I feel most comfortable playing aggressive fast decks like this.  I'm trying to build a deck for each format and this will be my Modern deck.  I've already started getting pieces for this deck, but I'll be changing the list a little bit.  Thinking about running a playset of Leyline of Punishment and Vexing Devil.

@AlbyMTG is your 8 Rack deck you played with recently similar to this list?

Nope.  Not even close.

8 Rack is a mono black discard based deck that gets your opponent to have as few cards in hand as possible.  It then uses The Rack and Shrieking Affliction to punish your opponent for having such few cards in their hand.  The name 8 Rack comes from the idea that you are playing 8 Rack-like effects (4 The Rack and 4 Shrieking Affliction).

8 Whack just copies the name of 8 Rack because it rhymes and you are playing 8 Whacker-like effects (4 Goblin Bushwacker and 4 Reckless Bushwacker).

I totally misread your tweet, thought you were playing 8 Whack, not Rack :D Can you post your 8 Rack deck list for us in another thread please?

Will do.  I have a lot of plans that involve this deck for when I get to make YouTube come back after finals week is done. Finals week is next week by the way, so big things to come very soon.  I'm excited.
