Cabal Stronghold Discussion
1 day ago
I'd also highly recommend Nether Traitor, Prized Amalgam, and Relentless Dead. Maybe not the cheapest cards, but they recur from the graveyard so easily. I'd also recommend going with 4 Desecrated Tomb since it plays such an important role in your deck. For the mana base, I'd recommend Cabal Stronghold and Castle Locthwain.
Also, I'd consider Stitcher's Supplier or other self-mill cards. In a deck with so many recurrable creatures, self-mill in a sense draws you more cards whereas you run the risk of running out of gas with discard.
The idea of the deck is actually very similar to mono-black in Pioneer. Jim Davis also tried a Golgari Desecrated Tomb deck for Pioneer and I really think once might be able to combine the ideas and just make a mono-black, Desecrated Tomb, aggro Pioneer deck.

Hey, looks like your going for a Zombie tribal theme.
Going to have to make some sacrifices of five drop Zombies and here's some advice. Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Gray Merchant of Asphodel and The Scarab God are the only three you need the rest could be cut. Muldrotha, Grave Titan, Rooftop Storm and Liliana, Dreadhorde General are the only six drops you need.
I have a Zombie tribal Muldrotha deck that I made last year, Zombie Grave Wave (Budget). My deck is budget, $200, but it could give you some ideas and you can replace the budget alternatives I'm using with more expensive price cards that you have. More advice to improve your deck is to include Gravecrawler infinite combos since it's a Zombie.
Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Diregraf Captain/Plague Belcher/Bontu's Monument/Blood Artist/Vengeful Dead is an infinite combo to make all your opponents lose life. Sac Gravecrawler with Altar, use the one black mana to cast Gravecrawler from your graveyard and repeat. Gravecrawler + Altar is infinite casts of Gravecrawler from your graveyard which can be used with other cards. Diregraf Colossus is infinite 2/2 Zombies. Undead Augur/Secrets of the Dead/Guardian Project can draw into a win condition. Kill all your opponents creatures with Grave Pact.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Evolving Wilds
- Cabal Stronghold: don't need this land since you have Coffers.
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Golgari Rot Farm
- Simic Growth Chamber
- Font of Fertility
- Curse of Disturbance
- Curse of Predation
- Curse of Death's Hold
- Curse of Misfortunes
- Cruel Reality
- Door of Destinies
- Springbloom Druid
- Vile Rebirth
- Casualties of War
- Geralf's Mindcrusher
- Vulturous Zombie
- Perpetual Timepiece
- Gilded Lotus
- Amulet of Vigor: not worth playing just to have Bounce lands ETB untapped.
- Soulless One
- Gravebreaker Lamia
- Havengul Lich
- Nyxbloom Ancient
- Grave Betrayal
- Deadbridge Chant
- Bow of Nylea
- Greater Good
- Sultai Ascendancy
- Eternal Skylord
- Underrealm Lich
- Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord
- God-Eternal Bontu
- God-Eternal Rhonas
- Fallen Shinobi
- Unbreathing Horde
- Black Market
- Corpse Harvester
To also make room for more lands and other card upgrades this is more than 13 card suggestions to consider cutting. Many of these suggestions are good cards, but are very much outclassed by other better cards in your deck already or you could add with such a high budget.
20x total lands is not enough for a functioning Commander deck. Want at least 30-36 lands depending on how high the avg. CMC of your deck is and how many additional mana sources you include. The current avg. CMC is 3.7 which is too high. What's making it this high is too many high CMC Zombies especially five drops.
I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Unfortunately tezzerret's gambit is not legal in mono black commander.
I would check out Ambition's Cost or Ancient Craving to run instead.
Also Cabal Stronghold would be great in here if you can find a copy.

some suggestions, maybe
Temple of the False God over Peat Bog
Cabal Stronghold is playable, cheaper alternative to cabal coffers.
Crypt Ghast is great, depends on budget also Magus of the Coffers.
Crux of Fate is good, also Animate Dead.

Great Suggestion! though Cabal Coffers is sadly over my budget and I think that Cabal Stronghold is not bad as a cheaper alternative.Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth might not pay off that well, I think, since I only have 5 Lands that aren't swamps.
But thank you none the less! :D

This deck is built more like a Commander deck then a Pioneer deck. That means it won't be very consistent. It also means that its path to victory isn't clear.
Take a look at this deck Sarkhan's Dragon Den
It has three very clear win conditions. The description also describes what it wants to happen in the early, mid, and late stages of the game.
Once you decide how you want this deck to win, work out which cards will get you there. Beef them up to 3 and 4 copies, and start cutting back the single copy cards.
I'm not sure of your budget, either. I have a feeling that you mashed this list together out of cards you already own. I can tell you from approximately six years of brewing my own decks, you are unlikely to win any games at a tournament without buying a good number of Rares and Mythics for your deck.
I have played with both.
Once again, I have been playing with this card and it is ridiculously good.
You have no good ongoing draw in this deck. I use Ob Nixilis Reignited
Kalitas is very good at the moment, as he exiles creatures. People have a lot of recurring creatures in the current meta.
You have a lot of work to get this deck more ship shape.
When you've made it more competitive give me a shout, and I'll take another look at it.
