Ixalan Brews, pt. 7 – Monoblack Improvise

There was a deck with various synergies pretty much all over the place I used to play. It loses some cards in rotation, but much of it’s core is still intact.

I’m not sure where I got this from. It’s not necessarily very good, but it’s fun to play. Actually, it wasn’t that bad either. It was a nice metagame choice, but not necessarily good against everything.

[deck]
[lands]
2 Westvale Abbey
22 Swamp
[/lands]
[creatures]
2 Herald of Anguish
4 Gifted Aetherborn
4 Weaponcraft Enthusiast
4 Walking Ballista
4 Metallic Mimic
2 Drana, Liberator of Malakir
2 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
[/creatures]
[spells]
4 Fatal Push
4 Animation Module
2 Aethersphere Harvester
4 Grasp of Darkness
[/spells]
[/deck]

I did some small changes based on what cards I had available at the time, but not much. What are we losing in the rotation?

[draft]Westvale Abbey
Drana, Liberator of Malakir
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Grasp of Darkness[/draft]

That does leave quite a whole in the deck, especially since we lose most of a tribe, which might mean we want to lose the [card]Gifted Aetherborn[/card]s as well. So, what could we use here to fill the holes? Maybe we could use our Gifted friend as an Aetherborn rather than a Vampire. This would give us access to…

[draft]Vengeful Rebel
Syndicate Trafficker
Yahenni, Undying Partisan[/draft]

Also, this would make [card]Weaponcraft Enthusiast[/card] better.

I know this doesn’t really make this an Ixalan deck, but it’s Ixalan Standard, even if all the cards are from Kaladesh block. It might be a Kaladesh block deck. I’d also put in a couple of [card]Renegade Map[/card]s to make the revolt better and help with the demon.
