Contaminated Bond Discussion

Here are some ideas for the defensive options you mentioned:

Utter End and Anguished Unmaking are some good targeted removal options. Ashen Rider and Angel of Despair do the same thing on creatures.

Blind Obedience gives you another offensive and defensive option. Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, and Koskun Falls work well together to tax your opponents to prevent large strikes.

For this type of deck, Exsanguinate can be another good aggressive card / finisher.

There are a couple cards that I would consider removing:

Contaminated Bond and Shadow Lance are very limited options, since they only effect one creature.

Castigate and Cry of Contrition only target a single player as well.

Carom and Shred Memory don't seem to do much. Tendrils of Corruption is an expensive, single target removal against one creature.

I'm guessing a theme deck is probably going to be a little casual. Just brainstorming here...

Trove of Temptation + Hissing Miasma or Contaminated Bond.

Manabarbs + Urza's Armor

Overwhelming Splendor + Curse of Death's Hold

Sagarys well one card I really like in black is Blood Reckoning then there are cards like Nettlevine Blight or the cheap version of that: Brink of Disaster to slow your opponent/destroy their resources or play stuff like Contaminated Bond to stop small creatures early on...

Hope that helps a bit

So, for starters, I'd definitely take out Akroma's Memorial and either sell that bad boy or put it in literally any creature-focued EDH deck that you have, because all the keywords in the world will still only make your Stuffy Doll a 1/1. I'd also take out Assault Formation, since it only affects 4 of your creatures (and even then, it's negligible gain). Also, I'd nix Crawlspace since it defeats the purpose of Nightly Hunting. Gravity Well is redundant if you draw more than 1, so I'd just keep 2 copies.

To put in: Lust for War, Contaminated Bond, Contaminated Ground, Nettling Curse, Sinister Possession, Visions of Brutality, Goblin Diplomats. I'd put in Jaddi Offshoot or any Black creature with lifelink (Gifted Aetherborn? Vampire Cutthroat?) if you're concerned about Burn. I know your deck doesn't include B, but having those Auras will help you accelerate victory (honestly, you almost could take out all of the G cards in this deck).

Hope this helps! Mention me if I can clarify or otherwise be helpful.

@Ubbo_Sathla Thanks a lot for the suggestions! glad you like the idea of it, I physically cant wait to play it!

Those additions sound pretty good to me, Last Caress, Contaminated Bond and Reave Soul were more in there for space fillers than anything else, but I did not know that Viper's Kiss existed, that seems like an instant addition to me!

Read the Bones, Sign in Blood and Succumb to Temptation will probably find their way in too once I think of what to cut after land space.

This deck looks like a blast to play! In 1v1 matches it'll be a beast - a flipped Accursed Witch  Flip has great synergy with all of the targeted discard you're running.

As far as suggestions go, I can't help but feel that your land count is a bit low - I tend to stay around the 37 mark. I noticed that you're a bit sparse on draw spells, and black gets some of the best draw pauper has to offer; I run Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Succumb to Temptation, Phyrexian Rager, and Read the Bones in my own list.

Three cards in your list that seem a bit underwhelming to me are Last Caress, Contaminated Bond, and Reave Soul. The former seems too minor an effect, even with the cantrip. The Bond is a cool card, but most of the time I think it's a better idea to remove the threat entirely (if you dig the "slow drain" theme, I think the Contaminated Ground in your maybeboard would be better in this slot.) For myself, the sorcery speed of Reave Soul makes it less appealing - maybe something like Wring Flesh, Spinning Darkness, or Tendrils of Corruption would be worth considering? I also dig Viper's Kiss as "utility" removal.

Great deck, though! Pauper EDH is my new favorite format, as it tends to feel more like 'oldschool' magic.

I don't like the ideals because getting one enchantment out each turn for the rest of the game isn't as good as being able to play spells when you want to. Other suggested cuts are:

Things to add (pending budget of course, but you did just buy a foil italian Damnation):

Nisoth on False Gift Of Life

False Cure is unplayable. Dark Petition will meet your needs each and every time. Don't overlook the fact that it will find and cast Tainted Remedy most of the time.
Contaminated Bond is also unplayable. I see that you need it for Refreshing Rain, but Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is leagues better in that role. Also, by putting that function into a land slot, that frees up a spell slot for things like Healing Leaves.
One Stream of Life could be fun, too.
Reverent Silence is not not an option. Sure, it destroys Tainted Remedy, but if your opponent is under seven life that doesn't matter. Not something I would recommend, but food for thought.
