Sword of Truth and Justice

Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature gets +2/+2 and has protection from white and from blue.((Remember the acronym debt.) This can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything white or blue. Anything white or blue attached to this immediately falls off.)

Whenever equipped creature deals combat damage to a player, puy a +1/+1 counter on a creature you control, then proliferate. (Choose any number of permanents and/or players, then give each another counter of each kind already there.)

DawnsRayofLight on ULTRA REACTIVE MONO BLACK

1 month ago

I've been playing monoblack in EDH for a while! So, I have some advice I can offer that I hope will help you out!

Land base: 35 should be enough, consider some utility lands: Maze of Ith Cabal Coffers (get it while it is cheap!) maybe some land destruction like Field of Ruin, Wasteland, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, etc. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Temple of the False God Cabal Stronghold Castle Locthwain Rogue's Passage

Equipment to boost your general:

Sword of War and Peace, life gain and protection Sword of Light and Shadow, recursion and protection Sword of Hearth and Home, protection, blink your ETB kill a guy creatures, ramp Sword of Feast and Famine, expensive, but super good Lashwrithe: ouch Vorpal Sword: haha double ouch Blackblade Reforged Sword of Truth and Justice Sword of the Animist

I might try to add a few more win cons in your creature base

Vilis, Broker of Blood, draw and beat stick Razaketh, the Foulblooded, search and beat stick K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth ramp and can get big Archon of Cruelty been debating adding it to chainer

Ramp and utility suggestions

Bolas's Citadel: super good but can be rough if you aren't gaining a lot of life Caged Sun: super good ramp and works when your opponents tap Skyclave Relic: better than darksteel ingot Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools: good for draw and blockers Grief: hand control Thought-Knot Seer: hand control Ob Nixilis Reignited: stayed in my chainer deck for a while until Tevesh came along

Grim Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition over diabolic tutor (depends on you play group if they allow a "wish board," some don't, I run acquisition but may pick up a grim tutor for groups not okay with it)

I might lose some of the instant speed removal for:

Hero's Downfall: which you are running Deadly Rollick Eat to Extinction Vraska's Contempt

Some general removal as monoblack suffers from inability to handle certain types like enchant and artifact:

Karn Liberated Ugin, the Ineffable Steel Hellkite Nevinyrral's Disk

Suggested drops:

Tattered Mummy: Not that good, more consistent ways of grinding out damage Skyclave Shade: Bloodghast is better 1x Skeletal Grimace: I get the point, but there are better cards 1x Underworld Dreams: I am iffy on this one, Painful Quandary and Polluted Bonds may be better or good additions to complement it. The entire instant pool save hero's downfall and malicious affliction, there are better killspells Expedition Map: really only useful for setting up tron or land combos Liliana, Waker of the Dead: Liliana Vess works better

The True Meaning of Death and Taxes: this is my chainer death and taxes reanimator list, check it out for suggestions, I have a lot of cards in the maybeboard I have considered and even used at one point that may spark some ideas.

Interesting how there are no creatures. I have a few suggestions Savor the Moment . You don't need to tap Planeswalkers to use them so it is like using thier abilities sequentially.

The Elderspell . Even if your opponents don't have any planeswalkers you can sacrifice your own in order to power up the other planswalkers you have.

Maybe throw in some more planeswalkers who Can make creature tokens or become creatures themselves for Sword of Truth and Justice .

Lastly, Kamahl's Druidic Vow . Just trust me on this one.

Already made some changesDemMeowsephs

  1. Some Creatures changes I end up adding: Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Luminarch Aspirant . Also changed Citadel Siege for Felidar Retreat as it can give me tokens to sac and more counters not just 2

  2. Cut Mind's Eye , Black Sun's Zenith , Blot Out the Sky , Infernal Offering , Secret Rendezvous and Debtors' Knell

  3. More added: Sword of Truth and Justice , Sign in Blood , Beacon of Unrest , Command the Dreadhorde , Ambition's Cost and Victimize

  4. Doubts with: Custodi Soulbinders as it can give me a lot of tokens but I have to be set up already with my tokens or wait for oponents to set up their own table. I think I can swap it for something more usefull. Scheming Symmetry maybe I can get Profane Tutor until I have a more solid tutor.

Maybe quit some lands for other cards as: Phyrexian Altar The Ozolith Coat of Arms

DemMeowsephs Yeah some prices have been going up like rockets, I guess there is more demand and people try to build more competitive decks.

