Devour Flesh Discussion

I would say some combination of Doom Blade, Victim of Night, (Devour Flesh/Tribute to Hunger) and if it's not too expensive, Go for the Throat, would be better. (If you can afford Go for the Throat, play some.)

Also Hydroblast isn't legal either. Sorry :(

Hey! I just started playing recently and after realizing I wasn't even halfway to finishing my Jund deck, I decided to flesh out a similar Rakdos control deck to yours. I like your list, especially Beseech the Queen which I may very well add to my own deck as a 1 of. It's nice for finding that 3rd or 4th Demigod of Revenge.

I would recommend going up to 2x Crumble to Dust in your sideboard. Without any other land destruction, I feel like you will really want to see this vs Tron and even vs UW control. Another possible alternative is Shatterstorm over By Force. If you like the ability to play it on 2 or 3, maybe try a 1-1 split between the two to see which serves you better when you sideboard it in. Vandalblast or Shattering Spree are options as well, though I understand Shattering Spree isn't the cheapest of cards. That being said, being able to pay just 1 to destroy 1 artifact is nice.

One last suggestion is depending on your meta, adding in a 1x or 2x Devour Flesh to your mainboard might be alright vs something like Death's Shadow and it's alright vs boggles until they get out Leyline of Sanctity as well. You can always slot it out if you don't need it in the matchup, or use it on yourself for the life gain in the most dire of situations.

Besides High Market there's lots of ways to sac Child of Alara. Devour Flesh, Momentous Fall, Worthy Cause, and all sorts of other stuff.

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.
