Necroskitter Discussion

Nice deck mate! Perhaps Grim Affliction instead of Crumbling Ashes? It's higher on the curve yes, but profits your Necroskitter, Midnight Banshee and Scavenging Ooze!

+1 from me

Oblivion Strike could be an alternative to Final Reward

Nest of Scarabs and Blowfly Infestation is potentially an infinite combo.

Necroskitter is super powerful with a -1/-1 counter deck

Coat with Venom, Touch of Moonglove and Virulent Swipe are neat combat tricks that give deathtouch and are much better than Serpent's Gift

''Also known as wedding'' +1 from me

Rogue's Passage might help you get in with you commander and get some spoils, also perhaps Whispersilk Cloak for added protection.

For long games (because of it's high cmc) you might like Rise of the Dark Realms. Lilliana could also make quite a good wife, Liliana, Death Wielder. She works well with Necroskitter and Midnight Banshee, but her ult only affect your graveyard... maybe Liliana Vess?

Have a nice day.

Necroskitter makes for a really strong Black Sun's Zenith.

Can't believe I missed Mentor of the Meek for card draw in my Doran deck. Apparently I haven't updated my deck for a while now. My deck focuses on punishing creatures based on their power. But I have a few ideas to run by you, use them as you wish:

Abzan Beastmaster: card draw

Eidolon of Rhetoric: can neuter some decks and has a nice body to boot.

Guiltfeeder: Possible evasion and can hit for 4 with Doran out. Added damage is better the longer the game goes on.

Kami of Old Stone: I don't care for vanilla critters but this one was too good to pass up

Marble Titan: another Meekstone v2.0

Necroskitter: steals opponent's critters and plays nicely with Obelisk Spider and his infect friends Priests of Norn and Tangle Angler.

Priests of Norn/Tangle Angler: See above, Also can be finishers with cards like Tower Defense ect.

Raving Dead: testing this out. Can be brutal with cards like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Behind the Scenes or after a wrath effect that targets higher powered critters. It's a Quietus Spike with legs.

Sun Titan: recursion

Tree of Redemption: huge with Assault Formation or a last ditch life saver.

Noetic Scales: currently testing but probably the first thing to be cut.

Crackdown, Retribution of the Meek, Wave of Reckoning: all higher power critter punishing cards

My deck if you want more ideas:

Doran's Spring: 'Tis the Season of Big Butts

I'd start by narrowing down to either killing the opponent's creatures or your own creatures. Doing so will give you a more streamlined gameplan. The value of each strategy will depend on your meta-- a lot of midrange and zoo decks will favor the former strategy while a lot of burn and control will favor the latter.

For killing your opponent's stuff, I like the inclusion of The Scorpion God, although you can't actually cast him at the moment. Cards like Necroskitter and Black Sun's Zenith caqn help you capitalize on the counters.

For killing your own stuff, I'd try to find cheaper ways to gain value. Grim Haruspex and Grave Pact are faster than Harvester of Souls and Butcher of Malakir. I'd also consider Bloodsoaked Champion and Bloodghast as replacements for Gravecrawler since you don't have many zombies now. One of my favorite sac outlets is Viscera Seer for a deck like this.

Love the theme dude, very flavorful +1. Still I would try to utilize your commanders ability to a point that it gives you a big advantage.

For example:

Even though these cards are less flavorful, they give your commander more purpose and it also creates a secondary theme to the deck.

I would also go more with a control set up for this deck but that's a matter of opinion I guess. I would definitely run these:

Last note, proliferate is really good with your commander, you can abuse it easily with the cards I've enlisted above.

Still love your theme and the concept, this is only how I would tweak the deck.

Hmm, good question. I'd drop Midnight Banshee, its fun, but its REALLY slow. Otherwise, I'd recommend dropping either a Fume Spitter or a Skinrender. I would keep both Necroskitters, they're really good, especially with Crumbling Ashes in play.
