Succumb to Temptation Discussion

I do have Succumb to Temptation and I like the idea of Phyrexian Arena not sure if I'll use that or Bloodgift Demon since it's cheaper

I like this deck a lot, but is lacks card draw. Maybe something like Succumb to Temptation or Phyrexian Arena.

Shivan Gorge adds more opponent damage.

Switch Succumb to Temptation for Phyrexian Arena or budget option Underworld Connections for repeated card draw

Consider cycling lands for extra card draw e.g Canyon Slough, Desert of the Fervent, Barren Moor or similar.

Replace Shock with Searing Blood

Perhaps Rift Bolt could replace Lightning Strike as a quasi political tool?

Seismic Assault or budget option Molten Vortex ditches useless lands.

Swap Murder for Terminate or Dreadbore. Or use Seal of Doom as a political tool.

Nettle Drone and Ancestral Statue also combo kill with Rakdos.

And Torment of Scarabs would be fun!

Penthoplayer So I've been doing a lot of testing... The 2 of in card draw isn't really doing as much work as I'm wanting it to... I'm not sure if I need to go to 3 of or what. I've also tried running CD spells like Night's Whisper, Altar's Reap, Succumb to Temptation but yea. Also, tried out Harmonize and Wall of Omens. Gonna try out 3 of's and 4 of's, I don't think it'll be worth it as a 1 of. I have found that Obzedat has been doing work for me online and at my LGS though.

Furthermore, lots of card draw. The ideal hand is lot's of apostles, but you will never get 6 of them into play before turn 5 without carddraw. And if you are slower than that, you could just ramp and get the cmc 6-8 demons into play by casting them.

Cards like Sign in Blood, Read the Bones, Succumb to Temptation and Necropotence help a lot.

I like this deck idea, the one thing I would suggest is adding more card advantage. Make room for 4 copies of Succumb to Temptation between the maindeck and sideboard. Or possibly some combination of Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and Live Fast.

You might also want to go up a couple of the cycling deserts, so there's less chance of you being mana screwed, and you can cycle them away in case of mana flood.

You're going to be chewing through your own life and hand size with this list.

Gifted Aetherborn and Succumb to Temptation could find room in the list

Hey, I like the deck and have been running my own mono black control deck in standard for quite a few months now.

1). I think you should add Gifted Aetherborn, hes such a great card and any deck that can cast him should run him. The curve of Fatal Push -> Gifted Aetherborn -> Liliana, the Last Hope is super strong.

2). Harsh Scrutiny is a card i like to run as an additional 1 drop, its good early game and later game the one mana scry doesnt hurt much.

3). I wouldnt run x2 Cruel Finality, as you only have Collective Brutality to discard it early game, and if you draw the second, you will be waiting a long time to cast it.

4). I love Drana, Liberator of Malakir but I feel you need more creatures in your deck to make her more useful. I would swap her for a more impactful creature/spell.

5). I really wanted to play Demon of Dark Schemes in my deck, however i felt like the ability would never be used, and with me being a control deck, by turn 6/7/8 my opponent shouldnt have many/any creatures on the board so his wipe may hit nothing. However if you want to keep the creature, i would suggest swapping Succumb to Temptation with Live Fast. You downgrade to a sorcery speed draw spell, but do benefit from gaining extra energy meaning the demon should get an activation.

The above is only personal preference but I am happy to give more of my opinion if required.
