First off I'd suggest Magus of the Bazaar over Merfolk Looter. Other cards that might help are Haunted Dead and Phantasmagorian. Given your colour choice, you might be able to use Shadowstorm Vizier, in the same way the more traditional RB deck uses Flameblade Adept. I play a Hollow One deck myself HollowFlayer, though I'm also trying to leverage Soulflayer

I'd toss in Phantasmagorian so if you Hermit Druid combo, and have a piece stuck in hand, you can still go off.

Sarkhan420,

  1. You are correct, you did not use the dies to doomblade argument. You said "something with no haste that can be killed with Path to Exile or Terminate" - so my apologies, you did not use doomblade.

  2. Yes, indeed. 0 mana does not mean no cost, despite what you think. 2 Hollow One on t1 for zero mana does imply the card is free, except you have to get lucky to do it.

  3. Saying I should play more modern and that Bridge is a bad card, while ignoring what BridgeVine has done to the metagame in the last month is not a good idea.

  4. Phantasmagorian was mentioned because it is a part of the Legacy deck Oops, all spells, which I mentioned. Unfortunately, in conjuction to Phantasmagorian (which is also played in certain legacy dredge variants), the deck has to play Dread Return, but that is impossible in modern. I mentioned that because Demon At Death's Gate is the closest thing to Dread Return that is legal in Modern.

Back to the OG topic, I would agree, demons and eldrazi do not have much to do with each other. There are some that could be useful - Soulflayer could get a nice array of abilities, Shadowborn Demon will take out something and be huge, all at the cost of some eldrazi tokens, while Desecration Demon is the purest form of aggro demon. But I cannot find a single demon that really plays well with the eldrazi.

Boza: i absolutely did not use the "dies to doomblade" argument. and your comment of "a 9/9 flying trample for 0 mana seems too good to be true" is a pure straw man, and ignorant at best. saying "0 mana" implies no cost, but 3 black creatures and 6 life is certainly a cost. there is zero respect to be had for Bridge from Below. its a bad card, plain and simple. you gotta get it into your grave, get creatures out, wait for them to die, all while not being allowed to kill of your opponents threats for fear of losing your combo piece. thats just horrible. not sure what your point is in mentioning Phantasmagorian. you draw literally zero connection between the card and the current conversation, and it should be obvious why the card sees zero play. maybe you should actually play some modern before speaking about it.

Sarkhan420 - the way to "cheat out" that demon is on the card itself. A 9/9 flying trample for 0 mana seems too good to be true. Also, you have to respect the synergy with Bridge from Below - modern has just a few free sac outlets and you have to try them out when possible. The cost of it is not insurmountable and 3 black creatures (ignoring the life cost, since life is a resource anyways). It is the card that can enable a "Oops, all spells deck" in modern. Heck, you have Phantasmagorian is a legal modern card that sees 0 play.

It is one of those "almost there" creatures. I really have to revisit my DDG deck.

TLDR: Do not use the "dies to Doomblade" argument.

I would rather Boreal Druid, Arbor Elf, and Fyndhorn Elves before that, since that are Dread Return fodder. It is up to you what you do as discard outlets, I like Phantasmagorian/Cabal Therapy as my package, but the arguement is abundantly clear that Cephalid Inkshrouder is great protection outside of just being a discard outlet. Up to you, if low mana, instant speed removal (Swords to Plowshares, Dismember, Rapid Hybridization, Chain of Vapor, etc.) is very common, keep it how it is, if not, I like the others more.

+1 love the list, I built a very similar one!

Piece of advice, run Talisman of Dominance/Fellwar Stone over the signets, they give a slight bit more value generally, also, good on you for running the Mogis's Marauders Hulk pile, and the Nooze pile! Cabal Therapy/Phantasmagorian should be run so you can discard Dread Return, Necrotic Ooze, or other combo-cards so you aren't so reliant on Cephalid Inkshrouder.

Phantasmagorian can be used to discard Necrotic Ooze, and the cmc never has mattered as we aren't casting them and we don't run Ad Nauseam. so no Cephalid Inkshrouder

The main reason for Deep Analysis over Flash of Insight is Laboratory Maniac. Is some of my combo for Nooze is exiled or otherwise inaccessible due to gameplay, I can Dread Return the Laboratory Maniac and flashback Deep Analysis.

Boreal Druid is a card I honestly would run 4 of if I could. Yes a lot of my cards don't need a ton of colorless, but a lot do. Flash, Food Chain, Timetwister, etc.

I actually had Noxious Revival and Diabolic Intent in the list to start with, along with cards like Windfall, some of the signets, etc. But a lot of them were dropped for more removal. Timetwister/Memory's Journey lines are the best for repeatedly recycling my library, to use Beast Within + Reality Shift to exile my opponents libraries. Winds of Rebuke isn't needed for this.

Entomb, Necromancy, Reanimate, Life // Death and the like were a package I couldn't run with my Food Chain package, Flash/Protean Hulk package, Laboratory Maniac package, Counterspell Package, Card Draw Package, Tutor Package, Removal Package, and Ramp Package. I just didn't have the space.

Ad Nauseam is a card that is too expensive opening hand, and doesn't instantly win me the game like Hermit Druid can, so I would rarely tutor it. It is a great card for storm, but not exactly for many other lists.

Survival of the Fittest/Apprentice Necromancer can be a great boon for many decks that need to reanimate a Protean Hulk, however I am a Food Chain deck at first, and a Hermit Druid list second. Flash/Protean Hulk is probably beneath Laboratory Maniac in terms of how much I want to focus on it. I would most definently recommend it to a Flash/Protean Hulk list wanting a single-card win-con (as long as you have a creature card in hand). I may eventually run it, but for right now I do in fact have a reason for not doing it.
