Deck Description

Some of these fellas just refuse to stay down!

This is a Budget Deck (BD for short). It is meant primarily for casual play, and its estimated mid value is aimed to land between 10 and 20 US dollars at most. Take this detail into consideration when browsing the deck!

I mostly use MTG Vault for my own private projects nowadays, but feel free to comment or request a deck of your choice. I've loved the Vault so far, and I like that they are still improving on it, as well as I am improving on my English language skills.

So, if you like what you see, consider checking out some of my other budget-y work from the link below.

How to Play

Coilbugs, Skeletons, Creepers... all are friendly critters that just won't stay dead! Utilize their great abilities in order to fuel your powerful effects.

Bone Shards, Deadly Brew and Putrefy grind down enemy creatures constantly, all the while creatures like Connoisseur, Ravenous Squirrel and Fallen Angel bring on the beatdown. Remember that if the need arises, you can also beat down foes with your easily resurrectable pals!

If you have trouble against specific opponents, consider grabbing something from the sideboard. Those cards can help you claim victory in tough spots!

Deck discussion for BD: Graveyard Valuetown

I'm working on a thoughtpicker witch, control deck at the moment, where thoughtpicker witch locks down the opponents deck top if you can keep sacrificing creatures. I've actually managed to lock down a merfolk deck at a modern tournament once.

I currently use stinkweed imp and myr servitor as a sacrifice engine.
Stinkweed imp holds back a lot of aggro, and I remember that I also had a lot of fun games against bridge from below dredge decks.

Thoughtpicker is a nasty suggestion! I'll throw it into the sideboard.

Wouldn't something like Clattering Augur, Dread Wanderer, Gutterbones or Sanitarium Skeleton be better than Jungle Creeper? Ravenous Squirrel and Bloodflow Connoisseur (Carrion Feeder could also be used here) will be the muscles of the deck, so you need cheap creatures to sacrifice and return.

Some other suggestions, that come to my mind:
Smallpox, Tragic Slip, Bloodbriar, Mortician Beetle, Undercity Informer (Convert the deck into a mill-deck)

I know Muktol, I know.

I just wanted to give my pals Jungle Creeper and Durable Coilbug a chance to shine. As a little benefit, Bushmeat Poacher provides a bit more healing this way.

Thank you for your input though. I love that you guys still keep some of this community's activity alive.

I think I see Northy's reasoning-- Jungle Creeper is a 3/3, so it can do more than just chump-block.
(You don't mind if I call you by that, do you?)

I also used to have a "graveyard value" deck of my own, which was centred around Zombie Infestation. Just putting that out there incase it gives ya any inspiration.

First of all, you can call me Northy.
Second, I love the janky idea of spamming zombies via retrieved Jungle Creepers, Durable Coilbugs and Sanitarium Skeletons. I might need to craft another deck soon enough. :D

Once I started warning against the thieves, they did the dumb thing again.
Rather than draw back and observe without taking action, they responded with their signature move.
They've been flooding mtgvault regularly to prevent people from seeing my warnings, and that action speaks volumes of guilt.

However they seem to have lost their cool, because they seem to reuse the same accounts frequently.
They have bursts of covering my warnings, and seem to take longer and longer breaks. Frankly I think they are hit at their pride the most, because why not take a break and look back in half a year to see if I'm still vigilant. Either it's a pride thing or they are lacking money. The corona has shut down magic tournaments for a while, and people have been more at home than usual, so seeing it from a thief's perspective times must be pretty hard by now.

I'm going to throw rocks on the track to derail their train of thought.
They are under pressure, I've kept my surveillance even though I removed "the list" in its public form, and I want to re-open my "wicked web"

I still think I brought them here by embarrassing a lot of people in the Danish meta way back in time.
They've been taking notes on my research in here, then covered it in junk posts so as few people would see it, and then they've launched it as their own work.

That's probably why I found out that the whole corebuild had become mainstream around me, and that also verifies my suspicion that they are operating from a site of their own as well as this one.

Hmph, Wicked, you do seem like you have been carefully spectating the actions of these trolls, but do you actually have a lot of solid proof against their illegal actions? I mean that they do seem to wreak havoc around here which isn't nice, but I'm not completely assured that they are actual criminals.

I understand completely why you find them dangerous: I too think that the worst case scenario is that they get the site shut down because of their pointless shenanigans, but otherwise I do think that the best way to handle them is to leave them be: trolls hate nothing more than being ignored.

I don't want you to lose sleep over some silly goons on this website. I know we both have been around for a long time by now, but constant warring against them is probably going to incite them even more and cause even more problems to this website than before. We can just hope that the moderators come back and find out what's REALLY going on. Until then, I suggest we keep low profile, at least with the trolls.

The deck is now up! Thanks for the idea!

First of all, they coordinate their efforts, trolls are of a more solitary nature.
I've been interacting with them for years in here, and slowly set up a number of behavioral patterns.
I'm sort of planting myself in a spider web and feeling the web vibrate, and when one of the thieves broke down, I extracted a lot of valuable information, in particular three of their names.

It works like this, humans are creatures of habit, and our greatest habit of them all is putting things in context.
When the thieves attacked my reputation as a Danish player, the context showed that the thieves had a personal relation to me somehow, and when the dumbest thief mentioned a particular year, I also knew that the year would have it's own context for the thief, which made me search the web for card theft at 2015, and things sort of aligned themselves. Context is an extreme tool, and I've posted a couple of articles in here about how to read the game and break your own patterns by knowing that people work within a socially created context.

I'll link one if you get curious, but I'm 97% certain that were dealing with thieves here.
I suggest you go to one of my halfdecks and follow the link there, which outlines the way the thieves work in here.
I've extracted the whole thing from interacting with them over the years.

And then there's the incidence where one of the group was actually shadowing me.

Actually the whole thing has an extremely long timeline, in the past I've had some trouble with a thief, which is related to the whole affair. I'll outline it all one day...

Well, even if I do hope these trolls are not actually criminals, I also do hope that your persistence pays off.

Gary was active in here a few days ago, so it's a matter of time before he spots the tag: gary read this on the deck display or reads through the comments in the bug-forum.

I'm basically not watching them anymore, but my mind keeps spotting them.

Here's a small outline of events.

At a time where I believed they were just trolls I revealed the compiled works of "tard", search for decknames with tard to get a grasp of his activities.

This lead to the first war between the trolls and me.

In the second war, where thegreatgodloki freaked out the trolls had reverted to a much older method of trolling, likely because I sort of told them about it to make them fall into another layer of context, which they did.

Except since I knew about the bear theme they had to change an aspect to it.
They also needed access to their old work as well as to burn their bridges, trying to resume new fresh identities to use instead of the old ones I marked.

So they switched to using cards with part of the old keyword in it so they could search for old materials, they used bear, so to track down the past, the new keyword had to contain "bea" while they needed to add a new letter to the keyword. They made it "beas".

Search for cardnames with "beas" then start counting usernames who have decks containing that exact phrase and you will get a pretty clear picture of the current troll accounts.


You flag up twice, but compared with ironiwolf who scores 4, you are nowhere being suspicious.
Mekkakat flags up three times, but he is the most productive of us all, so I sort of use him as the suspicion threshold.

Anyone flagging up more than his 3 points is on my suspicion list.

Now go see how many times the 4 suspects get flagged...

They spam in secrecy, but for those who know they are there, it's pretty easy to get back on their track.

By the way, useraccount flashover flags up 10 times, and he was marking their transition from the old system to the new by spamming a 100+ decks on a friday the 13th.

Their own little celebration :)
