Great deck. I love your description, thanks for all the work you put into that! I would suggest Scuttlemutt instead of Opaline Unicorn . One tap of scuttlemutt to make the attacking creature W or B can make that big threat harmless in the face of Animar.

Two more land recommendations: Khalni Garden , taking out one Forest, then Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree taking out any land.

Removing Opaline Unicorn for Oketra's Monument could be good for getting extra tokens. The deck already has a lot of mana generation, especially with the addition of cryptolith rite. Now, it will remove a nontoken creature from the deck, but it'll generate you more creatures.

@Burg+1: I checked the deck out just to see if it even has enough in it to handle even Tier 3 Decks in cEDH. I'm truly sorry to say, I'd rather have Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger befriend Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur & Sheoldred, Whispering One , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger & Urabrask the Hidden , Sheoldred, Whispering One for Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger & Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Urabrask the Hidden for Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite & Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , & lastly, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite for Sheoldred, Whispering One & Urabrask the Hidden . Phyrexia has all 5 colors now. If they are stronger than Pre-Mending Era Phyrexians (Not counting Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , they need to set their differences aside, & use those differences as their better abilities. Case in point, The deck is just more casual than what I'm trying to aim for. Maybe Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is Tier 4; but that's not what I'm aiming to do. What I'm aiming for is to get more CMDRS to Tier 3 the least; & even your deck would shame its status on a tierlist that measures the very status of each CMDR in cEDH. I can't apologize enough, man. It's an effort; albeit not what I wanted to do...

...But since you have a deck that utilizes artifice; I've been working on 5 Strategies that have been known to prevail in cEDH; so I STILL have a use just for you; in spite of not knowing what cEDH is...

As I'm working on Combo 2/5, which allows the use of infinite Colored mana in only these colors: , , . I wanted to use a Artifact Mana Dork is opposed to your usual Rock, I had three kinds of ways for them to make mana: Pili-Pala , Opaline Unicorn (& her other Tap for mana variants.), & Prismite . Since I wanted some way to make infinite mana this way; w/o running out of gas. Sure, is what this deck wants, but I can't go infinite w/ Grand Architect (It is in .), but... Maybe there's another way... Those Kiki-Jiki combos... Not using Thornbite Staff , Maybe something like Opaline Unicorn + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + (One more thing...), is there a copier in that can copy either? I'm just interested now...

Well, during my tests for One mana of any color Artifact Dorks, Pili-Pala could only go so far w/ Clock of Omens before running out of gas. Tap Dorks like Opaline Unicorn did far worse; & the same went for Prismite as well, but Tap, or Untap; I can't think of any better ideas. Unless someone can make an infinite mana combo that's Boros Friendly, & involves a dork like Pili-Pala , Prismite , or any Artifact Dork that taps for mana. I'll still seeking ideas for this though...

Infinite Tests:

Test 1: Infinite Mana.

Cards used: Sol Ring , Opaline Unicorn or Prismite , & Clock of Omens

Test One: Twilight Sparkle is Promoted to Transcendence Beyond Dimensional Layers.

  1. Opaline Unicorn , Sol Ring , & Clock of Omens are in play. Activate Clock. Tap Clock & Ring. Untap Sol Ring . Tap Opaline Unicorn for mana.

  2. Progress resets. Clock of Omens is tapped, & Sol Ring is untapped. Can't do any further activations as there is not enough untapped targets.

Result: Expelling from all form of education.

This also rules out Alloy Myr , & Scuttlemutt .

Test Two: Unity is not enough unless Odds can help the Evens is oppose to hurting them; hard.

  1. Prismite , Sol Ring , & Clock of Omens are in play. Clock activates. Tap Prismite , & Clock of Omens . Clock of Omens untaps. Sol Ring taps to allow Prismite one Mana.

  2. Progress resets. Clock of Omens can't use its ability as the last of the 3 card combo.

Result: REKT

Rebooting...

As it turned out; Prismite may be the best choice we have. It's Pauper friendly, & I'd like an infinite Colored Mana combo outside of Treasure Makers like Wily Goblin . I already might have a way, but I'd like something besides Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth . If that works, we have a new resident Mana Dork in strict officialness.

Reboot Complete.

Now I just want an infinite Pauper Mana Combo w/ either Prismite , Opaline Unicorn , or that daned Pili-Pala ...

I'll zip it from here. Sorry for yet another Wall of Text...

