It looks like you're going for some lifegain. If so, a playset of Ajani's Pridemate
would be great in here.
could be nice as well, since you can use the life you're gaining to hurt the opponent.
You spelled populate wrong :D
Generally, you might want to remove some of the stuff you have 2x or 1x, and get more 4x cards instead. Gameplay should be a lot more consistent then.
Since you have quite a lot of high-cost stuff (like the planeswalkers), i think you would benefit a lot from guys that tap for mana (like Llanowar Elves , Birds of Paradise , etc.). If you're running Crypt Ghast you should really consider getting a set of Overgrown Tomb (lol or Bayou ), since that counts as a swamp.
I think 4x Druid's Deliverance would be good here.
You don't need 1x Dark Ritual here. My opinion ritual is 4x or none, and only belongs in mono-black. Plus, this is not a super-aggro deck, so it will just screw you in terms of card advantage.
I would take out Ob Nixilis, Unshackled also; seems like he's not super-relevant to the theme here and he is expensive. I could maybe see him being useful in a sideboard for when you play against someone with a lot of shuffle effects (control decks or guys running fetches).
Also i think that Stab Wound is not that good in this deck, because the idea is to gain life and make the opponent lose that much with Sanguine Bond so it's better if i run cards that do both things. But thanks anyways.
If it's one or the other, Consume Spirit over Corrupt . You might also consider Stab Wound as a card to keep you in the game. Since you're running 6 removal cards, you might consider sideboarding Ultimate Price or Victim of Night for when you play other black decks or artifact decks. And you might look into more Extort cards like Basilica Screecher
Thank you very much, Boza, for this thorough suggestion. I'll definetly consider it. Some of the cards I didn't even know existed. Pillory of the Sleepless is for me an obvious replacement for Stab Wound .
What are all of the cards like Stab Wound i.e. cards that deal damage to the opponent(s) at the beginning.
Hah! Finally someone's playing the same thing! +1 for that! :)
My suggestions for you, made of experiences with playing that kind of deck on FNM - it's too slow. I love the way "crawling aggro" kills opponent (especially with things like Stab Wound ) but I realized, that it simply won't do against deck bulid on red or blue craps for 1 or 2 mana.
As an example I can give you my two decks - first one shaped in kinda similiar way as yours, the second one evolved from the first. Take whatever you consider usefull from them :)
