The First Rule of Fight Club...

Modern BG (Golgari) BRG (Jund) Casual Combo Control



Creature (1)

...is don't talk about my Phyrexian Obliterator .

To put it simply, this deck works by using fight abilities like Prey Upon on Phyrexian Obliterator to sweep the board. I will go into the details more detail below.

The Fighters:

Phyrexian Obliterator is the quintessential card here. When he is dealt damage in a fight, he wipes the opponents board.

Scavenging Ooze is another useful add. When the board is wiped, he exiles the opponents graveyard, giving me more life, and a stronger creature.

Desecration Demon is brutal in this deck. it get progressively bigger when an opponent decides to keep it in check, and makes a hard card to fight against. It also feeds the Scavenging Ooze .

The Fight Cards:

These cards provide the fight.

Prey Upon is an easy choice, for 1 mana it can easily clear the board.

Pit Fight is a personal favorite, instant speed casting means I can wipe the board during both turns.

Ulvenwald Tracker is a Pit Fight on a stick, and is great because of that. Repeated uses are great when i can’t draw any cards I need.

Savage Punch is a great one. While it is a sorcery, when it is used on an obliterator, it makes for a much more powerful fighter. Many people insist I use Setessan Tactics instead, but I find that to be inferior, because it causes my creature to tap, thus preventing an attack following the fight.

Utility cards:

These cards get me the things I need, mana, and protection. Take a look.

Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid are my mana producers. I run 8, which many people find to be too many, but I actually need this many with such diverse mana costs. It would be almost impossible to cast my Phyrexian Obliterator without them.

Mwonvuli Beast Tracker tutors for either a Phyrexian Obliterator or a Vampire Nighthawk , and gives me a chump blocker as well. Not bad.

Vines of Vastwood provides my creatures with hexproof when they’re vulnerable, and provides them with more power and toughness when they’re fighting.

The Sideboard:

Abrupt Decay is an obvious choice for a golgari deck. Cannot be countered and destroys lower mana cost permanents, which is excellent in modern.

Chord of Calling is just another way to get my creatures out, if for some reason my tutors don’t work.

Vampire Nighthawk is a great utility creature that can be tutored with the beast tracker, and is a great fighter.

Dismember is easy to cast, and kills most anything I’d need it to.

Go for the Throat is very handy creature control.

Maelstrom Pulse is one of my favorites, especially if the opponent likes to throw duplicate creatures at me.

Aim High is a good one for when you want to surprise with your Desecration Demon keeps getting tapped by your opponent and you want a surprise attack, after you make them sac a creature just to keep him tapped. also good for keeping your Phyrexian Obliterator as a blocker and attacker.

Well, that’s my deck. It is very fun to play, and I would really recommend you give it a shot some time. Thank you for reading.
