Burnt Offering Discussion

Don't think Burnt Offering is legal in mono black, as the oracle text contains a red mana symbol.

I think this list is cool. Think 33 lands might be 1 or 2 too many, even when considering Rain of Filth. Think you should strongly consider running Lake of the Dead , perhaps Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as well.

I recommend Soldevi Adnate Sacrifice Burnt Offering

Which have been amazing cards for me.

What are your thoughts on the black sacrifice rituals for ramp? Sacrifice, Burnt Offering and Culling the Weak can do some decent ramp, particularly if you madness out a random thing since madness costs are often much discounted from their regular CMC.

Added Aphotic Wisps to make it possible for a turn 1 win.

Ignore my first ignorant comment. What was I thinking? Apparently nothing because turn 1 and a better pile and hand does exist and I'm here to deliver. Here it is all you friendly budget deck seekers.

Hand (Goodluck)- Swamp , Dark Ritual , Doomsday , Putrid Imp <--(Any 1 drop creature), Sol Ring , Culling the Weak , Aphotic Wisps .

Turn 1 play Swamp --> Dark Ritual --> Sol Ring --> K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth --> Doomsday --> (Grabbing Infernal Contract (TOP), Exquisite Blood , Sanguine Bond , Sacrifice or Burnt Offering , and Death Cultist .)

Use Aphotic Wisps to draw Infernal Contract then pay your useless 6 life and draw the rest.

Cast Death Cultist , Putrid Imp with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth . Cast Culling the Weak for 2 life targeting Putrid Imp . Use 1 black mana of the 4 generated to cast Sacrifice or Burnt Offering sacrificing K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth . This will provide a total of 10 black mana. Cast Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond then sacrifice Death Cultist to start the combo. STONKS. I didn't think it was possible but thanks to google and 1 more brain cell, I figured it out.

When you reanimate Chronarch, you stack the triggers so that its ETB effect resolves before Inalla's eminence trigger does. You recurr Burnt Offering to your hand and respond to the Inalla trigger by casting it with your remaining to bin Chronarch and make , then use 1 of it to pay the Inalla trigger for an extra Chronarch, which returns Shallow Grave to your hand. Cast SG for mana you just made to recurr Chronarch and get back Burnt Offering, rinse and repeat.

As for Achaeomancer, it comes down to personal preference. Archaeomancer will make you enough mana to continue the loop and make hasty wizards, but not profit from it each time, whereas Chronarch will net you an extra red or black which you can funnel into loops or Cut // Ribbons. I personally prefer the Chronarch line because it doesn't require going to combat in case somebody wants to try something cute once you pass priority from Main Phase into Combat and lose your floating mana and your loop.

I really like your list but I have two questions.

I might be missing something but what exactly are you doing after you reanimate the Chronarch? By that point you have Izzet Chronarch in play, Chronarch's and Inalla's triggers on the stack, Entomb , Reanimate , Burnt Offering in your graveyard and only left on your mana pool.

I can't see how you go from there to looping Burnt Offering and Shallow Grave without needing extra mana and/or extra life while looping Izzet Chronarch instead of Scholar of the Ages .

Also, if your loop works with Izzet Chronarch why not base your chain around Archaeomancer instead?
