Zulaport Cutthroat Discussion

Hey, well done for less than $100.
You actually have infinite combos here. Any time you have Karmic Guide + Reveillark + sac outlet or Guide + Fiend Hunter + sac outlet you have an infinite dies loop of Guide/Lark or Fiend. Guide + Lark + Viscera Seer/Carrion Feeder + Zulaport Cutthroat/Cruel Celebrant is infinite sacs/reanimation of Guide/Lark which is infinite triggers of Cutthroat/Celebrant as the win condition. Another Cutthroat/Celebrant infinite combo is Guide + Fiend + Seer/Feeder + Cutthroat/Celebrant.
Guide + Lark + Altar of Dementia is infinite sacs of Guide/Lark which can be infinite self-mill or infinite opponent mill as the win condition. With self-mill can reanimate all other creatures in your library who Lark can reanimate until you reanimate Cutthroat/Celebrant. This combo is also infinite ETB triggers of creatures who have an ETB ability. If you want to cut the infinite combos from your deck then cut Guide.
These are not easy combos for a beginner to understand. My advice to is simplify by expanding on self-mill to utilize Karador's ability to cast a creature card from your graveyard. This is the causal aspect of Karador that's easy to understand. Creature reanimation is a good/easy to understand strategy with self-mill.
Some other budget cards to consider adding:
- Eternal Witness: could replace $4 Guide as it's not part of combos and is really good with self-mill and Karador.
- Phyrexian Delver: could be a less expensive replacement for Guide that doesn't combo.
- Golgari Thug
- Death's Oasis
- Elves of Deep Shadow
- Priest of Forgotten Gods
- Swords to Plowshares
- Beast Within
Even on a budget the manabase could be improved.
- Exotic Orchard
- Murmuring Bosk
- Llanowar Wastes
- Caves of Koilos
- Tainted Wood
- Tainted Field
- Ash Barrens
- Temple of Plenty
- Temple of Malady
- Temple of Silence
Good luck with your deck.

hello love this deck and thinking of building it with minor changes due to budget but I was wondering whats you opinion on Zulaport Cutthroat because like if you go infinite with Blood Artist or any drainer it don't matter but if you can't go infinite wouldn't Cutthroat be better for the facet he hits everyone

Hey Rick39, +1!
This looks pretty solid, tbh. It's hard to muck up Meren goodstuff. I would cut Carrion Feeder and Syr Konrad, the Grim or Zulaport Cutthroat: yes, they're good, but this looks more like Battlecruiser than Aristocrats. Blood Artist is better than both because of its low CMC and only gets hate from one person (your target).
Categories help a lot. You can order them by adding "#" like so:
1x Spawning Pit #Sacrifice #Tokens
You could include some fancy combos (eg. with Protean Hulk) or synergies to end the game. If you like grinding, be sure you have a few ways to pay commander tax indefinitely or loop with Meren like Black Market or Doomed Necromancer.
If you want to speed the deck up, play more tokens or self-mill.
Seems pretty tame, would be fun in most playgroups, imo.

This looks pretty similar to a regular Yawgmoth, Thran Physician combo deck.

I used to play a lot more of the ETB trigger cards, but cut them for more of the Toolbox theme. But I know where you're coming from. Since Mardu is very good at both tokens and aggro, you can be really selective with the few you use for your aggro suite...I would focus on ones that do something along with the tokens or make really good tokens. Corpse Knight, Angel of Invention, Sling-Gang Lieutenant, Ogre Battledriver, and Priest of the Blood Rite are some examples I can think of. Resolute Blademaster + Mirror Entity is one of my common win-cons if I have to go aggro and overwhelm the board with my somewhat tiny creatures.
You can easy accidentally slide or purposely build into full-on Aristocrats, which along with the ETB damage also deals leaving the battlefield damage with more of the Sir Konrad effects like Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist and more cheap, efficient token makers.
Being conscious of yard-filling cards is always a trick. I would run at least 10 that can get cards from your hand and deck into your graveyard, and a few sacrifice outlets (another 5 or so) to get them off the board. Of course, having extra reanimation is a great idea to get at those things you dumped in case someone neutralizes your commander. I will never get tired of recommending Perpetual Timepiece, since it both mills and saves your good things from exile. Mire Triton has also been impressive recently.
Some of my choices for places to look for cuts (if you're struggling) include Marchesa's Decree, Leave/Chance, Batwing Brume, Sands of Delirium, Quietus Spike, and Raving Dead. Don't feel pressured if any of these are pet cards that you think work really well, they are just my picks for ones we can find replacements to work better for your deck.

Deathspore Thallid can be used to turn your saporlings into some sort of alright removal while being another slow rolling producer.
Night Soil is a great card that can just devastate people's graveyards and you get saporlings for doing it.
Mycologist is another slow rolling card but he is low cmc and is outside green to spread colors around as well as sacrificing for life being good.
Going to do one more part for ramp + good stuff

Hey this is a really cool take on aristocrats! I’m not sure how they will affect your budget, but since Korvold, Far-Cursed King cares about ALL permanents you could go with Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland as well as Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble and the new enchantment from Ikoria once it gets a price.
