Hi! This is my friend Tinybones, Trinket Thief. He is a wonderful value engine, group slug, and discard commander that is here to make you throw away your precious pieces of cardboard.

At the moment, I chose to not lean heavily into a reanimator theme, but that may change after some testing. The main focus here is to get everyone discarding as much as possible. While this also includes myself doing some discarding, I will generate a lot of card advantage simply by triggering his first ability and also by ensuring that my opponents have little to no cards in-hand, forcing them to top deck everything.

With the help of cards like Bottomless Pit, Liliana's Caress, Waste Not, and Wheel of Torture, I can ensure that not only will people be discarding each turn, but also that they will be punished for discarding each turn. This can easily turn off any blinged out "flex on em'" decks (I'm looking at you, $3,000 The Ur-Dragon & Sliver Queen decks). In the words of Dr. Zoidberg, "now the rubber band's on the other claw!"

Additionally, cards like Library of Leng, Bag of Holding, and Bone Miser all help out in the very likely instance where I am having to discard my own stuff. Necropotence and Ivory Tower together make for an insane grip of cards always being at my disposal (and with no life loss!). Bojuka Bog, Relic of Progenitus, and Leyline of the Void will help keep aristocrats/reanimator decks in check. I am also considering Underworld Dreams as another slug piece, since most of the time other players will still be drawing cards. However, I do not want to take away from the discard punishments, so this is still a maybe.

Lastly, while everyone is getting pinged for damage for discarding/simply not having enough/any cards in their hands, the second ability of making every opponent with no cards lose 10 life is a very viable wincon (Torment of Hailfire is also included, which is just ridiculous all on its own), and will likely knock out the entire table with relative ease.

Thank you for the upvotes and messages! Long live the bone daddy!
