Skinrender

Creature — Zombie

When Skinrender enters the battlefield, put three -1/-1 counters on target creature.

pea_body All of your suggested changes sound great! Sounds like you have a pretty good idea of the changes to make :)

As far as the higher mana cards go, I think aiming to run 3x Skinrender and 3x Kulrath Knight (with no Archfiend of Ifnir) is probably a good mix. With your beforementioned killspells added, and around 24 lands, I think you'll be able to easily sustain 6 4-mana cards relatively well.

Black Sun's Zenith is a fine replacement for any of your cards, particularly a good replacement for Archfiend of Ifnir. It becomes an auto-win condition alongside Nest of Scarabs (just through the sheer number of scarabs you can generate from it).

wallisface Thanks for the advice, I have been playing this deck with only Archfiend of Ifnir and often struggle to keep it in play long enough to trigger its ability and should have foreseen the problems of running twelve 4+ mana cost cards.

Obviously, I should change out the 4x Splendid Agony, but would replacing Archfiend of Ifnir with Black Sun's Zenith be an okay change?

In my actual deck at the moment I have Dismember and Tragic Slip to easily kill creatures. I assume that it would be okay if I replace Wasteland Scorpion and Nezumi Bone-Reader with those if I replace Archfiend of Ifnir.

Random card replacements

Again thanks for the ideas! I'm just playing against friends so I can't make it too good if you know what I mean. :)

You only have eight actual cards that put -1/-1 counters on things, and nine other cards that depend on -1/-1 counters in order to do anything. In deck construction terms, it really seems like you have way too many "payoffs" for the amount of "enablers". I'd suggest adding some combination of Grim Affliction, Skinrender, Banewhip Punisher, and Midnight Banshee.

Hey, good to see another player building around -1/-1 counters!! I’ve got my own build here, which has gone done quite a different direction, but i’ve tried to detail the archtypes problems and solutions there.

For your deck, i have the following suggestions:

  • Devoted Druid is better than Channeler Initiate , in that we are guaranteed to get two counter-triggers, and it can provide a lot of fast ramp for a big play on turn 3.

  • Even with a mana dork, I think your land count looks a little too low. Your deck has a lot of 3 & 4 drops, so i’d expect 23-24 lands?

  • Beseech the Queen feels super slow. This archtype is already one that struggles to keep up with the modern meta, I really don’t think we have time to be going off looking for a specific card for the entirety of a turn.

  • I’m suprised you’re running Poison-Tip Archer and Might of the Masses , because they dilute the main plan of profitting from the counters.

  • imo i’d run more Black Sun's Zenith instead of the Blowfly Infestation . The enchant is slow and can backfire, while Black Sun’s can pretty much win the game on the spot if a Nest or Hapatra is in play.

  • I feels like you’ve got too much focus of managing counters on your own stuff, instead of inflicting misery on your opponent. The bug pull for this archtype is enacting our plan sets the opponents plan back - if we’re not actively disrupting we lose some of our benefits. I’m surprised to not see stuff like Fume Spitter , Grind , or Skinrender here.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

I don't know if it was intentional or not but you have quite a few creatures that care about counters. Thus, there might be a place for ways to take advantage of that here. Proliferators including Contagion Clasp , Karn's Bastion , and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician come to mind. Some other zombie cards in that vein might be Carrion Feeder , Skinrender , or Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet . Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is a little awkward with the +1/+1 theme. On one hand, he does dish out more counters when he brings some of your guys back for more action. On the other, his undying buff doesn't even apply to 3 of the deck's biggest hitters (in Diregraf Colossus , Unbreathing Horde , and Noosegraf Mob ). I think the single copy is a fair compromise, but I think testing both more and less would be interesting. If you're only looking to play around the tokens, Death Baron , Cemetery Reaper , and Cryptbreaker have proven effective for me, at least in EDH.

Your card pool actually looks really good, so not too much to say on that aside from getting larger budget cards to replace the worse cheaper ones. Your mana curve, however, is a 2.93, meaning you can afford to cut a couple lands, so you could add in some more spells Strionic Resonator and Skinrender seem pretty good here, but thats my 2 cents. I like the deck, keep up the good work
