Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest Discussion

orzhov_is_relatively_okay819 on Sidisi, Meren and Ezuri Oh My......

Before I start, just want to say this looks like a cool deck. It looks pretty promising.

First of all, 41 lands is a bit too many. Depending on the deck, the normal recommended amount is 36-39. Your deck is fairly low-cost, so I would recommend 37 or 38.

Reap is super situational and you shouldn't play it unless you know there's a big presence of black in your playgroup.

Take out Seedtime unless you're playing against a counterspell deck. It barely ever actually works.

Take out Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest. It's just not a good card, even in a deck like this. I have a Meren deck and Mazirek never had any impact.

Take out Ghoultree. By the time you have enough creatures in your graveyard to play it cheaper, it won't matter as much. Also, a 10/10 vanilla isn't really the best play considering all the crazy shenanigans you can start up with this deck.

I recommend taking out Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. Although it's a fine card, if you're looking to cut cards Jarad just doesn't perform as well as most others.

I would take out Kiora's Follower because I don't really see enough cards in the deck where it helps that much.

Take out Phyrexian Plaguelord. It's just a bad card.

I would take out Rot Farm Skeleton because it's a bit too expensive to work as pillow fort, and there are better ways to fill your graveyard.

Take out Scourge of Nel Toth. It doesn't really have any impact in a commander game.

Viridian Zealot is too expensive and hard to cast in a 3-color deck. If you like the idea of it, at least replace it with Caustic Caterpillar.

Take out Zameck Guildmage. It doesn't have enough synergy with the deck.

Take out Thornbite Staff. Once again, it's just a bad card. It costs an absurd amount of mana to do anything useful with it.

This is just my opinion, so feel free to take it with a grain of salt. Have fun!

In my opinion I think you should reconsider adding Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest as it also works to combo off a creature with Persist + Sac outlet.

It's pretty much the same as Mikaeus, but that way you can have 2 creatures that you can use with that combo instead of just Mikaeus.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest seems like it could be a good additional combo piece.

Black Market, Awakening Zone, Pawn of Ulamog, Catacomb Sifter, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar would all work well with your sac engine. Currently, it seems you have a huge number of ways to sac things, but not that many things to sac.
It That Betrays, while powerful, seems a little to expensive for this deck. You lack ways to cheat it into play, and you don't have enough ramp to cast it reliably.
There are many powerful staple cards that your list is missing, like Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Cabal Coffers, Tooth and Nail, Eldritch Evolution and fetchlands. Are those not included by choice?

yo my homie i found some stuff last night. just wanted to throw them out there so i didnt forget.Bloodspore Thrinax this guy looked solid, Broodmate Dragon 4/4 tokens are where it's at. Xenagos, the Reveler looks to be an improved version of Nissa, Vital Force but like i said i have that one already. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest i like the sound of each creature. Death's Presence. Primal Vigor im sure you saw, probably a little too pricey for what we're goin for. Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper 3/1's would be pretty gnarly. This one out of the new set looks okay Vizier of the Menagerie not bad.. maybe a random heavy hitter Siege Behemoth pretty nasty.

For gruul I would recommend Omnath, Locus of Rage landfall. You can have big bursts with cards that do stuff when your creatures enter the battlefield and it gets out of control quick. There are other big creature beatdown ones that also work

For Golgari there are lots of good ones like Meren of Clan Nel Toth or Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest which come in the pre con. The Gitrog Monster is also a fun one but a little hard to pilot.

Also for Naya I would recommend Samut, Voice of Dissent as haste to all your creatures is super good.

I don't know the other colors as well but Kresh seems fun in Jund

mad_hatter_md01, are you offering to make a donation? (;

Top four changes would be Bloodspore Thrinax, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan. Those are the ones that would really oil the gears in this deck. They'd probably go in for things like Vein Drinker and Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Curse of Stalked Prey, Skirsdag Cultist, and so forth.

Past that, it's really up to you. Doubling Season, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Atarka's Command, Damnation, Sarkhan Vol...just whatever floats your boat. They wouldn't be in my ideal deck, necessarily, but you can certainly find ways to spend money on a counters-and-tokens-and-reanimation build.

Hope that helps answer your question. Let me know if I can clarify. Cheers!
