Raven's Crime


Target player discards a card.

Retrace (You may cast this card from your graveyard by discarding a land card in addition to paying its other costs.)

Great question, seshiro_of_the_orochi! When I initially built this some 10 years ago Thoughtseize was indeed kept out due to it's price point. It was quite a staple at the time in Standard during Theros block too!

But the main reason it doesn't come in nowadays is the life point defecit for casting. With the speed of Modern and the very precarious position life can be in at the end of a game every 2 life points matter.

Inquisition of Kozilek and Extirpate both fill a similar outcome to Thoughtseize. If someone were looking to use it however I would say you could drop Cry of Contrition and a single Raven's Crime to put three of them into the deck :)

EDIT: Try to make it as degenerate and combo-y as possible, please

Ok, so here's a few top picks (imho) for Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip.

Oppression, Liliana, Waker of the Dead, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Living Death, Delirium Skeins, Innocent Blood, Cunning Lethemancer, Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Words of Waste, Smokestack, Sword of Feast and Famine & Chains of Mephistopheles (just proxy it lol)

There's also a lot of cheaper options that are just as synergistic like Plaguecrafter, Demon's Disciple, Raven's Crime, Hymn to Tourach, Mind Twist, Mind Shatter, Mind Slash & Sadistic Hypnotist.

Outside of the synergy pieces, I'd recommend replacing some of those low-power pieces like Bad Deal & Inevitable End with value pieces like Dark Ritual & Vampiric Tutor for greater consistency.

I really love the Groundskeeper synergy with Raven's Crime to end games and i think youre totally right with Arboreal Grazer being great considering how many lands we have in hand

What's the specific win condition? I don't see a ton of removal or evasive creatures, and while there's good beef here, it's either mana-heavy or reliant on Adventuring Gear. Raven's Crime + recursion is solid control, so that would help.

Since you run 24 lands, I feel like you could get some good mileage out of Raven's Crime, I personally think it's a good x1 or x2 in a a discard deck that runs plenty of lands.
