@griffstick: While I was working on my Kruphix deck, I added 4 & cut 1:

Any thoughts? Didn't think my meter would decrease in this case... But why nobody cares I dunno...

I really like Maralen of the Mornsong in this shell over Child of Night. Use her and nixilis to lock your opponents out of the game or kill themselves. Maybe even running Quicksilver Amulet.

Faraven on Drawing, without saying draw

I'm creating a couple of Maralen of the Mornsong decks, the biggest problem is not being able to draw. The means no Sign in Blood Phyrexian Arena or other card drawing effects.

My question is what cards are out there in mono black that allows me to put cards in my hand, without stating draw.

-> I know about ad naseum, and necropotence

I feel like Bringer of the Black Dawn is just an over costed Maralen of the Mornsong, but I understand why you left it out.

Tbh in terms of commander decks, they just don't seem that interesting for helms of the decks other than the fact that they have alternative costs similar to Derevi, Empyrial Tactician. They'd be really underwhelming if you couldn't have multiples tbh.

LordBlackblade on Mono-B WTF?!

It's not a bad way to go, kind of why I've always been skittish about running Maralen of the Mornsong. I've been experimenting with Demonlord Belzenlok in my mono-black goodstuff deck. He's got a decent body and the card draw is usually pretty good. In my deck he usually draws around three cards.

I'd have to recommend the classic approach for Mono-Black: Big Mana. Just use Maralen of the Mornsong to fetch your mana doublers (Crypt Ghast et al.) and eventually fire off a super charged Torment of Hailfire or for more of a slow death Sadistic Sacrament kicked to gut an opponent's deck.

Another thought, perhaps try a less enabling commander if you want to tone things down. Maralen can be fun as a Mono-Black commander, but unless you're super aggressive with locking others out with her, the combo player will use her more effectively than you will, unfortunately.

BS-T on Mono-B WTF?!

I've recently assembled a Maralen of the Mornsong deck - not a mad 90-Swamp Ad Naus thing but definitely stacked with redundant lock out pieces and general unpleasantness.

It's a deck I want to keep around and keep the list for as all my other decks are way more casual and fun so it's a bit different.

What I want some help with though is ideas on what to 'tone down' the deck to for when I have a change of heart. I've been intrigued recently hearing about an unexpected Zur Bestow deck and a Ydris Landfall approach so I want to do something unexpected that isn't Maralen's usual fare. (These are from jeez, someone, on a podcast that I can't recall. Sorry!)

I'll still include stuff like Ob Nixilis, Unshackled because 'duh', but I won't be riding my Teferi's Puzzle Box / Anvil of Bogardan to victory with this.

The only other Mono-B deck I've ever had was the Ob Nix precon so it's not totally familiar ground - What kind of approach do you think would be interesting for Mono-B with Maralen up top?
