htfilm on Devotion Obliterator

I really like this deck, and have been looking for some sort of monoblack devotion deck in modern for a long time. I think most of the card choices are fine, but I would recommend 2 more Phyrexian Obliterator, and possibly swapping out one Fatal Push for another Dismember. I might also go all-in on the zombie theme to take advantage of all the zombie support you have. Overall, great deck, and I love it!

Saw the reddit thread, but since I don't actually have a reddit account I figured I'd comment here since Liliana is one of my favorite commanders. Cards you're not running that I'd highly recommend are Soldevi Adnate, Anvil of Bogardan, & Ill-Gotten Gains.

As for cuts I would try to pick on a strategy and streamline it. I'd start with lower impact cards like Sangromancer which does nothing but gain life which you don't really care about, or Liliana's Reaver which is overall pretty mediocre. You can either go the route of cutting the "goodstuff" cards like Phyrexian Obliterator or Sorin Markov, or you can cut down on either the discard, reanimation, or zombie themes. I personally play Liliana with a focus on the discard aspect, a secondary focus on Reanimation, & 0 focus on zombies.

I'm looking for a Japanese Phyrexian Obliterator to complete my set. I have an English one, so I'm looking for someone interested in doing a 1:1 trade. I may be able to throw some odds and ends in, depending on what you're looking for. Thanks in advance

Phyrexian Obliterator. It's very costly, but if you want to improve in the future... That's a good way ;)

It looks pretty good as is. I think you're just missing some Phyrexian Obliterator.

12 pieces of removal is solid enough but people usually only run Gatekeeper when they don't have Lilly since they have the same ETB effect but the lasting effects of a t3 Lilly is much more critical to deal with than a 2/2. That being said, I wouldn't go any lower on bodies.

Have you had a chance to test play yet?

Dig for aggression. Don't let the board sit peacefully. In this instance, you have become the archenemy, and so you must act accordingly. They are threatening you by not threatening each other. This is not an infrequent board state.

I am not sure what the mulligan rule that we use is called. We frequntly have kids playing with us, mine and/or others. We have a sort of gentleman's agreement that if kids are there, the first mulligan is free, every one after costs a card (redraw 7, then 6, then 5, ...). If no kids are there, every mulligan costs a card (redraw 6, then 5, ...).

Phyrexian Obliterator is super mana intensive. It would make an interesting blocker and rattlesnake, but looking down at that may be too scary, and I would bet it gets wiped out quickly. I usually want cards that make people think, "Hmmm, if I just don't mess with it, it will probably be fine." This sorta screams, "I'm about to wreck you." I would be interested in hearing your take on it if you have actual play experience. I can't justify a $30 card that I can't see forwarding the core mission.

All right, that makes sense. Few more things:

What mulligan rules do you usually play with?

Have you ever considered Phyrexian Obliterator? Seems to fit the theme, while being a decent beater as well. Or is it on the level of the mentioned "bombs"?

In most of my games, even after establishing a decent pillow/rattlesnake-fort, other players simply don't want to attack each other. They wait to get answers against my boardstate and target me primarily. A good example would be a board, where I only have Solitary Confinement, Marchesa with the Monarch, and a soft pillow, say Duelist's Heritage, out. So, I don't overextend. What do you do in such situations?
