Hi marypopins,

Your deck is a sort of hybrid of three other decks; 8 Rack, Owling Mine and Hollow One while there is some symmetry in how these decks function, the first two are control decks and the last is aggro. At the moment I'd say your deck leans more towards control, but without the heavier discard or counterspell package. Outside of Hollow One you aren't gaining any advantage from the cards you discard either in terms of recursion (cards with Flashback, or like Bloodghast and Gravecrawler) or play (cards like Fiery Temper or Flameblade Adept) and you are only running 3x of Hollow One.

Your main strategy then is based on your opponent discarding cards, so how to make that more efficient, First up Wheel of Fate with Simian Spirit Guide you can potentially cast Wheel of Fate turn one, which would put your opponent on a clock. Next, admittedly with a little more work Reforge the Soul, you would need some Scry effects, but that is manageable. Or a more recent addition Collective Defiance, the effect was even attached to a creature, once Barbed Shocker... If you really don't care (but you probably should) about letting your opponent draw then you may as well run Master of the Feast, as it's an under-costed evasive beater.

I do think it is possible to build a strong Red/Black discard deck and here your lack of recursion could be a safety net. Since you aren't running any recursive threats you can use cards like Elixir of Immortality or Cranial Archive to fold your graveyard back into your library, meaning at a push you might be able to win by decking your opponent, or at worst you reset your deck. Note that Mill is generally a terrible strategy for winning though.

Finally here are a few other cards for your consideration; Rakdos Augermage, Neheb, the Worthy, Kolaghan's Command, Jagged Poppet and Igneous Pouncer.

I hope I've given you some ideas, enjoy brewing your deck.

Now that Amonkhet with its new cycling cards was released, this deck can be significantly improved. I have tested your decklist as it was, and then made following changes:

  1. Obviously add new cycling creatures, such as Archfiend of Ifnir or Greater Sandwurm.
  2. Removals like Murder or Ichor Slick in this deck are bad, because they add creatures into your opponent's graveyard, which makes your Living End worse. You need to focus on removal which disables the creature on the battlefield, puts it into library or exiles it, such as Chaos Warp or Song of the Dryads.
  3. Turns out that this deck has much better manabase than it seems - mainly because of all the land-cycling creatures (Igneous Pouncer), which can search for dual lands such as Cinder Glade. Thus it is easily possible to play four colors. Adding blue will improve your changes of going off with additional cascade card Shardless Agent and tutors like Bring to Light.
  4. Replace Flayer of the Hatebound with Ogre Battledriver. As previous comment says, Flayer of the Hatebound doesn't work with Living End. So instead of damage, you'll have haste.
  5. Replace All Hallow's Eve with Twilight's Call - it's $100 cheaper.
  6. Add Emrakul, the Promised End as a backup plan - turns out that the deck has a lot of tutors, never misses a land-drop thanks to all that cycling, and has many card types in the graveyard. Emrakul is enough to win all alone.

Title explains all, if Trinisphere is on the battlefield, and I try to cycle with say Igneous Pouncer, will I pay 2 Mana to cycle or three. Consequently if let's say Defense Grid is on the battlefield, will that affect cycling as well, or no?

I'm not a big fan of Igneous Pouncer. It was never something I wanted to cast, and if I cycled it is was because I had extra mana, so I didn't need the extra land. I'd test a couple copies of Fling, because with the ETB burn you've got in here the damage could easily add up.
