Bone Splinters Discussion

Hmm... Are you finding that you need 4 Culling the Weak? It seems like your curve is really low already and might not need that much ramp. You could maybe try going down to 2 and adding 2 Bone Splinters?

Really cool looking deck! If you feel like you need more removal, Bone Splinters seems like a perfect fit here :)

Couple suggestions from someone working on a similar deck:

Bone Splinters is great but swapping it for Spark Harvest lets you keep its ability while also allowing you to remove while you're flush with mana without sacrificing a creature.

Blood for Bones is good to kill a creature but Call of the Death-Dweller lets you bring back your creatures and turn Serrated Scorpion into a giant-killer with Deathtouch.

I would probably pull out Discordant Piper and sub in Bastion of Remembrance for the same sacrifice fodder plus it will leach life for every creature you lose. Another cool change to think about is Necropanther or Lurrus of the Dream-Den as a way to bring your creatures back over and over again. Nice work man, keep it up!

So i run something very similar in standard. Leyline of the Void is good sideboard against any graveyard based decks, plus its a free 2 devotion if its in your hand.

Nightmare Shepherd will give your Gray Merchant of Asphodel a second trigger when it dies.

While Dark Betrayal is nice to get that death trigger, Bone Splinters and Spark Harvest can give you that plus removal.

Kaya's Ghostform, Supernatural Stamina, and Undying Evil can also be used to retrigger Gary on death

You may also want to run one copy of Nyx Lotus

This deck looks great jvitag!! I have a few suggestions - I see that you run a lot of 3-drops. Maybe dropping a land or a few Woe Strider and adding more 1-drops like Footlight Fiend will help with the flow. And maybe some removal like Bone Splinters, Eliminate, or Bedevil in the main or sideboard will help deal with threats as you continue to whittle down the opponent’s life.

Oh, you should definitely take out Bone Splinters for Spark Harvest. Basically the same card except you can hit planeswalkers with Spark Harvest and you can alternately pay instead of sac'ing a creature!

jwong14 on Mono Black Midrange Recursion (Budget Friendly)

Well speaking of the devil, I was playing one of my friends yesterday, and low and behold, he was doing mono blavk reanimator/control! some of the cards he used (but weren't as budget friendly), were Slaughter Pact, Bone Splinters mainly for the sac, Kokusho, the Evening Star as the main win con, and some other cards that supported like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Chainer, Dementia Master. I know that these cards arent really budget, but if you ever wanna dump more money into this cash grab we call a game, then go for it!

I was thinking Deathpact Angel because it has a high CMC and doesn't seem very important to the deck's theme.

Pillory of the Sleepless is okay control but I think you have enough other control and life-loss cards in the deck that losing it wouldn't cause much harm.

Syndicate Messenger is okay, but it's a bit expensive for its Afterlife and flying. Of course, flying is always important in any deck, especially when you run white, but taking advantage of Afterlife in cheaper creatures (which create double the tokens with Teysa) fulfill that part of the deck. (Check out my deck for examples if you want)

Knight of Sorrows is also a little too expensive to be fairly valued for its Afterlife.

Karmic Guide is extremely expensive, especially with its echo cost, and only provides a bit of recursion.

I think it's fair to replace Yawgmoth's Vile Offering with Bone Splinters or Spark Harvest because they provide the same removal and Yawgmoth's Vile Offering only has one card of recursion more than they do and costs more to cast. You could also take out Utter End Vindicate, or Mortify for the similar reason of simply lowering your average CMC.

Also, Worn Powerstone is not a very good mana rock, but it's in for a totally different purpose than the cards I recommended so of course if you need that mana then keep it in.

Hope this was helpful! I really like your take on Teysa!
