gabrielguieiro on -1/-1 Counters Everywhere (under $20)

About the 1/1 that comes from Nest of Scarabs, they can hold the game far enought to your finishers take the game - or they can be finishers itself (not rarely the table become full of them. And by "full" I mean like 10, 12; A single Channeler Initiate with 2 nests in game generates 6 tokens. Westvale Abbey  Flip can be easily added in a 2-color deck as yours, using the little 1/1 bastards to transform it.

The cartouche and Trials combo has beem proved not worthy - except in limited formats. The possibility is nice, but in a meta full of fast spot removals, its a risk that we cant afford. But, its just my opinion.

I understood the artifacts point. But I think they are underwhelming cards if compared with others cards with same CMC in your deck. And can be a terrible topdeck. Example: in average, what do you prefer to draw in 4th turn; a Kalitas or a Oracle's Vault? A Kalitas is a good draw when you are ahead or behind in game. Oracle's Vault is better in a very, very specific situation. So, this kind of card only should be used (in a competitive enviroment) in a very, very specific shell. And I dont believe this one is. Sorry if I sound rude or arrogant.

Making a wrap-up, as you asked for, look for these kind of cards (underwhelming). I think;

The biggest advice that I could give is push your three drops around. You currently have WAY too many. If you want the deck to be a more powered version, do a search on mtgtop8 for WB zombies, and emulate their lists. If you want this to be more of a sweet brew around -1/-1 + Solemnity, consider Soulstinger, Vizier of Remedies as additional copies of solemnity, and going abzan with Forests so you get access to the gargantuan green creatures.

I threw in 2 Soulstinger in place of 2 of the Festering Mummy and so far it has worked out pretty well. I'm still running Nest of Scarabs so with 1-2 of those and a Hapatra on the field, all I do is throw out a Channeler and pull an easy 6-11 Tokens.

i24 thanks! That is an interesting card, but isn't Melira, Sylvok Outcast stopping the Blowfly Infestation combo? And sometimes I do not mind -1/-1 counters like Soulstinger (even though that card isn't the strongest in this deck)

Yeah swetybalzack I've played around with Plague Belcher in my BG version and he's fun but I'm not 100% on him. I tend to like Baleful Ammit more in the 3 drop slot. I found Festering Mummy to be underwhelming Exemplar of Strength in his spot of my current GB deck has really been solid. The 3 neg tokens for 2 really do work and combo well with nest. You can kill a scarab get 3 1/1 netting 2 and a 4/4 for 2 mana. I also like Soulstinger but at 4 mana he's is really just a slow removal spell. I do think Ammit Eternal has some potential hapatra into him seems like a good follow up move. I'm working on a more serious version of this deck the dumps the fun cycling thing this version is trying to do if your interested.

Hey! I'm brewing a similar deck! I haven't posted it on Tapped out since I'm not yet happy with it. Some cards I think would benefit this deck. Ammit Eternal from Hour of Devastation. It's a strong addition since it basically gives you a snake/scarab every time your opponent casts anything, plus it's just a pain to deal with. Find a way to give it trample or make it unblockable and you keep resetting it back to a 5/5! Ummm... Other cards.. Baleful Ammit and Plague Belcher? Two more strong 3-drops that give you -1/-1 counters and say "Deal with me or you're in for a bad day" to your opponents. Personally I would drop the Exemplar of Strength, sure they can be good (2-drop 4/4) but anything you place those counters on will likely die. That being said, Festering Mummy and Soulstinger give you good options to drop your -1/-1 counters on! When Festering Mummy dies, you get to drop another -1/-1 counter on an opponent's creature, netting you more snakes and scarabs! Same goes for Soulstinger. I realize you're trying to go with Jund-colors for the Soul-Scar Mage and combo-ing it with damage spells. Which is good! You do you! Anywho, tell me how your deck fairs and keep us updated on your deck!

Also, don't be afraid to tell me my suggestions are shit xD It's your deck!

Best of luck to ya!

if you're looking for creatures that won't ever die while Mikaeus is out, here is a list.



Wingrattle Scarecrow

Lingering Tormentor


Plague Belcher


Baleful Ammit

Puppeteer Clique

Cinderhaze Wretch

Carnifex Demon

Crystalline Crawler (This card can also give you infinite mana)

Now you just need sac outlets.

Also, Black Market for mana and Noosegraf Mob might be helpful. (When the mob runs out out of counters it will come back with undying)
