Rend Flesh Discussion

Madcookie on Activated abilitys + removal

The order is this. You activate Abyssal Hunter and his ability goes on the stack. The opponent responds with Rend Flesh killing your hunter, but his ability is still on the stack. If no other abilities are played Abyssal Hunter resolves, tapping the targeted creature and doing 1 damage to it. Although it is not specified on gatherer, I'm basing my answer on the fact that his ability works very much like Champion of Wits'

Use Champion of Wits’s power as the first ability resolves to determine if you want to use the ability and how many cards you draw if you do. If you use the ability, you discard two cards regardless of how many cards you draw. If Champion of Wits leaves the battlefield before that ability resolves, use its last known power. (2017-07-14)

In that sense if Abyssal Hunter's power was different from 1, say he died from Last Gasp he wouldn't do damage at all, but would still tap the creature.

I second all Pat's comments except I really do like Rend Flesh. I like it better than Bone Splinters. You have a lot of sac outlets and the sorcery speed is a real drawback.

Have you considered Trading Post, Geralf's Messenger, Puppeteer Clique, Cauldron of Souls? I really like undying/persist in this deck. There is also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, but price is a factor with him.

A couple things I don't like: Pitiless Plunderer, Cryptbreaker

I definitely cut:

Tenacious Dead (unless there's a combo I'm missing) Diregraf Colossus (I don't think there are enough zombies here) Captivating Crew (I tried this in a couple sac decks, but the 4 was just way too much.) Desecrated Tomb (bats seem low impact) Bone Splinters Murder Rend Flesh (You have a lot more single target removal spells than I generally like to run, though that's partially personal preference) Warstorm Surge/Impact Tremors (I might be missing a combo with these, though)

I'd probably cut:

Both Squees. I think they're too slow. Harvester of Souls Nim Deathmantle (unless you want to combo off) Aftershock

I'd suggest: Greater Gargadon Talisman of Indulgence (way better than the diamonds) Goblin Bombardment Yahenni, Undying Partisan Dark Prophecy

Have you considered Snuff Out, Sudden Death or Rend Flesh? The majority of your removal is 2 CMC or less and often has a caveat of some sort. Rend Flesh and Sudden Death are 3 CMC, but I'd consider them pretty reliable removal since (a) the caveat of Rend Flesh is pretty uncommon, I think, and (b) the split second on Sudden Death will ensure the kill. As for Snuff Out, this card functions like another Pact. I assume you'll most often be casting it by paying life rather than hard-casting, and the deck already has plenty of life-costed spells so I don't imagine one more will hurt the balance.

Lastly, why no Sol Ring? I assume its because most your kill spells are only 2 CMC and/or have double black. Did you ever try running it? How did it play out?

Always love me some demons. Think Blood Speaker, Mark of the Oni and Rend Flesh could all be flavorful and worthwhile additions.

Chill to the Bone, Deny Reality, Flesh to Dust, Heartstabber Mosquito all cost too much for removal. IMO you should only play removal at 1,2 or 3 cmc. Things like Last Gasp or Grasp of Darkness are good in this format also Rend Flesh and Eyeblight's Ending
