Ponder and Gitaxian Probe are currently banned in the modern format.

Also have you considered Illness in the Ranks or maybe even Panharmonicon ? :)

ClockworkSwordfish I actually had 2 main board copies of hunted troll in a previous version of this deck, I felt that it was sub par compared to the power of hunted phantasm. Hunted Troll is 1 more mana, produces 1 less token, and while it is an 8/4 it doesn't have trample, so if we aren't killing the tokens we're giving our opponent with Illness in the Ranks the hunted troll will be chump blocked until we win with etb effects like suture priest and trespassers curse anyway.

I don't think Ethereal Absolution is good at all... It's an expensive Glorious Anthem + Illness in the Ranks , because no one really cares about that activated ability... ESPECIALLY not in a walker deck that has cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion that can put 3 dudes out quickly.

I like Flaying Tendrils more than Illness in the Ranks, more versatility. Would you consider adding Field of Ruin/Ghost Quarter, or maybe 2x Surgical Extraction in sideboard?

I like to think Golgari would be an interesting color combination for 8 rack, mostly because of the long list of versatile removal in those colors.

mattc1uk Illness in the Ranks and Virulent Plague do not target the creature.

I'm confused by the logic of trading Hunted Phantasm for Rakdos Charm. Phantasm is by far the most powerful card in the deck, and the only reason to play it, because it deals 5/brother plus 4 each turn unblockably. Compared to Horror, who deals 2/brother + 1 each turn at most if they double block, Phantasm seems juuust a bit better. I certainly would love to add red, because Lightning Bolt is the best possible removal spell for an aggressive deck, but it feels like this deck is already losing too much life. Cutting white is another option, but then we lose Suture Priest and Ghostly Prison making us even slower and more fragile. Maybe adding red is the only option.

Trying to kill the tokens you're giving them one-by-one with Porphyry Nodes sounds extremely underpowered. Illness in the Ranks would be better. Though I think Ghostly Prison is best because it's actually already a good card.

Ok, so here's my dilemma:

I started to build my FCIzoni deck, but I found myself putting in a lot of the same cards in it that I had in #4000 Tokens :). So, I could use some opinions here, should I just combine the two decks?

As I thought about it, Illness in the Ranks would just let me win with Izoni, Thousand-Eyed as long as I have a Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat/Poison-Tip Archer in play. Thoughts? Do I just drop the FC plan entirely?

Thanks for any and all input!
