What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

Revamped Mono Black Control, now for multiplayer!

The basic strategy is to control your opponent's hand and board using Sinkhole Buy, Duress Buy, Hymn to Tourach Buy and other cards. There are a couple of "combos" here that help you win:
1. Necropotence Buy and Ivory Tower Buy allow me to draw cards and gain life as well. It helps keep my life total on the up and up.
2. Contamination Buy and Phyrexian Processor Buy allow for a nice little lock for anyone not playing black. The Processor makes small critters for me to sac every upkeep (so don't tell me I need more creatures). It also combines well with the Ivory Tower Buy to give me a huge game winner.

Dark Confidant Buy acts like a Necropotence Buy and digs my combos out faster.

Cards I Need
2 Dark Confidant Buy
4 Sinkhole Buy
