So, my meta has an Azusa that wrecks my lands enough to never get me six mana for the Mikaeus so he was a dead draw the whole game. So, on that note, I removed Sadistic Hypnotist for Mind Slash. I found Mind Slash to be more cost-efficient, since it also lets me choose what I am discarding.

Bloodghast, Braids, Cabal Minion, Hell's Caretaker, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Nether Traitor, Sadistic Hypnotist, Mind Slash, Blasting Station, Corpse Dance, Curse of the Cabal, Smokestack, Mimic Vat, Massacre Wurm, Sepulchral Primordial, Black Sun's Zenith, Insidious Dreams, Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Attrition, Do or Die, Dread Return, Blood Artist, Words of Waste, Hypnotic Specter, Ill-Gotten Gains, Megrim, Mindslicer, Memory Jar are all options you could consider.

Memory Jar with Waste Not on the field is particularly dirty if you have your many doublers out and can drop your new hand onto the field. Bloodghast gives you a creature you don't even have to pay for to get back. Ill-Gotten Gains lets you run a second Dark Deal essentially. Megrim makes all the discarding you're doing kill them.

Found a good option for you! Mind Slash! Sac tokens to discard repeatedly as long as you have black mana!

If you have the gas to support it Mind Slash works well as a kind of targeted recurring Thoughtseize in the right deck. I know personally I love this card in my black EDH decks.

n0bunga are you certain that Nath's ability works that way? Because I think with mass discard Nath will still count the total number of cards discarded by all your opponents and then produce tokens accordingly. I guess it goes similar with cards that care about drawing, like Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and you cast, say an Opportunity and the dragon deals 4 damage.

Anyways, what about Mind Slash? Still gets your token back and you decide which card gets discarded. Also, Painful Quandary.

Thanks Keel11! I don't know how I missed Doubling Season ! Not only does it combo with Nath token generation, but it can catapult Liliana Vess to ultimate. Lets start with the easier choices. Doubling Season for Mind Slash, not so keen on sacking a creature just to get at one opponent. Rise of the Dark Realms for Bottomless Pit, trading an asymetrical spell for a symetrical. Now for the harder choices: Liliana Vess for Memory Jar, seems the Jar is win-more as far as discard goes. Awakening Zone for Elves of Deep Shadow, trading a pain elf for token-mana generation.
