Victim of Night Discussion

Kaiser_Soze on Black/green Devotion

I like the concept of a modern black devotion, I have some suggestions on how to improve this deck's overall play:

Inquisition of Kozilek = A must for any Modern black deck. It allows you to part out an opponent's hand before they get the opportunity to play Game-Changing cards. This card is among the most used in the current modern format meta and deserves a place here as pseudo removal. I would remove Victim of Night to make room.

Bloodghast = This card has an immense amount of devotion utility and would give your deck a smoother mana curve. You need some way to make board presence on turn 2 and this guy screws with control decks. I would remove Scavenging Ooze to make room.

Geralf's Messenger = Hard to get rid of and solid against any match-up, this card creates lots of devotion for your Erebos. I would remove Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver (as I am not sure what she adds OR how you can cast her).

Gatekeeper of Malakir = This card is a great addition/ alternative for the aforementioned Bloodghast. I would actually take Victim of Night out of the deck and replace it with this card. (Both add removal, but gatekeeper procs devotion).

Vampire Nighthawk = This card is amazing and deserves a spot here. Nighthawk still sees play in the meta-version of this deck and is quite good.

Thoughtseize = All around a great turn one. Not as good as Inquisition (in modern) but should be run along side it. I would say a 2 or 3 of in this deck.

I would build a suggested deck shell and post it in the comments. Thanks!

This is a lot better than the first iteration. I would include hard kill spells instead of disfigure - 3-4 Victim of Night seems a lot better. You can kill most small things with Cuombajj witches or multiples of them. Add 1 more crypt rats main. They are invaluable as a mid to late game kill condition.

LD in the sideboard is moot - it is only used VS tron, a hard matchup for sure, but a single LD spell is not going to stop them. A single Undying Evil on Chattering will be way more useful in the long run vs them and it is more versatile as it can be used in other matchups (izzet control for example).

I've tried meat shields before and don't like them. I think I finally have it all figured out though.

I pull 3 Drown in Sorrow from the sideboard to put 2 Black Sun's Zenith and 1 more Ratchet Bomb into the sideboard.

I pull 2 Doom Blade for some combination of Victim of Night and Murderous Cut.

I pull 4 Index for 2 Sage of Epityr and 2 Mystic Speculation. I will still run Dimir Charm because it is versatile and sets up my Murderous Cut. It also has flavor.

I guess that settles it for me, but please keep the comments rolling! This has been very helpful! I still need help improving this deck!

Yeah, Tasigur, the Golden Fang is amazing, but then I feel my deck is getting to conventional. Flavor is a big deal to me. But I do like the idea of Murderous Cut as a 1 or 2 of. I want an early removal so I need to playtest and see if 2 Murderous Cut, 2 Victim of Night, or 1 of each is the best option. Thanks for all the help everybody, I think my deck will be really improved after I implement these changes.

I still have no answer on 3 Drown in Sorrow + 1 Ratchet Bomb vs 2 Black Sun's Zenith + 2 Ratchet Bomb. I think I like the latter though.

JexInfinite: My counterspells are not really where I am worrying anymore though. Right now my problem is removal: mass and spot. I may run more Ratchet Bomb to handle aggro and tokens, but that still isn't enough. Although I can Ratchet Bomb the little guys and then save Dismember for the biggies, aggro creatures range from 0-3 mana and I need to wait until turn 3 to even kill their turn 1 Goblin Guide, which isn't fast enough. It's excellent vs tokens, but I still need another anti-aggro card. I may go 2 Black Sun's Zenith and 2 Ratchet Bomb in the sideboard along with 2 Dismember, 1 Victim of Night, and 1 something else in the main to round off my removal, but I still need to find that something else. Hero's Downfall?

Alright. What should I replace Doom Blade with? 1 Victim of Night and 1 of something else?

As I said in another thread not long ago, choosing between Mana Leak and Rune Snag depends on the deck you're building. Mana Leak is better if you run Delve, Snapcaster Mage and better counterspells for the late game (namely, Cryptic Command), but if you run none of the above, Rune Snag has more value.

Index and Mystic Speculation both suck, yeah. Dismember is pretty good, but there's also Victim of Night, Smother, Ultimate Price, Go for the Throat and whatever that BB Vendetta was called. Slaughter Pact is better for combo protection, I don't think it fits your current list.
