Kindred Dominance Discussion
1 day ago
Oh man, okay so I can kind of see your plight. Off the bat you can take out Land Tax , trhat won't benefit you much at all in a 5C deck. You can already add in Exploration in replacement for that. Mystic Remora is another great card to add as well as Cryptolith Rite to give all your slivers the same to tap for mana. You can take out all the mana rocks with the exception of Sol Ring and Chromatic Lantern . For those slots you can actually add in the tutors to consistently get your mana fixing or card draw. So Enlightened Tutor / Vampiric Tutor / Demonic Tutor would go in for those rocks that are taken out.
As far as your reactive package, I would take out Kindred Dominance as you are going to be the threat and they should waste resources on trying to take you out not the other way around, so I would actually consider cards like Teferi's Protection or Faith's Reward . If you want a ramp package or card advantage ramp, consider running all the two and certain three drop ramp spells for the color fixing. Nature's Lore , Rampant Growth , Search for Tomorrow , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach are all great here. Tithe is also good as it can color fix for you as well as pull any shocks or duals.
For removal as well there are cheaper alternative options that you can use like Nature's Claim , Path to Exile , Assassin's Trophy , and Fire Covenant . Wargate is also a great tutor that scales throughout the game.
Hope that gives some help!

For lands, Cabal Stronghold doesn't make any sense. You're running 7 Basic Swamps. If you wanted to put in Cabal Coffers with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , that could work, but I doubt you want to put your money there. Cascading Cataracts, Waterveil Cavern, Survivor's Encampment, Shimmering Grotto, Rupture Spire, Guildmage's Forum, and Gateway Plaza should be the next to go. You're running a 2-color deck, so you don't need such bad fixing. I'd also lose Everglades.
Nighthowler is the only really bad creature that I see, although you'll probably want more if you're on the self-mill plan. Triskaidekaphobia and Tree of Perdition are cute. I don't think I would run that, but if you're going to, run Clutch of the Undercity and Dimir House Guard to tutor up the pieces.
Spinal Embrace is a cool card, but it's pretty inefficient. For that kind of mana, you could be running Kindred Dominance , Crux of Fate , Deadly Tempest , Decree of Pain , Extinguish All Hope , or Life's Finale (I would go with this one, given your commander). Cancel is a no-go. Counterspell , Negate , Swan Song , Countersquall , Dissolve , Arcane Denial , Disallow , Sinister Sabotage and Dream Fracture should all be in the deck before Cancel.
Tome of the Guildpact is pretty bad in this deck. If you want rocks, you should be running Sky Diamond , Charcoal Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel , and Talisman of Dominance before you touch that or Darksteel Ingot in a 2-color deck. If you're looking for card draw, Phyrexian Arena , Syphon Mind , Fact or Fiction , Tidings , Sign in Blood , and Night's Whisper are all better.
If you wanna mill, Altar of the Brood , Mesmeric Orb , Dread Summons , Sphinx's Tutelage , Psychic Corrosion , Traumatize , Patient Rebuilding , Memory Erosion , and Whetstone are all more powerful than Millstone (though I do appreciate it's OG status).
If you want to see what other people are playing in their Scarab God decks, I recommend checking out the EDHREC page for him.

This is really cool, I don't think I've ever seen this as a commander!
Judith, the Scourge Diva seems like it could do serious work in this deck.
I hope that this could give you some things to think about!

Finally, you'll want some more explosive ramp and draw. Jet Medallion , Thunderscape Familiar , Herald's Horn can lower your rats' cost, and Slate of Ancestry , Skullclamp , Reforge the Soul , Midnight Reaper , Dark Prophecy , Grim Haruspex , Night's Whisper , Greed , Syphon Mind , Promise of Power ,

Props for not going easy mode with Edgar Markov .
As for suggestions, the best thing I think you could do to improve this deck is to make it more explosive. The way to do that would be to add free sacrifice outlets, along with creatures that provide you multiple bodies.
For sac outlets, Viscera Seer , Indulgent Aristocrat , Bloodthrone Vampire , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Cartel Aristocrat , Blood Bairn , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , Vampire Aristocrat , and Yahenni, Undying Partisan are good vampire options. Sadistic Hypnotist , Dimir House Guard , Spawning Pit , Hidden Stockpile , Mind Slash are also good. What's important is that you can go off all at once. You want to sac a bunch of creatures to grow Elenda and sac her the same turn.
The other challenge you'll want to keep in mind is that Elenda, the Dusk Rose must go to your graveyard to get the trigger. That means If you want to recast her, you'll have to reanimate her or exile her from your graveyard. Bojuka Bog , Relic of Progenitus , Angel of Finality , God-Pharaoh's Gift (and Gate to the Afterlife !), Skeletal Scrying , Rescue from the Underworld , Necromancer's Covenant , Cremate , Seance , Planar Void , Goryo's Vengeance , Postmortem Lunge , Purgatory . Despoiler of Souls , Mistmoon Griffin , Purify the Grave , Offalsnout , Coffin Purge , Drudge Spell , Cryptwailing , Treacherous Vampire , and Consecrate / Consume , Angelic Renewal , Karmic Guide , Reveillark (the prior two being an infinite loop combo), Dread Return , Nim Deathmantle (there are combos with it and Ashnod's Altar , which you also want), Palace Siege , Bloodline Necromancer , Profane Command , Unburial Rites , Faith's Reward , Ever After , Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants , Hell's Caretaker . Apprentice Necromancer , Wake the Dead , Second Sunrise , Infernal Offering , Corpse Dance , Zombify , Resurrection , No Rest for the Wicked , and Footsteps of the Goryo , are all good options.
The final piece of the puzzle is making your sacrifices devastating. Dictate of Erebos , Butcher of Malakir , Grave Pact , Black Market , Harvester of Souls , Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex , Zulaport Cutthroat , Open the Graves , Blade of the Bloodchief , Ogre Slumlord , Athreos, God of Passage , and Dark Prophecy will help with that.

Personally I was going to go Esper to have access to cards like Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts and GAAIV. However, sultai does seem EXTREMELY strong for pertitioners.
Not sure how anyone feels about this, but what about 4 color? We could run Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as commander. Although, it would probably be wiser to run a partner pair. I agree with everyone else here on the cards. Bloodbond March , Thrumming Stone , and Secret Salvage would all be very strong. Since this most likely will be tribal we have access to things like Harsh Mercy , Kindred Dominance , Patriarch's Bidding , etc.
I also second the idea of that EDH group.

Kaya's Wrath is probably a little color-intensive for a budget manabase. I would go with OG Wrath of God or Fumigate if you're looking for the life gain. Kindred Dominance and Kindred Discovery are also both very good, especially if you like tribal decks. I don't see the cycle being reprinted any time soon, and Discovery, especially, is gas. Same logic for Vanquisher's Banner and Path of Ancestry . In terms of long-term value, though, Cyclonic Rift , Chromatic Lantern , and Cabal Coffers are the best investments. Coffers might not be the best in this deck, though. You really want a deck loaded up on fetches and dual swamps or ways to fetch the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth combo if you're not in mono black. Cyclonic Rift is amazing. Whenever I've drawn Mystical Tutor , it's never been incorrect to fetch it, and it's won me quite a few games. If you're going to buy a $20 card, start with that. As for Chromatic Lantern , that is the first card I would pick up. It will be good in any 3+ color deck, and it's only going to go up in price the further we get from Guilds of Ravnica. Same for Smothering Tithe . In any deck not running green, it is is among the best ramp every printed, and it's the second card after Sol Ring to put in any mono-white or Boros deck.
