There is no point of cavern in this deck. It's one color

It can't be countered, and it's a tribal deck. That's enough to have it in there.

I much prefer Indulgent Aristocrat or Gifted Aetherborn to Kalastria Highborn for the area buff and ability to stall out games with lifegain, because I find the mana investment difficult to keep up, and rarely impactful enough to run over Blood Artist. Indulgent also has some nice bloodghast synergy.

If you wanna look up sideboard options or other funstuff, Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my toolbox for decks like this. Everlasting Torment, Storage Matrix and Ratchet Bomb are my current preferred sideboard choices, but it really is meta-dependant.

I love mono black Vampires! I'd suggest Adding a gatekeeper and cut a Lacerator, cut Hexmage to sideboard, cut 2 swamps/lands and add 2-4 Aetherborn Vampire. Quag Vampires would work well too.

Gifted Aetherborn is what I meant

I second removing Kalastria Highborn and siding Vampire Hexmage in favor for Blood Artist. Artist triggers when any creature dies, and his ability doesn't need mana. Hexmage feels too situational.

Also, perhaps some fetches to abuse Bloodghast's ability? I think Bloodstained Mire isn't terribly expensive, so I'd recommend a playset.

Solid deck!

My question would be, what is your purpose with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth? Is it to make Cavern of Souls and Mutavault swamps? If that is its only purpose, you could pull unwarranted hate just due to the fact they think you have swampwalk. If it's 1v1 I understand there is hate regardless, but in a multiplayer game it can end poorly. I would even just put in another swamp for that to save you hate and money if it serves no other purpose. Other than that, great deck list!

The purpose of Urborg is that you can hold onto your fetches until you either need red or need to force a shuffle/landfall. It's a contingency plan.

Oh, wait, no fetches, monoblack... I say get some fetches as soon as you can. They're good for consistency even in monocolor. Also, I'd ditch victim of night for more fatal push. Best creature hate in modern currently.

If I have more advice to offer, I'd say drop the blades for 1-2 more Thoughtseize and possibly try out Collective Brutality as a one-of.

Opifex Need some more time to check all the cards and make one. Will add it soon!

Ran a few tests... I like it. It flows very similar to a monoblack version of my deck after my recent changes. Wins on turn 4-6.

I could see running 4x Collective Brutality. That card is devastating in a variety of matches. How's the blade been so far?

July 23, 2017 11:37 p.m.

rooroothepirate The blade is pretty good. I know when you look at the deck it seems like it is the best card to trade but the blade triggers everytime a creature an opponent control dies.

So basically everytime I cast a gatekepper or another removal one of my creatures gets +2/+2.

I think I would rather have 2x blades in this deck and only 2x Collective Brutalitys

Thanks for all the suggestions!
