[Sideboarding] Mono-Black Sideboard

  • #1
    Here is mine (Mono B)

    3 Corrosive Gale
    Vs Spirit Delver

    3 Phyrexian Obliterator
    Vs Mono g and WRR

    3 grafdiggers cage
    Vs the GY and pod (Meta has tons)

    3 Massacre Wurm
    Vs tokens and delver/humans

    3 Black Suns zenith
    Generally against aggro

    While I do like it, there are still some holes. Ideas?

    Massacre Wurm is bad, it costs far too much at 6 mana to run.

    Black Sun's Zenith is way too counter productive, if you are playing Zombies you should be very aggressive with a creature heavy list no matter the version.

    Graff Diggers Cage seems bad personally, I think a more versatile and less vulnerable card is Surgical Extraction to take it's place.

    Corrosive Gale is really bad, there's a reason everyone has ratchet bomb in their sideboard you should think about that.

    Corrsoive Gale isnt terrible.
    Its actually pretty good against TS and Esper Spirits.

    Grafdigger's is totally anti-synergistic with our best zombies, Messenger and Crawler... why not Nihil Spellbomb?

    I like BSZ in the sideboard... but I have a hard time boarding it in because you have to check yourself before you wreck yourself.

    I love Massacre Wurm, but I cant see myself reliably casting this.

    Obliterators are in my MD... so XD

    I run BSZ's in my sideboard specifically for Tempered Steel. The only way I win that matchup is with BSZ for 1~2 after they've vomited their deck onto the battlefield. Wiping their board, while killing my crawlers and resetting messengers, leaves me with the advantage. If I happen to have a Captain out as well, that's just icing.

    Seems reasonable but overly narrow to me.

    *shrug* as with most things, depends on what you expect to face. There has always been at least 1 TS in the top 8 of the tournaments I go to.

    Isn't TS our worst match up? Doesn't that mean we can be overly narrow?
    blue mana black mana red mana green mana white mana

    It doesn't seem overly effective enough for it's worth to be overly narrow. You comprehend? Tongue

    I'm currently using:

    3x Distress - control matchups mostly
    3x Phyrexian Obliterator - RDW and MGA
    3x Ratchet Bomb - For tokens and problem cards mono-black can't deal with
    3x Nihil Spellbomb - For graveyard shenanigans
    2x Black Sun's Zenith - Tempered Steel, possibly some other matchups
    1x Sword of War and Peace - for all the white aggro decks out there

    4 Ratchet Bomb
    Primarly against tokens and TS

    3 Nihil Spellbomb
    Flare and GY strategies

    3 Steel Sabotage
    Any artifacts strategies, TS, also works at least like a Vapor Snag against Batterskull or Wurmcoil

    2 Mana Leak
    This card I dislike most I think I will get rid of it totally because I sb-in it very rarely.

    3 Porcelain Legionnaire
    Against Mirran and when I have to sb-out my mainboarded Obliterators (this meaning always against W/x deck).


    I think I will make my list more similiar to Trey's, moving Obliterators to sideboard and moving in probably Cemetery Reapers.
