Magus of the Coffers Discussion

Hey I use to run black and white EDH and now I use Grixis colors Rose of Regeneration. But a couple things that a noticed and recommend. You use swords of plowshares I would replace it with Malicious Affliction because you deck is predominately black and it's ability to remove two creatures is amazing. I would remove Sorin, Grim Nemesis because you can only have one sorin on the field as a time so 4 seems overkill and he is probably the worst of the 4 because no one would ever let his emblem drop in edh. Your mana curve isn't bad but Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers are miracle workers. But overall your deck looks pretty good check out some of my decks such as the one mentioned above and give them a +1

Panas on Help generating infinite colored/red mana ...

I know of one in black mana, as I run it in my mono black.

Magus of the Coffers + Sword of the Paruns + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + lands (5+) = Infinite black mana. I guess... filter with gemstone array here as well? :p

But is it really worth going through so many loops to cast Alesha a million times to kill people? If you are making infinite mana, why not just Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless or even Fireball the whole table?

I'd fix your lands to like... 35? Magus of the Coffers, Whip of Erebos will give Shauka lifelink to give you back your lost life. I would suggest Assault Suit as well, but it is painfully bad for Shauka as she can be tapped down so no one can attack, unless you like politics. Damnation, In Garruk's Wake, Languish, Yahenni's Expertise, Basic target removal would be good as well (i.e. Murder, Doom Blade), there is a sword, Worldbreaker that destroys all other creatures, I would also say run some equipment like the full dual-swords if you can afford them, like Sword of Fire and Ice, Ashnod's Altar is good for getting rid of your own creatures when your ready to swing in as well.

You're playing a lot of quite high cmc cards. I would add some more mana rocks, I'd also add Paradox Engine. With Erratic Portal + Magus of the Coffers + Sol Ring you can bounce, recast, untap, repeat ad infinitum.

You're a little light on draw power. Read the Bones or Bitter Revelation could be worth including.

At present i don't see too many ways of generating infinite mana. I see the Necrotic Ooze/Palladium Myr/Pili-Pala one but that's it

If you add Decaying Soil, it goes infinite with Priest of Gix+ Ashnod's Altar

When I think of generals for monoblack combo decks Mikaeus, the Unhallowed comes to mind. (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed+Triskelion deals infinite damag by removing its last counter to deal 1 damage to itself which brings it back with more counters). Also mikaeus+ any creature with persist like Puppeteer Clique+ any free sac outlet like Altar of Dementia gives infinite triggers as the two counters cancel eachother out. Workhorse also provides infinite mana with mikeus

Blasting Station is another free sac outlet in such a combo as each time the loop is performed the creature enters from the graveyard untapping the station.

Provided you have 7 swamps in play Staff of Domination gives infinite mana and draws your entire deck with the help of the Magus of the Coffers you already have

considering you only have 3 swamps in your deck, Magus of the Coffers isnt really your best bet. perhaps if you include Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, it could potentially be worth it. but then again, you'd need a way to dig out a specific non-basic and dig out a specific creature, probably protect him for a turn, unless haste, then have something to use all that black mana for. my vote is to cut.

lol @ rich, competitive snobs. So, I noticed Uborg, and have never used it, but I tend to see it paired with Cabal Coffers which would obviously be amazing in your deck. Magus of the Coffers, Crypt Ghast, or even Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would also provide redundancy or budget alternatives. But, I've never played monoBlack and maybe you don't need any extra mana. If you ever want to pull more out of your graveyard, I think my Graveyard Factory runs at least 18 reanimators. I'm absolutely in love with Living Death.

I love black market but the hate is really hard to handle,causing me often to much aggro in multiplayer rounds.

I played some more round and after plaing against an other mono-black with a harder ramp i decided to rework the mana ramp may with Magus of the Coffers and Crypt Ghast
