Really cool deck! +1

From what I can tell, it looks like you're trying to have a mill deck that contains an infinite combo, but is not entirely dependent on it. That is okay, but I think you could cut some of the unnecessary cards and replace them with something like Serum Visions . That way you can find the combo faster.

If you want to keep the deck less combo and more mill, that's totally fine too!

To answer your questions above, Diabolic Edict and Doom Blade are both bad removal spells. Consider Victim of Night or Fatal Push

And no, Snapcaster Mage flashback will not allow you to use transmute, because to "transmute" a card, it must be in your hand in order for you to discard it.

Good luck!

Yall make some great points. I didnt love Sign in Blood either, but I figured with a couple lifelinkers I could make up for the loss of life. Lure seems like a great idea too, it'll also work well with Agent of the Fates . I'll drop the 4 Sign in Blood and add 2 Lure and 2 Diabolic Edict .

Fun deck, maybe some Diabolic Edict to deal with indestructible creatures or similar annoyances? It also might enjoy some cards like Alpha Authority to protect your best creatures.

I am kind of wondering if Diabolic Edict is a better choice than Doom Blade open to feedback here if I can pick some brains for different opinions on these two cards.

I just feel like if I am running against another black deck Edict would be a much better choice~

I would swap Diabolic Edict out for Liliana's Triumph as it can get through Leyline of Sanctity . Depending on how you want your deck to function Gifts Ungiven could be just better than Fact or Fiction , likewise I do not agree with having three Fact or Fiction and think you should swap at least one out for Hieroglyphic Illumination , as though Fact or Fiction could provide more card advantage, it can also get stuck in your hand during the early turns- when you would much prefer it to be Fact or Fiction .

I think you need a sideboard. Unless you don't intend on playing with one, I'll throw you some suggestions. Since you're on a budget, I'll consider that in my card choices too:

Discard Spells - Duress , Divest , Despise

Grave Hate - Bojuka Bog , Faerie Macabre

Creature Removal - Doom Blade , Diabolic Edict , Lightning Axe , Magmatic Sinkhole , Vicious Offering

Artifact Hate - Smash to Smithereens , Ingot Chewer

It's not super budget, but Vindicate is even better than Bedevil, and you could certainly run both. In legacy, I'd hate to not run any Swords to Plowshares type cards, or even a couple Oblivion Ring , which is crazy versatile, and can give you a win vs a wider range of decks. Otherwise, I'd reduce your mana base a bit in white to add a bit more non-white, IE remove 2 plains for 2 more Dragonskull Summit. You could also try Diabolic Edict , but I don't know if that's better than your white options.

Very quick to start swinging actually, and can swing hard if you can get Belle equipped. Lots of fun to play against. If you like the deck as is, I'd probably go with a label other than Legacy, which is very competitive compared to other formats.

From playtesting, this feels like it will struggle vs very fast decks, perhaps you could fit in some black removal? Innocent Blood can be a nice play on turn 1 vs an aggro deck that dropped a clock on you already, or if you're very concerned about your own creatures, you could use a one sided sac effect, like Diabolic Edict or Geth's Verdict for cheap options. Targeted removal might also work, like Smother , but I find the sac effects are pretty reliable, able to affect pretty resilient creatures.
