I need some cheap mana beater creature for Abzan midrange which won't kill me or is not Tarmogoyf because money (also don't want to waste 75$ for creature that die to Fatal Push.

In my list is already 4x Grim Flayer and 2x Scavenging Ooze

Anafenza, the Foremost seems fitting. Or, if being a sink isn't too bad, why noch Rakshasa Deathdealer?

I thought about Knight of the Reliquary but how to make her atleast 5/5 turn 3 if I don't cout fetches.

Maybe try a land-heavy deck and a playset Noose Constrictor? Add some Life from the Loam and you'll have a pretty big knight.

I dont even think that you need more cheap creatures. You already have some and a lot of early Interuptions which should be enough I think.

Fleecemane Lion has a good body and upside in the lategame.

Tireless Tracker is an awesome card that also gives you card advantage.

Qasali Pridemage is a pretty good card to maybe as a one or two of (one main one side is also an option of course)

Greenwheel Liberator looks interesting but what about that 3-cost creatures? Are there any what can be like 5/5 for 3 and don't need any special requirements?

Hangarback Walker is a good one, as is Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Hangarback is pretty cheap though

Hangarback Walker seems like the best option for today.

But he is still too slow i guess copared for example to Loxodon Smiter.

Ammit Eternal is a cmc 3 5/5 creature with some upside and an abusable drawback.

After looking at your deck, i must insist on zombie croc being a viable option. That synergy with anafenza is cool.

What do you think about Doran, the Siege Tower?
