Divest

Sorcery

Target player reveals their hand. You choose an artifact or creature card from it. That player discards that card.

I think that Duress might actually be a better sideboard option than Divest .

You’re right about black not having a lot of artifact removal. My ideas would be something like Divest to stop it before it happens. In the same way as Divest would be, Inquisition of Kozilek was amazing there, as I drew 2 of them and got rid of two artifacts they had. That might be my game plan for other matches with a lot of artifacts/enchantments, although out of the 9 matches I’ve played with this deck so far, that was the only one reliant on artifacts. I’ll think about Ratchet Bomb, but I don’t know about splashing another color. Too much work on the manabase...

The Cabal Therapy has been replaced with Divest when I realized my error. Not sure if Divest or Duress is the better choice here, I'll have to do some testing.

I feel with Field of Ruin in here the deck is sitting at closer to 22 than 26 lands, but the mana base is highly questionable at this point, I need to do more testing on this as well.

Nissa, Vital Force and Maelstrom Pulse are at one as they're not vital to the main functionality of the deck, but I may up the count to 2 Maelstrom Pulse depending on how well I feel it's performing. I haven't had a chance to take this deck to any tournaments yet.

Thanks for the input.

Fell Flagship is weird with only one creature able to crew it. Even if you manage to crew, you have to hit the player and this is a huge problem. I can't think of one deck that will let it pass like this.

I would prolly value The Eldest Reborn or simply Divest/Duress over this imo.

Hey, thanks for the suggestion. I had tried Extirpate in a previous build, but I found that it was kind of narrow in use. Now that we have silver bullets like Lost Legacy and Infinite Obliteration at just three mana, we can be a bit more flexible. Extirpate is a great card though.

Honestly, you really could get away with a budget build for the time being. The most expensive integral piece now is Runed Halo and thanks to UMA, it is already about $5 a piece. Swap Inquisition and Thoughtseize for some combination of Duress, Despise, and Divest to get that early game intel that is- list text here so important to this deck. A playset of Caves of Koilos and a bunch of basics would easily form your mana base. In the sideboard, Leyline of Sanctity can become Ivory Mask and Porphyry Nodes can join Sadistic Sacrament in becoming more spot removal such as Mortify, Anguished Unmaking and even Utter End. I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't get it right at or even below $100. Good luck!

Hey, thanks for that! I am glad you like it.

Blue-Black or Mono-Black, with some in Jeskai, Rakdos, Grixis, and Izzet

Really, blue has some reasonably good card draw, specifically Augur of Bolas, Mulldrifter, Preordain, Ponder, and interaction in the form of Counterspell and the occasional Deprive. Otherwise, they don't have a great set of wincons, sweepers, or removal, so they need another color to get those.

In comparison, black has Gurmag Angler, a great wincon, and the best removal in the forms of Evincar's Justice, Echoing Decay, Shrivel, Pestilence, Cuombajj Witches, Disfigure, Chainer's Edict, Oubliette, Doom Blade, they have lifegain, discard like Duress, Distress, Chittering Rats, card draw like Phyrexian Rager, Thorn of the Black Rose, Sign in Blood, and mono-colored payoffs like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Tendrils of Corruption. There are even more great control cards from hate like Nihil Spellbomb, efficient spells like Cartouche of Ambition that just do a lot, land destruction like Choking Sands, more discard that is splashable like Addle, and the other following cards:

Diabolic Edict, Wrench Mind, Raven's Crime, Innocent Blood (for creatureless lists), Dead Weight, Crypt Incursion, Complete Disregard, Nausea, Reaping the Graves, Undying Evil, Read the Bones, Divest, Rancid Earth, Icequake, Dusk Legion Zealot, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Tragic Slip, Crypt Rats, Stinkweed Imp

That isn't to say a good mix of both isn't the best option, it probably is. You lose the mono-black payoffs, but get Probe, Forbidden Alchemy, Soul Manipulation. Really though, black is more useful than blue.

Duress is a good start. Divest is basically duress for creatures, it is good for discarding a carny-T or something. Of the 2, duress is stronger. (it can hit artifacts, enchantments, planeswalkers, and inst./sorcercys.) You already have unmorred ego, which is great versus jesaki.

Negate is a great card for creaturless control, Spell Pierce is good versus other dimir decks to counter annoying "reveal your hand" stuff.

Might i ask what Drowned Secrets is doing here? It seems... um... out of place. Enhanced Surveillance seems better in the 2-drop, and you have no other mill cards.

I like the idea, but I feel like there are better discard options in Standard. Divest/Duress, Thought Erasure.
