pescyn my man, thanks again for the comments! Spineless Thug is a piece of marvel!

Never forget Phyrexian Driver our tribal lord... >.<' Thank you WizardsoftheCoast, we couldn't have asked for more.

Regarding the deck price... wow, damn! When I made this, cards like Imp's Mischief were less than a buck each (gotta sell them asap!). I've got the deck on paper except for the lands Volrath's Stronghold which are not core at all. Urborg and Shizo can be easily cut too. The Nykthos are pretty usefull though.

I'll duplicate the deck into a budget version and remove the "budget" tag from here. Thanks for pointing it out Devil_Amigo

WolfishHat the "shroud from black" ability of Mercenary Informer doesn't apply while in the library, only when it's on the battlefield so yes, it can be fetched with Cateran Summons and brought back to life from the graveyard with Doomed Necromancer after being discarded by Mercenary Knight , without a single Orzhov land. Though it's kinda excessive for what it does, it can be done if it's worth for you, yeah.

NickRowePhagist I run Leyline of the Void in my deck for the artifacts. But people have started running Dauthi Voidwalker instead as its a body that exiles everything anyway and we can take the stuff ourselves. With Volrath's Stronghold we can continue to recur him and use him to get things we want out of the void bin.

As for Volrath's Stronghold, the only card that comes close is Unholy Grotto, which if you use a Zombie as your finisher could be just as good. Necrosavant could actually fit both requirements here as it has been errata'd to be a Zombie Giant

How vital are Deranged Hermit, Recurring Nightmare, and Volrath's Stronghold to the strategy? Is a budget build possible?

Thanks abby315!! Definitely need to pick up a few Dauthi Voidwalker soon! They are ridiculously good.

MrNoodlesworth, I am still debating whether to keep Planar Void. I need to test this latest version more. The recursion cards I’m running for now are Buried Ruin, Volrath's Stronghold, and Yawgmoth's Will, plus tutors to find those cards. I don’t think the deck needs much more than this. Wiping my own graveyard was something I learned to adapt to with Planar Void, but being able to bring back a card every now and then is a minor plus. It doesn’t make or break the deck. Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip still works as an alternative win-con on her own.

Thank you very much Nyrmak!!! I’m glad you like where the deck is going. I feel like it is definitely stronger now with these recent additions.

MrNoodlesworth, I forgot to mention that now Dauthi Voidwalker combos with Helm of Obedience along with Leyline of the Void . Now the Helm combo is twice as likely to pull off, and Voidwalker is easier to cast than Leyline.

I’m also experimenting with Volrath's Stronghold (since I am no longer running Planar Void or Relic of Progenitus and am running more creatures now), as well as the new Profane Tutor (which is slow due to suspend, but when cast during the early turns is very useful for setting up a combo or tutoring for removal). To make room I cut Night of Souls' Betrayal since I am running Tourach, Dread Cantor .

forneyt My budget for this deck is higher then I would usually spend because I want it to be able to play in cEDH games (it doesnt have to be a win all the time deck but good enough to sit at the table). However cards over $80-100 each are probably a get if I can thing but a hard sell to spend $ to the wife. As my play group goes, I dont have one. Covid destroyed it. We are just now starting to open back up here in Vegas so I have no idea what I will be walking into at my LGS.

I would love Mana Crypt but I just don't have one and I only have Mana Vault in there for a early commander ramp. The Charcoal Diamond bugs me because of the comes into play tapped and that seems to slow for cEDH.

Possessed Portal is a win con if it resolves. By the time I get that out they should have almost no resources in had if not already hellbent. With my commander out as well they cant even top deck and everything they sac goes to me. The 8 cmc can be rampped as well I can even shave it down to 6 and protect it with Dream Devourer . Vilis, Broker of Blood I just do not personally like. The cmc means I would need to animate him out and I rather do that on more important targets. The card draw I could get from running Necropotence at a much cheaper cmc (still up in the air about that one though). He seems like a large amount of resources to just get returned to hand or countered just like Sheoldred, Whispering One and I rreally like her.

I do like Waste Not probably find a place for it.

So you might have something there. I didnt want to run Chromatic Lantern because of the cmc. Everflowing Chalice I like because it starts at 2 and at any point of the game if I draw it I could put more into it if i had the mana to spare. The Blood Moon situation is problematic so I might just do that, maybe in place of Mana Vault if i decide to drop it all together.

Malakir Rebirth  Flip is there as mana with a side of protection for my commander. Volrath's Stronghold is a very nice card just to rich for my blood.

Yes the maybe board is stuff I am considering as well as stuff I have pulled out. I like Gary and still may run him after I get my first 100 settled and tested I will move it around.

Geth's Grimoire may be a possibility. However I dont like the idea of giving the other players more answers. I want the hellbent and top decking much sooner then later.

Living Death is a card I may cut, I am not sure yet. I like the idea of all their boards getting sacked and becoming my creatures and I also get my graveyard back. Death Cloud is a win con. Mindslicer is the same kind of thing (with a sac outlet) I get all their permanents. Without a sac outlet I can beat away or hold as blocks. That is why I like this commander so much, "your stuff is my stuff.. Thanks!"

Dark Depths only works with Thespian's Stage . Vesuva enters as a copy so would have the counters on him. Thespian is already in play when copied so no counters. Either way this seems too meme for me :-)

I did notice a big flaw that you pointed out .. I have no sac outlet so Miren, the Moaning Well High Market Phyrexian Tower any of those might be a good add. I like Deserted Temple but it is close to that to expensive area because I dont have one.

Thank you for taking the time to give some help and advice, I appreciate it.
