3-1 Tuesday Modern (1-2 in reality)
Lost 0-2 Urza Thopter First time playing against this archetype, i didn't play optimally. But wound up getting my opponent down to 1 life before they runner runner into Thopter Foundry then Sword of the Meek in two turns.
Lost 1-2 Bridgevine My opponent needed to drop so he gave me the match win, but it simply plays out, Graveyard hate against them i win, no hate i lose.
Won 2-0 Grixis Shaman I was able to eat through their card advantage with the combo, game 2 it really is shown to me that this deck plays well through Leyline of the Void as we both played it against each other. It just slows us down it doesn't hose the strategy like these other strategies.

Sunday Modern 3-1
2-1 Mono-red Pheonix
The loss came down to a top deck against Burn in the first match. In the Infect matchup i won through a mistake (forgot Carrion Feeder could not block). Merfolk was able to land a Retribution of the Ancients first game then landed a turn 2 Choke and won through mana flood. Final game steamrolled by Arclight pheonix, game 2 opponent stuck on one land tempo'd him out, game 3 landed turn 0 Leyline of the Void which tipped the balance in my favor.

So, i forgot about Cabal Therapist ... i mean under the right circumstance you can pick apart your opponents hand. Super relevant, thinking about building an even more low to the ground more controlling deck with Therapists, Inquisition of Kozilek and Liliana of the Veil .

Tell me how Viscera Seer plays out, i could see the argument of running 3 Plague Belcher to make room for a Seer...

No i haven't. i am hesitant to try because i feel like Hardened Scales in this deck is a "Win more" card.
i never really felt that when i built a solid board i was deficient, like i needed more counters, only that i didn't quite get the combo rolling in time. Even the game i lost, i dispatched his Thought-Knot Seer then took some lumps from a Reality Smasher , i still had time to get Yawgmoth on board and juggle sacrifice to draw 5 more cards to find my out (Trophy) As far as graveyard hate, 1 they have to have it/draw it, and i don't think the deck is dead in the water if it hits the board. The concept of why this deck wins so much is it can attack on an aggressive tilt, but also has alot of flexibility and reach when entering into the mid-game. It's great at drawing resources from your opponent, and when we exchange counters to pick apart their board, well kudos to an opponent that works through it. I did have an opponent use Surgical Extraction on my Strangleroot Geist . After he looked at this deck, he said "Wow, this is a great brew! i'm really impressed. Then after finishing exiling them, he said " Wow, i am so dead..."

4-0 with the deck. Strong outing with wins over 2-0 Grixis Ninjas, 2-1 Eldrazi Tron, 2-0 Elves, and finally 2-0 Infect.
I took out a Peatland and am running an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . In the matches i felt like the Peatland were a bit too painful sometimes and Urborg can help with that, and there are times you want as much black mana you can get for Retribution of the Ancients . Pretty exciting this deck is for real

Tuesday night Modern 4-0 $60 store credit winner.
2-0 Grixis Ninja
2-1 Eldrazi Tron
Deck ran greater than expected. This deck pulls way ahead as most decks get behind expending resources against the efficient creatures. And once you get established with a Retribution, you can just absolutely wreck someone's board. I ran up against a game 1 critical mass of elves, turn 3 i was down to 5 life after an attack and Shaman of the Pack Some strategic Retributions in 2 turns i decimated his board and won running away. Soooo impressed, this deck is for real.

So after sharing ideas and looking at the direction you were headed with your list i made one of my own. Calling it Retribution Rock. So subtle differences from yours and reasons. Dryad Arbor over a Pendelhaven . i like the idea of fetching a creature to sacrifice. Other lands that peak my interest for this deck Mutavault Bojuka Bog Llanowar Reborn So a huge reason i ran Aether Vial was because of how difficult it can be casting double and triple colors. Many opponents will board in Blood Moon against me even when i was running 4 Channeler Initiate and 4 vials, and surprisingly it always tempo'd me or sometimes shut me down. So Sylvan Caryatid helps reach that triple black, since casting Geralf's Messenger is priority in this build, having a hexproof manadork helps ensure one hits the board. Also the big butt on Caryatid triggers evolve, and can absorb 2 -1/-1 counters from Plague Belcher in a pinch. Speaking of, that extra damage from a zombie dying from the Belcher can really mean the difference, hence i strongly believe in running a playset. I really look forward to my Tuesday night modern. I really look forward to pilot the deck and have creative lines of attacking and interacting with Retribution. Will report back with how it fares.

I really feel that running 4 Carrion Feeder to enable the sacrifice outlet is neccessary. Being able to reset your +1/+1 counters through the undying triggers after you exhaust them with a Retribution of the Ancients trigger. Just sac them to the Feeder and immediately get 2 power back for each Undying trigger on the board. With the emphasis on +1/+1 counters i would also look to try various Hydras, i've always wanted to slot in Genesis Hydra and Primordial Hydra in a modern deck...

Thanks for the suggestions. Retribution of the Ancients combos well with Undying creatures in order to pump Carrion Feeder . Definitely am looking to change the list again to try it out and shift the deck to take advantage of that to afford early pressure.
