Other black creatures you control get +1/+1.
Other green creatures you control get +1/+1.
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may put a 1/1 black and green Worm creature token into play.
This is from my perspective so take it with a grain of salt, keep in mind I don't play "The Rock", but have played against very often. I would cut a putrefy for 1x Dismember
, I would cut 1x Maelstrom Pulse
for 1x more Abrupt Decay
. Reason being for Abrupt Decay
lower cmc and destroys most things at instant speed, Maelstrom Pulse
cost 1 more and is at sorcery speed although we would still like to see one. Dismember
is added because it helps in certain situations (indestructible) and is almost free if need to be.
Although I like Creakwood Liege the CMC is a bit high. Look at it this way, you have 3x in the deck more than likely you will draw it, and "The Rock" in modern is more of a control deck, so its 4cmc permits you to playing it on turn 4 since you'd rather not want to tap out and deal with what most modern decks can do by turn 4, albeit you will be disrupting them the whole way, but you want to make sure you can lock them out of the win. So that leaves it for turn 6 or more and in order for that to work you would have to cut more creatures and make it so overbearing control to make it more successful in a competitive setting as well as consistent. So instead we will change it in more of a direction you would like. Since Dark Confidant is out of budget that slows your draws down, Bow of Nylea I would say cut it for better things and I will explain why in a moment. (The Scooze and Thrun seem to have the right numbers)Since other Rock decks would be outpacing at this current build with the lack of Tarmo and Confidant we need to focus on the slots we will have open so with Creakwood, Phyrexian Arena, Bow of Nylea gone that opens up 5 spots, with those 5 spots since we lack speed draw and a nice beater we probably should focus on a beater that is resilient yet cost effective CMC wise and thats hard to do. Hmmm.. how about Tombstalker or Avatar of Woe since effectively you will be adding things to the graveyard consistently enough that either of these can come out quick and decimate and they are only a 1-2.
Love this.. Additional +1, consider Creakwood Liege . Looks like a good fit
- basically makes 3/3 tokens each turn, also pumps up your commander to a 7/7
Voracious Dragon is not a good fit unless you add Krenko, Mob Boss ...just saying
Squee, Goblin Nabob is a good repeatable creature to sac, that survives a board wipe
Eternal Witness to get back key cards
Goblin Sharpshooter - combos well in sac oriented decks
Purphoros, God of the Forge - combos well with token generators
Skullclamp for card draw
Garruk, Primal Hunter for card draw and token generation
If you want more consistency, try adding some tutors such as:
Fauna Shaman - she works well with squee goblin nabob
Yisan, the Wanderer Bard - works for a few turns at least
Tooth and Nail one of the better tutors for green edh
you can also look at my deck Sac That ****, it is a token generating deck with sac outlets, but it has a different focus and a different commander in the same colors.
You can build budget rock with things like Garruk (4 and 5 drop versions), and Creakwood Liege
has more benefit than the 1/1 tokens it produces. It buffs your green and your black creatures by 1, So those green and black tokens it produces are 3/3's and your commander gets +2/+2 from it, and since commander damage is one of the win conditions, it is a good card IMHO. And with your enchantments, it could be producing up to 4 tokens a turn. And if your are playing tricks such as ETB effects and/or die effects, 1-4 tokens a turn is helps.
I would of pulled Boartusk Liege
, if I was going to pull either of the lieges, but again, it buffs you commander, and a lot of your other cards.
I some times run Prossh in my Sac That **** deck, you can look there for other ideas if you want.
Thanks so much for the feedback! I'm surprised you recommend more sac outlets as I have about seven - (no cost: Perilous Forays , Bloodshot Cyclops , Stronghold Assassin ) or (cost: Birthing Pod , Lyzolda, the Blood Witch , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Corpse Harvester . However, I do like the idea of swapping out the Corpse Harvester for an Ashnod's Altar as that would help with the mana intensity.
I like Dictate of Erebos and in fact, used to have one before I traded it! However, isn't it a bit expensive?
Finally, I really like the idea of token creation. I used to have a Pawn of Ulamog that helped as well. I like Ant Queen and Jade Mage and I think I can swing the mana intensity. Definitely adding Creakwood Liege and Avenger of Zendikar to Maybeboard. Not because I don't think they belong but rather, one must put limits on how much one spends on Magic (per month).
Good to see people running Kresh, used to have one as my main EDH deck for quite a while.
Look at running some more sac outlets, maybe ones such as Phyrexian Altar Ashnod's Altar Viscera Seer Bloodflow Connoisseur Attrition Goblin Bombardment . Seeing as you're already running Slum Reaper maybe look at running Fleshbag Marauder as well. Same goes for Dictate of Erebos as you're already running Grave Pact and Butcher of Malakir
Deathbringer Thoctar Hissing Iguanar and Rockslide Elemental would work well if you add in some more sac outlets. If you do add in extra sac outlets I'd suggest adding in cards which pump out tokens for you to utilize, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper already fills that role perfectly for when your nontoken creatures die, though there are others you can look at as well such as Creakwood Liege Avenger of Zendikar Grave Titan or ones which able you to pump excess mana into to create tokens e.g. Ant Queen Jade Mage . When the next commander comes out, Ghoulcaller Gisa may be able to fit theme for sac + token gen as well.
If you're looking for a sweet big fattie then a card such as Lord of Extinction would work nicely for the deck as well.
+1 for the Kresh.
