Great deck, but the mana goes away after your main phase, so you can't use it after you attack with Death's Shadow to cast Rite of Consumption. . .

Maybe a bit slow from summoning sickness, but ever consider Brion Stoutarm? He is basically Rite of Consumption on a stick.

Only other fling effect I can think of is Rite of Consumption. Sorcery speed and not your colors though.

Go for Blood might be a little better for your purposes.

Oblation is being replaced with Essence Harvest trying to find something to replace for Rite of Consumption

Blue_Flame: Actually there's Rite of Consumption, which is unfortunately a Sorcery. Also, I don't have any copies of it either. =( I'll add it to my shopping list.

Otherwise, you're right. I should either better define the roles of each color in the deck or eliminate one--meaning red. Also, I like the suggestion of the land, that could work very well.

Thanks for your help! =)

Rite of Consumption could be nice for the added life gain. Also, something like Incite might be good to force attacks.

bradtheimpaler13 Thanks for the suggestions! I will keep them in mind as I move forward with the deck. Addressing your suggestions one at a time; I don't think Rite of Consumption holds up. Thud has a lower CMC, Fling is an Instant, and other cards like Soul's Fire allow Grevan to do the damage which is relevant for Tainted Strike . If I end up moving towards more combat tricks it will go in though. I'm going to playtest with Clackbridge Troll but I don't think the deck needs the draw and to me that is the only advantage of the card
