Kor Firewalker Discussion
1 week ago
I personally think Fatal Push over Go for the Throat, and Leyline of Sanctity over Aegis of the Gods. Kor Firewalker is a neat card against burn too, for the sideboard. Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are also good sideboard/mainboard cards for control matchups too.
Love the deck!

I would concur with the others about your sideboard. Soulfire Grand Master really isn't what you want against aggro or in the mirror. Kor Firewalkers backed up by Path to Exile to deal with your opponents' Kor Firewalkers is where you want to go. You also want Path to Exile so you don't just scoop to a Wurmcoil Engine on turn 3 from a Tron player.
I'd probably change your sideboard to look something like:
If you are wanting to build up a Tribal Flames list, you play black for Bump in the Night and blue for Geist of Saint Traft. I play Tribal Zoo myself with Siege Rhino, Noble Hierarch, Tarmogoyf, and Wild Nacatl. I'll post my deck here if you want or you can find it in my profile.

No Rites of Flourishing? Blasphemy.. lol j/k
My honest opinions is that you are weakening yourself by double splashing here. I would chop both red and green and just go UW, which should help with consistency and make your manabase massively better.
Pollen Lullaby - Fog-effect that may last 2 turns, and Isochron-able
Rule of Law - helps cut out storm decks and the like, while not really impacting you
Kor Firewalker / Dragon's Claw - sideboard for Red - only go with the artifact if you want to stay purely 0 creatures
Torpor Orb - good sideboard fodder
Sands of Delirium - win-con that gives you something to do with your extra mana each turn cycle

How did your event go with this deck? I know I'm a little late commenting from your post in the Modern forum a few days ago, but the only change I could see you making with this deck is swapping out the 2 Kor Firewalkers and shaving a Sudden Shock for 3x Leyline of Sanctity to protect against both burn and discard instead of just burn. Death's Shadow running all the discard really hurts a deck like this that has only a few ways to draw cards.

Sure, looks good enough for casual play. I've never liked Staff of the Sun Magus/Staff of the Death Magus- it just feels like there is cheaper stuff that works out blocking more incoming damage- Nyx-Fleece Ram, Sanctimony or Kor Firewalker for example. One thing to think about is how effective 1-off effects are. I despise Chaplain's Blessing type cards (although that is probably the best of them) because they 'spend' a card without providing an ongoing advantage. Against something spending cards for direct damage, trades for 1-and a half Lightning Bolt which is fine. Against something spending cards for ongoing damage, less fantastic.
I have this list for modern viable mono black stuff Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox- there will be some stuff that works well in there. Exquisite bond is fantastic as a combo finish- Its a little too high mana cost for my preferred setups, and a one-of Blood Baron of Vizkopa fills the role well enough, but if you want to all-in with it Vizkopa Guildmage is functionally an extra body and combo-piece. Timely Reinforcements nets creatures and life super efficiently when behind.
If you're feeling competitive List of Modern Sideboard Staples is super useful for finding those 'fix this problem cards'. You're allready pretty close to the 'soul sisters' archetype, so you could mine recent versions of that deck for cards, although it has lost popularity recently.
All of this said, if you're going to be playing the same deck a lot, try for variety- either have an extra stack of cards you swap in when bored or run a lot of 1-ofs. It helps keep things interesting.

Hey bro, cool idea! I've played tonnes of delver in both modern and legacy (tempo is my favorite archetype). At the moment I'm testing out sultai in modern for the same reasons you are testing this - bolt is in a bad place :(
A couple of small suggestions:- test remands over mana leaks here... I think you won't be disappointed. The card is busted in a tempo shell. Also, you play path to exile so leak becomes dead much faster than in other delver lists whereas remand at worst always cycles.- I would cut 1 tasigur for a geist. he is really good in modern right now, many decks just lose to this card especially backed up with cheap creature removal (which your deck has in spades). No bolts means you wouldn't want more than a single copy I think but the card really is good at the moment. Cut tasigur because even though he is a sweet threat, he is actually less valuable in a delver shell than in say a midrange/control shell - you often don't have enough lands to activate him therefore losing out on that sweet sweet CA.
Other than that I really like your numbers. 12 is a pretty nice number for creatures in modern delver as you don't have good top-of-library manipulation i.e. brainstorm. Lingering souls is a fantastic threat that also flips delver which is great, but 3cmc is rough. I like that you don't have a full playset here, although it does work well with thought scour :)
If you are interested here is my current list I'm testing for sultai - points of note include no thought scour, instead running think twice for some sweet sweet CA

The usual suspects Path to Exile, Kor Firewalker and Condemn are always good on the SB, but within the theme of the deck i would run Enlightened Ascetic or Felidar Cub for the enchantment hate, Leonin Arbiter because he is just a mean kitty and Whitemane Lion to possibly get some value against removal heavy decks.
