Cabal Stronghold Discussion

Since Geth is a huge mana sink, I like to play a lot of mana accelerators, like Gauntlet of Power , Caged Sun , Nirkana Revenant , Crypt Ghast , etc. It also makes Swamp better than most non-basic lands you can draw, which in turn will make your Cabal Stronghold better, which also makes Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth unnecessary, as I don't really like it in mono black. I really don't get Homeward Path as it will give back everything Geth takes. If it's ever useful, you're probably so far behind it won't matter. Just a couple basic thoughts, that hopefully will give you something to consider. If you want to see mine, which I have iterated over the past couple of years, it's Geth, EDH. Though obviously, it's a little pricey.

Hello Icbrgr, thank you for your compliments, I am glad you like the deck.

  • Sangromancer is quite powerful, and just like you said, not quite popular. She will never disappoint you.
  • Lashwrithe is an amazing artefact, and I am running tests with it. Based on your suggestion I found Dread Shade . This new creature is somewhat similar to the artifact and gives both; a much-needed punch to the deck, and a great target for the insane mana produced by Cabal Stronghold , that was wasted sometimes.
  • Rain of Tears is also a great suggestion, and I am currently testing it as well. However, it is a mixed bag. It is indeed more reliable than Contaminated Ground , but I deeply miss the extra damage cause by it.
  • Sorcerous Spyglass and Pithing Needle are pretty good against Planeswalker, just like you stated. But I think I have a pretty decent anti walker spell density in 4x Ruinous Path and 2x The Eldest Reborn . And we can factor in the 4x Duress and 4x Memoricide as well for game 2 and 3.
  • Ratchet Bomb is excellent! In all honesty I had forgotten the thing. I will try to buy some and find a spot in the deck for them.
Thank you very much.

TheMillKid I think I might throw in Cabal Stronghold as the baby Cabal Coffers, since I mostly play in paper and don't want to shell out so much for a single card, at least not right now haha. Demonic Tutor is next on my buy list, and Black Market I like, I might throw it in again to test it out, my meta is full of removal like Krosan Grip and Return to Dust type cards so I'm sure its a kill-on-sight card, but I'll give it a whirl. Thanks for the suggestions!

A good, cheap way to generate lots of mana would be Cabal Stronghold , and if money is no object Cabal Coffers . Non-creature cards that don't die to Massacre Girl, but that work when creatures die could also be good! Black Market comes to mind.

I'd also definitely recommend Demonic Tutor over Diabolic Tutor.

Happy Brewing!

1x Cabal Stronghold might be worth considering, too. Maybe even 1x Mortuary Mire . And probably 1x Bojuka Bog .

Cabal Stronghold could be a back-up, less effective Cabal Coffers .

+1 for OG Drana, one of my favorites!

Magus of the Coffers and Cabal Stronghold and the less budget version Cabal Coffers can help you ramp, especially when paired with your Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . And you can use Expedition Map to help find the land combo pieces.

Some other cards I'd recommend:

Hope this helps!
