Well, it would work with options to draw cards on an opponent's turn. Cycling effects for example.

May 4, 2019I personally like Karn's Temporal Sundering in combination with Riverwise Augur. The more versatility you have, to not completely rely on Scroll Rack, the better.Posted in: Competitive Commander (cEDH)
You play Narset's Reversal, but no Isochron Scepter? Together, they also allow you to bounce your own extra turn spells.
What about Wincons? I mean, of course, infinite extra turns are a pretty good option, but cards like Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries should be in there in my opinion. That's why I'd cut Finale of Revelation.
If you play Metallurgic Summonings, you could also play Mechanized Production as another wincon.
What about protection? Propaganda or Glacial Chasm both sound like valid options to buy yourself some time.

Library of Leng has gotten Errata that replaces the "forces" with "causes", so it will work with Painful Quandary or Torment of Hailfire or may discard, as long as those are effects and not costs.
It now reads
"You have no maximum hand size.
If an effect causes you to discard a card, discard it, but you may put it on top of your library instead of into your graveyard."
and not "If an effect forces you".
This is the decklist I'm piloting at the moment. It's far from perfect, but it is quite ugly to play against:

All the tokens. I like the Zombies.
A new threat rises against Sidisi:
Ashiok, Dream Render
Jan 11, 2019But it's a -ability, so your new zombies won't be able to do it. The Petitioners second activated ability doesn't have a tap-symbol, so you can mill more effectively with them.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Jan 10, 2019Uhhh, how about a new version, dedicated to Mill?Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Persistent Petitioners looks so juicy with cards like Intruder Alarm, Altar of Dementia, Altar of the Brood and the eldrazi titans.
Dec 8, 2018That was the mistake. I should've used the Whip to get it back in the first place, not Witness. :/Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Dec 7, 2018Played 2 games with Sidisi, lost the first to a flying 26/26 Hornet Queen created by an Ezuri, Claw of Progress. The second game I won through Doubling Season, Diregraf Captain and Altar of Dementia, by sacrificing infinite Zombies for milling myself.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Those games were both pretty unspectacular, but both games I had Whip of Erebos out and it was a blast! The lifegain it generated was really helpful and if I hadn't made the mistake in the first game, I would have won it. I had the Whip out and played Eternal Witness, to get my Craterhoof Behemoth back from the grave. I played Craterhoof... and it got countered. Only 3 mana left... Should've used Whip to get it into the game and I would've won.
Unfortunately I didn't play against the RiP this time.
Dec 5, 2018I found an Unmoored Ego in my collection and will test it, along with other removal. I like that it searches nearly all zones for the named card, so I'm nearly 100% sure to find and exile it.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
With Praetor's Grasp I can only search the library, but I don't have to name a specific card.
So, I made a few changes:
Dec 5, 2018The problem is, it doesn't get rid of RiP. Sidisi's whole strategy is shut down, if I don't remove it immediately. I can't make new zombies with Sidisi, as long as this enchantment is lying on the battlefield, because my cards never hit the graveyard.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
So no, Elixir of Immortality isn't helping much.
There is only one player playing it, though. But he tutors actively for it.
Unmoored Ego or Praetor's Grasp come to mind, and I think, I like them more than a simple counterspell like Voidslime, because they get rid of RiP and I don't need to keep mana open in case it's being casted.
Dec 5, 2018Nope, unless there is a "target" in the text it's not targeted. Same thing with Godsend, you just exile one creature that blocks or is blocked, even if it has shroud, hexproof or even protection from everything (aka Progenitus when it blocks your creature with the Godsend on it).Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
To keep this on topic:
This friday, I'm going to play again. I'm still pondering which changes to make and what cards to cut. The RiP is hanging like a sword of Damocles over the table and I need to find a way to tackle it. Voidslime is an option, but I don't like one-time-use effects.
Dec 4, 2018Nekusar, the Mindrazer doesn't target, so Witchbane Orb does not protect you against it.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Also cards like Rest in Peace will still exile your graveyard, so I'm not sure if Witchbane Orb is a good choice for this deck.

Yeah, I considered it and wanted to make the swap but I didn't get my hands on the Lich at that time. Now that it is cheaper I'll probably get one soon.
I still like Whip of Erebos, because its first ability to give all my creatures Lifelink. It's tutorable with Tezzeret and is a one-way revive for creatures in my graveyard, even though I don't like the exile-part. There aren't any good other options in Sidisi's colors for granting Lifelink to all of our creatures.

How have you been running your build?
That's the build I'm currently using. I only played one game with it and was very unlucky to not have an answer to RiP but I think the list is still pretty good. Not perfect, though. Also, I made the best turn 3 play to draw all the hate on me. Mesmeric Orb... I just wanted to play something after two turns of nothing.
I feel like there are some candidates to swap out of the deck.
Undead Alchemist is one of those. I like the card, but I feel like it is too slow in a deck not dedicated to solely zombies.
Grimgrin, Corpse-Born also feels like it doesn't really belong in this deck. Yeah, it destroys an opponent's creature when it attacks, but I still got the feeling like it doesn't really work out. It needs a full turn to destroy something and paints a huge target on your forehead. I think, Avatar of Woe is the better option here. It is mostly cheaper (especially in Sidisi), doesn't cipt and is reusable, even if you don't attack, with cards like Aphetto Alchemist.
There are possibly more cards (I have an eye on you, Akroma's Memorial) but for the moment those are the two, that stand out mostly.
