Tourach, Dread Cantor

Legendary Creature — Human Cleric

Kicker (You may pay an additional as you cast this spell.)

Protection from white ((Remember the acronym debt.) This creature can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything white. Anything white attached to this immediately falls off.)

Whenever an opponent discards a card, put a +1/+1 counter on this.

When this enters the battlefield, if this was kicked, target opponent discards two cards at random.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this Basics of this Deck! Any thoughts on updating this to a Post-MH2 Modern Deck?

Mishra's Factory to replace the Mutavaults?

Vindicate because it's freakin' Vindicate (can't argue with that reasoning!)

Bloodchief's Thirst is an option!

Fracture for the Sideboard!

A Tourach, Dread Cantor or 2 might be neat!

Also, not sure if it's playable or would find a spot in here, but the new The Raven Man has me intrigued... & if he's making more Token creatures, Bone Shards & Village Rites might be solid too!

There's also the Urza's Saga "Saga Pox" route... but I think I like what you're already doing more than Saga's.

I love Rack/Pox stuff & have been debating what style of the deck to build for Modern & this just feels super neat, fun, & semi-unique! Cheers!

My suggestion would be to play 23 lands, and only 4 cards costing 4 mana, with everything else below this cost.

As far as other solid removal/control cards, consider: Fatal Push, Smallpox, and maybe March of Wretched Sorrow. Black control generally excels at removing threats before they're on the battlefield, so stuff like Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are also pretty great.

Good mono-black creatures to consider include: Dauthi Voidwalker, Tourach, Dread Cantor, Murderous Rider, and Gatekeeper of Malakir - i'd suggest just keeping your Phyrexian Obliterator and then removing your other creatures for a selection of these.

It sounds like you're trying to play your deck as an attrition/value-engine gameplan. A good approach for that would be to try and mirror card-counts of "The Rock" decks (which is a Green-Black attrition/value-engine deck). They run around 23 lands, 15-16 creatures, 5-7 hand-removal cards, and 14-17 killspells. In your case you probably want to lean-higher on the hand-removal cards (so, 7-8) because being monoblack means you don't have many good options for removing noncreature permanents once they're in play (so better to remove them before they get into play)

Thanks Andramalech! I actually really like the flavour of Tourach, Dread Cantor. He comes with his own optional Hymn :) I'm going to play around with this idea and see if anything comes from it!

Found some!

Formatting won't allow me to show the retro frame, but all of these do various bits to your end, and have a retro-framed alternative printing. And minus Force of Vigor, most of these are relatively cheap. I hope it helps!

Nathanael97 Urborg is there for the fetches in the event that i cant crack them in response to a blood moon or the like. i have considered Tourach, Dread Cantor but he doesnt do a whole hell of a lot for our devotion and thats what i was looking to create with this build.

another deck that i actually need to build and play with, i think it can actually be more competitive than it may seem just for the fact that most folks arent looking for it, so on its face it just kinda looks like a mono black vampire tribal thing, and they may not take the match as seriously as they should. Again, i need to actually put this thing together but im trying to take it one deck at a time and right now, karntry boy's tool box is my main deck.

What‘s the purpose of running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth when all your mana-producing lands are swamps anyway? You‘ll just manafix your opponent^^

I might also consider running slightly more removal, since the deck is rather grindy.

Have you considered Tourach, Dread Cantor?

Really fun list!

There's lots of cheap legacy cards that you should consider. Dark Ritual, Hymn to Tourach, Smallpox, Blackmail, The Rack, and Shrieking Affliction to name a few. Tourach, Dread Cantor is pretty good to.
