Mortician Beetle Discussion

Thanks for this, I have been inspired!! (Hint: Mortician Beetle)

Raise the Alarm was actually a mistake on my part - I thought it made Human tokens, not Soldier tokens. Gather the Townsfolk is sorcery speed, which kinda sucks, but it does synergize better with the rest of the deck... but on second thought, maybe you're better off not playing either of them. Just focus on replacing your current sacrifice outlets and testing with Young Wolf to see how well it fits your needs.
Oh, and one last thing: get rid of Village Cannibals. A 2/2 that hits the board on turn 3 is too slow for Modern - if you want a creature that gets bigger as you sacrifice stuff, Mortician Beetle is your best bet.

I'm liking the overall theme here, but question. Wouldn't Prossh, Skyraider of Kher be a better commander here? The extra tokens definitely generate some extra value for him to kill with commander damage, not to mention he creates token to help you with your devour theme.
Also, some devour creatures I think you should consider:
Thorn-Thrash Viashino - The fact that he can give himself trample makes him EXTREMELY relevant
Marrow Chomper - can help keep you in the game. Having a crap ton of creatures, but only one life, doesn't give you much of a benefit.
Thromok the Insatiable - If you are going with a devour theme, he is a must. This guy can gain INCREDIBLE power with the token theme you have.
Token Generators I think you should consider.
Krenko, Mob Boss - Can win the game by himself, but for token generation this guy is insane.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - He only hits opponents, but he also helps HOSE graveyard strategies. Not to mention, can beef himself up if need be.
Grave Titan - I think this guy is pretty powerful by himself, but then he can also start generating some major advantage.
Hooded Hydra - possibility since you can easily sacrifice him.
Benefits from Sacrificing
Fecundity - It can help opponents, but I feel like you'll get more use out of it
Viscera Seer - Not a bad way to make sure you don't draw something useless
Mortician Beetle - Simple yet extremely effective in a deck like this
Asceticism - Dude, just yes. This card is insanely amazing.
Parallel Lives - Redundancy again, but does stack with the others.
This is everything that came to mind at first, hope you find somethings to help your deck!

you just don't want to hang non-dynamic cards on a combo. Soul sisters are decent because even without the combo, they'll keep you in the game. There are other spells, though, like Mortician Beetle that really aren't very good without the combo.

Ahzrei I really like the theme of the deck you have here, but right now I see a few issues.
First of all, you have 62 cards in the deck right now.. Assuming you want to be running a 60 card deck, that should be fixed.
Arc Runner is a nice card, but think of this.. If your plan is to hard cast him, and then play Rite of Consumption before end of turn.. this is a combo that'll have to wait until turn 5 at the soonest. Not to mention that he is easily chump blocked once your opponent has the slightest idea of what you're up to (since he doesn't even have trample).
Here is what I would do:
-4 Arc Runner (Too mana intensive to allow for shenanigans)
-4 Demigod of Revenge (Not sure he fits the theme like you may think. Official ruling of the card states: "This ability triggers when you cast Demigod of Revenge as a spell. It wont trigger if Demigod of Revenge is put directly onto the battlefield.")
+4 Demonlord of Ashmouth (This is your win con. He also allows you to sac him once at no cost = profit.)
-4 Apprentice Necromancer (Soonest he is useful is turn 3, after some thought on this one, I am thinking this:)
+4 Undying Evil (...fits the theme a little better than the Necro, & useful in more situations.)
-2 Sneak Attack (With the new lowered mana curve here, I don't see as much need for this card in the deck.)
(You should also look at fixing your mana base. Even without making changes to the deck, you should be more swamp-heavy than mountain-heavy.)

Mortician Beetle can be silly in decks like this one...
