Devour Flesh Discussion

What are your considerations for swapping white for black Path to Exile for Fatal Push only reason I recommend this is because you have things to revolt pretty consistent and it doesn't give the opponent an extra land. Your Sideboard could be slightly different if your still looking for the same effectsWitchbane Orb / Leyline of the Void / Devour Flesh (life gain doesnt hurt your wincons that much) you could also use this on your own guys to gain life in certain situations

I built this toolbox for mono black lists Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox. I'd consider Beseech the Queen because of your relatively diverse list- can allow a toolbox sideboard too. Could run Collected Company. I'm a big fan of Funeral Charm in discard setups cause that instant speed really makes the topdeck a lot better. Devour Flesh/Disfigure in a more burn oriented meta. Delirium Skeins does work in a control meta. Lotsa possibilities- consider transformational sideboards as your manabase could easily support functional 7 rack or full aggro if you dedicate the whole sideboard to it. Good luck

If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears. I'm still not quite sure whether I should run Condemn & Devour Flesh or go the route of Pacifism & Oppressive Rays. On the one hand, the idea of this deck is to delay as much as possible, while building up both sides of the board for Congregate - so that's where Pacifism & Oppressive Rays (plus any other cards of a similar vein that are in Modern that I've not seen) come in - but on the other hand Condemn & Devour Flesh act as hard removal and a second win con aside from Congregate.

Possibly remove the removal in favour of the enchantments, and keep the removal cards in sideboard to board in, I'm not sure.

I also presume there is something better than Read the Bones in Modern, so if anyone has any suggestions for replacing that.

MagicalHacker on [MDN] Tainted Remedy Deck- Need ...

Hmm the only thing I can think of is needing some more consistency, but the only thing even close is using Tree of Perdition to undo any lifegain you give your opponent and helping your board. Then, you can tap the tree later once you get your tainted remedy, basically allowing you to start giving your opponent life before you resolve the remedy.

Plus after you make their life total 13, you can also Devour Flesh yourself for sick lifegain

Shocker on Jund

Your mana base is off. As you can see, your two biggest groups are black and green, and yet you have red equal to those. A few shock lands like Stomping Ground would help.

Keeping it budget, I would opt for Victim of Night or Doom Blade over Devour Flesh. Slaughter Pact, Kolaghan's Command, Abrupt Decay and Collective Brutality could all find their way into the main or side board.

I like the creatures, but Tasigur, the Golden Fang may be a good addition.

Jund runs Dark Confidant so Phyrexian Arena may be a good budget substitute. Cost effective planeswalkers could include Liliana, the Last Hope and Chandra, Torch of Defiance to name a few. Crazy how those are actually cost effective when compaired to Liliana of the Veil.

I know it can all add up quickly. I think you have a good core deck. And honestly, I like the straight forward side board you have. I tend to get too fancy with mine and lose focus.

Ghosthunter39 on Instant Tosh: just add water!

Sorrowseer: I originally had thought of that but Devour Flesh gains a bit of life compared to them losing a life.
