Hi. Nice List. Have you thougth about Liliana's Caress? Could do a lot with all the discard.

How are you using Pain Magnification? I see the intent of turning damage into discard, but none of your sources deal 3 damage at a time. As an example, if an opponent discards two cards to Teferi's Puzzle Box while you have Liliana's Caress out, it deals 2 damage twice, not 4 damage once.

Outside of that, this is really nice. As another suggestion, you could use some 1-mana discard. Anything from Duress to Inquisition of Kozilek to Thoughtseize, depending on available budget.

: Each player discards a card


Megrim gave way to Liliana's Caress, and here's the resultant broken version that only Ob Nixilis could cook up for us.

Wildcard.

Font of Agonies is a must for any deck relying on paying life to cast spells. I have it in my K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth deck and can kill a surprising number of creatures if both are kept on the battlefield long enough.

There's no guarantee you can get K'rrik on the battlefield soon enough to make a difference. That's why I recommend finding a spot for Defiler of Flesh to give you an increase in chances of having the ability to pay life instead of mana.

Also, Crypt Ghast, while legal in mono-black decks, can lead other players with the mistaken impression that it isn't legal due to the extort cost.

Tainted Remedy is very flavorful for a Liliana deck, but unless you add more cards that allow your opponents to gain life(including, but not limited to, Grollub and Triskaidekaphobia), or in a play circle where lifegain is well utilized, it's mostly a dead card. If you wish for an alternative I'd recommend Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose.

As for benefitting from Graveyard recursion, may I suggest Syr Konrad, the Grim? Get this on the battlefield with the Gravecrawler/Phyrexian Altar combo and it's an Insta-win.

Have you considered Liliana's Caress with all the discard in your deck?

That's all for now. Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

If there's one thing I know, it's how to make discard happen; have been known to use a Wheel & Deal Nekusar, the Mindrazer EDH deck.

In colors you have:

And probably so many more that I've forgotten. If I give it enough time, I might be able to find "retro" framed discard-specific cards.. but that sounds like fun. I'll update you if I cross any!

Welcome to the club, Thefrench!

How about some repeatable discard? Disrupting Scepter is kind of the low end, specter creatures like Abyssal Specter or Hypnotic Specter provide damage-based discard, and triggered discard like Bottomless Pit through Cunning Lethemancer and Necrogen Mists to Anvil of Bogardan provide reliable counters for your commander, depending on how much money you're willing to spend. Liliana's Caress gets a one-mana discount off Megrim for a very similar effect.
