I think Grim Flayer would be really good here, cool deck!

Thanks skoobysnackz! Grim Flayer is perfect for this deck. I love Lotleth Troll but for the same mana cost Grim Flayer will provide a lot more control. I haven't played MTG since Modern Masters 2013 so I have a lot of cards to look through if I'm going to start working on decks again. Thanks again for the card suggestion! I'll definitely work it into the deck.

Your build seems pretty mama intensive. You might want to consider Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Gyre Sage, Satyr Wayfinder, and/or Slitherhead. Running any of these should allow you to cut some lands so you have fewer dead draws.

Force of Savagery is my favorite "combo" with varolz outside of shadow, could be worth a look.

Also, maybe a few mana dorks to speed things up, this thing wants to go off pretty fast. Uktabi Drake is one of the few one drops in green plus it has flying, great target for counters if you want to go off in a single turn or if you can afford the echo cost.

Hi. Not sure if you'd want to go this direction, but Tainted Strike might make for an interesting addition.

Cool idea, but I think you go too far on the counters. At some point it treads into win-more territory and out of being well-rounded. You need more interaction in modern. Drop Bioshift for Fatal Push, and even your whole sorcery package for Abrupt Decay and Maelstrom Pulse. I see what you're going for with Jarad's Orders, but a 4 cmc "do nothing the turn you play it" is too slow for modern, so is Corpsejack Menace unfortunately. Frankly, the difference between 13 and 26 counters on beatstick is irrelevant. I'd run Satyr Wayfinder so that you're more likely to have fuel to scavenge, and/or Grisly Salvage.

you should replace your Tormented Souls with Silhana Ledgewalkers it's a much better target. A hexproof flyer is tough to deal with. It may even remove your need for Bioshift and free up 3 spaces in your deck.

i would switch nighthawk for a Vengevine. Take a look at my RBG vengevine deck which is fairly similar to yours. perhaps look at Relentless Dead.I wouldnt switch Lotleth Troll for Grim Flayer as lotleth has alot of utility and can even ensure flayers delirium comes online.

I think this deck is great! Also it could be super budget if you just replace Death's Shadow with Force of Savagery, and your dual lands with cheaper ones like Llanowar Wastes and Temple of Malady. You should make that deck and link it to this one!

I agree with several previous comments -- out with Bioshift, Corpsejack, Jarad's orders, treasured find, vines of vastwood. They're "win more" conditions, where you've already won by the time you get the combo online -- instead, dedicate those slots to cards that help you win games you might not otherwise win. I would, however, keep in Lotleth Troll, contrary to some above suggestions.
I would put in Abrupt Decay, Fatal Push, Force of Savagery, maybe even Lupine Prototype or Pharika, God of Affliction (in SB for reanimator matchups). Blossoming Defense or Destined/Lead should be easy defense for your beaters instead. Finally, Momentous Fall for card draw if you need it. Hope that helps!

This deck needs ramp. Your 3- and 4-drop creatures are crucial to the deck's strategy, but a lot of decks will just kill you before you can get the strategy going. Adding 4x Birds of Paradise would do wonders for speeding up your clock as well as mana-fixing, and you only have 4 cards in the deck that are viable Turn 1 plays right now. Not to mention they're flying and consequently synergize well with Bioshift in late game.
Grisly Salvage would be really strong in this deck. I would run it at least as a 3-of. Cantrip tutoring the creature or land that you need (at instant speed no less) while also filling up your graveyard is exactly what this deck wants to be doing.
Good luck with it and happy brewing. +1

i like this deck its not, just another goyf deck and looks like it could ramp out more counters than a hardened scales deck, i might actually have to test this one see how it goes :D
April 30, 2017 12:09 a.m.
you should consider running some sort of infect, the name of the spell escapes me but its a one drop +1/0 and you could easily win the game on turn three or four via it
May 4, 2017 8:35 p.m.
and If you wouldnt mind, I would like to maybe make a budget version of this deck with a few of my own ideas?
May 4, 2017 8:38 p.m.
Any massive +1/+1 counter deck needs to consider running Hindervines. Just saying :)
May 12, 2017 10:29 p.m.
Change out your skylasher for a Miscutter Hydra, still pro plue, cant be countered and has haste. plus yu can play for how much you want than scanvenge more onto it
July 2, 2017 6:01 p.m.
what about Kin-Tree Invocation to get a 13/13 or 26/26 from death's shadow?

Tormented Soul is not even a little bit better than Silhana Ledgewalker because all the main removal cards in modern can get rid of it. Claim//Fame's home is in a grixis Death's Shadow deck where it can be used to its fullest potential. That's my opinion:)
July 14, 2017 10 p.m.
wrong link, here's the right one: Claim / Fame
Also, I this deck you want Death's Shadow in the graveyard so you can scavenge him.
July 14, 2017 10:21 p.m.
I run a deck with some similarities take a look for some ideas Gnawing on Death
August 16, 2017 9:18 p.m.
just gave you like #100. Congrats! Really cool deck!
August 31, 2017 8:54 p.m.
Just play death's shadow. It is far better. The cost of this deck does not at all reflect it's level of play and competitiveness.
