Braids, Cabal Minion Discussion

berryjon that is an absurd request. you never mentioned anything about "mono black" (or mono any other color for that matter) until now. if you want to play a mono colored deck while full well knowing its weaknesses, thats your own fault. and the "no dipping into artifacts" restriction is also absurd. even a mono black deck can use Universal Solvent .
that being said, i'll acquiesce your request just to prove a point. here are mono black cards that can get rid of artifacts.
these are just the ones that mention artifacts specifically, but theres also the plethora of discard spells you can use to pluck out the Vedalken Orrery before your opponent even plays it. i could also get into the colorless nonartifacts that can remove artifacts, such as Scour from Existence , which technically meets your requirements of "no dipping into other colors or artifacts themselves".
and last but not least, i also found multiple "enchant artifact" enchantments that deal automatic free damage to the controller of the enchanted artifact during their upkeep. so lets not pretend mono black doesn't have answers.
by asking me to show you examples of monoblack artifact removal, you're basically saying that "if a mono colored deck can't answer a thing, we should ban the thing". thats ridiculous.

Really happy to see so many people wanting Braids, Cabal Minion unbanned. She's my favorite commander in duel(1v1 french banlist). But with the current banlist for multiplayer and all the fastmana, she's super busted.
In duel you can get her out usually on turn 3 and there's a lot of spotremoval in the format and overall meta, also just 20 lifepoints.
Having her unbanned with all the fastmana and 40 lifepoints would lead to games taking forever.
If you're intrested in a competetive approach:

Here's some thoughts on it:
Unban: Ancestral Recall , Balance the Moxes, Biorhythm , Braids, Cabal Minion , Coalition Victory , Primeval Titan , Sway of the Stars , Erayo, Soratami Ascendant , Library of Alexandria , Recurring Nightmare , Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , Griselbrand , Prophet of Kruphix and Tolarian Academy
All of these cards are strong, but there's so many answers to them now that they can all easily be beaten. Also if someone successfully casts any of the big stuff on there without someone countering it or somehow stopping whatever degenerate thing they're doing with that card, they deserve to win probably. All of them have answers outside of removal as well, such as methods to slow them down or steal their draws.
Ban: all other cards on the banlist, Stasis
All the other cards ruin games pretty much, or at least are just completely annoying. Stasis doesn't really have an answer past enchantment destruction currently, unlike the cards I said above.

Primeval Titan would ramp you up big time, and I'll admit it's really strong, but the lands do come in tapped and it's not like Sylvan Primordial or Sundering Titan where it's blatantly destroying lands. And also, it's an obvious target. You know it would last to attack even.
Braids, Cabal Minion takes one permanent a turn and hits you too. There are much worse legendaries in mono black right now. And most decks have some token production/artifact ramp now, so it's not always gonna hit super big.
Also, fair argument for Gband to be unbanned.

Maybe one day, Braids, Cabal Minion will come back to us. I bought a foil copy just in case because it will shoot up 1000% if it ever does.

Braids, Cabal Minion would be great since you have token fodder to play with.
Erebos, God of the Dead can helm a Zombie Token / Aristrocrats deck where you apply pressure to life totals without a means of recovery
God-Eternal Bontu as a serious draw engine, though she would be better in the +99
Lim-Dul the Necromancer because Lim-Dûl the Necromancer
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is a solid Lord, but doesn't help tokens
Razaketh, the Foulblooded if you want nearly unlimited tutors
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon means you have two wincons: CD via a horde of zombies and infect in the air
Visara the Dreadful as literally a silver bullet
Yawgmoth, Thran Physician because he is solid and a nice balance between light removal and draw
