Bloodchief Ascension

Enchantment

At the beginning of each end step, if an opponent lost 2 or more life this turn, you may put a quest counter on Bloodchief Ascension. (Damage causes loss of life.)

Whenever a card is put into an opponent's graveyard from anywhere, if Bloodchief Ascension has three or more quest counters on it, you may have that player lose 2 life. If you do, you gain 2 life.

Where's your Bloodchief Ascension? (see Mindcrank) (Duskmantle Guildmage also works)

ShreddedByCrows I love your suggestions. I don't play a lot of creatures because I wanted a different deck than the whole creature based shenanigans.

You are right about the Magus of the Coffers, I will be replacing him with Doubling Cube. And Choices of Damnation with Extraplanar Lens. Note to self, change lands to the 'Snow-Covered' versions.

The deck seems to teeter to the suicidal, so the Consume Spirit, Soul Burn, and Drain Life are in there to most offset that loss of life.

Curse of the Cabal will be coming out for Alhammarret's Archive.

Phyrexian Obliterator is great and I will be placing him in replacing All Is Dust.

Lich's Mastery works well with Bloodchief Ascension, Exquisite Blood, Consume Spirit, Soul Burn, Drain Life, Exsanguinate, and lastly, Maga, Traitor to Mortals. However, with that being sad, I believe I need Reliquary Tower.

I like this deck; I'd recommend some changes though. Adding some more mana rocks and/or other ramp options helps this deck's speed a bit. Cards like Sol Ring, Jet Medallion, Thought Vessel, Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual could be considered.

You already have some nice draw options, but in mono-black I usually go for Underworld Connections and/or Phyrexian Arena no matter what other options I have, because these are so reliable; they don't require you to do anything in order to work.

Hymn to Tourach and Mind Twist are great discard spells. Paupers' Cage, Rackling, Wheel of Torture and The Rack all have great potential to damage opponents for having too few cards in their hands. Bloodchief Ascension and Painful Quandary are especially powerful in a deck like this.

Hope any of this helps; good luck brewing and playing!

Bloodchief Ascension - once it has three counters, it combos with Mindcrank

Chasm Skulker would be a fun addition.

Mindcrank will help get rid of libraries, and it combos nicely with Bloodchief Ascension.

Will you check out my Nekusar deck? I liken it more to a Group Hug since I don't force discards, but I usually win due to infect.

Yes I've built it several times. It's fun. But you need lots of mana for it to be fun. It's a tier 3 CMDR at best. You'll need lots of good ramp. Like mana doublers. Caged Sun, and Extraplanar Lens. You need to focus on what black does best when considering mana ramp. Cabal Coffers, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, and Crypt Ghast. utilize the fact that you'll be mono black so cards like. Nightmare Lash, Lashwrithe, and Strata Scythe. You need big finishers that use big mana. Exsanguinate, and Torment of Hailfire. You'll want to try to have a few ways to stay in control early. Royal Assassin creatures, and some deathtouch creatures. You'll be killing selected creatures so Mimic Vat it good here. You want to make your CMDR more effective, so you'll want Illusionist's Bracers, and Rings of Brighthearth to copy Kalitas's effect throw in Basalt Monolith to make infinite colorless mana when paired up with the Rings of Brighthearth. You'll want to have Grave Betrayal as well this pairs up well with Kalitas. You are gonna need Command Beacon because if and when Kalitas dies. It will be hard recasting her after she dies 1 or 2 times. And you can do a reanimation theme as well where you can pick from graves at will with cards like Animate Dead, Rise from the Grave, Rise of the Dark Realms, and Fated Return. You'll need your basic edh packages. The Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Burnished Hart, Gilded Lotus ramp package. About 4 board wipes. Decree of Pain, Archfiend of Depravity, Black Sun's Zenith, Mutilate. You'll need some other targeted removal and control. Withering Boon to stop etb effects that might threaten you, Imp's Mischief to redirect targeted spells. Sadistic Sacrament for the combo decks. And Praetor's Grasp for the same, or use it to grab a mana rock. Then throw in some strong combos that mono black does well. Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension or Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond. Along with a few other good ones. And some one shot heavy hitters. Like Sorin Markov, Tree of Perdition, and Blood Tribute. Follow the guidelines and you'll have a solid deck.
