Are there any fun mono black commanders that don't cost an arm and a leg to make?

I keep trying to find one, but all the shells are expensive as hell

Evil_kitten

Someone recommend me a black deck so I can use my vampiric tutor rather than having it sit in a box. I currently play and enchantment and storm deck, so I was thinking maybe doomsday zur, or maybe something silly like gonti.

Am I too Spikey for EDH?

I don't think of myself as "that guy," but I don't think anyone does, really. I don't even really particularly think of myself as obsessed with victory, or going hardcore for wins constantly. I like a good challenge. I like building decks. I like seeing broken interactions go off. I'm a control player and really enjoy playing blue. I like solving the problems other players create.

I started playing magic in 2014 just before fate reforged. I cut my teeth on videos from TCC as I learned how to play the game in part from the friends I play commander with now.

Finding Standard boorish and too expensive I turned to modern. Finding myself lacking the amount of money to invest for much more than a Mono U Tron deck that I still love to play to death and lacking much of a playgroup in my current group of friends and hearing horror stories about the local cardshop, I turned to Commander.

This all started when I built my first commander deck, Daretti. Built is the wrong turn because all I really did was buy the precon, do some modifications over time and go. I built in Karn and Mycosynth lattice as a win condition.

And then my playgroup got batshit scared of it.

So I built Meren, more lovingly crafting and tuning the deck as something that would take on the whole table and make them team up against me. It's not even really done and I don't even play it at full strength most of the time.

And then my playgroup got batshit scared of it and it turned into me trying to play as hardcore as possible and winning before the game really started or dialing back and getting stomped.

So then, finally, I turned to you lovely folks of tg for advice for a new deck that I could build on the cheap. I eventually decided on Zur, the Enchanter.

@5mileys
Why I didn't think this would be a problem sooner, I'm not sure. What possessed me to design a deck for a tutor on a stick commander, even on a tight budget, and think it was going to end in anything but pain?

After a rushed three day design that involved a lot of cross referencing, examining combos and ideas, and thinking I had a grip on how well my playgroup would respond (in game) to the deck and it's synergies . . .

It's possibly even more problematic than Meren.

I'm totally frustrated now. I don't know if EDH is even the right format for me to be playing considering I can't even apparently build what I think is a low power deck.

Am I too much of a spike?

Am I legacy player lacking the meaning to play it, and so turning to modern, lacking the means to play modern and so playing EDH?

I just don't know how to handle this anymore because just trying to play a janky deck doesn't really appeal to me. I don't want to start some crazy arms race in my group (partially because at least one person is both a sore loser and a sore winner SOMEHOW). I don't want to just abandon this group because they're the reason I play magic and they're my friends.

I love Magic. I like playing Magic. I think I love just about every part of the game from looking at card interactions, to playing them and setting them off, to deck design, and improving all those things. I love the opportunities EDH affords for deckbuilding. I think it creates interesting challenges and creates interesting play environments. I love the fact that some cards that could other be useless could be totally broken and visa versa.

I just don't know what I'm doing anymore with any of this.

daretti, one of the strongest artifact commanders there is
meren, the "I don't care what youre doing, I'm going off and there's nothing you can do about it" commander
ducking Zur, THE most broken commander there is

Try picking a theme and a budget and rolling with it. EDH isn't for you if you can't handle not playing the best cards possible every deck. It's supposed to be about doing silly shenanigans while drinking beer with friends.

For a budget start, get the 2014 black precon deck.

@5mileys
Shockingly youre story is very similair to mine. When my group of mates picked up mtg I was the main guy who researched interesting combos and ways to control the game and I would always either get ignored and win the game or be ganged up on by the rest of the table.

My way around this aws to play a more pillow-fort style of control. Basically focus on stopping the group from attacking you and use political cards to incentivize attacks against other opponents.

Hope this helps, and if you can find an lgs and start playing there to sate your competitive side.

@Snarelure
Nah you're fine. Neither Meren or Daretti are Tier 1 or even close.

Zur can be Tier 1 but if you're casting him at all you're probably not as tuned as you think you are.

