Decimator of the Provinces Discussion

I hate to be a Mr. Poopybutthole, but Decimator of the Provinces can't be played due to green being in its color identity. Maybe throw in a Fury Charm for some options and faster drop time from other spells.

I like the deck, though. Very non-traditional and cheap to build.

Definitely excited to see what people are trying with the new saproline/fungus tribal stuff! This is a nice mono green budget version, I especially like the combo of Blanchwood Armor and Life and Limb (though it does make your lands week to creature removal).

The first thing I'd suggest is dropping the land count to about 22 or 21. You are running mostly one drops and you also have 7 mana dorks (and you have 65 cards). So cutting down on lands will help smooth out your draws and prevent mana flooding.

I was thinking about a good way for you to improve this deck with out increasing the price too much. I think big game closers like Cultivator of Blades that utilize the large number of creatures is defs the way to go. So here are some suggestions for how to boost the "go wide" strategy of the deck: Song of Freyalise boosts and protects your team for the big attack and ramps you in the turns before, combined with the song, which taps your creatures, Harvest Season can ramp you super hard to get a bunch of mana to cast Decimator of the Provinces as another big game closer.

Anyways, good luck with the deck. If you are interested in brewing modern decks, I've got a podcast ( all about that!

OptimalGreen: Definitely Decimator of the Provinces. Stupid cast trigger.

smashadams83: I'll take a look when I get some free time! :) I'm glad I could inspire you.

Maybe also Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, Taigam, hand of Sidisi, and Whip of Erebos? I also like Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Lotleth Troll with this commander, Vessel of Nascency, and maybe even Elder Deep-Fiend, Distended Mindbender, and Decimator of the Provinces.

This is a great list for reference - thank you!

Happy brewing!

Fair enough! Have you also considered Decimator of the Provinces ?

Hey friend! Welcome to the wonderful world that is Sidisi EDH!

My gut instinct here by looking at your list (and from your description) is that you're aiming to go wide- you're looking to overwhelm the board with so many zombies that your opponents don't know what to do with themselves. If this is true, then let's look at some ways you can get out as many zombies as possible:

-Mesmeric Orb is my personal favorite. Each permanent untapping is a unique trigger, and will give you a zombie if it's respectively milled card was a creature. This can further be exploited by combining it with Aphetto Alchemist, Seeker of Skybreak, or even good ole' Basalt Monolith along with something like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in the deck to instantly (and for little mana investment) get as many zombies as you'd like. However! Infinite combos like this are not for everyone, so we can look at some less abusive options:

-Embalmer's Tools was something I'd initially overlooked in my own build. However, once I gave it a shot I realized it's value, and it's remained a staple to this day. Being a force-tapping ability allows you to insta-tap a newly created zombie to mill yourself one, and potentially hit a creature. My deck hovers around 40% creatures, and this allows it to maintain enough consistency that I find these tools invaluable.

-Parallel Lives is more used in conjecture with other cards, and doesn't pull as much weight by itself given the mana investment, but is still worth the consideration.

-Lastly, I wanted to refer you to consider Dredge options: Life from the Loam can be a straight replacement for Splendid Reclamation due to it's usefulness even when milled, and Stinkweed Imp is a continuous threat to flyers that may swing your way. There are, however, many other options in this category such as Dakmor Salvage and Golgari Grave-Troll that are popular as well.

Due to Sidisi's rules, she cares more about individual INSTANCES of self-mill, not LARGE chunks of self-mill. Once you get your zombie count high enough, you need to start examining how those zombies are going to win you the game. Most of the time, it's through face-damage. Zombie lords to give them a little extra punch help a lot here. I noticed you had a couple staples, but there are some additional options to consider such as Death Baron, Zombie Master, Undead Warchief, and even Metallic Mimic, all of which can give you some some additional threat on the board. While you already have Wonder, I've always enjoyed using Filth in conjuncture with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to sneak through unexpectedly, and additionally have had some fun with Eldrazi Monument, Akroma's Memorial, Craterhoof Behemoth, and Decimator of the Provinces.

The remainder of the recommendations come in the form of alternative wincons, which are typically applied against those pesky pillow-fort players or those who seem to be matching you token-for-token to the point where you just can't get through. Things like Altar of Dementia can always be used on yourself for general utility or an enemy to devastating effect (it's always fun to watch someone struggle with something like Mystical Tutor when they know you'll just force them to mill it), and other options include things like Gempalm Polluter and Lich Lord of Unx.

Hopefully this has given you some food for thought, and if I was totally wrong on the direction you want this deck to head, please let me know so I can adjust my suggestions to suit your playstyle more!
