I think Hand of Emrakul, Decimator of the Provinces, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, and Pathrazer of Ulamog are too expensive to cast / commander ability for what they do. Some replacement examples would be: Terastodon, Void Winnower, Fleshbag Marauder, Noxious Gearhulk, Ravenous Chupacabra, Plaguecrafter, Eternal Witness, It That Betrays, Woodfall Primus, Acidic Slime, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Sepulchral Primordial, Overseer of the Damned, etc.

cards like Dalek Squadron with a sac outlet will get you a lot of Meren counters quickly. cards like Greater Good are great at filling your graveyard and your hand. cards like Oversold Cemetery are great for your low mana creatures and late game expensive creatures. Tragic Slip isn't a very good card for multiplayer commander, unless you are using something like Isochron Scepter

I think your deck is a little heavy on creature token generators, especially your creatures. I know they are there to build up tokens on Meren and to generate mana, in the early game, but they aren't doing much in the mid to late game. Maybe replace a few with some faster reanimator spells like: Living Death, Lifeline (a personal favorite), Necromancy, Animate Dead, Victimize, Rescue from the Underworld, Beacon of Unrest, etc.

Other cards I would consider cutting: Skullbriar, the Walking Grave (too slow imo unless he is your commander), Blisterpod (needs to die to get the token), Pawn of Ulamog, Vorapede, Village Rites, Gray Merchant of Asphodel (starts to shine with lots of reanimator stuff), Woe Strider, Scion Summoner, Brood Monitor, Deathreap Ritual, Commander's Sphere

It's tough to suggest cards for a budget deck. A card that I might consider to be absolutely necessary could require cheaper options in other parts of the deck to make it fit.

Hey! Joey from EDHRECast commented on upgrades for Captain N'ghathrod here: He focus more on the mill side of things, so he has more targets for reanimation.

Doing my research on topics he didn't touch on, you might want to consider:


Just like what I did with Menacing Aura, it might be wise to stuff some utility into your lands, so you have more options when playing your matches.

Hey theyounghansolo, I have a lot of experience playing K’rrik competitively and I have a few suggestions to help you improve your competitiveness:

ssteves1069 is spot on, Chainer, Dementia Master is crucial to this deck’s functionality. Since his ability is an activated ability, it bypasses Rule of Law and counterspells, which are this deck’s greatest weakness. To use Chainer, you need a proper sacrifice outlet like Dimir House Guard or Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Once you have Chainer, Guard/Razaketh, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel on the board, you’ve assembled an infinite combo and drain each opponent to death. You can also accomplish this with Buried Alive and Necrotic Ooze.

Final Parting targeting Reanimate in hand and Vilis, Broker of Blood in the grave usually wins you the game. Scheming Symmetry should never be run in a competitive setting since you are likely providing an opponent with a combo piece or counterspell.

Beacon of Unrest is too slow, I’d replace it with Shallow Grave. Recurring your artifacts is not critical to your strategy.

Sheoldred, the Apocalypse has the same functionality as Aetherflux Reservoir, but is a creature and can be reanimated. She pairs perfectly with Vilis. Plus Shelly and Peer into the Abyss either gains you lots of life or usually eliminates another player.

To be continued…

What do you think the deck is missing at this point? Another sac outlet like Martyr's Cause or graveyard stealing like Beacon of Unrest.

I decided to leave Chainer, Dementia Master out. I feel my newest additions are more for what the deck does or wants to do. I considered Beacon of Unrest but I don't think I want to cut anything for it. Perhaps Bontu's Monument?

Stay true to the theme of all the creatures. If Plague Spitter doesn't fit than neither does Chainer. If you are looking to steal creatures maybe Ashen Powder, Beacon of Unrest or Gruesome Encore could fill the role without straying from the theme.

If Chainer caught your eye he is a really fun commander to build around Chainer, Dementia Nightmare Master

This looks awesome, great job on the flavour side.

Considering the importance of Maskwood Nexus, how about adding Beacon of Unrest as a way to recurr it.

Bolas's Citadel definitely looks like the citadel from the end of Ghostbusters. Halloween-y enough?

Toxrill, the Corrosive would be a powerful and creepy addition, while being kinda ridiculous with your commander and Nexus.

RiotRunner789 Thank you for the suggestions! While Thrumming Stone is an absolute wincon, Spellweaver Helix and Locket of Yesterdays are important targets for Beacon of Unrest, too. I will put it on the testing list. Phyrexian Arena is too slow I think, as well as Dark Confidant, who will also kill me before I do my opponents. The same goes for the other options, this deck barely has time to cast anything other than Dragon’s Approach. I do like Erebos, God of the Dead, as he will most likely always remain an indestructible enchantment. The life gain hate is great, too.
