Fetch and Shock lands (in your case Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats, Flooded Strand and Watery Grave) are always a good choice, so why don't you add them?

Then, remember you have Archive Trap, so you should find a way to make your opponent search his library, maybe Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin?

25 lands are too much, you need to be very fast or your opponent will kill you first!

Better alternatives to Lost Legacy are Surgical Extraction and Extirpate, they cost less and since you mill his deck, it will be easy for you to use them

You need something that let's you draw, so why not Visions of Beyond or, also, a less powerfull Opt or Serum Visions?

Consuming Aberration is too slow and too easy to destroy in my opinion.

Do you want to spend some money on your deck? Add some Snapcaster Mage

In my opinion Startled Awake  Flip is too slow and Talent of the Telepath isn't a good card you want to draw if your opponent plays only creatures, I'd add more mill cards, such as Thought Scour or Mesmeric Orb

Personally I don't like Sleep. Your opponent plays tons of creatures? Use Crypt Incursion or Fatal Push

A good sideboard can help you, so I'd add Leyline of the Void or Relic of Progenitus, Pithing Needle or Sorcerous Spyglass, Set Adrift or anything that could remove Leyline of Sanctity from the battlefield. Other suggestions are Damnation, Hurkyl's Recall (against affinity) and Murderous Cut

VeggiesaurusRex thanks! bog, spellbomb and progenitus hurts but somehow we can recover it but the life gained by Crypt Incursion is really backbreaking :(

sorry if i have too many questions for you but it's really helpful to have someone i can discuss with regarding this deck, i really love this deck! btw, is this list of yours up too date? or you have changes from this list, thanks!

killer_eye, game 1 against MBC, I try to combo kill them before they can cast Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Game 2 I typically just take out the Fume Spitters and Snuff Out, bring in Duress and pray they don't find their graveyard hate.

Bojuka Bog, Crypt Incursion, and Relic of Progenitus just wreck this deck, and there isn't much we can do about it.

Ok to start off, you can't run Bringer of the Blue Dawn or Bringer of the Black Dawn because of color identity, which considers mana symbols anywhere on rules text, not just casting cost.

I think you did a pretty good job for a first deck.

You seem to be running a combination of really good cards and out of place shitty cards. Unless there is some combo or synergy you have with them that I'm missing I think the following cards are garbage and should be cut:

Colfenor's Plans Binding Grasp Transcendence Etherwrought Page Celestial Dawn Words of Wind Reap Intellect Necrologia

is Darksteel Forge just to protect the commander? run Lightning Greaves instead, it's waaaaay cheaper to play.

because it's a sorcery and it goes to top of library rather than hand Cruel Tutor is almost strictly worse than Diabolic Tutor

If your opponents are going off way faster than you then you need to think about how to upset their early game with hate pieces. In combo heavy metas cards like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare and Glowrider slow your opponents down enough to let you gain control of the situation Kambal, Consul of Allocation also gains you life to stick around as they cast themselves to death. for creature heavy metas cards like Archfiend of Depravity, Ophiomancer, forced sac like Butcher of Malakir Dictate of Erebos and Magus of the Tabernacle can really fuck over a lot of decks. For pure control, stax is usually the best option in competitive EDH since relying on counterspells and spot removal to keep 3 other players in check isn't feasible. I also always recommend some graveyard hate in any deck Nihil Spellbomb Relic of Progenitus Grafdigger's Cage Rest in Peace Tormod's Crypt Crypt Incursion Silent Gravestone are all good and cheap to play. I also personally put Necropotence in every black deck, It's so good it honestly should be banned. other good general control cards are Force of Will Pact of Negation Mystic Confluence and Cryptic Command.

I'm not really clear on the win con. Something like a Blightsteel Colossus, any of the preators, or a x mana life drain like Debt to the Deathless, Exsanguinate, or Torment of Hailfire could kill of opponents once you've stabilized the game.

VeggiesaurusRex, thanks! havent't realized that delver decks will have a hard time countering our big mana creatures using Spellstutter Sprite.

i got another set of question: Q1: how do you play/sideboard against mbc? Q2: against mbc, how do you play around a sideboard Crypt Incursion? i may respond with a gnaw before thier incursion resolve but the gain life and exile of all are grave creatures is surely a big hit to our deck

Always nice to see another Toshiro deck. Budget too!

I really really, really don’t like Cremate in this style of deck. I get the idea, it’s kinda like Think Twice but it’s not really worth it. Commander cards really need to do something and Cremate doesn’t do enough. If you want better card draw, Dark Bargain and Moonlight Bargain is much better. If you want graveyard hate Suffer the Past and Crypt Incursion are good in this deck.

Terror is cute but how about Cast Down, Ghastly Demise, or Vendetta?

Grave Betrayal is cute but it’s really expensive.

Chainer, Dementia Master is awesome. Some board states become auto wins with Chainer in play and if you really need a creature back, you can kill it easily.

I will throw out Illness in the Ranks seems loose. It really only works if you get both it and Orchard in play and that seems a bit magical Christmas land-y. I personally wouldn’t play it but that’s just me.

Oh! Isolated Watchtower and Arcane Lighthouse. Virtually No downside and gives you an out to hexproof creatures.

Tasigur is fine, he's just not as big a body as Gurmag Angler. There's no specific reason against it, he's undoubted value, but given the nature of our graveyard there are frequently going to be things in it we don't need or want to stay there (so we can cast the Ruinator) and it gives the opponent a bit too much control, feel free to try it out, but I'm not certain of it's value.

The no group: Commandeer is definitely too much jank, the Corpse Connoisseur is a touch expensive and unnecessary even unearthing him, and I think you know why Mass Polymorph doesn't go in the deck. lol

The maybe group: Corpseweft is beautiful jank, worth a try, but it may be too jank. The deck is already running about as many creatures and as few lands as I could reasonably get it, and it's frequently not guaranteed to be able to cast the Ruinator turn 3 so I don't think going down lands, control, or creatures for it is a good idea. Crypt Incursion is too mana expensive as graveyard hate for the opponent, too indiscriminate for self graveyard hate, and really only relevant in a few matchups for life gain. However it might work out in the sideboard. Forbidden Alchemy really good, but I think it's too mana expensive, I'd rather run Opt, Nagging Thoughts or Plunge into Darkness... Which I might look into. All of these are viable for a more budget build of the deck for certain, along with Halimar Depths and Mortuary Mire.

The Yes group: Extirpate/Surgical Extraction are obvious includes that I totally missed maindeck and might fit in somehow, maybe going down the Fatal Push and the Nihil Spellbomb for a pair of either. Logic Knot if you're building this deck and you're smart, that card goes over Ulamog's Nullifier in the sideboard. I'm not smart, so I'm going to do some soul serching.

Are these cards to janky to be included? :P

Commandeer

Corpseweft

Corpse Connoisseur

Crypt Incursion

Extirpate You know, for tutoring out more Scourges or being sweet mainboard hate! Forbidden Alchemy

Logic Knot

Mass Polymorph Oh such sweet, sweet jank! xD

Is there any particular reason why this deck shouldn’t run Tasigur, by the way? :o
