Should I Put FotVD in These Decks?

I would like to put Feast of the Victorious Dead into these two decks, but I am not certain what cards to remove from those decks to make room for the feast.

In my Tariel, Reckoner of Souls deck, I feel that Glory of Warfare may be rather expensive (although I admit that Fists of the Demigod or Searing Meditation may also be rather superfluous in that deck, as well; Pain Magnification at least helps to fill my opponents' graveyards, for me to plunder them), but I am less certain about my Teneb, the Harvester deck; I am not certain that that deck contains a sufficient number of artifacts to justify it containing Glissa, the Traitor, but she also is an easy way to get creatures into my opponents' graveyards, for me to then steal with Teneb.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I put Feast of the Victorious Dead into those two decks?

Feast of the Victorious Dead is more of an aristocrats card than a grave-stealing card. IMO your Teneb deck seems more aristocrats themed than your Tariel.

scotchtapedsleeves, I definitely thank you for your feedback, but I do feel that there are significant similarities between those two decks, so I do not see a problem with putting the feast into both of them.

Ahh sorry, I misunderstood the question. I thought you were trying to pick which deck to put the card in.

For Teneb, I would swap out Elixir of Immortality. I've always found it underpowered.

For Tariel, I'm not a huge fan of Scourge of the Nobilis. Have you thought about including Sneak Attack?

Your mana curve seems extremely high in both decks. What do you expect your turn 1,2,3,4 plays to be? Is your playground very battlecruiser-y?

scotchtapedsleeves, I actually replaced Glory of Warfare with the feast, since the former enchantment was simply not a good match for the deck's theme, but I would sooner remove Fists of the Demigod over Scourge of the Nobilis, since the scourge can be quite powerful, in certain situations.
