Ultimate Price Discussion
3 weeks ago
Happymaster19, I think I'm leaning towards that as well. Ideally Commit could hit spells or permanents, with the potential upside of graveyard tuck/refilling the hand, but it hasn't performed for me yet in playtesting. Unsubstantiate would probably be similar.
So far, Tragic Slip was a combo with Dreamcatcher (easy to flash in a Spirit and then Slip) for hard removal that hits everything from DS to Tasigur. And also...stuff dies a lot in Magic. But I also have copies of Ultimate Price etc which I'll test. Into the Roil/Ojutai's Command do decent impressions of CCommand, so I'm content with that for now.
Again, I appreciate the feedback! I'll make some edits asap.

Off the top of my head all I can think of for upgrades are maybe replacing the Duress playset with one of Inquisition of Kozilek and for removal instead of Ultimate Price I'd consider going with Disfigure, Dismember, or Vendetta for some 1 drop removal and for turn 2 Go for the Throat or Victim of Night. Monocolor creatures just seem a bit too restrictive to be playing on the mainboard imo, but definitely a good sideboard just in case they're playing a mono colored deck. Other potential idea is to drop a Languish for a faster removal spell since it seems like turn 3 on is pretty much taken care of.

Mandalorian, thanks for taking the time to give some suggestions, I'm gonna take a look at them. As for Hero's Downfall, I considered it, only there are hardly any planeswalker played in our group, making it basically a Murder. I chose Ultimate Price due to the amount of mono colored decks I run into.

This is actually a really sweet idea for a deck - especially with the tokens dying and triggering Vela! I'll mention a few things for you to think about:
In any Eldrazi deck, the mana base is going to be really important. A lot of the lands you have in currently can be replaced with better cards. In addition, you don't need as many colorless only sources as you have very few cards that require . I will refer you to my go to deck helper http://manabasecrafter.com/ which helps me cover all the bases (heh).
Another issue I see is a lack of draw in the deck. If you play it as is you will probably find that you're hitting the mana you need with nothing to follow up. Cut ~5 creatures and add generic blue draw spells (Fact or Fiction, Deep Analysis, ect) to increase your deck's consistency. Don't be afraid to add a few bigger draw spells like Stroke of Genius and Recurring Insight as well, you're going to have the mana for it!
Last but not least, you should revisit your removal spells (counterspells/destroy target X). Black is the best color in MTG for destruction and you could do some more digging to find some really nice stuff - for example switching out Ultimate Price for Barter in Blood. As for counterspells, If you're wanting to stay on theme with the Eldrazi keep the ones you have, but there strictly better counter spells such as Mana Leak and plain ol' Counterspell.
All in all, a great idea that just needs some refining - best of luck with the deck!

I like the idea! Liliana of the Dark Realms could be really good as she will tutor land for you and if you need either buff a vamp to finish them off or remove a creature. You also have two destroy nonblack creature removals so you could try out either Ultimate Price or Go for the Throat depending on local meta. Good luck with it!

Hi! I love black-based midrange lists and i have a pair of suggestions for you. I would go with a more traditional split of 6-8 removals and 6-8 discard spells. Now you have 12 removal and 4 creatures with Deathtouch, which is like a nerfed removal (it can be destroyed and must block to deal damage), so you are good against deck with a lot of creatures, but have no way to deal with noncreature spells. Let's start talking about removals. I am assuming you are on a budget because you don't run Fatal Push and Dismember. The problem is that you can't touch things like Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Gurmag Angler and big beaters like them. IMO your best bet in a mono-B build is a mix of 2-3 Doom Blade's variations like Victim of Night, Smother, Ultimate Price and Go for the Throat. Walk the Plank is also solid, but being a sorcery is a big disadvantage. A one mana removal can come in handy and if you can't afford Fatal Push, Disfigure is a good substitute. It doesn't kill Tarmogoyf or Death's Shadow, but it is a good turn one play against smaller threats and lategame becomes a combat trick. Still, i would not play more than 2 copies mainboard, with maybe 1-2 in sideboard against Elves, Spirits, Counter Company and similar. Then i would replace Grasp of Darkness with Dismember, which kills almost everything in the format, can cost just one mana and is now fairly cheap (around 2.5 $) so you should not have problem buying a pair. On a personal note, i like to play a wipe (Flaying Tendrils, Drown in Sorrow, Mutilate, Languish...) in my mainboard, just in case.
Talking about discard, i strongly suggest you to buy a playset of Inquisition of Kozilek, because it is one of the strongest discard ever printed and is cheaper than ever. With enough money, 3-4x Inquisition of Kozilek, 2-3x Thoughtseize and 1x Collective Brutality would be my go to. Sadly that is not my case, so i have to play with 4x IoK, 2x Duress and a single Wrench Mind and i can grant you that it works reasonably. A pair of Duresses in the side is also really helpful against decks with a low number of creatures. I hope this can be of some help.
