Nirkana Revenant Discussion
1 day ago
Yes I've built it several times. It's fun. But you need lots of mana for it to be fun. It's a tier 3 CMDR at best. You'll need lots of good ramp. Like mana doublers. Caged Sun, and Extraplanar Lens. You need to focus on what black does best when considering mana ramp. Cabal Coffers, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, and Crypt Ghast. utilize the fact that you'll be mono black so cards like. Nightmare Lash, Lashwrithe, and Strata Scythe. You need big finishers that use big mana. Exsanguinate, and Torment of Hailfire. You'll want to try to have a few ways to stay in control early. Royal Assassin creatures, and some deathtouch creatures. You'll be killing selected creatures so Mimic Vat it good here. You want to make your CMDR more effective, so you'll want Illusionist's Bracers, and Rings of Brighthearth to copy Kalitas's effect throw in Basalt Monolith to make infinite colorless mana when paired up with the Rings of Brighthearth. You'll want to have Grave Betrayal as well this pairs up well with Kalitas. You are gonna need Command Beacon because if and when Kalitas dies. It will be hard recasting her after she dies 1 or 2 times. And you can do a reanimation theme as well where you can pick from graves at will with cards like Animate Dead, Rise from the Grave, Rise of the Dark Realms, and Fated Return. You'll need your basic edh packages. The Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Burnished Hart, Gilded Lotus ramp package. About 4 board wipes. Decree of Pain, Archfiend of Depravity, Black Sun's Zenith, Mutilate. You'll need some other targeted removal and control. Withering Boon to stop etb effects that might threaten you, Imp's Mischief to redirect targeted spells. Sadistic Sacrament for the combo decks. And Praetor's Grasp for the same, or use it to grab a mana rock. Then throw in some strong combos that mono black does well. Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension or Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond. Along with a few other good ones. And some one shot heavy hitters. Like Sorin Markov, Tree of Perdition, and Blood Tribute. Follow the guidelines and you'll have a solid deck.

Hey! Your deck seems pretty cool. +1 from me! Some Notes...
If you want to win through voltran, then you might want to add Shizo, Death's Storehouse
Nirkana Revenant functions similarly to caged sun/gauntlet of power. I would remove the gauntlet for nirkana. 1 more mana but doesn't help others (even more so with urborg)
Some extra lands don't hurt, maybe get up to 36, although land count is a personal preference.
I see you have whip of erebos and imp's mischief in the maybeboard? You MUST add the imp's mischief, extreme utility for a cheap price, and no1 expects it in black. Whip of erebos is cool recursion synergy with your commander, helps the life loss of the deck/hate you'll be getting. Speaking of hate, you should add Hatred. It would work very well with whip, can be political and honestly just really funny. Give xiahou dun haste with whip, pay 18 life to hatred, attack and gain 21 and kill someone.
Vesuva - Similar to thespian's stage, another coffers
Mirage Mirror - See above but with way more utility
Expedition Map - To help "ramp" and find key utility lands. You also have a low land count so it helps.
I don't see for you to get around black's weakness like artifacts and enchantments. Thus, you might want to consider Nevinyrral's Disk, Oblivion Stone, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated, Spine of Ish Sah, Scour from Existence, etc....
Mastermind's Acquisition > Diabolic Tutor.
There's a couple other suggestions but I don't know your budget/playstyle.
If you want any other recommendations to add, cards to cut or whatever, let me know! Feel free to check out my deck The Descent Into Darkness for more ideas

Ashnod's Altar and Queen gives you infinite ETB triggers, that and Altar of the Brood is an easy wincon. If manaramp is the goal cards like Mirari's Wake Caged Sun and Nirkana Revenant are all good. Spells with X in the cost are also important.

You're looking for big black mana? Then look no further, suggestions have arrived!
Thespian's Stage - copy coffers or utility land
Nirkana Revenant - Big Black Mana
Reassembling Skeleton - Same as above (excluding flying)
Torment of Hailfire - Amazing X spell
Disciple of Bolas - Card draw and life gain (to mitigate life loss that's common with black). also works as a one time use sac outlet
Ophiomancer - token producers are key for sidisi, also helps against stompy
Ghoulcaller Gisa - Sac outlet, token generator, seems solid
Kokusho, the Evening Star - Sac target, defense against flying, lifegain
Beseech the Queen - You are mono black so TUTORS ARE A MUST!!!!
Yawgmoth's Will - Ultimate recursion
Victimize - Synergy with token generators
Cards for fun...for you and the whole fami....JUST FUN FOR YOU!
Worst Fears - One time use, extreme potential
Mindslaver - Similar to above
Emrakul, the Promised End - My favorite out of the 3!
Oblivion Stone - You seem to have some cards to deal with blacks inability to deal with artifacts and enchantments. In case you feel you need more, you can add this or Nevinyrral's Disk. All the suggestions I have made could go into your 10 card wishboard (playgroup permitting)
Soul Conduit - THINK NECROPOTENCE!!!
Trading Post - Synergize with spine of ish shah, token producer (think contamination or sidisi), sac outlet, and in a pinch can gain life (perhaps from getting attacked too much or necroed yourself too low)
No Mercy - Run it, no exception
Overall the deck seems solid, +1 from me. If you want me to recommend other cards, find cards to remove, or have any questions in general, please let me know. You have a combo in there or 2 so I can suggest actual combos that you might want to consider given that you have a tutor in the commandzone. If you want some other (mostly nonbudget) ideas, feel free to check out my deck The Descent Into Darkness

Thanks!I am definitely getting primal amulet and Nirkana Revenant. I do have a Magus of the Coffers but i'm not completely sold on it. Revel in Riches was already on the deck. I might try Demon of Dark Schemes and Harvester of Souls, though i'll have to cut some other creatures.

Primal Amulet Flip makes your spells cheaper and can copy them as well. Revel in Riches gives you mana when creatures die so you can cast from the graveyard. Nirkana Revenant and Magus of the Coffers could be good to ramp more. Harvester of Souls draws you more cards to keep the cycle going, and Demon of Dark Schemes can reanimate some of the creatures you kill.
