Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief Discussion
18 hours ago
I'll throw in my chips for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief. That's who I run for mono black simply because my deck tends to give me more black mana than I know what to do with and because Illusionist's Bracers make her lethal pretty easily. My deck is also heavily built for voltron and my playgroup is pretty casual with very little removal or control so maybe what's good for me isn't good at all tables.

I used to only build budget Commander until I got a lot of disposable income. Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Zada, Hedron Grinder, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Ephara, God of the Polis, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Tsabo Tavoc, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Tolsimir Wolfblood, Melek, Izzet Paragon, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, and Prime Speaker Zegana are all fun commanders you can build a budget deck around and be just as viable as an expensive deck.

I'll def have to think about including Lords as well but I'm not quite sold on the idea.
As for Baron Sengir, I have a copy of him kicking around, I feel like strictly speaking it's not a very good card but I keep considering to include him for flavour / nostalgia purposes. I do like the enchantment suggestions as well, and had considered them but felt like they were slightly too weak and didn't make the cut.
I'm staring to think the deck might need more direction and could be better served running Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief as voltron..
I haven't had much time for playing with the deck sadly, I think more playtesting is in order to figure out what works and what could be cut for better cards...
Thanks for all the advice!

Holy shit why don't you have these in your deck cards
Cards I think you should add
Also I would say to try to stay around 30 creatures max in a Voldaren deck

LittleBlueHero that's some nice synergy right there! Now all I gotta do is manage to trade for it or get lucky and open him in draft, because the card is quite expensive... You also reminded me that I should take a closer look at Amonkhet to check what cards would be of interest for my decks :)
Thanks for your input Triton.
Bonds of Mortality looks like a strong card, however the main reason I'm playing Archetype of Endurance is to grant my creatures hexproof, the main reason for this is that one of my opponents plays Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief as her Commander, she also makes tons of black mana, and so getting some hexproof protection comes in very handy.
If I can get my hands on Rancor it will very likely go into the deck.
Someone else already suggested Hero's Blade and I aggree it's a strong card, once I acquire it I'll definitely add it to the deck.

I recently made some changes to my deck, because the last time I played it, it wasn't really effective. I felt that the average CMC was waaay too high and also had a lot of problems to draw cards.
So I made some changes (as you can see in the "updates" part). I've also put a number of cards in the maybeboard. Those are cards I own.
What would I like you to do?
Check out my deck and point out what troubles you think I can run into, also if you think something in the maybeboard should definitely go in the deck, please let me know (and provide a card you think I should cut).
Commanders my friends use: Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Ephara, God of the Polis, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury (yes, we started playing the format starting with Commander 2014)
Thanks for the help everyone!

Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief is always a good mana dump and has the potential to make oodles of zombies with Gisa, sac the first after you swing obviously. I also think Black Market would help you get your big nasties out easier.

With the number of -1 -1 counters you are distributing I recommend adding more things with Proliferate than just Grim Affliction such as Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Core Prowler, Spread the Sickness, and if you add artafafacts to sacrifice Throne of Geth. I would also ramp up the grave yard recursion. Phyrexian Reclamation can help you get your creatures back Really your strength is in numbers. I would also think that Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief might make a better general. she might as well read kill their biggest creature and attack for half lethal general damage.
Thanks for the up-vote. You will get mine when this is more efficient.
