Hey Profet93, great suggestions! I’ve been debating whether to include the rings combo and Yawg’s Will for a while. I had forgotten Helm of Obedience, thanks! The Helm plus Voids are a 2-piece kill combo that seem more likely to achieve than relying on Magus of the Coffers. While including the Magus for the chance of generating infinite mana is nice, if the combo is just not competitive then it’s not worth including. By the way, I am trying to approve your suggestions, but the site seems to be glitching.

SynergyBuild, thanks for putting that list together, awesome!!! I am pulling from it and refining my list. This seems like a promising archetype. Let me know how your testing goes!

Oh for sure run Necro over Bob, and Visitor as well, but more pieces are good, Mindblade Render is great too, however the weird big mana thing is my largest issue with the deck.

Umbral Mantle, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, Torment of Hailfire, Exsanguinate, Bubbling Muck, etc. All are destroyed by cheap removal and interaction. A ton of other random cards in the deck feel weak or just low value, and I believe could be swapped for nearly directly better cards, and the deck could have almost strictly better wincons.

Yes I do like the amazing Tinybones backup plan, but mana dumping isn't necessary, and could just work given the stacy peices and the time they give without all the fluff that makes mulligans and opening hands much worse.

I think this list shows a lot of potential, but isn't tuned for the current metagame, if that makes sense. I'll write up a list of changes and maybe will post it later on!

I usually try to use cheaper cards to keep it around 200-300. So I don't usually have those higher priced card in mine. No shame in using them, but thats just me. Looking at the deck more, you got a lot of the core Wincons which is nice to see.

There is one that I'm not seeing, which imo is one of the better for the deck, which is Thrilling Encore. Usually its seen as a worse Rise of the Dark Realms, but in this case it works really well because you can recur it twice. Plus you can get a lot of value versus green decks with it + Force of Despair.

Another two cards I'd recommend are Magus of the Coffers & Caged Sun mainly because we are playing black. Which admittedly the ramp for black is kinda meh, but Mana Doubling is where it is at. You could also do Liliana of the Dark Realms, but its kind of overkill.

I also recently found this commander, but I love him. He's really fun to build and isn't like any other mono black commander I've ever played.

The Price range between Cabal Coffers and Cabal Stronghold is huge considering the one mana ability cost diference :S...Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers are good options aswell

You are also gonna want Crypt Ghast. You may also want to consider Nirkana Revenant and/or Magus of the Coffers

You can just take out two Swamps for the Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Cabal Coffers, or if you're really worried about having enough basic Swamps and you're not concerned about your opponents' graveyards, you can swap out the Bojuka Bog. But 36 lands (incl. Geier Reach Sanitarium) seems about right for what I'm running.

I'm torn on Liliana of the Dark Realms - I had her in, but took her out because she doesn't discard. In general I'd be looking to make a cut in the Utility category for her. You could probably cut Gray Merchant of Asphodel, since it's similarly expensive. It's just in there now for a bit of reach and lifegain to offset all the draw triggers, and because I already had him.

I'm not running Doubling Cube either, but you could take out Umbral Mantle - which I have in because it goes infinite with Magus of the Coffers, but Doubling Cube could be a more consistent way to get a lot of mana without running a do-nothing card in Umbral. Magus is still worth running on its own without Umbral, IMO.

Sword of Feast and Famine can go in for any of the "My Turn Discard" slots, since that's what it is. The weakest ones are probably Hypnotic Specter and Okiba-Gang Shinobi, but since you need creatures to wear the Sword, you might want to cut something like Raven's Crime instead.

Hope that helps! It's been a blast to playtest so far!

TypicalTimmy thanks! I missed that Lili, going to make room for her now. I'm trying a build that's fairly low to the ground aside from an infinite mana combo in Magus of the Coffers + Umbral Mantle, trying to win with the discard damage and just 1-2 activations of Tinybones. So hopefully I won't need Doubling Cube. But I can always steal it from my Kozilek deck if I need it :)

Also going to fit in Command the Dreadhorde...

I also made a list around General Kudro of Drannith myself. Hes the best toolbox human commander we could ask for. I would suggest Magus of the Coffers, Thalia's Lieutenant, Xathrid Necromancer. If your having problems with Mana, Knight of the White Orchid and Verge Rangers. Maybe a Species Specialist and Grim Haruspex for card draw, but the list looks quite good as is enjoy!!