There's quite a few T1 options out there and T2 decks are where I usually play with my metas. They're fun and powerful, can combo out of nowhere, but aren't the most optimal all the time.

I do have a T1 deck though that nobody expects. Shits on all the people who still think Tasigur or Jarad are good, and surprises that Zur player who insists that the only way to win is DD+Labman.

In general, you retard, if your entire game depends on one specific land to win build a new deck.

If you are playing a commander that cares about lands like Angry Omnath and such then I am sure you would want ways to recur your lands.

I keep a Crucible of Worlds in Jhoira because suspending it behind MLD really rubs salt in the wound.

@Garbage Can Lid
there's basically 2 ways to build yahenni in my opinion. there's token stax like this user said (@RumChicken
) and then there's a more typical creature-hating-and-reanimating-goodstuffy build that i've already tested to be functional on xmage.

yahenni isn't really a token synergy commander either in my opinion. he only needs to sac maybe once a turn, if that, and you don't need to commit to a token theme just because of that. reanimator builds are very resilient to hate (even GY hate) and typically more fun.

token synergies are pretty weak in monoblack anyway. most of the token generators in mononlack are total shit and the actual synergies are either really, really bad (zulaport) or something staxy. even stax isn't even that good, i think smokestack and descent into madness are way too slow. i think the best case scenario casting something like Death Cloud while you have a ton of bullshit tokens on board, but that's a bit of a magical christmasland scenario. rest of the time, stax is just going to make people hate you in game and also irl. but to be fair, i haven't actually tested stax that much in monoblack so i could be talking out of my ass.

it's true grave pact requires stuff to sac, but usually just saccing your idle ETB creatures like gray merchants and rune-scarred demons is enough if there is really something worth removing.

continuing with my suggested cuts and adds for a reanimator build

w8t4u
w8t4u

@RumChicken
I hate to say this but, have you ever played with black? Because you're cuts are bad and you additions are worse. Thanks for trying to help but I'm not sure what you're going for here. Cut Nether Traitor and Bloodghast, both creatures that can recur themselves though out the entire game? Demon of Dark Schemes is another Massacre Wurm and Damnation? Really? I was sort of with you on stuff to add until Delraich. Delraichand Demon of Death's Gate are both sac outlets, which is OK, but it only works for casting them, also, they have no utility for anything except being beaters, which I can't stand. I don't like any of the Poxes, mostly because they're one time effects that are also, they're semectrical, which I can't stand. Descent into Madness...no. Just no.

Again, thank you, I really do appreciate it, but what I envision the deck to be and what you recommend don't mesh.

Fireshrieker
Dauthi Embrace
Lashwrithe
Nightmare Lash
Sword of Vengeance
Trailblazer's Boots
i don't think these things are worth it. your strength in monoblack lies in your ability to kill literally everything on board and reanimate your shit for pennies. why bother giving your guy unblockable, trample or double strike when you can just smash the entire board to smitheroons with a necromantic selection and then smack some kid for 30 damage from all the dead creatures?

Mutilate
it will smash your yahenni even whe's indestructible. replace with crux of fate.

No Mercy
no one will be attacking you if you're playing your deck right and killing everything relevant. either replace with a board wipe or draw (to thin your deck)

Phyrexian Reclamation
too low value. replace with strands of night.

here's my deck that you can look at for ideas, but i should say that it's not optimized for maximum power. it runs a bunch of "fun but not that great" cards like grave betrayal, black market, blood artist and coffin queen because i have nowhere else to put them and because this is supposed to be a "have fun" kind of deck

Thank you for your help! Took alot of your suggestions and made a few cuts. Only 11 more cards.to go! Also, part of the reason I didn't have more reanimation stuff in the deck is because Reanimator has died a cold, harsh death in my playgroup. Even though EVERYONE plays black in my playgroup, they all mainboard, as a rule, Bojuka Bog, Tormod's Crypt, and Relic of Progenitus. It fucking sucks. That being said, even if I can't run the fun stuff, I don't really need to worry about anyone's graveyard except my own, which is fine.

