Creature — Demon

Delve (Each card you exile from your graveyard while casting this spell pays for .)

If a creature card with flying was exiled with Soulflayer's delve ability, Soulflayer has flying. The same is true for first strike, double strike, deathtouch, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, reach, trample, and vigilance.

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:

There are some okay creatures that are legal in a variety of formats the you can use. Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar with enough land-dumping cards like Hour of Promise, Rampant Growth in Modern, and more.

Soulflayer build do work, their only weakness being that half their creatures are impossible to cast, so you're either using 'flayer or Unburial Rites(in Modern) to use them. IMO, use Gifts Ungiven with Rites and a ton of massive, heavily abilitied creatures to set up quick kills. Use cards like Tome Scour, Thought Scour etc.

Look at Soulflayer and Odric, Lunarch Marshal they have to have a defined list

First of all please put a CMDR Behind your COmmander :) I would recoment Nighthawk Scavenger its a better Vampire Nighthawk. Soulflayer as a backup would be possible. Carnage Tyrant and Nightveil Predator are also a nice cards to give Rayami Keywords. Mistcutter Hydra will protect you from blue

Unfortunately it may be fast enough for modern but what will end up happening is whatever demon you put out is probably going to get exiled or destroyed. Hence, you'll get like 5 for 1ned or something like that. It's still very flavorful though. You decide what you want to do with your deck. The only demon card that can have hexproof is Soulflayer and its not even guaranteed.

Ooo, this is tasty. I Love the interaction between Gurmag Swiftwing and Soulflayer!

Ditch blue, and use a fetcheless RG mana base, look up fetchless. storm for reference.

Stop using ramp cards that have a cmc higher than 1. Its bad enough to loose 1 mana ramp cards to removal, don't make the issue rose by losing even more tempo with them. Cards like Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma
Even cards like Sakura-Tribe Elder are so weak that they don't really see play outside valakut decks, where the fetched land acting as Lightning Bolt is a huge upside. Similarly Sylvan Caryatid is played only in Soulflayer decks, as it grants a relevant keyword on top of ramping, and Jeskai Ascendancy decks, where your combo piece being hexproof matters a LOT.

Don't run "do nothing" cards, like Electrodominance.

If you feel the need to run card draw, run something like Life's Legacy, or even just Combustible Gearhulk, that way you avoid having to splash blue, and get a card that plays better in most situations. (gearhulk is 4-8 damage, or you draw 3, life's legacy can be played after some value plays baited counterspells)

And for the sake of all thats good run some unconditional interaction, be it Lightning Bolt, Bonecrusher Giant, Abrade or whatever else you like.

P.s.: If you want some fine budget powerhouses you may want to tinker around with cards like It of the Horrid Swarm, or Decimator of the Provinces - while they require a very specific mana curve among creatures in the deck to accomodate them, they are brutal if those conditions are fullfilled.

SynergyBuild on Akroma Relevance?

9 months ago

@TriusMalarky Actually, you can check and Akroma, Angel of Wrath has put up some old tournament results in a modern Soulflayer list!

I've seen some decent Mtgo league results for the morph flicker combo with Akroma, Angel of Fury, but no tournament results.

So, while not amazing, both actually can and have seen 60-card deck play, they are definently not 100% unplayable, and any more morph combos will always have Akroma as an option for the best cheat target. No clue what could be printed though!
