hnki on Upgraded Obby (Duel Deck)

About Black's creature base:

The weakest creature in the deck by far currently is 2x Blistergrub, a holdover card that came with this crappy precon. This creature's only value is to hopefully beat down against a board that consists of weak dorks that can't block it efficiently, like Llanowar Elves and Elfhame Druid. It quickly loses value as green can easily put out its 5-drops as early as turn three, blow it out with a Wall of Roots, and make it worthless in general. It's quite likely that these will be cut in the future to make room for 4x Deathbloom Thallid, a creature with much better aggressive stats and much better value, or even better, a hypothetical 3-drop monoblack flyer that synergizes with sacrifice effects or graveyard recursion. I would enjoy such a card in this deck if I knew of its existence, so I will keep searching.

Blistergrub maybe?

I would add 4x Contaminated Ground. With modern having such a complex manabase (most sporting 3 colors), transforming their lands is as effective as destroying them. Plus, it costs half of your destruction spells, aids your swampwalk and pings the enemy for 2.

You are also playing black, so you should add some creature removal Doom Blade or Victim of Night.

Finally, Blistergrub is a decent swampwalk creature.

Bif_Slagthor on B/W Ayli commander, suggestions welcome

Well, to start you have no lands. Lands are kinda important, as they let you, you know cast spells? :) Anyways, you are very, very creature heavy, and many of these creatures do not inherently help "Ayli" plan, or are "filler" creatures, that don't do much of anything. You have very little card draw, like none at all, so add thing like, Mind's Eye, or my favorite, Read the Bones, so you don't end up top-decking. Alright, so, now I'll give a list of creatures I think you should cut; Blind Hunter, Butcher Ghoul, Blistergrub, Carrier Thrall, Doomed Traveler, Dross Harvester, Exhumer Thrull, Gavony Unhallowed, Lingering Tormentor, Mausoleum Guard, Mistmoon Griffin, Necroskitter, Restless Apparition, Shambling Goblin, Soulcatcher, Summoner's Egg, Swarm of Bloodflies, Twilight Shepherd, Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, Screams from Within, Seize the Soul, Benediction of Moons, and Cry of Contrition. Oh, and I want to reccommend EDHREC.com to help get the creativity flowing too. Hope this helps, and tag me or message me if you want more advice.

Athraithe on Golgari Death Party! Sacrifices must be made!

Too many creatures to sac TO, not enough sacable creatures. your ratio is 12 sacable and 12 to sac with, with 4 being benefited from death without the sacable part. You should drop the amount of creatures to sac to, probably to around 8-10, 10 is pushing it hard though. actually, probably 8. Add in 4 more creatures that benefit from themselves dying. Even though its a bit high costing, i suggest Blind Hunter. Black Cat can be good for getting rid of their hand, and Blistergrub is just funny. Driver of the Dead is a little high costing too, but it replaces a creature onto the field such as your blisterpod or doomed traveler for more flying spirits. Since the rules of pauper are that the card must have been printed as common at some point, ive used Brindle Shoat, its great. Tukatongue Thallid might help cuz again, replaces itself in death. Hope i helped!

Grimmalt on Fling that thing!

you can remove some of your gates and replace Fling with Rite of Consumption even though its sorc speed vs instant, and Blistergrub could be swapped out for Perilous Myr its 1 less and can target creatures. If you are trying to stick to black devo then use Undying Evil on grey merchant for combos.
