Putrid Leech Discussion

Grim Flayer is by far your best option. Nothing else comes close, and even then it'll still be far worse than Goyf. If you badly need a super-budget option, Putrid Leech exists, but it's still not great.

Thanks for the suggestions 307945
My thoughts on them:
Pain Seer is too conditional and way to slow. Earliest possible draw from it is on turn 4, if he succesfully attacked in turn 3 and survives until your untap step. Dodging on more hit from Walking Ballista than Dark Confidant is not enough to play it. Night's Whisper, Bedlam Reveler and even Phyrexian Arena are just more reliable in guaranteeing you a draw or more.
I agree with Putrid Leech beeing a good beater, but I have more than enough in Scavenging Ooze and Grim Flayer. Managorger Hydra is just to slow for Modern and this deck is the wrong shell for it in my opinion.
I also agree on Domri Rade in beeing slow and don't applying any immediate pressure, but he synergizes very well with Grim Flayer. Beeing able to draw a creature after filtering with the flayer is awesome in the midgame. Domri needs some board presence to work, but secures you games when protected. An uncontested Grim Flayer into Domri Rade is an amazing position in a budget casual Modern duel.
Anyways thanks again, the suggestions helped me a lot in understanding how the deck should work.

4 Blightning seems a little excessive; I prefer T1 hand disruption myself. Ostracize is the Pauper equivalent of Despise, and is great for getting information on your opponent's play and messing up their curve.

I usually like to run a Shred Memory. It's probably bad, but having at least a maindeck answer to graveyards, as well as a way to fetch some of your other silver bullets could be great.

I don't know if you noticed this, but you can only activate Putrid Leech's ability once per turn. It is possible that I missed something, but I think that this makes the combo not work. I would add in Rancor and Groundswell, as I feel they would work great in this deck.

I think that Putrid Leech is a 4 of anytime, it is your best creature to beatdown, Chittering Rats is a great tempo swing, but the 4 damage per turn can be devastating, i think the rats are better suited for monoblack devotion.
I'm not entirely sure that it is correct to play 3 Gurmag Angler, but i believe that it is a card that you want to see at least one each game, maybe since you don't run the Satyr Wayfinder like i do it can get a little more time to have enough cards in the grave to make it cheaper for you, but this deck isn't in the worry to have them on the battlefield that soon.
Have you played the deck in any tournament yet? I was only able to play a couple games online for now.
