Deck Description

A deck focused on Insects with a secondary theme of sacrifice. My original version of this deck swarms well sometimes, but I'm looking for more regularity in its overall capabilities. The initial theme was more dedicated to the +1/+1 counter generation, but does not have the endurance and recursion I would like.

The deck list will stay mostly as-is until more pertinent cards are released (Grist, the Hunger Tide being one such), but I welcome suggestions as long as they are within a budget limit of $5 USD.

How to Play

A few different options:

1. Play as a grave mill deck for better access. Many cards enable self mill and graveyard recursion plus death effects, such as Foster, to synergize with other LTB cards. Use this to pump up beefy options and create swarms for chump actions.

2. Go all out sacrifice for control purposes. Probably the most favored mechanic, sacrifice plays largely into Mazirek and many other cards to achieve better win conditions. Use sacrifice and recursion to create turn-by-turn loops and maintain the board state for better attack opportunities.
