TheRedGoat: Thanks for the thoughts/suggestions! The only pieces that care about -1 counters being on the creature when they die are Necroskitter and Blowfly Infestation - the former may get cut, and the latter mostly sticks stuff on my own creatures (so it's not a problem really). The deck mostly cares about the -1 placement itself :)

And regarding your suggestions - Plaguemaw Beast is interesting, but I'm not super convinced that it's worth the 5 mana and waiting for summoning sickness to wear off... Poison-Tip Archer isn't really worth the 4 mana to me, though I could see it fitting into my sideboard for the additional usefulness of having reach (this deck struggles with fliers). Driven / Despair is actually something I want to fit back into the deck when I find space for it (it may replace Necroskitter)! Rishkar, Peema Renegade just seems like a less good version of Cryptolith Rite here, another card I'm trying to fit in (too few slots, bleh). Quillspike recently got cut because he was too fragile, dies from a single counter, and is only really useful with Devoted Druid. Flourishing Defenses is just too much mana for its effect, unfortunately. Harbinger of Night just got cut - he was just too slow and tended to cause problems. Blight Sickle is not efficient enough, in my opinion (I'd rather run Glistening Oil, ANOTHER possible inclusion), and while Hex Parasite is cute against opposing PWs and maybe could find a home in the sideboard, he doesn't advance my game plan enough to put him in the main deck.

Thank you again for the suggestions! :)

So I have a question: How well does this deck interact with +1/+1 counters being placed on creatures? Or having -1/-1 counters removed before the creatures die?

Also, a lists of cards that could be useful (unknown if you already knew about these or play tested them)(would still want to hear your thoughts on them within a deck):

Plaguemaw Beast (sac-a-snake, make-a-nest)

Poison-Tip Archer (redundant win-con is redundant)

Driven Despair (aggro?)

Rishkar, Peema Renegade (any counter counts)

Quillspike (known combo piece)

Flourishing Defenses (see "aggro?")

Harbinger of Night (recommend pair with Melira, Sylvok Outcast )

Blight Sickle (once again, aggro?)

Hex Parasite (political tool)

Fallerup! Thanks for your suggestion!

I think that Poison-Tip Archer is to slow, and if I would need the same effect, I would probably use Blood Artist, or Zulaport Cutthroat. Actually not so long ago I used Blood Artist to win by sacrificing infinite saprolngs with Razaketh on the field, but later I decided to cut it.

Poison-Tip Archer is so fantastic in Golgari decks like this, it has that aristocrat feeling to it, when ever any creature dies, your opponents lose 1 life for each death trigger.

Apologies SandalBandit the convo went to not recommending you deck building tips. Have you thought about adding in Poison-Tip Archer in the deck as another way of deterrent for board wipe?

Hey, nice first budget Commander deck build.

Consider including more two and three drop creatures who put a spore counter on themselves each upkeep and can use those counters to make a Sap (Mycon, Thallid, Farmer, Deathspore, Shel-Dweller, Germinator, Psychotrope, Vitaspore, etc.). These creatures can make a Sap simply by them just being on the battlefield getting counters. It costs no mana to put spore counters on them, no mana to make a token and it doesn't require another card to make a Sap, that's powerful.

Here's some budget suggestions ($1 or less):

Semi-budget cards to consider ($4-$6):

Non-budget cards to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Elvish Skysweeper
  • Llanowar Scout
  • Ruthless Knave
  • Spore Flower
  • Falkenrath Noble
  • Golgari Cluestone
  • Death Mutation
  • Golgari Keyrune
  • Smothering Abomination

Good luck with your deck.
