Trizzo2 - Thanks for calling this out; I'd somehow missed this one when making this deck. I found during additional play testing that you could tap this for at least 2 (on the rare instance 3) total damage if you have enough instants/sorceries to play on your turn.

BigHairPierre - I did consider Lightning Helix at one time, but I'd like to keep Rain of Gore on hand, unless if I swapped that for Tainted Remedy to negate me losing life.

Tainted Remedy if you want to oppress with your healing.

Gotta spread the mono-black love, so +1 from me. Here are my suggestions for this budget build.

  1. The maindeck seems pretty solid, although you might want to swap out Alms of the Vein with something like Victim of Night so you have a bit more creature removal against decks like Jund.

  2. In the sideboard, if you are going to play a 4-mana card that steals something from the game, just play Memoricide or Cranial Extraction that way you don't have to worry about artifacts with Dispossess.

  3. Your sideboard seems a bit off, might I ask why we are playing Needlebite Trap? If your worried about lifegain matchups (if thats prominent in your meta), you could play Tainted Remedy. I also think a sweeper or two might be good if decks like affinity are in your meta.

  4. To the Slaughter should be Hero's Downfall in my mind, or at least an upgrade option, if you wanna kill things like Karn Liberated that come up in the top-deck game, make it so that it's good against cards like Bloodbraid Elf as well.

Like the build though, and nice touch with Liliana's Caress, let me know how this deck does!

Have you considered Wall of Shards? It's a great, cheap defender, and if they don't remove it, will literally accelerate their demise with Tainted Remedy out.

False Cure is a great idea. "The Cure" is a legacy aggro/combo deck similar to infect which wins by gaining life for the opponent. The pivotal cards are:

False Cure, Tainted Remedy - key effect
Kavu Predator - pivotal creature for the deck.
Skyshroud Cutter, Invigorate, Reverent Silence - free spells that gain/lose life for the opponent.

Anything else is optional. Some lists splash white for Swords to Plowshares, others play Dark Confidant to normilize draws and yet others splash blue for countermagic and Delver of Secrets  Flip.

Charcoal Diamond sucks dong, coming in tapped kills it.

Take a look at Carnival of Souls because you've got some life to play with

Tainted Remedy might be good if the meta gets too life-gain-y

If you want stupid high costed spells for fun I'd throw in a Worst Fears.

Mind Slash could be good to fuck up a blue player's hand.

Shadows of the Past is really good because you're constantly saccing shit for free deck digging, scry is super under-rated but in the late game you can almost guarantee a good top deck.

Bojuka Bog and Tormod's Crypt are important because you don't have a way to deal with graveyard decks like Muldrotha/Sidisi/Karador/Meren.

Leaden Myr isn't that great of a mana dork, Ogre Slumlord is okay but a lot of your sac'd creatures are tokens so I don't know how useful it'll be.

If you want another mana accelerator there's Nirkana Revenant.

Torment of Hailfire can just win you the game too.

Necropotence might be just out of your budget but boy is it a fucking good card.

Black Sun's Zenith is another boardwipe that gets around indestructible and it shuffles back in for later which is always good.

I think I have an even better idea, which i have to say is inspired from the deck Tainted Love.

Tainted Remedy and Beacon of Immortality kills an opponent. But you can still run a cool WB deck with Renewed Faith, Condemn, Alms Beast, Swords to Plowshares (if you can cards from outside the modern pool).

It seems fair, cheap and sweet to do.

I love the combination of Beacon of Immortality and Tainted Remedy for an instant win. I don't see that splashing green for Siege Rhino works too well in this deck and would prefer to stick to /.

+2 Alms Beast, +1 Beacon of Immortality, +1 Idyllic Tutor, -4 Siege Rhino, then simplify your land-base, with maybe just Isolated Chapel, Plains and Swamp
