Beseech the Queen Discussion

PauperPower on Mono-Black Control Commander

Mutilate could be a great card for you. Maybe Sudden Spoiling, Go for the Throat, and Profane Command.

I would recommend some ramp like Caged Sun Sol Ring Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo.

I also like Beseech the Queen and Dark Petition in mono black.

I tried to keep my suggestions budget friendly. Welcome to EDH, its a ton of fun brewing and building in this format. Have fun with it!

First lets work on the mana base, that's black's strongest power...

Remove... Barren Moor, Everglades, and Polluted Mire. You need swamps. Speaking of swamps....

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Vesuva, Thespian's Stage and Deserted Temple are your best friends. Urborg makes everything a swamp and cabal coffers, unlike cabal stronghold gives u for every swamp you control, not basic swamp. Vesuva and thespians stage copy urborg or any land you want. Deserted temple untaps cabal coffers and stronghold.

other potential, but not necessary additions can include the following...

Blue troubles? Cavern of Souls/Boseiju, Who Shelters All.

Gaea's cradle making too much mana? Strip Mine, Wasteland and other cheaper LD alternatives.

Expedition Map to find your lands.

You DESPERATELY need artifact/enchantment removal. This can be done through All Is Dust, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated, Nevinyrral's Disk, Oblivion Stone, Scour from Existence Ratchet Bomb and Spine of Ish Sah.

Bonus point: Spine + Trading Post = Repeatable removal. Trading post can help you discard horrible cards you got with erebos to gain life to draw more cards, discard a creature to reanimate later. Creature a chump blocker. Artifact recursion and sac outlet for both creatures and artifacts so they dont get exiled.

Want to be rude? Bitterblossom + Contamination. You can also use Reassembling Skeleton or even trading post tokens to feed contamination.

Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor or the cheap Beseech the Queen can help you improve consistency. Blacks biggest strengths are coffers and tutors, please use and abuse them to your heart's content.

Mind Twist - Best discard spell imo

Imp's Mischief - SUPER UTILITY. Redirect's counterspells to imp's mischief to save your torment of hailfire you spent 20 mana into. Redirect some extra turn spells that target, redirect path....and best of all no one expects it from the black player.

Blue players/instant speed interaction giving you issues? Add Mana Web with urborg to make them tap out always (unless they have rocks or dorks).

A funny idea could be to add Soul Conduit or Mirror Universe to switch life totals since black operates out of life loss. If you add Necropotence (or rather when you do), you can bring yourself to one life and switch with your opponent. Necropotence also has high synergy with vensers journal. Pay life, draw cards, gain life draw cards... necro can be used for redundancy with ur commander in case someone uses nevermore or declaration of naught.

Hero's Downfall for PW removal.

Alhammarret's Archive - For extra card draw.

Thats enough for now. Proxy whatever you cant buy or want to try out. I have several ideas for cuts if you're interested. Cheers!

Ravenrose Thank you for your suggestions! I'll have a proper look at them when I have more time but currently the only one I would potentially consider adding is Blood Sun, but even then my play group doesn't usually have any lands which do anything other than tap for mana.

Obliterate and Wave of Vitriol would go against my gameplan I feel, the reason I have Armageddon is so once I've got a stax lock on board I can destroy all lands and prevent anyone from playing anything to get through my lock, the two cards you mentioned would simply wipe out my lock as well and thus help my opponents more than myself.

Diabolic Tutor was originally in the deck, but Beseech the Queen has taken its spot as I simply feel it is slightly better. The Great Aurora is too mana intensive in this deck and has the same issue as Waves of Vitriol and Obliterate, and Polukranos and Hydra Omnivore don't really do enough once they enter to effect the rest of the board. Again, this is just my opinion though but thank you so much for you advice on this deck I really appreciate it! :)

SynergyBuild the only problem I have with some of those tutors is that they're too expensive for me. I can slip in Beseech the Queen, but Grim Tutor and Imperial Seal are too expensive. I'm going to eventually add in Idyllic Tutor, but the others are just far too much for me. Thanks for the suggestions! Honestly forgot about some of those cards!

+1! Love the deck!

Consider Idyllic Tutor, Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, and Beseech the Queen for fetching Darkest Hour.

Geth's Verdict will do the last damage.. seems like you need to do two damage with Reduce in Stature though.. they just printed a black lightning helix... just a thought.. i like Duress in my black decks personally. also, i like Phyrexian Arena more than Beseech the Queen. that is also coming from my experience playing mono black.
