kandjar - In my experience, Fallen Ideal is more than ok. It pretty much doubles your tokens once you hit with Lathril.

Swing in, don't get blocked and then sacrifice all your tokens/creatures you don't care about to replace them with a bunch more tokens and ETBs. It's excellent.

I haven't tried Demonic Embrace yet but I do think that'll be good too. I added Eldrazi Monument but I haven't played with it yet.

Again, Rancor was in the initial build and got cut. There's too many good cards that fit in this deck.

tribal-kai - Indeed, the deck has a lot of targeting spells/abilities, I did mention that it would required a more serious refocus in order to include Steely Resolve . I did build mine with that in mine as I really like this card. I just wanted to mention just in case it you missed the card. Technically, there's also Asceticism , except it's a 5 CMC cards.

Fallen Ideal is OK; but it suffers the same downside as any aura as it could be a 2 for 1 if your opponent kills your Elf in response for you playing the card. Demonic Embrace is more resilient, but it's still be 2 for 1 (if you count the discarded card to get it back); and, I don't know about you but when I play Lathril I'm often looking into ways to get more cards in my hand as the deck tends to want you to dump it out. Any discard effect is very costly. This is why I love Eldrazi Monument over those 2; not only it protects all your Elves, it's also an anthem for your entire army and give them flying/invasion.

Since you like auras; I was wondering if you also considered Rancor as it's very mana efficient.

kandjar - Yeah I had Steely Resolve in there but it got cut due to my targeting spells.

I've since replaced Blackblade Reforged with the previously suggested Fallen Ideal and it's an excellent include. I'm very happy with that one.

I might try Demonic Embrace too, although I don't like the idea of discarding cards. I don't suppose I'd do that too often though,

Eldrazi Monument is a good one to consider as the deck is really fragile to board wipes. I'll have a look over the deck list and see what to cut for it.

Hello, Sorin_Markov_1947,

Sorry for the late reply, but Kargan Intimidator most definitively remove all creature type while turning the creature into a coward, otherwise it would say "...coward in addition to its other types" like for Demonic Embrace . Please do some research or testing on MTGA before correcting others.

Good to see you back Sorin_Markov_1947!

It probably is time to mix things up with this deck a bit. I only play BO1 so my sideboard is always the bubble cards and this thing might be geared towards fighting Dimir Rogues a bit too much. I am kind of indifferent between Archfiend's Vessel and Nullpriest. I think both are great in this deck. Nullpriest gets the nod though because he can bring back Rankle. In the longer grindier games it's a huge boost. Also, running Demonic Embrace helps me get a little more out of him because the menace makes it hard to flash a creature down in front of him.

To all those saying that card advantage is a problem: it's not. This may look like an aggro deck, but I've played mono-black Eidolon with a lot of the same cards and it can grind out games very well. I play mine for fun and not in ranked, but it does well.

I think Archfiend's Vessel is just too good here to remain in the sideboard. Anything with cheap recursion works so well with him to just get you a 5/5 flier. He's one of the main win conditions for my deck, but I don't play Demonic Embrace because I have Lurrus as a companion. I also play Order of Midnight and Mogis's Favor , but I don't think you need either. I don't find Nullpriest to be all that good, tbh. Maybe your experiences with him are different.

Hey SultaivsAbzan, I haven’t had the opportunity to test this out in actual matches yet, but if you or anyone else has any experience, I would be happy to hear about it! I’m not sure what you mean about unlocking Narfi’s showcase frame tho. If you want to use it on T/O, you can select it as an alternative version (KHM:329).

Thanks for the suggestions TonyRik, I took your advice and dropped the Demonic Embrace s for now, I’ve won games with it in the past, but you are right that it is expensive and often slow. I added Crippling Fear to the mainboard, to take advantage of the zombie creature type (Egon also survives, which is nice). If enchantments are a big issue, I would bring in the remaining 2 Feed the Swarm and the 4 Wilt on the sideboard.

Nice deck dude. I also play Mono Black Infect and i love Demonic Embrace on Phyrexian Crusader. It turns him into a 2 turns clock with evasion, and it's recursive. But i run no other creatures in my build and it's true that it's less impressive on a Plague Stinger or an Inkmoth Nexus...
