Fleshbag Marauder Discussion

BoozeUsually on UltraBudget Value Meren

Entomber Exarch and Mesmeric Fiend definitely sound like cards to consider. I like the value package the deck has going now but really just don't know how it closes out games without Nooze/Mike & Friends combos. I guess I am going for keeping the board clear with Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, and Dictate of Erebos and then finish up with Kessig Cagebreakers and Pathbreaker Ibex for lethal combat.

I take it this is a take on an Aristocrats deck. If so, you've really got some things to change. Why do you have Odric, Lunarch Marshal, the two paragons, and Nantuko Husk? Instead of these, you could include more Xathrid Necromancer, Ghoulcaller Gisa, and Butcher of Malakir. You could also include cards like Ashnod's Altar, Anointed Procession, and Secure the Wastes. Cut Captain of the Watch, it's not helpful. Chainer's Edict or Fleshbag Marauder could be useful, as is Anowon, the Ruin Sage. Include 4 Butcher of Malakir and more Xathrid Necromancer. More token makers could also be useful. Gravepurge was a good choice. In your sideboard, you're only allowed to have 15 cards, and the monuments/Oketra are useless, and Champion of Stray Souls is bad. You also should improve your manabase with cards like Concealed Courtyard and Forsaken Sanctuary. If you have money for them, you could get Godless Shrine, Marsh Flats or Fetid Heath. Instead of Tragic Slip, just run something like Anguished Unmaking, Fatal Push, or Doom Blade. Also, you need a boardwipe like End Hostilities, Wrath of God, or Settle the Wreckage(best option). For token makers, use Legion's Landing  Flip. Another good sac outlet is Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, if you can flip it. Your sideboard needs a little bit of hate for graveyard shenanigans, so a couple copies of Rest in Peace are in order, as well as more recursion like Ravos, Soultender.

Hello! Awesome list, but Primeval Titan is banned sadly. I would also consider some good old sacrifice like Fleshbag Marauder and/or Merciless Executioner

tomhiggart, Devoted Druid as it can produce two cmc in a turn its often too slow and a waste of a reanimation target awhile Priest of Titania is normally just better. Merciless Executioner just takes up another slot filled by Fleshbag Marauder and often times we don't need more than one of that effect.

@mhegara: I used to run both Phyresis and Battle Mastery but eventually cut them as I found them to be more "win more" cards. Basically a good chunk of the time I used them I had a big enough board position that they really didn't matter. I do like that flavor text though! As far as Mox Diamond goes... if you can't justify the new inflated price tag you're right in the fact that big mana increaser rocks like Mana Vault as mentioned and Grim Monolith would probably work as suitable alternatives provided you are able to pull enough colored mana rocks to cast Zur. Basically you should just playtest them with your list and see how they interact with the cards in your deck.

@wipperwhill123: Thanks! Generally I'm not worried about what other people are playing unless it has a direct impact on my game plan; to that effect I find that preventing things with counterspells to be more effective than black discard as they may have several things that are gonna ruin my day but only have enough mana to do one per turn whereas a counterspell would stop that dead in its tracks. Also Hymn to Tourach is a little color intensive with the double black. If I do decided to throw some discard in in the future Mind Twist and Thoughtseize would indeed be at the top of my considerations. Thanks for the suggestions!

@Demonio_de_Laplace: Dark Confidant is way better than Dark Tutelage because I can get it out a turn earlier for one and also it can do a little damage, block a bomb of a creature or take the fall if a Fleshbag Marauder or Diabolic Edict slip through. It is nice being able to tutor up the Dark Tutelage but it's just not as versatile.

@MtgMaster02: True. Greater Auramancy does do a great deal in protecting Zur but I found that it was overkill with the amount of other things that protect Zur and could sometimes mess up an aura I wanted to cast from hand. It's always in mind though so if I find things aren't going so smoothly anymore I just may put it back in. Thanks for the input!

