Bontu's Monument Discussion

I can see why people would rage quit- this is a mighty fine list.

Might I suggest adding more artifact ramp and Paradox Engine? You can bring out some brutal combos quite quickly with access to near-unlimited tutoring. Saffi Eriksdotter, Bow of Nylea, and Bontu's Monument combo with the Engine and enough mana rocks to produce 1 colorless, 2 green, and one white. If you play your cards right, you can get all of these down on the field in the same turn since Saffi, the bow, and Bontu's Monument are all legendary. Sac Saffi, activate the bow to put Saffi back in the library, tutor with Sisay, play Saffi, untap everything. Each time you play Saffi, each opponent loses a life and you gain one.

Your list doesn't need it, but it'd be a cool wincon to add if you ever wanted to. Good luck!

Murphy77 So I like the ideas but Dusk Legion Zealot is just Elvish Visionary the card is really good for this deck, especially with Bontu's Monument.

As for Tomb Robber I don't understand how that is a sac outlet, but Tomb Robber is a nice way to pitch extra lands, or copies of our legendary cards, or even Oathsworn Vampire. That is actually worth trying possibly in Live Fast place.

I like the number of Fatal Push and Ravenous Chupacabra removal is very heavily needed. Recover is an interesting idea for sure I think I could make room for it somewhere.

As for Dead Man's Chest That is an interesting one as well that would need some testing. I'm about to change around some of the cards with your idea's and see how it looks.

Hi! Some thoughts:

Your curve is really high. You should probably add more ramp like Cabal Coffers, Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers, Solemn Simulacrum, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive and Bontu's Monument

Additionally, you'll want some ways to get your creatures into the graveyard. Buried Alive and Entomb.

Hope some of that helps!

Last one I promise...

Oathsworn Vampire goes infinite with your Bontu's Monument and Phyrexian Altar

Cast Oathsworn with the Monument on the field, then sac it with the Altar for BLACK mana to recast Oathsworn from your grave for infinite BLEED effect and infinite sacrofice for your commander

Haha. Funny that you mention that. That is how I had it before, but chose Bontu's Monument because it does allow for more drain, but it also lowers the curve more effectively due to the higher costed creatures being black.

Perhaps Im going against the intended way to win, but adding Bontu's Monument would create a combo with Thrumming Stone once you start rippling the rats.

@Atroxreaper maybe you misread Bontu's Monument + Oathsworn Vampire
