Beseech the Queen Discussion

DarkHero on Yawgmoth in my meta

As others have said, you should be in good shape. Mono Black can be very easy to run on budget, excellent at creature removal, and can find ways to out tempo ramp decks.

Victim of Night , Doom Blade , Go for the Throat , and Murder are all fantastic removal on a budget.

I wouldn't worry about blocking ramp as much as I would focus on creating it in your own way. Along the lines Dark Ritual or Artifacts. Cabal Stronghold is the budget alternative to Cabal Coffers . Crypt Ghast might be slightly out of budget, but does the job of Nirkana Revenant somewhat cheaper. I'm a huge fan of Life's Finale , which is criminally underplayed and pretty budget, especially in a meta that isn't in their own graveyards too much. It's always good to have a boardwipe or 2 on deck, but I find mono black can get quite a lot done with spot removal, and that is far easier on a budget. You already have Damnation when you need it. Black Sun's Zenith is also an option because you can proliferate the counters later. Lashwrithe and/or Nightmare Lash are good and not expensive. Disciple of the Vault is again criminally underplayed if you want to go that route. Get yourself some cheap tutors cause thats Black's go to. Diabolic Tutor , Scheming Symmetry , Beseech the Queen are the best budget options. Card draw is a must, and you get Sign in Blood , Read the Bones , and a host of other cheap draw spells to go along with you Phyrexian Arena .

And I hate to be that guy, but infect is pretty budget, on theme, and works wonders even if you just splash it as a win con. Tainted Strike Plague Myr Ichor Rats . You can then use your Commander to pay and discard a card a few times to win.

Black has a ton of options even on a budget. Just depends which way you want to go.

Hi there dude!

I love the idea behind your cEdh! Taigam, Sidisi's Hand is such a underdog! Since this is a budget version you are looking for, I would consider to have more cycle\cantrips effects.

HF! Good luck in your future games <3

Cheap cards u should get some amount of:

General value goodstuff:

Bloodsoaked Champion

Grim Haruspex

Midnight Reaper

Ophiomancer

Zulaport Cutthroat

Westvale Abbey  Flip (you're gonna love this one, it's especially good if you like having token generators)

Skullclamp (probably the most powerful equipment in the game. And drawing cards is fucking awesome)

Removal:

Swords to Plowshares

Plaguecrafter

Kaya's Wrath

Anguished Unmaking

Grave Pact

Reanimation (very good when you're actively putting cards from your deck into your graveyard):

Dread Return

Karmic Guide

Reveillark

Phyrexian Delver

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip

Victimize

Animate Dead

Sac outlets:

Viscera Seer

Carrion Feeder

Cartel Aristocrat

Yahenni, Undying Partisan

High Market

Tutors:

Ranger of Eos

Diabolic Intent

Enlightened Tutor

Beseech the Queen

Dark Petition

Mausoleum Secrets (very cool in your deck)

Lands:

Orzhov Basilica

Scoured Barrens

Concealed Courtyard

Command Tower

Caves of Koilos

City of Brass

Isolated Chapel

Tainted Field

You should probably choose whether you want the deck to be more or less focused on tokens. If you don't want tokens to be a main theme, you should probably just run Ophiomancer and a couple other generators and put in more reanimation effects like Phyrexian Delver .

You should still run Karmic Guide and Reveillark no matter what you do because they're too good not to. With a sac outlet, you can sacrifice them and bring them back an infinite number of times and kill your opponents with Komrade.

I would run quite a few sac outlets to make sure you can keep sacrificing your stuff for value. The best ones are Viscera Seer , Carrion Feeder and Cartel Aristocrat . Skullclamp works especially well with sac outlets

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hey realsoupersand,

How do you feel about Chains of Mephistopheles , shuts down the card advantage of draw, but still lets the search through their library. Mass draw like Enter the Infinite wield yield very little result. It's also a way for me to discard a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Worldgorger Dragon (or any combo guys) if they are in my hand for CMC2?

Beseech the Queen can be a CMC3 tutor which is still reasonable, but has a restriction against it bound by lands, but I always need Reanimate or Animate Dead likely pulls those no problem?

Mishra's Bauble , doesn't help for T1 win, however, it makes T2 better, also, it's a CMC0 that may support getting Mox Opal in there? What do you think?

