Phyrexian Obliterator Discussion

So first, Welcome to modern buddy :D
So I don't know what your budget is, but I since you have fetch lands and other pricey stuff, it isn't to cheap. If it is though let me know I will get you some cheaper stuff.
So first think i notice is glimmer, there are so so so many better draw spells in modern, for instance, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Serum Visions, Deep Analysis and many others. Those I could just name off the top of my head.
Next up is your grasp of darkness, While I am a huge fan of this card back when ogw was legal in standard, there are certain kill spells that work better. Dismember is better in that if you need it in a 1 mana pinch, 4 life and 1 mana. If you wanted more boardwipe kinda stuff, i find Mutilate rather good. Then there is always the good old Damnation and single targets like Go for the Throat and Cast Down
I would also do Gatekeeper of Malakir for your chupacabra. While you cant target it, you will find in modern lower cmc is probably better. Also, it will get around your hexproof and indestructible creatures.
And I would strongly recommend to dump your scarab gods. I know coming out of standard you probably think he is the best thing since Ancestral Recall. But it is way way to slow for modern. If you want high mana cmc threat, Phyrexian Obliterator will keep your opponent on his toes without proper answers. Desecration Demon is gonna hit hard either on their board or their life total. Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Since you have a good amount of devotion, this will probably hit for 5-6 every time you cast him. and it only becomes more dangerous as the game progresses when you flood the board with creatures. And although it is really high mana and you probably wont cast it effectively, Sheoldred, Whispering One is practically game ending if you use her right. Although good luck casting a 7 cmc creature without tron lands
While I could give you 100 suggestions of cards, it all relies on you and what you decide. Modern is a very diverse format and has plenty of cards in it to suit anyones needs and wants towards the perfect deck they want. So all i can really say is just experiment with cards. Use different versions, test new themes, all the good stuff. Just remember to always have fun :3

GrubbernautThank you for your insight.
I saw some potential in Supernatural Stamina as a one mana "counter" for all the "destroy" removal in combination with the ability of Phyrexian Obliterator. I think i could replace it with Spell Snare. Cryptic Command however, I will include eventually. Same goes for fetchlands and maybe the new lands of Guilds of Ravnica. My issue here is my budget. I'm building this deck step by step.
I can't see the full potential of a Planeswalker in my deck yet. Therefore I don't include Planeswalkers any time soon. Time will tell.
Thanks again for all your tipps! Cheers

The deck is definitely trying to get devotion, and I like th synergy with Arena and Phyrexian Obliterator, nut I think you're missing a lot of the things you need. For starters, you should probably be playing cards like Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, and Fatal Push.
Secondly, you need way more lands. I understand Nykthos can do wonders, but you're playing 19 mana sources in a deck where half of it costs more than 4 mana.
To add some context, I played 19 lands in a deck that had an average mana cost of 1.5.
To summarize, more lands, less expensive clunky cards, and streamline your interaction. Hope some of this helps.

@n0bunga Phyrexian Obliterator is the only card in my deck that doesn't have a buff benefit, figured it was strong on it's own. Funny, I was looking for just a card like Arena when I started building this deck, but go completely sidetracked. Might just build another deck with it in mind now!

So first a few things. I know that common consensus is that Inquisition of Kozilek is better than Thoughtseize but that thinking is out dated in the current meta which has a lot more focus on Combo and bigger threats that dodge Fatal Push and Abrupt Decay. I'd advise a 3/3 split but a 4 Seize/2-3 Iok split is also valid. 7 seems to be the sweet spot for discard spells anyway. Next 23-24 lands is what this deck wants. Ideally 24 but dependent on options 23 is acceptable, especially with a full Bob (Dark Confidant) play set. I'd strongly recommend Treetop Village over Hissing Quagmire with 3-4 Twilight Mire to balance mana out. Being dual color, you can afford a few colorless slots. Rock decks of yesteryear used to run 4x Tectonic Edge. I would say you could fit in 2-3 Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin, whatever is your preference but I wouldn't go without either. You should also cut Lotleth Troll, Rock is not the right deck for it. You don't want to dump your threats and 2/1 is underwhelming. A better flex spot option is Bitterblossom, Tireless Tracker, Thrun, the Last Troll, Phyrexian Obliterator, Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.
After making your adjustments the last tweak would be to fill some of your extra slots with a bit more removal. Everything you have is good but I'd suggest 2 more pieces. Cast Down or Go for the Throat or Victim of Night.
It's certainly not the only way possible but here is how I currently build the deck Rock 2018 & 3/4
