You're looking for big black mana? Then look no further, suggestions have arrived!

Thespian's Stage - copy coffers or utility land

Mirage Mirror - same as above with even more utility, can also be used with Dark Depths Note: Vampire Hexmage does as well (and also gets rid of planeswalkers)

Nirkana Revenant - Big Black Mana

Bitterblossom - Defense against fliers, sac fodder for commander and works with Contamination

Reassembling Skeleton - Same as above (excluding flying)

Torment of Hailfire - Amazing X spell

Disciple of Bolas - Card draw and life gain (to mitigate life loss that's common with black). also works as a one time use sac outlet

Ophiomancer - token producers are key for sidisi, also helps against stompy

Ghoulcaller Gisa - Sac outlet, token generator, seems solid

Kokusho, the Evening Star - Sac target, defense against flying, lifegain

Beseech the Queen - You are mono black so TUTORS ARE A MUST!!!!

Yawgmoth's Will - Ultimate recursion

Victimize - Synergy with token generators

Cards for fun...for you and the whole fami....JUST FUN FOR YOU!

Worst Fears - One time use, extreme potential

Mindslaver - Similar to above

Emrakul, the Promised End - My favorite out of the 3!

Oblivion Stone - You seem to have some cards to deal with blacks inability to deal with artifacts and enchantments. In case you feel you need more, you can add this or Nevinyrral's Disk. All the suggestions I have made could go into your 10 card wishboard (playgroup permitting)

Soul Conduit - THINK NECROPOTENCE!!!

Trading Post - Synergize with spine of ish shah, token producer (think contamination or sidisi), sac outlet, and in a pinch can gain life (perhaps from getting attacked too much or necroed yourself too low)

No Mercy - Run it, no exception

Overall the deck seems solid, +1 from me. If you want me to recommend other cards, find cards to remove, or have any questions in general, please let me know. You have a combo in there or 2 so I can suggest actual combos that you might want to consider given that you have a tutor in the commandzone. If you want some other (mostly nonbudget) ideas, feel free to check out my deck The Descent Into Darkness

Just trying to keep things fresh by trying out some new cards and even bringing back some OG cards :D

Imp's Mischief - nobody ever sees it coming!

Soul Conduit - needs a big mana investment, so it's something you're preferably planning ahead for, but it's a crippling blow against someone if it goes off while potentially simultaneously bringing you back from the brink of death

Everflowing Chalice - can never go wrong with some good ramp

Basalt Monolith - combos with Rings + 2 additional mana - this is one of my best decks, so i expect it to downright competitive at the minimum, and if you go against combo decks, you need to run some of your own to win.

Necromancy - Animate Dead, but with flash, seems good.

Torment of Hailfire this card is just disgusting. I knew I would find a slot for it the day i say it spoiled.

Bitter Ordeal - an oldie, but a goodie

Agent of Erebos - there's quite a bit of gy interaction in my meta, and this guy is an absolute boss for taking care of that

Myojin of Night's Reach - a fan favorite making a return

I don't remember what I took out in most cases because these changes were done over time and I just wasn't documenting them XD

He_Who_Hungers on lord of the jank :)

Exactly the type of list I'd be planning to make with Mairsil... Mostly here looking for inspiration, and will probably dig into some things from this.

Here's some of my jank for you.- Helldozer because Wizards kind of directly told us they wanted us to play Non-basic land removal with Ixalan.

  • Mirage Mirror because it is always nice to turn into a Mountain when Wrath of God is raging.

  • Deadeye Tracker because Mairsil hates every graveyard that isn't your own. No, wait, even your own. We want things in cages, not in graves.

  • Dark Impostor because getting rid of things is good. Unfortunately it doesn't copy its static ability, which would've been even better.

  • Syndicate Trafficker because, well, you're going to have that artifact in your graveyard in order to exile it with Mairsil anyway. Hey look there's Wrath of God again. Hi, Wrath of God!

  • Captivating Crew because it's always nice to look for some mates.

  • Soul Conduit because we take what we want. Sometimes, what we want is peoples' lives.

  • Grimoire of the Dead because Wizards like to read. Then kill themselves and come back with some friends.

  • Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang because becoming a dragon seems like a thing a wizard would do. Also if you don't want to become a dragon, you can stab people with it.

  • Hisoka, Minamo Sensei because you might as well throw those expensive card into your 'yard before you put them in a cage. And if you get to counter something with it, so much the better.

  • Xathrid Slyblade because we are fine with losing hexproof if we don't have hexproof. Be careful when using it with Swiftfoot Boots though.

