If your gonna be "that guy" that runs contamination, you would be silly to not run Ophiomancer to really have your friends flip tables

Ok to start off, you can't run Bringer of the Blue Dawn or Bringer of the Black Dawn because of color identity, which considers mana symbols anywhere on rules text, not just casting cost.

I think you did a pretty good job for a first deck.

You seem to be running a combination of really good cards and out of place shitty cards. Unless there is some combo or synergy you have with them that I'm missing I think the following cards are garbage and should be cut:

Colfenor's Plans Binding Grasp Transcendence Etherwrought Page Celestial Dawn Words of Wind Reap Intellect Necrologia

is Darksteel Forge just to protect the commander? run Lightning Greaves instead, it's waaaaay cheaper to play.

because it's a sorcery and it goes to top of library rather than hand Cruel Tutor is almost strictly worse than Diabolic Tutor

If your opponents are going off way faster than you then you need to think about how to upset their early game with hate pieces. In combo heavy metas cards like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare and Glowrider slow your opponents down enough to let you gain control of the situation Kambal, Consul of Allocation also gains you life to stick around as they cast themselves to death. for creature heavy metas cards like Archfiend of Depravity, Ophiomancer, forced sac like Butcher of Malakir Dictate of Erebos and Magus of the Tabernacle can really fuck over a lot of decks. For pure control, stax is usually the best option in competitive EDH since relying on counterspells and spot removal to keep 3 other players in check isn't feasible. I also always recommend some graveyard hate in any deck Nihil Spellbomb Relic of Progenitus Grafdigger's Cage Rest in Peace Tormod's Crypt Crypt Incursion Silent Gravestone are all good and cheap to play. I also personally put Necropotence in every black deck, It's so good it honestly should be banned. other good general control cards are Force of Will Pact of Negation Mystic Confluence and Cryptic Command.

I'm not really clear on the win con. Something like a Blightsteel Colossus, any of the preators, or a x mana life drain like Debt to the Deathless, Exsanguinate, or Torment of Hailfire could kill of opponents once you've stabilized the game.

After doing some play testing (in a 1v1 environment, sadly) I found Whisper, Blood Liturgist to be fairly powerful as a stax piece with Liliana's Specter or Mindslicer and Eternal Witness or Ophiomancer. The reason I say eternal witness is for situations where you have something like Smallpox in grave with two more black producing dorks or a piece of removal so the opp will, essentially, spend their turn doing nothing. In a 1v1 environment, the instant speed reanimation provided by whisper can cut the opponent off of top decking an answer for the lock you create, while also putting things into the grave that you want for the next turn, such as witness or rec sage.

Also, whats your take on Mana Web? obviously in conjunction with Winter Orb it can be very powerful, forcing the opponent into a position where they need to think "okay do i need to respond or do i want my next turn" while also acting as a psudo Arcane Laboratory against other midrange/control decks on its own, I'd love to hear your thoughts on both cards.

Ophiomancer would be nice to consistently keep up a deathtoucher. Curse of Opulence is a really good political tool too.

Contamination+Bitterblossom/Reassembling Skeleton/Ophiomancer creates a lock that any non-black deck will have trouble with. Looks great!

Found the deck while searching decks that abuse Grim Monolith. This looks like an absolute nightmare to play against. I love it.

I think you should probably put Ophiomancer in the Contamination combo area in the description though.

Bitterblossom and Ophiomancer are cool! Especially Bitterblossom because of the flying, it seems very valuable. I'll work it in and consider Ophiomancer as well!
