I’ll take a look as soon as I can 1empyrean but I’m a bit busy this afternoon, give me a few hours and I’ll have a full read through and leave a comment with any ideas that come into my noggin!

I made a mill deck, just for the hell of it, an update of the new dimir Zendikar precon. I’m writing a primer currently but it’s aim is to control the board through hand disruption and mill. Things likE the old Windfall & Notion Thief combo or sacrificing Mindslicer and overloading Cyclonic Rift

And I already love the deck, for you did the very best thing a brewer can do: Keyword "discard" and search therefrom.

I have a discard deck of my own, you see, and thence I may be able to tell some cards. It is also my oldest deck, and it is here if you so wish to see it.

Thereupon, I have quite the meiny of suggestions:

Ramp would be best for such a mana-hungry complot, withal I would like to recommend a seldomly known card. Ahem. SOL RING?! It's too powerful to ignore, and thence I would most see to its inclusion. Charcoal Diamond is splendid, Mind Stone does quite a bit, Worn Powerstone is slow but leastway worth a mention. K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth does much for any black-based strategy, anent all of the resource life offers.

Now, Mindslicer is most meritorious, for it may be sacrificed to dear Rankle whiles doing the job in one turn.

More efficient discard! Delirium Skeins and Mind Rake are each quite effective, whereupon Hymn to Tourach is as good as it gets.

Terror is a little restrictive. I've much enjoyed Murderous Rider and Hero's Downfall. Snuff Out catches people off-guard.

It is important to be ahead on cards whiles playing a discard deck, so I would try Necropotence. It may exile those discarded, but the amount it draws is ayont worth an inclusion. Greed and Erebos are also fine. Castle Locthwain is essentially a free inclusion, where at Sign in Blood should be here, too.

There are a few cards I trow to be lacking:

Beacon of Unrest is quite costly for its effect, and the renowned Animate Dead is oft just better. Any graveyard, three less to cast, all the like.

Mind Slash is one with which I have tested. What exactly are you sacrificing? You haven't much in terms of fodder, not much to reanimation, and thus it is almost certes a dead card most of the time.

Liliana's Reaver and Guiltfeeder are so slow! Try actual threats that murder quickly, or prioritize wraths and board control.

Curse of Fool's Wisdom doesn't do anything, thereupon it is slow to slaughter and expensive to cast.

May fortune betide and may your opponents be hagridden.

I like the deck, you have some interesting cards here in the 99. If you are looking to make it more powerful, Mindslicer might be up your ally. The only concern would be you do not have too many ways to sacrifice it, so up to you if you think it could work. Some other cards you might like Pox, Bag of Holding, Cunning Lethemancer, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel as a general black good card.

You miss quite a few keypieces that match your theme. Aura Thief, Mindslicer, Contamination, Ashiok, Dream Render and Grave Pact are just a few that come to mind. They’re doing great work in my Muldrotha deck. Night Incarnate also kills a lot of decks like tokens, elves, goblins etc

A great start to what I was thinking of doing.

I recommend considering these as well Mindslicer, Delirium Skeins, Mind Shatter, Gibbering Descent, maybe even Wit's End

Hey! I’m in the beginning stages of building this deck. I like your list a lot, but I have to say my very first thought when seeing TB was Mindslicer would be an excellent add!

Oh yeah I love Mindslicer, right now in my meren I'm running Mind Slash as a sac engine/ oh was that your key combo piece? Hahaha

Vash13 That is an excellent point and many times I do have no hand and just choose to dredge over and over anyway. When Meren of Clan Nel Toth was my commander back in the day I used to play Mindslicer but it is pretty mean. I am afraid of venturing too far down that dark path. I prefer to keep my evil more zany instead of Hitleresqe.
