8rack is given its name due to its primary win conditions: The Rack and Shrieking Affliction. These cards, along with a myriad of discard effects, allow you to slowly whittle your opponents health down while allowing them fewer and fewer cards to cast, disrupting strategies, and in certain cases, forcing them to concede completely. The competitive core of the deck is mono-black, with a few artifacts, and occasionally an additional color (or even two!). Due to the early curve, it generally wants to run a few less lands than most higher-tiered control decks, but land draws late game are sometimes fatal dead draws, and it wants to minimize that problem as much as possible. There are 5 playsets the deck cannot live without: The Rack, Shrieking Affliction Liliana of the Veil, Thoughtseize, and Inquisition of Kozilek. The first two are relatively self-explanatory. Liliana of the Veil is the mistress with the most, providing awesome tempo, while keeping your opponent consistently off cards and off creatures. This is probably one of the only decks where using her ultimate isnt your game plan with her, rather keeping her around using her abilities to keep your opponent tempoed out of responses. Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are easily the strongest hand attack spells in modern. Inquisition grabs most everything relevant in modern, and what it cant grab, Thoughtseize can for just a little extra life.
What you do beyond that point is kind of up to you. there are many other strong discard effects out there, and other cards that provide strong attrition.
