Wasteland Strangler Discussion

The first is a delver deck that plays very similar to a grixis delver. It tempos very well but does't have great reach without bolt and doesn't have amazing staying power without life game
The second uses Glory-Bound Initiate instead of delver and focuses more around hand control. This one is much more grindy and I feel like has better game against most decks
Both seem to plagued by bad hands and top decks, if you don't have all of the pieces the deck seems to have a hard time regaining momentum but if you start out in front they are very hard to throw off balance. They could just need more tuning but I think my initial concept is flawed. I normally have to mulligan to 5 or 6 to get a functioning hand and both struggle against aggro.
I really want to make sculler and queller work together so I'm also considering a taxes build using Wasteland Strangler to gain additional value. I'm worried that without either vial ( I have a $350 budget so vial is just out of reach) the deck just won't be up to par to keep up.
I would love any input's on the current lists or on the concept. I don't really want to play a true control shell and would rather play a more midrange or tempo build.
Thanks for any input!

They have done the reverse, using counters to link two abilities so that different instances can reference it, such as Mairsil, the Pretender or Karn, Scion of Urza. They've also made cards that reference any exiled card, such as Wasteland Strangler or Mirror of Fate. Having an open ended card that would only care about cards it exiled, but not how they were exiled, would probably require the rules to be rewritten, and as such would have to be a major mechanic of a set.

If you've got the Scarab God eating guys out of graveyards, why not a couple eldrazi to put them back? Blight Herder, Ulamog's Nullifier, Ulamog's Reclaimer and Wasteland Strangler all have useful abilities and let you reanimate an opponent's creature a second time.

Awesome, +1. But I think you should make it revolve around stuff exiling the opponents' cards temporarily (like with Flickerwisp or Tidehollow Sculler) then putting it into their graveyards with Wasteland Strangler or similar cards. I'm going to do that right now actually. Thanks

When you cast Kozilek, Butcher of Truth it's draw four triggered ability triggers and is put on the stack above it. Your opponent can then either cast Counterspell right away or let you draw the four cards. If they cast Counterspell right away, Kozilek will be put into your graveyard and it's shuffle ability will trigger. The overall effect will be that it shuffles your full graveyard into your library then you draw four cards, potentially drawing cards that had previously been in your graveyard. If instead they allow you to draw four cards first, they'll avoid you potentially drawing cards from your graveyard, and still have the opportunity to cast Counterspell to prevent Kozilek from hitting the battlefield, but they risk you drawing a Counterspell yourself, or otherwise being able to force your Kozilek through.
Note that this is different from enter the battlefield triggers, like Wasteland Strangler, which will not trigger if the creature spell gets countered.

Something of note Grinning Totem, Sadistic Sacrament, and Jester's Cap exile from their library which does not give Tariel, Reckoner of Souls any targets. These got me thinking though and I went and looked at the eldrazi processors. This idea is really janky but you are getting your opponents best creatures if you do this.
Blight Herder, Mind Raker, Ruin Processor, Ulamog's Despoiler, and Wasteland Strangler all work for this plan. I want to emphasize that this is taking jank level to over 9000 but it would allow Grinning Totem, Sadistic Sacrament, and Jester's Cap to give Tariel, Reckoner of Souls some targets.
