landofMordor Thanks for the feedback.

Alms of the Vein is great in certain matchups, but IMO not good enough to mainboard. As you can see I have it in the SB here versus burn and to swap for Fiery Temper against decks without small creatures.

The synergy of Demigod of Revenge in this deck is with Disciple of Deceit, when you untap Diciple you put one god in the grave and get the other one to play for putting both (or more) on the field, or if you need Voldaren Pariah or any of the 5 CMC sideboard cards you get that the first activation, then on second activation put Pariah on the field with madness and get a new god. Demigod also has great synergy with self discard in general, and is awesomw against control since the cast trigger can't be countered. For me it has been super good.

Bomat Courier is a discard outlet and hand refiller that's also aggressive, plus he turns on our Skirsdag High Priest on demand and flips liliana heretic healer, it is also a very good card against Living End which is no the rise in modern. Vexing Devil is good early pressure, turns on skirsdag, flips liliana and comes back the same turn, and can be picked up with Grave Scrabbler for more pressure. This deck goes for burn/aggro and aims to pressure the life total fast, and the self sacrifice effects are an important part of the synergy with making sure there are creatures dying and put in the grave to recur.

So far in testing the copters, skirsdag and attacks have been enough to tap my stuff, but I'm considering adding a 1-off Cultivator's caravan or a 4th copter, you don't really want more than 1 vehicle in play though, so they are often bad topdecks which is why I run 3 and rely on looting and Diciple activations to find one. I used to run this with 4 Caravans and Asylum Seeker for crewing, but I like this version better since the copters doubles as a discard outlet.

Mcoronato, yeah, despite dark ritual being a god awful card to look at, I find that it is a really good black ramp that deserves a set of 4 in most black decks that are looking to get control early. It's practically a black lotus for black. Of course, it costs one so its three mana turn one, not 4 like the lotus. As far as how to fit it in, you could look to add some more token generation, then you wouldn't need as many creatures. Spells like Sengir Autocrat, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Skirsdag High Priest, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Lingering Souls, Secure the Wastes, and Sram's Expertise are some good ways of creating tokens to sacrafice.

Can't remember if Path to Exile and Fatal Push are legal in legacy but they are very good counterspells that I try to fit in with most black and/or white modern decks.

Also, here are some other cards I can think of that you might be interested in: Hell's Caretaker, Genju of the Fens, Vampiric Rites, Bitterblossom, Leyline of the Void, Vault of the Archangel.

Finally, what's going on with your sideboard? Seems a little out of place lol :)

Oh and I forgot to mention Skirsdag High Priest for an alternate wincon. The morbid is so easy to activate here.

Lower the number of apostles and add in some Skirsdag High Priest for some fast demon tokens

You should really add Skirsdag High Priest to mainboard that guy is a monster

Also you're missing 2 cards for 60. It would be perfect!

Nice deck!
