Morbid Curiosity Discussion

Hey dude I love this deck. Definitely a +1 from me! It's refreshing to see a dragon deck that's not 5 colors. Recursion is one of my favorite mechanics in Magic. I'm a very seasoned Magic player and I can't express to you how much I love Scroll Rack It would be a great addition. 2 other cards for draw that I absolutely love and that I think are completely underated are Morbid Curiosity and Sanguimancy Also for another way to blink your commander, I'd recommend Conjurer's Closet Last card that I want to mention that is neat, but maybe not a necessary include is Cryptic Gateway

Normally you'd be right, but because Licia, Sanguine Tribune is a CMC 8 creature, Morbid Curiosity draws us 8 cards off 3 mana compared to spells like Night's Whisper . This isn't a voltron strategy deck so I don't mind sacrificing Licia as she works more like a utility commander in this deck and it's easy to get her back on the field anyway.

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.
