I had an idea for a similar deck, but you found a few really good cards I didn't know about. Reef Worm seems like a really good card!

I am confused by the inclusion of Skullclamp in this list. You only have six targets that I can see: Birds of Paradise , Mother of Runes , Lotus Cobra , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Eternal Witness , and Reef Worm . Of those six 3 are mana fixers, 1 is utility, and only Eternal Witness and Reef Worm are what I would consider "good" targets for Skullclamp .

Maybe this slot would be better served by a card like Curiosity , Curious Obsession , or Ophidian Eye ?

Hey Strangelove, neat deck! Looks really solid budget deck; you've got a lot of really good cards that have high impact at low cost. I noticed that you're not running Ashnod's Altar . Any reason, other than budgetary, that it isn't included? Seems like a pretty sweet sac outlet.

I see that you have Falkenrath Noble in your Maybeboard, but have you considered running Zulaport Cutthroat , or the classic Blood Artist ? If you're murderin' critters every turn, both of those guys can be pretty useful. Not sure how much you're trying to avoid gaining life, in order to ensure Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone trigger, but they might prove to be useful in some conditions.

Smart to include Shriekmaw in the deck. Have you considered any other creatures with Evoke? They combo well with the Unspeakable Symbol . Ingot Chewer and Mulldrifter seem like they'd do nicely, perhaps. On the subject of abilities: looks like you've included a few Graft creatures in the deck. Have you at all thought about adding Cytoplast Manipulator ? I've had that card perform miracles in my deck. Steal a dude, +1/+1 it somehow, kill it dead, and it becomes yours!

Have you thought about adding in Treasonous Ogre to your deck? Runs similarly to Unspeakable Symbol , but with red mana instead of +1/+1 counters. Has been used to save my bacon more times than I'd care to mention in my games.

With all the ETB triggers in your deck, you may want to think about adding Noosegraf Mob , since it'll net you zombies, and sets itself up to come back easily, if the last counter isn't removed from the card. Dunno what your budget is, but you may want to consider swapping Butcher of Malakir for something like Dictate of Erebos , which can be used in hilarious ways due to the Flash ability. Another inclusion you may want to consider is River Kelpie , since you're relying heavily on Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone to pull stuff outta the 'yard. Have you put any consideration into using cards that have an Outlast-like effect? Mer-Ek Nightblade and Herald of Secret Streams seem like they could be useful in your deck.

Lastly, I noticed you don't have a Reef Worm in your deck. Not sure if that's a personal choice or what, but let me tell you, it has given many excellent performances in my deck. Being able to loop it several times has proven to be a game ender on more than one occasion.

Anyway, amazing deck! Looks like it'd be an absolute blast to play, and it can be made without breaking the bank!

Yeah, it's the worst. I always overload my decks with fun stuff, and then I don't want to take anything out XD

I guess I would say White Sun's Zenith , Reef Worm , Dragon Throne of Tarkir , or Auriok Windwalker . The first three are slow/mana intensive, Windwalker just because you have several of that effect and most of your equip costs aren't that high. Though redundancy is good in edh, so he'd probably be the last I take out.

Creatures to cut:

Merfolk Looter - doesnt give overall card advantage for 2 mana + only once each turn

Seafloor Oracle - not that many merfolk attacking

Merfolk Branchwalker - doesnt drop a land and only draws if land revealed

Deep-Sea Kraken - only a 6/6 for either 10 mana or a long delay that can be prepared for

Merfolk Mistbinder - not enough merfolk to make the +1/+1 impactful

maybe creatures:

Inkwell Leviathan - 9 mana for a beatstick, no real extra effects but several keywords

Cursecatcher - 1 drop potential counter, but only costs 1 to stop it

Reef Worm - useful blocker but requires dying to be highly useful - could be better to use for 3 mana

Merfolk Trickster - can stop ability based creature going off in a turn, but only once till end of turn - situationally useful

instants to cut:

Grapple with the Past - not much other non-land graveyard interaction so limiting

debate on most the counterspells - better ones in slot but depends on price/availability

enchantments to cut:

Hadana's Climb  Flip - not the biggest impact for in damage difference and takes 3 turns to flip

The Mending of Dominaria - not enough sacking of lands to make value, can lose you other cards

maybe enchantments:

Curse of Verbosity - helps opponents too, may be better in slot but still potentially decent card draw

Ordeal of Nylea - 3 turns to activate so slow but gives double land drop

maybe sorceries to cut:

Beneath the Sands - better in slot for 3 mana maybe

Karn's Temporal Sundering - again, better extra turns in slot - depends on price/availability

pskinn01 on So I'm making Aristocrats W/o ...

I just finished my first draft of Vela the Night-Clad called A Useful Death. I need to acquire some more recursion and self replacing creatures such as Reef Worm . I have not played the deck yet, but the deck looks fun.

rockleemyhero - I am trying to support the aristocrats theme with the commander. Yuriko lends itself to more of a ninja/unblockable/top deck manipulation/big stuff deck. She's not as good with a deck with as few high cast cards that I'm running. Hitting for multiple damage that only do 5 or less puts too big of target on the pilot of the deck. I have seen her in action (2 people locally play her) and she auto becomes the arch enemy. Even when others had combo oriented decks.

Also I wanted a lower end power level wise deck that didn't seem to others like I was playing a $1000 deck, that way I could have a deck that I like to play against the new players we seem to be getting without turning them off due to budget constraints.

I didn't have an aristocratic deck in my arsenal yet, and blue/black seemed more appropriate color wise for it than white/blue.

I wish Havengul Lich was legendary, as I would def use him instead.

I do see that the commander at cmc of 6 will be irrelevant for some games due to getting killed often, but she's the best option for the theme at the moment. I do want a Reef Worm for the deck, along with others that spawn tokens on death.

Wonder and Skullclamp would be an autoinclude. You could do some aristocrats style gameplay while grinding through little self-recurring dudes like Bloodghast, Reef Worm, and Bloodsoaked Champion while churning through your deck with Midnight Reaper or Grim Haruspex, draining everyone with Blood Artist effects and simultaneously clearing the board with Grave Pact effects (found a use for Ruthless Deathfang!)

Havengul Lich, Mimic Vat and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder honorable mentions.

You could include some mind control effects to sac for value. Dragonlord Silumgar and Roil Elemental have a special place in my heart. And while we're on the topic of ETB's you could run a few one-off etb/death guys like Ravenous Chupacabra, Mulldrifter (I believe you can evoke and sac the dude while the evoke sacrifice trigger is on the stack but don't quote me on that) the primordials and Keiga, the Tide Star.
