Guilds of Ravnica Brews, pt. 5 – Monoblack Midrange

I mean, come on, I have to try….

What does Guilds of Ravnica bring to the table? Actually, surprisingly many cards.

[draft]Midnight Reaper
Blood Operative
Doom Whisperer
Plaguecrafter
Price of Fame
Ritual of Soot
Whisper Agent[/draft]

So, perhaps the deck should look something like this:

[deck]
[creatures]
4 Graveyard Marshal
4 Midnight Reaper
4 Ravenous Chupacabra
4 Josu Vess, Lich Knight
4 Doom Whisperer
[/creatures]
[spells]
4 Cast Down
2 Price of Fame
4 Eldest Reborn
4 Karn, Scion of Urza
1 Vraska’s Contempt
[/spells]
[lands]
3 Cabal Stronghold
2 Field of Ruin
20 Swamp
[/lands]
[/deck]

I know we can’t really use the mana as much as I would like. [card]Torment of Hailfire[/card] is on it’s way out and [card]Dread Shade[/card] just doesn’t feel right to me, as it often doesn’t do anything. A couple of them might very well be a good addition to the deck anyhow.

Lifegain would be nice as well. Maybe if there was some, we could play [card]Blood Operative[/card] as well.
