Darth_Savage on Beyond the Grave (Mardu)

1 week ago

I feel like this deck is torn in two dirrections, in part because the only knight outside of Haakon, Stromgald Scourge that has any sort of graveyard synergy is Deathless Knight which let's be honest isn't great...

I'm not sure Breathless Knight is designed for a knight deck, rather it would play better with cards like Bloodghast and Nether Traitor both of which are spirits... Alternatively if you just didn't care about tribal synergies Vengevine and Flamewake Phoenix are some obvious go to recurrable threats.

The Circle of Loyalty is just a bad card, honestly 1 Knights' Charge might be better and it's also a bad card...

seshiro_of_the_orochi: Okay, yeah I agree about the anti-synergy of The Cauldron. Probably not worth using since Reassembling Skeleton is such a nice synergy. I've decided to add Heartless Summoning as well now with how good it combos with the outlets.

KBK7101: To add to these, Nether Traitor, Golgari Thug and my favorite lowkey skeleton Dogged Detective also all combo amazingly with sac outlets that generate mana.

Triton on Syr Konrad

I love Syr Konrad! I recently built him and I’m super excited to test the deck out! I’d highly recommend cards like Reassembling Skeleton and Persistent Specimen. If you have the money, Bloodghast, Nether Traitor, and Gravecrawler are also really good cards!

DreadKhan on It's Just a Flesh Wound (Budget Almost-cEDH Meren)

If you like Avenger of Zendikar, Mitotic Slime comes out earlier and will make an astounding number of bodies for you to sacrifice. Underworld Hermit might work as well. You might want to take a look at Demon of Dark Schemes, which can reanimate whatever you want for mana and energy, making it not infinite (you'd need something like Phyrexian Altar or Pitiless Plunderer probably) but very good with a decent amount of lands. I use it as an infinite reanimation source in my Meren deck, where it's -2/-2 effect is also sometimes relevant.

If you want a 'win con' that doesn't involve your Graveyard and only requires you to run a bajillion creatures in your deck, Lurking Predators might be interesting. Even if people only play 1 spell each, that can easily be 1 or 2 creatures for free, and you can scry away chaff. If this sticks around, people can't reasonably play small spells and will struggle to deal with your growing board, and you just keep playing as normal with a free creature or 2 each cycle. I run it with well over 50 creatures, and sometimes all it takes is one player ignoring it to win you the game via free bodies.

Yavimaya Granger is decent, dying the turn after it's cast normally, and will net you a land. It's available to reanimate (to get another land), and it can technically chump for you. Wood Elves is pretty good, but it doesn't die on it's own.

Callous Bloodmage is pretty good value, offering a way to hate on an opponent's graveyard that can alternatively draw you a card or make a Pest, sneakily good card. Nether Traitor is a nice way to get an extra body to sacrifice, it can recur itself.

Neat to see Budget Meren, her decks tend to be pretty pricey, so many people love building Meren.

Epicurus on An Actual Ninja Phoenix Deck

Looks very interesting.

Consider Mortuary Mire to add to the land base. And maybe Bog Witch for ramp.


And surely a lot of other stuff, but I wouldn't want you to detract from your theme to fit them all in.

Also, though, you accidentally put plains on the list instead of swamps.

Massacar on A Teysa-tiful Death

I saw that you're trying to keep this on a budget, so absolutely ignore as much of this as necessary.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Suture Priest, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Phyrexian Tower, Altar of Dementia, Phyrexian Altar, Pawn of Ulamog, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Nether Traitor, Ravenous Chupacabra, Brought Back, Tragic Slip

There's really a lot you can do, so I will leave it here for now.

No matter what you decide to do, I highly recommend cutting Temple of the False God and replacing it with almost any other land, even just another basic. That card is a dead land for the first 4 turns of the game and I personally feel that it's more productive to have something more reliable.

DreadKhan on Marchesa Redirect

This looks pretty impressive, but I'm not 100% on the land count. The difficulty ramping in Mardu somewhat justifies that, but I note your average MV is under 3, which seems a bit low for 38 lands, and your curve drops sharply after 4. Maybe something to keep an eye out for, but I'm sure the deck would work fine as is.

Not sure if something like Nether Traitor or Soltari Visionary might give you a decent body that can retake the Monarchy without much fear. Dauthi Voidwalker is probably the best option of all, since it can also be traded in for a something key.

I'll let you know if I think of anything else, I'm a bit busy atm, but thanks for pointing this out to me!

Guerric on Teysa Karlov, Double Death Budget

4 months ago

Hi Zaromin This looks like a fun deck! Just some ideas- I've run Teysa, Orzhov Scion for many years and there are some similarities. Have you though about Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton, or Bloodghast? The latter might push your budget a little bit, but these are all great because they are self-recycling in and out of the graveyard for more and more death triggers. Also, Teysa, Orzhov Scion herself will give you two spirits for every death trigger for a black creature. She can also be one half of a win con with Darkest Hour with a free sac outlet and one of your many aristocrats out. Also, with all of your small creatures the fabulous new card Welcoming Vampire would be an amazing card draw addition.
