    People are swearing by Burning Inquiry and getting results with it. Since most of the deck is happy to be discarded, it seems potentially explosive by digging 3 deep, but I really prefer lines where...

    Players do it because it's the direction Wizards has taken the game since at least a decade ago. It's how the most formats work and all new players know.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Pox is a different card from Smallpox.
    Smallpox only discards 1 and takes 1 life, so you can discard or cast Noxious and keep Barren Glory to win.
    Pox takes 1/3 of your hand and 1/3 of your life,...

    Re: Suicide Black Redux

    Yeah that or Undying Evil pairs well with Grief. Reanimate has the most utility without Grief so it probably deserves slots first. I guess Rebirth could replace a land.
