Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

While I see that the deck is relatively budget, Phyrexian Obliterator and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx seem like good options here. But devotion's not for everyone, so yeah.

Great start! A few suggestions for mono-black edh:

Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Nirkana Revenant- these create an incredible amount of mana.

Necropotence and Phyrexian Arena provide the best card draw for mono-black.

Black also provides access to some nasty enchantments: my favorite No Mercy, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, painful quandry, and Exquisite Blood

As for creatures: Sheoldred, Whispering One and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed are black staples.

Feel free to check out my Sheoldred deck for some more ideas.


Commander / EDH* Mmyoo


Happy tapping.

Personally, I think any mono-colored deck should be running Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

Helldozer was initially dismissed, but being able to pay to destroy two lands because the first one was nonbasic makes this work for this list.

Imagine getting a bunch of black mana from Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth plus Cabal Coffers plus Thespian's Stage plus Vesuva plus Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx plus Deserted Temple and then dumping that mana all into Helldozer... The salt would be unreal.

Removal Suggestions :

Black Sun's Zenith for a mass removal that can make creatures only 1/1 instead of huge threats, if needed. Also destroys Indestructible.

Silence the Believers because exile > destroy!

Chaos Warp because you never know when an enchantment (something your deck will have a LOT of trouble to get rid of), or something you just can't normally destroy, may come up. But you have to gamble for it.

Scour from Existence is costly, but you can even remove a land.

Unstable Obelisk doubles as ramp, and can remove something.

Grip of Desolation is, again, creature / land exile.

Draw Suggestions :

Phyrexian Arena is just too good to pass up.

Others :

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx because who doesn't love a load of mana when your commander needs that whole lot of it?

Patriarch's Bidding recurs any vampire you've lost.

If you want to play mono-black vampires, I'd highly encourage you to consider Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for your commander. While Olivia's ability is fun, stealing from your opponents is often situational at best, and almost always slow and mana-intensive. Instead, Kalitas allows black to do what it does best - kill everything. Better yet, you don't just kill, you exile all those threats that die, which can often cripple your opponents. Add in cheap auto-sacrifice creatures like Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner and no amount of hexproof or protection-type equipment and/or spells can protect your competitors threats. The actual mono-black commander also color-fixes your mana, leaving you with several good options for non-basics that really shine, like Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Thespian's Stage, Bojuka Bog, etc. but doesn't require you to play anything other than swamps otherwise. Again, Olivia is fun, but moving to a truly mono-black build will immediately make the deck more functional and more competitive.

Primeval Titan and Reliquary Tower could be really viable for when you have a really big hand and bring out those lands quick. Oh and don't forget Garruk Wildspeaker, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Giant Adephage, and Garruk, Caller of Beasts if you want to really spice things up. I have a Red Green Ramp on my profile if you want additional ideas.
