Smallpox Discussion

Why no Smallpox ? Seems like it would fit this deck really well, especially when you’re on the draw.

if its a casual deck you can do anything without a worry, if you want it to be a competitive list you would need to see at cards like Inquisition of Kozilek , Duress , Thoughtseize , Agonizing Remorse , Collective Brutality for hand disruption, Smallpox maybe probably not, for creature removal you would want to go low as well like Fatal Push , Dismember , Deadly Brew . you mostly would want to drop the avarage cmc of the deck, cards that dont help your game plan or wont do anything till 3 turn after cast will just hinder you, eg: Descent into Madness . cards that you could change that fit better that cards you already have are: Driven , Infuse with Vitality creatures that are good by themselves and cheap and could give you access to other game plans are: Putrid Leech , Lotleth Troll , idk Sarulf, Realm Eater ?

mostly focus on droping the cmc, after that go for cheaper removal and creatures, modern is a fast format for the most part.

Smallpox is good because you're trying to win by attrition, and 8rack needs almost no resources to win. Beating with Mutavault s and getting triggers from your Racks is the way to go, and Smallpox does a better job of cutting your opponent off of more cards.

Another good card can be Smallpox instead of Gatekeeper of Malakir.

Another good finisher in this deck can be Pack Rat . You only need 3 Mana on the board. So discarding is not a problem.

I'd recommend adding Smallpox to gain massive amounts of +1/+1 counters. In a typical 4-player-pod, you would place +1/+1 counters on all creatures you control.

TriusMalarky on Tergrid's Lantern viability in Modern

You really really need to get it to the point where your opponent has none of one of those things. If they have 3 or less life, you're playing burn or they're playing Shadow. If they are out of cards, they're playing burn or you're playing 8-rack/pox. If they have no nonland permanents, then they're either control and this didn't resolve or they've already lost.

Best shell IMO is a grind engine in a pox/rack shell. Run cards like Wrench Mind and Smallpox to crush their hand and resources, and then resolve The Rack and Shrieking Affliction to pressure their life total. Then all you need is the occasional Ritual of Soot and you're pressuring all 3 angles at once.

TheVectornaut on Mono black sacrifice control deck

The biggest potential weakness I see in this deck is that there's a sort of "cost void" between your 1-drops and your big demons, and the biggest threats in the deck may not be the most mana efficient. For instance, I'd probably run Desecration Demon or Demon of Catastrophes in a sacrifice deck instead of Goremand . I imagine he's a pet card for you though, so maybe you could lean more into the reanimator angle to cheat him in quickly. Most modern versions seem to be running Goryo's Vengeance into Griselbrand and praetors still, but I tend to prefer the budget alternatives. Some additions to Blood for Bones and Gravewaker are repeated activation creatures like Hell's Caretaker and Whisper, Blood Liturgist . Unburial Rites is also fairly popular if you don't mind splashing white. For the discard, staples include Thoughtseize , Collective Brutality , Ransack the Lab , and Mind Rake . For sacrifice synergy, I think Smallpox and Sinister Concoction could be options too. I'm also a big fan of creatures that mill for this role such as Stitcher's Supplier (which helps to play the very useful Gravecrawler ) or the green Satyr Wayfinder and all its Mulch brethren. Reanimator lets you play other big threats too, some of which could be Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Eater of Hope , or Xathrid Demon to stick with the demon theme. Another card I see as being pretty expensive here is Soul Foundry . The aforementioned Hell's Caretaker can usually produce a similar result without the 1 mana tax every turn. Furthermore, the tokens it creates could interfere with Grim Haruspex , a card draw engine I usually prefer to Dark Prophecy (or maybe Harvester of Souls if I'm feeling spicy.) There is some downside in cutting noncreature permanents for their creature counterparts, so choose the option that is being hit by removal the least in your meta. If creature hate is a problem, maybe a Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos could dissuade your opponents.

Nice build! +1

Check out Liliana's Caress to help speed up wins with all that discard maybe?
