Destroy target non-Vampire, non-Werewolf, non-Zombie creature.
I feel like there's too much filler, not enough killer... How about Diregraf Ghoul . I've tried to keep my zombie deck to mostly creatures, I would like to have Phyrexian Obliterator In my deck but I'm not ready to shell out that money...Victim of Night is an awesome card for modern too! I really like the deck though. Please check mine out its Dead 'an' Done I've had decent play with it at FNM modern and MNModern too. Burn agro is my worst game with it.
I wanted the deck to be a fast, group slug/drain and gain, that could quickly and consistently hit my opponents for an increasing amount of life each turn.
I may switch Vampire Nighthawk in for Basilica Screecher for its sweet package deal of abilities. I want this to be more of a budget build, so I will probably stay away from Phyrexian Obliterator and most Vamp cards, as they are rather expensive for my budget.
I'm more of a casual player, so I often don't look to play competitive play tier cards. I'll consider the Bile Blight to use against my friends token decks.
you should swap Terror out for Go for the Throat , Victim of Night , or Doom Blade but the 4x Geth's Verdict is perfect. you also might want Vampire Nighthawk as they are extremely good in mono black for a lot of uses. and then there's the question are you going tribal vampires OR mono black mid-range/beat down because one way you could get Phyrexian Obliterator and the other you could start curving off into a solid wall of vampires and kill spells maybe even 4x Captivating Vampire , 4x Gatekeeper of Malakir and sideboard 2-4x Vampire Hexmage . i might even main-board 2-3x Bile Blight but you also have to think what are you going to do against a control deck that doesn't let your threats get very permanent. but thats all just my oppinion i hope your deck goes well !!!! +1
I did not get what you said about Victim of Night . Could you please rephrase?
Not really a fan of Liliana of the Dark Realms . It also seems like you might be able to upgrade Victim of Night a little. Though I am not sure how often you have to deal with humans in modern. Zombies, and Werewolves do not seem like an issue though. I guess you have to weigh humans/non artifact/non black against each other.
I just think you need a little more early game stuff. That way you don't have a dead turn. When I play tested turns one and 2 were more often dead then not. Maybe some Thoughtseize
I would take it slow and easy here because things change a lot in modern - don't rush in. Certain cards like Victim of Night and Gatekeeper of Malakir you'll see in nearly all black decks, however others you may want to think carefully about because they may end up not performing well.
This has gone through a lot of twists and turns and ended up looking compeltely different to how it started. I think what I'll do is tag in APPLE01DOJ because he comments on A LOT of black modern decks and really knows how to build different archetypes, whereas I focus only on modern black discard.
I kind of like Grisels as a 1-of, just in case kind of thing. You never know.
The best curve topper for black aggro is Phyrexian Obliterator (assuming money is no problem). It's a horror, not a demon.
However - Desecration Demon will be effective against MOST deck archetypes but fall to aggro that bombards you with creatures. I would swap the Abyssals for it and have 4 of them. Maybe 3.
Maybe like 3x Desecration Demon .
