Peoyogon on Vhati il-Dal Old School Commander!

You know 3n3rgy2, I thought about running Chainer but I honestly like Balthor more. It's such a powerful (though expensive) ability! And yep, it's called An Old-School Nightmare; you may have seen it before? There is also a really awesome old-school Volrath the Fallen deck I see from time to time - highly recommend checking it out if you haven't already!

PAHamster, Plague Spitter seems like it might go really well here. Gloomdrifter, Plague Dogs, and Death's-Head Buzzard also might be useful if you have reiable sac outlets. I use them as dusters in my own deck :)

DeinoStinkus Thank you. I have considered Lightning Bolt but opted to use Abrade instead as it offers more versatile and answers more threats. Mana Vault was also considered but to get the ball rolling we really need our commander out and the pips make generic rocks not as good; granted, we could ramp into a nice pay off eldrazi but for the most part I wanted colored rocks. Spawn of Mayhem may replace Plague Spitter after a bit of testing; admittedly I'm not a huge fan of the art on it - but this is meant to be an optimal deck so it could see an inclusion eventually. Rift Bolt is way too slow and doesn't do enough. Perhaps you meant Flame Rift?

StasisAbuser on Volrath - There's no School, like Old School.

So happy to see someone build a commander deck exclusively with old school frames, especially black which has the best old frame IMO. I have a five color Karona, False God deck with the same theme myself :)

Only suggestions I can offer are Cuombajj Witches, Unnatural Hunger, Plague Spitter, Cabal Ritual, and Last Laugh.

Subbing to this deck as it has given me ideas to maximize the old frame cards in my own mono-black deck.

Curve looks a little high without much ramp or fixing. Maybe something like Loam Dryad and Ulvenwald Captive  Flip can help out with that if you're not looking to run more traditional ramp.

Some other on-flavor options to bring the curve down a bit are Wharf Infiltrator (also lets you ditch higher-costed cards you might not be able to use for value and recur with your Hell's Caretaker) and Plague Spitter. Woe Strider is a nice piece of recurrable value that helps you smooth your draws a bit.

Fleshwrither is a nice utility horror that lets you go search for pieces like Hell's Caretaker or Ravenous Chupacabra.

And while it may not be as budget, Phyrexian Revoker helps you answer some threats from across the board.

Happy haunting!

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:

Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:

  • direct damage is now at lower cmc
  • -1 Ramp
  • +1 protection/haste
  • +2 tutor
  • +5 draw
  • +1 anti-control
  • -4 Creature removal
  • -2 graveyard hate
  • -1 discard
  • -1 extra attack
  • -1 lifegain/recursion
  • +1 removal

So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.

And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!
