Everlasting Torment Discussion

If you run Melira, Sylvok Outcast you can get some nice combos going, such as with Everlasting Torment and Noxious Hatchling.

Since you have stuff to manipulate counters, you may like Thief of Blood(it'll also sap any counters for any pesky opponent artifacts and such)

Butcher of Malakir should be in there too.

If you have the money, for 2-5$ you could pick up Lightning Bolt over Bolt of Keranos, but for what it's worth you're better off with things like Blasphemous Act for board clear.

I'd drop Bloodcrazed Neonate myself. Everlasting Torment turns Olivia into 'give creatures -1/-1 counters and buff herself', as does Fists of the Demigod

Deck looks fun!:D

Oh boy, that Everlasting Torment left me salivating for a playset of them. Thanks for your valued input.

Jace's Sanctum has no business in modern, I think. If nothing else, you get the same effect, but on a creature, with Goblin Electromancer. Besides, the cheaper your spells become, the less you get out of it (you get nothing if your spell doesn't have any colorless mana in its cost).

Everlasting Torment could actually be a sideboard card, but not mainboard... just imagine a burn-playing opponent looking at you playing that, with eyes full of gratitude.

One other thing, Jace's Sanctum is too slow for the effect it has. A card like Everlasting Torment has more of an effect, shutting down life-gain, letting you handle indestructible and stopping damage prevention.

You might also want some bounce to handle enchantments or planeswalkers, cards like Void Snare or Cyclonic Rift for example.

On Guttersnipe, replacing it with Kiln Fiend, Stigma Lasher or even Thermo-Alchemist. Thermo-Alchemist is the closest to Guttersnipe, where Fiend is an aggressive beater and the Lasher shuts down life-gain and hates on indestructible thanks to Wither. On the subject of hating indestructible Everlasting Torment is a great card for this...

As a fellow mono-black player, I've gotta support what you are trying to do, so +1, but I have quite a few suggestions:

  1. Since you are in mono-black, I'f suggest Victim of Night over Doom Blade, since Victim of Night is the least conditional removal spell in black.

  2. I'd highly recommend swapping out Vampire Nighthawk for Gifted Aetherborn, the card is more on curve and would allow you to be more consistent with what you are trying to do since the 2/3s are usually roadblocks by themselves anyway.

  3. Run Phyrexian Arena over Sign in Blood and a Duress, since continuous card draw is what really turns on the power of a mono-black deck.

  4. I'd move Duress to the sideboard altogether, since you really will noly bring it out for control/combo matchups, the best discard cards are Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, but since you are on a budget, Wrench Mind or Distress are the best budget options.

  5. I'd honestly ditch the 2 Tombstalker for 2 more Stromgald Crusader, since the Tombstalkers are usually only good after you use cards like Smallpox anyway, and Crusader is a better mana sink.

  6. Since you don't have a lot of black mana symbols to take advantage of, I'm unsure if Gray Merchant of Asphodel has such a good pairing with Lashwrithe, I'd honestly reccomend just playing Squelching Leeches, but that's your call.

  7. The deck needs a sideboard plan, I'm sunsure what your matchups are, but good cards for mono black sideboards on a budget are Duress, Pithing Needle, Ratchet Bomb, Nihil Spellbomb, Lost Legacy/Memoricide, Hero's Downfall, Vampire Hexmage, Everlasting Torment, and Rain of Tears.

Let me know if you'd like any more help!
