TYA for the comments. You all have inspired me. I am brewing a Dimir OTK discard deck using Horror of the Broken Lands with Tolarian Winds and finishing the job with Rite of Consumption . Thank you for the support. Hopefully I will finish it soon.

Might consider Victim of Night it's only 1 more mana and in almost all situations is a certain kill. If you're feeling kinda zainy you could even do Snuff Out .

I'm not sure how concerned you are with gaining life but because you have Gray Merchant I am going to also recommend Crypt Incursion and Gift of Orzhova and maybe even Rite of Consumption or Foul-Tongue Shriek .

I'm not sure how off the top of my head but you could probably do something kinda neat with Black Mana Battery and Wicked Akuba . Maybe nuke em when they are low enough.

Other than that I'm not super sure. I like the deck a lot!

Essence Harvest and Rite of Consumption could add consistency in case mugs tangle jarad

Rain of Filth , Thud and Rite of Consumption ? You have a lot of sac outlets and they don't do as much as some of the others. Ritual of the Machine was another suggestion but that's over $10 now. Prices sneak up on me over the decades

Thanks for posting, zapyourtumor. Great sideboard ideas, first of all. I’ll rearrange stuff to fit them in.

As for the questionable choices I’ve made in the maindeck, I think you’re right. Aqueous Form was born from the idea of wanting to guarantee damage got pushed through...but it isn’t exactly tournament grade play:/

I want to stick with Dimir colors, so unfortunately (good as it may be) no Temur Battle Rage . Rite of Consumption is sort of an ‘all-in’ poker move; if it doesn’t win then and there...yikes.

In short, I’d imagine most of your suggestions are the best choice. I’m just satisfied that what I designed isn’t complete trash. I’d rather lose a few games with something I’ve built than win everything with a net deck. I’ll keep your suggestions in mind in case I ever want to get behind this deck 100% and make it the best it can be.

I really like Vendetta here (although it may be worse than Push ) and Rite of Consumption looks interesting, although I don't know how that lifegain will interact with Shadow -- seems like a black alternative to Temur Battle Rage .

Aqueous Form is a really fun card in casual games, but I'm not sure how competitive it would be in this deck.

Some random suggestions: Stubborn Denial , Killing Wave , Scourge of the Skyclaves , ( Drown in the Loch ), Surgical Extraction for the sideboard.

at first glance i am going to suggest
Test of Endurance , Felidar Sovereign
Serra Avatar , Scourge of the Skyclaves , Malignus
Brion Stoutarm , Rite of Consumption , Fling , Thud
note: there are many other cards with similar effects so that these functions can be consistently played
its a busy day at work today but ill try to get some time later to do a more through inspection
