Nim Deathmantle Discussion

From my experience, the big thing is trying to balance between Horobi synergies and things that are good on their own. I'd add in Nim Deathmantle as Horobi will die, and it's one of the few ways of easily bringing it back. I'd also add Hex Parasite for planeswalkers and an indestructible Eldrazi as Shane.Allen suggests. I like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for its ability to exile permanents.

I would recommend Kuldotha Forgemaster for tutoring artifacts, Inkmoth Nexus for early game attacks, Bomat Courier for card draw, Combustible Gearhulk for card draw, Darksteel Reactor as a alternate win condition, Extraplanar Lens for ramp, Hangarback Walker for token generation, Jester's Cap for opponent library manipulation, Nim Deathmantle for resurrection, and Ring of Three Wishes for tutoring. This is all a could think of at the moment but I will have more soon! BTW Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is not commander legal.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Sheoldred, Whispering One are the next two big cards I'm getting, as they are great in this deck and are some of the best mono-black EDH cards. Until then, Cauldron of Souls looks good. I do like the look of that Skirsdag High Priest, because free(ish) 5/5 flyers every turn seems good. I had Magus of the Abyss in here, but it was one of the last cuts I made so I could playtest on Untap, on the reasoning that it does kill my own stuff evenly, even if it's still great. Once I add more token producers, it'll probably make it's way back in here. I like infinite combos, but feel Nim Deathmantle isn't great without a Grave Titan. I'll put that in once Gary and Overlord find a way in. I don't like the cockroaches because paying 3 mana a turn for an indestructible yahenni doesn't sound exciting.
Once again, thanks for all the help! But now I need to cut more cards...

Always happy to help RazortoothMtg! I definitely understand having to stick to budget needs. I think some other token generators you could look at are Ogre Slumlord, Abhorrent Overlord, Sifter of Skulls, and the new Sly Requisitioner. Two cards that could be helpful in a wrath-heavy deck are Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cauldron of Souls. I know the former is a bit pricey but he may be a good investment down the road.
I'm not sure how you feel about infinite combos but you can make infinite tokens with Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar. You can add other components to this combo to create infinite damage, draw, etc.
One good card I would always have in mono-black is Gray Merchant of Asphodel. He can be a huge life swing and possibly even a game ender.
Magus of the Abyss could also be quite helpful in this deck. I definitely second that (budget pending), you should add Sheoldred, the Whispering One because she's meant for decks like this. You could look at less efficient but still effective means of pseudo-reanimating in the form of Brood of Cockroaches, Endless Cockroaches, and Oversold Cemetery. Since you aren't going to be re-using too many cards in your graveyard, things like Magus of the Will or Empty the Pits could be useful for big plays.

Honestly, a 10-mana win-con in a mono-color deck isn't that bad. Tainted Remedy would be good if you could force life gain, but without white I can't think of anything. You already have the Monolith, so including that with Rings of Brighthearth and Exsanguinate is an infinite combo too. Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle infinite combo with tons of things. Hope this helps!
