Creakwood Liege Discussion

IzmAYAYA: I think the changes you made -- removing Second Harvest and Deathreap Ritual were very good ones. I'm glad the deck worked smoothly! (Also, Noxious Revival is strictly better than Reclaim, whenever you feel like an upgrade.)

If you find you can't always attack well on T3, you could try out the new Demonic Embrace and see if that helps you! I also find the deck gets stronger as your interaction and tutors get lower in CMC -- or as you play less lands that enter the battlefield tapped :)

Of the potential additions, I've honestly wanted to add all of those myself. My first thoughts for cuts would be Creakwood Liege, Leyline Prowler, one land, and Rampant Growth.

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:

Biogenic Ooze Blade Splicer Master Splicer
Maul Splicer
Sensor Splicer
Noosegraf Mob
Chittering Witch
Creakwood Liege
Akroan Horse
Pentavus
Deep Forest Hermit
Deranged Hermit
Nut Collector
Duplicant
Geist-Honored Monk
Ghave, Guru of Spores
God-Eternal Oketra
Hornet Queen
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
Tendershoot Dryad
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner

Most of the above cards create creature tokens, so you'll probably want the usual: Doubling Season, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives if you include a lot of them.

Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:

Arboreal Grazer
Birds of Paradise
Devoted Druid
Incubation Druid
Faeburrow Elder
Custodi Soulbinders
Embodiment of Agonies
Fertilid
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)

And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:

Cubwarden
Auspicious Starrix
Cavern Whisperer
Gemrazer
Dirge Bat
Mindleecher
Migratory Greathorn
Necropanther
Sawtusk Demolisher

...all seem like good includes.

Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.

Have fun!

Vash13 thanks for the suggestions! I was thinking about Tortured Existence for my deck and you convinced me! Took out Creakwood Liege. I agree that Fiend Artisan is a great idea! Next paycheck maybe! Haha, I want to get it foil if I can. Greater Good seems like a great idea but I worry with my whinny deck it might not be worth it. Great suggestions dude!

I agree, Gift of the Deity doesn't seem very good for a five drop and risky to enchant since none of your creatures have hexproof. Cutting down 4 ofs into 2 ofs is not what you want to be doing in a deck that doesn't have tutors or card draw. You want the consistency of 4 ofs without draw. Lots of 2 ofs is not helping consistency.

Creakwood Liege is the best causal part of your deck. Consider building more around the Liege? Some good interactions are Worm Harvest with Life from the Loam to fuel Harvest both ways and Elemental Bond for ridiculous card draw. With Liege, 1/1 black/green Worms ETB as 3/3 creatures which triggers Bond. The same is true of any other black/green creature such as another copy of Liege or even Deathrite Shaman.

Grisly Salvage can help to find Liege or a land as well as fuel for the graveyard. Llanowar Dead is a 4/4 mana dork with Liege. Nice to have ramp for Liege that also has interaction with it. Putrid Leech is a 4/4 with Liege and can be a 6/6 attacking two drop. With tokens and graveyard strategies Dread Return is good reanimation for Liege.

I would cut some of the mana dorks, particularly Birds of Paradise and Elves of Deep Shadow . I feel like they would be bad draws in the mid-to-late game, and your average cmc is at 3 so I don't think you need it.

I would also replace Creakwood Liege with something like Coat of Arms , since it will make your snake's pretty huge.

Just as a clarification the +1/+1 and cost reduction don’t work the way you describe them. A card having both colors will not cause the ability to work twice. Fall of the Gavel will cost 2UW not 1UW. And prismot (assuming you change the wording to alter his color and not just his identity) will only be a 4/5 not a 5/6.

See Nightscape Familiar is basically what you have and only reduces Izzet cards by 1. Creakwood Liege on the other hand makes golgari creatures +2/+2. Now you could reward the ability to something like “costs 1 less for each color it shares with Prismot/prismots identity.” Or something of that nature.
