Devour Flesh Discussion
2 days ago
Sweet commander. I wonder about including more instant cards for value, such as:
- Geth's Verdict
- Diabolic Edict
- Devour Flesh
- Ad Nauseam
- Spoils of the Vault
- Vampiric Tutor
- Plunge into Darkness
- Treacherous Urge
- Urborg Justice

A few thoughts:
- I'm not sure about the Consulate Dreadnoughts. I love the card (playing it for a while in Standard), but you have to have Wall of Tanglecord/Guardians of Meletis and Kin-Tree Invocation and the Dreadnought itself ... seems like that might be a little too inconsistent for my tastes.
- For sideboard, I'm almost always in RG or Mono-W, so I'm no familiar with the best Black options. But I almost always include some Artifact/Enchantment hate, like Nature's Claim, Naturalize , or Unravel the Aether. Edict effects are almost always good too, like Geth's Verdict or Devour Flesh. And maybe a sweeper, like Ratchet Bomb. More removal is always an option, like Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, or Fatal Push. And Funeral Charm is a good multi-purpose spell.
Good luck (and good skill) with the brew! And draw well!

-Birds of Paradise is legal in the Brew-Off. It's the best mana dork, no contest. I don't like Arbor Elf that much, as he's not always active. Given your wealth of mana dorks, Gavony Township might give you extra late game.
-Lingering Souls with your self mill is great. It stalls aggresssive decks and gives midrange decks fits. Control can deal with it a bit easier, but it's still card advantage. Did I mention those Gavony Townships?
-Sever the Bloodline is okay, but I'm not sure you want to be wasting a removal slot for it. That's just something that will be borne out in testing, and it's great at answering a lot of popular threats. Abrupt Decay, Putrefy, Hero's Downfall, Devour Flesh... so many options.
-If you need a discard outlet, instead of going for the rickety 4C plan, you could play Liliana of the Veil. She lets you bin cards, gains card advantage with the help of flashback spells, and stops Geist of Saint Traft/Thrun, the Last Troll.
-Fiend Hunter is similarly not exciting to me. This format has a lot of efficient removal, so all he does in a lot of games is give your opponent an extra ETB trigger and some tempo.
-Blood Baron of Vizkopa is amazing. Lifelink helps you stabilize against aggro, and it has protection from so many of the format's best spells. I remember your reaction to Stormbreath Dragon (and my reactions to losing to it a lot), and Blood Baron is the WB equivalent.

I like this budget list. Maybe it would be good to test with a few spells that make opponents sac creatures to deal with indestructible creatures and creatures that can't be targeted? Something like Devour Flesh or Innocent Blood is probably budget enough.
Have fun playing!

Looks like a super fun deck! Against Bogles you could try Crackling Doom, Geth's Verdict, or Devour Flesh. They're all pretty cheap and don't make you sack your own creatures. And to help against Tron something like Sowing Salt or Crumble to Dust. +1

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.
