If they ever did, it would resemble Nyx Lotus and Cabal Stronghold in how they balance the ability and how useful it is.

First, welcome to the club!

As far as lands go, if you have some money lying around that you need to get rid of, Cabal Stronghold might help. If you have a lot of money lying around, Cabal Coffers . Piranha Marsh and Leechridden Swamp are also simple triggers for the Sanguine Bond - Exquisite Blood loop. Are you building to a specific format?

I see the direction this deck is going in, but it's got a lot of moving parts, and those moving parts need to come down in a pretty tight order. The Avatar of Woe branch is also reliant on the opponent(s) playing a lot of creatures. Overall, this deck has a lot of components that are simply out of your control.

I'm not trying to discourage you, or say that this deck is useless. It's got a good core and good intentions. The first step to improvement would be to streamline it.

Popped in off reddit.

Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , Dark Ritual , plus some of the other mentioned rocks in the reddit comment section.

Crypt Ghast , Nirkana Revenant are amazing. Cabal Stronghold is great, too, although Cabal Coffers and Lake of the Dead are much better if you happen to have a couple hundred lying around.

Definitely pick up some more spot removal such as Doom Blade , Cast Down , etc. Other than that, maybe a few more card draw spells. Read the Bones is amazing.

After that, you just need to tune it to your liking.

Given the lack of basic swamps, I would suggest Cabal Coffers over Cabal Stronghold . Otherwise good deck here. Also please rate and/or comment on my Dralnu deck, Dralnu Oracle Consultation.

Metroid_Hybrid: Great advice, and I can't believe I forgot about Cabal Stronghold . =D

As far as Thought Vessel , I'm simply out of them for now. And Rite of Consumption is a great idea for a surprise finish, but it looks like I don't have any. I'll get one eventually.

Now for infect, well, good idea, but my playgroup doesn't really play any infect... like, at all. Which is too bad, but ce la vie.

I also checked out your deck and got a few more ideas from it, so thanks for stopping by!

I have a mean Mono-Black Voltron deck myself.. Mine is Commanded by Yargle, but most of the same rules apply..

First, the obligatory suggestion of Cabal Stronghold (and Cabal Coffers if budget allows)..

Secondly, most of your "Overkill" list (save for Ob Nixilis & Sorin) is pure chaff. None of it serves the goal of delivering lethal Commander-damage, whatsoever. I suggest you just drop them in favor of a mix of more "Reanimator" spells, a Thought Vessel , and even more draw...


You might be interested in Rite of Consumption in particular...

Something else to consider, is the subject of Infect ( Tainted Strike , Phyresis , & Grafted Exoskeleton )
