Enchanted land is a Swamp.
Whenever enchanted land becomes tapped, its controller loses 2 life.
I am fond of black and white. Have you given thought to Contaminated Ground , Sinister Possession , or Dying Wish ? The ground and possession cards will dick up your opponent. The dying wish is beneficial to you because if you get a buff creature, say your hero of iroas in a turn three situation. Let's say you slap an ordeal (reduced cost), an ethereal armor, and this Dying Wish on (also reduced cost). You get three +1's from triggers, a minimum three +1's from ethereal armor, a +1 from attacking with it, and dying wish plays head games. Your hero is sitting at close to ten now. If your opponent tries to kill it or block it or whatever, you are gaining mucho life and they are losing mucho life. Maybe a sideboard option, maybe a mainboard option, your choice. deck is pretty nice. +1 from me. You could get a better use out of Dying Wish in this deck than the deck that I use it in. Namely, La Muerte Negro- Unbeaten at FNM. Check it out if you would like.
While I originally did not want to use Underworld Connections at first because of how slow it felt to me, I can't help but think you might be right. While it may be slower and lacks board presence it may be better here than the Mogis's Marauder which do nothing in early game compared to an aggro deck and there are better things to play late game. Now I just need to get my hands on some to try it out. Thanks for the tip.
As for MBD, I found those Contaminated Ground in my SB to be all I need against all devotion decks. It shuts down Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Mutavault every time. Back when this was an aggro deck, it never lost to a devotion deck after board, though I was running 4xContaminated Ground in SB back then. It's a fringe card that I feel should actually get a lot more attention cause it can also punish slow starts as well and most often results in free wins.
Have you considered Contaminated Ground at all? against non black decks it is almost as good as Land D for 2 mana
Thank you for your suggestions, first off, I will put Think Twice instead of the Deep Analysis ( its just way better ), Lightning Bolt could be great but I do not know if I want to sacrifice the discard of Blightning ( I might have to, Lightning Bolt is propably better, just because I can choose the where the Dmg will go ).
I will look up for some Curses as thurza suggested, Contaminated Ground seems cool and not bad at all, I will think about it and try it in the play.
Thank you for your suggestions !
If you're playing a deck based around Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker , you should be doing everything within your power to be unnecessarily cruel. You'll want to pack this deck with continuous effects that screw over your opponent and slow them down, like Contaminated Ground or several of the Curses from Innistrad block. If you take this route, you probably won't have much in the way of creature threats (you won't need them), but you should work at controlling the board and countering spells, or you will probably get steamrolled.
This will be a fun deck. Should move fast too.
Thank you! I love me some flavor...adds to the fun and I can see you hopped on the flavor train in your commentary! Your recommendations are always welcome and they are really good. I like the redundancy option so I can pretty much guarantee my opponent is going to have a bad time.
If running Evil Presence or Contaminated Ground on the SB, might be fun to add in either Funeral Charm or Nighthaze . Enchant opponent's land, give one of the big rats FC of NH to give them Swampwalk, profit! I'm leaning towards FC because of its flexibility options.
