Hymn to Tourach Discussion

Through the Breach seems sub-optimal here. Maybe to stick out a Steel Golem for instant blocking, but that's the only card you'd do that with. If you want to splice it onto Desperate Ritual, you need six mana to start, since you have to pay the splice cost when you cast the ritual rather than after it resolves. Through the Breach does help you get Dralnu, Lich Lord out there, but if you're paying five for it you might as well put Chromatic Sphere/Star in that spot since it serves the dual purpose that Manamorphose does. In general I think that a lot of carefully chosen removal, sweepers and draw spells would better suit the offering combo than mana acceleration.
Dralnu's jank payoff seems meager with lightning bolt. Suppose he's your offering and your opponent doesn't play Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek or Hymn to Tourach. Three timely land drops, exile SSG, cast Desperate Ritual, Manamorphose and Dralnu. Don't want to block with him. If he doesn't get bolted while under your control, turn 4 mountain, resolve Harmless Offering and then Lightning Bolt. Opponent sacrifices Dralnu and two of their smallest losses, one of which could have been Black Cat. The transaction cost you five cards, but cost the opponent only two cards or Spirit tokens. Path to Exile in response to your lightning bolt in that scenario would just suck. I would add Shivan Meteor if I was intent on harmlessly offering the Lich Lord.
Criticism always sounds so negative so I want to add that there's a lot I like about the deck too. I'll hand it to you for trying out a tricky style, I'm starting on a similar one.

Himhotepp That explains it :)
Thanks for posting the decklist too...my GF wants to join in the 93/94 action we have on the go in our kitchen so I made up a Mono Black Control deck for her to roll with.
Oh yeah, Hymn to Tourach rocks btw ;)

Hi Se7enfoot... Thanks for your comment on my B/W Clerics deck.
I have several suggestions for your deck, but before I present to you let me first address your comment.
Although your deck is B/W like the one you commented on, they meant to be different. Yours is a hybrid between life-gain deck and an aggro deck. Mine is meant to be exclusively aggro.
I have a hybrid life-gain aggro cleric deck, white the Daru Spiritualist and Shuko combo, but it is mono-white - have a look : http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/protection-clerics/?cb=1532856807.
Now, about my suggestions:
I noticed that you only have four one-mana creatures, coincidentally the Dark Supplicant only. That means that you'll never be able to have Scion of Darkness in the second turn. I would advise to add four one-mana clerics, like Mother of Runes or Soul Warden.
I don't see the use of Mikaeus, the Lunarch in a sacrificial deck. Instead, the sacrifices would acvtivate the morbid ability of Skirsdag High Priest. I would advise them instead. Plus, they are cheaper. In a way...
The Doomed Necromancer is nice, especially if you want to bring back again a Dark Supplicant and invoke another Scion of Darkness. But if you only have a Scion of Darkness, it is of no use. Put two Scion of Darkness, and one less Doomed Necromancer. Notice that the cost of the Scion of Darkness cycling ability is the same as Doomed Necromancer... so if you ever do not need the Scion in hand, just cycle it...
21 lands are not enough lands. I accept minimum 23 lands in a deck, but 24 seems the most adequate. Now, you have 21 lands, where one of them (Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth) gives no mana whatsoever. So, effectively, you have 20 lands. I would replace Urborg with two more useful lands.
