Kingtalk on The Black Oath

I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper  Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey  Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha

What about Torgaar, Famine Incarnate? Great early game against opponent, and great for you late game if you took a pounding.

not shabby, but you can totally bring the cost down and make it a bit more efficient. I would add a few Rite of Belzenlok, and Torgaar, Famine Incarnate.

I see why you have Walking Ballista, but I don't think it fits.

Made a few changes as I have been playing a more and more. I removed the twoCabal Stronghold and replaced them with Foul Orchard. I also added in Duress into the mix and kept Divest as well. playing the two seemed to have worked well in most matches. Other additions included Gruesome Fate, Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, Grunn, the Lonely King, and Broken Bond. Being a newbie, the deck for me has played well and has earned some compliments. Building this deck widened my horizon of MTG, as I began to start reading deeper into each card, analyzing how it will play with other cards.

in many cases, a single Arch of Orazca can be to many if it comes to early, or you have more important things to spend your mana on. I would reduce the count to a singleton & add another Swamp. 19-20 Swamp is a good bench mark with Cabal Stronghold

Also, 2x Torgaar, Famine Incarnate in addition to 2x Demonlord Belzenlok & 2x Josu Vess, Lich Knight is way to top heavy. you do not want any of them in your starting hand or the early game in general. I would recommend dropping Torgaar entirely for something smaller and more useful - Gifted Aetherborn Fatal Push, & Never // Return are definitely top priorities.

Also, the same is true with Mastermind's Acquisition 4x of them is too top heavy without purpose. treat that card as an emergency duplicate for your sideboard. having 1 or 2 in the opening hand or early game is just not a good thing as everything you may want is further into the late game. dropping to a singleton or 2 of will allow you to speed up the decks aggression.

chirz2792, Necropotence is a triggered effect, based on the new wording. Confirmed with a judge that he can place the effect on the stack, discard an Eldrazi Titan, reshuffle his graveyard, and then the Necropotence removal trigger removes 0 cards from Graveyard.

linksdeity, have you thought about Torgaar, Famine Incarnate for this deck or Oath of Ghouls?

I would drop the Stoneforge Mystic in favor of something that does more for your deck. Something like Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, (just an example, you could add something else) because your deck only has two targetable equipment's, and while both are good, if you draw Mystic and you already have the two equipment's either in hand or on board you are just playing a two mana do-nothing creature. Something that either gives you sacrifice outlets or a card that gives you stuff to sacrifice would be much better here.

Deck looks awesome! I'd replace Harvester of Souls with Abyssal Persecutor. Quicker to get out, gives a false sense of security and dominates the field.

You may also want to look at the Gravecrawler and Blasting Station combo. Works especially well with Crypt of Agadeem or Cabal Stronghold and Gravecrawler is great for getting out your demons.

Also might want to check out Torgaar, Famine Incarnate.
