Thespian's Stage Discussion
3 days ago
I don't really see why this is any better or faster than Legacy lands. It's much easier to use Thespian's Stage to get out early Marit Lage. If you want to use Blood Moon + Depths, I'd take a look at existing Lands lists and see if they could use a Blood Moon as a stall piece--but I kind of doubt it.

Well Illusificate im so glad you said that because i rly wanted to explain the reason behind said combo. Well in the deck you are suggesting (which is so fun to play btw) there is the risk of them countering your combo and if you have an empty library as soon as you draw you lose the game instantly... many players skip over the fact that this combo is so strong only because it can't be countered. Once Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage are in play and online you just wait for them to tap out for their hard removal. And then....20 dmg. Lands also always hold priority which is another factor to consider.

Nice deck. I like where you're going with this. As with a lot of mono black, I also get myself down to low life. I then become a lowlife by using Soul Conduit. While it does cost a lot to play and activate, getting 12 mana can't be too difficult in EDH. Especially with Thespian's Stage and Mirage Mirror copying coffers. Because why have 1 or 2 when you can have 4! Have urborg and Deserted Temple in play to add even more mana! You already have the candelabra which is great. It's also worth noting Mirage Mirror can dodge many forms of removal and can combo with dark depths. Moreover, thespian's stage can combo with dark depths.
In Garruk's Wake > Plague Wind. Personally I think both cost too much for what they do.
Forcefield is nice since you already have both maze effects
Rings of Brighthearth MUST GO IN NOW! 2 cards back to your hand? Double the fetch lands (ramp), double planeswalker activations. Please add this now.
Trading Post to help recur your artifacts, provide chump blockers, gain life if you're running too low, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, works well with Contamination. Also helps sac your artifacts to prevent them from getting exiled, as I'm sure your candelabra is a big target
If you want some other ideas to incorporate into your deck, feel free to check out my deck The Descent Into Darkness. If you want suggestions of what to remove for some of my suggestions, let me know

Yahenni is another excellent commander choice i forgot to mention but you seem to have noticed.. it? Idk if yahenni has a specific gender
Id recommend extra mana ramp lands to get things out sooner and bolster Exsanguinate or Consume Spirit effects, the lands im referring to are the ones i mentioned earlier, Crypt of Agadeem, Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and perhaps even a Thespian's Stage to copy coffers or crypt for INSANE mana potential

Thanks for the upvote on my Arjun deck!
I have a couple of suggestions I hope you will find worth considering:
Disrupt Decorum is a new spell from the Vampiric Bloodlust deck. It might help with keeping some aggression away from you at least for a round.
I noticed the large number of basic mountains so I thought of Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. A friend has it in his mono red deck along with a lot of mountains, but also with Thespian's Stage and I think Vesuva in order to clone it. Then including a few fetchers like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse allow you to use your mountains as weapons at instant speed.

I've been running this deck for a bit. Its a solid EDH deck out of the box that can be immediately competitive. The biggest issues I've had so far are pacing. It needs more bi-color lands, and more land fetch cards.
Some cards I'm looking at include Awakening Zone, Blooming Marsh, Bojuka Bog, Catacomb Sifter, Dark Depths, From Beyond, Hissing Quagmire, Woodland Cemetery, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Thespian's Stage, Temple of Malady, Temple of the False God, Reliquary Tower, Ramunap Excavator, Overgrown Tomb to try and get lands or better land options. Also, Dark Depths + Thespian's Stage can turn nasty quick.
We seem to be on the same page with a lot of our sideboard cards. Couple others I'm contemplating that might work, are adding Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion as a nice combo. I'm also considering Bontu the Glorified. I also plan to add a Vampire Hexmage to combo with Dark Depths.
Hope some of these ideas help!
