No problem austintayshus! It's a fun idea definitely! Let me know how your deck list turns out and feel free to ask for any help!

Since you don't have access to the white board wipes there are other alternatives like Evacuation , Pestilence , Hellfire , Pyroclasm , Starstorm , Pyrohemia , Magmaquake , Inferno , and Earthquake .

Agriyon on Kaervek - Symmetrical Pain

1 year ago

Nice deck list. I've been looking at making a Kaervek punish deck since I've turned my old Rakdos suicide deck into a tribal demon deck. Some of my favorite cards form that deck were Manabarbs, Citadel of Pain, Havoc Festival, Sulfuric Vortex, Spellshock, Planar Chaos, Storm Cauldron, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Ankh of Mishra, Angel's Trumpet, Mass Hysteria, Grand Melee, Avatar of Slaughter, Avarice Amulet, Spiteful Visions, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Temple Bell, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Geier Reach Sanitarium. I love Toxic Deluge in my suicide deck as a board wipe. If you're looking for more pay life to kill creatures there's also Phyrexian Purge, Fire Covenant, Slaughter, Hellfire, and Ashes to Ashes as well as Repay in Kind which helps brings opponent down to your level after hurting yourself. Possibility Storm could be a nice inclusion as well if it works the way I think it does with Kaervek. Opponent casts a spell and both Kaervek and Possibility Storm trigger, the spell gets exiled and if your opponent plays the other card with Possibility Storm then Kaervek will trigger again.

Caerwyn on Will WotC Keep Life Loss ...

BS-T

Dark Bargain is not really an outlier. While life loss in exchange for some boon is more common, there are plenty of black spells (Ashes to Ashes, Hellfire, etc.) that deal damage to you, and a large number of black creatures that deal damage to you, usually provided certain conditions are not satisfied (ex. Archdemon of Greed.

None of the individual cards in Dominaria struck me as too unusual - perhaps not the norm, but none were problematic. Taken as a complete hole, the lack of life loss cards was quite strange, but I do not see one set as indicitavie of a change to how Black will function moving forward.

shub on Hymn of Darkness: Elenda EDH [PRIMER]

1 year ago

Spawning Pit lets you sacrifice everything before an enemy board wipe so Elenda grows, and later you can pump out spawn artifacts to sacrifice all over again. Hellfire and Hymn to Tourach don't make much sense to me when you can run Divine Reckoning, Dusk / Dawn, Sadistic Hypnotist, or Skullclamp (some of which others have already recommended).

Overall this seems pretty good :) I would make some minor alterations, though...

Your curve is relatively high, and I would suggest you add some more ramp to compensate ;) Extraplanar Lens/Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx are great options in mono-colored lists.

Bloodghast could also work well as a repeatable source of death triggers, so that Bontu can effectively attack.

One of my favorite cards in mono-black is Hellfire: it tends to leave your board completely untouched, while wiping away everything your opponents control.

Have you considered more strong reanimation, like Reanimate? Victimize also always does wonders for me.

Overall, though, this looks like a solid mono-black control list. Could use a more detailed description though ;) My stab at mono-black control is here, if you want to check for anything I may have missed: The Hungry, Hungry Aetherborn: Yahenni EDH

Thoughts:

  • This deck has very low curve. 35 lands is probably unnecessary. I'd go down to 32.

  • There's no reason not to include Phyrexian Tower, Volrath's Stronghold, Ancient Tomb, and Cavern of Souls in the landbase.

  • Add Skullclamp as a draw engine. There's enough support for it.

  • If you want Bomberman to be your main wincon, there's no reason you have to wait until your next attack to win with your spirits. Altar of Dementia, Altar of the Brood, and Blasting Station will all do the trick with no additional setup. Using Altar of Dementia on yourself also puts combo pieces in your yard and makes Skullclamp and Replenish more effective.

  • Anguished Unmaking is, in fact, better than Vindicate nearly all the time.

  • Swap Oblivion Ring for Leonin Relic-Warder. They're essentially the same effect, and Warder gets you an extra combo with Animate Dead and friends. (Warder can also be sac'ed to permanent exile while Oring can't be.)

  • Cut Doomwake Giant. This is the top of your curve and it just gives things -1/-1 when it lands. If you really want more board control, Hellfire is much cleaner.

  • Cut Agent of Erebos. We have gravehate on an untapped land now. It's unnecessary. (Scavenger Grounds)

  • If you still need room Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Blind Obedience are both ok to cut. They're ok at slowing opponents down, but not the greatest at it.

  • This last suggestion's a little more for casual play, but for Black/White creature based decks I like to include Westvale Abbey  Flip in the landbase in case he game drags on and I need to recoup some life in an emergency.

n0bunga: OG Hellfire is a great but forgotten card in EDH - it's a star in my Yahenni, Undying Partisan list.

Do you all think I should put Razaketh into my I Call Her Vera: Sidisi EDH | *PRIMER* deck?
