Castigate Discussion

One last thought -- I wouldn't go any lower on your targeted discard. The information it provides, in addition to crippling an opponent's opening plays, could prove invaluable. If the grave bothers you, then try something like Castigate, Transgress the Mind, or Appetite for Brains instead (although I'm aware that doubling the CMC of your targeted discard is no good, either).

Hm, sweet build. I like this.

Well, I'd suggest going a bit down on planeswalkers, and swapping Castigate for Tidehollow Sculler, then you could run some Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and boardlock your opponents even more.

Anyhow, loved your deck. +1

Castigate's and Sin Collector's are just too good not to be mainboard. they constantly save your wincons from removal and Boardwipes, also they trigger your mimic.Beckon Apparition isn't half bad either, instant 4/4 grave hate and a flyier... thats at least interesting.

Well... nice deck and +1 for me :)

After testing this out with my play group for a few weeks. I have come to the conclusion that cheap draw is necessary in the deck, and Sign in Blood makes the most sense. Phyrexian Arena is another option, but I like the cheaper, more immediate draw from Sign in Blood. Also trying to keep this deck modern legal otherwise I'd consider Necropotence. Inquisition of Kozilek, Contaminated Ground and Vindicate are all great at stalling the until I can unload the big spells with Crypt Ghast. Against mono-black however, Castigate or some other equivalent is better in the 2 slot.

not sure id consider this "control" more of a slow midrange deck.

how about Binding Mummy, Tidehollow Sculler and Vile Rebirth? they add the "control" element to the deck.

also while the zombie lords are useful, Plague Belcher may be a better fit here (modern is good at mass removal) or Death Baron to make your zombies to attack into/block.

also consider swapping Despise for Inquisition of Kozilek/Thoughtseize or atleast Castigate

other modern cards to consider Mana Tithe, Smallpox, Intangible Virtue and Quest for the Gravelord.

If you are talking about the Finishers, there are definitely some great options you could choose from to budget this build, some of your options are Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Gideon Jura, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Divinity of Pride etc. The removal suite really is what it is, and there's just not much change you can make there. The manabase could work without the Marsh Flats, and instead play something like Isolated Chapel. As for the discard suite, the closest you can get is Castigate or Blackmail, but I'd highly advise against it since you really want to cast a discard spell turn 1.

ZackBinks, I have not yet read through all the comments and updates so I apologize if you have answered this before, but what do you think would be a good budget substitute(until I get a pair of them) for Thoughtseize? I have two Castigate and thought about running those for the time being, or do you think one of the cheaper spells like Duress would be better in it's stead?

Leonin Arbiter seems good here along with Ghost Quarter. Dawn Charm is nice with Isochron Scepter. I agree with the others in adding Path to Exile and Inquisition of Kozilek. For what to take out I would suggest Nightmare as it is too expensive and doesn't impact the board much, Identity Crisis because it is way to much mana for something that doesn't help at all with the early game, Castigate because there are so many better options, and Dismember because it doesn't work with Isochron Scepter. Hope this helps
