So this is a deck that I came up with and have been using with some success at FNM. Any suggestions or recommendations would be helpful.
This is a mono-black control deck. Essentially early game is causing opponent to discard cards and creature removal and transitions into creatures that either attack the hand, make the opponent sacrifice a creature, or allow card draw.
I'd cut Griselbrand , Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis , Staff of Nin and Sword of Feast and Famine to begin with. I'd also increase the amount of Lashwrithe s to four, making that the primary way of destroying the opponent. I've had a lot of experience playing against this deck Lashwrithe on a Vampire Nighthawk is absolutely brutal. A lot of people also throw in a couple of Inkmoth Nexus es and equip it to that. You should also take out the Ravenous Rats . All of the time it appears, the opponent is going to discard their worst card and you're left with a costly 1/1. The Black Cat s should also be taken out. Again, they don't do enough for you. You should include 2 copies of Xathrid Gorgon . It's repeatable 'removal' and a solid wall. Also, with so few creatures, you should run another Mutilate and max out on Sign in Blood .
Hope this helps!
