Profane Command Discussion

Kaleidescope - Thanks for the suggestions! I really like Profane Command and have added it in. The flexibility is awesome. As for Eldritch Evolution, I like the card, but most of my creatures in my deck I really want to keep on the field. I'll test it out though and see how it does.

From my experience, Gifted Aetherborn > Gravecrawler and heres why.

Aetherborn has an additional devotion, which pumps gary bigger, but also I dont think crawler's ability is really relevant. For one, he cant block, which makes him somewhat worse the later in the game you draw him, but also Bloodghast is just better due to the free landfall and the fact he can have haste without another card. Gifted Aetherborn, however, is a very good card in early, mid, and late game as he can give you a boost in life, and he can trade for a creature much more valuable.

Also, this deck could use some more reliable card advantage, so I would recommend at least 1 copy of Phyrexian Arena, so you are more likely to hit the lands you need to stay on curve.

I do not see a reason to take out Geralf's Messenger, just for the fact he is a reliable creature with a nice upside to combat decks like control. Switching him out would be a mistake.

Also, no point in running Profane Command, it doesnt bring much to the game for you, and you are right, it is way too expensive to do anything with.

Oh! I almost forgot Fulminator Mage! The value against all tron variants is huge, depending on your meta. If you dont want to main him, you can just put a few copies in the sideboard just in case the matchup comes up.

Dont mean to sound harsh, sorry if this came off that way, really hope this helps, love the MBD archetype, hate it when decks add green and veer off into more of a Phyrexian Obliterator centered playstyle.

Nice start, if you want more fun and games, try putting in some mass-removal like Damnation, Decree of Pain, Crux of Fate, and stuff like that. Also, if you want even more slowing-stuff, take out the land-removal and put in some more Stax cards like Smokestack, Tangle Wire, Omen Machine, Possessed Portal, and stuff. As far as spot removal, I'd advise putting in some stuff like Innocent Blood, Dismember, Geth's Verdict, Unlicensed Disintegration, Profane Command, Torment of Hailfire, Doomsday, Infernal Tribute, Kolaghan's Command, Necropotence, Tainted AEther, Void, Charmbreaker Devils, and you see I gave up on whatever I was saying and just started listing good cards. Anyway, good luck. You might want more creatures.

Couple cards you might consider:

Eldritch Evolution - Good cheap creature tutor. Can also get Obi unlike alot of others.

Profane Command - Can do lots of great stuff early or late game. Kill a creature, resurrect one, give some of your guys evasion, drain someone. Pick two.

Well I have played a lot of modern, feel the deck isn't really very competitive, however I'll leave these here for your Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Profane Command The command can just end the game on a top deck, but other uses are there to for it.

Kholinar on Mono-Black Devotion

Can I get some stats on Profane Command? I don't like mana syncs with X in the mana cost, and would rather be able to play another creature. The first turn it would be useful is turn 4, when I can pay X = 2 to return something like Bloodghast, then give Geralf's Messenger an evasion tactic. I see the value in removing indestructible creatures, but this is expensive manawise. The face burn is rather slow, and the removal is somewhat sub-premium. That turn needs to be either Obliterator or Kalitas, trying for some serious turn five beatdown.

As for Extirpate versus Surgical Extraction, I'm aware of the advantages of the latter, but I only own the former. Also, Extirpate can't be countered, which is a problem against Blue decks that want to keep hold of their 4-of spells. Will change the list to reflect a more competitive deck.
