Hi everyone, this is my mono-Black standard deck!!

With this deck, I'm going for an aggressive combination of creatures (lifeline, deathtouch, etc.) with curses to make the opponent sacrifice creatures and discard cards.

My low-mana creatures like Ammit Eternal and Bone Picker (when a creature dies) work to give a good early game, with Gifted Aetherborn being one of the best to draw in your starting hand. Gonti, Lord of Luxury is great too, stealing a card from the other player for your advantage and altering the top of their deck. In the late-game, an eternal Dreamstealer should massively diminish the opponent's hand and Nightmare can deal amazing damage equal to the amount of swamps on my board. Bontu's Monument makes it easier to bring creatures out while also gives a bit of life steal, and Rush of Vitality is in to protect creatures.

Spells like Trial of Ambition, Doomfall and Cruel Reality in the late-game are wonderful to alter the opponent's board and hand. If I had a million dollars I'd also add in some Fatal Push, but for now they're on the maybeboard.

In the sideboard, I've put some Scarab Feast to deal with embalm/eternal decks and other graveyard threats.

Thanks everyone, any help/suggestions would be much appreciated :D

Fatal Push to deal with early threats if you can get the card. Otherwise, looks pretty good. I forgot Nightmare was in Standard!

Liliana, Death's Majesty > then that liliana. Also probably replace Nightmare with Demon of Dark Schemes more consistent and does something when it enters which is very important as a 6 drop
