Snacrifice Deckling

andbartwo Witch Hunt won't really ever return to Zedruu, allowing you to pass it to others without harming yourself even if randomly selected. Sure you won't gain life off passed items, but making it so other decks can't gain life can be way more important for a budget list like this, especially since Zedruu still gives card draw.(which is the way more important ability IMO.) If it ever becomes burdensome to not be gaining life, the deck has enough nonland removal of it's own to simply banish witch hunt and gain life again.

I've also found in playtesting that passing off creatures isn't very effective. Sure Rust Elemental and Thought Nibbler are very good if they stay on the board, but they'll usually die to removal/board clear/sacrifice effects far more often, and draw the sort of aggro a budget deck like this one wants to avoid at a full table. It's much better to deal with a threat with something like Cast Out, and then donate the enchantment to someone else, who won't really care about getting rid of it since it's not actively harming them. Creatures like Humble Defector have a much more immediate payout because opponents tend to want to keep them around(at least for their turn)

Talruum Piper I simply misread, I had thought it was an effect like Lure that fit into a Minotaur theme, and didn't realize it only effected flying creatures. I'll replace it with something else shortly. Dragon's Eye Sentry is non-threatening, low cost(mana-wise), and late-game easily passed off since it cannot attack or tilt board presence enough to make another player angry at seeing someone else get a free creature.(Also, it fits flavor wise into Zedruu's Jeskai-colored monk/minotaur typing which was nice)

Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer is too expensive for the deck in terms of budget restriction, but would be fun to put in and I might tentatively suggest it for anyone looking to expand the list to a non-budget build.

You should check out Myriad Landscape. Costs 2 to activate but also gets you double the lands per copy.

TheSpaceDuck Glad to hear it!(That you liked it enough to buy most of it, not that you don't know many cards:P)

One of the goals behind the decks was to be a cheap buy-in for newer players(or for players new to EDH), then anyone who has it can start swapping in less budget cards if they want over time.

TheSpaceDuck Thanks!

This one came together pretty easy, since I've had it in mind for a while now(I wanted to make my way through the main colors and some of the guild combinations first though).

Currently I'm waiting to see if Oketra's Monument drops in price once it rotates out of standard, since it's currently around 60-70 cents, which will help with Dakkon's high cost.

Ocelot44 Three words: Out Of Budget. :P

As I write in the description and at least once in the comments of every one of these budget lists I build, the cost per card must be less than 0.30$ on TCGPlayer, excepting the general who can be up somewhere around a dollar, which puts Sword of the Animist significantly out of budget.

Fun deck!

I think you'd get a lot of use out of General's Regalia or Pentagram of the Ages to stop yourself from dying as well. I'd drop Bubbling Cauldron, it's too slow and costs mana TBH. Pristine Talisman would give you consistent life gain and more mana if you wanted something with life gain, and doesn't much change price numbers.
