Moonbar on Mardu Death, Delve & Destroy

Tombstalker is such a badass card. +1 just for that.

Hi there,

Sorry for the late response, I don't get notifications on my binder wall. That sounds like a good trade so far, would you include...

Total: $67.00

for my Scalding Tarn (52.00) + other stuff from my binder?

Since you can't run Shrieking Affliction, I suggesting going towards the style of Legacy Pox.

Smallpox, Sinkhole, Dark Ritual, Mishra's Factory, Duress, Innocent Blood and Tombstalker are all awesome cards you should consider. At that point, you should only need The Rack as an additional win con.

Sargeras on Mono-Black Devotion

As a fellow mono-black player, I've gotta support what you are trying to do, so +1, but I have quite a few suggestions:

  1. Since you are in mono-black, I'f suggest Victim of Night over Doom Blade, since Victim of Night is the least conditional removal spell in black.

  2. I'd highly recommend swapping out Vampire Nighthawk for Gifted Aetherborn, the card is more on curve and would allow you to be more consistent with what you are trying to do since the 2/3s are usually roadblocks by themselves anyway.

  3. Run Phyrexian Arena over Sign in Blood and a Duress, since continuous card draw is what really turns on the power of a mono-black deck.

  4. I'd move Duress to the sideboard altogether, since you really will noly bring it out for control/combo matchups, the best discard cards are Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, but since you are on a budget, Wrench Mind or Distress are the best budget options.

  5. I'd honestly ditch the 2 Tombstalker for 2 more Stromgald Crusader, since the Tombstalkers are usually only good after you use cards like Smallpox anyway, and Crusader is a better mana sink.

  6. Since you don't have a lot of black mana symbols to take advantage of, I'm unsure if Gray Merchant of Asphodel has such a good pairing with Lashwrithe, I'd honestly reccomend just playing Squelching Leeches, but that's your call.

  7. The deck needs a sideboard plan, I'm sunsure what your matchups are, but good cards for mono black sideboards on a budget are Duress, Pithing Needle, Ratchet Bomb, Nihil Spellbomb, Lost Legacy/Memoricide, Hero's Downfall, Vampire Hexmage, Everlasting Torment, and Rain of Tears.

Let me know if you'd like any more help!

Cheers!

Really nice deck! I'm building something similar to this right now and I've been wondering how easy it could be to hit delirium with grim flayer. Can you do it consistently?

Also, have you thought about delve spells? Things like Tombstalker or Gurmag Angler ?They can hit the board as early as turn 4 with very little effort and they don't even have to resolve to deal tremendous amount of damage with Vial Smasher the Fierce. I also happen to play french commander and know that a 5/5 body is not something you can left unchecked either!

nice, I've made a deck that sacrifices creatures as well, maybe if you have time you could take a look at it? Death at the Gate of Hell this deck focuses more on a turn two Demon of Death's Gate, mostly 1 mana creatures, but in this deck I have no way of returning my creatures, I just use Tombstalker to take advantage of so many cards in graveyard to cast that for free.

Pranker0 on DeDe will have his day v1.7

Decided to add a Godless Shrine to the land base so I can add Stony Silence and Apostle's Blessing to the sideboard. Also, added Tombstalker to the main board. With how many 1-2 cmc instants and sorceries I'm running, delve made sense. Made a couple other changes to the sideboard to help shore up some weaknesses.

I'm debating getting rid of Beseech the Queen and Goldnight Castigator, but I have no idea what to sub in. Thought about Goblin Dark-Dwellers for the Castigator, but I wasn't sure about Beseech. Yes, it's a decent tutor, but I always end up feeling like I wasted my turn if I have to use it to find Heartless Summoning.

You need more land, probably around 23 because otherwise it might be impossible to cast things like Jester's Cap or Haunting Echoes. If you add lands, I would definitely inculde one Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, never now when you need it.

For a wincon, you might consider something like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Tombstalker as an addition to Angler
