Hey, I was looking this deck over again, and I noticed that you could really improve the consistency here. You're leaning really heavily on black for removal, (you need to fix your land base to accommodate this, getting rid of some forests or so) and you have a lot of instances when you only have 1-2 removal spells of a certain kind. I'd suggest taking out the 1 Eliminate for a 3rd Murderous Cut, perhaps sideboarding Broken Bond, adding in a 3rd copy of Duress and a second copy of Dreadbore for that.

To help out your combo with Hazoret the Fervent + Rotting Regisaur, you may want to add in some more Cathartic Reunions. And, if, during our m21 draft, you pull a Grim Tutor, that would help you greatly. I'd also be willing to trade for it, just saying.

Hi Osbert!

Thanks for the tips! I have been thinking about Ghostly Flicker, do you think its better than Spellskite? or would you recommend cutting something else?

I get what your saying about the Faerie Artisans, I will keep it in the maybe board and keep an eye on the amount of ETB triggers my opponents play, if I can play magic again...

I will add Neoform, like you said Birthing Pod is amazing in this deck! As for Eldritch Evolution I think this is to expensive as I've played this in an earlier version of the deck.

Equilibrium is very good indeed, but to be honest to oppressive. I think I'll have to pass up on playing this card, just because of my history with stacks like cards in the past (and the reaction of the playgroup).

I'm thinking of adding Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Grim Tutor, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Oko, Thief of Crowns and Teferi, Master of Time. What do you think of these, and would you add them?

Thanks again for the help!!

Being in black and green and using a secret commander, I am surprised to see you using very little tutors. I would highly recommend the following (a mix of budget friendly and more expensive tutors depending on what you're going for): Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Beseech the Queen, Grim Tutor (thank goodness for that recent reprint), Worldly Tutor, Birthing Pod, Eldritch Evolution, and Fauna Shaman. Gamble might be worth a look as well. Also, you have two Explosive Vegetations in your decklist.

abierto, Grim Tutor seems like an upgrade over Homing Sliver. It's nice to have a tutor on a body, but for as long as i've owned this deck, i've never actually used Homing Sliver's body. That sounds alot weirder than it did in my head. But yeah, I've never been interested in Homing Sliver's body - only it's ability. Grim Tutor on the other hand can get me any card in my deck for an adjustment in the CMC (from to ). I think the benefit outweighs the cost - and I will happily report in on my findings after thorough experimentation!

Oh, and in regards to Krosan Grip - you're correct. On occassion I do face a General Tazri Food Chain deck - (the commander could have changed now, as COVID has given people tons of time to brew). But i'll keep Nature's Claim in the back of mind as my meta will likely be shifting considerably in the near future.

Have you thought about Grim Tutor? It is a great way to make sure you have your combo pieces in hand when you need them.

To give you the long version as short as possible

When a set is still in print, new supply is still entering the market. Seeing as Core21 is still a very new set, and still in print, the value of the card will continue to decrease in the short term. However, the card will likely gain value after the initial dip downwards as the supply begins to dry up. This is the trend for almost every money card released in any new set, with the exception of tournament staple cards (and usually lands). Alternate and fancy art does make things a bit different but the same idea. More showcase Grim Tutor's are going to get into player hands and onto the market in the following months, so the price will decrease unless there is a surge of demand (tournament use, or more likely, EDH use).

My personal take? Sell it now or sell it 5 years down the road. Waiting any amount of time over a week to move this card will probably have negative impact on the price. If you wait over a week, wait 5 years. It is unlikely to be picked up as a tournament card for standard/modern to drive short term price, and legacy/vintage certainly don't want the card. EDH boys and collectors are going to be the largest price driver for Grim Tutor, and time will help both of those audiences develop demand for the card. Seeing as this is a chase rare, I find future reprints unlikely, at least in a window of 5-10 years.

Hey, I love your deck! A few notes which might make this deck play a little smoother.

  • Blighted Agent - I'd recommend that you take this card out. This is a Human Rouge, which means that you can't mutate onto this like you probably want to.

  • Diabolic Tutor - I'd recommend that you take this card out. If you were trying to go for a budget tutor effect, Grim Tutor is being reprinted in M21, and is sure to be cheaper in this coming set. That being said, a better alternative might be Uncage the Menagerie which is more creature focused, or some of the Transmute effects like Dimir House Guard or Dimir Infiltrator which tutor for a specific CMC

  • Deadly Tempest - I'd recommend that you take this card out. It seems that as a creature focused deck, you are almost always going to be suffering the most from this board wipe. Other alternatives would be Black Sun's Zenith or just a good ol' fashioned Damnation

  • Migration Path - I'd recommend that you take this card out. 4 mana to put 2 basics onto the field just isn't that good unfortunately. I'd recommend changing this out for a 2 mana Rampant Growth or a 3 mana Cultivate which is being reprinted in M21. In addition to changing Migration Path to one of those options, I would add a Traverse the Outlands. Your commander guarantees that this is a 5 mana 6 land ramp. I'd probably take out Villainous Wealth to make room for this change.

I think that is a good start! I actually have a Volrath, the Shapestealer commander deck which seems to have a lot of similar themes which is where I am getting inspiration from. Hope you enjoy!
