Carrion Feeder Discussion

BrandonMurrayBMM on Sek'Kuar Deathkeeper: The Karplusan Legend

13 hours ago

Hey there! I have no real preference, but the milling or damage is not relevant for either because it is just meant to start the loop with Protean Hulk. Therefore, I'd prefer a colorless option to a red one. I may even add bombardment anyway eventually. Yahenni, Undying Partisan is too expensive for a sacrifice outlet and cannot sacrifice himself should I need to Living Death. I'm able to recast Gravecrawler reliably. I have Carrion Feeder, Fleshbag Marauder, Phyrexian Delver, and to a lesser extent Mikaeus, the Unhallowed so 4 zombies. Mainly I use Carrion Feeder since he's so cheap and can be tutored by Imperial Recruiter. But Carrion Feeder (or any other Zombie), Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, Phyrexian Altar, and Gravecrawler allows me to make infinite 3/1s hasters.

Nahraz on Retribution (need help/optimization)

4 days ago

Hey :)

i plan to play this in SP and MP (with a group of 2-4 friends)so the idea behind the reds is:

  1. let Taurean Mauler buff itself up while the other players cast their spells to maintain a buffer for Retribution of the Ancients

  2. Flayer of the Hatebound is my biggest "Bang" > sacced via Goblin Bombardment or Carrion Feeder i can bring him back as a 5/3 (+1/+1 counter > Undying) and can damage a player or creature for 5 (when coming back from a graveyard i can deal his power as damage)... then i would take his counter away again with Retribution of the Ancients so he can trigger Undying again. :)

i added Blood Artist and Grave Pact because there is so much Sacrifice going on but have the feeling that it bloats too much and is counter productive to my original strat (keep board "dominance" via Retribution of the Ancients and deal damage with Flayer of the Hatebound e.g.)

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa

1 week ago

Ok, there are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (Cards like: Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards). The problem is, these cards hardly do anything other than putting counters on themselves. Their pretty much duds. So to make up for this, people will put in good sac outlets, (Cards like: Mind Slash, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Attrition, etc.) This type of deck gets its engine running STRICTLY from it's sac outlets, (NOT FROM ITS CREATURES) and because of this, it is a bit more reliant on its commander.

The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck is not RELYING on its sac outlets, (although it does have a few) but rather on the ETB/graveyard triggers of creatures (Cards like: Mulldrifter and Harvester of Souls). With this type of deck, you're also not fully relying on your commander. Marchesa is just a perk. If you don't have her out, you can still play your creatures and benefit from them.

Also keep in mind, that it isn't too hard getting +1/+1 counters on your creatures just using the dethrone ability itself. I find that most, if not all the time, you will NOT be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.

This is the Marchesa deck that I personally made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

Some cards that I would highly recommend putting in the deck are:
- Sneak Attack
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Demonic Tutor
- Necropotence
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Diabolic Intent
- Mind Slash
- Thalakos Deceiver
- Phyrexian Tower
- Scourge of the Throne
NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are good cards to help abuse the ETB triggers.

sillydecks on All of the creatures pop-pop-pop...

Suggestions:

It seems like Avacyn's Judgment and Abandon Reason are meant to be cast for Madness? If so, Bloodrage Brawler is awfully inconsistent here, as there's no way to be sure you'll have a hand with both Bloodrage Brawler, Avacyn's Judgment in a game, and it's even less likely you'll have the mana to cast both of them in the same turn. I'd recommend either replacing the Bloodrage Brawlers with the suggestions below, scrapping Abandon Reason, or both.

Bloodrage Brawler is an incredibly aggressive card, I'll admit. However, there are some creatures that are quite a bit more synergistic with your deck. Nantuko Husk, Carrion Feeder, and Blood Bairn help your creatures die without Distended Mindbender. Perilous Myr and Goblin Arsonist are relatives of Mudbutton Torchrunner.

It seems like Distended Mindbender and Avacyn's Judgment are your sac outlets right now. Your opponent isn't going to block your Mudbutton Torchrunners if they're going to take 3 damage for it - they're just going to let the 1 go through. So, you need ways to power them yourself. Again, Nantuko Husk, Carrion Feeder, and Blood Bairn will all do that job for you, and Artillerize and Fling are cheap, sometimes even better, substitutes or alternatives.

For a budget deck, your mana base is to be expected, but it can be better. Rakdos Guildgate is a dual land, sure, but entering the battlefield tapped without anything else means it's outclassed by others. Akoum Refuge and Bloodfell Caves are gainlands in Rakdos colors. Rakdos Carnarium is a tapland that bounces one of your own lands, which can be bad or good, but helps you stay on curve the turn after, unlike the Guildgate. Temple of Malice is a scryland, which might not be so useful, but it's still better than the Guildgate by virtue of its scry. Dragonskull Summit is probably your best bet for a dual under $5/each, though, because it's not necessarily a tapland as long as you have a Swamp or Mountain.

Soul-Scar Mage and Abandon Reason are really weird cards in this deck. You have no burn spells (which might be something to consider) if you don't hit creatures with your Torchrunner or Showstopper, so I would consider either burn spells or better combat tricks. Red has much better combat tricks than Abandon Reason, like Brute Strength, a red Giant Growth.

Sorry for the wall of text; I hope it helped.

Ditryglove on Tasipurr, The Golden Claw

1 week ago

-1 Desecration Elemental (this card is bad)

+1 Champion of Stray Souls, Carrion Feeder, or Viscera Seer (they're just better sac outlets for you deck, if you're looking for one)

-1 Bad Moon (you don't have enough creatures for this to actually help you)

+1 Gaea's Anthem or Death Pit Offering (both are better anthems for your deck, if you want an anthem)

-1 From Under the Floorboards (you have no ways to enable the madness and it's a subpar spell otherwise)

+1 Army of The Dammed (if you want a token maker, hard to beat this. You can also mill it when you don't want it and flash it back later)

-1 Mutilate (10 swamps aren't enough to make this card worth it)

+1 Black Sun's Zenith, Languish, or Toxic Deluge (if you're looking for a sweeper that doesn't say "destroy", these are the best)
