Today we are spicing up mono black by building around the new adventure creature Gumdrop Poisonerimage. Using cards like Okiba Reckoner Raid // Nezumi Road Captainimage, Life of Toshiro Umezawa // Memory of Toshiroimage, Phyrexian Fleshgorgerimage, and Sheoldred, the Apocalypseimage we can passively gain life to enable Gumdrop Poisonerimage's ETB trigger, hopefully turning it into a better Ravenous Chupacabraimage where it removes a creature when it enters. Now since we will be gaining more life than we know what to do with we can spend it on cards like Phyrexian Arenaimage, Evolved Sleeperimage, Sorin the Mirthlessimage, and Tenacious Underdogimage's blitz cost to draw more cards.
