Heartstone Discussion

Thanks, I wasn't sure if I could actually use Heartstone or not.

So to answer your question: Yes. Tymaret's abilities are activiated abilities. Therefore Heartstone reduces the cost of said abilities to and respectively when in play. Heartstone is not reducing the cost of ether abilitiy to less than one mana.

As for other cards that reduce ability costs, you have:

Training Grounds - outside of your commander's colors, but it needs to be mentioned anyway. It's super awesome, and super popular.

Rings of Brighthearth - this is sort of like Heartstone in that you can pay for using an ability again...just at a different cost.

Illusionist's Bracers - This copies an activated ability for free, more or less - this is pretty good when using an infinite mana combo.

Sculpting Steel - you could use this to copy Heartstone -yeah I've pretty much run out of ideas at this point lol.

Yes, Heartstone should lower the cost of Tymaret, the Murder King activated abilities by 1 colorless mana. Heartstone states that it can't be less than one.

I know there's a restriction printed on Heartstone, so I'm not sure if it's possible.

Are there any other cards that reduce activation costs?

You might consider Nightscape Familiar for ramp. He's a zombie that makes your blue spells a little cheaper, plus he's got regenerate that gets reduced to B with Training Grounds or Heartstone. He doesn't hit mono-black spells though, which is a bit of a bummer.

Yeah, I think Heartstone is a great add. And even though I think their are many other cards that should be removed from this deck, Witches' Eye could easily go out.

Heartstone and Hellfire Mongrel are great suggestions: I think I'll look into more cards like that.

Ah, so the idea with Maralen of the Mornsong is that if I include a discard engine, I'll always have more cards than my opponents, due to the restrictions that she creates?

She's a really interesting general: damage and card disadvantage rolled into one. Very interesting.

Panas on Tymaret, the Discard King

hmm..? I see... This seems like a deck that could benefit from Hellfire Mongrel and cards of its ilk :)

Liliana's Caress and Megrim effects, are benefited greatly by Wheel of Fortune and other cards like that.

Go big with your creatures, try to find more effects that mess with everyone and streamline the deck a little bit more. As it stands now you have little to no payoff cards for your discard subtheme. Look for cards that care about the number of cards/cards of a type in all graveyards (e.g. Mortivore).

Alternatively you can go for the black infect package (Glistening Oil, Phyresis, Grafted Exoskeleton...) and activate Tymaret enough times to kill the table (in my pod that would be at least 15 times).

Oh! and for cost reduction for the king's abilities I can think of Heartstone. It's symmetrical though, so you may want to take that into consideration before you slam dunk it in play.
