My first attempt at a mono-black deck. Have a couple floating around in my meta. After building this deck and testing it against my teeg deck and a couple others and i love the way it works out. Seems pretty solid and can lock people down. Has many board sweepers and a couple of different combos.
Any suggestions will help.
So have been playing this deck now for about 2 weeks and it seems to stay alive. Played in a 4 way match against 3 of the toughest players in our local shop, Dralnu, Sharrum, and Nath. All 3 builds are solid and just wreck everyone. In the match i tried to combo out like 4 times and was either countered or had something blown up to stop me. Was able to take out the Dralnu played with an Exsanguinate and Profane command and then the nath player took out the sharrum player. And then he took me out. The problem i seem to have is finding answers to other people trying to combo out or trying to get my combo pieces back from my graveyard. My only way to get stuff from my gy is yagmoths will and its hard to get that off lol. I need to toss boseju in to help it from getting countered. But if anyone knows of any other cards to help me get stuff back other than creatures from my graveyard.

Ambition's Cost and Ancient Craving have been staples in every Mono-Black deck I've made, and Phyrexian Obliterator seems like a powerful black card. Have you tested with any of those.

Obliterator is already on the list and I get plenty of draw with arena and skullclamp. Thanks for the advice though.

Since I run a similar Geth deck, here's a few suggestions:

Bane of the Living
Oblivion Stone - Don't know if you NEED another sweeper, but this is always a solid card.
Mimic Vat - INSANE. Especially with the amounts of mana mono black can generate.
Sacrifice - You've got a lot of mana going on, but sometimes this just gets there.

I completely forgot about Oblivion Stone I defiantly need to find a spot for it. Bane of the Living i don't see lasting long enough to really get used... my play group tends to have a lot of board sweepers, and are often very suspicious of morphs and all the blue players run stifle and trickbind. Mimic Vat could be interesting to toss someones primeval titan on it for some mana ramp or something else. Just need to find some room for it. As far as sacrifice goes... there are not many creatures i have that i would be willing to sac for mana... if anything i would run Ashnod's Altar for sacrificing my tokens... Thanks for the tips and i will try and work O-Stone and Vat in.
