Cast Down Discussion

TriusMalarky on Nephalia Drownyard or Ipnu Rivulet

Deck seems slow, you need a lock piece. Something like a couple wraths or, if you can possibly afford it, Ensnaring Bridge is insane.

What you need is more board interaction, like Fatal Push or even just Cast Down, and some untapped duals. Choked Estuary is okay, River of Tears might help. Just lands that can ener untapped, regardless of how often, will increase this decks power by a lot.

On top of that, I'd use 4x Ipnu Rivulet and 1-2x Nephalia Drownyard. They're both okay but Rivulet is a free roll and Drownyard is a little less so.

Cool deck but might I suggest Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer for a more reliable sac outlet and possibly Mortician Beetle or Bloodbriar for some more value. When I goldfished a few times I would draw into a morbid creature but have no way of triggering morbid.

I found that Putrid Leech is just not that good in most situations. Face value you have a 2 mana 2/2 that each turn can become a 4/4 for a price.

4x Festerhide Boar seems like a bit much seeing as its cmc 4. I would include it as a 3 of.

Might I also suggest Cast Down or Vendetta for some more efficient removal (you will get the morbid trigger to matter if your or their creature died)

I also think that the 4x Ash Barrens is too much. Most of the time they will just slow you down. I would go to 2x ash barrens and replace them with a basic of each type.

I would also replace Wakedancer with Doomed Dissenter. Doomed also gets you the two bodies but for less mana and you will have an easier time getting full value.

For starters I'd add an extra 2-4 kill spells. Eliminate or Heartless Act come to mind. Or possibly Cast Down or something.

Is the reason you run so many basics budget? I'd personally use 7-9 fetches for ghast and nocturnus. Add 1-2 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and 4 Mutavault or Cavern of Souls. If you're hellbent on monoblack I'd add 1 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

With only 4 1-drop creatures I'm not sure if you're aggressive enough to really capitalize on Cordial. I'm also not sure if 8 targets are enough to justify Condemned. Do you just want to play small creatures and buff with lords? I'd personally include 2-4 Captivating to go with Nocturnus and since you're running Sorin anyway you'll probably want Champion of Dusk. If you need space I'd change Asylum visitor (monoblack vamps got so much draw power recently) and cordial to add 4 Captivating 2 Gatekeeper 2 Champion. That's if you wanna go all in on the more midrange flow that I feel vampires can pull off pretty nicely.

I'll have more to add later, lot of work to do as college in in session again.

Cast Down, Grasp of Darkness or Dismember are good too. here Urborg isnt that much (about 1o Euro, 12 Dollar)

Poseidon31 Yeah Cast Down is the better removal now, it's just that I don't really want to order just two cards lol and I use tappedout a lot to remember my paper decklists so I didn't update it. The one drops you listed are good, but it kind of beats the purpose of the deck. I have many tapped lands so that in the late game I can out-control my opponent, and to actually win I need cards in the graveyard to delve Gurmag Angler, so Forbidden Alchemy is my go to card. Also in my experience not too much happens in the first turn, at least nothing that I can't deal with later on. You can use all those cards, they're good cards but maybe it's better to play Dimir Faries or UR instead.

With the Reprint, Cast Down is now available for pauper and could replace Doom Blade. The non-legendary clause doesnt matter in Pauper, so you can easily hit black targets, too.

How about Opt, Brainstorm, Ponder or Preordain for the filter? You need more 1 one drops, to get into game fast.

PuddinWing I like the look of this but it almost feels like it's being pulled in two directions at once. I see either a Mystical Teachings toolbox control deck, or a more tempo oriented Delver of Secrets  Flip & Bone Picker style deck.

If you want to lean more into the first one, I would find some one-of type instants and have them in your deck to have an answer for specific match ups etc Echoing Decay & Echoing Truth. I would also swap out Bone Picker for Augur of Bolas to help you find the tools you need in a match.

If instead you want to lean into the tempo/aggro (?) strategy of Delver of Secrets  Flip and Bone Picker I would increase those Cast Downs to 4 copies and swap out SOME of the slower counter magic and lean into removal since that is what Bone Picker really needs to make it worth it.

Like the look of this! Hope my input is in some way helpful and constructive! Happy Pauper!

Have you considered Village Rites to sacrifice Stitcher's Supplier? You can also do it in response to an exile removal spell on one of your creatures, to reanimate later.

Mythos of Nethroi is trash here, its basically just Murder. There are a bunch of better options in pioneer like Fatal Push, Heartless Act, Hero's Downfall, Cast Down, etc. Maybe even Murderous Cut since you're loading up the graveyard so much.

For more discard outlets, maybe Chart a Course?
