Apollo_Paladin: When I talked about Dredge, I showed how Putrid Imp led to a Turn 2 victory for a deck. It's not a Madness Enabler, it's a Graveyard enabler, which is a far greater problem.

No legacy Madness build is complete without Putrid Imp , the nastiest Turn-1 drop for a madness deck.

Shoot, forgot to add, you might also consider something to discard, like Putrid Imp that offer you a good means to get creatures you draw into the graveyard... and he might even ping them for 1 in doing it! ;)

Looks great! What's the point of Putrid Imp ???

How about Meteor Golem as a way to get rid of problem permanents since we are mono-black? I know this seems a bit wonky, but with our access to a discard outlet in the Command Zone as well as Putrid Imp in the 99, reanimating the fat-bodied Golem is very doable. Of course the 7cmc is hard on old Bob, though. Just a thought.

Nice deck, I think it has good potential.

I suggest Putrid Imp and Dragon Breath . Who doesn't like a turn 2 win?

I'm pretty sure you don't need 14 big boys to get the reanimator effect. If you really want the effect to happen I suggest something with dredge like Stinkweed Imp .

Finally I suggest removing Predatory Nightstalker (a 3/2 for five?) and replace it with Geth's Verdict or Victim of Night . If you want a creature, make it a Perilous Myr .

Why not have reanimation as a backup strategy for getting Spirit of the Night out? After all, he's not much use to you if you ever draw the handsome lugnut. Entomb and Putrid Imp are classic enablers, with Necromancy and Exhume being reliable ways to bring him back. The perennially underrated Body Snatcher , however, handles both parts of the equation on his own!

This is truly some spicy stuff. May I suggest a pet card of mine: Putrid Imp . It's simply the cheapest and easiest way to gain discard triggers that I know of. Also, Call to the Netherworld might be useful for getting back discarded wraiths for a few extra triggers on your horror.
