Sludge Crawler Discussion

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.

Hello, deck looks good but I would make some changes like getting rid of Corrupted Crossroads unless u want to play some creature for waste and play it only for the second part is not worth i think cuz u can just sacrifice tokens.Next u can reduce Eldrazi Skyspawner to 3 should be enough and add some Ruination Guide i play 4 myself its so powerfull card since u play all devoid cretures for example instead of Fathom Feeder I dont like him anyway.Also u can add more mono Black creatures like Sludge Crawler or Sky Scourer or Culling Drone instead of Salvage Drone cuz u dont need to draw cards and discard after so 2x Sludge Crawler and 2x Sky Scourer will work better. As Sorcs go I would put both Ruinous Path and Transgress the Mind to sideboard unless u play against Plainswalkers a lot much better is Murder since its instant and its cheaper on mana and Complete Disregard also instant cuz sorcs are slow for my taste its can cost u game sometimes. This is my opiion so u dont have to take it seriously its completely up to u anyways good luck with this deck i love all eldrazi decks
