Why the hell would you make a M10-only deck? That won't be relevant for any format... New t2 will be Alara block, M10, Zendikar block and M10 is obv not played as block-constructed...

Mostly because my friends and I have a shitton of M10 and want to mess around.

I was hoping for something constructive, but I guess that's too much to hope for.

Vampire Aristocrat seems missplaced; what do you want to sac to it? If you want a vampire for the nocturnus I think Child of Night is better, and enough. Go for some other good black creature; Howling Banshee is great.

Also, play 4 Consume Spirit. Great reach and can keep you in the game.

(Of course I too think M10-constructed is a dumb format. Still very cozy though ^^)

4x gargoyle castle !!!!!!!
ya seriously- best card in the deck.

a way to address this wouldn't be to build a M10 deck... for that just play sealed lol.
you Do however want to identify which cards are key to the archetype. while nocturnus is powerful, it's not central to mono-black control strategies. sign in blood, tendrils of corruption are. black knight is key. sanguine bond is a card you can build around.

the thing with M10-only is that it's too restrictive... the deck essentially builds itself, IMO.

Land (24):
20 Swamp
4 Gargoyle Castle

Creatures (12):
4 Black Knight
4 Hypnotic Specter
4 Vampire Nocturnus

Spells (24):
2 Diabolic Tutor
4 Duress
1 Mind Shatter
4 Doom Blade
4 Tendrils of Corruption
1 Liliana Vess
3 Rise from the Grave
4 Sign in Blood
1 Consume Spirit

Sideboard (15):
4 Deathmark
2 Nightmare
2 Pithing Needle
1 Liliana Vess
3 Consume Spirit
1 Mind Shatter
2 Assassinate

What about playing something like that list (whipped it up pretty quickly, so it may not add up to 60, but I think it does)?

Your early game is just basically knocking out cards with Duress and hoping to stick a Black Knight or Hypnotic Specter. Vampire Nocturnus is there for additional aggro support.

Your late game is great as you have Gargoyle Castle to activate, along with Rise From the Grave to pull out a bomb from your opponent's graveyard that you may have Doom Bladed previously. Sideboard gives you even more reach if you need it in the form of Nightmare and Consume Spirit. Obligatory soldier sideboard is there with 4 Deathmarks and Needle for their Ajani, along with Assassinate if you need it, although now that I think about it, it may be too slow to use at all.

Also, I'm not sure on the correct number of tutors for this deck. Two seemed good to me, but you may want to increase it.

But yes, most of this deck does build itself as another poster said. Razz

4x gargoyle castle seems bad; you'll get color screwed too often.
