Devour Flesh Discussion

Some suggestions:

gogogonzo on First Mill and Control Deck

I think you may want to drop mill, you don't have much of it and would clear up more room for other cards. I would also suggest cutting Profane Memento because it really doesn't do anything to change the game. A straight up control deck just seems like it would be more reliable than a handful of mill cards that don't accomplish much in your current strategy. You could add more spot removal such as Devour Flesh, Murder , orVictim of Night.You cod also try hand disruption such as Duress. You may consider cutting one tomb because drawing into a second one just leaves you with a dead card in hand. If you are looking for a good win con you could try AEtherling, it is cheap and fairly efficient. Also, Dissipate is better than Chancel. If you do try the control route, more card draw would help such as Think Twice or Anticipate. Sorry for the wall of text, I hope this helps.

Key Cards:

Obzedat, Ghost Council - If you don't need aggression against your opponent then each turn you can gain 2 life and have them lose 2 life with his ability.

Devour Flesh - This can be used on yourself to possible sacrifice Alms Beast or Desecration Demon for some extra life or if your below you opponent.

Profane Command - Have your creatures gain fear until end of turn and having your opponent lose some extra life at the same time.

thanks pryoplasm and saturn999 for commenting! pryoplasm yeah i've thought a lot about Devour Flesh. I think the main reason i don't run it is because im usually only killing Abyssal Persecutor to end the game. And assuming im desperate enough to kill my own win con to get health, then i was probably gonna lose anyway. But I never thought to kill my own gary with a sac spell for the return etb. That's a really interesting concept I never would have thought of so thanks for that. Anyway, what is your opinion on Gatekeeper of Malakir? I feel like he might be worth it instead of Geth's Verdict

Id consider some Devour Flesh for it, sac outlet for the persecutor if you need it, or easy removal early game, or a decent way for gary to go the the graveyard to get whipped back, which I used to do when it was standard legal

OK, I will concentrating on using your commander's ability. Some things will be a tad on the costly side, but I have a feeling you won't mind getting them over time. Here goes...


cut Darksteel Sentinel, Endless Cockroaches, Kiku, Night's Flower, Reassembling Skeleton, Netherborn Phalanx, and Drudge Skeletons. -6

Add Ghoulcaller Gisa, Mephidross Vampire, Darksteel Myr, Myojin of Night's Reach, Phylactery Lich, Xathrid Slyblade. +6


Cut Engineered Plague, Feebleness, and Vile Requiem. -3

Add Phyrexian Arena, Hecatomb, Dauthi Embrace. +3


Cut Consume the Meek, Echoing Decay, Disfigure, Go for the Throat, Cower in Fear, Grasp of Darkness, Last Gasp, Murder, Rend Flesh, and Smother. -10

Add Dark Ritual, Burnt Offering, Songs of the Damned, Culling the Weak, Cabal Ritual, Bubbling Muck, Geth's Verdict, Chainer's Edict, Diabolic Edict, Devour Flesh. +10


Cut Whispersilk Cloak, Mask of Avacyn, Sacred Armory, Squee's Toy (haha, Squeeze Toy) andBaton of Morale (this is actually a pretty good card, but try explaining Banding sometime. Cut it to eliminate headaches). -5

Add Darksteel Brute, Isochron Scepter, Crawlspace, Silent Arbiter, Staff of Nin. +5


Cut Assassinate, Gruesome Encore, Mutilate, and Nausea.

Add Profane Command, Demonic Tutor/Demonic Collusion, Read the Bones, and Promise of Power.

The changes I've suggested should make your deck less likely to fall prey to itself. Basically, concentrate on your ability to kill anything and tutor up stuff that exiles.

A few other things to consider:Liliana of the Dark Realms, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Army of the Damned, Darksteel Colossus, Blightsteel Colossus, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Geth, Lord of the Vault, &c.

CrovaxTheCursed on Saint Trap will smash your face

This is pretty awesome. But I might add something to help against Devour Flesh or Foul-Tongue Invocation. They wouldn't cast it as long as you have your Angel token, so if Traft goes bye-bye, it seems like it would be hard to recover from. I suggest Shrine of Loyal Legions as it can be useful even if they aren't making you sacrifice. For something a little faster, maybe try Timely Reinforcements. +1
