HI all, I want to make nasty land denial mono black deck, where opponent will be locked to play spells.
- KEY CARDS - I like card combination Desolation+ Ankh of Mishra - every turn player taps mana - losts one, and new land costs him 2 life
- CASTING SPELLS - Desolation and Ankh hurts me too, so I wish to use alternative pay cards, Im thinking about:
- MANA - because of Desolation hurts me too, Im thinking about mana generation:
Blood Pet - mana which I can use later and it is not affected by Desolation
Chrome Mox - Desolation doesnt affect it, I know Mox Diamond but its more expensive
Dark Ritual - mana acceleration
any artifacts which generate mana?
Dunes of the Dead - create a creature when its destroyed with Desolation
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
- DAMAGE / LIFE LOSS - idea is limit the possibilities to cast spells of opponent and hurt him by Black Vise
Gurmag Angler - use delve to cast him as soon as possible, and to clean graveyard from creatures for Nether Spirit. I was thinking about Tombstalker because he is flyer, but Angler is mana-cheaper.
- DRAW - because I would like to play alternative cost cards I need to have many cards in hand. I was thinking about draw spells as Night's Whisper but I need every turn draw, no only once draw spell. So Im thinking about:
Anvil of Bogardan - maybe its bettter than Howling Mine because it makes opponents hand with no limit which support Black Vise damage.
- LAND DAMAGE - I need to destroy opponents lands as much as possible to lock him to cast aby spell
I know its messy right now and far from final deck but this is what I have right now. Problem is that I need mana to play key cards (Black Vise, Ankh, Desolation, Sinkhole) so I dont know how many lands to play.
Please do you have any advice and improvements? Thank you very much for you time.

Hello, I had some spare time and thought I might try to improve this. The link to it is https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/pauper-lands-improvement/?cb=1542244270 otherwise I want to compliment you on the idea and on Radiant Fountain against agro and Bojuka Bog against graveyard decks. Ancient Spring is not a good fit because of mana colors, Khalni Garden you don't need the token. Peat Bog, Sandstone Needle and Saprazzan Skerry give mana colors you don't need or are just a land that does not fit. Anyway, nice variation on zombie hunt in pauper!

The decks that play cheap spells like affinity, burn, tron, bogles, infect and mono decks are going to be a problem for sure, Dark Ritual Lotus Petal Peat Bog could be useful early game slowing there plans by unloading those discard spells from your hand quick, and you may want to include at least Diabolic Edict or Chainer's Edict or Geth's Verdict to deal with hexproof, also a good way to deal with delver of secrets, infect / weenies is Serrated Arrows, Nihil Spellbomb is good for those turn 2 or 3 exhume ulamog decks and flashback

I'm playing a really similar X deck (Canonically, X put Pheobe into the head of S.N.E.A.K. with no apparent motives, but that's besides the point), except it seems like my deck relies more on stealing rather than disguises. Your manabase could use a bit of work for one, Lonely Sandbar / Barren Moor is always resourceful late-game, and Sand Silos / Peat Bog are insanely useful early on and ramp you up really well. I don't have too many suggestions because I like Control/Abduction rather than Copy/Shapeshifter, but I would like to add that playing as many fun artifacts as you can is immensely fun. I've got a Magistrate's Scepter, Transmogrifying Wand and Everflowing Chalice, and they really add a layer of spice. My recommendation has to be Tamiyo's Journal in terms of artifacts, because of it's powerful Draw advantage and Tutoring abilities. It may be slow, but it can turn the tides of a game.

Is Peat Bog there with any specific intent in mind or is it there as your "best land available at last" type of deal? I'm asking this question because there are certain lands that I'd use over it and Lake of the Dead, like the somewhat new Luxury Suite and even cards like Exotic Orchard and Reflecting Pool.
I do have some issues with the filler Artifacts that you are using, though I have yet to do my own research to see if there are any superior options.
Great list nonetheless!

Roally, I am also curious about your thoughts on Phyrexian Tower. I've been trying it out as a replacement for Peat Bog. I've found Peat Bog to be very frustrating. Most of the time when I draw it, I have a bunch of fast-mana I want to drop on turn 1 so that I can complete my combo by turn 2-3. To take advantage of Peat Bog I need to play it turn 1 but, I find that it often gets in the way of dropping my artifacts. The most frustrating thing I have experienced so far with Phyrexian Tower is getting locked out of a black mana when I need one because I didn't draw a creature or any colored fast-mana. After about 100 games it feels like Phyrexian Tower has roughly the same % drawback as Peat Bog.

I think you're right, I'll replace some removal with card draw. Ad Nauseam is probably good, I just don't like the thought of getting hit for huge amounts of damage by Phantasmagorian and some of the more expensive reanimation targets. I think I'm gonna test it anyway. I have all the good rocks in my Arcum Dagsson deck right now, but if this ends up being any good I will get more or switch them over. Charcoal Diamond isn't really that bad. It's played in Sidisi, Undead Vizier Ad Nauseam decks too, but I may cut the Peat Bog or something if it becomes a big problem. If I can get my hands on a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed I'll pick it up. Thanks a ton for the suggestions I'll update the list when I get some more time.
