Peat Bog Discussion

Haunting Misery is strictly in this deck as a back-up plan for when Consume Spirit fails in terms of getting enough damage. For example, lets say you get to 16 mana and they are at 20 life, you only have 15 points of damage with your Consume Spirit alone. With the use of Haunting Misery you are able to get in with the needed extra damage. The land drops were an issue until I made the addition of 3 Peat Bog. A 4 of Peat Bog could be used if you are absolutely dead set on needing to combo off on turn 3 or 4 but I have found that running 3 instead of 4 leaves room for more consistency.

Might be worth it to play Cabal Ritual, Unearth, Duress, and/or Altar's Reap/Costly Plunder for card draw or Devour Flesh for life and avoiding Echoing Truth issues. I've also seen the suggestion of Peat Bog which is great for the mono-color of this deck but it could be almost as good to just play a bounce land so that you don't lose it after two uses and splash a color with the slight disadvantage that it might be harder [but not much harder] to ensure you always have those two blacks for rats or gary.

This deck is going to be a lot better than folks are thinking. My build is similar to yours but didn't include the draw option Sign in Blood which might be useful in a few rare circumstances but for now I'm relying on Barren Moor and Unearth cycling to grab cards if I'm desperate. I also like the inclusion of Peat Bog quite a bit. I'd probably play Crypt Rats main board but I'd definitely play some spot removal in the side at least. Excellent deck and black has too many options here.

I'd also highly recommend some more non-basics like Lake of the Dead, Wasteland, Strip Mine, Peat Bog, Barren Moor, Everglades, Bojuka Bog, Volrath's Stronghold, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Cabal Coffers.

This is a really cool deck and I appreciate your concept of old border cards. Because I wasn't totally familier with the old-border cards myself, i've had to look a bunch of cards. Below you'll find list of cards, you might consider. Regarding the "nightmare" level these cards will give your opponent, thats for you to decide.
Suggestions of likewise cards to your currect configuration:Skeletal Scrying -- Card draw by exiling cards in your graveyard. It can also function as mana dumb.Greed -- Serves the same function as Skeletal Scrying. Instead, you pay 2 life and to draw a card.Gangrenous Goliath -- Another way of utilizing Clerics able to tap for an effect.Headhunter -- Another Cleric with a discard trigger and morph.Restless Dreams -- Allows you to get rid of unwanted cards or cards you want in your graveyard and could return the cheaper or needed Clerics to your hand.
Other lands you might consider:Pine Barrens -- Slow pain-land.Tainted Wood -- Can make both and , as long you have a Swamp.Ebon Stronghold/Peat Bog -- Can sacrifices for . Peat Bog will do this twice, before its sacrificed.Cabal Coffers -- Will ramp your into Scion of Darkness faster.
I hope some of these cards, will make your decks more nightmare-ish for your opponents.
