I like to think of nether void as the old "somebody else's problem". While you build up your own game plan, you put great pressure on most other decks by dropping this. But you make a convincing argument- it's too parallel.

A list of all cards I know you could run: Avatar of Woe Curtains' Call Dross Golem Infernal Darkness

These are uhh... suboptimal. But avatar at least offers decent removal. I have to ask, what meta do you play this in?

I feel like most ways of making this deck faster would also make it riskier, but the additional risk could be worth it. A lot of decks don't run that much artifact hate, so Darksteel Relic might not do too much for you. Even if you removed it, you'd still have 8 indestructible artifacts, which is more than most other pieces of the combo, so it could be better in the side board to switch in in games with some serious artifact hate. If your opponent doesn't run any artifact removal, it's essentially a dead card. Instead, you could either have more Phyresis , or more artifacts that make a creature unblockable, or maybe Dross Golem - it has fear, is cheap for you to cast, and in a pinch, it's still an artifact (but a bit too easy to remove). You could also switch out some of the creature removal spells or the discard spells for more pieces of the combo.

Also instead of two [Gurmag Angler] and two Relic of Progenitus in the side I would put two Nihil Spellbomb and one Dross Golem or Wall of Tanglecord (For blocking your opponents Gurmag Anglers or other big things) or Gravepurge or another piece of hate such as Doom Blade, Disfigure, Terror or Murder.

Hi hedgehog_henry,

Your deck is drawing almost exclusively from the standard card pool, but with the modern pool there are some cards which are direct upgrades. For example you have Workshop Assistant but Myr Retriever does the same thing and costs less to play. Another example would be Foundry Assembler, in a mono black deck with just swamps, why not play Dross Golem instead?

Your deck also seems to want to do two things, be Aetherborn tribal and be an artifact deck, that sort of schism tends to result in a less optimal deck. Which brings me to my next point, you aren't running 4x of any of your cards, not even an all star like Gifted Aetherborn, this means your deck will have little or no consistency over several games.

If you were wanting to go the black artifact route then; Vault Skirge, Phylactery Lich and possibly Scrapheap Scrounger, Glaze Fiend or Painsmith alongside Chief of the Foundry Ornithopter and Foundry Inspector this would give a reasonable artifact based aggro structure.

If on the other-hand you really want to do Aetherborn tribal then; Midnight Entourage, Adaptive Automaton, Weaponcraft Enthusiast and possibly Defiant Salvager and Flayer Husk alongside Aetherborn Marauder and Gifted Aetherborn, this is probably more mid-range than aggro, but it would be a start.

My last point is on removal, if a removal spell costs more than it isn't really viable. In mono-black on a budget use Victim of Night, Smother or Grasp of Darkness and if your not on a budget Fatal Push.

I hope that is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

I think Dark Ritual is only like 50 cents. It's just the printing that is expensive. Also I would advise adding a Dross Golem. It just seems pretty good in mono black.
