Necropotence deck was a Type 2 deck popular in 1996. [1] [2] [3] With a Dark Ritual, a first turn Necropotence was possible and the Necro's card advantage won games. It began what was known as the "Black Summer". Ultimately Necro was banned a few years later.

This is the sample deck list of the classic, mono black Necropotence deck. This deck combined the power of Necropotence with disruption and efficient creatures.
