Capricopian würde ich wohl kicken
Illusory Ambusher ist mir zu teuer
Vorapede GGG, da gibts für 5cmc sicher schönere, oder?
Pollywog und Sea-dasher sind stark genug um sie zu spielen. Carddraw/Filter und Flash sind nicht zu unterschätzen mit Mutate

There're a few cards I think are cuttable. In EDH, you're often facing down three opponents (and 3x as many cards) -- so you need the most efficient cards possible. Consider cutting the least efficient cards you have. For the record, these are the ones I see as inefficient: Vorapede, Boneyard Mycodrax, Horn of Ramos (if you're considering symmetrical hate, like Collector Ouphe), Murder (which is only a 1-for-1 in a format where you start out facing 3x as many cards), Lifecraft Awakening...
I also realized I missed a suggestion. I feel like Murderous Rider is straight better than Ruinous Path; but again, you may want to consider many-for-ones like Ashes to Ashes, Smallpox, Innocent Blood... Just playtest and you'll see what's best for your deck. It's hard to make recommendations in abstractio.

Glad you like it! Unfortunately, Vorapede costs too much at five mana, especially when this deck really likes leaving up at least one mana for various spells.
Cards like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Geralf's Messenger, though very good, are pretty expencive to the deck as well. makes me wish there was another good undying creature and sac outlet at one or two mana. That would really put the deck over the top in my opinion.
Thanks for the comment!

this looks cool
I've always liked Vorapede, but is it too high cmc for this deck?

Hey, nice budget upgrades to the precon: Sea-Dasher, Reconnaissance, Brokkos, and Triome.
Elusive Tormentor Flip and Troll Ascetic are two budget creatures who you want to mutate with Otrimi. Tormentor for Insidious Mist when mutated with Otrimi makes a 6/6 hexproof, indestructible, unblockable, trample Beast. Discard a creature with mutate to flip Tormentor and recur that creature with Otrimi. The combination of hexproof and regenerate of Ascetic is powerful with mutate.
Hexproof is key and it's wanted because it protects the creature you're mutating to from targeted removal before it mutates and then after it protects the mutate pile so you can safely mutate again. Swiftfoot Boots can equip to any creature you control giving it hexproof.
( > = could replace)
- Elusive Tormentor Flip > Vorapede.
- Troll Ascetic > Vastwood Hydra.
- Swiftfoot Boots > Phantom Warrior.
The manabase of the precon is not good and you haven't changed it much. The color fixing is not good enough to be able to consistently cast Otrimi. Needing three different colors and having 11x basic Forests is going to be problematic without more color fixing.
On a budget, a manabase change to consider is to add the Bounce lands: Simic Growth Chamber, Dimir Aqueduct, Golgari Rot Farm in place of other lands that ETB tapped. With Bounce lands have to return a land you control to your hand (bounce) and they interact well with a basic land to bounce. They help with color fixing since you tap them for two different colors of mana.
- Dimir Aqueduct > Dimir Guildgate.
- Golgari Rot Farm > Golgari Guildgate.
- Simic Growth Chamber > Temple of Mystery.
- Yavimaya Coast > Thornwood Falls.
- Ash Barrens > Temple of the False God.
- Evolving Wilds > Soaring Seacliff.
- Could cut 2x Forest, add 2x more Island.
More Signets can help with faster ramp and color fixing. Arcane Signet is great, but there's three other budget Signets to consider adding: Simic Signet, Golgari Signet and Dimir Signet (Ravnica version). A Signet is helpful since any basic Forest or any other land can be used to make two different colors of mana.
Shared Summons is a budget instant creature tutor that can put any two creatures into your hand. Jarad's Orders is another creature tutor that puts a creature into your hand and any other creature into your graveyard such as one with mutate to recur with Otrimi. Primal Empathy can be repeatable draw source or repeatable source to make Otrimi bigger. Season of Growth can be another repeatable draw source, any time you cast a creature for it's mutate cost targeting a creature to mutate.
- Shared Summons > Illusory Ambusher.
- Jarad's Orders > Cavern Whisperer.
- Primal Empathy > Mysterious Egg.
- Season of Growth > Mind Spring.
Good luck with your deck.

Cards that generate value/card advantage are also great against black control. Take Thragtusk for example. You gain 5 life even if it's killed immediately, and then if they kill it you still get a token, so they have to use 2 cards to get rid of your 1 creature, and you still net the 5 life. Anything that takes multiple cards to destroy is what you want to look into, or cards that let you draw a card or 2 before they die.
If you're friend has to use 2 kill cards every time they try to get rid of one of your creatures, then you'll eventually you'll have more creatures than they have control spells.
