Straight up, Megrim does next to nothing here. Unless you're runnign lots of wheel effects, dicard trigger stuff generally isn't good.

What is your goal for hte deck? Are you wanting to play lots of graveyard recursion or are you going for life gain/loss?

1 week ago I dont really know what to do. Im thinking of adding: Kunoros, Hound of Athreos Kambal, Consul of Allocation To Arms! Syr Konrad, the Grim Megrim Overwhelming Forces Devour in Shadow Beckon Apparition Collar the Culprit Dawn Charm

Any suggestions?

Last_Laugh, I definitely have Pain Magnification in my black/red deck.

Funkydiscogod, yes, Megrim does have more potential for interactions, but it also has a higher mana cost, and this deck does not have much potential to abuse Megrim over Liliana's Caress.

Daveslab2022, here is a link to the deck.

I like Megrim more than Liliana's Caress because it deals damage, not loss of life. There are more interactions with damage than life loss; my sister has a black/red/blue discard deck that uses Kederekt Parasite to put counters on a Quest for Pure Flame she would sacrifice in response to Megrim triggers after a Wistful Thinking to hit for 20 damage all at once.

So, what does the rest of the deck look like? That might help the answers.

Icbrgr, this deck used to contain Megrim, until Liliana's Caress was printed, but I chose the newer card for its lower mana cost and the fact that it causes loss of life, rather than dealing damage.

Depends on your deck and playgroup/meta... a 1/3 flyer circumstances could mean you could do a little bit more damage and have a decent blocker...especially if you have other creatures (like rats) and means to pump those creatures... but also is a lot simpler to remove by the opponent.

I would make the decision based on what the overall goal of you deck is and what makes it work.... if you are working with creatures than I'd embrace it.... but otherwise if your more non creature bases than I'd stick with caress and maybe support it with Megrim.

So, generally with this commander you want elves and things that benefit from mass discard. Waste Not and Dark Deal would be excellent additions and synergize very well with your commander. I would move Megrim to the mainboard and add Liliana's Caress. Painful Quandary is also a good addition. As for creatures Priest of Titania is one of the strongest elves ever printed and I will always play it in any and all elf decks. Mind Slash and Attrition are also super good with your commander due to the tokens you'll be making.

I'd swap Mana Confluence for Prismatic Vista and go down an Island to meet the 100 card count. I think this deck can run 36 lands after looking at it. I'd also slot Angrath's Rampage somewhere but the only things I could see is probably Megrim just because its a 3rd or 4th copy of the "discard = damage" effect. Maybe keep it in your back pocket for testing.
