also Dowsing Dagger  Flip on Hunted Phantasm is very good and wins many games. My version is very similar to a burn deck. i dont care about giving opponent creatures and controlling those creatures from attacking me because by that time i win.

Illness in the Ranks along with Blood Artist is another version of the deck that i have been experimenting with along with Ratchet Bomb to control the tokens.

I have this list Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox which has my big list of usual brewing cards.

You might like Night's Whisper, Nezumi Bone-Reader, Ratchet Bomb Whip of Erebos,Languish/Mutilate.

Hi firemen138

Necrogen Mists is budget friendly and essentially ensures an ongoing discard effect. You aren't running any creatures so you might want a board wipe Bontu's Last Reckoning or Mutilate at a push maybe Drown in Sorrow or Bile Blight. You also want Ratchet Bomb in your sideboard to try and deal with Leyline of Sanctity and other problem enchantments or artifacts.

I hope this is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Xica Thanks for all of your insight. I saw a mild synergy between Bomat Courier and One with Nothing as a way of discarding 2-3 cards and then "drawing" 2-4 cards. This a feeble attempt at budgeting Goblin Lore.

To your point about Street Wraith, it seems to have taken a steep drop with the A25 reprinting. I have added it to the deck list in place of One with Nothing.

Abrade is a great suggestion!

Not sure what you mean about Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip?? When creatures get hit with removal Flameblade Adept or if I sac Bomat Courier, Lili  Flip flips and I can re-animate them. I do like the synergies with Jaya Ballard, Task Mage. I might swap Lili for Jaya or even split them 1/1.

Would Relic be better than Ratchet Bomb?

Don't wanna be rude but what is the reason behind the mainboard One with Nothing? is the local meta overrun with Ebony Owl Netsuke/Runeflare Trap meme decks?

If the reason is the price of Street Wraith, you can try Edge of Autumn, or even Faerie Macabre which can be a really good maindeck card to pick up some percentage point against Snapcaster Mage, Lingering Souls & all sorts of graveyard based decks in general.
Both Faithless Looting & Cathartic Reunion live or die by the free cycling/discard effects, as they are badly NEEDED to make any of the decks hallmark explosive multiple Hollow One plays.

And if you can't find a green source Ancient Grudge, Abrade seems to be a strictly better spell. As the second mode is very relevant, it can mean a 2nd playset of removal to slow down storm, or it can be useful in the mirror, or against humans, merfolk, death & taxes, even if they didn't get to their vials.

Ratchet Bomb can only do its Engineered Explosives impression if you have removal to survive long enough, which tends to require being a control deck. Thus its mainly run in decks like skred, that don't play a second color, and can defend themselves long enough to be able to effectively utilize it.

Bomat Courier is a pretty problematic card, it gets stonewalled by anything, and Hollow One decks simpyl don't have the board presence early game to force the opponent to choose between blocking them, or some stronger creature, and once your opponent realize the combo with One with Nothing, those cards will be exiled after any removal spell, thus all those fine Bloodghasts & Flamewake Phoenixes will go to waste.

(and you have no way to turn on Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, which is a great problem if you want to use her, even cards like Jaya Ballard, Task Mage would do more good... (and she is a large liablity in the current removal heavy meta), maybe use something like Infernal Tutor in her place, that card seems to be good in grindy mathcups, it allows you to find second pieces of cards, and the deck lives by doubling up on Hollow One or Flameblade Adept - or it can find the answer you must find, if you get empty handed in grindy game)

Dakmor Salvage is amazing. I don't think it should be cut from the deck, especially considering that you are running The Gitrog Monster. I think The rest of the adds look pretty good, although Alchemist's Refuge is pretty lackluster. I used to play it, but in general (no pun intended), you want to be tapping out on your turn to maximize your Muldrotha value, as Muldrotha, the Gravetide only works on your turn. Liliana Vess is sweet, but doesn't really do much for the deck. The tutor is nice, but there are better options in your colors. I have been having a lot of fun with Kiora, the Crashing Wave, and Forgotten Creation. Kiora draws cards, shuts down permanents, and ramps you. Forgotten Creation basically just draws you a bunch of cards, because you don't care about discarding most of them. As far as the artifacts, Ratchet Bomb is pretty much a worse Pernicious Deed. Is costs less mana, but you need to wait for it to tick up.

Alrighty, took a quick look and made some adjustments, could you tell me what you think darksilver? Going to remove Dakmor Salvage, Elves of Deep Shadow, Roil Elemental, Font of Fortunes, Phyrexian Arena, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Dictate of Karametra, and Temple of the False God. To replace these I was gonna add Realms Uncharted, Horn of Greed,Kiora, Master of the Depths, Secrets of the Dead, Ramunap Excavator, Burgeoning, Sands of Delirium, Elixir of Immortality, Havengul Lich, and Barren Moor. Have not added Alchemist's Refuge yet, need to though. Thinking about removing an artifact to facilitate this, maybe Ratchet Bomb or Wayfarer's Bauble. Or maybe Jace or Liliana... Decisions, decisions. But! I haven't made these changes yet!

In terms of enchantment removal, Argentum Armor and Lux Cannon are both maybe at the top of your curve, but can remove enchantments. Ratchet Bomb might be an option, but with this deck it'll hit you too.
