Nice deck, seems a little slow maybe add in some one or two drops. I have a similar deck just geared a little more towards aggro you should take a look, it's called Zombie Obliterator it might give you a idea or two. But you have a pretty neat deck +1.

i really like the curve of this deck, and the simple mana base makes me as giddy as a schoolgirl. truly you are a skilled deckbuilder. no, not deckbuilder, deck ARTIST!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but since Mirran Crusader has pro-black, you can't kill it with a Black Sun's Zenith, true? I just saw that you have BSZ as a killspell for the Crusader in your description and got curious.
March 13, 2012 7:24 p.m.
Black Sun's Zenith does not target a specific creature so it will kill Mirran Crusader even when he is pro black. Its like if i played Day of Judgment that would also kill Phyrexian Crusader despite him being pro white.
March 14, 2012 5:19 p.m.
And the -1/-1 counters themselves are not black, the spell is. Since it doesn't target the counters still go on him.

I have a very similar deck,but by judging by your huge description, it seems you know what you are doing but i might as well recommend Phyrexian Metamorph I am personally not a huge fan of him, but i have had dozens of people recommend him to me for my mono black deck.
March 14, 2012 5:53 p.m.
He is good for getting legendary creatures especially hexproof ones. I haven't really had many problems with them. usually just because i have bigger creatures out like the obliterator.
March 14, 2012 7:41 p.m.
Very neat deck bro...i like the Spellskite stall, but you may have problems against most wolf run decks...
Btw if you want a challenge play it against this Virtue of sorin
March 17, 2012 8:34 p.m.
Actually, it does great against wolf run ramp decks! obliterator stalls anything that wants to ramp because of extra damage to obliterator and vault skirge's with lashwriths effectively deal with inkmoth. What ive found this deck sometimes struggles with is token decks can be to fast. Usually i just need to be smart about mulligans and do some sideboarding for stuff like ratchet bomb.
March 17, 2012 8:49 p.m.
Yeah....that totally makes sense i guess...knowing when to mulligan is the hardest part of magic...lol
This deck is really solid...what about green white humans with Angelic Destiny honestly that deck just scares me lol, but i was lucky yesterday, and didn't have to play it.
March 17, 2012 9:01 p.m.
I'll try it out against the sorin token deck and see how it does! I've got a sorin token deck and it usually is about 50/50 with that deck. Yours is probably better though, so it should be more of a match. :)
March 17, 2012 9:02 p.m.
Usually its not a problem with kill spells and if im really lucky i can despise it out of them turn 1 :) but if they get 2 creatures with angelic destiny it can often be too much, usually then it is a race with me with an obliterator with a lashwrite attached attacking at the same time.

March 19, 2012 12:12 a.m.
yeah Mirran Crusader just is sooooo nasty with a destiny...i think just about anything "pro" are the best cards in the game.

I Like this deck quite a bit so +1 from me. I do have a thing I would like to share though. As much as I used to love Royal Assassin, he isn't all that great anymore in today's standard, so I would like to share my input on swapping him out with something slightly better such as Skirsdag High Priest, He is a decent card if you can trigger morbid. I would like you to check out my deck for a Mono Black Morbid Destroy, you may find an idea or two, if not I'm always open for constructive criticism. Thanks.
March 19, 2012 4:43 a.m.
Thanks for the input and I agree, This was working better before dark ascension came out, Tragic Slip kills him often now. Thing was i needed a 3 drop. I will probably replace them with geraf's messenger not sure how well that will work yet though, need to play test it.
March 19, 2012 11:52 a.m.
You could always throw in Phyrexian Crusader, not only as a 3 CMC creature, but also can be used as a chump block against red and white? Just a thought
March 19, 2012 6:46 p.m.
I've tried, he does not progress the deck at all, and he doesn't stop the crusader or fliers. the messenger helps put more pressure on earlier with damage. If only he weren't infect.
March 19, 2012 8:05 p.m.
nice deck! +1 check out my take deck:metal-obliterator

In my meta there are 3 tempered steel decks still played and no tribal deck except aggro zombie, but maybe. I'll think about it.
March 23, 2012 1:05 a.m.
I think Go for the Throat main board is probably one of the best spot-removal spells out there simply because it gets rid if anything except for Phyrexian Metamorph and Wurmcoil Engine. Except Tempered Steel decks of course.
March 23, 2012 2:18 a.m.
question for everybody, I'm thinking about taking out the geralf's messengers for two more kill spells. Thoughts? They would probably be go for the throat. I just don't think geralf's messenger progresses the deck at all.
March 23, 2012 11:32 a.m.
March 25, 2012 2:48 p.m.
Thats a good point, how many do you think should be added, 3 or 4?

I don't know if you'd go for this, but why not sideboard 2 Surgical Extraction's and place in 2 Unburial Rites? And play 2 Isolated Chapel's in place of 2 swamps. That's just in case your field gets wiped by DoJ or something and you can bring Oblitorator back? Just a quick thought.
April 4, 2012 8:38 p.m.
nah, all you have to do is play smart, if you have an obliterator on the field with a lashwrite you don't need to play another. Play based on what they have on the board, I would have rather have the surgicals hurt both their deck/hand and see what deck they as fast as possible so i can know what to play and what to sideboard for future games.
April 4, 2012 8:56 p.m.
I think u should put back in Geralf's Messenger, it's so resistant to wrath and removal, and is a auto include in almost any mono black deck. If not, since this is quite a control deck, Liliana of the Veil seems good, for both the -2 and the +1.

Nice deck check out myn its something similar to urs only its eldrazi I can keep my opponents away with languish keeps token decks away I'd recommend languish its a solid
June 2, 2016 3:45 p.m.
I ran my deck extremely similar to this for a long time until I played a more focused 8-rack deck, I really recommend the change. phyrexian obliterator is way too nice.
