How about this,

My 3x Expedition Map $4.20, 4x Utopia Sprawl $8.92, 4x Chromatic Star $6.20


Your 2x Chromatic Lantern $7.40, 2x Gilded Lotus $8.36, and Increasing Ambition $.59


Does that sound good?

I have quite a few suggestions. Triskelion is an instant win combo with your commander.

Increasing Ambition , Demonic Collusion , Diabolic Revelation are all great budget tutors.

Exsanguinate is a must in all black decks. Necropotence , Phyrexian Arena , Bloodgift Demon are all good draw.

I run him as my general in my mono black deck. Feelin' Triskey Take a look, and let me know what you think. I run lots of ramp, and big threats. Tutor for combos, and end the game.

Both Tainted Field and Caves of Koilos are good choices to improve your mana base.

I'm unsure of your budget but I would replace Diabolic Tutor with Demonic Tutor (it's cheaper if you get the Revised version instead of the Duel Decks since people like the new art and frame better.) and Increasing Ambition with Diabolic Revelation . I personally run all 4 but if you are only going to run 2 black tutors I suggest those 2.

some combos;

Leyline of the Void + Bridge from Below You get zombies all the time, they can't kill bridge from below.

Howling Mine + Font of Mythos + Dictate of Kruphix = 5 card draw a turn

Howling Mine + Font of Mythos + Dictate of Kruphix + Notion Thief = 4 card draw a turn for you for each opponent.

Dream Halls + Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur + (Any blue colour spell) to cheat him in quickly.

Psychosis Crawler is a star especially if you get a lot of draw and the Reliquary Tower or Venser's Journal on board.

Xenograft + Ogre Slumlord or Xathrid Necromancer for mini tribal, choose rats for deathtouch everything or choose humans to convert anything of yours that dies to a 2/2 zombie.

Increasing Ambition + Dralnu, Lich Lord cast it once, then cast it again from the GY with Dralnu for the cheaper flashback cost.

I touched on tutoring, you have vampiric which is a great card. I would also work towards Demonic Tutor .

Some budget tutors that are good are. Increasing Ambition , Demonic Collusion , Diabolic Revelation , and Diabolic Tutor they are good.

I do the black ramp/tutor thing in my mono black deck. Feelin' Triskey pretty much 2 combos in there to end things, and ramp in to stuff. Work in progress, still trying to get some of the stuff I suggested to you.

I am not suggesting that you change half your deck. I am just going over the things my brother, and I have worked on for his deck, and giving you the info so you can work yours out. If you can think of any questions ask me. I think you have a good base, and with time will really work it in to a solid deck. Did you want to go combo route, good cards route, or something different?

Violent Ultimatum Wrath of God Supreme Verdict Terminus for more removal. Mana ramp Cultivate Farseek Explosive Vegetation Kodama's Reach Exploration Also might want to add in some mana rocks such as Thran Dynamo Gilded Lotus . Search cards Tooth and Nail Diabolic Tutor Increasing Ambition Treasured Find . Just a suggestion though there's more you can add in or take out.

Sheoldred, Whispering One is pretty much good in decks that can cast her. Maelstrom Wanderer and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker are some of the strongest bombs in the game and are affordable.

Fist of Suns is insane in Five-Color Bombs - and especially if you have Tezzeret to fetch it up for you. Since your general is Progenitus , cheaty stuff like Sorin Markov or Magister Sphinx can set up quick kills.

I'd look in to some big draw spells like Sphinx's Revelation or Blue Sun's Zenith , or super-tutors like Increasing Ambition . Price
