_Delta_ on Death Cannot Escape a Thousand Eyes [Competitive]

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.

Hey, looks good, nice job adapting the Guild Kit into a Commander deck :)

There's a few cards here that can be upgraded with better budget cards:

  1. Regrowth > Recollect
  2. Farhaven Elf > District Guide: Farhaven puts a Basic Forest or Swamp directly into play not into your hand.
  3. Putrid Imp > Erstwhile Trooper
  4. Dread Return > Vigor Mortis: reanimation spell you can potentially use twice.
  5. Carrion Feeder > Golgari Rotwurm
  6. Viscera Seer > Drooling Groodion

Other budget cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Creeping Chill
  • Tranquility
  • Undercity Uprising
  • Status / Statue
  • Rolling Spoil
  • Vigorspore Wurm
  • Swarm Guildmage
  • Sisters of Stone Death
  • Rot Shambler
  • Rhizome Lurcher
  • Lhurgoyf
  • Slum Reaper
  • 1x Forest
  • 1x Swamp

Good luck with your deck.

Triton on pharika, the enchantress

What’s your budget? There are a couple really good (although expensive) enchantresses that draw cards.

Lands that you could use that are budget: Command Tower, Tainted Wood, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, any ETB tapped duals (there are not many 1-2 drops so the drawback is negligible).

Mindcrank combos with Duskmantle Guildmage quite nicely, in case you havent been hit with that one yet...

For budget-y mana - look at Underground River, Tainted Isle, Yavimaya Coast, Skyshroud Forest, Tainted Wood, and Llanowar Wastes
