Ratchet Bomb Discussion

Profet93 on Back in Black... Suicide Black

16 hours ago

Soul Conduit or Mirror Universe just for fun? Also +1 for using Imp's mischief and Withering Boon, those (aside from Chains) are my 2 FAVORITE black cards. Who doesn't love casting withering boon by yelling kamehaha in response to an opponent's commander?

Was gonna suggest Necropotence but I saw the above thread. Adding soul conduit is a way to make your deck weaker yet still synergistic if that's what you're looking for? Conduits been a pet card of mine and I LOVE suicide black!

Maybe find room for Thespian's Stage and Expedition Map ? Stage to copy coffers. Map to find urborg, coffers, boseju, etc....

I see now way for you to deal with artifacts and enchantments. Have you considered adding Ratchet Bomb , Blast Zone , Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Nev disk, Oblivion Stone or even All Is Dust ? Adding at least one of these will give you an answer when you need it.

Ancient Tomb > Temple of False

Where is your card draw? Tome of Legends , Endless Atlas as are both cheaper and re-useable. Adding another wheel in the form of Magus of the Wheel or Wheel of Fortune could be helpful.

Imperial Recruiter - To tutor for Kiki or whatever

Feldon of the Third Path - Reuse and abuse ETBS

Might want to consider some enchantment hate in the form of Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Ratchet Bomb , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Karn Liberated or Blast Zone among others.

Do we care about Goblin Rabblemaster at this point? I understand it as another win condition but we can play other prison pieces such as Sorcerous Spyglass , Ratchet Bomb , and the like. I understand the need for a faster win condition than Karn and Mycosynth Lattice but I feel like prison would care for something along the lines of Koth of the Hammer , Chandra or My Future Wife

I'd put a few cards that directly deal with the decks your up against. So the first one that comes to mind is Ratchet Bomb , this card easily destroys tokens at a very low cost. Also has enough versatility to take care of other stuff as well. This card is super cheap. You can pick them up for a buck.

Cabal Coffers for ramp

How do you deal with artifacts and enchantments? Oblivion Stone , Nevinyrral's Disk , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Blast Zone , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated all come to mind.

Imp's Mischief is "counters" counterspells, redirects removal and some extra turn cards. More importantly, no one expects it from black.

I got some ideas for cuts if you're interested, lmk.

Alright! Thanks for the suggestions. I will definitely be considering these. However, I do have some counterpoints:

This deck doesn't have too much card draw, so having a high land count aids in making sure I hit each land for the turn. If I have any excess, I can just discard them to my effects. I'd love to have Urborg in here, but I haven't been able to get ahold of one. I do intend to add Ransack the Lab over a land, as well.

Murderous Rider could be fine, but it loses me two life and I prefer the promo art of Hero's Downfall .

Hellfire is just a pet card of mine. I've had it for years, and I don't intend to remove it. Mutilate is a good addition, though. I'll have to find room for it.

This deck always just loses to Rest in Peace , or effects of the sort, so Nevinyrral's Disk is fantastic. Same with Ratchet Bomb ; that has efficacy to it. Ugin and Karn are a bit out of budget, however.

Ill-Gotten Gains exists for the political aspect. If I return a Mindslicer , I can kind of control what my opponents do with the cards or they just risk losing them entirely. But I do see your point. Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed would be great, but that's over one-hundred dollars right now. Necromancy is probably my best bet.

Thank you very much!

Cut Swamp to go to 38 lands, 39 is too much

Cut swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Upgrade and goes with coffers and non-swamps

Cut swamp for Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or any utility land like cradle, strip mine, etc...

Murderous Rider > Hero's Downfall

Hellfire is such an expensive card that hurts you, cut for something cheaper like Dead of Winter , Mutilate or Toxic Deluge .

How are you dealing with artifacts and enchantments? One Rest in Peace and you lose unless you make them proactively discard it which isn't always possible. Some suggestions of budget and nonbudget include....

Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Boompile , Ratchet Bomb , Perilous Vault , Blast Zone etc...

Ill-Gotten Gains seems like it can backfire a large portion of the time. What is the purpose of it, to put creatures in yards or general recursion? If you're looking for recursion of black cards, Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed can do the trick. General recursion can be down with Yawgmoth's Will . Artifact/Creature recursion can be done with Beacon of Unrest (not suggesting beacon, but just an idea to note).

IMO, the real reason I like Kukusho is for the lifegain. Getting 15 life allows you to get that much more card advantage. With ALL the ramp black has and all the card draw your commander provides, you should be able to win very easily. If your group knows you're going to cast repay in kind due to all your lifeloss, I wouldn't be surprised if it got countered or if they killed you prior to you being able to do so. Idk about your meta and the lvl of interaction but that's worth noting.

Thought Vessel > Charcoal Diamond - You already have enough black sources and the no max hand size is extremely useful for digging.

Reliquary Tower > Barren Moor - Utility > Looting. ESPECIALLY with necropotence, idk why it isn't in the deck already.

Again, Sol Ring , why isn't it in the deck?

You're also EXTREMELY vulnerable to artifacts and enchantments as you haven't slotted any removal for them. Some budget and non-budget options include....

Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Boompile , Ratchet Bomb , Perilous Vault , etc...
