Exteez on Hunted Orb - Budget

4 weeks ago

I'd rather use either Drown in Sorrow or Flaying Tendrils instead of Infest. They are both cheap, and has additional scry, or exile ability.

Oh! I was just looking into making this deck too! I really like the idea of a -1/-1 counter deck. Your decklist looks pretty good in my opinion. You have all the greatest -1 counter synergies. One card that I suggest that although does not provide -1 counters but can whipe a board if an opponent is not careful is Screams from Within. Just as a general suggestion, since most of your opponent's creatures are going to weakened, sometimes a Infest will be as strong as a Damnation. Another thing, since you are killing so many creatures, cards like Harvester of Souls that take advantage of creature deaths can be helpful. Also you can take advantage of killing opponent creatures with some graveyard shenanigans like Gruesome Encore and use them to your benefit.Jeez these suggestions are all black, if there is one thing, I wish there were more red cards that work in this type of deck. But I'm stumped on red suggestions. Otherwise, your deck looks sweet to me!!!

Greetings! suggest you to play Flaying Tendrils over Infest in your side, since it exiles a lot of annoying recurrent creatures.

And can i ask you why do you not play Victim of the night in a monoblack?

If you're worried about aggressive decks beating you down or deathtouch, Fog Bank is the first thing that comes to mind. It's in your sideboard now but i think it's more than justified being in the main deck. I think though that part of the reason you are having trouble with those things though is you don't have too many ways to deal with a creature if it does resolve. I would try to add some more removal. Go for the Throat, Hero's Downfall etc can buy you some time to get going. If the issue is more of a swarm, in your sideboard you can put in sweepers like Languish, Crux of Fate, Infest to slow them down.

I also agree with your assessment about comes into play tapped lands. Generally comes int play tapped (CIPT) lands have some sort of added bonus to make you want to play them over a basic land, but the problem with them is if you have a hand with too many it can slow you down. Provided you only have a few it's usually not too much of an issue. Having too many CIPT lands can slow you down by a turn or prevent you from casting a creature and still being able to hold up a counter compared to a normal island. Especially since you are worried about faster decks, i think you should take some out.

Also Mind Grind is fun if you can get your hands on a copy.

Zombie Tribal in nem Mono-B reanimator deck = oldie but goldie.

Crypt Ghast - Kein Zombie, muss er aber auch nicht sein. Macht aber Mana und kann die Blood-Bond combo triggern

Cryptbreaker - Du hast, das finde ich zumindest, viel zu wenig draw.

Gisa, Ghoulcaller - Dein Commander kann das Spiel beenden, Gisa bringt das Spiel ins Rollen.

Zulaport Cutthroat - Find ich besser als den Artist, aber warum nicht beide?

Zombie Apocalypse

Prinziepiell sieht das Deck lustig aus. Kreaturen haben es in unserer Meta aber immer schwerer, ein Infest reicht aus und du fngst von vorn an. Da du hier ganz klar Combo spielst, ist das vielleicht nicht ganz so wichtig, aber such doch Wege auch sicher durchzukriegen, was liegen muss. Ich empfehle da ganz klar den Schritt zu Dimir, Gisa and Geralf bernehmen hier alle Aufgaben, bringen das Spiel zum laufen UND halten es am laufen. Hinzu kommen control, draw und Dinge wie Rooftop Storm, Havengul Lich, Undead Alchemist und Lich Lord of Unx.

I really like this kind of deck, +1 by me.Did you consider something like Drown in Sorrow, Infest, Yahenni's Expertise or even Languish as a pseudo sweeper against aggro decks with some fast, but small creatures?

Thanks for commenting!

I think you've got the right idea for black to be the budget splash (The original idea was grixis, so I'll swap red into the upgrade tab instead) as such I've swapped out what was there for what there is now, I think Duress can be a sideboard card tacked on in game 2 should it be needed. Building this deck on a budget was more for other people then myself, so I have no problem raising it another $10 or so. (Flaying Tendrils is just better then Infest) I did get that Scrying would help my opponent, but I figured getting to Shared Fate was more important then what came after it, but with a tutor I think it'll be alright.

I think you should be splashing black instead of red. You're only using red for creature interaction and a marginal amount of filtering. Black does both of those things better and you also get access to hand disruption, which is absolutely incredible before you drop a shared fate to ensure they have no way to stop it, and you won't care about your opponents having hand disruption once the shared fate sticks.

Should be playing Fatal Push and Dismember and stuff to deal with creatures. Play Inquisition of Kozilek instead of Peek, which doesn't really do anything. You'll definitely want another though. You can probably get away with Duress and/or Despise over Thoughtseize or Inquisition I guess if you're trying to stay within budget. Maybe Infest if you want a sweeper effect, Night's Whisper instead of Looting, Brainspoil as a tutor for Shared Fate. The upside to black is just so much higher.

You even get way better sideboard options. More hand disruption, more sweepers, more kill spells. Whatever's the best in the matchup. If you still want a LD spell, you have Rain of Tears. If you want a fog against hyper aggro decks, Darkness. You don't have a ton for artifacts and stuff, but a couple copies of Echoing Truth and hand disruption should get the job done.

On a seperate note, I wouldn't play Dissolve or any scry lands. Scrying is bad. Not sure if you've made the connection, but you still have your own library with a shared fate. You draw from your opponents, but you get to scry for your own. That means your giving your opponent access to screwing with your draws, which is awful. Just play Drowned Catacomb or River of Tears or Darkslick Shores or something for fixing. I would recommend playing Deltas and Watery Graves since it's just the best thing you can be doing, but thats fine if it's out of your budget. Deltas also give revolt for fatal push.

This is all just a suggestion, but I really hope you're seeing all of my points here. Black just supports what you're doing so well
