Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion
1 hour ago
Oh! to your question regarding Abyssal Gatekeeper, his sacrifice effect is an effect, not a cost. So if he dies, everyone sacs a creature. If you have no creatures to sac, it's fine, but everyone else still has to sac.
It's different from Razaketh, the Foulblooded where the sac part is part of the cost. With this card, you can't use the effect if you have no creature to sac. That's where abyssal gatekeeper is different. With fleshbag marauder, it's similar, but he can just sac himself to his own effect, where the gatekeeper can't.

You also need some more 1 & 2 drop creatures (and a full playset) if you want to run this aggro and less bigger creatures ( razaketh, the foulblooded , Sengir Vampire, etc.). Ideally you'd be looking to drop a creature each turn or do something quickly so your opponents don't have time to ramp up to bigger creatures.
You'd also want more synergy in your deck overall (i.e. more pirates so march of the drowned lands it's full potential) so you have a better chance of pulling off combos.
Otherwise I recommend checking out some other mono-black aggro decks!

Looks like your land-base could use more W sources and fewer B sources.
I think you can go down to 36 or 34 lands, bring in some utility lands (like High Market), fetches, shocks, and other kinds of dual lands and still be okay.
With the spaces you have left, think of other utility creatures, perhaps. Razaketh, the Foulblooded, for example, would make good use of your extra life as a tutor. Ghost Council of Orzhova and Obzedat, Ghost Council come to mind, as well.
Greed would be a good card-draw enchantment given your life-gain.
Bring some mana rocks into your artifact pool (like Orzhov Signet), a few board wipes into your sorceries, some spot removal (especially exile effects) into your instants, and maybe a synergistic planeswalker or two, like Elspeth Tirel or Sorin, Grim Nemesis.

I run a more creature-heavy list over at Snow-Covered Kaalia; please do check it out if you think it might be of use to compare notes.
I really gotta get a Boros Charm.
A few cards that might be fun to test with here: Kilnmouth Dragon, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Scourge of the Throne, and snow-covered basics + Rimescale Dragon. Maybe a Savage Beating for good measure.

For people on the "ban Doubling Season" hype train here. Here are all the commanders that go infinite with a single card:
- Animar, Soul of Elements + Ancestral Statue
- Arcum Dagsson + Paradox Engine
- Azami, Lady of Scrolls + Paradox Engine (with mana rocks)
- Brago, King Eternal + Strionic Resonator (with mana rocks)
- Captain Sisay + Paradox Engine (with mana dorks)
- Ezuri, Claw of Progress + Sage of Hours
- Inalla, Archmage Ritualist + Wanderwine Prophets
- Mairsil, the Pretender + Mirror-Mad Phantasm
- Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity or Ophidian Eye
- Prossh, Skyraider of Kher + Food Chain
- Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Genesis Chamber (with 0-drops and Aetherflux Reservoir)
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds + Umbral Mantle, Staff of Domination, or Paradox Engine
- Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Aetherflux Reservoir
- Teferi, Temporal Archmage + The Chain Veil (with mana rocks)
- Teysa, Orzhov Scion + Darkest Hour (with sac outlets)
- The Gitrog Monster + Dakmor Salvage (with a discard outlet)
Ad that's not even counting all the cards that are essentially a 1 card combo in and of themselves, like:
- Ad Nauseam
- Boonweaver Giant (with sac outlets)
- Hermit Druid
- Protean Hulk (Why did they unban this??)
Or all the commanders who win the game automatically if you can get a simple infinite mana combo off, which are too many to list here.
My point is that Commander is already super broken on a competitive level because the RC doesn't care about banning competitive cards. Having Doubling Season with PW commanders doesn't even come close to the level of broken that's already possible in EDH, and it would be stupid to ban it. (Especially since it's a lot harder to cheat out a 5 mana enchantment than a lot of the combos I listed above.)

I like the strategy here a lot!
I wonder if Damia, Sage of Stone might be a helpful commander since you do so much top-deck manipulation.
I also think Arbiter of the Ideal is a house in this deck. Have you tested with fewer, more targeted non-permanent spells to take full advantage of that card? Maybe run a few creatures like Kiora's Follower and the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo?
You could tutor up the Arbiter with lots of BG cards (Dark Petition, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Worldly Tutor, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Rune-Scarred Demon, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, etc.).
I worry that the number of instants and sorceries you run might interfere with Arbiter's value.
Anyhow - sweet strategy and happy brewing!

I love Kaalia!
I run a more creature-heavy version of the deck over at Snow-Covered Kaalia; please take a look if you'd like to see if there are any useful cards over there.
Have fun brewing!
