frogkill45, I'm not sure how competitive your beatdown plan is without playtesting, but usually you don't drastically dilute a combo in order to play around one hate card. Dredge doesn't play a single card to play around RIP, so why should we? And we're actually better than Dredge against Grafdigger's Cage and one-shot grave hate, so it certainly seems fine to give up the 25% (average of game 2/3 that they draw it) of games vs. 17% of decks playing RIP. 25%*17% = 4%. We're only giving up 4% of games to drastically improve the deck in 96% of games!
The Thrun, Hazoret, Samut beatdown plan is cute, but let's evaluate how powerful the combo is with this change. With only 3 Samut and 4 Nighthawk, you're only going to assemble the combo half of games now. And your "combo" now usually only makes a 4/4 hexproof, double striker OR 4/4 hexproof, flying, lifelinker (unless you're lucky enough to draw one of each of 3 cards). So it's pretty much a midrange deck at this point? I don't know...this deck isn't particularly competitive so maybe it's just better to play a bunch of Thruns (which is pretty much what Soulflayer becomes)?

Hm interesting idea. Sadly in the current shell, many of the hits are actively bad with BBE: 3 Anger of the Gods, 2 Simian Spirit Guide, 3 Porphyry Nodes. I guess it's not inconceivable to make some version of this deck less reliant on 1 drops, SSG, and board wipes though.

Ironic isn't it ;) Of course wrath is actually worse than Day of Judgment in Modern (as discussed in the description). Besides killing our own Thrun, the Last Troll, Wrath is also more likely to get named by Meddling Mage than Day and hits virtually nothing additional.
