Discard deck. Main idea is to have the opponent without a hand to use from the very start, and kill him using Liliana's Caress.
Comments are very much welcome.
It's a finisher, nothing more, nothing less. When it strikes the battlefield, and Shrieking Affliction or card:Liliana's Caress are already there, the opponent can't play anything without losing lives. That's the trick... and by T5 or T6, he won't have many cards in hand, nor lives. I have so few ways to protect myself here, that I can't really afford to lose 2 lives with Sign in Blood , although it is indeed tempting sometimes.
IMO, Guul Draz Specter is a useless card. Expensive, it can only possibly cause a discard on the turn after it is played. Although it gets stronger, basically only on your turn as you have no option to discard on their turn (save for Painful Quandary ), It can't defend against a good flyer that they manage to cheat out somehow. card:Liliana's Specter is better. Still chump-block's for the same power, cheaper, basically guarateed to cause discard, and you can rely on Painful Quandary and Shrieking Affliction to be your finishers.
Disagree with me, you may. But I stand by my arguments.
Actually, nope. This plays itself so fast, almost no threat can go to the battlefield (without the restrictions of Despise & Duress . Unless you play it, you can't say it doesn't work. And Guul Draz Specter x2 is enough of a threat when it hits play. card:Liliana's Specter is too weak, you sneeze on it and it dies. But thanks you for posting.
