It does seem like ever so much goodstuff, that being said, Sun Titan does synergize with Selfless Spirit, Fleshbag Marauder and Krosan Verge.

Adding a 5-7 more fetch lands would make the Sun Titan much more powerful aswell.

I do get the confusion though, the deck lacks a clear victory plan, instead relying on powerful cards to threaten the boardstate all by themself.I would advise to focus on a few engines and one of two victory conditions, in this deck Purphoros, God of the Forge and the token generators appears to be the strongest candidate.

It looks like the deck might struggle with it's mana curve aswell, having a high average cmc and possibly not enough ramp to get there in time.

A few concrete suggestions Emeria Shepherd + Sakura-Tribe Elder allows you to put every Plains into play from your library.

Hour of Promise is fantastic for fetching both Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers.

For card draw I would be remiss if I did not suggest Reassembling Skeleton/Bloodghast + Skullclamp

The Bloodghast would incresae in power in synergy with Ashnod's Altar + fetchlands aswell, resulting in sudden ramps of colorless mana from a single fetchland drop, enabling big plays far earlier.

Adding both the Bloodghast + Reassembling Skeleton would turn cards like Buried Alive and Entomb into powerful mana efficient tutors aswell.

On a last note Demonic Tutor is better than Beseech the Queen in every way, but most importantly because it denies information from your opponents.

To make room for some of these changes I would start by taking a long hard look at your planeswalkers, they appear to be slow to impact the board and few of them plays well with your general strategy.

Only one of them looks like it's powerful enough to matter on it's own, that would be Elspeth, Sun's Champion

Report from last FNM, went 2:1:
Match 1 against dredge: First game was fast and i did almost nothing. Second game was much better thanks to sideboarding. I managed to remove some important stuff with Tormod's Crypt and buy some time, land Night of Souls' Betrayal shutting down Bloodghast and Narcomoeba. But still Prized Amalgam and Conflagrate was enough to kill me. I desperately needed some other graveyard removal. But Bojuka Bog didn't show up at all and i died with Nihil Spellbomb sitting on the top of my library.
Match 2 against another dredge: First game was straightforward, i bought some time thanks to Gifted Aetherborn, but that was all, no Bojuka Bog, my only chance to win before sideboarding. Second game i won because of board sweeper followed up by graveyard removal, Mutilate and Nihil Spellbomb. Used Bojuka Bog and lifelink before it to buy some time. Game was very long, in the end i had a lot of swamps and Lashwrithe was really powerfull and attached to lifelink creature the game was over. I survived the thanks to Arguel's Blood Fast. Draw cards at the end of opponent's turn and immediately transform on your upkeep, than attach Lashwrithe to anything and job is done. Third game was similar to second, lifegain to stay in game long enough to wreck opponent's graveyard and win because of extremely powerfull Lashwrithe.
Match 3 against storm: Opponent began. I discarded two cards from opponent's hand on turn 1 and turn 2. On turn 4 i was on healthy 27 lifes. Next i was killed by 29 Grapeshots :). Before sideboard discard is my only chance, but still i'm weak against combo. Second game after sideboarding: turn 3 Lost Legacy on Grapeshot with Night of Souls' Betrayal in hand. On his turn 3 with Baral, Chief of Compliance he made something like 100 goblins thanks to Empty the Warrens. On my next turn i landed Night of Souls' Betrayal (he had no open mana, so it was safe) and scooped. Game 3 was very similar to game 2, but no so fast. There were two turns, where i was just hoping (Lost Legacy was Remanded), but once i exiled all his grapeshots and had sweeper in hand i was calm.

Notes: Victim of Night is good budget removal for monoblack, but useless against dredge (Prized Amalgam and Bloodghast). Discard also useless against dredge, so before sideboarding i have almost no chance to win.Against storm, sideboard out all spot removal and let them cast Baral, Chief of Compliance or Goblin Electromancer and handle their wincons. They have usually one before sideboard but two after sideboard. Remember Empty the Warrens! But Empty the Warrens can be handled on sorcery speed on your turn, so have all sweepers in your deck. Be careful of Remand . Lashwrithe scales really good as game goes on. Great synergy with Arguel's Blood Fast and Rite of Consumption. In one game with 7 mana i played Abyssal Persecutor attached Lashwrithe for 2 mana and 2 lifes and immediatelly sac it to Rite of Consumption. 26 lifes swing in total:)

Mono Black Devotion isn't that great of a deck in modern. It can definitely win games but lacks enchantment and artifact interaction beyond discard. It's a slow deck that typically has to survive past the point most decks win games to stabilize. Also the ideal creature suite has an unapparent flaw. Bloodghast can't block, Geralf's Messenger comes into play tapped, Phyrexian Obliterator is a glorified wall, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a messily 2/2. It is however fun to pilot.

Another detour is that built properly you're still talking 1000$

Mono Green Infect can be upgraded to Simic Infect which I do believe is a Tier deck.

heyimcarter thanks for the suggestions, I've tested Bloodghast and he's a decent play, his only downside is the can't block. And this cost me a few games in early testing when there was a slightly more aggressive match-up. I like Claim, and will definately find a spot for it, or a similar card.

Interesting build, czarchops.

Hmm... just my opinion, but if you're looking to sac the vamps, you should make tokens (so you're not forced to sac your actual cards), or have a graveyard synergy that can bring them back. Supernatural Stamina is a good one, but let's go deeper =)

Blood-Sucking Token Makers: Bloodline Keeper  Flip: (semi-expensive$) evasive and will get out of hand if they leave it on the board -- Call the Bloodline: requires a bit more graveyard synergy, but can pump out tokens you don't mind saccing for value.

Graveyard Synergy: Bloodghast: (semi-expensive$) probably the best vampire for this kind of strat -- Driver of the Dead: not a great card, but works well to get one of those early drops back

These are just some quick ideas off the top of my head. I hope they help. Keep brewing!

cards like Claim or Bloodghast would be pretty neat. Or just about anything with flashback.

Razulghul on Liliana, Zombie or good stuff?

6 days ago

Hi all, I'm working on a stax/discard/Pox list for Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and I'm curious what people think is better Zombie tribal or good stuff? They are both pretty similar builds as far as non-creature cards go here are the main differnces:

Zombie Strengths:

Primarily zombie tribal has the advantage of numerous Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar combos(less reliable in good stuff builds), Patriarch's Bidding and Endless Ranks of the Dead(to offset Smokestack).

Good stuff is pretty self explanatory Massacre Wurm, Rune-Scarred Demon, Bloodghast, Bitterblossom etc.

Just looking for any opinions, thanks!

You may want a bit more ramp. It should be really easy in green, just to ensure that it'll work out for you. Card draw with Phyrexian Arena or Fecundity. Maybe Bloodghast for replay-ability?
