cplvela0811 Thanks for the suggestion! I was looking for some type of creature/planeswalker removal and I couldn't think of anything on the top of my head. I'm definitly using Hero's Downfall but as stated in the description I'm only splashing red so Dreadbore will not be included.

Hi. That's a lot of friends!

This is an interesting idea. I do have a few questions/suggestions, if that would be fine with you? My first is why Ruinous Path over Dreadbore (both being sorcery speed). Hero's Downfall is at instant speed too.

You'll need to up the land count to at least 37, ideally 38 and add in something like Grixis Obelisk. The mill effects in the deck are pointless and unnecessary, since you're not a dedicated mill deck. There are a lot of "Target player" spells here, isn't ideal in a group environment. I think you may also want one or two more pieces of targeted removal, so that you can effectively handle threats. Hero's Downfall comes to mind, since you can hit Walkers with it.

Quicksilver, Yeah I agree with Hero's Downfall but how does Eidolon of Blossoms work here?

Hero's Downfall > Murder. Eidolon of Blossoms works well for both card draw and as a sac outlet.

Hero's Downfall in place of Murder, it is just a tad bit more pricey though.

Great deck! Here are my recommendations Desecration Demon, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Nightveil Spectre? (<- sux against lightning bolt). I would not play 3 Lili's and 2 Phyrexian Arena. That seems like overkill. Maximum I would play 4 Lili's and that's it. 2 Fulminator Mage mainboard is OK if you like them. 1 Grave Titan would be OK. You really want to play 4 Blood Crypt and 4 Blackcleave Cliffs. Vampire Nighthawk is AMAZING if you are not up against Lightning Bolt. Phyrexian Obliterator<- on of the best black creatures ever printed. For card draw you want 4 Dark Confidant

Removal: Victim of Night, Hero's Downfall, Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Ultimate Price. Disfigure, Damnation

Whip of Erebos is good for grindy matchups

Lifebane Zombie for the sideboard

I modern I would take out 1 Chandra, Flamecaller, 4 Demigod of Revenge, 2 Phyrexian Arena

Feast of Blood is god awful. So is Dark Impostor. Neither of the Guul Draz twins are all that great. Bloodline Keeper is too slow.

My recommendations:

Try out Viscera Seer, Kalastria Highborn, Blood Artist and Bloodghast together. Consider Vampire Lacerator.

for non-creature spells, good options are Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Tragic Slip, Go for the Throat, Hero's Downfall, Dismember, Phyrexian Arena and Liliana of the Veil.
