Fetid Heath Discussion
1 week ago
4x Dismember with 4x Dark Confidant is also pretty dangerous. I'd cut some Dismembers for Never / Return, which has the upside of being a reasonable discard target. I think 4 Confidant is too much here anyways, it is a bit counter-intuitive to run it in a Chalice deck when you want to be hitting 1 and 2 mana spells.
I'm also a bit skeptical on Copter it is definitely Modern playable but I'm not sure this is the right home. Your 2CMC slot is already flooded as it is, I'd rather get some Bloodghast for Pox and Brutality.
Any reason why you decided not to run Liliana of the Veil? I've seen the full playset in pretty much any regular Smallpox list that had success.
Anyways, cool deck idea!

Looks pretty similar to the old standard B/W control deck. If you want to make some upgrades to fit the modern format I would lean your removal more towards Fatal Push and Path to Exile instead of Grasp and Ruinous Path. I think it is a pretty creature heavy deck to have sweepers like Languish but if you do want sweepers and cant afford Damnation then you could play Wrath of God which will nab some of the bigger creatures like Reality Smasher. If Duress and Transgress can be upgraded to Inquisition of Kozilek that would be great too. Concealed Courtyard is a fairly cheap way to upgrade the mana base as well. Overall I think its unique to the control decks in modern and is a fun place to start, it just needs a modern makeover to make it a little more on par with some of the decks you are going to run into.
If I were to make non-budget suggestions:
Archangel of Tithes cant be searched up so maybe Linvala, Keeper of Silence instead

Take these over the guildgates
And you need these
These are good too. You want as few come into play tapped lands as possible, but the scry lands are always good.
Venser's Journal is a tossup if you want it or not

Nobody goes all Thoughtseize no Inquisition. Inquisition already hits 90% of threats. Do you think it's worth the 2 life (I understand it works well with Unlife)?
Fetchland mana bases rarely play more than 2 of any shockland. You never need to fetch more than 2, so why not play something with more upside, like Fetid Heath, Shambling Vent, or Concealed Courtyard?

Nice deck! I agree with KGW that you could stand to remove the Secure the Wastes, or at least move them to the sideboard. You have too few lands to get much value, and they lower your density of creatures for Aether Vial.
I'd also either add more lands or cut Brutal Hordechief- it's the weaker 4-drop compared to Sorin, Solemn Visitor imo, and you'll have a very hard time casting it with so few lands. Aether Vial helps, but if you tick it up to 4 you'll never get to use it again.
Finally, I think you should test out Herald of Dromoka at some point. It looks weak on the surface, I thought so too at first, but giving your whole team vigilance can be invaluable in racing other aggressive decks, letting you attack with your whole team and still have blockers the next turn.
Finally, I'm not a fan of the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Black is your secondary color, so all it's really doing is letting you tap your fetches for mana without cracking them, but all that saves you is 1 life and you only have 4 fetches anyway. I'd swap it for Windswept Heath, and possibly one of your basic Plains as well, to give you more fetches to trigger revolt for Fatal Push. Mutavault or Fetid Heath would also be strong choices for the slot if you don't want any more painful lands.

Hello, I have a tokens deck, they are fun to play for sure. Your deck looks good, and would probably do fine. Here is what I'd change though, in order of importance.
- Add 1 Path to Exile, ditch Soul Warden
- Add 3 Thoughtseize or 2 Thoughtseize and 1Inquisition of Kozilek, ditch other Soul Warden, 1 Intangible Virtue, 1 Sorin, Solemn Visitor.
- If you get 4 more fetchlands, 1 Fatal Push, ditch Dismember
- Add 1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, ditch 1 Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
Your manabase is 95% as good as it could be. IMO, to make it perfect I would:
- Add 4 Marsh Flats (By far the best option, but 4 other Plains/X fetchlands would help a little. Ditch the 1 Swamp if you don't get Marsh Flats.)
- Add 3-4 Concealed Courtyard, ditch 4 Isolated Chapel (These are really only good if they are your only non Plains/Swamps.)
- Add 1 Fetid Heath, ditch 1 Windbrisk Heights
- Vault of the Archangel is questionable. On rare occasion it will help you, its just hard having non-white producing lands, when you have 4 Spectral Procession. It also won't help you cast Tidehollow Sculler and Zealous Persecution.
Hope this helps and good luck!

DanteBeleren Thanks for the great tips!
I was thinking along those lines that compared to other decks I had seen I was a bit creature heavy. Conveniently my latest order came in yesterday just in time for some FNM. I was able to upgrade the mana base significantly.
Last night was the first time I got to pilot the deck, so I didn't have much experience with the creature interaction and determining who to cut. Ultimately I went with removing:Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Basandra, Battle Seraph, Reaper from the Abyss, and Victory's Herald.
The biggest issue I faced last night was a counter heavy/destruction meta. This is what I will have to focus on moving forward.
Question for you though, does Amulet of Vigor negate the coming into the battlefield attacking abilities from cards coming in with Kaalia?
