Hi NV_1980,

I've found some time to update the deck based on your suggestions;

  • I've removed Fate Unraveler from the deck as you suggested. I've replaced him with Phyrexian Tyranny instead of Underworld Dreams mainly because the UBR cost feels a bit better than BBB cost as I worry I would struggle to have three black mana earlier in the game.

  • I've added one boardwipe as you suggested. I didn't use Volcanic Fallout because it's too unversitale and I didn't use Fiery Confluence mainly because I just don't feel like buying an unnecessarily expensive card if I can replace with a cheaper boardwipe. I've settled with Evacuation for now. I may replace it with a better boardwipe or one that fits the theme of the deck better later. I'm still considering Pyrohemia.

As for the other cards you've suggested;

  • Repercussion is a ridiculous card which I will have to try at least for the fun of it; it will probably not find a permanent place in the deck though as I feel like it would "undermine" all the work the rest of the deck did in the game by just ending the game with Blasphemous Act and it wouldn't really matter what happened in the game before. (It's difficult to explain what I mean but I hope you somewhat understand what I mean.)

  • Wound Reflection is an excellent addition to the deck; I just don't feel like buying it because of its cost for now. The deck will have to suffice with Archfiend of Dispair.

  • Other your suggestion were all reasonable but I did not use them mainly because I play in a very casual meta with my friends so my decks can be a bit more fun and casual aswell. (For example, I don't have to worry that much about extremely consistent fast aggro decks etc. :-)

Sorry for the long answer; I wanted to explain my decisions.

Hi mate,

Great looking deck! I like how you've combined themes. Here are some ideas on what I would change to make this even more awesome:

  • though all of the creatures you're using work very well with your chosen themes, most of them are rather expensive to cast. This makes it difficult for you to deal with decks that open aggressively; also because the wipes you've chosen are relatively expensive to cast. To counteract early aggression, I would consider adding Propaganda, Pyrohemia, Fiery Confluence and/or Volcanic Fallout.

  • I'd probably replace Fate Unraveler with Underworld Dreams, as overall it's more difficult to get rid of someone's enchantments compared to someone's creatures.

  • Since you're running so many 'pain' cards, it might be beneficial to consider adding Neheb, the Eternal; the extra mana he generates can surely be put to good use in your deck.

  • As for some 'pain' suggestions, Citadel of Pain and Repercussion seem like fun. Wound Reflection can also be pretty devastating.

Hope any of this helps. If you feel inclined, please have a look at one of more of my EDH decks; I'd like your opinion on any of them.

Ixthinon I have Underworld Dreams in there now and I am definitely going to get Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, didn't realize the devotion part. Thanks yo!

Underworld Dreams would hurt them a lot with the forced card draw. Perhaps consider a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Mono black, so devotion works well in this deck.

Thanks for your comments, I will rebuild it with your remark in mind. wallisface thanks for your analysis Shrieking Affliction is a good idea. I will replace non modern card and remove 4+ cmc cards. Replace Scythe Specter by Nightveil Specter. Underworld Dreams is a nice idea too.

well its not modern legal... believe me though.. i REALLY wish Dark Ritual was in modern, it would be so broken but man it would be fun!!!

you have a good start though!! very interesting. you could add in some Underworld Dreams to replace one of those non modern legal cards, its not discard though, but it is fun to play. maybe even some Dash Hopes and Darkness both also real good in mono black.

FYI Cabal Ritual and Scythe Specter are also not modern legal.

Kingtalk: I was thinking about Underworld Dreams. How well does it work for you? Is there an opposite of Wheel of Torture, like how there's 2 racks?

I can't wait to really grind this in some games and see how well it turns out. The sadistic side appears. Who knows, might even move further down the path of darkness and add stax.

Psychic Possession with Teferi's Puzzle Box creates insane draw... GG with Underworld Dreams... Jace's Archivist could be great too with Liliana's Caress.
