Behold the Beyond Discussion
4 days ago
I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha

I see a few things that could be changed in this deck. The first is that you're running Honden of Night's Reach without any of the other shrines. Because of the fact that Honden of Cleansing Fire works very well in this deck, I would definitely recommend them. If, however, you choose not to add them, I would recommend cutting Honden of Night's Reach for Propaganda and Ghostly Prison. Sorin Markov is an especially devastating planeswalker in commander, and his second ability allows you to blast someone for a lot of "damage". Increasing Ambition can also be cut for something like Behold the Beyond. Basically a copy of Banishing Light, Oblivion Ring would also work well in your deck. Phyrexian Unlife would also be very good, but if you play it you have to include the infinite combo with Solemnity. Zur the Enchanter would help with this, and I would consider a more enchantment-based theme, given that you are playing both white and black. If you do, Sphere of Safety and Crawlspace work very well. Anyway, cheers!

Thanks for the ideas. Behold the Beyond definitely fits. There's really no wrong answer.
Myself, here are some I found that I think fit:

You know, this is a rather interesting theme. I'm still running through a list of black cards on gatherer, but is this what you meant?

Hey bro I like you fun list,
Have you thought of cards like Windfall to help fill up your hand and give you solid hand disruption? or maybe throwing in a Ghostly Flicker for an extra win con with Dualcaster Mage? I would also maybe take out Behold the Beyond because it is so expensive and add in a Dark Petition since it refunds 3 mana.
Since you are running Paradox Engine, an amazing card, I would recommend throwing in more mana rocks like: Fellwar Stone, Izzet Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Talisman of Dominance to help you generate tons of mana to cast your entire hand.
Feel free to check out my list if you want some slightly different ideas, mine is control and reanimator.
