Morbid Curiosity Discussion

Caltrops with Sydri, Galvanic Genius 's second ability could be a lot of fun though you do have to be careful because your own creatures will get pinged when they attack.

Commander's Sphere is an upgrade over Manalith as your commander can recycle the Sphere for a slow draw engine. Provides some redundancy with the Strix.

For other sac effects you could look at Morbid Curiosity , Costly Plunder , Reprocess , Reshape , and Syndicate Trafficker

Another artifact creature that begs to be recurred is Meteor Golem

And Aminatou, the Fateshifter is another blink effect on stick to keep you commander getting value from artifacts in the graveyard or just blinking ones in play.

Morbid Curiosity is a decent card, it's a good thing to sacrifice Frogmite for.

I'll have to consider Metalwork Colossus.

Thanks for checking out my Grim-Grin deck.

A couple cards that are nice for getting more creatures in their graveyard to abuse Scarab God are Geralf's Mindcrusher and Geth, Lord of the Vault

Lord of the Undead can be solid to get your creatures back. Especially those with ETC effects. Dreamborn Muse or Graveborn Muse are possibilities, although you have to be careful with graveborn.

Serum Visions looks like a pretty weak card for Commander. Basically you are paying 1 to scry 2 since the draw just replaces the serum visions you cast. Ambition's Cost, Morbid Curiosity, Promise of Power, or Ancient Craving are better for one off card draw.

Cryptbreaker could be fantastic in this deck if you can keep it alive. Greed, Grim Haruspex, and Rhystic Study are solid repeatable draw for Commander.

Hope some of these suggestions are useful. Good Luck!

btw, Morbid Curiosity would be my suggestion of choice. On average i draw like 3-4 cards off it. In dire situations in my Marionette Master deck i'd sacrifice Metalwork Colossus to draw 11 cards. Even if i have to discard a few afterward you definitely get whatever card you were looking for, plus in that deck the colossus works towards the Marionette Master win-con when you pull it from the graveyard.

I haven't played Standard in well over a year, but I'll do my best:

  • If you're concerned with Approach, more hand disruption might help, as well as more early plays to get some extra damage in. 1-2 copies of Unburden could be useful, and Miasmic Mummy pulls double duty
  • Against aggro, more early plays will help. I recommend Miasmic Mummy again since it can block an early creature and pre-emptively stop a future play. I also recommend upping the count of Fatal Push
  • Adding more cheap creatures also provides more ammo for Whisper, Blood Liturgist if you decide you want to have another copy of her for more consistency
  • Settle the Score doesn't do enough to help your plan to justify how slow it is. Replace it with more copies of Fatal Push and/or Vraska's Contempt
  • Gilded Lotus doesn't seem to help your plan at all. I think you'd be much better off replacing them with more Swamps. That will help you hit your land drops more consistently and makes Cabal Stronghold slightly better
  • Replace Soul Salvage with Wander in Death as a straight upgrade, just in case you get into a situation where you need some other card more than the normal effect
  • Taking out The Eldest Reborn and Duress will weaken your options against Teferi decks and other control decks, so consider that issue before doing it
  • Morbid Curiosity and Fortuitous Find don't do anything for you. Take them out of the sideboard
  • Is there a specific deck that makes you want to include Dispossess in the board? If not, consider taking it out
