BabyK on Golgari Sacrifice (MtG Casual)

It has been years since I played 60 card magic, but I'll see if I can offer some insight.

Fleshbag Marauder works really really well with Savra. Surprise, sack all the things.

Tragic Slip would also be very nice with all of the sacrificing going on.

I would drop the rot farms for Tainted Wood or even some of the non-bounce tap lands like Foul Orchard. Idk about your casual scene, but my old kitchen table group loved Stone Rain, which can really set you back if used on the rot farm.

Hi Zeviander

This is a really cool deck and I appreciate your concept of old border cards. Because I wasn't totally familier with the old-border cards myself, i've had to look a bunch of cards. Below you'll find list of cards, you might consider. Regarding the "nightmare" level these cards will give your opponent, thats for you to decide.

Suggestions of likewise cards to your currect configuration:Skeletal Scrying -- Card draw by exiling cards in your graveyard. It can also function as mana dumb.Greed -- Serves the same function as Skeletal Scrying. Instead, you pay 2 life and to draw a card.Gangrenous Goliath -- Another way of utilizing Clerics able to tap for an effect.Headhunter -- Another Cleric with a discard trigger and morph.Restless Dreams -- Allows you to get rid of unwanted cards or cards you want in your graveyard and could return the cheaper or needed Clerics to your hand.

Other lands you might consider:Pine Barrens -- Slow pain-land.Tainted Wood -- Can make both and , as long you have a Swamp.Ebon Stronghold/Peat Bog -- Can sacrifices for . Peat Bog will do this twice, before its sacrificed.Cabal Coffers -- Will ramp your into Scion of Darkness faster.

I hope some of these cards, will make your decks more nightmare-ish for your opponents.

For lands: Command Tower Llanowar Wastes Woodland Cemetery Tainted Wood Blooming Marsh Overgrown Tomb Temple of Malady Reliquary Tower Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse. These are all not too expansive but still really good. If you really want to go budget on your mana base: Golgari Rot Farm Jungle Hollow, Golgari Guildgate, Foul Orchard. I'll follow up with discard cards et cetera later on if you want help with that too.

Hey, Rancor is quite a good card with the sac theme and Kresh because it can keep going back to your hand and gives trample. Slap it on a creature you control give the creature more power, then when you get Kresh into play sac that creature and put Rancor on Kresh.

I like Anger and Brawn here as these are two powerful abilities to give Kresh. Victimize is a very good budget reanimation spell that also lets you sac a creature.

Creakwood Liege can create a 3/3 creature each turn as sac fodder as well as pump just about all other creatures in the deck including +2/+2 to Kresh. Evoke creatures: Shriekmaw and Spitebellows are good with Kresh's ability because they can sac themselves with evoke while also being removal. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is very good, can sac itself or another creature to tutor.

Other cards to consider:

Budget lands to consider to upgrade the manabase:

Good luck with your deck.

Don't forget Sisters of Stone Death and Reaper of the Wilds!

Unfortunaetly there is no support for the Gorgon creature type and many of them are very clunky and cost a lot. I think in order to make the deck fast enough you will need to adapt a reanimater package. Stuff like-

Entomb

Reanimate

Buried Alive

Animate Dead

Dance of the Dead

Jarad's Orders

This way you can do something like Entomb Sisters of Stone Death and then play Animate Dead on it to cheat in into play on turn 2! This way you can get these creatures out earlier than ramping with cards like Orochi Sustainer.

Just my 2 cents.

Also the removal package could use some work

Doom Blade

Go for the Throat

Abrupt Decay

These are some cheap options

The mana base also need help. Add some duals. Nothing crazy or expensive but cards like Llanowar Wastes and Tainted Wood can really help the deck be consistant

Aiding on Anafenza Hate Bears/Midrange

6 months ago

A lot of game stores (at least around me anyways) also discourage mass land killing. A crucible effect + Ghost Quarter is fine, Armageddon is frowned upon.

I actually have an Anafenza list myself, so if you would like, you can look at my land base (I use very few fetches because money isn't worth it to get them yet), but you also could find some spells/creatures you like. My deck is muuuch more midrange and focused on ramp and the word "exile." My deck doesn't have issues closing the game when it gets there, but from my testing, its a slog until you get there, then the decks wins by a large margin.

Also, my deck is a touch on the pricey side when it comes to the lands, but I rarely have mana issues. I would say look into the pain lands (Caves of Koilos (<2$), Llanwar Wastes(<2$), Brushland($10)), the "Tainted" cycle, Tainted Field and Tainted Wood, Sungrass Prairie, and others for nice fixing.
