Spirit Cairn Discussion

After last weekends debacle I've decided to shake things up a bit!
Let's see how things progress.

At the moment the deck is less focused as I want it to be casual but I could see it being made into either token swarm, draw/mill matters or lifegain so if you wanted to focus the deck around cards like Psychic Corrosion you just need to cut cards from other themes, if you do that I think focusing on tokens with the addition of cards like Bident of Thassa, Kindred Discovery , Coastal Piracy, Psychosis Crawler, Patient Rebuilding, Mindcrank, Altar of Dementia, Altar of the Brood, Undead Alchemist would be good
I am currently focusing on making the deck more self discard focused because its fun as hell and when else would you use Dark Withering, Cunning Survivor or Spirit Cairnbut the lifegain element has actually been incredibly strong so I am looking at making a lifegain shell with cards like Rhox Faithmender,Sanguine Bond, Necromancer's Covenant, Whip of Erebos

Looks like a fun build! I have a similar deck, and here's some things I would suggest adding:
Dimir Infiltrator/Drift of Phantasms/Dimir House Guard: These guys can all be discarded in order to get important cards to your game plan. I notice you have a lot of spells at CMC's 2, 3, and 4, so they should be a great fit!
Compulsion: You can now cycle any of your cards!
Cast Out: Cycles, and is a versatile removal spell.
Tortured Existence: All you need is one creature in your graveyard and one creature in your hand to get an insane amount of discard triggers with this card. It's a lot of fun!
Phyrexian Reclamation: This can get back a good creature, or at the very least allow you to cycle something again in a pinch.
Spirit Cairn: Another good token maker on discard in case you feel you need more benefits when you do cycle.
I've suggested 8 cards to add. If I was going to suggest as many to cut, here's what I would say:
Unburden: One player having to discard two is not very helpful in a multiplayer game. This will mostly just make one person your enemy.
Lurching Rotbeast/Sanctum Plowbeast/Winged Shepherd/Djeru's Renunciation: These will mostly end up being part of the deck simply because you can cycle them, which is a good sign that there are better options.
Absorb Vis: Same problem as Unburden. If you want to make one opponent your enemy, great. Otherwise, it exists because you can cycle it.
New Perspectives: When cycling, you typically do not end up ahead on cards. This means that you will rarely end up at max hand size, so this is an expensive draw spell.
Plea for Guidance: You have 4 enchantments, 3 of which your commander can go get you. It is not very helpful here.
Regardless of what you end up doing, this looks like a fun deck. Good luck!

Also, Spirit Cairn?

These are cards in considering for an unpowered Cube. I enjoy owning the cards I put in, so if I don't pull it or trade for it, chances are in not getting it. Anyway, what do you guys think of these?
