Comments View Archive

This is really good, especially for it being your 1st.A few things off the top of my head that could drive home the good strategy you got going would be:Phyrexian Altar/Ashnod's AltarWhip of ErebosNether TraitorOb Nixilis, UnshackledExsanguinateBitterblossom since you have Contamination and you can sac tokens to other sac outlets too.Good luck on the deck!

Dimir Machinations Dimir House Guard Butcher of Malakir Wayfarer's Bauble Altar of the Brood Bone Shredder Netherborn Phalanx Reassembling Skeleton are all cards that are able to be cut in my opinion for any of the cards I suggested. No worries! It's a good deck, especially with the synergies you have going for it.

Black's strengths are mana ramp and tutors

Vesuva + Thespian's Stage to copy Cabal Coffers

Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Revelation (possibly).

Syphon Mind is great for multiplayer. Other card draw includes Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon for more artifact and enchantment removal

Vampire Hexmage for planeswalker removal

I really like how the deck looks, it seems like it will be pretty powerful and fun. Also, it's cool that you choose mono-black, all my favorite commander builds are mono-black.

I would maybe suggest a adding few self-discard outlets to rapidly get reanimation targets for Chainer, Dementia Master (Chainer can grab opponents' stuff, but you can't always count on them). I know you have some artifacts capable of self-milling, but often you want a little more control over what's in your graveyard. One of the best is Pack Rat because you can get value from it, but it does cost 3 mana to activate. There's also stuff like Zombie Infestation, Key to the City, and Liliana of the Veil which don't cost any mana to activate. One that I really like is Geier Reach Sanitarium, because it just takes up a land slot.

A powerful card draw engine you could include is Necropotence, but it is a bit anti-synergistic by exiling your discarded creatures. You'll have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of including it, but you could still add new reanimation targets to your graveyard via your self-mill with Necropotence out.
