Bile Blight Discussion

Scytec on Grixis Control

Looks like you've done your homework. I'm always a fan of strong grixis decks. Good work. I know it's not incredibly popular, but Drown in Sorrow and Bile Blight are both understated in my meta, have you considered these?

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of deckbuilding mono-black tools.

Shrieking Affliction is a cheap rack alternative. Geier Reach Sanitarium can slot in place of a couple of swamps with low cost.

I don't like Tormented Soul outside of spirit tribal, If you love it you should run Lashwrithe and Will-o'-the-Wisp. Mental Agony costs too much mana. Blackmail, Mire's Toll etc and some Sign in Blood/Night's Whisper just runs smoother.

If you absolutely must have consistant draw and Phyrexian Arena is off the table Underworld Connections exists, but just running a bunch of Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood works very well.

My favourite discard spell is Delirium Skeins, which combos neatly with Asylum Visitor. With the symetrical discard plan, you get access to the hella fun Call the Bloodline and Zombie Infestation, alongside madness tools.

The big thing budget mono-black has going for it is cheap, powerful sideboard tools. Mutilate, Languish, Storage Matrix, Witchbane Orb, Bile Blight, Lost Legacy etc.

Hi firemen138

Necrogen Mists is budget friendly and essentially ensures an ongoing discard effect. You aren't running any creatures so you might want a board wipe Bontu's Last Reckoning or Mutilate at a push maybe Drown in Sorrow or Bile Blight. You also want Ratchet Bomb in your sideboard to try and deal with Leyline of Sanctity and other problem enchantments or artifacts.

I hope this is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Korlash here is my mono black deck. still working on mine too. i would take out Archfiend of Depravity for sure. Bile Blight i also do not like. Smother tickles my fancy.

Hi Terzerk

This looks like a fun deck, limited only by it's reliance on Hunted Phantasm, even allowing for Forbidden Orchard. Your opponent is likely to be playing creatures anyway, so some damage/life gain will occur without the Phantasm, but maybe something like Genesis Chamber could help increase it? I'd also recommend some number of Bile Blight, it can equally clear tokens but it could also be used to kill something else.

As I said I like the idea behind this deck, so have a +1 and good luck with your brew.

The ideia is to clean the board.

In a matchup against decks with a lot of removals, you may not have any creature on board, so Languish will be better than Bile Blight.

Btw kalitas with 2 counters, erebos and the demon won't die.

Against tokens -> Bile Blight

Agahdaur funny you mention 8-rack bc that's the deck I was trying to build before this one. I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Do you think I could get away with Bile Blight in my sb instead of Languish to protect my creatures?

In the context of modern, mono black devotion, control, aggro all have issues with Affinity and Tron. Starting there I'd recommend against Go for the Throat, in mono-black on a budget use Victim of Night, Smother or Grasp of Darkness and if your not on a budget Fatal Push. You also want some form of land disruption, now that can be in the form of; Ghost Quarter, Contaminated Ground, Rain of Tears or using discard Blackmail & Mire's Toll, players tend to forget those two discard spells do not have the non-land clause.

In a more casual context I like to play to the unexpected Dash Hopes Imp's Mischief and Temporal Extortion are all fun, but the only one that has ever really appeared in Modern proper is Imp's Mischief. I'd also say you want access to Bile Blight, this can clear token based strategies...

I have played a similar deck on and off Casually/FNM for a while, see Sweet (black) devotion as it may give you a few ideas. I hope this was of help.
