Perfect Strategy:

Card Explanations:

  • Blackmail: A card deceptively useful, very handy in this dedicated deck. The opponent shouldn't have usually more than 3 or 4 cards in hand, so this hits everything, including lands. When everything has to be discarded it doesn't matter whether they hide something or not.
  • Hymn to Tourach: Because Wrench Mind is "Meh", let's go Legacy singing some Hymns! This card is nuts, and Turn 2 Hymn does a lot of damage thanks to the random factor. For added fun, make the opponent shuffle his/her hand and choose the cards him/herself.
  • Inquisition of Kozilek: Nobody expects the spanish inquisition! The poor-man's-Thoughtseize, more useful in early game than in late game, is still better than Despise and Duress, I believe.
  • Leechridden Swamp: Damage dealer for the late game, when you have lots of mana and few things to do with it. When the game stalls, this card shines along The Rack.
  • Nyxathid: A heavy hitter for just 3 mana is too good not to include. At its potential 7/7 this can easily swing a couple of times and finish the game, or it can endure a couple of hits in the rare event that the opponent managed to cast something bigger than a Llanowar Elves.
  • Painful Quandary: Finisher. Puts the opponent under lockdown, giving you time to plan and hit through combat damage and the enchantments.
  • Raven's Crime: An elegant discard card that uses those spare lands that fill your hand in the late game. You can't choose the card being discarded... no, you can't, but when the opponent's hand is falling apart like leaves in autumn... choosing is not a priority. Best played in Turn 3, after an Inquisition of Kozilek and a Hymn to Tourach.
  • Sewer Nemesis: One of the latest additions and, in my personal opinion, a ruthlessly efficient creature. You could even cast this on yourself and still make it a 10/10 or so. Also, this is much better than a Hypnotic Specter given the added support of the discard sorceries.
  • Shrieking Affliction: A Neo-Rack that, in a dedicated deck, works better than the former. In combination with Painful Quandary, the Affliction will pin down any opponent and force him to not playing a card or lose between 5 and 8 life, considering he/she has only 1 or 2 cards in hand.
  • Sign in Blood: Draw engine that will, for the price of 2 life, keep the opponent on it's toes. Just when your hand seemed empty... BOOM, 2 new threats. Used best in Turns 4-5.
  • The Rack: A staple in this kind of deck, well supported by Shrieking Affliction this card is Game Over if your opponent can't top-deck an anti-artifact card within the first 7 Turns.
  • Victim of Night: This hits more creatures than Doom Blade and Go for the Throat (also there are some Wurmcoil Engines and Steel Hellkites in my playgroup), so it's my first choice. Also the is not a downside in this deck.

With so few creatures Tainted AEther can keep the pressure up alongside Painful Quandary. Also, why not include Waste Not for more value from discards?

I have a query about your 'perfect strategy'. Please explain how:
turn 1 dark rit. -> inquisition -> hymn to tourach
turn 2 Sign in Blood
turn 3 Victim of Night -> Shrieking Affliction
Is not perfect? Turn 3 could also be spent in any number of ways...

Yes! I'm sorry about that, I haven't updated the descriptions of the decks lately. But yes, the actual perfect run goes similar to what you propose! Thanks for reminding me !

@FAGGOTUS-REX I know. I lie, that's my thing hahaha.

Although I still don't buy the last rack, the deck is pretty well balanced in this particular way. The Rack that's missing could occupy the slot of 1x Sign in Blood or of 1x Swamp
