Mono-Black Discard

Standard* Control Discard Mono-Black

nikheizen Score: 14


Description

Mono-Black Discard.
With the release of Return to Ravnica, a lot of multicoloured decks have been flooding, well, everywhere. I thought that in this environment, a fast, single coloured control-lockdown deck would do quite well for itself. So I built a mono-black discard deck, using the card Shrieking Affliction as a main method of killing my opponent, along with beatdown from Geralf's Messenger and Desecration Demon if need be.
Thoughts and comments welcome!

Updates

This is the final version of the Mono-Black edition of this deck that I'll be building once I've acquired all the cards. It does very well and I really enjoy playing it. Thank you for all your comments, critique, and advice!

Really great deck idea. +1 from me! I'm loving the mono-black. A few things that stood out to me while playtesting was sometimes I wouldn't have a sac outlet for card:Altar's Reap and I would be left open to attacks, Lotleth Troll with Rancor on turn 3-4 hurts to much. Have you considered splashing Plains for cards such as Doomed Traveler and/or Lingering Souls ? Also, I'm aware that card:Grafdigger's Cage is in the sideboard, but how do you deal with strong Reanimator Decks? Ones that can turn 4-5, or if assisted by Liliana of the Veil and discard an Unburial Rites to flashback for a Griselbrand , Angel of Serenity or Stormtide Leviathan ? I see that you do have a lot of spot removal, but if they can Unburial Rites it again, what could you do? No bashing on the deck, I think its great, just giving my 2. I look forward to seeing your reply!

I forgot to add Mind Rot , being a great 3CMC 2 discard card, is there a specific reason you're not running it?
