Demon of Death's Gate Discussion

Another tip: Westvale Abbey is outclassed pretty strongly in Modern by a card that used to be commonplace in vamps: Demon of Death's Gate, who might honestly be a viable side again since so little removal kills him besides like Terminate, Walk the Plank, and Path to Exile. Dismember, Lightning Bolt, Abrupt Decay, Kolaghan's Command and Fatal Push don't kill him.

Your mana curve is far higher than your amount of lands can account for. I would consider adding more lands until you have around 38 or so. Is this a budget deck? If it's not, please consider

Cavern of Souls,Badlands,Underground Sea,Volcanic Island,Blood Crypt,Watery Grave,Steam Vents,Most Fetches, and Bojuka Bog. If you were to add these, either consider removing the bounce lands or add Amulet of Vigor to try to counteract the "enters tapped" clause.

Patriarch's Bidding seems under utilised here, try adding Entomb or Buried Alive to try and "cheat" in some big guys, you could also try Reanimate or Exhume.

I'd consider removing all 12 Shadowborn Apostles, as there are other ways to cheat things in like Omniscience or As Foretold, or, my favourite, Demon of Death's Gate

If you'd want some more "tribal" ideas, you could look through Angelic Devotion.

Lord of the Void, and Demon of Death's Gate are pretty awesome. Xathrid Demon is pretty neato, but risky.

Demon of Death's Gate seems like an easy way to cheat a big baddie into play.

The7thBobba Thanks a lot man! Is there a better tutor I could look for over Diabolic Tutor? Mana cost is a little high for my current curve. It would help a lot mainly for pulling out Demon of Death's Gate, maybe even an Apostle's Blessing!

There's the beginning of an idea for a good deck here, but you need focus, and your mana curve is way too high. You also have an illegal card in your side. I'd add maybe 2 nighthawks, Captivating Vampire and maybe Vampire Lacerator. Early game power = good. I'd cut everything over 3 mana here and also ditch Sign in Blood as you do have better draw power. Also this is begging to run 4 each of Fatal Push and Tragic Slip mainboard. Killing Wave could actually work here, and I suggest sideboarding Demon of Death's Gate. My initial two cents. Good luck, young neophyte.

I think Demon of Death's Gate deserves a spot in the 60 (possible turn 1 play)
