Destroy target non-Vampire, non-Werewolf, non-Zombie creature.
Victim of Night Discussion
12 hours ago
To begin with, this is probably the most creative deck I have ever seen. That being said, I playtested it and see some minor problems. I will cover all of the problems I see with it, then cover all of the solutions. I really like the concept of this deck, and I want to see it work in an actual game. Problems: This deck isn't going to win from dealing damage, not even close. Therefore, Eidolon of the Great Revel really isn't going to anything what so ever. He is just 2/2 for , and serves no real purpose. The same goes for Dimir House Guard . Like, yes ok, he can regenerate, but there aren't many creatures here to sacrifice. Additionally, I played this deck several times, and not once did I see Vampiric Link be of any use. The most life per attack you can get with it is 2, and most likely your creature dies from it. I just think there could be better cards. Improvements:
During the beginning of the game, you are very vulnerable. You need some smaller creatures such as Typhoid Rats . They can be played turn one and can effectively block almost any creature. Replace Vampiric Link with these, it will help so, so much.
As I said above, Eidolon of the Great Revel is just wasting space, and if you wanted to keep the same converted mana cost, might I suggest Battlefield Scavenger (for cycling faster), Bloodrage Brawler (for an actual blocker), Figure of Destiny , or many more, just not Eidolon.
Dimir could go either way, especially if you make these other changes, so you can sacrifice creatures easier.
Again, overall I love this concept and want to see this work. Please consider the above, and thanks!

the deck is fine. Smallpox works against devotion strategy so that's a no go with our deck. Fatal Push is good but if price is an issue Victim of Night is great. Cast Down is nice as well. Liliana of the Veil is cool I run her in my deck but she can be meta dependent regardless of what people say. sometimes i'd rather drop a creature or do something else so I side her out. Thoughtseize is nice but Duress is fine and Inquisition of Kozilek is cheap now so you could add those instead. id move 2x Geth's Verdict to the side for emrakul or hexproof creature decks. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is ok but sometimes you draw it and it sucks. you're better off running just one. if you're not running x spells or drawing a ton of creature cards that you want to empty from your hand it's pointless to run more than one. I will say a 1x Bojuka Bog can come in clutch especially in the game one against dredge or izzet phoenix. I'm not saying the previous suggestions are bad or wrong, this is just my experience playing with my version of devotion in my meta. also, 1x Ratchet Bomb , 2x Pithing Needle 2x Relic of Progenitus in your side plus 2x Geth's Verdict . maybe 2x Drown in Sorrow 1x Whip of Erebos 2x Damping Sphere then whatever else your meta dictates? Mind you, those are just suggestions. put what you like and have fun! +1

You have several sub optimal card choices; Succumb to Temptation rather than Night's Whisper , Murder rather than Dismember , Victim of Night or the already mentioned Fatal Push which is premium removal.
There is a certain appeal to the Morbid keyword for this deck, be it Tragic Slip , Morkrut Banshee or Reaper from the Abyss as a backup plan. Speaking of a backup plan to the combo, maybe; Myr Superion or Lupine Prototype could work. I'd also want a board wipe like Bontu's Last Reckoning , Damnation , Languish or Ritual of Soot to clear away fast aggro or token strategies. Hope this is of help, good luck brewing your deck.

you can drop the mill entirely and add some other form of cotrol. take out Revolutionary Rebuff and Cancel for Mana Leak or Remand , Terror and Murder for Doom Blade , Cast Down or Fatal Push if it's on budget.
whats your wincon? or just beat down with Wanted Scoundrels and such...

I like the list alot, my biggest worry would be that you are lacking in removal for your opponents threats and things that can severely prevent you from winning the game. For instance if your opponent drops something silly like Phyrexian Unlife you literally have no way of removing it. Since black and white both have amazing removal, you probably want to consider these modern staples\tech cards:

Zombie Tribal decks are definitely one of my favorite types of decks.
Victim of Night could be a fun removal spell. It just fits so well with the flavor of the deck!

Also you are missing the devotion land! Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
