Hey Nyrmak and theindigoeffect, you bring up really important points about how to distribute discard effects in multiplayer games. The trick is reading the room and knowing which players to antagonize and when. If you attract too much hate, one or more players will gang up on you and it will be difficult to handle them all simultaneously.
Ultimately the goal is to use as little mana as possible to kill each player. To do that you want each player to have 0 cards in hand, so you can do 10 damage to each player with Tinybones for a single activation cost. Unless other players are constantly drawing cards with card effects, organically each player should eventually run out of cards in hand as they play lands and spells.
Once you trigger Tinybones once, each player will suddenly realize you are the biggest threat on the table. So ideally you want to set up the board to lock it down before you pull the trigger. Ideally you’ll want to start the game or tutor for permanents that make each player discard every turn, including Anvil of Bogardan , Bottomless Pit , Necrogen Mists , Chains of Mephistopheles , Oppression , Words of Waste , and Liliana of the Veil (although she is easier to remove). Other non-permanent options for making each opponent discard are Vicious Rumors , Delirium Skeins , and retracing Raven's Crime . All this discarding during each player’s turn will allow you to draw lots of cards with Tinybones. Once each player is down to only a few cards in hand, that’s when you target individual players with the most cards with discard spells to get them down to 0 cards. Once your opponents are forced to top-deck every turn, it will usually be too late for them to escape.
Obviously this is easier said that done, but that’s what makes this deck so fun to pilot!

Thanks 7thZombieman! Those are certainly some strong combos I'll have to add in for sure (though I do have the mindcrank/bloodchief one already). The reason I have to use some cards like Anvil of Bogardan and Oppression are to make best use of the tinybones triggers. There aren't that many ways to make people discard on their turn, and so sadly I have to make use of what is available. However, that doesn't mean I can't include some of the other cards you mentioned- library of leng looks crazy I'm def gonna add that in, same going for Sangromancer, Mind Rake, and most of the others! Only one I'm not too sure about is the Archfiend, as I myself am not discarding THAT much in the deck, as I'm aiming for most of it to go to my opponents tho incidentally there are some that apply to me as well. You've given me a lot to think about, thank you so so much, and have a wonderful day.

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

Red is, well at least, on the color pie, the color of hate effects that have to deal with either damage, or permanent control. Each of the colors has their own way of being a dick on the table, such as Blue with Stasis, white with Blind Obedience and black with cards like Oppression and Painful Quandary. (Black is my fav, btw. Can't play cards if you don't have them in play, lol)

Peoni Thank you. There are definitely a lot of things to try out. The part I'm having the most trouble with now is trying to figure out what to cut.
