Demon of Death's Gate Discussion

I think Demon of Death's Gate would be a nice inclusion here for one of your fat creatures to beat face.

Immortal Servitude definitely has some good potential in the deck to allow a whole lot of creatures to return to the battlefield. I completely agree with the Ornithopter observation, but alas it isn't meant to be.
As for Quest for the Gravelord it once did have a place in the actual physical form of this deck, however I never found myself with it in hand to utilize by the time I pulled off the Demon of Death's Gate combo. It may make its way back in however soon.

Honestly, it works well to have all the blue mana, just so I can get the combo out easier. All the black symbols really don't matter, the only things that I care about casting is the Shadowborn Apostle and Jalira, Master Polymorphist, everything Else I kinda depend on cheating into play.An especially good combo is to get Demon of Death's Gate with three Shadowborn Apostle and you can get down a 9/9 on turn two.Richrox

Westvale Abbey Flip is really nice with Endrek Sahr, giving you a 9/7 haste, flying, indestructible, and I think trample for 5 Thrulls. Demon of Death's Gate is another nice beater that goes well with tokens. You also can try out Voracious Null, Flesh Carver, Deathgreeter, Gutless Ghoul, and Hecatomb.
Conspiracy allows you to get around Endrek Sahr's second ability, although you can always sac creatures in response to it.

Here's some changes I would make to this list (as always, depending on budget and collections):
+4 Gravecrawler in order to get the Vengevine triggers to work for you.
-2 Phantasmagorian, you have enough other discard with the Cathartic Reunion and Faithless Looting
-3 Shambling Shell, there's enough other dredge cards to work here, let's get something else+2 Demon of Death's Gate, getting a couple of heavy hitters, that cast for no mana
+2 Conflagrate, for direct damage to a target.-2 Life from the Loam, from the mainboard
+1 Life from the Loam, in the sideboard
+2 Ancient Grudge, in the sideboard
+3 Overgrown Tomb or something similar
+3 Blood Crypt or somethign similar
+4 Savage Lands, depending on how fast you want the deck to run
-8 Mountain, to make room for the new lands
-6 Forest, to make room for the new lands
+3 Swamp, to support cast the black spells
Additionally, the deck needs to get cut down to 60 cards. I've never had a lot of consistency from decks bigger than 60 cards. Take a look and let me know what you think.

I'd like to start out with admiring your devotion to building a new dredge deck using different cards than most other dredge decks utilize. Regretfully, there are some problems with this deck that would prvent this deck from working the way I think you want it to.
First glaring problem you have to fix is the deck list is illegal and would get you disqualified from any modern event that this list was registered at.According to: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Printings.aspx?multiverseid=159247Urza's Bauble is not Modern legal. The Masters Edition for MTGO is not a Modern legal set. And the last time that card was printed in card format was Ice Age.
I think the Serum Powder works against you by exiling to many cards from your deck. I could see too many scenarios where that will bite you more than help you.
I do like the idea of using the Demon of Death's Gate in the deck. Unfortunately, if they get dredged, there's nothing in this list to get them back. I would use Call to the Netherworld paying the madness costs in conjunction with Phantasmagorian discard ability.
I'll see if I can throw together a Modern legal dredge deck and post my list here in the next few days after I've had a chance to try it out. Then we can compare notes and build a solid list that works.

Ornithopter would be great if it were black, because then it could be free casts for then sacrificing for the Demon of Death's Gate however they would need to be black to be a capable sacrifice. Immortal Servitude looks like a great card to include!

nice, I've made a deck that sacrifices creatures as well, maybe if you have time you could take a look at it? Death at the Gate of Hell this deck focuses more on a turn two Demon of Death's Gate, mostly 1 mana creatures, but in this deck I have no way of returning my creatures, I just use Tombstalker to take advantage of so many cards in graveyard to cast that for free.
