Flesh Carver Discussion

Hey DieKnowMight! It looks like you have a lot of suggestions going on here. I'm no expert on Mardu commanders, but I have a few suggestions!

Magus of the Disk is a cheap wipe that can be brought back by Alesha, as is False Prophet. (He doesn't exile himself, as he is dead.)

Elspeth, Sun's Champion has a wipe on her -2 that replicates the wipe people have been recommending to you.

Dolmen Gate is pretty solid, acting as damage negation similar to Iroas.

Cathars' Crusade acts similar to Gleam of Battle by giving counters. It's considered a commander staple for white, I would suggest picking up a few.

Mother of Runes is another way to protect your commander and can be used offensively to get a free swing in as well!

Stronghold Assassin goes 1 for 1 on creatures with your opponents, worthwhile since you can the creature he sacrifices and him if he dies.

Beetleback Chief is similar to Ponyback Brigade.

Balefire Liege could be useful, but unfortunately, Ashenmoor Liegeand Deathbringer Liege have a power of more than 2.

Oreskos Explorer helps search for lands if you are playing against ramp.

Legion Loyalist gives your tiny guys trample, but more importantly ignores tokens.

Flesh Carver drops a big token after he dies and can sacrifice things.

Dark Confidant might be a decent inclusion, since I don't think I have that many high CMC spells (Blasphemous Act and Insurrection).

I try to shy away from the more staple draw and counter spells, since they both synergise less with the deck's other cards and flavor, which is important (though Rhystic Study could be a flavor hit as well, I dislike playing with the card in general). I'd rather draw cards with Shadowmage Infiltrator than with his effective counterpart Phyrexian Altar, counter spells with Voidmage Prodigy instead of Counterspell and so on.

Goblin Bombardment was close to making the list despite its questionable flavor, though, now I've found more sacrifice outlets through Flesh Carver and Thoughtpicker Witch, I'm quite happy with the amount of them.

Hey UnleashedHavok, thanks for the suggestion! I used to use Flesh Carver, because it came in the Prossh, Skyraider of Kher precon deck I believe. Which I played a handful of games with before changing it up. It was pretty good, I distinctively remember getting a win using Flesh Carver once too. In this Mazirek deck I have been very picky about the token generating cards and the sac outlets I am using...currently I'm using mostly 1-2 CMC creatures that replace themselves with a token or cards that make a token every turn (for no mana) for generating tokens....and all sac outlets that cost no mana to activate or ones that draw cards. That way I pretty much always get both kinds of value (card draw and a replacement token) from any creature sacrifice interaction.

A card that I really enjoy in my Kresh the Bloodbraided is Flesh Carver. I know that you have to pay mana for his sacrifice, but if your opponent is not running black or artifacts (depends on your meta) he can be a surprisingly difficult threat very quickly. I have won games with him alone. I think he could have some fun interactions with your deck, and he would have a fun interaction with Mazireck.

Archetype of Aggression would help you more than Bloodfray GiantCarnival Hellsteed and Cryptborn Horror don't do as much as they should for their cost/conditions. Have you considered War Elemental and Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury instead?Also, Rakdos Ickspitter, Gore-House Chainwalker, and Splatter Thug could easily be cut out for effects that boost other, better creatures. Not to mention that haste providers like Mass Hysteria become dead draws once you have a way to put +1/+1 counters on creatures entering the battlefield (such as Drana or Necropolis Regent). Also, Caldera Hellion, Mephidross Vampire, Retribution of the Ancients, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden or Flesh Carver?
