Infernal Darkness Discussion

Two gigantic oversights; Glacial Chasm and Infernal Darkness. Sac them on upkeep, cast them postcombat. And no Burnished Hart? No Dreamscape Artist? No Glen Elendra Archmage!?

Hey. I noticed your deck and I've got something similar. Thought perhaps we could trade ideas. Specifically, some cumulative upkeep cards for you. Glacial Chasm and Infernal Darkness are both basically lockdowns. Sac them on your upkeep, play them postcombat.

Well first of all, dropping my link at the bottom. But some all-stars include:

Dreamscape Artist is exceptional ramp.

Druid Lyrist, Elvish Lyrist, Elvish Scrapper, and Scavenger Folk remove artifacts & enchantments.

Glen Elendra Archmage is... hopefully going down in price thanks to the reprint??

Glowspore Shaman and Satyr Wayfinder.

Mulldrifter, Night Incarnate, and Shriekmaw are great and Evoke is great for this deck.

Plaguecrafter is a strictly better Marauder or Executioner.

Spore Frog is the best. The actual best.

Sylvan Safekeeper sacs lands (though she may be too $$), and Turntimber Sower benefits from it.

AEther Barrier seriously slows down aggressive decks.

Animate Dead can hit Muldrotha from the grave.

Excavation is nice.

Font of Fortunes, also nice.

Infernal Darkness is cruel. Sac it to the upkeep cost, cast it post-combat, and there is no enchantment removal in black. They could Seal of Primordium it once, but you just cast it again.

Sinister Concoction is okay budget removal, as is Soul Ransom.

Standstill draws cards.

Unbridled Growth is basically : draw a card.

Chromatic Lantern is FOUR DOLLARS RIGHT NOW

Courier's Capsule and Mishra's Bauble, good draws.

Expedition Map is good ramp.

Perpetual Timepiece is self-mill and woo!

Hey hkhssweiss, much thanks for the input! :)

I totally forgot that Vona's Hunger existed! :)) I'll have to watch how quickly I can get to 10 permanents.

I think I can try running Dismember; the -5/-5 is significant, compared to Sickening Shoal which might end up becoming a pitched Last Gasp most of the time. That one mana to pay can be a steep cost on when the game is down to the wire, but it lets me hit Atraxa, Edgar, and the like.

As for Extraplanar Lens, I'm actually going back and forth with it and Crypt Ghast, hence I haven't unsleeved my Snow-Covered Swamp.

Extraplanar Lens gets me two-for-oned in my meta, even when I use it as a Bubbling Muck. I also have trouble making the most out of it because I run a lot of nonbasic lands. Crypt Ghast dies to the Pox effects and other removal spells but it gives me Extort and at least I don't lose a land when they respond to it. I used to run Nirkana Revenant too, along with Caged Sun but it was too high on the curve, so they got cut out.

I do want to run Contamination so that I have 2 functional copies of Infernal Darkness, but I don't have the creature support for it.

Sadistic Sacrament was once part of the deck, but I ended up being able to regularly pay for the Kicker cost, which made me rather unpopular. I switched to Praetor's Grasp and added multicolor mana rocks so it can also act as an "off-color" tutor. However, I do still bring it out when I'm playing in a cutthroat environment.

To be honest, you can actually cut Infernal Darkness, and no you are not 'forced' to use the other enchantments or creatures. Sundial is just bad in this type of deck and can be cut immediately.

What a combo is when you use two cards that synergize to get a result that more than what the cards itself can do. An infinite combo is when two cards are used in conjunction to produce an effect that can loop itself thus repeating the result infinite times.

Contamination and Sundial has no synergy together, it essentially locks you down as well since your ending your turn and not allowing yourself to do any more interaction, you have to be able to break parity when you play cards. Ophiomancer is great and I would add that in. Same thing how Painful Quandary can work while taxing them. Additionally you would use cards like Mindtwist, Sudden Spoiling, Plaguecrafter, Mutilate, Syphon Mind, Persecute, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Praetor's Grasp, Sadistic Sacrament.

Plus they would fit your "Cruel" Theme :P

Contamination and Infernal Darkness is forcing me to use stuff like Ophiomancer, Bitterblossom or Sundial of the Infinite often locking myself up. I have to tutor stuff to be able to use it efficiently (that's how combo works, right?).

To put cards from maybeboard I need find a room for it - and a lot of it is taken by pieces mentioned above.

Hell no, keep Mana Web. It is SUPER good, it really messes with people and stops interaction and refrains them from casting spells on your turn. Same thing with Contamination and Infernal Darkness. I'm actually a little more iffy on Infernal Darkness, but yes I agree on more ramp. I use actually all the mana doubling black has access to because really, black is greedy we are here to trade our life to win. ALL OR NOTHING!

Some cards for mana ramp that I use is Extraplanar Lens, Caged Sun, Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Gauntlet of Power. Along with some additional low cost mana rocks.
