Sanity Gnawers reads as a Rat, but is listed as Zombie Rat.

What about Sanity Gnawers?

A card I really enjoy in a discard deck is Hellhole Rats: it discards, deals damage, and has haste pretty well rounded.

A better option that the black cat could be Ravenous Rats or Rotting Rats - if you don't mind discarding yourself, because the card doesn't have to die to get the effect. If you keep the rat thing going with Sanity Gnawers and you can include Swarmyard <-- this could also cast reality smasher as well as Graven Cairns, Tainted Peak, Sulfurous Springs, Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace, or Lantern-Lit Graveyard/Cinder Marsh if you still wanted to SMASH!!

If you want to focus on discard, I'd remove the following: 1x Goblin Fireslinger, 1x Disentomb, 2x Dash Hopes, 2x Dragon Fodder, 4x Shamble Back,

and add the following: 2x Wrench Mind, 4x The Rack, 2x Duress 1x Despise 1x Gurmag Angler

Alternatively, you could run a small 'rat tribal' theme that discards your opponent's cards as your creature base instead of what you have now. Sets of Ravenous Rats and Pack Rat along with your deathtouch rats could be good in place of your other higher-cost creatures. Rotting Rats is another one that makes your opponent discard, but you do too. Sanity Gnawers also forces your opponent to discard and is in your colors, as well as Hellhole Rats. You certainly don't need to go the rat route, but it does sound like you want your deck to beat down while discarding your opponent's hand, and rats were the first thing that popped to my mind.

NOW YOU LISTEN HERE MISSY

THIS RAKDOS GROUPSLUG THING DON'T MESS AROUND

YOU GOT A GREAT COMMANDER CHOICE IN STORM CROW BUT YOU ARE MISSING SOME CLASSICS

Sire Of Insanity BASICALLY READS "FUCK YOU IF YOU HAVE AN ACTUAL WIN CONDITION"

Master of Cruelties IS STRANGELY PHALLIC BUT BEAUTIFULLY FUNCTIONAL IN A DECK WHOSE CARDS CONSTANTLY HURT EVERYBODY

Poison the Well IS HOW YOU ASSERT YOUR DOMINANCE OVER THE LITTLE BITCH AT THE TABLE. WHAT'S THAT? YOU'RE THE LITTLE BITCH? NOT ANYMORE

Rakdos Augermage IS HOW YOU DEAL WITH THAT ASSHOLE WHO HAD Rise of the Dark Realms IN HIS OPENING HAND AND HAS BEEN SANDBAGGING IT ALL GAME. ESPECIALLY DEADLY SINCE YOU WILL BE PERPETUALLY OUT OF CARDS.

Sanity Gnawers AND Hellhole Rats AND Ravenous Rats AND WHY DOES WIZARDS ASSOCIATE RATS WITH DISCARD?

Shauku's Minion AND Shivan Zombie AND Sootwalkers FOR TUMBLR CREDIBILITY (editor's note: do not play these cards)

Skull Rend WILL EVENTUALLY HIT A GROWTH SPURT AND JUST BE LIKE OUR AMIGOS Blightning AND Rakdos's Return WHO WE BOTH KNOW ARE GREAT CARDS

Spiteful Visions AND Underworld Dreams AND Fate Unraveler BECAUSE GOD KNOWS WE COULD ALL USE A LITTLE BIT MORE NEKUSAR.

Tsabo Tavoc BECAUSE ITS NOT FAIR THAT OTHER PEOPLE ALSO BE ALLOWED TO HAVE THEIR COMMANDERS. (editor's note: a potential commander along with Mogis or Kaervek, depending on how the playgroup is)

Citadel of Pain HAS THE MOST METAL NAME EVER

Furnace of Rath AND Dictate of the Twin Gods BECAUSE YOU AREN'T A LITTLE BITCH

Impatience AND Manabarbs ARE FUNNY IN THE SAME DECK

Repercussion : BECAUSE COMBAT IS FOR BONERS

AEther Flash SOUNDS LIKE JACE USING HIS ILLUSIONS TO SEE SOME TITTIES. Spellshock DOES NOT
