Hey guys, i need any tips or advice for my deck My Mono Black!. I've got a lot of other cards and i can buy a lot more... for instance Dread isn't definitive, i've a lot of others 6CMC creatures here.

May I also suggest three cards I will be putting into my Nekusaur deck? All are good discard synergies. Dread, Hostility, and Guile. Allowing to shuffle your graveyard back into your library is a great help!

Love the deck, I used the combo lines to greatly improve my own Gitrog deck.

Just wondering if Vigor or Dread would be better than Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, it seems like he would never be cast unless you somehow had a huge amount of mana but no combo or cards in hand, I think shaving off 4 life from an Ad Nauseam would be worth it compared to this edge case.

Have you thought about running Nekusar, the Mindrazer as the commander instead? Underworld Dreams seems like it would fit well in here, maybe in place of something like Sulfuric Vortex, which would hurt you as well as the others, and doesn't seem to really fit with the discard theme. It also doesn't seem like Oversold Cemetery fits, running alongside cards like Bottomless Pit and Planar Void. War's Toll looks good to me, Tectonic Instability does not, as it messes with you, too.

If you really want to reap benefits from cards like Phyrexian Tyranny, run Teferi's Puzzle Box. If you want to really get some more value out of Liliana's Caress and Megrim, give Memory Jar and some other wheel effects a try.

Other creature options to consider are Dread and Archfiend of Depravity.

Hope that helps. It looks like it would be fun to play.

Abbanation01, RobotCowhand pretty well sums it up. Add to that assessment that No Mercy is not threatening unless they attack me, and it is a much better value. I played Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts way back in the beginning of this deck's development. It came out way to late to have a really strong effect on the game. By the time that 7 drops are being played, the effect of redirecting attacks is much less potent, and the big bomb on the table makes that threat calculation much more likely to send things my way. It wasn't worth it. I don't even have Dread in it, and I would likely, and at one time did, play that over Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Painful Quandary is perfect for your next tutor after destroying your opponents hands. Some cards you might want to add. Banshee of the Dread Choir, Scythe Specter and a nice combo plus fits the theme here is Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank one damage to any opponent will kill then or mill them and gain you lots of life. If you want protection from creatures? If your hand is empty like everyone else's hands? then Ensnaring Bridge works great here. Other good protection is Dread.

I see you have Magus of the Coffers! With only 6 swamps you can make infinite mana. Just add Sword of the Paruns and or Umbral Mantle one of these on your Magus of the Coffers and 6 swamps is infinite black mana
