Profane Command

Sorcery

Choose two — Target player loses X life; or return target creature card with converted mana cost X or less from your graveyard to the battlefield; or target creature gets -X/-X until end of turn; or up to X target creatures gain fear until end of turn. (They can't be blocked except by artifact creatures and/or black creatures.)

Very cool! I dont often see other modern/mono black pox brews.

I honestly like your list but figure that I would share some tools I use in my own non-black pox brew to see what you think.... Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai is pretty potent that has amazing synergies with Smallpox / Crucible of Worlds / Bloodghast ... I always love to have the chump blocks anyway.... my other honorable mention is Death's Shadow with any black deck with self mutilation... pretty good to pair him with Profane Command or Night's Whisper / Sign in Blood ... the recursion/evasion is neat with command but the draw 2 sorcery cards just really work well for me with or without Death's Shadow ... neat deck +1

epartica on Black is still the best

7H30F7 Thanks for all the help and suggestions it has been an eye opener in what direction I should take this deck. Before I say anything I want to let you know that I made Black is Best Take Two with the cards I can't afford let me know what you think! That deck would basically be my end goal! Now, the deck here will be the cards I currently own and will be trying to work with. I agree with Carrion Feeder as a sack outlet along with being a zombie, which I would want to keep Endless Ranks of the Dead and Grave Pact . Altar's Reap I have some and would want those again. Profane Command would be god tear in this deck because it would on be 5 mana to get everything back so great call on that.

I don't see the point of Fatal Push because I would need something to die on their turn for it to really work. Liliana's Triumph would be better than Diabolic Edict however I think I would only run that if i got more Liliana's to really take advantage of that card. Liliana, the Last Hope I would love but it's just out of price range. I figure I can either get 2 Liliana, the Last Hope or 4 Thoughtseize and 4 Inquisition of Kozilek .

Blood for Bones over Unearth makes this deck a lot fast but I'll be loosing a sack outlet, still it's a lot faster. I think the last thing i'll get for this deck is lands because i really don't want to spend money on it.

epartica So modern as a format is in the perfect middle ground in terms of power level. The decks are not terribly broken (except for the fun Hogaak) and the control is not powerful enough to stop the most aggro decks. As you get to Legacy, however, you will see that aggro decks that are not combo decks/storm no longer exist. With the addition of Force of Will and Daze and cards like that, it's hard to have a deck that focuses on too much aggro w/o being combo. Thus, a tempo deck, which takes its place, is a deck that is more aggressive than not but also has a lot of control. Thus, while it can be a faster deck, it also uses control to lockdown the opponent. A good example is a Death and Taxes deck.

I'll do a little bit of thinking and get back to you on the other suggestions. I have a few right now.

At some point, if you're more committed to the deck, I really would recommend getting a couple Liliana, the Last Hope for the deck. But a good alternative would be Liliana, Death's Majesty it's about $6-7 (compared to the $40 for the Last Hope). Especially the {-7} will help with control, and the ability to recur creatures from your graveyard.

I also suggest adding a couple of more early game instants and sorceries that help control your opponent. Inquisition of Kozilek / Duress / Divest are good hand control cards. Fatal Push , Go for the Throat , and Liliana's Triumph would be good for creature control. All of the sacrificing your own creatures will trigger the revolt on Fatal Push a lot, so I really recommend it. All of them are pretty inexpensive. Profane Command can also be quite helpful. If you need GY hate, maybe Deadeye Tracker or Nihil Spellbomb .

I'd also suggest getting a couple better sacrifice outlets. The best I can currently think of is Carrion Feeder and Altar's Reap , but I'll get back to you w/ more. In addition, I would use Unearth rather than Blood for Bones . I would also definitely add Mortician Beetle .

For lands, I would suggest Blast Zone , Scavenger Grounds , Mortuary Mire , Ifnir Deadlands and Memorial to Folly are some that I can think of immediately, but I'll dig around for some more.

DuTogira on Pili pala needs help xD

I’d recommend replacing Perplex with Drift of Phantasms . I know it doesn’t look as fun, but Perplex really really blows as anything but a tutor. It won’t stop game winning threats from resolving, but it costs a whole 3 mana. Drift of Phantasms on the other hand is an absolute wall against many aggro decks, and since it has flying it blocks the spectrum.

I’d also try to fit some removal in here. Something like Fatal Push or Path to Exile as a 4 of goes a long way. I know they’re a bit pricier, but they’re worth it if you don’t want to drop big bucks on Ensnaring Bridge .

I might also try to make your wincons into one-of’s that can be tutored by cards like Tribute Mage and Drift of Phantasms . This frees up a lot more board space, especially considering that most of the payloads are really bad without infinite mana.

For wincons, maybe replace Train of Thought and Pyromatics with Whispers of the Muse and replace Profane Command + the auriok salvagers package with a single Welder Automaton (that way it can be fetched by Tribute Mage which can be fetched by Drift of Phantasms ). Also now that Tribute Mage exists (it didn’t when I was brewing), try a Lightning Greaves or two.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will ramp you into the mana you need. It could also allow you to cast cards like Profane Command with a high value for X. Vampire Nighthawk is also a good budget option that can block and kill almost anything and gain you life while it's doing it.

nice! maybe Liliana of the Dark Realms would go nicely to feed into your high CMC spells and help not topdeck a land. Profane Command / Exsanguinate could be nice options too.
