Sheoldred, the Apocalypse

Legendary Creature — Phyrexian Praetor

Whenever you draw a card, you gain 2 life.

Whenever an opponent draws a card, they lose 2 life.

Hey COOZCOOZCOOZ!

Thanks for trying out the deck! I saw your recommendations and thought I'd share why I do or do not use some cards.

Firstly, Alhammarret's Archive and Well of Lost Dreams help with lifegain and card draw. The latter works very well with Pristine Talisman and Sheoldred, the Apocalypse, as well as my other draw spells, while the former can boost them all by doubling my lifegain and card draw. As for the new Athreos, I can put a coin counter on any creature, then exile it with Karlov, then I can steal it onto my battlefield. That is why I use the new Athreos over the old one. However, I do agree that more card draw is never a bad thing. I originally considered running either Black Market Connections or Phyrexian Arena but I took them out; now I am considering adding either one of those or Dark Confidant as you said before. And when it comes to Despark, I prefer to use Anguished Unmaking. For more mana and 3 life, I can exile any nonland permanent, and not just one with CMC or more. Plus the art is killer since I'm a huge metalhead.

Thank you again for the advice!

Thanx for your reply! Yes, Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is great. I've been considering changing Tergrid with her. =) Torment of Hailfire was opted out from the deck, because it was too strong and.. not very interactive, I guess. It somehow had the same outcome each time: generate 15+ mana, tutor > hellfire > win, if not counterd. I've decided it was not with the casual theme of the deck.

Geth's Grimoire is good, but the payoff of drawing cards seemed redundant in this deck. Tinybones, Trinket Thief is cheaper and at least gives black devotion for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Gray Merchant of Asphodel, but I do not like that his activated ability will probably never be used in such a deck.

Worst Fears is surprisingly good here, because with big draw engines it gives you a lot of options of messing up with opponent plans with there own cards (also you choose what to give to Tergrid, if she is in play)

Niko9 on I really miss flavor text

Or at least, flavor text that really had some oomph behind it. I've been looking at brother's war this morning and there are so many legends in there that feel, I don't know, just so like filler cards, and I think that part of it is how much flavor text is missing.

What makes flavor text so important (ha, to me at least) is that at worst of times it doesn't take anything away from the game, but at best of times it's amazing short form storytelling. I mean, why would you play no text rancor when you can play Rancor : ) It adds nothing, but it adds so much too.

Heh, and I'm sorry if this is a little ranty, it's just that my interest is so high for magic right now, but I just feel like they are printing things further and further from what I loved about old magic, and that makes it hard to get into new sets. Take Sheoldred, the Apocalypse that's just the most throw away line ever. And, I'm not saying that everything has to be Visara the Dreadful but at the same time, I'd love Urza, Mishra, and other characters that have so much lore to have something fun on the card.

The last set I can remember with great flavor text was AFR. The flavor lands are some of my all time favorite lands, and I just loved most all of the set, just because of how full of life everything was. Maybe that is gone though in the face of making more sets, and if it is, I honestly feel like the game has lost something that is more important than any of us really realize. Most decks I've ever made are based on flavor, so I can say from my own perspective at least, that flavor text is actually a big part of how I play the game, and I'm really starting to worry a bit if my style of magic is phasing out.

But anyways, don't mean to prattle too much : ) What are some of your favorite flavors texts? I do think that Rancor is maybe the perfect flavor text, but I also like quick quips like Gallia of the Endless Dance or Bag of Holding

Though, to be fair, I have heard that the flavor of the warhammer set was really good. I feel like I just don't get it, but if it is, then that's actually pretty awesome. Mostly I just wish that they took this same approach to the magic characters.

Asmodeus the Archfiend + Skirge Familiar in the yard with Necrotic Ooze on the battlefield = loot the whole library get big mana

Vilis, Broker of Blood is another great beater demon that has synergy with Sheoldred, the Apocalypse.

Nice deck! Have you considered Sheoldred, the Apocalypse? Seems tailor-made for a deck that forces lots of draw. Geth's Grimoire can also be very beneficial for you, to profit from opposing discards even more. Same goes for Tinybones, Trinket Thief. I would also really recommend Torment of Hailfire as it's absolutely devastating in here on multiple levels.

To make room for these changes I would recommend top remove K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Murderous Rider, Profane Command and Worst Fears.

I used to run Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet great card. I might do 2 Taz 1 Kalitas 1 Damn which is a strictly better Damnation

I dunno I kinda want to fit a Sheoldred, the Apocalypse in as well but I feel like the deck needs to have a card advantage source

Chasmolinker on Mono Black Nighthawk

Hey mememan3310. First off, welcome back!

Some amount of removal is always necessary. Combo and Flying can be tough match-ups for Mono Black without enough discard/removal. 3-4 Fatal Push and 1-2 Murderous Rider are good options with 1-2 copies of Infernal Grasp I like 6-8 hard removal spells as Mono Black is typically a Mid-Range deck. Don't sleep on Gelatinous Cube either. I've stolen plenty of games with that card.

I would stick with 4 Duress and probably cut Agonizing Remorse since the only thing you really need to hit with discard in Mono-black are Non-creature spells. If you want something more versatile, Thoughtseize is your best option.

Sword-Point Diplomacy is a cute card draw spell, but they probably just let you draw the lands or irrelevant cards, (i.e. creature removal against planeswalkers). I personally prefer Sorin the Mirthless or Reckoner Bankbuster for card draw. Unwilling Ingredient is another pet favorite of mine although probably not what you should be running.

I know a lot of people run Evolved Sleeper The card just doesn't resonate with me. It often dies to removal after you've already sunk your mana into it. It reminds me of Hexdrinker in that it can be great if you max it out but getting there uninterrupted is difficult to pull off. I prefer Concealing Curtains  Flip and Knight of the Ebon Legion in the 1-drop spot.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Invoke Despair are two really solid finishers in Mono-Black. If you can swing Liliana of the Veil and Sheoldred, the Apocalypse you won't be disappointed.

There are so many good cards in Mono-Black that it is tough to squeeze everything in sometimes. 22 Lands seems too low. A single Takenuma, Abandoned Mire, Field of Ruin, and Hive of the Eye Tyrant are worth looking at as utility lands. I'd try to get 24-25 lands in there since most of the powerful Mono-Black spells fall in the 3+ MV range.

Hey there you two, thanks for responding! I have changed it to be default now, but that is a good trick to know!

As for your suggestions, Blue, yeah Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is fantastic, I see why it's an expensive card. As for Desecration Demon, I may need you to sell me on it a bit. I just filled in my 4 mana drops on my curve with Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Rankle, Master of Pranks as card draw, but I'm open to suggestions for that slot. However, it seems like Spawn of Mayhem would be a better flying beatdown creature for the same mana or less (with Spectacle), right?

Also, I have 4x of both Vampire Nighthawk AND Nighthawk Scavenger, that's the core of the deck, those two as well as Vampire of the Dire Moon and Gifted Aetherborn.

I really like the sound of mono black devotion, what would that look like? What cards go into it? I assume Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a 4x of as a finisher, but what else?
