Lately, I have been experimenting with card draw to improve on consistency. Arena, spellbomb and by a technicality last hope. Since all get me cards in one form or another.

Other options have been Mishra's Bauble, Necrogen Spellbomb and Underworld Connections.

Death's Shadow is definitely the deck you want to look into. It's generally not mono-black, but you could certainly stay in mono-black until you can build a higher budget. It'd look something like:

4x Death's Shadow
4x Street Wraith
4x Scourge of the Skyclaves
4x Abyssal Persecutor
4x Carrion Feeder
4x Vampire Lacerator

4x Mutagenic Growth
2x Dismember
4x Thoughtseize
2x Apostle's Blessing
4x Mishra's Bauble

4x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
15x Swamp

You could probably toss in Dark Confidant, Phyrexian Obliterator, and Gurmag Angler in place of a few non-creature spells. As your budget grows, add more colors. Red is really good for Monastery Swiftspear, Lightning Bolt, and Temur Battle Rage. More importantly, fetch + shock lands is the quickest way to grow Death's Shadow. Bloodstained Mire -> Blood Crypt -> Thoughtseize turn one followed by another fetch + shock gives you at least a 1/1 Death's Shadow on turn two. It could possibly be even bigger via Street Wraith and one of your Phyrexian mana spells. Sometimes you just have the nuts and kill them on turn three with Temur Battle Rage after stacking up on a bunch of Mutagenic Growths.

Thinking of swapping the baubles for Terrarion, just cause they work nicer with Crack the Earth.

Also thinking of adding in Fulminator Mage in place of something (maybe the archanist, or SSG). And then getting more moons, and more Unearth

Something like

-3 Dreadhorde Arcanist

-4 Simian Spirit Guide

-4 Mishra's Bauble

+3 Terrarion

+4 Fulminator Mage

+2 Unearth

+2 Blood Moon

jackiscool231 the 0-mana artifacts Mishra's Bauble and Mox Opal reduces Emrys manacost to just one blue mana. Thats why! :)

phastings1982 We can target ourselves with Brain Freeze to dig deeper into our deck which is valueable. Also, it has storm which makes it counterable by only Flusterstorm. So in both these regards, Brain Freeze seems to be the better pick!

jaymc1130 Hehe sorry for not responding! Fierce Guardianship is an obvious powerhouse in this deck! It's simply amazing. I've also included Lithoform Engine along with many other new additions to my personal list. Will update soon :)

It's actually not so hard to check. I use Stattrek for these things, to see how likely I'll be drawing stuff.

I just fed this with the following data, to see if 7 lands check out:

Population size (deck size): 56 (being very generous here as I'm factoring in a playset of Street Wraiths - and no, no Mishra's Bauble as the draw is delayed and you'd miss your first land drop)

Number of successes in Population (how many lands in the deck): 7

Sample size (your hand at turn x // cards drawn up to a certain point): 7 (starting hand)

Number of successes in population ('I'm looking for X specific cards in this amount of cards I've drawn): 1 (so we're looking for 1 land)

Result for the probability to draw 1 or more lands in your opener under these circumstances is roughly 63% which means you'll have a functional opener in 3 out of 5 hands. Not sure this is good enough, but leaning no.

15 lands will give you a probability just over 90% which is the least you should be aiming for so early and that's still factoring in the Street Wraiths, but NOT factoring in more than 1 color deck/lands,colorless lands, tapped lands.

Might work with some fringe weird combo that plays 0 cost artifacts and pitch- or free spells, but even the most aggressive 1-drop burn list will not go below 17 lands without access to free spells or substitute lands.

I encourage you to play around with the Stattrek calculator yourself.

Next I suggest swapping out expensive utility cards like Drift of Phantasms, Perplex, Muddle the Mixture, etc. for 1 drops to reduce your mana curve and allow turn 1 plays. Good candidates include Mishra's Bauble, Serum Visions, and Opt, which do not tutor for a card, but the additional card draw accomplishes the same objective without setting you back a whole turn.

You need to protect your combo proactively instead of reactively, so I suggest running Thoughtseize and/or Inquisition of Kozilek to remove threats before they are played. Force Spike and Spell Pierce are the best 1-drop counterspells, you may consider incorporating some into the main deck or sideboard. Removal like Fatal Push (in conjunction with fetchlands to trigger revolt) and Dismember are critical for dealing with creature-based decks and you should run at least 2 mainboard or on the side.

As far as the sideboard goes, great Karn targets are Wurmcoil Engine and/or Batterskull to gain life, which is critical against aggro and especially burn. Damping Sphere shuts down storm and ramp/Tron simultaneously. Ratchet Bomb wipes tokens or low cost permanents...

Opt, Serum Visions, Fatal Push, Spell Snare, Mishra's Bauble and Inquisition of Kozilek are perfect cheap spells.

You only need 3 of Tasigur and Gurmag combined and even Pyromancer can be cut down to 2. Sprite Dragon is a great substitute.

You can cut down Stubborn Denial, Izzet Charm, Think Twice and Vapor Snag completely and Mana Leak down to 2-3. Countersquall, Drown in the Loch and Archmage's Charm are great alternatives.
