Null Profusion Discussion
1 week ago

yeah I didn't notice this was specifically for EDH. I'll go with Null Profusion as a crappier substitute.

FWIW, here are some other examples where this has already been done:
- Recycle → Null Profusion
- Drop of Honey →Porphyry Nodes
- Roc of Kher Ridges → Phantom Monster and Esper Cormorants
- Thunder Spirit → Sky Spirit
Color-shifted and almost the same abilities:

Of course! Additionally I should point out that because the Mana Sink on Ishkanah is all you should really need, because once you've assembled the infinite mana combo unimpeded, Ishkanah should be the last thing you need to kill the table. Thus things like Exsanguinate and Walking Ballista are relatively unnecessary in comparison to the (repeatable!) mana dump ability on Ishkanah. That should be your priority, and having a Veil of Summer helps you resolve the Big Spider and so will Autumn's Veil if you feel like doubling down on that. Also, something hilarious I find a lot of fun playing around with (especially as a non-blue deck) is Seedtime . The look on my opponent's faces when the Golgari deck starts taking extra turns is absolutely priceless.
As a flavorful bit of extra spice, I'd also try to include Spider Spawning for more spiders and consequently more life loss from Ishkanah, as well as even perhaps Obelisk Spider for it's big butt to block Tymna and it seems to be pretty good considering Devoted Druid happens to be here too. I like Compost a lot, especially with the inclusion of Mesmeric Orb but I'd like to emphasize shuffling stuff back in with Gaea's Blessing here as a nonbo-prevention measure. Something like an Eldrazi Titan might also be beneficial here because of the shuffles-from-anywhere part, but Blessing works really well with Stuff like Entomb and Noxious Revival which are already here. Which is probably good enough.
If you feel inclined to do so, I'd like to remind you of Recycle as well as it's clone Null Profusion if you like playing Hot Jank, and your choice of commander seems to steer my belief in that direction. Seedtime is another one of those cards, which is why I mentioned it.
This is a really cool list! More unique legends need to see play and this is definitely one of them.

+1 my guy. @Your post
Darkblast is probably playable.
Phyrexian Reclamation is a great way to access your graveyard.
I would remove most of your milling artifacts to make room for some of the above, more draw, more removal, and 4-5 board wipes ( Boompile and Oblivion Stone effects are a must in monoblack). You have strong combos with Syr Konrad and I would focus on drawing/ tutoring into those while you control the board a bit more. With more interaction it'll be less of a glass cannon and more fun to play with and against.

So before I get to suggestions, I want to mention that I think your deck is beautiful. I love the idea of getting the whole thing painted... looks great so far.
I think you should consider Mystic Remora . It may take you a while to get your general down, and Mystic Remora can keep your opponents from playing long enough for you to build up some mana. Or, if they're inexperienced, it can easily be an Ancestral Recall .
You should consider running some more mana-dorks -- they're the main reason to run green, since they'll speed you up like crazy. Deathrite Shaman and Birds of Paradise are the best ones (so crops for running them) but I'd also run things like Elves of Deep Shadow , Fyndhorn Elves and Arbor Elf . Note that using things like Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl will get Arbor Elf to tap for two mana.
I think Nature's Lore is probably better than your Kodama's Reach . I say this because, with 36 lands, you'll usually already have a land in hand when you cast Kodama's Reach , making the to-hand tutor effect less potent. Also, Nature's Lore is two mana and searches an untapped (and not necessarily basic) land, meaning it is effectively one mana on the turn you cast it. If you want to get spicy, Three Visits is a functional reprint for a lot more money.
You may wish to consider Life from the Loam and/or Ramunap Excavator redundant Crucible of Worlds es. I've had good success with both, not least because artifact-removal is frequently harder to dodge than creature-removal in EDH metas.
Sultai colors have a lot of room for disruption. Two favorites of mine are Narset, Parter of Veils and Ashiok, Dream Render . (I honestly think War of the Spark was a mistake.) Both of these cards prohibit your opponents from taking very common actions in Magic, meaning they pin down most decks very well. Worth noting is that Narset, Parter of Veils also builds card advantage, and Ashiok, Dream Render doubles as graveyard hate. If you pair Windfall with Narset, Parter of Veils , you can win on the spot; same is true with your Notion Thief .
Depending on your meta, Carpet of Flowers and Compost may be worth considering. Most metas are at lest 40% blue, at a table of four you'll usually get good value out of Carpet of Flowers . Black is the second most powerful color, so Compost is also frequently useful.
I've never been a fan of Palinchron -loops for infinite mana, since the card seems way more expensive than infinite-mana loops need to be. I think the current best infinite mana combo available is Dramatic Reversal on Isochron Scepter while you have more than 2 mana in rocks or dorks out, and Power Artifact on Grim Monolith also works. Note that Dramatic Reversal is fetchable with your Spellseeker , and that the artifacts are way easier to tutor than creatures (see Whir of Invention , Transmute Artifact , Fabricate , Reshape and friends).
There're a few piece of interaction I think you're missing. Force of Negation is an A card, and Veil of Summer is an easy A+. Nature's Claim is an excellent piece of spot removal; notably, it is stopped by Mental Misstep , which I also think you should run. A mana-free counter for Sol Ring s and Swords to Plowshares es is pretty good, especially with such a 'KILL ME' general. I also think Toxic Deluge is frequently better than Damnation , since it offers more selection with what to kill and can still be cast with Gaddock Teeg on the board.
Lim-Dul's Vault is a tutor to consider.
Finally, Windgrace's Judgment and Casualties of War are good ways to get multi-for-ones in your colors. I've had more luck with Windgrace's Judgment (if only because it's an instant), but both may be worth trying.

Liliana of the Veil is amazing, though unfortunately she is a lot of money. Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is a more affordable alternative -- and if you can flip her fast and consistently, she's arguably just as good. Liliana Vess is also good, but I think she's significantly worse than the aforementioned. If you run some Lilies, Liliana's Triumph becomes even more powerful.
Considering how much of your creatures are under three power, you might want to consider Meekstone if your meta is into the whole attacking thing.
Night of Souls' Betrayal seems like it'd be super dorky in this deck. Your x/1s (like Dusk Legion Zealot ) would die and come back every turn so long as your general is down, so you'd get their triggers on every end step. This will require a lot of build-around, but keep it in mind because it's kinda super powerful.
