Yeah, Nyxathid is much better. Personally I'd play removal instead of Dreamstealer or Nyxathid, since The Rack and Shrieking Affliction are enough win-con-wise. Usually 8-rack (and other black control decks) plays a ton of removal in the main.
Also, 8-rack always plays Liliana of the Veil because eventually the game gets to the point where both players are topdecking and you need a consistent source of repeatable discard to keep your opponent from piling up cards in their hand. I suggest you try playing Augur of Skulls to fill that role (I said this already, but it couldn't hurt to say it again ;D). In any case, it's better than Dreamstealer.

I also think you should have a spell other than Duress, since there are decks out there that don't play any spells (if it's a meta call tho that's fine). Again, Inquisition of Kozilek is the ideal, but Funeral Charm and Blackmail are good too. Charm can also kill Young Pyromancer or Glistener Elf. Idk how much Master of the Feast adds to the deck, but tell me how it goes.

You'll probably get more value from Undying Evil over Recover; in particular, the synergy it has with Ingot Chewer, Augur of Skulls, Insolent Neonate, Kathari Bomber, and echo card mechanics. Undying procs on any death, including sacrifices. It's an incredible combo card. Also, Unearth for consideration as well.

Augur of Skulls might be even more infuriating with that undying trigger too. And it can chump and regenerate from a goyf for days.

IAmTheWraith What if the goal to Athreos was different? I mean I don't really care if maralen is dead. it just cost him 6 life. mix tht with Tidehollow Sculler and Vendilion Clique & Augur of Skulls it's starting to be alot of life to keep them dead.
But maybe it is a bit slow. I did some playtesting and I always had a better card to play than athreos.
legendofa also spellstutter sprite is doing bad, not enough faeries.
SeekerofSecrets At this point the lock is probably better off as a secondary wincon. But I can't deny you are right about bitterblossom, while it's a nice card to have, it puts us at risk. Maybe lingering souls would be better.
maybe Siren Stormtamer to protect maralen?
what do you guys think about Tidehollow Sculler maybe the new pirate would be bad?
