Farsight Mask Discussion

griffstick on Secret Tech you have found!

I found Withering Boon to be a great inclusion in my mono black builds. We all know black has no problem getting creatures off the field. But it's that damn ETB effect that gets you. So that where Withering Boon shines. Rune-Scarred Demon ? Nope. terrastodon? Nope. You get the point.
Another good mono black inclusion I found myself putting in every mono black build is Imp's Mischief . This is a unique black effect that really catches people off guard. TAKING THERE EXTRA TURNS IS THE BEST.

Other neat tech I really like

Farsight Mask is a great card that more people should know about.

I feel like you have an aggressive deck, but it comes out too late without any control to back it up.

You will struggle turns 1,2,3, and sometimes 4.
Turns 5,6,7 you will be doing alright, but if you had a bad 1,2,3,4 you will be playing catch up on 4,6,7.
Turn 8,9,10. You don't have anything to carry you except Raksha and Jedit.

I play tested about 7 or 8 times and only drew one piece of equipment

A strong addition, if you can more reliably acquire equipment, Kemba, Kha Regent

Consider, either in addition to or replacing Raksha, Adaptive Automaton, Angel of Jubilation, Benalish Marshal.

Call to Arms or Crusade (Situational, but at 2 cmc these are good card).or other similar.

This deck would do better with faster lands. I found myself trapped for mana sometimes until turn five because of the double lands.

Now I say all this, but I'm rusty. I forget what five + player multiplayer games are like.

Drawing mechanics or fetching mechanics would help.

A couple drawing mechanicsAnvil of Bogardan, Abundant Growth (will help lands as well), Bargaining Table, Bazaar of Baghdad, Farsight Mask. Or something else. I'm not good with white/green.

Thanks for all the suggestions Faceless_Being! I'm more interested in the lower cmc draw cards, Phyrexian Vault, Carnage Altar, and Jalum Tome seem to fit that the most here. Farsight Mask is also a great one, but I already have it in here.

Nice list so far! +1 from me mate.

To address your card draw worry there are some decent and some not so decent choices at your discretion. Howling Mine, Tower of Fortunes, Loreseeker's Stone, Sandstone Oracle, Farsight Mask, Phyrexian Vault, Carnage Altar, Otherworld Atlas, and Jalum Tome to name a few, hope this helped slightly

Candles of Leng seems pretty good in a Commander setting.
Carnage Altar and Culling Dais seem really good with all the fodder you'll have for them.
Browbeat is one of my favorite red draw spells.
Coercive Portal could be fun, especially since your commander is indestructible.
Chandra Ablaze also has a good draw ability.
Liar's Pendulum is so much fun.
Solemn Simulacrum is ramp, draw, and fodder all in one.
Combustible Gearhulk, Aggressive Mining, Endbringer, Farsight Mask, Illuminated Folio, Mind's Eye, The Immortal Sun, Vanquisher's Banner, Magus of the Wheel, Wheel of Fate, and Wheel of Fortune all seem like solid draw effects.

Liquidbeaver: thanks for the suggestion, I definitely added Farsight Mask to my sideboard in case I find I'm drawing way more aggro than I normally would be. I can dig your justification for Siege-Gang Commander, it makes sense. He may just be one of the first to bite the dust should I find a better creature. Do you think Anger on top of Urabrask the Hidden is overkill?
