If you're looking for Stax effects, Night of Souls' Betrayal works well.

It's a bit of expensive for the impact, but it's possibly playable? I still think you should play Aven Riftwatcher. As a control player, I advise you to remember that life total generally doesn't matter to most players, including when you gain life. It's pretty easy for a control or combo deck to disassemble you right now. I've recently been sideboarding Leyline of Punishment against soul sisters. Not only that, but even Night of Souls' Betrayal eliminates almost all of your enablers. Storm is likely to outpace this, and that's the most likely high tier deck you're likely to see, as it's the cheapest.

PlatinumWare I dont see where me having and outlet would work better. The only creature I actually want to die is fleshbag which I can make kill itself.

TypicalTimmy agreed, my opponent getting to keep the fleshbag would end the combo and that would get tricky if I cant draw more fleshbag or a removal. But Night of Souls' Betrayal also kills the bloodartist effect which just makes the combo end true infinite and I get DQ. Since no one is dying and the combo cant stop. Maybe i can sideboard some extra target removal if it becomes a problem. I coul try Yahenni's Expertise if im careful.

Is there any enchant that gives -1 to just my opponents creatures? Probably to much mana to work....

Just hoping i can keep up pressure enough and fast enough it "shouldnt" be necessary. A lot more play testing is needed.

@lagotripha: Hey, thanks, I'll be sure to check out that list! I'm purposefully avoiding Night of Souls' Betrayal, though, because I can't play worms with that around (and they're kind of my only real wincon).

Storage Matrix seems really fun! I'll try to make room for it, since this deck doesn't have to worry about untapping only lands.

Languish is nice, but I'm not even running four mutilates yet, so I probably don't need eight haha. Though maybe I could try to go up to four, it's a great card.

Spiteful Visions and Triskaidekaphobia seem a bit risky, though, since I'm already drawing cards and causing loss of life to myself, so I feel like they could backfire more often than not.

Thanks for the comment!

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of modern-tested mono black tools. Night of Souls' Betrayal is cheap now, but a powerhouse in multiplayer, and Storage Matrix is a simlar decent disruption tool. Languish lets you play 8 mutilates. Spiteful Visions helps stop people comboing out and keep answers in hand. Triskaidekaphobia can be fun with multiple people messing with life totals.

Thanks Cluracin. Sylvan Safekeeper is sitting here and waiting for action. Tested that longer ago and it’s a good card in this deck. It just had some weakness for things like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Night of Souls' Betrayal or Goblin Sharpshooter. I endet up cutting it for a Diplomatic Immunity. I would definitely re-add Sylvan Safekeeper as soon as I find a card to cut. For now there is just no card I can think of cutting. Maybe if some time passes and my meta does change.

And the deck is not that much depending on Muldrotha as you might think. She makes the deck much better for sure, but you can win games without having your commander ever cast. It is also not that uncommon to have more protection than needed, ending up with Curator's Ward on a Grave Pact.

A buddy of mine pulled a Leonin Warleader from a 2019 booster and showed it to me. It makes me think a G/W version of this deck would be feasible - maybe even more so than what I've come up with so far, but I have to admit I am very much attached to the idea of combining Hungry Lynx with Crypt Rats, which is also why I haven't made room for Night of Souls' Betrayal. I appreciate the suggestion, though, and have added it to the maybe list for consideration :-)
