Sign in Blood Discussion

Snap157 on Do you like your hand?

In a word: spicy.

Consider swapping a swamp for an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to maximize your Cabal Coffers, and adding in Geier Reach Sanitarium would play into your discard theme. I would replace Fabled Passage with it.

Feed the Swarm is a new piece of tech to answer enchantments for black, and Withering Boon comes legitimately out of nowhere.

It seems like you need more repeatable ramp. Maybe consider Jet Medallion, Arcane Signet, Worn Powerstone, Prismatic Lens, Mind Stone, and Wayfarer's Bauble?

While your commander also give your cards, I would still get up to ten sources of card draw. For a repeatable discard engine, I would suggest Phyrexian Arena, Sign in Blood, Read the Bones, and Night's Whisper and the king of all black card draw, Necropotence. Necro might not play nice with your own discard, but I don't think you rely on reanimation enough for it to be an issue.

I really like this deck and hope this helps! +1

Ok, so card draw sources in your colors. Repeatable: Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, Castle Locthwain, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip

One off/etb: Syphon Mind (really shines in multiplayer), Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Champion of Dusk (pairs well with your vampire theme).

If you want to drop a bit more money, Sensei's Divining Top

No Infect deck, even in legacy if I'm mistaken, runs a lot of creatures. First because there's no point. Infect decks are not meant to fill the board and overwhelm the opponent. Instead, at least in this version, the idea is to control the game via discard and removal to allow my creatures to get through. Second, they would just make the deck clunky, especially in black where there isn't a whole lot of "useful" creatures like green has. And last, there's plenty of discard to make sure my opponents don't have enough removal for my creatures.

I also know the deck is weak against burn, it's one of the main weaknesses. That's why I opted to run Mazemind Tome instead of the regular Sign in Blood type cards. Collective Brutality is also meant to help since it kills stuff like Goblin Guide and Monastery Swiftspear while also being able to gain me life and potentially discarding a burn spell. However, just to make sure, I added two copies of Dragon's Claw to the sideboard to ensure I have a better chance against one of my worst matchups.

Apollo_Paladin, these are all great suggestions, thank you! I definitely will add Sudden Spoiling and Extirpate to the sidedeck, they would be super useful against a few of my friends decks lol. Night's Whisper is chill but the two black mana for Sign in Blood usually isnt a problem for me though and I have a ton of the card on hand so I might just keep that as is. Whip of Erebos is a super good idea, I'll play around with it and see where it fits in. Thank you for all the card suggestions!

Also, I see Sign in Blood on your Maybeboard...if you're looking for card draw in a Dual color deck, you should use Night's Whisper instead. Sign is really only useful for mono-black imo.

I don't think that Whisper only affecting you is an issue, your deck doesn't look set up to be forcing the opponent to draw haha...otherwise they're identical.

In response to your question about card draws:

Night's Whisper is probably the best card draw option you can get for a dual-color deck with Black. There's Sign in Blood as well, but that requires 2 Black to cast.

If you don't mind (or want to work in synergy with) a sacrifice mechanic, there's other options there as well including (not limited to): Altar's Reap, Bankrupt in Blood, Costly Plunder

Things like Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, Prismatic Lens, Fractured Powerstone, Worn Powerstone, Wayfarer's Bauble, Talisman of Dominance, Dimir Signet, Arcane Signet, Thought Vessel, and Mind Stone would make a great ramp package here. I know you already have some here but I would take out Mirrorpool, Ravenous Chupacabra, Rise of the Dark Realms, Thassa's Oracle (if you dont have a way to instantly mill yourself), Conjurer's Closet, Sire of Stagnation and Crush of Tentacles. These are your lower impact higher cmc cards, and this will lower your average cmc so your deck will run smoother.

Additionally, I feel like there are some draw staples that are missing, such as Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, Visions of Beyond (if you lean into the mill strat), Sign in Blood/Night's Whisper, and things like Brainstorm, Preordain, Ponder, and Read the Bones. Think about the higher cmc in your advantage section to replace for a few of these, I usually shoot for 10. hope this helps!
