have you ever thought about including the swamps matter payoffs for some extra jank? Crusading Knight is huge and unblockable with Urborg and Darkest Hour, Karma can wipe people out late game and Kormus Bell lets you kill or bounce all lands if you want.

arcane_trouper, it provides you with more mana in tandem with Cabal Coffers, it enables swampwalk creatures, and it even makes cards like Karma into reliable win conditions.

Not that I think it'll come up, but be careful when running Bad Moon because if someone drops a Darkest Hour it can really turn bad lol.

The more I look into it, Green and White have a lot of enchantment hate cards for mono-black:

Luckily I don't think anyone has any of these so they won't be a problem for a while. I also just realised that mono-black has no enchant removal at all, I think the best bet would be Eye of Doom and just hope that you and the teammate pick better permanents than your opponents. There is also Scour from Existence but you're probably wanting the game to be over by the time you have 7 mana.

Mother of Runes and Stern Judge are not modern legal.

Giver of Runes is a close second to Mother of Runes which is modern legal, so that's a fairly easy swap if you like her in the deck.

Devout Lightcaster doesn't seem very good. I'm assuming you think that it can exile the opponent's lands when it enters, but lands are colorless, so Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth doesn't make them black.

If you're going hard on the plan of Karma + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , you may want to consider Expedition Map as a way to more consistently find your Urborg .

Your mana base is pretty bad for modern, if you're not on a budget, then Temple Garden will be a good include, as green mana for Spreading Algae that also helps cast the rest of your deck, if you want more than 8 green sources, then something like Canopy Vista is fetchable, or Razorverge Thicket is a better one, but isn't fetchable.

Your gameplan needs some streamlining too, are you killing your opponent with Karma ? If so, destroying their lands with Spreading Algae seems pretty bad. This deck seems to play similarly to a hatebears/death and taxes deck, so you may want to take a look at some of those to see if you want any pieces from there (mana denial etc.)

Hey again Kain, I saw your message regarding this deck on your Arjun deck page. These are the cuts I would make:

  • Banefire . Since it only hits a single target, even copying this won’t put you anywhere near eliminating even 1 opponent unless you have a ton of mana. Mizzix of the Izmagnus could make things like Banefire a little more impactful. Otherwise it is just an overpriced removal spell.

  • Comet Storm . Like Banefire, this requires too much mana to be good.

  • Fanning the Flames . Same as above.

  • God-Eternal Kefnet . The problem with this guy is that he is much more situational than he seems. Only 1/3 of the deck is instants/sorceries, so he will whiff most of the time. Even when he does trigger, you might not want to play the copy (due to mana limitations, bad timing, you’d rather play something else from your hand, etc.) It’s just not worth a card slot for something so low-impact.

  • Elsha of the Infinite . Good if built around as a commander, in any other deck Elsha is just glorified card draw. She’s situational similar to Kefnet. For 5 mana you could play Rush of Knowledge which is copiable, easier to cast, and will give you access to more cards than Elsha would.

  • Jaya Ballard . Triple red in the mana cost can be tricky to pull off in 3 colors. And for what? A worse Gilded Lotus that will likely get killed before you can use it a second time? Jaya requires too much building-around to shine.

  • Counterspell . Keeping two blue mana open when you’re in 3 colors can be rough. You might end up slowing yourself down. Swan Song might be a better choice.

  • Winds of Abandon . You don’t need this when you already have mass burn spells to wipe out creatures. Besides, if an opponent is running a token deck you’d actually be helping them out with this.

  • Swords to Plowshares . You have plenty of ways to burn creatures. Why waste a card slot on single-target creature removal?

  • Echo of Eons . Helps opponents.

  • Scour All Possibilities . Requires tons of mana just to draw a few cards.

  • Karma . Great if you’re consistently finding Urborg. Otherwise this card spooks a couple opponents at best and does nothing at worst.

  • Enlightened Tutor . While this is a strong card, copying it does nothing for you. These kinds of tutors also put you at negative card advantage. I think there are better/more thematically fitting things you could use instead.

  • Time Wipe . You have plenty of mass burn. You don’t need this.

BS-T - you know I had most of those cards on my list and cut them before my last refinement. I don't know why I didn't put Circle of Protection: Red or Story Circle in there!

ScionsStillLive - much appreciated

Deck list is here: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/burn-everyone-bwr-pillow-fort-bleed/

I've been play testing it for a week. In the description I have some notes and half the cards I've been considering.

griffstick - I was afraid I would kill Platinum Emperion if using Death Pits of Rath or that it would prevent me from using Necropotence

StopShot - Karma and Blanket of Night was my combo but I dropped it because I was trying to simplify the deck. I might put it back in. Actually I think I should.

If you're running enough tutors run Karma + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . It's like Manabarbs on crack. Definitely use The Wanderer to reduce the massive amounts of damage dealt to you. Also use Exquisite Blood and Sun Droplet to regain a lot of the life you'll be losing. Thieving Amalgam also works as an amazing damage sponge with it's plentiful chump blockers and life gain potential.
