+4 Sylvan Caryatid for efficent wall against the small rakdos infamous unleashed, blood drunken zealots and a lot of berserking red creatures, and more u have mana advantage and no problem of mana color
i suggest -2 Mutavault u don't need it, u have too many double cost green or black (Desecration demon, polikranos, OOZE's ability at O'sEOT, Shaman's Ability at O'sEOT)
@ Ringhiop I'd rather have kill spells then blockers, and I don't really need mana fixing as I have not yet ran into trouble with mana. Thanks for the thoughts, though.
@ Apoptosis I've only used it once (Last FNM) and I went 3-1, losing only to an extremely fast mono-red deck. I had forgotten to put Doom Blade in my sideboard before FNM, so that probably costed me the game.
Id main putrify and side heroes downfall. The double black can be very costly if your tight on black mana. For example if you have 5 mana and only 2 of its black I'd rather be able to use both a petrify and a doom blade then get stuck with a heroes and a doom blade. Also don't cut therling he's a late game card so he shouldn't be a dead card in hand, plus once he's out he's extremely hard to get rid of. +1 for me, I think its a solid build.
1drops and 2 drops?
Kalonian Tusker is mana intensive but stymies the damage dealt by attackers, then there's the usual assortment of mana accelerants... the deck as a whole looks like a midrange-control deck with early pressure, I personally don't think early drops are that necessary if you can 1-for-1 them with doom-blades and catch up later with additional card advantage engines later on...
Though i'd improve the deck by increasing it's consistency first... midrange control would need something to keep it in the game, e.g. lifegain , being a control deck would imply you're less reliant on creatures to win the game... might i suggest Whip of Erebos ? There's lifegain and virtual card advantage there, also it has the same synergy with AEtherling that it has with Obzedat, Ghost Council .
I'd say more but it's 2am here...
