Increasing Ambition


Search your library for a card and put that card into your hand. If Increasing Ambition was cast from a graveyard, instead search your library for two cards and put those cards into your hand. Then shuffle your library.

Flashback {{7}}{{B}} (You may cast this spell from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

Gidgetimer, in that case, the only other option is Increasing Ambition, since every other tutor that you suggested merely replaces itself, and I wish to have a net gain when using such cards.

Atraxa contains black and you don't currently run any of the traditional black tutors. If you want objectively good cards that tutor then you are looking at Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Imperial Seal, and Grim Tutor. Cruel Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Wishclaw Talisman, Scheming Symmetry, Infernal Tutor, Profane Tutor, and Diabolic Tutor can be useful as in the right deck or if you need more black tutors. Passable options in low powered metas include Diabolic Revelation and Increasing Ambition.

I know it's out of tribe, but Toski, Bearer of Secrets is amazing for card draw and fits in this kind of "green weenie" archetype, and if youre planning on going competetive, you can't worry too much about that stuff.

Ivy Lane Denizen is also an idea.

I'd also recommend Green Sun's Zenith and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. Yisan is especially good with things that can untap him to let him tutor multiple times in a turn, but he benefits more if there are more creatures in the deck. Definitely get some 1 cost 1/1s with deathtouch. Theres also Elvish Mystic, a corollary to Llanowar Elves So annoying to deal wth. Demonic Tutor Diabolic Tutor and Increasing Ambition are decent too if you want more tutors. Beyond that, idk, Respite or something. Respite is a little troll, but there are niche circumstances where it can be funny, like, some guy with infinite tokens swinging out at you because he thinks it must be over, then you using that to gain infinite life and somehow taking him out next turn while hes tapped out.

Though these aren’t kicker/multikicker cards, they have potential to grow stronger as the game progresses:

The topic is a bit broad, but I feel like cards like this are especially adept at becoming much larger threats with time.

If all the parts of your engine are so vital, you should pick up some tutors! They are a little more necessary in my deck with Iname, Death Aspect, but I feel like there are cheap enough options Like Diabolic Tutor or Increasing Ambition. Something to consider. Anyways sweet deck and for once it is actually budget so mad respect. +1

Hello stranger, whom I have never met! Awesome concept! Some ideas that come to mind for refining this:

I think your mana curve is super high compared to the number of lands you're running. Since mono-black doesn't access to a lot of ramp, I'd suggest switching out some of your higher costs sorceries, such as Gruesome Discovery , with something like Duress . Similarly, I think that life gain cards like Increasing Ambition are too high costed, and don't really support your overall strategy. I'd suggest replacing with things like Raven's Crime , which you can retrace, or Dying Wail which offer better timing and utility.

Similarly, I think Headhunter and Hypnotic Specter probably have better synergies than your rogues. I really like [card:Black Cat], but think we could do more to trigger it on our terms. Carrion Feeder could be a cool addition, as could Legion Vanguard or Malevolent Noble .

Fiend Artisan is spendy, but would be such a powerful tutor and likely game ender in this build. Hell's Caretaker and Golgari Guildmage are significantly less powerful, but still allow you to exploit repeated triggers of your cats and Sangromancers. If you preferr an enchantment approach, Malevolent Awakening also works well.

I would definitely suggest upping the number of Painful Quandary , and definitely increasing the number of lands you're running to 20-22. I also think 4-8 removal spells, such as Murder , Doom Blade , or Poison the Cup would help respond to enemy threats and interruptions. I'd reduce the number of sorceries to make room - the looping creature threats have more of a long term board presence.

If budget weren't a consideration, a couple of copies of either Massacre Wurm or Sheoldred, Whispering One would make great finishers.

I hope this helps!
