Corpse Churn Discussion

quitrage on Ultra Budget Sidisi EDH $16

Hey thanks for the feedback!

I really like Laquatus's Creativity and Whispering Madness since they're like a Forgotten Creation that I don't have to wait for the effect to trigger on, plus the cipher option on Whispering Madness is nice for the flexibility.

I initially had Deep Analysis and Sever the Bloodline in my first draft of this list but ended up cutting them for other cards. I still really want to include Sever the Bloodline as it is pretty decent removal and the flashback option is great, but I'm not sure what I would cut at the moment. I don't know how I missed Cackling Counterpart when building this, I'll have to figure out what I'm dropping but I definitely want to add him in so thanks for that suggestion.

I'm not too keen on Greenwarden of Murasa due to his CMC and the fact that he's $1.00 at the moment. I would definitely include him if it brought them to the battlefield instead of my hand, is there anything like him that does that I'm not already running?

Bitter Revelation and Mental Note seem a bit underwhelming to me, I feel like it's kinda like a less impactful Tracker's Instincts/Commune with the Gods/Forbidden Alchemy/Grisly Salvage but having a few more similar options might be good. I'll have to play the deck a few times and get a feel before I decide on that.

I 100% agree on Chronic Flooding, I like that it's more controlled and you don't have to worry about it decking you too much, gonna swap those out for each other.

I kinda feel the same about Corpse Churn as I did with Mental Note ect above, still I'll have to test the deck a few times to see if it needs more recurring options of that kind.

Embalmer's Tools was another card I had in the first draft of this list that I ended up cutting, it's another card I definitely want to include but am not sure what to cut, probably going to end up dropping Blossoming Wreath as you suggested earlier as I agree that it's not that impactful/worth taking up a slot so I might put it in to replace that.

Fact or Fiction and Epiphany at the Drownyard are both great cards, just need to make room for them, probably going to drop Feldon's Cane since I wont be as worried about decking myself without Curse of the Bloody Tome to make room for one of these.

Extractor Demon is already in the list haha, but yeah very good.

I'm liking Gather the Pack probably going to drop something like Wreath of Geists because I feel like there's already enough options for +x/+x per creature in graveyard in the deck already but we'll see.

Thanks again for the feedback.

Laquatus's Creativity, Whispering Madness and could be nice to get the mill going

Cackling Counterpart, Deep Analysis and Sever the Bloodline could be good because of flashback

Greenwarden of Murasa could be good, maybe over crop sigil

Mental Note could be clever

Bitter Revelation

Chronic Flooding seems better than the curse of the bloody tome

Corpse Churn

The new explore creatures form Ixalan could be good as well

Embalmer's Tools could be a clever way to mill yourself to hit creatures and create an army

Fact or Fiction and Epiphany at the Drownyard are good card draw with synergy

Extractor Demon seems good

Gather the Pack seems cool

Possibily cut feldon's cane, with elixir of immortality you have alot of inevibility

maybe blossoming wreath as well, gnaw to the bone does more work and having spells just gain you life aren't worth it a lot of the times IMO

I haven't had good expirences with temple of the false good, maybe cut for Rogue's Passage for a go tall creature?

This is a really sweet deck! Very budget and looks like it plays out in fun and unique ways each game. I really like tinkering with budget decks, as you can probably guess, and I am currently working of a couple of my own. If you have the chance maybe check them out? Un-FLICKING-believable!!!!!!!!!! is my newest. Thanks and keep building budget brews!

Consider a reanimator strategy using the black cycling creatures, other large creatures and Ever After to reanimate them?

Creature base such as Archfiend of Ifnir, Horror of the Broken Lands, Lurching Rotbeast, Bane of Bala Ged, Distended Mindbender, Vile Manifestation and Haunted Dead.

Use cycling, Call the Bloodline and Haunted Dead as discard outlets and Corpse Churn as another way to get cards in the graveyard and re-cycle a creature.

There's a few cards I could suggest on taking out, but I am biased towards more combo-strategies than aggro/midrange-strategies. Certain cards work way better in one variant, but can be pretty lousy for the other. I'll try my best to keep agro/midrange in mind, but I'm not the best expert on this matter.

Personally, I've never been a fan of Crow of Dark Tidings or Returned Centaur. I understand what they're meant to accomplish by getting you creatures into your graveyard, so if you feel those effects are more worth having then I'd keep them, though I'd personally run Undercity Informer over the Centaur for repeatable mill and as a sac-outlet.

Disentomb is pretty subpar in my opinion. Unless you specifically need a creature in hand Reanimate usually gets the job done pretty well and gives you the option to take your opponents' creatures as well.

I used to love Doomed Necromancer when I first got into Magic. He's not bad, but given you have a lot of token producers I can't help but feel Hell's Caretaker would seriously make use of them.

Corpse Churn feels a bit underwhelming. I understand its more mill, but I think if you could draw that many cards it wouldn't be a problem and that Painful Truths may be a better alternative.

The suggestions I made are those in which I feel were direct upgrades from what you previously had. It would help to hear from you what aspects you like the most about your deck so that I can make that the focus and point out what to cut to further emphasizes the points you like the most by reducing the cards that aren't doing enough in that regard. Do you have any cards you particularly value in this deck the most? That can give me a better idea where exactly you want to be taking your deck in the future.

Jotun Grunt works great against Tarmogoyf and with Death's Shadow decks everywhere the opponents graveyard is good for targets. As for self milling Corpse Churn is a decent mill card in black. I could throw Mindcrank in there.... I'll have to mess around with it once I update the deck list.

What about Grapple with the Past? Having the option to grab a land from the yard if needed is a small upside from Corpse Churn.
