Vile Consumption Discussion

Solemnity , after Zur the Enchanter , is the most important card in the deck, as it breaks cards and molds several directions the deck can go

Combo1 Requires Solemnity

Combo2 is using Night of Souls' Betrayal , because I don't know if Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite would be better (I don't lose my lands, but it costs WAYY more mana)

Combo3 Is missing a card that i dont have yet - Aura Thief - . Killing aura thief is really simple in the deck, with outlets like Vile Consumption , Ashnod's Altar or any wrath effect

Cards in the "Other" category are mainly there to help other cards in the deck and possibly mitigate some negative effects from opponents. As an example, Crucible of worlds enhances aura fracture and also is a protection against land hate

I know I have a infinite mana combo in the deck, i Just haven't decided what mana sink to use

For the format of the deck put casual, since it's not modern legal, but, I assume, you want to use as much modern cards as possible.

Then, I also assume that you don't want to spend a lot, so I'll try to propose low cost cards.

You have 16 things that do things when your opponent discards something, but only 10 cards that force your opponent to discard and 8 of them are easily destroyable creatures that also cost a bit too much mana for what you want them to do.

I'd suggest cards like Burning Inquiry, Inquisition of Kozilek, Duress, Despise, Raven's Crime to make your opponent discard

I'd also suggest cards like Dream Salvage if you want need to draw cards or Crypt Incursion if you want to gain something

Personally I don't like Vile Consumption. It works also on your creatures and does nothing if your opponent doesn't play creatures or has only big things (if I have a 5/5 I'd pay one life cause it will make you lose 5). Do you want something that lets you destroy some creatures? Use Fatal Push, Murderous Cut, Doom Blade, Lightning Bolt or stuff like that

Since you make your opponent discard and have only few cards in hand, you could add Shrieking Affliction nd Liliana's Caress

Last thing: 25 lands are too much. Just reduce them and add some shock lands (Watery Grave, Blood Crypt, Steam Vents), or check lands (Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Sulfur Falls). And, if they work well, you could also cut Thaumatic Compass  Flip

That deck is simply awesome, it can do so much and use my favourite colors. I made my own version of it, I'm highly inspired by yours, but there are some cards that I simply prefer and/or don't fit my budget.

So no Moat, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Ravages of War Nether Void.

Instead I've added No Mercy, Vile Consumption, Catastrophe.

Could Painful Quandary be a good replacement for Nether Void and Island Sanctuary for Moat?

Ok so have you considered the other 2 pacts in B and R to work withHive Mind? Slaughter Pact won't target most of your creatures, and your opponents can't counter each other pacts so it becomes a "kill each creature and all non-black players lose" situation with hive mind. As for Pact of the Titan nobodies going to really gonna be able to do anything with said 4/4 giant token if they don't play red in their deck.

Also, two really low cost enchantment to run with this type of deck is Vile Consumption and Breathstealer's Crypt. Vile Consumption becomes an immediate clock against any deck with tokens or high number of creatures, and Breathstealer's Crypt essentially lets you know what's going in people hands and gets rid of creatures. Not to mention they draw the card still before being forced to pay 3 life and discarding. And I don't think anyone wants to pay life when facing a Nekusar build.
