Thanks for the comment! I completely forgot about Delirium Skeins and I can see Geth's Grimoire having a place in this deck.

Delirium Skeins, Geth's Grimoire, Megrim, Pain Magnification... depends on how crazy you want to go. Demonfire might be good as well

DMFF Thank you for the kind words. I did not actually know Elderfang Disciple existed, and I might consider taking out Delirium Skeins in the board for it against leyline. While I also like the elderfang art better, I also think rats are funny so I'll be keeping the rats for now.

You have smallpox but aren't really leveraging it to break symmetry with your opponent. Definitely go 3-4 Lingering Souls since you can discard it to smallpox or lili. Also, you're running BW with 4 urborgs and smallpox yet no Flagstones of Trokair ? I'd add at least 3-4 of those as well. You can probably cut down on some Thoughtseize because having 8x full targeted discard effects isn't really necessary since you should be emptying your opponent's hand pretty fast anyways. Plus they are crappy late draws if your opp only has lands in hand.

Running Lingering Souls (and Raven's Crime ) might have some nonbo with Rest in Peace , so you could use Leyline of the Void or Dauthi Voidwalker instead for grave hate. You could also run Delirium Skeins in the sb against Leyline of Sanctity .

I like this list, but I feel like it should be more aggressively sideboarded - with traditionally sideboard plainswalkers mainboard, you've already freed up ~4 slots for those matchups, and control lists are already about reading the meta and packing answers.

In terms of budget discard, I've always leaned into 'going topdeck mode' with symetrical discard effects like Delirium Skeins , or just trying to reccur Raven's Crime (even without land recursion, it lets you trade otherwise dead land draws for a discard). Packing your sideboard with 15 duress variants will jank out wins. Cabal Therapist might be optimal here, but Cry of Contrition and Divest will do fine.

Right now I'd lean into more instant speed removal for all the lumimancer blitz and cut some more neiche answers, but it really depends on what you expect to face. Budget lists are all about reading the meta to see what drawbacks don't matter.

Hey there; I might be missing something, but what is Evolving Wilds for in this deck?

You also might consider Delirium Skeins and Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage .

Hey Nyrmak and theindigoeffect, you bring up really important points about how to distribute discard effects in multiplayer games. The trick is reading the room and knowing which players to antagonize and when. If you attract too much hate, one or more players will gang up on you and it will be difficult to handle them all simultaneously.

Ultimately the goal is to use as little mana as possible to kill each player. To do that you want each player to have 0 cards in hand, so you can do 10 damage to each player with Tinybones for a single activation cost. Unless other players are constantly drawing cards with card effects, organically each player should eventually run out of cards in hand as they play lands and spells.

Once you trigger Tinybones once, each player will suddenly realize you are the biggest threat on the table. So ideally you want to set up the board to lock it down before you pull the trigger. Ideally you’ll want to start the game or tutor for permanents that make each player discard every turn, including Anvil of Bogardan , Bottomless Pit , Necrogen Mists , Chains of Mephistopheles , Oppression , Words of Waste , and Liliana of the Veil (although she is easier to remove). Other non-permanent options for making each opponent discard are Vicious Rumors , Delirium Skeins , and retracing Raven's Crime . All this discarding during each player’s turn will allow you to draw lots of cards with Tinybones. Once each player is down to only a few cards in hand, that’s when you target individual players with the most cards with discard spells to get them down to 0 cards. Once your opponents are forced to top-deck every turn, it will usually be too late for them to escape.

Obviously this is easier said that done, but that’s what makes this deck so fun to pilot!
