Nirkana Revenant Discussion

Nice deck. I play something similar. Have you considered adding Pulse Tracker , Kalastria Highborn , Anowon, the Ruin Sage,Nirkana Revenant and Malakir Bloodwitch to the list? And if you add Whip of Erebos , Bloodchief Ascension as well as Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond you get multiple mid- to late game finisher as well as a possible infinity-combo

Shouldn't you run Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet? Instead of running Caged Sun perhaps Crypt Ghast, or Nirkana Revenant, the latter being more expensive, and still a vampire. Maybe even a Metallic Mimic to be the cheaper version of Door of Destinies.

My friend, you are not taking full advantage of Drana's activated ability in order to singlehandedly remove players from the game with Commander damage...

You need Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves in order to give her Haste and swing immediately. You also need more ways to produce more black mana - you're missing a lot of the great cards for mana ramp in monoblack. Consider adding Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Cabal Coffers, Caged Sun, Extraplanar Lens, Bubbling Muck, and Lake of the Dead.

This deck is in dire need of card draw and mana ramp, because it only has Staff of Nin in the former category and zero in the latter. In EDH, opponents have twice as much life as a normal game of Magic, which means in order to aggro your opponents down, you will need to keep your hand refreshed, and to be able to play your bigger threats earlier.

The amount of spot removal in this list, especially in weak forms like Shock and Tribal Flames, isn't necessary. Typically when you're facing multiple opponents, targeted removal isn't as useful, and when you do need it, you need to make it unconditional, like Doom Blade and Go for the Throat.

Another category that is missing is wraths. Even when playing aggro, in a multiplayer setting, boardwipes are necessary for value, and to save yourself when you are behind.

With these points in mind, I would try to find ways to incorporate the following list of cards:

Rakdos Signet, Nirkana Revenant, Crypt Ghast, Asylum Visitor, Stromkirk Occultist, Solemn Simulacrum, Sign in Blood, Blasphemous Act, Stensia Banquet, Decree of Pain, Black Sun's Zenith, Sol Ring, Urza's Incubator, Caged Sun, Gilded Lotus, Commander's Sphere, Talisman of Indulgence, Chromatic Lantern, Phyrexian Arena, Temple of the False God, and Cabal Coffers.

I know that's a long list of cards, and that some of them are pretty pricy, but a good standard in EDH is to have around 8-10 mana ramp cards, 8-10 card draw spells, 4-5 spot removal, 4-5 boardwipes, and 5-6 tutors.

I would cut from the list cards that are either weak spot removal, or less effective in a multiplayer setting, or not on-theme (in this case, vampires, counters, and proliferate):

Tormented Soul, Nightbird's Clutches, Tribal Flames, Geth's Verdict, Incinerate, Lightning Bolt, Shock, Sorin's Thirst, Sudden Shock, Tribute to Hunger, Curse of the Pierced Heart.

For more ideas, I highly recommend using the website edhrec.com since it offers a database of popularly-used cards for your commander to get ideas (I can't hyperlink it for some reason). You can also check out my own Olivia Voldaren Vampire EDH deck for other ideas.

Literally any card with persist (Lingering Tormentor, Puppeteer Clique, Rattleblaze Scarecrow, Wingrattle Scarecrow) and a sac outlet goes infinite off of Mikaeus. Other than that: run some of the mana doublers black is known for (Nirkana Revenant, Crypt Ghast, and the general doublers like Extraplanar Lens and Caged Sun. Oh and Bubbling Muck.

Happy deckbuilding!
