Peoni Thank you. There are definitely a lot of things to try out. The part I'm having the most trouble with now is trying to figure out what to cut.

Bottomless Pit
Necrogen Mists

Notion Thief
Fate Unraveler
Force of Will

Caerwyn Thank you for the suggestions. Having alternate win cons defintitely sounds good to have.

Peoni Thank you for the suggestions. I forgot to ask about Notion Thief I definitely see the synergy with the wheels however I was wondering if I should be concerned about it lower damage potential on the wheels.
Currently I'm thinking of Black Sun's Zenith over Damnation Mostly because its reusable.

I am now wondering if I should also remove Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Oppression and double down on more mill mechanics.

Interesting suggestion MrDimir!

I haven't really put much thought into a group-slug discard strat. I think Oppression would be playable if it was a creature. Otherwise, playing it would be taking up a turn where I'm could be playing a creature or a card-draw spell. The closest thing to this effect on a stick is Cunning Lethemancer I believe (my research wasn't too thorough though).

Interesting stuff. I'll make sure to look out for more effects like this.

Oppression man. It helps you and hurts everyone else-I use it in my Meren deck.

love the deck - I have a similar concept (less self discard, more bounce) Mind crusher, Dream Breaker

possible includes:

Okiba-Gang Shinobi - heavy hitting discard, and resets Burglar Rat & its ilk

Nezumi Shortfang  Flip - instant speed discard, and once hand is empty acts as another The Rack effect

Words of Waste - pairs stupidly well with Geth's Grimoire. all the cards!

Painful Quandary - makes every spell hurt

Oppression - painful quandary's smaller, more angry brother

Paupers' Cage - aoe rack effect is good

Wheel of Torture - aoe rack effect, with the best flavortext pun ever

Bottomless Pit yet another aoe discard

Rackling - rack with legs

@ Coward_Token Thanks for the suggestion and checking out my deck. But I think Painful Quandary and Oppression would be better effects to do that if I was to take the deck in that direction.

Pain Magnification, Fervor, Rakish Heir, and In the Web of War are all decent red cards I run in mine, with Larceny and Oppression to add to the discard theme.

Chainer, Nightmare Adept is a pretty bread and butter reanimator strategy. The bonus is you save slot efficiency by having a discard outlet in the command zone. I'd also peek at the handful of "everybody discard" effects like Oppression Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists because Chainer plays well from the GY. You can also accelerate faster than normal by running Reanimate or Animate Dead or other cards that let you play from the GY for cheaper than casting cost.
