Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted Discussion

You don't really include a win condition other than 3 copies of a hard to cast Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger . I would suggest looking into cards like Underworld Dreams , Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted , or Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage as a way to deal damage to your opponent in this discard theme.

Running around 10-12 instances of Surveil is probably going to be consistent enough to trigger Disinformation Campaign . If going this route, I'd cut your copies of Agonizing Remorse and even Mission Briefing to include more removal/threats. You're pretty clogged up in the 2/3 CMC slots, and extending your curve into 4/5 range would be beneficial to make your later stages of the game more impactful. Cards like Enter the God-Eternals , Nightveil Predator , and Lochmere Serpent are good budget options. Not sure if the splash for Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is even needed, seeing as it is kinda the black sheep in this deck as is.

After your opponent has no cards in hand, your discard effects end up being useless spells. Whether it is non-creatures like Underworld Dreams , Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted , and Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage , or creatures like Nightveil Predator , and Lochmere Serpent , making sure you have more threats to actually win the game is going to be crucial.

Hope this helps!

Kederekt Parasite might be good for an earlier play than Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted if you can get out one of your lands that has red in it. you could try doing adding things like Pyretic Ritual and Desperate Ritual to cast Bond of Revival a little earlier.

Olealfred24, Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted is absolutely going in there. Just haven't had the chance to update since WAR came out. Thanks for the suggestion!

I really like the idea of abusing sorin’s new passive! I have some suggestions

1: Ghostly Prison and Leyline of Sanctity don’t seem to be doing much. I think by turn 3 and four (when you would play ghostly prison or a topdecked leyline), you want to be playing your planeswalkers instead. I would go for early interaction instead, like Fatal Push and Path to Exile . I like the Kaya enchantment though.

2: I think you have better choices for Ob Nixilis Reignited and Chandra, the Firebrand . Especially nixilis. He’s kinda bad.

All of the following could be put in instead of nixilis or Chandra. He first few are kind of fringe choices that may or may not be good.

1: Angrath, Minotaur Pirate with lifelink would be insane, but he is a little spendy.

2: Chandra, Flamecaller ’s -X ability would also be crazy with lifelink, but she runs into the same problem than angrath does.

3: Chandra, Acolyte of Flame would just be there to buff up your red walkers

4: Gideon of the Trials could be a good defensive card, and he would he lifelink from sorin when he turns into a creature.

5: Jaya, Venerated Firemage would be an absolute bomb with sorin on the field.

6: Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted would be a better choice if you want at least one nixilis, since he synergizes with sorin’s passive
