Augur of Skulls Discussion

Liliana's Caress is a strictly better Megrim, since it costs 1 less to cast.
Augur of Skulls (2 cards), Pilfering Imp (evasion / repeatable), Black Cat (random) and Rotting Rats (2 shots) are better discard creatures, however if you want to keep the rat theme you should run Pack Rat.
Funeral Charm is one of the few ways to force discard at instant speed.
Hope this helps, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

Yeah, that's it. Basically you can't use Augur of Skulls repetitively with its abilities.

Just in case you aren't aware, regenerating Augur of Skulls before you sac it doesn't bring it back to the battlefield, since regenerate only works when the creature is destroyed (specifically). Otherwise the deck looks good, though it could use a bit more removal like Fatal Push in the main and Flaying Tendrils in the sb instead of Bontu's Last Reckoning to deal with all the Arclight pheonixes flying around.

another thing: you can't regenerate Augur of Skulls to prevent it from sacrificing. sacrifice is something different from being destroied and in this case it's even required as a cost to activate an ability.

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.
