A mono-black standard using a few cards that I personally think are excellent, like Torment of Hailfire

I have managed to get the X to 12 on turn 6, so basically an instant death one way or the other for your opponent

You could cut 3 swamp and 1 forest for 4 Aether Hub. More energy synergy and it plays well in multicolor decks. Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip would be an interesting 1 or 2 of as well. When it flips it gives you even more mana fuel for Hailfire. I think you should try 4 Fatal Pushes and only one Never though too, you still have the two Walk the Planks and Vraskas contempts to fight off larger creatures and planeswalkers. Maybe try out Rites in the sideboard, slot it in place of 2 Harvest Season. If it works effectively you'll get more push out of it, a tutor and mana ramp. Just an idea. Good deck!

PickleNutz True! Im going to put it in at some point for sure but Im poor and this is a bit of a stretch as is. But I already traded for the three pushes, and I have on Vraska's Contempt. Im going to def over time upgrade this so its the best it can be, thanks for the upvote and suggestion!

Torment of Scarabs is really strong in a deck built around Torment of Hailfire. If I may suggest add in Harsh Scrutiny Duress and Lay Bare the Heart so your opponent has no cards to discard. There is a new flip card that is a land and lets you copy spells if you spent mana from it to cast it. Say you cast a torment with x being 5, if you used that land they have to do it for 10. It is pretty useful in this type of strategy. You may want to tinker with eithet blue or red as the other color instead of green. I like the idea of a golgari torment deck, but the color lacks ramp(actual ramp like Rampant Growth Cultivate and Explosive Vegetation) so the other 2 may prove more useful. Blue has bounce effects counters and draw all of which could be very useful. Strictly better mtg on youtube made a rakdos version of this deck that seemed to play pretty well since Shock and Lightning Strike tend to make losing life less appealing. Just my thoughts, I am sure this deck will play fine in its current form.

Hyperalgialysis Originally the deck was built like that, but I think this version of the deck is more powerful. With Growing Rites I can get a turn 6, X to 16 or more, so even IF they somehow manage to survive that, they will die to my creatures the next turn

Is this the deck for which you said "the description is pretty detailed"?

Just wondering because to me THIS is a detailed description:
Ahoy, Me Hearties!

Not trying to be mean, just a bit confused.

Argy I scrapped it and rebuilt it (deleted the description) and Ive been sick, and just not up to thinking critically, though at some point the description will be better.

No worries.

Tag me in these comments when you've adjusted it, and I'll pop back and take a closer look.
