Bile Blight Discussion

you're right Fatal Push is great in this deck but without a true board wipe Bile Blight has been money good when taking out all my fairies built up from Bitterblossom. Ive been trying to squeeze it in, just seems to not make the final roster.

Try Fatal Push as a 1 mana removal spell in place of Bile Blight. I think that it will be much better, especially with so many engines to activate revolt.

Spellskite doesn't fit my meta well, as, besides a few obscure pump spells, I mostly want to be able to stop my creatures from getting countered, or a way past boardwipes. Prowess of the Fair, if not removed, gives my opponents a reason to not fire off a boardwipe, because I can easily regain my boardstate, whilst they are still crumbling behind their Supreme Verdict.

I haven't tried running any fatal push, because I don't like to run mainboard fatal push in a tribal. If push proves to be more useful, I'll stick them in over Bile Blight, I'm just looking for something to fill that spot; bile blight, grasp of darkness, or push.

I'd cut 2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for 2x Polluted Delta. The Shrine was great in standard but it'll constantly interfere with your double, triple, quadruple casting costs.

-1-2 Thoughtseize/Inquisition of Kozilek. 6 Discard spells feels right currently. I would rather have Fatal Push #4 than Thoughtseize #8

Relentless Dead is too slow on too small of a body in modern. I could see keeping 1, but personally I would rather run 2x Bile Blight and 1 Tasigur, the Golden Fang/Gurmag Angler/Bontu the Glorified/Erebos, God of the Dead/Kolaghan's Command instead.

Profane Command is a waste of sideboard space. I really don't think Tragic Slip warrants additional space either. If it's within your budget I would suggest 1x Sword of Fire and Ice or 1x Sword of Light and Shadow.

Crumble to Dust, Blood Moon, Fulminator Mage, Deathmark, Demon's Horn, Lifebane Zombie, Damnation, Phyrexian Crusader, Phyrexian Arena, Pithing Needle, Boil, Flashfires, Terminate/Dreadbore (in place of Go for the Throat) are all viable options as well.

Grasp of Darkness or maybe Sudden DeathI feel like more Terminates are better than Geth's Verdict unless you need Geth's Verdict to get Rakdos, Lord of Riots out.Also, maybe 4x Dash Hopes and 4x Bile Blight in sideboard?

You have to ask yourself, what matches are cards like Thought Scour going to improve??? None? Okay, it's not worth the SB space. The SB should not be deck extensions but cards that improve your match ups against things your weak against. In your case Control of both flavors. I'd also imagine your Burn match is pretty tough.

So for decks like BG/x I would recommend Suppression Field, Bile Blight/Marrow Shards, and stronger grave hate like Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace. Leyline of Sanctity and Pithing Needle are also valid choices.

As far as traditional control goes, you're really in a bad position. The best SB cards against it are in green (Choke, Thrun, the Last Troll) and the manland game plan isn't particularly viable for you either. Lastly your threat density isn't enough to not have to worry about counters. Hopefully someone else can offer up a viable option for you.

Burn is an easy fix. Dragon's Claw.

A few other cards I would suggest to consider are Anguished Unmaking as a 1 of, Illness in the Ranks, more copies of Stony Silence, and possibly Hurkyl's Recall (can be great vs Affinity but also Infect).

As far as Eldrazi goes. Fulminator Mage and Damnation are good but I feel like your deck can't support those cards. Pithing Needle hits quite a bit of things in their deck (including Oblivion Stone).

APPLE01DOJ thanks. you're probably right regarding the removal suite. ill add some Fatal Push (also helps with my turn 1 problem) and mix up my removal. Bile Blight seems like a fantastic card! ive actually never heard of it before and im extremely greatful for that tip because i suffer against Lingering Souls type of decks.

ima try a few copies of Gurmag Angler in the deck and see if i can fit the big beast in. other than Vampire Nighthawk (which iv strongly been considering other than the fact its another 3 drop) the others dont fit my theme of board controll to much and i dont know if would fit too right in here.

i like Lashwrithe because of the germ token and instant equip possibility. plus it can get huge in grinded games i guess. but i would try swords since theyv dropped in price. which would you suggest?

ill work on a sideboard as soon as i can =0 thanks for the tips on it appreciate it alot man.

Not bad, but that mana curve is concerning. I am worried you are sacrificing too much of the deck for Phylactery Lich, which is a fun card but I see a whole fourth of your deck serving him only and little else. While big bads are good you need to be doing something the first three turns in Modern or else you'll be playing catchup the whole game which is no fun at all. Consider smaller zombies with good value, like Cryptbreaker or Relentless Dead that way you gain board presence early and can survive until your big bands hit the field. Also, Think of token or mass removal for the sideboard like Bile Blight or Echoing Decay so you don't get overwhelmed.
