Lord of lineage seems out of place here since your not running that many vampires. I would swap him for Debt to the Deathless as a nice finisher.

All of your creatures already have lifelink, there is literally no reason to have Whip of Erebos or Vault of the Archangel.

You might want to look at Blood Artist and Suture Priest

hey, first of all , its great to see another mardu / dega enthusiast breaching into modern territory.

i instantly recognized a lot of the cards in your deck , as it reminds me a lot of my Deck

that being said , i see some problems that i would like to adress.

first of all i think you should add more lands. playing 6 cards that cost 4 mana just isnt gonna work with just 20 lands.other than that , i think your manabase seems fine , i am not convinced of Nomad Outpostas our colours really do favor speed over anything else.

next thing , and this is where its getting more difficult.i think going so heavy into the 4 drops is a bad idea even if butcher and Lady falkenrath have the exact same purpose.the thing is, this is strong , but it is not strong enough to really be something to reckon with. its basically only focused on the sac interaction between butcher and Aristocrat and literally anything else you run.also , confidant is gonna hurt you. i see that butcher can gain some of that back , but ive tested and researched a lot and i often found getting hit for 4 , playing something that oftentimes wont be able to make it through once isnt worth it.what this all boils down to is , i think you should check out existing mardu modern decks on this site , i personally recommend that you check out and his great deck to give you an idea of what else is out there and then choose a path.from what ive seen , and concluded with others , there lie some pretty strong archetypes in the mardu colours. Mardu Tokens ,Mardu Tempo ,Mardu Aristocrats, Mardu Burn , and even some midrange variants. i just feel like picking something like one of those as a primer will give you a headstart on what will be a great modern deck in mardu colours.for the tokens approach , check out tomazinhal and feel free to contact him , hes a great guy.if you are more into the very sketchy midrange approach , i have been really succesful with my munk deck and would love to share some insights i gathered.i am also very familiar with several mardu aristocrat decks and have played them extensively.

stay mardu , stay awesome!

(also super secret deck tech that absolutely nobody knows about , there is this card Vault of the Archangel , and it is really really good.)

I love your deck! I was actually brainstorming just last night about a deck like this and actually had about 25 cards in your deck list already set aside for it. I saw yours and decided to just build it finally and stop procrastinating.

This is what I ended up with: Satan's Tower

Same theme just my take on it. I love your take as well and I am curious to hear what you think of mine.

Yours runs more tokens and ways to pump Champion of the Parish which I love and I gave you a shout-out for the Sublime Archangel because that is golden in this build.

My deck focuses more on getting out the turn 3 5/5 flying demon tokens and then giving them double strike on turn 4. I also lowered the curved so I could run on 20 land 2 of which are Vault of the Archangel for both sustain and defense. I also went with different one drops to facilitate the Skirsdag High Priest triggers and maintain my longevity against burn decks and other early agro decks.

I also run just a few more sac outlets for the morbid triggers and protection from the Ravenous Demon  Flips. I hope you see something in my version that you like and helps a bit but as I said straight up I like your deck a lot and mine is just a different take on it.

That's interesting. I usually /try/ to beat tron by taking threats. Might try that differently next time. I've actually handily beaten Bloom before with Vault of the Archangel haha.

TheAlexGnan - Grixis delver pretty much is T1. It's a good deck. Delver never really goes away. Against Delver Courser is better because it can block the red threats like Monastery Swiftspear whereas Finks can't. Well, it can like twice, whereas Courser can forever.

tooTimid - That is actually a legit downside. I don't see CCompany becoming huge but I don't see it going away completely.

Femme_Fatale - I can trace the history of this deck back in various important choices. The first was swapping Dark Confidant for Taz and some other spells. The second was swapping Gavony Township for Vault of the Archangel. The third was swapping Finks for Courser. It's essentially become far, far more grindy over time.
