SUPER SWEEEEEEEET DECK! Consider Tattered Mummy, Sultai Emissary,Black Cat,Disturbing Plot,Cemetery Recruitment to smoothen out curve.

Thank you for your comment Hyperalgialysis.

  • I could definetely try 1 or 2 Black Cats. There are better hand disruption option for sure, but this is not a competitive deck and most importantly I'm a cat person, so I can try it :P
  • Altar's Reap and Merciless Resolve are really good options and I was already thinking to replace 1 or 2 Viscera Seer with one of these. Btw I'm rarely in mana flood, so i like Altar's Reap, but I have yet to try it against more controllish decks
  • I already thought about Bone Splinters but Terminate, Act of Treason and direct damage from all the creatures already do the job really well. It could be a good side option against decks with many removals, but I think I would prefer going with 4x terminate in that case.
  • Tattered Mummy is good for this deck, but I see it as a worse Perilous Myr. It could maybe replace some Mudbutton Torchrunner to make the deck faster

Black Cat is really good value for what it does, especially in your deck. I like Altar's Reap in a deck like this but Merciless Resolve is a little more playable since it lets you sac an extra land if you have no creatures. I also think an under rated card is Bone Splinters since you can trade a weenie for something big. The only other thing I can think of that may be worth tossing in would be Tattered Mummy. I am not suggesting any of these cards are better than your current build but they may be worth testing

I'm also brewing a "budget" 8Rack deck and I dig your take on it +1 from me... Maybe Black Cat would fit in here over some of the non creature spells... I have found that without Ensnaring Bridge holding off aggro is nearly impossible without 4x Languish AND or Mutilate/Damnation.... Does the spot removal work for you?

Also Also, while it's strategically useful, you could also remove a bunch of the cards that do discard effects, like Black Cat, Thoughtpicker Witch, and Mesmeric Fiend. While this doesn't speed up the deck, it removes some of the biggest hate-generators. People can get mad at you for screwing them over, but can they really get made at you for not dying?

If you're worried about not having a low enough mana curve, I found the following zombies: Festering Mummy, Black Cat, Blood Scrivener, Boneknitter, Null Champion, Plaguebearer

You're right, I definitely do not know much about 8-rack. I still don't understand the point of 24 lands, yeah you can use them as discard fodder, but you could also just add in more spells and do the same with any of those you want. I understand the Raven's Crime combo, and why Grafdigger isn't great, I didn't realize that before. Black Cat, Liliana, Heretical Healer and any spell that forces you to also sac a creature might work, but I think you're right. I'm interested in building and playing my own 8-rack now to test possibilities.

Honestly, that kind of strategy is pretty tame in our play group. In that scenario, a discard strategy puts a huge target on my back, so I have to win quickly or I'll die.

Don't get me wrong, I love Mind Twist and Attrition, but they don't offer much synergy in a creature recursion deck, which is partly the problem.

Now if I could cheat cards like Myojin of Night's Reach into play consistently, I wouldn't have to worry about casting costs, but I don't know many cards that do that, other than Quicksilver Amulet.

Thank you for the suggestions! I agree that one-offs like Black Cat just don't do enough, unless I could clone/recur it a thousand times. I don't know if it's possible to clone something in B/R, but now you've got me thinking about it. Blade of Selves perhaps? I'm not sure what else off the top of my head.'
