metalevolence LOVE the idea of a Maw of the Obzedat deck. That card is sweet. Will definitely brew. Added Flayer Husk in place of Beckon Apparition

@daengburapa: Thanks for your suggestions!

Beckon Apparition: Too narrow-minded. There aren't that many decks at my LGS that use the graveyard heavily, and for those that do I have Rakdos Charm, which also has other very good abilities.

Orzhov Pontiff: I need my removal to be instant speed. If my opponent destroys Ghostly Prison, an Orzhov Pontiff won't save me. Zealous Persecution and Ratchet Bomb will.

Purphoros, God of the Forge: The whole point of this deck is to give tokens to my opponent. The only way I can get tokens is targetting one of my own creatures with Mercy Killing.

I know you don't use sideboards, but if you play against decks that like to use the graveyard, you could consider Beckon Apparition. Hoses Snapcaster Mage, Golgari Grave-Troll, anything else with dredge or flashback, can hurt Tarmogoyf, all while giving you another token that can be used to trade or chump block.

Also, how about Orzhov Pontiff as a sorcery speed Zealous Persecution that also adds a creature to your side and can give your opponents -1/-1 twice?

You could also run a Purphoros, God of the Forge so that tokens coming in on your side also hurt your opponent.

Thanks for your question! Short answer: Yes, it can. Longer answer: It's very dependent on the player (as most midrangy decks are). There are slight changes you can make in the mainboard to adjust to your local meta, and knowing when to play certain threats and hold off for removal is vital. Another huge factor to this deck is its sideboard! You have some of the most potent sideboard options available (especially in white). Often times I will board out 4 Nightsky Mimic and either 4 Castigate or 4 Beckon Apparition to board in tons of hateful sideboard control cards. This shifts the whole deck to more of a midrange-control than an aggro-midrange. One last note: CAREFUL with your Edge of the Divinity's! Against certain decks the best thing you can do is rush them onto creatures, but against others you HAVE to play around removal because a 2-for-1 it gonna be crippling if they bolt Nip Gwyllion in response to an Edge of the Divinity. In summary, yes it totally can, but just like other midrange decks with similar colors, it takes LOTS of practice to pilot it fluidly! Good luck at your LGS! Hope you can win some Pauper tourneys!

I also want to suggest Dryad Militant and Beckon Apparition as possibilities for the sideboard.

The Delve part of the strategy just for removing one card just seems klunky.. There are much better ways to exile the hedron. Beckon Apparition, Cremate, Ebony Charm, Fade from Memory, Harvest Pyre and Headstone all exiles the hedron from your graveyard without having to meet the requirements of delve. Don't underestimate the option to exile their Reanimate or Snapcaster Mage target, something that is very relevant in legacy and that Delve cant do.
