Infernal Darkness Discussion

Jamminmagician on Blood Tax

Ben's Recommendations:

Ramp:

Worn Powerstone

Mind Stone

Armillary Sphere or Wayfarer's Bauble

Black Market

Burnished Hart

Solemn Simulacrum I know, he's annoying and expensive and in every deck but he RAmPS AND DRAWS AND IS COLOURLESS LIKE BLEH

Pristine Talisman Triggers your life-gain abilities.

Draw:

Greed

Gravestorm MAN that theming

Ob Nixilis Reignited one of THE cheapest walkers around

Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip

Krav, the Unredeemed and his partner Regna, the Redeemer can generate card advantage by searching for each other, seem to be on theme (life gain and tokens are both parts of this deck, see your commander for details, but krav specifically lets you draw a shit TON of cards. Also, gives you some sac outlet ability and ridiculously tiny activation cost)

Necropotence this IS a more expensive card and with good reason. But of all the "more expensive card draw" cards i believe it is the LEAST more expensive. Seriously this card blows games out. (SIDENOTE this works SUPER WELL with your axis of mortality, necropotence yourself to 1 in response to the trigger then swap with someone to go right back to 35)

Harvester of Souls Gimme card draw for your creatures. Tax'ing the hell out of the entry to hell.

Actually on-theme cards that are really mean:

Magus of the Abyss There's a REASON people refer to chumping every turn as abyss-ing

Infernal Darkness a card you can probably find for 3$ or less, ruins people's happy fun times (except you)

Call to the Grave See above regarding magyss of the abyss.

Patron of the Nezumi Pay the death tax

World Queller This one's especially spicy cause you can choose a permanent type you DON'T have one of.

Angelic Arbiter A little high on the curve tbh but does make your opponents choose combat or spells

Aura of Silence I really think this is a must-have card for this strat.

Archfiend of Depravity New government law, every player shall have no more than 2 creatures. Communism at work, the government gets as many as it wants.

Magister of Worth A VERY thematic board wipe. (it will ALWAYS be a board wipe)

Cliffhaven Vampire For all those extorts and life linkers.

High Priest of Penance

Karmic Justice

Leonin Arbiter Seriously punishes decks with greedy manabases and green decks

Aven Mindcensor See Leonin Arbiter

Oathsworn Vampire This guy is great card advantage and a recurrable chump for your "symmetric" forced sacrifice effects

Windborn Muse Better than Baird IMO

Orb of Dreams EVERYTHING is tapped

Utter End Seems to me a better card than Mortify, even if it costs 1 more.

Thalia, Heretic Cathar

Hushwing Gryff Flash torpor orb fucks SO MANY DECKS

Descent into Madness Although this is only particularly strong if you have a huge draw-engine to keep exiling bad cards from your hand instead of permanents.

False Prophet HOW IS THIS CARD SO CHEAP???

Words of Waste Can be powerful but may require too much tuning of mana/draw to be actually good.

Kataki, War's Wage expensive but powerful effect.

That's all for now. too many options honestly.

Also depending on how much of an ass you want to be there are my two favorite cards in my muldrotha deck Contamination and Infernal Darkness. If budget isn’t an issue, Mesmeric Orb is a very nice card that plays with muldrotha very well.

This reminds me of old mono black control decks except you want to keep your commander in play which adds a bit of difficulty.

Maybe use Mirari to get more out of your spells? You can also add Pestilence and Sorin Markov. They seem to fit the theme and work well together.

Contamination and Infernal Darkness are other cards that might be worth considering.

Lastly, I have found Chain of Smog to be a fun and effective way to force everyone to discard their hand. You might find this to your advantage since your commander allows you to cast instant cards from your graveyard.

generalrenard on Using Muldrotha in Stax (WIP Primer)

2 months ago

I’ve playtested with the dredge cards before, CommanderAdbentures, and I haven’t especially liked them. The graveyard has been more of a way to replay cards that I have lost due to my Stax effects.

Megalomania: I really like the idea of using Forbid, and I will use it. This list has also sucked without Muldrotha, the Gravetide out, and that’s is why I suspect I need more protection for Muldrotha. If Crucible of Worlds is not in this deck, than that is a mistake in need of remedying. Contamination and Infernal Darkness are two options that I’ll add in in replace of other Stax carss as a test to see they’re potential. I don’t especially like Mana Web as I have no real way to break the balance of tap cards, outside of Vedalken Mastermind, I also could potentially use aa Mind Over Matter as a way to break the balance, but I have no real way to draw the absurd amount of cards necessary. The best option for that would be Life from the Loam.

Megalomania on Using Muldrotha in Stax (WIP Primer)

Second time i've seen someone try a stax build with Muldothra and I love both lists. One spell which might be a good addition here is Forbid.

I'm a bit concerned about how good of a stax deck it would be without its commander in play. Maybe going heavier on mana denial by adding Exploration, Crucible of Worlds, Contamination and Infernal Darkness. I would also take into consideration Mana Web as a way to screw control heavy decks.

Megalomania on Sultai Sadism

Took a second look at the deck and got some more budget-friendly ideas to share.

Dissolve can be swapped out for Forbid. This let’s you keep a countermagic in hand while filling up your graveyard in the process.

Infernal Darkness is another Contamination which you might want to try.

Creatures like Body Double and Necrotic Ooze will also be good additions considering the current theme of the deck.

Daedalus19876 on Chainer, The Re-animator

3 months ago

A few things :)

1) I'd very much run Hero's Downfall over Ruinous Path.

2) No Toxic Deluge?? It's (IMO) one of the strongest black cards ever printed.

3) I would suggest Rune-Scarred Demon over Diabolic Tutor. It can be reanimated repeatedly with Chainer.

4) Death Wind and Chill to the Bone seem like pretty weak removal here. Have you considered Malicious Affliction, or something of that ilk?

5) I'm not convinced you have enough draw effects. Have you considered Phyrexian Arena, Grim Haruspex, and Ancient Craving-esque effects?

6) Your curve is relatively high, and I'm not really a fan of Manalith and other 3-mana rocks. I'd focus more on cheaper rocks such as Mana Crypt and Mana Vault to accelerate Chainer, as well as Jet Medallion to make your spells cheaper.

7) Mono-black decks always love a copy of Contamination or Infernal Darkness if you feel like adding a cruel touch.

This is my mono-black deck, if you feel like taking a look for anything you might add that I've forgotten:

I'd take out Rotlung Reanimator and Conspiracy as the latter does virtually nothing without the former and the former is useless without the latter. Similarly I don't see Hell's Caretaker surviving a round much, especially since you only have one Lightning Greaves effect. Finally I see Contamination and Infernal Darkness getting you A LOT of hate, so those might not be worth it.

So, knowing you, I'm surprised this doesn't have Pox in it already and it seems like Small Pox wouldn't be a bad idea either. I'd also put Merciless Executioner and Slum Reaper in the deck to maximize those effects. While on creatures, I'd add Filth since the only win cons I see are creature damage and Exsanguinate and there's very little evasion in the deck. Lastly it seems like you could use more targeted destruction so Bone Splinters and Unstable Obelisk seem like good choices.
