If a player would draw a card, instead he or she draws a card and reveals it. If it's a creature card, that player discards it unless he or she pays 3 life.

Breathstealer's Crypt Discussion
1 month ago
cdkime: I really like those suggestions, Library of Leng and Helm of the Ghastlord will most certainly find a home in this deck. I see the power of Phyresis, but I'm not looking to gain the hate of infect in my meta. Sigil of Sleep is also one I'll be keeping an eye on, though I've also bought a Breathstealer's Crypt for better creature control.

You probably need to stop them from searching libraries and shuffling. Mindlock Orb helps with that. Maralen of the Mornsong combos with that to stop anyone from drawing cards, but with Muldrotha as your commander you can bypass the lock with self-mill like Sultai Ascendancy or Deadbridge Chant or cards like Taigam, Sidisi's Hand or Abundance. Rather than Winter Orb, Smokestack and Possessed Portal work well with Muldrotha. It's a pity you aren't playing white since Angel of Jubilation and Breathstealer's Crypt prevents your opponents from drawing creature cards ever again.
Cut everything apart from lands, then add in the core control elements, and then ramp and card advantage and removal.

If you would like some suggestions,Drop:
Transguild Promenade (not a great mana filter)
painted bluffs (not great mana filter)
River of tears (some comp decks run this but personally i dont like it)
Duskmantle Seer (you have some high CMC cards)
Nucklavee (cmc too expensive)
Wizard Replica (use actual counterspells rather than creature ones)
Dissipate (use a different counterspell: Arcane Denial)
Ravenous Trap (Run bojuka bog instead)
Disdainful Stroke (not a great counterspell: trade out for undermine)
Horn of Greed (this cards actually alright to keep if you cant find a replacement)
Neurok Stealthsuit (actually mentioning this card because its great! glad to see someone use it)
Sphere of the Suns (theres better cheaper manarocks)
Traveler's Amulet (not great ramp)
Wayfarer's Bauble ()
Deny Existence (not great counterspell: trade out for Dream Fracture?)
Negate (get Counterspell instead)
God-Pharaoh's Gift (Too high of a cmc for what it does, when your deck gets further developed you will end up with less creatures)
Mind Stone (trade out for sol ring)
Dimir Charm (i like izzet charm better, not a super whole lot of 2 mana cards you want to destroy in edh)
You have a lot of instant and sorcery retrieval, Honestly with Nekusar in my opinion you should actually replace those cards with more copys (For example Windfall and Collective Defiance are basically copys since they do the same thing) = Consistency, its nice to grab whatever you want from the graveyard but you dont always have that option.Heres some cheap cards to fit in maybe? i play paper and im thinking paper prices, everything here should be under $3
Graven Cairns: Fantastic mana filter, too bad the rest of the cycles are incredibly cheap, this is the only super cheap one
Breathstealer's Crypt: This card is insane for what it is, it hits you too but its still worth it.
Temple Bell Great card, try to tap it at the end of their turns, or use when you need to topdeck a counterspell

tlk_lone_knight wow those are a lot of suggestions, thanks!
I didn't want to attack with creatures, although those are some nice cards, but the whole Deck had to be changed or atleast the creatures since I only run utility creatures. Neko-Te Hot Soup Sword of Feast and Famine
Illusionist's Bracers is already in the list but thanks anyways!

in regards to the Breathstealer's Crypt forcing a player to draw a card or them naturally drawing a card triggers the effect. They MUST reveal the card and if it is a creature they MUST pay 3 life or discard it. using Cephalid Looter would cause them to draw, reveal said drawn card, if a creature pay the life/discard, then discard a card from hand.
I was incorrect with Chains of Mephistopheles unfortunately it has not been reprinted and does cost around 400$ because i believe it sees legacy play

tlk_lone_knight Thank you for your suggestions and the +1!
Chains of Mephistopheles is a brutal card I have not seen before. But it is also really expensive. Where did it get reprinted?
Wound Reflection has a high CMC but it should be awesome in this Deck. I will definitely give it a try. Thank you for that.
Dragon Mage could be tricky, would probably fit better in a wheel Deck. I don't know if it would stay long on the stack.
Jace's Archivist is great but in most cases me and my opponent both have almost no handcards. Would be a little bit better if you could draw a fix amount of cards.

Love the deck. Love the idea.
Breathstealer's Crypt would be a decent hate card for the creature heavy decks sense you are using low powered utility creatures and dont have a lot of ways to stop people from attacking you.
Chains of Mephistopheles use to be an extremely expensive card but due to recent reprint the price as dropped. Super utility in for additional discard. if using this card i would recommend that you also run Library of Leng as it will prevent you from losing cards to the graveyard.
Wound Reflection is another source of additional damage for opponents however will make you a heavy target.
Dragon Mage would make for a good discard engine while also giving you some block potential.
With all the discard effects you are using Consuming Aberration would be a valid win con.
