Devour Flesh Discussion
1 week ago
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

lagotripha: Auratog isn't as strong a blowout as the engine I already have prepared, and I'm not too keen on sacrificing non-tokens. Likewise Devour Flesh, Sin Collector, Nevermore and Runed Halo don't provide enough power to compensate for not drawing one of my combo pieces.
Call the Bloodline is a good card to add, but I rarely draw anything that I don't want to play.
Porphyry Nodes is just a little too risky.

Auratog for blowout wins? Devour Flesh to turn that auratog into an insane lifetotal and back out of adjani draws? Call the Bloodline to turn dead cards into lifelinkers stalling the game? Sin Collector Nevermore or Runed Halo for combo? Porphyry Nodes/Timely Reinforcements for stall?

I won't hold it against you, but Selenia, Dark Angel is quite fantastic. You just have to incorporate a few extra tools into your deck. Some examples being Soul Conduit and Platinum Angel. Use Selenia's ability (Only cost is paying life so you can "In response to her ability, activate her ability") to put yourself low (or kill yourself if you have any ability to keep yourself alive) then switch your life total with another player killing them instantly and putting yourself back up quite a ways.
Regardless, I love me some B/W Angel decks.Kaya, Ghost Assassin would be good in this along with any of the Sorins. If you end up with a higher CMC deck, Sorin, Grim Nemesis wouldn't be too terrible as he hits all opponents for your "draw".
Maybe Fumigate over End Hostilities? Also, it looks like you're trying to gain life off creature deaths? Devour Flesh is ok, but it gives life to the player who lost the creature, not you. In that case you might be better off just running Swords to Plowshares.
Not sure how helpful any of this was, but good luck on your endeavour sir/ma'am.

I actually play a version of this deck as a casual modern deck that I sometimes bring to FNM. Trust me, you want to play the four copies of Wall of Shards. The wall is a pure beast, and you can simply not pay the cumulative upkeep, or you can sac it to Devour Flesh to gain 8 life.
As far as the mana base goes, you don't actually need fetches or shocks, believe it or not. You do need at least 2 Shambling Vent, 2 Isolated Chapel, and 2 Concealed Courtyard, as well as 2-4 copies of Ghost Quarter. (Ghost quartering your own land to activate landfall with a remedy on board, to cast two Rest for the Weary to make your opponent lose 16 life is just priceless.
Another card you simply need a playset of in the mainboard is , Blessed Alliance. It's so good and you can make them sac an attacking creature and give yourself 4 life while you dont yet have a remedy on the field. Since I don't have the budget for the Idyllic Tutors, I run two copies of Dimir Machinations, since it lets you search for tainted remedy.
