griffstick on "My" Top 10 mono black ...

16 hours ago

Ok so Josh and Jimmy from the command zone made an episode of top 10 black and top 10 green very recently. Here's the link to the episode, click here. I want to make a similar list with a twist, using only cards with cmc 6 or greater to make this list. (Excluding cards with X in it's cost, "X" doesn't count here). If this is successful I will do every mono color for cards 6 cmc or greater. Btw I'm not bashing the command zone at all I'm a huge fan. (This list will be budget as well) no cards over 20$ US dollars... maybe

So here goes "my" top 10 mono black edh cards with total cmc 6 or greater. With 1 being the best.

All the rest after the are honorable mentions

Every card mentioned above in the top ten are based off my gameplay exp in my kitchen table metta.

I want everyone's feed back on the order, and what cards you think should make the list, and cards I missed.

Metroid_Hybrid on Need a new Mono-Black Commander..

4 days ago

So, a while back I had built my first EDH deck around Horobi, Death's Wail.. As I expected, if left alone I could take over the game, but instead I seem to only draw hate.. So now I'm looking to switch Horobi out for something a little less "cute", and hopefully without having to completely change my current list (aside from Horobi-specific tech, of course)..

Here the deck I'm working with..

Darth Horobi, Sith Lord

Commander / EDH Metroid_Hybrid


Here's the list of potential Mono-Black Commanders that I currently own, and therefore to choose from.. My "Top-3" are listed first, the rest are in no particular order..

The general goal here is to have a definitive Mono-Black deck that can survive at least a moderate amount of hate, and without being too cheesy in the process..

whatskraken on Can one creature be sacrificed ...

If have Curse of the Cabal suspended and Sheoldred, Whispering One on the battlefield, can my opponent sacrifice one creature to satisfy both cards?

Spirits on Another Big Dumb Kaalia Deck

6 days ago

Hey nice initial build, +1, fellow Kaalia of the Vast player, Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

You should include a secondary win-con into the deck, the standard Kaalia of the Vast is Crucible of Worlds + Armageddon + Ravages of War + Command Beacon + Strip Mine + Wasteland. Others are Worldgorger Dragon and/or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker which is the one I play. It's too hard to deal 40 damage to all 3 players, especially with your board position, it pulls attention of the other decks, even though the others may be driving toward their win-con combos.

Dragon Tempest has been really nice, CMC 2 Haste which is what Kaalia of the Vast needs, even more than protection. Without haste it will be a tough go.

Mother of Runes is a nice cheap re-usable protection as well.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is awesome, miss Phyrexia/Innistrad, but she isn't an A/D/D so tough to cast her. She will be too slow, albeit very controlling.

You have Brave the Sands use Angelic Field Marshal spot for something else. Maybe an Exquisite Archangel to hit the reset life button, or a Baneslayer Angel to lifelink who can be cast without Kaalia of the Vast, maybe Angelic Arbiter/Linvala, Keeper of Silence if you like the control aspect, or a Grand Abolisher which protect Kaalia of the Vast during your turn, which especially combos nice with the Haste.

I think Sheoldred, Whispering One again is someone that's not working with your overall game plan. The Praetors are way too awesome, but they are going to be far too slow for what you need to accomplish with Kaalia of the Vasts bar-brawl style of aggro play.

Sword of Feast and Famine works good with Hellkite Charger or an Aggravated Assault.

Steelshaper's Gift can pull a Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots which is better than a Hammer of Purphoros.

Citadel Siege is a little slow, your guys are already pretty big, not sure it's worth the 1 blocker tap-down.

Really cool, love Kaalia of the Vast, the mana will take a while but slowly work on it. Cheers.

rwking082 on Crosis Mill WIP

I'll recommend Sphinx's Tutelage, Bloodchief Ascension, Crypt Incursion, Bojuka Bog, and Lazav, Dimir Mastermind.

Sphinx's Tutelage gives you a passive mill engine that's fueled by card draw, giving each draw much more value. This will devour mono-colored decks if played early.

Bloodchief Ascension combos with your Mindcrank. Combined with Mindcrank, you have infinite mill and life gain whenever one card enters an opponent's graveyard. Generally useful anyway because any mill spell can become a win.

