Mind Rot Discussion

I think you need to attempt to balance your creature curve, maybe add some more vampires. Some of the best vampires are 2 and 3 drops.

Assuming you bought the EDH deck - I'd add back in Captivating Vampire, Stromkirk Captain, and Blood Artist. They're all just too good at their CMC not to include.

Other Budget-friendly upgrades - Yahenni, Undying Partisan is very reasonably priced and is one of the best 3-drop vampires. Voldaren Pariah  Flip is pretty cheap and her ability works particularly well with the vampire tokens generated from Edgar's eminence ability.

My favorite non-budget vampires are Olivia Voldaren, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Vona, Butcher of Magan and none of them are really outrageously priced either. Necropolis Regent will win games if it's let to live and it just got a reprint.

Get rid of Mind Rot. Tidy Conclusion isn't worth the CMC with the number of artifacts you run. Armillary Sphere - I just don't see the value. I'd run Burnished Hart any day over it.

Fraying Sanity works when the card is put into the graveyard from anywhere. You should add black, and run some discard effects. Harsh Scrutiny Duress Lay Bare the Heart Mind Rot are all solid. This would also give you access to good removal which you will need. Walk the Plank Essence Extraction and Fatal Push if you can get them.

I'm not sure I like the Spirit/Arcane synergy here. Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse cost 6, and I feel it may be too slow (I may be wrong). Without this synergy, you could use cards like Duress, Mind Rot, Mindstab or Ravenous Rats, instead of Sink into Takenuma and other arcane taht I feel are too.. unneficient. Also, you can use Doom Blade as removal, but I would probably look for -2/-2 or low cost removal, cause you mainly need them in very early game.

As noble Nezumi Shortfang could be an interresting option.

Oh, and if you want to be evil, you can play Rancid Earth and side board Contaminated Ground. I always feel that's so not fair to screw lands XD

Far out Mandalorian! Thank you so much! This is a huge help, I was struggling but with this i should be able to get this deck flowing magnificently. I was kind of just expecting a sentence or two of advice and a few card recommendations but you really put in to help me get this deck running. Cheers!

Some of the cards you mentioned I already have (such as Mutilate, Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Duress, and Nightmares pouring out of my ears) but I dis-included them here just because I was using this list to decide what cards to buy.

Some others like Liliana's Caress, Hymn to Tourach, and Shrieking Affliction (I do have one of these but wanted more), I kept out either because the seller didn't have them or I left out to cut costs a bit. (Liliana's Caress is $8 ea! Why I went for Raiders' Wake instead, though it's CMC is higher)

And then there's those cards like Zombie Infestation, The Rack, Waste Not (far out that card is good) and Faith of the Devoted that I somehow never found when researching discard cards and now I feel I must hunt down these cards right away.

I also now totally see what you mean with Brain in a Jar, Tempt with Immortality, and Blood Tribute. Especially Tempt with Immortality I never even realised I was giving their discards back facepalm. Though I've already ordered those cards they'll fit fine in other decks I own so no issue being rid of them.

I was also wondering what's your opinion on adding some cards I already own such as Consume the Meek, Pestilence Demon (Mono-black can work wonders with him, tho it can also obviously be a detriment), Liliana's Reaver, Jar of Eyeballs, Wight of Precinct Six, and Crypt Incursion. Although Crypt Incursion could result in lofty amount of life, it also kind of ruins the synergy of cards like Guiltfeeder but in the other hand denies possibilities of opponent's getting their cards back and could even make Tempt with Immortality more viable.

Another thing I was worried about was that besides Creeping Dread I don't have much consistent opponent discard sources. I did originally consider Cao Cao, Lord of Wei but my seller didn't have it and I do prefer to avoid spending $5 on one card (there are exceptions of course). Other than that I just thought of adding more discard spells like more Mind Shatters, and now, adding a few Unnerves. I do own heaps of Mind Rots but they down seem very CMC efficient. Also adding some of these cards (which I plan to do) will return my issue of deck size. What do you think I could replace? What's worth keeping? What doesn't contribute enough to warrant keeping?

Sorry I feel like I almost just wrote an essay question for you to answer, but I feel as though you probably enjoy this stuff ;P

Again, thanks soo much for your assistance, this is the first deck I've made that I'm trying to make perfect so I really appreciate the help in getting it there. Cheers!!

How about replacing Mind Rot with Unburden? Same cost same effect, but also has cycling just in case you need draw power.

Mind Rot is a solid reprint good against control, if you side black in game 2 might be worth a look

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.

multimedia, did you consider trying out Heartless Pillage ? I'm not sure how it fairs in standard, but Mind Rot + ramp seems to be a wonderful combination. Not as powerful as Blightning for sure, but still.
