Selphiron on Thar be pirates on these seas!

Here are some other suggestions: Piracy Charm. The following cards are more "Thief"-themed cards but they still suit in this deck I think. Morgue Theft, Morsel Theft, Psychic Theft, Thieves' Fortune, Triton Shorethief, Thief of Blood, Scroll Thief, Rootwater Thief (this one is actually pretty sick), Notion Thief, Master Thief, Jhessian Thief, Ingenious Thief, Identity Thief, Grimoire Thief, Dream Thief, Daring Thief (since you have some bad cards, you can exchange them for better cards with an opponent), Bala Ged Thief, Aura Thief

Also, anything with Persist (plus Undying Evil) or anything that gives -1/-1 counters also work, since the +1/+1 counters and the -1/-1 counters will cancel each other out. Examples include Murderous Redcap, Carnifex Demon, etc.

121.3. If a permanent has both a +1/+1 counter and a -1/-1 counter on it, N +1/+1 and N -1/-1 counters are removed from it as a state-based action, where N is the smaller of the number of +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters on it. See rule 704.

Vampire Hexmage and Thief of Blood also work, although I don't think that the latter is Modern legal, and Hexmage is more used to get a 20/20 turn 3 with Dark Depths.

Mono Black is notoriously weak to those kinds of decks Pinkie_Satanas, Red has artifact removal at least but all black gets is Gate to Phyrexia. I would suggest adding in Nev's Disk or more non-creature nukes like Boompile, Perilous Vault, or Karn Liberated to deal with pillowfort but overall he has all the cards black can use to beat those decks. Keep in mind Vampire Hexmage, AEther Snap, and Thief of Blood exist and can nuke walker decks or instantly transform Dark Depths.

Cards that could come out for upgrades that i found are Sever the Bloodline, same name is not really relevant there is way better removal. Banshee of the Dread Choir, Blood Bairn, Caller of the Pack, Cloudthresher, Eater of Hope, Extractor Demon, Great Oak Guardian, Indrik Stomphowler, Altar's Reap, Thief of Blood and Ambition's Cost could all be better cards i think.

I cast Thief of Blood. Response?

The only place I've seen it used well is playing it the turn you go off with Heartless Hidetsugu, but let me think for a minute...

I got nothing in G/W. All I could think of is Thief of Blood/Vampire Hexmage. Maybe just gain excessive amounts of life so it doesn't matter? That seems more of a Trostani, Selesnya's Voice deck though.

I've once cast Thief of Blood when one of my opponents was playing with Dromoka, the Eternal and it was hilarious. Suddenly his army was reduced to simple 1/1's and 2/2's while the thief was a massive +50/+50. Not to mention all the planeswalkers it killed. I've added it to my Olivia deck and never regretted it.

Oh, and if you can give it haste (shouldn't be too hard), well ...

Thanks for the input Raven...The Abhorrent Overlord actually combos pretty amazing with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest which I have used as a win con a few times. The Verdurous Gearhulk is just here for efficiency and the recursion of the counters and the Thief of Blood can be used with both of them to tron after a Death Cloud or similar effect...But in all honesty by themselves they are pretty weak, they are more about setting up for some obscure combos that keep opponents guessing. Most people go after the big combo pieces such as the Triskelion, Spike Feeder, and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. By dropping one of these they instantly get attention and some of the cards you mentioned earlier get left alone seen as the lesser of the threats. But your suggestions are definitely welcomed and appreciated.
