Unspeakable Symbol Discussion

Glad someone took notice of this guy, seems decent on paper! Vampiric Tutor or even Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire might be decent in a deck that wants to attack and manipulate the top deck. Varragoth opens up some sneaky plays with Opposition Agent, where you can simply exile a combo piece from an opponent's deck by targeting them with boast ability. Maze of Ith would also allow you to negate your varragoth attack keeping him safe. Maybe not cEDH viable but New Blood and Blood Tribute both have kicker costs that can use your commanders vampire ability. Also thinking of Deflecting Swat and Deadly Rollick. And theres always Hatred or Unspeakable Symbol even Vial Smasher the Fierce

If you're looking for more spikey sorts of plays, Unspeakable Symbol is a card that pairs really well with your lifegain! Can make your commander a huge threat early on!

Hey, nice casual budget version, but are undying creatures other than Mikaeus and Flayer really worth it?
Consider more enablers to get +1/+1 counters on your creatures?
If you're going for an attacking strategy then consider a few more fliers that have some added value when they die or when they ETB?
You have several high CMC creatures here, more reanimation and enablers could help.
Olivia, Mobilized for War is a +1/+1 counter enabler and an enabler for reanimation.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Essence Backlash
- Kumena's Awakening
- Abnormal Endurance
- Pharika's Libation
- Butcher Ghoul
- Invisible Stalker
- Taurean Mauler
- Demonlord of Ashmouth
- Hound of Griselbrand
- Mer-Ek Nightblade
- Falkenrath Marauders
- Silumgar, the Drifting Death
- Blood Tyrant
- Sphinx of Magosi
Good luck with your deck.

Unspeakable Symbol is one of the go-to cards for Marchesa.

Sage of Fables, Metallic Mimic, Unspeakable Symbol, and Vigean Graftmage all come down before Marchesa and ensure she enters with a counter. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed doesn't protect Marchesa but is still worth its weight in gold here.

To some extent Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a bit counterproductive and can be difficult to use in the deck. The effect causes a rather large up swing in life for you (at a minimum +9 life and -3 to everyone else), which will almost always mean you no longer can trigger Dethrone reliably. Being able to more strategically gain life via things like Basilisk Collar or Shadowspear is more useful since we want to only be ahead on life after attacking, ideally.
The mass life drain on Gary can be useful, but it's hard to repeatedly trigger it unless you have something like Spark Double or Unspeakable Symbol in play to pair with Gary so that the life gain doesn't make it impossible to get counters on him.
So overall Gary is ok, but for 5 mana its a few too many hoops to jump through in my mind if you want to get repeated, consistent value

I think that Unspeakable Symbol is a very interesting card, so I wished to make a variant of it, using Phyrexian mana, as I am very fond of that mechanic, and the results of my work are below.
Ineffable Glyph Show
: put a +1/+1 counter on target creature.
The name of this card is an obvious reference to the symbol of Phyrexia, which I image its follower regard as a symbol of utmost importance. Because this card has a more versatile cost, I increased its overall mana cost. What do you think of it?
