Plaguecrafter Discussion

TheSimikBOat on Yahenni, putting the Party in Partisan

I think that you can try to add here some symmetrical sacrifice effects like Plaguecrafter , Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner to help you to sacrifice things and also fight your opponent's creatures.

Bababad on Feast without Fathom

I will certainly keep those in mind.

last night got to test this version about 7 times and surprisingly came away with 4 wins. 2 of them were hitting Murderous Redcap with henge out to draw my a sac outlet...then after the cleanup discard resolved I won on the next upkeep with infinite damage.

Dockside Extortionist is an absolute beast with recursion. gave me excessively big turns with Strands of Night . handed me a commander damage win con due to it.

the other surprise all star was Nesting Dragon with either recursion outlets running. swarming opponents with optional firebreathing dorks with little to no real investment is amazing.

I tend to not tutor for combo based wins, so likely gonna stick with the 3 enablers for now since they are all really effective even without the combo.

tweaks: Berserk , Sylvan Library , Cream of the Crop , Plaguecrafter (and possibly Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner )and Artifact Mutation are on the top of my mind to add for a smoother curve. Dictate of Erebos seems far more at home than I previously believed. the deck was far more interactive than I expected for an alpha.

You can Also add a lot more card draw in order to make this deck really turn. I would recommend cards like Syr Konrad, the Grim For finishers and more cards that bin things like Perpetual Timepiece to A) save your graveyard in case of a Bojuka Bog and B) to help mill cards to start the value engine. I also think that you need to add more cards like your Fleshbag Marauder , Add Plaguecrafter . More cards like either Sidisi, Brood Tyrant would add lots of power to this deck. Take out cards that agro, The Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck is more a value engine that grinds people down.

DSquirrel on hows my sac taste?

6 days ago

Plaguecrafter is straight up better the Fleshbag Marauder

Spore Frog is in most Meren decks, so hard not to suggest it

Riftsweeper is a card i would suggest heavily as it can help with a weakness of the strategy. saved me in a recent game so i might be biased.

with urborg out you can get a lot of value from a Cabal Stronghold

Terramorphic Expanse will act as a second evolving wilds in the deck which will be another card draw and counter on your commander.

Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner have the same effect as your Plaguecrafter

Spawning Pit is a free sac outlet to toss your creatures to that can even produce some tokens.

Vampiric Rites will pretty much be a sac outlet to draw you two cards and Attrition can turn a sac into a removal as well as drawing a card.

Dreadhorde Invasion , Tendershoot Dryad , and Awakening Zone are all ways to get you some more sac outlet fodder during your upkeep with the later making tokens that can even sacrifice themselves.

DSquirrel on Golgari Graveyard

Merciless Executioner , Fleshbag Marauder and Plaguecrafter are great for experience points and dealing with non token decks

Glowspore Shaman is good for selfmill and can grab a land.

Golgari Findbroker can help get an artifact, enchantment or land out of the graveyard.

Deadbridge Chant is nice in recursion decks but can be a bit too random for some people.

Altar of Dementia and Ashnod's Altar are great free sacrifice outlets if you can fit them in you budget

Poison-Tip Archer and Vindictive Vampire are budget extras for additional drain

Mana rocks like Golgari Signet , Golgari Locket , Golgari Cluestone , Mana Geode are always important to help cast bigger spells early. and if you can put in a Sol Ring

MoonHollow124 on Chainer, Nightmare Adept

1 month ago

So I was mucking about with the Anje precon and I decided to play with Chainer, Nightmare Adept . And it was fantastic. Just a precon with a few better lands and a new commander. Now I want to build a chainer deck that is a staxy, nasty, wrathy deck where I play a Plaguecrafter / Fleshbag Marauder / Merciless Executioner over and over and just keep my opponents off of creatures. So I'm doing that. What do I do to win/keep the destruction rolling after they can play 2+ creatures a turn? (I'm playing Dictate of Erebos ). I also want a handful of madness cards just because you can cast them off of Chainer. Probably a handful of the best. I have a bunch of them because I have the precon. Any suggestions for the deck?
