Death Frenzy Discussion

Snacrifice on Budget Jarad, about 20 dollars

Always love budget decks!

You should check out Keeper of the Dead and Deglamer

Instead of Death Frenzy, you could run Infest or Biting Rain or Drown in Sorrow for a lower curve, though you lose the lifegain. Greenseeker is better than terramorphic for fetching lands, so is Silverglade Pathfinder.

Undertaker gives you more recur as well and lets you shuffle creatures in your graveyard to your hand. Hope you like the suggestions!

You've got a crazy manabase! Is this budget? Otherwise, Cavern of Souls is your best friend. Also, better than Death Frenzy is Devouring Greed because you can win out of nowhere. If you want some ideas, check out my Zubera brew: Zubera Tribal (yes, it's a thing).

Stonewaul on Meren help needed

Choosing to go reanimate I like as that is my take on Meren. As for your choices of cards is a different thing. Meren has so many ways to take her even in this realm. Also so many GREAT OPTIONS! I tend to shy away from the big creature beat down and stick with a heavier take on value creatures. The better the ETB/LTB trigger there is the more I tend to lean toward it.

Cards I am not a fan of at quick glance:

The Gitrog Monster-without a way to recur lands he will only slow you down if you aren't winning quickly. Life from the Loam is a great card to pair with him.

Death Frenzy-so expensive for a weak effect. Cards like Sudden Spoiling and Decree of Pain are similar but show the difference in power level.

Feed the Clan-utter crap! No worthwhile synergy or effect for your deck. Make your turn and mana more useful. If you want life play a card like Crypt Incursion. Has potential of netting insane life gain and cripples anothers GY. But I am not a fan of pure life gain cards outside decks that benefit from it.

Here is a link to my Dirty Girl. This deck is absolutely my favorite to play and I am always willing to adjust and playtest new cards. Even though I have put a lot into this deck I don't shy away from suggestions and adjusting it. Also this is not super competitive. But just a strong deck to play at any Commander game. Hope this helps.

Jacen956 on Kresh, my what big fangs you have..

I have made a bunch of adjustments to the first draft! Thanks for the recommendation with the Black cards. I added things like Go for the Throat, Putrefy, Terminate, Death Frenzy, and Savage Twister. I am going to go in and adjust my description as well to see if I can get any other suggestions!

Bovine073 on Fate Reforged Draft Cube (KTK/KTK/FRF)

Do you have the 20 enemy-colored cards from KTK/FRF? In each set of 4 there is 1 common, 2 uncommons, 1 rare (common is from FRF, rest from KTK).

R/W: Highspire Mantis, Ride Down, Deflecting Palm, War Flare

G/B: Death Frenzy, Kin-Tree Invocation, Rakshasa Deathdealer, Grim Contest

U/G: Icefeather Aven, Secret Plans, Sagu Mauler, Ethereal Ambush

R/U: Winterflame, Master the Way, Mindswipe, Cunning Strike

W/B: Chief of the Edge, Chief of the Scale, Utter End, Harsh Sustenance.

There is also the cycle of the 6-costed KTK Commons with a morph for 5 mana. Ponyback Brigade, Abomination of Gudul, 1 for every other clan.

Hope I could help show you some more cycles.

Bovine073 on Fate Reforged Draft Cube (KTK/KTK/FRF)

Hey there, I have a tarkir cube as well. For some custom categories I would suggest adding stuff for each clan. I am still working on some of my dual-colored ones, deciding whether or not just to put them in #Multicolored or #Jeskai or something like that. For instance, Cunning Breezedancer could go into Jeskai, or Multicolored (enemy, dual colored cards such as Death Frenzy would go into both Sultai and Abzan).

My cube is 360, I'll try to give you some suggestions.

-Monastery Mentor+Strongarm Monk is an amazing combo, especially paired with something like Great Teacher's Decree. (I recently traded for one, and it's awesome)

-I personally have added the planeswalkers (so far only the two sarkhans, budget yay), I don't think they're uneven as black is the only color that only has one PW, all the rest have 2, I believe. (Narset, Sorin, Ugin, Sarkhan Dragonspeaker, Sarkhan Unbroken).

-My cube is personally not ratioed into pre-set packs (like 2R/M, 4U, etc.) but I like it here, great job on that!

-Only now I realize that your cube is not singleton! Interesting, another difference from mine.

-I would also recommend checking the tarkir wiki page(s) to find all the megacycles of cards (such as the 5 megamorph dragons (Herdchaser Dragon, the 5 megamorph 2 mana creatures (Hidden Dragonslayer Den Protector), also the regents (Thunderbreak Regent), you get the point. Also all the khans if you don't have them (the cycles from FRF) with Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Yasova Dragonclaw, Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, etc. So check out the cycles for sure, if you haven't already.

-Hardened Scales, as well.

-Lastly, make sure you have all the charms, ascendancies, and banners for each clan. (I didn't check if you did, sorry lol).

I hope I could help, I'd be happy to offer any more sinsight!

Here's my cube, if you would like to take a look.
