Butcher of Malakir Discussion
6 days ago
Warrior Creatures to Consider:
Devoted Crop-Mate like a weird Alesha
Hidden Dragonslayer decent removal
Ironclad Slayer if you are playing a lot of equipments
Malakir Cullblade gets bigger
Champion of the Flame if you go super heavy on the equipment
Garna, the Bloodflame save the creatures from a boardwipe? Not sure how it will do in action
Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs pillowfort and some bodies
Taurean Mauler -technically a warrior
Burnished Hart ramp and can be brought back by Alesha
Gisela, Blade of Goldnight -got reprinted in Master 25 so its cheaper and will get reprinted again in Commander anthology II but that one will be foil so not sure if that will affect price
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser goad is amazing and his second ability is nice if you have mana to spend
Equipment to Consider:
Sunforger one of the best equipments in these colors, fetch your removal
Kusari-Gama mini boardwipe if they block
Artifacts to Consider:
- Gilded Lotus just got reprinted so its cheaper now
- Fellwar Stone our play group usually has your colors
- Oketra's Monument cast a warrior, get a warrior
- Throne of the God-Pharaoh
- Mardu Ascendancy
- Dictate of the Twin Gods you have both gods in deck, so why not?
- Berserkers' Onslaught
- Gift of Immortality
- Behind the Scenes since some of your creatures have low-ish power, although might such with all the anthem effects you have
- Pain Magnification just a fun card
- Kindred Boon
- Chandra's Ignition -really great boardwipe for this deck, if zurgo has lifelink you will get that life and also anything that dies will give him counters. You could have zurgo, cast this, and then more than likely one shot a player
- Read the Bones
- Open the Armory
- Disrupt Decorum tapped out won't link this for some reason
Instants: (sticking with four or less Cmc for sunforger shenanigans)
- Rogue's Passage
- Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion
- Unclaimed Territory
- Path of Ancestry kinda pricey now tho
Mardu is great for control, so its best to have plenty of removal spells. I would not have Spinerock Knoll since it might be too slow. Windbrisk Heights might be better than Spinerock tho. Like what if you need to play that spell but can't get 7 damage off. Also, Graveblade Marauder seems too situational to leave an impact. When you start adding/removal stuff to the deck, make sure to keep it low cmc as you can since you don't have much in terms of ramp in these colors; be sure to keep as mana rocks as you can for the same reason.

Hello again, got a few more suggestions for you and I think I'll be repeating the last poster a bit because he offered solid advice.
First, your draw. The one time spells like Read the Bones, Damnable Pact, and Ambitions Cost are rather lackluster and reuseable draw would go a lot further. Consider Dark Prophecy, Greed, and Necropotence.
Last is just a few suggestions for higher cmc cards to drop. Your avg cmc should be as close to 3.0 as you can get and your deck is at 3.6 right now. I know .6 doesn't sound like much but to put it in perspective, that's about 30 mana cost that needs to go. Butcher of Malakir can be replaced w/ Grave Pact. Licia, Sanguine Tribune and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter can be replaced with any lower cost creature like Dusk Legion Zealot (gotta keep the creature count at about 30). Kindred Dominance should probably be switched with Austere Command for flexibility. Oh and seriously, get Reconnaissance in here, you'll never consider dropping it.

Butcher of Malakir is a little bit too expensive to cast and easier to remove than those two enchantments.
For recursion I went for sorceries. For Strands of Night I need to sac a swamp, which I really don't want to do. I might playtest it, when I am not satisfied with those sorceries.
Sheoldred, Whispering One has no direct effect on the board, may be targeted by removal before its recursion ability is triggered. It also draws a lot of hate, as do most preators.

allways put in sheoldred
Jote on Whack-a-mole

Killing Wave can be a blowout.
I might consider removing Tyrant's Choice, unless you're ok with a card that will most often read "each opponent takes 4 damage."

Another thing I've been considering is throwing in some delirium stuff, and with the amount of deck cycling I've been eyeing up, maybe even put in some madness cards.
Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

Butcher of Malakir is always a fun one when you can get creatures back from the dead. Paired with Innocent Blood or Bone Splinters it can get real nasty for your opponent. Dark Ritual can help with casting costs and you wont have to worry about card advantage because of all the cards in your graveyard. Reassembling Skeleton isint bad either.

Those are both excellent suggestions. I have a Bloodthrone Vampire in my collection somewhere and she does get nasty next to Butcher of Malakir. I didn't know that Anowon was so affordable these days. Last I knew he was like $2.50, still not bad but under a dollar is always better. So again, thank you for bringing these to my attention.
