Woe Strider Discussion

Maybe you have not noticed but this is not really a tier deck of any kind...
If you have some usefull criticism for how to upgrade this deck with cards in these colours, please do that.. the deck was never ment to be able to reliably compete with tier one decks at all. If i ever go to a grand prix in standard, i will borrow somebody's tier one deck.
I only own a standard deck so that i can play standard without getting totally embarrased.
So in that regard, Woe Strider might not be the best card in standard.. but it comes back from the yard, gives a scry when something else dies, and provides an additional blocker..
Rotting Regisaur helpes get an early henge in play, witch is the best card in my deck by a landslide...
I do want to thank you for your response. It is beter than nothing.

How are you reliably getting card advantage in this deck? Card advantage is probably the biggest question in this meta, and even decks like mono-red have to make concessions to that with things like Light Up the Stage and Experimental Frenzy. You only really seem to be getting card disadvantage with Rotting Regisaur, and the occasional game with The Great Henge.
What is Woe Strider doing in this deck? I'm sure there's a good explanation, I just don't see it.

I feel like the moxes don’t really fit here too well. You need to have Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as must-run token planeswalkers. I would also seriously look into Vindictive Vampire, Woe Strider, and both of the Athreos gods.
Also, Giver of Runes seems out of place here. Is there really a point? Weathered Wayfarer is also a somewhat odd choice. You’re at 36 lands and are only in two colors - one being black. I don’t think you need this kind of land tutor (but that’s just me).
There are some other things I’d change (I used to run Teysa, Orzhov Scion for a very long time and enjoyed her before I switched to Teysa Karlov), but I don’t want to sound mean or anything like that. It’s a nice deck, but some of the choices give me the try-hards (like the moxes for example). But hey dude, if you dig it and it brings you joy, keep doing what you’re doing!

Some other on-flavor options to bring the curve down a bit are Wharf Infiltrator (also lets you ditch higher-costed cards you might not be able to use for value and recur with your Hell's Caretaker) and Plague Spitter. Woe Strider is a nice piece of recurrable value that helps you smooth your draws a bit.
Fleshwrither is a nice utility horror that lets you go search for pieces like Hell's Caretaker or Ravenous Chupacabra.
And while it may not be as budget, Phyrexian Revoker helps you answer some threats from across the board.

Azeworai Thanks for the recommendations.
Wait, Gary has 2 power? Well he's going in immediately.
I hadn't actually considered self mill, but I will experiment with it.
I've found that I often want a sac outlet on board, in case someone uses exile removal (or god forbid Merciless Eviction), but I will probably take out Blood Bairn in favor of the new Woe Strider from TBD.
I will have a look at my removal, but it's worked fine thus far.
You asked about how I add a card in several categories. It's quite simple, you just add several hashtags after the card like this:
1x Vindicate #Removal
1x Viscera Seer #2Power #SacOutlet
1x Yahenni, Undying Partisan #SacOutlet
1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician #2Power #Discard #Draw #SacOutlet
Thanks again for taking the time to look through my list, and have a great day yourself!
