Myojin of Night's Reach Discussion

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!

Bedlam thank you for your thoughts, sister.
- Dark Deal does indeed make a lot of elves. I had avoided it because it let opponents draw, but you’re right that it potentially makes enough elves to almost be a wincon on its own. I’ll take another look.
- Library of Leng . I don’t have much in this deck that forces me to discard.
- ah Skullclamp . I agree it’s awesome. Which draw card would you replace though?
- Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists are table antagonizers. I’d rather have spikey discard than per turn effects. Plus those both make me discard as well. Herald of Anguish and Myojin of Night's Reach seem more appealing.
- I like the tribal buffs (particularly the draw effects) but what would you take out to fit them in?

This is an awesome idea. I incidentally found two mistakes in your list:
I'm very sure Tetsuo Umezawa is from Dominaria, still you have him listed in your Kamigawa compartment. His ancestor Toshiro was brought to dominaria by Myojin of Night's Reach and founded his own country there.
Also in your Kamigawa part, you didn't mention Kaseto, Orochi Archmage

Seems you can produce plenty of mana but you don't have anything to finish the job: Exsanguinate , Torment of Hailfire , Comet Storm , Earthquake , Pyrohemia , and Pestilence are able to get you there.
Need more mana? Mana Geyser has your back.

If MLD is acceptable in your playgroup you could run a few and play them when you stick a strong enchantment like Revel in Riches or Black Market to pull ahead. In that case play ones that destroy everything but enchantments like Obliterate and Decree of Annihilation.
Fervor and Goblin Assault aren't doing much for you in a control shell. I could see the need for a token producer if you were playing Smokestack and friends but on your current build it only creates a suicide grunt.
If you want to pursue the discard route I suggest Oppression, Painful Quandary, and Words of Waste, Waste Not, and Myojin of Night's Reach. If you're going for reanimator I'd suggest Anvil of Bogardan as well to get the plays going faster.

Specters are pretty lackluster (except for Liliana's Specter with flicker shenanigans). I think it'd be better to go goodstuff with demons etc. For the discard you'll have spells that affect all opponents, like Syphon Mind, Unnerve, Tasigur's Cruelty, Mindslicer, Cabal Conditioning and Myojin of Night's Reach. Better than puny overcosted flyers that only affect one opponent each time. If you really want the specter effect you can just run Larceny.

Well, when going for the CMDR kill, Mesmeric Orb is the card of dreams, where other cards aren't bad, like Vicious Rumors, they don't do enough to warrant me wanting their inclusion without the commander.
What should be kept is a lot of tutors, to fetch different cards, as well as a lot of ramp. Then a reasonably large hand disruption package, and finishing the deck off with some combos, and cards that do a ton to swing the board in your favor.
Unsure of your budget, and the power level you want, here are the cards I would add to increase the competitiveness of the deck:
(On a budget? Do nothing with the lands!)
Draw: Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, and Asylum Visitor (can top cards you don't want to discard), Library of Leng (tops cards you don't want to discard again... but in a different way), Necropotence
(On a budget? use control elements like Doom Blade, and removal in black instead of stax, some of the more budget stax is okay, but generally the more layered stax the better, so the less the worse each is. Removal is a good replacement.)
Vicious Rumors, Abyssal Nocturnus, Fell Specter, Guul Draz Specter, Herald of Anguish, Hypnotic Specter, Liliana's Reaver, Myojin of Night's Reach, Needle Specter, Scythe Specter, Sewer Nemesis, Stronghold Rats, Wei Night Raiders, Whispering Specter, Ghoulcaller's Bell, Darksteel Plate, Ordeal of Erebos, Raiders' Wake, Bontu's Last Reckoning, Anvil of Bogardan, Putrefaction, Painful Quandary, Megrim, Fraying Omnipotence, Rise of the Dark Realms, Torment of Hailfire, Liliana Vess.
Not sorry about the long comment ;)

Cyberseb you win with value ! With Myojin of Seeing Winds you draw tons of cards, with Myojin of Night's Reach every opponents discard his hand, with Tidespout Tyrant if you draw enough cards, you can clean the board every turn. (look at this stax version of cEDH channel
With Jodah I think you have to choose between the way of "spellsliging" or "creature". Than, you don't need to have a combo to kill all your opponents, just find some stax effects, some way to remove their permanents every turn. In my deck, i run a spellslinging (and less competitive) theme. With sunbirds invocation, Swarm Intelligence, Paradox Engine, Vial Smasher the Fierce, Omniscience. I run 10 wrath, Enter the Infinite with some Time Reversal effects.
