Eternal Scourge Discussion

Hello, from your post i just realized that i am not the only person who is tinkering with a deck built around Skaab Ruinator
So here is what ideas i came up with till now:
1# Build an all in deck with the best cheap mill spells, Hedron Crab, Minister of Inquiries, Shriekhorn (a few - as its sadly an artifact), Dream Twist, Contingency Plan - ad 3 playsets of "real" creatures Narcomoeba, Skaab Ruinator, Eternal Scourge - and a flex slot, that at the moment i fill with Stitchwing Skaab, but it could be Magus of the Bazaar.
The problem is that this version has obvious problems with stuff like Path to Exile, (and grave hate) despite being really fast.
2# Build a deck that abuses Gifts Ungiven with Skaab Ruinator as win condition (since this creature doesn't need slots devoted to Unburial Rites.
In such a shell Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw, Plaxmanta + Pit Keeper as a worse Snapcaster Mage would do well.
For turn one stuff like Siren Stormtamer/Martyr of Frost or stuff like Vampire Cutthroat would be ideal.
P.s.:Laboratory Maniac is a trap - for this deck.
There are alternatives that are a lot better - like Psychic Spiral + Mystic Retrieval which can work out of the graveyard, and mill the opponent out of nowhere.

Hey, bud. I just found this and I have to say I love everything about it and will be building something like it. One question for you though:
Why not include Eternal Scourge? It increases the number available of tutors for a win-button, and lets you combo off with any 0-cost sac-land.

Wow, this deck seems really cool! If I had to make a couple of suggestions, Eternal Scourge is an excellent card to exile from graveyards, Grim Flayer is fantastic as an early beater that can fill your yard up, Geralf's Masterpiece works well with reanimation triggers and is at its finest when in your graveyard, and Gnarlwood Dryad loves full graveyards. +1 from me!

If you have the cards then by all means do so. Without posting your whole collection cards to suggest are tricky. Sanitarium Skeleton is pretty decent in a toolbox. Scrapheap Scrounger is annoying too. Cut and Torment of Hailfire are really good. There is a fair amount of graveyard hate in my meta so I wouldn't run too much recursion. Hand disruption between Transgress the Mind Lay Bare the Heart and even good old Mind Rot. Run sets of 2 and 3 of copies of utility cards. You could be real annoying and be able to sideboard pretty well without ruining your consistency. Eternal Scourge is awesome. A single Akoum Firebird is a good mana sink. Try and ignore having a theme, and run something fun to play. If you have any sort of good lands other than Blooming Marsh let us know what they are and we can build around it. Any cycle lands?

Thanks for awesome suggestions Hyperalgialysis!
I'll definitely try Eternal Scourge even though I won't probably need it yet. We are all newbies in my play group and there is very little control. It could come in handy later though!
I won't add Rune-Scarred Demon yet. I already run Sidisi, Undead Vizier + handful of creature-only tutors while the rest of the group runs 0-2 tutors. I'll wait a little bit for them to catch up.
I really like Liliana, Death's Majesty. She does everything my deck wants to do! I'll be sure to get her next time I'm spending cash on MtG.

Eternal Scourge is really valuable in this type of strategy. For the most part from playing against this particular commander a ton, the way to deal with her is to exile everything all at once or bounce everything and then do a Windfall type effect. Eternal Scourge can be awesome in these situations. As for what to cut, no clue. I can say that its addition to a few of my friends decks have made them much harder to deal with. Rune-Scarred Demon is also amazing as a tutor and puts out that big old body. I also really think Liliana, Death's Majesty would be worth a spot if you can find room.
