I mean, Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves seem obvious. Next best things are Whispersilk Cloak and maybe Mask of Avacyn. Kaya's Ghostform and similar cards might work as well.

Hey I'm not feeling well for the past few days. I want to take the time to provide some feedback for this deck when I can fully examine it. For now, cabal stronghold should be cut because you don't have enough basics.

Maybe add a Whispersilk Cloak and a Buried Ruin? Perhaps cut one of your swords? Body and mind seems the weakest.

Profet93 thanks for the suggestions. Thespian's Stage will be going in the deck though I have not had the chance to try Deserted Temple and the political aspects of the card. I will have to try Bubbling Muck is one I will have to try out to see if it is worth the slot over other repeatable mana sources. Wedding Invitation is one that I have been back and forth on and may swap in the Whispersilk Cloak for the reasoms you mentioned.

Bubbling Muck - Like rain of filth, but you keep your lands. Beware with urborg and opponents but it's a great ramp spell

Whispersilk Cloak > Wedding Invitation - While wedding replaces itself and is less mana hungry, silk is repeatable and forces interaction pre-combat

Deserted Temple - Untap coffers, nkythos + politics

Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers,deserted temple or opposing utility land.

Profet93- Thanks for the upvote and for asking!

Boardwipes are a problem for any deck that requires a board state. As there are few spells to truly combat boardwipes in mono black, this deck accepts that inevitability, and takes it a step further to exploit its own low toughness of the creatures, to squeeze as much benefit as we can from it.

Zulaport Cutthroat makes a nice aristocratic win, while Elixir gives another shot at a Thrumming Stone play, should a board wipe be limited to creatures. Both Grim Haruspex and Species Specialist allow for a hand refill should your board disappear, and the Elixir keeps your library full.

Ogre Slumlord replaces your nontoken rats with 1/1 rats, while also counting your opponents' dying critters, giving you ALL the rats, for a go-wide win.

Early game, hitting early and aggressively with 3/1 - 5/1 creatures puts you within win range around t6 with some form of modified evasion on a single creature (Rogue's Passage, Whispersilk Cloak, fear from Marrow-Gnawer, and either gravepact or Dictate of Erebos, or the zulaport cutthroat on the board.

Hope I could clear that up, if you have any more questions or suggestions, please feel free to comment further!

Hey just want to say I just built this and so far have been having a blast. I've changed a few things bc of personal preference. I reckon tho that there are some great land cards you could add that would make the deck just better; Witch's Clinic, Scavenger Grounds and Shizo, Death's Storehouse are fantastic lands that i think would help boost umbris. Also Whispersilk Cloak is a great card that ill be probably be adding this to my deck as well.

A few nice cards to add unblockability: Rogue's Passage, Key to the City, Sonic Screwdriver, and Whispersilk Cloak.
