I wouldn't call it strictly better as it can't function as removal for your opponent's creatures. But it is definitely awesome, and I forgot it existed or I would have included it. I'm gonna sub it in! Thanks!

Yeah sorry, I misspoke when saying 'strictly better' but I was thinking in terms of this deck as for how it functions.
May 9, 2015 11:43 p.m.
Yeah for what this deck wants to do, it's definitely better.

Ever thought about using Desecration Demon instead now that his price had dropped.
May 10, 2015 1:53 p.m.
Went ahead and added Vault Skirge. I agree, he brings more to the table here.
May 10, 2015 3:22 p.m.
ManicMayhem, I have. I just greatly prefer the Persecutor's evasion and the fact that he can't be tapped out by tokens.
May 10, 2015 3:25 p.m.
I would like to see grafted exoskeleton come in for predators gambit. Grafted exoskeleton allows not only for a sack outlet, but also for infect damage to be pushed through.
May 10, 2015 4:45 p.m.
May 10, 2015 4:47 p.m.
That's because this is Grafted Wargear. And it is good because it helps kill the Persecutor.
May 10, 2015 5:32 p.m.
Oh whoops my bad! I didn't see his response. Sorry dude! You're right.
May 10, 2015 6:16 p.m.
No I'm only a fan of infect when the deck is built around it. If it's just thrown in, half the time it's wasted.
May 10, 2015 6:53 p.m.
ok, fine... geth's verdict then? target yourself? =P
May 10, 2015 8:09 p.m.
I'd go with the rite. As best I can tell, it's here as a fling effect for Abyssal Persecutor. Verdict isn't bad for a sideboard card though; if you find yourself needing to be the control deck, swapping it for Predator's Gambit could be a great move.
May 10, 2015 8:29 p.m.
I'd say swapping in Geth's Verdict for Predator's Gambit in mainboard is a good strategic move overall.
May 11, 2015 3:50 p.m.
I can see Geth's Verdict working in the right meta. For my local playgroup, there's enough tokens and mana dorks to make it largely useless offensively. And I think there's enough outlets to dump the Persecutor as is. But if your group doesn't run a lot of weenies, tokens, or dorks, go for it!

These decks are really good! Don't stop making them. In fact, Would you consider a more expensive version of one of these decks? Thanks, +1 from me!
May 12, 2015 10:02 a.m.
I could do a more expensive version, but to be honest, it wouldn't be anything you haven't already seen. When budget isn't an issue anymore, then you just go with the best cards. So my black decks would be full of Thoughtsieze and Inquisition of Kozilek, and probably Wurmcoil Engine. Red would have Lightning Bolts and dragons and Goblin Rabblemaster and Goblin Guide. The Jedi deck would just become a Brimaz, King of Oreskos token deck with Path to Exile. And they'd all have planeswalkers sprinkled in. The reason these decks are so cool is that the budget constraint allows me to do things that you'd never do in a competitive deck.

Really cool deck, very fun and inexpensive, and it would be really fun to buy and then improve upon as you find more cool cards to trade for, definitely a +1.
The ONLY thing I would change would be swapping out all 4 Abyssal Persecutors for 4 Desecration Demons, the only problem with the persecutors is that they are going to be a little tricky to get rid of in this deck...
I'd personally go with the Desecration Demons, Bloodgift Demons, or Archfiend of Depravitys, or you can put 2 different demon creatures in and only put 2 of each in your deck. In anycase, I only prefer Abyssal Persecutor in certain circumstances such as sacrificing him in commander games to recieve a reward for his power of toughness, such as with Ghoulcaller Gisa.
Again, great deck, just my two cents.
May 14, 2015 10:03 p.m.
The reason I've never liked Desecration Demon is that your opponent can stall him until they have an answer for him.
I tried adding the Archfiend of Depravity because I've always liked that card. The problem was, there's too much other stuff you want to do with your mana on the turn he's supposed to come down. So really, he just gets in the way.
Thanks for the suggestions though!
May 15, 2015 12:19 p.m.
After some playtesting, I subbed Gurmag Swiftwing in at the 2 drop slot for Vampire Hexmage. He speeds things up and makes it so your whole field flies aside from Lashwrithe which should be equipped to your Vampire Nighthawk anyway.
May 15, 2015 12:44 p.m.
I might have to just impulse buy this right now. Great deck +1
May 15, 2015 2:07 p.m.
wow. That's sick. i really do think i have to buy this though. nice build
May 15, 2015 2:32 p.m.
The deck still functions well with her in there. I've just found more success with the bat.
May 16, 2015 10:03 a.m.
i really dig this deck. i just might have to try it
+1 for sure
May 16, 2015 10:26 a.m.
At the one drop, May I suggest Vampire Bats, will-o-the-wisp, or tormented soul?
May 16, 2015 5:29 p.m.
You may. But slap Lashwrithe on the Skirge on turn 4 and heal for 5 and you might change your mind.
May 16, 2015 9:49 p.m.
I needed a cheap decent deck so I had a companion for my blue affinity in case somebody wanted to play modern but didn't own a deck.
I just purchased this deck for 20$ between an ebay trollandtoad cart and a coolstuffinc cart. Thank you very much for sharing sir.

