Whenever an opponent discards a card, Megrim deals 2 damage to that player.

Some small recommendations I can think of:

Icbrgr on MBC: 8-Rack

9 months ago

@DMFF thanks for the reassurance! I know i have a playset in my collection and ill dig em out and give them a try... would you suggest it as a 3x The Rack 3x Shrieking Affliction and 2x Waste Not?

@ChocolatePuma oh yeah I have always loved Megrim and the strictly better Liliana's Caress! I think the only issue I have with those cards is Empty handed opponents in topdeck mode... it feels really good early buy feels bad in the late game... I don't know of any instant speed discard effects outside of Nezumi Shortfang  Flip to rely on Caress? How did you utilize Liliana's Caress? Does it just work better side by side with The Rack than im giving it credit for? I fortunatly have had a full playset for years now and am totally open to trying it out!

I'm at work, so I can't do a thoroughly search for you, but I believe you might get inspiration from Nekusar, the Mindrazer decks. His most effective builds are Windfall-like cards plus Megrim/Underworld Dreams effects with Waste Not out.

Also, run all 2-cmc untapped ramp you can get your hands on: it'll make your deck run smoothly as butter. Azorius Signet, Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Hierarchy, Fellwar Stone.

If you're interested, I can give you more comprehensive advice once I get home. Your build might benefit from some tweaks.

Some thoughts:

  • 20 lands feels really low for a deck running Smallpox, that also needs 3 mana reliably, and ideally 4 mana for Tourach, Dread Cantor. Personally, i'd go up to 24 lands, and then run a playset of Raven's Crime so that you can still make use of any excess lands you might draw later in the game. (i'd drop the Hypnotic Specter for those extra lands, as the card just validates your opponents killspells too much)

  • I'd suggest running the full playset of Smallpox as it can just prove soo valuable for messing with your opponent, particularly if you're on the draw (which 8rack decks often want to be).

  • I'd ditch Megrim in place of some kind of killspell. between Shrieking Affliction, The Rack, and Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage you already have enough ways to punish an empty hand - and the opponent might not even have any cards in hand to discard after turn 3 anyway. You also want to be able to killspell the opponents board to force them into having to play more cards and get lower on resources. I think Fatal Push would be a lot more useful than Megrim here.

  • Duress can be really problematic in that it might not find a card to discard. I'd suggest running 3x Blackmail instead, and then 1 copy of Bontu's Last Reckoning. Blackmail is a lot stronger in that it will at least be guaranteed to force a discard, and the single copy of Bontu's Last Reckoning can come in clutch for getting out of gross situations (though I don't think you want to be running more than 1 copy because drawing 2 in a game is probably not helpful)

Hi @zepample,

I play in a very casual meta, so I can afford to play dumb expensive flavorful cards. :)

Here are some modifications you can try to make the deck stronger if your meta is a bit more serious:

Hope some of this helps to adjust the deck for your meta. :)

Grasp of Nixilis


Whenever an opponent discards a card, that player loses 2 life

: 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.
