MTG – Standard Deck (Post Rotation) – Mono Black Control (+Vampires!)

Hello Nurglings!

So this is my third list for today with mono colored MTG decks. This will most probably be the last one, and in all honesty, the one that I want to play the most. I just love Mono Black Control! It’s so fun to kill off your opponents things and attack them with things and kill of his things… and so on.

This deck actually started out as a Black Vampire Control Deck. Focusing on having vampires as the main creature type, with nocturnes coming back, it felt like a good place to be in. But the more I think about it, the more I feel that I should be working harder on just using what’s good for a Mono Black (duuuuuh?). So cards like Geralf’s Messenger and such actually feels pretty viable in that type of deck. Not sure if that plan will be better than the vampire one, but because of that I will be posting two lists. One with Vampires as a focus, and one as a general good black deck (or what I think is good. 🙂 )

Creatures: 20
4x Duty-Bound Dead
4x Highborn Ghoul
4x Knight of Infamy
4x Vampire Nighthawk
4x Geralf’s Messenger

Spells: 12
4x Duress
4x Tragic Slip
3x Sign In Blood
1x Mutilate

Planeswalkers: 4
2x Liliana of the Veil
2x Liliana of the Dark Realms

Land: 24
20x Swamps
4x Cathedral of War

Oh and if you for some reason haven’t seen these black cards:

And here you go with the Vampire list…

Creatures: 20
4x Blood Artist
4x Vampire Interloper
4x Vampire Nighthawk
4x Bloodline Keeper
4x Vampire Nocturnus

Spells: 12
4x Duress
4x Sign In blood
4x Tragic Slip

Planeswalkers: 4
4x Liliana of the Dark Realms

Lands: 24
24x Swamps

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

  1. Love the vampire deck, probly gonna build it as is with minor adjustments; ill let you know what i end up with. Why not do 2 Liliana of the Dark Realms, and 2 Liliana of the Veil.????

    • The Liliana may change in the future, but right now i use Liliana of the Dark Realms as an agressive drop, pumping a creature for damage or even a Nighthawk to gain plenty of life. But will try a few different set ups. 🙂
