If you want to stick with the +1/+1 counter theme a little bit more, maybe one of those too? Scute Mob Mortician Beetle

Devouring Swarm as a sac outlet in combination with Gleancrawler ? So you can sac Bond Beetle and Duskshell Crawler and bring them back for more +1/+1 counters. And you could use Grist, the Hunger Tide last ability to deal even more damage.

Then Iridescent Hornbeetle would also fit better in my opinion.

And Scute Swarm for a never ending swarm of Insects?

Swarm Shambler Is not an Insect but i think it still fits the theme somehow. But it will stop your mill from Grist, the Hunger Tide so it´s maybe not that good.

Swarmyard ?

Obrubnik99 on Budget MonoG Stompy Help!

Hi everyone! So, I'm currently trying to build a Mono Green Stompy deck (for Standard) on a budget (in paper) . Basically as cheap as possible. The power level should be around FNM level.

Fortunately this deck already has a lot of budget parts, basically all of the main creatures like Swarm Shambler , Lovestruck Beast , Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig etc. are pretty cheap. I'm mainly looking for substitutions for these cards:

  1. The Great Henge
  2. Questing Beast
  3. Stonecoil Serpent
  4. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider

What I already kind of figured could work:

The Great Henge is obviously an amazing card that can't really be easily replaced, but I think that Garruk's Uprising could work in it's place. It only draws you cards and only if the creature is big, but anyways, I don't know about a better substitution. Also, running this card meant that I'm playing more 4 power creatures. So for example no Kazandu Mammoth  Flip, because it's a 3/3. Instead more Lovestruck Beast , Old-Growth Troll and Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig .

As for the top of the curve, kind of instead of Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider , I thought maybe Battle Mammoth could work??? I know, it does something completely different, but it is still a big hitter with upsides...

Anyway, what do you think? Tips on cards as substitutions for those listed above and thoughts overall...

You can find the current decklist here: Decklist

Thanks for everything in forehand!

+1 my dude! @your reddit post,

More lands imo. Also more big ramp... seems like Vorinclex is a big target for removal, so ramping up to 15+ mana a turn seems like the way to go.

I think the biggest problem is that you're splitting themes and trying to jam infect. A lot of seemingly powerful cards don't have synergy with the rest of the deck. Only ~12 cards directly create +1/+1 counters. So (eg.) Hardened Scales really does nothing.

...Cut incidental Infect:

-1Viridian Corrupter, -1Spinebiter

-1Phyrexian Swarmlord... I love this card but, even when you're all in on infect it isn't that good...

(I think the other infect cards with 5+ power as soft, 2-card combos with your commmander are viable).

...Cut fatties with no evasion:

-1Renata, Called to the Hunt... if you're interested in playing "go-wide + pump" this could be good, but not better than Bloodspore Thrinax

-1Rampaging Baloths... incidental 4/4s aren't worthwhile

-1Crowned Ceratok... +1Champion of Lambholt

-1Ulvenwald Hydra... no synergy

-1Primordial Hydra... +1Managorger Hydra

When choosing cards ask yourself: (1) Does it work with my commander? (2) Does it work with my theme? (3) Is it strong enough with no synergy to play 1v3? (eg. Rampant Growth, Sylvan Library, etc.)

Happy brewing!

This deck could certainly make use of The Great Henge and maybe even Oran-Rief Ooze.

Swarm Shambler would make a fine 1 drop too.
