Delta-117 on Dakkon Reborn

Some good things to add here would be Sword of the Animist, Strata Scythe, Land Tax,Trailblazer's Boots, Imprisoned in the Moon, Rogue's Passage, Wayfarer's Bauble, Solemn Simulacrum, Endless Atlas, Ichor Wellspring,Conqueror's Flail, Hammer of Nazahn, Loxodon Warhammer, the Kaldra cycle could be fun: Helm of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Fireshrieker, Mycosynth Wellspring, maybe Bloodforged Battleaxe, Knight of the White Orchid, O-Naginata, and Silverblade Paladin.

There’s plenty more than what I have thought of like the sword cycle obviously, but some equipment can be quite pricey as I’m sure you already know. Here’s a good resource to check for ideas:

ah okay, now I see why you put in Vampiric Link. Makes Sense. and, yeah, when something is your pet card, then you really want it in your deck, I understand that. I found these as a replacement for Loxodon Warhammer that are also budget: General's Kabuto; Blackblade Reforged; Empyrial Plate; and one of my favorite big buffing equipment: Strata Scythe; But after searching some of these equipment, I thought: "wait, you can only attach equipment to creatures you control. So then I found these: Hero's Blade; Ronin Warclub; Sai of the Shinobi; Stormrider Rig;

Or can you attach equipment to her in response of her etb trigger? I don't know, I could be wrong.

I'm using this guide: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-how-many-lands . As much as I'd like to swap two lands for berserk and rancor, there are still cards like Dungrove Elder and Strata Scythe to synergize with the many lands.

Faith's Shield v Apostle's Blessing? Relic Seeker v Stonehewer Giant to lower curve? Dispatch v Path to Exile? I'd also recommend some beaters like Strata Scythe//Empyrial Plate/Lodestone Myr/Metalwork Colossus, and some ramp pieces like Blinkmoth Urn/Inspiring Statuary/Semblance Anvil. And how do you have the subtype category, is it an option of custom made? Looks good otherwise. Hope this helps <3

The new card Blackblade Reforged would make a great card in this deck and serves as a second copy of Strata Scythe with the obvious bonuses being it comes down a turn sooner, doesn't require you to exile a land, and doesn't care which lands you have as it just checks to see how many lands you have total and not the number of one specific kind of lands.

Something I found was that by raising her power you can switch your live total with her power boosted by equipment. Then the equipment further improves her power and you can switch back gaining life equal to the power the equipment provide each time. It works really well with Strata Scythe and Blackblade Reforged though I am sure others exist as well.

Yes I've built it several times. It's fun. But you need lots of mana for it to be fun. It's a tier 3 CMDR at best. You'll need lots of good ramp. Like mana doublers. Caged Sun, and Extraplanar Lens. You need to focus on what black does best when considering mana ramp. Cabal Coffers, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, and Crypt Ghast. utilize the fact that you'll be mono black so cards like. Nightmare Lash, Lashwrithe, and Strata Scythe. You need big finishers that use big mana. Exsanguinate, and Torment of Hailfire. You'll want to try to have a few ways to stay in control early. Royal Assassin creatures, and some deathtouch creatures. You'll be killing selected creatures so Mimic Vat it good here. You want to make your CMDR more effective, so you'll want Illusionist's Bracers, and Rings of Brighthearth to copy Kalitas's effect throw in Basalt Monolith to make infinite colorless mana when paired up with the Rings of Brighthearth. You'll want to have Grave Betrayal as well this pairs up well with Kalitas. You are gonna need Command Beacon because if and when Kalitas dies. It will be hard recasting her after she dies 1 or 2 times. And you can do a reanimation theme as well where you can pick from graves at will with cards like Animate Dead, Rise from the Grave, Rise of the Dark Realms, and Fated Return. You'll need your basic edh packages. The Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Burnished Hart, Gilded Lotus ramp package. About 4 board wipes. Decree of Pain, Archfiend of Depravity, Black Sun's Zenith, Mutilate. You'll need some other targeted removal and control. Withering Boon to stop etb effects that might threaten you, Imp's Mischief to redirect targeted spells. Sadistic Sacrament for the combo decks. And Praetor's Grasp for the same, or use it to grab a mana rock. Then throw in some strong combos that mono black does well. Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension or Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond. Along with a few other good ones. And some one shot heavy hitters. Like Sorin Markov, Tree of Perdition, and Blood Tribute. Follow the guidelines and you'll have a solid deck.

Ruyen on Snaking into more mana

With all that Green Mana you really need Omnath, Locus of Mana. You also need way more hydra's like Genesis Hydra or Protean Hydra. You may want to voltron your commander with cards like Strata Scythe (I mean +1/+1 for each forest, yes please) or Sword of the Animist.
