JeranF on Mono-Black Control Commander

@Katscratch I'm still very unsure on many cards, if they're actually good or just not suited for commander. I see the use of Gravecrawler but would probably switch him out with Reassembling Skeleton. It may be more expensive, but bringing it back does not require something else but mana. Sadistic Hypnotist and Blood Artist might work well in that combination.

Right now I feel a lot of your cards just don't do enough for a commander game, for example Typhoid Rats. With way this deck looks like it's shaping out, a sac package with Gravecrawler, Sadistic Hypnotist, Pitiless Plunderer and Ashnod's Altar, along with Blood Artist effects could work really nicely.

Nice deck! You might consider some haste-enablers such as Anger, Bloodsworn Steward, Xenagos, God of Revels, Fervor, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, Lightning Greaves, or Fires of Yavimaya to get huge amounts of burst damage with Prossh and OTK opponents out of nowhere. Also with the amount of tokens you generate, cards that have synergy with armies of tokens (e.g. Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, Harvest Season, and Second Harvest) could be very effective, especially if you area able to curve out with Parallel Lives or Doubling Season into Prossh the next turn. Also, cards that can turn your many tokens into mana could have a lot of potential as well. You've already included Cryptolith Rite and Growing Rites of Itlimoc , but the addition of Ashnod's Altar, Thermopod, Pawn of Ulamog Cards like Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Heroic Intervention, Damnation, Crux of Fate, Sylvan Library, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor could provide the the deck with additional consistency, utility, and power. If you wnt to add another mana-doubling card, Mana Reflection would fill that role. It looks as if you have a bit of a 'sacrifice stuff' subtheme as well, so more cards to add for that could be Barter in Blood, Birthing Pod, Blood Divination Attrition, Awakening Zone, Bloodspore Thrinax, Disciple of Bolas, Eliminate the Competition, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sadistic Hypnotist, Goblin Bombardment, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Other considerations might be Sprouting Thrinax, Goblin Sharpshooter, Atarka, World Render, Grave Titan, Oracle of Mul Daya, Dragonlair Spider, Stalking Vengeance, Tempt with Vengeance, Xenagos, the Reveler, Poison-Tip Archer, Avenger of Zendikar, Fecundity, and Pitiless Plunderer. Those are just a few suggestions, and good luck with the deck!

Well, love the new updates that make it so I can't use the site how I'd like to, but hope they work for someone.

Anyway, a long time update finally made, but still trying to see if I can make room for Sadistic Hypnotist, Nature's Resurgence, or Vessel of Nascency

I have several suggestions...

Metallic Mimic - Abuse those etb/death triggers on everyone's turn instead of once per round. It doesn't need a lot of creatures of the same type... i.e. name zombie and sac Gary over and over. If you add this, I'd replace Merciless Executioner with his zombie twin Fleshbag Marauder.

Spellskite - You can redirect the same spell/ability on the stack to set your life where you need it... and using it normally is great too.

Toxic Deluge/Last One Standing - Cheap boardwipes are good here. Deluge is obviously a nice way to get off the throne too. Also consider Jokulhaups.

Spellseeker - Search your library for target Cyclonic Rift lol. Also consider Imperial Recruiter.

Ogre Battledriver/Urabrask the Hidden/Hall of the Bandit Lord - Haste is huge with Marchesa and you're lacking here...

Sadistic Hypnotist - Discard seals games.

Goblin Bombardment - Excellent sac outlet here and you can always hit yourself to get off the throne.

Cards I'd cut:

Dreadbore - unless you've got superfriends decks you face consistently.

Decree of Pain - Jokulhaups is better here and has a cheaper cmc. You don't need extra cards when you just win.

Unstable Obelisk - I know enchantments are a pain but wow this effect is expensive.

Liliana of the Veil is usually considered the budgetless version of Necrogen mists, but it’s also a pretty big target. I’m not sure how competitive Geth's Grimoire is but drawing off everyone’s discard is always nice.

If mill is a big strategy, then I’d highly suggest Helm of Obedience and Leyline of the Void.

I’m also noticing Mike and Trike as a wincon. If you wanted a more on theme win (permanent destruction) maybe try The Gitrog Monster, with Dakmor Salvage and Skirge Familiar. And maybe incorporate some extra lands for turn spells like Exploration?

Tendershoot’s here for token-fodder, I’m guessing? You could also use Sadistic Hypnotist for more discards.

Tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal and maybe Cruel Tutor or Grim Tutor will help find anything you need.

I’d also replace Zhur-ta Druid with Birds of Paradise
