This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series The Other 99

Posted by ‘KARSTON’ aka ‘TOPANDGO’

Hey everybody and thanks for watching another episode of The Other 99.  Today we tackle some mono-black goodness in the form of a Seizan, Perverter of Truth deck.  Now most mono-black decks that I have seen and played against have been pretty boring, featuring some variation of an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers ramp plan into a massive “X mana” spell, such as Exsanguinate.

This deck actually does run all three of the aforementioned cards, bu this deck’s strategy is completely different.  This deck plays with an archetype that I think may be a little bit underestimated in Commander: Pressure.  Ever have games that just seem to drag on forever, or have playgroups filled with control decks that stall the game?  Well pressure decks exist to speed up games by putting every player at the table on a clock that they either have to outrace or lose.  Sometimes this means that the pilot of the pressure deck ends up losing to his own clock, but the deck is usually built to try to bolster the its defenses against itself.

I personally think that this archetype deserves a little bit more love.  I personally have built a Zo-Zu, the Punisher pressure deck that I feel is a ton of fun to play.  Have you built a pressure deck of your own?
