PS:

As you've probably seen these cards are almost all also featured in my Tariel deck. Thing is, depending on budget, you can improve further. There's always the more expensive rocks -> Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Lion's Eye Diamond aso.. or the expensive Tutors Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor aso..

Thinking about mono-b, Cabal Coffers came also to mind, plus it's searchable with Expedition Map . But even a better choice for you'd be Magus of the Coffers , since he's also a creature. Reanimating him with Whisper EoT gives him pseudo-haste, which is also nice.

Okay, i found a few things i'd take out:

MINUS

  • Endless Atlas Black has way better options to draw cards.
  • Underworld Connections Is funny, as you can enchant your opponents lands, but i don't think that was the plan here. Generally slows you down by 1 mana when used, which is bad, even with untapping effects, it's still not good.
  • Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip This also slows you down a lot and pays off way too late.
  • Dark Prophecy Your opponents can pretty much always see this coming, and it relies on a setup.
  • Priest of Forgotten Gods Also slow and relying on a dozen conditions, is a creature though.
  • The Elderspell You're not running PWs, so you can't fully make use of it's effects.
  • Abhorrent Overlord Sadly it's not devotion for colorless :(
  • Inverter of Truth I know this guy's an eldrazi, but this is sort of anti-synergetic with your deck.

Here's the cards i'd take in.

This is some of the best carddraw black has to offer and in the entire game, makes your deck faster and more consistent in getting these eldrazi running:

PLUS

Depending on your playgroup and since you mentioned liking long games, here's a favorite when you've got trouble dealing with that combo.deck:

Sadistic Sacrament or Hymn to Tourach

Hope that helped ;)

Enral Usually as you hit your 3rd land you're fine, this is sort of the critical landdrop, if you're not drawing a rock.

As soon as you got the 3rd you can start playing cards like Painful Truths , Read the Bones or Honor the God-Pharaoh and a few are even cheaper as Cathartic Reunion , Faithless Looting and Night's Whisper . You can also use tutors like Demonic Tutor for a land like Ancient Tomb and you're good for 2 turns, or if you're just desperate for a landdrop. These cantrip, tutor and carddrawspells provide that you can keep on playing a land each turn.

Checkout my custom ordering, the cards mentioned are listed at ★ FILTER ★, ★ CARD-ADVANTAGE ★ and ★ TUTOR ★. All cards providing ritual like boosts are listed at ★ RITUALS ★. Some of these are reusable, some not. Adding up to a total of about 35 cards i can make sure i can follow the plan.

@Qolorful I get the fear of an Avacyn or indestructible in general, currently there's only Swords to Plowshares in the deck to out me out of this one, which can also be reused from the grave. Since she's not omnipresent in my meta, it's fine. Thinking about it, it might be a good idea to change StP for Anguished Unmaking , more options, though also more expensive cmc wise. I guess there's only trying, i'll see how it plays out. I think this might be a good call!

QolorfulThanks, excited to hear how it turns out. It's quite the challenge building Mardu without going goodstuff.deck or combo.deck and sticking to a theme or smthg ;)

I'm still struggling with Anguished Unmaking though, you can remove almost anything at instant speed, but... it exiles. Which is sad, i want these creatures in the grave, not in exile. Replacing something like Return to Dust is considerable, but usually you can get a bit more out of RtD or Crush Contraband . Not sure what else to replace it with, ideas?

@SufferFromEDHDOh, that's nice, kind of like "everyone using it gets a sword, but i also get a dagger" each time it triggers. Also highliy unlikely someone removes it, makes it more likely i get to use it too. Very positive that it's not too hard on the milling or discardside of effects and i get to filter my hand a bit too. I'll try this instead of Wild Guess .

