Well, in my list I also run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers/Cabal Stronghold + Deserted Temple + Thespian's Stage so it might be possible to use it more than once each turn. I will have to test it. But it also makes Torment of Hailfire really dangerous in the late-game.

Instead of Cabal Stronghold, you should copy Cabal Coffers with Thespian's Stage and Vesuva and Mirage Mirror and untap one of them with Deserted Temple

I got the idea to build a Syr Konrad, the Grim Mill deck from a Commander’s Quarters video, and decided to build a non-budgeted version..

I’ve since built it from the ground-up, but now I need to cut a few cards to make it an even 100..

(P.S - I’ll slot in a Cabal Coffers/Cabal Stronghold later)

You could add Cabal Stronghold and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , but the latter is a little spendy and without it Cabal Stronghold isn't very good. I think it would help for casting Dark Salvation .

Plz forgive if this is a stupid thing to ask: Is synergy a must have for competitive play? I’ve had mixed results with this mono black aggro deck over the past 5 or 6 weeks. Any comments/criticisms from anyone more experienced than me (everyone ha!) are appreciated.


1 drop - Pilfering Imp x2 - Vampire of the Dire Moon x3 - Foulmire Knight x3 - Banehound x4

2 drop - Order of Midnight x2

3 drop - Midnight Reaper x2 - Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Bloodthirsty Aerialist x2 - Murderous Rider x3

3*/4 drop - Spawn of Mayhem x3 - Rankle, Master of Pranks x2


- Fatal Push x4 - Thoughtseize x2 - Duress - Despise - Ultimate Price


- Swamp x18 - Mutavault x2 - Cabal Stronghold - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Rogue's Passage - Fabled Passage

Sideboard is a couple more removals, green countermeasures, and planeswalker removals

If this was a stupid question, I’m sorry for spam. TY for taking the time to read.

I'm not sure why you wouldn't run field wipes like Damnation , Toxic Deluge , Languish , Mutilate , etc. given your field wiping goals.

I imagine Cabal Stronghold might be up your alley. Lashwrithe is just a fun an efficient beater in black that works with any of your small guys as well. Heck, as a control deck Empowered Autogenerator should keep your high curved sated in time. Mind Sludge seems like reasonably powerful discard power.

Given this is control idk why you wouldn't have draw power such as Phyrexian Arena , or even Underworld Connections , Coercive Portal . Ob Nixilis Reignited even serves those goals with some removal splashed in.

Generally efficient options like Dismember and Go for the Throat exist as well for spot removal.

Liking the low budget. I've a few suggestions:

- Never/Return

- Dreadhorde Invasion

- Victim of Night

You probably don't need Cabal Stronghold . Not generating and not being a swamp for your "# of swamps" spells is a significant drawback. The only use for the extra mana I can see is Dread Shade which itself is a reason to want all black sources. Witch's Cottage could be a reasonable replacement.

Yea I like Scion of Darkness a lot and I have him in a Storevv EDH deck. I wonder if Cabal Stronghold would be a budget option if more basics were used and Tectonic Reformation could be relied upon more. I have to make a deck like this now!