  • Honor-Worn Shaku I have not quite found a use for yet. But if you find something which gets a kick out of Mairsil tapping or untapping, this will be your combopiece. Thought I'd throw it in.

You can hopefully tell Mairsil makes me very happy.

He_Who_Hungers on Mairsil, the Party Pooper

Cool list. Looking to make my own Mairsil list and will probably take some inspiration from this one. Here's some of my own ideas:

  • Helldozer because Wizards kind of directly told us they wanted us to play Non-basic land removal with Ixalan.

  • Deadeye Tracker because Mairsil hates every graveyard that isn't your own. No, wait, even your own. We want things in cages, not in graves.

  • Dark Impostor because getting rid of things is good. Unfortunately it doesn't copy its static ability, which would've been even better.

  • Syndicate Trafficker because, well, you're going to have that artifact in your graveyard in order to exile it with Mairsil anyway. Might as well make him a tough boy for a turn.

  • Captivating Crew because it's always nice to look for some mates.

  • Soul Conduit because we take what we want. Sometimes, what we want is peoples' lives.

  • Grimoire of the Dead because Wizards like to read. Then kill themselves and come back with some friends.

  • Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang ticks the same box as some of the cards you already have included. But becoming a dragon seems like a thing a wizard would do. Also if you don't want to become a dragon, you can stab people with it. You can't stab people with an Argent Sphinx.

  • Hisoka, Minamo Sensei or Kozilek, the Great Distortion because you might as well throw those expensive card into your 'yard before you put them in a cage. And if you get to counter something with it, so much the better.

  • Xathrid Slyblade, because we can suffer losing hexproof if we don't have hexproof anyway.

Awesome list! Just starting out on my own Mairsil list, if you want I can drop you a link to it when I have a list up (haven't created the deck yet at the moment of writing). Mostly here looking for inspiration. There's some great ideas in yours!I'll leave you with some of my own ideas:

  • Helldozer because Wizards kind of directly told us they wanted us to play Non-basic land removal with Ixalan.

  • Mirage Mirror because it is always nice to turn into a Mountain when Wrath of God is raging.

  • Deadeye Tracker because Mairsil hates every graveyard that isn't your own. No, wait, even your own. We want things in cages, not in graves.

  • Dark Impostor because getting rid of things is good. Unfortunately it doesn't copy its static ability, which would've been even better.

  • Sakashima the Impostor because Mairsil doesn't have any friends, so we need another one so he can be his own friend.

  • Syndicate Trafficker because, well, you're going to have that artifact in your graveyard in order to exile it with Mairsil anyway. Hey look there's Wrath of God again. Hi, Wrath of God!

  • Captivating Crew because it's always nice to look for some mates.

  • Soul Conduit because we take what we want. Sometimes, what we want is peoples' lives.

  • Grimoire of the Dead because Wizards like to read. Then kill themselves and come back with some friends.

  • Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang ticks the same box as some of the cards you already have included. But becoming a dragon seems like a thing a wizard would do. Also if you don't want to become a dragon, you can stab people with it. You can't stab people with an Argent Sphinx.

You can hopefully tell Mairsil makes me very happy.

Fair point! To that end you may wish to consider Reverse the Sands. While not as cheap as Magus of the Mirror or Axis of Mortality to cast, it does allow for you to switch totals and attack without giving away your plan or giving your opponents time to respond, where as Magus would require Lightning Greaves to be in play to achieve this. Soul Conduit can do this, but for 4 more mana.

Karten, die ich aus deiner aktuellen Liste raus nehmen wrde:

Fledgling Djinn warum ist der in dem Deck? Der macht berhaupt keinen Sinn und ist einfach nur schlecht. (Du willst mit deinen Karten ja kontrolliert dien Leben ausgeben knnen und dich nicht unkontrolliert langsam ausbluten lassen.)

Glory-Bound Initiate der ist auch einfach nur schlecht. Alle zwei Runden mit einer 4/4 Lebensverknpfugn angreifen zu knnen ist nicht gut. Da gibt es tausend mal besseres. Auf jeden Fall raus.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal der ist ok, aber du hast nicht so wirklich viele Kreaturen, die so richtig profitieren wrden. (Geil wre natrlich schon, wenn Serra Avatar oder Minion of the Wastes auf einmal lifelink und fliegend htten, aber das wird so selten klappen und fr die paar dicken kreaturen, gibt es auch sicher besser Alternativen ihnen lifelink und/oder evasion zu geben. (z.B. Loxodon Warhammer)

Paladin of Atonement der ist schwach, wird nur langsam weniger schwach und gibt dann vielleicht (zurck auf die Hand oder Exil...) einmalig ein bisschen Leben. Nicht gut genug.

