Bloodspore Thrinax

Creature — Lizard

Devour 1 (As this enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This creature enters the battlefield with that many +1/+1 counters on it.)

Each other creature you control enters the battlefield with an additional X +1/+1 counters on it, where X is the number of +1/+1 counters on Bloodspore Thrinax.

Bloodspore Thrinax Discussion

JuQ on Kumena

Illusionist's Bracers would go nicely with Kumena and several of your creatures.

Forgotten Ancient, Path of Discovery, Master Biomancer or Bloodspore Thrinax easy +1/+1 counters on your guys.

I don't know if there's a way to fit her in your deck, but Fathom Mage gives me always amazing results.

I have to say that you are missing some of the best cards for what you want, if you to abuse tokens and +1/+1 counters green white would work a lot better because you have access to cheep token and counter fuel. If you are set in making this deck with that commander then I would say Bloodspore Thrinax can be a good counter builder, if your creatures were the same type then I would have a lot more to offer you.

Deck looks great, Im building my own Mazirek deck now. Take a look at Corpsejack Menace, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and my personal favorite Bloodspore Thrinax.Combined with Mycoloth which i see you have, these guys get a lot done. Throw in a Pathbreaker Ibex to finish 'em off.

Okay I have made somw changes to the deck. It produces even mpre counters now with tighter synwrgy between cards. I still lack Kalonian hydra (and actually have doubling season and aura shards as proxies since they more than double the pricw of the deck) but added several of the suggestions above. Tendershoot Dryad Bloodspore Thrinax and Champion of Lambholt make a ton of counters and give unbockable.

Bloodspore Thrinax is a good option. It does essentially the same job as Corpsejack Menace and enables a new infinite win: You can, with Earthcraft, remove the +1/+1 counters from the tokens generated to make infinite tapped tokens with Ghave + Thrinax + Earthcraft. Rather than infinite +1/+1 counters, you can turn it into a straight up win vs multiple opponents.

I like Thrinax more than Enduring Scalelord, though something like Realm Seekers could be swapped out for Thrinax instead.

Some relatively cheap stuff I would recommend would be Burgeoning and some mana rocks like Golgari Signet, Orzhov Signet or Selesnya Signet to speed things up a little.

As for creatures, I think Bloodspore Thrinax, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Forgotten Ancient and Mycoloth could all be absolute powerhouses in your deck.

Happy gaming!

Great deck so far!

I do have a couple suggestions; firstly, Mazirek's focus is on creatures, so making as many of your abilities attached to creatures will benefit you more.


Card Draw

As of the moment, Deathreap Ritual, Vampiric Rites, and Altar's Reap are your only sources of card draw.

Try and shift the focus towards creatures with Enter the Battlefield can-trips or triggered abilities that will synergize better with your playstyle;

While Tutors aren't required, in EDH/Commander they can help you set up your combos quicker. Again, trying to maintain the creature-based synergy, you could use Sidisi, Undead Vizier (Exploiting itself, so you can recur it from the graveyard), or Razaketh, the Foulblooded; who speaks for himself.

Some don't have to be overly impressive either, with both Burnished Hart and Sakura-Tribe Elder.

A good deck should always focus on being prepared for anything; removing creatures is strong, but without being able to remove non-creatures, the deck will encounter barriers (and potentially lose the game).

While staying true to our creature-based abilities, try out:


You are already running Fleshbag Marauder, but you should include its brother Merciless Executioner (quite literally the same card).

  • With all the Sacrifice triggers you have in the deck, it would really be a shame not to see Savra, Queen of the Golgari being used to her full potential.

  • You already have similar effects in the deck, but Hardened Scales should be an auto-include.

  • With your focus on wide-spread +1/+1 counters, Rishkar, Peema Renegade would be a solid boost to your mana source.

  • Bloodspore Thrinax would prove to be an effective way to introduce large creatures (especially tokens) to the battlefield.

  • For some solid graveyard recursion, try out Phyrexian Reclamation.

While not thematically pleasing (I almost regret recommending this...), Animation Module would be a great way for you to keep tempo in late game.

Strict Replacements

  • Swap out Bone Splinters for Shriekmaw; for mana more, you can Evoke the Shriekmaw and have it do the exact same effect. This enables you to have built in control over the ability. Additionally, you can recur the Shriekmaw easier than you can the Bone Splinters.

  • Drop Disentomb and replace it with Victimize; Victimize is a POWERHOUSE, you Sacrifice one creature to get TWO from the graveyard to the BATTLEFIELD. The value is obvious in a deck where you are sacrificing to gain benefits.

  • Profane Memento is an alright card, but keeping the creature theme, try Deathgreeter instead.

  • Reduce your land base, 40 land is going to drown you late game, perhaps instead try and include some acceleration such as Golgari Signet or Commander's Sphere.
