I love random, obscure tribals. My input would be that both Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are better than Butcher of Malakir . If you want more death triggers you can consider Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , Falkenrath Noble , Vindictive Vampire , ect, ect.

Also, Torgaar, Famine Incarnate seems weak when things like Scytheclaw , Quietus Spike , Virtus the Veiled , and other things that half life totals exist.

there has been some hubbub about why ive held on to Virtus the Veiled it stayed because Vesperlark and then that spurred Master of Cruelties and for different reasons Flickerwisp after...

but where's the Fling effect to fill in the yeet?! or even just some way to give him flying, bonus points for giving him flying for one turn to give that full yeeted feeling

Virtus the Veiled probably is worth a slot if you include his partner, just the fact they each would essentially say "draw a card" on them is worth the small hit to flavor (which if you think of it it's still a on the outside a weak looking creature doing massive dmg flavor).

What the heck would happen if I declared attacks with Gorm the Great , Raving Dead , Virtus the Veiled , & Phage the Untouchable and then cast Camouflage ??

Hi!! Really like your build. +1 for Thantis Spiderboy. Looks fun. Have you found many challenges playing this commander? Anything you feel you need to deal with better? I like your addition of Virtus the Veiled I admit he's not someone I thought of, but he and his partner I feel are amazing for Thantis. What do you think of Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor ? They would go good for you.

I would appreciate any help you could offer me on my Thantis build also:

Well here is every golgari commander:

For your first deck it is better to stay away from having too many colors. It just makes the deck more expensive and harder to put together, imo. That said if you want other colors then go for it.

Since you want the deathtouch/trample thing I would go for one that already has deathtouch or trample. So here are a few you might really like.

Glissa, the Traitor - generally an awesome stax deck with her being able to kill most anything. Lots of equipment give trample and if they get blown up she can put them beck into your hand.

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons - doesn't have either ability her self but makes tons of deathtouch tokens. It is a fairly easy step from there to give them trample and pump them with any number of green spells. She is also a pretty staxy commander.

Gorm the Great // Virtus the Veiled - I haven't played this pair but I've seen them in a few games. Virtus is devastating... And no one wants to get hit with him so he almost needs to be given trample or other evasion even with Gorm being present.

Sisters of Stone Death - She is a bit different. Technically she doesn't have deathtouch. What she does is better! Add trample and she does her thing while smacking in for a lot of commander damage.

Finale note is power level of these commanders. None of them are considered competitive and Hapatra and Glissa are likely the only ones I listed that could sit comfortably at a high powered table consistently. And your strategy doesn't always work very well in commander. The attack step is usually just not strong enough... Still you should play what you want.

Virtus the Veiled is a legendary Azra, so I'll make him a flipwalker.

Virtus, Bereft and other Azra creatures you control have "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to an opponent, draw card and discard a card".
