Increasing Ambition Discussion

Gidgetimer on Need help making a budget ...

I mean there are the obvious mana base improvements (fetches, shocks, tangos, checks, filters, Arcane Sanctum, even gain lands and scry lands). And I feel it is a bit lean on win conditions. The problem with offering help on EDH decks though is that we have no way to know what the decks they are going against are like. If there is no one else at the table with creature removal Felidar Sovereign and a few beaters are sufficient win conditions. If the meta is full of removal than you will want at least 6-7 different win conditions and tutors to find them.

On the subject of tutors I would suggest running a minimum of Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Revelation, and Increasing Ambition. The strong point of black in EDH is the unconditional tutors and unless your playgroup has something against tutors in general those three should be suitable for even the most budget playgroup.

Some suggestions

I'd advise that you drop the discard sub-theme. It is weak in EDH, and it's not a big part of your deck.

I think you need Bloodchief Ascension in the deck as well. I'd dump Duress for it.

With Cabal Coffers and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in the mix, you should seriously consider running Expedition Map.

I am missing Exsanguinate and some good doublers (e.g., Nirkana Revenant, Doubling Cube, Extraplanar Lens). I'd drop Oblivion Stone and Perilous Vault for those.

If you stick with the discard theme then add more reanimate spells and Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodghast, and maybe Bloodsoaked Champion.
