Drown in Sorrow Discussion

Another way this scenario can be avoided is with soft wraths like Flaying Tendrils or Drown in Sorrow, which are both pretty cheap. They can clear out the smaller creatures and your land destruction can prevent big ones from hitting the table

Unfortunately while Gravecrawler would be amazing for this deck, both it and Cryptbreaker and beyond the budget. Graf Harvest doubles up on the menace that Lord of the Accursed provides and the exile mechanic would be counter-productive to both the Liliana's Elite and the Diregraf Colossus.

Drown in Sorrow looks like a winner. The zombies should be larger than 2/2 and even if they are not it feeds the graveyard.

Cryptbreaker is a good card to add possibly Grasp of Darkness is a low cost high removal card Drown in Sorrow is good for soft board clear Graf Harvest is good to make it harder to prevent blocking your zombies Dread Wanderer

I'd rather use either Drown in Sorrow or Flaying Tendrils instead of Infest. They are both cheap, and has additional scry, or exile ability.

I just play tested this deck against one of my own Modern decks, and I gotta say I love this deck. It's crazy fast with a lot of potential. +1!

BUT, it matches up pretty poorly against a control deck that's got proper answers. Your deck is super prone to Doom Blade and Drown in Sorrow. Now granted, Judge's Familiar is a nice card, but it just doesn't do a darn thing against a guy who knows how to manage his mana. If you're gonna post a sideboard for this deck, I'd suggest putting in a few answers against control like maybe Autumn's Veil or Display of Dominance.

The deck I tested this against was this one: Silumgar's Vault of Goodies

Both aspects of Tasigur, the Golden Fang make it a good card, it has a solid body that can be casted for cheap and its activated ability is a card advantage engine that helps you fuel other delve cards like Murderous Cut and Gurmag Angler.

You have a lot of removal options: Fatal Push, Dismember, Disfigure, Go for the Throat, Doom Blade, Hero's Downfall, Murderous Cut and many more.

The usual sideboard for a discard deck includes Leyline of the Void for dredge and delver matchups, Drown in Sorrow or Bile Blight against weenie and token decks, Smallpox is really good against tron and bogles, Surgical Extraction to take away combo pieces and Pithing Needle because it is great against a wide variety of things. It all depends on what you're expecting to play against.

Snacrifice on Wydwen The Budget Gal(<15$)

lilgiantrobot Thanks for the suggestions!

I hadn't realized Consume the Meek had gotten so low! I don't mind barter/innocent blood, but I'd rather run targeted removal like Murder or Tragic Slip. However, you got me thinking about Drown in Sorrow which might get cycled in.

I don't really see Rise from the Tides being win-con, even if I replaced all the auras with instants/sorcies, since EDH always feels so mass-removal heavy. Same with the pike That's down to taste though.

A lot of the aura choices are based around doubling-up on saving Wydwen, to make her really annoying to remove(because either they pop one of the totems, or something like Shade's Form, or you just dump the mana and bounce her to hand.)-and remember, those 'return to play' enchantments can be layered on to opponents creatures, then killed with Tragic Slip or Extinguish All Hope to bring them back under the player's control.

Artful Dodge is amazing and I can't believe I forgot it though, so it's getting put in for Vampiric Link. Dropping Dismiss into Dream for Drown in Sorrow since I realized I don't have too much that targets anyway(it's from when I was fooling around with the build to decide what to do).

GoodLuckGuy on Vamp it up! Budget modern Deck

I've been staring at this list for 3 hours now, I got some opinions.

I'm running off the assumption that this is a budget build, so I'll spare you the classic "wHy ArE yOu NoT rUnNiNg ThOuGhTsEiZe!?"

I'm starting with your sideboard since it clearly needs help and nobody else seems to be bothering with it. Generally, you slot cards in your sideboard to help take care of certain matchups, mono-black has some trouble with this but there are still plenty of budget options in modern.

Consider running one or two board wipes to help you out of a jam. Drown in Sorrow is great against aggro decks and avoids killing most of your 2-3 drop creatures for some nice synergy. Languish can bail you out of grindier matchups and can kill most of the creatures in the format.

Graveyard hate is an important part of every well-designed sideboard, lest you fall victim to graveyard shenanigans. Relic of Progenitus is a staple of this archetype, exiling slow in the early game, and fast in the late game. Scarab Feast can castrate a graveyard quickly and with precision, while Extirpate will make sure you never have to see a dreaded combo piece or removal spell again.

Pithing Needle can turn off some really nasty cards including (but not limited to): Cranial Plating, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Arcbound Ravager, or literally ANY planeswalker.

Lost Legacy and Memoricide completely end your opponent's chances of casting their game-winning combo.

Finally, no matter how much I pray, Do or Die is not and probably never will be legal in modern.

I like your use of budget hand destruction, I would suggest upgrading Duress to a 4 of, removing creatures from you opponent's hand usually isn't as good getting rid of their answers. Still running some Despises or Harsh Scrutinys in the sideboard could be useful in a Zoo or Tron matchup. But if you really want to step up your T1 hand destruction game, now is the best time to buy some Inquisition of Kozileks; it was just reprinted so they're real cheap.

I highly recommend running more removal (4-7 spells), and getting rid of Essence Extraction; It's just not that good in Modern. Dismember kills pretty much everything in the format outside of a Tron matchup, while Victim of Night is essentially unconditional. I know this deck is budget, but investing in some Fatal Pushes is your best option, they are still fairly affordable and it's the best removal spell in the format, so it's only gonna go up in price if you wait.

On to your creatures; you are playing a dangerous game letting your opponent draw so much with Master of the Feast, more power to ya if you've had success with it, but in my experience, you should never let your opponent draw cards like that. I personally love Bloodlord of Vaasgoth but I have something fun in the next section that might make you replace him. As for Yahenni, Undying Partisan, I don't think it has any place in this deck, it doesn't offer good value for its aristocrat ability and it's not gonna do much until it's been out for a long time.

I know you said you didn't want to go the madness route, but I found some vampires that use it well and will keep you in mono-black.

Voldaren Pariah is one of the most dangerous bombs you could be running in this deck. forcing your opponent to sacrifice three creatures is going to straight-up END most games. I HIGHLY recommend replacing Bloodlord of Vaasgoth for this.

Asylum Visitor can get you some really nice late-game draw condition on a 3/1, she's like Dark Confidant but not $40.

Now I know what you may be thinking: "But GoodLuckGuy, those both have Madness, I don't have anything to enable that!" Well, worry no more you hansom fellow, for their is a vampire tribe lord that does just that, and so much more. I present to you - Stromkirk Condemned. Not only does this let you drop your shiny new vampires for their madness cost, but it also gives late game value to your land and hand destruction top-decks. It is simply the perfect card for the modern man's vampire tribal deck.
