Darth_Savage on Waste Your Combo Not

Some thoughts...

Reforge the Soul, would give you another Wheel of Fate effect.

Sign in Blood, says target player, you can use it on yourself or your opponent, or have it on a stick Seizan, Perverter of Truth.

Barbed Shocker, Incendiary Command and Chandra Ablaze, don't cause a draw of 7, but do discard hand and draw the same number of cards, or 3 anyway.

Gnat Miser, reduces a players max hand size, Kederekt Parasite hurts them when they draw, as long as you have a red creature, enchantment, planeswalker or artifact.

Liliana's Caress, deals damage based on discard, Runeflare Trap does it based on draw.

Tasigur's Cruelty, has delve and discards 2 cards, though Wrench Mind exists and with a little work Whispers of Emrakul.

This is just off the top of my head (to be fair I have a deck which plays in this space Grixis Owl-ing Mine) so there are probably more... Hope this inspires you, good luck brewing your deck.

Darth_Savage on R/B draw

Kederekt Parasite, only works if you have a red permanent (Artifact, Enchantment, Creature or Planeswalker), you don't have any. Your playing in a similar space to Owling Mine (Ebony Owl Netsuke) decks, but wanting to leverage discard, so Gnat Miser might make more sense as a 1 drop creature. There are a couple of 3 drop creatures which are worth considering too Master of the Feast and Adamaro, First to Desire. Lastly here are a couple of spells that cause hand discard and draw; Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fate and one that plays well with Burning Inquiry if you keep it Runeflare Trap. Hope this helps, good luck with your brew.

johnkarpuk on Jhoira Weatherlight Captain - Commander's Quarters

poliscrusher you're totally right! This deck goes nuts. I took a modified list to my LGS and this happened: I had out Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and enough of the cost reducers that I was ready to go off. The guy next to me saw Aetherflux Reservoir in my hand and was ready to scoop. I played 20 artifacts, then bounced all of them back with Rebuild. One of my opponents floated a red mana with Pyromancer's Goggles right before it got returned, and then realized how many cards I had in hand and cast a Runeflare Trap. R.I.P. me :(

Boza on New Classifications to Card Types

There are actual Trap cards in the game - Runeflare Trap. To create an new subtype...

I had the idea kicking around of a new Conspiracy-type draft matters card that forces other players in the draft to do it differently. Something like:

March on
Sorcery - Order

When you draft this card, the player you are passing to next will choose a card to give you from their pack. You give them a card from your next pack.

Create 3 1/1 white soldier tokens.
Choose an opponent.
That player creates 3 1/1 white soldier tokens.

I do think that getting a bit more red in the deck would do it well.

There are some rather cheap lands that can help you splash more easily for at least Toil // Trouble and Runeflare Trap, which both should be great in this deck. I would at least add 4x Dragonskull Summit

Nice idea, let those blue draw decks suffer ;)

Sign in Blood seems to be a perfect fit for that deck, you can target your opponent or dig for your combo pieces.

Burning Inquiry wouldn't be bad either to make your opponent draw.

Toil / Trouble, Runeflare Trap, Sudden Impact and Gaze of Adamaro could speed up the burn.

Other worthy mentions could be:Wheel of Fate, Collective Defiance, Molten Psyche (super sweet if you happen to have 3 artifacts on the board), Incendiary Command, Reforge the Soul, or even Barbed Shocker.

Xica on So, You're a Hollow One Yea? (Budget)

Don't wanna be rude but what is the reason behind the mainboard One with Nothing? is the local meta overrun with Ebony Owl Netsuke/Runeflare Trap meme decks?

If the reason is the price of Street Wraith, you can try Edge of Autumn, or even Faerie Macabre which can be a really good maindeck card to pick up some percentage point against Snapcaster Mage, Lingering Souls & all sorts of graveyard based decks in general.
Both Faithless Looting & Cathartic Reunion live or die by the free cycling/discard effects, as they are badly NEEDED to make any of the decks hallmark explosive multiple Hollow One plays.

And if you can't find a green source Ancient Grudge, Abrade seems to be a strictly better spell. As the second mode is very relevant, it can mean a 2nd playset of removal to slow down storm, or it can be useful in the mirror, or against humans, merfolk, death & taxes, even if they didn't get to their vials.

Ratchet Bomb can only do its Engineered Explosives impression if you have removal to survive long enough, which tends to require being a control deck. Thus its mainly run in decks like skred, that don't play a second color, and can defend themselves long enough to be able to effectively utilize it.

Bomat Courier is a pretty problematic card, it gets stonewalled by anything, and Hollow One decks simpyl don't have the board presence early game to force the opponent to choose between blocking them, or some stronger creature, and once your opponent realize the combo with One with Nothing, those cards will be exiled after any removal spell, thus all those fine Bloodghasts & Flamewake Phoenixes will go to waste.

(and you have no way to turn on Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, which is a great problem if you want to use her, even cards like Jaya Ballard, Task Mage would do more good... (and she is a large liablity in the current removal heavy meta), maybe use something like Infernal Tutor in her place, that card seems to be good in grindy mathcups, it allows you to find second pieces of cards, and the deck lives by doubling up on Hollow One or Flameblade Adept - or it can find the answer you must find, if you get empty handed in grindy game)
