Remorseless Punishment Discussion
2 days ago
May need more lands if you want to cast Cruel Reality. 23 is low for a hard-casting 7-mana finisher.
Also, is there room for Remorseless Punishment?

Am I the only one that thinks this rarity is off?
These are fricken awesome IMO. The more Remorseless Punishment like spells the better.

Forewarning: Torrent of Hailfire seems impressive at first (some people are calling it the black cyclonic rift) but it really isn't. You could try it in a regular format, where stuff like Exsanguinate is pretty terrible. You could try it in EDH, where true Exsanguinate effects are infinitely better. It doesn't work out well in any case.
The problem with Browbeat-esque cards is that they seem good value, but giving your opponent the choice pretty much let's them choose whether to win or lose. There's no feasible frequent situation where your opponent is screwed either way while the card in question is better than other similar ones. I'd have thought people would have learnt by now from at least the recently-printed Sin Prodder and Remorseless Punishment.

Just a note: Sunscorched Desert only triggers once, when it enters the battlefield... Tapping it for mana won't make the opponent lose life, (un)fortunately.
I like the concept, but I gave up on trying to make it work, personally. Try having a sideboard, I've tried Cruel Reality and Remorseless Punishment in this type of deck, but it never really did anything :/

I have a few suggestions that I think would help speed this deck up and make it even deadlier than it already is.
Cards I think you could live without:
My first suggestion is to add 4 or 5 more land. 31 land is very low, especially for a four color build, and missing land drops will hinder your game plan significantly.
Second suggestion is to consider more mana ramp. Having great ramp is essential to a quick, efficient start. Starting off slow will usually get you killed.
Third suggestion is cards I like for this theme. Just a few badass toys for your deck to mess around with.
Fun card suggestions:

A few bits of advice.
Your curve isn't so hot. Lots of 3 and 5s, but no 4s.
Remorseless Punishment is not a good magic card. You should be running something higher impact (and preferably cheaper) in that slot.
Demigod of Revenge is good if you can dump cards into your graveyard for value, but with only 2 card advantage spells, and no discard synergy, it's not powerful enough for the slot. Something like Bloodghast may fit better here.
In general, almost every 5 drop that isn't Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Phyrexian Obliterator is worse than those two, so i don't see why you're running more than those. That's already 8 5 drops, which is a ot for modern.
A sideboard is key for success in modern. Building one will be very beneficial. I would suggest graveyard hate, Rain of Tears or Fulminator Mage, and some more interactive spells, as well as some card advantage. To play a deck in modern that is not broken, you need answers to broken decks.
In your deck, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx isn't even that good. You don't have any creatures you can cast with it, so it doesn't start producing mana unless you have 3 other lands already, and even then it's not very good because it only makes a lot of mana when you don't have many cards in hand.
Otherwise, a solid looking deck.

I'm still learning about the standard meta, but I wonder if Mind Rot is left out b/c it's not as strong as the others? ie. 3 CMC and opponent chooses? I think I'd be tempted to ditch Whispers of Emrakul and not worry about delirium. In some ways, I actually find value in seeing what an opponent chooses to discard (especially if it's in RL and they don't have a poker face). But maybe it messes with your ideal curve?
It also made me think a deck with some combo of this might be cool, but I've no idea atm what it would replace...
Also looked at these two .. tho don't think they quite beat out others you have
