Bontu's Monument Discussion

SynergyBuild on Rat Swarm

For the rotation, do you think more Cast Down could help over Fatal Push, and though Secret Salvage and Bontu's Monument are out of the picture, another Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, Thought Erasure, and more Rat Colonys could fill out the mainboard, Watery Graves also help out the landbase.

Supernatural Stamina, Lost Legacy, and The Scarab God are out of the sideboard, but Unmoored Ego and Doom Whisperer fill two of those roles well, and you can probably find another replacement for Supernatural Stamina.

At that point, this deck is worse as far as combo, but better for tempo!

Nah, Gaddock Teeg stops how many decks? What some storm payoffs like Aetherflux Reservoir? so it'll make Zur the Enchanter use a Snap on it on combo turn, big deal.

Really it sometimes hurts Captain Sisay's Paradox Engine and Teferi, Temporal Archmage's The Chain Veil occasionally, and most decks have good long-game and don't need to combo out immediately, waiting to remove it.

What decks do they need to stop? Protean Hulk, Hermit Druid, The Gitrog Monster, all 'when this creature dies' triggers, Most Pod lines with Karmic Guide, all of the reanimator/Worldgorger Dragon lines, like Kess Twin with their silly Intuition for Laboratory Maniac, Demonic Consultation & Reanimate or Buried Alive for Phyrexian Delver, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Deceiver Exarch. It hurts so much of the fast-combo decks, and is in incredible hatebears colors, I don't think it is just 'on par' with Gaddock Teeg, Gaddock Teeg would have to be lucky to be 'on par' with Anafenza, the Foremost.

Oh yeah, with Captain Sisay, Anafenza, the Foremost also shuts down the main Paradox Engine, Bontu's Monument, Mikaeus, the Lunarch/Saffi Eriksdotter, Captain Sisay, Bow of Nylea line for infinite damage by constantly recasting Mikaeus, the Lunarch/Saffi Eriksdotter from recurring it.

On the show where they did the deck tech for this, they talked about adding more Shadowborn Apostles. like 30 or 32, but what do you take out? say you want 30, then you take out Bontu's Monument and what Zulaport Cutthroat? I would take those out, but also take 2 more out and add Falkenrath Noble & Westvale Abbey  Flip (Ormendahl, Profane Prince), but which 2, that is the question. also, Archfiend of Dispair is a great addition, I agree, but only vs lifegain decks, otherwise it doesn't really matter. Teysa, Orzhov Scion like before mentioned in comments here is fantastic.

I think I'd just want more draw spells here. You've only got 5-6 ways of drawing and I want at least 8 in all my decks. You've got a lot of cheap rats: it seems like it wouldn't be difficult to run out of steam. Also, I think you have too many single target kill-spells, especially since you can tutor one up if you're in dire need. I think I like them less that other people in the playgroup: I know Matt advocates for a full 8, but Prossh has so many ways of getting value and is so often the first target that he needs them way more than this deck does.

Suggestions:

Mausoleum Secrets (seems like it's about as good as it gets in this deck. I like it more the Diabolic Tutor.

I like Mind Stone and Fellwar Stone more than Charcoal Diamond

Bontu's Monument also seems kinda awesome here.

All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.

Add the following Lands. They will trigger Regna, the Redeemer the turn she comes into play.
Blighted Steppe
Scoured Barrens
Seraph Sanctuary
Springjack Pasture
Kabira Crossroads

Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)

Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board

Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.

Create Mana
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.

You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.

Your enchantments are good.

Artifacts should be replaced with mana rocks or mana reduction effects like Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, Oketra's Monument, and Bontu's Monument.

Cabal Coffers is a nice land.

Vraska's Contempt, Hero's Downfall, Doom Blade, Victim of Night, and Go for the Throat is good removal.

Kindred Dominance is good for your spirits. Bontu's Monument and other cards like it would be good as well.
