I'm pretty sure they're not which is a great point. I typically run the Life or Scry lands in my paper decks for cost. Dreadhorde Butcher is freakin' AWESOME with Malefic Scythe but he is also on the spendier side. I think I might have one or two and if that is the case they would definitely go back in.

aww well looks like i was to late and combo is pretty well covered already.

If not just run a search for any mainstream mono black deck that has Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist in it then just add Malefic Scythe to it and you should be good to go.

I am going to start building my second mono black deck around vito, thorn of the dark rose

My previous one was a K'rrik deck and despite I filled it with really expensive and powerful cards and all the best aristrocrats and ways to...well it failed so this time I am gonna try to get advice from others so I can get mono black done right this time.

The card I am looking at is Malefic Scythe. I want to pair it with Ashnod's Altar but I can't think of any card to pair with it to make it go infinite. I need a creature or spell that makes it so that when I sac the creature holding the scythe I can spawn another creature forever. Is there a way to make this scythe go infinite?

I think it would be a really cool way and this scythe looks like it would go flavorfully REALLY well in this deck with this being a vampire cleric.
