Faithless Looting Discussion

Well, whiel I think this has some good ideas consider the following:
- Prowess creatures are useless once you assemble the combo.
- Any damage done with them is nullified once the combo is up, since the combo deals infinite damage.
- The two strategies this deck has have 0 overlap
You have 6 dead cards once you do not have all the pieces of the combo, and more than 20 dead cards (creatures, bolt, slip through space).
The easiest solution is to drop one part of the deck - ither the delver and prowess aspect or the combo aspect has to go as they are clashing.
My suggestion is thus two-fold:
Drop the six cards that make up the combo. Include more copies of prowess cards, delver and cut the mana curve even lower.
Drop all creatures and include token generating spells instead(Krenko's Command). this will allow you to keep the combo but include another one for redundancy - Polymorph + Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (or Tidespout Tyrant or any other big dude if budget is a concern). Dig deeper with Faithless Looting and do not hesitate to include more Remand to give yourself time.

Disciple of the Vault and Reckless Fireweaver are some of the cards that can combo with two Sharuum the Hegemons in the graveyard. Since one isn't in your colors, maybe find some room for Reckless Fireweaver? I'd bring Tormenting Voice down, since Cathartic Reunion allows you to discard two cards, and Faithless Looting can be flashbacked. Possible -2 Tormenting Voice, -1 Nahiri's Wrath, for 3 Reckless Fireweaver. Some extra combo for your deck.
Also, love the deck. +1

Ok... erhm... stating the obvious: If you need to fill your graveyard for fast delve creatures, you should play fetchlands. You should probably also play Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek over Faithless Looting. Most jund decks care a lot about card-advantage, and Faithless Looting is -1 card on turn 1. Besides that, there are rather few plays as strong in modern, as picking through your opponents hand on turn 1 and removing the best card they have. It's a lot better than trying to do it in turn 4.

I like Swerve. It combos well with Echoing Truth and allows you to switch targets to lands. Electrolyze could be good, Faithless Looting could work, Browbeat could be good. Remand is just so strong I would probably run 4.
The deck looks fun. GL.

Hey there! Looks like a solid deck to me! There are a few cards that I would consider adding, though, mostly just EDH staples:
- Blasphemous Act
- Chaos Warp
- Reforge the Soul
- Temple of the False God
- Mind Stone
- Outpost Siege
- Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip
- Hammer of Purphoros
- Forgotten Cave
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- Ogre Battledriver
- Faithless Looting
- Zealous Conscripts (goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki)
- Dualcaster Mage
- Magus of the Wheel
- Mana Geyser
- Burnished Hart
- Dictate of the Twin Gods
And then some cards that work particularly well with Purphoros:- Rakka Mar- Flameshadow Conjuring- Tooth and Claw- Pia and Kiran Nalaar- Goblin Warchief- Goblin Matron- Ogre Battledriver- Embermaw Hellion- Burn at the Stake- Goblin King
Some cards that I would consider cutting:
- Dragon Fodder
- Krenko's Command
- Fiery Gambit
- Molten Birth
- Thatcher Revolt
- Generator Servant
- Harsh Mentor
- Kari Zev, Skyship Raider
- Zurgo Bellstriker
In any case, sweet deck! Good luck!

The thing about Modern is unless you're playing a monocolored deck you can't really get away with using all basic lands and expect good results. If you have anything resembling a budget, the place I recommend starting is finding the cheapest fetch lands in your colors, possibly trading up, and getting ahold of a set of the fast lands and shock lands. In plain terms you'd at least want 4 each of Bloodstained Mire, Blackcleave Cliffs and Blood Crypt. In interest of working on a budget I'll mention Dragonskull Summit isn't the best dual land but it did just get reprinted. Yes... Modern unfortunately has a pretty steep buy-in, mostly in lands, but once you have them they'll be used in many, many future projects.
Now... Where to start with your card choices? I understand and can very much see this is a work in progress, so I'll just be honest with you and say most of these are just... kinda bad, no offense.
Okay, I'll list off some better choices with synergy: you have Falkenrath Gorger. That's a step in the right direction. Next up I'd take a look at the following cards: Stromkirk Condemned, Stromkirk Captain. These two plus Gorger lets your guys get huge fast and makes them significantly harder to kill in combat, especially since off of Gorger you can flash in Captain as you're attacking so your Gorger and Condemned are suddenly a pair of 4 power first strike fatties on turn 3. The next two are Bloodghast and Asylum Visitor. Both are good discard options with or without Gorger and Visitor is 3 power for 2 CMC, and also a pseudo Dark Confidant if you play her correctly. Almost literally everything this deck could want in a 2 drop. The next two are beaters that function as discard outlets to keep the flow of your deck running steady: Heir of Falkenrath and Smuggler's Copter. Yes, a vehicle. I recommend Heir to anyone who can't afford Liliana of the Veil. It's a cheaper and much more aggressive way to discard, besides being a 2 mana version of Delver of Secrets for vamps.
Those enchantments are terrible. Call the Bloodline is my pick for the worst vampire support card in existence that's not Feast of Blood (that card is all kinds of terrible). For your noncreatures, it's your call in regard to draw spells but I'd only keep Faithless Looting at most. For removal, you want mostly generic stuff. Try and trade for a set of Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt and Terminate, then mix/match them as your meta dictates. Kolaghan's Command if you can get one might be useful as a one-of. It's not a great card but for flavor/support you can play around with Urge to Feed as well.
After all is said and done, with any space you have left, you can try to squeeze in as many Vampire Nocturnus, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, or Olivia, Mobilized for War as you want. I like the idea of a one-of Captivating Vampire if most of your guys are small. You could main or even side Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Olivia Voldaren, both of which are strong enough to side or sometimes main in non-vampire meta decks. Kalastria Highborn or Viscera Seer can be okay insurance cards if you're fearing a boardwipe.
I think the most important thing I'll tell you here is that too many discard outlets is bad. Don't fret too much about madness or not, you have gorger, and if you can save up for bloodghast/visitor you should be fine. You don't wanna be casting your killspells at sorcery speed too often. This is why if you can only take one Bolt is better than Fiery Temper.

i think just the 2-of Hardened Scales and 2-of Burst of Strength can go for filling in some of the other areas. the only creature you have with +1/+1 counters is a 2-of Satyr Hoplite, which i dont think warrants the slots for the scales. im thinking maybe another creature or 2, maybe another Blossoming Defense, Atarka's Command, Rancor, or something could also take the place of the "counters matter" cards. probably cut a land as well. 23 might be too much for your super low curve. probably tick up to 4 Wooded Foothills and cut down on a few basics, down to 20 or 21, probably... maybe even 19. your curve (realistically) stops at 2 mana, so you really dont need to get mana flooded. having something like Faithless Looting (saw you mentioned it in the description) or Cathartic Reunion would help pitch out lands or whatever you dont need.
