Discard is a pretty rude mechanic, but typically it's only an annoyance. With this deck I'm aiming to cripple my opponents by completely emptying their hand... and discarding them to death.

Caution: Your opponents are going to hate this, so so much.

How Discard Kills

Dealing with Creatures

This deck is super light on creatures so I have a few different strats to deal with opponents' creatures.

  • Massacre Girl A commander who sweeps the board clear.
  • Noetic Scales : The best creature solution, perfectly in sync with the discard gameplan. With no cards in hand, their creatures bounce back to their hand on upkeep. Then I make them discard those creatures.
  • Tainted AEther : Are you sure you want to cast that creature? It's gonna cost you.
  • Spreading Plague : Are you really sure you want to cast that creature?
  • Ensnaring Bridge : Fine, have your creatures but they can't attack.
  • 3 mass removal + 4 single-target removal + 2 creature sacrifice spells

Long term, the plan is to empty each opponent's hand so they're just hoping to top-deck a creature.
