really nice list youve got here. Seems pretty tight already, but if you had some room, id suggest Tainted Remedy shuts down other life gain decks on sight. Erebos doesn't hurt the opponents just shuts it down. Pairing Tainted Remedy + Beacon of Immortality is hilarious.

also along those lines Tainted Sigil youve got aetherflux reservoir already in there. you would pay 50 life, shoot someone for 50, sac the sigil, gain 100. even a well timed Exsanguinate does amazing with this.

Thank you for the reply scumbling1! I have considered a few of those cards, mainly Heartless Hidetsugu. Considering that Hidetsugu + Dictate of the Twin Gods or any other damage doubler card such as Insult / Injury draws the game for everyone at the table if there is no interaction, (and honestly if everyone loses you still pretty much win in a casual game in my opinion), it is a potent option since there are multiple ways to set up the combo and if you have a card like angel's grace you still "legitimately" win. I'd say that if your meta is more combo/blue deck heavy and there aren't many token decks in your play group, chuck the Ghostly Prison type effects for Hidetsugu and damage doublers, which are potent on their on. I do not like Dire Fleet Ravager in this deck because there aren't many options to abuse its etb over and over. Bond of agony is ok, however since we don't have access to ramp in Mardu, I decided against it. Finally, I am on the fence about Havoc Festival. It stops enemy life gain, but also yours, which is sometimes needed. A better card might be Tainted Remedy Which you could combine with Beacon of Immortality to kill someone. However, I feel that Hidetsugu is a better option in general since it pretty much ignores your opponent's life totals.

Metroid_Hybrid on Mono-Black Wishboard?

1 month ago

I am strongly considering slotting a Mastermind's Acquisition into a pair of Mono-Black decks that I have..

I’ve already asked the owner of the LGS that I generally play at about the card, and he told me that a 15-card Sideboard would be perfectly acceptable..

So, that being said, my question here is this: What are the 15 best, situationally powerful (but otherwise useless), Artifact and/or Mono-Black cards for a Mono-Black Sideboard/“Wishboard”?

Examples: Virulent Plague vs a table full of tokens, Extirpate vs Shadowborn Apostle/Relentless Rats, Tainted Remedy vs Lifegain decks, a Pithing Needle for shutting off a particular Wincon, or maybe even Artificer's Hex vs most Voltron builds, etc..

A good one shot kill I use in my Oloro deck is to have Tainted Remedy out and cast Beacon of Immortality targeting an opponent.

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!

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.
