Artificer Lich Mono Black

Standard*

Score: 3


Description

The main idea for this deck is to control the board and eventually get a Phylachtery Lich resolved and then beat down. The deck has a few combos the main one being putting a Phylactery counter on Worldslayer and managing to hit my opponent which destroys everything except for my Lich. I am on a slight budget so I don't really want to add play sets of crazy expensive cards.

I did manage to open up Liliana of the Dark Realms so I am considering adding 1 more and then maybe a few Consume Spirit but I'm not really sure.

I would really like help with my sideboard but any suggestions will be helpful.

Grafted Exoskeleton and Nim Deathmantle are amazing in decks with Phyl (as I affectionately call the Lich)

If I were to build a deck for Phylactery Lich , I'd run a base of living-weapon equipment such as Flayer Husk , Mortarpod , Lashwrithe , and perhaps Batterskull

Also, for the record, Phylactery Lich can be sent to the graveyard by things like Dismember and Tragic Slip . indestructible doesn't prevent things from going to the graveyard due to having 0 toughness.

I'd also run Phyrexian Metamorph as it seems that the lich do better when there are multiples of them.

Phyrexian Metamorph will also be an artifact, and if it copy's a lich, it will be an indestructible artifact.

I would suggest Stuffy Doll , put a counter and her, and both are indestructible. just a thought.

Trading Post is a great card for artifact decks

Inkmoth Nexus is great with Phylactery Lich . Tap Ink to pay for itself, and play Lich, put counter on Ink and it turns back to land good combo.
