I actually didn't think about having a Soulherder variant. It would probably make thing more consistent than having to rely on Ephemerate and Astral Drift. I'll probably play around with an Esper version of this deck somewhere in the future then.

My only concern with Street Wraith is it's price. In dollars it's very cheap. However, in reais(Brazilian currency) this card isn't that budget. Which is kinda of a concern because Canyon Slough isn't that budget either. Still, I can't deny that the Wraith would be pretty good in this deck.

The only reason I'm not running Viscera Dragger is because it doesn't do enough. It's actually pretty interesting that it can trigger the Drift and has Unearth itself, but it has no utilitiy besides that. Extractor Demon is pretty big and has evasion. First-Sphere Gargantua is also pretty big while providing card draw. Rotting Rats helps to fill the graveyard and can work as disruption. Compared to them, the Dragger doesn't seem that useful. Still, I can see an argument to include it given its double duty.

this is really interesting, i never new about that unearth ruling. this should really help some decks ive been playing around with. out of curiosity have you tired a Soulhearder variant?

as someone who's played around a lot with astral drift you really want Street Wraith in the deck, it cycles for free, and helps fill the gy for gurmag, it also basically makes your deck smaller for very little cost

Death's Shadow is definitely the deck you want to look into. It's generally not mono-black, but you could certainly stay in mono-black until you can build a higher budget. It'd look something like:

4x Death's Shadow
4x Street Wraith
4x Scourge of the Skyclaves
4x Abyssal Persecutor
4x Carrion Feeder
4x Vampire Lacerator

4x Mutagenic Growth
2x Dismember
4x Thoughtseize
2x Apostle's Blessing
4x Mishra's Bauble

4x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
15x Swamp

You could probably toss in Dark Confidant, Phyrexian Obliterator, and Gurmag Angler in place of a few non-creature spells. As your budget grows, add more colors. Red is really good for Monastery Swiftspear, Lightning Bolt, and Temur Battle Rage. More importantly, fetch + shock lands is the quickest way to grow Death's Shadow. Bloodstained Mire -> Blood Crypt -> Thoughtseize turn one followed by another fetch + shock gives you at least a 1/1 Death's Shadow on turn two. It could possibly be even bigger via Street Wraith and one of your Phyrexian mana spells. Sometimes you just have the nuts and kill them on turn three with Temur Battle Rage after stacking up on a bunch of Mutagenic Growths.

Hi zAzen7977 -

I appreciate the +1, as well as your suggestions. Unfortunately, I am not going to take any of them, as they are not quite the direction I want to take with the deck.

You are correct that Magus of the Moon is an easier target for removal, but it is the better way to add "Moon" ability redundancy without a playset of Blood Moon. I want to avoid situations where I draw a Blood Moon when one is already on the battlefield. Magus at the very least is a 2/2 body and so is never really a "dead" card, just not as helpful.

I will consider dropping to three Bitterblossom, as it could create a lot more loss of life. However, right now I do like the playset, since the abilities do stack.

I want to avoid Death's Shadow as that archetype oftentimes has more ways of losing life intentionally, whereas this deck just happens to lose life as it takes a toll on the opponent's hand and board. Additionally Street Wraith makes me very sad when Dark Confidant flips it.

Thanks again for your input! Like I said, I'm just taking this deck in a different direction :)

Hey AT23, I like your deck! I have a few suggestions -

Since you are losing a lot of life from the fetchlands, Thoughtseize, Dark Confidant, Bitterblossom (4 copies may be too many), etc., you could run Death's Shadow as an additional finisher. If you dip more into burn with Bump in the Night, maybe even Scourge of the Skyclaves would work. Shadows would add more late-game power other than Kroxa.

I would also drop the Magus of the Moon and run a full set of Blood Moon. I know you’re trying to run multiple versions of this effect, but you may end up with a lot of dead cards, and the Magus is more subject to removal (Anger of the Gods, etc).

A way to help with dead cards is Seasoned Pyromancer to help cycle through your deck. Street Wraith also helps draw cards if you embrace the life-loss.