@Jewishman: I'd say to each their own and that my build would at least stand up fairly decently against it. I personally feel like it takes away the essence of a Zur deck being a toolbox commander, but that's just me.

@Kynelan: I had Ancient Tomb in the deck at one point but found it was too painful when combined with all the other ways that I make myself lose life in the deck.

@1992lucas: The deck needs redundancy in case something gets removed Armageddon and Swiftfoot Boots are just that. I do agree that 3 mana for Disallow is pretty hefty and Misdirection is hit and miss so I am keeping my eye on both of those as potential cuts. The only real target for Idyllic Tutor without Zur is Rest in Peace so that's just too limited. I highly dislike Remand as it gives whatever I deemed threatening enough to counter back to my opponent, Memory Lapse is better as it slows them down a whole turn; the card is negligible. Dig Through Time/Treasure Cruise both cost a ton and I normally don't want to exile anything from my graveyard as I can generally get the important things back, especially with me thinking about the addition of Yawgmoth's Will. Tainted Isle is too situational with the swamp requirement; if I were to swap anything out it'd be for an Adarkar Wastes or Underground River. Thanks for all of the suggestions! I'll definitely think about some of 'em during the next time I have time to do some editing

I used to run a Kresh the Bloodbraided EDH deck. He is an awesome, powerful commander that really exemplifies the destructive power of Jund. He's one of the best for killing with commander damage. Here's my suggestions of cards I've found to be invaluable:

Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner are musts. They're budget, they scale well in multiplayer, and if you sacrifice them to themselves they're at least three counters for Kresh.

Putrefy is an excellent, flexible removal spell. Artifacts are quite popular in commander, so you almost always have something to hit. Terminate is also recommended.

Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are essential ramp in a tri-colored decklist with a higher curve general. Especially good since you're running a lot of basics; you're going to want to ensure your mana fixing.

Eternal Witness is more pricey than any of the previous cards, but it's the single most-played green spell in EDH according to edhrec, and for good reason. Recurring ANYTHING from the 'yard is insanely powerful.

Dictate of Erebos is absolutely silly. You can hold it up in your hand with flash to create some really unfavorable combat situations, and with a sacrifice outlet, you can sometimes "lock" your opponents out from playing creatures. Butcher of Malakir is similar, but on an aggressive body.

Lightning Greaves is useful alongside your Boots to protect your commander. Without any keyword abilities, Kresh is more fragile than he looks.

If you have the resources ($$$), Sheoldred, Whispering One is an absolute bomb, and does exactly what this deck wants to do. Bring things back to be killed again, and slaughter the oppposition. Also a great beatstick.

Lastly, Acidic Slime is powerful removal on a creature that provides great defense with deathtouch.

Happy brewing!

Yahenni is a good candidate for a budget deck. Some thoughts.

Gift of Orzhova counts as both black and white, so its out of your color identity (unless your group has house rules about hybrid cards).

30 lands is very, very low. Your 6cc and up cards are going to have a huge problem being cast reliably. Your mana acceleration isn't strong enough to make up for it with only two sources, one of which costs 6 itself. Several more lands and even basic things like Mind Stone, Charcoal Diamond, and Fellwar Stone will make a huge improvement.

Fleshbag Marauder is Executioner #2. I'd also consider Barter in Blood/Innocent Blood over more costly single target removal like Grisly Spectacle.

Phyrexian Reclamation is a casual edh all-star. You always want to have creatures to keep Yaheeni safe. Palace Siege is really decent too, and Reassembling Skeleton brings itself back to be sac'ed again.

Gracco on Meren’s Resilient Army of Baddies

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/big-meren/?cb=1519990068 this is my Meren list and it is much more efficient than yours with a price that is actually a few dollars cheaper. It is a version with combos that is made to be able to put a presence on the battlefield and sustain longer games as well. It also contains some board control elements that I am surprised your list lacks such as Grave Pact, Merciless Executioner, Slum Reaper, Fleshbag Marauder. and Dictate of Erebos instead of just the single Grave Pact like effect on Butcher of Malakir that you have present.
