Mutilate Discussion

Gorky on Skittles the Aids Dragon

I'd recommend running atleast one ore two more boardwipes, while Crux of Fate is great with Skithiryx stuff like Damnation , Mutilate , Black Sun's Zenith and Decree of Pain should be considered aswell. :D

Expedition Map can help you find Urborg or Cabal Coffers if you are missing one of the two.

If you are looking for more consistency Beseech the Queen is a nice 3 Mana tutor and Diabolic Tutor get's the job done aswell.

Hope any of this helps you :D

You seem to be rather light on card draw. A couple card's I'd recommend are Geth's Grimoire and Syphon Mind which would stay on theme.

Other general card I think worth considering would be:

Also I'd say to try and squeeze in a few board wipes like Life's Finale , Mutilate , Crux of Fate or even Crypt Rats

Dark Impostor is another removal spell on a stick that exiles the creature it targeted as well as gains its activated abilites, all for low CMC and low $. Same goes for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief but she powers herself up for a quicker kill. Guul Draz Assassin and Big Game Hunter also fit into this category.

For single target kill spells: Sever the Bloodline is a bit overcosted for most targets but is a pretty good token killer, Price of Fame is cheap enough if targeting opposing commanders and lets you dig through your library looking for answers. Tragic Slip is low CMC and can be a way around indestructible.

For mass removal, Mutilate and Black Sun's Zenith are inexpensive options. Nevinyrral's Disk can wipe the board of both artifacts and enchantments which black flat out has no real way to directly deal with.

But one of black's specialties is getting opponents to sac their owns permanents, especially creatures: Gatekeeper of Malakir , Chainer's Edict , Geth's Verdict , Plaguecrafter , Slum Reaper , Fleshbag Marauder , Diabolic Edict

For some additional artifact ramp: Charcoal Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Hedron Archive Unstable Obelisk with the Obelisk doubling as 'hit anything' removal and the Stone and Archive being some card draw as well.

...which leads into more card draw: Phyrexian Arena for steady card draw, Necrologia for that rush of cards.

For mono black Cabal Stronghold is a cheap option to gain extra mana late game.

I didn't price check everything listed above but nothing there should be too outrageously priced.

I would run it mono black and swap Path of Exile for Dismember . But it looks like you are keeping white for sideboard stuff.

Also you are missing the devotion land! Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

here are some other cards I liked running in my black devotion deck:

Cabal Coffers Geralf's Messenger Pack Rat Victim of Night Whip of Erebos Mutilate Toxic Deluge

Definitely worth adding Necropolis Regent and Nirkana Revenant they both just add power to the deck Cabal Coffers is much more durable than magus of the coffers but it’s not an easy thing to get a hold of so definitely worth an add another not so easy thing is Cavern of Souls it just stops blue decks from countering your vampires, things I’d remove for them gifted atherborn it’s not that great in honesty and I’d remove Skeletal Vampire on the basis that it’s a lot of mana when you could have a bigger powerhouse in play like either of those two. Reanimating Wise you could add Patriarch's Bidding I always recommend it for tribal decks and I would still leave Mutilate in as it’s still powerful in a mono black deck Sudden Spoiling can help you get around nasty abilities or big monsters, if equipment is the way you want to go then I’d add Lashwrithe

A copy or two of Mutilate could be good in this deck, since it's pretty easy to set it to X=3 and do a one-sided board wipe.

Hey, looks good, nice Coffers :) Consider reducing the avg. CMC? It's currently 4.2 that's very high without having much early game ramp.

cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rescue from the Underworld
  • Wretched Confluence
  • Beacon of Unrest
  • Diabolic Tutor
  • In Garruk's Wake
  • Oblivion Strike
  • Rise of the Dark Realms
  • Twilight's Call
  • Helm of the Host
  • Whisper, Blood Liturgist
  • Tetzimoc, Primal Death
  • Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
  • Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis
  • Ihsan's Shade
  • Hythonia the Cruel
  • Demonlord Belzenlok

You should check out the new just released Masters set, Ultimate Masters. The set has a lot of great reprinted black cards for Commander.

Good luck with your deck.

hkhssweiss much appreciated! :)

Drana was at one point at the helm of this deck too, but I switched to Erebos for the card advantage and because he doesn't die as much to my own spells.

Geth was also a former general for the deck, and it was fun having him run things, but in the end I was looking for something of a Pox deck for mono black. Not quite stax, but just enough pain to give people a headache.

Mhm. Contamination /IS/ that good. The deck in its current version just can't support it. I used to run it with a full package: Bloodghast, Reassembling Skeleton, Bitterblossom and the like along with Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact and sacrifice effects. But the deck started taking a different direction, so I had to remove them, and so Contamination had to go too.

I actually swapped Mind Stone and Thought Vessel for the 'colored' rocks that I mentioned earlier. So far it's been good.

As for Mindblade Render (and Dark Confidant) I find them more suitable for aggro decks. That's where I usually put them in. But I might make room for Twilight Prophet depending on how fast I can get to ten permanents. Card advantage, life gain, /and/ I get to bleed my opponents? Yes, please.

Mutilate and Ashes to Ashes also used to be in the deck, but the many non-basics that I run kept making the former ineffective and the latter was axed because I was cutting down on sorcery speed removal.

What's your experience with Torment of Hailfire? That card has always been on my radar, but I've never run it nor seen it in action. I don't like it when they get to choose their punishment. :))
