Phyrexian Obliterator Discussion

DarDar17 on Blue/Black zombies

I like the deck, but I don't think Phyrexian Obliterator works in it. The 4 black mana mana cost makes it very hard to cast in a two colored deck, especially with 9 islands in the deck. Liliana's Mastery and Liliana, the Last Hope are both very strong in zombie decks, maybe you could replace the obliterator with one if them.

Lord_Khaine on My Devotion Will Blot Out the Sun

Black devotion was my first real deck, so I always approve of it.

Phyrexian Obliterator is always worth having around. So is Vampire Nighthawk, Geralf's Messenger, and if you want to bleed your wallet, Liliana of the Veil. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is a budget alternative, and in black devotion has the advantage of giving you a recurring board state. If possible, I recommend getting cards such as Fatal Push and Inquisition of Kozilek, for the sideboard if not the mainboard, for earlier interaction against faster decks.

That's all I can think of for now, glad you're making use of Vampire Nighthawk's little sibling, Gifted Aetherborn.

Firstly I like the deck build in that even with meren off the field you have serious threat. +1 Upvote

Here are a few things I would recommend for the deck.

Lands --
Dryad Arbor - Meren loves the creature to abuse. Drop a forest for it. Works well with Crucible of Worlds and its creature counterpart.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - You have plenty of and permanents to get positive on devotion.

Westvale Abbey  Flip - Here's a land, wait it's a demon.Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Seriously? Drop a swamp for this.

Creatures --

Thoughtpicker Witch - She can shut out an opponent for a while, also an immediate target for exiles and a 1 cmc that can sack itself.

Mindslicer - This is fun against blue.

Ramunap Excavator - Another Crucible of Worlds.

Creakwood Liege - Buff your creatures and get your tokens.

Phyrexian Obliterator - Effectively requires removal for decks that win with combat, otherwise it gets nasty.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury - This new guy allows you to remove parts of their deck for use against them. Nifty.

Deathcap Cultivator - Self explanatory.

Enchantments and Artifacts --
Contamination - You can effectively win on the spot against decks without black.

Deadbridge Chant - Gets a lot of things into graveyard and brings stuff back.

Phyrexian Altar - A sack outlet for .

Instants and Sorceries --

Tooth and Nail - It can help immensely with finding an answer or wincon.

Jarad's Orders - An easy creature to grave, plus one to hand.

Thank you for feedback. I have been playing modern for some time, so I know how fast it can be... The thing is here to keep the cost down. I've got a Phyrexian Obliterator thats why its in there. Noxious Gearhulk is just in because I want to get help in that kind of direction (removals). If that makes any sense... =)) Gifted Aetherborn is a great suggestion, Doom Blade and Disfigure as well. The coolest is Bone Splinters tho... cuz it activates Bitterheart WitchYou might be right on going with 2 Cruel Reality.

In reanimator, Griselbrand will usually be more useful than Phyrexian Obliterator. Entomb is also useful for running toolkit creatures as necessary.
