flavor), Miscast, Putrefy, Windgrace's Judgment, Force of Despair, Silumgar's Command (how could you not have this bad boy??), Ultimate Price (fits theme but not quite as good in edh)
