Agree with Kjartan on more or less everything. IF your strategy is to wait for your opponent to bleed to death from using his lands, or drawing cards, don't spend the time playing small-scale damage like Merfolk Spy or Bump in the Night.

Get 2 more Spreading Seas. They can cut an opponent of from a color, in ways that Sea's Claim can't AND draw you a card. Ghost Quarter and Tectonic Edge can take care of lands that you haven't somehow poisoned.

You could exchange Merfolk Spy for Augur of Skulls. Not because it does anything particular for your deck archetype, but it can block big creatures all day, and when you are going to play a sweeper, use it for discard.

Shrieking Affliction is worthwhile. There is a deck called 8 rack that uses both of those cards to great effect.

Bump in the Night could be Vision Charm to have modular options. Also could use more Fatal Push Any black deck needs it and you have fetches for on demand revolt.

Cry of Contrition could be Raven's Crime which turns dead lands late game into more discard. You could swap Augur of Skulls for Asylum Visitor. If both people are hellbent, it is free cards. You also have 7 copies of Darkness between MB and SB.

go 8rack: 4 The Rack, 4 Shrieking Affliction, and the only creature you use is Augur of Skulls, since it can block Death's Shadow all afternoon without getting tired. Drop the other creatures, and Liliana's Caress.

This deck is basically 8-rack without the win-con. You want four copies each of The Rack (there are cheap printings of it) and Shrieking Affliction. You also want to drop most of the creatures, Augur of Skulls or other things with recursion are your best blockers.

As for discard you want Wrench Mind and you want targeted discard in the form of Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize.

The Exquisite + Sanguine combo is interesting but slow, it could be put in the deck if the primary gameplan doesn't work but only if you really want it.

Hey, I have a few suggestions/ comments.

Why do you use 24 lands in a deck that has such a low CMC? You're chancing some uneventful draws with so many lands. 19 should be about perfect, it gives you room for more spell play.

Ratchet Bomb is also kind of useless If your deck is running properly, one boardwipe in the main board like Damnation would be fine. Grafdigger's Cage would be a good option for the sideboard.

Necrogen Mists is also a double-edged sword, but since you aren't running Liliana of the Veil it's hard to find a substitution. Since your deck is reliant on you playing spells though. Liliana, Defiant Necromancer  Flip might be a better option on a budget.

Thoughtseize over Inquisition of Kozilek might have a better effect for you too.

After some more play: I always side out the Augur of Skulls so lets just start that way. Also, I've run into matchups where Waste Not seemed relevant. Other card balances have been altered as I've aquired some better stuff.

  1. -3 Flaying Tendrils
  2. -4 Augur of Skulls
  3. -1 Raven's Crime
