    So...will 5 color black be viable in type-ii after Torment's release?

    I can see cards like...

    Spectral Lynx
    Spirit Monger
    Urza's Rage
    Firebolt
    Syncopate
    Divert
    Call of the Herd
    Pernicious Deed
    Flametounge Kavu

    ...making up the splash colors, and the nifty new Black cards from Torment making up the back bone. And let us not forget the new "control a swamp" duel lands also in Torment.

    So...any ideas or sugestions for such a deck?

    I don't see a 5 color black making a stand. I do see 2 and 3 color black decks getting stronger. You really need to have 8 or 9 swamps to take advantage of the new lands.

    I can see 5 color green with smaller b;ack support cards like Chainer's Edict and stuff, but the new lands just bite, give me a pain any day. 5 color black is a bad idea.

    T.J.:p

    I think the main point of torment was to bring back mono-black (Or Black with small splashes). Most of the black cards in torm support the Swamp # ability, and its hard to take advantage of that with more than 1 color.
