Devour Flesh Discussion

A few ideas:

1-2xBojuka Bog - as a land, it doesn't cut into your mainboard spells. After removing opponents creatures, it could be useful to keep them from using any graveyard shenanigans.

Devour Flesh - if you're going to sac, sometimes it might be nice to gain life.

Skirsdag High Priest - I don't know if you have enough creatures to support this, but the self-sac pretty much guarantees this spell will be viable.

Sideboard Pithing Needle to deal with planeswalkers.

Dash Hopes is fun when an opponent has 5 or less life.

Also, maybe Bone Splinters or Devour Flesh?

In those cases, I'd side board Devour Flesh and put in Grasp of Darkness. That in combo with Tragic Slip should take care of anything with indestructible. Hexproof can be tricky to get rid of, but luckily I've seen very little of them.

I'd recommend getting rid of Devour Flesh and replace it with Go for the Throat or Ultimate Price. Those allow you to get specific creatures off the field for the same cost.

I'd also recommend some combination of Duress and Despise.

What is the budget for the deck?

marcobou I have Far / Away for hexproof. may be it must be replaced by Devour Flesh or from harder to cast Geth's Verdict. i agree with you about Mana Leak but Deprive is harder to cast and delays the game as you must return a land in your hand to cast it as an additional cost and is harder to cast as it needs 2 blue mana but i will try it! thanks for the suggestion! i was thinking about putting Disrupting Shoal as i can cast it without mana but i need to do big changes to this deck for better synergy.So i will remove 2 Mana Leak a Far / Away and a Shadow of Doubt to put 4 Deprive and test this deck again to see how it is going.

Accumulated Knowledge (4 of) gets good as the game goes on, Negate is usually more relevant than Essence Scatter, and Devour Flesh is great removal.

Fiochv2, Devour Flesh can be used in any circumstance, while Swords to Plowshares is target-creature. Say, you are dealing with a hexproof, indestructible creature, then Swords to Plowshares won't do a single thing.

Josh50, Swords to Plowshares is even better than Devour Flesh! Thanks for the great suggestion!
