Unfortunately I don't own a Earthcraft to make it "completely" Squirrel Tribal for the other infinite Squirrel token combo so I figured Ivy Lane Denizen with Scurry Oak was the next best thing. Decided to go a Voltron route with this but I'm concerned about the -X on Chatterfang's last ability killing him off before he's able to do any serious damage. That's why I included Blade of the Bloodchief, Necrosynthesis, and Sadistic Glee so that the +1/+1 counters helps cancel out the -X on his toughness when you use Chatterfang to target himself giving him +X/-X where X is equal to the amount of Squirrels sacrificed. Since the +1/+1 counters help cancel out the -X on his toughness he can still swing for 21 or more Commander damage without actually dying to his own ability.
Upon further brewing this deck the amount of synergy it has with a Aristocratic theme you'd normally see in Orzhov was too good to pass up in a guild that rarely centers itself around that kind of strategy arguably focusing around -1/-1 counters with Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Treasure tokens are perfect for generating Squirrel tokens with Chatterfang is perfect since I didn't want to mix other tribes aside from Squirrels in this deck to get the results I wanted because I have this weird habit of creature token tribe consistency. Unfortunately I had to add Elf Warrior and Spawn tokens. This build also runs various combos that helps play into what Chatterfang, Squirrel General wants to accomplish:
Rot Hulk 5BB
Creature - Zombie
When Rot Hulk enters the battlefield, return up to X target Zombie cards from your
graveyard to the battlefield, where X is the number of opponents you have.
I'd like to dedicate this deck to my late friend Richard who sadly passed away from complications of diabetes. He will be sadly missed as he was a lover of squirrels as much as I and an avid Dungeons & Dragons player at one of the Local Game Stores (LGSs) I frequent. He always told me that he'd be interested in building a Squirrel deck in EDH / Commander and I'm humbly honored to carry out this MTG pet project for him.
Any help, advice, and / or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
