Go for the Throat Discussion
6 hours ago
Really had to think about this one, since it is already a tight list. Desert of the Glorified... is it worth it a slot for cycling? Vault Skirge might be better as removal like Go for the Throat or Grasp of Darkness? Wish you could find room for another Mirage Mirror... feel like you can do some dirty things with instant speed copies of stuff. That's really all I can think of.

@Squirrelbacon - The thing with Gifts Ungiven is it's a build around me card. It doesn't synergize with any of the delve threats, and it requires you to play slightly unoptimized cards to allow it to have more flexibility. A true Gifts Ungiven deck is using cards like Go for the Throat, etc. to allow you to do more than just cast gifts for reanimation.
Obviously the card is very powerful, but it just doesn't feel great in a deck like this.

I'm curious as to why you chose Silumgar, the Drifting Death as your commander. Yes, it's a great card, but for the most part you won't have enough dragons to really make it worth him being your commander. If you like Silumgar, I'd recommend switching to Dragonlord Silumgar. He just works better with your deck theme in my mind.

A few thoughts:
- I'm not sure about the Consulate Dreadnoughts. I love the card (playing it for a while in Standard), but you have to have Wall of Tanglecord/Guardians of Meletis and Kin-Tree Invocation and the Dreadnought itself ... seems like that might be a little too inconsistent for my tastes.
- For sideboard, I'm almost always in RG or Mono-W, so I'm no familiar with the best Black options. But I almost always include some Artifact/Enchantment hate, like Nature's Claim, Naturalize , or Unravel the Aether. Edict effects are almost always good too, like Geth's Verdict or Devour Flesh. And maybe a sweeper, like Ratchet Bomb. More removal is always an option, like Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, or Fatal Push. And Funeral Charm is a good multi-purpose spell.
Good luck (and good skill) with the brew! And draw well!

Vindicate overload for like 3x cost I don't feel like would be unfun. It'd just be Planar Cleansing and Armageddon at once for which is a preposterous cost. At I could see that being a bit crazy, but even then, not entirely oppressive.
Thing is, a lot of cards are not written for Overload, which would actually keep the mechanic in check. The actual Overload cards that were printed, like Mizzium Mortars specify "creature you don't control", or vice versa. Overload Murder would not be Plague Wind, it would be Day of Judgment.
Now, some cards might be silly or heavily exploitable due to their restrictions, depending on the cost. Like say, Go for the Throat or Doom Blade. And this is just on the topic of Removal, but for "Destroy all nonblack creatures" or "destroy all nonartifact creatures" would be a bit crazy.

I will start out by saying that some of the suggestions made by the EDH player aren't great--no offense intended, of course, but some are just too slow for modern. Dropping any number of Spellstutter Sprite, Fatal Push, Remand, or Spell Snare is just a bad choice; the Sprite is a cornerstone of all Faerie decks (and even some competitive non-faerie tempo decks), Fatal Push is literally the best black removal spell right now, and Remand and Spell Snare are both staples in blue decks. I assume he suggested dropping those for hard counters that can hit higher-converted mana cost cards because they're good in EDH, but three mana counterspells are pretty much a no-go in modern because they're too slow and much of the time Mana Leak is a hard counter.
Anyways, your deck is shaping up pretty nicely so far. I'd play the full set of Remand because it's so powerful, but that's personal preference. Your sideboard could use a lot of work. Here are some suggestions along with a general outline for your sb:
2-3 Counters for interactive matchups: Countersquall, Negate, Dispel, Spell Pierce, maybe an extra Spell Snare (it's very good when you're on the draw g2, good enough to warrant a sb slot though not essential)
Collective Brutality has been bolded because it's honestly the best sideboard card in black, and is the primary source of life gain in black decks. it's amazing against burn and pretty good against most other decks.
