Fatestitcher is not in the decklist. Is there another more up to date list posted somewhere else? Thanks for the info on the Labman line of play. I may get a Bazaar of Baghdad at Christmas if I can figure out this deck.

The Sigi "Rough Treatment Plan" was derived from a Coach Bob Knight quote.

thundranos Yes. You can post your fb profile link on my wall and I can friend you so I can tag you. I'm pretty certain it's in the high end alters fb group.

Gosse the Unwinding Clock has always been super important imo, because it allows you to be unpunished for using our Grim Monolith, Basalt Monolith and Mana Vault. I've also had very good success using it with Nevinyrral's Disk.

As for budget replacements for the high dollar cards, sadly they are no where near the real deal. Crystal Vein is your best bet replacement, however you might consider Temple of the False God as well, as Guerte runs both in his budget build. You could add Mikokoro, Center of the Sea perhaps? The best game I ever won before I took my turn was an opening hand of Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Alhammarret's Archive and Bazaar of Baghdad. That game was over super quick due to the amount of cards I was drawing every turn.

Guerte's budget list can be found here:

@sonnet666 I have updated it somewhat, if I can figure out a way to massively mill my deck consistently, then I will do a major update adding nooze combos and sun titan (and friends) combos. Every combo searching for things to put into the grave is just obsolete to winning on the spot with relic warder from it, if i could mill 40 cards i would run other ones to grab whatever is there. Reassembling Skeleton and Nether Traitor both produce infinite triggers without darkest hour from phyrexian altar and have been added. Skullclamp and Mentor of the Meek both can infinitely draw my deck with Phyrexian or Ashnod's Altar to find a last piece. I have refrained from adding any infinite mana combos, as they happen sometimes off altars depending on which ones are present, and the outlets are dead otherwise. I have focused on Etb and dies triggers to kill the table with. Relic Warder uses the same outlets, but reanimator style. Sun Titan uses those same outs, but the combos arn't better than the ones I have, but use the same engine that is in place. Nooze combos are then reanimator style as well and could finish rounding out the list. The ways I can think of to do that are in green or dimir, and Morality Shift doesn't cut it, but if there is something, i will also at Bazaar of Baghdad with a bit of an overhaul. I added Recruiter of the Guard for another tutor as well.

Why don't you add Timetwister? First you can say you are playing the only legal piece of power nine in commander, it has a massive price tag on it, and when you need to justify it it's graveyard hate.

Another consideration is to add in Bazaar of Baghdad. Again big price, and is a rather decent draw engine and allows you to dig extremely quickly through your deck, and it will confuse people just as much as your Chains of Mephistopheles. To someone whom only knows how Demonic Tutor's "take cards from your library" means will think you get to tutor the two cards, and they also think the not casting between drawing and discarding I have seen people think be a static effect as in between draw phase and clean up. So you can have a bunch of fun trying have them figure it out on there own to just be explained by draw two discard 3. Although the card disadvantage can become a major burden very quickly so just be careful about it. So this one maybe you don't need to add but it's still nice, trust me I played a hyper competitive The Gitrog Monster deck, and Bazaar of Baghdad was the best card in the deck.

I like it! My previous mono-black CMDR that used a lot of these cards was Maralen of the Mornsong. I can sleeve up almost the entire deck but due to budget I plan to replace Candelabra of Tawnos, Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, and Bazaar of Baghdad with Liliana of the Veil, Geth's Grimoire, Crucible of Worlds, and Inventors' Fair. I think I will try Paradox Engine over Voltaic Key and Painful Quandary instead of Oppression.

Definitely get The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Mishra's Workshop, Timetwister...then probably some arabian nights stuff like Bazaar of Baghdad, Diamond Valley and so on. That's something not everyone plays, it's different from just buying more expensive versions of cards everyone uses, such as duals.

On the whole, I really like this banlist. Sure there are cards that are on it that I wish weren't on it (Back to Basics to punish multicolored decks, Humility to punish goodstuff decks), but there are lots of cards that are on it that I am glad are on it (literally all of the fast mana, Necropotence, Doomsday, Sensei's Divining Top, etc.) that will help the format. In addition, I wish the list also had Panoptic Mirror which goes infinite with any of the many Time Warp effects, Upheaval which easily turns a game one-sided, Captain Sisay to match all the other commanders that tutor, among others, but I'm glad they removed some of the tamer cards from the list, like Coalition Victory and Worldfire.

If you are curious on what the changes are from the paper commander banlist, I've examined the lists and here are the differences the MTGO banlist made to the official paper banlist:

Is Bazaar of Baghdad something that this deck would be interested in? Or is it not worth the land slot?
