The Rack Discussion

Love your deck so far! I'm also looking to foray into Modern with 8-Rack. Strange choice to use Victim of the night, considering Vendetta would work much better, and after all, this is modern, no one's playing anything more than a 4-Drop. Duress should make an appearance here too. If you haven't purchased the cards yet, keep in mind that older versions of The Rack go for wayyyy cheaper yet still retain legality thanks to reprints.

Considering you're relying on discard to eliminate threats, cards that can take advantage of your opponent's graveyard (e.g. Animate Dead) could be incredibly resourceful, and considering you're playing Golgari, the options are there. I can see The Rack being very, very powerful in this deck. Also, what's all the Elf ramping for? I can't seem to see any expensive wincons that would necessitate all the ramping (Practically any card with in it's casting cost, Craterhoof Behemoth, etc.) Other than that, with a bit of work this could be a great deck. :3

ok, a couple of updates!
10-08-18 Played a super set against big affinity.
Game 1 - Held off my opponent with Fatal Push until i could drop an Ensnaring Bridge and Liliana of the Veil. Bontu's Last Reckoning cleared all leftover creatures and The Rack coupled with Shrieking Affliction killed him.
Game 1 - My opponent emptied his hand fast making The Rack seem like a good turn 3 play. Ensnaring Bridge kept his creatures from swinging in until he dropped a huge Walking Ballista and shot me dead.
Game 2 - Emptied my opponent's hand and Surgical Extraction all his ballistas. all was going according to plan until he swung in under my bridge with Inkmoth Nexus and added counters to me with an animation module or something like that. I was holding a card i couldn't get rid of. Moved on to next set.
Game 3. Everything was going right. All cards were locked down by Ensnaring Bridge and Liliana of the Veil until Walking Ballista came out and pinged me for my last 3 life. that was the set. Went 1-2 but was extremely fun and learned alot. This was good practice for the tournament happening the next day. Will post details of that tomorrow.

So it's easier to post updates in comments rather than post in updates.
Played against Abzan midrange 2 nights ago and went 2-1. Was stoked!
Game 2 - My opponent got so many creatures out that I could not keep up. Once I found a bridge he dropped Flickerwisp and swung in for lethal which was 24 I think?
Game 3 - God hand for me. Turn 1 IoK into Turn 2 Thoughtseize into Turns 3 & 4 Raven's Crime dropping a Liliana of the Veil turn 5 followed up in this order Ensnaring Bridge, Shrieking Affliction x2 and then The Rack. Was awesome.
May go to the local tournament this Tuesday, itching to take the deck out. Will see. Take care all.

I'd like to suggest replacing Phyrexian Arena with cards like Skeletal Scrying or Sign in Blood, that'll give you the option to choose when you're low on health. With the Arena you have no way of ridding yourself of it. Creature's like Tombstalker and Gurmag Angler are pretty good since you'll be filling your GY pretty fast.
