I played around with a deck like this. You can cast Shadow of the Grave before you play One with Nothing so that it is on the stack. One with Nothing resolves, and you discards your hand and buff your creatures. then Shadow of the Grave resolves and you get your hand back, and can do it again the next turn!

New Perspectives can be a fun card but I find that it's a bit slow to be affective in most games and Shadow of the Grave is only good in some situations but thanks for the suggestions.

Defiantly add New Perspectives best card in a cycling deck and Shadow of the Grave great for cycling

Shadow of the Grave is a rare, and house rules listed above for this format only allow 4 rares, which are the 4 Archfiend of Ifnir.

Any reason youve not got Shadow of the Grave in? Does your massive favours if youve got things you dont particularly want to discard but might need to. Also cheaper than Wander in Death and its an instant

I've been building gateway and I think you need to go wider on the CMC slots. Playing Farm / Market and Striped Riverwinder give you 6 and 7 cmc slots, while being cards you realistically only cast for 3 or 1 mana. I would cut out 4x Glint-Sleeve Siphoner 2x Shadow of the Grave and 3x Spell Pierce to the sideboard. add in 4x Farm / Market 4x Striped Riverwinder (or Consign / Oblivion) 1x Vizier of Tumbling Sands.

Barren Moor isnt modern legal, if you want something that is still fairly cheap and has a similar effect you could try Desert of the Glorified it is a little easier to access than some other cycling lands. Archfiend of Ifnir, Faith of the Devoted, and Shadow of the Grave might also be a good investment into improving your cycling, not to mention they are also fairly cheap.

It's a delayed trigger (triggered abilities always start with "when/whenever/at") that players are allowed to respond to, but the play you're trying to make won't work.

The problem is that there's no way to insert a spell or ability in-between other objects already on the stack. New objects can only be added to the top of the stack. The Shadow of the Grave will either be on top of the delayed trigger or on top of the copy created by the trigger, meaning it will resolve before you actually discard anything. However, if you happen to draw another Shadow of the Grave from the copy of Fateful Showdown then you can respond with that one before the original Showdown starts to resolve.
