Victim of Night Discussion
12 hours ago
If it's for casual, I wouldn't worry too much about running Guildgates. The tap lands from the Khans block are actually strictly better just because you gain a life. If you're looking to improve the land base a bit, Drowned Catacomb aren't too expensive. And then if you're really serious Watery Grave and Polluted Delta.
I'm not a fan of Soul Ransom. It's kind of bulky and expensive, even if it does allow you to draw cards. You can use Murder, nothing wrong with that. Other decent kill cards include Dismember, Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, and Victim of Night.
Another cool one-drop you might consider is Hedron Crab. If you do that, you want lands that enter multiple times. If you can't afford Polluted Delta, then Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds will do fine.
Another cool 2-drop for mill is Wight of Precinct Six. It can get fat pretty quickly.
3x Crypt Incursion is a lot, I would only run one or two copies at the most.
Consuming Aberration is a sweet card. I think rather than putting cards in here to make him unblockable you might be able to do it through the land base. Adding a few Rogue's Passage would do that and free up slots for other cards.
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver is just an awesome card to steal their stuff.
I hope that helps some! If you want, I can put together a deck list of what I would run.

I always find Victim to be the nuts...

A whole lot more removal (Abrupt Decay, Victim of Night, Go for the Throat, Dismember, maybe some boardwipes such as Damnation or Languish). Believe me, you literally won't win any games if all your deck has is a bunch of creatures and recursion spells. You need to stop the opponent from executing their plan, not just carry on with yours.
And literally ANYTHING is better than Crumbling Colossus. That card is just garbage. Get rid of it.

The large number of singletons in you deck heavily decrease the consistency of your draws. The deck is relatively low on interaction while being very slow for a modern aggro deck, as most modern aggro decks want to have won by turn 3-4 and on occasion with a nut draw some aggro decks can win on turn 2 if there is no interaction from the opponent. The large bulk of your creatures are below curve while offering no immediate benefit if any benefit at all from playing them, the only creature I would say that is some what viable in modern is Rakdos Cackler though it's not fantastic by any means. Army of the Damned is not even remotely playable in an aggro deck at 8cmc. Bone Splinters is card disadvantage as you are essentially paying the cost of 2 cards in order to remove an opponents creature at sorcery speed. duress isn't terrible but it is situational and there are more efficient hand disruption spells in the format such as Thoughtseize, and Inquisition of Kozilek. Your instant speed removal is conditional though not bad, there are other more effective removal options in the format such as Smother, Dismember, Go for the Throat, Victim of Night.
Here are a few cards I would recommend running in a modern mono black aggro list.
If you felt like running more of a midrange list with a higher curve then I would recommend some of the following.
possibly Gurmag Angler
possibly Lifebane Zombie

I was considering splashing white because it has much better creature removal but I wanted something very consistent, you raise a very good point and I appreciate it :D Thanks! I'd probably replace Funeral Charm for 3 Erase and my Victim of Night for Path to Exile since grixis runs Gurmag Angler which is also a zombie, but my question is should I run 22 lands if I run white? I'd obviously go for 4 Godless Shrine and 4 Marsh Flats but are basic plains necessary here?

I know it's a casual deck, but the speed just isn't fast enough with the mana curve.
Remember that Modern is a turn four format.
Also, play more Nighthawk. He beats the crap out of a lot of decks on his own. Tormented Soul is nice, but it's kind of silly :3
Nirkana Revenant isn't good in this deck, and costs a lot of money for the effect it gives you.
2x Liliana of Dark Realms is a fun card to have in this deck.
Worldslayer is too expensive. Play three Lashwrithe, trust me. I would also play Darksteel Relic due to its zero cost. This means you could have an artefact whose sole purpose is to keep the lich alive. You can play three of these.
For a substitute to your tutors, we'll use board wipes. 2x Life's Finale will give you that killing potential you may need to get out of a hard place.

I'm playing Faeries as one of my decks right now. This looks pretty good, a few thoughts.
I'm actually running a higher percentage of basics. This is in part due to the fact that Blood Moon is prevalent and it's easier to get hated out otherwise. If they drop BM turn three and you've got only nonbasics it's almost guaranteed GG.
I kind of like Go for the Throat over Victim of Night, but I guess that's a call on how much affinity is in your meta. There's really only one guy who plays it consistently in mine. I run Hurkyl's Recall in the side to deal with him. It also helps with Tron and Lantern Control, although that's a fringe deck.
I'm running two Tectonic Edge because of the high prevalence of man lands right now.
