Bone Splinters Discussion

Don't know much about artifact sac outlets but as far as creature sac outlets go there's Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Blood Bairn, Nantuko Husk, Spawning Pit, Bloodthrone Vampire, Vampiric Rites, Disciple of Griselbrand, Altar's Reap, and Bone Splinters, Hell's Caretaker, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Phyrexian Plaguelord, and Whisper, Blood Liturgist off the top of my head. There's also Phyrexian Altar but it's not cheap. You can probably find more of these effects as well as artifact sac effects on gatherer.

Thanks for your suggestions!

I actively avoided adding Meren of Clan Nel Toth as everyone in my playgroup that has a deck of golgari colours runs her.

I missed Primal Growth somehow so I'll maybe add her! I'm not a fan of Bone Splinters due to sorcery speed; and Diabolic Intent is too pricey for me unfortunately.

Out of the second list you suggested I have variations of cards that do the same thing; which is also true for your fourth list of suggestions.

In my first iteration of the deck I had Corpsejack Menace etc but I've found that I didn't need them for +1/+1 counters to get out of hand.

Golgari? Sacrifice Themed?

Oh, come on now, Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a must have!

There are some crads, which have "Sacrifice a creature" as an additional cost, which could be beneficial to you:

These cards are useful tools as well:

You are kind of not using the +1/+1 counter ability of your commander enough, if you ask me. These cards enhance the ability of your commander:

These cards make your opponents sacrifice stuff, whenever you lose your own stuff, which means, they practically get hit twice as much:

Also nice buffs alongside:

I second all Pat's comments except I really do like Rend Flesh. I like it better than Bone Splinters. You have a lot of sac outlets and the sorcery speed is a real drawback.

Have you considered Trading Post, Geralf's Messenger, Puppeteer Clique, Cauldron of Souls? I really like undying/persist in this deck. There is also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, but price is a factor with him.

A couple things I don't like: Pitiless Plunderer, Cryptbreaker

I definitely cut:

Tenacious Dead (unless there's a combo I'm missing) Diregraf Colossus (I don't think there are enough zombies here) Captivating Crew (I tried this in a couple sac decks, but the 4 was just way too much.) Desecrated Tomb (bats seem low impact) Bone Splinters Murder Rend Flesh (You have a lot more single target removal spells than I generally like to run, though that's partially personal preference) Warstorm Surge/Impact Tremors (I might be missing a combo with these, though)

I'd probably cut:

Both Squees. I think they're too slow. Harvester of Souls Nim Deathmantle (unless you want to combo off) Aftershock

I'd suggest: Greater Gargadon Talisman of Indulgence (way better than the diamonds) Goblin Bombardment Yahenni, Undying Partisan Dark Prophecy

Thanks for the feedback Jerkoid. I've tried to avoid having my board totally oppress the rest of the players at the table, but you are correct Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner are both all stars in the sac a creature role. I really like the Bone Splinters recommendation. Thematically I am staying away from thopters and servos, as I wanted this to stay creepy with zombies, harpies and stuff like that, so Hangerback is probably out, but yes would be awesome!

Thanks again, ~BoS

I've always liked Bone Splinters. Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner look underwhelming but can do great work in a 4-player game.

In general, I think you have too few creatures which benefit from dying. Getting a good balance between sacrifice targets and sacrifice enablers helps a lot. Try something like Hangarback Walker.

when Butcher Ghoul is a 1/1, it will fail to kill a 0/2. Gravecrawler cannot block. If Festering Mummy does not die to Costly Plunder or Bone Splinters, then it cannot kill a 0/2. in any other case, the zombies will kill attacking creatures, or any assigned blockers. it counters Overwhelming Stampede type moves. it gives confidence and options when attacking. I think it has inherent synergy. zombies are total shit without great cards like Smallpox and Duress to back them up.
