Devour Flesh Discussion

Rurara_Rahura on Diplomatic Immunity

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.

For lawls, you could use Holy Day and/or Darkness or Batwing Brume. Hatred is also grand.

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.

Ok now it's name is "Death Shadow" http://mtgtop8.com/event?e=14981&d=290616&f=MO

It's main card is Death's Shadow the deck wants to dmg him self to get the life under 13, now the Death's Shadow gets bigger with each point of life the controler loses. So when we turn this point around: When the player has to sacrifise a Death's Shadow to Devour Flesh he gets hin life back to 13, so you may be kill another Death's Shadow for free, because they become 0/0.

To have some Sideboard against this deck can be a good choice at ther moment, because it is one ofe the most popolardeck, at the moment
