Sweet build, you've earned yourself a +1 from me. I'm always impressed when people can build functioning EDH decks with colorless generals. One quick suggestion though: as your commander does have a cmc of 12, and the deck's average cmc is an inordinately high 5.38. As such, you may want to consider running more lands than the relatively low total of 34, as well as possibly running more mana rocks such as Mind Stone and/or Fractured Powerstone to help the deck run more smoothly. Burnished Hart is also decently strong, as are dorks such as Hedron Crawler, Manakin and its evil twin, Millikin. You might benefit from replacing some higher costed cards that don't necessarily impact the game in as meaningful a way with the above relatively low cmc ramp suggestions. Good luck friend!

I get your point, but cutting 3 cards shouldn't affect you effectivity to much, with more ramp you also have more mana, which means you can activate grenzo more often. if you dont want to play the rocks, you should atleast consider: Iron Myr, Leaden Myr, Plague Myr or Manakin/Millikin.

Paeldroth on Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenies - Subira EDH

2 months ago

Made some adjustments. Removed Cryptic Trilobite, Akki Underminer, and Chandra's Pyreling. Moved Irencrag Feat and Ruthless Invasion to the maybeboard, and added War Cadence and Magus of the Moon to it as well. Added Bomat Courier, Bag of Holding, Flameblade Adept, Iron Myr, Manakin, and Priest of Urabrask to the main desk.

Ultimately Brash Taunter requires a certain playstyle that I don't think Subira wants. It is an excellent card for a deck like Torbran, Thane of Red Fell but Subira needs that 5 mana to play 3 other cards instead of one that requires some attention.

Sapphire Medallion is honestly not needed, same with Blue Sun's Zenith and High Tide. Vedalken Engineer, Manakin, Hedron Archive, and Hedron Crawler are unneeded. I would throw in some artifact tutors that sac artifacts that you control like Master Transmuter, Arcum Dagsson, Fabricate and Tolaria West. Urza's Bauble, Foresight, and Manipulate Fate are very good with Emry for getting off a combo win.

Leaden Myr in place of Manakin, pretty much a strict upgrade.

Hey, nice budget version of Yawgmoth.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Phyrexian Reclamation to keep recurring Gray can be another budget win condition. Yawgmoth can be an enabler for Gray + Reclamation because he can keep sacing Gray. Gray is a very good budget card for mono black in multiplayer Commander where you'll have many opponents. Reclamation's repeatable recursion can be helpful with the strategy of sacing creatures and can recur at instant speed. Gray and Reclamation could replace Cordial Vampire and Palace Siege.

Skirsdag High Priest is an underrated budget card in multiplayer Commander. Repeatable morbid can give you a lot of value, good with token strategies. Tap 1/1 tokens to make 5/5 flying beaters. Yawgmoth can be an enabler to activate morbid at instant speed. The nice thing about morbid in multiplayer Commander is it can be activated when any creature dies which includes an opponents creature on any turn. Priest could replace Manakin.

Dark Ritual is a staple card for black. Plaguecrafter is excellent in multiplayer Commander. With 30x Swamps Mutilate has great scalability. Victimize is powerful budget reanimation. These cards could replace Vona's Hunger, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Songs of the Damned, Never/Return.

Everflowing Chalice and Prismatic Lens could replace Corrupted Grafstone and Manalith. You don't need all mana rocks to make black mana since you have 30x Swamps. Black mana shouldn't be a problem, mana rocks just need to make mana for ramp and that mana is fine as colorless. Chalice can be proliferated which is a big bonus.

Good luck with your deck.
