Yeah for real, we don't need a flame war over something empirical.

But I'll revert back to the first point I made about green and blue.

White / Red / Black are packed with vacuum power cards. They even have some decent card draw/cantrips

Night's Whisper

Cathartic Reunion

Wall of Omens

BUT what they don't have are:

Oath of Nissa

Traverse the Ulvenwald

Serum Visions

All comes down to the 1 mana cantrips.

If you just want cards from Hour and Amonkhet in your deck you should change the deck to Standard instead of Modern. While the deck will also be Modern legal, if it contains no Modern cards, could be misleading.

Cycle synergies from Hour and Amonkhet:

Drake Haven

Archfiend of Ifnir

Faith of the Devoted

Horror of the Broken Lands


Hieroglyphic Illumination

Shadow of the Grave

Pull from Tomorrow

Other discard synergies in Standard right now:

Call the Bloodline

Collective Brutality

Alms of the Vein

Fiery Temper

Collective Defiance

Tormenting Voice

Cathartic Reunion

Bloodhall Priest

Insolent Neonate

If you want to get into Modern with this strategy, these cards can be good:

Waste Not

Liliana of the Veil



Inquisition of Kozilek

Living End

Architects of Will

Was looking at your deck some more, and I have a few more ideas, like upping your demon count and a few reanimation spells liiiiike.....

Desecration Demon, Grave Titan, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Reiver Demon, Bloodgift Demon, Rune-Scarred Demon, Reaper from the Abyss, Overseer of the Damned

stuff like that...then you could put in reanimation spells like

Animate Dead, Reanimate, Ever After, Whip of Erebos, Sheoldred, Whispering One

stuff like could throw in Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice for card draw/discard

Maybe a zombie sub theme and add in Shepherd of Rot

Fun things like Tree of Perdition, Quietus Spike, Rage Reflection, Ward of Bones, Havoc Festival

If anything definitely add Anger to your deck

or just throw in 30 Shadowborn Apostle haha

If I repeated any cards already in your deck, I apologize. Either was happy building and kick some ace!!

Renegade Tactics is a red version of Slip Through Space you might like.

Also, Cathartic Reunion can make use of excess lands and such late-game for more draw. Also also, Counsel of the Soratami for another copy of Divination. if you're into that sort of thing.

The problem with Cathartic Reunion is first is the discard two cards, one of the possible outcomes of a perfect mana curve draws would be you left with 2 cards. Let's say you draw Cathartic Reunion, leaving you with three cards. You would be forced to discard two of those cards immediately since you'll need fresh cards from the library. What if one of those is Ammit Eternal or Hazoret the Fervent? To even oversee the whole structure of your library, I could deduce that you might need every card available for use. In which Tormenting Voice comes into play. You only need to discard one card, and that one card is probably a land or an extra card that you already have on the field.

Tormenting Voice? Why not Cathartic Reunion? Although its downside is draw 3, discard 2 as for tormenting voice, its 1 less for each, dunno, I'll try both, maybe favoring tormenting voice more

Thanks for the statistics on Combustible Gearhulk. He'd be the only reason for me to use red. Sure there's Cathartic Reunion but it sucks when it gets countered and you just end up discarding 3 cards. In the pro-tour(Japan), There was a Blue/White version that didn't do all that well. Now since it's been play tested by the pros, I feel like the deck is meant to be more fun to play with than competitive. Which is why I'd put in the Combustible Gearhulk. I think I'd even go as far as taking out the other targets you'd wanted to hit with God-Pharaoh's Gift or Refurbish just so it sees play. Haha.

LePhouque, thanks for your comment! I will take your suggestions into consideration.

What I kind of don't agree on is on removing Priest of the Blood Rite from the deck. It seems really powerful to me to consistently get a 5/5 creature token with Flying onto the board, to be honest, I considered this one to be one of the strongest 2 attack creatures in the deck. This would be my number 1 target for Buried Alive.

I didn't primarily intend it to be casted but to be put into the graveyard first, also synergizing with cards like Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion(which is included in the newer version of the deck) or something else.
