Thanks for the suggestion tiagompm! Skirsdag High Priest does look interesting, like a sort of mini-Hogaak with the convoke aspect, though I might need to add more of those sacrifice cards to get Morbid active more reliably.

Hello henrypan321!

Excellent options for a budget deck! Quite consistent, cheap and makes you want to move on to this idea!!

To bad dont have more cards to give haste to commander, but I realize that they are expensive for the project itself.

I only recommend the Skirsdag High Priest which, in my view, fits like a glove on the deck!

Keep up the good work!

HelloAngelDiscarnate!

I am a player who loves my graveyard ... I have more competitive decks: Meren lord of the undead - Gitrog The Bogeyland - Muldrotha Competitive/Stax and others more goodstuff with land-theme Taisigur Lands Matter - Muldrotha Land Power!

There's a card that the commander's guys don't give much value but is stupidly strong on a Meren deck: Skirsdag High Priest! Try matching with Apprentice Necromancer and you have two friends for life!

You can test putting more zombies like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed; Diregraf Colossus; Plague Belcher; Sidisi, Undead Vizier to give more strength to your zombie-combo!

I don't see much use to Seedborn Muse and Underworld Dreams. Be very careful with The Gitrog Monster because you don't have a lans-reanimator like Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator ... having a Life from the Loam would be a good help ...

I hope I could have been useful! Continue this journey of digging up the dead! Muuuahahah!

Hello multimedia!

Very good golgari budget!

As a thank you for helping me with my Muldrotha "Super Budget" The Gravetide, and out of curiosity because I love golgari Gitrog The Bogeyland I would like to suggest an idea for your deck:

I looked at your Apprentice Necromancer and immediately remembered Skirsdag High Priest! Very good for any time of the game and easily create a horde of demons! I will seriously consider putting it on my Meren lord of the undead!

Eldritch Evolution is one of the best tutors for Meren;

Priest of Titania to give extra use to your elves ... And you can even add another Oakhame Adversary who is very good at commander!

Good Luck to your decks and keep safe!

you could use something better than rakdos charm to finish off the opponent, cus if they dont have a creature out that kinda sucks. Lightning Bolt is good in pretty much all decks . you might want more lands and maybe some more removal spells too. Go for the Throat , Doom Blade Cast Down Tragic Slip arent bad options.

Sign in Blood is good for card draw and you can make the opponent lose two life to also finish them off if master of cruelties hits

Crypt Ghast can be great for loads of mana

Westvale Abbey  Flip is an awesome land and if you end up getting out alot of clerics you can sac em.

Skirsdag High Priest is another cool cleric

some other cool demons are:

Bloodgift Demon he can also finish the game a turn after if master of cruelties hits

Master of the Feast

Demon of Catastrophes

Lord of the Void

Desecration Demon

Sire Of Insanity

Abhorrent Overlord

Editing the deck a bit, let me know what you think:

Bloodsoaked Champion in place of Return to the Ranks

Anguished Unmaking in place of Necrotic Sliver

Zulaport Cutthroat in place of Skirsdag High Priest

Hall of Heliod's Generosity in place of Secluded Steppe

Have a Similar Demon worship/human sacrifice with some extra synergies. Basically, it generates small tokens to feed the demons, but also generates huge flyers. Starting with 2x Ravenous Demon  Flip and 3x Demon of Catastrophes, cheap and lethal, just because you can get short of tokens. 2 copies of Rite of Belzenlok, wich generates creatures to sacrifice and at the third turn since you cast cast it, generates a huge flying 6/6 Demon token with trample. My main token generator creatures are 4 copies of Doomed Traveler and 2 copies of Thraben Doomsayer. I use 2x Skirsdag Flayer as a crature removal wich at the same time triggers Skirsdag High Priest ability (4 copies). Which is great. Tokens generators spells:3x Lingering Souls, 4x Gather the Townsfolk, 2xPromise of Bunrei, 1x Increasing Devotion.Some more synergies: 2 copies of Teysa Karlov, witch doubles tokens when Doomed Traveler dies, also giving vigilance and lifelink to ALL you tokens, including the demons generated from Rite of Belzenlok and Skirsdag High Priest, which is pretty solid. The rest of the Deck includes removals: 2x Bone Splinters, 4x Mortify. 2x Altar's Reap also feed the Sacrifice/Trigger mechanism giving extra cards. 2x Westvale Abbey  Flip for flavour and, of course, a 9/9 flying, lifelink, Indestructible hasted finisher!

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Let's see what kind of trouble we can get into

Personally I think the logistics of the deck should always come down to playtesting and the local meta. That being said, here's what I'd change out from a glance. Also I avoided most of the discard to make room for card draw.

Remove - 15

Add - 15

  • 4 Swamp - Bringing the land count to 22 because a lot of cards in your deck still require mana for abilites. (Pack Rat, Bone-reader, Piper, Ink-Eyes)
  • 3 Ayara, First of Locthwain - Not 4 to avoid dead draws because it is legendary.
  • 4 Piper of the Swarm - Not legendary, earliest token generator, and works with pretty much everything in the deck/fuels Ayara and Marrow-Gnawler.
  • 2 Morbid Curiosity - To fill up your hand mid to late game.
  • 2 Read the Bones - More card draw

Bonus

You'll still have 20 rats in the deck, which should keep Marrow-Gnawler happy. Read the Bones and Morbid Curiosity are probably the easiest thing to change here for sideboard. I'd probably replace it with Throat Slitter and/or Okiba-Gang Shinobi (or two of the bonus cards) depending on the meta. Hope this helps and I wish you luck with you FNM =).
