Bubbling Muck Discussion
3 weeks ago
+1 I see you already had profane transfusion, my bad. Other good stuff cards to consider...
what is the point of altar of the brood?
Deliver Unto Evil - Choose: Bolas Citadel, Tutor, Boardwipe, Utility Spell... works with politics too. I've found it useful, as aside from ill gotten goods, yawgmoths will and (sort of ) Xiahou Dun the One Eyed, this is good, cheap recursion.
Feed the Swarm - Enchantment removal is key in black. Don't sleep on this, synergy with font of agonies
Mind Twist - Early ramp into this is BRUTAL. Bait counter spells for X=2 prior to casting your wincon. It only hits one person, but it is devastating (note, it says random).
Oubliette - With an updated ruling, you can really mess with opposing commanders.
Phyrexian Arena - Again, not needed, but its nice incremental advantage. I understand you have necro already among (some) other draw, so this may not be necessary. But from my understanding, you are dumping your hand pretty quickly so it might be worth considering.
Yawgmoth's Will - Or is it too expensive?
Buried Ruin - Recur bolas citadel, phyrexian alter or something else of value
Potential swap is Bubbling Muck in place of song of the dammed. Both ramp, although bubbling muck is symmetrical (note Urborg) so perhaps not. Nevertheless, worth mentioning.
I would cut scroll rack for an actual draw spell as you have no shuffling engines (aside from tutors) and it sucks to draw this without m(any) cards in hand.
I love cruel tutor myself, but I think you should swap it for another tutor Mastermind's Acquisition (aka diabolic tutor #2 or better depending on playgroup). You lose less life, you get the card in hand, and your commander can pay for it's mana cost if needed.
I'm surprised to see ad naseum in a deck whose avg cmc is 3.78. How has it worked (or not) for you? I can see you killing yourself too quickly given your commander. Would be best swapped for a different draw spell, tutor, many of the above, etc...
Would love to hear your own thoughts regarding your deck and my suggestions. What's your meta, like, power level, budget, etc...

Asylum because it's too situational and if you're in a bad position in the game it becomes a dead draw.
Eldest is a 5 cost 3 turn trick, not really worth it in the long run when you have much cheaper costing cards doing the same thing.
Awaken hits every player and gives every player tokens. It just doesn't seem good in more cutthroat builds.
If Tinybones is one of your primary wincons I'd think of adding mana boosting cards like Culling the Weak and Bubbling Muck so you can instant speed the damage when they discard. Diabolic Intent is also another good card for searching for your wincons or combo pieces.
I'm building Tergrid as well, most cards I've already ordered and will hopefully be able to play next week, can't wait!

I get the flexibility you're talking about in terms of Thespian's Stage in comparison. However ill keep that in mind when i comes to play testing when i get the ability to in the future.
Lotus Petal can be chained infinitely with the scrap trawler line thus another back up of infinite mana for Tergrid's Lantern . I don't like Bubbling Muck because of its symmetry as you've also noticed but did proxy in (until i can get my hands on one) the Jet Medallion
I like the idea of Blast Zone but can't justify the loss ill take as well since it effects the board
Syphon Mind was cut earlier because instead of a use once sorcery regardless of the "value" it accrues, Grim Haruspex is both more explosive in draw power and more easily recurable within the confines of both mono black, and the deck itself.
to note a conversation with some fellows from my play group however there will be a couple adjustments incoming and as follows,
the reasoning being, in an attempt to understand or prepare for the hypothetical weakness of the deck (aggro/token strategies) i've determined that adding some spot removal (lack of opponent having a choice) to accompany the sacrificial removal spells (opponent has the choice) as well as an additional boardwipe in case of "oh shit" moments that being said there is also the possibility that Grasp of Darkness may eventually be replaced by Executioner's Capsule due to it being both an artifact and recurable.
What are your thoughts?

Regarding swapping vesuva instead of thespian's stage, I like stage because it can copy anything anytime. I value the flexibility of it more than the mana it costs to activate. But thats personal preference.
Regarding Dreamstone for Lotus petal, I've never liked petal personally. One and done mana rocks are best used in cEDH decks or decks that can abuse card draw to make up for the disadvantage. I like Bubbling Muck , although it is symmetrical especially with urborg. Again, personal preference. Lastly, another option in this slot is Jet Medallion
Blast Zone - Deal with artifacts and enchantments
Syphon Mind - Draw 3, each opponent discards 1, you get their stuff. All for 4 mana, the value!
Budget per card? As I know chains would fit nicely with anvil and yawgmoth's will is just value.

It's always much more difficult to provide recommendations for pauper EDH because I usually don't pay attention to the rarity of cards, but I will do my best.
Also I was wondering, you are running some uncommons like the signets, gray merchant. are these because these cards have been printed at common in a different set or your playgroup is ok with some uncommons?
here are some thoughts:
Syphon Mind i would run Bubbling Muck over dark ritual because it is great late game.
Grotesque Mutation will guarantee that your commander will trigger if you cast it on an unblocked attacker.
Unburial Rites is a great card but not sure if you can play it bc it is uncommon.
Leaden Myr for more ramp
Expunge is pretty good removal.
Eternal Thirst is good for triggering your commander.
Mark of the Vampire is good too.
hope these ideas are helpful and let me know if you liked them, i can see if i can come up with some more ideas later

Sweet deck! It looks like a lot of fun to play!
Bubbling Muck might be another card to consider to help you get to those high CMCs and can be a lot less fragile than relying on ghast :)
