EDH Help: Essential Black Cards

Here are some black cards to really consider for your EDH:


Keeping your hand full in EDH is always advantageous, and being able to funnel your life into cards is amazing (it's the reason Yawgmoth's Bargain is banned).

Vampiric Tutor

This goes for any type of mono-black tutor (Imperial Seal, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor...). Vampiric Tutor is probably the best since it's instant-speed and really cheap.

Grave Pact

This card makes your opponents really reconsider killing your creatures since they'll be losing one too. It also makes any sacrifice combo you have extra-effective.


BOOM! That is all.

Phyrexian Arena

See the remarks I made for Necropotence as they apply here.

Animate Dead

Stealing for anyone's graveyard makes this card really versatile since there may be a point where you don't have anything nice in your own yard but someone else does.

Guardian Beast
Finally, a card no one remembers. Here's the oracle text:
"As long as Guardian Beast is untapped, noncreature artifacts you control can't be enchanted, they're indestructible, and other players can't gain control of them. This effect doesn't remove Auras already attached to those artifacts."
In short, it's mono-black artifact protection, and given how many artifacts are run in EDH, it's pretty great!
