Advocate on Waste No Whispering Squids!

Pack Rat Seems like it could put all of that BB mana from discarded land to good use and I would run some number of Devour Flesh to mess with your opponents creatures or to sac a countered up Chasm Skulker in response to exiling effects like Banishing Light + Detention Sphere .

Fun looking deck though.

Looking for some input on this list for fnm this week, let me know what you think.

That's another reason Y I think well get Mutilate instead. Liliana of the Dark Realms Devour Flesh and Quag Sickness are all rotating out and Indestructable is slapped on everything these days.

I only support Athreos, God of Passage because of its interaction with a self targeted Devour Flesh and Whip of Erebos I have successfully cast the same creature several times, all the while gaining life.

I think this deck is very strong and it is simply awesome! I have been playing with this deck for a while and i have made a couple of changes

Removed 3x Read the Bones and added 3x Sign in Blood

Sign in Blood is very powerful in this deck since it is two mana and you can target your opponent to finish off your opponent

Removed 3x Doom Blade and added 3x Devour Flesh

Devour Flesh can be helpful in many cases unlike Doom Blade , Devour Flesh can kill any creatures your opponent has (including black) and it can save you if you targeted yourself.

This is the part where i am not sure if the replacements are correct

Removed 3x Flame-Wreathed Phoenix and 1x Young Pyromancer and added 4x Pack Rat

Pack rat is always good and can win you games easily

Removed 2x Young Pyromancer and added 2x Whip of Erebos

Most of the time i hurt myself from Thoughtseize and Sign in Blood so i need to gain life later

Removed 1x Swamp and 1x Mountain added 2x Mutavault

Cuz pack rat ;)

Thanks for reading and i will be waiting for anyone's feedback!

Could probably drop 1-2x Rakdos's Return . Maybe add in the 3rd Underworld Connections and another land? 24 is a good count for 10 drops over 4 cmc.

I'd also throw Duress in the sideboard in favor of the 4th Thoughtseize if you can afford it, maybe add an Erebos, God of the Dead or fill out the 4th Devour Flesh .

I could see In Garruk's Wake as a one-of

what do you do against hexproof? hope on drawing enough Devour Flesh to kill their creatures?

I've been playing a Grixis build. I added black to include Tymaret, the Murder King , Devour Flesh , and Dreadbore . My version is a bit more midrangey and less aggressive, but imo it is way more consistant:

Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is a must at lease a one of and Dissolve is better than Psychic Strike no doubt and i would look into Elixir of Immortality less doom blade more Hero's Downfall also lose the Traumatize by the time you get the mana you're dead also it needs more removal such as Disperse or Cyclonic Rift and maybe Devour Flesh or something of the black removal variety and i think this needs Dimir Charm kills pack rats kills greens mana ramp and also kills lots of agro cards and the looking at the top three cards is huge but a different thing you could do is run Deathcult Rogue for a different win condition because noone runs rogues and if you ran him you could use Paranoid Delusions with the cipher Price
