Strongarm Tactics Discussion

Looks like fun. Just wanted to put my comments in a place you can find them easier.

Not a fan of Ill-Gotten Gains , it allows your opponents to get back the good cards you forced them to discard earlier in the game.

Strongarm Tactics and Smallpox are card disadvantage for you. You lose two cards and your opponents each lose one.

Tree of Perdition seems bad, but might be pretty good with negative power creatures like Death's Shadow .

Adds? Necrotic Ooze , because activated abilities happen Angrath, the Flame-Chained , Burglar Rat , and Arterial Flow make your opponents' discards happen Sire Of Insanity and Mindslicer are pretty mean, but at least everyone is stuck in topdeck mode. If you want to be "fair" you could play Awaken the Erstwhile so at least people get some creatures when they discard.

Malfegor , enables your discard and kills stuff.

Liliana's Caress , and the more expensive Megrim , Waste Not , and Geth's Grimoire , since you are making people discard you should trigger something in the process.

Torment of Hailfire .... Oh, I made you discard your hand and you have no permanents left? I guess this is a Fireball .

@Darkshadow327 he wants to play discard reanimation, which is why he's choosing Scarab God, honestly it's a deck I've thought about playing.

Also I agree heavily with with the Painful Quandary , Vedalken Orrery (You're too black to play Leyline, lol), Windfall , and Oversold Cemetery ; especially the Quandary it puts your opponents in a lose lose situation.

I'm not a fan of Awaken the Erstwhile.

I also think that you could really use an Ashnod's Altar for some of those X spells to get a a better pay off.

I took at look at my Thought Scour Nath! (love for you guys to take a look at this) deck for some additional adds... here's what I got.

Strongarm Tactics is fun and thematic

Strongarm Tactics is a personal favorite for me in decks like this. Coupled with Dread Return and some cheap fodder, you can get some amazingly powerful creatures out early and cheap, while hurting your opponents.

Why no Nether Traitor or Nether Shadow?

I like what you have going on here, but not a single discard outlet? Maybe just one Collective Brutality, Strongarm Tactics, Last Rites or even Macabre Waltz, just in case you end up with Avacyn in your hand.