The absolute must haves:
-Bloodline keeper
-Stromkirk captain
-Kalitas, traitor of ghet.
-Captivating vampire (for his sole lord effect, his activated ability is just the cherry on top)
-Bloodlord of vaasgoth
-Vampire Nocturnus
-Nirkana revenant
-Malakir Bloodwitch (some people will tell you this card is bad, its not. It can make you gain a ton of life, which you will need if you run cards like necropotence)
-Butcher of Malakir
-Blood artist (things are always dying in edh, why not ping somebody and gain some life while it happens)

Flameblow

@CouchChiller
Now for some non-creature recommendations:

-Torpor orb: most vampires dont have ETB's so why not hose decks that do.
-Bloodchief ascension: your opponents can even activate this card for you without knowing it, but you will be the one reaping its benefits. It can draw lots of hate, so be careful.
-Necropotence: One of the best cards in the format. Just run this card.
-blade of the bloodchief: not a fan of equipments in general, but this one is cheap and ir has some crazy synergy.
-chandra's ignition: this one may come as a surprise, but vampires can get pretty huge with +1/+1 counters. A big vampire detonated at the right moment can swing the game in your favor.
-basilisk collar: just amazing with Olivia or with any flying creature

No, you completely missed the point.

If you're going to make a long post, format things well and it's not so bad. If you're going to help someone build a deck, explain the reason behind what you're doing so they can fill in the gaps with alternatives, depending on their library. If you're not going to do either, don't be a pretentious fuck about it.

Finally, if someone's giving you criticism, and you feel like you really need to act like a bitch, at least read their post carefully. Like I said in my original post, instead of explaining what you're doing, you just randomly listed vampires, and if you explained the theory behind what you were doing, you can THEN mention specific things that fill mechanical niches.

Otherwise? You're just a charlatan that knows a few cards.

Sorry if i sounded pretentious. What I mean to say is that you dont need an overarching theory to brew a tribal deck. You could have one, and the deck could certainly be better or more flavorful, but if you just made "vampire tribal feat. generic goodstuff" the deck is going to work decently. With that in mind, I listed some vampires who I think are obvious must haves, and who in my opinion dont require an explanation (you dont need someone to tell you why a Bloodline keeper is good in a vampire tribal, right?). I also provided an explanation where i deemed one was necessary.

overarching theory
tribal deck

Outside of like combo tribes like elves and goblins, most tribal decks are "slam good creatures in that tribe, slam tribal effects, slam EDH staples, and there you go." Like vampires just kinda suck (no pun intended), there's nothing really "cute" to do with them compared to elves or goblins which can combo or have cool synergy occasionally.

To be fair, explaining a "vampire tribal" as a beatdown deck is misleading. You could run a madness/discard matters theme, you could run a grave pact style token sacrifice theme, you could even run a thematic lifelink damage sort of thing.

As a new player, if someone says "just throw in good creatures in that tribe with some staples" you wind up with a 5.42 CMC abomination filled with complicated devotion and a nonsensical strategy. Just because someone wants a tribal doesn't mean they don't want a good deck, and no amount of door of destinies/obelisk of urd is going to fix that.

I would agree if Goyf was 70$ but the extra buck is for the low amount of physical copies out there .

You've got plenty of options, just depends on what you want to build specifically and what colors you want to be in.
Starting at the lowest overall cost, difficulty to assemble, and (in some cases) power, I'd suggest Gonti- abuse his ETB by using him as sacrifice-and-reanimate fuel as much as you can. If you don't want to go mono, Grenzo makes for a decent reanimator (though you probably don't have the artifact parts on hand)... Most Golgari generals work outside of Varolz.

In three-color, Sidisi is a decent choice, so is Alesha, and if you've got the right cards/desire to play her, Queen Marchesa can work well as a reanimator. Marchesa, the Black Rose is such a good reanimator that you won't actually need too much extra reanimation, hence my suggestion for her Mardu version.

Alesha's also a decent choice.

Do you mean the one on the front of the box? Sure. I can see that. You lose zedruu and Mimeoplasm but all others "losses" are acceptable.

Do you mean every new legendary creature that came out of the box? No. Not cool. Some of the secondary commanders are pretty neat and aren't inherently degenerate. In fact a lot of them are effect exist anyway but are now just more streamlined.

