Thespian's Stage Discussion

Profet93 on Contract for your death

I recommend adding Vesuva and Thespian's Stage to copy coffers. This shouldnt affect cabal stronghold too much. I know you don't want to remove too many swamps, its very much worth adding these 2, I cannot speak highly enough of them. A flexible mana base, ESPECIALLY in mono black where urborg helps with colorfixing is HIGHLY worth it. Speaking of strongholds, Volrath's Stronghold is useful as well. Mirage Mirror is versatile tility and can copy coffers too!

I dont see any way for you to deal with artifacts/enchantments other than nev disk. I would recommend adding some of the following All Is Dust, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated, Oblivion Stone or the budget counterparts like Lux Cannon, Ratchet Bomb, Spine of Ish Sah, etc...

Corpse Dance could be fun, recur top creature, sac is to commander. Repeatable for 5 mana seems good.

My black deck also is weak to counterspells, as my main (though I do have other options) wincon is a large X spell. You might want to consider Conqueror's Flail or maybe even Boseiju, Who Shelters All. Other people mentioned mana web and the defense grid. I recommend either one or the other, not both. Mana web works well with urborg but doesnt take into account mana dorks/rocks. Defense grid's benefits were explained by a previous user who summed it up quite well. The choice is yours. Additionally, hand disruption is useful in general and will force a blue player to use a counterspell. A great example of this is Mind Twist.

Lastly, Griffstick has a huge.....deck :)

Clyde_Bankston I would love to add Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage but I unfortunately don't have the $50+ for Ms. Marit Lage. Thanks for the suggestion though, a Marit Lage pumped by Heroes' Podium would be a sight to see.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle + Vesuva/Thespian's Stage is a solid combo that this deck could get some real value out of. Hour of Promise can grab 2 of these and put them directly into play, giving you an immediate double Valakut combo. Prismatic Omen makes it so all lands you play count as mountains too, making the combo much more powerful.

I'd also consider cards like Boundless Realms and Scapeshift to get some crazy landfall plays. They also work wonders with the Valakut combo.

This deck is really nice! Good job! I was able to win on the first time playing it, but with some modification. I ditched 3 basic lands and replaced them with Thespian's Stage, Vesuva, and Maze of Ith. Together, I could remove 3 creatures from combat. Combined with Collective Restraint and Sphere of Safety, it was really hard to hit me, since my opponent had to pay 15 mana per creature. Then I used Torrential Gearhulk to cast Cyclonic Rift from my graveyard, and milled him down with Forced Fruition.

The deck is really good! But the mana base NEEDS to be fixed. bouncelands are awful in EVERY deck by far, you shoul at least take some shocklands to make fetches more decent, since you're playing a lot of specific card mana. You should also buy the other staple lands such as other fetches (almost everyone, that's why you need shocklands and not too many base lands!) to fix faster mana, Ancient Tomb (if you're playing 2v2 commander). Chrome Mox is great too (obviously 2v2 commander since it's banned in MTGO format). If you want to play on lands you can consider adding the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo!

Primeval Bounty it's one of the slowest things i've ever read, you should swap it for faster enchantments such as Sylvan Library. Another funny enchantment would be Manabond. Feel free to pass here and take a look at my decklist, you might find something useful for land recursion too!

I would suggest Venser's Journal + Necropotence. Slightly more versatile card draw than Erebos, God of the Dead perhaps?

Upgraded land base:

Reliquary Tower (swap it in for a swamp for free no max hand size, why not?)

Cabal Stronghold (it's a worse coffers, sure, but at least increases your chances of finding one of these effects!!!)

Thespian's Stage

Vesuva (slightly more expensive)

Hey Chuck! I love this lists because CHUCK DONT GIVE A F*** about your feelings. +1 from me! Im not sure if you are just keeping this legal for duel commander. Given your tappedout legality, im assuming this is for multiplayer

A few suggestions...

Helm of Obedience to combo with leyline

Sol Ring

You're playing mono black so ramp is key.... Cabal Coffers, Vesuva, and Thespian's Stage. Expedition Map to find utility lands. Mirage Mirror for super utility

Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle + ashnod's alter = GG

I know you operate off of card draw but sometimes you just need a tutor like Demonic Tutor, Grim Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, etc...

How are you dealing with artifacts and enchantments? Oblivion Stone, Nevinyrral's Disk, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated etc... are all good choices. There are budget ones as well if you like I can list those too.

If you need help on cards to remove, let me know and I'll provide additional feedback.

If you want you can check out my deck for ideas or to provide criticism too. Best of luck, let me know how it goes!

I suggest adding in Thespian's Stage and Dark Depths because that's another thing to get a 20/20 big legend. It's just a thought.
