Plaguecrafter Discussion

Hey, this is a very cheap deck. Are you not able to spend a little more? A $20 upgrade could really help your deck.

Even though have a low budget to work with there's still several upgrades you could make. Some upgrades to consider are to take more advantage of Teysa's ability to give you additional die triggers when a creature dies.

Good budget cards, $1 or less each, to consider adding:

I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.

Frosto Im definitly putting Kraul Foragers in my sideboard, I'm worried that Massacre Girl costs to much, and most of my removal comes from Plaguecrafter. I am considering Polukranos, Unchained.

Ah, you must be so lucky to play a meta with so little planeswalkers.

For recursion enabling creatures, I was thinking about Plaguecrafter and Underrealm Lich. Most likely you have seen these already, but you never know.

This is an interesting concept, but I think the meta just isn't in the right place for this. Any mono-red aggro goes under you, Temur Clover/Jeskai Fires goes over you, Azorius Control hardly exists anymore, but it waits you out as well, Rakdos Sacrifice you have no meaningful interaction with...

Just the lack of non-creature interaction in this deck means it won't be able to interact with the artifacts and enchantments that are so pervasive in this meta. You've got Planar Cleansing, but with nothing to follow that up with, you're still going to lose because your opponent can just rebuild.

Most of these cards are decent cards, they just don't fit together. You need a lot of sac-chaff for Doom Foretold and Plaguecrafter to work well, you need to make your opponent draw cards for Underworld Dreams to do good work (you also need more black mana, from the simple fact it costs , and Covetous Urge basically costs ),

enpc Plaguecrafter, in a few cases, can be looped a few times, but I can see why you could say it isn't as effective. I will think about those three options and I'll sit on the Plaguecrafter, thanks.

Plaguecrafter feels very out of place here. you're not trying to build some sort of sacrifice themed deck, so you won't get as much value out of it.

Swords to Plowshares and Nature's Claim are straight up going to be some of your best removal options. Drown in the Loch isn't too bad either.

Hey, I like your version of Athreos and it has a much higher budget than your Niv deck, nice Scrubland :) There's not a lot of versions of Athroes yet to compare too, but there's some really good interactions here especially Nightmare Shepherd and Mangara of Corondor.

Puppeteer Clique can steal an opponents creature from their graveyard, attack with that creature, at your end step stack the triggers to first put a coin counter on that creature then exile it, returning it to the battlefield under your control.

Eldrazi Displacer can be repeatable exile of opponents creatures for three mana. Steal any opponents creature at your end step at instant speed after you put a coin counter on that creature. Displacer would require more colorless mana sources from lands and mana rocks: Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Talisman of Hierarchy, Mind Stone, Tainted Field, Esper Panorama, Ash Barrens. Displacer can also protect you from an opponent creature attacking you since if you blink an attacking creature it will leave combat and ETB tapped. Can also use the blink with politics.

Plaguecrafter and Fleshbag Marauder are powerful creatures in multiplayer Commander who can sac themselves or another creature you control who may have a coin counter. These creatures are good with Mimic Vat which would give you a repeatable creature at instant speed who can make all your opponents sac a creature. Vat can pair nicely with many board wipes since you can imprint an opponents creature.

Good luck with your deck.
