Moonlight Bargain

Instant

Look at the top five cards of your library. For each card, put that card into your graveyard unless you pay 2 life. Then put the rest into your hand.

Can't overestimate Moonlight Bargain , since it fills both your hand and your graveyard at instant speed.

Black's got tons of burst draw, like Dark Bargain , Succumb to Temptation , Sign in Blood , Read the Bones , Night's Whisper , Ancient Craving , Ambition's Cost etc.

Black also has a bunch of steady-draw effects, like Greed , Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Erebos, God of the Dead , and the recent addition that I've liked a fair bit, (especially if you're going to be running sacrifice and reanimate tricks) Bloodtracker .

I'd also definitely recommend Harvester of Souls for your strategy, along with the red discard-draw spells like Faithless Looting , Tormenting Voice , Cathartic Reunion , etc. and the wheel effects like Reforge the Soul , Fateful Showdown , Wheel of Fate , Dark Deal etc.

Nice deck, Greven looks super fun. One thing to consider with Greven is that the cards that go best with him have multiple roles in the deck. Here are some suggestions. I'll try to give both budget and non-budget options.:

The Swords of X&Y work really well on Greven because they can make him basically unblockable alongside other bonuses.

Whispersilk Cloak is great on him since it truly does make him unblockable and gives him shroud. Most of your pumps are coming from creatures dying anyways so you won't have to target Greven much.

Basilisk Collar gives him lifelink to recoup some life loss, and ensures that both creatures blocking him die.

Anger and Filth - both great sac targets that give crucial abilities to Greven when they hit the graveyard.

Fire Covenant says "wipe the enemies blockers AND kill target player (through commander damage)" at instant speed.

Ashes to Ashes does the same to a lesser extent

Heartless Hidetsugu powers up Greven to nearly one shot an opponent

Kokusho, the Evening Star powers up Greven, gains life, and further drains life from opponents.

Moonlight Bargain can now be used as card draw and a combat trick.

Bitterblossom produces blockers, sacrifice fodder, and life loss all in one.

Bloodsoaked Champion , Squee, the Immortal , Bloodghast , etc. are sac fodder that keep coming back.

There are a lot more that I could list off, but I didn't want to overwhelm you. Happy deck building!

Savra, Queen of the Golgari - Commander of the first EDH deck I built from scratch, which is still a formidable attrition style deck. Runs a convoluted, but very resilient, infinite combo as an emergency finisher.

Toshiro Umezawa - Commander of my highest-rated deck here on EDH, I've put a lot of time into making his list run smoothly and the primer I have here is the result.

Neheb, the Eternal - Commander of my most fun deck. He makes so much mana, and can have unbelievably explosive games, finishing people off with almost nothing in play. My favorite moment with this deck was killing a player from 40 with the exert trigger of a Glorybringer .

Moonlight Bargain - Such an amazing card, so underrated. Until it's recent release in a commander product, I'd never seen it played by anyone else.

Nissa Revane - The first planeswalker I pulled from a pack, and still my favorite planeswalker. Is she good? No. Do I care? No.

The Great Aurora - Why does no one run a mono-green board wipe? This thing is fantastic. Ramp a bunch, float some mana, cast this, then rebuild your board before anyone else gets a chance.

Archangel of Thune - Gotta represent my love of angels somehow, and this card is just a friggin' beast, easily one of my favorite cards. It's got it all - excellent art, good flavor text, and a game-ending ability. I've got a sweet stained-glass alter of one that looks absolutely amazing.

Permeating Mass - It's my dream to one day build a Permeating mass first strike deck, with the goal being creating a field of as many permeating masses as possible. Someday.

jordanalessi I said Dark Tutelage , Read the Bones , Moonlight Bargain , and gave many more options for casual games, ones with lower budgets, or more fun cards.

Claiming a "Gotcha" when you don't read thoroughly the post is... umm... stupid. Yes. You are really dumb.

Also, for the long games, Necropotence , Greed , and Ad Nauseam give a lot more value. Once you get into the general late game of turns 10+, a card like Necropotence as a top deck allows you to draw many more cards, and turn life into a full hand every following turn. Unlike the more money expensive, worse Phyrexian Arena that wouldn't give that level of upside.

Add:

Oran-Rief Hydra , Fastbond , Titania, Protector of Argoth , Comet Storm

Maybe Adds:

--Creatures: Sakura-Tribe Scout , Vinelasher Kudzu , Jaddi Offshoot

--Enchant: Retreat to Kazandu , Retreat to Hagra , Zendikar's Roil

--Sorcery: Nissa's Renewal , Insurrection , Nissa's Pilgrimage

--Removal: Searing Blaze , Gaze of Granite

--Planeswalker: Nissa, Vital Force

Remove from deck:

Primeval Titan and Sylvan Primordial (both are edh illegal, I'll vote useable, but I'd double check with the group), Assassin's Trophy (nvr help your enemy), Solemn Simulacrum (this card's effects are too slow to be worth 4 mana imo), Moonlight Bargain , Hunting Wilds ,

Note: Courser of Kruphix (doesn't allow you to play extra lands per turn), Viability of lifegain in this deck? Thantis, the Warweaver could bite you in the butt

I like: Boundless Realms , Collective Voyage , Eternity Vessel Rakdos's Return (a great kill spell), Ramunap Excavator
