Instead of Shadowmage Infiltrator you could run Tormented Soul for a lot cheaper mana-wise.

Praetor's Grasp gives you a fun way to steal a good blue or black centerpiece from an opponent-at the worst it's another Sol Ring or utility.

Since you're playing to avoid being picked on early, you can skip a turn with Magosi, the Waterveil and use it to a get a second turn later when it matters more.

Dauthi Embrace is neat because you can make any creature essentially unblockable-or so that it can't block at a critical juncture. May be fun political wise to aid someone with a swing, or make it so a critical blocker isn't there...

Great deck!

Silhana Ledgewalker might be a good alternative I agree. Would prevent removal that Tormented Soul is vulnerable to.

you should replace your Tormented Souls with Silhana Ledgewalkers it's a much better target. A hexproof flyer is tough to deal with. It may even remove your need for Bioshift and free up 3 spaces in your deck.

The reason that I don't have any discard is because the original idea, the whole point of this deck, is to have MAX removal. The idea was to run 100% of noncreatures be removal. Discard may be a staple of black in modern but the point of this deck was to ATTEMPT to be viable without it.

Also, I added Relentless Dead and Gravecrawler in place of Paragon of Open Graves and Tormented Soul.

Thanks to everyone who made suggestions whether I accepted them or not. I don't know a lot of cards where I only came in at BFZ so I come here to gain a larger knowledge of what cards are out there in modern.

youve had tons of viable suggestions that you refuse to listen to.

If you're going to play black then you need discard. It's a staple of the format. Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek or Duress.

You don't need a black anthem but since you insist on having one Bad Moon is the most cost effective. Lord of the Undead is okay if you're running Zombies.

As it is you have a mono black good stuff deck with none of the good stuff.

I suggest you look at some of the mono black decks around the site to see what's actually viable.

A good replacement for Tormented Soul would be Gravecrawler, Diregraf Ghoul, or Vampire Lacerator. Although your turn 1 play should actually be discard.

MAJOR UPDATE on the deck. After some testing it ran really bad so this is the new version. So far, the games with it have went decent which is much better than the vampire tribal. Geralf's Messenger's Undying and Gatekeeper of Malakir's extra removal really help. I'm looking for an upgrade on Tormented Soul and Paragon of Open Graves.

Tormented Soul occupies the 1 CMC slot instead of Slitherhead because it is unblockable. I want creatures who are most likely to do player damage, to buff with counters scavenged from Death's Shadow.

I don't really see why using Tormented Soul.

Wouldn't Slitherhead be more useful?
