At end of turn, each player who tapped a land for mana this turn sacrifices a land. If a Plains is sacrificed this way, Desolation deals 2 damage to that Plains's controller.

cdkime on Will WotC Keep Life Loss ...

Yes--I think black having its own distinct feel and mechanic is important. I do not foresee Wizards abandoning life loss as a fundamental component of Black's identity.

Also, I take issue with your statement of "dealt damage in the past, but always when draining life": Artifact Possession, Choking Sands, Corpse Lunge, Curse Artifact, Curse of Thirst, Cursed Land, Dakmor Plague, Dead Reckoning, Desolation, Dry Spell, Evincar's Justice, Famine, Festering Evil (I think this is sufficient to prove my point, but I'm only at the letter F and there would be a lot more to copy and paste).

Tilling Treefolk is good at pulling sac lands back to your hand. Realms Uncharted might work. Desolation is kind of evil. You might want to consider a Desert sub them with all the desert sac lands, you get card draw on top of the mild effect.

Great creature list!

Have you ever tested with more enchantments like Desolation, Endless Whispers, Forsaken Wastes, Ghostly Prison, Karmic Justice, Megrim, Oppression, Rule of Law, Season of the Witch, or Warped Devotion? They might be fun to try in casual games.

Happy playing!

Great enchantment suite. Have you ever tested with Desolation, Forsaken Wastes, Oppression, Season of the Witch, or Warped Devotion?

Happy playing!

Looks very gross and controlling - nice!

Have you ever tested with Desolation, Forsaken Wastes, or Season of the Witch?

Have fun with the stax!

Hey chadsansing, I'm glad you like my deck!

I do really like Desolation, so I'll definitely consider that!

As for discard, I do have a Mogis deck centered around that if you'd like to check that out! It's a bit more consistent than this since it centers around discard instead of pure flavor, but it's still fun to play. I'll be updating it soon since I've made some changes to how I run it, so be on the lookout for that!

Thanks again for your feedback!

I love this kind of distributed taxes deck. I saw Megrim and Oppression in the maybeboard; have you also considered Desolation,Necrogen Mists, and Warped Devotion to set up even more loops?

I have to +1 Choice of Damnations, as well, for any flex spots you have. Ridiculous fun.

Happy playing!
