Hangarback Walker is good value town and both artifact and creature great for getting delirium.

@frogkill45 - Thank you too for your suggestions! Hangarback Walker has been on my list for quite some time now, but I haven't been motivated to get them yet. It does have what we need for the deck, so I might just have to get them now, even though I am still hoping that the price for a full playset drops down to 5 Euros...

well nevermind i forgot he was an artifact creature, well i guess he wouldnt be bad anyway incase you feel like dropping something else

I know what you said about budget, but Windswept Heath would seriously help fix your mana, as well as fuel delirium.

Rusty_Shackleford, thank you! I still have some balance left on MCM, so I might take a look at them and see if I can get one or two.

This is going to sound kind stupid, but have you considered cards like Raven's Crime,Delirium Skeins,Nameless Inversion, Collective Brutality or Grisly Salvage to just drop stuff straight to the graveyard madness style? combined with something like Phyrexian Arena or Endless Whispers as enchantments it could provide some real punch.

@lagotripha - Thank you for the suggestion! Some of them look really interesting, especially Raven's Crime and I will be looking into them. Thought about Nameless Inversion already, but I will have to playtest it.

Grisly Salvage is very good in decks that run delirium. It's an easier way to trigger it, plus it's an instant, wich means you can keep your mana open to eliminate a threat, or if nothing comes up, you use the salvage. I use this card in my golgari deck and it's very good, although I run the goyfs and it really powers him up.

@luisserpa - Thank you for the feedback! I do own Grisly Salvage, but I feel in this version of the deck it mills too much and doesn't enable enough. The only cards benefiting from Delirium are Grim Flayer and Traverse the Ulvenwald, which isn't enough I think. However, if I return to a more Delirium heavy deck at some point, I will either use Grisly Salvage or Grapple with the Past.

Nameless Inversion should fit in nice in this deck.and abrupt decay or fatal push over abzan charm
February 9, 2017 9:10 a.m.
@RaZielow - I had my eye on Nameless Inversion for a while, but can't figure out which card I should take out for it. Abzan Charm is more of a placeholder atm, so I agree with replacing it for more decent removal. Also, thank you for your feedback!

Since you're playing for delirium, may i suggest Topplegeist
February 18, 2017 5:41 p.m.
@slimoGMS - Thank you! These are all great suggestions and I will try to find space for them. I have played around with Topplegeist, but haven't decided how many I should run and when they are useful.

You should try for yourself in your meta. I think three is enough. I would go down to 23 Land. That would be 2 spot for an artifact

The deck is called "Flaying Souls" but doesn't play Soulflayer. I am disappointed 3/10

so i know this is supposed to be budget but is there any way you could get your hands on a bitterblossom? it would kill them combined with sorin. it is a tribal enchantment so if its milled then it becomes 2 card types for flayer. you need tribal for delirium and also enchantments from somewhere.

I would love to see some Gnarlwood Dryads here, that card is surprisingly good. Also Satyr Wayfinder works really well in these kind of decks.

Abzan is also my favourite colour combination and I'm in awe that you're not running Anafenza, the Foremost. She is everything your deck wants. Since I can't afford Tarmogoyfs and Dark Confidants. Warden didn't do much for me, I believe he is too slow and easily removed. Try and consider Sylvan Caryatid. Land base should always be 23+. You don't want to run less eventhough you have traverse. Running Emrakul is tricky if you don't have creature recursion. Grapple with the Past. I personally belive the tricky part is that you're trying to put too much mechanics into one deck. Delirium is basically just G/B whereas control midrange is Abzan. I'll put my deck up so you can see how I run semi budget midrange Abzan deck. P.S. Card advantage is very important in abzan. Run Phyrexian Arena or don't exclude Abzan Charm. Many of the spells should be in your sideboard a la Hero's Downfall. +1 Vault of the Archangel, just trust me on this one.
