I love your deck. +1

Ghostly Prison , Windborn Muse , and Glacial Chasm are all good places to start if you want to avoid combat damage.

Mana Vault on turn one allows you to cast your general turn two. I imagine one of the challenges with this general is his costing 5, as lack of access to another color means your options for ramp are rather limited. By the same token, Charcoal Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Chrome Mox and the Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth combo are your friends as well.

Nausea is good for you, as it gives you a way to kill off a bunch of little creatures and rebuy their ETB triggers. As Non-Linear points out, Grave Pact is good in your deck. Nausea makes it into a one-sided board wipe.

God-Eternal Bontu seems kind of absurd, with all them creatures you can feed him. With all the sac-ing you're likely to be doing, you might have luck with Harvester of Souls .

I see Demonic Tutor is in your 'Maybeboard.' I feel that this should be in the main deck of any black EDH deck if at all possible. It simply gets whatever you need more efficiently than anything else can.

Qarsi Sadist allows you to drain an opponent for two at each end step, if you have it exploit itself each time and Shirei stays on the board.

Night of Souls' Betrayal is an interesting thought. With a carful build, it could probably bust the deck wide open, as it auto kills each 1/1 and then brings them right back each end step. Pairing it with something like Burglar Rat , Skyscanner , Pilgrim's Eye , Black Cat or other such creatures seems simply rude as ****.

Finally, regarding the lands, I haven't had much luck with Crypt of Agadeem . You might want to replace that, Mortuary Mire and Memorial to Folly with basic lands. I also don't think Ghost Quarter is very good in EDH, unless your meta plays some powerful utility lands like The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or Glacial Chasm . Ancient Tomb is a better Temple of the False God , but it is a more expensive card.

TallKanz211 As someone who plays a very similar list: I can say that this deck does very well in multiplayer. I've been winning games where I knock out all 3 opponents with commander damage / combat damage. Though this deck can be hated on if you perform too fast or play too many spells in the early game and could find yourself playing 3v1. I find having a reactive play style works best until you can end the game with a strong finish. I personally run Blood Moon due to Maze of Ith only targeting Feather and one of my opponents uses Glacial Chasm .

Glacial Chasm does not prevent the life loss from Ad Nauseam , if that's what you meant by "Glacial chasm will prevent the damage."

Ad Nauseam is loss of life, Glacial Chasm only prevents damage dealt.

You have a Stomping Ground Nature's Lore is strictly better than rampant growth in this scenario. Also Three Visits But I wouldn't run any of those unless you're going to run creatures like Omnath, Locus of Rage (the value of land drops from Genesis Wave go way up) that take advantage of land you have. Also you're in green and WORLDSHAPER! is a great attacker if you have a threat of ramping in your graveyard. Every deck that tutors for lands should run at least a Ghost Quarter because Maze of Ith , Glacial Chasm , or a transformed Thaumatic Compass  Flip would ruin your combat steps and tutoring for lands in a 2 color deck is mana fixing already. It really depends where you're comfortable taking the deck.

The Kitty

This is Sassy. She's extremely sick right now, with what vets think is Toxoplasmosis - but they need to do an MRI and bloodwork to be sure, and she also needs hospitalization because she isn't eating. :(

I need help paying these vet bills, so the above cards and everything in my binder are for sale! Make me an offer on things in my binder, and please comment if you message me because I don't always get notifications. Thanks!

I'll ship under $15 in a PWE unless otherwise specified. For >$15 or if you want tracking, please add $3 to your total. Payment through Paypal upfront - I have a long history of successful trades on here.

Edit: I can also take a few commissions for alters. I can do simple replacement art (adding details) and border extensions with high-quality acrylics. Example, example. Have some more recent stuff somewhere, too. Email me to chat about prices & details!

This is a pretty cheap deck, but simply getting a powerful card like Gaea's Cradle or some early ramp like Green Sun's Zenith + Dryad Arbor and other tutors like Natural Order would make it a whole lot better. (And in some cases not cost too much) Another very good card to consider is Glacial Chasm because it can keep you protected while you ramp and can sacrifice it and secure the win.
