The Thrull Is Gone - Endrek $40 Budget Control

Commander / EDH Control Discard Mono-Black Suicide Black Tokens




The #1 Endrek Sahr deck on TappedOut!


This deck has gone through many changes. It started out extremely budget, but as I gained more cards, it turned into a pricier goodstuff control which I have now made into:


Now I am bringing it back to basics. Endrek loves making Thrull babies and using them to control the game. Most other Endrek decks you'll find sac Thrulls to pump up creatures and swing for the win but I wanted to make it a little more frustrating on my opponents.

In my ongoing endeavor to bring frugality to Commander, each card in this deck is under $2 and the whole deck is under $40 (not including the commander). If you like what you see, UPVOTE! or you can check out all my other $40 budget decks. If you see some areas of improvement, let me know what you'd change. Just make sure all suggested cards are under $2.

Step 1 = Play smaller creatures to chump block while you wait for Endrek

Step 2 = Play Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and start making Thrull babies

Step 3 = Sac your Thrulls and use the discard subtheme to control the board and win the war of attrition

Ophiomancer + Viscera Seer = Scry every turn

Ophiomancer + Spawning Pit = Get a counter each turn

Ophiomancer + Possessed Portal = No need to discard or sac anything important

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder + Tar Fiend = Get a 16/16 and make an opponent discard 6

Carnage Altar + Ashnod's Altar = Pay and sac 2 Thrulls for a card

1) Creature damage from big demons and/or Thrull tokens

2) Damage over time from things like Shrieking Affliction, Hecatomb or Blood Artist

3) A big late game Exsanguinate

4) Infect from Flesh-Eater Imp

I love the challenge of building really cheap decks. This is how the majority of my real life decks start out and then I improve them over time.
