Deck Description

A super cheap deck that can explode with damage.

The Deli uses an end of turn Fresh Meat, paired with lots of expendable creatures for you to trash. Most of your spells will pay for themselves, since you can use Eldrazi Scion/Spawn to pay the costs. You get a rechargeable creature font with Evolutionary Leap, as well as a free sac outlet with Spawning pit (which incidentally creates... more creatures to sac).

If the impact of your Fresh Meat Beasts doesn't kill them—then the god you worship will: Purphoros. Once he's out, your opponent will need to do anything they can to survive the constant barrage of damage on your tokens enter the battlefield triggers.

Deck discussion for The Deli [Modern]

I mean, without draw this is probably not gonna work, but this looks like that sorta thing that will give you nightmares for weeks once it goes off against you.
Unless you just say anger of the gods or some such phrase :D

Well the main goal is to use Evolutionary Leap to stay positive, but yeah—GR isn't really great at card draw.

The nice thing is—this deck deals its most damage at instant speed with sacrificing things + Fresh Meat, so an Anger of the Gods isn't much of a risk.

Mogg War Marshall instead of Myr Sire. Also I would consider Skin Invasion. I like the idea
