You could add Cabal Stronghold and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , but the latter is a little spendy and without it Cabal Stronghold isn't very good. I think it would help for casting Dark Salvation .

Plz forgive if this is a stupid thing to ask: Is synergy a must have for competitive play? I’ve had mixed results with this mono black aggro deck over the past 5 or 6 weeks. Any comments/criticisms from anyone more experienced than me (everyone ha!) are appreciated.

Creatures:

1 drop - Pilfering Imp x2 - Vampire of the Dire Moon x3 - Foulmire Knight x3 - Banehound x4

2 drop - Order of Midnight x2

3 drop - Midnight Reaper x2 - Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Bloodthirsty Aerialist x2 - Murderous Rider x3

3*/4 drop - Spawn of Mayhem x3 - Rankle, Master of Pranks x2

Non-creature:

- Fatal Push x4 - Thoughtseize x2 - Duress - Despise - Ultimate Price

Lands:

- Swamp x18 - Mutavault x2 - Cabal Stronghold - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Rogue's Passage - Fabled Passage

Sideboard is a couple more removals, green countermeasures, and planeswalker removals

If this was a stupid question, I’m sorry for spam. TY for taking the time to read.

I'm not sure why you wouldn't run field wipes like Damnation , Toxic Deluge , Languish , Mutilate , etc. given your field wiping goals.

I imagine Cabal Stronghold might be up your alley. Lashwrithe is just a fun an efficient beater in black that works with any of your small guys as well. Heck, as a control deck Empowered Autogenerator should keep your high curved sated in time. Mind Sludge seems like reasonably powerful discard power.

Given this is control idk why you wouldn't have draw power such as Phyrexian Arena , or even Underworld Connections , Coercive Portal . Ob Nixilis Reignited even serves those goals with some removal splashed in.

Generally efficient options like Dismember and Go for the Throat exist as well for spot removal.

Liking the low budget. I've a few suggestions:

- Never/Return

- Dreadhorde Invasion

- Victim of Night

You probably don't need Cabal Stronghold . Not generating and not being a swamp for your "# of swamps" spells is a significant drawback. The only use for the extra mana I can see is Dread Shade which itself is a reason to want all black sources. Witch's Cottage could be a reasonable replacement.

Yea I like Scion of Darkness a lot and I have him in a Storevv EDH deck. I wonder if Cabal Stronghold would be a budget option if more basics were used and Tectonic Reformation could be relied upon more. I have to make a deck like this now!

The deck can make between a somewhere between a lot and infinite mana in the mid to late game so mana isn't that hard to come by. My land base is pretty solid with Cabal Coffers , Cabal Stronghold , Deserted Temple , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Thespian's Stage , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Vesuva . I also have a Magus of the Coffers and an Umbral Mantle for infinite mana with at least 6 Snow-Covered Swamp s

Ruinous Path and Cabal Stronghold both seem like possible additions.

Maybe using cards like Sidisi, Undead Vizier so you can tutor cards and sac stuff you need in the grave, Scheming Symmetry , Phyrexian Delver , Bolas's Citadel , Buried Alive to tutor your wincons to the gy (like Necrotic Ooze Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion and you win in the spot), Animate Dead , Dark Petition , Carrion Feeder , Gravecrawler , Living Death / Rise of the Dark Realms (that last one is kinda expensive) I'd suggest those as black cards. Using Sol Ring is more useful than Worn Powerstone , Expedition Map to tutor any land to hand, Tormod's Crypt bc gy hate is useful, Gilded Lotus 3 mana by 5 isn't bad, Thought Vessel , Aetherflux Reservoir wincon tho. The mana base kinda concerns me by the amount of basic swamps, you could use something like Cabal Stronghold , Reliquary Tower , Terramorphic Expanse , Evolving Wilds even if it's a mono color deck, being able to shuffle and get lands out of the deck will be useful, less dead draws. Sword of the Animist is always useful if you don't have ramp.
