Dread Wanderer and Gutterbones both seem better than Tormented Hero. Sorry, but Thud doesn't work like that. Since Thud doesn't target a creature with the sacrifice, it just deals 2 damage with Tormented Hero .

Also, since you don't have anything to trigger Herioc, try Bloodsoaked Champion instead of Tormented Hero .

Nice deck.. I'm not sure if the Tormented Hero Heroic ability would trigger on the infernal plunge.. Basically you did not target him, you just sacrificed him to cast a spell. Anyway I think Essence Harvest would fit in this desk.

I really like how quick the deck is, the only thing I would change is -2 Tainted Strike and +2 Arena Athlete or +2 Tormented Hero. Reason being that giving a creature infect when the deck isn't an infect deck prevents them from doing combat damage during that tun and instead gives the opponent poison counters, which are useless unless they get 10. Overall though good deck imo.

Looks good. I would probably replace Lava Spike with Lightning Bolt because it is strictly better. In that vein, I'd also replace Blighting with Lightning Strike maybe. It's a tad bit cheaper, and Aggro needs all the discounts they can get.

You might also want to find room for Tormented Hero. He's very good in these kinds of decks.

If you're running lots of combat tricks, including a creature with heroic will be very effective. I recommend swapping Thornbow Archer out for Tormented Hero, Agent of the Fates, Ashiok's Adept, or Bloodcrazed Hoplite.

Hey. It's a good start, but there's almost no cards good enough to run that don't come with some sort of ability or benefit for casting.

I would cut things like Walking Corpse.

Consider also, that you might find more benefit in a more budget-deck, to abuse some "synergy" between cards (Like adding all "elves" that buff each other with +1/+1 to give your creatures more of a clear pattern of attack.

Also, consider that in an aggro deck, your goal should be to do escalating damage each turn.

Consider using creatures like Bloodsoaked Champion, Mardu Shadowspear, Tormented Hero, or Mogis's Marauder, using Pain Seer to draw cards.

These particular creatures are often 2 damage for 1 mana, so on turn 1 you play 1 of them. turn 2 you play, and escalate from there. In your current deck, most of your creatures are doing 2 damage for 2 mana, which is a full mana more than some of those suggestions.

Check out on google for something like "Modern, Mono Black Warriors" for what a really quick and easy modern aggro deck can be.
