You have so many wheels. Why not a Waste Not?

Maybe Abrupt Decay to justify running green? Waste Not is also a personal favorite in discard themed decks!

Looks good! Bottomless Pit, Oppression, and Waste Not would be good includes if you wanted more discard disruption

Ashnod's Altar and Altar of Dementia as a sac outlet. Waste Not is a card i recently added to mine. I can't believe you aren't running Victimize. Same with Buried Alive, its essential to the deck.Personally, i run Scourge of Nel Toth mostly because it can come back on its own without Gisa and Geralf.

Feel free to take a look at my version of this deckZombie Tribal

I've got a Maralen list (Maralen's Pact) that's fun.

An important side of Stax that is often overlooked is Disruption. Think Mind Slash, Bottomless Pit, Liliana of the Veil or Oppression. Cards like Waste Not will fuel this side with fodder. While Maralen herself creates a soft lock with these effects, Mind Slash specifically pairs well with Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos.

There'should also Resurrection. Sheoldred, Whispering One is great here, as is Reassembling Skeleton. Rise of the Dark Realms & Strands of Night might be worth a looksee.

Other cards I think you'Llanowar like are Empty the Pits, Yahenni's Expertise, Magus of the Coffers, Tempt with Immortality, & Nirkana Revenant.

ncon I'm glad you like the deck! Marchesa would probably be great at something like that, she's a house in this deck.

Sendaran Thank you for the suggestions! I usually avoid creature enchantments that aren't Rancor simply for the blowout potential, but Pemmin's Aura could be really good here. The Sigil of Sleep does seem really dirty with Vial Smasher the Fierce, and usually something I would try even if it was the only good target in the deck, but this list has become so tight in my mind that I can't justify a whole card only working with one other card. Umbral Mantle was originally cut because of the cost of untapping. I did actually make the decision between Ashnod's Altar and Altar of Dementia before, and Ashnod's won because, as it turns out, Ashnod was a woman. Though I might still add it if it can better replace a different outlet in the deck.I love Dire Undercurrents, and I'll reconsider Waste Not. The plan was to use Gwen as a rattlesnake, and I feel like a waste not on the battlefield would tempt me into making enemies. Thopter Spy Network was just a token maker, I never planner on drawing too many cards off it. Do you know of any good replacements in the colors?Mystic Remora is my baby. I know it's just a more restrictive Rhystic Study but it's much less threatening. The cumulative upkeep hanging over my head pacifies other players into just letting me have a few cards at first.
