If the Goblin deck is krenko Virulent Plague is a nasty tech card; it also deals with most kiki-jiki combos.

Had some painful non-bo experiences today. Thrilling Encore isn't that good with Anafenza exiling their stuff. Probably better off with something like Make a Stand.

Plague of Vermin helped them more than it hurt. Although I gave my guys trample, their Soul Warden and Mycoloth equalized my alpha strike. I could really use a one-sided Ascendant Evincar of some kind. I was thinking of Amulet of Safekeeping, although it nerfs Ogre Slumlord. I might have to go full anti-token with Virulent Plague.

I'm leaning too hard on Merciless Eviction to undo a fortress. I could use a Nev Disk or even Purify. I also need a way to break through with my developed rat army, so I'm considering AEther Shockwave. I also need to reuse a non-rat card, possibly just add Regrowth.

Metroid_Hybrid on Mono-Black Wishboard?

I am strongly considering slotting a Mastermind's Acquisition into a pair of Mono-Black decks that I have..

I’ve already asked the owner of the LGS that I generally play at about the card, and he told me that a 15-card Sideboard would be perfectly acceptable..

So, that being said, my question here is this: What are the 15 best, situationally powerful (but otherwise useless), Artifact and/or Mono-Black cards for a Mono-Black Sideboard/“Wishboard”?

Examples: Virulent Plague vs a table full of tokens, Extirpate vs Shadowborn Apostle/Relentless Rats, Tainted Remedy vs Lifegain decks, a Pithing Needle for shutting off a particular Wincon, or maybe even Artificer's Hex vs most Voltron builds, etc..

mattc1uk Illness in the Ranks and Virulent Plague do not target the creature.

I realized I need to make one minor and subtle, but massively powerful change.

Whenever a creature is put into a graveyard from anywhere, you may create a 2/2 black Zombie creature token.

Without that, Virulent Plague creates an actual infinite cycle that can not be broken if a player doesn't have some sort of Instant-speed removal / ability. This is because the token would be created, would die, and would be created again infinitely.

So yes, "you may" is 100% essential here.

The second part doesn't matter so much, but might as well include it there too for consistency sake.

what about Illness in the Ranks or Virulent Plague? could help make sure you don't get overrun by their tokens.
