Deck Description

What’s going on everyone DNinja89 here and I’m back with another gem or jank. This time we have Asmodeus a mono black life gain. I hope you enjoy the deck and suggestions are welcome. If you want to see it in action then check out my YouTube channel. D-ninja89 or search gem or jank.

How to Play

So obviously this is not the most competitive version of the deck, I’m mainly just working with what I have. So the plan is to draw a ton of cards, gain a ton of life, and burn with Vito.

qq why does nobody use raven form in standard?

Because I’m playing mono black lol, but I do agree it is a good card and when I do use blue I usually play 2-3.

Have you considered durable coilbug ?
Lategame you revive it and just attack, then they either have to let it through, or they block and it dies and you get to play ebondeath.

What made you cut it ?
And how many did you play ?

I played 4 at first then cut it to 3. I mainly cut it due to the games being over before I could make use of it again. The same thing happened with sanitarium skeleton. But like always this is not the final version and I will test with it again. Since I recently hit 5 subs I’m going to try and do a more competitive segment. This is the deck I’m going to use primarily when the segment comes out when the new season beings. So I think I have like 4 or five more days till this season ends. So mainly in between work, gem or janks, and Friday nights brawls I will be testing.

Since it's a card that gives a lategame advantage I'd say 2. If you draw it early you can just pretend to go all in aggro.

There is a "recipe" for black decks at the moment, which is very persistent and is also very imitated by the mythic players. It involves 5 cost planeswalkers and blood on the snow, some black gold producers and a pirate or fisherman.

It's small enough the be inserted into twocolor decks as long as black is one of the colors.

Also the rumors have it that a new jumpstart series will bring modern horizons 1&2 to arena, at least the cards that fi the jumpstart themes.

Since mill is in jumpstart 1 it's a relatively safe bet that Stream of Thought, Iceberg Cancrix and Fractured Sanity might come to arena.
