Fresh Meat Discussion
1 week ago
This deck has performed very well, having never come below 2nd in any of the sessions I've played it in.The most noticeable downside to this deck so far is running out of gas quickly, more card draw needs to be added. Cards like Fecundity, Pirate's Pillage, Rishkar's Expertise, Life's Legacy, Momentous Fall and Greater Good are all ideas I've had but all have their own flaws in this deck. Another area of improvement would be recovering after a board wipe, the most obvious candidate for this would be Fresh Meat. Tilonalli's Summoner was another card that caught my eye as a quick way of recovering board state, Brass's Bounty was also a card that caught my attention as an include.
I was contemplating the idea of shifting away from the mass tokens and running more mana doubling abilities like Mana Flare and Heartbeat of Spring while adding cards like Banefire along with Furnace of Rathesque abilities in order to try and maximize damage with the limited amount of cards I draw. This package would replace the majority of the token generators as well as cards like Impact Tremors, Goblin Bombardment, Battle Hymn etc..

Great choice on commander. I don't see much in the way of card draw, so I would recommend Deathreap Ritual, Marchesa's Decree, and Phyrexian Arena for sure and possibly Dark Tutelage if you can drop your average cmc. Dauthi Embrace would be another way to give your commander unblockable, and can be use politically on your opponents too. Spidersilk Armor can give your team reach and Quest for Renewal gives you blockers. I'd swap out Fresh Meat for Ezuri's Predation as EP is a board wipe.
Serrated arrows under performs. Second harvest, vhati, cord of calling, natural order, and primal vigor I would cut because of situational use, cost, and vigor can benefit your opponents.

I would definitely add Phyrexian Processor, it is great in this deck!
You won't want to be casting your commander a bunch of times over, so some protection like Lightning Greaves would be good. (It will also let you use the populate the turn you play her).
Fresh Meat seems pretty good if someone clears your board, because since the tokens technically entered the graveyard before being exiled, you can rebuild.
The new card Polyraptor seems crazy in this deck, because the tokens have the copy ability as well.
Two words: Storm Herd. If you play this card, especially with you commander out, you pretty much win.
Devout Invocation lets you gain a LOT of life and get some creatures that can survive a hit.
Hour of Reckoning can be a board clear if someone gets out of control or just a finisher to attack without blockers.
Emmara Tandris is ok, but the mana cost is just too high to be an effective card.
Single creature buffs are generally ineffective in a go wide deck, so Unflinching Courage is not very good here.
Fated Intervention costs to much for what it does.
Healer of the Pride and Essence Warden don't do much but gain life, which generally isn't too good because they don't advance your board at all. You will have quite a lot of life from you commander if you do it right, so the additional lifegain doesn't do too much.
Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a good card, but his token generation is not very effective.

manimuu, sweet list.
Have you tested with Tendershoot Dryad from RIX yet?
In terms of fishing your altar back out of the gave, Noxious Revival, Reclaim, and Regrowth might be helpful. You could also add Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and Dimir Machinations, to tutor for the altar. The new RIX card Mastermind's Acquisition can also be a second Diabolic Tutor.

Thank you very much chadsansing!
To be honest, I have not tested your recommendations yet. I recently made the choice to use more token generators in the deck, to assure enough sacrifice targets. So I still have to playtest a lot before adding a (or even buy a) Doubling Season, until then a Parallel Lives will do just fine, same goes for Second Harvest.
Phyrexian Reclamation is a great card suggestion, because I would like to have some cards back in my hand when I want to, and not only in my 'end-step'. I'm a bit worried about the additional 2 life activation cost. I have been avoiding Vampiric Rites beacause I dont like to pay for my sac-engine's, but it does give me card draw. So those will require some testing.
I know Birthing Pod is a good card, but I just really dont like it. Fecundity will give my opponents card draw, and because i'm not the only grave-abusing deck in my meta i'm not gonna run this card, obviously.
Overall thanks for your suggestions, gives me stuff to think about. And material to keep tweaking my deck. Top problem for me though; I have no clue what to cut form the deck to start testing.

I love graveyard lists - nice job!
I'm working on a similar list at Mazirek Counters.
Have you tested with Doubling Season or Parallel Lives? I also like Phyrexian Reclamation and Vampiric Rites as a wombo. Birthing Pod might be helpful for fishing out a Mycoloth + value sac effects. Fecundity is not bad for digging, either.
