Oblivion Strike Discussion

Ok then, I have seen your card pool and I've seen lots of interesting cards.
As said before: Oblivion Strike, it's a too slow removal and you have tons of other things that exile, making it useless. Probably I'd change it with Dismember, Hero's Downfall or Go for the Throat; they do what you want them to do (destroy an opponent's creature) and they are faster and cheaper than the strike.
Other cards I would take in consideration:
Drift of Phantasms cause of it's ability that tutors Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Dismember, Titan's Presence and other good 3 cmc cost cards (the problem is that in 1x I really don't know if it's woth).
Lifecrafter's Bestiary let's you scry 1 every turn and, since you have tons of creatures, if you have mana to spend it also makes you draw a card (the problem is that this in 1x isn't worth, it should be put in 2/3x, that means you have 3 creatures less. Maybe do some tests with it and without).
Things I would consider as sideboard are:
Bontu's Last Reckoning (what if you are playing against an aggro and very fast deck?).
Prowling Serpopard (what if you are playing against a control deck?).
Ratchet Bomb (if opponent has enchantments or artifacts you don't know how to whipe out).
Now, what I DON'T like of your deck:
Fathom Feeder, 2 specific mana to cast an easily destroyable creature. And it's ability costs really too much.
Oblivion Strike, I've already expressed my opinion on it.
Benthic Infiltrator, at first sight it seems good, due to it's "unblockable" effect, but is it really worth? it's a 1/4 (and so sometimes you would prefer to leave it as a blocker instead of attacking, thing that it's supposed to do), it costs 3 mana, so it will attack for the first time, we hope, on turn 4, doing just 1 damage to the opponent. You have better options than this.

Knowing what cards you have would be really helpfull, so, if you can post the link it would be great!
Back to the deck: Far Wanderings it's not modern legal, unfortunately.
For the rest of what I would change in your deck (for example Oblivion Strike, it's a too slow removal and you have tons of things that exile, making it useless), I'd wait, cause (as said above), knowing what cards you have would be really helpfull when trying to make suuggestions.

I completely overlooked spot removal and yes I would personally up the number of spot removal I'd play. Here's a short list of spot removal I'd consider for kresh:
Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Ultimate Price, Innocent Blood, Vendetta, Slaughter Pact, Chaos Warp, Dismember, Ashes to Ashes, Snuff Out, Terminate, Putrefy, Devour Flesh, Diabolic Edict, and Oblivion Strike ( I suggest this only if your avacyn player plays Iona, Shield of Emeria.). Hopefully some of these will prove to be helpful

bwanabeast5 i never said you were lying "because its the internet". the fact you're trying to give some "other" reason why I think you're lying, just proves you're lying even more. because it means you're trying to distract from the ACTUAL reason i think you're lying, which i've already stated. don't try to act like the reason i think you're lying is because "its the internet", when really its just the fact that, again, nobody who has played modern would have given the advice you did. have you EVER seen ANYBODY use Oblivion Strike as an actual answer to Emrakul, the Aeons Torn? the answer is of course no. right now, you're the one making a big deal out of it and getting all flustered.

bwanabeast5: yeah i know you're not trying to "make his deck". never said you were. but see heres the thing, nobody who has ever actually played modern would make the suggestions you did. thats just not a thing that would happen. nobody suggests Hero's Downfall before they suggest Fatal Push, Go for the Throat, or Smother, or suggests Oblivion Strike as an answer to Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. theres really no need to lie about which tournaments you've been to. you're allowed to tell the truth and say you've never played modern before.

bwanabeast5: have you ever played modern before? your last comment really makes me think you havent. for one thing, theres a pretty good amount of mono black creature removal spells that are better than Hero's Downfall. secondly, Oblivion Strike is a sorcery, and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is pretty much only put into play with haste. and thats if we ignore the fact that Oblivion Strike is basically just a terrible card in almost every scenario. 4 mana for sorcery speed removal will never make its way into any serious modern deck.

I'm not saying the deck is bad, I'm just trying to imply that if you want to control the board I would run more things like Hero's Downfall or Oblivion Strike if Emrakul, the Aeons Torn came into play. I'm just throwing out different scenario's because these are a lot of the things I run in to.

Great deck, and I can feel my tabletop group using Oblivion Strike on me.
