Rotting Regisaur Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hey! I really like your list! While undoubtedly less powerful than mine, you haven't distorted the general idea of the deck. The budget inclusions you have made are all very accurate. Here are a few specific suggestions:
Mindshrieker is very random and not enough reliable, although it can be fun.
I would remove every single land that comes into play tapped and replace them with basic lands. You don't need too much mana fixing, especially considering Lazav requires colourless mana, and this strategy cannot afford the tempo loss of a land entering the battlefield tapped.
I wouldn't bother with Miscast, as it doesn't scale particularly well in Commander. Rotting Regisaur can be included in your current list, considering you are not running Dreadnought. Access Tunnel is okayish. Four mana total is a lot, but it's better than Rogue's Passage. I would consider it, especially since it comes into play untapped.
Regarding how well I think your deck would perform in a mid-high power setting, it depends. See, this strategy is very fast and all-in because it is very weak at its core. A Voltron deck that relies on the graveyard suffers a lot from both creature and graveyard removal. That's why my deck is so fast, with cheap win conditions and cheap tutors. Because you need to kill your opponents before they can stop your game plan. If you cut all the powerful cards (which are, unfortunately, the most expensive) and replace them with more expensive (in terms of mana) versions, the deck will become significantly slower and thus much easier to stop. So, if your meta tends more towards the mid power-level, I think you deck can stand a chance. But if your play environment is more on the powerful side, I think you should adjust your deck accordingly.
Proxying a few key cards would drastically affect the power level of the deck. Phyrexian Dreadnought in particular is irreplaceable and its inclusion would completely change the way the deck plays. The tutors would also help a lot bring up the power level.

Hey, I made a super budget version of the deck and was wondering if you could point out any bad cards I added or better cards I missed. How well do you think this deck could perform in a mid-high powered setting, and how much proxying a few key cards like dreadnaught could increase the power, https://www.moxfield.com/decks/--h1Uj0KfEaxIJOCLD16XQ
Also wondering what you think of a few cards
Miscast is this just better than other countermagic i added?
Rotting Regisaur cheaper nyxathid, which i cut, should i add it back in or just double down on the main combos
Access Tunnel is it too expensive to activate

i second Unearth as a must run. it brigs back skaab constantly, id also run Egon, God of Death Flip his face side is another solid beater (like skaab) but most importantly he's also a solid turn one mill engin. he's also targetable with unearth which is nice. Rotting Regisaur also fits in this bracket
considering your tying to get down the big fatties, id also look at some protection for them. Stubborn Denial seems pretty well suited to the deck.
theres also probably an argumnet for more of a controling them with the deck Rotting Rats style. with skaab being the midrange wincon.
another possibility for the deck is Narfi, Betrayer King ok weird i know. but hes a relevant lord, an easiy reanimate target that's instant speed. and he's legendary so multiples i the gy are solid exile targets.
finaly you now have access to Persist as a secondary game plan. reanimate big stuff is pretty much what this card is made for,

I don't think there is room in this deck for Rotting Regisaur
Sold card though! So I stayed up late making this deck for that card!
It's not really budget and this is the first draft, but I won a few times on MTGO

Rotting Regisaur would be good as a 1 or 2 of. It isn't an elemental, but having a big body that stays on the battlefield can be really nice, especially when it works with Unearth and Call of the Death-Dweller. The discard also isn't that bad with all the reanimation. I've had a few games where I would have lost if it weren't for Rotting Regisaur.

I think it would be a good idea to cut the Stitcher's Suppliers, Gurmag Anglers, and Rotting Regisaurs to add in Nantuko Husk and Plague Belcher. Those two cards in addition to Liliana, Untouched By Death's -3 + Shambling Ghast make an infinite combo that can win you the game. You could play around w/ the numbers of inclusion for the suggested cards. I'd probably want more Husks and fewer Belchers since the Husks have more utility overall. Plus you could add in more Shamblers, Lilianas, and maybe some Death Barons as well.

I took out Life from the Loam because it seemed sooomewhat narrow (has an infinite combo with Bone Miser + Discard Outlet), but it's still playable. I've found that Rishkar's Expertise is just too slow, and has the downside of being green (can't be easily cast off Bone Miser or Sacrifice). Ad Nauseam costs less, is black, and can be cast at instant speed (a virtue that I have been neglecting for too long).
Hmm. Would you enlighten me on combos that Fain provides?
Necrotic Wound might be good in other builds, but I find that my particular build doesn't have a lot of cards in the yard at any moment in time (unless I'm going off).
Thanks for stopping by!

I know it’s been four years since you touched this deck, but if you have trouble keeping cards in hand Blood Scrivener has been helpful to me, and it pairs well with Rotting Regisaur , if you have an empty hand at your turn you’ll draw two and not discard anything since the regisaur’s ability triggers before you draw.
Love a fun zombie deck, +1 from me!
