Surgical Extraction over Sadistic Sacrament, otherwise, sideboard looks solid assuming a unknown meta. +1

Thanks for the suggestion Madcookie!

I usually play with my friends, thus I don't need much graveyard hate, and it would hurt myself too, considering that I run cards like Mortivore as win conditions.

I didn't include counterspells because I already have a deck running some (here it is: Drag from the Future), though the combo you mentioned is pretty neat.

Since nobody in my playgroup runs Eldrazi Titans, I don't even have to bother about graveyard reshuffling (this explains the absence of cards like Sadistic Sacrament).

I found that the best way to beat cedh decks is to take the cards right out of their library with cards like Sadistic Sacrament and Praetor's Grasp effects. So for you since you're not in black. You should add Jester's Cap and Extract, you can remove their combo pieces from the game. Secondly you can run these two cards as well Bribery again taking something insane from their desk and using it to win yourself. And Acquire use this to grab something good like a Akroma's Memorial or a Blightsteel Colossus

@enpc thanks for the comment!

Interesting idea with Dark Petition since almost a quarter of the deck goes towards spell mastery. Will def consider it. I run Reclaim over Regrowth strictly for another Isochron Scepter target if need be.

Memnarch is crazy strong when paired with a lot of mana; but at the same time can be a dead card in hand or put a target on your back on the 'field. It's one of the three main wincons, treated similar to a Laboratory Maniac insta-win, but can still do work without infinite mana.

Aetherflux Reservoir again can win without infinites, but all the fetch/shock lands, mana rocks, and enchantments that cost life can hurtttt

I'm always looking for easy wincons. Just gotta be careful since I know ppl who run Sadistic Sacrament-style crap. I do play Walking Ballista in my animar deck hehe and it is real good.

Thanks again!

Yes I've built it several times. It's fun. But you need lots of mana for it to be fun. It's a tier 3 CMDR at best. You'll need lots of good ramp. Like mana doublers. Caged Sun, and Extraplanar Lens. You need to focus on what black does best when considering mana ramp. Cabal Coffers, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, and Crypt Ghast. utilize the fact that you'll be mono black so cards like. Nightmare Lash, Lashwrithe, and Strata Scythe. You need big finishers that use big mana. Exsanguinate, and Torment of Hailfire. You'll want to try to have a few ways to stay in control early. Royal Assassin creatures, and some deathtouch creatures. You'll be killing selected creatures so Mimic Vat it good here. You want to make your CMDR more effective, so you'll want Illusionist's Bracers, and Rings of Brighthearth to copy Kalitas's effect throw in Basalt Monolith to make infinite colorless mana when paired up with the Rings of Brighthearth. You'll want to have Grave Betrayal as well this pairs up well with Kalitas. You are gonna need Command Beacon because if and when Kalitas dies. It will be hard recasting her after she dies 1 or 2 times. And you can do a reanimation theme as well where you can pick from graves at will with cards like Animate Dead, Rise from the Grave, Rise of the Dark Realms, and Fated Return. You'll need your basic edh packages. The Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Burnished Hart, Gilded Lotus ramp package. About 4 board wipes. Decree of Pain, Archfiend of Depravity, Black Sun's Zenith, Mutilate. You'll need some other targeted removal and control. Withering Boon to stop etb effects that might threaten you, Imp's Mischief to redirect targeted spells. Sadistic Sacrament for the combo decks. And Praetor's Grasp for the same, or use it to grab a mana rock. Then throw in some strong combos that mono black does well. Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension or Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond. Along with a few other good ones. And some one shot heavy hitters. Like Sorin Markov, Tree of Perdition, and Blood Tribute. Follow the guidelines and you'll have a solid deck.

Hi Kalkin

To coin a phrase; "cardboard crack" has been used to describe Magic for a long time, another phrase is "pay to win", both have an element of truth but aren't the whole story. Modern prices are without a doubt a barrier to entry, but to a certain extent a playable card or a staple probably should cost more than a booster pack, since you are removing the random element, but not 10x the price. Now as it happens the top five of the most commonly played cards in modern are one drops in each of the colours; Lightning Bolt, Serum Visions, Path to Exile, Noble Hierarch and Thoughtseize, to my mind none of those cards should be over $10 and they should have been reprinted in every masters set, Wizards though didn't do that. In fact if you look at the top 50 played cards in modern, source: a fair few have only had 1 maybe 2 at most reprints.

Where I disagree with you slightly is singling out the mana base. New players think land is boring, they hate seeing a land in their rare slot. It is an important lesson that the lands you use are some of the most important cards in your deck, though again that lesson shouldn't be costing $20+.

As to your deck, I'd probably include Toshiro Umezawa and either Blackmail or Mire's Toll to let you target non-basic lands, since folk forget those discard spells don't have the non-land clause... Finally, I probably prefer Sadistic Sacrament to Praetor's Grasp, but not so much that I would recommend one over the other.

PvPArthur on MagicalHacker - List of All Pillow Fort Cards

@magicalhacker: Norn's Annex hurts, especially when you're being attacked by multiple creatures (2 damage per attacking creature), especially in token decks, which is what I come across a lot in my meta. I have people who like to make big swings in my meta, rather than doll out a little damage to everyone.

As for Charisma, it's a card that makes people thing twice, which is why I consider it a pillow-forting card.

As for milling, I play a lot of mill decks, and I tend to couple it with cards like Leyline of the Void, Sadistic Sacrament, Bojuka Bog, and Helm of Obedience.

Again, all of this is subjective depending on meta.

Just my 2 cents.

Funny you mentioned that I was facing a Korlash, Heir to Blackblade edh deck and I had Wall of Souls and Phyrexian Obliterator on the battlefield. He kinda forgot about obliterator's effect and had to sac 30 permanents XD Sadistic Sacrament is also hilarious
