Hey, a friend and I are working on a modern Deathtouch deck and this was a huge help for ideas. I'all keep you updated if you want on how our progress is going. Awesome deck man, it has great synergy.

PickleNutz, please do update as I would like to know how other versions of the deck perform. Thanks for the upvote!

This is what we have so far, the comments here and some of the structure of your deck helped with a few of the mechanics. It's super cheap in both terms of mana cost and the cards monetary cost.

Upvoted! I always love your decks dude. I based my R/B Vamps off of one of your builds earlier this year. Coincidentaly I started a B/G myself since Amonkhet came out. I would love some of your feedback on it. Gods, Zombies, Counters, and Tokens

kilthias, thanks for the upvote and for the compliment! A revision to this deck is coming very soon. I have finally had a chance to play test a bit more and I think I have a slightly better build for it by making a couple of small adjustments.

Rabid Bite I feel was the perfect addition to this build. If you get a guy that just won't swing at you, then you force the issue and take his guy instead.
Also have you given any thought as too adding Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons? Her deathtouch snakes could be helpfull.
also, I find I get countered quite a bit. So I thought I might try Prowling Serpopard for a bit of protection. I took out the 2 Gonties to add them. Your thoughts on this move?
I can't wait to get my hands on Rhonas the Indomitable. He should be huge in this build, if you can get the 4/4 out. Personally I'm looking at Adding Lupine Prototype for this reason. True he isn't a part of this build, but he will set Rhonas free. And for a 2 drop I'm ok with it.

I just thought of this move, and it could be huge!How about adding 2 Odric, Lunarch Marshal. Then every creature will have first strike, deathtouch, indestructible, lifelink, and what ever else is on the field at the time. Adding 2 white mana wouldnt be that big a deal and Evolving Wilds is already there to pull them if needed.

Wolfees, thanks for the suggestions! I have looked at Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and that is in the maybe board. At this point, I'm unsure. It's a good card, but I don't yet know how it might fit. I'm tinkering with it for now.
I haven't yet had the problem of my creatures being countered, but I also haven't competitively played the deck since early March. It's possible the meta has shifted at my local store, particularly with the release of Amonkhet. That's for the heads-up as I will be watching more carefully for that. For you, though, if you're running across that, that's a viable option, as well as maybe Warping Wail in the sideboard to counter their spells back at them (which would require getting a few colorless mana into the deck).
I'm looking forward to tinkering with Rhonas the Indomitable. I don't think it will be too difficult to activate him. Between his boost ability, Blossoming Defense, and Larger Than Life (and Clear Shot gives a small boost!) I'm hoping he'll be activated enough.
I'm not going to try to splash white. That seems way too complicated. I have built decks around Odric and the first strike/deathtouch combo, and they're pretty effective. The problem is that opponents learn this very quickly and eliminate Odric quickly. However, it's been a while since he's been around in decks, so you might be able to catch people off guard. Feel free to splash and see if it works-- I' be interested to know!
Thanks again for the suggestions!

Chris3778, that is a very interesting card. Thanks for pointing it out as I had not yet noticed that one! I saw the CMC and glossed by it without even reading it. Thanks!

Holy crap-- for Bone Picker it doesn't even look like it has to be one of my own creatures that died!! It could be an opponent's creature that dies. That card is getting better and better the more I look at it!

I've been running this deck with a couple Nissa, Vital Force and she has provided some nice pressure as well as activating Rhonas. Love this deck!

Pretty killer deck, I saw you post on another page with a death touch deck and I'm glad to see a higher budget version right here. +1!! When all my Zendikar stuff dies out, I'm gonna go this route.

I hava had a lot of fun and some serious frustrating times with this build. To the point I scrapped it for a while. I revisited it about a month ago, and made some changes to my deck. Been playing it at my LGS FNM, saturday night casual tournaments with great success. So the major changes I made are; I added 4 Walking Balistas (hugely powerfull, and multi purpose card), in place of Drana, liberator. Perfect opening hand is to sacrafice a Balista, and drop a bone picker for 1, swinging for 3 on turn 2. Next I added 2 Winding Constrictors in place of Gonti, and I added 2 Rishkar Peema Renegades as well.
With these changes, I have placed 1st 2 times, and in the top 3 the rest of the time. Majorly fun build to play

keller44, I got busy and then moved to another couple of decks. With the release of Hour of Devastation, I am looking at revisiting the deck to see how it might perform in the new meta. I'll be certain to post any results that I may have.
Wolfees, sounds like an interesting variation on the theme. Thanks for the suggestions and as I get back to again tinkering with this deck I'll certainly keep those changes in mind!

Just for fun one night I added 4 verderous gearhulks to the build. Fist game I player I had 12 1/1 counters on a gifted aetherborne. I know crazy! But super strong and really fun to play.
Best part about this build, I don't have to think when playing it. Only thing I have to remember is to add to my life counter. It's a great build for a youngster that has trouble staying focused.
