My Monoph0nik 0nyx Deck (mono black control)
In this article I will explain the strategy behind my very odd but calculated mono deck. It is much like a dance and you are the lead. The name of the game is card draw and never letting them build a combo or get a good play off. It is effective 90% of the time but you may have difficulty versus Mill decks, white life gain, and ember cleave red mono. However, victory is not impossible, you just need a good understanding of the plays they will attempt and dance accordingly. I have 2 other variations of this deck I have made, an Ugin version (Ugin is so cheap though) and a slightly more aggro version that tends to fail quick if they take your strategy apart. Once you fully understand this version however you can get up to about an 80%-win rate all the way into diamond and beyond. A video will be posted demonstrating the strong grasp of control you will accomplish and how best to attack and recover from damage. If you decide you want to try it out, I am posting the import codes below and do not worry about blowing lots of wildcards. There are tons of jank within.
