Cool deck!

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death was one of the first generals I built a commander deck around and I've been tuning mine ever since.

Replacements I would make

  • Replace Dolmen Gate with Reconnaissance since it costs 1 less and also can untap your creatures after damage has been dealt to give them pseudo-vigilance.
  • Replace Angel of Invention with Marionette Master since if you get infinite ETBs on marionette master, you can sac the infinite tokens to deal infinite damage.

Other cards I might suggest

I know you're looking for cuts currently, but one include that compliments your commander extremely well would be Krark's Thumb.

Also your forum post said you want to get things back with reanimator effects, but you don't include Animate Dead or Necromancy. Whip of Erebos and Victimize could also be useful to you. Following off of your forum post, if filling your graveyard is your goal, Mesmeric Orb is a fantastic card for such strategies.

As for cuts, I'd probably cut Solemn Simulacrum, Torch Fiend, Demon of Death's Gate (I'm just never impressed with this big demon personally), and Finale of Eternity.

I'd cut: Griselbrand (banned :P), Soulcage Fiend , The Scorpion God , Stronghold Overseer , Hazoret's Monument , Revel in Riches

I'd recommend adding more lands and lower cost creatures, and switching mana rocks to use more that cost 2 instead of 3 like Talisman of Indulgence or Mind Stone

Lower cost Demons, Devils and Imps: Ammit Eternal , Cadaver Imp , Desecration Demon , Herald of Torment , Sin Prodder , Soot Imp , Spawn of Mayhem , Torch Fiend

Oh, also, now that you've nixed Torch Fiend , you're a little light on artifact removal. You could swap out Wrecking Ball for Pillage or Violent Impact to remedy that, since your deck is packed with creature removal.

Xica on How to overcome 8-Rack

3 years ago

One option is blowing up their Ensnaring Bridge and racing them, after all that card is the biggest asset of the deck.
However doing so is problematic since you need to draw into it, as bridge wont be on the field before turn 3 and they will try to strip the answers out of your hand.
To combat this tactic the best is to use artifact destruction that is useful when not in hand Ancient Grudge, Seal of Primordium, Qasali Pridemage, Torch Fiend are all good answers for it (in this order), while being good against other matchups that rely on artifacts.

Plan B is to just hate on the fact that many of their discard spells need a "target player" - otherwise the 8 racks would punish them just as much as you.
Here is the selesction of cards that offer this effect in modern: Leyline of Sanctity, Witchbane Orb, Ivory Mask, Imperial Mask, Orbs of Warding, Aegis of the Gods, True Believer, Sigarda, Heron's Grace

Your deck is a little top heavy, Id suggest some changes along the lines of:

  1. Rakdos, Lord of Riots is likely to be more relevant than Ob Nixilis, Unshackled simply because it is cheaper to play.

  2. Hellspark Elemental is a better option than Gibbering Fiend unless you are going for devil/demon tribal, but then Torch Fiend has more utility.

  3. Indulgent Tormentor is cool but very easy to remove, instead I'd suggest 1 more Desecration Demon and 2 of either Master of Cruelties, Hellrider or Bedlam Reveler.

Mainboard it would be nice to find space for Sin Prodder and Dash Hopes.

Otherwise for your sideboard Dreadbore could be handy to deal with planeswalkers and Rain of Gore is a handy trick. Blightning and Rakdos Charm could also have a place.

You may want to look into four Timber Gorge, as the ability to produce colors in either/or is a boon for any multi-colored deck. And do your opponents play enough Artifacts to justify Torch Fiend? If they don't, and it's just there as a body, I would recommend Akoum Stonewaker or Makindi Sliderunner as a replacement that fits the Landfall theme you have going on. Alternately Deranged Whelp or Ember-Eye Wolf also fit the same drop point of and aren't expensive to purchase as singles.

Servo_Token on Maindeck-able Hate for Certain Matchups

If you're really desperate, Kataki, War's Wage is basically the best anti-affinity creature there is.

Otherwise, you just need to know what to remove and when and hope your draws line up well for game one. There aren't too many creatures that just shut down the deck and also have utility in other matchups. You could play like Linvala, Keeper of Silence or Phyrexian Revoker I suppose.

Torch Fiend / Manic Vandal if you're really really desperate.
