Charcoal Diamond Discussion
1 week ago
There is also ways to be sneakier so when you play Liliana's Contract you can flash things in with Vedalken Orrery or Winding Canyons. The main concern I have is the the curve of the deck, so I would ass in cards like Mind Stone, Jet Medallion, Charcoal Diamond, Everflowing Chalice, Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, and Wayfarer's Bauble just to add in that extra ramp. Ancient Tomb is great with Drana, same with Extraplanar Lens and Gauntlet of Power. If you need that extra oomph as well, Caged Sun. Heartless summoning seems really cool plus it fits with the demon scheme :P

In my opinion you can swap two swamps out for mana rocks, maybe a Charcoal Diamond and a Everflowing Chalice. I personally feel that Door of Destinies is terrible unless you're playing tribal with a low curve and a lot of creature spells (like elves). As an alternative you may want to consider Liliana's Mastery instead.

good artifacts to have regardless of the theme is/are the availible signets. In your case, it would be Golgari Signet. Other nice mana rocks include Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Charcoal Diamond, Commander's Sphere, and Darksteel Ingot. There are spells that allow you to search for lands, such as Rampant Growth, Skyshroud Claim, Explosive Vegetation, and Hour of Promise. The article you mentioned was wrong, as the only card you can have multiple copies of are basic lands. If you wanted to keep with the artifact theme, then run Artifact Creatures such as Darksteel Colossus, Triskelion, Noxious Gearhulk, Verdurous Gearhulk, Duplicant, and Solemn Simulacrum (AKA sad robot). There are many more and if you want check some out you could use this link http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&type=+[%22Artifact%22]+[%22Creature%22]. Just remember that not every one is a winner and you don't have to run all of them. If you wanted to replace your commander, that's entirely your choice, but unfortuatly, golgari isn't known for making creatures unblockable. the Simic commander Kaseto, Orochi Archmage and the Arzorius commander Sygg, River Guide gives creatures unblockable. If I choose a new commander, I would choose Kaseto because it's less restictive, and while you can build it tribal, it can also have some other strategy. The youtube channel "Tolarian Community College" has guides on both of these commanders if you decide to go this route and get stuck. EDHREC (https://edhrec.com/) is also a great tool for building a commander deck.

Pathrazer of Ulamog is pretty good, as well as Void Winnower. I know many can't afford them but Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Emrakul, the Promised End, and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth are the best colorless creatures to cast with your commander. Charcoal Diamond and Rakdos Signet are good ramp spells.

You have too many lands and not enough ramp. 35-38 lands is ideal, considering how fast it wins, so taking out basics for dual lands and mana rocks such as Sky Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, Dimir Signet, Darksteel Ingot, Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, and Mind Stone are a good start. I would also add more and better counterspells, as well as Coat of Arms for some beefy bois, and maybe more ETB effects for all the tokens you're making.

Wasteland will make it into the deck, Field of Ruin, I can see it's benefits, throw the opps off, especially if there was a Mystical Tutor, Worldly Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, etc. I'll see where I can fit them in, what lands have been dead on board and deserve a spot.
I haven't put Dash Hopes in, and I doubt it'll actually find a real spot in the deck. There's just something I gotta do to protect my enchantments, and or be able to remove enchantments on the field.

Thanks BelugaWhale217 for the suggestions, but I probably won't use them. I tried to keep the deck under $30.00 and I just wanted to make a Hythonia the Cruel deck, not necessarily a Demon Tribal deck. The mana rocks you suggested would pump up the price a bit too much, though I will add in Charcoal Diamond. Within those restrictions, do you have any other ideas?

you should replace some of your swamps for ramp Sol Ring, Solemn Simulacrum, Coldsteel Heart, Gilded Lotus, Jet Medallion, Charcoal Diamond, and other artifacts will help you get more mana faster. Crypt Ghast is the best mono-black card so add that as well. Also, your commander doesn't really synergize with your strategy, so consider looking through Commanders by power level for a better one. One last thing, if you want to go full demon tribal you should use about 20 Shadowborn Apostles.
