Sheoldred, Whispering One Discussion
10 hours ago
if you're going for art/flavor, I love adding To the Slaughter for removal
is Sheoldred, Whispering One too unfun for your playgroup?
Cruel Ultimatum seems fun, for you at least. lol grixis so hard to find budget fun options for

Fair enough, we definitely have different play groups I think. I can't rely on creatures survival nearly as much since a wipe comes out every time anyone's board gets out of control. I like Sengir Autocrats because it fits the curve allowing you 4 things to sac the turn after you play yahenni. 4 creatures for 4 mana is extremely efficient.
One more thing I'd like to add. I saw you are planning on picking up a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Sheoldred, Whispering One next. I bought both but Tbh sheoldred sits in my binder mostly because she draws so much hate and Mikaeus is great but once he's out everyone expects a Triskelion, Workhorse or some other combo. I know your playgroup may play less removal so this may not apply to you but Bitterblossom draws less hate, is harder to deal with and literally goes in any deck with black in it. I use it a lot more and I'd suggest if you're spending 20 dollars on a black staple start there. Just my 2 cents.

I'm not a fan of Liliana, the Last Hope, though. I don't think she's strong enough in commander. Her +1 is marginal removal in a format of sturdy creatures, her -2 is passable but I have better ways to recur things, and her -7 is both infeasible and subpar for a planeswalker ult (IMO).
Happy deckbuilding! :)

Kevaka Thanks for the input. I am slowing coming to that realization. Crypt Ghast is more often than not a 4 cmc top deck that I don't need. Very rarely is he actually there early enough to make a difference. He also doesn't do anything when he ETB and is likely blown up next turn. I love the idea of Bloodghast. $$ But really works well with the amount of land drops and Liliana of the Dark Realms (+1) ability. Demigod of Revenge could take the place of Sheoldred, Whispering One at the top of the curve with Gray Merchant of Asphodel. I guess I would need to run at least two of Demigod in order to make its relevant.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Sheoldred, Whispering One are the next two big cards I'm getting, as they are great in this deck and are some of the best mono-black EDH cards. Until then, Cauldron of Souls looks good. I do like the look of that Skirsdag High Priest, because free(ish) 5/5 flyers every turn seems good. I had Magus of the Abyss in here, but it was one of the last cuts I made so I could playtest on Untap, on the reasoning that it does kill my own stuff evenly, even if it's still great. Once I add more token producers, it'll probably make it's way back in here. I like infinite combos, but feel Nim Deathmantle isn't great without a Grave Titan. I'll put that in once Gary and Overlord find a way in. I don't like the cockroaches because paying 3 mana a turn for an indestructible yahenni doesn't sound exciting.
Once again, thanks for all the help! But now I need to cut more cards...

Yeah no problem dude! I run a Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck that loves to take advantage of things dying and some of the cards I have found to be all stars in that sort of thing that you should be able to take advantage of are Reassembling Skeleton (best skeleton), Sheoldred, Whispering One, and maybe Skirsdag High Priest? You could also make use of Army of the Damned as you put out so much mana. I think that you'd be wanting to be casting creatures more often than you are to make use of Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder.

So far I think they biggest problem you're gonna have is board wipes. If you can keep the army out they'll do work but if you get threatening we just need a wrath effect.
Saskia shares this problem of board-wipes fizzling me out. In her list I run a mix of 10ish recursion/indestructible and it feels like the sweet spot for it. I'd recommend about the same.
Cards that I feel are a must are:
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets - same as lili. devistating with the skate but boasts some bounce protection and a scry/draw.
Rishkar, Peema Renegade - gives some serious synergy with your outlast peeps as well as providing some serious ramp
Winding Constrictor - literally made for the deck. comes out just after commander 2016 release? suspicious....
Oath of Ajani - see above, MADE FOR THE DECK

Angel of Despair can help with the land control / destruction as well.
Love the Sheoldred, Whispering One in here. Quite fun!
