Tainted Wood Discussion

_Delta_ on Don't Look Into Their Eyes!

Hello, i'm sorry for the delay in responding here. Anyways here are the changes I would make:

Ambuscade for Golgari Locket

Slagwurm Armor for Sol Ring

Pounce for Golgari Signet

Prey Upon for Deathcap Cultivator

Noble Quarry for Sheoldred, Whispering One

Grappling Hook for Vraska the Unseen

Ochran Assassin for Reaper of the Wilds

Bonds of Mortality for Phyrexian Obliterator ? :)

Golgari Findbroker for Treasured Find

Explosive Vegetation for Circuitous Route (If you add in my suggestion of Golgari Guildgate then this is a good reason to make this switch).

Swamp for Hythonia the Cruel as you have 1-2x many lands I think and also are a little low on creatures.

Cut 3x Forests and 5x Swamps for these: Command Tower , Golgari Rot Farm , Woodland Cemetery , Tainted Wood , Overgrown Tomb , Hissing Quagmire , Temple of Malady , Blooming Marsh , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Guildgate , Blighted Woodland , Temple of the False God , Llanowar Wastes , Bojuka Bog . (I gave you more than 10 choices here so you have options at varying prices, choose whichever 10 or even more that you would be willing to include here, keep in mind also that I have ordered them based on my most recommended to least, but all are fine choices here).

I have to get going for now, but I hope that you will find all of this useful, and let me know what you think of these changes!

Tainted Field and Tainted Wood are nice if you can fetch a swamp easily. Just to keep you updated with the new cards, Baird, Steward of Argive is good pillowfort. Sanguine Bond helps with the strategy. Ohran Viper is effectively a draw engine due to its "deathtouch". Kodama's Reach should replace Nissa's Pilgrimage . Mentor of the Meek got reprinted and it's cheap now. Kambal, Consul of Allocation is nice in every deck. Painful Truths is cheap card draw. Solar Tide pulls a good work here.

The most easy upgrade would be for your lands, there's a ton you could add such as Dakmor Salvage , Svogthos, the Restless Tomb , Hissing Quagmire , High Market , Command Tower , Overgrown Tomb , Woodland Cemetery , Westvale Abbey  Flip, Bojuka Bog , Evolving Wilds , Grim Backwoods , Tainted Wood , and Golgari Rot Farm .

I will think of more things at another point when I have more time, if you in turn have any suggestions feel free to give any of my edh decks a look, perhaps my Meren of Clan Nel Toth decklist might give you some ideas in the process.

Hey, Meren is one of the most played casual Commanders. She's the number one pure Golgari Commander, there's thousands of decks built around her.

Some budget cards to consider adding, all my suggestions are $5 or less:

No mana cost self-sac (Sakura and Frog) is the game plan to get a lot of value and experience counters quick with Meren. Sakura with Meren can create a huge amount of ramp from basic lands. Frog can be a repeatable fog effect to keep you alive while getting value/experience from Meren. Skullclamp is a busted card for draw when you're sacing creatures. Buried is like a powerful tutor with Meren's reanimation ability because putting certain creatures into your graveyard gives you access to them. Fauna lets you discard a creature and then tutor for any other creature. She's good to first put a support creature into your graveyard who you can then reanimate with Meren while also tutoring for another creature such as Witness. Intent is a powerful tutor with Meren, gives you experience/creature sac and a card. Loop it with Witness to tutor for all your powerful cards.

Protean Hulk + Phyrexian Delver + Viscera Seer is a budget combo that can tutor for and give you a lot value from creatures and experience. Hulk when it dies being able to tutor for reanimation and a sac outlet is very good.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, consider adding sac outlets? Creatures or other cards that have an ability to sacrifice a Sap:

The nice thing about these cards are they are all repeatable sac and most have no mana cost activations to sac a Sap. Ashnods is not a budget card, but I'm suggesting it because it's very good with Slimefoot since you make colorless mana when you sac a creature. Skullclamp is amazing draw with 1/1 Sap tokens or sac outlets.

Budget lands to consider:

Other Sap themed cards to consider adding:

Cards that give you a repeatable source of Saps for no or little mana cost are very good: Satchel/Tendershoot/Mycoloth/Necrogenesis

Other cards that have good interaction with Saps to consider:

Other good support cards:

Intent is not a budget card, but I'm suggesting it because it has a very powerful effect when you sac a Sap.

I offer more help. If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.
