Bubbling Muck Discussion

Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Grim Haruspex , etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:

Other cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting (no order):

I second the use of Ghoulcaller Gisa to create more tokens. Sac one Eldrazi, and she makes a bundle of tokens.

A ramp spell you might consider trying is Bubbling Muck . It has a better ceiling than Dark Ritual does. Another option that fits with sacrificing creatures is Culling the Weak . Not as strong as the Muck, but still an option.

I know I've mentioned this before, but I think you should add Volrath the Fallen to the 99. You can discard SEVERAL Eldrazi to his ability, making him really HUGE, swinging in for nasty amounts of damage. He does what you want; pitch Eldrazi, and attack with big creatures. And remember, he stepped out, he did not step down! :D

Love the deck, and I love mono black. I think Whisper, Blood Liturgist is an especially strong card. +1.

Saw your post on /r/edh. I've been tweaking a casual mono-black Belzenlok for a while now (...bascially Necrologia -on-a-commander into every version of Rise of the Dark Realms ).

Chainer's game plan should be something like... Ramp > Control > Reanimate.

Focus on filling and stealing from your opponents' graveyards and protecting Chainer.

Stax: Honestly, I would avoid hard stax. It encourages your opponents to hate you and escalate their power-level.

What this deck really needs is ramp: 38-40 lands and 12-16 cards like Bubbling Muck , Charcoal Diamond , Heartless Summoning , Burnished Hart , Coalition Relic , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Magus of the Coffers , Gauntlet of Power , Nirkana Revenant , etc. Also Phyrexian Tower .

I'd recommend Dark Deal and Ward of Bones as soft stax. The first fits right into your game plan and the second is pretty clutch vs. artifacts and enchantments.

Board wipes like Boompile , Nevinyrral's Disk , Coercive Portal , Perilous Vault are very necessary in mono-black because they are some of the only ways to deal with artifacts and enchantments.

...If you want to lean into stax... here's a list for evil people :)

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math

I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:

Mana Crypt pricey but spicey

Charcoal Diamond goes so well with Sol Ring

Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia - especially if you somehow get more proliferate

Extraplanar Lens

Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are good if you want double-down on sacrificing your own creatures.

Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck

Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)

Deserted Temple , Vesuva , Candelabra of Tawnos and Thespian's Stage to double-down on Cabal Coffers.

Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.

Expedition Map and/or Wayfarer's Bauble to tutor itfor all your powerful lands.

I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.

Other mono ramp

I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.

Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all

Magus of the Coffers is slow, but might be worth it. Crypt Ghast is a better version.

Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are good in any deck that sacrifices often

Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck

Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses

I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix

Priest of Yawgmoth and Soldevi Adnate work if you hate your own stuff

Leaden Myr , Hedron Crawler , Manakin , Scuttlemutt , Alloy Myr , Opaline Unicorn , Palladium Myr are usually worse than rocks, but maybe you want?

Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black

Sol Ring every edh deck should include this

Star Compass , Fellwar Stone , Fractured Powerstone , Mind Stone all fill similar voids

Thran Dynamo , Ur-Golem's Eye , Worn Powerstone , Gilded Lotus , Hedron Archive , Sisay's Ring

Pillar of Origins for tribal decks

Consider Pentad Prism , Kyren Toy , or Coalition Relic for proliferate

In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment  Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern

Thought Vessel if you fill your hand

Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage

Lotus Bloom , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , Grim Monolith , and Lotus Petal for explosive potential

Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out

Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing

Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts

Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures

Caged Sun , Doubling Cube , and Gauntlet of Power are fair if you want to reach that high mana

Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game

Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not

Jet Medallion and Heartless Summoning do a lot of work if you play many cards in a turn

Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos

These mostly work for combo/explosive turns

Bubbling Muck for explosive/combo turns

Dark Ritual for getting a turn 2 Crypt Ghast , etc.

Sacrifice and Culling the Weak for sacrificing. They go nicely with Songs of the Damned

Spoils of Evil for lategame combos

Rain of Filth must be used with caution

Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard

Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures

Cabal Coffers is a staple

It's porbably unnessecary, but if you end up with few basic swamps, consider Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to supplement your Cabal Coffers .

Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.

McToters on Tymaret, the Duke of Death

Looks like SideBae has mentioned most of the really great advice so far, a majority of it regarding strict upgrades to cards you have in the deck like Ancient Tomb over Temple of the False God . This is good advice but I would recommend that if you don’t have the cash to get your hands in the more expensive, strict upgrades that those can be done at a later stage. I think you should follow Sidebae’s advice more attuned with putting in totally new cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos because these are cards you should be running with a sac outlet as a commander. Once you figure out the direction of the deck, then the strict cash-money upgrades can be made for the cheaper alternatives you may have in place.

I’s say the two biggest cards other than Gravepact and Dictate of Erebos that you shiukd be running are Conspiracy and/or Ashes of the Fallen . These cards will allow you to run a less strict zombie creature collection but will count those creatures as zombies anyway (if you were running blue Arcane Adaptation is the best card for this).

I definitely agree with SideBae regarding the zombie creatures, the removal, and the looting. I would recommend running Vandalblast specifically, maybe even something like Aura Barbs to smack opponents around for using enchantments. I would highly recommend Blood Moon for more control.

As far as the looting goes definitely Faithless Looting , Reforge the Soul , and Wheel of Fate as all cheaper alts to Wheel of Fortune . Burning Inquiry is decent too.

Crypt Ghast and Bubbling Muck for mana boosters. Also, Mana Flare or Braid of Fire perhaps—-although the latter will only help with instants.

Anyway, hope some of that helps! Super unique running Rakdos zombies. +1

Hey there! Let’s see if I can help...

Mana-Doublers: I’d start with Crypt Ghast and Bubbling Muck . Cheap and efficient. Definitely somewhere to start. If you have some cash to spend, invest in Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . That combo doubles all your lands since they all become swamps so your islands would produce U + B, and swamps would produce B + B.

Some flexible creatures: Clever Impersonator , Clone , Evil Twin , Duplicant , Dimir Doppelganger , and Havengul Lich are all good “copiers”.

Chill would be a dope sidebord card to use when you play against that mono-red deck.

A crazy idea and a stunt I like to pull in one of my decks is run Tunnel Vision to use on yourself as a tutor (the card you name ends up on top of your library) and then you’re also putting cards in your graveyard which is what you want to do.

+1 good luck!
