Got it! Yeah with Chainer, Dementia Master it makes sense. :) That is a pretty fun interaction. Seems pretty straight forward too. I like that it is variable, consistent infinites arent as fun to me, since ultimately it just becomes a race to get your pieces in place. This one has enough pieces to not be a guaranteed "This is how I win everytime" thing, but seems doable enough to happen once in a while.

Nice work!

I vote omnath from that list. Lots of good choices. My personal mono deck is Chainer, Dementia Master.

Cool deck! If I may ask, why Balthor the Defiled over Chainer, Dementia Master for a deck like this?

Also, you might consider Black Market for more ramp. That card is bonkers in such a heavy sacrifice themed deck. I am a big fan of Noxious Gearhulk and Marionette Master as well.

Sorry to hear that LoaTheWolf. Anyways, I'd be happy to take a look at what you've got once you come up with a list or two. If you're interested in mono black control style builds, I personally think Chainer, Dementia Master looks like a ton of fun (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed would be my second pick). Another aristocrats style build you could go for would be Krav, the Unredeemed and Regna, the Redeemer.

Damn. this is one pimped out deck! its pretty dope. As far as recursion, have you considered adding Sun Titan ? it tends to be an all-star in my decks. As far as bundling the deck from the ground up, I see that you have It That Betrays . maybe if you were to lean harder into making opponents sacrifice stuff. You could add in Fleshbag Marauder , some sac outlets, and the Dictate of Erebos types of effects. If you wanna get value out of peoples stuff hitting graveyards when it that betrays isnt on board there's always Chainer, Dementia Master to do it more methodically. or Rise of the Dark Realms to do it all at once.

Aphoticate on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Basically anything can be a stax deck. I don't understand how these guys do it at the high power level. I might be able to see something like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet being considered high power stax as he both disrupts and has a token making ability that has decent synergy with Smallpox effects. Lily and Erebos are just noncreatures with meh card advantage in the zone. Is that really all that's required to be high power cedh? Like, I totally get that they dodge mass creature removal and that's beneficial but, I'm not seeing it as being that powerful a trait. Am I just way off? I might be able to be convinced of Erebos but Lily seems particularly bad to me. In addition to being a pain to flip the reanimator ability is limited. I know I'm biased but as far as mono b reanimator/stax goes Chainer, Dementia Master looks better to me. Maybe not high power worthy but better than Lily.
