Mono Black Drain & OTK

Commander / EDH Mono-Black



WORK IN PROGRESS - This deck is in it's infancy.

Basic idea is to set up fun otk's while draining the opponent and attempting to make them loose life in increments of 1/2.

All input appreciated and welcome.

Seeking input on combos & synergies in mono black that are not in the list, or general insights on improving general performance / value.

I'll start a list of the cards that combo, synergize, or serve the same basic effect together below (I might miss a few obvious, or not so obvious pairings):


Virtus the Veiled + Ebonblade Reaper + Raving Dead + Blood Tribute Temporal Extortion + Peer into the Abyss + Quietus Spike

Wound Reflection + Archfiend of Despair

Sanguine Bond + Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose

Cabal Coffers + Cabal Stronghold

Crypt Ghast + Nirkana Revenant

CARDS THAT COMBO OR SYNERGIZE (refer to above list for interchangability)

Virtus the Veiled + Wound Reflection

Virtus the Veiled + Fireshrieker

Ayara, First of Locthwain + Plague of Vermin

Augur of Skulls + Black Market

Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension

Bloodchief Ascension + Peer into the Abyss at opponent's end step

Peer into the Abyss + Underworld Dreams

Banshee + Basilisk Collar Combos with Sanguine, and synergizes with Exquisite effects
