Plaguecrafter Discussion

Same here RNR_Gaming, my group is very chill and we proxy whatever we like to make the most optimal decks. Also part of the fun for me is starting with a deck of proxies and slowly replacing them with real cards until I complete it!

abby315, thank you for commenting! Great points, I have taken your advice and made room for Noetic Scales and Asylum Visitor. I had missed the interaction between the Scales and opponent upkeep discard effects until you mentioned it! I like Plaguecrafter too, I’ll consider squeezing it in.

I’m glad you picked up No Mercy from my list, it is very effective.

My goal is to make this build as competitive and brutal as possible, so if you have any cEDH specific advice, I would love to hear it!

Oh, and Plaguecrafter is very versatile and I think worth a "My Turn Discard" slot. I should add, though, are you making this competitive for "regular" EDH, or are you making it a cEDH deck? The cEDH meta is incredibly specific so I'd have different recommendations there.

I wouldn't waste any slots for spells because you'll probably mill them. Maybe creatures you can fetch with etbs, Vampire Hexmage, Plague Engineer, Reclamation Sage, Plaguecrafter, Fulminator Mage. (because of Fiend Artisan). But honestly, I don't think it works here. I'd probably use Lazav, the Multifarious. Pay 1 turn it into a Crab. Play a land for mills. Pay 1 to turn it into a Supplier when it's targeted.

Spells I do use are like Raven's Crime, Darkblast, Worm Harvest for obvious reasons.

Creeping Chill is a card.

Things I would cut,

Burnished Hart: Your in green so you have way better ramp. Also, its not an ETB effect.

Fleshbag Marauder and Plaguecrafter are good but they hit you as well.

Wurmcoil Engine: Good card but no ETB. You already have quite a few big threats.

Villainous Wealth: Another good card but off theme. I would only keep if your meta has a lot of ETB triggers.

Alternate ramp to consider,

Wood Elves: It can grab to duel lands that have the forest type.

Farhaven Elf: Same as above but can grab any basic.

Springbloom Druid: Sac two lands but then you get 4. Great ramp and deck thinning.

Doesn't quite get you to 100 but hopefully closer.

Make them sac it! That indestructible hexproof unblockable 20/20 got you down? Good thing I have a Plaguecrafter or Diabolic Edict here to make them sad! You can even flash some of it in with Alchemist's Refuge, Winding Canyons, or a whole bunch of artifacts, enchantments, and creatures that let you do it nowadays so they learn their lesson not to swing at you.

There are also a good number of artifacts and lands nowadays that can get rid of that pesky hexproof. Detection Tower, Arcane Lighthouse, and Glaring Spotlight are your friends. And the lands don't even cost you a 'real' card slot, and are favorite!

Plaguecrafter tends to be better than Merciless Executioner, unless I've missed something and the creature types on the executioner are relevant here.

Fleshbag Marauder or Plaguecrafter would be nice

ThousandOaks on Kenrith's Campaign

I love the build. It's really creative to generate more value off of Kenrith's ability. Cowardice and Willbreaker, along with the Plaguecrafter and Spore Frog effects will turn this into a nice control hugs deck.
