Caerwyn Thank you for the suggestions. Having alternate win cons defintitely sounds good to have.

Peoni Thank you for the suggestions. I forgot to ask about Notion Thief I definitely see the synergy with the wheels however I was wondering if I should be concerned about it lower damage potential on the wheels.
Currently I'm thinking of Black Sun's Zenith over Damnation Mostly because its reusable.

I am now wondering if I should also remove Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Oppression and double down on more mill mechanics.

Poseidon31 on Did you ask for cards?

You need Removal.

I would cut Mind Rot (4x Unburden seems enough), Fell Specter (To expensive), 2x Torments of Hailfire (2 is enough to finish), Liliana Vess. You have enough discard.

Therefore i would play 4x Thoughtseize and 4x Fatal Push. Then you need Mass Removal. 2x Bontu's Last Reckoning is a cheap Board clear with light burden. 2x Murderous Rider.

Then to push your Hailfire i would play 2x to 3x Cabal Stronghold. For Fatal Push to trigger i would play Fabled Passage. 2x Field of Ruin to deal with annoying Lands, like Azcanta or something else.

Then you have your full sideboard to edit. Here are some nice Black Sideboard cards and maybe a way to split those cards: 3x Ashiok, Dream Render 2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet 1x Bontu's Last Reckoning 2-3x Collective Brutality 1x Infernal Reckoning 2x Murderous Rider 2x Noxious Grasp 1x ElderSpell 1x Pithing Needle

Fell Specter will trigger, but your opponent will lose before the Fell Specter triggers would go on the stack.

A player losing the game due to having 0 life is one of the game's state-based actions (SBAs). These are checked whenever a player would receive priority. Additionally, triggers go on the stack whenever a player would receive priority, and in order for items on the stack to resolve, all players must pass priority without adding anything to the stack (this applies to each item).

What happens in your scenario is that you cast Fateful Showdown. Assuming no responses (which would go on the stack above it), Fateful Showdown then resolves in its entirety. This means that the Showdown deals the damage, which you stated to be lethal, and then you discard your hand and draw new cards. Technically Fell Specter triggers at this point, but the triggers do not go on the stack just yet since Showdown is still resolving.

Once Showdown is done resolving, the active player would receive priority again, so SBAs are checked before triggers are placed on the stack. SBAs see that your opponent is now at 0 or less life, and your opponent immediately loses the game. Since your opponent is gone, so are their triggers, which never get to go on the stack (which matters in a multiplayer game where you still have another opponent).

Example: Opponent with Fell Specter and I play Fateful Showdown targeting my opponent for lethal damage; would he die before I discard my cards or after? Making the Fell Specter trigger and potentially kill me aswell !?

I have tried to minimize my creature count in the deck, hence the large number of enchantments. Honestly if Fell Specter hit every opponent then he'd make the cut.

I might have to give Bone Miser a try.

The problem with Fell Specter is its a creature, so it can die to a lot of stuff ... but if you really need life loss on discard effects, it can be useful.
