Try Phyrexian Plaguelord for good -1/-1 effects. CMC is the only downside

thanks! I'll consider getting those

I left some general advice and what sideboard advice I could. I'm hardly a deck building expert so don't consider me the top recommendation candidate.
I need help with this deck. It focuses on getting 2/2 Zombie tokens and sacrificing them to pump Thraximundar.

I need to find more ways of getting zombies on the field. I think I have enough ways to remove them.
I also have a list of cards in the description that I've ordered specifically for this deck. If I could get help deciding which cards to remove to add the newones in that would be great.
Thanks in advance

Nice deck! I've always struggled playing against mono red. Never seen it in commander though.
I think you should consider adding Prowler's Helm. It will pretty well guarantee damage by whatever it is attached to. A basic control method that can put you way ahead is Ember Swallower. Since you're getting free land every turn you don't need to worry about losing 3 permanent lands, but your opponent will be at an immediate disadvantage.
Also, I would consider putting Price of Progress in the main deck instead of the sideboard.
Now for the requested sideboard help.
Probably your sideboard should either give more options in line with the main theme of the deck or give options to combat the main weaknesses that come up during play.
Now I'm not entirely sure what your main weaknesses are, but with some gameplay you should be able to figure it out and sideboard cards that would be effective combatants against it.

I'm going to say stick to Rakdos, Lord of Riots. The other commanders are good, but why not run Rakdos and play It That Betrays on turn 5? Throw in a couple cards like Butcher of Malakir and Malakir Cullblade to compliment the "Annihilator" ability and you're set to go.

I read through that thing and I had no idea. I might give it a try sometime soon

Hey, Corpsejack Menace isn't a legendary creature so it can't be used as your commander.
Still a cool idea for a deck. Additional good pauper cards are Winding Constrictor, Fairgrounds Trumpeter, and Battering Krasis. Kalonian Hydra would work great with corpsejack as well, but it's a bit expensive for pauper.
Nice deck, I love +1/+1 counters in commander

foyle99 thanks! I'll look in to that. I'm planning on massively overhauling this over the weekend and turning it into a sacrifice/graveyard/delirium deck that gets 1/1 counters and does damage indirectly to players - ie., by use of Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord's activated ability. (I'll probably have to consider buying a Ramunap Excavator as well).
With that in mind, Varolz would fit nicely in here, along with Deadbridge Chant, since we're talking Dragon's Maze

You can try using Edric, Spymaster of Trest instead of Nekusar as your commander to be able to run Horizon Chimera. Then use Kumena's Awakening so everyone gets a card and use Donate on the chimera. It would be kind of hard to pull off with 100 cards, but you can make it work

You can use High Market to sack Hapatra quickly and get her back to the command zone.

Hey I noticed your comment that you got skipped.
You might want to consider removing the random stuff and focusing on your pillowfort more. Example: Skyline Despot. This is a great card, but if you don't want other players to focus on you then getting a free 5/5 flyer every turn may not be the best idea.
Good luck and hope I helped.

thanks! that makes it perfectly clear

I've been looking at Terastodon and realised that there's a rule I'm not 100% sure of despite years of playing.
Can creatures be blocked by multiple other creatures, or can they only block a single one unless the attacking creature has menace?
Example: I'm playing G/R against Voltron. I play Terastodon and destroy 3 enchantments, then let my opponent put three 3/3 elephants on the battlefield. Can they use all 3 to block and wipe out Terastodon next turn? Or could they only block with 2+ creatures if, say, Ripscale Predator or Deputized Protester were attacking?
As it stands, It seems like destroying my own permanents would be better with Terastodon

huh, thanks everyone.
Seems like in most cases it's junk, but if it was used in protour i'm sure that I can somehow get some use out of it.
I'm considering making my next Commander deck a Gruul aggro with Ruric Thar, the Unbowed as the commander. Maybe I can find a use for it there.

Way back when Theros came out I got my first ever foil rare: Firedrinker Satyr. I've always wanted to use it in a deck, but I can't justify it because as long as it's blocked it damages me.
Is there a niche use (possibly from Theros) where this works well, or is it a junk rare?

foyle99 I can help with the ramp question!
I'd first add 2 or 3 more basic forests to your lands. After that, add some mana-producing creatures. Some excellent examples are: Elvish Mystic, Voyaging Satyr, Whisperer of the Wilds, Arbor Elf, and Knight of the White Orchid.
Next, add several more mana artifacts. I see you have Sol Ring and Selesnya Signet. These are excellent but not enough. Look into Manalith, Selesnya Keyrune, Selesnya Cluestone, Coldsteel Heart, and Terrarion.
Ideally you want 45-50 cards to produce mana in some form. Since you're playing green it makes things a little easier than with other colours.
Good luck and I hope I helped!

Have you considered Grove of the Guardian as a land?
I'm thinking of making an Emmara Tandris EDH deck myself

cdkime I made your deck and it came out to 44% competitiveness. I then switched all the cards to foils and it came out to 53% competitiveness. Needless to say, 44% for a deck that can't cast anything still proves your point more or less.
My personal assumption is that the more individual $10+ cards you have, the higher your score will be.