@bushido_man96: Why would I put something like that when a card that removes the whole yard for all players is still in the deck? Even w/ the best combos, you'd still would instead, lose the key piece to such combos. & I already have a Mill Deck that works better than Helm of Obedience + Rest in Peace anyway. Why has nobody put in Altar of the Brood + Ancestral Statue + Rest in Peace as a combo yet? Not only does it cost less, but even Altar of the Brood is just , Statue is , & Rest in Peace is . & the effect applies to all opponents; not one at a time as you make them kick the bucket. What does Enduring Renewal even do when Rest in Peace is even in play? I'd like a notion on this before someone steals it. :P

Oh, & somebody make the above combo an actual thing, please. It might be worth it.

As for Pili-Pala , I used Sol Ring & Clock of Omens . Process?

  1. Activate Clock of Omens . Tap Pili-Pala & Clock of Omens . Sol Ring remains untapped. Untapped Clock of Omens .

  2. Pay with Sol Ring , Untap Moth Scarecrow , thus add one mana of any color. Moth is Untapped.

  3. Same as Step 1. This time, I Tap Clock of Omens , & Mothcrow. Sol Ring is untapped.

  4. Tap Sol Ring . Moth Crow (I think it was from Welsh Mythology? Some kind of Lore that has scarecrows, & one has this name...) untaps, & adds one more mana.

  5. Clock of Omens activates again. But it needs two targets; & there's only one, the Scarecrow Moth itself.

Combo = BS.

What to do make Pili-Pala viable here? Not sure if Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth even works here either. I've no time for testing though. I'm doing other things... Though... I have two other failsafes: Opaline Unicorn & Prismite . They seem far better than Pili-Pala anyway... XP

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math

I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:

Mana Crypt pricey but spicey

Charcoal Diamond goes so well with Sol Ring

Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia - especially if you somehow get more proliferate

Extraplanar Lens

Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are good if you want double-down on sacrificing your own creatures.

Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck

Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)

Deserted Temple , Vesuva , Candelabra of Tawnos and Thespian's Stage to double-down on Cabal Coffers.

Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.

Expedition Map and/or Wayfarer's Bauble to tutor itfor all your powerful lands.

I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.

Other mono ramp

I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.

Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all

Magus of the Coffers is slow, but might be worth it. Crypt Ghast is a better version.

Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are good in any deck that sacrifices often

Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck

Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses

I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix

Priest of Yawgmoth and Soldevi Adnate work if you hate your own stuff

Leaden Myr , Hedron Crawler , Manakin , Scuttlemutt , Alloy Myr , Opaline Unicorn , Palladium Myr are usually worse than rocks, but maybe you want?

Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black

Sol Ring every edh deck should include this

Star Compass , Fellwar Stone , Fractured Powerstone , Mind Stone all fill similar voids

Thran Dynamo , Ur-Golem's Eye , Worn Powerstone , Gilded Lotus , Hedron Archive , Sisay's Ring

Pillar of Origins for tribal decks

Consider Pentad Prism , Kyren Toy , or Coalition Relic for proliferate

In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment  Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern

Thought Vessel if you fill your hand

Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage

Lotus Bloom , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , Grim Monolith , and Lotus Petal for explosive potential

Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out

Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing

Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts

Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures

Caged Sun , Doubling Cube , and Gauntlet of Power are fair if you want to reach that high mana

Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game

Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not

Jet Medallion and Heartless Summoning do a lot of work if you play many cards in a turn

Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos

These mostly work for combo/explosive turns

Bubbling Muck for explosive/combo turns

Dark Ritual for getting a turn 2 Crypt Ghast , etc.

Sacrifice and Culling the Weak for sacrificing. They go nicely with Songs of the Damned

Spoils of Evil for lategame combos

Rain of Filth must be used with caution

Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard

Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures

Cabal Coffers is a staple

It's porbably unnessecary, but if you end up with few basic swamps, consider Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to supplement your Cabal Coffers .

Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.

  1. Leonin Warleader for Junk Diver - diver has very little board pressure , unless your in a very specific situation this little guys not guna do much
  2. Kor Firewalker for Thundersong Trumpeter - very nice upgrade to stop big blockers or to stop big atraxas from swing at you lol,
  3. Loyal Cathar  Flip for Archetype of Courage - one extra colourless to add a very nice board presence, now when people double block for menace u can usually first strike down one of the blockers immediatly

a few more creatures i would like to see squeeze in would be

  1. Archangel of Tithes
  2. Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice
  3. Captain Lannery Storm .

i would suggest either Hammer Dropper and perhaps a 1 drop like Doomed Traveler or Figure of Destiny or even the Opaline Unicorn . the figure seems good but u gota sink alot of mana into him and u would rather be playing creatures then sinking into him

a few suggestions for land upgrades, this one is about 8 bucks but an upgrade none the less Rugged Prairie and i also suggest looking at these. Make sure not to add any more tapped lands unless you remove a few first, too many tap lands with aggro is not good for a fast start

  1. Sejiri Steppe
  2. Command Tower
  3. Windbrisk Heights
