Take advantage NOW! bEFORE Scars rotates!

4x Gravecrawler
4x Geralf's Messenger
4x Phyrexian Obliterator (!)
3x Griselbrand
1x Grave Titan

4x Black Sun's Zenith
2x Mutilate
4x Despise
2x Duress
2x Unburial Rites
2x Liliana of the Dark Realms
2x Liliana of the Veil

Play ALL of the different Black Cards you've been talking about for the last couple years- yeah it's more 'aggro' than 'control' at this point- turns out being able to play 6 or more Black Sun's Zenith next to 8 things-that-don't-really-die is actually amazing.
Being able to either Reanimate OR Dark Realms-cheat Griselbrand out is not too shabby either.

I'm positive those 3 spikey creatures are what will make the deck possible, so it can only be so much control. Everything I list after Obliterator I make no claim to be an expert about- but this seems like a fine start for anyone interested!

I like the original "kill all Rosie O'Donnells" Torment art version

Incredibly powerful card. It also works better in multi-colored decks than you might think.

if this kills a creature wit undying does it still suffer the effects when it comes back?

Great reprint. I hope Wizards tries to make Black's removal more -x/-x oriented to differentiate it more from White's. I always liked Mutilate, and continue to be surprised when mono-Black decks don't run it. Often times this is better than Damnation, not to mention always cheaper on the bank.

I for one welcome our new Mono-black overlords!!! Probably the best card in this set that enables it (sorry Lili)

In a mono-black deck, Mutilate can kill pretty much anything you want to kill with Damnation, and many other things Damnation cannot kill (like indestructible creatures).
