Ok, a couple things:

  • Soldevi Adnate can't sacrifice mana rocks, only black or artifact creatures. To sacrifice my mana rocks I'd need Priest of Yawgmoth. I thought about including them, but since my ramp is spilt between creatures and non-creatures, most mana rocks have low CMCs, and every creature that survives to 8 mana is an extra tutor for Razaketh, I felt they weren't worth it.

  • Infernal Darkness doesn't cut the mana produced by lands. It just changes the color. I thought hosing everyone might be worth slowing down a little, and you can just sacrifice it the turn you want to go off. I'll probably cut Contamination, it was in there from when tutoring Bloodghast seemed like a good idea.

I'll look into those other edits.

Bloodghast is a very good card but expensive too, a playset would cost around 50$, and I want something not too expensive and "easy-to-play", if you play with fetchlands and a competitive manabase it could be awesome but this is not the case.

Sir_Jinx, thanks for the reply, I guess you're right.
I've played Crucible of Worlds alongside Bloodghast and the Pox itself. It used to help me get the Ghasts rolling and to recover faster from the land sacrifices. After I dropped those, the Crucible became a rather dead draw. Even as a sideboard card I don't think it could do much for me.
And I still need to try out Lingering Souls and other cards the white splash would allow beyond the classic mono-black

I just put together a decklist. The tricky part is getting enough creatures to go off while ramping. It's definitely going to be broken though. All you need is 2 to 4 other creatures besides Razaketh and you can go off.

Possible combos using card you'd be playing anyway include:

You can also tutor Sacrifice for an 8 mana ritual that ensures you go off same turn.

You can cut down on the creatures you need to sacrifice by tutoring Buried Alive for anything that need to be in the graveyard (or Bloodghast) and by using Rings of Brighthearth to double the tutor ability.

So... Yeah. There's a very good likelihood that Razaketh will get banned.

I'll post the decklist when it's a little more refined.

Yup: Verdant Catacombs, Kalastria Highborn, 2x Blade of the Bloodchief and 2x Bloodghast, plus everything else for 9,90. That made me an happy child C:

Kalendae on † Tribus Sanguinis Crudelis †

Thanks for the upvote seshiro_of_the_orochi.

Indeed, there are no threedrops because of several reasons. Some key twodrops effectively cost 3 if you want them to have an immediate effect on that turn like Kalastria Highborn or Gatekeeper of Malakir. Sometimes you just want to play two cards for 1 + 2 CMC on T3 like Bloodghast and Viscera Seer, or you play a 2 CMC card and leave 1 land untapped for being able to activate Mutavault to use as a defender or for being able to cast Fatal Push as a potential answer on the opponents turn. I found myself using T3 more often than not for one of these combo plays here, but there are more.

The only worthy threedrop I can think off is Liliana of the Veil, but I decided not to run her as explained in the "Noticeable Missing Cards" section.

Vampire Nighthawk is indeed a strong card and I used to run him, but as explained in the "Sideboard choices for difficult match-ups" section: Gifted Aetherborn is slightly better because you want to use these guys against aggressive decks. 1 CMC difference overall is a big thing in Modern, and this is particularly true versus aggressive decks. One might argue Vampire Nighthawk has flying, which is strong mechanic, but once you have Vampire Nocturnus running, you're not missing anything at all.

And no Bloodghast or Nether Traitor?

It looks like you took the more 'fun' route with this and not straight combo ;) not hating.

Teysa was my first combo deck. Wish I still had the decklist. It was OP.Turn 4 win most games. If i got stalled, then easily turn 8 win.

@Facebeater yeah. It's not perfect by any means but it can work. I'm not sure if those would conflict with each other since they both trigger at upkeep's start. I believe, and I'm not sure on this, but I believe they both go on the stack and you'd choose which one resolves first. I know that in cases where both players have an effect like that the turn player has priority. At any rate Bob is a much better option but he's a bank breaker. If you want consistency, Viscera Seer is actually amazing, especially if you can afford Bloodghast.