Crucible of Worlds always feels too slow, CMC3, and no MLD seems advantageous, but with a fetch land, it ramps pretty good? Still too slow though.

I don't know what your budget it is or how optimized you want this deck but immediate suggestions are a few tutors at the least. Diabolic Tutor is the cheap everyone goes for until they get better ones. Beseech the Queen isn't bad either. There's also Diabolic Intent , Demonic Tutor , Dark Petition , Vampiric Tutor , Diabolic Revelation , and more.

If you are playing with death triggers and things dying some good options are Debtors' Knell , Sheoldred, Whispering One , Black Market , and whatnot. Also, you have white! Use Swords to Plowshares ! I'd keep Merciless Eviction as it is a wonderful board wipe but also consider Hour of Revelation . Other good cards are like Anguished Unmaking , Utter End , and Vindicate .

No tutors? Depending on budgets/styles you can go with Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation , Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Dark Petition , Increasing Ambition , Beseech the Queen and probably more. I use Revelation with two others and if I generate enough mana, I can Elixir of Immortality back my old tutors and use Revelation to search them back out along with the Elixir plus whatever else I want.

As for board wipes I'd recommend at least a Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation just to make sure you can wipe a board clean and nice. Also, Merciless Eviction is strong when someone starts making things indestructible or you need to remove a specific type of problem off the table.

Fun enchantments like Black Market can also fetch you quite a bit of mana.

First thing I'll suggest additions

  • mana ramp: Lotus Cobra - land etb you add one mana of any color - pushes your ramp faster

Amulet of Vigor - if a permanent you control etbs tapped, untap it. Not only ramps you faster, but gets past those pesky all your things come in tapped crud.

Exploration - you may play an additional land each turn, only . Very few things are more satisfying than having 7 lands turn 3 while everyone else is just putting down their third land.

Boundless Realms - search for as many basic lands as lands you control

Scapeshift - search for as many lands (basic or not) as you sacrifice

Kodama's Reach - you need a bunch of ramp spells to act with in case you don't have lord windgrace or he becomes too expensive to cast

Demonic Tutor - search your library for a card

Vampiric Tutor - search your library for a card

Beseech the Queen - search your library for a card

Summoner's Pact - pay or lose at your upkeep

Chord of Calling - search for or less CMC creature

Tooth and Nail - search for two creatures or put two creatures onto the battlefield from your hand

Rude Awakening - all lands you control become 2/2 creatures or you untap all lands or both

three of the five panoramas: The other two only fetch you one of the lands

Jund Panorama - search for any of the three basic land types you need

Grixis Panorama - search for swamp or mountain

Naya Panorama - search for mountain or forest

three of the temples:

Temple of Malady - BG scry 1.

Temple of Malice - BR scry 1.

Temple of Abandon - GR scry 1.

Things to do with

Fireball - x damage to creature or player

Crater's Claws - x damage to creature or player

Rolling Thunder - x damage to creature or player - can do more targets

Banefire - x damage to creature or player

Bonfire of the Damned xx to do x damage to tgt player and each creature he controls

Torment of Hailfire - choice of losing 3 life, sacrifice a nonland permanent, or discard a card - hilarious for huge numbers of x, and can swing the game beyond anyone recovering

Consume Spirit - x loss of life and x gain of life for you

Suffer the Past - x loss of life for x exiled cards from tgt player's graveyard. Kills their recursion and them

Dark Salvation - xx for x zombies and making a creature -x/-x until end of turn.

SideBae, Wow, this is immensely helpful! thank you tons! I do have a few questions/explanations/comments though;

I see your point about having too many combos/win conditions, the reason I bring it up is that I've been having some consistency issues, and I've been hoping to improve it from slightly janky to viable in my playgroup, once I get it assembled.

Tidespout Tyrant is a powerful card, but if you don't mind pointing out how it helps my combo?

Buried Alive is one that I hadn't been considering for some odd reason, so thanks! Dance of the Dead is another reanimation enchantment that I appreciate you bringing to my attention!

I agree about the tutor suite, and I like Dark Petition , Diabolic Tutor and Beseech the Queen !

I'll be sure to add some counterspells like Dovin's Veto as well!

One last overall question, what would you cut from the deck to make way for better cards you suggested?

All in all, though, I really appreciate everything! Esper is my favorite color combination in MTG, and I think with some modification, this deck could end up doing quite well!
