JKRice on 8-Rack Budget - Updated for Meta 2018

3 weeks ago

I really like the deck. 8-rack was my favorite deck for a while but i abandoned it due to budget problems, so I’m glad someone made a competitive budget version of the deck. I like everything except Pack Rat because if you don’t have any cards in hand, Li can’t copy it. Maybe Nyxathid or Rotting Rats could be good. Also, I’m not sure if Fatal Push is budget enough, but that is probably better than the two cost spells because then you can kill a creature and still have mana for a discard spell T2. An alternative could be Darkblast, letting you you kill stuff or discard it and get it back to kill more things.

Thanks for the suggestions!

The problem with Foil is that it rips two cards from your hand. In a deck that doesn't have many ways to produce "clean" card advantage (apart from Phyrexian Arena and Rhystic Study), this can be a remarkable drawback. I still think that Misdirection and Pact of Negation are more preferable, but I do see its potential.

As for Nyxathid, I included it in my initial build of the deck. Being a 7/7 is very important because it represents a 3-turn clock, but apart from that there aren't many other reasons to want it in the deck. It doesn't have evasion nor trample and it costs three mana to copy, which makes Phyrexian Dreadnought, Hunted Horror and Eater of Days strictly better. I can see it as your "plan D", but I don't think you need it that bad. You can consistently get the three aforementioned creatures whenever you like, so I would not include any other.

I like the way you build this deck. Perheps I will build a similar Lazav deck. Thanks for the inspiration.

Foil would probably be a decent replacment of Force of Will if you are still looking for a free counter. Nyxathid could also be a nice addition to this deck.

Also Nyxathid and Thoughtpicker Witch if you had a bitterblosum you would be able to get fodder or some other type of creature added like grave Titian. Thoughtpicker allows for real oppression because it’s instant speed. So you can say oh your going to draw. Have another land

Since i will lose some life due to the shock, the fetches, Thoughtseize and Surgical Extraction I was thining about creature that could also be a problem for my opponent: Death's Shadow. Could it have any sense instead of Fog Bank, or do you think it's not worth?

Another creature I was considering is Nyxathid, but I need to playtest it.

You have 2 Nyxathid listed. All Hallow's Eve would work well, yes it also brings back your opponents creatures but you should have more and better creatures.Artisan of Kozilek,Journey to Eternity  Flip,Breath of Life,Corpse Connoisseur, Dawn of the Dead would all fit your theme.

i dont like 8 rack but imma help you out, you are going to want like 2x the ammount of removal and probably Bontu's Last Reckoning split some main some side, also man lands are very good in this deck Mutavault is best but for budget you could jank out a Dread Statuary or Spawning Pool

Asylum Visitor is pretty nifty, sb mabey. also run like 4 gy hate cards, Rain of Tears could be fun,Nyxathid = big, Delirium Skeins for control, and Shadow of Doubt is good but creeping up in price

Sargeras on Competitive Mono Black Midrange on a Budget

If you are looking to play 4 copies, I'd suggest cutting the Nyxathids and a Lashwrithe, becuase honestly, with so many decks running Kolaghan's Command nowadays, lashwrithe can get blown out in some matchups. If you are looking to play 3 copies, I'd just swap them out over the Nyxathids.
