Dread Presence is going to lurk in Standard for quite a while, waiting for a critical mass of mono-black spells to launch it greatness. Besides serving as a finisher in grindy matchups, Dread Presence gives Mono-Black repeatable card advantage as a reward for making it to the mid-game on the back of one-for-one removal, like Disfigure, Duress and Plaguecrafter.

With plenty of power and the inevitability of Dread Presence, Mono-Black may have what it takes to compete in post-rotation Standard. Keep this list in mind as you look at spoilers for Throne of Eldraine.
