Hey Boroswins!

Thanks for the feedback! I really like Ritual of Soot as well as Cry of Carnarium. Both cards are always in my sideboard, I just sometimes adapt their quantity according to the meta I see around. I worked on a deck a bit past week, you can see latest changes - more different early removal as well as Ashiok and Narset in the sideboard against grave and card drawing decks. I've found Fungal Infection being surprisingly good against explore dudes and mana dorks, considering playing even more copies of it.

A got to do some modern competetive gameplay with this deck and made some notes:

  1. Contrary to expectations the deck didn't generate very many tokens.
  2. I would have liked to have more removal.
  3. Deck could be faster and more interactive.
  4. Duress doesn't hit a target everytime.
  5. Opponent will sideboard gravehate and also maybbe combo distrubtion.

The changes I made:

Removed: 1x Merrow Bonegnawer , 1x Irresistible Prey , 1x Renegade Tactics , 1x Raven's Crime and 1x Rakdos's Return .

Inserted: 2x Young Pyromancer , 2x Fungal Infection and 1x Dark Salvation .

These changes seem pretty good. I'm looking forward for the next FnM, or similar, event!

I would get rid of Vicious Conquistador , Fungal Infection , and Sovereign's Bite . Maybe you could use some things from your maybe board, but Discovery / Dispersal , Cast Down , and Fight with Fire (for Lyra) have a place here?

Looks good, but would you consider splashing red for Risk Factor , Angrath, the Flame-Chained ? Another Card that you could benefit from is Priest of Forgotten Gods , especially when Fungal Infection is boarded in,... Maybe you want to take a look at my Black Judith and Tell me what you think about it? Good Luck with your Deck!

Additional thought: filling out your 1-drop slot with more two-for-one cards. Basically variations on Doomed Traveler .

Probably only 6-8 total 1-drops are necessary for consistency. A good set to pick from though.

FullmetalWes i also thought Fungal Infection would be a good add. it lessens the destroy cards you have but i think it could be beneficial. gonna test it out and if it isnt great ill side deck it lol

I think that the most efficient version of the deck has already been made with that Golgari Midrange, but if you just like these cards then i'd suggest cutting 2x Journey to Eternity  Flip. Probably cut your ramp cantrips and replace them with removal you dont really need the ramp because you will be looting with your explore triggers. Cast Down and Drill Bit . Lurking Chupacabra is only hurting you here because its too expensive. If you want Poison-Tip Archer triggers then i suggest cheaper creatures or maybe Token creatures, example Graveyard Marshal and Fungal Infection . Both Vraskas should also be considered becaus they present huge threats on the board. Vraska's Contempt would be a good sideboard inclusion against Teferi and other game ending threats. Murder is not bad, but do consider that cast down is cheaper and vraskas contempt hits planeswalkers. Also if you go the token route then i always like to throw a couple of Ritual of Soot in there. because if you have a big board then you can get a lethal amount of Poison tip triggers.

What sac outlets do you have for the Demon of Catastrophes ? Really the only thing you have is the Fungal Infection tokens, which works well but you can't totally rely on that, and the rest of your creatures I dont think you really want to lose?
