Quag Sickness Discussion

Big daddy Erebos, God of the Dead would be a perfect fit here. Gatekeeper of Malakir and Geralf's Messenger are both high-devotion powerhouses. If you feel like shelling out the cash, Phyrexian Obliterator would be disgusting in here.

You could also use some more efficient and effective removal. Go for the Throat , Victim of Night , Fatal Push , and Hero's Downfall are all great options you have available to you. I'd look to play 6-8 pieces of removal in a deck like this.

If I were you, my changes to the deck would look something like this:
OUT: 1x Abhorrent Overlord , 1x Disciple of Phenax , 2x Korlash, Heir to Blackblade , 2x Squelching Leeches , 1x Barter in Blood , 1x Corrupt , 1x March of the Returned , 1x Mind Rot , 1x Sanguimancy , 1x Quag Sickness , 2x Sinister Possession , 1x Murder , and 1x Sands of Delirium .
IN: 3x Fatal Push , 3x Go for the Throat , 2x Erebos, God of the Dead , 2x Phyrexian Obliterator , 3x Gatekeeper of Malakir , and 3x Geralf's Messenger .

That's my take, anyway. Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Side Note: Lure on Tangle Asp with Shielded by Faith also functions well enough. Damage is low but board sweeping opponents creatures every turn is fun. Just beware of black cards like Quag Sickness. In that situation you can use cards like Brave the Elements or Spectra Ward. Assault Suit is to counter cards that force you to sacrifice.

Darth_Savage on 50 Shades of Gary, how high is your devotion?

I like the idea of black devotion however your curve here seems off. Basically you have too many high cmc cards. I would add a creature like Bloodsoaked Champion adds devotion and is easy to recur to make way for 4 of it, I'd cut Palace Siege and Lord of the Void since in both cases you probably want a Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Abhorrent Overlord working on the devotion theme.

There are also probably a few too many 4cmc cards, what you cut is dependent on your play stile, though personally I'd keep 2x of Liliana of the Dark Realms and up Liliana's Reaver to a 4x but cut Crypt Ghast. I'd also drop Quag Sickness as it isn't a great removal spell and run Geralf's Messenger over the Vampire Nighthawk.

Probably worth noting that Malicious Affliction isn't modern legal also if it helps have a look at my mono devotion deck Sweet Devotion also a work in progress...

There are some fun combos in black and blue and you have some of them in the deck already except a couple of pieces are missing.

Gravecrawler + Diregraf Captain

Now all you need is a good way to sacrafice creatures at will. Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar

Rooftop Storm Will allow you to sac without having to have the mana to recast every turn. This will also give you infinite colorless mana.

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Rooftop Storm + Ashnod's Altar +Gravecrawler = x +1/+1 counters then use Rogue's Passage

Leyline of the Void + Helm of Obedience = exile libriary

Card synergies

Intruder Alarm + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

Suggestions for Mana rocks. I've listed the onces that I like to use. The issue that I'm seeing is that you don't have a way to ramp into your higher end spells. I would cut Brain in a Jar, Soul Separator,Quag Sickness, Whispers of Emrakul, Spelltwine for the mana rocks below with an * by them. I don't like Mind Sludge,Macabre Waltz,Horrifying Revelation,Ghoulcaller's Chant,Despise,Collective Brutality. I think in a 1v1 game that the cards are fine but for multiplay games you might what something that has a better impact on the board. The only replacements that come to mind right now are Cyclonic Rift, In Garruk's Wake and Languish if price isn't an option then Damnation might be a good fit.

Sol Ring*

Mana Vault

Silver Myr

Plague Myr

Talisman of Dominance*

Dimir Signet

Darksteel Ingot

Ashnod's Altar*

Phyrexian Altar

Read the Bones, Quag Sickness, Underworld Dreams, probably Liliana's Caress, Darkness, Death Denied, Footbottom Feast, Foul-Tongue Shriek, Grim Harvest, Pack's Disdain, Suffer the Past should just be Exsanguinate, Aphetto Dredging, Call to the Netherworld, Despise and Duress, In Garruk's Wake, Restless Dreams, Staff of the Death Magus, Well of Lost Dreams.

You have an irrational amount of "Return creature from your graveyard to your hand" cards. It's not like you're dredging your deck, you have no need for them in the first place.

In my experience, Army of the Damned is rather color intensive for tron. Not impossible to use, but quite risky. If you decide you want to risk it, you are really going to want 4 Prophetic Prisms, and should consider adding another 4 swamps. I'd also drop the Dash Hopes, the 5 damage they will likely let themselves take is unlikely to be significant (the rest of your deck is either going to zombie horde for a huge amount of damage, or do direct damage that is likely just short of being able to kill the opponent) and its too color intensive for tron, even with Urborg.

If your playgroup uses infect at all, you should consider Wretched Banquet, it will allow you to kill their first creature on your first turn, and should prove useful until you can cast Army of the Damned. Also, the last thing you want is land destruction taking tron offline, which is what Warping Wail is for. I'd also dump Quag Sickness and Throttle from the sideboard.

You need to be running a playset of Nantuko Husk. Quag Sickness is a 3 drop enchantment... it would be better to trade it out for a Murder or kill spell. Also, Shamble Back is a great card to be running a playset of if you have Ultimate Price.