When will Wizards stop printing things that fuck with the commander experience so hard? They've shown they can make cool cards for commander that have nothing to do with fucking with the command zone. C11 did it. The Secondary/tertiary commanders all seem fine. What's the dealio rogelio?

I'm totally unsure what to do next as far as deckbuilding goes and the brews I'm working on at the moment are going nowhere. I have an absolute shitload of possible commanders, four concurrent brews, and no idea what to actually build. Right now, I've got the following ideas in my head:
Varolz's 30-Minute Workout (Pretty standard Varolz build, except it also runs Vhati Il-dal and some -X/-X stuff.
Ruric Thar Goodstuff-ed With Creatures (pretty standard Ruric Thar build with a small amount of land-matters theming.
Yasova's Legendary Party: A legendary deck, in that it'll run as many legendary creatures as I can pack into it. Short list includes Ulrich, Tana, Jhoira, Jori En, Rashmi, and Edric, though I'd really love to get a couple of the real Temur powerhouses (Maelstrom, Animar) even if Yasova is the commander. Might also end up absorbing my potential Ruric and Rashmi lists and becoming some kind of amalgam of those.

I'm open to other commander's suggestions, I have had bad luck with legendaries since I got into magic and I have only pulled 4 or 5, none too fit for commander. Maybe Fumiko could work.

I love it to death it's my most spikey deck simply because I'd wanted to build it for so long that when I was finally able to I started going all out ... minus the ridiculous landbase.
Can post a list if you like but I don't claim it's a perfect deck, far from it in fact.

I would like to see a list if only for the mana base. Planning on building a Horde of Notions deck and am interested in seeing how a budget mana base would look.

My original basis was 3 of each basic and 5 tri-taplands (I used the shards series but the khans series is another option). From there it basically turned into "as many any-color options as I can get" And whatever else I could pick up in the local playgroup through trades.

Without the expensive manabase, it's slow, but fun. I'm lucky my local meta (the two to four guys I play with) isn't a fast one to begin with. I am in the middle of updating this with more basics and less tap lands.

Jesus gargleblasting batman, that's going straight into my sen triplets deck. How have I never seen this before.

@iluvmen
the deck is good and gitgud is a great commander, but dredge really wasn't my play style
i played the deck for about half a year and i literally never had gitrog + titania out at the same time during my upkeep
every single time one would get removed

Do you guys think the legal Moxen are worth an include? I found a Chrome and an Opal in an old deckbox from my 60-card days and was considering finding space in Slobad

Because it's a super weird card that's old, hasn't been reprinted in a long time, and hasn't seen play in anything real.

Personally I like it in Mizzex since you can cast that and mana geyser to double up the value.

Gitrog for me is mostly speed-ramping by dredging/discarding to put out fatties quickly. Draw engine is great too with all that synergy of dredging in general.

Either kill on sight, or fuck with relentlessly. If I'm playing kalemne I will usually hit them for 12-18 on turn 3.

Are they that strong in edh? I figured creature based strats wouldnt be as powerful as more combo centric decks.

Not him but I've never had troubles keeping up with power level in my meta. A lot of their strength comes from their "support" so to speak and how smart you play them. Fastest win for me was T4 (Which I know isn't exactly impressive) and at that point I had access to every card in my deck and infinite damage production.
While it may not be as stable as GitGud Monstah or other higher-tier combo decks, it's a really fun combo shell to run with. They're fun and versatile and can be built either combo or aggro/damage based so that's at least why I enjoy them so much.
Plus it's fun sometimes to be the archenemy and watch your opponents sweat as your board state explodes. It's the only deck I have that does that to my friends so it holds a special place in my heart.

Speaking of Daxos, he's one of my 3 decks (the other two being Ezuri and Alesha). I picked him up for ten bucks from a guy quitting magic, and he's kind of fun to play- I've had some brutally oppressive rounds with friends where I lock down the board using the enchantments, but he's dull as an actual commander. What would a good BW enchantments matter replacement be?

I don't think there is one, Athreos is an enchantment i suppose.

You could add blue and go with Zur but he might be too strong for what you want
