jadedflames - thanks!

I dont know how I missed Grimoire and Words of Waste in the list. They're actually in the paper deck - I've been messing with the actual 99 a lot of late. And you're right, they each generate some extreme value.

Mindlash Sliver is a recent include, and unfortunately I just haven't drawn it yet. The cost is just so low and Muldrotha lets me re-use it every turn so I thought it would be worth trying.

Right now my major issue seems to be...me. I make overly greedy plays. Last night I tried to use LED to get Muldrotha on the table...and she was countered. So I had dumped my entire hand, made myself entirely reliant on Muldrotha to recover even a little, and I lost the cornerstone with that counterspell. I eventually started to recover a little, but that was the real moment I lost that game. I'm even tempted to remove LED at least temporarily just because of the greedy plays it inspires from me.

But I have another concern that you might be able to help with, considering your success with Grixis discard. Discard punishers like Megrim are quite slow. While Muldrotha has a lot of resilience and could potentially grind out a game through sheer tenacity, waiting for discard triggers and Wheel of Torture effects to eke out a win feels very slow. Even with all of my hand disruption, other decks may simply outrace me to a win condition. Do you have any advice on closing out the game reliably?

Since you went full discard theme got a few possible additions for ya.

The mind slash would work great because of the token production you have.

Some card ideas for ya since you have a strong discard theme going on as well. These ideas can also be used as another win con in case opponents remove your critters that poison them.

Kingtalk: I was thinking about Underworld Dreams. How well does it work for you? Is there an opposite of Wheel of Torture, like how there's 2 racks?

I can't wait to really grind this in some games and see how well it turns out. The sadistic side appears. Who knows, might even move further down the path of darkness and add stax.
