Some card ideas for ya since you have a strong discard theme going on as well. These ideas can also be used as another win con in case opponents remove your critters that poison them.

Secondo me devi impostare il mazzo più verso il fare attaccare gli avversari tra loro e fargli perdere tempo per poi tirare fuori una finisher. Inoltre non hai nessun vantaggio dallo scartare, perché non hai cose come Liliana's Caress, wheels o carte con Madness, di conseguenza taglierei anche da quella parte. Quindi toglierei alcune delle carte tax che hai messo. Proporrei cose del genere:

  • Harsh Mentor -> Again, una tax abbastanza gratuita che però ti rende il tizio fastidioso #1. Non è ciò che vuoi, ti servono cose più subdole. Tipo Hunted Dragon.
  • Sire Of Insanity -> Spezza le tattiche a tutti, ma anche a te. Non lo ritengo utile, soprattutto perché non carte con madness, né carte sufficenti con flashback, emerge, ecc. Meglio un Combustible Gearhulk che ti fa pescare. In rosso. 6/6 first strike.
  • Dark Ritual -> Non è forte come Mana Geyser. Se non sei un mazzo combo, non te ne fai nulla di una carta così.
  • Hero's Downfall -> Ruinous Path e risparmi.
  • Rakdos Charm -> Nessuno dei sui effetti è così utile, se non forse esiliare il cimitero, but then again... Bojuka Bog?
  • Dreadbore -> Murder e risparmi.
  • Vandalblast -> Costa davvero tanto. Fai tu, ma non vedo tutta questa necessità di spaccare tutto. hai già molto removal per gli artefatti, potresti investire quei denari altrove.
  • War's Toll -> Heartless Hidetsugu è meglio non metterti un bersagio sulla testa grosso come war's toll. L'hidetsugu è più democratico.
  • Worn Powerstone -> Citadel of Pain perché la Powerstone fa schifo. Meglio una carta che gioca contro chi vuole fare il cheesy. Oppure Talisman of Indulgence.
  • Hissing Miasma -> Skyline Despot meglio avere più carte che ti rendono monarca che un side effect come questo enchantment. Se vogliono attaccarti, lo faranno comunque. L'unica ragione per cui invece Marchesa's Decree va bene è perché ti rende monarca.

Io tenterei di mettere tante carte che ti fanno rubare cose agli avversari, perché è un modo swag di rompere le balle. Ci sono così tante carte con questo effetto, che rischi di poter anche non mettere Insurrection, più che altro perché è difficile da trovare e costosa. Dico cose come:

Oltre a ciò, ti consiglio carte swag che sicuramente sono divertenti come:

Scusa se non ti ho commentato tutte le carte, ma sono un pelo di corsa. Ne possiamo piuttosto parlare quando ci vediamo.

Yea it hoses your plan entirely but if you're like empty or near empty handed, Spirit could just make it so at least no one else has cards too, so I guess you COULD play it.. eh.
Sometimes everyone having to no hands is going to be better than 1 other person that isn't you having all the cards in hand. Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler are all kind of typical cards to see in Wheel decks. Waste Not gets out of control.

I love the idea of this deck and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip is my favourite commander to play with! I would strongly suggest you throw in more punishment for discarding, like Bloodchief Ascension or the previously mentioned Liliana's Caress. Creature cards that synergise well here too would be Fell Specter for some more discard punishment and Magus of the Wheel as well as Jace's Archivist to force some bulk discard effects. I have a similar deck to this and have found The Locust God helps out quite a lot when you draw cards to pump out a good wall of chump blockers! Hope this help!

I really like the Crucible of Worlds in the side. Amulet of Safekeeping is another card i've been considering. I like the token hate and the countering it causes, but does it also stack with itself? Say, an opponent would have to pay for every amulet you have out? I can see how the Liliana's Caress can be beneficial in the Hollow One match up. How do you feel about the Waste Not in the same match up?

I like the card a lot. It's really good on the play when the opponent has to mulligan because kills their free scry, likewise it can be good against Serum Visions and late game when people hold onto lands. I've found the life gain beneficial.

I ran this list the other day New Pox. I think 8Rack is in a good position right now. Especially with decks like Howling Mine on the rise. 2 cards I think are worthy of running are Liliana's Caress on the side. It single handily hoses Hollow One and can slow Steam Kin Red down as well. The second SB is Amulet of Safekeeping. This thing is pure Storm hate but also puts in work against stuff like Mardu Pyromancer or decks that rely on Lingering Souls. I'm only running 1 in my list but after testing it, it's certainly worth more slots.

BackwardsChart on Crosis the not sure where I'm going with this deck

You're right, I'm not sure what you're doing with this deck either. A couple suggestions;

Embrace discard or dragons, I'd recommend Discard, It's more reliable and offers you more advantage. However if you did go with dragons I'd recommend going all in and chucking anything that isn't a Dragon.

For Discard, grab Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Tasigur's Cruelty and if you can get one Bloodchief Ascension. Also original Nicol Bolas is super strong in discard.

For Dragons I'd recommend Lathliss, Dragon Queen, and Demanding Dragon from M19, they are both strong picks and play into a Dragon strategy, shouldn't be too hard to trade for. Also, I know they are a bit pricey, but Herald's Horn, and Vanquisher's Banner The advantage these offer are worth it.

Anyway, good luck with this one, it's a strong foundation, just needs some polish.

ducttapedeckbox on Discard in edh/multiplayer

As others have mentioned, one-off discard spells like Blightning aren't particularly powerful in multiplayer games. Discarding becomes powerful when you're able to either repetitively force your opponents discard or do it in mass. It becomes even more powerful when you translate the card advantage into damage or other value.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer is built around cycling through players hands with wheel effects (Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Windfall, etc.) and gaining value / damage from Waste Not and Liliana's Caress-like abilities. While this isn't a top-tier strategy, it can certainly hold its own in most groups.
