Hey sapounos, I have a few suggestions based on my experience with this same deck type.

First of all, 4 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is too many - it is inevitable that you will draw 2 consecutively and it will slow down your early game. I suggest cutting them down to 2.

zapyourtumor is right on - drop 1 Nether Spirit. And you must run Shrieking Affliction, it is critical. You may even want to run a couple Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage to make it 10-rack. There are times where even with 10 racks you will only draw one, and that is your only way to win.

Another issue is that you have no way to stop creatures other than the Lilianas and blocking with Nether Spirit. If you run Lilianas with no blocking power, they’ll be killed in seconds against aggro decks. Your playset of Pushes are not enough. You need something like Ensnaring Bridge to protect you and/or more board wipes. I like Bontu's Last Reckoning because it is very rare to have over 3 lands in play. Another possibility is Bitterblossom to generate blockers.

Also, you need Feed the Swarm on the sideboard for enchantment removal - it will really come in handy. And Cling to Dust for lifegain.

Also, the new Grief is a possible inclusion. Maybe run a couple in place of Thoughtseize. I haven’t tested them enough to know if they are worth it yet.

Hope this helps!

Nether Spirit is absolutely atrocious with 10 other creatures, I have no idea why it is here.

Some Fetid Heath in addition to the urborgs can help with t1 flagstones into t2 smallpox.

Vindicate is additional removal and can help with the mana denial plan with smallpox.

Shrieking Affliction could be another good Rack-Spell. And only one Nether Spirit could be better, because of its synergie to be the only creature in this deck, he could be the only creature card in your grave.

Hey theindigoeffect, I appreciate your comments earlier, so I found your deck and took a good look at it to see how I could help. I think you have the general idea right, but you are lacking awareness of certain cards and interactions that could really benefit your deck. If you are set on Tymaret, I found this other Tymaret deck on moxfield that, imho, is very close to where you want to be. Check it out:

First of all, you are trying to combine two themes which do not really mix, especially not with your chosen commander - discard and sacrifice. Discarding your opponents’ cards does not further your goals at all. What Tymaret does is sacrifice creatures, and that should be your focus.

You need recursive creatures like Gravecrawler , Nether Spirit , and Reassembling Skeleton .

Then you need cards that hurt the opponent when you sacrifice, like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat .

And other sacrifice outlets like Phyrexian Altar .

And cards to reanimate your and your opponents’ creatures, like Reanimate , Animate Dead , and Necromancy .

And more drawing and tutors to help find your pieces, like Night's Whisper , Faithless Looting , Wheel of Fortune , Gamble , Vampiric Tutor and Imperial Seal .

I'd go down to one copy of Nether Spirit, obviously you put two in because you want more consistency but idk if the consistency is worth potentially cancelling out both by discarding the second one.

I would suggest playing something like Chimeric Mass instead of Mutavault because if you have to sacrifice mutavault because of Smallpox then you might be putting yourself in a position to be unable to win the game.

What happens if your opponent uses Path to Exile or Surgical Extraction on Nether Spirit? You basically just have Liliana, the Last Hope ultimate and The Rack as the only ways to win. I wouldn't say you really want to be betting on your opponent having no way to deal with that.

Chimeric Mass isn't vulnerable to Smallpox or other cards you see fairly often in modern like Ghost Quarter and Molten Rain.

Finally, I would suggest at least considering Tectonic Edge. You're running 4 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so tectonic edge is basically just going to be another swamp most of the time and it is better than Field of Ruin if the opponent has 4 or more lands. It also has good synergy with Inquisition of Kozilek.
