dshavers Thanks for playing it! Yeah I think villiage rites could play just fine in here. I encourage you to tinker and let me know what works.The only two cards that I think must remain 4x are Hateful Eidolon and Demonic Embrace the later of which is very important to this decks life-gain strategy, which is especially crucial against other aggro decks.

Strategy-wise I recommend a mulligan for any slow hand. Ideally you'd love to see Hateful Eidolon and one of the murdering enchantments, but Aphemia, the Cacophony can replace the spirit and still generate a good advantage. I try to make sure to squeeze every last card draw out of the spirit.

Maybe Dead Weight? And others of its kind in the family of enchants-that-kill. And, if you do end up doing that, try out Hateful Eidolon.

The thought of of slapping Demonic Embrace on the zombie dinosaur is very enticing. I'll have to consider that.

I do fear losing the card advantage though. I feel like this deck needs both the recursion and card draw from Hateful Eidolon to keep up. although it would also feed Aphemia... hmmm that is intersting. I never play best of 3 but I would definitely put it in the side board. I'll through it in for few games either way and see how it plays.

DanMcSharp I will tell you the Imp is mainly in to control the skies. While I do have removal in the deck, nothing removes quite like a tiny little 1/2 with Deathtouch. I do like the potential for adding in Hateful Eidolon as one thing I'd been looking for in my playtests is a bit of extra draw. Same with Lochthwain really, especially later in game when my mana is just sitting there

I don't think Thought Distortion belongs in this deck. It's meant to be used mostly as a sideboard card, possibly to be fetched with something like Fae of Wishes to really hit a hard on a control player that has a hand full of good stuff. In this deck, your opponent will be mostly empty-handed by the time you cast it. You will maybe make them discard 1 or 2 cards at best, if you're lucky.

Fetid Imp is pretty weak and taxes you 1 mana just to remain useful. If you really want a deathtouch creature, you could use Mire Triton instead, but if I was you I would use Yarok's Fenlurker instead, a typical 2 drop in any discard deck, and it would fuel your devotion better for Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

Kaervek, the Spiteful is an interesting addition, but since he's not always useful and is legendary, I would only run a single copy, maybe 2 if you really like him. Would kill a Yarok's Fenlurker if you decide to use some too.

Mire's Grasp and Dead Weight would work really well with Hateful Eidolon, could be an worthwhile addition. Btw, since you already run those as creature removal, you could swap some Grasp of Darkness for Eliminate so that you can also hit planeswalkers.

You should also run a few Castle Locthwain, no real reasons not to tbh.

Hopefully these suggestions are useful, cheers!

LittleBlueHero thanks. I’ve been playing this and it competes pretty well in the Platinum 4 tier in Arena. Any hand that has you attacking with a 4/2 flying lifelinker on turn 3 does pretty well.

There’s also Hateful Eidolon for card draw. Dead Weight and Mire's Grasp trigger it when they kill an opponents creature.

I just want to add this. Hateful Eidolon is a fun enchantress type card for black.
