Not a big fan of the Necrotic Plague why not using Stab Wound instead?

Hi. This is pretty great. For some reason Stab Wound comes to mind as a card that could compliment the cruelty of this deck...

I'd recommend removing 1 copy of Stab Wound, the copy of Pharika's Cure and the Acid-Spewer Dragon for 3 copies of Geth's Verdict and replacing your Baleful Eidolon and a single copy of Blood Seeker for two copies of Gatekeeper of Malakir

TBH, I'm not sure what is the right theme to match with sith...discard doesn't feel right to me.

I think lightning, lightsabers, and force choke/telekinesis/mind control may be the way to go?

Force choke could be any cards that make players tick life, discard, sacrifice, mill, etc. every turn: Stab Wound, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, etc...extort to a lesser extent maybe?

Mind control could also be a fun sith-like trick (turning to the dark side aspect?). Snatch up an opponent's creature with red betrayal cards, send them attacking, then sac them to some engine within the deck.

Rule of two: Sith always have the "master & apprentice only" mechanic. Would also play with the mind control/betrayal stuff (the emperor typically had vader fight for him rather than get his own hands dirty). Are there cards that would allow you to force 2v2 or 1v1 combat steps? Crawlspace comes to mind...

Hope it helps!

I guess Prophet of Kruphix floating mana at the end of turn with Kruphix, God of Horizons? Though, that may be a little unoriginal. I suppose a Predator Ooze getting a Stab Wound or a Tragic Slip seems a little awkward.

Also, Stab Wound, Banewasp Affliction and Sinister Possession are fairly budget choices.

You may want to protect yourself with Propaganda and Frozen AEther effects as well.

Also, if you are going to run this as a discard deck, you will need to run more cards than just Despise. Also consider Wrench Mind and Duress.

I would suggest cutting Sangromancer, Agent of the Fates, Sanguine Bond, Stab Wound, and Grisly Spectacle for some of the other cards I have suggested, and whichever ones you select through your own research.
