Main things I'd cut: Sangromancer , Vindictive Vampire , Bloodcrazed Paladin , Blood Seeker , Temporal Extortion , Exquisite Blood . I don't think the lifegain does too much here.

Definitely add: Skullclamp (one of the best cards in the deck), Dusk Legion Zealot low impact, but you generally want to get a bunch of creatures out early, Viscera Seer super strong and again, this is a deck where you really want to start out strong, Painful Truths (the best draw spell in Mardu), Indulgent Aristocrat (super strong way to aggro people out while also getting a board presence early), Yahenni, Undying Partisan this just doesn't ever die and gets very big

I'd recommend: Nihil Spellbomb (I think this is almost always a mustplay in black.)

Phyrexian Arena should probably be a card draw effect that synergizes with your reanimator/sac themes, even an Elvish Visionary or Dusk Legion Zealot . Heart Warden is also pretty reasonable; mad respect for anything that powers out an early meren.

Nihil Spellbomb is a card that I promote for every black deck! It's cheap interaction, it's powerful, and worst case scenario it cycles for 2 mana. There's so much upside and so little downside. Perhaps you might like it over something like Grisly Salvage ; I think you sacrifice cheap things into your yard pretty freely, and less self-mill makes you less vulnerable to enemy grave hate. Or Green Sun's Zenith might not be quite good enough for you; it misses a lot of your combo pieces. Or you might cut both and toss in an extra land; 34 might a hair greedy.

Here are some creature cards I'd like to add soon:

Dusk Legion Zealot , Cordial Vampire , Cruel Celebrant Knight of the Ebon Legion , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Changeling Outcast , Vampire Cutthroat , Duskborne Skymarcher . Lastly Purphoros, God of the Forge for amazing damage potential when i get the spare cash.

Some other cards I would like to get are the following:

Shared Animosity , Coat of Arms , Diabolic Intent , Phyrexian Altar , Cover of Darkness , Impact Tremors

Some Cards I'm considering:

Debt to the Deathless , Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord

Finally some Wishlist cards I hope to get sooner or later, but are more pricey:

Cavern of Souls , Marsh Flats , Vampiric Tutor

Potentially. I'll add it to the maybe board. The thing with the one mana spells, is that we really want to double spell as early as possible. Not being able to get rid of threats we can't deal with early will basically make us lose the game on the spot. I think 9 one cmc discard spells is probably just right for a discard based deck. Perhaps a 2 cmc spell to fill out our curve that is more aggressive is right but I'm not sure. Dusk Legion Zealot or Sign in Blood might be better in that slot.

I actually REALLY like pawn, or Carrier Thrall especially. They're the perfect targets to fuel Skullclamp. 3 creatures for the price of 1, or 2 sacrifices and the mana to draw the second time for free. Just like Dusk Legion Zealot , he's incredible value as fuel for setting up stronger plays.

SP3CTR3_chelts Oh, I see. Thank you! Since my local meta is either burn (which I consider a form of control, as they blow up your threats much as a counter spell counters them) or vanilla control I usually run Asylum Visitor .

What about sideboarding out removal for ramp? e.g. Remove the pushes and paths for 4x Dusk Legion Zealot mainboard?

SP3CTR3_chelts Would it be better to have 2x Asylum Visitor s and 4x Dusk Legion Zealot s for immediate card draw?
