Tribute to Hunger Discussion

Thx for the suggestion, but atm i have no flexspot in the 3cmc Slot and 10 is overall more than enough. But i give it a try in the SD instead of Tribute to Hunger.

unos on Rakdos Discard Punishment

I notice that you're running 20 lands. It's not much. Whenever you have to use Smallpox you will be throwing one of those lands away. I think that's bad, lands are precious to red/black (without access to Dark Ritual, Seething Song and all the other mana spike spells that produced 2 more mana than they costed)

Either you run something like Wayfarer's Bauble to compensate,

Or you can try and find better modern-legal forced sacrifice spells. I'll name some you could choose from:

  • Geth's Verdict as you see no disadvantges for you like you have on poxy. And it's instant. You can even disrupt their attacks in their turn.

  • Cruel Edict the basic version, a sorcery.

  • Consuming Vapors (extremely potent thanks to the free rebound in the following turn. Plus you can use some life gain.)

  • Tribute to Hunger similar to the above but instant

  • To the Slaughter is new to me but seems devastating. Instant

There's a bunch of others (for example Hit from Hit/Run (that burns),) you just have to explore a card search engine with "sacrifices a" "color:black or :Black+red" and "legality: modern"

Thanks for the suggestions! Against Bogles I feel like Tribute to Hunger is good because they'll be buffing their guy enough that the lifegain will make a difference, however I see how it would be good against Elves. As for the discard I am having trouble on finding what to take out, as I like the deck how it is. Maybe take out Remand and/or Gitaxian Probe but then I'd lose card advantage. Maybe Dismember as I've yet to see it work in the deck yet... As of now though I do not have the money for Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize, as I am leaning more towards aggro than control faeries I still cannot deny the versatility of these discard cards.

WAGS72 on BW Ally drain

Looks like a pretty good deck! Allies are a lot of fun. You might want to try Isolated Chapel instead of some of the basic lands. Oath of Gideon is a great card for putting down ally tokens as well as helping planeswalkers and costs less to cast than Allied Reinforcements. If you want to drop some ally tokens on an opponents turn to gain some life before combat damage, Join the Ranks is just like Allied Reinforcements except it is an instant. For removal I'd suggest Path to Exile and Tribute to Hunger. Path to Exile is a great one drop instant that removes creatures even if they have "indestructible" and Tribute to Hunger is great for getting around "hexproof" and "protection" as well as gaining you some life. In an ally deck you don't really want your creatures to die at all if you can help it so I don't think that Bone Splinters is a great choice for this deck. You might also want to try out some one drop creatures for early damage. Hada Freeblade is great for this because he can swing for damage early in the game as well as grow to be very strong over time. Nice deck overall!

Some suggestions for Modern- Infect and Bogles are very good at playing around targeted removal, especially when it's 3 CMC. To get around this, you may want to sideboard or even mainboard a few sacrifice effects. Good ones include Gatekeeper of Malakir, Tribute to Hunger, Geth's Verdict, and (budget permitting) Liliana of the Veil. Cool deck

are all pretty good. As mentioned previously though, Killing Wave and Choice of Damnations rule. Oh, and Death Cloud!

Like the tribal vamps. I got a similar list I play casual legacy with, but not nearly as refined as this! I missed the sacrifice sync and I think I'll order a set of Tribute to Hungers and a couple Anowon, the Ruin Sages. Really sweet brew and thanks for the unintended suggestion :D +1

PS. Though I suggest Drana, Liberator of Malakir. It's pretty crazy with my LGC vampires!
