I've got a SPD in my momentum face up. I make my opponent discard a card and then AI.
Can I react to AI w/ SPD in addition to the discard (for 4 damage), or does the AI increase the number of cards discarded and not create a new instance of discard (for 2 damage)?

Discard is ALWAYS read as Discard from hand, in this case SPD is discarding from DECK not from hand, so nope SPD and AI have NO interaction. We badly need to retroactively change Discard from Deck to a keyword of it's own or reword it Mill X or something... geez

SPD triggers off cards going into the discard pile, doesn't matter if it's from hand or deck.

Yeah, it'll trigger an additional burn.

Would that work with a card that goes off the top of the deck though? There's no clear reference to the word "discard" on it at all.

I assume your talking about ancient insight and im pretty sure that discard usually means from your hand unless otherwise specified

Yes, Ancient Insight must respond to an instance of discard from hand, and it causes an additional discard from hand.

Should have clarified...

If I have Spinning Pile Driver face up in my momentum, would something like contemplation trigger the burn ability?

Why wouldn't it?
