Watchers of the Dead Discussion

Soulus101 on Swallower of Sanity

Hey, snap! Sanity Swallower. I like the idea of the Abandoned Sarcophagus, may steal that. I would mainboard Censor and sideboard Negate/Essence Scatter to bring against targeted opponents. You'll realise how useful Dive Down will be when you consider Blossoming Defense. You've got Watchers of the Dead and Sentinel Totem in your sideboard; overkill?

If you're going for discard, you might as well include Fraying Sanity to mill your opponents out. Also, graveyard hate is probably something to think about. I suggest Sentinel Totem and/or Watchers of the Dead. Cheers!

Kinda budget:

You need 4x Thought-Knot Seer

3-4x Reality Smasher


Dismember instead of Diabolic Tutor

Non Budget:1x Wurmcoil Engine

1x Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

2-3x Karn Liberated

2 All Is Dust

4x Walking Ballista

What you should remove:I'm a big fan of Memoricide and Sadistic Sacrament but most of the time it's not usefull in most games.

Silent Skimmer

Watchers of the Dead

Diabolic Tutor

Battle at the Bridge is fine but Dismember is better

Dash Hopes will never do what you want it to do.

Doom Blade should be Fatal Push or budget Go for the Throat depending on your local meta

Hope this helps!

I like the combination of Durable Handicraft and Vanquisher's Banner. I know that Metallic Mimic and Anointed Procession are more-or-less standard in a cat tribal deck, but you have a reasonable number of buffs for your kittens. Nissa, Steward of Elements would allow you to scry, speed up your landfall and help to summon creatures, but I cant see anything obvious that you could replace (except maybe Watchers of the Dead, which seems like more of a side-board card).

Take out Watchers of the Dead sideboard Tormod's Crypt instead. Consider Jace's Phantasm and effects like Dramatic Reversal

take out Watchers of the Dead and put in 1x Regal Caracal. Also take out Lifecrafter's Bestiary and put in Oketra's Monument. Take out Skywhaler's Shot and put in Cast Out. I would recommend Metallic Mimic but you said ur on a budget. Have fun with those ferocious little kittens!

Graveyard hate, eh? Burn Away do anything for you? if not, I recommend Mudhole for lands, Cranial Archive for card draw, Phyrexian Furnace is cheap but slow, Thran Foundry, and Watchers of the Dead seem like good choices to sub in. as for cuts, if you feel Vicious Shadows over preforms, then leave it in, but I just don't see how. It's trigger can be mitigated by having a low hand count. Shefet Monitor also could be cut.

All in all, I love your deck, commander needs more beat-down decks like this one rather than the tier 1 combo-crud that's been hitting my meta recently.
