Creature — Fungus

RNR_Gaming thank you, you can recomend cards from any format, im building this casually I just want to see how good a deck i can make for Deathbonnet Sprout  Flip Heirloom Mirror  Flip without any ban lists or formats in mind. In my play group we don't really have a format we just build 60 card decks with any cards we want in them, trying to make the must optimized deck possible

Btw Orcus, Prince of Undeath is not a good example, is to slow and needs to much mana, im going to make the deck in golgari colors.

Some thoughts:

  • your build-around creatures of Deathbonnet Sprout  Flip and Heirloom Mirror  Flip are both incredibly slow cards to get running, so I think you want to be aiming this deck to be something more midrange-orientated than aggro (as a lot of decks will outspeed this interaction). Luckily you're in the right colour-pair for a very interactive and midrange style deck (more on suggestions around this below).

  • Both Jadelight Ranger and Merfolk Branchwalker seem like really bad options here, as they don't particularly help enable anything you're doing. Some better options could be as so: Eternal Scourge feels strong here in that your build-around creatures can exile it, but then it can still be cast, and the process can be repeated, helping you in long grindy matchups. Creatures like Demon's Disciple, Fleshbag Marauder, Abyssal Gatekeeper and Plaguecrafter all seem useful too, for both providing needed interaction to slow down the opponent, while also filling your graveyard with their juicy corpses ready for consumption.

  • I would really, strongly, suggest against you trying to run Orcus, Prince of Undeath in this deck. Him being red is going to push you into three colours, and trying to build a 3-colour deck on a budget while still having it function isn't easy. Secondly, it just demands an insane quantity of mana. For 5 mana he'll get you back a single 1cmc creature... that's pretty lame - without dedicated ramp he's just not going to perform well. I think you have a better chance of making something viable by keeping your plan simple, and that means ditching this guy.

  • I think Call of the Death-Dweller is a decent card to include in the deck, but don't bother with Gruesome Menagerie. It's a LOT of mana and is probably going to cause more deck building restrictions than actually help you out.

Just brainstorming here, but something like the below feels viable to me. Your meta and/or tastes may vary (the list I've built here is with Modern-legality in mind, just because that's the format I know best. Also tried to stay with budget cards) It centralizes around the Sprout and Mirror, but also abuses creature sacrifice with Glissa to accelerate your gameplan, and get Mirrors back if needed:

If I'm seeing this right, you're trying to get Deathbonnet Sprout  Flip transformed quickly, and Heirloom Mirror  Flip is the primary way to do that. Once that's done, you want to use Orcus, Prince of Undeath to bring back the low-cost creatures that flipped Sprout.

Dredge cards, like Greater Mossdog, can fill your graveyard quickly with discard and draw effects like Insolent Neonate or Faithless Looting.

Potential sequence:

T1 Deathbonnet Sprout, T2 Insolent Neonate, sacrifice Neonate and discard Greater Mossdog, then dredge Mossdog back to your hand instead of drawing. You now have five cards in your graveyard, so if you have a high enough concentration of creatures, there's a good chance you can transform Sprout on turn 2.

I would also consider some mana creatures: Wild Cantor, Llanowar Elves, or Elves of Deep Shadow for some thoughts.

So in the new expansion i saw 2 cards that peaked my interest Deathbonnet Sprout  Flip and Heirloom Mirror  Flip i think these two could make a really fun deck to play, here is the deck list(not finished and is going to change a lot) deck: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jund-graveyard-deathbonnet-heirloom-mirror/ heirloom helps bonnet transform and could be a way to put cards into the graveyard, and bonnet is one mana 1/1 that turns into a 4/4. right now i want a shell where they could work together, recomend me any cards,from any format or eracuz i want to make the most optimized list i can, as long as they aren't very expensive. i want things i could discard with heirloom and things that take advantage of the graveyard, but i would also want to have some type reanimation in case all my good cards end up in a graveyard and have no way of getting them back.

A cool creature i saw was Orcus, Prince of Undeath that maybe would work as an end game play.

Thank you a lot
