Here are some mainly budget suggested adds:
Beastmaster Ascension - attack with prossh and 6 kobolds and they all get buffed.
Dictate of Erebos can visually be cast quicker in a three color deck before grave pact.
Journey to Eternity  Flip - some of the best budget recursion.
Pattern of Rebirth - can be used to get a combo piece like blood artist, or to get some board changer.
Champion of Lambholt - let's you make your creature almost unblockable.
Brawn and Anger are good especially in decks with built in ways to get into grave yard.
Diabolic Intent has dropped in price since reprint, it's good on token decks and cheaper than the main 2 tutors.
Primal Vigor is a viable doubling season, but only cast when ready to combo.
Phyrexian Altar has dropped to like $18, not budget but half of what it was. But Pitiless Plunderer will also work with prossh in play.
Creakwood Liege - buffs commander and makes tokens.
Smothering Abomination - good card draw in any black token deck. Sidisi, Undead Vizier easily recurable tutor.

Not really sure what to suggest, Golgari isn't really my thing.


I hope that I could be of some help!

DrukenReaps: You have a point, I'd like to fight the case of Creakwood Liege though, given that a majority of the creatures with Infect are Black or Green. Also the 3/3 tokens are good chumps, trades via Hell's Caretaker, and if they build up Triumph of the Hordes gives them all infect.

Agreed about the others being more "neat" than anything now that I look at it. I doubt really have enough WB spells for Deathbringer Liege, a ciphered creature can be removed, the other is kinda situational, and the hard to cast Obliterator. May need an extra removal spell in place of the other, but we'll see. Thanks for the suggestions.

TheAmazingSteve: I did think of that, and I had a few more sac outlets when I was considering a mill package, but yes, it seems a bandaid unless you can sac and repeat. Thanks for the suggestion.

So I would consider the following for removal Spoils of Blood, Call of the Nightwing, Dark Hatchling, Phyrexian Obliterator, Creakwood Liege, Deathbringer Liege.

I will say I'm listing some awesome cards, Obliterator in particular, but 4 black in a 4 color deck is nigh impossible to get consistently. The Lieges are good too but their focus on color holds them back in this deck. The other 3 are more along the lines of 'neat' meaning they are certainly cool but are either too inefficient or not impactful enough.

Hope that helps open up a little space.

Didn't say anything about it being a creature ;)

Granvix, Swarmlord

Legendary Planeswalker - Granvix

+1 Create three 1/1 green and black Insect tokens.

-4 Destroy target permanent. Search your library for a card with the same converted mana cost and put it onto the battlefield. Shuffle your library.

-7 You get an emblem with "Green creatures you control get +1/+1 and have trample, black creatures you control get +1/+1 and have deathtouch." and "Whenever a creature token enters the battlefield under your control, create twice that many."

Well this was a fun round of cycles :3

And honestly, it looks like a powerful PLaneswalker at face value, especially with paired with Doubling Season / Parallel Lives / Creakwood Liege, but in that respect it's no more powerful than Elspeth, Sun's Champion. So I think it's fairly balanced. Probably a Commander Walker, if I am being honest though.

I guess wildcard to recharge our mental batteries, lol.

Biggest ones I have to suggest: Jade Mage and Reassembling Skeleton. They're monsters. 2 mana for 1 sacrifice? Yes, PLEASE! Ant Queen is also good, similar, and a bigger body.

However if that is not enough- which I'll assume it's not- Artifact Mutation is freaking delicious. Bitterblossom is a staple. Creakwood Liege also pumps the majority of your deck. Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast is also decent removal and his ult is insane. Descent of the Dragons could be an alternate wincon. Dragonlair Spider looks like garbage but can get out of hand in a hurry. Druid's Call is honestly insane, it's a great deterrent for blockers. Elemental Mastery is the best. Feral Incarnation, because it has convoke, is not so bad either. Necrogenesis is classic. Ogre Slumlord is a baller and a great rattlesnake. Plague of Vermin is a really nice way to put some damage in on your opponents, especially if the political atmosphere is good. Rampaging Baloths is craaazy. Sprouting Thrinax has served me well. Sylvan Offering can make some friends AND some tokens. Verdant Embrace and Verdant Force are good. Wolfcaller's Howl is good I think?

Il tuo mazzo necessita di un buon pacchetto di removal per far morire quante più creature possibili, in modo da rendere Kresh grosso, ed allo stesso tempo ti servono cose che diano evasion a kresh per fare in modo che riesca a colpire. Farò suggerimenti su cambi funzionali e cambi di budget, sia in più economico che in più costoso.

Valuta di trovare un posto per carte che diano colpo sicuro a Kresh, come:

Valuta di inserire qualche sacrifice outlet come (nella sezione terre ce ne sono altre molto forti):

Nella sezione terre ti consiglio:

Se con queste sostituzioni nella mana base finisci per avere più di quattro terre che producono , valuta di inserire al posto di una creatura ramp la Chromatic Lantern, che è stata ristampata da poco ed è scesa.

Kogarashi on Can I Play Shaman of ...

Basically for the purposes of EDH/Commander deckbuilding, it doesn't matter if you're only going to play a card using a certain color, or only half of a split card, or whatever. If you want to include cards like Far / Away, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Shaman of the Great Hunt, General Tazri, or Creakwood Liege in a deck, you need to care about its color identity. Each of these cards has a color identity that is a sum of all its parts, not just what is in its casting cost.

Far / Away is UB, so you can't run it in a mono-blue Commander deck just because you aren't planning to ever play Away. Archangel Avacyn  Flip is RW because you count the back side of the card in the color, so it can't go in GW decks. Creakwood Liege is still GB, even though you could cast it with just one of those colors, so it can't go in your Gruul deck. General Tazri is five-color, so you need a five-color deck. And your Shaman of the Great Hunt needs a Temur deck (or more) to work.

Limitations like this make deckbuilding interesting and a challenge. Of course, there are always the people who just find the cheapest five-color commander they can just so they can avoid the color identity problem and end up playing 99-card singleton instead of actual EDH.

Of course, your particular group is always welcome to houserule it so that you could run Shaman of the Great Hunt in your deck.

The reason Extort is exempt from the color identity is because the mana symbol only shows up in reminder text, and reminder text isn't always guaranteed to be printed on the card--see Air Elemental (M19) versus Air Elemental (Ixalan).
