Mister_Lich on [Upgraded][C20] Symbiotic Swarm - Ikoria Nightmare

This deck is so nice. Mutate is a weird mechanic, at least in my play circle. Only thing I missed here is ways to sacrifice your own cards, as you can exploit getin' 'em back. Phyrexian Tower , Phyrexian Altar , Fiend Artisan , Birthing Pod or even Yawgmoth, Thran Physician could work nice in this deck. Also, Solemn Simulacrum and Sakura-Tribe Elder can help this deck to ramp faster, specially in combination with Luminous Broodmoth . The demon-goat-cat-thing commander is heavy on mana with his mutate ability. You also can put some "death traps" there and here. Caustic Caterpillar for example. It works very well with the reanimation mechanics. I would take out Sylvan Caryatid , the Defender is a trap, and you can't use Mutate on humans, so Slippery Bogbonder also don't fit. Bassara Tower Archer , Gladecover Scout and Paradise Druid are cheaper options for Hexproof. You will need Hexproof. Nethroi is a huge menace, specially when starts to absorb creatures.

Anyway, good job.

Hey, good start on a budget.

Cards in the maybeboard that are worth adding:

  • Whisper, Blood Liturgist
  • Altar's Reap
  • Costly Plunder
  • Solemn Simulacrum
  • Fleshbag Marauder
  • Apprentice Necromancer
  • In Garruk's Wake
  • Tainted Wood

Possible others:

  • Erebos, Bleak-Hearted
  • Smothering Abomination
  • Acidic Slime

Some budget cards, $1-$2, most are less than $1, at TCGPlayer to consider adding:


More ramp is good with Korvold because it can help to cast him faster and then it can be sac fodder to trigger him.

Some budget lands to consider adding:

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Cool deck!!!
If you want to focus on etb then maybe you are right about trying yarok.
However abzan recursion can be a blast and you have a cool commander pair picked out.
I really like creatures that can be their own sac outlets so they can perpetualy generate value when you recur them, like with ramos or Phyrexian Reclamation .
Some of these creatures are Sakura-Tribe Elder , Caustic Caterpillar , Yavimaya Elder , Restoration Specialist , and Sidisi, Undead Vizier , for example.
Then your deck is less likely get hosed when your opponent plays Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff . Anyway, just something to think about.

Hey, well planned out strategies on a budget. Nice Diabolic Intent :)

Consider Priest of Forgotten Gods and more repeatable token sources? If you can fuel Priest then she's over powered in multiplayer Commander and a great way to grow Korvold and draw. Priest makes insane value with Korvold since for no mana, just sacing two creatures, you make all opponents sac a creature and lose 2 life, you draw three cards, make two black mana and give Korvold two +1/+1 counters. Priest wants a robust package of cards that are repeatable token sources.

Chandra's second 0 loyalty ability + Priest is a combo to be able to activate Priest repeatedly on your turn. The Elementals Chandra creates are saced at your end step meaning they will trigger Korvold and they don't have to attack.


You can speed up game play by adding more one and two drops that have interaction with Korvold or can be reliable ramp to cast him quicker.

Another way to speed up game play is the reduce the number of lands that will always ETB tapped such as Gruul Guildgate .

On a budget Savage and Ancestry are exceptions, but they can make one color of the three Jund colors, that's worth it.

I offer more advice, including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

RA_HORAKHTE on Plunder the Sickness Part 2: Infectious Boogaloo

Hi Jagd_Tallgeese, nice Meren deck, and very different to the basic decklist many people usually have, keep it going!!!

I also play Meren of Clan Nel Toth since it came out in 2015, (but just the normal Meren sacrifice engine toolbox version)

Important things I see you could improve to make the deck more efficient while keeping your original infect version. For example, Commander's Sphere may look OK in any other deck, but what if you change it for something like Dawntreader Elk or Wood Elves ? you will ramp too, but also can use those creatures as sacrifice fodder, recover them from the graveyard... same with Go for the Throat , instead you could use a creature like Ravenous Chupacabra , and abuse of it dying and returning multiple times... and so with as much as non creature cards in the deck. Some like the altars are awesome, you should keep them. Also, remember that you are running cards like Living Dead, you should abuse of as many creatures as posible, to reanimate tons of them!

Maybe my deck can help you, I keep in mind you want an Infect build, so just take ideas in the non infect part of the deck (ramp/removal/card draw, etc): MEREN: THE NATURE'S CYCLE OF LIFE AND DEATH

Now, thinking on infect, you could add the new Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider : He doesn't infect per se, but will do two important things: Double Meren Experience counters, and double enemy infect counters. And is flavor win since he is a phyrexian.

More suggestions for the deck base (mana/removal/advantage) just to name them:

Spore Frog (Just broken with Meren. Some players even prefer not use it for considering it unfair)

Apprentice Necromancer (Surprise infect with haste! And another sacrifice engine)

Fauna Shaman (Fill your graveyard to reanimate later, while you search a ramp creature, a removal creature or in your case, your best infect creatures!)

Fiend Artisan and Birthing Pod (Similars to fauna shaman, but are a sacrifice engines ideal for Meren experience)

Caustic Caterpillar , Reclamation Sage (Removals in a creature)

Victimize (In other deck, nice. In Meren, broken. Also, think in the synergy with something like your skullwinder or your Eternal witness)

Phyrexian Tower Is powerful, will give you mana and sacrifice engine, but most important: Is phyrexian flavor for infect.

I have a few opinions to share

I'd love to see a primer, but I know how hard they can be. My suggestion is just take it slow, update it only once and a while when the fancy strikes, and have a good time. Love the deck

Also this page kind of destroyed my computer... intense code you have here

Other than that, reducing stax effects, like Eidolon of Rhetoric could lower the power level of your deck.

Also there are some cards I can think of that you could look at that would help lower the power level while still being fun and I would say powerful: Caustic Caterpillar, Vivien's Arkbow, Spore Frog, and Greenseeker.

Thanks for the advice. I took your suggestions into consideration and although I did already have Eternal Witness in the list I added the others. As well as Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle. I removed Viridian Zealot for Caustic Caterpillar, Caller of the Pack for Sakura-Tribe Elder, Raving Dead for Plaguecrafter, and honestly can't remember what for Viscera Seer lol. Geth, Lord of the Vault's utility at getting opponents artifacts and creature made him hard to part with and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief being able to kill indestructible but I'm always open to more suggestions and thank you for taking your time to help.
