Barren Moor Discussion

This deck is going to be a lot better than folks are thinking. My build is similar to yours but didn't include the draw option Sign in Blood which might be useful in a few rare circumstances but for now I'm relying on Barren Moor and Unearth cycling to grab cards if I'm desperate. I also like the inclusion of Peat Bog quite a bit. I'd probably play Crypt Rats main board but I'd definitely play some spot removal in the side at least. Excellent deck and black has too many options here.

I think something like Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper is a must at least as a 2 of to help keep the deck turning out new threats in the mid to late game when it is topdeck time. A couple of cycling lands (Barren Moor) could also help.

General Recommendations: Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, Metallic Mimic, Vanquisher's Banner, Konda's Banner, Adaptive Automaton, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Indulgent Aristocrat, Sanctum Seeker, Profane Procession, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Necropolis Regent, Secure the Wastes, Martial Coup, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Elspeth Tirel, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Heliod, God of the Sun, Ravos, Soultender, Vona, Butcher of Magan , Debtors' Knell, Merciless Eviction, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, Deathbringer Liege, Righteous War, Pillar of Origins, Cavern of Souls, Unclaimed Territory (meh), Intangible Virtue (meh), Kindred Boon (meh), Eldrazi Monument (meh).

Austere Command, because you can save your tokens.

Strionic Resonator mainly for your general, but it can work for anything that triggers.

I won't try to sell this to you that much, but Mirage Mirror or Mirror of the Forebears can have some trickery to it if you play it right. Can also feel bad if you don't have any creatures on the field.

Late game when you don't need mana: Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, Desert of the Glorified, Desert of the True, Drifting Meadow, Secluded Steppe

Murder Barren Moor and Smuggler's Copter are all not standard legal.

Also don't forget cards like Barren Moor as they are effectively draw 2 for 1 mana

You can cut out Cascading Cataracts for Diseased Vermin. You've already got two fetches for Swamps and Cascading Cataracts is almost completely useless in a mono-colored deck.

I'd also highly recommend some more non-basics like Lake of the Dead, Wasteland, Strip Mine, Peat Bog, Barren Moor, Everglades, Bojuka Bog, Volrath's Stronghold, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Cabal Coffers.

Figured I'd hop in here and put in my two cents, since you made some suggestions for my deck Karador, Ghost Cheiftain (Cheep Graveyard Master).

He_Who_Hungers Commented on the difference between Grave Pact & Dictate of Erebos and I felt as I should chime in. Because he is correct, Dictate is a much better card.

If you read the card's very, very closely (because that's a MUST in MTG), Dictate of Erebos is significantly better! Primarily because in Grave Pact the creature has to hit your graveyard to trigger the ability, so Tokens don't count. Where in Dictate of Erebos, it doesn't matter, it's just a creature that has to die, so Tokens DO count. Personally, I'd use both of them.

Also, what is the point of Barren Moor? Is it the discard ability? If it is, I'd rather just have a basic land. Or better yet, Phyrexian Tower My favorite sacrifice land.

I'd really contemplate adding in Victimize to your deck. It's a must in a graveyard deck.

For my final note, have you though about taking out the tutors for card draw? From what I counted, including creatures, you have 6 tutors, and your missing my favorite Buried Alive. Replacing something like Worldly Tutor for Momentous Fall, or Life's Legacy could help you fill your hand back up.

Hope all of this helps out!

Happy Graveyard Hunting!!

Barren Moor isnt modern legal, if you want something that is still fairly cheap and has a similar effect you could try Desert of the Glorified it is a little easier to access than some other cycling lands. Archfiend of Ifnir, Faith of the Devoted, and Shadow of the Grave might also be a good investment into improving your cycling, not to mention they are also fairly cheap.
