Carrion Grub

Creature — Insect

Carrion Grub gets +X/+0, where X is the greatest power among creature cards in your graveyard.

When Carrion Grub enters the battlefield, mill four cards. (Put the top four cards of your library into your graveyard.)

@vehiclemaster - Cemetery Tampering looks slow, after casting this, it doesn't affect anything yet.. might playtest it first.. Shakedown Heavy has a lot of hoops to go through just draw a card.. and Topiary Stomper is a one time ramp only, and doesn't affect the board if i draw it very early.. The dispensable creatures i have for ramp feels better.. thanks for the suggestions though..

@RoxieRoxie - Ambitious Dragonborn is lacking compared to other big creatures i have already included in the deck.. like Carrion Grub, Old Stickfingers and Wall of Blood are much better.. Ancient Brass Dragon looks like a fun card though.. might be a card that overturn the situation of the game.. might consider it, but not soon.. since it's still costs high as of the moment.. thanks for the suggestions!

@Tiyos99 - thanks for the suggestions.. although Circle of the Land Druid is an okay disposable land recursion and self milling cheap creature, other options already included in the deck is much better w/o waiting for it to die.. Gray Slaad is not good.. aside from the adventure side of it, the payoff of having 4 or more creatures in the graveyard is underwhelming..

Cool deck!

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death was one of the first generals I built a commander deck around and I've been tuning mine ever since.

Replacements I would make

  • Replace Dolmen Gate with Reconnaissance since it costs 1 less and also can untap your creatures after damage has been dealt to give them pseudo-vigilance.
  • Replace Angel of Invention with Marionette Master since if you get infinite ETBs on marionette master, you can sac the infinite tokens to deal infinite damage.

Other cards I might suggest

I'm a massive "let's get big creatures into play through Circuitous Routes" fan, and this deck looks great. I regret to say I don't play a bunch of black, so I can't give many suggestions, but I'll give a few card draw/ramp/assorted other value recommendations:

Ashnod's Altar. Free sac outlets are a must include in many lists, and reanimator decks without green to reliably ramp them are definitely in that party. Cards like Carrion Grub that ETB and then have no additional effects basically turn into one-use rocks.

Yawgmoth's Vile Offering. This card is a house, does everything you want to be doing all rolled up into one neat package.

Charcoal Diamond/Fire Diamond. All around good rocks, hit the table early and help you for the rest of the game. Fellwar Stone is an auto-include as well.

Nyx Lotus. Demons have sooooo much black devotion, this card is going to be doing work.

hope this helps!
