Spud9000 on BRG Negative Counter (MtG Casual)(Need Help)

2 weeks ago


I play a Negative Counters themed deck which is 95% based on GiantMonsterGames Negative Counters - Budget. Both are Golgari, but I have been thinking about how well fits in the deck. (The Scorpion God is such a good card). I even started brewing a Jund Negativity-Version. Maybee you will find some card inspiration there.

Both versions heavily rely on Hapatra and Nest of Scarabs, although the Jund version is pretty much all kinds of stuff thrown in.

The added value of getting Tokens just makes "weaker" cards like Scar work in this kind of deck. And especially as you are playing Kulrath Knight it is vital to be able to put counters on enemy creatures.

Regarding Festering Mummy, there is an outright better version available in Fume Spitter.

I would be really interested in your general experience playing your deck. Is Kulrath Knight a working piece to lock your opponent out of the game, or does it get removed to easy? How do creatures like Ammit Eternal work out?

I built a very similar deck! I use Volt Charge and Grim Affliction to add counters to the Unleashed creatures as well as act as control. I also run Scar because proliferate. The decklist is on my profile here. I dig your deck, budget Rakdos is awesome :)

Rhadamanthus on Regarding Skullbriar and -1 counters

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to link it. It's the easiest way to make sure everyone understands what's going on in your question: Skullbriar, the Walking Grave, Scar

It's going to be tricky to get Skullbriar onto the board in your example. With the way the timing rules for SBAs and triggered abilities work, SBAs are checked and executed right before triggered abilities would even be put onto the stack. You need either a static +/+ effect (Gaea's Anthem, etc.) or an "enters with additional +1/+1 counters" effect (Savage Summoning, etc.).

Have you thought about Scar, Nip Gwyllion, Edge of the Divinity, Figure of Destiny, and Scourge of the Nobilis? Could be great and there are also others in the Shadowmoor/Eventide sets that would work so good in your deck(s)

PickleNutz on No Friends? No Problem (Budget Infect\Wither)

SKUFFLEZ - I can totally understand that, I have friends who wouldn't play against my U/G infect deck either. What we did though was just all went and made different infect decks, and then they started really getting into them. Surprisingly B/G infect is just as devastating and often beats that U/G infect deck. It's the same concept but with removal/ kill spells. Either way, you shouldn't sacrifice your decks potency for the sake of friends. Have them rise up to meet the challenge, or play other decks and use the infect sparingly. This deck is surprisingly fun to play though, I tried it out (minus a few cards) on the kitchen table against a few friends the other day when I first commented. I was missing Scar though, so I added in a card from Amonkhet that had similar function. It's a fun multiplayer deck for sure.

I think In place of Coat of Arms Im going to put in Black Sun's Zenith, It has proven to be resourceful in my tests, And instead of Blight Mamba I think I need a card like Scar, or Torture. Also I will probably take out Pharika's Chosen, because it has proven to be an empty card, and is worse than Wasteland Viper

Cultbrand Cinder, Kulrath Knight, Pyrrhic Revival, Everlasting Torment, Growing Ranks, Safehold Elite, Gravelgill Axeshark, Grief Tyrant, Heartmender, Fate Transfer, Reknit, Scar, and Scuzzback Scrapper aren't legal with Hapatra as your commander. Hybrid mana counts as both colors for the purposes of color identity. Maybe it shouldn't, but it currently does.

I'd go down 1, maybe 2 Scar and put in Grim Flayer.

You have the card diversity to make him a threat.

Scar (as far as I see) is really only useful to make a single snake (without killing anything) IF hapatra is on board, and most-likely wont even get to proc Necroskitter :(
