(JSYK, I had a minor Blackout so I couldn't respond earlier. Sorry... :/)
@griffstick: I appreciate your suggestions about this, but I was asking about what cuts I should do to get to 100? Oh, & I'll add Contagion Engine & Inexorable Tide. Even though both things are considered "Win-More" to many. I already have quite some engine anyway; although you are still, regardless, tempting me into that Plaguemaw Beast... XP
BTW, just looked up Smh. Either you're right about a mass Discard deck w/ Tibalt running either Olivia, Mobilized for War, or Malfegor, & I'm as Ambitious as I already know; moreso even now, or the fact I'm running would mean something regarding the 4 words; all Keywords. Well, I'm sorry about such a notion, but there probably is worse out there anyway; Hint: Eldrazi Displacer + Riftsweeper. & the deck isn't even .
But I digress.
This means I have 3 to add, but I added the following anyway:
Would Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice apply? I could activate his ability to copy Rings of Brighthearth to add an additional activation. Does this work that way? If so, I have 4 cards in addition to cut. What walkers should I cut? I guess Dovin Baan has negligible abilities... So, which to cut to 100? & thanks, griffstick. I'll use at least 3 of what you suggested... :D

Hey, Grixis Control (Dimir splashing red for Bolas) with a tapout discard/surveil theme is a deck that has potential in Standard.
Thought Erasure, Disinformation Campaign, Bolas, Doom Whisperer, Dream Eater can be a powerful curve. A deck like this can take advantage of Ritual of Soot since Bolas, Whisperer and Eater don't die to it. You can splash red for Bolas with 10-12 sources of red: 4x Steam Vents, 4x Dragonskull Summit, 3-4x Sulfur Falls.
Main deck supporting spells can be: Discovery / Dispersal, Moment of Craving, Vraska's Contempt, Essence Scatter, Cast Down, Notion Rain, Search for Azcanta Flip, The Eldest Reborn. Sideboard Duress and Angrath, the Flame-Chained can add to the discard theme. Thief of Sanity and Negate are two of Dimir's best sideboard cards.

Have you tried moving Angrath, the Flame-Chained to the mainboard? I think he would be a good finisher.

Angrath, the Flame-Chained and Raiders' Wake cause loss of life, which is notably not damage. Cards like Root Snare or Moment's Peace or Fog usually prevent combat damage, so no interaction with life loss at all.
Damage has different variants, most often divided into combat damage (damage done by creatures as a result of combat) and non-combat damage (any other damage). Saskia the Unyielding is a great example - she says that whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, it deals that much (non-combat) damage to the chosen player.
Loss of life is present on a few cards, mostly as a way to flavorfully change what damage is. However, it does have practical applications as well - all damage causes loss of life, so for example Exquisite Blood will trigger from attacking and dealing combat with a creature or by playing Corrupt on a player.

I have a deck that uses Angrath, the Flame-Chained and Raiders' Wake to hurt my opponent. One person in my play group likes to use root snare and defend the heart to prevent the loss of life. My understanding is that loss of life is not damage, therefore any opponent would still lose life. Is this correct?

Since I can't seem to try & contact someone, I'll just state I'm planning to update my Superfriends Deck. However, I actually have a slightly differing path this time:
Some Planeswalkers' will be replaced w/ a card of similar Loyalty Ability...
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets = "A Banned Card"
Angrath, the Flame-Chained for Graveyard Abuse.
Liliana, the Necromancer = quite some decent stuff!)
Ral, Caller of Storms = Card Advantage, & then some...
Djeru, With Eyes Open = it tutors for walkers!
Thalia's Lancers = Search for any Legendary!
There are several others I'll mention later on. I'd like some opinions about these. & yes, I'd like a card that can copy a card twice for stuff like this.
Also, just so I don't depend on Ultimates alone, I'd like some suggestions for Planeswalkers Combo utilizing Loyalty abilities; and no, using The Chain Veil doesn't count... Good luck! :) & I'll be updating my other decks as well if anyone cares...
