Vedalken Certarch But you probs wont have the craft for it.

Rimewind Taskmage But 4 snow may be late to get.

Stonybrook Angler But paying 2 to tap a critter isnt really playable.

Thx for the comments guys, very much appreciated! :D

Gadianten I considered Army of the Damned but I honestly did not like it in here, it would create too many Zombies. Divine Reckoning , Deep Analysis and Big Game Hunter are really cool, I will consider it. The other cards are have been considered already, but as I mentioned I don't like to play Tutors or too many reanimator effects.

Skulloelegy Wow I did not know this existed, thank you I will add it immediately!

Dark Impostor is another removal spell on a stick that exiles the creature it targeted as well as gains its activated abilites, all for low CMC and low $. Same goes for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief but she powers herself up for a quicker kill. Guul Draz Assassin and Big Game Hunter also fit into this category.

For single target kill spells: Sever the Bloodline is a bit overcosted for most targets but is a pretty good token killer, Price of Fame is cheap enough if targeting opposing commanders and lets you dig through your library looking for answers. Tragic Slip is low CMC and can be a way around indestructible.

For mass removal, Mutilate and Black Sun's Zenith are inexpensive options. Nevinyrral's Disk can wipe the board of both artifacts and enchantments which black flat out has no real way to directly deal with.

But one of black's specialties is getting opponents to sac their owns permanents, especially creatures: Gatekeeper of Malakir , Chainer's Edict , Geth's Verdict , Plaguecrafter , Slum Reaper , Fleshbag Marauder , Diabolic Edict

For some additional artifact ramp: Charcoal Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Hedron Archive Unstable Obelisk with the Obelisk doubling as 'hit anything' removal and the Stone and Archive being some card draw as well.

...which leads into more card draw: Phyrexian Arena for steady card draw, Necrologia for that rush of cards.

For mono black Cabal Stronghold is a cheap option to gain extra mana late game.

I didn't price check everything listed above but nothing there should be too outrageously priced.

Some of those definitely seem like direct upgrades. I think I'll keep Underworld Connections , Profane Procession  Flip and Oathsworn Vampire for now, as their replacements a little pricey.

Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Nirkana Revenant , Patron of the Vein , Big Game Hunter are great additions, will look to pick these up I think. Tragic Poet is just in there as a reusable way of getting back enchantments, maybe it's unnecessary.

Thanks for the tip on the screen name, didn't realise it would be an issue. And again, thanks for the help.

No trouble!

Personally, I don't like the rate on Banewhip Punisher , Oathsworn Vampire (It's just really bad Bloodghast ), Sadistic Skymarcher , Tragic Poet , Foul-Tongue Shriek , Chalice of Life  Flip, Fountain of Renewal , Bishop of the Bloodstained (Anthems and Sanctum Seeker will just be a lot more damage over the course of a game), Ravenous Chupacabra , Profane Procession  Flip, or Underworld Connections . They're all just very low impact in a 40-life, 4-player format, with the exception of the last two. Profane Procession  Flip is just so much more expensive than something like Rise of the Dark Realms , and while you're not the first person I've talked to who seems to think Underworld Connections is an acceptable substitute for Phyrexian Arena , man is it ever worse.

I don't like the rate on Call the Bloodline , either, unless you want to go deeper on a Madness or Reanimator theme, which could work, since you might want Voldaren Pariah  Flip, anyway. If you did that, Call to the Netherworld gets back Elenda, Big Game Hunter is a nice replacement for Banewhip Punisher , Bishop of Rebirth could be decent, and bigger vamps like Nirkana Revenant , Patron of the Vein , Necropolis Regent , Guul Draz Overseer , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , and Butcher of Malakir become much more attractive. That would require a lot of changes, though. You could keep Profane Procession  Flip and get a lot more out of Crypt of Agadeem that way, though, so maybe don't rule it out.

try this: Exil-Flicker (Legacy). many hidden combos in there.. most versatile sideboard options and therefore a very powerful but underestimated legacy-deck in existence as far as I can tell. cards are scarce, combos not.

Agent of the Fates + Flickering Ward

Parallax Wave + Disenchant

Eldrazi Displacer + Flickerwisp

Eldrazi Displacer + Containment Priest

Eldrazi Displacer + Big Game Hunter

Eldrazi Displacer + Royal Assassin

Admonition Angel + Flagstones of Trokair + Ghost Quarter

Big Game Hunter is an obscure option as well if you go the madness route. I'm using one on my sideboard right now because he's good against Gurmag Angler decks and good with Liliana of the Veil.
