Phyrexian Obliterator Discussion

MrNobleMonkey, thank you! Extirpate is an excellent replacement to Surgical Extraction. Nearly get the whole playset for the price of one extraction! As far as Demigod of Revenge I would say it's certainly the weakest card in the deck, but it usually ends up helping me fish out removal spells in order to give Phyrexian Obliterator a better chance. If I swapped out any card it'd be the demigod though. Works far better in my deck Revenge of the Underworld [Remastered] it fairs far better thanks to the engines that can put it in the graveyard. Entomb might be a good option, but I figure we want as many permanents as possible to rack up devotion. Sometimes it pays off if I've got Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, but by and large it gets 5 damage in and then gets killed off. I'll probably end up switching demigod out for either Murderous Rider or Ayara, First of Locthwain.

firstly thank you for the comment they are both great questions you have asked. I will try to explain them as best and simply as I can, sorry if I go on a little.
I am going to start with the question about the inclusion of Urborg. so Urborg makes every nonbasic land a swamp, itself included (tapping for one black mana). this allows us to play our heavy black cards like Phyrexian Obliterator or Geralf's Messenger more consistently. also later in the game increases the power of our Lashwrithe as any of our nonbasic lands we have drawn up to this stage are now swamps also, they can still tap for there nonbasic ability of course if need be.
what do they offer when they hit the field: Dark Confidant - a body with two power ( can block, attack or equip etc). Phyrexian Arena offers nothing costs more and also comes down a turn later. this is critical in the modern format.
what they offer over time: they both offer the same +1 card per turn, after the first. the life points lost per turn: Phyrexian Arena is easy at 1 life point per turn, Dark Confidant (total CMC = 98) / 60 cards=1.6333 per turn on average. so you see there is not much difference after all. if this life loss adds up or we get unlucky later in the game thankfully we have a heap of creature sacrifice outlets on hand. I hope that showed why bob is the better card.
Again thank you for your question my friend, others may have been wondering the same thing.
good luck on your journey through the darkness.

Dark confidant is not good having 4 creatures with cmc 5 and 4 creatures with cmc 4.
between 10 and 11 fetches is the normal average for 3 color rock decks like jund.
The reason why I don't run a lot of removals is that I need a lot of permanents for devotion. In total i need between 40 and 45 black symbols in my whole deck. Also, this is the reason why I don't add any other creatures (outside of Tarmogoyf that does not have black symbols.

Brago, King Eternal as the Martyr Logarius? Unfortunately I couldn't really think of many fitting magic cards with Scythes being the feature.

Phyrexian Obliterator is such a cool card! Nice Deck!
Have you thought about Collective Brutality in the sideboard for Burn?

TypicalTimmy hot garbage in the wrong deck set-up. This Demon is a badass, I mean just him with Toxic Deluge wipes the board then draw a shitload of cards. What was his thought after he played with him?
I really wish Sorin Markov was a cheaper cmc. That life total change just is too good.
Phyrexian Obliterator I really like this card and have wondered if it would work in this deck. It is good in K'rrik decks but this one is iffy. I mean the trample is great, so i could pump with shade and trample right thru.

Ah, fellow Vilis, Broker of Blood admirer. I swear this Demon is underrated. I told my best friend all about him and how awesome he is, and my friend insisted he is hot garbage.
Then he played a deck that runs him as the Commander. Went 3-0.
I'd love to recommend Phyrexian Obliterator , but I see what you are doing and he doesn't jive with your gameplan. However, I have two more suggestions;
