Also i would like to apologize for not being super active on fixing this deck, Corona got us all by surprise and kinda threw off my wallet for this stuff, i did just add K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth and as a little test i bought Imp's Mischief. i plan on going a lot further with this deck as its my favorite atm

GhostChieftain on Hatred vs. Howl From Beyond

Sure it is doable at 10, but you could have 5 extra mana to use on 1 or 2 more spells that turn if you use hatred. You could use the extra mana for a Praetor's Grasp getting a 2 cmc counterspell to protect your hatred or just use your own Imp's Mischief. 11 mana you can cast Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon give it haste and cast hatred in the same turn. More spells=more better. Earlier cast for the win is also better. Hatred is hands down the better card in edh. The only real question left imo is if it is more worth it for you to get hatred or save for something like Ad Nauseam, Dark Confidant,Demonic Tutor, or fetchlands if you don't have those yet.

Thank you casual_competitive and stinkybot!

I recommend the following changes to make this build more budget-friendly:

Chains of Mephistopheles -> Mind Rake or Imp's Mischief

Mana Crypt -> Lotus Petal or Arcane Signet

Imperial Seal -> Insidious Dreams

Vampiric Tutor -> Diabolic Tutor

Liliana of the Veil -> Syphon Mind

Thoughtseize -> Mire's Toll

Also, you can take out the 5 fetchlands for 5 Swamps.

This deck looks awesome, do stupid shit and dont get punnished for it by abusing Sundial of the Infinite, life manipulation and "cant lose" cards, personaly Im probably gonna add Grand Abolisher and maybe something like Imp's Mischief ,since if the Sundial trigger would ever get Disallowed I would flip the table

MrKillStar on Spending Life Like It's Free Money -K'rrik

Price of Knowledge, Nightmare Incursion are big black spells, but has only one in mana cost :(
Imp's Mischief with K'rrik, troll misdirection in black for one mana and some life? Maybe? :D
Behold the Beyond, Grim Tutor, Increasing Ambition - some juicy tutors.
Sadistic Sacrament - pure cost (+7generic for kicker) could be pretty good in K'rrik deck.
Cavalier of Night, Doom Whisperer - more big juicy black creautures.

Mono black has a lot of stuff to work with, as does vamp tribal. With the deathtouch/lifelinkers, P/T boosts are good. I much prefer stuff like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Indulgent Aristocrat or Cordial Vampire in this kind of list, but bad moon will work.

The big advice I have is; plan your sideboard. Knowing that you can hate an entire FNM's meta out just by packing 15 Duress variants in your sideboard is great. Knowing that its a transformative board into Hypnotic Specter control is also great. Some notable options are Imp's Mischief, Whip of Erebos (the recursion is super good), Lashwrithe (build your own wurmcoil) or good old Sign in Blood.

Not much of a fan of Deflecting Swat as my commander tends not to stay on the battlefield for too long. If your commander isn’t out when you need them you’re practically casting a Cancel in EDH.

Don’t get me wrong though, hard counter spells in non-blue are pretty good, but I think I would rather run Imp's Mischief (or Ricochet Trap if the meta was heavier on blue.) Neither one has that satisfying gotcha effect of casting something for free when you’re tapped out, but paying a set 2 mana cost (or 1 mana cost if you only care about stopping counterspells) I find to be a lot more reliable than a conditional 0 mana cost even if that condition is easy to meet.
