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.

I like this deck; I'd recommend some changes though. Adding some more mana rocks and/or other ramp options helps this deck's speed a bit. Cards like Sol Ring, Jet Medallion, Thought Vessel, Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual could be considered.

You already have some nice draw options, but in mono-black I usually go for Underworld Connections and/or Phyrexian Arena no matter what other options I have, because these are so reliable; they don't require you to do anything in order to work.

Hymn to Tourach and Mind Twist are great discard spells. Paupers' Cage, Rackling, Wheel of Torture and The Rack all have great potential to damage opponents for having too few cards in their hands. Bloodchief Ascension and Painful Quandary are especially powerful in a deck like this.

Hope any of this helps; good luck brewing and playing!

I have nothing to add, I just wanted everyone to marvel at the beauty that is Wheel of Torture's Flavor Text

Nethereon on Rats and their Patron: 1st Budget Build

Concise list of considerations:

-/+ Dump Mind Twist and add Torment of Hailfire HOLY CRAP, do I love this card. It gets around so many things plus it hits every opponent.

Let's talk about your mana base for a second...

Thirty two lands? Even for a very cavalier spell slinger deck, that is a very low amount to play. I play a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck on 36 and struggle some times to reach a critical mass of mana/spells. Don't fall into the trap of "I'll cut a land for this cheap spell; it'll be fine." Again, math and probability will not be on your side in the late game, not unless you're willing to invest in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Coffers. An alternative might be to run Crypt of Agadeem but it's really no substitute for those lands.

Lastly, jam a Bojuka Bog or a Scavenger Grounds or both in there for graveyard hate, along with your choice of Strip Mine, Ghost Quarter, and/or Field of Ruin because if you can't have your Crypt or Coffers, why should they?

Hope this helps, good luck!

alright, so I did some more digging - I've been kicking around a similar deck idea for a while. here's some of the stuff you might be interested in:

Pain for everyone:

Citadel of Pain, Copper Tablet, Power Surge (read the errata for this one, it makes more sense, Shadows of the Past, Pyrohemia, Pestilence, Dark Suspicions (or Bulwark, depending. kinda mutually exclusive), Rivalry, Skullcage, Wheel of Torture, Iron Maiden and Circle of Affliction

No creatures for You!

Death Pits of Rath (which couples well with Pyrohemia and Pestilence from earlier), along with Circle of Flame, Heat Stroke, Magmatic Core, Mudslide, Wave of Terror, War's Toll, Storage Matrix, and Noetic Scales.

Punishment and protection

Pia's Revolution, War's Toll, Bitter Feud (kinda a furnace of wrath - but only for those two against each other), Defense Grid.

probably some stuff in here you considered already, just figured I'd sift through this stuff and see if anything was to your liking
