Plaguecrafter Discussion

Hey nice deck man, I've been brewing my own Aristocrats deck & saw yours. Here are a few ideas from my Gatherer research that should be affordable:

Reassembling Skeleton Rite of Belzenlok Spark Harvest instead of Final Payment or Mortify Midnight Reaper instead of Dawn of Hope Plaguecrafter (maybe a sideboard card)

I also really like Gutterbones in this deck, I feel like having 4 more one-drops would really help get more consistent fast starts with a turn 1 creature.

Finally, if I was going to take out one thing it would probably be Ethereal Absolution, it just seems a little too high on the curve for this deck & the -1/-1 is situational. Probably better out of the side against control or something like that. Good luck with the deck! :)

This looks sweet. The combination of playable sac effects and expendable creatures is pretty decent in my experience especially when not going all in on the aristocrats archetype. I'd recommend having the Plaguecrafter s main and Knight of Autumn s side because of how the meta's looking but that's not to say knight ain't good here. Priest of the Forgotten Gods is bad often but when it's working the mana boost is so important at resolving your haymakers and keeping up with the boardstate.

Hey thanks for the suggestions kinghehehee and jthumby.

As you can see this isn't even 100 cards yet as I had been busy with other things. I'm going to finish the deck off probably tomorrow and it will of course have more lands and ramp.

I will be adding Plaguecrafter and such for sure, and Sire of Stagnation wow is that good. I haven't got a chance to do much searching for cards yet and had been adding mostly here what just came to mind and I'm sure there's more like the Sire of Stagnation and Cream of the Crop to yet discover.

Thanks for the all the suggestions, when I have time I will have a look at some both of your's.

Fleshbag Marauder , Merciless Executioner and/or Plaguecrafter can keep everyone’s board states in check even if you have to sacrifice as well

multimedia on Help with Meren plz

1 week ago

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. enigmadox gave you great advice; I'll expand on it some.

Include budget creatures who can sac themselves because these creatures can give you experience counters without needing a sac outlet which is another card. Needing both a creature and a sac outlet to sac that creature is more difficult to get then just needing a creature. Sac outlets are also good and you should include them, but they're not as important in my opinion as creatures who can sac themselves.

Four drop Meren can benefit from early game ramp to be able to possibly play her turn three. Budget mana dorks can be ramp in the early game or sac fodder in the mid/later game to get experience counters.

Budget lands to consider adding:

Other budget cards to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer advice on cuts to make. Good luck with your deck.

Considering your on a tight budget, Id cut these:
Rhythm of the Wild (unless you play vs alot of blue control, Love this card but I cut this quick when I realized how many things it doesn't affect that I care about)
Comet Storm
Chain Reaction (maybe keep, it kinda liek blasphemous act but you would have a betetr idea how well it does in your group!)
Stronghold Assassin
Savage Ventmaw
Vampiric Rites
Chancellor of the Forge
Forgotten Ancient
Plaguecrafter
Catacomb Sifter
Deathbringer Thoctar
Atarka, World Render

hullos thanks :) I think I will swap out Doomed Dissenter for Tithe Taker . I should definitely add Judith, the Scourge Diva . I like Plaguecrafter and Midnight Reaper , but Militia Bugler doesn't grab them. I really want a Desecrated Tomb too.
