Heartless Pillage Discussion

Hey! Nice to see another discard/burn deck around! I have one myself, Torment of the discard! But mine has a bit less of discards and more creatures, creatures with deathtouch able to gain me some time till turn 4 or 5, to throw on all my curses.I like where your deck is going, the main suggestion I need to make is to play 3 or 4 copies of Sword-Point Diplomacy. It's just remarkable how it helps to keep your hand full, and most of the times people won't pay 3 lifepoints for the lands, they just don't know they're pumping up your Torment of Hailfire ;)Another card that seems to be working for me is treasure map , the scry is usefull when lacking mana or looking for something specific, and the 3 treasures are just terrific for torment!The wall you use is useful for the defense and burn, what I would suggest as well is Gifted Aetherborn, because 2-mana drop that kills big dinos and gets you some lifepoints. Also I attack a lot with my deathtouch creatures because I play Heartless Pillage instead of Unburden, it was a tough call but I managed to get the treasure advantage a few times and it's worth it!

Even so, nice deck! I really love this monoblacks for standard!

Thanks for your comment ArcticJohn! Nice to see another deck like this. My cards are gonna arrive in the next few days and I'll be ready to playtest it. You might be right about the boardsweepers, I might move a Bontu's to the sideboard, but I don't really care that much if I lose my creatures if it gets me some time to cast my echantments!

I'm really not sure what people see in Doomfall, I know I can choose any card, but I preffer Heartless Pillage cause I can easily trigger the the raid (many 1 or 2 drops) and that treasure really makes a difference if in short of mana for scarabs or raiders' wake!

And about Never//Return or Vraska's Contempt I didn't add them just to stay budget (I was hoping under 60$ but the 2xfatal push is a must)

I like it.

Only suggestions is someway to include Heartless Pillage since the tokens could speed up your casting of second sun or a fat ass torment while doing their dirty work of discarding two poor saps from your opponents hand.

Heartless Pillage is better than unburden IMO. And I'm confused on the Baleful Ammit pick but other than that it looks solid

I would cut the Galleon and the Blood Fasts for stuff like Heartless Pillage, Raiders' Wake, or more Duress, if your stated goal is to abuse the Tracker through discard. I like the deck, though!

I removed all Depths of Desire from my deck aswell, to draw card's i use Siren's Ruse which can do 3 things for 2 mana: save a pirate, draw a card and produce a treasure (if used on Sailor of Means for example)

You can also add Chart A Course, for example you attack with Dire Fleet Hoarder, if it dies you get a treasure and, regardless of that, you draw 2 cards for 2 mana and you could also use Heartless Pillage to get another treasure and ur opponent gotta discard 2 cards for 2 mana. it's a nice play on turn 4-5 for example

This would be a great combo with Torment of Scarabs and/or Torment of Hailfire for a great wincon. Also, Heartless Pillage is strictly better than Mind Rot.
