gradstudent: Oh, he's 100% going in here :D he's perfect for the deck.

sam171z: Thank you, both for your kind words and your incredibly helpful comments! In order:

I tested Black Market and had mixed feelings, I just don't want to spend 5 mana for a mana source that will only pay off the next turn, despite the high ceiling.

Diabolic Intent is in here already, but it's definitely awesome ;)

Puppeteer Clique is a very neat idea here, I'm honestly irritated I didn't think of it XD

Night Incarnate is intriguing, I'll consider it. I'd almost rather run something like Yahenni's Expertise , though?

Lashwrithe was awesome in this deck's predecessor (a Yahenni list) but I think I'll pass on it here (I have more efficient ways to win than Voltron IMO).

Priest of Forgotten Gods is awesome, but I feel like our Commander generally does the trick better. I'll contemplate :)

I don't think that Karn, Silver Golem fits here necessarily... but what DOES work amazingly (and I can't believe I've never thought of) is Karn, the Great Creator ! That's getting IMMEDIATELY slammed in here :D

Hey love the deck its got my vote. what is your take on Black Market , Diabolic Intent which could work better then Vampiric Tutor , Puppeteer Clique which with Mikaeus, its a repeatable primordail, Night Incarnate , even Lashwrithe can come as an unexpected beatdown, and Priest of Forgotten Gods . Will some of these Help, and when you get a chance, can you check out my deck, there are on your wall.

Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Grim Haruspex , etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:

Other cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting (no order):

Dark Prophecy could be something to consider for opponents who have a lot of removal/board wipes... I think Profane Command with Liliana of the Dark Realms would be great for putting out swamps to consistently get creatures/devotion enablers in play... and then wi5th the "choose 2" from command you can get Gray Merchant of Asphodel from the yard as well as just drain life from the opponent.... Lashwrithe might be great to slap onto Vampire Nighthawk as well.

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of brew cards for mono black in modern.

For lifelink vamps, Indulgent Aristocrat , Gifted Aetherborn , Vampire Nighthawk , Call the Bloodline and Vampire Cutthroat should make up the backbone of your deck.

Powerful enablers for them are cards like Blade of the Bloodchief Lashwrithe or Vampire Nocturnus / Drana, Liberator of Malakir which let you 'outsize' the majority of modern midrange. Yes, mono black can reliably eat goyfs.

Finally, you want disruption. Jam a ton of Duress variants, its what mono black does best, and stripping their removal options and card draw makes that 10/10 lifelink token you made by discarding a land and equipping lashwrithe very effective. Past that, plan your sideboard- ratchet bomb is basically mandatory as your only enchantment removal, but the rest is more standard modern fare.

KaiyanK Hi, I've played mono-black a whole bunch. Zombies is an interesting tribe with some cool options.

Right now you are setup as a slow aggro deck- the traditional fix to that is to become a fast aggro deck. You can pack a decent disruption package and zombie making enchantments to become more midrange so long as you pack card advantage tools. The important part is looking over your options and picking cards that work well together. I have a big list of mono black stuff I've made work in modern. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox

Key options are;

Stitcher's Supplier +Graveyard shenanigans ( Haunted Dead etc)

Zombie Infestation +discard/graveyard shenanigans

Geralf's Messenger / Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Gurmag Angler best zombie in the format

Korlash, Heir to Blackblade powerful ramp w/ Lashwrithe

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed easy combo fuel, if you can reach six mana

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge & Bridge from Below powerful shenanigans.

Languish Budget damnation dodged by big creatures.

I'm testing a combo list Familiar Ground at the moment- its a hybrid umbral mantle izzet guildmage combo deck making use of Biomancer's Familiar as extra Training Grounds .

Get rid of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth because you have no cards outside of Lashwrithe that utilize the number of swamps you have.

Also, add Kokusho, the Evening Star in Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth 's place. Possible Creatures (That are also cheap) to add:

Sidisi, Undead Vizier - self sac to tutor

Soulstinger - Self-sac fodder, puts -1/-1 counters on opponent/target creatures

Skinrender - Self-sac fodder, also puts -1/-1 counters on opponent/target creatures

Puppeteer Clique - Two free reanimation

Phyrexian Ghoul - Self-sac to pump up

Merciless Executioner - Forced board sac, your own creatures return sue to Mikeaus

Leaden Myr - 2-drop black mana dork

Grim Haruspex - Although it's a human, it provides card draw

Fallen Angel - Sac-fodder to pump out, also has flying

Falkenrath Noble - Nice passive ability with flying, also provides 1 life anytime a creature dies, including itself

I had built his the same way. For q different reason though. I suggest Nightmare Lash and Lashwrithe . Make the creatures power real big before you sac them off.
