Words of Waste would be good here. Rankle, Master of Pranks makes you discard too, but a hastey repeatable effect is worth that downside imo.

I like the cards you have here! Great stuff so far. I have several questions and suggestions:

  • I know these are the cards you have on hand, but is money a factor so far as buying additional cards? If not, I would highly recommend a Tendershoot Dryad. It will pair well with your Sporecrown Thallid, Verdeloth the Ancient, Nemata, Grove Guardian and Verdant Force. These cards are a pretty solid core for the deck. Now start looking for ways to tutor them. Worldly Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Grim Tutor..... we are in fantastic colors for tutoring the cards you need.
  • After building the core of your deck and what you want it to do, I like to add support and utility cards. I love Viconia, Drow Apostle, Shadowheart, Dark Justiciar, Rankle, Master of Pranks, and Loyal Guardian for this purpose! Might I recommend a Thunderfoot Baloth to pair with your Guardian?
  • Cut your land count down to 37 - 40, then playtest and see how it feels
  • Play to your commander's strength. I am working on a budget version (less than $80) of The Mycotyrant myself, and will be playing Cemetery Tampering, Crawling Infestation, and Crawling Sensation. One of the things I try to do is build a deck that functions well without the commander on the board so I am not completely hosed when they are removed. I like all 3 of these enchantments because I am not in danger of decking myself, and if the commander is not on the field I do not have to mill. I talk about milling, because it plays to The Mycotyrant's strength as a commander. We will see if I still want all 3 enchantments in the deck after I build it and see it in action, hopefully soon.
  • If you decide to lean into milling yourself and sacrificing creatures like I have for my deck, I would recommend stepping away from non-creature spells and do your removal in creature form. I currently only have a total of 7 sorceries and instants in my deck, so as I mill myself I am more guaranteed to hit permanent cards. Remember that The Mycotyrant cares about permanent cards in your graveyard, so sacrificing your tokens will not contribute to its descend mechanic.
  • To follow along the vein of previous suggestion, invest in some free sac outlets: Greater Good, Altar of Dementia (target yourself to capitalize on commander ability at your end step)

I think that's all I have for the moment...... let me know if you have any questions! Here is my work in progress Budget Mycotyrant

Azoth2099 on Tergrid Sac Discard Draw help please

Ok, so here's a few top picks (imho) for Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip.

Oppression, Liliana, Waker of the Dead, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Living Death, Delirium Skeins, Innocent Blood, Cunning Lethemancer, Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Words of Waste, Smokestack, Sword of Feast and Famine & Chains of Mephistopheles (just proxy it lol)

There's also a lot of cheaper options that are just as synergistic like Plaguecrafter, Demon's Disciple, Raven's Crime, Hymn to Tourach, Mind Twist, Mind Shatter, Mind Slash & Sadistic Hypnotist.

Outside of the synergy pieces, I'd recommend replacing some of those low-power pieces like Bad Deal & Inevitable End with value pieces like Dark Ritual & Vampiric Tutor for greater consistency.

I have a few suggestions:

  1. Perhaps Faerie Mastermind for more card draw/turn on Spellstutter Sprite?

  2. Faerie Fencing as a two replacement for Peppersmoke. By all means keep one Peppersmoke in the mainboard.

  3. I recommend 2xQuickling over Faerie Impostor, simply for the flash.

  4. You have lots of creatures, any thought of running Obyra, Dreaming Duelist or Tegwyll, Duke of Splendor in here?

  5. If you need some more support you could run Spell Stutter for some counter magic.

  6. Finally, since you are running Bitterblossom, have you considered running Rankle, Master of Pranks or Picklock Prankster?

Faerie Duelist wouldn't be a bad sideboard option against aggressive decks either.

Big fan of Seizan. Was my black stax commander for years until Tergrid was printed. The synergy was too juicy and the switch had to be made. I miss Seizan though as group hug thug is a fun strategy.

Mark of the Oni not many decks this works in. A blue steal effect that's cheaper than blue.

Master of the Feast might be worth a spot.

Rankle, Master of Pranks little Seizan.

Sheoldred, the Apocalypse too expensive but the utility is there and the math is clear.

Rankle, Master of Pranks really has the perfect abilities but I'm not sure how to sneak him past enemy defenses to deal combat damage to a player. The Stronghold Rats come with shadow, so it was an easy pick. I do have Whispersilk Cloak but that's about it. At my LGS, running flyers is the norm. I have no idea if that's how it is at most places, so it may be more of a local quirk that makes Rankle harder to benefit from.

I swapped out a basic for Mikokoro, Center of the Sea.

I know some people have already suggested Rankle, Master of Pranks but I’m going to suggest him again cause he seems like a very good addition to the deck.

Another suggestion would be Infernal Offering. Infernal Offering seems like it’s the exact type of card you’re looking for, it can heavily benefit you while also not being such a feel bad moment for your opponents.
