Sorry for the late reply my man... been kinda busy.

Overall things look good. You may want more card draw and I'd switch your Dimir Signet out for Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Dominance, and Talisman of Creativity... the life loss is a plus here. Midnight Reaper, Baleful Strix, and Greed are all good options here for some more draw power. Herald of Secret Streams does amazing things here.

Wrath of God, Rest in Peace and Merciless Eviction all seem like cards that should definitely be in here. We would also definitely recommend some more ramp. An EDH deck without Sol Ring is almost unheard of. For your colour combination it would also be recommended to add Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy and Orzhov Locket. Then there is draw options. Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, Greed all come to mind.

Hope this helps.

Not a bad start. I do have a few suggestions for you and I'll try to keep things budget friendly (so no low hanging Teferi's Protection ).

Draw: Easily the most important thing in the deck. Drop your 1 time draw like Read the Bones and consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Twilight Prophet . I run all the permanents (Skullclamp and Champion of Dusk) but also have Necropotence and Herald's Horn .

Finishers: Door of Destinies does nothing for your current board, requires gas to essentially feed it afterwards, and it costs a lot for aggro. Consider Reconnaissance (2nd post just for this card) and Shared Animosity .

Board Protection: Rather than Unbreakable Formation, consider Boros Charm which protects all permanents. Scapegoat is also nice as it allows you to dodge hard to dodge wraths (-X-X, sac, exile, etc.). Granted Scapegoat's a little better if you run Purphoros, God of the Forge .

Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down, I can help suggest cuts. In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Not a bad start and good job keeping your avg. cmc. down on a budget. I do have a few suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.

FINISHERS: Coat of Arms helps everyone and can easily backfire. Door of Destinies does nothing for your current board, requires gas after to get it to do anything, and it costs a lot of mana in an aggro deck. Consider...

Shared Animosity - Self explanatory and gross.

Mirror Entity - Anthems and +1+1 counters are added on top of base P/T.

Reconnaissance - My favorite finisher here. It allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat. Drop Throne of the God-Pharoah if you add this... they're a severe nonbo together.

CARD DRAW: Drop your 1 time card draw like Read the Bones. I run all of the below cards, they're needed. Consider...

Dark Prophecy (and Necropotence if you have one), Skullclamp , Greed , Twilight Prophet , Champion of Dusk , and Herald's Horn .

Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down, I can help suggest cuts. Also feel free to check out my list for ideas, it's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's also over 150 comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I have several suggestions for you but this is a pretty good start.


Stromkirk Captain

Finishers- Coat of Arms helps everyone.

Shared Animosity

Reconnaissance - Allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.

Mirror Entity - Great mana sink... plus anthems and +1+1 counters are applied after.

Draw- This is probably the most important thing in this deck. I literally run all of the below cards plus what you run... it's needed.

Dark Prophecy



Herald's Horn

Twilight Prophet

Champion of Dusk

Anti-Wrath- 2nd most important category after draw.

Teferi's Protection

Scapegoat - helps you recover from hard to dodge wraths (exile, -X-X, sac, tuck, etc.) and get your eminence triggers again or with Purphoros you can bounce your board to finish everyone off outside of combat.

Initially looking at the list there are too many lands. I would say cut down to 36 or 37. Your mana curve is mainly 3 drops so 45 lands is too many. You don't need Unknown Shores and Evolving Wilds since you are mono black. Cutting those lands frees up 8 or 9 extra card slots.

Instead of Hex, I suggest Plague Wind and/or In Garruk's Wake as they are better board wipes (better to have more than one piece of board wipe). Mutilate is an interesting option since you are running a lot of swamps. Or use all Snow-Covered Swamp and try playing Dead of Winter .

Another tutor to consider is Mausoleum Secrets . I've always wanted to play this card but don't run many black decks that can take use of it.

Consider some other card draw options to help prevent you from running out of gas. Such as: Night's Whisper , Read the Bones , or Sign in Blood . Maybe Phyrexian Arena or Greed

Lightning Greaves would be a good addition to the deck. Gives your commander haste and lets you use its tap ability right away. Plus the protection of opponents not being able to target it.

If you want another cheeky option, I think Thornbite Staff goes infinite with your commander. Equip to your commander, use your commander's ability to sacrifice a rat, the staff untaps your commander, then your commander's ability resolves. Rinse and repeat xD

For spot (single creature) removal you could also consider Defile , Murder , Hero's Downfall but Doom Blade and Tragic Slip are pretty good.

Other ramp cards could be: Wayfarer's Bauble , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel . Bontu's Monument may be good as well but not exactly ramp.

If you want to lean heavier into the creatures who make your opponents discard theme (by swapping out a current creature as 37 is already pretty high), Sadistic Hypnotist is a brutal card ;)
