Barren Moor Discussion

I see enough life gain spread around your decklist that a card like Demon's Horn seems pretty 'meh' to me. Same goes for Basilica Screecher . I would replace with Gifted Aetherborn as the lifelink/deathtouch will probably go farther than the extort on the bat.

With the 'swamps matter' mana ramp you have, I would look at both Wayfarer's Bauble and Myriad Landscape to get more into play faster. Star Compass is pretty much a second Charcoal Diamond .

Barren Moor would seem to be the easiest land to cut to make room for Cabal Coffers as you want to keep your swamp count high and you don't have a ton of ways to find the Tomb, as well as if you're looking to power out your commander, the fewer lands that come into play tapped, the better. YMMV here though. I don't tend to favor the cycle lands highly as either I never see them or they're in my opening hand.

No Mercy and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed are both great cards and both would be good in the deck. Mercy would be stronger in a deck that forces opposing creatures to attack and Mike is better in a deck that has more interaction with saccing creatures so neither would really be demonstrating their full power here.

Sinkhole is narrow and Gate to Phyrexia is expensive for what it does [to be fair, I do use Gate in my zombie deck and it's fine but it also was only $9 at the time I got it]. To give you a little flexibility you could add Unstable Obelisk . It takes a lot of mana to activate but provides an answer to both problematic lands and artifacts [plus added bonus of hitting planeswalkers and enchantments] that is at least a mana rock when you don't need it to blow something up.

IMO, the real reason I like Kukusho is for the lifegain. Getting 15 life allows you to get that much more card advantage. With ALL the ramp black has and all the card draw your commander provides, you should be able to win very easily. If your group knows you're going to cast repay in kind due to all your lifeloss, I wouldn't be surprised if it got countered or if they killed you prior to you being able to do so. Idk about your meta and the lvl of interaction but that's worth noting.

Thought Vessel > Charcoal Diamond - You already have enough black sources and the no max hand size is extremely useful for digging.

Reliquary Tower > Barren Moor - Utility > Looting. ESPECIALLY with necropotence, idk why it isn't in the deck already.

Again, Sol Ring , why isn't it in the deck?

You're also EXTREMELY vulnerable to artifacts and enchantments as you haven't slotted any removal for them. Some budget and non-budget options include....

Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Boompile , Ratchet Bomb , Perilous Vault , etc...

I highly suggest you consider running cycle lands like Lonely Sandbar Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket . With Life from the Loam , you can create an insane amount of value from continuously juggling lands to dredge over and over again. It’s often worth it to tutor for Loam with cycle lands in your deck.

Adding some higher-impact (though more expensive) draw, ramp and protection in the form of taxing and recursion and pulling out some more life-intensive spells.

I actually really strongly considered Elixir of Immortality . The swing point for me was that Cranial Archive has the potential to shut down graveyard or sac decks in a mirror match. I also haven’t been able to get my hands on any copies of Elixir. Barren Moor looks interesting though. I’ll have to play test it and see how it does. Thanks for the suggestions!

Swapping 2x Cranial Archive and 2x Swamp for 2x Elixir of Immortality and 2x Barren Moor would give similar effects cost wise, but add 10 life for correction if needed and you keep the Elixir. My mind works like, yea Moor ETB, but the 1 card draw + Elixir being 1 cheaper would even itself out most games. Regardless, the deck works very well, it looks to win fast and no changes are needed. Solid deck sir!
