Tasigur's Cruelty Discussion

I haven't thought about Deathrite Shaman . Its an interesting thought. Perhaps that gives us reasons to run some number of Fabled Passage too. I've wanted to replace waste not in the deck for ways that generate more immediate card advantage, and that could be it. I could see it being good but I haven't tested it.

As for Vicious Rumors . I kinda forgot about this card. It seems okay? I can see why it looks appealing, but discarding a card of their choice is a lot worse than you choosing. Maybe 4 thoughtseize, 4 duress, 2 vicious is fine for 1 mana discard.

Plaguecrafter seems good but I'd like to keep the main creatureless. I will probably cut murderous rider for just hero's downfall. Invalidating a lot of our opponents removal seems like such a strong upside for the deck.

Tasigur's Cruelty , I also forgot about this card. It seems fine as a 1-2 of since we aren't really filling our graveyard too quickly. It could be reasonably cast for 2-3 mana on turn 4.

Have you thought about Deathrite Shaman ? I am also brewing a similar deck and I am running four. DRS turns your spells in gy into fuel to deal addition 2 to their face, or exiles lands to generate extra mana. Also you aren't running any number of Vicious Rumors . I am running 4. It is the only 1 mana 'opponent discards a card' spell in the format which helps get the last couple cards out of their hand (Upside it also pings them for one). Also I like to run Plaguecrafter over To the Slaughter . I am not sure how frequently you turn on delirium, but plaguecrafter has its own little upside that when your opponent doesn't have a creature or PW down, it acts as another discard spell. Finally the last card I am going to mention is Tasigur's Cruelty . If we are going to have cards in our graveyards in Pioneer, I feel we might as well delve them. Let me know your thoughts on these couple cards I'd love to discuss the deck.

Some cards that I run in my The Haunt of Hightower deck that may be of use:

Reanimate or Animate Dead , depending on budget and collection; with so much discard you'll likely find some juicy targets in someone's yard. Same goes for Beacon of Unrest .

Liliana's Specter , hits the table with the discard, flying body just a bonus. I'd use this rather than some of your more expensive single target discard spells as this is multiplayer and its hard enough to punish the table playing discard.

Tasigur's Cruelty again, hits the table and you're not likely to be paying retail on this.

Geth's Grimoire Good way to refuel as you strip peoples' hands.

Bolas's Citadel better with Haunt as the lifelink there keeps this going but this is still an obscene card.

Rankle, Master of Pranks the haste, evasion and multiple modes are all good.

Waste Not More resources for you as opponents lose theirs.

More ramp is never bad; Charcoal Diamond / Wayfarer's Bauble plus since you've got Tomb/Coffers, Expedition Map sees that combo come together more frequently.

Not sure about Dismember , Hero's Downfall or Vraska's Contempt would probably be useful more often in this spot. Though I suppose if your meta plays a lot of indestructibles, then Dismember may be the answer.

i like the idea but i would change the strategy slightly, turn 1-3 ramp > play commander > opponents discard everything > play a some elf lords to pump your board.

so cards i would consider auto includes in a budget build Tasigur's Cruelty The Eldest Reborn Smallpox Pox Harvest Season Arterial Flow Death Cloud Burglar Rat Vicious Rumors Megrim Mausoleum Secrets

Megrim, just isn't that efficient, if you want the Megrim effect I'd suggest Liliana's Caress as there is a big difference between two mana and three. Mind Rot, his a similar issue, I'd suggest Tasigur's Cruelty or Delirium Skeins as an alternative. I also rather like Blackmail and Mire's Toll in discard decks, since both have the ability to hit lands. An alternative finisher might help too; Torment of Hailfire or Rakdos's Return would potentially fit. Norn's Annex isn't Ensnaring Bridge but it could fill a similar role, even at the cost of 4 life it probably saves you more than that in damage. Hope this is of some help, good luck brewing your deck.
