I can get behind Stab Wound . I think it's a very underrated card that can do stupid damage, but I have doubts about Sinister Possession. On the plus side when I think of Sinister Possession, I can see it really punishing aggressive tempo drops, but outside of that scope, there are just so many other things on the field in play that it doesn't really do anything against. Just my opinion though. A non-budget suggestion would be Bloodchief Ascension , or in budget would be Quest for the Gravelord ,

Blistergrub is nice, but have you thought of using Grim Haruspex or Grim Guardian or Blood Artist .

I like the feel of the deck overall, and it's super budget, which I think is awesome.

Jrjersey sounds like he knows the archetype better than I, but here's my 2c.

I would add at least one more set of 1-drops. Tormented Hero or Gnarled Scarhide or both. Get that aggro going turn 1.Read the Bones vs Sign in Blood is something to consider. Both have their pros and cons.Herald of Torment is great as either a creature or an Aura. But the Mogis's Marauder and Master of the Feast are nice too and I'm not sure you want that many 3-drops creatures.Murderous Cut or Hero's Downfall over Stab Wound IMO.Maybe Covenant of Blood as a finisher in case the board stalls, but I think that's too expensive to main deck and more of a sideboard consideration.I sure the Leeching Sliver isn't pulling its weight here, easy drop to make some room.I tried Pain Seer for a short time and didn't like it. Really felt like it was doing more damage to me than the cards were worth. However, I was running more suicide cards like Thoughtseize and Necrogen Scudder that certainly could have tainted my view.

I'm thinking hard about Claim of Erebos vs. the Stab Wound . Would cut the mana cost to 2, and 2 to use it. Could be helpful when the opponent is stalling my attacks.

Play 4x Hero's Downfall as Benchpepper said and take out Stab Wound , it's an unnessecary card in a deck like this and could be easily replaced by a playset of Murderous Cut if you're under a tight budget.

Check out my new Elemental deck under my profile!

Maybe take out Stab Wound for it.

Hey, cool to see that someone else is also trying the same strategy as I do. I'm also building an enchantment creature deck and using stuff like Stab Wound , Mogis, God of Slaughter and most notably Extinguish All Hope .

But my deck is BRW based opening some more options for defensive starts Nyx-Fleece Ram for example and some more flying finisher options in Master of the Feast and Butcher of the Horde (the only non-enchantment creature in the entire deck). Also Utter End can exile like everything, even Planeswalkers and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker (besides Stormbreath Dragon ).Also I left out Forgeborn Oreads , because it's dying to my own Anger of the Gods .

removed 1x Stab Wound all 3x Debilitating Injury a blue yellow fetchland since i'm heavy on Plains and a couple other cards that didn't make sense in this deck (totalling 7 cards removed.)

Added: 1x Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker 4x Arrow Storm 1x Utter End to max it sense i removed some creature control and 1x Swamp since i was a little lopsided on the mana gen in recent games.

Eternal Thirst works more in sync with all the removal in the deck; you get the lifelink and the pump. Plus, the deck is geared toward a turn 6 or 7 win, so the reanimate function on the Whip doesn't help unless I'm playing another removal/control deck. But Whip of Erebos would be a decent sideboard card for that situation. I might slide in a couple in place of Flesh to Dust or Stab Wound . Price
