Bump in the Night cant be used (it has red in the flashback cost) Drain Life, Consume Spirit or Exsanguinate are good alternatives

ShreddedByCrows I love your suggestions. I don't play a lot of creatures because I wanted a different deck than the whole creature based shenanigans.

You are right about the Magus of the Coffers, I will be replacing him with Doubling Cube. And Choices of Damnation with Extraplanar Lens. Note to self, change lands to the 'Snow-Covered' versions.

The deck seems to teeter to the suicidal, so the Consume Spirit, Soul Burn, and Drain Life are in there to most offset that loss of life.

Curse of the Cabal will be coming out for Alhammarret's Archive.

Phyrexian Obliterator is great and I will be placing him in replacing All Is Dust.

Lich's Mastery works well with Bloodchief Ascension, Exquisite Blood, Consume Spirit, Soul Burn, Drain Life, Exsanguinate, and lastly, Maga, Traitor to Mortals. However, with that being sad, I believe I need Reliquary Tower.

lance4224130 Hey, as we are playing exactly the same colours EDH decks, I had to come here too!

I started EDH with a Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief deck (which is on my page if you want to have a look, it may give you some ideas).

As experienced, I don't really like Magus of the Coffers. Even if you got the boots to directly equip him (and you don't play them, which is understandable with Erebos as commander), it's really slow. If you're looking for a card with a similar effect, you could put in a Doubling Cube (a bit greedy though, but I love this card), an Extraplanar Lens (play snow-covered swamps if you go for it, so your opponents won't get any benefits) or Jet Medallion.

Consuming Vapors feels badly slow and only affect one dude. Even if it has rebound, I won't play it. I play Choice of Damnations in my Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck because I have the ability to down everyone life totals quite quickly... in a hard control deck as this one, I think it's just not good enough. Your opponents will often choose to lose something like 9-10 life points on the best cases, and you will spend all your mana in a useless card. Same reaction for Consume Spirit, Soul Burn and Drain Life. Except maybe in some greedy Jeleva decklists, Curse of the Cabal seems like a bad card for EDH.

If you want to play devotion, Phyrexian Obliterator and Necropotence are staples. Erebos's Titan is not bad either (and flavorful). Dread Shade at leat deserves some testing playtime. Even if it's not your initial strategy, Grave Titan is huge and ugly - so it's definitely everything you like in his kind of deck. Kokusho, the Evening Star is a great tread to take advantage on your opponents.

If you want to stay on a more ''creatureless'' devotion version, you could try out Kuon, Ogre Ascendant which is hard to flip, but pretty damn effective.

All Is Dust makes out as a great board-clear, but you should keep in mind it also forces you to sacrifice your enchantments. Phyrexian Scriptures are nice in synergy with The Abyss, but it's quite a slow card. Massacre Wurm is a nice card to control the board (hum... to destroy every token deck), healing you and giving you a strong body on the battlefield.

Grim Tutor and Increasing Ambition are another good tutor options.

Bitterblossom with Contamination and/or Attrition is op - Bloodghast / Ophiomancer serve the same purposes, and you will also love to add Skullclamp if you go for it, having access to a nice sac outlet is what makes monoB that strong in my opinion (also with cards like Ashnod's Altar, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos (flavorful!) etc.).

Painful Quandary is an insanly powerful card in Control decks. For other cruel cards as this one, you have Lethal Vapors, Oppression, Death Cloud or Capital Punishment.

Waste Not could fit if you add some mass discards effects (like Bottomless Pit (not the best example as you also discard AT RANDOM, meh...), Vindictive Lich, etc.).

You have the Lich's Mastery which seems funny.

I certainly forgot a lot of cards, but I'll let you know if something else come to my mind. Have great fun building it up!

never hurts to have extra options. If your going to fire your glass cannon in one shot, who cares if you end up sacrificing it to a Rite of Consumption. What happens if your Consume Spirit gets countered? for 1B your still in the game.

Haunting Misery is strictly in this deck as a back-up plan for when Consume Spirit fails in terms of getting enough damage. For example, lets say you get to 16 mana and they are at 20 life, you only have 15 points of damage with your Consume Spirit alone. With the use of Haunting Misery you are able to get in with the needed extra damage. The land drops were an issue until I made the addition of 3 Peat Bog. A 4 of Peat Bog could be used if you are absolutely dead set on needing to combo off on turn 3 or 4 but I have found that running 3 instead of 4 leaves room for more consistency.

No problem! In addition, I like the idea of extra mana being utilized by Consume Spirit and Haunting Misery, but I feel like the idea of a Win more strategy in this deck can get in the way of the way of how you ultimately want to win, using Horror of the Broken Lands. Also, Haunting Misery seems counterintuitive to your strategy of using Reaping the Graves to get cycling cards back, and it turns off Cabal Ritual. These slots might be used for extra lands? Ive found that making a turn 1 land drop can be difficult, making it hard to combo off until as late as turn 5 or 6. If you dont want all those slots to be lands, Id suggest a second Crypt Rats. Keep up the rad deck making!
