Building

I've got most of the deck aside from the Bloodghast playset. I'll be testing it out in the next week or two in some local modern tournaments. Thanks a ton for the upvotes and helping the deck make it to the top page! It's very appreciated.

So I think that this deck actually has a lot of potential, but I think it may be trying to do too many things. I would try to drop some things for a set of lightning bolt. It would be great in this type of deck to remove blockers or finish the opponent. Corrupt for one is was away too slow in a DS deck, so drop that. Kiln fiend is cool, but once again it's getting a little off track. Also apostles blessing is more of a sideboard card, as its kind of useless in some matchups.

Hey jamesfiek, thanks a ton for the comment. Often times when I create a deck, it starts to do too many things without my realization. I'm going to make some adjustments to try and smooth out the deck's purpose. The bolts are a great idea and I can definitely take a few things out for them. (I should have seen that before, haha)

What do you think of going mardu and splashing white for Orzhov Charm? Literally all the modes are beneficial for a deaths shadow deck. You can return a creature with cmc 1 to the battlefield or you can kill a creature and lose life for it to pump your deaths shadow. Just a thought that came to mind!

Hey Exiled_soul, thanks for the suggestion!

That could certainly be a great addition to the deck and fortifies the main strategy. I'll have to play with the mana base and see what other white cards I could run.

Look up modern rakdos w/claim on youtube. The guy has a pretty similar build and it wins a lot of the time. I have been working on something similar but I splash white for Lightning Helix and Orzhov Charm

My fault another user suggested the charm. Another good reason to splash white is Wear / Tear for sideboard.

Hey Hyperalgialysis, thanks for taking the time to comment! I'll definitely check out that video on youtube. The splashing for white is very tempting. I'm stubborn with trying to make original ideas work, but with all the versatility in modern it seems silly to limit the deck.
