So if I was trying to make a GOOD deck, Chainer would probably the general instead of the coolest looking guy this side of Homelands. And there would probably be a lot less Shades. BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT.

I just wanted to make a Shade beatdown deck since it's a very neglected and ignored tribal type, plus a lot of Shades pretty much have the same effect. So I also put in as many "you can't block me" effects and mana multipliers as possible at Black's disposal.

Leave comments and suggestions below. :3

Please let me know how Killing Wave works out, I've been attempting to justfiy its inclusion in my own monoblack control, but I'm warry of its "apparent" lack of power.

Also, why no Griselbrand?

Feels like it needs some:

Vesuva
Miren, the Moaning Well/High Market
Sculpting Steel
Sword of Feast and Famine


And I feel like:
Loxodon Warhammer is sub-par.
Enslave is too mana intensive and vulnerable
Kiku's Shadow - Why not just run Kiku, Knight's Flower?
