Agent of Masks Discussion

The deck looks fun. There are a few cards Armageddon, Agent of Masks, Triad of Fates and a few others, that just seem some what random. I can't tell wether you have a life gain sub theme or something. I think I a just a little confused on the themes in the deck, I could suggest some cards if it was more clear. :)

If you want to inch towards a more drain and gain over several turns here are a few ideas you might want to consider
If you want to proceed along a more lifegain based creature buff type thing then you might want to consider

It might be in flavor if you focused on effects gaining you life and losing opponents.
Things that work well for that are) Agent of Masks, Bloodchief Ascension, Campaign of Vengeance, Cliffhaven Vampire, Drana's Emissary, maybe Essence Depleter (depending on your mana rock situation), Exquisite Blood/Sanguine Bond, Exsanguinate, Falkenrath Noble, Infectious Curse, DEFINITELY Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Kaya, Ghost Assassin, Knights of the Black Rose, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Palace Siege, Polluted Bonds, Retreat to Hagra, Scholar of Athreos, Souls of the Faultless, Subversion, Suture Priest, Trespasser's Curse, Twilight Prophet, and Zulaport Cutthroat.
So yeah. Plenty of suggestions there to consider.

I recommend Pontiff of Blight over Agent of Masks as does so much more. Brion Stoutarm only works great with Wurmcoil Engine and Solemn Simulacrum, so I recommend repeatable creature steal in the form of Captivating Crew or similar to optimize Brion. If you want the repeatable free drain from Agent of Masks still, I recommend Palace Siege for the versatility of it. It is a shame that you do not have Felidar Sovereign in your deck when it revolves around life gain. Unless your playgroup doesn't allow instant wins, you should include it. Gisela, the Broken Blade is way better than Aerial Responder, as the first strike on Gisela is amazing. Rhox Faithmender is amazing with all the life gain going on and has lifelink as well. I would say it is better than Vampire Nighthawk unless you want the nighthawk for it's creature type. Feel free to ignore anything outside your price range. +1

First off, nice to see you again. Second, I figured I would have to address all these issues again. I know that the CMC is heavy, it was before I had to rebuild the deck. I totally forgot about Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so that will be something to go in. If somebody is giving me trouble then Vizkopa Confessor and Sin Collector can take care of some of their key cards (looking at you combo and control players). Revenant Patriarch may seem underwhelming, but it has really helped me before. Once when I used it against an Aurelia, the Warleader voltron deck I was able to buy some time so I could ult my Liliana Vess to take them out. Agent of Masks and Yahenni, Undying Partisan seem underwhelming, but they work great with the other cards in the deck.
Thanks for the help!

One thing that really stood out to me was that the average CMC is ~4, and there are only 4 ramp cards. That's higher than my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck and it has plenty of high-CMC bombs!
There aren't too many options for ramp in BW, but you'll find plenty of ramp in black. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers go together amazingly. Basalt Monolith is a nice, quick 3 mana. Orzhov Cluestone, Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone and Hedron Archive all provide ramp early game, and can be cracked for draws late game.
As for cuts, I'd recommend Vizkopa Confessor and Sin Collector since single player discard is low-impact in multiplayer games. Agent of Masks, Yahenni, and Revenant Patriarch are either mediocre or don't really follow the deck's game plan.
Hope this helps!
