Canal Dredger Discussion
2 months ago
Looking at some random cards on the database I saw Disciple of the Ring . Could be fun.
Those are all possibilities. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about self-mill.
Also, and I know many would disagree with this, but I have a soft spot for Fog Bank .

@SamsWrath - Thanks for the suggestions! Although those all would help the deck, I think the original list included things like Canal Dredger instead of noncreature artifacts since those creatures can be grabbed by Grenzo. I am considering Darksteel Pendant now though, as it would be stickier and maybe help recovery from board wipes.

Hi, I played Shirei off the cuff a few times as I saw he was cute. But I like your niche view of using wiping artifacts repeatedly.
Have you thought about: Canal Dredger (lets you recur destroyed/hated out pieces) Coretapper + Magistrate's Scepter for an easy 3 card combo? Run Snow-Covered Swamp so you don't share mana with extraplanar lens (but only if you insist on using it) Blood Pet - extra mana every turn. Makes for faster shirei Skittering Surveyor and Skyscanner are both card advantage engines with shirei + sac outlet
Furthermore you should run The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal , Dark Ritual , Culling the Weak , Mox Amber (since your entire gameplan is focused around shirei being in play anyway), Chains of Mephistopheles vs decks with draw power, Contamination , Imperial Seal . Now next is for sheer faster wins. Ad Nauseam , Pitiless Plunderer can function as a semi- Phyrexian Altar , Demonic Consultation so that you can find your win conditions faster, Tainted Pact is another competitive level backup but requires the rest of the deck to be tuned around it.
When alliegance set drops I'd also recommend Priest of Forgotten Gods
This is clearly a pet-deck. Play it however you want. But honestly? You need to make room for Toxic Deluge , Lake of the Dead , Strip Mine , Wasteland , Dust Bowl . In stax black needs every advantage it can get. But building up until you have a critical mass of mana like with Exsanguinate / whatever is just unrealistic in a competitive meta. It's far too easily disrupted.
A Crucible of Worlds & some fetch-lands would go well. That way at least you'd be able to gain mana advantage turn by turn with almost no loss. Lastly, try running Meteor Golem - I've seen him be busted with Scarecrone and other recursion effects, but ymmv. Especially if you don't like using sorceress queen.

I'd like your opinions about these heard tomorrow (Or Sunday.). Also, what do you think the best Lifegain card in is that's an Instant & <=4? You know, Repeatable Healing?
I'll be waiting.
Reduced card amount from 160 to 130. I hope this helps. Sad I couldn't reach 120. But can we still manage, landofMordor?

litlamzetiv Thanks so much for your detailed suggestions. I can't believe I had forgotten about Lhurgoyf this whole time. Also, as far as Canal Dredger is concerned, I opted against them only because I couldn't find the card for play online. I knew about the other two you mentioned, but only after reading your comment (I think I'm starting to forget things in my old age.) Once again, thanks for the help, and I'll definitely be taking a look at your deck.

I like the twist on the theme, though I wonder if it's not playing too hard against itself. For example, Gurzigost is counter intuitive to this deck as he plays against the Splinterfright. While you might want to retrieve some items from your graveyard, you may be better off just sticking things there that you're happy putting there.
Abilities that work well with this strategy include: Cycling, discard effects (including Spellshapers, & Grandeur, & Dredge) and effects that also benefit from having things in the graveyard (Threshold and Delirium). Other cards that boost themselves based upon graveyard contents (since you're already B&G, I'd suggest Lhurgoyf, Mortivore, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord).
I also would tend to eschew non-creature spells, as they don't help pump Splinterfright. For example:
Those are just some ideas. If you'd like to see what I did with this deck, you can see it here:https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/goyf-1/

Yeah... I know of a few cards that can put it into the deck again repeatedly (Canal Dredger, Epitaph Golem, Junktroller), but unfortunately they're all creatures which obviously die to removal, so it makes them an easy target to deal with the problem when the whole idea is to have this recurring threat of the Panglacial Wurm which is sort of nullified. Poop is right. :(
