Shrieking Affliction Discussion

square711 on Lilianas discard punishment, need suggestions

1 day ago

Your deck has the same problem as most mono-black Waste Not / Liliana's Caress decks: all your cards are focused on discard, your wincon depends on discard, yet you seem to forget that players start the game with only seven cards and use them up faster than they draw. And once your opponent is hellbent (i.e. has no cards in hand), your deck does absolutely nothing.

If you really want to win by Liliana's Caress/Waste Not effects instead of doing what competitive discard decks usually do (The Rack/Shrieking Affliction, which is a much better strategy btw), you should splash red and replace your creatures (which are all really weak and overcosted, even for a budget casual deck) with spells like Burning Inquiry and Sign in Blood, which refill your opponent's hand to make your discard spells useful again. Some creatures do that for you as well, such as Master of the Feast.

I brewed a similar list that started as a minotaur tribal goodstuff and ended with an discard/enchantment subtheme also including some good demons and dragons, your list is actually VERY Similar to mine D:

Id recommend Anthem of Rakdos, Widespread Panic, Sire Of Insanity Shrieking Affliction Malfegor Key to the City

Also, ive REALLY enjoyed Everlasting Torment in my list, it deals with pesky lifegain decks, and due to neheb and friends having first strike, they take wither damage in combat far less that your opponents will, and after first strike wither damage attacking or blocking usually minotaurs come out alive :)

Blackmail, a full playset of The Rack and Shrieking Affliction since they are your main wincon, Funeral Charm, Smallpox, Necrogen Mists for a Liliana-lite effect. I love 8 rack and can help you more if you need it. Doomblade, Smother or Victim of Night

Check out my rakdos waste not deck Rakdos Discard Madness Punishment Ver.3

i actually went 4-1 at FNM and 6-2 before cut to top 8 at an IQ with it.

Here is the very first version i made of it Rakdos Discard Madness Punishment

Really took huge advantage of Burning Inquiry and madness cards like Alms of the Vein and Fiery Temper

having a damage spell like The Rack and Shrieking Affliction seal the deal on the game too.

8-rack is a deck that aims to kill its opponent with The Rack and Shrieking Affliction by using discard to get them empty handed and then hiding behind prison pieces while your opponent slowly dies.

A different direction you could take for this deck would be a heavier discard suite with Shrieking Affliction as a win condition; this deck is known as 8-Rack, read up on the deck and check the budget section for an example list. The Rack, Pox, Smallpox, and Funeral Charm (instant speed discard) are all fantastic cards to include in this deck.

While this deck may stray a bit from your original gameplan or vision for the deck, you'll find the list to be a bit more streamlined when focused on discard as an 8-Rack deck. Changing the deck to accommodate this plan is a bit more costly as well (nothing terrible expensive though), but could be worth it in the end.

All depends on what you want to do with the deck; good luck making your deck better, hope I could help you :)

Shrieking Affliction is worthwhile. There is a deck called 8 rack that uses both of those cards to great effect.

Bump in the Night could be Vision Charm to have modular options. Also could use more Fatal Push Any black deck needs it and you have fetches for on demand revolt.

Cry of Contrition could be Raven's Crime which turns dead lands late game into more discard. You could swap Augur of Skulls for Asylum Visitor. If both people are hellbent, it is free cards. You also have 7 copies of Darkness between MB and SB.
