Phyrexian Dreadnought and Death's Shadow work great in Varolz, though they aren't the cheapest cards to acquire. Force of Savagery, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Hunted Troll, Hunted Horror, Groundbreaker, and Nyxathid are reasonable cards to scavenge, though some are harder to get into your graveyard.

Corpsejack Menace, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Hardened Scales, and Retribution of the Ancients all play nicely with +1/+1 counters.

You are playing a green commander that can be quite aggressive. Therefore, you should be playing Rancor.

I'd probably try to play closer to 37 lands with Varolz.

If Worldslayer has a place anywhere in the format, it's in a Varolz deck, since you can regenerate him to survive the first boardwipe (possibly more, depending on whether you make tokens or blow up the Worldslayer in response to the damage trigger).

Blood Seeker > Tresspasser's Curse, though neither card is very good (unless you're hosing a specific combo).

Fertile Ground > Gift of Paradise.

Prey Upon > Cartouche of Strength.

Polluted Mire > Cartouche of Ambition. There are hundreds of other cards I could list here, but I'd rather have a land that cycles in a format where you never stop wanting to hit land drops than this cartouche.

Victim of Night/Go for the Throat > Reave Soul.

Silence the Believers > Edifice of Authority.

Basilisk Collar/Gorgon Flail/Gorgon's Head > Sultai Runemark.

You should really cut all your Ironshell Beetle variants. Run cards like Satyr Wayfinder, Elvish Visionary, Golgari Brownscale, Shambling Shell, or Yavimaya Elder instead.

Golgari Signet > Golgari Cluestone.

Lull > Haze of Pollen, though I would advise against running either card.

Nature's Claim > Natural State.

Sword of the Animist > Explorer's Scope.

I like Inspiring Call more than Destined // Lead, but the two aren't nearly as comparable as some of the other cards listed.

Giant Growth > Shed Weakness, though I wouldn't recommend running either card.

Seal of Doom > Spidery Grasp.

Wickerbough Elder > Springsage Ritual.

You have a lot of creature slots that are due for upgrades.

I think I'd up Blood Seeker to a full set and cut Trespasser's Curse - that will bring in more life from the Soul Sisters and will give you an extra body on the battlefield. Also, it will work better than the Curse or Blood Artist when playing with 3+ players.

As long as you're doing monoblack with lots of black devotion and Swamps, I would also recommend Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Nightmare, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Nightmare Lash, Squelching Leeches, Abhorrent Overlord, Erebos, God of the Dead, Mogis's Marauder, and Sanguimancy.

A few random suggestions that do well in monoblack EDH are Dictate of Erebos, Vampire Hexmage, Necropolis Regent, Blood Seeker, and Thief of Blood.

I think you would have a lot of success in this deck if you made it a little more Voltron-y around Drana. ★★★☆☆ Let me know what you think of the suggestions. Good luck.

Thank you! Blood Seeker is perfect.

MatthijsTreuren on No tokens for you

Maybe something like Blood Seeker could help this, the tokens enter the battlefield before they die because of the -1/-1 counters, so why not take advantage of that. With CMC of 2 it fits right in your deck.

Kalastria Highborn -> Blood Seeker

KH is a good token maker, but BS is great against all the token/creature copy decks in my meta, and maybe in general in EDH.

acht_deck_manager on What life?

Just some thoughts in case they help build off of what Immortalized said or provide any other useful things to look at:

Draw

There are a lot of other draw cards too that you might consider:

And countless more. In a deck like this though there's a lot of value to be had in something like Phyrexian Arena since 1 life per upkeep is no biggie with Oloro around

Removal

Here's some other good removal to think about:

Slow Down Taxes

Here are some cards that can really halt your opponent's aggression:

Taxing Creatures

Some other creatures worth mentioning that tax an opponent's life:

Other Notables

Here's some other cards that are worth noting:

  • Pristine Talisman combos well if you have Oloro out (Tap to gain life, spend the mana to draw the card and cost each opponent 1 life)
  • Baleful Strix can be great utility in this kind of deck
  • Reliquary Tower Is always great in draw decks

Additional Thoughts

One card I'd definitely recommend ditching is Azor's Elocutors.

Other cards I see that I'd consider removing if it was me:

I used to play an Oloro deck as well (albeit it with a very different affinity ) using a ton more artifacts and some fun combinations around Darksteel Forge and Nevinyrral's Disk . He's a great commander and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy the deck and can find something useful in any of my suggestions.

Good luck and happy hunting!
