Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools Discussion

brandonplaysmagic -- Thanks!! I always like to try and make things a little bit more interesting than having to play against Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, Yarok, the Desecrated, Kess, Dissident Mage and Golos, Tireless Pilgrim (RIP) decks all the time. Experimenting with lesser known commanders is so fun!
Diamanacle -- Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools is an amazing card and would be a fantastic Rakdos sacrifice commander. I don't have a Vial Smasher the Fierce but he seems super good, too! Exile cards always seem to cost a bit more, CMC-wise, which is why I opted for cheaper removal like Terminate or ones that could hit multiple types like Bedevil and Feed the Swarm. It does sound like a good, though. I'll add some to the maybeboard and see which ones I have laying around. As for tutors, they'd be great and I do have a one Demonic and Vampiric Tutor along with a Diabolic Intent in other decks. I was already debating adding them in, but... I have no idea what to cut. Suggestions?
As for copying this deck, have at it! If you end up posting it on here just mention me as an inspiration or something. I'd love to see it!

But i would disagree with your thoughts on Ink-Shield. I mean, 5 mana isn’t pretty cheap but can’t count how often it helped me through dangerous situations or even was part to prepare the final blow. The thing is, for each one dmg you prevented, you create a 2 power flier… you can attack with them to deal lethal dmg or clamp ‘em or so. I count it as a very powerful tool.
Maybe you can give me your thoughts on my Teysa-rebuild. I tried to make it more streamlined.

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

ShadowUmbreon She's worse at drawing cards than Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools and Liliana, Dreadhorde General . She's also worse at making tokens than Tevesh and Elspeth, Sun's Champion . However, her emblem is pretty unique and she's hard to deal with when we have a lot of creatures out. Since we're not really trying to attack people, I don't think the emblem is insane, but it's a wincon. If the rules work for multiple emblems, Teysa is the place where they're most easily obtainable. I'd probably play Tevesh before her, but she's competitive for the 3rd planeswalker slot. If you're a D&D fan or otherwise think she's cooler than Tevesh or Liliana, I'd go ahead and play her. She'll never be bad in any aristocrats deck.

Nice deck! I'd suggest Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools for Villis,Broker of Blood so as to lower your CMC
As on point Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is for theme, I do believe I'd cut it for No Mercy .
I also built Yawgmoth, Check out The Good Dr. , but did go the way of life loss for creature death. Hope those ideas help!

Pikobyte From the few games ive played so far, deck seems pretty control-y, with Butcher of Malakir and Dictate of Erebos out, can pretty much boardwipe as long as i have some tokens or something. Having Spore Frog and Siren Stormtamer out can stop most things from what ive seen.
As for budget, I might not be able to afford some of the more really expensive cards but i have a bit of pocket change. On my list to add i have Caustic Caterpillar , Buried Alive and i thinking of adding Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools as well. any other suggestions?

Yeah, Demonic is just an auto-include. If you have it or are willing to purchase it, chuck it into every black deck you have. That said . . .
Mairsil, the Pretender , Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools plus Kodama of the East Tree , Korvold, Fae-Cursed King , and Kenrith, the Returned King are the black decks I own. Maybe one of those tickles your fancy.
