What about Shadowborn Apostle? I don't think commander restricts her to only 1 card right? If you do end up adding apostle I'd recommend changing the commander to something that can bring her back easy like Athreos, God of Passage or Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker.

Yeah but my goal with Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker would be to run Shadowborn Apostle

Brutal_B thanks for the idea I'll definitely think about it.

SynergyBuild Thanks for the vote but Shadowborn Apostle being around 5$ where I live I highly doubt it's gonna be only 20$ ^^'.

I have to vote for since it is my favorite color. I would say if you go with rats use Rat Colony over Relentless Rats. The colony is easier to kill but its power grows for EVERY rat while relentless grows only for each other relentless. This makes a huge difference when you are running Marrow-Gnawer.

That said I would recommend Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker with the Shadowborn Apostles. This deck is a lot of fun and people really underestimate the versatility of demons. My Reaper Born is Athreos but you can see much of what you might want to include in the deck. And since you are mono- you have room for some of the things I don't like Coat of Arms which turns the clerics huge and the demons that are already big even bigger. Running Conspiracy is also interesting depending on the non-demons you play.

It is the best thing in the world to instantly summon up Archfiend of Depravity or Ob Nixilis, Unshackled.

So it's mono-colored weekend next week in my play group and I have to admit I've never built a mono-colored deck before.

I need help. I'm not sure which one of these to build.

My picks: Mono-Omnath, Locus of Mana, mostly gonna be a mana focused deck (token sub theme with Cryptolith Rite to boost the mana even more).

Mono-: Marrow-Gnawer,Relentless Rats and other rats (tribal deck)


Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker, Shadowborn Apostle/Demon beatdown sac deck (Similar to JLK's Athreos, God of Passage deck on gameknight for those who are familiar with the show)

Mono-: Neheb, the Eternal, Just red deck wheel/burn.

Mono-: Sram, Senior Edificer, Just a voltron deck.

No Mono-, I don't want to play a mono blue deck(I like blue when its mixed up with something else but the perspective of playing a mono-blue deck is just not appealing to me.)

Alright so tell me which one of these you would play and why :) oh and if you think of some sweet combos or just awesome cards (new or old/ expensive or cheap) don't hesitate to link it.

I don't think the deck wants to play a second Exsanguinate. Not every game is an Exsanguinate for the kill game and the games where you're not on that game plan it's a dead card. Also, every slot space is pretty limited because the deck is built around playing 38 Shadowborn Apostle. Thanks for the suggestion!

I'm pretty sure you can only play one Shadowborn Apostle, since the commander rules override its ability.
