I'm running Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor since they do the same thing. Enlightened Tutor is a 1 drop that gets me any enchantment, including things like Purphoros, God of the Forge, Grave Pact, Vicious Shadows ect.

As for draw, since I'm already sacing things, I may as well use things like Dark Prophecy to get value from my things dying, and things like Smothering Abomination can be used pretty much any time. I prefer things that I can use more than once to generate card advantage :)

I also noticed you're lacking in card draw which usually wins games in EDH: Phyrexian Arena, Sylvan Library, Ambition's Cost/Ancient Craving, Armorcraft Judge/Inspiring Call, Shamanic Revelation/Collective Unconscious, Elemental Bond, Mentor of the Meek, Syphon Mind, Dark Prophecy, Carnage Altar/Phyrexian Vault, Harvester of Souls, Promise of Power, Decree of Pain (so good), Infernal Offering... this would be a decent pool to pick out of. I personally try to run as much draw as possible. IMO, you'd want to run atleast 6 draw cards on a curve. On top of more draw spells, you could also go the Land Tax + Scroll Rack route. It depends on how much ya have to spend on cards :P

I've been thinking about it and here are some others that would work well in your deck.

Dark Prophecy amazing card draw with a sac deck.

Black Market + Thornbite Staff can go infinite if that's your jam.

Grave Betrayal is just mean!

Blade of the Bloodchief makes any creature huge!

Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos are super effective board wipes that even deal with indestructible and protection.

I'm gonna say it again Thornbite Staff!!!!!!!!!

Also, needs more Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Also also, cut that Blue Sun's Zenith bs. That card is garbage and I'll fight anyone who disagrees. You have so many better options in black: Grim Haruspex, Dark Prophecy, Infernal Tribute for god's sake, Necropotence if you're a wanker, ffs Mentor of the Meek does work in a deck shitting out 2/2 zombies. Also, get rid of Rhystic Study for essentially the same reason. Don't play staples just because they're staples. Find ways to get those effects that synergize with your decks' strategies. It'll make your decks feel and play more uniquely which is doubly rewarding in that it is satisfying to have created something special, and it's less predictable and interruptible because you keep your opponents' off balance. Everyone is expecting Rhystic Study, nobody is expecting Phyrexian Etchings, or to have it Donated to them after you used it for 10 turns...

strembl7 on Mazirek's mates, prepare the sacrifices

2 weeks ago

Ok, so, I have been playing Mazirek since it was released. My meta is fairly competitive, so I'll have had a different experience than you will, but I can offer both some card advice, and some priority cards to focus on finding if your budget ever increases. I'll include a link at the end of this comment if you want to look.

First things first: everything with persist is a combo with Mazirek. It dies, it gets -1/-1, and then gets the +1/+1 from Mazirek. These cancel one another out. Aerie Ouphes goes infinite on its own with Mazirek - no sacrifice outlet is needed. Woodfall Primus is always going to be worth playing. Puppeteer Clique is also worth using and re-using to get all creatures from the graveyard with infinite +1/+1 counters. Not too shabby. There are others depending on how much of a combo deck you want this to be.

Past that, there are some cards that are just completely broken in Mazirek. One such card is Dark Prophecy. It will give you a massive amount of card draw. I also can't help but notice that you do not have a Phyrexian Arena in here. It is more or less not optional in these colors. For a little higher budget look to Necropotence, the best card draw in Commander. If you can afford to buy both, you should run both. Primal Vigor is worth playing if your friends aren't also playing a token deck (or an Atraxa deck).

For token generation, the most powerfulnoptions for this shell are without a doubt Bitterblossom and Awakening Zone. From Beyond, Creakwood Liege, and Master of the Wild Hunt are all very good as well. Then, to sacrifice them, you're going to want either an infinite sac outlet (especially if you are trying to do a persist combo) such as Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar. If you want to play a little more fair, Evolutionary Leap is awesome. Don't forget Tomb of Urami as a finisher.

As for non-budget cards: fetch lands are each a sac trigger. My deck has all of the possible fetch lands (such as Verdant Catacombs) and a Crucible of Worlds. If you go that route, there are plenty of lands that sac for various reasons. See my deck for a convenient list. One of the best cards in this playstyle is Earthcraft, and it makes infinite tokens with Squirrel Nest. Scapeshift in the later game will make most of your creatures lethal.

MRDOOM3 on 1 is NOT the loneliest number

You also can look at Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, Dark Prophecy if you have enough sac outlets to make it useful, Erebos, God of the Dead, and Greed. If only Yawgmoth's Bargain and Griselbrand were EDH legal... Oh well...