Personal Incarnation da du nicht kontrollieren kannst, wann du die Hlfte deines Lebens verlierst, ist der extrem scheie. Auf jeden Fall raus.

Purity Der tut einfach berhaupt nichts. 1. Es verhindert nur Schaden, der dir von einer Fhigkeit oder einem Zauberspruch zugefgt werden (z.B. von Lava Axe oder Vulshok Sorcerer), was halt eh keiner von uns spielt. 2. Es verhindert nur Schaden und nicht Lebenspunkteverlust. Da ist ein Unterschied. Schaden fhrt zu Lebenspunkteverlust, es gibt aber auch Karten, die direkt Leben verlieren lassen und gegen solche Karten (also so ziemlich alles was du spielst) schtzt Purity halt nicht. Entsprechend ist die nutzlos und kann raus.

Convalescent Care ist total nutzlos. Sie hat einfach die Fhigkeit niemals etwas zu tun. Geil. Und wenn du mal unter 5 Leben bist, ziehst du einmalig eine einzige Karte und kriegst einen nicht erwhnenswerten Haufen Leben. Weg damit.

Dark Tutelage an sich lustig, aber du hast viel bessere Karten fr Carddraw und auerdem ist unkontrollierter Lebenspunkteverlust auch nicht gewnscht. (mal zieht sie dir 0 und mal 10 Leben und du kannst es nicht beeinflussen. das ist zu random.) Auerdem sehen deine Gegner was du ziehst. Die wrde ich auch auf jeden Fall rausnehmen.

Phyrexian Unlife totaler Bldsinn. gibt dir quasi einfach nur 10 Leben, die auch mit einem einfachen Removal genommen werden knnen. Du wolltest die vermutlich haben, damit du dann unendlich viel Leben bezahlen kannst, aber das klappt leider nicht. Ich habe noch mal die Regelung nachgeschlagen: If youre at 0 or less life, you cant pay any amount of life except 0. Also auf jeden Fall weg mit dem Mll.

Godless Shrine hey du rich bitch, die ist vieeel zu teuer! Unbedingt auf Geld achten. Besonders bei einem nur zweifarbigen Deck sollte das mit der Landbase ja kein Problem darstellen.

Ulcerate das ist einfach viel viel viel zu schwach. Kartenplatzverschwendung. Auf jeden Fall raus.

Exquisite Blood die ist vieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel zu teuer!!!

Noch weitere Kartenvorschlge, die mir gestern einfach noch nicht eingefallen waren:

Mortify, Crawlspace, Ghostly Prison, Vedalken Orrery, Utter End, Unmake und Brutal Hordechief (der wre zumindest nett, wenn du tatschlich Boros Reckoner, Spitemare und Stuffy Doll behalten solltest, obwohl die nicht direkt etwas mit dem Deck zu tun haben).

Interessante Synergien:

Exquisite Archangel mit Minion of the Wastes oder Pain's Reward oder Hatred, oder Necrologia, oder Plague of Vermin oder Phyrexian Processor damit du eine beliebig groe Anzahl an Leben fr diese Karten bezahlen kannst.

Exquisite Archangel mit Tainted Sigil zusammen mit irgendeiner Karte mit der du beliebig viel Leben bezahlen kannst, wie z.B. Wall of Blood, damit du mit mindestens 40 Leben mehr als zuvor endest (und den Effekt der dritten Karte quasi kostenlos ziemlich oft nutzen konntest).

Tainted Remedy und Beacon of Immortality oder Magus of the Mirror oder Axis of Mortality oder Reverse the Sands oder Soul Conduit oder Arbiter of Knollridge, damit du einen oder mehrere Gegner auf der Stelle killst oder ihnen zumindest sehr sehr sehr viel Leben abziehst.

Du merkst schon, dass du mehrer spalose, asoziale Kombos hast und ich wrde daher folgendes vorschlagen:

  1. Spiel nicht Tainted Remedy, da die fast ausschlielich nur fr Instakills benutzt wird. Also sie hat entweder keinen Effekt oder killt einen Gegner sofort, was absolut lame ist.

  2. Wenn du Exquisite Archangel und eine der "bezahle beliebig viel Leben"-Karten hast, darfst du nur doppelt so viel wie dein Startleben oder dein derzeitiges Leben bezahlen, je nachdem was hher ist. Ansonsten knntest du damit unendlich/unendlich Kreaturen oder unendlich 1/1 Kreaturen erzeugen oder andere spalose Effekte machen.
