i like the idea but i would change the strategy slightly, turn 1-3 ramp > play commander > opponents discard everything > play a some elf lords to pump your board.

so cards i would consider auto includes in a budget build Tasigur's Cruelty The Eldest Reborn Smallpox Pox Harvest Season Arterial Flow Death Cloud Burglar Rat Vicious Rumors Megrim Mausoleum Secrets

I built a very similar deck on MTGO, and it's been playing great. However, mine is far more aggro with a focus around Ruin Raider , doing it's best Dark Confidant impression.

Midnight Reaper is cool and has the knight synergy, but honestly he doesn't provide enough card advantage. And, with more card advantage, I think you can get away with 22 lands. So, I'd move both the Midnight Reaper to the sideboard and drop the Orzhov Guildgate all together in exchange for 3 Ruin Raider

As for dealing with big creatures. The Eldest Reborn is just flat out too expensive, and Oath of Kaya doesn't kill big blockers. I'd drop them altogether. Then, I'd move your Mortify and Moment of Craving into the main, and put 4 Vraska's Contempt or other unconditional removal in the sideboard. But, ultimately there is going to come a time in an aggro deck like this where you have to attack into a bigger blocker to get 2 or 3 other creatures in for damage. As long as you can put more creatures into play than you're losing, and make them leave a blocker(s) up every turn, than you're winning the race. I'd probably be playing both Ruin Raider and Midnight Reaper against a deck like that.

Also, four copies of either Seraph of the Scales or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord seems like too many, and Duress seems like an inefficient way snipe board wipes... I'd drop Duress and replace them with Unbreakable Formation to either board wipe protect or give you a late game push across the line... Then I'd take out 2 copies of both Seraph of the Scales and Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord and put in 4 copies of Dauntless Bodyguard in their place... Being able to drop 2 power on turn one is where you want to be, and the late game ability to protect a bigger threat against removal or a wipe can't be undervalued either.

All in all: lower your curve, get more card advantage, use more efficient spells, and focus on pushing damage through in a way that will win the race even if you lose some creatures in the process.

Angrath's Rampage , The Eldest Reborn , Liliana, Dreadhorde General , but there is an answer for everything ;P

Back on the deck topic, I really like your idea of siding out Lily for Angrath, it actually makes a lot of sense but I never thought about it.

The thing with Sarkhan is he pretty much force your opponent to answer both a 4/4 body and a walker. If he resolves, the worst scenario is a 2 for 1. If they anwser the body, you still threaten to at least do 4, possibly more if you have more walker that are now irrelevant (A lonely 1 loyalty Davriel suddenly becomes a threat). More I play with him, more I find him really good. The only down side is we don't have good CMC 2-3-4 Dragon currently in the format, the only viable one in our color is Skarrgan Hellkite which feels awkward to play on the same turn.

Question for you, do you get the same result as me concerning The Eldest Reborn ? I feel it a bit underwhelming in some matchup. Maybe we want to cut it? I just don't know what to replace it with.

You have some very cool budget ideas. In this deck maybe Rakdos, Lord of Riots , Dreadbore , Vicious Rumors and Fell Specter (if you would go more towards discard theme), Plaguecrafter , Furnace of Rath , Scythe Specter , The Eldest Reborn .

Can't edit it anymore...

Would also sideboard Liliana, Dreadhorde General instead of main deck and sideboard some Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage and The Eldest Reborn vs control decks

Second God-Eternal Bontu also seems mandatory in sideboard

How would you value Footlight Fiend compared to Reassembling Skeleton ?? I think Skeleton is waaay better than a 1/1 that deals 1 damage... Skeleton is also awesome vs mono red as wall.

VampiricJace on Teyo is super cute, okay? (WAR Standard)

Mullac: I've been worried about the Dovin's Veto for a while, and keep changing the amounts of my counterspells. I went back to 3x Absorb and 2x Dovin's Veto . I need the Dovin's Veto for the straight up counters to my Chromium, the Mutable , such as The Eldest Reborn . Sure I can keep it in the sideboard, but during my playtesting, even creature-heavy decks have integral non-creature spells. I did, however, at least lower my Essence Scatter count.

I also find it funny, cause I've had suggestions doing the exact opposite of your suggestions, so my advice is coming from all directions and I'm being picked apart by ducks xP

Either way, thanks! I mull around all suggestions.
