This deck started out a a fun idea, because I really liked Flayer of the Hatebound. When I realized how well flayer works with Unburial Rights I knew I could make an awesome deck that was actually competitive. I also really like Vexing Devil and wanted to include that card as well. Vexing Devil works great with Flayer, Sun Titan, and Nearheath Pilgrim . This deck aims for some early damage with vexing devils and stalls with lingering souls and lifelink. Then hopefully by turn 4-7 you are able to get a bomb on the battlefield.

Main problems this deck faces are against graveyard hate. But must people underestimate Flayer of the Hatebound, so try to use that to your advantage.


Updates Add

I made sure my sideboard was more effective against decks like Delver and Infect. I my last tourney, I struggled to stop those decks. I basically added graveyard hate, Ghost Quarters to stop Inkmoth and Moorland Haunt, and also Porcelain Legionnaire and whipflare to stop aggro.

I added 3x Nearheath Pilgrim because I found I needed a way to sustain in case I didn't get early draws. Nearheath Pilgrim combined with both Vexing Devil and Archwing Dragon allow for 4 damage and 4 life gain swings, even if Vexing Devil is sacrificed.
