To Elasar99,

Thanks for the comment! Honeslty, Goblin Bombardment+Requiem Angel is a viable combo that could fit into this deck. To be trustful, I didn't add this combo because it just didn't interest me. As well, I feel like Requiem Angel needs a sacrifice outlet to be worth it. I do have Evolutionary Leap, but this deck doesn't have any other scarfice outlet. Let's compare Dragon Broodmother. Brood isn't a combo piece like Requiem Angel. However, Broodmother gets out of hand, without supporting cards, if left alone. Maybe a better comparison would be Terror of the Peaks. Both Terror and Requiem will just sit there without support. However, the support Terror needs is much easier to access, creatures entering the battlefield. Again, it's not a bad combo. I'm just not a fan.

There are a few budget-friendly cards that I can recommend
Commune with Spirits and Kruphix's Insight -> for extra card draw
Control Magic, The Trickster-God's Heist and Corrupted Conscience-> steal the biggest threat on the battlefield
Evolutionary Leap -> kill the frog, draw an enchantress
Druid Class -> play extra lands to make use of all the cards this deck draws
Shigeki, Jukai Visionary -> repeatable ramp on an enchantment creature
Mirrormade -> super versatile card
Ancestral Mask -> can one-shot someone with unblockable commander

Hey, cool list. I think there are a couple of different ways of building Henzie and I feel like you have a couple of different ideas going on here. Here are my thoughts on the different themes you can focus on that synergize with Henzie's abilities:

Cost reduction (making big impactful creature cost as little as possible to cast multiple in a turn every turn) Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Nylea, Keen-Eyed, Cloud Key, The Immortal Sun, Marauding Raptor, Heartless Summoning, Krosan Drover, Goblin Anarchomancer, Semblance Anvil

"Blink" (lots of undying, persist, and plenty of "Feign Death" effects to maximize etb/dies triggers and keep the creatures after blitz) Cauldron of Souls, Conjurer's Closet, Kaya's Ghostform, Supernatural Stamina, Blood for Bones, Undying Malice, Minion's Return, Demonic Gifts, Abnormal Endurance, Unholy Indenture, Return to Action, Fake Your Own Death, Flayer of the Hatebound, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Puppeteer Clique, Woodfall Primus, Murderous Redcap, Faceless Butcher

Value Town (maximize card advantage, keep the cards flowing, recursion, keep non-creature count low) Guardian Project, The Great Henge, Greater Good, Lifeblood Hydra, Demonlord Belzenlok, Gorex, the Tombshell, Deadwood Treefolk, Acolyte of Affliction, Evolutionary Leap

I think doing a combination of these three things is solid, but I'd recommend focusing on one and trying to keep the game plan somewhat focused. My brew leans towards Value Town.

Things in your current list that I'm a little skeptical of:

Sundial of the Infinite I think since Henzie is only giving us a small mana discount, this would just be used as a weird "your creatures have haste". I think you often want to take advantage of the "when this dies, draw" rather than 1+ mana cost reduction.

Deathreap Ritual This doesn't trigger if your creatures are dying in your end step to blitz, creatures need to die before the end step for the Ritual trigger to go on the stack. Even if that wasn't the case, I feel like it's better in decks where you're the one making sure it's triggering on each of your opponents turns. What Henzie is doing doesn't really help with doing that. I feel like Moldervine Reclamation would be similar in concept, but more synergistic once the deck is going (but I also don't think it's worth an inclusion).

Living Death How are you filling your yard? Henzie doesn't get cards into your yard very quickly. I think the is a card that fits better in decks that are doing plenty of looting and self milling. It's very likely the other graveyard players will benefit more than you when you cast this.

Most of your creatures that are less than 4 cmc don't seem like they do enough with Henzie to take a slot. I think you'd be better off if your CMC<4 mana stuff was non-creatures that ramp and/or setup for your game plan. I can understand the sac outlet ones if you're really taking advantage of the instant speed aspect, but most of the time you're having to sac end of turn anyway, so I think it'd be better to take advantage of the better payoff of the non-creature sac outlets (like Evo Leap, Vampiric Rites, the various Altars, Greater Good, etc.) As far as mana dorks, I feel like 2 mana ramp spells will help more in the long run. I don't think Henzie is powerful enough of a turn 2 play to risk losing mana sources to pings and/or wraths.

All that being said, it's great seeing other peoples takes on Henzie. I've certainly gained a bunch from reading your comment on my decklist and thinking critically about yours. I'll try and keep my list updated as I play it more. It's been a blast so far. If I didn't already have a black based "blink" deck I think I'd probably lean Henzie towards that strat. :)

x12721 on First EDH deck: Naya Cheat in Updated

I've found a few cards that may interest you, based on your description. There are a number of enchantments in your colors that function as good sac outlets: Weaponize the Monsters, Barrage of Expendables, and Goblin Bombardment all sacrifice creatures for direct damage, while Fanatical Devotion and Martyr's Cause both provide some sort of protection. If you'd like to stay in green, Evolutionary Leap is about as close as you'll get to Greater Good. As far as other good sac outlets, High Market is an excellent way to crack your eggs, and Spawning Pit is a decent budget Altar effect (as Ashnod's Altar may be a bit expensive. As far as other suggestions, I can't recommend Skullclamp enough (if your budget allows). Changelings are also something to look out for, as they also count as Eggs for your commander. Notably, Maskwood Nexus and Birthing Boughs are both sources of eggs (and the Nexus combos VERY well with your commander) and Mirror Entity is another combo piece for you.

NV_1980 on High Offerings

Hi,

This looks fun! You've probably already figured, but Dockside Extortionist would fit very well in here. Ophiomancer also comes to mind. I think Gisa, Glorious Resurrector is also good for a few chuckles in here.

I would also really opt for some more draw capability as the deck seems to be a bit lacking in that department; like Phyrexian Arena, Deathreap Ritual and especially Evolutionary Leap.

Hope this deck works out for you.

Wkr,

bushido_man96 on Kathril, Nightmare of Indatha [PRIMER]

I've got a Kathril deck myself. I play him by being selective about the creatures that go to the graveyard (with a few mill effects as well), and I like to use sac outlets to get creatures I've cast into the graveyard. There are some good budget options out there that are quite useful, like Fanatical Devotion and Martyr's Cause to name a few. Spells that reap rewards for sacrifice, like Plumb the Forbidden, Village Rites, and Reprocess are very useful for killing off keyword creatures and refilling the hand. I also run Survival of the Fittest, which is great if money isn't an option, along with Evolutionary Leap.

A newer creature that is worth looking into is Oriq Loremage. Does exactly what you want this deck to do.

Good luck moving forward with this deck. I enjoy playing with Kathril.

GrimlockVIII on Muldrotha

I'm not familiar enough with Muldrotha to truly judge your deck or give any recommendations for her (him? I don't know its gender but the name sounds feminine), but I'll try my best.

Is there a specific strategy that you wanted to lean heavily into or did you just wanna make goodstuff.dek with her? I like a few of the neat combos and payoffs you seem to have going on.

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant can help further fuel your graveyard while providing zombie tokens whenever you mill a creature.

Dreadhound and Syr Konrad, the Grim are pretty good payoffs for whenever you sacrifice or mill your creatures.

Other creature tutors you might wanna look into would include Jarad's Orders, Evolutionary Leap, and Fauna Shaman since they all fuel your hand and grave at the same time.
