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!

Hey dude I love this deck. Definitely a +1 from me! It's refreshing to see a dragon deck that's not 5 colors. Recursion is one of my favorite mechanics in Magic. I'm a very seasoned Magic player and I can't express to you how much I love Scroll Rack It would be a great addition. 2 other cards for draw that I absolutely love and that I think are completely underated are Morbid Curiosity and Sanguimancy Also for another way to blink your commander, I'd recommend Conjurer's Closet Last card that I want to mention that is neat, but maybe not a necessary include is Cryptic Gateway

I really like the concept of the deck, however I think that you have a lot of cards which don't add much value to the strategy.

For cards you could easily cut:

Iona, Shield of Emeria, Cloudshift, Essence Flux, Graceful Adept, Sen Triplets, Greed, Leyline of Anticipation, Near-Death Experience, Paradox Haze, Bond of Agony, Enduring Ideal, Sanguimancy, Temporal Extortion, Conjurer's Closet, Phyrexian Processor, Spellbook, Vedalken Orrery and Carrion Howler. You also have too many lands, you could easily go down to 36 and be fine.

As for cards I would add to the deck:

And if you're concerned about discarding to handsize, Reliquary Tower and Library of Leng between the two should be enough. But for the most part you don't really card, just sculpt your best 7 and go from there.

Hopefully this'll help streamline the deck.

Blo on two-color devotion for gods

1 year ago

So summarised:

- Devotion counts only mana symbols in your permanents' mana costs — the cost in the upper right corner of the card.<br>
- Hybrid mana symbols, monocolored hybrid mana symbols, and Phyrexian mana symbols do count toward your devotion to their colors. <br>
- Only colored mana symbols count; it doesn't matter how much a permanent costs to cast, just how much colored mana.<br>

- If a God enters the battlefield, your devotion to its color (including the mana symbols in the mana cost of the God itself) will determine if a creature entered the battlefield or not, for abilities that trigger whenever a creature enters the battlefield.

Then you should know that devotion does not use the stack, it is simply checked at any possible point in the game as long as there is a permanent in play (or spell on the stack) with the devotion mechanic.
As to your new post, which i just caught, all your gods will be creatures and can do whatever creatures normally can at the same time. they are however, still also legendary enchantments, so a Merciless Eviction with the mode enchantments would exile them all, as would the mode creatures, since they are both types.

I'm not sure I follow what you mean by the god subtype being a restriction. There are permanents without the god subtype such as Gray Merchant of Asphodel which use the devotion mechanic. Any permanent (or spell such as Sanguimancy) with the devotion mechanic will work the same. It is just that the better cards are the legendary enchantment creature cards with a God subtype.
Any permanent in play under your control will count towards the devotion of that colour. i.e. If you control 3 Beetleback Chief and a Purphoros, God of the Forge you will have a devotion of 7 and purphoros will be a creature. If you then cast a Xenagos, God of Revels and it resolves, Purphoros will see a creature enter the battlefield and trigger, because your devotion to red and green is also 7 at the point of Xenagos entering the battlefield, even though your devotion will be 9 (8 Red and 1 Green) right after that thanks to Xenagos' mana symbols.
If you would however only have 2 beetlebacks and a purhoros, your devotion would be 5 towards and Xenagos would not trigger purhoros, even though it's a creature immidiately after it enters the battlefield and you would then have a devotion of 7 towards Red and Green.

So besides your commander you have only 5 cards that have blue in them. I would go mono black if you are not utilizing that color more with card draw, counter spells, control.

Dread Slaver is good in limited but not edh, it won't stay around long for it to take a bunch of stuff and also people wont mind taking the 3 to keep their dorks. you can replace it with a better beater/ blocker i suggest Scourge of Nel Toth

Highborn Ghoul does nothing in this format. it can be replaced with something to get chip away at opponents life better i suggest Gempalm Polluter

Nested Ghoul barely replaces himself when lost, it can be taken out for Noosegraf Mob which adds a few more guys to the table

take out Disentomb and replace it with Reanimate to cut out the middleman, your hand. same goes for Raise Dead i would put in Animate Dead because it puts it on the field and can take from any yard. i would also cut Gravepurge and slot in Zombie Apocalypse yeah it is double the mana but you dont clutter your top deck and get all your guys out instead of slowly over the course of a few turns. remove Macabre Waltz for Dance of the Dead for the same reasons as Disentomb. another mass reanimate spell is Living Death my opinion would to remove Urza's Incubator for it.

to get into more blue take out Sanguimancy and add in Frantic Search for free card draw basically. also remove Underworld Connections for Rhystic Study. Life's Finale can be replaced with Cyclonic Rift. You already have Lord of the Accursed so Graf Harvest can come out for Lim-Dul's Vault to set up what you need. i would take out Liliana's Indignation for Traumatize indulgence is such abad mana sink you should add Dark Salvation as a mana sink and remove From Under the Floorboards. adding Traumatize works well with cards like Undead Alchemist so to slot him in remove Liliana's Reaver in addition to buff this little synergy remove Darkest Hour for Altar of the Brood to make tokens all night.

Haunted Fengraf is slow because you sac lands and you dont even get to choose you target i would replace it with Unholy Grotto. take out Leechridden Swamp for a swamp there are better ways to get to your opponents life with your mana. graveyard decks do not need Reliquary Tower.

i see you arent running the grimgrin-gravecrawler-diregraf captain combo, i would take out Jet Medallion for Phyrexian Altar to be able to kill the table. also for replacements for the captain remove Adaptive Automaton and Prized Amalgam (its slow) for Vengeful Dead and Plague Belcher

i would also try to find more slots for a for like 4 counter spells

As long as you're doing monoblack with lots of black devotion and Swamps, I would also recommend Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Nightmare, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Nightmare Lash, Squelching Leeches, Abhorrent Overlord, Erebos, God of the Dead, Mogis's Marauder, and Sanguimancy.

A few random suggestions that do well in monoblack EDH are Dictate of Erebos, Vampire Hexmage, Necropolis Regent, Blood Seeker, and Thief of Blood.

I think you would have a lot of success in this deck if you made it a little more Voltron-y around Drana. ★★★☆☆ Let me know what you think of the suggestions. Good luck.
