Thanks for your advice, xaarvaxus!

Yeah, I feel like Demon's Horn will lose its usefulness quite soon. Same goes for Pristine Talisman . About Basilica Screecher -- true, it's not super helpful, especially since the generic mana in its cost makes it impossible to cast for "free".

The cards I feel like cutting in the near future (apart from the ones I mentioned above) are Harvester of Souls , and probably Lotus Bloom (still on the fence about it and the same goes for Chrome Mox ), and Vampiric Link since I don't have enough demons to make it reliably worth it (and by demons I mean big creatures that I can stick the link on and be happy with it). Obviously, Necropotence and Yawgmoth's Will are auto-includes. I just haven't ordered them yet. I'd love to be able to stick Sheoldred, Whispering One somewhere. but I'm getting pretty short on space.

Gate to Phyrexia is an expensive card, yeah, but there's no replacement for it in black and artifacts are obviously a big part of EDH. No generic mana in the cost is also a big plus. I'm just having trouble with staying within the 100 card limit :D

Oh, and I guess Exquisite Blood is another one of those must-have cards for K'rrik.

Big thanks for your input!

Yeah for sure! I fully agree that Sorin is a solid card, but the only thing good about him in this build is the fact he pumps out 2/2s, which is okay, except you have so many token generators, I actually think he's too slow to fit in the build, especially when you have cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion , who you will be casting fairly early in game. The only upside to some of the token generators is Sorin, Solemn Visitor pumps a 2/2 but that is'nt relevant at all in commander. His +1 isn't very relevant, as the lifelink can be good but I doubt it'll win you many games. His ult is fine, but I don't see it being very good if you aren't going to win by combat. However, there is some utility in it, but I would just add a Sheoldred, Whispering One because most players will kill sorin before he can ever get off his ult.

Don't take my suggestion as a "GET THAT S*** outta here!" rather what it is, a suggestion. I also appreciate you taking the time out of your day to consider my suggestions =}

We would add Impact Tremors (maybe replace Blood Artist as that card only targets single opponents). Some great token generators we are missing would be Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Mycoloth and Krenko, Mob Boss . Some graveyard interaction would not hurt either. Cards that come to mind are Hua Tuo, Honored Physician , Feldon of the Third Path , Meren of Clan Nel Toth , Mimic Vat and Sheoldred, Whispering One .

Happy brewing!

Bit old to respond to but I'm running a Beckett brass deck also, may i suggest Sheoldred, Whispering One combo with It That Betrays

If you're gonna run Counterbalance , Sensei's Divining Top for sure. Spin the top in response to the counterbalance trigger, rearrange your cards to find correct CMC, then counter a spell pretty reliably

Probably cut Isochron Scepter , don't think it does enough. It hits Counterspell , Cyclonic Rift , and Lim-Dul's Vault . It also hits Enlightened Tutor , but who cares you're already finding enchantments with Zur. Probably the only good card to hit is Silence which just reads "Pay : Opponent can't play Magic", but only in a 2 player game. In 3+ players, it just picks on one player, which could be good, but I don't think that's what control is getting at.

Rings of Brighthearth does actual nothing besides making mana with Basalt Monolith , but even mana in this deck does nothing

Don't think Sheoldred, Whispering One does much apart from sacrifice for opponents. While powerful, her first ability doesn't do much. You could play Dictate of Erebos or, for cheaper, Attrition or Grave Pact . They all pretty much do the same things, but your creatures do have to die. However, you could play Bitterblossom (In place of your Rings of Brighthearth for example) to make creatures that can not only attack, but be fuel for a sac fire

If you want to get more Tax / Stax -y you could play Rest in Peace over one of your do-nothing unblockable things cough Aether Tunnel Cough

Throw in some card advantage with Necropotence but also some card disadvantage with Helm of the Ghastlord . It's not 3 mana, but by god does it do wonders for hand sizes and for commander damage
