- asdfety123: Once you get your opponent to 0-1 cards in hand, extra discard is pretty useless, and you have control measures as Victim of Night or Geth's Verdict in case they manage to do something.
You could use Wrench Mind in lieu of Hymn to Tourach, considering the first is much more budget friendly.

If you're running this, and feel that you sometimes get mana flooded, maybe you should run a pair of Barren Moor instead of 19 swamps, that way you can cycle a couple in a worst cast scenario?

CrazyGood-MTG9797: Thanks for the love man! I would suggest you check the other decks for ideas if you want. I see you like white decks too :)
malfeischylde: Although I HATE those lands, it might not be a bad idea to have 2x or 3x of Barren Moor. Thanks for the point of view man :)
I still have to test to a fine level how the speed is going (haven't played in 7 months, unfortunately), as the early 3-4 Turns HAVE to be valid, and I can't afford a Enters the battlefield tapped event ;)
Cheers to both!

In my discard deck I have only 16 lands and it works great. Allthought I have no Painful Quandary which is the most expensive card in your deck (but you have Dark Ritual and i don't). Sometimes I have some spare lands and then I pay retrace's cost of Raven's Crime with them, so I don't think that Barren Moor will be that necessery.

seriously. I can't stand having a land that comes in tapped when it is really important that it doesn't. I actually cut the moor from my loma pox list, and am just keeping the tranquil thicket bc it synergizes with the deck better. Ireally don't want my lands to slow me down. As is, I two lands that don't even tap for mana. The struggle is real.

If what you need is actual draw power in mono black, there is also Skeletal Scrying. I was just thinking that land flooding isa real thing in mono color decks with no fetches.

So how about that Guul Draz Specter instead of the Hypnotic Specter. Sure it comes out one turn longer but it will almost always come out as a 5/5 and stay that way on your turn with ample discard. Also, Asylum Visitor is on the cheap now. I've been testing it in my 8-rack/waste-not and it not only provides good draw but some really good power if the opponent doesn't have any creatures out.
