Scorpion Group Slug

Commander / EDH*

Description

The deck plans to utilize discard effects and the draw engine provided by the scorpion god to strip the opponents of cards while keeping cards in hand for ourselves. The Scorpion God is happy to take the game long, as the longer a match goes, the more incremental advantage we accrue. There are also some nice little ways to ensure we have ways to draw cards whenever the general is out, such as using forbidden orchard to give our opponent a creature which we can promptly put a counter on to kill and draw a card.

Painful Quandary would be a good include as well as Waste Not for discard support. Maybe Megrim?

Both Megrim and Waste Not, along with Liliana's Caress, were in the list prior to bringing it down to 100 cards, I just really could't find other things I was okay with removing. Quandry is good, but it's just a bit slow and gives our opponents choices, which I'm not a fan of.

Any suggestions on cards to remove for Waste Not/Megrim/Caress?

Tasigur's Cruelty doesn't look like it would do as much you already have a lot of discard that is better than that. What are you trying to reanimate? You're yard or others? Also Corrosive Mentor looks a little redundant most of you're creatures already have wither or are more utility creatures. I haven't played this particular build but it looks to me like your are not planning on attacking and whittling down your opponents creatures through damage. Also Necropede if you are hoping for it as an early chump blocker maybe? But you have better recursion targets and better ways to distribute-1/-1 counters. I would also think about Arcane Lighthouse in your land base to help hit hexproof(not sure how common it is in your meta).Also on the Painful Quandary you are keeping hands really empty so the losing 5 life for every spell adds up really quickly. As for reanimation package if you are looking for other graveyards Sepulchral Primordial is a powerhouse.

You have quite a few cards that generate 1/1 tokens. How about Skullclamp for more card draw??

Cool Commander!

Have you ever tested with some Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Grim Affliction, Spread the Sickness, Throne of Geth, or Volt Charge?

Happy brewing!
