I run a very similar deck. I went more of the sac-control outlet though.
Some cards in my deck that do really well, that you don't run are:
well in that case, may i suggest Auriok Champion
, Soul Warden
, Soul's Attendant
and while not a human Suture Priest
. and for an exiting Blood Artist
. and another sac outlet that I think might work well would be Blood Bairn
Alright! Time to get this deck to the true terror that it needs to become!
+ This allows only snow covered swamps to have double mana when tapped. If you use regular swamps, your opponents will have this ability as well.
Liliana of the Dark Realms Pretty decent for 4cmc.
If you add in any of the above, consider taking out some of your land cards. Might want to bring it down to 35-38 lands. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is good for two reasons, the first being it makes utility lands like Unholy Grotto tap for black instead of colorless. The second is that it's great for swampwalk creatures.
ETB Creature cards I'd recommend more because of Mike's ability. Here are some idea's:
Grave Titan Yeah, you swing, get two zombies, he dies, comes back and you get two more zombies. Be careful if don't have a way to remove the -1/-1 counters on your creatures-- Oh wait, you're running black. Silly me.
Harvester of Souls Is always great when it comes to creatures dying and coming back.
Blood Artist Might be good in this deck if you're killing and bringing stuff back.
Solemn Simulacrum Draw and land search.
Massacre Wurm Can turn into a pretty nasty board wipe, gets around indestructibility too.
Other cards you might like:
Hatred If you're playing 1v1 a lot and can do early game damage
Dark Prophecy A creature dies, comes back and you draw and lose a life.
No Mercy For when you know they'll be playing token decks or high aggro.
Sudden Spoiling In case you want to turn their double strike 8/8 Angels into 0/2's for a turn...
Toxic Deluge One of the best kill spells in black. Goes great with creatures that help you gain life.
Grey Merchant of Asphodel Is a MUST. I know he's in your maybeboard. When you get your deck going and you can land this guy, sac him with an altar then bring him back.. That's massive damage right there.
These are just some quick ideas. Once you know how you want the deck to work I can probably help you out more. Keep me posted!
Makes me wish I hadn't traded away my playset of Blood Artist haha. Just playtested it twice against my werewolf deck and it wrecked me, both times in different ways.
Unfortunately Endless Ranks isn't an instant or sorcery so it wouldn't be protected by boseiju. Killing wave is a really good card, but it's situational. I run them in my cruel black control deck with things like Sanguine Bond , Exquisite Blood and Sangromancer . But i only have a total of 6 creatures in the deck. This deck seems way too creature heavy for something like that. Then again, with the suggested Blood Artist combo, sacrificing creatures is in your best interest. This deck looks very strong now as it is though. I would maybe take out a zombie apocalypse in favor of on more Gary ((Gray Merchant of Asphodel )) Gary is such a mean mean mean card. He has won me several games.
Thats fair. I have another idea that could be a game winner. Killing Wave +Blood Artist combo. Especially with that many zombie tokens, and the devotion to black. Now I would suggest you use +2 Boseiju, Who Shelters All if you're going to be keeping the endless ranks. Because Modern is a format ran on counter spells. Maybe not as much as Legacy, but enough.
@noobplayer17: Im not a beliver of having that much mana. Every time i have tried that i end up manaflooded. I might add just another swamp. the Blood Artist is just crap the way I see it. I have the Gatekeeper of Malakir in the maybeboard. The Quag Vampires has swampwalk and with Rakish Heir its just so powerful! In my area there are alot of black decks theese days!
