Victory at all mana costs....

I f*cking love Cut // Ribbons it's really the main reason I would ever play black. also Kills Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and Glorybringer

Hey Thorsgaming82, I really appreciate the suggestions! The power and value of Goblin Guide is undeniable (I have been beaten by my friend's own Jund Modern aggro deck that runs a playset more than enough times), and The other cards are also awesome inclusions... For an aggro deck.

I had the "Aggro" tag up until just now, but I feel now that this deck is more of a control deck. Lightning Bolt may still make an appearance in replace of Cut // Ribbons, but between Cut and Atarka's Command, I am not itching to switch out either (perhaps once I get my hands on Kolaghan's Command, then I'll replace them).

Pyromancer Ascension has no place in an aggro deck -- it's too slow to make any difference in those early turns, but a lategame Control deck can make amazing things happen with that!

Id say remove Cut / Ribbons and 1x Abrade to put in 2x Fatal Push

Honestly Cut // Ribbons is a bit slow, and as much as i love the idea of it, having 1x of it might not be advantageous. its a slot easily used to sideboard in better cards during specific match ups, but in mainboard whats the chance of drawing it? its nice having the ability to kill a 4 toughness creature, however it would be better to use Fight with Fire as Lyra Dawnbringer is a thing that you want to beable to clear from the board by using something other than Glorybringer & Unlicensed Disintegration (And its a good card for long games against control or people with mid range aggro decks) You have a ton of good removal that would help to kill 5 drops or Lyra in general but siding in one of these might be a good idea. OR you can use the slot to put in another Banefire or Abrade.

to be consistent id suggest the sideboard be

For a moment i am a bit torn between using Pia Nalaar & Kari Zev, Skyship Raider instead of Ahn-Crop Crasher & Earthshaker Khenra

Many decks use both.

also is there a reason to be using 4x Rekindling Phoenix and 2x Hazoret the Fervent? just a little curious.

Legendary_penguin_of_death that was the original list I saw that sparked my interest but I wasn't a fan of the enchantment ramp of Gift of Paradise or the potential color issues of BB for Cut // Ribbons in a deck with basically no other black. This list was the one that really stuck out in how focused it is and the inevitability Banefire can give once games go long. I am considering the black splash for (probably) 2 copies of Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and some number of The Eldest Reborn. This is still just an idea though, and I probably won't jump into buying Bolas until I do some testing and decide it's what the deck wants. It's got game winning potential though and this deck can probably make it to the planeswalker side more easily than anything else in standard currently, so that's tempting in itself. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thank you magicsheep!

Angrath, the Flame-Chained, Duress, and Authority of the Consuls are definitely going in the sideboard :D

Idk, I've never been a big fan of Chandra, Torch of Defiance. She's versatile, but I usually don't have mana to spend on her +1, the mana that she does generate in her other +1 is pretty limited, and her -3 I can get from Cut // Ribbons for half the price. But I'll try play-testing her in my deck to see if she fits.

Have you tried black with Jaya. I have and Cut // Ribbons seems like one of the best Jaya cards. Also try Primal Amulet  Flip seems like it was made for her.

I have looked at adding a few [Spellweaver Eternal] but I'm not sure they fit. I'm hoping to run control until I get enough mana to link Cut / Ribbons with Neheb and Torment of Hailfire. Think that would work?

Cool deck: First off just observations on the deck; Carnage Tyrant does Nezahals job so its an easy cut. Playing Gift of Paradise over Spring to Mind will help you survive early turns.

I don't see the point in running 2 mana- mana dorks since your ramp curve is 1, 3, 5 not 2, 4, 6. If you are going all in on ramp then Llanowar Elves would be a lot more effective.

Now if you ever decide to run black instead of blue then the following should be pretty useful:

Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Torment of Hailfire, Journey to Eternity  Flip, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Yawgmoth's Vile Offering, Demonlord Belzenlok, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Moment of Craving, Vraska's Contempt, Cut / Ribbons, Vicious Offering, Unlicensed Disintegration, Yahenni's Expertise, Phyrexian Scriptures, Golden Demise, Fatal Push

I found for dealing with aggro Festering Mummy is insanely good. Can deal with a lot of 2/1s or 1/1s and also trades in combat with 2/2s. To top it all off it is also a great sacrifice outlet.

Frankly, when you have enough mana and reanimation you can start to just ignore your opponents counter spells. With exception to syncopate.

The only thing you'll lose out on is Pull from Tomorrow though if all your cards are mana sinks its a non-issue.
