Tell me if I cast the Vexing Devil and even if he accepts to take 4 damage, I can still do Soul's Fire or Fling even if I have to sacrifice the creature and it takes 8 damage ...?

tiagompm I think they would work well with the deck, especially with Chandra's Spitfire as the Vexing Devil and the Soul's Fire or Fling would cause two separate instances of damage. I'll go ahead and float in the maybeboard and consider it for later.

Hello!I loved your deck! Inexpensive and destructive as you are asked to give nightmares to opponents! I have two copies of Vexing Devil, do you think they fit the deck ...? Thank you and continue to feed "the nigtmare" ... muuuahahahahah !!!

Eidolon of the Great Revel would be fantastic here since you do not mind the incremental life loss and it will definitely hurt your average opponent more. I would main deck 4 of them. Also run a bit more burn cards. Stuff like Lightning Helix and maybe even Skullcrack. Vexing Devil really is not good in Modern since removal is so common in the format, I will admit though that the Devil is amazing in Legacy. Rift Bolt is a good option as well. If you run a good Fetch/Shock mana base then you can get rid of the Plunge's also. I agree with Demention about running the Temur Battle Rage and would honestly run those over the Artful Dodge especially since Dodge is such an obvious telegraphed play to your opponent.

Yeti_Confetti in place of the bauble I would run Magmatic Insight. Since your deck needs to just hit four lands and you generally get card advantage from BBE and CoCo any extra lands in your hand can be used for other things.

You want to be quick early on and then hit hard mid to late game. what you are going for is a midrange aggro deck and you should stick to it's strengths. Adding in things like vengevine will make the deck clunky.

You want to stick to having creatures that hit the board and hit quickly, adding in vengevine is an idea, but it works best in graveyard decks. and having to many 3 and 4 cmc cards can slow you down really hard.

Lastly, as a side note. Replace 1 copy of groundbreaker, 1 copy of ball lightning and 1 copy of experiment one with 3 copies of Vexing Devil. Cascading into this would throw an extra threat that causes your opponent to make a choice, a choice that can help you out. Also, instead of ramgang, I would run Goblin Guide for early game pressure.

Gideon of the Trials might be the better Gideon here, and there are some Modern creatures like Vexing Devil that will let you damage opponents early or get a great creature for crewing.

Champion of the Parish, Thraben Inspector, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Grand Abolisher, and Thalia's Lieutenant would give you a humans sub-theme making Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial possible inclusions, as well. It's probably more important in mod Modern that you have hate bears (creatures with tax effects) that limit your opponents instead of creatures that pump your vehicles. You need to slow down the pace of play to make your vehicles impactful. Monastery Swiftspear would also be a cool inclusion since you could trigger Prowess off of casting artifacts to help it crew larger vehicles.

You should also run Path to Exile and/or Lightning Bolt for early removal and maybe Faithless Looting for draw. Consider ditching the Gearhulks.

If you play a creature list with more hate bears, you definitely want something like Oblivion Ring or Shatterstorm in the sideboard to fight off Chalice of the Void on 1 and 2 because Disenchant and Ancient Grudge will get beat by Chalice, too.

Have fun with the vehicles!

One card missing from the discussion is Vexing Devil, and I believe it requires an immediate response from the opponent and might be an all star in the deck.

I think you might also want to consider Blood Moon in the sideboard and Dragon's Claw for mirror matches.
