Magus of the Coffers Discussion

Your list is looking really good! You have pretty much most of the classic Aristocrats pieces in. Your creature list is spot-on IMO. I love how much removal you have.
A couple of suggestions here though. I am going to assume you're on at least something of a budget. If you're not, hit up EDHREC for more powerful suggestions, of course.
I would recommend a bit more ramp. You're sitting at four ramp pieces by my count, and Bontu's Monument and Ashnod's Altar are a bit questionable as true ramp. They're definitely good and worth their slots--don't get me wrong. I'd recommend at least eight ramp pieces in almost any deck. Some good includes would be Wayfarer's Bauble, Charcoal Diamond, Star Compass, Myriad Landscape, Prismatic Lens, Mind Stone, Worn Powerstone. With a bit of money you have Arcane Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Jet Medallion, Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers and Sword of the Animist.
I wouldn't really recommend Altar of Dementia unless you can infinitely loop sacrifices and make it a win-con. If you just want free sac outlets; your commander, Ashnod's, Woe Strider, and Carrion Feeder should do the trick and give you value in return that you can actually use. Same with Ayara and stuff. Culling Dais and Spawning Pit are decent. One of Yehenni's biggest strengths is having a free sac outlet in the command zone.
Speaking of your commander, one of the reasons to run Yahenni over other mono-Black aristocrats commanders is the threat he/she turns into. I would recommend a few pieces of equipment to help end the game. Loxodon Warhammer, Blackblade Reforged, Lashwrithe, Trailblazer's Boots, Prowler's Helm, and of course Swiftfoot Boots are all good choices. Lots to choose from here but these are great for their price. Obviously there are all the Swords and Jitte and stuff if you have the cash or have them in your collection.

Needs more infinite mana generators; Slimefoot with uninterrupted infinite mana and a sac outlet wins on their own. I might recommend running an Umbral Mantle with your Priest of Titania, or an Elvish Archdruid or Karametra's Acolyte. Magus of the Coffers if you're running the Urborg/Coffers interaction, which ya oughta. With infinite mana, make a universe of funguys then sac 'em and Slimefoot hypermurders your opponents with his vengeful rage.

OMG dude thank you very much for your feedback!!!....really useful info here: i didnt put any ramp artifacts cause i didnt think theyll be necessary to be honest, but i havnt had the chance to test the deck either so, dunno for sure. Although there are some ramp in the deck such as Cabal Stronghold Crypt Ghast Magus of the Coffers and rituals,like a said dunno how effective they can be yet so... I avoided put discard spells cause i wanted to be a bit diffent , i do have some to add in case this build doesnt work properly such as Vicious Rumors Duress Blackmail etc. the idea behind Mind Slash is to sac zombie tokens you create with Waste Not Liliana's Reaver and Bone Miser... I do realise the deck still need some sharpening so, ill see how i can improve it having in mind your advide...thanks dude!

Hey Profet93, great suggestions! I’ve been debating whether to include the rings combo and Yawg’s Will for a while. I had forgotten Helm of Obedience, thanks! The Helm plus Voids are a 2-piece kill combo that seem more likely to achieve than relying on Magus of the Coffers. While including the Magus for the chance of generating infinite mana is nice, if the combo is just not competitive then it’s not worth including. By the way, I am trying to approve your suggestions, but the site seems to be glitching.
SynergyBuild, thanks for putting that list together, awesome!!! I am pulling from it and refining my list. This seems like a promising archetype. Let me know how your testing goes!

Oh for sure run Necro over Bob, and Visitor as well, but more pieces are good, Mindblade Render is great too, however the weird big mana thing is my largest issue with the deck.
Umbral Mantle, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, Torment of Hailfire, Exsanguinate, Bubbling Muck, etc. All are destroyed by cheap removal and interaction. A ton of other random cards in the deck feel weak or just low value, and I believe could be swapped for nearly directly better cards, and the deck could have almost strictly better wincons.
Yes I do like the amazing Tinybones backup plan, but mana dumping isn't necessary, and could just work given the stacy peices and the time they give without all the fluff that makes mulligans and opening hands much worse.
I think this list shows a lot of potential, but isn't tuned for the current metagame, if that makes sense. I'll write up a list of changes and maybe will post it later on!

I usually try to use cheaper cards to keep it around 200-300. So I don't usually have those higher priced card in mine. No shame in using them, but thats just me. Looking at the deck more, you got a lot of the core Wincons which is nice to see.
There is one that I'm not seeing, which imo is one of the better for the deck, which is Thrilling Encore. Usually its seen as a worse Rise of the Dark Realms, but in this case it works really well because you can recur it twice. Plus you can get a lot of value versus green decks with it + Force of Despair.
Another two cards I'd recommend are Magus of the Coffers & Caged Sun mainly because we are playing black. Which admittedly the ramp for black is kinda meh, but Mana Doubling is where it is at. You could also do Liliana of the Dark Realms, but its kind of overkill.
I also recently found this commander, but I love him. He's really fun to build and isn't like any other mono black commander I've ever played.
