Barookie on Korlash, Heir to Swamps

Profet93 Thanks for the mana base suggestions, I think Vesuva is a good land to add in because it can help copy any of my utility lands, and worst case it becomes a swamp and buffs Korlash anyway, Thespian's Stage seems a little less good seeing as it costs 2 mana to copy a land and I would rather use that mana to get down a good equipment or a juicy Go for the Throat. Big mana isn't really a part of this deck so taking advantage of Cabal Coffers with something like Deserted Temple is kind of overkill and could even put me down a swamp which is Korlash's base. Though Imp's Mischief is a great card I have never seen and will definitely be added in. Once again thank you for the suggestions and any more are definitely appreciated.

Let's work on black's most powerful feature, their mana base. I would add Vesuva and Thespian's Stage to copy coffers. Deserted Temple to untap them or play politics. Some better LD in the form of Strip Mine, Wasteland or even Ghost Quarter could be useful. You're running necro but no Reliquary Tower?

Imp's Mischief to stop counterspells and spot removal (ADD IT!)

I could add more suggestions of what to add and cut later but the mana base if first and foremost, thoughts?

What are your take in cards that protect Chainer, similar to Imp's Mischief like Boon of Erebos, Rush of Vitality, Unnatural Endurance or Without Weakness?

I was thinking in using those together with Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Rune-Scarred Demon to protect Chainer at instant speed. But I don't know if it is too much.

Cabal Coffers Thespian's Stage would you reckon getting these 2 lands and a couple of the other cheap options like Imp's Mischief and Nevinyrral's Disk, would be better than getting maybe a tutor and Necropotence ?

First lets work on the mana base, that's black's strongest power...

Remove... Barren Moor, Everglades, and Polluted Mire. You need swamps. Speaking of swamps....

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Vesuva, Thespian's Stage and Deserted Temple are your best friends. Urborg makes everything a swamp and cabal coffers, unlike cabal stronghold gives u for every swamp you control, not basic swamp. Vesuva and thespians stage copy urborg or any land you want. Deserted temple untaps cabal coffers and stronghold.

other potential, but not necessary additions can include the following...

Blue troubles? Cavern of Souls/Boseiju, Who Shelters All.

Gaea's cradle making too much mana? Strip Mine, Wasteland and other cheaper LD alternatives.

Expedition Map to find your lands.

You DESPERATELY need artifact/enchantment removal. This can be done through All Is Dust, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated, Nevinyrral's Disk, Oblivion Stone, Scour from Existence Ratchet Bomb and Spine of Ish Sah.

Bonus point: Spine + Trading Post = Repeatable removal. Trading post can help you discard horrible cards you got with erebos to gain life to draw more cards, discard a creature to reanimate later. Creature a chump blocker. Artifact recursion and sac outlet for both creatures and artifacts so they dont get exiled.

Want to be rude? Bitterblossom + Contamination. You can also use Reassembling Skeleton or even trading post tokens to feed contamination.

Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor or the cheap Beseech the Queen can help you improve consistency. Blacks biggest strengths are coffers and tutors, please use and abuse them to your heart's content.

Mind Twist - Best discard spell imo

Imp's Mischief - SUPER UTILITY. Redirect's counterspells to imp's mischief to save your torment of hailfire you spent 20 mana into. Redirect some extra turn spells that target, redirect path....and best of all no one expects it from the black player.

Blue players/instant speed interaction giving you issues? Add Mana Web with urborg to make them tap out always (unless they have rocks or dorks).

A funny idea could be to add Soul Conduit or Mirror Universe to switch life totals since black operates out of life loss. If you add Necropotence (or rather when you do), you can bring yourself to one life and switch with your opponent. Necropotence also has high synergy with vensers journal. Pay life, draw cards, gain life draw cards... necro can be used for redundancy with ur commander in case someone uses nevermore or declaration of naught.

Hero's Downfall for PW removal.

Alhammarret's Archive - For extra card draw.

Thats enough for now. Proxy whatever you cant buy or want to try out. I have several ideas for cuts if you're interested. Cheers!

great primer... Upvoted +1 btw it would be nice to see a turn by turn description of those 2 games in the event report.

Since one of the deck weakness are blue control deck why not add Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Ricochet Trap,Imp's Mischief, Burnout, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast or similar cards.

for the aggro decks you should try some cheap mass removal (for tokens and stuff like that) Pyroclasm Whipflare

Lightning Bolt seems like an odd choice in the deck, if its for removal i'll prefer Slaughter Pact for being cheap, Abrade for being able to destroy stack or combo pieces

This deck seems hella lit!!! I think you can look into cards like Reverberate, Imp's Mischief, Fury Charm, and Darkness (black fog ayyyy) along with Isochron Scepter for some fun shenanigans too :)

In retrospect, I also can't imagine what I was thinking with Null Profusion - really only hits in artifact egg shells and Quirion Elves escapes me entirely. Might have been brewing 75% Rashmi at that point. Replace both ideas with Autumn's Veil and Imp's Mischief. Mishief has been doing so well since my meta is getting annoyingly competitive and I take so little damage and Veil is an all star in testing. I'd like to give another bump to Tireless Tracker, It and Prophet do so well at different stages that I can't justify one over the other. Would love to know your thoughts on a potential cut from somewhere else.
