Geth's Grimoire

Whenever an opponent discards a card, you may draw a card.

Geth's Grimoire Discussion

Aside from Wheel effects, I'm not seeing anything. Using the words "Whenever", "discard" & "draw", Gatherer comes up with something like 89 results.

The closest I could find is Geth's Grimoire , but you'd need to cobble it together with something else and I'm not seeing another piece to combo off with.

Sounds like you are trying to go infinite? Are you looking at some kind of "handsize control" deck?

I’m not sure such a beast exists

Some cards that I run in my The Haunt of Hightower deck that may be of use:

Reanimate or Animate Dead , depending on budget and collection; with so much discard you'll likely find some juicy targets in someone's yard. Same goes for Beacon of Unrest .

Liliana's Specter , hits the table with the discard, flying body just a bonus. I'd use this rather than some of your more expensive single target discard spells as this is multiplayer and its hard enough to punish the table playing discard.

Tasigur's Cruelty again, hits the table and you're not likely to be paying retail on this.

Geth's Grimoire Good way to refuel as you strip peoples' hands.

Bolas's Citadel better with Haunt as the lifelink there keeps this going but this is still an obscene card.

Rankle, Master of Pranks the haste, evasion and multiple modes are all good.

Waste Not More resources for you as opponents lose theirs.

More ramp is never bad; Charcoal Diamond / Wayfarer's Bauble plus since you've got Tomb/Coffers, Expedition Map sees that combo come together more frequently.

Not sure about Dismember , Hero's Downfall or Vraska's Contempt would probably be useful more often in this spot. Though I suppose if your meta plays a lot of indestructibles, then Dismember may be the answer.

Have you already considered Words of Waste ? When this is on the battlefield it would have good direct synergy with your cards like: Syphon Mind , Geth's Grimoire , Anvil of Bogardan or Phyrexian Arena .

I've considered building my Nekusar deck upon handhate, exciting to see other players considering a discard type of deck. I'm curious about how good handhate of a strategy is. How has it worked out so far?

So two cards I think you should put in right away are Geth's Grimoire and Words of Waste . Paired, they're busted -- but individually they're good, too.

Smallpox and Pox are some pretty brutal spells to resolve. I've always been partial to Smallpox , simply because it's easier to build around, but Pox proper can be pretty good too.

Liliana of the Veil is amazing, though unfortunately she is a lot of money. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is a more affordable alternative -- and if you can flip her fast and consistently, she's arguably just as good. Liliana Vess is also good, but I think she's significantly worse than the aforementioned. If you run some Lilies, Liliana's Triumph becomes even more powerful.

Considering how much of your creatures are under three power, you might want to consider Meekstone if your meta is into the whole attacking thing.

Raven's Crime interacts pretty well with Null Profusion .

Night of Souls' Betrayal seems like it'd be super dorky in this deck. Your x/1s (like Dusk Legion Zealot ) would die and come back every turn so long as your general is down, so you'd get their triggers on every end step. This will require a lot of build-around, but keep it in mind because it's kinda super powerful.

Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists are good permanent-based sources of discard. Oppression is also pretty dumb.
