Woops, missed that Rot Shambler. But still, that's only 6 creatures that benefit from Hardened Scales right? How did you arrive at 18 Cicjose?

Meurth - Don't forget about Rot Shambler

Just realized I had Rot Shambler in another Modern deck I'm scrapping because my friend wants to use Abzan Ascendancy in a Commander build.

I've been messing with a fun build of something similar. Slimefoot's Funguy Farm. I pretty much had all the cards except parallel lives, which is just a way for me to ramp up tokens to bulk things like Rot Shambler and Bloodbriar by sacrificing tokens to Costly Plunder and Thallid Omnivore. I've sideboarded a few Vicious Offering. These sacrifice triggers also allow Slimefoot, the Stowaway to ping my opponents.

Like you this was all for casual play with my friends.

You could easily turn this into a Prossh, Skyraider of Kher deck.

I guess the game plan is use Reyhan to acumulate tokens in the battleflied and the put a bunch of them on Tana to create a lot of tokens to overcome your oponents. Tana rules are amazing, but she is trapped in a puny human body, you may want to add ways to make her unblockable Rogue's Passage is always good, I like a lot Key to the City.

Two good budget counters cards that come to my mind are Winding Constrictor and Path of Discovery. There are also many creatures that get counters when creatures dies like Lumberknot, Scavenger Drake or the low cost version that only cares about your creatures Rot Shambler these guys are great because they unify both themes of the deck.

Hardened Scales, Twilight Drover and Requiem Angel are ones that i considered but cut, although i do love how they fit in the deck and i would love to eventually fit them in, as well as Walking Ballista. I have chosen Dictate of Erebos and not Grave Pact because of the mana requirement, though again both would be good. how does Unruly Mob and Rot Shambler feed the combo exactly in a way my other pieces dont?

Ghave is a really dangerous Commander, as infinite combos are easy to achieve. Phyrexian Altar and Earthcraft can act as pseudo versions of adhnods.

Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact turn your sacs into removal.

Rot Shambler, Twilight Drover, Requiem Angel, Unruly Mob and Hardened Scales all feed the combo.

Use responsibly.

Boza on Advice on Building deck for ...

Honestly, the best advice is to identify your 9 best cards, acquire 4 copies of them and add 24 lands to the result. The best way to improve a deck is consistency.

Your current deck plays 19 lands with close to 0 fixing and multiple 5-drops. Additionally, the color requirements on cards are very strict, exacerbating the problem. You are not losing to your friends blue/white deck, you are probably losing more to your own manabase. The word manaBASE is very apt - if the base of your deck is not right, nothing else is optimal.

Amonkhet block has a nice theme in Black/Green that is based on -1/-1 counters, which work great with liliana. Liliana is a 7 drop, so you need 23-24 lands to play her consistently at turn 7. We can focus the rest of the deck to get you easier and more safely get to liliana.

I will suggest dirt cheap cards to get to add to the deck:

4 Disciple of Bolas, 4 Rot Shambler, 4 Viridian Emissary, 2 Ulvenwald Mysteries, 1 Liliana, Death Wielder, 4 Reaper of the Wilds, 4 Doom Blade, 4 Primal Druid, 4 Dutiful Attendant, 4 Bone Splinters, 2 Qarsi High Priest, 23 lands

I jammed as many playsets and cheap thematic cards that work off of sacrificing your own to get ahead as possible. The idea is to profit from stuff dying, especially your own, and if it does not pan out, ultimate Liliana to get everything back.
