Quest for the Nihil Stone

Enchantment

Whenever an opponent discards a card, you may put a quest counter on Quest for the Nihil Stone.

At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, if that player has no cards in hand and Quest for the Nihil Stone has two or more quest counters on it, you may have that player lose 5 life.

Where's the Megrim , Raiders' Wake , Waste Not , and Fell Specter ?

I also think Bloodchief Ascension , Quest for the Nihil Stone , Shrieking Affliction , and Library of Leng have major places in this deck.

Also have you considered Archfiend of Ifnir ? You do have a cards that make you discard as well.

There's a few others I'd suggest but instead I'll leave a link to my discard deck with Nath, it has some things I think you might like. Thought Scour Nath!

@Darkshadow327 he wants to play discard reanimation, which is why he's choosing Scarab God, honestly it's a deck I've thought about playing.

Also I agree heavily with with the Painful Quandary , Vedalken Orrery (You're too black to play Leyline, lol), Windfall , and Oversold Cemetery ; especially the Quandary it puts your opponents in a lose lose situation.

I'm not a fan of Awaken the Erstwhile.

I also think that you could really use an Ashnod's Altar for some of those X spells to get a a better pay off.

I took at look at my Thought Scour Nath! (love for you guys to take a look at this) deck for some additional adds... here's what I got.

You seem to be rather light on card draw. A couple card's I'd recommend are Geth's Grimoire and Syphon Mind which would stay on theme.

Other general card I think worth considering would be:

Also I'd say to try and squeeze in a few board wipes like Life's Finale , Mutilate , Crux of Fate or even Crypt Rats

Crosis's Charm , Cruel Ultimatum , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Dream Salvage , Perplex , Skull Rend , Fraying Omnipotence , Rakdos's Return , Wit's End , Quest for the Nihil Stone , Patient Rebuilding , Shrieking Affliction , Torment of Hailfire , And also there's lots of great specter creatures that would work great in the deck, probably better than a dragon sub-theme if you wanted to go full discard control.

Hey, to expand on what others have commented on about the manabase here's some budget playable lands to consider adding. All my suggestions will be $4 or less (most are $2 or less).

Other cards for the discard theme to consider adding:

Budget staples in Grixis colors to consider adding:

I offer more help. If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

Love the originality of this build. +1 just for that. Whatever creature you wind up using the cipher ability of whispering madness on I would also attach steel of the godhead on it as well. If putting them on Zur I suggest adding Diplomatic Immunity to the deck and have it be the first thing you Zur out and attach it to him. Hell, I’ld put that on Zur wether you plan on attaching the others to him or not. Also consider any or all of these ideas that punish them for all the discarding that will be happening:

The rest can all be zured out making it easy to punish for the discarding.

Since you went full discard theme got a few possible additions for ya.

The mind slash would work great because of the token production you have.

Thanks, it means a lot to me especially because I started this deck from scratch.

I'll consider the introduction of Quest for the Nihil Stone and/or Shrieking Affliction to take advantage of the pretty common situation in which my opponents remain without any cards in hand and I basically stop doing damage. Those two cards were in a previous unrefined version of the list but didn't make the cut. Now with a few games played I am starting to see this issue.

Thanks again for the feedback!
