Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Legendary Land

Each land is a Swamp in addition to its other land types.

All budget pending, another Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth couldn't hurt, 1-2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for all the devotion you'll have and I'd highly recommend a playset of fetches to thin out your build. Prismatic Vista shiuld be fine since you're mono colored.

some upgrades you may like for modern

Cabal Coffers more mana than you know what to do with

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth makes up for coffers not producing black, opens up the ability to use other utility lands in the future

Vesuva more coffers!

Dauthi Voidwalker would you like that big creature they just sacrificed?

Liliana of the Veil sacrifice and discard at your discression

Torment of Hailfire remember all that cabal coffers mana?

Crawling Barrens another great place to put all that black mana

Surgical Extraction could be good mainboard, maybe sideboard?

Invoke Despair sacrifice all the things

Go Blank maybe sideboard graveyard removal

Gray Merchant of Asphodel not sure if it makes sense but you do already have one devotion card and gary is great

Feed the Swarm all the sacrifice enchantment things could prob be replaced with this and even this is maybe sideboard material - always do your best not to give the opponent a choice

Liliana's Triumph could replace some of the libation, especially if you end up adding lilly

Castle Locthwain hooray for card draw!

Dark Confidant hooray for card draw!

Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek maybe main, maybe sideboard. what if they have no creatures?

Recommended Includes

Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Arcane Signet for more ramp and remove three basic lands. You can run 37 or less

Skullclamp, Reassembling Skeleton, Treacherous Blessing, Victimize, Gray Merchant of Asphodel for more card draw and recursion and remove Cordial Vampire, Xathrid Necromancer, Bloodcrazed Paladin, Undead Augur, Maskwood Nexus, and Doomed Dissenter. They are all different tribal cards and you can't rely on seeing Maskwood Nexus every game.

If looking for long term updrades you can never go wrong with Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Black Market Connections, Bitterblossom, Crypt Ghast, and Pitiless Plunderer

Personally I'd run a token generator or blink cmdr like Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward (with your choice of background) as I like the idea of using Settle the Wreckage as a ramp spell and I think it works well with him. Basri Ket and Launch the Fleet are similar effects as Abdel.

You could also use Swords to Plowshares as a Rampant Growth.

Expedition Map to get Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Kormus Bell to turn your plains into creatures which you can now flicker more easily as well and benefit on etbs.

Tomik, Distinguished Advokist is worth considering to add to the deck if you go the Kormus Bell route as your land creatures basically have hexproof now.

Additionally you could use cards like Zuran Orb or Troubled Healer in combination with Faith's Reward/Second Sunrise/Planar Birth for extra landfall triggers. If you are running the Kormus Bell combo you could use creature sac-outlets like Altar of Dementia or Phyrexian Altar. But if the sac outlets don't play into the rest of the deck you might be better of running Oswald Fiddlebender as your cmdr to ensure you get the right combination of artifacts.

Zuran Orb also pairs well with Aetherflux Reservoir.

A roundabout and rather inefficient lands-matter removal would be Soul Sculptor + Aura Fracture.

Also can't go wrong with Sun Titan + fetch lands (i.e. Fabled Passage). If you go the flicker route you can get some great value out of this. Alternatively Sevinne's Reclamation/Crucible of Worlds also work well with fetch-lands and landfall

TLDR: Landfall-Flicker or Landfall-Recursion or combination of both.

I actually really like the inclusion of 4 Voidwalkers since it gives the undying cards another target besides Grief, especially since one voidwalker can cast cards exiled with a different Voidwalker (or its past dead self).

Having so many fetches in mono B for deck thinning is probably not necessary imo. I would probably put like 2-3 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth along with 3-4 Urza's Saga. Urborg also goes pretty well with a couple horizon lands like Silent Clearing. Force of Despair is a cool card that a lot of 8rack players were excited to test out when it got spoiled, personally I don't think running 3 copies is a great idea in a deck already pitching cards to Grief but you could maybe run 3 combined between mainboard and sideboard.

