Damnation occurrence in decks from the last year
Latest Decks as Commander

Oops, I just realized a horrible lock. Merely bring back a spell such as Damnation. Wrath the board each and every single time. If your opponent(s) don't have a kill / bounce spell or a creature with haste, there's literally no defeating Bolas.
Ehh... crap. Maybe a nonland card in your graveyard gains flashback until end of turn and it's flashback cost is equal to ? That's probably a better balance. Idk. Whatever, it is what it is.

I am confused by this deck, for I do not understand its purpose. To start with, you have some some demons - big, expensive demons - and a small amount of ramp to help get them out eventually but I don't see any real synergy or payoff beyond Liliana's Contract. Many of these, as well as cards like Severed Strands, have abilities that require sacrificing other creatures but you have almost no token producers to make fodder and your other creatures seem to have been chosen to be useful when they're still alive. I would think about adding in more cheap things, preferably with a death trigger (low CMC is good for Citadel too) and maybe even Grave Pact effects if you take this further. These could replace things like Gifted Aetherborn (you have no vampire synergy and if you just want Deathtouch Foulmire Knight does that and more). Might be worth checking out some of the Rakdos Sacrifice staples such as Demon's Disciple, Village Rites and Archfiend's Vessel. Not having Rune-Scarred Demon is pretty strange too. Finally I think some of your other spells can just be upgraded: for the same price as Murder you could have Hero's Downfall/Murderous Rider or one more gives you the excellent Eat to Extinction; In Garruk's Wake is so expensive you'll usually wish you had a straight Damnation or Kindred Dominance while Beacon of Unrest gives you some more options and is reusable when compared to other spells. I wouldn't bother with Desecrated Tomb at all - design is great but at the end of the day it costs three and the return on it is a singular 1/1 when you resurrect something. This will not win you a game of commander. On the subject of reanimation, if that's one of your main lines then graveyard stockers such as Buried Alive are vital. While I quite like the look of the deck I would think about which aspects you like about it most (controlling opponents, value sacrifice, reanimation, casting big demons etc) and focus on just two or three of these. This will make your deck increasingly consistent and harder to disrupt as you'll have more redundancy. Hope that helps!
Oh and don't play Karn. You need him in the 99 to access that sideboard (which doesn't exist in EDH, so check with playgroup before you play that btw) and even then you'll probably only ever get one activation. If those cards are strong enough to be in your deck, and I see none which combo with with the rest of it beyond being good like the swords, then make room for them there. Do you honestly think that any opponent will allow you to untap with a Karn after they see you fetch Mycosynth Lattice? No, they'll kill him and leave you with a card that does absolutely nothing for you as you have no "artifacts matters" strategies and in fact might benefit them by being able to tap lands for other colours, something of no use to you in mono-black. I run him in a Karn, Silver Golem deck that is specifically focussed on artifacts but even there it's all about the static and I only play him when I think he'll survive. The "sideboard" he can fetch is the set of Kaldra pieces and Argentum Armor for flavour which I mainly keep on hand to swap out for the harsher stax cards.

The thing with these cards is that in general their effects can be found on similar cards without the downsides. Bontu's Last Reckoning is comparable to Toxic Deluge for the same mana or Damnation for only one more, for example.
But more importantly, while all of these cards keep your lands from untapping, none of them effect your artifacts. So you aren't actually losing a turn, you can still tap all those rocks and mana dorks to cast spells, and assuming you didn't tap out entirely on the turn you cast these, you can also use any lands that were left untapped on the following turn. Lands not untapping seemed like it was more impactful in a format that didn't have Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, and suite of Signets/Charms/Cluestones/Banners/Obelisks/etc

Damnation is definitely superior, but the price tag makes it virtually unplayable for this deck. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Also, I'm not sure if you're using Mutilate for a particular reason be it nostalgia, availability, whatever - but Damnation is another classic card that'd pack even more punch for the same mana cost if you're interested. Sometimes they can be a little pricey though too, especially depending on the printing, so I don't know.
Either way I think this looks extremely streamlined and solid with Dav in there along with everything else.

I caved and bought my first-ever, just couldn't miss out on the Seb McKinnon drop. That's a good price for a Damnation and the rest of the art is fantastic. I hate these drops, though. It's super weird that WotC gets away with this kind of direct-selling to folks, and I dislike having to wait so many months after a "purchase" to actually get the product. I almost bought the nonfoil bundle but waiting until March after paying $99.99? Feelsweirdman. (And yes I know they don't charge you right away - that's actually even harder to plan financially!)

I know this may sound really minor, but what about Jet Medallion?
