Update 1 —Sept. 9, 2017
Have played, can confirm: Both fun and capable of killing players. Also infuriating to your opponents.
Time for upgrades:
- Diabolic Tutor -> Demonic Tutor : Straight upgrade.
- Lay Bare the Heart -> Transgress the Mind : Now that planeswalkers are legendary, LBtH loses some of its bite - so I'll try out Transgress the Mind instead. It should catch a lot of the 'walker and creature threats.
- Gauntlet of Power -> Guul Draz Specter : Every game I've had plenty of mana available, but not always enough things to do with it. Figured I'd remove one of the things that helps opponents running black.
Your deck seems extremely efficient in a 1v1 match, but not as efficient with more opponents (although still annoying). I think for larger matches, you should have board removal cards like damnation, not just individual removal. One of these cards would be fine since you can tutor it with liliana vess if really needed. Overall, the deck looks extremely fun to play and extremely annoying to play against :)

Thanks noobnein! You're right - the multiplayer game is the biggest challenge here.
I've included Decree of Pain as a board sweeper for that purpose (though pricey to cast) and Noetic Scales to continually bounce creatures back to their owner's hands (bounce your creatures back to your hand, then I make you discard them). I've also tried to favor discard that hits all opponents rather than single-target discard.
I think you've hit the nail on the head though - I might want to consider increasing my board sweepers to include Damnation (but my wallet!), especially considering the low creature count I'm running. I'll keep my eye on that as I playtest this.

I love this deck so much.Discard is probably my favourite mechanic in the game, and I love what you've done with it. I definitely want to put Noetic Scales in my deck. I have a discard deck based around Marrow-Gnawer in a rat-tribal deck. I'm very happy to look through this deck.
