With Cabal Coffers , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Bubbling Muck , Cabal Stronghold , Skirge Familiar and possibly Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , it's possible to sink 20 - 50 mana into "X" finishers.

Optional Commander, and exchanges:

Swap Tergrid, God of Fright   in as commander and play Tinybones, Trinket Thief from the 99. Sub in cards like Dark Deal , Ill-Gotten Gains and Mindslicer . I recently pulled off a play where, with Tergrid, God of Fright   and Mindslicer on the field, made an opponent draw with Peer into the Abyss , only to Hero's Downfall the Mindslicer .

Adjustment notes:

I have removed board-wide GY hate cards such as Planar Void , Scavenger Grounds and Grafdigger's Cage and added/left targetted GY hate cards like Go Blank and Bojuka Bog for pesky reanimators. The Animate Dead / Reanimate plays are just too good. There is nothing like recurring an opponent's discarded Platinum Emperion , Emrakul, the Promised End or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite .
