nice deck! if you're wanting to make this into a full 60 card standard deck i would definitely decide on a single win-con path and have a back up or two. in my experience with dominaria The Antiquities War is great for artifact matters decks, but i would use it as a plan b. you already have a lot of historic synergy going on so i would capitalize on that. definitely run at least 2 Zahid, Djinn of the Lamps, run either 4 or 0 Powerstone Shards, and take out the Syncopates unless you're going full control. liking the Time of Ice as interaction, it's a really underrated card tbh. if you'd like i made a similar deck around the powerstones (here: Cherub Rock [Powerstone Combo]), i think the decks are trying to do similar things. hope this helped and that all is well.

i love this deck! built a similar budget mono-blue build (found here:Cherub Rock [Powerstone Combo]) that uses the same combo. just found this deck in the recommended section after i posted it and i really like your spin on etb triggers and convertible win cons in the sideboard. are you considering building this in paper? i think it would throw a lot of players off at an fnm, i'm gonna try to this coming friday at least. honestly if you're not working on a budget i would just throw 1 or 2 more Karn, Scion of Urzas in the mainboard for consistency. hope all goes well!

hey Sargeras i've been working on this standard mono black deck for a bit with some cards i had around, what do you think?

Sargeras thank you again for the feedback! I think I managed to craft the deck into something playable using your templates. Decided to keep the Belzenlok combo/theme cause i honestly just like the card. I am building a standard version of this deck focused around Dread Shade and would love your feedback on that too if you don't mind! You've been a lot of help thank you again dude.

I tried to make this in modern originally but found it just can't compete, however, since Dominaria came out I'm super excited to play around with this archetype in standard. Currently trying to play around with the proper mixture of creatures, artifacts, auras, and interaction. I really like your build and I'll try to emulate it for this week's fnm!

thanks so much Purple_Mage. i'll play around with those indestructible methods, but currently i've found the biggest problem is enchantment/exile removal not damage. you are right though Tragic Poet isn't performing like i thought she would. at first i just wanted to have a creature on turn one instead of the swords in some cases. i know it sounds stupid but what do you think of replacing her with Fanatical Firebrand? i really don't want to go below 20 creatures cause then i'm even more susceptible to removal. the only good thing about poet was that she allowed me to use her as a back up voltron pilot then sack her when it was time to rebuild. rn my own removal relies solely on Seal Away and just forcing the opponent to chump block. i have another week till the next fnm so lmk!

hey Obverse thanks for the heads up. i didn't even realize the deck was more than 60 till you said anything. since i've also revamped the sideboard with some cards i found, Legion's Landing Flip, to make it adhere more to my local meta. i've found in play testing that the legendary creature thing isn't much of a drawback, since removal is such a big part of this format i can just replace the one that got taken out. i'm thinking about making multiple versions of this deck though so i'll definitely try some of your suggestions!

that's actually really cool! i never even thought about Death Cloud but yeah that ramp would be insane. I just have a foil Cabal Stronghold and a couple Dread Shades and am trying to build my own modern mono black deck. I really appreciate this primer for something to work towards.
