Perhaps Devour Flesh, and or Needlebite Trap. +1

Geth's Verdict over Devour Flesh in the sb if your mana can handle it. Also maybe Crucible of Worlds and Death Cloud.

I like the Transformative sideboard! Totally missed that! Devour Flesh or Condemn are great against Death's Shadow.

First: Land-count. Somewhat on the low end. You need more like 24 lands.

Second: Phyrexian Arena is modern legal, and is better than Underworld Connections, as it doesn't tap your land to draw a card (and both cards have same casting cost).

third: Brain Maggot is on the low end of power. It has toughness 1 in modern, so it's probably going to die as soon as your opponent wants his card back. You could add more exile effects and Wasteland Strangler to make something out of exiling, rather than discarding cards, or you could find a nice discard effect instead.

fourth: Devour Flesh and Hero's Downfall are probably not the cards you want. Fatal Push and Geth's Verdict are better, if only because they are cheaper. You could also use Gatekeeper of Malakir, if you want a bit more devotion.

Fifth: consider exchanging Nightveil Specter for Geralf's Messenger. Same devotion, but more resilient, and it hurts your opponent just on the ETB trigger.

Just popping in on the GDS/DSJ topic...

I think Esper Control or it's "Quicker" cousin Jeskai.

Play bad cards like Condemn and Devour Flesh

Hey ClockworkSwordfish thanks for the input! I'll be honest, I used to run a couple Alms Beast in the deck, but removed them since they were usually immediately dealt with. Sideboarding into them could be a good idea though. Thanks for the Wall of Shards idea, I didn't know that one existed! I used to have Condemn in the sideboard, I believe I replaced the copies with Blessed Alliance. Devour Flesh, while the lifegain is relevant, would be competing with Oath of Liliana which also has synergies with Enlightened Tutor and the planeswalkers in the deck. Also, I like the art way more. As for your criticisms, thank you. However, I have an alternate win-con with the guildmage, and my defensive presence is stronger than you think. Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate, Oath of Liliana, Dash Hopes, Benevolent Offering, and Swords to Plowshares all interact with my opponent while trying to keep me more alive than they are. While, I am near-creatureless, the removal/planeswalker package tends to help out in that department. I took a look at your version and it's very cool (get that False Cure out of the maybeboard though!!!).

Tainted Remedy wins are cool, but your deck has very little defensive presence - I feel like you could easily be locked down or bowled over before you can drain your opponent out! Wall of Shards and Alms Beast can be a great way to deter attackers, and they also become win conditions after the Remedy's out. Asides from that, Condemn and Devour Flesh are also solid removal that gain upsides when you have your key card.

You might be able to get some inspiration from my own take on the idea: Malpractice.

Devour Flesh is very good against the death shadow decks
