Sludge Crawler Discussion

Argeaux on Is there a place for ...

As far as I'm concerned every deck with a strong vision of how it will win, and how it will stop its Opponents winning, is viable.

As long as you are happy with not coming first at FNM. Although sometimes that is a pleasant result.

You are going to need some early Eldrazi with Ingest to get the most out of Wasteland Strangler. I know you have Transgress the Mind but I believe you will need more than just that.

Sludge Crawler and Culling Drone might be what you need.

An early Creature with Deathtouch would also be useful. You'd be surprised at the tempo advantage that can give you.

It lets you use a Creature as thought it is a destruction spell.

I consider Thought-Knot Seer essentially in this type of deck.

You might want to look at adding Harsh Scrutiny. I run it in a Control deck and the extra hand disruption + Scry is invaluable.

I would suggest that you build a deck so that I can test it and give you further advice.

That's what I find most effective.

I like Sludge Crawler, especially ingest, but I think I like the two small fliers a bit better. I'll think about it. Matter Reshaper doesn't thrill me, mostly because I really like Dominator Drone. Thanks for the suggestions.

Sludge Crawler is actually really good. I'd also consider Matter Reshaper or Wasteland Strangler. Good luck and happy new year.

I totally agree w/you, Grayice.

After some play testing, I noticed that it was too hit or miss trying to get that splash, balancing land out for the splash, and just not getting enough out of the Thraben Inspector, and clue tokens. Plus, clue tokens don't help with the Metalwork Colossus.

I was thinking any of these could fill that vacated space:

Vampire Cutthroat

Endless One

Sludge Crawler

Salvage Drone

Prophet of Distortion

I like the Salvage Drone for potential card draw when he dies, Endless One is cool, and you can make it huge late game if you want.

Since white will be gone, adding: Sunken Hollow

I'm always open to any type of suggestions. This was something I saw, and decided to change it around.

I suggest getting rid of all cards that involve energy counters, because I don't know how well that works with eldrazis. The better option is adding like 4 door Door of Destinies to your deck other cheaper eldrazi such as Sludge Crawler Forerunner of Slaughter and Herald of Kozilek as a few examples. Especially Herald of Kozilek

I have Mirko and Phenax but sadly i don't have any of the other cards you listed BUT i can obtain the ones you have suggested easily because they are of a lower dollar range for cards. I can purchase them or trade for them easily. But i think the key cards that you listed would be those two anyhow. So i will remove Sludge Crawler and Mist Intruder for those two even though they are higher mana cost but i can get them out easily the way this deck flows. This deck is really great surprisingly but will be even better with those two cards in it and when i get thee other ones you listed it will most likely be even better still. I will replace those two right away, play test the deck again immediately and i'll hit you back with the results on a later date. Thanks again very much.

your tappedout friend,

It wasn't showing up for him as the commander on my pc, works now. Also, you have a fairly weak creature base. I'm trying to think of good dragons to suggest, but the creatures like Sludge Crawler are just bad. Most things would be good in their place honestly.
