Descent into Madness Discussion

Definitely a lot to consider. Might transition this into a pure hand disruption deck, move Descent into Madness into a token gen deck so I can get the ball rolling on it faster.

if its a casual deck you can do anything without a worry, if you want it to be a competitive list you would need to see at cards like Inquisition of Kozilek , Duress , Thoughtseize , Agonizing Remorse , Collective Brutality for hand disruption, Smallpox maybe probably not, for creature removal you would want to go low as well like Fatal Push , Dismember , Deadly Brew . you mostly would want to drop the avarage cmc of the deck, cards that dont help your game plan or wont do anything till 3 turn after cast will just hinder you, eg: Descent into Madness . cards that you could change that fit better that cards you already have are: Driven , Infuse with Vitality creatures that are good by themselves and cheap and could give you access to other game plans are: Putrid Leech , Lotleth Troll , idk Sarulf, Realm Eater ?
mostly focus on droping the cmc, after that go for cheaper removal and creatures, modern is a fast format for the most part.

Okay so, I made a list of stuff you can get rid of from the deck. I've played Nath Stax in the past. Craterhoof should not be your win con. You need the Shepherd from Jumpstart since he's basically the win con now for Nath stax.
Caustic Caterpillar , Reclamation Sage The Abyss Necrogen Mists Bottomless Pit Descent into Madness Allosaurus Shepherd are all great cards to add into this deck. I suggest looking for them for the deck to make it go faster.
Also, make sure to look at my Nath Stax deck here on TappedOut!

Well, a good classic card for storm decks is Aetherflux Reservoir and you aren't running a Bolas's Citadel which imo is too good to pass up. Also some bombs in this deck is Endless Cockroaches , Cloudstone Curio , Ayara, First of Locthwain and Priest of Gix . Demon's Disciple and Plaguecrafter are also good cards, can't have too many Fleshbag Marauder effects.
I also enjoyed playing Painful Quandary , Smokestack , Descent into Madness Bitterblossom and Contamination when I built Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Tergrid, God of Fright Flip would probably fit here too.
This commander I used as a sac stax deck with a storm win con, Exsanguinate is another win con you can use for this deck.
Good luck, hope your play group keeps playing with you haha

Since you're new, check out cards from the magic sets Innistrad, Dark Ascension, and Avacyn Restored for Halloween-like cards. It's the classic gothic horror plane in magic. They did return to it later in Shadows over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon, but it's not as strongly of a gothic horror theme. From the Innistrad block you have cards like Army of the Damned, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed (zombie version of Mikaeus, the Lunarch), Griselbrand, Grimoire of the Dead, Olivia Voldaren, Descent into Madness, Werewolves that transform, etc.

Just looking for some opinions to finalize this bad boy. I've fallen bellow 100 cards, could probably justify cutting others, and I'm not married to the commander.
So the main strategy will be to do a sort of soft lock with Sire Of Insanity/Descent into Madness effects that empty hands, and then use Theater of Horrors/Sunbird's Invocation/Stolen Strategy/Sin Prodder ect. to get around the effect.
Thanks guys <3

Descent into Madness could be interesting. Yawg can proliferate the despair counters to make it faster, and you'll (hopefully) have tokens out that you can exile to mitigate how much it hurts you. It's a weird card, but this might be the deck for it.
