Glaring Spotlight Discussion

Pieguy396 on Looking for a a way ...

Glaring Spotlight is a one-use card, but also gives you the bonus of allowing you to hit your opponents' hexproof things. If you're looking for just protecting Hapatra, Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves both work well, as does Aspect of Mongoose.

Good deck. I like some of the ideas you have in this deck but I feel that some cards are too weak and you are missing some really good cards. Here are the weak cards:
Darksteel Mutation, this is a 1-for-1 creature removal card that works fine in a 60 card deck when you're dueling. Not so good in a multi-player game.
Pacifism, same as above
Suppression Bonds, same as above and high mana cost.
Vow of Duty, yes it pumps a creature that then can't attack you, but there are better options.
Vow of Flight, same as above
Vow of Lightning, same as above
Glaring Spotlight, if you aren't running spot removal, not sure what this is for.

Cards you might consider:
Bronze Bombshell, hits for 7 damage and you can bring it back with Hanna.
Varchild's War-Riders, Tokens for everyone!
Thought Lash, exile stuff before it hit's play.
Puca's Mischief, another card to move things around the table.
Taniwha, to phase out lands.
Psychic Vortex, is a maybe, could be fun.
Avaricious Dragon, getting rid of hand options.
Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, to keep creatures from attacking you.

I hope that these recommendations at least give you some new ideas. Let me know what you think. As always, temper these suggestions with your budget and your collection.

I really like to run March of the Machines and Ensoul Artifact.

And with Glaring Spotlight, Nihil Spellbomb or Mycosynth Wellspring, ensoul artifact makes for a fun early aggro option.

Phyrexian Rebirth or Scourglass could also be a good idea.

This looks fun w/ a pretty solid start.

Maybe consider things that focus on a chosen/shared creature type. Urza's Incubator, Belbe's Portal, or Descendants' Path come to mind for getting creatures out.

Buffing creatures based on creature type, Stoneforge Masterwork also works w/ the equipment subtheme. Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, Metallic Mimic, & Adaptive Automaton will buff all the cats, though Coat of Arms can be a little tricky for new players as it affects the whole battlefield. Also True Conviction doublestrike/lifelink is great.

Equipment for Khemba that are either useful & low cmc or not super expensive Basilisk Collar, Sword of the Animist, Trailblazer's Boots. How about a flying cat? As sanddeviljack mentioned there's Bladed Pinions, also Cobbled Wings or Fleetfeather Sandals.

Flickering creatures to get more etb triggers or avoid wipes is handy. I like Eerie Interlude for being selective, but if the creatures have shroud Ghostway works.

All that stuff falls under, might be cool in the deck. The one big issue I see with the deck is it's basically dead turn 1. There are 4 one drops in the deck, two of which are of no use that turn. Bumping up the # of one drops up to increase the likelihood of having a turn 1 play seems good. Wild Nacatl is the first one drop that I thought of, but there are a # of 1 drop cats that have some value beyond turns 1&2. Don't want a cat, there are other options, a couple not already mentioned include Glaring Spotlight or Authority of the Consuls.

Two minor issues; the deck is also light on mana rocks, w/just Sol Ring. More synergy w/ the lands the Commander will be getting would be nice too. Maybe Landfall triggers or things based on # of lands you control.

Good Luck.

Arcane Lighthouse is good with any targeted ability. Glaring Spotlight as well.

City of Shadows is useful for saccing.

Glaring Spotlight could be good, but I'm sure there are better options.

I feel like this might be better as a Glaze Fiend/Salvage Slasher/Salvage Titan/Vault Skirge/Stitcher's Graft aggro setup with Nihil Spellbomb/ Bottle Gnomes/Golden Urn/Glaring Spotlight/Gremlin Mine/Ratchet Bomb sideboard, or packing a more aggressive suite of disruption (Duress, Vendetta. Dismember etc) to survive casting bigger creatures.Good luck with the testing- here is my big list of regularly played cards, by no means complete Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox.

Izu_Korasu on Bloodrush, for a quick win

having Glistener Elf as your only infect creature one of the only creatures in the deck you want to cast, makes this deck feel disjointed.

consider Ichorclaw Myr and Viridian Corrupter for additional infect bodies.

and cards like Become Immense, Mutagenic Growth and Wild Defiance, Glaring Spotlight, Carrion Call and Veilstone Amulet may also be useful.
