Black is my favorite color by far! I also play U/B control and Sidisi Whip.
First off, when I first built the deck it was a bit different. The core was there grim guargian + stab wound + fate unraveler, but the deck was more aggro with Gnarled Scarhide and Master of the Feast. It also ran no removal but instead had Crippling Blight and Cast into Darkness. How the deck played out was very dependent on how ''on curve'' I would be. One thing I concluded after playing the deck is that what won me games was Stab Wound, and that what cost me games were unchecked planeswalkers.
I did not bring it to an ''FNM''. However three of my friends and I organized our own ''FNM'' which had 4 boosters for the winner. I played against G/R monsters, Abzan Midrange and Mardu Midrange. We played more than 3 best of 3s so I ended up playing twice against some matchups. The win rate was pretty much 50% to be honest. I won 3 best of 3s out of 6, and the ones I lost were 2-1! I closed 2 games with Sign in Blood, that was hilarious! I even managed to deal 10 damage without attacking (something like Gray Merchant of Asphodel into Fate Unraveler
Sign in Blood
into Fate Unraveler and Stab Wound upkeep)!
I'm seriously thinking about bringing it to FNM this week and see how it goes with my new build. Stab Wound? Sign in Blood finisher? Who's this Grim Guardian common guy? Priceless.
