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

I love the challenge of building really cheap decks. This is how the majority of my real life decks start out and then I improve them over time.

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!

@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.

@pokejerk20: Thanks! I'm glad you're liking it so much!

I was gonna say add Swarmyard but its out of the budget range

April 18, 2017 5:51 p.m.

But you could add Nantuko Vigilante it would be useful to destroy annoying enchantments or artifacts

hosshughes says... #16

@turnedexpery81: Thanks for the comments! Swarmyard is in the upgrade section due to its price. Nantuko Vigilante was in an original build of this but I already had Caustic Caterpillar, Caustic Wasps, Rust Scarab and Viridian Corrupter which I think are all better, so it found the cutting room floor.

April 19, 2017 9:35 a.m.

Yeah i guess just trying to be helpful :D

@turnedexpery81: You bet, I always love to hear suggestions!

Good to hear its great to see your decks though most commander decks are really expensive so its great to see this