  1. Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts is funny but yeah not really worth it in the deck.

  2. Keen Duelist is definitely a cheaper option that I will change eventually, it is too risky if you are playing vs high CMC decks.

  3. Gonti, Lord of Luxury is there just to slow/get information about the other decks, he have to go too yeah.

  4. Deathbringer Liege lets me tap and kill creatures everytime I make tokens with Felisa (Tokens are b/w) so I will leave it for now.

  5. Ashen Rider is not supposed to be casted at all but I combo her with Gift of Immortality so I can deny people. Also Gift works with Gray Merchant of Asphodel too.

I agree with the rest you just told me, specially with Coat of Arms , I will also change Blade of the Bloodchief for Sword of Truth and Justice

You are helping me a lot, I really appreciate it, If you prefer/want I can give you my discord user so we can talk through there anytime you want. Hope you have a nice day!

THE SHOW BUTTON DOESN'T WORK OMG HERE IT IS TYPED OUT LIKE A LOSER.

Budget -2 Plains +2 Forest +1 Gemstone Mine -1 Temple of Silence -1 Zagoth Crystal +1 Astral Cornucopia -1 Gyre Sage +1 Fynn, the Fangbearer -1 (3 total) more Plains for a Blight Mamba . I think we are good w/ 38 lands.

Non-Budget Not sure what to cut in this section, but if yo' wallet is feelin' like a pimp, go on brush yo' shoulders off. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Once you add the fetches + shocks, Become Immense becomes...immensely better. Usually will cast for G.

Personal Choices - Prairie Stream - Sunken Hollow + Vivid Grove + Vivid Creek Prairie and sunken will come into play tapped most of the time anyway, so might as well make rainbow colors and get some counters back on them late game.
-1 Render Silent (casting cost is prohibitive). +1 Fuel for the Cause -1 Fathom Mage +1 Steady Progress . Fathom Mage seems iffy for card draw. Steady progress feels more stable, instant speed, and proliferates. -1 Despark +1 Inexorable Tide . Ups your CMC aka mana value by a bit, but I'd rather go the proactive than reactive game plan. -1 Lazav, the Multifarious . He will appear as one of your infecty boiz from the yard, but at that point you're already behind, and he has no forms of evasion. Maybe +1 Sword of Truth and Justice instead. (It's slow) -1 Supreme Verdict (prohibitive casting cost, you're probably the one with the most valuable creatures). +1 Contentious Plan for more draw and more dirty HIV. -1 Phyrexian Juggernaut . Too slow, probably a dead card in your hand, chances of it not getting blocked are small. I imagine best-case scenario is that it goes unblocked and you pump it, but wait...how 'bout Roalesk, Apex Hybrid . Ain't nobody gonna attack you when they get proliferate juices on their shirt.

But wait, do you want to make the deck WORSE? Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter . Take all the turns. 7 mana + a boardstate is a steep setup, but do you want to be a winner, or a JANK-ASS BISS?

I'm not really sure if these are good or not. So this section is useless. Strionic Resonator . Seems kinda win-more. But meh. Idk.

Let's f* with Hop -1 Generous Gift +1 Teferi's Protection . I am a terrible human being.

I most definitely could be wrong in this section. -1 Ancient Tomb . You'll take a heavy amount of damage, and your color requirements are strong. I'd replace with +1 Inkmoth Nexus

Aight baby gurl, bedtime. May your infectious love for infect cause infectious hate upon you. Love, Jake Stremers

arquistar on Osgir, the Reconstructor Conductor of Tokens

I'm toying with a similar build right now. Instead of Mesmeric Orb I'm going with Altar of the Brood for similar effect. I'm also including the Myr package including Myr Galvanizer and Myr Turbine to assemble the package for infinite mana to power the Staff of Domination . I also like the idea of Mana Vault to accelerate to Osgir and then sacrifice and clone it to net 5 mana on a later turn. I feel it's also not a terrible idea to include your favorite "Swords of...". I'm going with Sword of Truth and Justice and Sword of Body and Mind . They're typically lackluster but doubling down on those combat damage triggers sounds spicy.

Also since your deck works slightly around +1/+1 counters, it would be good to expand this a bit. A few cards that could help with this would be Solidarity of Heroes , Kalonian Hydra , Doubling Season , Bioshift , Karn's Bastion , Sword of Truth and Justice , Primordial Hydra .
