@ DrkNinja LOL...I am sorry not sorry for your lost. All hail that is The Frog . Do not speak of such ill conceived words, one must be blessed to have the frog come becketh each turn~ ;P

On another note I can see why you don't like it but in against my high powered meta, Spore Frog has saved my ass multiple times over, I worship the Frog lmao, that and Blood Pet as well!

@ DiverDown Yes you see the light -high five- buddy!

@ IAmTheWraith That's what I was planning to do eventually haha, I'm actually stuck on who to do for my mono commander, I built Nahiri, the Lithomancer for mono , Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief for mono , and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma for mono . Picked ot Zada, Hedron Grinder for mono .

Poggy on Favorite Voltron Commander and why?

I've had Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief voltron deck for awhile, and I recently built a Ghalta, Primal Hunger voltron deck. Drana has built-in removal while buffing herself, and Ghalta is a big, stompy green deck.

Dark Impostor is another removal spell on a stick that exiles the creature it targeted as well as gains its activated abilites, all for low CMC and low $. Same goes for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief but she powers herself up for a quicker kill. Guul Draz Assassin and Big Game Hunter also fit into this category.

For single target kill spells: Sever the Bloodline is a bit overcosted for most targets but is a pretty good token killer, Price of Fame is cheap enough if targeting opposing commanders and lets you dig through your library looking for answers. Tragic Slip is low CMC and can be a way around indestructible.

For mass removal, Mutilate and Black Sun's Zenith are inexpensive options. Nevinyrral's Disk can wipe the board of both artifacts and enchantments which black flat out has no real way to directly deal with.

But one of black's specialties is getting opponents to sac their owns permanents, especially creatures: Gatekeeper of Malakir , Chainer's Edict , Geth's Verdict , Plaguecrafter , Slum Reaper , Fleshbag Marauder , Diabolic Edict

For some additional artifact ramp: Charcoal Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Hedron Archive Unstable Obelisk with the Obelisk doubling as 'hit anything' removal and the Stone and Archive being some card draw as well.

...which leads into more card draw: Phyrexian Arena for steady card draw, Necrologia for that rush of cards.

For mono black Cabal Stronghold is a cheap option to gain extra mana late game.

I didn't price check everything listed above but nothing there should be too outrageously priced.

Hey welcome to T/O arcrayne!

So if your struggling with early game being way too slow than yes your curve is way too high already. Since Markov makes tokens for you real quick, you want to use cards that are low CMC as well as give you a bunch of effects to make it worth. Here are some example cards that you don't have that can be considered using.

Those are some examples of well costed creatures that are low to drop but does things as well. Cards that aren't useful are like these one below.

Hope that kind of explains why these cards are not too great in this build. Also some tech card is Faith's Reward , absolute life saver when it comes to saving your guys from a board wipe!

Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice!

Admiral_swiggins on Olivia, Mobilized for War (new to commander)

I'll check it out! Olivia does seem to have a lot of synergy with graveyard retrieval so I'll probably add more synergy with her ability for sure.

I'm also heavily considering adding the wombo combo of: Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood for the quad kill possibilities. I'll take a closer look at your deck when I get off of work, definitely rethinking decent amounts of my decks structure.

Cards definitely getting thrown in no matter what are: Olivia Voldaren (who thinking about it also makes creatures vampires lol)

Cards possibly going in: Aggravated Assault, Anger, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Crypt Ghast, Dark Ritual, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Nirkana Revenant, Rakdos Charm, Shred Memory, Sol Ring, Squee, Goblin Nabob, Insurrection

"woken up to be very dangerous" seems to imply an ability that causes it to be a good blocker when blocking and a good attacker when attacking. Valakut Fireboar seems to have the perfect kind of ability for this: as long as it's not "woken up to be very dangerous", it's not much of a threat.

There are a few cards in black that increase power at the cost of toughness, like Nameless Inversion or Carrion Howler. You could make it a 2/5, that gets +3/-3 when it attacks, and keep the "5 toughness when its calm, 5 power when its angry" ability that I think you were going for.

If you want the "bloodsucking vampire bat" flavor, an ability like Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief might work.
