Plaguecrafter Discussion

Dead-Ra on Karador: Stax Supreme

1 day ago

Hi i think you missed Plaguecrafter but i think he will be really good in your deck and is strict better than flashbang marodeur etc. Also take a look at Beast Whisperer is also really good in Karador. But there are in combination with aura shards also Femeref Enchantress and Viridian Revel who will give a nice draw.

Also here my note to another karador deck whick seams to be private atm. :

Hi iatetoomxch i really like your list. I play a similar list. So i will give you some recommendions. Because of your direct impact preference:

Aura of Silence - hate and destroy one ^^
Wood Elves - really good with the recursion possibilitys
Plaguecrafter - best. Only creature Answer for planeswalker
Ravenous Chupacabra - destroy target creature (an opponent controls)
Ramunap Excavator - i play this card with - Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Oracle of Mul Daya and Yavimaya Elder to ramp lands or Wasteland or Horizon Canopy
Grand Abolisher - make your turn save
Grasp of Fate - sometimes you want more than one thing away
Massacre Wurm - shave live
Bane of Progress - destroy all enchantment and artifact

good but not direct impact:

Underrealm Lich i like him... sure to mana expensive for your meta
Bounty Agent - idk new try to kill commander i think
Kambal, Consul of Allocation - soft lock for life
Mesmeric Orb really good fill for the graveyard and annoys the other ^^
Caustic Caterpillar
Bloom Tender
Helm of Obedience - against my deck all who can play Rest in Peace so this is the answer...

COLINTFF Hi, no worries about typing alot, I type alot often lol.

I like the new formation you've done with it. Looks really good, Plaguecrafter is a good card, especially when you mix afterlife and the opponet having to sacrifice something as well. Three Midnight Reaper probably works alot better and I think your right, its a lot of 3 drops, plus you do have other card draw sources as well so it would synergize well, agreed.

Yeah, keep the Divine Visitation idea for sure, its a really good card for tokens, by using afterlife with it, you can accumulate plenty of angels.

Imperious Oligarch is not a bad choice, more two drops can help out alot actually when you go to play Visitation later in-game. I like Ministrant of Obligation due to its afterlife 2 effect but it is a 2/1 creature like Oligarch plus an extra mana. I understand where your going with it.

Keep up the cool deck ideas, I hope it works out for you like you mentioned. Not to many other ideas I could recommend, your on the right track for sure. Especially in finding a way with the Visitation card.

Also yeah I agree about that as well, lots and lots of different Afterlife renditions. Finding whats fun for you is what would matter. Never think theirs an "exact" way to make a deck. Whatever works for you and enjoyable to play works better than playing a deck you wouldn't enjoy. Some additions definitely help.

Typed alot like I mentioned at the start lol. Let me know how it performs for you when given the chance, and if you have any more ideas or ways to implement the deck idea. Hope it works out :).

SoulsSlayerKnight Hey! check it out now! i actually kept a lot of it because the synergy is very good (until Ixalan and such rotates out.) but this is what i got Plaguecrafter and i switched out Ministrant of Obligation for Imperious Oligarch . I feel like its better with plaguecrafter to help with forcing your own tokens and sac an opponents creature! i also think the lower mana cost monster is more worth it for easier play. after i put 3 Midnight Reaper s in the deck it seemed like to many 3 mana drops and i think it works better. still not where id like it but i keep seeing different renditions of the "afterlife" deck and it keeps changing for me but i for sure want to keep the idea using Divine Visitation . Sorry that was a lot to type. lol

Hey, this is a good start, but there's several budget cards that can upgrades here. First, here's three budget lands to consider: Command Tower , Caves of Koilos and Tainted Field .

Budget upgrades to consider:

Can add all these upgrades for about $14. Most of these cards do something when other creatures die which triggers Teysa. Repeatable abilties and effects are very good in Commander.


Nonbudget cards to consider adding:

If you like some these suggestions I offer more help.

Good luck with your deck.

Yo austintayshus, I love the jankiness of this idea. Out of the commander you listed I would actually think Thraximundar might be your best bet. There is definitely enough cards in the pool for one word cards that also can be useful. Grixis colors also give you plenty of options to work around with his ability. You have cards like Reanimate , Victimize , Necromancy for the recursion tech. Plaguecrafter , Vendetta , Damnation , Dismember for the removal tech. Card draw isn't that bad as you have cards like Ponder , Preordain , Brainstorm , Impulse , Windfall .

Going from there you also have strong protection package like Delay , Counterspell , Pyroblast , Flusterstorm , Dispel . Yeah the more I think about it Grixis is a pretty strong color for what your going for in addition to being pretty friendly on the budget as well.

Hope that helps!

Deck idea is really sweet, I don't think I've seen one like this before. I'm not quite sure how you generally win the game, are creature beats usually enough? That's very possible, I'd have to see the deck play out.

It seems like your deck is really good against creature based decks, but less good against spell-based combo decks. Depending on your meta, that might be absolutely fine, but if such decks become an issue, Rule of Law , Pyroblast / Red Elemental Blast , and Sadistic Hypnotist are great options. Hypnotist is good regardless, and synergizes really well with your deck. If you end up needing more noncreature removal (since you seem to be able to deal with creatures really well), Wear , Anguished Unmaking , Utter End , and Vindicate are flexible answers.

High Market is a great sac outlet on a land, so it comes at a very low cost. Fleshbag Marauder , Merciless Executioner , and Plaguecrafter could all synergize quite well also as sac outlets that hit everyone except you when you steal something for a turn.

Also, I love that you have a category just called Orzhov with a single drain card in it.

Awesome deck!

I would recommend adding Plaguecrafter as a replacement for either Fleshbag Marauder or Merciless Executioner
