Devour Flesh Discussion

You mentioned in another thread you had tried /R /U /G variants to moderate success, is the same true for /B? My local meta is pretty high in control / mill / burn and being able add 4 Scoured Barrens and swap out Soltari Trooper and Cenn's Enlistment for cards like Syphon Life, Castigate, Raven's Crime or Devour Flesh would be an asset in those matchups.

I'm also pretty curious about Gods Willing over Stave Off. I can see how in a deck with no card manipulation scrying is valuable but losing the soft-counter for Inside Out or Rancor seems questionable.

Well you have access to Asceticism, Wrap in Vigor, Blossoming Defense and which are pretty good at turning off removal. Imp's Mischief is also pretty good at making removal bad.

Crypt Angel has decent utility and pro white can go along way and Marauding Knight could be pretty backbreaking against a monowhite deck.

I completely overlooked spot removal and yes I would personally up the number of spot removal I'd play. Here's a short list of spot removal I'd consider for kresh:

Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Ultimate Price, Innocent Blood, Vendetta, Slaughter Pact, Chaos Warp, Dismember, Ashes to Ashes, Snuff Out, Terminate, Putrefy, Devour Flesh, Diabolic Edict, and Oblivion Strike ( I suggest this only if your avacyn player plays Iona, Shield of Emeria.). Hopefully some of these will prove to be helpful

True, Bloodghast would probably benefit my deck, but I was originally running this deck with 4x Tormented Soul and it became a pain to not be able to block anything. I already have Nether Traitor so I don't think I want to drop 65 bucks on Bloodghast's.

I forgot to add them but Smallpox and Altar's Reap/Costly Plunder were in the first iteration of this deck but I moved them to the sideboard.

Devour Flesh didn't make it into the deck but it was definitely an honorable mention.

As for Voldaren Pariah  Flip, I love her. She is brutal and will trigger both sides of my deck mechanic for sure, but I am going to save her for the Grixis commander deck that I am building. That deck has the recipe for some fun and brutal combos. It started as the Mindseize Commander deck but I'm making Thraximundar my Commander and Nekusar, the Mindrazer his Lieutenant. Draw, discard, madness, sacrifice, flashback/other play from graveyard effects. It should be one hell of a deck.

I've made decks like this before and I must say that Bloodghast is pretty much a must have in them. I'm also a big fan of Plunge into Darkness, Smallpox Altar's Reap, and/or Devour Flesh in this kind of deck. Plunge into Darkness kinda fills both roles of Altar's Reap and Devour Flesh by itself, but they have their own advantages and disadvantages (no life loss with Reap, can target opponent with Devour Flesh as well as yourself, etc).

I've also been playing with using Voldaren Pariah  Flip for this kind of strategy but she can be a little tough to build around since she rewards self discard as well (cuz of Madness).

What about Big Game Hunter, Gatekeeper of Malakir, To the Slaughter, Devour Flesh (SUPER spicy vs Death's Shadow), Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder ??

And if you're willing to go slightly over budget, there are some shenanigans you could do with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Forbidden Orchard or Illness in the Ranks.

Toshi is a dude I have ALWAYS wanted to make work somehow, as this super corner case, pseudo-Snapcaster effect.

Might be worth it to play Cabal Ritual, Unearth, Duress, and/or Altar's Reap/Costly Plunder for card draw or Devour Flesh for life and avoiding Echoing Truth issues. I've also seen the suggestion of Peat Bog which is great for the mono-color of this deck but it could be almost as good to just play a bounce land so that you don't lose it after two uses and splash a color with the slight disadvantage that it might be harder [but not much harder] to ensure you always have those two blacks for rats or gary.

I'm thinking of splashing in white. Having Shambling Vent as another permanent to activate the Demonic Rising and Homicidal Seclusion enchantments. Maybe subbing in Path to Exile instead of the Devour Flesh.

What do ya'll think?
