Leyline of the Void Discussion

Hello, you deck looks really nice. I have some suggestions of cards for you to think about:
First, as mentioned before Leyline of the Void, Anguished Unmaking, Despark are good cards to consider, and I also think you should lose the Lingering Souls for something more useful to you. For the same 3 mana you could drop Phyrexian Arena, Grim Tutor, Crypt Incursion, a third Wrath of God or you could lower your curve and play Surgical Extraction, Extirpate, Smallpox, Inquisition of Kozilek, Castigate, Dark Confidant
Secondly I would like to recommend some artifact and enchantment removal, mostly for sideboard, since you are within the color range of dealing with those easily: Revoke Existence, Fragmentize, Heliod's Intervention, Demystify

A couple of things that came to my mind when looking at your list were adding Leyline of the Void and perhaps adding a couple more lands. Leyline could come into play early and possibly free up several spots for other interaction such as the 4th thoughtseize and something like Despark or Anguished Unmaking. To make room for this I would look to cutting a couple of the other graveyard hate cards and maybe a copy of fall of the thran. I know fall is a big piece for your deck, but at 6 mana you'll have several turns to draw one before ever being able to cast it.
Another consideration for removing from the deck would be the copies of lingering souls. A couple 1/1's aren't very threatening, especially when you have cards like Omnath, Locus of Creation and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath running around. This might be where I would look to add the lands in. The flip lands from zendikar rising would probably be good candidates for this.
As far as finding more powerful finishers, the classic Death's Shadow is not only cheap but can be quite powerful as well. That could be very useful once you've blown up all the lands.
But these are my general thoughts as far as the main deck goes. Did you have anything in mind when it came to the sideboard?

White has a lot of nice anti-creature cards, like you mentioned. I could also see a counterspell deck with Leyline of the Void doing well. What has your experience been playing this against control decks?

Queso_Fresco: It depends, somewhat. I generally don't over-extend, so I can rebuild my graveyard, and there's a LOT of lines to victory here. It's unusual for them all to get exiled in one shot. Relic of Progenitus doesn't worry me TOO much. Also, when I think an opponent has graveyard hate in hand, I prioritize wheeling even if it's card disadvantage for me.
HOWEVER, I do struggle a lot against early Rest in Peace or Planar Void or a pre-game Leyline of the Void. I can usually deal with an instant-speed exile effect, even if it's at a rough time. It's the continuous forms of graveyard hate which cause me real trouble. I've been considering how to deal with that... But to consistently have answers for them would force me to warp the deck pretty badly (7+ bounce spells, etc) and I'm not certain it's worth it.
I probably SHOULD stick Feed the Swarm in here, though.

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing deck Apollo_Paladin! You've convinced me to buy into Legacy so that I can play with one of my friends who is also building a deck. I love the budget focus and the fun interactions I've seen playtesting a few hands.
I haven't played it yet, so what I'm about to ask is just based on my speculation. Would love to hear your thoughts though!
To that end, I was wondering specifically if you have considered Nevinyrral's Disk or Spine of Ish Sah or Scour from Existence or similar cards to respond to Grafdigger's Cage and Leyline of the Void. Would any of those cards or others be worth bringing in from the sideboard in the event of running into graveyard hate? Alternatively, perhaps Duress could provide some protection?
Thanks so much for the informative guide and your hard work on the deck! I can't wait until it comes.

Rejoice! Lithoform Blight is the new, better Contaminated Ground. replace right away:). In other news, I think more main deck removal is def a must, cards like erebos and vamp of the dire moon are cute, but probably bad, adding main deck pushes or thirsts would be ideal, but if u want to stick on the devotion route then Murderous Rider is a great one. as others have said nykthos is pretty bad here, especially if ur trying to curve into into a quad black card. in the board, Leyline of the Void is miles better than wretch

Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension / Leyline of the Void + Helm of Obedience / Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Cinderhaze Wretch These are some solid combos for discard tribal, and usually a quick closeout for a game.
I'd leave the Painful Quandary in and opt out Oppression. Every time I've played Oppression, its fucked me in the long run. Library of Leng is better than Anvil of Bogardan in my opinion, since it only applies to you. Definitely include that Sangromancer, crazy value in a discard deck. Mind Rake > Mind Rot just cause of the overload cost. Some cards to think about adding in Imp's Mischief, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Syphon Mind, Mind Twist, Archfiend of Ifnir, Banshee of the Dread Choir. Good lookin deck though! Hope these suggestions can help you out
