Does that mean 20 creatures in your opponents graveyard or 20 creatures died while The Night Mother was active?

Kind of bizarre.

I think while The Night Mother is active, otherwise you could just play the card whenever the enemy gets 20 creatures in his discard pile and instantly burst the enemy down
Active

That makes sense. It's death to the minion decks with all those goblins and firebrands, but unlikely to trigger against a anybody else.

Night Mother works fine with the slay mechanic. If you want you slay effect to trigger you just drop a 0/1 guard in front of your creature and kill it, without hurting your creature. Pretty much feeding a Blood Magic Lord with spells.

Highly underrated card. On it's own it's worthless but when combined with slay creatures such as Defiler/Venomtongue and slay givers such as Lucien, along with a Brotherhood Sanctuary or two, it allows you to pull some insane combo's and snowball very quickly. A very strong alternate win condition option.

Now that I've had a chance to play it, it does trigger because you can add to your kill totals by putting out a target before lane clearing and when you just don't want to break a rune. I've actually had it trigger twice in one game.

Oh, I know. I run my Dark Brotherhood deck in ranked and, against slower decks, you do find that keeping them at 21 hp and denying them any card draw lets you set up nicely for a Night Mother finish.

Upon triggering it does not get discarded, the counter simply resets.
Highly underrated cad which requires specific deckbuilding where it can be serve as secondary or even primary win condition.

An unconventional use of this card is to use it in Control decks especially in Mage, Tribunal or Shout Scout. What you do with those decks? Destroy your oppontnent's creatures all the time, many times in mass with Ice Storm, Dawn's Wrath, DV or Odahviing. You can add some targets too. The 20 creatures count up earlier than you would think.