Your list looks fun too, people should check it out, more love for Tariel <3

Qolorful I want to be as consistent as possible in what i do with this deck. Tutors are a great way to add consistency and it feels right using them as it's not instantly winning the game for you(no alt wincon or combo.deck). Tariel is just a super wonky and thematic commander, that's also the main reason it's been fun building the deck with a focus on her and the mentioned limitations. Anything beyond 7-8 would not suit my idea here, you want to rip creatures from your opponents graves and enjoy a nice game of commander :)

oops, i totally forgot mentioning that my playgroup houserule banned Sol Ring , if you wanna build the deck you should totally add it. Well few of the rocks have a pretty steep pricetag, should'nt keep you from playing the deck though. You can always run the other rocks, like Thought Vessel or signets, make adjustments as you see fit, also if your playgroup is fine with it, go with the gold bordered stuff(is way more affordable).

You can replace a lot of cards with budget alternatives, Tariel is an amazingly fun and challenging to build around commander, don't miss out on her and thanks for the feedback!

@ClownCombatYh, currently it's only for fixing. I might throw in a Cabal Coffers again, thinking about it, it's not like i'm lacking tutors. I'll test and see how it plays out. Thanks!

Also thanks for all the upvotes! Super happy people like my weird deckideas :D

This is awesome! He's becoming a real Azusa, Lost but Seeking with Summer Bloom . Nice deck!

June 5, 2019 5:37 p.m.

@DemonDragonJ Thanks, most of my decks run around that many lands, depending on the number of filter/cantrip( Cathartic Reunion , Sensei's Divining Top ), carddraw( Night's Whisper , Painful Truths ) and manarocks/rituals( Mana Crypt , Seething Song ) you play, you can trim down the number of lands by a lot. Makes your decks look more the same in terms of deckbuilding but helps immensely not beeing screwed or flooded. Sometimes you have to Demonic Tutor for a land, but this is more of a last resort. When it comes to building a manabase, i can highly recommend looking a bit into competetive EDH and testing.

Also the initial idea behind running the reanimator spells ist to avoid high casting costs as Tariel's.

June 5, 2019 3:09 a.m.

@Chhris Thanks, autocorrect though? As in Tauriel, Reckoner of Elves? :D

June 4, 2019 6:49 a.m.

For some reason, i couldn't edit the post before, so:

If my meta shifts towards people using more extra turns, Ugin's Nexus can shine with it's first ability. Otherwise i think it's a bit too much commitment.

On a second thought Stonecloaker in addition to being disruption, can also be a nice protection for Tariel. I'll see if i can make a cut. Though recasting for a full CMC7 is gonna set me back a turn, most of the time. But it's an option if Tariel runs into a Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares . Thinking about politics, this came to my mind: you can also offer giving a creature you took with Tariel back to your opponent's hand. Nice!

June 3, 2019 7:35 p.m.

You're totally right about Reito Lantern , i think using it as a political tool is especially amazing. Will definately add this to my political decks and depending on how it performs to more decks.

Thing is, with Tariel i'm not after exiling my own grave and especially not my opponent's grave. As mentioned before, not exiling from the opponent's grave is a restriction i made to keep the ability random and for my own grave, i rather want to play spells to recast or reanimate, so i can ignore casting costs. I can totally imagine building a deck around the mirror and exiling though. Thanks a ton and keep em coming!

June 3, 2019 7:11 p.m.

[email protected]_only Thanks, came up with the Mirror while looking for cards that help getting back stuff from exile. Farie was already in as a nice free disrupt. You can use other cards, but i think the faerie is the best choice as her ability is "free".

@Frewsax Haha yeah, i was also toying around with the other colors, but for mentioned reasons decided to go and stay mono-.

June 1, 2019 10:11 a.m.

@AdNauseam12 Thanks, you should give it a try. Maybe you can find something to make it work in your meta! Hatecards is always a good start. If you got any ideas to improve, let me know.

Agree, has some super powerful cards, Tectonic Reformation will also go straight into my Chandra and Tariel deck. Basically as you're running red, this is pretty much a staple imo, you can just ditch these annoying lands whenever you want. Also great costed for just .
