Rite of Consumption, Tend the Pests, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Feed the Pack

Tend the Pests especially because its an instant that can react to an opponents removal.

If you need to bring the price down you have a couple $5 lands that could be replaced easily. Basics or even cheap guildgates work in a two color deck.

Fractal Harness to add counters.

Misconception on Aren't You Getting a Little Briared?

Hi! I really like your take on one of my fav commanders of all time :) Don't mind me taking a thing or two for my own brew. I'm especially fond of your Scepter of Celebration

A little food for thought:

Aspect of Mongoose is a card I usually really like, but in a voltron-y deck it seems like a bad choice as it disables your own spells you would usually target Skullbriar with. How about running Canopy Cover instead?

Often I feel like aggro strategies suffer a lot mid- to lategame if lacking card draw. Some additional cheap, but reliable options are Snake Umbra, Rishkar's Expertise and Mask of Griselbrand

If you want a lategame finisher to possibly take out everyone at the same time: Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord does it.

Feel free to check out Skullbriar, the Walking Grave | The Terminator !

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is fun but suffers from poor synnergy with the infect stipulation since it is life loss & not damage again.

This talk of "printing legendaries that makes other invalid" is ridiculous.

This is a casual format. The main draw, the primary attraction, to this format is that there isn't a wrong way to do it as long as you're having fun. I play Savra, Queen of the Golgari because I enjoy her, even though Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest exist. None of them made her invalid as a strategy.

There's this weird feeling in the room like everyone wants to min/max their casual commander decks, and it's that idea - that there's a wrong way to play, and "why would you play X when Y exists" - that's actually toxic to the format. It's not about the new cards. A new card ALWAYS gives MORE options, not fewer. And as much as I may miss the "specialness" of getting the once-a-year precon sets, greater access to this game in the form of more cheap commanders and more preconstructed decks is a feature, not a bug.

Some thoughts:

  • both Grave Pact and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord seem to be going against your strategy of being a fast aggro deck - and both will be particularly hard to cast with 17 lands (especially Jared, having soo few green sources outside of treasure). I think these cards will slow you down more than they will help you.

  • I’m also unconvinced that any of Gather the Pack, Village Rites, or Deadly Dispute help you play aggressively. I would think that these slots would be better suited towards being more quick threats, rather than slowly looking through your deck for stuff.

  • You have almost no reason to run green, especially as i’m not convinced any of your current green choices are worth running (there is Hardened Scales, but i’m not sure its worth splashing a whole colour for). Have you considered swapping green out for red instead, to give you access to Dreadhorde Butcher and Lightning Bolt?

  • Bone Shards should be better than Eaten Alive as it lets you pitch cards from hand. However, it feels like Fatal Push is just the best option here.

Okay so I'm new to deckbuilding, especially for EDH so I'm just wondering if anyone has any useful/practical suggestions for this deck. I thought Abomination of Llanowar was a cool card, so I wanted to build around that concept of getting a lot of elves onto the field and my graveyard to really boost its power and toughness.

One thing I'll mention is that, with the exception of cards that are already present in the deck, I don't want to spend more then $3-5 on a single card. So keeping all of this in mind, any suggestions?