Crypt Incursion and Bojuka Bog give you a way to deal with pesky graveyards. (Mill will always have opponents with massive graveyards.) Crypt Incursion is instant speed, wipes all creatures, and gives you some life to boot. Make Sheoldred, Whispering One half as scary.

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind gives you some value off of mill. If one of your opponents' creatures goes into the graveyard (mill, discard, or removal), you get a strictly-better version of that creature. Other cards to consider in using your opponents' graveyards is Beacon of Unrest and Rise of the Dark Realms.

I made a mill deck a while back --> Lazav, Dimir Mastermind. This might have some other useful things.

UnleashedHavok on Alesha, Who Luls at Death

1 week ago

You are most welcome Rikente! I really like Alesha, and love talking with other people who play her.

I feel like my list is different from most others I have seen in that I have several big creatures (I also play a ton of control). Enter Doomed Necromancer. I like him because he does not check for power/toughness, so I can cheat in my titans, my Rune-Scarred Demon, or if I really want to be a dick my Sheoldred, Whispering One. And I normally have Anger in the graveyard. So assuming I have the mana for it, I can play him and cheat out a fatty with a big effect same turn.

I actually did not think that Feldon of the Third Path was a good card when I first started playing Alesha. Man has my tune changed! He is an absolute rockstar in this list, especially since I run such an ETB heavy list. I think two of my favorite targets for him are my Rune-Scarred Demon, and Solemn Simulacrum......mmmmhhhhhh value town! With the demon I get a card, swing for 6 flying at their face, and he goes back to the yard just to do it again next turn. And for Solemn, I get a land and a draw in the same turn. Those are just my favorite two examples. Feldon runs amok in this kind of build, he's so powerful.

As for Gray Merchant of Asphodel, he is really just here as a combo piece if I run into someone that is doing those shenanigans. I cannot think of a game I have played where I dropped Gary for a large amount of life loss/gain for the win in one turn. My devotion to black is never that large. You do have a good amount of black creatures, but unless you are wanting to use him as a combo kill, I don't think you would be pleased to see him in your list.

I like Stingscourger. At the beginning of the game, he is a huge nuisance bouncing an opponent's creature back to their hand. He then kindly kills himself so you can keep denying your friends of that creature they want to play, forcing them to use mana they may want for something else. I'm really happy to see him in my opening hand. Then in the late game, you could use him to combo off sending all the opponent creatures back to hands although at that point in the game I would probably be going for the throat.

I actually used to run both Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and wound up swapping them out for other cards. I feel like they are both good cards, but too low impact in a format where; the game draws out so your opponent will have enough mana that paying one more will not really affect them, and you are banking on the bottom card of your library being a creature. I was also running into an issue where Grenzo was putting my removal spells into my yard, I did not like that. They are good, fun cards but I feel that Thalia is better in another format and Grenzo would be better in a different type of deck.

One quick thing... This deck is not EDH legal. All cards in your deck must follow your commander's colour identity. Sheoldred, Whispering One is mono-Black. As such, you cannot have Green in your deck.

Beyond that, you need ways to get cards into the graveyard, so Sheoldred can bring them out.

Buried Alive and Entomb for example. Bog Witch and Putrid Imp help get cards from your hand to your graveyard. You should also search for draw+discard effects.

Reanimate, Animate Dead, and many other cards allow you to resurrect your creatures when Sheoldred is not on the battlefield.

total_euphoria on There and Back Again

I can certainly appreciate that as every deck I make is about flavour :) In that case Dungrove Elder is very foresty! And Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Sheoldred, Whispering One and Deathrite Shaman shouldn't really be in there. Yes, they are beasts in the right deck but has no relevance to your theme. If you really need pump then Door of Destinies and Coat of Arms will do the trick. The only problem you have is that elves by nature are strong providing you pack the entire deck out with them. As soon as you split with treefolk, they become less efficient. I suppose it depends on how competitive you want the deck to be? I personally would pack with treefolk to make doran more beneficial but make the bottom end all elves, which would help you to ramp into your beaters. Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania are your go to guys for the ramp and Joraga Warcaller will buff depending on how many elves you decide to put in.
