Q:Perhaps you could recommend some cards to get / take out of this deck.
It's a mono-black discard deck, with Bloodchief Ascension and Liliana's Caress being the key components in my game.
Should I invest in a Liliana Vess, and are there any better discard spells than Mind Rot and Mind Sludge?
1 Giant Scorpion
1 Geth, Lord Of The Vault
2 Black Knight
2 Gatekeeper Of Malakir
2 Vampire Nighthawk
3 Liliana's Specter
4 Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
1 Inquisition Of Kozilek
1 Mind Sludge
1 Feast Of Blood
2 Doom Blade
2 Diabolic Tutor
2 Mind Rot
2 Psychic Miasma
2 Liliana's Caress
4 Bloodchief Ascension
Remove a Giant Scorpion for a Vampire Hexmage, to deal with pesky Planeswalkers. I don’t like Inquisition of Kozilek outside of limited, so try either another Liliana’s Specter or a Mind Rot or another Diabolic Tutor. Would recommend an Elixir of Life so you can keep cycling your spells and keep calling on them with more Diabolic Tutors. Try another Vampire Nighthawk if you need it against faster decks.
I would recommend a Liliana Vess, actually. Mind Sludge is a great card. Stick with that.
How will you fare against Dredge decks who are looking to be milled cards (Vengvine)? Might think about that. At least Unearth has rotated.
Try using a Memoricide in the sideboard (or maybe main) to get rid of stuff you can’t handle or would rather just exile.
I’m sure the community has other suggestions as well, so watch this post.

- mtgmyway said: Looking good. I agree with mtgfan’s suggestions. You might want a Quest for the Nihil Stone somewhere in here. I waould also recommend something like Temple Bell. I have a hard time keeping cards in my opponent’s hand for discarding in my deck.
