Trying to find a slot for Imp's Mischief, but I haven't had much luck finding a flexible spot.

Dash Hopes is only great if the deck is extremely aggressively attacks the opponent's life total (like burn/RDW), unlike the other black counterspell Imp's Mischief.

(which for all intents and purposes can be a counter, or even be superior to it - for example a redirected Thoughtseize is often debilitating)

Hey, I love the deck!

Exsanguinate with infinite/a lot of mana is a great wincon. Redundancy is always nice, so with that in mind, I suggest the following...

Deserted Temple - Goes infinite with cabal coffers enough swamps and rings.

Vesuva - Another cabal coffers to fuel Exsanguinate.

Mirage Mirror - Utility and another cabal coffers to fuel your wincon

Candelabra of Tawnos - Untap coffers, and utility lands

Trading Post - Utility. First ability helpful for necro (although discarded is exiled). Second for chump blocker/contamination fuel. Third sac outlet and artifact recursion. Fourth prevents artifacts from getting exiled (ex: rings) as you can sac in response.

How do you deal with artifacts and enchantments (Ex: Rest in peace/null rod)? Ugin, Karn could help. Maybe Spine of Ish Sah (synergy with trading post)Imp's Mischief is fun too

Corpse Dance to bring something back, sac it get tokens.

Hey Sicohippy!! It's been a while since I commented on this deck. Reading your description a couple things come to mind...

  1. Thank you mentioning me in your description, I truly feel honored.

  2. In your draw your whole deck tab, you need to put rings in the second list (you mention it in the description and the first list, but fail to put it in the second). Not sure if it matters, but just thought you would want to know.

  3. For mana denial, dont forget Trading Post acts like Bitterblossom in a sense. Moreover, don't forget it's synergy with Spreading Plague (I don't know how many white creatures you face in your meta, but many have pro black so from my understanding, you can destroy them since the plague doesn't target).

  4. For your "strong maybe" under maybeboard.... Corpse Dance is great, I just added it. But BEWARE! If they counter it, you will need to get your general back another way. Might I also recommend Imp's Mischief? Counters counterspells, and many other useful purpose. No one expects the black player to counter or redirect a spell. Defense grid seems a little weak depending on your meta. Sideboard card? Expedition Map is GOLDEN! Use it to find Urborg or Coffers or any nonbasic land you need! I added a tabernacle to my deck The Descent Into Darkness and it REALLY pulled its weight, ESPECIALLY against token decks. However, be careful with Army of the Damnned!

I run the george combo in my Tymaret, the Murder King deck. so, Ill tell you what everyone tells me: Lyzolda does it better. But +1 for goin against the grain. Nice list.

A few things Ive learned along the way to get the CMC lower for Ad Naus and Dark Confidant. I recommend Toxic Deluge in place of Blasphemous Act. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is awesome but, 6CMC really hurts, and I don't see him advancing your strategy. Maybe trade for more interaction like Imp's Mischief or more draw like Necropotence. And you already have Sidisi for a reanimation tutor, Id drop Rune-Scarred Demon for Dark Petition. Insidious Dreams is sweet if you have a grip of cards in hand, but Diabolic Intent can be better if you have enough fodder. And depending on your meta, swap Go for the Throat with Slaughter Pact.

I like the idea.

You could add a few more spells that change the targets of spells, like Divert, Imp's Mischief, or Captured by the Consulate. I'd also shore up the manabase a bit, maybe add fetch lands like Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, and Warped Landscape and some mana rocks like Obelisk of Esper and Commander's Sphere.

Almost half a year later, I added in your suggestion of Imp's Mischief. I also added a couple other goodies. Let me know what you think :)
