Mind Slash Discussion

Hey. Cool deck. While I'm not used to seeing this version of Rhys be used as a commander, I'm glad I took a look.
A couple elves I would recommend for this deck are Copperhorn Scout and Joraga Warcaller. The warcaller works well with your strategy & will make your elves less susceptible to dying to combat damage. The mana elves you run can make his multikicker get pretty high. The Copperhorn Scout can give you more mana to use on your second main phase or give you double the life from Wellwisher each turn.
A non-elf I would recommend for this deck would be Elvish Guidance. Essentially makes the land a Gaea's Cradle for your deck without the price tag. Speaking of which, Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip as well as Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would go a long way to helping those X-spells in your deck.
Not sure what I would recommend to cut to make room for all of these, but I will say I'm not sure how effective your discard strategy is. I get denying cards can be powerful, but I feel it splits focus from the deck. So I would recommend cutting Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Mind Slash.
Oh! Just thought of a couple more elves. Elvish Visionary (draw 1) and Generous Patron (draw 2 when you resolve its support on opponents' creatures) can give you some added draw for your deck while also giving you an elf in play to add to your elf count.
All right. I think that's all I have right now. Again, love the deck list and apologies for not offering more options to cut. Anyway, +1 from me for sure.

Sadistic Hypnotist, Augur of Skulls, Noxious Toad, Yarok's Fenlurker, Black Cat, Mind Slash, Oppression, most specter creatures, Dark Deal with Maralen of the Mornsong then stop them from tutoring somehow. like ob nixilis or i use stranglehold with red. i use these effects in a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker deck

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.

The above-mentioned Sadistic Hypnotist is also one of the best cards to put in a Nath deck.
Also the new Garruk, Cursed Huntsman fits any creature based deck quite nicely since it gives your creatures permanent trample and +3/+3 if you manage to pull it off. And it's not very hard if you have any sac outlets. Mind Slash and Attrition both work wonders with Nath.
I have my own version of Nath here if you want to take a look. Backstreet Elves

I don't think that Deathbringer Thoctar is worth it. He is simply to slow and isn't on the same page with what the rest of the deck is trying to do.
I also don't think that Whispersilk Cloak or Swiftfoot Boots are worth it. The likely hood that you are going to draw them is slim and for little reward. If you remove all of what I have mentioned you have room to add either (or any combination of) Shrieking Affliction or Black Vise . Since you are making them discard, hopefully they will eventually not have a hand and these will be a huge win condition in a single and multiplayer game.
I'm not sure that Mind Slash is worth it either, as the only card you have that you can freely sacrifice is Reassembling Skeleton . Instead I would recommend adding 2 Waste Not as he will help you strengthen your board or hand. I realize this is in your maybe board, but I think your main board could very much so benefit form having at least 2 Waste Not . It might even be worth it to remove ravens crime if you replace it with Shrieking Affliction or Black Vise .
I also so that you have removed Slaughter Games and I don't think that was good.I think that this deck would very heavily benefit from 3 Slaughter Games in your sideboard. If you lose the first game, sideboard them in and take out something important.
It might also be worth it to try to squeeze in some Raven's Crime .

This is a fun little deckbuilding constraint.
I did a Gatherer search, and found there are a couple different sacrifice outlets you can use. Here are the best ones from that list:
- Makeshift Munitions - with a cost of 1, this is more efficient than Mortarpod
- Marsh Flitter and Mogg Raider - both allow you to sacrifice Redcap as many times as you want without a mana investment, though they are both dead cards without Redcap on the field.
- Mind Slash can be problematic for opponents, but its activation mana cost is fairly restrictive.

Neato! Lots of elves and such, but I wonder if getting more opportunities to let your commander shine via creating discard opportunities would be good. I think I only count 4 things that cause discarding. Anything to make the most of your commander seems like a good strategy. If
I run Grave Pact to further have big creatures I can't handle disappear from my opponents, and your sack outlets with tokens can do that nicely. Putting some recursion like mortilus suggests will help make your token army, and thus swap some elves for discard effects. Hypnotic Specter can provide some damage and discard. Liliana's Triumph is cheap and works well with some of what you got. Mind Slash speaks for itself, sorcery speed unfortunately though. An expensive but guaranteed stranglehold on a game unless hard countered is Myojin of Night's Reach .
bushido_man96 makes a good argument for forcing draws and then they discard at end of their turns. I prefer to not allow others to draw though, usually because I see a lot of Reliquary Tower s and and the likes. Also regardless of the discard amount they get to choose which cards the keep. Limiting their options works better in the long run I find.
Also is Crypt Ghast allowed with that commander? B/W in its ability.
Hope these help!
