Demigod of Revenge Discussion
5 days ago
Well the problem is caused by the trio of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia's Lieutenant & Kitesail Freebooter
With chump blocking they can survive long enough, to pump up some creatures with Thalia's Lieutenant to the point where 2 Hollow One on turn 2 is just not good enough.
On the off chance i play 1 or more Demigod of Revenge i can beat this problem.
But Kitesail Freebooter makes executing this plan very hard.
Even more so if paired up with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, who makes hard to loot for Hollow One/Demigod of Revenge, and brutally punishes when i keep a 1 lander hand, on the virtue of multiple loot effects.
And due to Aether Vial & Collected Company this can all happen at instant speed :(
It feels like the demented lovechild of death and taxes, and merfolk - only it gets bigger, and does so faster...
(ofc Torpor Orb would mean game, but it needs to be in the opening hand (or first looting) to achieve anything against such a fast deck - so i don't know if i am able to run it in big enough number to affect the matchup)
The matchup just seems miserable - maybe they had a very good hand - but i feel that the deck is just not able to handle this.

Don't underestimate the power of Chandra, Torch of Defiance +1, or Infernal Plunge ;)
When it comes to deck thinning, its generally is a non issue i agree.
The problem is that i have 15 lands.
Lets say i fetch 3, and discard 1 land to some looting effect.
"Yay"! i just reduced my chances of drawing a land by a ~1/3...
...which is bad in durdly matchups, where i like to win on the back of hardcast Demigod of Revenge if i can't finish the opponent of with early game aggression.

I completely agree that Flameblade Adept is the best 1 cmc creature for this deck.
(Monastery Swiftspear is second, and the third place is taken by Insolent Neonate due to its menace & interaction with Fiery Temper (over Goblin Guide)
But my deck is slightly different as i gave up Bloodghast, for the ability to ramp early into Demigod of Revenge, via Infernal Plunge & Chandra, Torch of Defiance - with the added benefit of being able to pull of T2 Blood Moon & and a painless mana base.
Btw, what is your opinion about reducing your land count - which is possible due to cantrips, aka the so called "xerox effect" - i was able to get away with running 15

What's you plan against grave hate?
Since it means you loose Gurmag Angler, and that your Bloodghast become borderline useless (and Flamewake Phoenix also loses some value)
I would wager that if the opponent plays Rest in Peace T2 on the play you simply loose (and 2x Thoughtseize) is a very weak insurance.
Leyline of the Void is even more brutal
And even artifact based hate can damage the gameplan pretty radically, as 2x Ancient Grudge is something that is not always drawn.
I found that Thalia, Guardian of Thraben simply beats my version of the deck, what is your experience against that card? any ways to deal with it (if that's necessary for this version)?
Demigod of Revenge mandates mana ramp.
Since getting to 5 mana on turn 5 is never guaranteed - and this big beater is even better if it can be played on turn 3, or turn 4.
However the card is great against counterspells (even better online, as some people counter the creature before the reanimation trigger resolves),
it can also fly over Death's Shadow, or the monstrosities in eldrazi tron,
it can be nearly as explosive as the combo of Become Immense + Temur Battle Rage in the RG version,
and it doesn't fold to grave hate like Gurmag Angler
And the same mana ramp that allows casting it on T3, also enables T2 Blood Moon...

Hi Mandalorian, thank you for taking the time to give your point of view !
I primary played this deck as pure Mono Black with Gary or Demigod as finishers with moderate success. My main issues were Enchantements and Artefacts, this is why i made a red splash.
I could play a classic Mono Black Devotion deck with Phyrexian Obliterator, Bloodghast, Geralf's Messenger and Gary, or a pure Blitzkrieg deck with Demigod of Revenge and Blood Moon ; but i really wanna try to play an uncommon deck with Obliterator and Demigod fighting together and it seems impossible to play the moon without cutting the horror. I will still try the Blood Moon way for sure.
That said, how to improve my attempt ?
Even if the synergy with Faithless Looting and Collective Brutality looks pretty cool, i don't think Bloodghast is a good fit. He can't block and the key here is tempo, this is why i prefer Gifted Aetherborn.
About Wrench Mind : it's a fresh input and i'm still trying it. Before the add, i was playing two Collective Brutality and a fourth Terminate. I also tried Fatal Push as a 2-of but i think i need more fetchs to make it really effective.

I've tested it here on Tapped Out and I'm impressed by the speed of it. I do like the amount of draw power this deck produces and agree that Collective Brutality might best be served in the sideboard for specific match ups.
I'm tempted to suggest Demigod of Revenge as you'd have no trouble dumping them in the graveyard and getting one back with Call to the Netherworld if necessary, and those things hit HARD. But five mana might be a bit of a stretch and I honestly don't know what you'd remove for them. It's a fun thought though.
Again, great deck. I'll be watching this space.

Demigod of Revenge is crazy strong, but why splash for & ?
After all there is plenty of the same effects in ...
Burning Inquiry, Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion
It even has creatures that are pumped when you discard like Flameblade Adept.
(but demigod is insane mainly because it reanimates through counterspells, and because it has haste and evasion to get in)
Heres an example list
Adanto Vanguard + swords
Chromatic Lantern/Cascading Cataracts + Fist of Suns/Legacy Weapon seem to be broken, but no one even tries to use them.
P.s.: contrary to the popular netdecker belief, modern has a lot of hidden gems, since the cardpool is enormous, thus this list has the potential to go on for loooooooong.
