Nobody goes all Thoughtseize no Inquisition. Inquisition already hits 90% of threats. Do you think it's worth the 2 life (I understand it works well with Unlife)?

Fetchland mana bases rarely play more than 2 of any shockland. You never need to fetch more than 2, so why not play something with more upside, like Fetid Heath, Shambling Vent, or Concealed Courtyard?

Slaughter Pact is only here so you can tutor and play with Beseech the Queen turn 3 to remove a combo creature. Is it worth upgrading to Fatal Push at the cost of speed?

Arid Mesa doesn't fetch anything that Windswept Heath doesn't here, so I just have Heath to throw people off the Blood Moon. Is it working haha?

You pointed me to this deck, so don't get mad...


To be fair, this is a really cool toolbox combo deck!

MisterMuffin21 Thanks for the feedback! Weaponcraft Enthusiast couldn't quite do the trick because the Servos are colorless, sadly. I really like the Lightning Greaves/ Swiftfoot Boots idea, probably the boots so I can still Tainted Strike the demon for an insta-kill as soon as a drop him. Should I go down some Tragic Slips and go up to 4 Fatal Push? I haven't got the sideboard together, but I feel Doomblade and/or Slaughter Pact would belong in there.

I've got a couple of recommendation for your deck:

-Weaponcraft Enthusiast could enable a demon right away by itself on turn 3.

-For added protection, you could try Lightning Greaves and/or Swiftfoot Boots. Both would protect your demon from spot removal AND give him haste, allowing him to attack the turn it's on the battlefield.

-Finaly, Slaughter Pact and Murderous Cut could round up you removal quite nicely, you could even go for a playset of Fatal Push, it's really good in the modern format.

Also, lol at that Tainted Strike. That is a brutal way to win a game! Hope any of this help.

Hey elfric, thanks for the feedback! On the subject of Peat Bog, I have considered adding in the charge lands (Hickory Woodlot as well), but recently, I have been running into numerous Blood Moon decks, and in those games, an extra swamp or forest makes all the difference. If your meta is different, I would suggest testing them out and seeing how they work for you. On Blood Pet, it has been itching for a spot for a while now, but there's just no card I would take out for it, you really need a critical mass of green creatures for Natural Order, and the deck is sitting just above that threshold. as for Beast Within, it is a great card, yes, but with access to black, there is cheaper creature removal such as Vendetta and Slaughter Pact to deal with Linvala, and due to how tight you will usually be running on mana, it just costs too much to make the cut.

Lol these were my pulls

promo Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign

Ammit Eternal (super good)

Ramunap Excavator, Kefnet's Last Word and Hour of Eternity (all junk)

Soul-Scar Mage (also, not great)

Gideon's Intervention (which was fine)

aanndd.. Slaughter Pact invocation. Yup, a $30 card.

I ended up with a decent BW zombie deck and went 3-2. My prize packs were reasonable, Hour of Promise and Rhonas's Last Stand(which I plan on using in Standard, so it's fine)

Ok so have you considered the other 2 pacts in B and R to work withHive Mind? Slaughter Pact won't target most of your creatures, and your opponents can't counter each other pacts so it becomes a "kill each creature and all non-black players lose" situation with hive mind. As for Pact of the Titan nobodies going to really gonna be able to do anything with said 4/4 giant token if they don't play red in their deck.

Also, two really low cost enchantment to run with this type of deck is Vile Consumption and Breathstealer's Crypt. Vile Consumption becomes an immediate clock against any deck with tokens or high number of creatures, and Breathstealer's Crypt essentially lets you know what's going in people hands and gets rid of creatures. Not to mention they draw the card still before being forced to pay 3 life and discarding. And I don't think anyone wants to pay life when facing a Nekusar build.
