Boneyard Wurm Discussion

hi TheBooman i would definately suggest my older non-combo build.
Basically a self-mill deck packed lots of creatures like Boneyard Wurm,Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord,Splinterfright,Kessig Cagebreakers,Izoni, Thousand-Eyed,Hallowed Spiritkeeper and of course Brawn.
Other than that i don't have a good idea because i am actaully trying to improve the combo and those cards although really good they are a little slow for my playgroup.

You don't need Rancor. You've got Splinterfright.

Keep it simple. Get cards in the grave. Play cheap big creatures that put Tarmogoyf to shame. Use your creatures to take care of whatever problems you have.

4 Hedron Crab 4 Stitcher's Supplier, 4 Satyr Wayfinder Wayfinder is better. You want that land in your hand or on the battlefield. You don't want a dead draw into a land. You need to draw fuel.

Artisan Fiend, Spinterfright and Nighthowler can all be snatched by Unearth. So...

4 Artisan Fiend 4 Splinterfright (your trampler) 3-4 Nighthowler, 4 Unearth

If you want to use Claim for redundancy, +4 Tarmogoyf or the +4 Boneyard Wurm. Myself, I like a little p/t in case they Relic or RIP. Keep it around til you get your answer. Maybe Grim Flayer? But if you play more 1-2cc ETB's, I could see more Claim. Try a 1 of Call of the Death-Dweller.

You've got all these cheap creatures in your deck. 2 Lazav, the Multifarious. Need answers? Eldritch Evolution, 2 Neoform

What are your problems? Creatures. Artifacts. Enchantments. 1 Plague Engineer 2 Plaguecrafter 1 Reclamation Sage 1 Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Nameless Inversion Thrashing Brontodon
Costs three but he's got a 3/4 body so why not?

4 Force of Negation out of the side. You may want to board in 4 Force of Negation for RIP. I don't know how else you're going to beat it without a counterspell with Flashback. Play some number of Life from the Loam with Raven's Crime.

Late game shenanigans: Sidisi, Brood Tyrant or you could Neoform/Eldritch sooner. Genesis because that's awesome. Alt win: Laboratory Maniac

I don't know. Keep it together. Streamline the idea because the deck you'll be playing against, people have refined it to hell the past few years.

Side note - You can Collected Company these creatures. Imagine that. Not so good idea Nightmare Shepherd. Eh idea Creeping Chill Maybe out of the side? Burn is real.

Looks really good for your first EDH deck!

Few suggestions Idk your budget limit but

Just some things off the top of my head.

My suggestions using only cards in your maybeboard.

If Ob Nixilis Reignited's only purpose is card draw, out for Guardian Project

That's 1 more out than in so you should be down to 99.

Ugrades using cards not in maybeboard.

Kodama's Reach in for Golgari Signet, Circuitous Route in for Fellwar Stone, Far Wanderings in for Wayfarer's Bauble - net same mana without threshold, but with it a lot better.
Solemn Simulacrum in for Artisan of Kozilek- Artisan is nice but so expensive, while the sad robot is ramp, card draw, and sac fodder.

Death's Presence in for Nyx Weaver - You don't lose any power for sacking your creatures.

Crucible of Worlds in for Whispersilk Cloak

Illusionist's Bracers in for Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Archfiend of Despair in for Boneyard Wurm- have to cut one of this effect at this point, Wound Reflection in for Liliana, Death's Majesty - could take out the other Lily, but her best case scenario is better.

These three cards together with Jarad allow you to sac a 5 power creature to deal 40 damage. Activate Jarac(sac creature is a cost)+Bracers double = 10 to each opponent. Archfiend and Reflection trigger, first deals 10, second 20 for 40 total damage.

Be careful about putting the Cauldron out too early, since it prevents Death Triggers.

Underrealm Lich + Gitrog = draw almost entire deck, since they trigger off each other.

Underrealm Lich will prevent you from decking as it replaces the card draw.

KaiserChronic While I found that a lot of the graveyard filling cards are pioneer legal, the best payoffs are not. Boneyard Wurm , Ghoultree , and Splinterfright are out. Molderhulk is very average, if he had trample or higher power would be a lot better. Golgari Raiders is not bad, but slower.

I'm not the best when it comes to deck building but I can see there's lots to improve.

What to cut: - Darkblade Agent - Completely pointless and does not help develop your deck's strategy neither is it a win con.

9/15/19 - Taking out a Forest and Boneyard Wurm for Shared Summons and Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis . Mostly because I've always meant to have Hogaak in here and almost every time I've drawn Boneyward Wurm it hasn't done a lot. I kinda always knew I would take it out.
