Oblivion Strike Discussion

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.

Thanks! glad you like it. I only actually have one copy of Anger of the Gods, but I've been thinking about removing both Oblivion Strikes to put it back in. That way I have one of those as well as a Mizzium Mortars, which is almost a better version of Anger. The second oblivion strike will be removed for an Eldrazi Monument, which keeps my Butcher of Malakir and Thraximundar on the field, and forces me to sacrifice either a zombie or a harpy every turn.

Wow thanks! I took your advice pretty seriously for this.
A quick note: A feature I wanted to pull off with this is to use Rakdos' ability to get bigger creatures out more cheaply, so I've added my other copy. The other feature is to get tokens for Unbreathing horde and to sacrifice them for Thraximundar and Butcher of Malakir. Now I need to modify it and find ways to actually sacrifice them, apart from Champion of Stray Souls.
I've done the following:
Removed Heart-Piercer Manticore for another Visage of Bolas. I was going to go with Manalith, but since mana ramp isn't much of a feature here, I went with another Visage because it does the same thing and lets me search for Bolas.
I haven't looked at the land yet. Just thought I'd share my thoughts. Thanks again for the help!
