Valid points - "the other downsides won't kill you - Eater of Days will" is probably the major reason not to play it.I'm gonna keep throwing ideas at you in UBw irregardless of that, maybe something looks good

Hallowed Moonlight - while not great will stop your opponents from getting creatures from your spells including your undying Treacherous Pit-Dweller should you need toVirulent Plague kills your Hunted Phantasm's tokens and drops 4 p/t off of your Hunted Horrors tokensRatchet Bomb straight up kills the tokens

@enpcI used to play Mercy Killing but it is not very good removal even with Illness in the Ranks.

@the.beanpoleEchoing Truth is good but illness costs less and is permanent.

@HydraxI like beck. I'm worried that it costs too many mana when paired with Hunted Phantasm or Hunted Troll and also that if they counter the troll/phantasm then they get a 1-for-2. I am going to playtest it and see how it fits in. With regard to Curse of the Swine and Swan Song: curse was in the initial deck but it is weak removal even without the tokens (and the tokens are often a pain) and Swan Song used to be a three of on the sideboard but modern sideboarding is very robotic and it doesn't fit well on the mainboard because, unless there are two Illness in the Ranks on the 'field, then the token will be annoying to remove (it would require a full spell to itself).

Thanks for your suggestions and +1s everyone. I am adding Swan Song to the maybeboard because it just fits so well with the theme.

I playtested this and it's honestly a lot of fun, you've done a great job here!

Main deck looks really solid, can't really find much wrong with it.

If there's any suggestion I could make, it would probably be Beck.

The Beck part of it is pretty cheap to cast, you can take advantage of Hunted Phantasm and Hunted Troll and draw yourself a bunch of cards.

The Call part is probably less relevant because it's a bit expensive but hey, if you got the mana why not?

I'm not sure what you would take out though, like I said the main deck looks solid.

Some other cards I came across were Curse of the Swine and Swan Song but I suppose those aren't very good because they make 2/2 tokens instead of 1/1.

Good luck with this deck though, it's pretty awesome

I love this deck. I want this deck. This deck dies to Blood Moon like few other modern decks I've seen. Red is the one colour this deck doesn't want, and that is literally all you would have access to if you couldn't tap your mana before it resolved, and use it to cast a Maelstrom Pulse right away. Any reason you're not running any basics at all? Surely having two islands, one plains, three swamps, and two forests wouldn't cause that much trouble to the mana base, would it? Besides, it would hurt less.

Those specific numbers are referring to the coloured mana costs of Massacre Wurm, Hunted Phantasm, Path to Exile, and Hunted Troll.

I'd say Hunted Phantasm is a bigger threat than the troll. Troll can easily be chump blocked by the 4 tokens you just gave them and any others they might have around. Unblockable 4 damage each turn for 3 mana though? That's much scarier.

Other cards to maybe think about: Topplegeist, Dismember, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Mutavault, Minamo, School at Water's Edge.

Hunted Phantasm can be fun in some situations. And even though it's not a spirit, Judge's Familiar is sometimes useful; some Legacy decks use it alongside Mausoleum Wanderer.

Phantasmal Image also works well with Drogskol Captain, since the Image will have hexproof.

Tectonic Edge is a good sideboard card if you end up against Tron decks.

There is a little stack of cards in this deck that I would most certainly cut;

First, the creature-takeover cards. They seem pretty good, but you must make sure to focus on one thing. So Ray of Command, Act of Treason and others.

Second, the other cards that take over your opponent's cards:Confiscate, Charisma, Annex.

Also I'm not a fan of the Equipments and any of the creature-based cards in this deck, as the Izzet guild's strongest point is spells.So cut Teleportal, Assault Strobe, Psychotic Fury, Fury Charm, Curiosity, Pemmin's Aura, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon's Head, Neko-Te, Lightning Greaves...

Also, these cards I don't think fit the deck very well.-Dark Depths.

-Riftwing Cloudskate

-Peregrine Drake and Cloud of Faeries

-Hunted Dragon and Hunted Phantasm

-Grafdigger's Cage!!! You should NOT play this card. It blocks out Melek and isn't of much use.

-Tormod's Crypt

-Staff of Domination

-Sun Droplet

-Claws of Gix

-Copy Enchantment

-Whelming Wave

-Acquire and Fabricate

-Hurkyl's Recall

The rest of the cutting you'll have to do in the burn package. Hope I helped, please check out my thopter deck:THOPTERS!!!!! .

Ixidron on Cards like Phyrexian Dreadnought

I've made a deck based on that idea some time ago. Feel free to check:

The idea is to use cards like: Trickbind, Sundial of the Infinite, Torpor Orb, Disallow, Voidslime and Hushwing Gryff to counter the EtB triggers and cast your massive creatures. There is also the option to use Fling and Rite of Consumption for cards that have upkeep triggers.

This type of strategy evolved from the legacy Phyrexian Dreadnought+Stifle, also known as stiflenought.

Currently this is the list of cheap big creatures with big drawbacks for modern:

Vexing Devil, Boldwyr Heavyweights, Cosmic Larva, Desecration Demon, Desecration Elemental, Dust Elemental, Eater of Days, Leveler, Hunted Phantasm, Hunted Horror, Hunted Troll, Hunted Wumpus, Hunted Dragon, Hunted Lammasu, Inverter of Truth, Nova Chaser, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Primeval Force, Sky Swallower.
