I love the aetherborn! I think as far as black control goes you can't go wrong with Fatal Push and Collective Brutality. Live Fast also suits your theme.

I have an Aetherborn Tribal deck and the deck is slow. Mine focuses more on +1/+1 counters but I have noticed that we need control. 4 Fatal Push costs almost double of what the deck is now but is worth it. A super useful card in any format. Grasp of Darkness is also powerful and can kill gods. Since you are going for the control angle, casing a Torment of Scarabs would give you long game value since it triggers every turn. The longer the game, the more it favors you. Lastly, some card draw like Live Fast would help you out with energy and cards.

My Google-Fu has failed me so I apologize if this question has been asked here before but I've been unable to find any answers. What I'm looking for is matched pairs of art.

Examples include Essence Warden and Soul Warden

The M10 versions of Holy Strength and Unholy Strength

Live Fast and Die Young

Anyone else have any other examples?

I like this deck idea, the one thing I would suggest is adding more card advantage. Make room for 4 copies of Succumb to Temptation between the maindeck and sideboard. Or possibly some combination of Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and Live Fast.

You might also want to go up a couple of the cycling deserts, so there's less chance of you being mana screwed, and you can cycle them away in case of mana flood.

PeeBee definitely agree with the Gifted Aetherborn, I have found cruel reality to win around 30-40% of my games due to the absolutely decimating amount of removal. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a flyer and i find works on curve perfectly, as she can almost always dodge Yahenni's Expertise. Live Fast seems to be the better option as usually im casting at sorcery speed anyway with draw as i almost always save mana for removal. I already run Harsh Scrutiny in my side board now i just forgot to add it into the list. Collective Brutality is a monster in this deck, so that will not change mainly due to the fact it removes instants and sorcery's from hand and at my local game shop many people play blue-white flash and tempo. So getting rid of things that can decimate my turn 4 curve is vital and this card helps the most for it. Thanks heaps for the advice :)

Hey, I like the deck and have been running my own mono black control deck in standard for quite a few months now.

1). I think you should add Gifted Aetherborn, hes such a great card and any deck that can cast him should run him. The curve of Fatal Push -> Gifted Aetherborn -> Liliana, the Last Hope is super strong.

2). Harsh Scrutiny is a card i like to run as an additional 1 drop, its good early game and later game the one mana scry doesnt hurt much.

3). I wouldnt run x2 Cruel Finality, as you only have Collective Brutality to discard it early game, and if you draw the second, you will be waiting a long time to cast it.

4). I love Drana, Liberator of Malakir but I feel you need more creatures in your deck to make her more useful. I would swap her for a more impactful creature/spell.

5). I really wanted to play Demon of Dark Schemes in my deck, however i felt like the ability would never be used, and with me being a control deck, by turn 6/7/8 my opponent shouldnt have many/any creatures on the board so his wipe may hit nothing. However if you want to keep the creature, i would suggest swapping Succumb to Temptation with Live Fast. You downgrade to a sorcery speed draw spell, but do benefit from gaining extra energy meaning the demon should get an activation.

The above is only personal preference but I am happy to give more of my opinion if required.

I love the Monster! A few budget suggestions that I can make are:

Splendid Reclamation- why get your lands back just 1 at a time? Bring them all back at once- lots of triggers on the Retreat and landfall creatures, and lots of sac fodder for the monster.

Drownyard Temple- What's better than a land you can sac every turn? How about 1 that can return to play and be sacked again next turn.

Nissa, Vital Force- She only costs $4, and plays pretty nicely with the Monster. Starting loyalty is 5, so you +1 when she comes out and ultimate her next turn. Now you're drawing cards for lands entering play and the graveyard.

Aside from these cards, I think you need more creatures in the deck. You have so much stuff that is great when the monster is out, but what about when he's not out? You need more win conditions.

You can probably replace the Sylvan Scrying with something like Grapple with the Past. Helps you find a land early, or puts a land in the yard when the monster is there, or returns the monster when he's been killed. Also, combos really well if you do play the Reclamation. I mean, what land are you going to get? If you really want to search for a land, you've got the Fork... and it seems Fork is better for your deck.

I would also try and play some cards that let you draw more cards. Live Fast is an easy one, or you could play Merciless Resolve. With the Monster on the table, it says " pay 3, sac a land, draw 3 cards"- at instant speed. Succumb to Temptation is also another instant speed draw spell.

Lastly, you need some removal. Murder is cheap and get's the job done. Grasp of Darkness is a little more, but it is really good. Ruinous Path is cheap right now, and can get Planeswalkers too.

Anyway, as a fan of the monster, I hope you find success with the deck. I also hope this comments helped.

Aether Hub is for the chase i miss a specific colour and Live Fast was also for leloading it. I will think about trashing the energy theme and take the instant speed and basic lands instead.
