How have you likes it so far?

I was curious about trying it after the success and rise of Bedlam Reveler at the PT

Was running Tombstalker originally, but in play test it feels like Cryptic Serpent comes out faster.

The Abyss is quite strong. unfortunately it blows up the own Tombstalker. And with Tabernacle, Nether Void and Chains we don't speak about budget buidling anyways.

ok fair enough, I guess it also helps with delirium and just card types.

I have one big piece of advice though. Running Tombstalker in a deck with graveyard matters (Goyf, Flayer, Jace Vryn's Prodigy) is a major nonbo. There's a reason old Jund never ran Gurmag Angler. I suggest maybe trying out something else in that slot, whether that's Thragtusk or some other big beater that doesn't eat away at a necessary resource.

looks fun, mate. As alway, you cook up some crazy unfair ideas! But where's my boy Tombstalker?

Lowenstein,
Idk ... I guess I'd probably go with another Creature. Maybe Flamewake Phoenix #3? Or Tombstalker, as kind of an Angler #5?

Ghost Quarter is around 1 or 2 dollars. Considering you have some cards around 4-5 dollars in your list, I assumed that would be budget friendly. I suppose if you meant a total budget of x amount of dollars regardless of what individual cards cost, then i suppose it can all add up. Also, I forgot about Night's Whisper for card draw and Vampire Nighthawk and Desecration Demon. Normally these won't see much modern play, but as budget options, they are more than good enough.

I also don't like cards like Torment of Hailfire, Remorseless Punishment, or Sword-Point Diplomacy. They cost too much mana for modern, considering they give your opponent the choice of what to discard or sacrifice etc. They're true home is in a good mono-black commander/edh deck.

I don't like Temporal Extortion either for mana cost reason. Unless you're next turn you take with it wins you the game, it might not necessarily do much for all that mana. (Also, feels bad to get it countered by Mana Leak, Remand, or Cryptic Command which are many modern control decks.

I also don't know how I forgot about Hero's Downfall, I'd run two of those regardless of whether they end up in the sideboard or the main. As for big finishers, in addition to everything I've mentioned up to this point, you could run Tombstalker as a one-off.

Yes I agree, if you really want to play this deck, then save up for the Mutavaults and Urborgs. You need Mutavaults just because you need more win-cons. I'm personally trying 1 each of Tomb of Urami (although this might not work as well without Mutavault and Urborg, which both mitigate its drawback) and Phyrexian Totem as additional win-cons. Other creatures that various iterations of 8rack have tried before include Bloodghast, Pack Rat and Delve creatures such as Tombstalker and Gurmag Angler in low numbers. If you have any black fetchlands at all, you can throw 1 or 2 in in case you want Fatal Push to hit something bigger. You can also try Delirium Skeins in your sideboard against control or decks that sandbag cards - should be quite good. Lastly, the deck's curve is pretty low, but if you are playing Smallpox, you'd probably need more than 21 lands. Most people go with 24, and like you said, it's not that bad because you can pitch it to Raven's Crime.

Poseidon31 on Modern Mono Black Aggro on a budget

I would replace Tombstalker with Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Bone Picker with Vampire Nighthawk and would add 2 copies of Doomblade.

Than you need more Lifelink, to use the Whip as a crucial finisher and the Arena as a card draw, without high selfdamage, maybe with Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Tribute to Hunger. Normally your opponent will only have one or two creatures on the board. Therefore Tribute to Hunger is more efficient as Consume Spirit. Then you need something against Aggro or Token Decks. Yahenni's Expertise should do its job, and can bring you a Nighthawk or else back on the board, after you cleared it.

Those creatures are all double black for your devotion to black.

I run a siilar deck, maybe you give it a look:You played a creature? And.... its gone!.
