Read the Bones doesn't make opponents draw. I think you are confusing with Sign in Blood .

BW control generally involves discard spells. You can get some good ones with Duress , Despise , and Castigate . If your friends play mostly creatures, then Harsh Scrutiny is good too. Hymn to Tourach is relatively cheap, but it's very very very very strong, play it at your own risk of creating an arms race between you and your playgroup.

Removal spells like Mortify , Unmake , Anguished Unmaking , Silence the Believers , and Declaration in Stone are all fantastic and I would recommend them over murder or avenging arrow any day.

Healer's Hawk is definitely more of an aggro card, if you want an effect like that, I would recommend Vampire Nighthawk . Obzedat, Ghost Council is incredibly strong, as is Blood Baron of Vizkopa . Vona, Butcher of Magan is incredible too.

I love merciless eviction, but you should really only run one, I would recommend you play some copies of Day of Judgment , Languish , Wrath of God , and Ritual of Soot to get those wraths earlier and keep the board clear.

I cannot recommend enough some Isolated Chapel s, Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard s, Shambling Vent s, and Caves of Koilos . Fetid Heath has recently plummeted in price as well, but I don't know your budget.

You'll definitely want some card draw to refill your hand too. In these colors it comes at the cost of life, for the most part. My personal favorites in casual decks are Twilight Prophet , but she is ridiculously expensive, and Kaya, Ghost Assassin . Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , Damnable Pact , Dark Bargain , Read the Bones , and Midnight Oil .

Hope this was at least a little helpful!

Tarlfgar on Waste Your Combo Not

Darth_Savage I think Reforge the Soul would be an amazing addition here. I overlooked it because I only looked for cards with lower mana costs, I didn't even consider there can be a Miracle card that's suitable for my deck, thanks!

A very early version of this deck did feature cards like Whispers of Emrakul and Wrench Mind, but in the end these discards were not potent enough- Dark Deal or Reforge the Soul that you mentioned can cause a 7-card discard, and even Burning Inquiry is a 3-card discard for one mana.

After all, my intent is not to lock my opponent out of cards, but to make them discard a lot (and thus get creatures, cards and mana from Waste Not). Gnat Miser is a no-go for the same reason.

Sign in Blood might be a good addition here, it's very versatile. Seizan, Perverter of Truth would be even better, but it's a very costly creature- by the fifth turn an FNM game is usually over.

Do you maybe have any card suggestions for surviving before the combo gets activated? I haven't played against any control-heavy deck with it yet, even in playtests, so I'm not really sure what pieces could help. Thanks for your input!

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.

Dete on Underworld Coinsmith Pauper Commander

you could use Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Cage of Hands, Shackles and Mourning for repeatedly trigger Underworld Coinsmith.

Ashes to Ashes, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Angelic Purge, Afterlife, Snuff Out, Unmake, Pentarch Ward, Cho-Manno's Blessing, Blessing of Leeches are all really good and serve you as card draw/ protection or control.

maybe think on adding something like Pestilence or Shrivel/Nausea for boardwipes like effects.

Stick to this template when building edh:

~38 lands- use any dual lands, filter lands, pain lands, fetches, and shocks in your colors, using basics to fill in the rest. Tolarian academy on youtube has a great video on building edh mana bases

5 boardwipes- these should all be below 5 cmc (with a few exceptions like Cyclonic Rift, Decree of Pain and Merciless Eviction. DON'T skimp on these unless you're entire deck is built around creatures (Examples being Edric, Spymaster of Trest, or Seton, Krosan Protector)

~5 unconditional targeted kill spells. They should all be able to hit creatures, but you get bonus points if they can hit other permanents too or if they exile instead of destroy

at least 10 reliable and repeatable draw spells- These are the Rhystic Studys, Mystic Remoras and Phyrexian Arenas of your deck. these are not to be confused with unrepeatable cantrips such as Sign in Blood or Brainstorm. Cantrips should be included if you're looking for consistency, but should count as half of a card in your 10

At least 10 ramp spells- since you're in green, take advantage of Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Explosive Vegetation, Rampant Growth, Farseek, etc. If you aren't in green, use artifacts like Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Signets, Sol Ring, talismans and Darksteel Ingot. Just like with draw, you want permanent ramp and not things like Seething Song or Dark Ritual. The cheaper and more abundant your mana rocks in your color, the more competitive your deck will be. Most cEDH decks will run 12-15 mana rocks, using expensive cards like Mana Vault and Mana Crypt. In your case, you're using moxen

The rest of the deck should all work toward a common goal. Find out what your win cons are and the build your deck around them. Derevi is good with blink and combo, so find a strategy and be ruthless with your cuts. I would recommend making infinite mana and taking advantage of that, maybe with Helix Pinnacle, milling people out with Stroke of Genius, Whetwheel or Blue Sun's Zenith.

Hope this helps!

I use Glint-Sleeve Siphoner in an energy build to replace Dark Confidant. But I don’t think you want that here. Asylum Visitor is meh early on. Phyrexian Arena is also meh and doesn’t have a body on it. Dusk Legion Zealot can be a one shot, but cards like Sign in Blood would be better if that’s the route you want to go down.
