Charcoal Diamond Discussion

Savaaage on [Primer] Nightmare by Design (Chainer) UPDATED

I've mentioned it earlier but I think it's worth noting, with your current archetype in mind, that there isn't enough of a support package to fully utilize Mana Vault. I think you're safe on replacing it with Gilded Lotus or any 2 CMC Monoblack rock: Coldsteel Heart, Charcoal Diamond, Jet Medallion.

The untap during upkeep clause, paying 4, deals damage to you if you don't. I don't like all of these factors about this card.

Honestly in retrospect, cut it for Basalt Monolith, which will open up an avenue for infinite mana w/ Rings of Brighthearth into Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire.

Thanks for the comment! I removed Sin Prodder more on a whim because I've discarded far too many lands to him that it feels like I get more consistent draws without him. Your comments reminded me to update the decklist with how it's reflected in paper now and Vial Smasher has indeed been amazing! So happy that I got my copy when I did. As for Chrome Mox It's been found that I'd rather keep the card in hand, as the extra mana can be found in cheaper sources like Charcoal Diamond or something similar.

Hey, consider Bloodline Keeper, Erebos, God of the Dead, Zulaport Cutthroat, Hero's Downfall and Tragic Slip?

Keeper could replace Noosegraf Mob, Erebos could replace Greed, Cutthroat could replace Charcoal Diamond, Downfall could replace Doom Blade and Slip could replace Go for the Throat.

I had Gisa for a bit and looking at your deck you're land heavy and short on ramp. Making your land drops is great but when you're stuck at only that you'll be left in the dust by other decks most times. Charcoal Diamond, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Solemn Simulacrum, Pilgrim's Eye, Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, etc. are options to get you ahead or get lands out of your deck so your draws are action.

Magewright's Stone is another source of untapping to consider.

Surprised to not see wraths like Damnation or Decree of Pain.

Your woefully low on card advantage. Phyrexian Arena, Ob Nixilis Reignited , Sign in Blood, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, etc. do a solid job.

In my deck I employed Blood Bairn, Bloodthrone Vampire and Nantuko Husk to eat zombies and sack it for a ton more. Then reanimate again for more. Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Animate Dead are always useful in black decks imo.

Hope something helps!

Orzhov Signet/Cluestone/Keyrune are all cards to add for budget ramp. Marble Diamond/Charcoal Diamond aren't flashy but get your commander cast.Add that Mind Stone as well.

Seconding Underworld Connections too.

Might as well run Charcoal Diamond over Manalith!

Great start for the deck! You have a great creature lineup but you might need to get a couple more rakdos enablers, like Seal of Fire. I would definitely cut Armillary Sphere because it doesn't ramp you at all. I would put in mana rocks like Charcoal Diamond andFire Diamond. If you need ideas on how to make it more consistent or faster, check out my decklist!

Couple things, You need to add more mana ramp. So cards like Sol Ring and Gauntlet of Power Cabal Coffers Caged Sun most off those are pricey cards but Magus of the Coffers isn't and is a game changer for ramp. Charcoal Diamond Doubling Cube Paradise MantlePristine Talisman Crypt Ghast etc. On my page I have a list of cards saved that shows all ramp cards for each color. The next thing I would think about doing is taking out some creatures and adding some mass removal, you have a lot of single card removal but not a lot of mass removal which black is good at. The deck could be good but theres a underlining thing with most of your decks that you make, They have have a ton of general stuff that creatures, for instance you have creatures that have lifelink, deathouch, but then you also have a ton of creatures that have infect. If I was you I would think about making this deck straight infect deck, of course with that you would want to change your commander but go to or and look up edh infect and see if you can find a good mono color that will work for you.
