C'mon, Wrath me brew!
Oh man! I was looking at building a token Kresh the Bloodbraided and I think this has provided me with some of the missing win-cons and synergies for interaction. Fantastic!
I agree with Heisenbrain, though many of those will be putting taking it higher than you guys are aiming for with the budget aspect. I'll definitely be including some free sacs like Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder and Bloodflow Connoisseur, maybe Bloodthrone Vampire. These will be especially good for turning Vicious Shadows into a turn 7 game ender. I've Altar of Dementia already in there as well a few other mill tactics.
Thanks for this, commandersbrew, and for the great episode with some helpful insights on removals/wraths!

My suggestions for cuts are plentiful. However, Kresh the Bloodbraided comes to mind immediately. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan would be good, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is great, Rockslide Elemental is similar to Kresh, Taurean Mauler is another Managorger, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Malakir Cullblade, with even more similarities to Kresh, may fit well with your flavor. Curse of Stalked Prey could help, alongside Curse of Predation, some mana rocks would do you good, Apocalypse Hydra, and many other hydras would be decent finishers, Kalonian Hydra takes the cake though. Armorcraft Judge is nice, along with Inspiring Call, Pelt Collector and Experiment One, Champion of Lambholt, maybe Heroes' Bane, Ravenous Slime, Rubblebelt Raiders, Deus of Calamity, Scute Mob, Sporeback Troll, Tuskguard Captain, Vinelasher Kudzu, Soul's Majesty, Falkenrath Exterminator, and Stromkirk Noble?
So that's a few suggestions. Want me to propose cuts as well?

goldlion, thanks for the compliment! Kresh the Bloodbraided has been on my to-do list for a long time now, he always seemed like he'd be fun to pilot. Let me know how your Marchesa, the Black Rose deck turns out, I'm always interested in seeing other folks' builds.
I've been on the fence about Grave Betrayal for a while now. The effect is absolutely stellar, and it certainly would fit the theme of the deck. But the steep cost of 7 CMC has me wondering if it would be worth the mana. The only cards in the deck that are above 6 CMC are Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Expropriate, and Insurrection. I'm not even too sure about Razaketh, the Foulblooded's inclusion, since it still takes me another turn to play the Expropriate or Insurrection that I'd find from his ability. If I end up cutting Razaketh, the Foulblooded, I'll most likely put Grave Betrayal in there, since it is such a rockin' card. I just like Razaketh, the Foulblooded because he's a sac outlet and a life drain, so I can use him to ensure Marchesa, the Black Rose's Dethrone ability triggers.
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll definitely have to put some thought into swapping something out for Grave Betrayal.
PS: Reef Worm has been an absolute all-star in this deck. I would fully encourage its inclusion in just about any Marchesa, the Black Rose deck. Once I have a consistent way of putting +1/+1 counters on it, it gets outta control pretty quickly.
Thanks again for the thoughts and suggestion!

This is a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck containing a sick and zany strategy-OP.

I think you need an Eternal Scourge for this deck.
AH HA! I finally see figured out what this deck is really needing. More punch.
Specifically, this deck should be maximizing the 'creature enters the battlefield' effects.
You are creature one or more token copies of a creature.
Those creatures should not just sit there looking at you like an idiot. Make those token work.
I know that the token come into play tapped and attacking, but by using the ETB triggers those tokens will be doing double duty.
Another thing I noticed while looking at what other people are doing with this deck is the use of +1/+1 counters to power things.
Not sure if that is a direction this deck need to go, so I'm not going to use that too much.
With that new idea in mind, lets look at some swaps.
OUT: Budoka Gardener, Charnelhoard Wurm, Emissary of Grudges, Indulgent Tormentor, Rubblehulk, Scute Mob, Scuttling Doom Engine, Seedborn Muse, Zendikar Incarnate
Not sure about: Loyal Apprentice, Loyal Guardian, Loyal Subordinate, Rampaging Baloths
IN, with no particualr order:
(I'm going to list more cards than we take out so that you have some options to consider.)
Wood Elves, note that the Forest does not have to be a basic Forest. We can fecth a dual or shock land.
Eternal Witness, to get back any other card.
Greenwarden of Murasa, another option for card recursion.
Solemn Simulacrum, land fetch and card draw ine one.
Broodmate Dragon, because dragons.
Garna, the Bloodflame, for more graveyard recursion.
Fleshbag Marauder and/or, Merciless Executioner to help control the board. We can use the sac
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, fattie with life draining ability.
Mindslicer, so that we can make people's lives suck.
Pilgrim's Eye, land search and flying chump blocker. the poor man's Solemn Simulacrum
Hoarding Dragon, because it never hurts to get useful artifacts.
Netherborn Phalanx, this one has always been good to me in group games. Really punishes the token player.
Puppeteer Clique, so that we can eat and exile opponenet's creatures.
Dire Fleet Daredevil, why not cast other people's spells?
Balustrade Spy, screw your deck.
Avalanche Riders, screw your land.
Sadistic Hypnotist, screw your hand.
Entomber Exarch, give us some nice options. It is a bit weak, but useful and cheap.
Bogardan Hellkite, becuase damage is almost always good. But I'm not sure about the mana cost on this one.
Molten Primordial, let's use our sacrifice outlets on other peoples stuff.
Viscera Seer, so that we can filter the top deck when we sacrifice creatures.
Hornet Queen, tokens making tokens, now with deathtouch.
Feldon of the Third Path, create tokens of creatures that don't get exiled.
Kresh the Bloodbraided or Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper as alternate commanders and good creatures.
Not creatues but need to be in the deck:
Warstorm Surge, let's turn each token into direct damage in addition to it's ETB.
Path of Discovery, why not explore the deck?
Evolutionary Leap, I'm not sure about this one, I like the ability to fetch more creatues from the deck, but we may need more dicard outlets to really make this work for use.
Goblin Bombardment, cheap to cast, multiple uses, may help finish off the last opponent.
So, let me know what you think.
Great. Thanks. Now after helping you with this deck, I'm going to have to finish my jund deck. I'll see if I can get my list up in a couple of days.

Hey, if you're looking for big beaters, you can look at eldrazis with Artisan of Kozilek.. In jund, you can have Kresh the Bloodbraided, Butcher of Malakir, Corpsejack Menace works with your commander and kresh.. Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar Protean Hulk, Combustible Gearhulk Verdurous Gearhulk Noxious Gearhulk.. Hornet Queen can make your ennemies attack into 1/1 deathtouch which is fun There's a lot of dragons stuff such as Hellkite Overlord, Hellkite Tyrant, Bogardan Hellkite Dragonlord Atarka..
For big green stuff and ramp, you can look at my
SCORE: 1 | 37 VIEWS
Maybe some of those cards cost a lil' bit over 5$, i'm not sure on some prices, but I'll look for cards that benefits always having to attack or always be attacked from now on, and I might get back to you ! Good luck on your deck, Thantis seems really fun !

May i recommend adding Kresh the Bloodbraided? He will gain power when thantis kills a creature and a great ammount of power when thantis herself dies.
