Epicurus on Mazirek's Nut Sac

19 hours ago

IHATENAMES, I touched on this in a previous comment, but also your edit hit it on the head. This is a squirrel tribal deck that just happens to have Mazirek as the commander. Thus, there's a lot of Mazirek-ey cards out there that there's no room for in here. It's meant for fun more so than competition.

That said, Sifter of Skulls might be helpful late-game, and Neverwinter Dryad is an effective sac outlet if nothing else, so I'll consider them both but don't know what I'd want to lose to add them in.

As for tutors, I own more Demonic Tutors than I have decks to put them in, but this deck doesn't really need them. The one infinite combo in there was accidental, and I don't try to pull it off unless it just kinda happens. Maybe to get to removal cards when I need them, but I'd much rather have that spot in the 99 filled with another removal card than something to fetch one with.

Dread Return is cool, and I'll playtest it. I'm sacrificing Squirrels so crazily as it is. I considered Victimize and Blood for Bones, but couldn't decide what to cut for them.

Cheers!

Suggestions:

More ramp like Neverwinter Dryad to start doing bigger things earlier and that sac trigger or perhaps a creature that can help ramp like Sifter of Skulls it synergies well with your commander

More recursion like Dread Return to help in the long game also a free spell with all your squirrels

perhaps a tutor effect like Mausoleum Secrets or Rushed Rebirth for consistency

carpecanum thanks for the comment! Rogue's Passage is indeed a must! i thought about Palace Siege to, but i cuted it for Gray Merchant of Asphodel since i already have more than one way to recure creature from my graveyard, and the life gain on gray merchant is more relevant in my opinion. Sifter of Skulls is already in my list, and i was wondering which card you would cut for Corpsehatch ?

Rogue's Passage in case your boss gets big enough to end the game. I second the motion for Black Market .

Maybe Palace Siege ?

Corpsehatch , Sifter of Skulls

Nice deck! I'd suggest Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools for Villis,Broker of Blood so as to lower your CMC

As on point Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is for theme, I do believe I'd cut it for No Mercy .

I use Ophiomancer for token generation, as well as Bitterblossom . Sifter of Skulls works well with creatures dying and same with Pawn of Ulamog .

I also built Yawgmoth, Check out The Good Dr. , but did go the way of life loss for creature death. Hope those ideas help!

If you want to make it more competitive, it might not be sexy, but the first and most important thing imo ist to lower the mana curve: For every card, ask yourself if a cheaper card exists that does about the same.

1-Mana Mana Dorks over more expensive stuff. they also fuel Meren really early, which really gets her going

Llanowar Elves

Elvish Mystic

Arbor Elf

Fyndhorn Elves

taking out

Burnished Hart

Rampant Growth

Primal Growth

Sifter of Skulls

I would take out Final Parting and maybe add Green Sun's Zenith , Tutor and mana dork along with Dryad Arbor .

A bit more card draw, for example Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Dark Confidant , Village Rites , Oakhame Adversary

Out:

Golgari Findbroker - too expensive. Meren does, that already

Zulaport Cutthroat - the deck doesn't look like it wins via this, so you don't need it

Blood Artist - same

Syr Konrad, the Grim - same - maybe I underestimate the chip damage from these but I really dislike these Cards, because the don't do anything unless they stay araound for a long time. If you only deal 20 damage to the table with blood artist style cards, which seems generous, you still don't win.

I would rather have a more reliable win condition, a combo to end the game asap or a really powerful value engine, that gives you the staying power, paired with a bit of stax, Mindslicer comes to mind, while you get some kind of beatdown (I like Creakwood Liege , Craterhoof Behemoth with a bit of a board also kill one to two people quite quick) or stuff like a few Kokusho, the Evening Star or Gray Merchant of Asphodel triggers.

Random suggestions Some haymakers like Terastodon , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Protean Hulk to have some good Reanimation targets Cool Utility:

Puppeteer Clique

Bane of Progress

Collector Ouphe

Nature's Claim - my pet card

MortisAngelus on Persist combos

This looks nice, but also overly complex and expensive. You dont need this many persist creatures, especially not a biggie like Restless Apparition and Sifter of Skulls . At the moment when you hit your combo, they dont matter. You want persist with an effect (like murderous redcap). So my suggestion are the following:

Take out all Sifter of Skulls and Restless Apparition , then add 4x Altar of the Brood and 4x Carrion Feeder for an additional sac-outlet.

Also, get rid of all the tap-lands and add Caves of Koilos , Llanowar Wastes and Brushland . Not that I think you need them with all the shocklands you have.

Anyways, looks great and thanks for showing me Vizier of Remedies . That could replace Solemnity or Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit in my own deck.
