Liliana's Specter, Noxious Toad (oracle text is each opponent), Sadistic Hypnotist (this could be especially ugly in a creature heavy meta), and Words of Waste are all good discard options. Tinybones, Trinket Thief is a good payoff for all the discard. Dictate of Erebos is probably worth running in addition to Grave Pact.

I'm borderline obsessed with Underrealm Lich, which does both of these things.
I'm also unreasonably satisfied with the mechanical combination of creatures with both Vigilance and a Activated Ability. Some creatures are printed this way, like Adarkar Valkyrie or Vona, Butcher of Magan, but it's just as easy to create the scenario by granting vigilance to something like a Bloodline Keeper Flip.

Hey Awdiehl7, Praetor's Grasp is definitely situational, it depends on your playgroup. The higher the power level of the group, the more relevant Grasp becomes. It also helps if you play against the same decks or archetypes frequently, so you know how they work and what you can utilize with Grasp. I’ve also considered dropping the Swamps and running 1 of each card to enable Tainted Pact, that way I can steal Thassa's Oracle and win by exiling my library with Pact. I’m weighing whether the occasional extra mana potential with Cabal Coffers is worth running over Pact.
Profet93, yes, Castle Locthwain is rarely used, but it can come in handy in a tight spot. At least there is the option to draw a card at instant speed, even if I take some minimal life-loss. Plus I can use it in conjunction with Words of Waste on an opponent’s turn.
And yes, the stax pieces are always being targeted by other players, so the trick is layering them as the game progresses to overwhelm the other players, and eventually lock their hands down before they can kill you. If your meta is super creature-heavy, consider adding additional removal like I mentioned earlier. I don’t remember if I mentioned it, but Tainted AEther is very effective as well.
Also, I’d love to see pics of the deck. I’ve been meaning to post picks of mine, but I haven’t gotten around to it!

When Runed Servitor dies each player draws a card. Since I can pay 1cc into Words of Waste to make everyone else discard a card, will those cards drawn by my opponents be in their hands by the time Words of Waste makes them discard? This is for a Tergrid, God of Fright Flip deck, so the timing makes a difference if none of my opponents have any cards in hand.
Thanks in advance! :)
