since you are not a fan of Go for the Throat how about Victim of Night?

anooshapalooza on I'm here to kill those damn "Rhinos"...

I have been testing it a bit and most of the time it definitely sits in hand until I have a menacing board presence. I gravitated towards it because it didn't care about Blood Moon.

I'll be joining a small modern event at my LGS and am considering running back to the previous Victim of Night.

I used to have Dismember took them out for Victim of Night but maybe they could switch back, but I was trying to preserve life. Aiming to play better against agro. And I just really like command in this deck, but ill try your split.

Wild Slash instead of Shock if you are gonna run that card. (Not really recommended) Maybe try Shard Volley since you are aggro?Bloodstained Mire instead of Rakdos Guildgate.Blood Crypt instead of Bloodfell Caves. Lightning Bolt instead of Lightning Strike.Sideboard Leyline of Punishment.Sideboard Blood Moon vs decks like bloom titan.Maybe even Victim of Night or Hero's Downfall.Possibly even Slaughter Games against slow games of bloom titan or Splinter Twin decks.Of course most of my suggestions aren't really budget friendly. But hey this is modern so it's face paced. :P :)

3 copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Victim of Night instead of Doom Blade, Murder is ok, but Raven's Crime and Inquisition of Kozilek are nicer for hand removal (kill planeswalkers etc before they even exist).

some would say Thoughtseize but that is expensive. Dismember is fantastic removal. Underworld Connections is a cheaper card advantage than Phyrexian Arena, and I would run 3 or 4. Gotta draw dem cards!

Your creature base is.....interesting.

Gatekeeper of Malakir is a fantastic creature/removal. Geralf's Messenger is great as he recurs after they remove him. Vampire Hexmage is a decent 2 drop that can also kill planeswalkers/hydras.

Necropolis Regent and Mogis's Marauder combo pretty nicely to make big creatures, but you would need to survive to get her out, THEN drop Mogis's to launch everything.

The best devotion creature is by far Gray Merchant of Asphodel the others fall short by quite a bit. I know you want loads of devotion but sometimes you just have to pick the biggest horse and ride it.

Typhoid Rats is a nice turn one drop, and Pack Rat goes very well with devotion deck as the copies also provide devotion.

Here is a deck I found some great inspiration from for mono black devotion Caligula

and here is my more budget approach to the same concept casual devotion

ChiefBell on does this RUB you the wrong way?

Electrolyze in the current meta? Surely can't be performing that well. What do you think? Like 2 damage is barely enough to kill anything. I suppose it gets Pestermite and Scavenging Ooze but I can't think of much else. For 3 mana it seems risky to have 3 copies when I can't see it being that great at the moment.

I also feel that Lightning Bolt has lost some value. In a slow deck that doesn't need to burn the opponent, and just wants straight up removal I wouldn't value it over.... Victim of Night or Dismember etc. Like, I don't think it's that good in the meta against creatures and I don't think this deck needs to burn the opponent. Therefore I don't see it as a 4-of.

I don't think Jace is worth it even if he does stop Lingering Souls. You don't want to tap out 4 mana just for that. I'd much rather see a singleton Keranos due to him helping you to draw cards and the fact that he's indestructible and then another Mana Leak or something. You're unlikely to die to Lingering Souls. It's not that bad.

I'm unsure about this. I feel like the deck is sort of 80% there and it just needs a few cuts here and there to improve.

WicKid52 on mono black pauper!

have you even glimpsed at Mono-black in pauper? Crypt Rats, Chittering Rats, Ravenous Rats, Geth's Verdict all have place in here above every creature other than Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Contaminated Ground should be Rancid Earth, Doom Blade should be Victim of Night. In your sideboard, Cremate should either be Bojuka Bog or Relic of Progenitus. Debilitating Injury is ALWAYS worse that Dead Weight. Quag Sickness should be Echoing Decay or some other such card. Nighthaze is just terrible. also, Phyrexian Rager is very, very good. That's all.

@ Tata: I have to agree with instant speed removal. I'll have to place more in there. I am thinking Smother, Terminate, Magmaquake and Dismember are pretty good, though. I could add Victim of Night and Murder, though. I agree with Bonfire of the Damned, I just happen to not have any! It happens. All the decks that i list are cards that I actually own. Otherwise, why list them? Toxic Deluge is pretty good, but you take damage for it. I already have Black Sun's Zenith on the SB, but I could add a deluge there too for creature-spew decks. I think lightning bolt is a pretty good targeted removal, but incinerate is better (exile). I was also thinking of Pillar of Flame, but I don't know what to take out for it. Sorry for the delay on the response, I didn't realize that this comment was here. Thanks for looking!
