Behold the Beyond Discussion
4 weeks ago
Possible additions could be Behold the Beyond to combine the ability to tutor for cards with a lot of cycle/discard triggers, and Call the Bloodline in order to consistently discard cards while also getting a surprising amount of value. Hope this helps!

Furthermore most tutors increase the power of the deck, as a budget all-star I can recommend Behold the Beyond, which with enough mana lets you win a game on the spot.

I probably should take the modules out. I'm not sure what to switch those with though, maybe another 2 glimmers? The other 6 slots could be for removal/control/search. Behold the Beyond could be ok while in standard, and Hanweir Militia Captain Flip could get me more creatures if I can flip it
I guess trophy mage will be useless in here after I take out the modules. It only lets me search for a fabrication so I'll take it out

Behold the Beyond allows you to tutor for a combo (and you're running reanimator cards so putting stuff in the yard isn't that bad).
Boundless Realms is a card I'd consider as well.
I'm still looking around for cards and ideas for my own non-competitive Gitrog deck.

PookandPie your suggestions are highly appreciated. I'm not sure how, but I forgot that Cabal Coffers and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx existed even though I use them in other commander decks. Expedition Map flew completely under my radar and I'm really grateful that you suggested it. I would run Sanguine Bond, but I played against someone who managed to pull the 2 enchantment combo off, and it wasn't necessarily that fun. So even though it is a win condition I'll leave it out of my deck. Diabolic Revelation is another card that I didn't know existed until you mentioned it, but sadly I was already replacing Behold the Beyond with Demonic Tutor due to the fact that it never saw play even if I drew it, because it cost too much mana and the discard effect is also pretty nasty when you have a good hand.

Behold the Beyond. Its way too much mana for tutoring what? you dont have a 3 card (or less) win con you want to be dropping on separate turns. Lord of Extinction is only really good with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord which you dont have in the deck. i love Lurking Predators but you dont have enough big "this will win the game like, now" creatures to benefit from it. Thats more of a mayael card. Not sure your map is worth keeping, with the speed you can run through the deck. not a big fan of Increasing Ambition just due to targetted graveyard hate. I would much rather you get a creature back like sakura tribe-elder or e-wit than a flashback tutor. Thats all i really see for now, i would have to playtest the deck to find what else might be worth cutting. I have my own meren deck as well, Meren does the stuffs if you want to look at a little more control-built deck

I think One with Nature, Whirler Rogue, Awakening Zone, Behold the Beyond, Shamanic Revelation, Bow of Nylea and Bident of Thassa would all fit your deck very well.
Sundering Vitae is similar to Naturalize, but looks a lot better in the context of your deck.
I am not sure if Downsize, Reclaim, Primal Growth and the 1/1 fliers with no other abilities are quite good enough. Also, in your low curve 2 color deck, Chromatic Lantern seems unnecessary, Simic Signet is probably better if you need the ramp at all. Dissipate is expensive at 3 mana, i would play Unified Will or Arcane Denial instead.
You might want a couple of ways to answer an opponent's creature in case it becomes too threatening. Consider Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Reality Shift, Lignify, Control Magic or Ulvenwald Tracker.

You're welcome! I bought this deck for my wife and she loves it. You may also think about adding dredge creatures just to fill your graveyard a bit more. Examples are Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Grave-Troll, Golgari Thug. I use them plus The Gitrog Monster and Lotleth Troll to form an unassuming combo in which you dredge, hit a land, discard the dredger and dredge again. As long as you hit a land every time you dredge (which isn't hard), you can mill yourself as much as you want, then cast Living Death to get everyone on the battlefield. It's kind of jankey, but she's assembled it several times to great effect.
