Thanks for the suggestions!
If I may clarify why I prefer free activation costs: I am using cards such as Mark of Mutiny which don't cost so much, but these are much more expensive: Captivating Crew, Molten Primordial, Mass Mutiny and Mob Rule. Thus, a free sac outlet guarantees that the stolen creatures don't go back to their owners, while freeing my mana which can instead be used for the good cause...

Jan 19, 2018Hi all,Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I would need some help finding great free sacrifice outlets (by free, I mean without any mana to activate), with a good effect resulting from the sacrifice. Here are the specifics:
1- The cards must involve a creature to sac.
2- The casting cost should be as low as possible, say under 4 mana.
3- The colors must involve red, black or green (artifacts also, of course).
4- The card's value should ideally be under 2$.
5- The card must be a permanent.
6- I must be able to sacrifice as many creatures as needed in the same turn (thus, no tapping required).
7- The cards will be played in my Kresh the Bloodbraided deck.
I know the obvious choices such as ashnod's altar, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Carrion Feeder or Goblin Bombardment. I am looking for other cards which might work great with Kresh.
Many thanks for your time and assistance!

Has it ever been efficient as a possible rattlesnake effect?
Nevermind, I just read your post dated Jan. 3rd...
Jan 18, 2018Hi guys,Posted in: Commander (EDH)
It's been a while since I last tweaked the deck. So far, it is going much better, thanks to your help!
I would like your advise about Profane Procession. As soon as I saw it spoiled, I thought it might be interesting to try it in this deck. It is a bit expense at 5 mana to activate (and it does nothing when it enters play), however it could potentially ruin an opponents' plans while providing me with some juicy creatures. In the mid to late game, I could possibly have enough mana to rapidly transform the card within 2 turns or so...
Do you think it deserves a spot?
Jan 17, 2018Above comments provide good insight which I also apply in my deckbuilding. I keep trying new cards to improve a certain deck and put in a EDH binder whichever cards have been removed so I can easily go back and swap them back if I feel they deserve another chance. This binder also contains cards which are on stand-by for the deck. This helps me make the whole process easier.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Hope this helped! Good luck.
Jan 11, 2018Ok, here is another revised version of the deck, after some more fine-tuning.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Jan 11, 2018Thanks for the quick reply, I will give some thought about your suggestions. Although not "free" to activate, both Helm of Possession and Shivan Harvest strongly appeal to me.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Also, what do you think about adding mage slayer? I see it used in some Kresh decklists.
I will test the deck tonight, I am quite curious to see how the latest changes work out.
Jan 11, 2018Hi guys,Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Here is the updated decklist. I believe your helpfull comments have made it much better.
I am still debating what to replace for these cards:
I am also somewhat sceptic about the sacrifice outlets. I wonder if I have enough, but moreso about having a cost to pay for some of the cards, considering that when I steal an opponent's creature, I have to pay a minimum of 3 mana for the various spells/effects. Any recommendations on this point?
Thanks a lot
Jan 9, 2018Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from toctheyounger77 »I'd think twice about adding Varolz the Scar-Striped personally. Others may disagree, but with EDH being a long haul, I'm loath to exile cards from my graveyard unless I absolutely have to. If you're wanting something that gets bigger when things die, there are tons of good options that are more efficient than Varolz
I agree but the initial idea is to use him as another free sac outlet. The Scavenge ability should mostly be used to help close the game IMO. I guess some playtesting will tell if he earns a spot or not.
Jan 9, 2018Hi again,Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Here is the list of cards I am probably adding at the moment:
Could you advise which cards are truly sub-par in my initial decklist? I will remove for sure these: Baloth Null, Bloodfire Colossus, Golgari Rotwurm, Kozilek's Channeler, Scorched Rusalka, Wight of Precinct Six.
Jan 8, 2018Wow, you guys have given me lots of cool ideas! I just don't have any time to tweak the deck right now, but some suggestions will definitely be applied in the new build. I understand that I need more ramp, I will improve accordingly.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I was wondering about the following combo: Grafted Exoskeleton + Chandra's Ignition. Do you think it's worth including the equipment?
Thanks again to all!
Jan 5, 2018Thanks for your helpful hints, although some cards that were suggested are quite pricy. I am trying to stay below 5$ and ideally around 1$-2$ for future updates. I will take sometime during the weekend to refine the deck then post the new list.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
