Gray Merchant of Asphodel Discussion

Thanks again larcewayreth,
I will keep Corrupt in the maybeboard and after I build this deck IRL and get some testing with it i might add it in if i would need another win condition.
I don't plan to invest in this deck more than 25$ so I will probably never get Phyrexian Arena, but I'll keep it in mind if i decide to invest in this deck.
EDIT:Haven't noticed the new comment while writing it
- Bloodgift Demon Seems like a great card I'm definitely adding it to the main board.

I'm loving this deck! How often are Debt to the Deathless and Gray Merchant of Asphodel vital for a game you have played with this deck? Merchant i see the synergies but I'm not seeing where debt fits in.

I understand budget concerns, totally. I would still try to keep an eye out for the extra copies of Abyssal Persecutor. It should be like $2, so you could pick them up over time or maybe trade into them. It'd be worth it. A single copy of Corrupt is also an option (also a budget card), as I have won many games off a late game casting of it. It's great going "Corrupt for leathal" and having your opponent go "Wait... What?". Lol. Also, Phyrexian Arena is a really really strong card, it's not exactly budget ($3-$4), but it should be on your radar when looking at trades binders. And you're welcome, Mono-black is my favorite build, so I'm glad to help. And, if corrupt doesn't seem like your thing, Gray Merchant of Asphodel can do a similar effect by taking advantage of your black devotion.

Recurring Nightmare is on the official banlist, by the way.
In EDH, you want to try to get as much value as you can from each spell. Or in a couple of cases, there is a better card out there than what you are using. As such, I would replace these with the following:
- Stoic Rebuttal >> Counterspell
- Smelt >> Vandalblast, Shattering Spree, or By Force
- Murder >> Hero's Downfall
- Cannibalize >> Malicious Affliction
You may want to consider adding more ramp to the deck, as right now you have a lot of high cost spells. The first step I would do is to add the different signets for your colors (i.e. Rakdos Signet). Other mana rocks that you might consider include Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, and Chromatic Lantern.
I hope some of that helped.

Sin Collector, Entomber Exarch, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Shepherd of Rot if you go the zombie direction. While expensive, Grave Betrayal is great if you go the whole stacks directions with Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Fleshbag Marauder, Slum Reaper, Butcher of Malakir and those guys, which I have in my Meren deck, and I don't want decks too similar.
