Thanks for the suggestion. It's kind of expensive though.Thanks for the +1! _

I have a similar deck: Dorglaugoth i would swap the Necrotic slivers out for Skinrender and i would also take out the blind hunters for something that's a little better. Other than that it looks like a decent deck,

Dorglaugoth thanks for your input but there's no way I would take out the slivers. In conjunction w/ Cauldron Haze I can easily take out 2 permanents and not just creatures, mind. That's not even taking into account the possible triggers on Deathbringer Liege .As I said in the description, I would trade the Divinity of Pride for another Deathbringer but that's about it.

Now it's time for me to return the favor! I'm really not sure why you are running 4 Necrotic Sliver . I understand that the four slivers can be sacrificed, but don't you think that would run better in a sliver deck? I would substitute the slivers for either High Priest of Penance or Royal Assassin . Also, you may consider throwing in a Visara the Dreadful just in case you want to control the battlefield a little. Hope that this helps!
Also, Deathbringer Liege is a friggin amazing card.

echo9999 I have a pretty extensive explanation for why everything is in here. Necrotic Sliver lets me kill anything, including lands and coupled w/ Cauldron Haze I can use it twice. Everything in here (except Death Wind which can kill regeneraters and indesctructible creatures on it's own) is black and white so it all triggers the Deathbringer Liege . Visara is good but it would slow this deck down and control is not really an issue w/ this deck.
Thanks for the input!

The only thing I can think of is Cauldron of Souls , maybe put one in. If you think your mana can support it a five drop. You play the Deathbringer Liege a little differently than I do. I like to use morbid and extort with mine, where as you have more life gain.
Its a nice deck, +1 for being thematic

I kind of feel like you have way more removal than necessary, with this deck, you're probably going to have dead cards because all their creatures will already be dead. I'd recommend taking out the slivers and the Death winds for Path to Exile and Tidehollow Sculler and maybe more land.
January 21, 2014 11:55 a.m.
@Dorglaugoth I think 8 total removal spells is anything but too many. If I end up w/ one or two just sitting in my hand late game, then I know I'm probably gonna win, provided I've got board presence and doing damage. I have only 3 cards that have a cmc that's more than 3 (all 5) so mana isn't an issue.
Thanks for the comment!

Why not play 4 Deathbringer Liege ?Cool deck , i begin do play modern and it seem really fun
January 22, 2014 11:21 p.m.
@BLVCKMVGIC Just b/c of how expensive it is money wise. I was fortunate enough to pull two from packs and I did in fact order the 3rd one. Maybe at some point I'll shell out for a 4th but it's just not happening right now.
Thanks for commenting!

If you want to add the most versatile removal spell ever printed Vindicate is nice. Obviously that ticks up the price but I personally play a LOT of cockatrice.
January 28, 2014 2:32 a.m.
@GoalkariMasterDebater Waaaay out of my price range but an awesome card.
January 28, 2014 3 a.m.
What if instead of Vindicate you try Hero's Downfall or possibly Doom Blade ? Although admittedly the latter is a sideboard card.. but both are still great to add in, replacing Mortify +1 from me, this deck rocks!
February 5, 2014 1:15 p.m.
@Asher18 Thanks for the comment and the +1.Hero's Downfall does have the planeswalker removal going for it but Mortify can take out enchantments and has better synergy w/ Deathbringer Liege and Nightsky Mimic . Do appreciate the input!

Drop orzhov basillica leaves you too vulnerable to wasteland effects
February 21, 2014 2:52 p.m.
@Stevodays I don't think that's prevalent enough (in my experience, anyway) to warrant concern.
Thanks for the input!

First off, nice deck. I would recommend running Go for the Throat instead of Death Wind , as it would be able to take out a large amount of modern staples for a relatively low mana cost. While I understand that it does not handle indestructibles, that does not seem as much of a common dilemma. I would also recommend Tithe Drinker over the Nip Gwyllion and raising the Edge of the Divinity to a four-of. I'm not sure why you included Cauldron Haze , seeing as the majority of your creatures would perish with the -1/-1 counter. Necrotic Sliver really isn't strong enough an argument for their inclusion. Vault of the Archangel would fit nicely in here.Caves of Koilos would definitely help with mana fixing for this multicolored deck, and is cheap enough online if your building on a budget. Also, seeing as all your cards are modern playable, why don't you make the deck modern? All in all, nice deck and good luck in your endeavors.
February 23, 2014 12:55 p.m.
OmniscientPotato Hi! Thanks for all your input. Go for the Throat is not too expensive but there are other cards I'd prefer to be buying at this stage of the game. It is an awesome Terror variant, though, for sure. The Tithe Drinker is probably a good suggestion, as well as the lands you threw out there. Cauldron Haze has a pretty thorough explanation in my description, so I'm not going over it here. I'll just say that it has done me a great service w/ this deck. All in all, good input. Thanks!
February 23, 2014 1:36 p.m.
Alright, if you're going to be sticking with the cauldron haze, just try to throw in more 2+ toughness creatures. A good one would be Souls of the Faultless .
February 23, 2014 1:43 p.m.
OmniscientPotato Yeah, I got those in another deck based around making your opponent sit there, not being able to attack and slowly bleeding out. Used to have the Souls in the original build of this deck but split it up amongst it's defensive and aggro elements.

Asher18 I don't think that card would be a particularly good fit. Sin Collector pretty much blows it's load right out of the gate and then it's just a 2/1 vanilla creature. If I was gonna go that route I would much prefer Castigate as it's not just limited to instants and sorceries. Necrotic Sliver helps me w/ board control which is more in tune w/ how the deck operates.
February 23, 2014 3:43 p.m.
First, you have Fetid Heath which makes be very jealous.I'd suggest removing Blind Hunter because it exiles when you haunt with it- and you seem to be going for persist. Perhaps try sticking in Vampire Nighthawk - since you seem to be going for removal and life gain, it fits both nicely. Granted, it doesn't pop both of Deathbringer Liege 's abilities, but I'd say it works more consistently. Second, I'd stick in Vault of the Archangel into the regular decj. Since your deck doesn't rely on having one particular kind of mana or require lots of colored mana and has some good mana fixing, it would make a great addition.Also, have you considered Vizkopa Guildmage ? It pops both of DL's abilties and best of all it gives you some great choices for activated abilities. With WB decks, I've noticed it's a great idea to balance life gain, life burn, and removal. A good strategy is to remove the opponent's big creatures, lower their life total, and force them to chump block and lose even more creature to avoid being killed by your big creatures. That said, your deck is good and I like it a lot. Keep it up!

Jotun957 Thanks for checking out the deck and for all the input. Using Cauldron Haze will give me an extra trigger on the Blind Hunter and I'm trying to keep it as black and white as possible w/ this deck (at least in the permanents). Though, believe me, I have no lack of decks w/ Vampire Nighthawk in them. Vault of the Archangel is in the maybe list b/c I don't own any. If I had them, I would likely put it in either this deck or one of the other b/w decks I own. The Guildmage is something I'm gonna chew over for a bit b/c I definitely have some of them.
Again, many thanks!

@zerowner Thanks for the input. I bought Vindicate specifically to put in this deck so I have no intention of taking it out. There isn't a lot of modern play around me and I just mainly play with my friends who don't particularly care about set legalities. If for whatever reason I did decide to take this deck to a modern event (I have better ones, I think), I would definitely adjust accordingly.
