Festering Mummy Discussion

Thanks for the comment Echtelon!

I took a look at your deck, and you are actually doing a few things I removed from this deck lol. I ended up removing the things that drop a lot of counters on my own creatures because the only thing that cares about many counters on a single target is Nest of Scarabs, and I prefer going with ways to get a small number counters multiple times. For example, if I have out Festering Mummy and drop a Plague Belcher, I'll get the trigger from the belcher's counters, which I'll put on the Festering Mummy to then kill the mummy which creates another -1 counter PLUS then the dying zombie trigger on Plague Belcher.

I do like the idea you have to drop lots of counters on Soulstinger to kill him, and then bring him back with Supernatural Stamina... which is one of my favorite cards in this deck because it ALSO drops them back tapped to trigger Throne of the God-Pharaoh. I may have to try Soulstinger again.

Try to cut down on Festering Mummy. It isn't all that great.

I'd say your sideboard should be

4x Duress

3x Doomfall

3x Vraska's Contempt (or Hour of Glory if you wanna be a bit more budget)

3x Sentinel Totem or Crook of Condemnation

2x Sorcerous Spyglass

Also in your mainboard I'd personally change the 3x Nest of Scarabs to 3x Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Doing that you'll get a bit more value out of your creatures swinging/crewing in each turn. Going wide isn't really something you'd need from the nest, but it combos well with the throne if you can get a bunch of insects out.

Replace the 2 Vicious Conquistador and 2 Festering Mummy for 4x Night Market Lookout. The lookout is just really good at crewing the harvester, and it drains rather than just dealing damage. In this deck it gives you more value than the conquistador in the long run.

Then I'd replace the other 2 Festering Mummy for 2 Doomed Dissenter. Dissenter can take the -1/-1 counters from Plague Belcher and becomes a bigger creature which you can put more counters on if you want. Slightly more efficient than the mummy in that regard.

Overall though, the deck seems pretty sweet

Wow! this is increadibly similar to my token engine deck Abzan Token Engine

I really like the Soulstinger idea, think I might try that out and see how it goes. Do you think Festering Mummy isn't worth putting in here?

Supernatural Stamina deserves a place in you sb. The ability to bounce creatures like Festering Mummy and Channeler Initiate double their effectiveness while also acting as a second "Hapatra's Mark"

I'd replace Festering Goblin or Festering Mummy with Bond Beetle as I find it hard to justify playing cards that give -1/-1 until end of turn on opponent creature unless there's some specific benifit.

Rot Shambler, Bloodbriar, Voracious Null for a bit of muscle gain.

Why aren't you playing Bontu the Glorified? He was made for decks like this.

Brindle Boar for some quick lifegain.

And then there's creatures with undying and unearth that are easily brought back for a second sacrifice.

Ever thought about running Awakening Zone or From Beyond? You could use the Eldrazi spawns/scions as mana ramp or chump blockers or sacrificial minions as long as you have an outlet.

Bontu's Monument and Rhonas's Monument for cheaper creatures.

I have a casual deck titled Suicidal Thoughts that focuses on sacrificing. Check it out if you're interested.

Here's a couple I have in my budget black deck:Festering Mummy, Quest for the Gravelord, Doomed Dissenter, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Hopefully these help :)
