In addition to that, what would you swap out for Triskelion/Coat with Venom or Touch of Moonglove?

Nice idea Funkydiscogod! It actually looks like you can get Triskelion for around 75 cents on TCGplayer, and you wouldn't even need to update the mana base. Just get out a Vraska, hit Triskelion with Coat with Venom and you're good to go.

Responces to fools who believe attacking you can result in anything other than you're own death:

Cast Down, Chill to the Bone, Doom Blade, Eyeblight's Ending, Go for the Throat, Grisly Spectacle, Hero's Downfall, Hideous End, Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Rend Flesh

Methods of killing more fit for one of the Scarab God's boundless intellect:

Coat with Venom, Fatal Blow, Necrobite, Touch of Moonglove, Virulent Swipe

mrmoo Hi! I'm currently making a sideboard which will consist of Tidehollow Strix, Some kind of non-sac card draw instead of Altar's Reap and maybe Coat with Venom or something like it. AEtherize is another card I'm considering for the sideboard. Oh yeah, the deck is now $3 on TCGPlayer when you hit optimize cart.

Oblivion Strike could be an alternative to Final Reward

Nest of Scarabs and Blowfly Infestation is potentially an infinite combo.

Necroskitter is super powerful with a -1/-1 counter deck

Coat with Venom, Touch of Moonglove and Virulent Swipe are neat combat tricks that give deathtouch and are much better than Serpent's Gift

I would recommend Dauthi Slayer its a very solid card in the format because there are not many other creatures that have shadow. Possibly also Coat with Venom

Zero1911: The purpose of Precursor Golem is exactly that, targeting, but more so for me than them. It's the combo potential with Path to Exile if needed or more specifically Grim Affliction; being instant I can respond immediately to a removal. I want to see if I can "surprise" ult one of my walkers since most of their +1/2's are fairly benign but their Ult's are basically win-conditions if they go off. I've put them to good use with Shelter, Dark Dabbling, and Coat with Venom. I'm thinking of adding a Deepglow Skate despite the cost on it, I'm trying to keep additional additions to under $2 but that Skate...

Sunscape Familiar will likely get ax'd once I get near 100 cards since it doesn't offer anything aside from blue reduction. Nightscape Familiar is in the mail though, makes for a decent chump blocker later one in addition to the reduction. I might add 1 more rock. These are mostly all cards I already had in another deck.

This is casual build obviously and isn't supposed to be the cookie-cutter type. Main Win-con will end up being creature/Commander damage in the end; most likely a result of Reiver Demon or Scourglass going off with my Artifact Creatures on the field. Or dropping Open the Vaults in the late game. The fun part is figuring out how to get there. This is still being tinkered with.

Mr_Radical Thanks for the sweet suggestions. I found a supper troll combo that involves Chandra's Ignition, Basilisk Collar/Coat with Venom and Dread Slaver which wipes the board and put them all on ur side. Thanks for the help. BTW ur deck is sweet as well.
