Description

The deck has gone through many phases but I think I'm almost settled on the composition. Suggestions and criticisms are still wanted!

I'm looking for opinions/ suggestions on the composition of the number of cards as well as weaknesses in the deck.

Thanks for all the +1's and advice/suggestions! I'm always looking to improve my decks so don't hesitate to comment!

Wondering if I should mainboard Rancor ? If so, what should I remove, Tragic Slip ? Or a mix of cards. Deck seems to be quite strong without it but the one drop, trample, attack boost, is so tempting.

Budget — Oct. 15, 2012

The deck has also been modified of late to fit my budget. No abrupt decay or shocklands as they don't fit monetarily.

I've thought about replacing Necropolis Regent with Desecration Demon to fit the mana curve better. Also DD with Corpsejack Menace would combo for further counters any time someone wants to tap it. Thoughts?

Dreg Mangler , Treasured Find and Golgari Charm , Wild Beastmaster are all great cards for this deck :)

i had to read this multiple times before i noticed something that unsettled me. the lack of Lotleth Troll .

Lotleth Troll would be pretty impressive in this kind of creature-heavy deck. Agreed. There's so "scavengy" stuff to discard so troll would be enjoying nice double meals.

Will definitely add Lotleth Troll !

Try adding some Champion of Lambholt too. You have 31 creatures + Corpsejack Menace ability, so he'll get really strong, and your opponent probably won't be able to block.

card:Death's Presence would be great with the Corpsejack Menace .

October 3, 2012 11:12 p.m.

card:Death's Presence fits perfectly into the counters combos but the mana is a bit high. And I would and Champion of Lambholt but the deck is running really smoothly so far. I may add the champ to the sideboard or keep it close.

Still think can be to fragile how it works. Rest in Peace and few Supreme Verdict would completly ruim the the game. You have 31 creatures, but strong creatures that can win the game are just few of them.

I'm not quite sure if it would fit, but I'm going to go ahead and suggest Grisly Salvage because it did me wonders in the prerelease.

Nice deck, the only suggestions I have are that card:Jarad's Orders would be very helpful for finding a creature and scavanging, and that Necropolis Regent is a bit high for your mana curve... although it works well, so replacing it is up to you.

...and that's it! Overall, awesome deck. +1!

Oh and check out my deck, Counters gonna Count if you have some free time.

That's a very good idea! I believe that Desecration Demon will work better than Necropolis Regent so I say go for it. With Corpsejack Menace on the field, it could get nasty very fast.

Desecration Demon is really weak in late game, seen tons of player play it out when they need defense. problem with Desecration Demon is that if someone wants to get past it they will. I would rather go for Necropolis Regent , okey its three black mana but you got mana fix or you could switch them out for Grisly Salvage .

Or undying could work good like Young Wolf and that Strangleroot Geist .With Corpsejack Menace you could buff them up good depending on how many you got out on the battlefield.

Thanks for the help so far! I had earlier versions with Increasing Savagery but then i had to skimp on removal which made things a bit difficult. I'll definitely sideboard and test it out in upcoming games. I've also removed Desecration Demon in favor of removal, as HollowClyde mentioned, it was not very effective mid-late game.

you need blue rings in this deck. hex proof on command is so good. plus on an early Fog Bank = good game. i would also recommend 1 Diabolic Revelation and/or card:Sphinx's Revelation instead of running essence harvests. I mean if u dont get the right combo Essence Harvest is a dead card. Tragic Slip is not good in this deck because you dont have much removal to combo it with you could put in Ultimate Price to combo better with Tragic Slip instead of Essence Harvest . I think Slitherhead should be replaced with Deathrite Shaman . Also i would take out 1 Primordial Hydra and put a Tree of Redemption in. Although Dreg Mangler is a great card I think either 1 Gatecreeper Vine and 2 Trestle Troll better fit the deck. In the end its up to you, if you run more defenders i would also run a Door to Nothingness as an alternate win con.

I like this deck with some blue in it. I have a similar deck running with the addition of Predator Ooze . It's called Count Me In!