May 17, 2015 11:19 p.m.
You could buy this whole deck 5 times for the cost of a playset of Obliteraters. So that's definitely out. As for the Master, eh he's ok. I'd still take the Nighthawk over him at the 3 slot.
May 17, 2015 11:33 p.m.
cyberdisc I'm glad you like it. Let me know how it goes once you start playing it!
May 17, 2015 11:34 p.m.
Love this deck, good starter deck, played some proxy's before I bought it, and it is amazing, would adding Liliana Vess planeswalker be a good addition to this deck? I only ask because I picked one up the other day when I traded a few uncommons for her.
May 19, 2015 2:52 p.m.
It couldn't hurt if you already have it. She's super strong.
May 19, 2015 2:57 p.m.
Needle Specter and Herald of Torment deserve some consideration, if you're willing to cut back on a couple of lands or remove Predator's Gambit. Since the curve out is at the 4 cmc spot, and the average CMC is 2.44, you could feasibly get rid of Predator's Gambit in favor for either of these 2 creatures.
May 19, 2015 6:02 p.m.
just realized that sanguine blood would just add insult to injury in this deck, so much life link would deal double damage
May 20, 2015 1:38 p.m.
It certainly would, though it would require some ramp (which sadly this deck doesn't have) to make it effective.
May 20, 2015 1:40 p.m.
The final demon slot is sort of open for interpretation. Archfiend of Depravity has been suggested as well.
May 21, 2015 10:01 a.m.
This is an aggro deck and you need to sacrifice creatures too so it kind of disadvantages you sometimes more than the opponent
May 21, 2015 10:04 a.m.
Read through this one a week ago and couldn't resist, bought all the cards on TCG and they all just arrived. Cannot wait to take this one for a test drive. Tragic slip is the cherry on top for me, so looking forward to dropping those.
May 23, 2015 10:39 a.m.
It's a very fun deck to play and quite a bit stronger than it lets on. Flinging a creature late game with Rite of Consumption while Lashwrithe is attached is brutal. The double combo of attacking, dealing combat damage, then Flinging for the win is super satisfying.

Used this in my first FNM casual tournament last night and went 2 and 2, and the matches I lost I gave them a run for their money. It was awesome, one of the decks I went against used a platinum angel and one more turn and I would of destroyed it! Still really fun though.
June 6, 2015 1:40 p.m.
That's amazing, congrats! 2 and 2 for $20 is hard to beat! I bet some of those guys didn't expect that kind of result from such a cheap deck. Glad you saw some success with it! If you build upon it at all and improve it, let me know how it goes then too!
June 6, 2015 4:36 p.m.
really like your deck builds and this is one of my favorites.bought all the cards just have to wait for them to arrive.really excited to use this in casual play.
June 19, 2015 1:11 a.m.
just built this, my EDH group is getting into modern so i thought i would dip my toes in. seems really fun, thanks for the decklist!
July 2, 2015 11:59 a.m.
Enjoy! It's effective enough for how cheap it is. If your group doesn't all invest in T1/T2 decks right away, this will hang with them for quite some time. Check out the rest of my ultra-budget decks for that level of play if you want to mix it up.
July 2, 2015 12:28 p.m.
Got these cards in yesterday. Very fun. Thank you!
August 25, 2015 7:38 a.m.
Would you say this deck is more or less competitive than your Witch King deck?
November 14, 2015 4:33 p.m.
Bone Splinters would help you with removal, also, even though, arguably, it is sorcery speed it will help you sac your Abyssal Persecutor after his time on the battlefield is finished.
December 22, 2015 3:42 p.m.
I was thinking that Wargear could be replaced with Nightmare Lash but then I saw Persecutor haha love the deck
January 26, 2016 7:56 p.m.
I bought this deck also. it's really fun :) I copied it for myself but i left shout-out to you!

Is there a way to make an upgraded version maybe with splashing blue? I think its a solid deck but lacks evasion somehow. I want to get into competetive gaming with it.
January 4, 2017 3:13 a.m.
I played a version of this for awhile (with IoKs that I had in my collection) and it was super fun and I beat a lot of decks that I had no business beating. Great fun while I was building up something a little more competitive.
January 18, 2017 8:11 p.m.
Man, I can't believe these decks are still getting traction! Thanks for the kind words mccarthyism.
Apologies everyone for going dark for so long. All of my decks were in a single bag and it was stolen... So that kind of knocked the wind out of me. But I'm super glad that everyone has been enjoying my builds. They were simple and goofy and just meant for a good time. So it's awesome that they accomplished that!
January 25, 2017 1:30 p.m.
That kinda sucks sorry man.Just keep it up and buy some new cards. ;)

Love this deck, bought it a few weeks ago and have enjoyed beating much more expensive decks with it. Thanks for sharing it.
February 25, 2017 11:45 p.m.
http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/are-you-afraid-of-the-dark-revision/ what do you think about my twist on your deck? same flavor, but i think this might work better.
February 26, 2017 9:34 p.m.
Dangerwillrobinson79 I do really like the Gifted Aetherborn swap. The original concept of the deck was to have every single creature be a flyer to maintain evasion at every point of the curve to maximize the impact of the equipment. Tormented Soul is an exception, as his unblockability allows him to carry your equipment straight through enemy lines unhindered. I still think evasion is important, but Aetherborn is so good, he would definitely be worth the swap if you wanted. I would probably swap him in for the Tormented Soul if I wanted to make the deck slightly more defensive, maybe against another aggro or stompy deck, where having an extra blocker with deathtouch would make a bigger impact than an unblockable that can't block.
Also, unrelated to that suggestion, just a general note: since swapping in Geth's Verdict and changing Doomblade to Go for the Throat, this deck plays a much stronger midrange game and can hold up against more deliberate tempo/control-y decks (unless they're creatureless, then you just need to go aggro and pray for a good curve). So, in those situations, don't be afraid to save mana for your control cards instead of throwing down more creatures and equipment. Gurmag Swiftwing can wait to get his Grafted Wargear next turn!
