Reiver Demon and Desolation Angel don't work in this case.

Really dislike this because of the new Bruna, the Fading Light. No Brisela, Voice of Nightmares for me.

Ok, a few more updates have been made. In are Blanket of Night and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Also in are Trailblazer's Boots and Reiver Demon, along with a few others.

In Garruk's Wake

Plague Wind

Dread Cacodemon

Nevinyrral's Disk

I also have a mono-black Commander deck of my own that may provide you with some other ideas:

Cut Reiver Demon and Endless Whispers add to my Jund EDH. I also decided to take out Spiteful Visions, Dauthi Embrace, Pyrohemia. I added Rakdos Charm, Hissing Miasma, and Farsight Mask to test out because There is a lot of token decks in my play group.

I completely blanked on Volrath; I thought his ability was removal, not pump. That's what I get for not looking at the Commander before commenting.

In that case, keep Draco, and then consider the following:

Shizo, Death's Storehouse is a great way to get Volrath through against nonblack/nonartifact creatures. You can basically remove any land to include it.

Trailblazer's Boots is generally better than cards like Brawler's Plate- while it doesn't contribute a +2 power increase, it is almost half as much mana to play and attach while also having significantly better evasion (as even mono color decks in Commander run a bunch of nonbasic lands).

Key to the City is a new card worth looking into, as it wouldn't require any additional mana in order to make Volrath unblockable once it is out.

Filth and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth form an excellent little combination to make Volrath unblockable. You should be running Urborg, anyway, and Filth would be a strong inclusion over something like Greven-Il Vec whose only purpose is to be tossed to Volrath (when you toss Filth, you make Volrath unblockable against 1/5th of the colors of magic. That's worthwhile even if a little less powerful).

Artisan of Kozilek, It That Betrays and other Eldrazi would be perfect in this deck. You could easily remove illegal cards like Infernal Spawn of Evil for Artisan, who actually works better in the deck as a whole. Pestilence Demon is better than a lot of your creatures on the higher end, as well, and Reiver Demon would be your new best friend.

Oversold Cemetery would probably be better than some of your other recursion cards at the moment. Or, the cheaper Palace Siege may be worth a look (perhaps over Macabre Waltz).

Agreed! He was in the deck list I built before I redid it today with the cards I ordered and what I had already.

But he's defiantly going in here! I want Reiver Demon too. It defiantly needs Griselbrand to be a Liliana themed deck but damn, he's expensive!

I'm thinking about dropping Crypt Incursion for Diabolic Tutor because not only does it have Liliana on the artwork it will be very handy to retrieve my 1 copy of Army of the Damned.

I flat out refuse to assist anyone in building with this commander.

I will also make it my mission to take the Kaalia player out before that first oppressive angel (Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Iona, Shield of Emeria) or dirty damn demon (Master of Cruelties, Archfiend of Depravity, Rune-Scarred Demon, Reiver Demon (with Avacyn out first, obviously), Sire Of Insanity, Etc..) or disgusting dragon (Steel Hellkite, Utvara Hellkite, Moonveil Dragon, Etc..)

I hate you for even contemplating building this bullshit deck...

Part of the problem of Abhorrent Overlord is you think you get more out of him than you do. You can guarantee only 2 harpies with his devotion. So lets say your in game and already have a lot of devotion; like you have an Underworld Connections, and even a Reiver Demon in play (6 devotion not counting Abhorrent or the shadowborns you are sacking to get it).--Here's the thing when you pay 7 mana or sac a bunch of clerics, you want value. While 9 dudes total sounds great; it will be board wiped away (because no one wants you to have that many fliers) or you will win because of big demons (not black thopers). This is not going to happen a lot, so usually you would get even less value than our ideal 8 harpies.---I like the deck for its Shirei and Shadowborn abuse: you get big demons every turn because all the removal is eaten by demons protecting Shirei. With a flying 6/6 out with no relevant text (drawing, sacing, extra mana, or tutoring) I'm gonna remove your general instead and set you back 2 turns.-----That was a lot, I'm sorry. I don't think you should run the card.
