Hand of Death Discussion

hnki on Upgraded Obby (Duel Deck)

About Black Removal:

The 2x Doom Blade has been downgraded into 2x Hand of Death. 2x Eviscerate has been added. In general, I'm slowing down the speed of black's removal to avoid feels-bad turns when Green attempts to resolve a fatty only to get blown out in tempo because black left open two mana. However, I added more removal overall because I gave green massive upgrades in both speed (It has dorks now! A lot of them in fact!) and to the power of its finishers. I'm carefully watching the balance for now and if necessary I will add the Doom Blades back as 2x Dark Banishing.

Sadly this kinda deck wouldn't hold up in my meta at all. Seems totally alright, though I do not understand the choice of commander when looking at the list. I see close to no sacrifices in the deck (Yahenni, merciless resolve and Kalitas). Also many of the cards are straight up bad... And with better counterparts at a low pricepoint. Instead of Merciless Resolve you could run Costly Plunder. Bone Splinters seems good, you have very few artifacts or artifact creatures considering how many delirium cards you run. I don't get why you don't run Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Desert of the Indomitable etc for the same purpose: turn on delirium. How do you plan on finding value with Stoic Builder?

In case you didn't want to build anything good (which i totally respect), just ignore me ;)

Seriously though: Hand of Death?

I'm not sure this is feasable. Doom Blade, for example, is better than Hand of Death, Cradle to Grave, Dark Banishing, Terror, etc.

Why Path to Exile When you can have Swords to Plowshares? Why Solidarity when you can have Tower Defense? Why Doom Blade when you can have Hand of Death? (Just kidding about that one, Go for the Throat would be the pick there, with Doom Blade in the Sideboard :D)
