Fleshbag Marauder Discussion

Doomdragon271 on Waste Not.Deck

Removed:

Attrition Free sac outlets are better.

Buried Alive Significantly reduced need for creature tutors.

Chainer, Dementia Master Liliana is more focused towards the discard aspect I want.

Curse of Disturbance With fewer creatures comes less value out of this cycle of curses

Entomb Less need for creature tutors.

Fellwar Stone Lower curve means that I want to be using mana more efficiently, as opposed to tapping out on 2 to ramp.

Fleshbag Marauder Less powerful than Plaguecrafter

Gray Merchant of Asphodel less overall devotion with the reduced creature count

Lightning Greaves Fewer creatures to protect in this version

Scythe Specter Too slow for this type of effect, the idea is to get rid of all opponent's hands as fast as possible and to keep them empty.

Stitcher's Supplier Less graveyard focus now, I dont need the self mill as much.

Victimize There just aren't enough good targets for this spell to be useful.

Added:

1 x Swamp & Terrain Generator Upping the overall land count by 2

Liliana Vess More Discard, yay, also, more tutors.

Animate Dead the replacement for victimize, grabs one very important creature.

Altar of the Brood Part of an infinite combo with Gravecrawler

Razaketh, the Foulblooded More tutors!

Initiates of the Ebon Hand Part of another infinite combo with Gravecrawler + Reassembling Skeleton

Sensei's Divining Top Card selection is great.

Bad Moon , Still on the fence about this one, Bloodflow Connoisseur might be the pick here.

Phyrexian Altar More infinite combos with Gravecrawler

Phyrexian Arena More consistent card draw.

Vampiric Tutor And even more tutors.

Buried Alive , Dread Summons , Altar of Dementia , and Entomb could be good options to help fill graveyards with targets for Scarab or to help find cards that reanimate themselves, like Gravecrawler. Speaking of Gravecrawler, if you wanted an infinite combo, you could run Phyrexian Altar to combo with Gravecrawler and Diregraf Captain/Altar of the Brood/Plaguebelcher.

I'd probably cut Mastermind's Acquisition unless your playgroup is OK with you pulling in cards from outside of the game or a "wishboard".

I'd also cut Doom Blade for Fleshbag Marauder , to help you interact more against hexproof/indestructible creatures. Plus, it's a zombie. You might also want to run a bit more manarocks to ensure you can play your more expensive spells or get more Scarab activations per turn cycle.

Overall, the deck looks pretty good and I've been considering building Scarab for a while, and this is pretty similar to what I'd build.

Fleshbag Marauder is also misspelled. Though I’m not sure if that would Disallow a save.

Check out the mana base. They have alot of articles for 20-40$ commanders. A few I remember were Selenia, Dark Angel , Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest , and Edric, Spymaster of Trest . As for a suggestion of my own Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can be relatively cheap, and if you want annoying make it a "everybody discard/sacrifice" deck with things like Miasmic Mummy and Fleshbag Marauder types.

Fleshbag Marauder

Aura Shards

Teysa, Orzhov Scion

Damnation

Parallel Lives

Karmic Guide

Genesis Wave

Path to Exile

All of these are cards I have had in my karador at one point. It has gone from spirit tribal, to tokens, to cheating out big stuff, to combo, and it has become a fairly well tuned hulkweaver deck. All of them hold a special place in my heart for all of the hours over the past 9ish years they have spent in my hand waiting for the perfect moment to shine.

Pikobyte on Never Play In Graveyards

Ok, that’s something to work with :-)

A solid mill package would be Mesmeric Orb , Hedron Crab and Sidisi, Brood Tyrant . Sidisi also makes you tokens to support your aristocrats theme.

To protect your commander, cards like Diplomatic Immunity , Curator's Ward and Command Beacon are key. A well filled graveyard is only good with Muldrotha out. While the first 2 offer superior protection, command beacon allows you to play around commander tax and always play Muldrotha for 6 no matter how often she was killed.

Finally your deck wants some creatures that give you profit when they die and some ways to let them die. Caustic Caterpillar is a nice one, it can bringt itself in the graveyard while harming your opponents and can be recast. Spore Frog offers superior protection every turn. Siren Stormtamer is nice against spot removal and can even counter things like a Bojuka Bog . For more mean shenanigans you could add Aura Thief to steal goodstuff like mana-doublers, propaganda like effects and much more and Mindslicer to empty everyone’s hand while you keep using your graveyard as your hand. Night Incarnate is a beast against decks like elves, goblins, tokens etc.

With cards High Market and Phyrexian Tower you can sac creatures with triggers on death at instant speed well timed the moment you need them to die. And finally Grave Pact turns every creature you send to your grave to a Fleshbag Marauder for your opponents.

Hope this helps, none of these should be too expensive, only command beacon is a bit more I guess. If you like this playstyle and want to add a gem that’s slightly more expensive I bet you find something in my decklist you desire.
