Bubbling Muck Discussion

Give this episode of EDHRECast a listen. It's all about 75% decks with a focus on the creator of the site's Xantcha deck.

As for specifics for your deck, the first card I would include Koskun Falls . It's the only Ghostly Prison effect in black, and it will help you defend. Well, there's also No Mercy , so give that a whirl, as well.

Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are interesting tech. I've never seen those cards before! If your goal is just to make Xantcha unblockable, though, Cover of Darkness is much cheaper (gotta love old cards that effect other people's creatures!), and I doubt you'll get much blowback from other Minions on the table.

With the whole, "everybody, attack!" plan, I like Fumiko the Lowblood in this deck. Same for Angel's Trumpet , which is basically a more efficient Charging Cinderhorn.

I also see a Nekusar, the Mindrazer kind of thing going on. You'll probably want some wheels to supplement that strategy. A few good budget ones are Khorvath's Fury , Incendiary Command , and Reforge the Soul .

As for cuts, Cabal Stronghold is pretty iffy in a deck running 11 Basic Swamps. Temple of the False God is awful. You're effectively running 35 lands, because Temple is a free 4-mana rock, not a land. I honestly despise this card. Run Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , or Hedron Archive , instead, and add in a couple more lands. I would put in some budget fixing lands, such as Rakdos Carnarium and Tainted Peak . I don't like Bubbling Muck much. You're not running that many swamps, so something like Mana Geyser would be much more effective if you need big mana. I'm also not really sure what Harmless Offering is doing in this deck.

Those are just my initial impressions. I'd also check out the Xantcha page at EDHREC to see how others are building. You can click the budget tab in the top right to help stay under $150! Good luck!

Thank you! I did look at your deck. very nice! and I did notice some of your mana doublers. Bubbling Muck would work in a pinch.

The most brutal way to build a Markov deck is to abuse his Eminence ability by playing as many low-cmc Vampires as possible. If you couple that with mana rocks and some Ramp you can drop a handful of 1cmc Vampires each turn and get free triggers for even more Vampires from Markov! This will also allow you to cut your lands down to around 30.

Here are some low-cmc Vampires to consider:

Ramp:

Mana Rocks:

You can also try throwing in these HUGE buff effects for your Vampires:

Hey, looks good, nice Coffers :) Consider reducing the avg. CMC? It's currently 4.2 that's very high without having much early game ramp.

cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rescue from the Underworld
  • Wretched Confluence
  • Beacon of Unrest
  • Diabolic Tutor
  • In Garruk's Wake
  • Oblivion Strike
  • Rise of the Dark Realms
  • Twilight's Call

  • Tetzimoc, Primal Death
  • Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
  • Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis
  • Ihsan's Shade

You should check out the new just released Masters set, Ultimate Masters. The set has a lot of great reprinted black cards for Commander.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey hkhssweiss, much thanks for the input! :)

I totally forgot that Vona's Hunger existed! :)) I'll have to watch how quickly I can get to 10 permanents.

I think I can try running Dismember; the -5/-5 is significant, compared to Sickening Shoal which might end up becoming a pitched Last Gasp most of the time. That one mana to pay can be a steep cost on when the game is down to the wire, but it lets me hit Atraxa, Edgar, and the like.

As for Extraplanar Lens, I'm actually going back and forth with it and Crypt Ghast, hence I haven't unsleeved my Snow-Covered Swamp.

Extraplanar Lens gets me two-for-oned in my meta, even when I use it as a Bubbling Muck. I also have trouble making the most out of it because I run a lot of nonbasic lands. Crypt Ghast dies to the Pox effects and other removal spells but it gives me Extort and at least I don't lose a land when they respond to it. I used to run Nirkana Revenant too, along with Caged Sun but it was too high on the curve, so they got cut out.

I do want to run Contamination so that I have 2 functional copies of Infernal Darkness, but I don't have the creature support for it.

Sadistic Sacrament was once part of the deck, but I ended up being able to regularly pay for the Kicker cost, which made me rather unpopular. I switched to Praetor's Grasp and added multicolor mana rocks so it can also act as an "off-color" tutor. However, I do still bring it out when I'm playing in a cutthroat environment.

Hey welcome to T/O!

For most Geth deck, they focus a lot on mana acceleration to be able to abuse his ability. Some cards that might be helpful to you can be:

Nirkana Revenant, Extraplanar Lens, Bubbling Muck, Cabal Ritual, Gauntlet of Power, Cabal Coffers, Cabal Stronghold, Jet Medallion

Also I would recommend adding in some more interaction/draw spells like:

Dismember, Vendetta, Sudden Spoiling, Slaughter Pact, Vona's Hunger, Mindblade Render, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood

Hope that helps!

You can check out my mono-black deck as well to gain some insight!
