This deck forces your opponent to discard there hand. As they discard cards they are dealt damage, but they're not even safe when their hand is empty!
+1's and any advice is much appreciated!
I kind of believe that you need to put a card into this deck that will make everything you are doing by discarding, devastating. You do a great job of making players discard. Not as great of a job as dealing damage. I understand that the point of the deck is to make players discard. But what if you could do both??
I can't believe that I am going to give you this pointer. I've played this deck a few times and I hate being it's opponent. If you choose to take this advise I will absolutely hate this deck... I would like you to think about Liliana Vess
I think she would make a better Planeswalker than Sorin Markov , but I think that I discard my opponents too quickly. I'm thinking of removing Gnat Miser and Locust Miser . They don't really do much other than keep your hand size down, potentially forcing you to discard, but that doesn't help me if I don't have a Megrim or Quest for the Nihil Stone out yet. If I could get more cards like Blightning or Hellhole Rats that would help. I'm actually thinking of bringing back some of the cards in my maybe board to see if they can help dish out more damage!
I think I've found out the issue and now just need to fix it. I have too many cards that cause my opponents to discard and not enough that deal damage. In the end it means I annoy you very much by getting rid of your hand and forcing you to keep only what is necessary or needed, but I don't deal enough damage and then end up dying because of it. The Gnat Miser and Locust Miser are either coming out or their numbers are being reduced for a start and then I think I may add card:Liliana's Caress and Liliana Vess to help with damage.
Another idea to solve my problem would be to give my opponent cards... Howling Mine could do that...and then that could solve my issue of top decking my opponent and making them still discard for damage...the downside is that I'm speeding them up as well...
Quest for the Nihil Stone , Lavaborn Muse , Rackling , and Hellfire Mongrel all benefit from my opponent not having any cards in his hand. While Megrim and card:Liliana's Caress both benefit from my opponent having cards for me to make them discard... I think I'll try to find some middle ground on it, but at the moment it looks like my deck would work better with a Lavaborn Muse theme.
Wow! I've seen this card before, but never taken the time to actually read it! XD Painful Quandary would be awesome for this deck!.. Not only does it prevent my opponent's from casting spells, but I can make them discard! It would definitely help now that i m going for top decking my opponent instead of just making him discard for damage. I think I'll need a little mana ramp though to keep the deck competitive.
