Hey, saw your forum topic asking if any recent cards are worth an upgrade in any of your decks. Out of all your decks this one in my opinion has the most potential for upgrades. Even just with cards that are already in Magic, not ones that were in recent sets. You seem serious about upgrading this deck therefore most of my suggestions won't be budget cards.

Cards in recent sets to consider:

Other recent:

Cards that can be potential upgrades for cards here:

  1. Diabolic Intent or Vampiric Tutor > Diabolic Tutor
  2. Maelstrom Pulse > Hero's Downfall or Putrefy
  3. Trophy > Abrupt Decay or Putrefy
  4. Reanimate or Animate Dead > Vigor Mortis
  5. Sylvan Library > Ordeal of Nylea
  6. Berserk > Soul's Might
  7. Scavenging Ooze > Obsessive Skinner
  8. Night's Whisper > Harmonize
  9. Drana, Liberator of Malakir > Vastwood Hydra
  10. Rishkar, Peema Renegade > Fungal Behemoth
  11. Pir > Varolz, the Scar-Striped
  12. Unspeakable Symbol > Death's Presence
  13. Umezawa's Jitte > Blessings of Nature
  14. Forum > Evolving Wilds
  15. Greater Good > Curse of Predation

Good luck with your deck.

Thanks for the suggestions ScionLocke, I am definitely gonna change Murder out for some thing, Putrefy as well. But not immediately since I am on a super strict budget at the moment. But I love the idea of Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest and Journey to Eternity  Flip so those will absolutely be going in when I am able to actually upgrade the deck.

-So Status / Statue is almost always a better option than Putrefy even though it cost one more mana on the relevant side.

-There are any number of upgrades to Murder but my personal recommendation there is Tragic Slip. It's almost child's play to trigger morbid in a deck like this.

  • If you have any interest in infinite combos, Nim Deathmantle is the missing piece with Ashnod's Altar. If not, you can ignore that one.

  • Journey to Eternity  Flip is a pet card of mine so I'm going to recommend it but be careful if you add it. It's really easy for an opponent to kill the creature you're trying to enchant it to before it can hit the field and ruin the play.

  • If you want a back-up plan of going wide i have to suggest Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest who changes those 1/1s into massive beaters

  • The last thing I have to suggest you look at is card draw. It is very easy these days to get punished for trying to interact with your graveyard with things like Tormod's Crypt. You may find yourself with a hand full of sacrifice outlets and nothing to do with them after the board has been cleared and your graveyard has been wiped, or you really need to find an answer to something or you're going to lose.

Glad to see another player looking to stretch their legs in the color pie! I hope the golgari swarm is somewhere you can call home!

LordBlackblade on My Approach for Deck Design ...

Boza: You're 100% correct that this is not the entirety of my card selection/pruning process. As you said, there are other factors to consider (color, curve, efficiency, etc.) and I absolutely agree with that.

I wrote this because lately this has been the focus of my improvements with several of my builds. More philosophical (keeping things on-theme) and less nuts-and-bolts (is this X strictly better than Y), if you will. My forte (and my friends joke about it) is that when I build a deck it is usually highly themed and flavorful. When I build, I don't just run cards because they're good (though here are always exceptions... Cyclonic Rift) but because they do what I need them to do, while also following a theme.

Another way to look at it is that when deck building, there is a hierarchy of concerns i.e. What is most important when considering a card? I think this hierarchy is different for every player. For me personally, the top three things I'm concerned about while building are flavor (Fleshbag Marauder instead of Merciless Executioner in a zombie deck), versatility (Assassin's Trophy instead of Putrefy), and curve (Diligent Farmhand vs Dawntreader Elk in a Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck).

I know was a bit long winded, but I hope that gives you a better idea of my current headspace and sort of what lead to writing this post. Also as an aside, I found it funny when you mentioned it being part of an article. That's actually the format I had in mind when I wrote it.
