Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox

Modern* Mono-Black Netdeck


Creature (74)


I see a lot of people throwing together mono black builds using a ton of stuff, and I keep finding myself making suggestions, so I decided to put together a deckbuilders toolbox for mono black builders like myself. I'll tidy it up and flesh it out as time passes. I've probably missed a heap of stuff- feel free to comment. Ahmonket updates incoming soon. Big changes for zombie and minotaur tribals, as well as other fun tools.

Necropotence and Griselbrand would be good to add to this, depending on format.

Nice shouts Penthoplayer, this is intended for modern- I don't feel confident in my understanding of the less restricted formats to reccomend cards that aren't big names. Missed Griselbrand cause I was basing this on my own mono-black tinkering, and I haven't seen much that can consistantly power him out. black devotion might make it, but a few night's whisper/sign in blood has usually worked better. I guess there might be some reanimator lists that can make it work.

Nice resource. I'm gonna add this to my Obscure List of Obscure Lists, if you don't mind.

Thanks for making this. =)

I think that Scarscale Ritual is a underrated card: draw 2 at cc2 and can reset the Undying ability.

Interesting choice for when Night's Whisper isn't better- I'd feel more comfortable including it in a U/B list which suffered mana problems but it could have a place so I'll add it. something with Black Sun's Zenith/Everlasting Torment/Necroskitter I guess.

Nice list! My 2 cents:

Shizo, Death's Storehouse. A swamp with benefits.

Lost Legacy. Nice combo break.

Street Wraith and Crypt of Agadeem might be worth adding.

I can't quite believe I missed them- I'm updating it now, and wondering about devotion/unearth deck viability.
