Collective Brutality Discussion

Took TDS to the a tournament for the first time, SCG Regionals Minneapolis. I finished 4-2 before dropping to meet a prior engagement.
M1 lost to Dredge in 3. Took out discard and brought in everything I could think of with the big piece being Yixlid Jailer . I had a good chance to win game 3 but just couldn't find a threat.
M2 lost to Ad Naus in 3. Took out removal and brought in more discard. I had a good chance to win game 3 but he top decked the combo the turn before I would have won.
M3 bye. Thank you.
M5 beat Devoted Druid in 3. I boarded out all discard and in all removal. It was money and I took a hard fought game 2 and 3.
M6 beat UR Kiki Moon in 3. I stomped him game 1 and never figured out what he was even playing. Game 2 he beat me with the combo, and then in game 3 I had the play and understood his plan so was able to navigate to victory. This was the least boarding I did just bringing in Veil of Summer and Plague Engineer .
Overall the deck felt great. You feel like a filthy casual swinging for 20 with double Shadow or TBR, and you look like a pro with all of the card draw, tutoring, and clutch decisions.

This is pretty cool, and surprisingly fast.
Maybe Collective Brutality in your sideboard for Burn?

Off the top of my head? Cards that come to mind... Liliana, the Last Hope , Damping Sphere , Lyra Dawnbringer . Those can all help swing bad match-ups. Collective Brutality is an especially good option in decks using Lingering Souls.

I've also been thinking about fitting Ayara into my devotion deck. She's definitely solid. I'm interested to hear how this works. I have been liking Kitesail Freebooter in the 2-drop slot for additional hand disruption, that might be a good addition for you over Blacklance Paragon , or Collective Brutality since it adds devotion. Maybe drop 2 Brutality for 2 Booters?
How has this been working with just 20 lands? Do you get mana screwed often or does it end up working out with Nythkos.

Looks good so far, I like Banehound . Just need to smooth out the curve, if you need more 2-drops, maybe go with Collective Brutality and drop a Thoughtseize and a Fatal Push . 4 push, 4 Dismember and 4 Murderous Rider seems like overkill. Gatekeeper of Malakir has been working pretty well for me so far, gives you that creature removal while adding devotion. You already have a creature with built-in removal though...I'm interested in hearing how Murderous Rider works out.

As sad as it is to lose this deck, it was completely unplayable because of the other graveyard decks, and modern is now in a better place without looting.

Also, you will need less graveyard hate in the sideboard. And I think that great additions in the side can be Collective Brutality and Abrade , because of Burn and Whirza, that are popular decks right now.
