Carnophage Discussion

Ooh, I really like Diregraf Ghoul, that's a solid replacement for Carnophage I usually don't do a whole lot of blocking anyway, so that might be a solid choice!

And Oona's Prowler Looks like a solid addition. Would be nice to have more evasion.

Yeah, I'm not really sure why I left out 3cc stuff in the original build. Master of the Feast and Rotting Regisaur both look like solid additions, and give me some heavy hitters so I don't have to rely on Hatred so much. As mostly a pure weenie build as it sits, it does have a tendency to get bogged down versus bigger bodies.

I really appreciate the feedback! I'll look into testing a few different versions, and report back here once I've got some fresh results under my belt.

I like momo black aggro decks. Back in the old days I played a lot Black Suicide decks. On TappedOut I have a mono black singleton deck where you can find a lot of suggestion for your deck: Mono Black No More Suicide

Just some of the best suggestion:

For Carnophage maybe Diregraf Ghoul or Vampire Lacerator

Really good two-drops are: Oona's Prowler and Scrapheap Scrounger

But I would add more one-drops or some three-drops for better consistency of the mana usage of Dark Ritual Maybe Gutterbones, Bloodsoaked Champion, Master of the Feast, Dread Shade or Rotting Regisaur

You sure about Vampire Bats? Flying is swell, but I think a quick and low-to-the-ground deck like this might prefer something like Carnophage or Carrion Feeder .

Alright, I finished a few decks over the last couple hours or so.

Humans: $15 Humans (Elite Inquisitors are for some spicy Vampire/Werewolf/Zombie hate)

Vampires: $15 Madness Vampires (Stromkirk Noble in place of Vampire Lacerator/Indulgent Aristocrat can be cool against the humans deck)

Here's a bonus Kor equipment deck I made for fun a while ago but never posted on tappedout: $15 Kor Equipment

I tried to make a decent zombies deck that fit within the budget but it's such a popular tribe that all the semi-good cards are over $1 each, which made it nigh impossible to make something good. If you're fine with pauper decks though, here's a zombie deck I made in that format: Suicide is occasionally the answer. It's like 10 bucks without the sideboard and can hold up pretty well against other non-competitive modern decks (and is really fun in multiplayer with Shepherd of Rot heheh).

If you don't mind using non-pauper legal cards, I suggest you make these edits:

The last two add $8ish to the price tag but with them the deck becomes more competitive and easier to play. That said, managing your life total is pretty fun if you enjoy a challenge, and chaining together Maggot Carriers with Ghoulcaller's Chant to hit the opponent for the last few points of damage is pretty satisfying. Do what you want with it.

Fairly sure Carnophage is illegal in modern. Sangrophage or Diregraf Ghoul could be replacements.

Generally speaking, the more people in the game, the longer the game will last. This is due to the starting life being 40 in multiplayer and that there are more people to interact with. It's also more likely for a removal spell or boardwipe to be drawn to take out your creatures.

What all this boils down to is that you aren't going to be able to just sweep in and bash face as even if you focus down on one player, by the time you kill them, the others will have a more developed board. As a result trying to play for a longer game by using less of cheap creatures that will get quickly outclassed in the long game like Carnophage and look at ways to keep going in the late game like Phyrexian Arena and Stalking Vengeance.for the most part the deck is set up decently as it is for a multiplayer environment whereas the sideboard is what has more of an emphasis on 2-player games
