Nirkana Revenant Discussion

Archon of Valor's Reach (That are high priority)
Everything is also listed in my binder. Thank you!

My pile of 'kill spells' ends up all blurring together as I sort through them. I like Victim of Night though.
Maybe Battlebond will bring Nirkana Revenant down some, and I can snag one, she's quite nice.
This is my 9th (10th? heck...) Commander deck, and the good mana rocks are getting slim. I like Gilded Lotus for multi-colored decks, which is why there isn't one here.
Thanks for the comment and suggestions.

Haha, I actually meant to mention Oloro to you as he seemed like something I thought you would like, I just forgot to. This will be a super slow, grindy deck. Many people will not enjoy playing against it. I'd love it, but it will be difficult to make friends as a newer player. :p
Cards like Caress and Megrim really require you to have ways to refill your opponents hand. Cards like, but not limited to Font of Mythos and Dictate of Kruphix will be your friend here. Also, look for as many recurring discard effects as you can. Look for creatures, enchantments, artifacts, and planeswalkers if at all possible. I recommend some of these:
Ramp is also important look for mana rocks such as Mana Vault or Thran Dynamo. Ramp on creatures can also be awesome. Talking about Nirkana Revenant and Crypt Ghast. Both of which combo exceedingly well with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

You may consider Victim of Night over Smother, it felt more relevant throughout the life of the game. Also, some additional draw spells are never bad personally I'd look for things like Phyrexian Arena. You may also consider Nirkana Revenant for some additional ramp on a body. I think Gilded Lotus fits here nicely as well, perhaps over Star Compass? I like the deck though, seems mean for Duel Commander. :p
With a few more permanents that cause discard over sorceries, you are well on your way to being able to utilize Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as well.

I gotta say, this set looks like a blast and the reprints are on point. Doubling Season, Greater Good, Seedborn Muse, Vigor, Beast Within, Veteran Explorer, Skyshroud Claim, War's Toll, Magmatic Force, Nirkana Revenant, Diabolic Intent, Mystic Confluence, Sower of Temptation, Land Tax, Mycosynth Lattice, and Mind's Eye are all commander staples in need of reprints. Plus we even got some other great commander goodies with these awesome partner legends and Arena Rector.
And we were blessed with this amazing card/artwork:
This set is a solid 'A' in my book, but then again, multi-player formats are my jam so I may be biased.

It looks pretty good. Only thing I would say is with the high average CMC you may want even more ramp. Liliana of the Dark Realms, Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, and Crypt Ghast are all good.

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
