A New and Exciting Beginning
The End of an Era
  • posted a message on Bitter Dark Shadow
    Hey all! I’m excited to share my mono black legacy build that I’ve been developing for a long time. I used to play smallpox, Lilly, Sinkhole, Hymmn, etc type builds however I don’t believe that land destruction is as effective anymore or at least these days, and I’m also tired of fighting uphill battles as in those builds our opponents have much better top decks that we do. I want to play mono black with a different style of power, where we use our life total as a resource AND knockout power!

    3x Wasteland
    2x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
    2x Prismatic Vista
    2x Polluted Delta
    1x Marsh Flats
    7x Swamps
    = 17

    2x Snuff Out
    4x Mishra’s Bauble
    4x Street Wraith
    = 10

    4x Dark Ritual
    4x Thoughtseize
    3x Inquisition of Kozilek
    1x Fatal Push
    1x Bloodchiefs Thirst
    4x Death’s Shadow
    = 17

    3x Bitterblossom
    3x Dark Confidant
    2x Collective Brutality
    1x Night’s Wisper
    1x Sign in Blood
    1x Umezawe’s Jitte
    = 11

    2x Rotting Regisaur
    = 2

    3x Gurmag Angler
    = 3

    = 60

    I had Hymn in here as it’s one of my favourite spells ever, however I went with Collective Brutality as a two of, as especially with the extra card draw in this build it provides me with so many options, especially having some control over my life total, and I may want to squeeze one more in.

    I’d appreciate any thoughts on this build as my two eyes and limited decks to play against can benefit from other perspectives! In testing though this deck has been an absolute beast and very very fun to play!

    Thank you
