I've already upvoted this deck but i just gotta say that i love it... Waste Not seems really fun... i like the card when it was first released but have yet to actually play with it. How does it perform for you?

Lilli really is a must in the deck, I’ve played a lot of 8Rack but not in the current meta as I’m just returning to magic but I’ve found the red version just not worth it. You’re still susceptible to enchantment hate& if you’re going to run red the Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace is pretty much the best reason to. Just echoing what has already been said, Funeral Charm is great, discard at instant speed that doubles at removal Is extremely powerful. I find there’s not really room in the deck for flavor cards but if you do want flavor Waste Not Bitterblossom or Nyxathid are excellent choices. Also you may want to trim Raven's Crime. It’s one of the best cards in the deck but multiples of it are useless and you absolutely have to run Dakmor Salvage with it as it completes the engine.

So I actually did an order the day before you commented and luckily for me a lot of your suggestions are in my order.

To help with draw I’ve added Gravestorm Rhystic Study Verity Circle Waste Not

To help with lands I’ve added Choked Estuary Creeping Tar Pit Jwar Isle Refuge Mistvault Bridge Salt Marsh Submerged Boneyard Sunken Hollow Swiftwater Cliffs Tainted Isle Temple of Epiphany

To help with mana rocks I’ve added Arcane Signet Corrupted Grafstone Dimir Signet Fellwar Stone Izzet Signet Thought Vessel

I’ve been really contemplating making Mirko Vosk my commander due to the lack of red but I really wanted Xander to work.

@joe_mama_joe: Thanks for the kind words. So I'll try to explain our choice here:

Cao Cao, Lord of Wei isn't rated that high, he's just a middle of the road commander, but he can quickly wreak havoc along with untappers, Waste Not or Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip. Black has also access to all the good tutors, removal and ritual ramp.

Looks good so far. Personally I would make these swaps:

Cormela, Glamour Thief -> Coalition Relic
Maestros Ascendancy -> Worn Powerstone
Tragic Slip -> Syr Konrad, the Grim
Aether Tunnel -> Rogue's Passage
Protective Bubble -> Shizo, Death's Storehouse
Thought Collapse -> Seize the Day
Mirror Box -> Sakashima of a Thousand Faces
Umbral Mantle -> Firemind Vessel
Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant -> The Haunt of Hightower
Megrim -> Spark Double
Liliana's Caress -> Waste Not
Aqeous Form -> Sleeper's Robe
Lier, Disciple of the Drowned -> Cabal Conditioning
Aetherspouts -> Hedron Archive
Go for the Throat -> Component Pouch
Turnabout -> Sakashima the Impostor
Terminate -> Generator Servant

Great deck, Waste Not, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Rite of Replication will fit in pretty good as well.

Waste Not, Words of Waste, Noetic Scales, Geth's Grimoire, Dauthi Voidwalker and mostly Tegrid god of fright all synergize big time with Dark Deal and Pox too.

I would think about cutting Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Ensnaring Bridge depending on what creatures show up in your meta and Liliana's Spoils maybe.
