what about replacing Diabolic Tutor with either Increasing Ambition or Diabolic Revelation ? That way you can either tutor for multiple cards or it it ends up in your graveyard, still play it

Champion of Lambholt and Juniper Order Ranger help with a lot of the combos.

Increasing Ambition is also a great tutor.

If you want tutors then you can try Increasing Ambition or Beseech the Queen as they are pretty good ones for black. And beseeh the queen is good for when you don't have the black mana around.

Diabolic Tutor Increasing Ambition

Two nice tutors that aren't too expensive.

more tutors would be nice, Beseech the Queen , Demonic Collusion , Increasing Ambition , etc.

also, you could use Immortal Servitude to bring back ALL of your dead apotles.

Thanks for taking a look babydaggers!

That's pretty funny, I've actually got a Crypt Ghast and Cabal Coffers on the way that I ordered a few days ago, so they'll definitely be in. I like and actually had No Mercy and Subversion in the deck, but they were pushed out for other good stuff. I may find a spot for them again soon.

Of your suggestions, Nirkana Revenant , Phyrexian Processor and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief seem like they would be pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of Storm Herd , but it would make a massive army by the time I could cast it. As far as tutors, I'm fine with them, but if it's not a Demonic Tutor or Vampiric Tutor , then I would run something like Increasing Ambition to net more cards or pull out a combo.

@abdulbaqr -- I'm good with what you want, but I'd like to tweak what you are offering. How about Visara the Dreadful , Thespian's Stage , Increasing Ambition , Gigantomancer , and Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer ?

According to my calculations, there's a rough $.17 difference in your favor.

Email me if this is acceptable --

I find that Demonic Collusion is something of a hidden gem - at worst it's a 5-mana Diabolic Tutor , but with sufficient card draw it becomes repeatable at little actual cost, which means you can tutor for multiple pieces of your combo engine with just a single card.

With enough mana, you can even live the dream and pay its buyback by discarding Increasing Ambition , then flash it back the next turn.

Also, Beseech the Queen is good as well, although it's a bit more iffy if you're running tricolor depending on your mana base. Price
