Hi, i do play a discard deck too, and i can give you some advice from experience, Cards like Megrim or Liliana's caress are underperforming if you're not playing with wheels, since you're opponent are quickly going to play topdecking. I prefer cards like Quest for the Nihil Stone , Shrieking Affliction and Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage dealing a lot more damage if you are consistent with discard effect.

I really think targeted discard effect are kinda clunky, like Pilfering Imp you already gonna make everyone discard so fast that card selection isn't that important, and you'd better have some removal instead.

Also, i really think you should include some ramp into the deck, that allow you to play your hand and not suffer too much from the symetric discard effects and play your high curve spells early on (else you just gonna discard them) in the same way, i really like to include "free" spells like Snuff Out or Massacre . Ramping or Mana efficiency is really a key in multiplayer EDH and you're going to suffer a lot if you can't play faster.

I really like to play with "not in hand" card like Experimental Frenzy or Theater of Horrors that let's you play with cards even if everyone has no hand.

I'm not a fan of Sanguine Bond exquisite blood combo in this type of decks, because the cards alone are pretty bad, but one card i'm really not enjoying on discard lists is living death. your deck is fill with some week creatures and you're never gonna get more value then your opponents with a living death. Targeted Reanimator spell can be good, like Reanimate , opponent discarding an ulamog turn 1 cause he's never gonna play him ? just take it for 1.

As a suggestion i think you missed out Anje's Ravager a really sweet card in this type of deck and Asylum Visitor

Thoose are just thought on how i like my discard commander decks, take what you need and what you think is fitting your playstyle !

I saw some variant of this go up against GW taxes in modern. Did pretty well.

Only drawback I remember is with Voldaren Pariah  Flip. Someone can kill it in response to you sac'ing 3 creatures.

Any deck that makes use of the budget Dark Confidant cough Asylum Visitor cough gets a +1 from me tho

4x Snapcaster Mage and 4x Asylum Visitor I would give a try for card advantage.

Well, suggestions based on: no money restriction..

Thirsting Bloodlord and Sanctum Seeker are not necessary.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a better choice than Bloodthirsty Aerialist .

You haven't any drop 2. Maybe Asylum Visitor , Gifted Aetherborn , Bloodcrazed Paladin .

Indulgent Aristocrat can be another good drop 1.

The artifacts are trash.

Nothing of Duress , pick Thoughtseize or go to another mechanic. Murder it the worst choice for this type of card, but Fatal Push is a good and not so expensive card.

At least, variation on lands, the Castle Locthwain , for example. Mutavault is required for any tribal deck.

I'm pretty sure Asylum Visitor is better than blood scrivener.

Hey, so if you want to play discard you might want your opponents to have cards in hand to trigger your various discard trigger. As for another Land Geier Reach Sanitarium maybe add The Rack and Asylum Visitor . In general in EDH not only focus on your own strategy but always include some disruption for your opponents. Games might go long so include various card draw possibilites. You might also want to work on your curve and include more 1-3 mana spells and cut some 5+cmc.

Anyway cool deck idea!

Theater of Horrors is a card I've thought a lot on, I don't think it fits this deck but it seems powerful, you could try the new Castle Locthwain which seems pretty potent. If you're also worried about winning you could try the one and done effect of Sign in Blood . Depending on how easily you become hellbent Asylum Visitor has the potential to draw two cards per round of the table plus the one card per turn. I hope this has helped but most card draw in are going to deal damage to you.
