i made this deck for 2 reasons: Kaervek is one of the two multiplayers generals (and i love him) and i will make a very multiplayer deck. I will kick each of my opponents ass at the same time. Most of these spells and abilities have global effects. There are some cards i'm not sure about them: the two swords, rage reflection and grave pact. What do you think? What will you change of this deck? I'm waiting some suggestions... thank you

Have you played any matches with the deck, can you provide us with some feedback of your own?

Off the top of my head though:
Shimian Spectre seems like a substandard spectre here as it's memoricide ability seems irrelevant.
If you're playing with Mephridoss Vampire then you should consider incouding Triskelion for the mad synergy there.
And speaking of mad synergy I'd like to suggest some additional options for equipment.
Namely, Basilisk Collar, Scythe of the Wretched and Grafted Exoskeleton.

Problems:
1) Sometimes i draw too many lands, i must cut off some for mana artifacts or similar
2) I never won a game, cause of Uril, or big creatures usually. I think i need more tutors for destroy-effect
Why the equipments? I should change corrupt and tendrills, i only have Urborg for them. Shimian spectre is here because he takes out dangerous cards forever, which can be easily get back from the grave..
Thank you very much for replying!

Okay, looking over the deck, my biggest piece of advice would be to lose the discard theme. All of your specters and megrims are going to annoy people much more than they inflict actual damage.

I'd run more artifact to help smooth out your mana and make sure you hit land drops. Armillary Sphere, Wanderer's Bauble, and Journeyer's Kite are all strong cards. Expedition Map is particularly awesome because it can help you assemble your Urborg + Coffers. For every two cards like this you add, you can cut one of your lands.

A bit more defense might help you stay alive - consider Barter in Blood and Fleshbag Marauder as light board sweepers. If you need more heavy-duty options, Nevinyrral's Disk and Oblivion Stone should do the job.

Finally, some more raw card draw would help keep you going in the late game. Syphon Mind, Ancient Craving, and Ambitions Cost are solid options. Promise of Power is swingy but deadly. I've seen Knollspine Dragon draw 25 cards in one turn.

I honestly don't get the whole discard thing in this deck. Kaervek thrives on your opponents casting spells to damage them, so it seems counterintuitive to have a bunch of discard. You want them to have plenty of spells for your general to beat their faces in...

Could you please help me? Thanks a lot guys!

I still don't see Barter in Blood or Fleshbag Marauder. Unless your Uril player has a very outside-the-box build with tons of other creatures, Uril decks rarely have more than 1 or 2 creatures out. So Barter should almost always get Uril off the board, and Fleshbag Marauder is pretty easy to recur.

Murderous Redcap seems weak in EDH. Rarely kills anything you really want to kill.
