Crypt Ghast

Creature — Spirit

Extort (Whenever you cast a spell, you may pay . If you do, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain that much life.)

Whenever you tap a swamp for mana, you may add to your mana pool (in addition to the mana the land produces).

I suggest Crypt Ghast to make things happen faster and to boost up your X cost cards. Also a little discard like Inquisition of Kozilek , Duress or Thoughtseize might save you from dangerous spells

Hey there! Let’s see if I can help...

Mana-Doublers: I’d start with Crypt Ghast and Bubbling Muck . Cheap and efficient. Definitely somewhere to start. If you have some cash to spend, invest in Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . That combo doubles all your lands since they all become swamps so your islands would produce U + B, and swamps would produce B + B.

Some flexible creatures: Clever Impersonator , Clone , Evil Twin , Duplicant , Dimir Doppelganger , and Havengul Lich are all good “copiers”.

Chill would be a dope sidebord card to use when you play against that mono-red deck.

A crazy idea and a stunt I like to pull in one of my decks is run Tunnel Vision to use on yourself as a tutor (the card you name ends up on top of your library) and then you’re also putting cards in your graveyard which is what you want to do.

+1 good luck!

Crypt Ghast will make your big X spells easier to cast (and also plug more mana in them), and if you want to spent more moneys Nirkana Revenant is really cool

I'd do Talisman of Dominance --> Crypt Ghast .

Sundering Titan is a dope card but not might always hit if they're playing fast lands or check lands, but will definitely hit shocks; and probably only one or two. Grave Titan might be a better boy to slam down, or if you wanna be super janky, Josu Vess lich night . Soul of New Phyrexia is also dope

Hey, my concern with your deck is the manabase. If you don't have or can't afford the playable Dimir dual lands then you would be better off playing only black with Swamps. Right now the manabase is really bad with only two playable Dimir dual lands. You don't want Islands because these conflict too much with the majority of the black cards here especially one drop black Zombies.

Consider Sidisi, Undead Vizier as the Commander? Sidisi is good as a Commander as a repeatable tutor and Zombies give you plenty of sac fodder. Mono black can take advantage of Crypt Ghast , Extraplanar Lens (best with Snow-Covered Swamp ), Liliana of the Dark Realms , Cabal Coffers , Cabal Stronghold as repeatable ramp with Swamps. Dark Ritual , Cabal Ritual , Bubbling Muck , Songs of the Damned are more cards that can make ramp.

Mono black can also use reanimation which is good with Sidisi and Zombies: Animate Dead , Reanimate , Victimize , Buried Alive , Entomb , Patriarch's Bidding , Living Death , Liliana, Death's Majesty , Sheoldred. With mono black you can use Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Zombie Trailblazer with Filth as ways to make your Zombies unblockable. Good luck with your deck.

Your deck has awesome cards, but it doesn't have the ramp to pull it off. Especially considering that your commander has a CC of 7. Wayfarer's Bauble is always a solid ramp card when you're outside of green. I also like Worn Powerstone . For creatures, you have Magus of the Coffers and Crypt Ghast . Solemn Simulacrum works well with your commander. Dark Ritual can also help you get your commander out early.

Hey Afrozach,

This is a common confusion and understandably so, but the card is in fact legal because the color identity of Crypt Ghast is only black, and not white. This is because the orzhov symbol is displayed in reminder text - recognizable by the (...) and the italic font - and not on text of the actual rules. And reminder text does not influence the color identity of a card.

Isn't Crypt Ghast illegal because of the white in the card?

Manaforge Cinder is a mana fixer, but not a dork. Unless I'm missing something.
