TheSnuggleLord Great weekend here! Hope yours was as well, always fun to finish up some decks and get to test them out. After reading through this latest comment, I immediately realized some changes cards I should swap for ones that I was wanting to try that I, quite frankly, just forgot had already gotten here in the deluge of other TCGPlayer orders (thank God for the cart optimization, but holy hell it keeps my mailbox full).

So UPDATE 3.1: Swapped out Phyrexian Broodlings and Drudge Skeletons with Bloodflow Connoisseur and Crypt Rats.

I gotta say, I do love the broodlings. But saving that one mana is absolutely worth it. I might end up sideboarding them for now, just to see if there is a situation, I might want both in the deck. Although with the last few games, I don't think that'll be likely. With Drudge Skeletons, it just really comes down to hardly ever finding it worth it to save that one mana to block with them and regen. Crypt Rats gives me a bit of a nuke option for token decks and is a nice addition to the abilities Necrotic Ooze can access if the rats are sacked or just milled and aren't worth pulling out of the grave.

At the moment, I'm also testing having Unmarked Grave in place of Cling to Dust (a card a found myself using more often for draws than anything else, and can't really justify an entire slot just for one card draw per game), Rune-Scarred Demon in place of Harvester of Souls, Viscera Seer in place of Okiba Reckoner Raid  Flip, Buried Alive in place of Gravedigger (With all the graveyard pulls I have, one to the hand for a 4 drop didn't seem to justify its place, even if it can be pulled itself from the grave), and Haunted Crossroads in place of Unhinge (a card that just never seems to have a good time to use for the cost).

Haha, yeah, I've been learning the hard way about the struggles of mono black against graveyard hate. The game's I've done the best against the deck with it really have come down to just trying to maintain board control. Something that has been hard against token heavy decks, but I'm hoping having another answer, in the form of Crypt Rats, will help with that side of things at least. I'm for sure going to keep my eye on the new cards next month. Excited to see if anything would fit in this deck, or any of the others I've started working on.

I honestly had no clue so many of the cards had art that directly tied into lore from the mtg universe. I spilled down a small Rabit hole after reading your comment on that, and holy heck it's so cool to see. Really does add an entire new layer to consider when deck building!

Boxfish Hey! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I finished up a series of decks I had been working on just recently; saw I had some notifications regarding this deck and the new additions are beautiful! Necrotic Ooze can lead to a beautiful toolbox of effects. Especially if you pop a Viscera Seer or Woe Strider which pop up in a ton of sac engine decks; or to become a mana dork or combo piece if anyone runs artifact dudes. Heck Yeah!

Another speed tidbit, you might find something like Bloodflow Connoisseur slightly more efficient than Phyrexian Broodlings, but they are cute and flavorful.

Graveyard hate is. Rough. It feels rough when you don't have answers for it. When it's creature-based, great. Black mana is excellent for resolving this. But when it comes to destroying enchantments. Black struggles. Realistically it's just easier to make your opponent sacrifice them, which isn't often simple with some mono Black strategies. I wish I had useful advice for such endeavors. It's namely just suffocating out your competition with value you so you can lock them out, or answer their plays; and you've got plenty of answers that's for sure.

Be sure to keep an eye out for Dominaria United this September. It features a new Sheoldren card and a Phyrexian Invasion on Dominaria. I look forwards to using what comes out to make a flavorful Phyrexian-only Yawgmoth, Thran Physician deck to play against a Weatherlight Crew deck, Sisay, Weatherlight Captain I've been slowly making. Every card featured from a set specifically referencing the Weatherlight Crew and its characters (likewise for the Yawgmoth deck). So that I can recreate Yawgmoth's Vile Offering where Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero brings Yawgmoth Urza's head, as promised and depicted in one of the Phyrexian Arena arts. Gerrard betraying this promise uses Urza's head (still alize, magically) to use the Legacy Weapon in an attempt to defeat Yawgmoth once and for all.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Carrion Feeder is probably better than Phyrexian Broodlings in this list. Mortician Beetle might also be very nice. I'd prefer Defile over Vicious Offering , you really want to sacrifice things to your creatures. Generally look at Mono-Black Aristocrats decks, as those have pretty much the same game plan as you.
