Drown in Sorrow Discussion

Did some changes to deck:
Vampire Nighthawk is cut from 3 to 1, for three mana i want more. Often it is not enough. Added two Ruthless Rippers to lower the curve. Deathtouch for one mana is really good, opponent loose a creature or removal to deal with it. Fits my gameplan. Also can do some damage and surprise opponent thanks to morph.
Profane Command swapped to main instead of Drown in Sorrow. It is usually 2 for 1 and often i found myself in lategame with lot of mana and waiting for good topdeck. Can win the game if resolved in lategame.
Murderous Cut reduced from two to one. Thanks to Profane Command i still have two cards, that synergize with my graveyard and i feel it is optimal. I don't fill my grave fast enough to support 3 or more graveyard-matters cards.
Disfigure added to main. Fatal Push will be much better, but it is also expensive. This is cheap removal in both terms of mana and money. Still it has a lot of targets and helps me to deal with early aggression
Sideboard is slightly better now. 3 combobreakers, 3 graveyard hate (and 2 Bojuka Bogs in main) serves well. Sweepers comes really handy too...

Liliana, the Last Hope, Bitterblossom, Anointed Procession, Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Call to the Feast.

I don't know if you are aiming for budget but WB tokens can be a very good strategy. be aware though that Maelstrom Pulse, Bile Blight and Drown in Sorrow are things. I like what you got here and I hope you can make it work.

Infect or Boggles (probably Bogles).

Control decks in Modern rely heavily on spot removal, then refilling their hands with draw spells. Glistener Elf backed up by Apostle's Blessing or Slippery Bogle means they basically have to play something like Drown in Sorrow immediately. Otherwise, they risk losing on turn 3.

Boggles is especially good against Burn because of Unflinching Courage and Leyline of Sanctity. It also beats up on Tron with Stony Silence.

In my opinion Damnation is the better card. You should have enough interaction between Fatal Push, Thoughtseize, and Abrupt Decay to survive those go wide decks until you get Damnation/Creeping Corrosion online. I never found Drown in Sorrow to be much use ever. ...but Bile Blight is a completely different story.

Thanks guys!

The reason i don't run Vampire Nighthawk or Gifted Aetherborn against burn deck is that they would basically die the same turn after a Lightning Bolt... but i think i must try anyway.

Killing Wave is very good, i'll buy it and try it in place of one Drown in Sorrow, also i already have one Damnation and i must try it too sometimes!

I like Whip of Erebos but i find the cons to be: high CMC; having only 1x makes it a little hard to find when i most need it; being an artifact let both the Red and the Green decks to destroy it with absolute ease... but having lifelink available to all the creatures is huge!

Vampiric Links saved me a lot of times and the fact that i can put more then one on just one creature gives me huge life gain! Green can destroy it, but Red can't! I'll stick with them for now

What about Murderous Cut? What do u guys think of that compared to Go for the Throat

Also, I dont really see Drown in Sorrow being usefull in that matchup. Id be paying 3 mana to kill 1 arbor elf, 2 if Im lucky. It would be worth ot to kill 2 but I cant count on that happening

It's part of this current shitty meta that Eldrazi brought. Basically, Ponzu, D&T, Eldrazi, Tron, & Humans, & Aggro. Midrange is in a really bad position right now. Nothing worse than playing against Ponzu on the draw when they T2 kill your T1 land, followed by a T3 Acid Moss again killing your only land.

In your deck I would definitely add an answer or 2 capable of dealing with Primeval Titan and Inferno Titan. Probably go down 1 on the Remand and 1 Collective Brutality for a Go for the Throat or 2. Maybe cut a Spellskite or 2 for additional Fatal Pushes (MB) or an Abrupt Decay.

Consider cutting IoK or the 2nd Thrun from your sideboard for a single Back to Nature and Drown in Sorrow (forget the name of the colorless one)

Bile Blight instead of Drown in Sorrow ? Pros it gives -3/-3 until the end of turn and its an instant. Cons you can't scry.
