These might be too slow in a deck like this but I really liked Crumbling Ashes and Blowfly Infestation as synergy pieces in a -1-1 counter deck I had a while back

Last changes:

Black Sun's Zenith -> Grim Tutor; Crumbling Ashes -> Insidious Dreams Added more tutors, which means more chances to hit the win cons combos

Bontu's Monument -> Jet Medallion Far more efficient for ramp

Whip of Erebos -> Nightmare Shepherd The whip looks better than it actually is. I don't usually attack so the "lifelink" aspect is basically useless. The reanimation effect is too expensive, The Shepherd looks more efficient at what it is supposed to do.

Phyrexian Altar, Tombstone Stairwell -> Ashnod's Altar, Nim Deathmantle The point here is to include an infinite combo with creatures like Sengir Autocrat, Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Chittering Witch. Basically you can keep recasting the creature thanks to the Nim Deathmantle by sacrificing the tokens to the Ashnod's Altar. With a Blood Artist effect on the table is game over. Not the most efficient combo in here, but a solution that may become the backup plan.

This is the closest built from the final version of the deck i had in mind when i started building it. The last two changes would be Phyrexian Arena -> Necropotence and Necroskitter -> Contamination. I don't know If i want to get there because this deck looks pretty good imo as it is now.

LunarFlare on Help! need some major advice!

I would personally go with a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons for some great blockers and Blowfly Infestation for counter spread and Crumbling Ashes for some destroy and Supernatural Stamina makes you do more damage and live Karn's Bastion is a proliferate land so it’s hard to destroy.

My wither/infect deck is Called withering flesh and infected blood if you want to see mine :D :P

Thanks JRaynor! I kinda wish that Kels was Grixis, so I could throw in Vicious Shadows, or some of the R/B Wither creatures.

I do have a -1/-1 counter list with Kels at the helm. It features stuff like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Crumbling Ashes, Blowfly Infestation, Nest of Scarabs and Necroskitter, but it feels less focused than this list. I'll likely revisit it and make it public.

Some good infect cards: Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grafted Exoskeleton, Phyrexian Juggernaut, Blightwidow, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (if you're not on a budget), Inkmoth Nexus, Corpse Cur, Core Prowler, Virulent Wound, and Crumbling Ashes.

If you'd like a common green wincon, that'd be Triumph of the Hordes. A more budget-friendly option is Predatory Focus.

I hope you have fun having no friends! ;]

arrofil on Till the End of Tayam | **PRIMER**

Hey this is a great primer! I've been building a Tayam deck myself though it seems we went pretty different directions with it. I had a few questions and curiosities and would love to get your thoughts / advice if you wouldn't mind.

  1. How well do you feel that the mana dorks add to your ramp as opposed to say, adding more fetches and then recurring them later on?

  2. I'm really interested in some of the higher CMC choices you made - I'm especially curious as to how you feel Meren performs in this deck and whether she's a "must include" for consistency. I''m also intrigued by your inclusion of Shalai, Voice of Plenty, would you think something like Keensight Mentor could also be a good form of getting counters?

  3. My deck had utilized a lot of token generators like Bitterblossom and Pawn of Ulamog for sacrifice based value, yours seems to have a lot fewer and don't have any persist creatures - I'm guessing you still can get a lot of value. Do you think a bunch of token generators may not be really necessary in this sort of deck?

  4. I'd also really like to know how you feel about proliferation cards - I was looking at cards like Pollenbright Druid and Huatli's Raptor to recur for proliferation along with Yawgmoth so I could generate enough counters for Tayam, do you think those are worth the slots, or did your playtesting find that a set up like this generated enough counters for you?

  5. I've also been a bit curious to see if there's some -1/-1 Counter Synergy that could be feasibly worked with Tayam. The big reason for this was I figured you could always remove the counters from your own creatures for the obvious benefit as well as the value of Tayam's ability, and have a card like Hapatra and Nest of Scarabs for tokens or Obelisk Spider, Necroskitter and Crumbling Ashes and Channeler Initiate for other shenanigans to get a lot of value out of it. I'd love to hear what you have to think about that sort of idea. My main thought is that it seems like it'd be fun, but probably not very feasible / consistent.

Once again, really cool deck! Definitely deserving of a +1 and a great source of inspiration!
