Nothing rotates out with Amonkhet, the next rotation will happen when Hour of Devastation comes out. WotC went back to a once a year rotation.

hey guys. you may remember a while back i was insane about Thing in the Ice Flip. To sum up my history with it, I brewed with it, piloted it on cockatrice with a ridiculous win/loss ratio and watched it become an archetype, then Fatal Push spoil and Gitaxian Probe ban happened and the deck vanished.
I'll do an extensive analysis in the description of this deck.

but in essence, it truly has moved away from being an UR aggro deck and is now a midrange deck capable of outvaluing jund, outgrowing bant eldrazi threats and outracing zoo.
I just dusted and overhauled it a few days ago, but so far the results are overwhelmingly positive and having Blood Moon as a sideboard plan is pretty huge.
Let me be clear, I am not looking for upvotes, I'm just hugely interested what you think about this.
PS: I havent faced Deaths Shadow Jund/Grixis yet, and i fear that will put a bit of a dampener on my mood, but still. both Thing in the Ice Flip and Bedlam Reveler are capable of outgrowing even that deck.

Stephencliffe thanks for the tip, but splashing blue will probably mean i end up running Thing in the Ice Flip and Disallow aswell as other counterspells, im gonna keep it black red for the pure removal synergy, thanks for the tips though :)

Yea, I've been playing Golgari and Mono Black my entire MTG career.
Blue and black don't typically pair very well because they don't compliment each other's weaknesses. However a few decks do exist, Faeries, Mill, Horror Tribal (Thing in the Ice Flip,) and Zombies. Of those Faeries is typically regarded as the best.
Green and black however go perfectly hand in hand. Green offers everything mono black lacks, better creatures, artifact, and enchantment removal that compliment black's control aspects.
Have you considered playing Mono Green Infect? It can be built for very cheap and is capable of turn 2 wins.

I second Warped Landscape being in one colour means that tapping for colourless is a lot less of an issue.
I am looking at a standard mill deck too and I have to recommend Baral's Expertise as a 2-of due to this scenario.
Startled Awake Flip creature on the battlefield. Thing in the Ice Flip with 2 counters. You baral's expertise targetting your startled awake creature and 2 of their artifacts. You return startled awake to your hand and then cast it for free with the second half of expertise and feel like the dirtiest bastard in the game.
That's best case scenario. You can still return 3 of anything to their hand if you don't have a spell in hand. That to me is still worth 5 mana
