Plaguecrafter Discussion

Pikobyte on Muldrotha gravedigger

For protection there are nice and cheap things such as Diplomatic Immunity or Curator's Ward. Both perform really well in my Muldrotha deck. As far as wincons go you have to find a way. You could add some combos or try to control the board with things like Pernicious Deed, Night Incarnate and Plaguecrafter and win with combat damage. Maybe you can find some wincons in my deck, but it’s clearly not a budget list.

I'm interested in the Liliana Vess you have from M11 and M15. If I included a Plaguecrafter foil would you include both in a deal (if you're still looking for the PLaguecrafter).

So it would be Arclight, both Liliana, a Niv-Mizzet and two regular Steam Vents from you. Demonic tutor, the foil Steam Vents, foil Plague Crafter and an Assassin's Trophy from me.

Gatekeeper of malakir - id say Plaguecrafter is probably better in most circumstances

Glaring Spotlight is an answer to hexproof if you feel like you need another

Torment of Hailfire not strictly better or worse than exsanguinate but kills people all the same

Cabal Stronghold is a worse Cabal Coffers, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad

This deck is pretty sweet!

It looks like a solid deck, I'll try it tonight to see how it turns but I make a little change, why 61 cards? I would remove a Plaguecrafter or removal (Murder / Vraska's Contempt)

Looks like fun. Have you considered the new Plaguecrafter to replace one of your other edict creatures? He's strictly an upgrade, and an affordable one, too.

Have you considered running Evolutionary Leap?

Any updates on this list? Guilds of Ravnica has some neat stuff! There are some shoe-ins like Plaguecrafter but I could see Burglar Rat, Mausoleum Secrets, and Doom Whisperer being worth some testing.
Maybe even Liliana, Untouched By Death? Turns a few 1-drop zombies into DIY Gravecrawlers?

I mention Sidisi, Undead Vizier in my notable exclusions like you said it's a good fit if you don't have Demonic/Vampiric.

I'm not running Mana Confluence simply because I haven't felt like spending $10 on it. it would definitely be a good call.

I opted for Plaguecrafter over Vindictive Lich, but either or both are certainly fine to use.

For similar reasons as you mentioned I didn't bother with Disciple of Bolas plus, between various other card draw sources I haven't really needed him. Necropotence etc... plus at CMC4 he is competing with a lot of other cards.

Haste isn't super important for me since i've tried to build in a lot of ways to get counters outside of combat, but i think it would fit well if you were running more of a battle cruiser value deck.

Threaten and etc... is a popular way to build marchesa and definitely has a good support structure. I opted to go a different route though and as you can see i went a lot more aristocrats based. a low power big fatties battle cruiser meta will probably find a lot of success with an Act of Treason focused list though.

also, the Zealous Conscripts Infernal Tribute idea is a good one. nice catch.

let me know if you want any feedback on other cards, I've tested or considered cards in most sets that are released.
