Puppeteer Clique

Creature — Faerie Wizard

Flying

When Puppeteer Clique enters the battlefield, put target creature card from an opponent's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control. It gains haste. At the beginning of your next end step, exile it.

Persist (When this creature dies, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

So this deck doesn't have almost any really bad cards, but it does have quite a few suboptimal ones. Imma try to explain which and

Butcher of Malakir is almost always worse than Savra, Queen of the Golgari and than Dictate of Erebos. Both of them are much cheaper (mana-wise) and therefore can deal more damage before the opponents gather momentum.

Filth is really just not the best here. Not terrible, but this isn't a beatdown deck. Many of your dudes are always gonna have summoning sickness and the others are gonna just be too smol to deal any real damage.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury is a card that I love and have playtested a lot, but in the 4-mana slot, there are many better things. It's a good card, just not that good.

Hornet Queen is 7 mana and it's not worth it for 7 mana. It's not as good as Grave Titan and really, you should only be running about 4, 5 finishers.

It That Betrays is another badass card, but it is 12 freaking mana and not that great unless you have Butcher of Malakir or a Fleshbag Marauder effect being consistently repeated.

When you don't want your creatures to be sticking around, +1 counters aren't really a good plan. That makes Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest suboptimal.

Mitotic Slime is just slightly worse than Thragtusk here. Its main draw is being a LOT of sac targets, but by turn 5 you shouldn't really need that.

Mycoloth never makes it to your upkeep. Trust me.

Priest of the Blood Rite is fine, but there are better payoffs out there for five mana.

I'd say Sepulchral Primordial over Puppeteer Clique, but it's mostly a matter of preference.

Smothering Abomination, if you have a healthy number of sac outlets, is like Deathreap Ritual, but with a higher likelihood of decking you out.

Vulturous Zombie is only for opponents' graveyards.

Wood Elves is usually a worse Farhaven Elf. Sure the forest comes in untapped but are you going to use it that turn? Not very likely.

So yeah. That's it. If you want me to propose some cards to include I will, but for now I'll assume one very lengthy comment is enough. Have a nice day, and happy brewing!

I have yet to read all these comments, but that list I linked to looks like it was definitely your old list lol

Your deck has changed a LOT! damn...though, that is 3 years old, so, that's expected.

No more Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Viscera Seer, River Kelpie or Puppeteer Clique?? why?

I would replace Bond of Agony for Lifeline as Bond of Agony costs life AND mana making it a disappointing Exsanguinate. I think I would add Genesis Chamber over Oath of Ghouls as 22 creatures is not really that much, unless your meta is very creature light. Barring that perhaps something like Cauldron of Souls over Oath of Ghouls, even though in theory you should be the one benefiting the most it still seems a little to situational.

Some other considerations are Mikaeus, the Unhallowed as he is pretty since he allows you to re-sacrifice non human non token creatures with his handy undying ability. Hangarback Walker is an interesting choice since it creates tokens to fuel sacrifices and they fly. Puppeteer Clique is a solid creature in general and as a bonus is very synergistic with your commander allowing you to double dip for sacrificial purposes.

I think Rogue's Passage is worth considering since this is a pretty low opportunity cost to add some unblockable ability to your deck with a commander that could potentially one shot people. Also it can mess with opponents blocking other opponents stuff and that's always funny.

I like what's going on. I think some of the instants/sorceries can be replaced or cut in lieu of a creature that does the same thing would be good. Unless you're burning an e witness or something to bring them back those cards are worthless in your graveyard, but as creatures they're easier for you to bring back and abuse multiple times. I'll add cards here that I would consider cutting just to bring numbers down.

The rest is kind of flexible I feel with how much you want to do. How many 'ramp' creatures do you want vs how many 'sac outlet' creatures do you want vs how many 'killin shit' creatures do you want, etc. There's a lot of the same-ish effects from a lot of the creatures on the list, those can be narrowed down simply based on how you want things to run. There's a few creatures in there that provide hella value but don't necessarily fit with the theme in my opinion but I don't want to list cards as cuts since I'm not sure what you're thinking. And not to contradict myself right away but I did cut the proliferate stuff because while I get what you're trying to do with the extra counters on your general, I just don't think it's very effective or as reliable as your ability to simply sac outlet your little pissant creatures to get the counters.

  • I think that if you plan on running more bodies or permanents I would cut all of your ramp spells like cultivate and kodama's and shit and just have creatures fill that role. If you can get essentially the same effect, creatures will ALWAYS be a better option than an instant/sorcery in this deck.
