Dark Ritual Discussion

bushido_man96 on Yawgmoth's Bargain (w/ Spicy Infinite Tech!)

15 hours ago

Looks like you've got quite the build here. I'm not sure there is much to add to it. I've noticed that the new Vilis, Broker of Blood has some nice synergy with Yawgmoth. He basically tuns every activation of Yawgmoth into two cards. He's a bit rough on the curve, though.

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder can be a solid source of tokens.

You might consider testing out Bubbling Muck in place of Dark Ritual . Dark Rit is good early, but later on, Bubbling Muck can make for some explosive turns.

I love this deck so much! One thing I would suggest adding though, is Isochron Scepter . If you pair it with Dark Ritual , Cabal Ritual , or Songs of the Damned with 3 creatures in the yard while Paradox Engine is out,you have infinite mana on the spot. Or if you already have tons of mana, works great with Demonic Tutor to get win cons immediately.

I feel like Aetherflux Reservoir is valid in this deck if you are going with life gain. Demonic Tutor would be good to add in cause you can search for any piece you may need, it is worth saving for. Since you are running firesong here is my firesong deck Life Burn. I recommend finding some of the really good life gain spells and others that may benefit firesong if he is out that control the board state. i would take out some of your creatures you seem to have excess of that do the same things but cost more. also Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , Land Tax , Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual are good ramp for the deck as well. i like the deck very cool.

I second the use of Ghoulcaller Gisa to create more tokens. Sac one Eldrazi, and she makes a bundle of tokens.

A ramp spell you might consider trying is Bubbling Muck . It has a better ceiling than Dark Ritual does. Another option that fits with sacrificing creatures is Culling the Weak . Not as strong as the Muck, but still an option.

I know I've mentioned this before, but I think you should add Volrath the Fallen to the 99. You can discard SEVERAL Eldrazi to his ability, making him really HUGE, swinging in for nasty amounts of damage. He does what you want; pitch Eldrazi, and attack with big creatures. And remember, he stepped out, he did not step down! :D

Love the deck, and I love mono black. I think Whisper, Blood Liturgist is an especially strong card. +1.

Force of Denial


Counter target spell that was cast by an alternative cost.

create a balanced mana duplicating non-permanent or non-planeswalker permanent card. see Nissa, Who Shakes the World - static ability, Dark Ritual

Vlasiax on Who let the Vamps out? (Edgar-Commander)

2 weeks ago

I personally tried to focus on 1 CMC vampires and Aristocrats subtheme, since we generate so many bodies with Edgar Markov . That's why I also run Pawn of Ulamog and Carrier Thrall for more of them and because I want to focus as much on black as possible.

Also what are your thoughts about running Culling the Weak and Dark Ritual ?
