Painful Truths Discussion

And I thought Hapatra Infect was annoying. Props to you for making the deck very powerful on a very reasonable budget. I am wondering though, does Soul's Majesty do a lot for the deck? Sure you can hit a couple of your bigger creatures to draw a lot of cards, but at that point, you've probably already won. Also, from what I see, you'll most likely end up getting 1 or 2 cards for 5 mana on average with the card. I would recommend tossing in Painful Truths instead since you can get 3 cards for 3 mana quite often since you have 4 colors to work with.
Otherwise, a very solid and powerful deck!

Vizier of the Menagerie allows you to cast colored spells with the mana generated by Mana Echoes, so can basically win on the spot with your commander providing the spells, and the Vizier is also a great card on its own.
Shard Convergence and Elixir of Immortality seem rather unexciting, I'd play Painful Truths or All Suns' Dawn over those.

Painful Lesson can be cheaply upgraded into many different things, depending on what you're looking for. Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood only cost 2 mana for the same effect, and Read the Bones and Painful Truths are strictly better for the same cost. Insult / Injury can also be an absolute game-ender, especially in 1v1 where you can wait until they tap out.

So I just saw this card a second ago. I immediately thought about putting this in a RBx Burn shell.
It is, so to say, never a bad draw:
- 3 mana draw 3 is great. We've seen Modern decks run Painful Truths. You draw 3 lands, too bad, but it means it's 3 turns you won't have to wait for gas.
- Draw 2 + Bump in the Night effect for 3 mana is really good.
- Deals 6 damage + cantrips is really good too.
Honestly, I don't see much disadvantage running this card in a Burn shell. It draws you card while burning your opponent if they don't want you to have them. And 3 damage is what they gonna take to the face anyways, so unless they really don't want us to have this lethal Boros Charm or Lightning Bolt their dude, this should go really fine for us.
