Love the concept. Have you considered Neheb, the Eternal, Aggravated Assault, and Stolen Strategy?

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser,Etali, Primal Storm and Stolen Strategy could all be fun. My The Old Grixis Mill and "You burn, I'll pillage." decks have a play the good exile the bad theme that could support your discard strategy.

Yo hoyanader.

Naked Singularity is awesome but sadly that upkeep is just too much to maintain.

I've added Stolen Strategy to my Chaos deck and it's crazy fun...stole an Ulamog with it for the win :D

Totally agree with you about your assessment of Stolen Strategy. It's been a great addition. It just expands the options available for me each turn and is very on theme with using an opponent's weapons against them.

I'm reconsidering my stance on Grab the Reins. I think I've been evaluating it incorrectly. I'm still down on the fact it doesn't untap the stolen creature, but I actually think it's less of a Threaten effect and more of a Backlash effect that then removes the creature after it "backlashes". It gets around indestructible since it sacrifices the target. 7 mana is quite a lot for that effect but it does have the flexibility of being a reasonably costed Act of Aggression in a pinch. I'm thinking of trialing it. What are your thoughts?

Also thinking of trying Master Warcraft as another win con option. I can't remember if you've shared your thoughts on this card before.

I played Stolen Strategy again today. My favorite moment was Lapse of Certaintying a Sanguine Bond when the blue player was tapped out and the Karlov player tried to combo off. Hard counter to exile against a combo player from a Mardu deck. I let it go to exile just for spite because I didn't need it. Priceless.
