Loeffner on Need help on choosing a ...

2 days ago


I need help for choosing a new Deck. I know it might not be so interesting for some of you since I only play casual, but I hope some of you come up with cool suggestions.

I mostly play against two other Players. Either it's all vs. all, or attack your left.

In the last few weeks they started to rapidly improve their Decks (their playstyle improved as well) and I am having really a hard time to win.

I want to get some new cards or an entirely new Deck. I hope some of you can help me choose and have some cool ideas. I would really like to get a control Deck that will help me win (most of the time). Now of course this is a casual playgroup so I do not want an unbeatable Deck or some broken infinite combos (not much fun for me and my opponents).

In the following I will give a short overview on the Decks I will be facing most of the time.

Opponent 1, Deck 1:

A red & blue aggro/control. His win condition is usually Nivix Cyclops + Teleportal and a lot of other spells like for example Cyclonic Rift. This way he can keep the board clean and do lots of damage very fast.

Opponent 1, Deck 2:

A mono white Soldier Deck. I haven't played against this Deck very often but it relies strongly on Synergies with +1/+1 Counters. Also one or two strong Angel finishers.

Opponent 2, Deck 1:A

A mono green Elven Token Deck. This Deck creates lots of tokens, buffs them with Lords and +1/+1 Counters, and attacks with all of them.

Opponent 2, Deck 2:

A red & black Wither Deck. This Deck - of course - relies on -1/-1 Counters. These are very effective against my weak creatures. Cards he runs are for example: Kulrath Knight, Blowfly Infestation.

My Main Deck: Casually Merrowing

I know most Merrow Decks are Aggro, but I don't really want to spend a lot of money just on Lords. Also a new Deck would be nice.

My Budget: Below 30 Euro. Go Wild!

TL:DR: I need new casual Deck below 30 Euro Ideally Control, Which will win me most games without having boring endless combos or something.

I would suggest these revisions to the mainboard: +4 Phyrexian Crusader -4 Scar

-2 Swamp +2 Memorial to Folly

-4 Swamp +4 Inkmoth Nexus (I know this is a budget deck, but I believe this will receive a reprint soon, and while 1-2 copies is expensive, it won't break the wallet)

-2 Septic Rats +2 Ichorclaw Myr

-2 Blowfly Infestation +2 Nest of Scarabs

+1 Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon -1 Virulent Wound

Flooremoji... I like Crumbling Ashes but in some cases it could hurt this build... for example if I have it in play I'm going to think twice before dropping Ammit Eternal or Channeler Initiate. Ashes is a great card but I'd rather have the choice to destroy target permanent, and Ashes doesn't give that choice. Blowfly Infestation is another mandatory effect that could potentially hurt the build... but it's manageable.

pasta sauce and pasta, my favorite combo... That and Blowfly Infestation plus Crumbling Ashes.

I disagree entirely about Midnight Banshee. Killing all of your own green tokens is a Benefit, not a hindrance. Sure almost all of your tokens get replaced with new tokens that have Summoning Sickness (assuming you don't have Eldrazi Monument, Beastmaster Ascension, or Oran Reef online) but your cards like Blowfly Infestation and Blood Artist just go nuts.

Hex Parasite is an amazing toolbox. Not only does it save your own guys from negatives, but it wipes out Smokestack, Tangle Wire, and Planeswalkers.

I also like Dictate of Erebos, but its better if you have a sac outlet.

If you'd like to take a look and compare mine is An Entirely Harmless Box of Fish (EDH Edition) but keep in mine that deck is held back by only being 40% EDH Deck and 60% Brawl Deck.

really cool deck! have you considered Nest of Scarabs instead of Blowfly Infestation? Less risk of losing creatures and you're always getting more bodies. Also I think Phyrexian Arena would give you a better card draw than Spiteful Visions. If you dont mind both players drawing, you're better off using Howling Mine imo. Please check out my -1/-1 counter deck Army of Ash

CommanderAdventures: another perk from using the Cauldron is that you can cause nontoken weenies controlled by opponents to die again for the purpose of Blowfly Infestation

If you haven't already, look at for lots of good cards. Harbinger of Night is very good for tokens. Same for Necroskitter and Blowfly Infestation
