Golgari Processing Plant

Land (Mythic Rare)

Golgari Processing Plant enters the battlefield tapped.

, Sacrifice another permanent: Add , , or .

, , Sacrifice Golgari Processing Plant, exile your graveyard: Create a 1/1 black and green Worm creature token for each creature card exiled this way, create a 0/1 green Plant creature token for each land card exiled this way, and create a 1/1 black Rat creature token for each noncreature, nonland card exiled this way.

I'd like to see a card which cares about those three creature types. In any way. Elite Inquisitor , Kaalia of the Vast , Power Word Kill , Animal Sanctuary , Swarmyard , and Boldwyr Intimidator / Kargan Intimidator all show permutations of different multi-tribes, for reference.

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 ?

I would drop the one black/green creature and Vraska - it's not doing enough for you to warrant the extra expense and hassle of a 2 color manabase. Swarmyard is also not doing enough for this deck. If you're set on it, then you need to build in more insects/rats/spiders. You're short 3 cards so we've got a little room to play with, too. The mana curve is... off. So we'll need to work with that. If you're set on keeping the green cards, let me know, and I'll lean harder into the 2 colored options, but things like Phyrexian Obliterator may not be as good.

Epic Downfall does look like a good option. I see what you're doing with Typhoid Rats + Swarmyard , but I'm not sure it's as efficient as you might want it to be. A few more 2 and 3 drops might serve you well. I'll see what I can come up with. I'm also unsure about Torment of Scarabs and if we might not be able to find something better.

Finally we get some squirrel suppport. Currently I'm working on a squirrel deck too - even if i know, that it will be a more... meme-like or fun-deck than somewhat competitive. I saw, you're suggest using Earl of Squirrel , so your playgroup doesn't mind using Silver Bordereds? Then I have a few silver bordered suggestions: Acornelia, Fashionable Filcher - pump effect and cute acorn-counter Squirrel Dealer - Funny card though Squirrel Farm - funny token creator

others: Ivy Lane Denizen - pumps your army

Scurry Oak - can go nuts with Ivy Lane Denizen ... get it? it goes nuts :D

Vanquisher's Banner - anthem and draw effect

Realmwalker - plays Top-cards and counts as a squirrel

Witch's Oven Sac-Outlet and the food-token generates a new Squirrel with Chatterfang

Vivien, Monsters' Advocate - generates Tokens which works well with chatterfang plus tutor-ish effect Sylvan Anthem - Anthem and card quality even on tokens

Swarmyard - regenerates squirrels

Return of the Wildspeaker - extraordinary strong card

Ohran Frostfang - let your opponent choose between trading or to let you draw cards.

Moldervine Reclamation - dying creatures wont hurt you anymore

Mimic Vat - See Moldervine Reclamation but repeatable

Adaptive Automaton - Anthem effect for Squirrels

Beastmaster Ascension - huge anthem

Creakwood Liege - Anthem and token generator

Ezuri's Predation - REmoval which works prett well with tokens

Bramble Sovereign - Because i love this card

BrassLord on Evil Squirrels EDH

@ MTGZero, yeah it's unfortunate... A discussion that'd I'd for sure have with your playgroup is if they allow proxys, and as long as EVERYONE is on the same page, it can be fun! Consider this an advertisement for legacy too, as the $5,000 mana base gatekeeper bars a lot of people from playing a really interesting and fun format!

That being said, working on a budget also is like a balancer of sorts, and is a way to keep the "power level" or whatever you'd like to call it similar! Swarmyard price should also go down as more timespiral is opened (maybe...)

All in all, play how you'd like and play the cards you enjoy, whether competitive or janky! You're on the right start by brewing your first edh deck! And for sure playtest and add/subtract accordingly. Half of the fun of EDH is always tweaking your decks and looking for fun/good cards to add! When evaluating cards, it helps to look at it from the perspective if the card actively wins the game or helps do what I want to do. That being said, sometimes playing jank cards can be extremely satisfying, and people talk about flavorful or cool decks moreso than they do any cEDH turbo decks. All in all, both kinds of decks are fun to play with and against as long as everyone is on the same page! For sure encourage you down the road to brew both ways and give it a try! Good luck!
