This week, we’re heading to Modern to play a card that I’ve wanted to play for a long time but never could because it was far too expensive for the budget: Phyrexian Obliterator! Thanks to the Masters 25 reprinting, the four-drop is down to almost $16, after being up near $40 not long ago, suddenly making it an option for Budget Magic. When you combine the newly cheap Phyrexian Obliterator with the freshly printed Dread Shade, Mono-Black Devotion suddenly has a ton of new toys in Modern! The plan of our deck—Obliterator Devotion—is pretty simple: we curve out with strong black creatures, hit for huge chunks of damage with Dread Shade and Phyrexian Obliterator, and then finish off our opponent with the massive draining power of Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Can the combo of Phyrexian Obliterator and Dread Shade make Mono-Black Devotion a legitimate budget option for Modern? Let’s get to the video and find out!
