I used to run two copies of Corrupt in sideboard, but was almost never useful. I'm still considering Tendrils of Corruption, but don't know what to remove for it.

@Icbrgr: Good luck with this deck! It sounds like fun!

I was brewing 4C Land Destruction for a while and really liked playing it, but then they banned Deathrite Shaman.

That reminds me, does your deck benefit much if you added mana acceleration, like Golgari Signet, Mind Stone, Solemn Simulacrum, or Talisman of Dominance?

The only other suggestion I can think of is adding Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoths to the deck so that you can tap your Ghost Quarters and Tectonic Edges for . It also lets you play cards like Mutavault or Stalking Stones more efficiently. It also makes Mutilate and Corrupt insane. I think even with a limited budget, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is the one card definitely worth investing in.

Lmoyer, thanks for such a detailed response.

Leyline of the Void is moreso for decks that operate out of the graveyard or delver decks.

I agree with Dark Confidant, just too many monies!

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is only in combination with Mutavault, and Mutavault is included as another way to chip in damage on an empty board. (Based on streams and pro player decklists)

Thoughtseize is a 4 of in most decks that want them, but I don't think they are so good here. The life loss is not insignificant when you have no blockers. I'd happily run 3, maybe bump up to the 4th if I go the Ensnaring Bridge route, but again, a little expensive.

Corrupt is interesting, but the 6 mana is definitely a lot, and I would feel a little weary to tap out into a negate. Something to play around with though.

I don't want to go too lean on lands because I want to have 2-3 in the opener, and late game they can turn into more Raven's Crimes if I have one in the yard.

Thanks again, you've given me a bit to think about!

Leyline of the Void doesn't seem to add much here. The gameplan isn't to put cards into the grave, but to get them out of their hand. After its out of their hand, it doesn't matter if it gets shuffled into their deck like certain cards do, they're still going to be taking damage from The Rack and Shrieking Affliction which should kill them before it matters.

Dark Confidant could be good here. The worst that would happen is you take 3 damage in one turn. The bad part is you could potentially draw more discard than you need. Seems like a good problem to have though XD

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth literally does nothing here. You already play almost all swamps save 1 land. You have no effects that care about Swamps anyway.

Damnation might be overkill. Maybe try Murder, as its cheaper and hopefully they won't have had a chance to load the field with critters because you're causing them to discard everything. Play testing against aggro would be needed to know for sure which is better.

Thoughtseize is a great inclusion, almost strictly better than Blackmail, but that price tag is a bit steep. You could even use Duress for budget reasons.

Surgical Extraction would definitely be sideboard tech. Figure out what deck they're playing, and then hopefully you draw it and can disrupt either their combo or take out their finisher, or just a troublesome thing you can't easily answer with other means.

Mutavault is best used for Tribal themes, like Merfolk. It's an allstar in those decks, but in 8-Rack it might fall flat. It can't cast a large majority of your spells, which makes it terrible. It could be a beater, but is it worth the inclusion without cohesion?

Corrupt isn't a discard spell, and it does cost 6 mana, but it could easily make for surprise wins. Assuming you cast it on curve, they lose 6 life and you gain 6 life. It's a synergistic play with Thoughtseize and Dark Confidant since it replenished some life. I'm not quite sure what I would recommend taking out though.

Actually, you might be running too many land. Everything is cheap to cast, 1-3 mana, so you could maybe cut down to 17 Swamp, 1 Dakmor Salvage, and add in some of the suggestions.

PROPOSED CHANGES-3 Swamp-2 Inquisition of Kozilek+4 Thoughtseize+1 Liliana of the Veil

Thoughtseize is strictly better than IoK, and 2 life doesn't hurt too bad since you have no shocklands or fetches, and you can pick any non-land card instead of just CMC 3 or less. Liliana of the Veil is usually a 4 of I think, but multiple copies in your hand don't really do anything except sit there, so maybe 3 is the sweet spot. You're still likely to draw her, but not necessarily multiple.
