Devour Flesh Discussion

Some removal probably wouldn't hurt either, Doom Blade, Victim of Night, Go for the Throat, Devour Flesh, Ulcerate, Geth's Verdict. Or maybe some cheap discard to supplement the hippie? Duress, Despise, Distress

The deck itself is good, i just dont know how viable it is honestly...
Like for example, there are some cards in here that are basically trash compared to other cards in Modern. For example, why play Dissolve when you could have Mana Leak? Why play Syncopate for the same reason? Devour Flesh just is a bad card. Even some Tribute to Hunger would be better. And even lands, instead of painlands play fetches and in place of some Scry lands play a few Esper trilands. Even some Celestial Colonnades or Creeping Tar Pit.
The last thing I'd say, is planeswalkers and board wipes are very bad in Modern compared to standard. In Modern, you wont need 4 board wipes in your deck. Usaully once you wipe the board once you will be good. And walkers, are just meh in general. Elspeth is a lot of mana to pay (getting Remanded really hurts). She isnt a terrible win condition, but in the end, all the bolts your opponent was savin just kill her immeditaly. Jace is just bad in Modern honestly. You usaully get one -2 off of him, and then Lightning Bolt comes down. And the +1 is pretty bad honestly.
If your deck has really been doing as terrible as you say it has, than try out this list and see how it does. But i just strongly think that one of the Modern Esper lists you built would be better, just make some tweaks based on the meta.
I hope my idea didnt seem harsh :P

@ pryoplasm: Vastwood Hydra might be good 2-of that I'd be willing to test out. Devour Flesh sounds like something I'd put in a deck, too, so I'll try that one too. As far as using Mer-Ek Nightblade or trample, I have a couple Tuskguard Captains in there, but I am considering abandoning them in favor of two more Abzan Falconers. On the other hand, I'm also considering the exact opposite, lol. thanks for all the suggestions!

When I ran a golgari deck similar to this in standard with RTR/theros blocks, I had fun with Vastwood Hydra and Devour Flesh, that way you never really knew what was going to get through, gain some life, and put 2x the hydras counters on something that wasn't blocked. maybe also consider Mer-Ek Nightblade for deathtouch and something for trample.

Caharin, I do have both those cards, but not in the deck because they're too specific to a certain player, and my meta is mostly multiplayer, so they're not as effective as, say, Innocent Blood or Barter in Blood:
Devour Flesh was originally in, but Cruel Edict does the same for the same cost (just at sorcery speed) without the drawback. Likewise, Tribute to Hunger is  extra mana but I gain the life instead.
I'm definitely keeping those cards in mind if I find myself needing more sac cards, or specific creature-heavy players in my playgroup I wish to torture.
I stuck a Maybeboard into the decklist here, a short-list of cards on the brink of entry (that typically got cut to make room for other cards).
