Cabal Stronghold Discussion

Both Cabal Coffers and Cabal Stronghold can greatly ramp you so you can activate more abilities in a turn. Dictate of Erebos is a staple. Any tutors help the consistency, Diabolic Tutor , Demonic Tutor , and Vampiric Tutor . You need ways to wipe the board if one of our opponents gets out of hand, I like Mutilate and Killing Wave (both get around hexproof and indestructible). I like Reprocess with Shirei because it is free card draw.

Cabal Stronghold is a good card for more mana.

If you wanted to make this deck legacy, I'd consider adding Cabal Coffers , or if that's too pricy for you, or you want to stay in modern, Cabal Stronghold could be great too.

Hey Daggerfella,

my suggestions are:

Cabal Coffers or Cabal Stronghold are nice cards to run if you can get out Urborg out as well. I'd go with the latter if you're worried about a dead land.

Hey! Nice deck, I also have a Yahenni deck and I have a few low budget cards that i think would be great for your deck. First card that I think is a must for Yahenni is Spawning Pit this card over performs every time I put it out. It's another sacrifice outlet and it doubles as a token generator, it's amazing. Another great sac outlet is Sadistic Hypnotist its my favorite card in my list and has let me win countless games by virtually locking others out of the game outside of topdecking. Helm of Possession is another favorite card of mine, i still cant believe it cost less then 5 dollars.

I would put in Plaguecrafter over merciless executioner, same price but better effect.

I think you also want more token generators, ones that I like that you dont have are Noosegraf Mob for a best budget option, Hangarback Walker and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet as well as Grave Titan for a bit more expensive options and finally Bitterblossom if you're looking to splash some cash.

Another cheap all star is Mirage Mirror this card is amazing. Doubling our Dictate of Erebos triggers is insane and in your voltron deck you can make it a copy of an equipment to make Yahenni larger or just copy a different target, theres always great ones.

Another aspect of the deck that could use some love is your land base. Obviously there's Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth which is the sacred black combo if you want to spend some money on those but theres some great more budget friendly options too. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a great card for under 10 dollars and can produce a ton of mana, Cabal Stronghold is very powerful and its a land that you can copy with Mirage Mirror to make even more mana if you want. High Market is another great one and finally Myriad Landscape and Barren Moor are two great cheap ones.

Removal is something that you can upgrade rather easily as well. Hero's Downfall is strictly better murder and Ashes to Ashes still cost 50 cent for some reason. Another great one is Attrition it gets rid of artifact creatures too which sometimes is an issue. Unstable Obelisk is a good card with dual purpose as removal for things that are hard to get rid of for mono black and it ramps, a great card to add.

If there is one card that I think is an absolute must add to your list though its Grave Pact I know it's on the pricey side but believe me, there isn't enough of this effect it is always useful.

Feel free to check out my list if you want to see more cards that could be good to add. I wish you luck in your endeavors as a member of Sac gang, and remember "The time for subtlety is over, darling."

BlackDeegs, thank you for your thoughts on the deck! The Creeping Chill were added as a knee-jerk reaction to getting roasted by burn at a recent FNM and thinking, "I use some self-mill cards, why not try... this?" But I see your point and value your advice, so thanks for bringing an objective eye to the deck list. (I went with Moment of Craving in the side board instead.)

As for Graveyard Marshal , I just have to keep 4, I'm sorry lol. After playing the deck a bunch, I just know the value is there. But I did add the Cabal Stronghold because I think you're right and it will outshine the Memorial to Folly in the long run.

Thanks again, let me know what you think of the changes.

Hey there,

As a forever fan of black decks, zombies, skeletons, and the classic Death Baron I like your general deck idea here. Some suggestions I would make would be to add a Cabal Stronghold for late game. Once you hit 5 swamps it can give you a boost which you could use to your mana pool for reassembling your Reassembling Skeleton , Gutterbones , and for Isareth the Awakener .

I would also cut the creeping chill as I don't think they add much value to your deck. Replacing them with Duress from your sideboard which I think would serve you better in preventing some counterplay to your board.

I would also suggest cutting at least one Graveyard Marshal , probably two (i know he is great but here me out) and replacing him with a Vona's Hunger . Because your deck is so permeant heavy and such low converted mana cost I think you could really end up forcing players to sacrifice half their creatures consistently with it, and also I feel as though Liliana, Untouched By Death is undermined by Graveyard Marshal , so while you want his ability you would likely be using him as a 3/2 zombie to buff with Deathbaron.
