Bugs - Thriss $40 Budget Infectious Insects

Commander / EDH Budget Infect Mono-Green Tribal





The #1 Thriss deck on TappedOut!


In my ongoing endeavor to bring frugality to Commander, each card in this deck is under $2 and the whole deck is under $40 (not including the commander). If you like what you see, UPVOTE! or you can check out all my other $40 budget decks. If you see some areas of improvement, let me know what you'd change. Just make sure all suggested cards are under $2.

1) Ramp while playing little infect creatures

2) Cast Thriss, Nantuko Prime

3) Buff those little infect creatures to victory

1) Infect

2) Token army



Possibly Illusionist's Bracers? Doubles the commander's power for less than $2!

A quick question: How do you set a background for a page like you did here?

@WithengarUnbound: I thought Illusionist's Bracers were more expensive so thanks! For background images, use < img src="IMAGE URL HERE (MUST BE .JPG)" style="position:fixed;top:0px;left:0px;width:100%;height:100%;z-index:-1;" / > without spaces in your description.

@pokejerk20: Yeah, I haven't made an infect commander deck yet. It's still very frowned upon by a lot of people, but it's a $40 deck so I feel like that's got to count for something :)

It's a good deck. Use it if you want.

Nantuko Elder is a nice Insect that provides you with ramp. Also fits the budget classification.

Deadbridge Goliath is a big creature for its cost, then stretches even more with its scavenge ability. Plus it's an Insect.

Nantuko Disciple is another cheap pumping Insect.

Skylasher is a strong hard counter to blue decks and fliers.

@Austin_Smith_of_Cards: Thanks for the suggestions! Skylasher just does not provide enough value across the board for my liking, but I put in the other 3. Thanks!

No Putrefax? With the pump spells you have, he could easily be a finisher.

@AceGambitDragonfly: Good catch! I'll replace Illusionist's Bracers since it's back over $2.
