Shrieking Affliction Discussion

Sweet first deck! I'd add Shrieking Affliction as an additional "Rack", and maybe even other Mind Rot effects over some copies of Dreadbore/Terminate. After all, if they have no creatures in hand, they can't be played. Smallpox, Raven's Crime, and the like might be helpful.

Let me know if I can be of more help! Best of luck!

You likely want 4x The Rack and 4x Shrieking Affliction - there's a Modern deck called "8 Rack" - look it up for more suggestions.I'd also go 16 Swamp, 4xMutavault and 4xUrborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Ok I think I'm at a good place with this deck. I have Shrieking Affliction in there for multiplayer and dodging artifact hate but it could easily be swapped for the rack in a planeswalkers heavy meta. My idea is to bait the opponent into bringing grave hate then siding in Eternal Scourge and some grave hate of my own. Thoughts?

I'm not sure Pithing Needle would help, because The Rack and Shrieking Affliction both only have triggered abilities.

A cheaper version of Megrim exists in Liliana's Caress, if your going the discard route I'd also suggest Waste Not and Shrieking Affliction are good choices. Along the same lines Wrench Mind is normally Mind Rot but cost less to cast, or use Augur of Skulls. lastly Victim of Night in preference to Terror as it's restrictions are rarely relevant.

Ratchet Bomb is a decent answer to their win conditions (Shrieking Affliction and The Rack both have the same casting cost) for the budget-aware magicplayer.

Leyline of Sanctity is, as mentioned, a very solid answer. Aegis of the Gods for deck with white can be a suitable budget-replacement.

The Rack or Shrieking Affliction is a quicker play (though better for a long game) than Megrim, Necrogen Mists might be helpful to ensure a discard. Have you considered a madness sub-theme? Fiery Temper and Dark Withering are the cards that come to mind...

Also a mirror match, a match against 8-Rack or creatureless could go badly. Any deck packing enchantment hate in the sideboard will put it in game 2 as well and your enchantments are your wincons...
