+1 from me. I love the idea and low Avg CMC. A few cards I recommend most mono black decks should have...

Vesuva and Thespian's Stage to copy cabal coffers. You seem to have spent a lot of money on this deck so I will recommend Candelabra of Tawnos to untap all your nonbasics.

Sensei's Divining Top has a low cmc, helps filter, and when you have infinite mana with ring, you can draw your whole deck.

Whenever you can, please check out my deck The Descent Into Darkness

Calliber on That's a cool deck you got there!

Stunt Double, Evil Twin, Vizier of Many Faces would all be better than Clone and cheap to obtain. Sakashima's Student if you want to spend.

Vesuva or Thespian's Stage for potential lands.

Control Magic and Corrupted Conscience make for good options as well.

Praetor's Grasp

....I run a Dimir deck that essentially the same thing.

For Tron, I recommend NOT using Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, but rather, Kozilek, the Great Distortion and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. I understand you want to use the Annihilator effect, but these cards are simply too slow for modern, especially when you can hardcast 2 Reality Smasher's on T3 and just smack your opponent in the face multiple times. For sideboard, I recommend getting a playset of Chalice of the Void and a few Engineered Explosives. Also, for lands, try using Thespian's Stage as it has the same idea as Vesuva, but can also be used instantly as well. Otherwise, I like your concept!

sylvannos on Would This Be Semi-Competitive At ...

You can absolutely shit all over combo decks in Legacy with 12-Post. The key is to play 4 Chalice of the Void and either Trinisphere or Thorn of Amethyst. This requires Ancient Tomb and City of Traitors, on top of the usual 12 posts. Even an Eldrazi list will be lacking without City of Traitors and Ancient Tomb.

Wastelands can further strain your opponent's mana base. Combined with Lodestone Golem and Chalice of the Void, your opponent won't be able to cast spells if they don't have Force of Will or Daze on the spot.

I play 12-Post MUD myself. The hardest matchups are against fair decks like Shardless BUG and Miracles.

While City of Traitors and Chalice of the Void are expensive, no doubt, they're on the cheaper side of Legacy staples. They're certainly cheaper than trying to jump into the format with Underground Sea! I would at least get some Ancient Tombs before you jump into FNMs or even build the rest of the deck. Your land base would look something like:

4x Eye of Ugin
4x Eldrazi Temple
4x Cloudpost
4x Glimmerpost
4x Vesuva
4x Ancient Tomb
1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth/Wastes/City of Traitors/Mishra's Factory

That way, you're always playing lands that tap for 2 mana. Turn 1 Eldrazi Mimic/Thorn of Amethyst into turn 2 Thought-Knot Seer can be crippling.

I would straight-up cut the green and Expedition Maps out of your list. Swap those out with Thorn of Amethysts, Trinispheres, equipment, or just more Eldrazi.

Your sideboard looks fine, except for the Glacial Chasms. Walking Ballista, Ratchet Bomb, or Spatial Contortion seem like stronger options. Silent Arbiter works wonders as well. If you're worried about the Show and Tell matchup, another Duplicant or Spine of Ish Sah can go far.

Oloro_Magic on Smash Through Eternities

You should be playing 4 Vesuva and if not that at least Thespian's Stage. You could also consider Ancient Stirrings to get better access to your lands, 12-post is a known deck so people are going to deny you with stuff like Wasteland, the ability to have a post in hand thusly becomes invaluable.

This is actually a very interesting deck. I LOVE the Phage win con! +! from me!

As a mono black players, we both seek to win through combo. Since we are mono black, we have a lot of room for our mana base. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Vesuva, Thespian's Stage, Expedition Map are all key for mono black ramp! Volrath's Stronghold for recursion.

Sensei's Divining Top for filter and to draw your whole deck when you have infinite mana!

LeaPlath on Dark Devotion

OK, so, there are more efficient ways to build the creature devotion.

Bloodghast is easier to recurr than traitor, and you can play fetches easily. Gatekeeper of Malakir is actually pretty solid given a lot of the DS decks want to play 1 creature and protect it, and this kills that creature and blocks. Relentless Dead recurrs itselfs, Merchant and Messenger which is hot. Geralf's Messenger is generically good devotion. Phyrexian Obliterator is a bit iffy, I don't like it all that much but it sees play as a 2 of. Gray Merchant of Asphodel should be a 4 of all the time to be quite honest. You want to see multiples and play on curve.

Liliana of the Veil & Liliana, the Last Hope are also awesome, but I would go for like a 1/2 split veil to last hope, as last hope does more in this sort of deck.

Fatal Push exists, add in the fetchlands for Bloodghast and everything in the format dies. Maybe some Dismember to, or if you add in some Tombs, Abrupt Decay.

Despise isn't run in modern because it just isn't that good, being conditional where as Thoughtseize is unconditional and IoK hits 90% of the targets in the format.

Grave Pact may give 3 devotion, but it doesn't do anything really. They just play around it. The decks that care about this can sacrifice their mana dorks, and the other decks have Path to Exile and similar.

Grotesque Mutation is just bad. Hero's Downfall is probably better as Never in your sideboard.

You saids Vesuva works well with Nykthos, how do you mean?

4x Fulminator Mage are must haves for the sideboard.

Grifoneis on Mana Ramp lv.2 - SKYROCKET (green)

1 month ago

If you're building in a format that doesn't care about bans/restrictions then you might want to switch to Tron lands Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower and the Locus lands Cloudpost Glimmerpost and then specific land fetches like Expedition Map and land copiers like Vesuva and Thespian's Stage for even more mana. The only thing is it's all colorless so you'd either have to drop green and just use Eldrazi and Artifacts or this isn't that big of a help.