Path of Peril is a really funny boardwipe since a) you can sack your Dauthi anyways and b) it doesn't hit Grief. Obviously some antisynergy with Saga but its probably fine if you sequence plays correctly.

This is definitely a deck where I would put some copies of Surgical Extraction in the sideboard.

20 lands is probably on the low side, although you aren't running any Raven's Crime. Need testing for that one.

The tweaks I'd make before playtesting would probably be:

Mainboard:

-4 Bloodstained Mire -4 Verdant Catacombs -2 Force of Despair -2 Shrieking Affliction

+2 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth +4 Urza's Saga +1 Godless Shrine +1 Silent Clearing +1 Pithing Needle +1 Nihil Spellbomb +1 Path of Peril +1 Bloodchief's Thirst/Funeral Charm/Dismember idk

Reasoning: with Saga, you can cut on Afflictions since you can tutor racks more consistently, Needle and Spellbomb are just mainboard saga target staples, and then some other removal to replace Force of Despair. Funeral Charm can let a big construct through with Urborg. What removal you choose to run is probably meta dependent.

Sideboard:

This is definitely a lot more meta dependent so I can't comment as much.

Here Necromentia can probably be replaced with Surgical Extraction.

Go Blank is decent grave hate but can be replaced with extra Nihil Spellbomb or 4 Leyline of the Void, personal preference. Also good to note that Go Blank can sometimes be too slow (vs grinding breach) and also doesn't shut down some decks as effectively as leyline like Murktide, Scam, Grinding Station, Yawgmoth, Living End, etc while Leyline stops all of those in their tracks.

Delirium Skeins is a sideboard card against Leyline of Sanctity if thats ever a problem.

Path of Peril or Bontu's Last Reckoning can replace Damnation if you find yourself badly needing a t3 boardwipe.

Collective Brutality classic sideboard card against burn, and probably much better than March of Wretched Sorrow in 95% of situations.

You can also move the Spellbomb + Needle package to the sideboard if you think mainboard is too crowded with the scam package.

Profet93,

Thank you for the nice words, this is my signature deck of signature decks and have put the most most time (and money...so much money) into building it into what it is today. This deck is forever a work in progress, for as tuned as it is there is always room for improvement - so I always appreciate any and all criticism and suggestions. Speaking of which - Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth are indeed powerful lands - but only within context. The pros don't outweigh the cons with those suggestions in my opinion - I don't run any Beacon of Creation or Cabal Coffers effects so I don't have any way to really "cash in" on these lands past having them fix my manabase. But like you said fixing the manabase of my opponents is the last thing I'd ever want to do, so i'll have to take a pass on those suggestions.

Delay is absolutely wonderful counter magic. Most often i'd end up delaying a turn 2 or 3 Najeela, the Blade-Blossom - which would then be dealt with when it hits the battlefield. Another great play I managed to pull off with Delay was "countering" a Swords to Plowshares that was aimed at my Commander. On my next turn I simply tutored for and cast a Crystalline Sliver. No one managed to cast a board wipe so when the time counters were all removed the Swords to Plowshares simply failed to find. Honestly, I've never been disappointed by Delay and is definitely one of my all time favorites - it always gives me just enough time to dig for an answer.

Toxic Deluge is just an old hold over from my previous meta. Alot of creatures were lower to the ground as most of my friends played combo decks that relied on some key creatures or played with creatures that had reliable methods of gaining protection or indestructible. I used to run Damnation, but I also have a full art foil Damn that i'm considering trying out as well. The verdict is still out on what I should run in that card slot to be honest, but i'm more than interested in your thoughts on what would be the most efficient option available for mass removal.

Once I managed to use Deflecting Swat to target a Expropriate. Obviously this was a late game play, but I knew that the Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign player had something up their sleeve and properly baited out the big spell by tapping out. It also helped that I had a Fierce Guardianship in hand as well in case someone wanted to thwart my plans. Everyone scooped after the swat resolved.

Thanks for commenting on the deck, i'll think more on your suggestions. Happy New Year to you, by the way. Do you have any acquisitions or decks your want to build in 2023?
