Hello everyone! Welcome to another edition of Dave’s Deranged Decks! Today we will be bringing you some Modern action and I am joined by special guest and good friend Nick who helped my brew this week’s deck. It is a spicy one. We are calling the deck Rain of Gore named after the card it was built around. Rain of Gore from Dissension is a two mana BR enchantment that turns life gain into life loss. However, it didn’t quite work how we initially thought. Reading is hard! You see Nick and I thought the card made any player lose life if they would gain life and it some what does that but the part we missed was that little line that said “its controller”. Needless to say my first test game with the deck did not go as planned!

I was ready to throw in the towel but Nick suggested we add more Tainted Remedy and run with it. Reluctantly, I agreed and here we are with Rain of Gore version two! The idea of the deck is to use powerful cards like Condemn and Fiery Justice that normally have the downside of giving the opponent life and transform that into life drain with the enchantment Tainted Remedy (aka Rain of Gore). This makes cards like Wall of Shards drain the opponent every turn and a card such as Alms Beast really mess up combat math.

Let’s check out the decklist and then see how we did!

The deck was so much fun to play and you can expect to see more of it on my stream. We have already brewed up a new version! We had some rough matches but I think with some sideboard tweaking we can make the deck a bit smoother. I may need to give up on the dream of dealing ten damage to someone with Fiery Justice… so sad… but I’ll get over it!

If you have not watched the videos all the way through make sure you check out round two as it really showcased the concept behind the deck against the up and coming Temur decks.

As always my offer always stands that if you want to see more of the deck come hang out on stream with me at twitch.tv/dcmdame and mention this article and I will gladly showcase it for you! Any comments or suggestions drop them here or on Twitch and I will happily get back to you. Thanks for checking out the article and a big thanks to Nick for hanging out and playing the deck with me as well as helping brew it up!  Always remember, it’s you, the fans, which make it all worth it!
