Bloodgift Demon is better than Indulgent tormentor, Dread Return than Whisper, blood litrugist. Erebos's Titan , Wake the Dead should fit in here nicely. Thespian's Stage can copy the coffers. Pitiless Plunderer and Pawn of Ulamog have strong on-death triggered abilities. Phyrexian Delver is one of my favourite cards. I don't think Corrosive mentor is any good. Entomb and some discard enablers like Putrid Imp would strenghten the reanimator aspect of your deck. Living Death and Twilight's Call should be great since you both have means to fill your graveyard and empty your opponents'. Filth might be good. More sacrifice enablers like Viscera Seer or Bloodflow Connoisseur wouldn't hurt. Exsanguinate is a great way to spend large amounts of mana. I would recommend replacing Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tenacious Dead with Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Marsh Flitter or Sengir Autocrat .

Apollo_Paladin: When I talked about Dredge, I showed how Putrid Imp led to a Turn 2 victory for a deck. It's not a Madness Enabler, it's a Graveyard enabler, which is a far greater problem.

No legacy Madness build is complete without Putrid Imp , the nastiest Turn-1 drop for a madness deck.

Shoot, forgot to add, you might also consider something to discard, like Putrid Imp that offer you a good means to get creatures you draw into the graveyard... and he might even ping them for 1 in doing it! ;)

Looks great! What's the point of Putrid Imp ???

How about Meteor Golem as a way to get rid of problem permanents since we are mono-black? I know this seems a bit wonky, but with our access to a discard outlet in the Command Zone as well as Putrid Imp in the 99, reanimating the fat-bodied Golem is very doable. Of course the 7cmc is hard on old Bob, though. Just a thought.

Nice deck, I think it has good potential.

I suggest Putrid Imp and Dragon Breath . Who doesn't like a turn 2 win?

I'm pretty sure you don't need 14 big boys to get the reanimator effect. If you really want the effect to happen I suggest something with dredge like Stinkweed Imp .

Finally I suggest removing Predatory Nightstalker (a 3/2 for five?) and replace it with Geth's Verdict or Victim of Night . If you want a creature, make it a Perilous Myr .
