Necroskitter Discussion

GrandMeekster on Extreme Budget Hapatra 25$

Yeah, in EDH, you can only have cards that correspond with your commander's color identity. It's okay, my buddy used to put Guttural Response in his Kaalia deck but took it out because it had a green mana symbol in the card.

Black Sun's Zenith is pretty budget I think, it's insane in Hapatra. Grafted Exoskeleton is also really good but it might draw hate to that creature or artifact since infect scares people very quickly.

Some other cool cards that is most likely budget:

Necroskitter Lockjaw Snapper Putrefax Noxious Hatchling Withering Hex (you can facilitate this by having lands and other cards that cycle! Just a thought) Blight Sickle

Just some thoughts to get you started. Good Luck!

lagotripha on How The Devil Plays MTG: The Mono-Black Primer

Hi- There are a few cards that deserve honourable mentions from my testing. I've got this big list of cards I've tested and made work, but a lot of it is pure jank. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox The ones below deserve specific mention.

Plunge into Darkness. It pseudo tutors, its a sac outlet, it hates on burn. Its ability to look for a sideboard card is both understated and very strong.

Imp's Mischief is a meta call, but in some metas is devastating. Used to be run a lot to redirect splinter twin, will likely see play when something similar reapears.

Blade of the Bloodchief is a big payoff card for mono-black vampire tribal, as sitting lower to the ground and spamming creatures/removal makes lashwrithe and this a lot stronger.

Oona's Blackguard and Earwig Squad have in the past worked well in bitterblossom lists.

Everlasting Torment is also has a playable if not amazing -1/-1 counter list including Geralf's Messenger Crumbling Ashes and Necroskitter with Black Sun's Zenith.

Dark Prophecy is worth mentioning in that it is unplayable. You have to say it or people will try. Unless its a key combo peice in a Zulaport Cutthroat list, don't bother. Jam a Phyrexian Arena or heck, Underworld Connections instead.

Defense Grid, Storage Matrix and Culling Scales deserve mention as artifacts. They aren't in favour at the moment, but have in the past been devastating tools. Sun Droplet is often a better Dragon's Claw, or in a degenerate meta, copies 5-8.

Soul Spike is a powerful wincon when you can draw your library, which is tricky in mono black, but very possible with Grim Haruspex lists. The lifegain can also offset lifeloss a lot of repeatable 'draw your library' cards often incur.

Gonti's Machinations is a 1 mana lightning helix with suspend which bypasses leyline.

Updated list today. Added 4th Fate Transfer and moved one Necroskitter to sideboard replacing 1x Dispossess.

Just moved to new area, attending FNM:Modern tonight, will see how it holds up.

Seems like every time I consider dropping Throne of the God-Pharaoh, I have a string of games where it dominates. It is definitely more useful in multi-player than 1v1 games. Last weekend it abruptly ended a 3-player game, but admittedly the other 2 players were more interested in shutting each other down than with me. Incremental Blight and Necroskitter netted 3 creatures on T5, then swung T6 with 8 creatures (half at each opponent)... dropped Throne right after combat phase and dealt 8 damage to each opponent. Neither one saw it coming (too preoccupied with each other).

If you haven't already, look at for lots of good cards. Harbinger of Night is very good for tokens. Same for Necroskitter and Blowfly Infestation

Paloma on Red/Black - Withering Rage

Have you considered Forbidden Orchard? It's pretty pricey (this whole deck is way out of my price range though) but it might give you more targets for some of those -1/-1 counters against decks that don't have much or any creatures, letting you trigger Nest of Scarabs, Blowfly Infestation, and The Scorpion God. Plus, free creatures thanks to Necroskitter!

Maybe not the best idea, but seems fun so I thought you might want to try it <3

@SomeFish... thanks so much for the discussion... I used to run Obelisk Spider because when it was spoiled, immediately I thought "this is gonna be great!"... but it was truly underwhelming in my meta, ymmv... Throne of the God-Pharaoh is really strictly better than O Spider, only because of late-game scenarios... I can see Necroskitter being a sideboard card, because as much as I love it, it is totally worthless against token decks.

Hi The_Argus,

Slitherhead or Varolz, the Scar-Striped seem like good fits for this deck. I'd also suggest some additional ramp or a -1/-1 counter synergy to fully utilise Archfiend of Ifnir, possibly something with Wither, Necroskitter or Corrosive Mentor for example?
