Wow love it! I'll try to get this together for next year's Halloween i think. Have you considered Read the Bones , Skeletal Scrying , or Black Cat ?

Mind Shatter and Black Cat are also something to consider.

Switch Last Gasp with Dismember

Shrieking Affliction and The Rack are what defines this archetype "8-Rack" and they are staples as 4-ofs for a good reason.

KibaAlpha Thanks, i took a look and there are some cards that i find interesting, mainly as sac material because i think i neeed some more and also better ones. I might change Dutiful Attendant for Orzhov Enforcer and Black Cat for Martyr of Dusk . It also makes me consider even more changing Shadows of the Past for Falkenrath Noble since i was considering that already.

Wickedly evocative. One of those theme decks where it's fun just to look at the decklist and see various creative ideas like Black Cat or Read the Bones or Rites of Flourishing !

a riff on Black Cat :

House Skulker

Creature - Zombie Cat

When House Skulker dies, target opponent reveals their hand. You choose a card from it. That player discards that card. If they reveal no cards, they sacrifice a permanent at random.

2/1


I'd like a Bear for an Ayula, Queen Among Bears deck!

Mana Vault on turn one allows you to cast your general turn two. I imagine one of the challenges with this general is his costing 5, as lack of access to another color means your options for ramp are rather limited. By the same token, Charcoal Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Chrome Mox and the Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth combo are your friends as well.

Nausea is good for you, as it gives you a way to kill off a bunch of little creatures and rebuy their ETB triggers. As Non-Linear points out, Grave Pact is good in your deck. Nausea makes it into a one-sided board wipe.

God-Eternal Bontu seems kind of absurd, with all them creatures you can feed him. With all the sac-ing you're likely to be doing, you might have luck with Harvester of Souls .

I see Demonic Tutor is in your 'Maybeboard.' I feel that this should be in the main deck of any black EDH deck if at all possible. It simply gets whatever you need more efficiently than anything else can.

Qarsi Sadist allows you to drain an opponent for two at each end step, if you have it exploit itself each time and Shirei stays on the board.

Night of Souls' Betrayal is an interesting thought. With a carful build, it could probably bust the deck wide open, as it auto kills each 1/1 and then brings them right back each end step. Pairing it with something like Burglar Rat , Skyscanner , Pilgrim's Eye , Black Cat or other such creatures seems simply rude as ****.

Finally, regarding the lands, I haven't had much luck with Crypt of Agadeem . You might want to replace that, Mortuary Mire and Memorial to Folly with basic lands. I also don't think Ghost Quarter is very good in EDH, unless your meta plays some powerful utility lands like The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or Glacial Chasm . Ancient Tomb is a better Temple of the False God , but it is a more expensive card.

5dollarMTG, those are good suggestions. I have played this deck a few times now and it's a lot of fun to play in its current form (as long as the other player doesn't have a lot of counter spells...) but adding those in would help for sure! Thinking about replacing the Black Cat cards with 2X Vicious Offering and 2X Disfigure as the cats really don't do much for the deck.
