Honestly, while not a better card than Thoughtseize, I would sooner spend money on a playset of these than of those. Honestly what are you going to go after with a 1CMC discarder? You're going to try to get the base of your opponent's game, the combo enablers, the early game creatures, the accelerators, not the top of their mana curve.

This is functionally a Thoughtsieze for a fraction of the price and very little loss in utility. Great card.

Lets see... I take away your blightning, bolt, terminate, pulse, putrid leech, sprouting thrinax, white knight, knight of the reliquary, basilisk collar, and on and on and on. Not to even mention how good it is in the mirror match. This card is great early game and mid-game.

Really good. I like this design, a discard counterpart to Smother.

This will also find great use in eternal formats.
Most threads you have to get rid of don't cost more than three mana anyways. Except for Force of Will maybe.
And if that card is in your opponent's hand, this spell possibly won't resolve anyways.

A new contender for black 1 drops that discard a card from the opponent's hand.

Smotherseize with no life cost. It has some nice synergy with Cabal Therapy.

Just like Smother, it maybe not good against every deck but it's definitely a card for the main deck.

You don't need to discard Force Of Will if you wreck their hand discarding all their Brainstorm or whatever else. You could just as easily make Force Of Will become a dead card in decks running 3 colors. They need a card to pitch to FOW and sometimes they won't have many. Also, if someone pitches a card to counter you, they knock out two cards from their hand, then when you Hymn To Tourach them you will feel better. FOW is one of the last cards I reach for. It is the opposite of card advantage. Why would you choose it as a target?

idk about this card, apparently duress isn't even commonly played in standard, or so I've heard.

In extended it's outclassed by thoughtseize (just like every other similar card), and in legacy/vintage it can't even grab force of will so the chances of it being played there is very low anyway.
