Damnation & Graveborn Muse need to crawl out of your maybeboard & into your deck. In my experience, Graveborn Muse is stellar in any zombie deck. If the life loss gets too scary, sac her to Grimgrin.

As for Liliana's Reaver, I personally like him. A 4/3 deathtouch for 4CC is nothing to sniff at & if you can sneak him in for damage you get a bonus zombie that Grimgrin can eat for lunch.

You have enough removal in the deck so I think you can replace Shriekmaw for something else. I'd suggest Filth.

Replace Commander's Sphere with Expedition Map. You'd want a way for your Cabal Coffers or Urborg to come out asap.

You have enough tutors so you can take out Diabolic Tutor.

Adding in Reassembling Skeleton and Gravecrawler would be good for reanimation. Especially Gravecrawler since you have a little zombie theme going on and with the plethora of black mana you have, you can keep sacrificing it while Blood Artist and another zombie is on the field.

Triskelion cuz you need at least one instant win-con. Up to you on this one.

Mono black decks need a Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Exsanguinate.

Massacre Wurm is just hella good.

Nim Deathmantle to abuse your ETB creatures. Goes infinite with Ashnod's Altar or another sac engine + an ETB creature. Another possible instant win-con that needs at least 3 cards.

Skullclamp for more draw.

You'll also need Entomb, Corpse Connoisseur and/or Buried Alive to dump creatures you'd want to reanimate. Coffin Queen or Phyrexian Delver for added reanimators.

Spine of Ish Sah since black has no way of destroying enchantments or artifacts.

Add in Vesuva to copy your Cabal Coffers to get even more mana.

So take out:

I can't help but feel that the deck needs a little more focus. I see this in all of your deckbuilding, though.For example, I'm not exactly sure what the Lich Lord of Unx is doing in there. It mills, and causes loss of life. The goal of the deck is supposed to be to make a difficult amount of zombies and discard out their options, right?

Cards I like in this deck:

Cards I'd like to see in the deck:

Cards I don't like much in the deck:

Overall I like where the deck is going. I feel like unless you get more cards like Waste Not to benefit when the opponent discards, you should focus more on emptying their hand and punishing what little they have left.

Cards that I like in a discard deck that you don't have are The Rack, Liliana's Caress, Sangromancer, Terminate, Liliana's Reaver, and Waste Not. Terminate directly replaces Doom Blade, Sangromancer helps a lot with Underworld Connections, Liliana's Caress and The Rack help to bring in the damage, Waste Not can be really useful in getting ahead of your opponent as it provides a lot of value, and Liliana's Reaver can help with discard, as well as adds tokens, or simply kills any creatures that get to the board. I might suggest lowering Slaughter Games to 1-2 mainboard, because although it gets rid of cards, you need to know what cards to get rid of. it works much much better as a sideboard card for game 2. you could cut 1 or 2 Young Pyromancer in favor of some of the above mentioned cards. Also, Dragonskull Summit is a cheap(ish) way to improve your mana-base.

Liliana's Reaver It's better then master of the feast

DarkHero on Standard Old school weenie beatdown.

I came here from your forum post:

It doesn't look bad, If your running any mono color right now, you need Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx hands down. Absolute must add. Bloodsoaked Champion is the new awesome 1 drop black, so good add there. Master of the Feast is a good 3 drop, as long as you can win before the draw gets out out of control. You could consider Fate Unraveler to hinder that draw and turn it into a win con. Gray Merchant of Asphodel was a standard juggernaut for a long time in mono black, and still should be. Paragon of Open Graves might be of interest to you, especially to make the Champion even better late game. Stab Wound is really more of a casual thing, especially with Banishing Light flying around. and Leeching Sliver has no place here. Drown in Sorrow was big along with Bile Blight for a long time, and can be your sudo-board wipe in a pinch. Murderous Cut is a thing, along with Hero's Downfall and even good old Doom Blade be it main or sideboard. Both Liliana of the Dark Realms and Liliana Vess are standard legal and each can deserve a spot. There is always Despise and Duress and again standard legal Thoughtseize if your looking to get into that bag of worms. Erebos, God of the Dead finds a home in mono black as well, and completely kills any lifegain that might hamper your aggro attempts. Liliana's Reaver is actually a beast, especially after the departure of Desecration Demon. If you want to help with the life loss from sign in blood, Whip of Erebos might help you gain that life back. I'm sure I could go on but this should at least get you started. Mono Black has been and still should be very very good in the current meta. Price
