vomitpile I definitely have and the Molderhulk + Memorial to Folly is a great combo which has made me debate to tweak the deck. Charnel Troll just comes down so much faster and threatens them if it's not dealt with and it's a definite three drop. Although kinda of a no-bo with izoni, I think it's discard ability can offset that to some degree.

But definitely something to think about, Thanks!

I want to suggest a few cards. Charnel Troll- feeds off creatures you put into your graveyard early on. Good beater.

Price of Fame- decent removal with a mechanic that can filter your deck and play to your strengths.

Izoni, Thousand-Eyed- great for a late game bomb. It helps against enemy tokes and can go wide against a big stompy deck. Control stuggles against tokens too.

Find // Finality- get back creatures or potential board wipe.

Kraul Harpooner- good against angels.

Journey to Eternity- bring back creatures.

And any Planeswalkers in the right colors except for the starter deck ones. They are usually bad. Which is a shame.

Hey I like what you've got started here. This is a really powerful style to play but watch out for go wide strategies from Boros and Selesnya decks.

Have you considered Charnel Troll? It really feeds well off creatures in your graveyard for a big hitter late game. There's also a decent considerable removal spell called Price of Fame. The surveil mechanic is great for throwing away cards you dont need or filling your graveyard with more creatures for Izoni, Thousand-Eyed

You mentioned that Charnel Troll effectively trades with Vine Mare but he can't block vine mare, so they would have to choose to block him, which i wouldn't call that effective, but overall a great deck I am willing to build/buy

@Happyfirblog yeah np just got thrown off by the aggro in the title, but now that i look at the whole list it makes sense for no Charnel Troll.

I feel like the deck could use some more mill, and it's also lacking recursion. 2 World Shaper and 2 The Eldest Reborn might be worth running if you replace Golgari Raiders. Raiders needs at least 4 creatures in the bin to be worth playing for 4 mana, so it can be a dead card at times.

I think Molderhulk would be a decent replacement for Charnel Troll, since it can easily be a 2 or 3 mana 6/6 without the downside of exiling creatures every upkeep and making your Undergrowth effects weaker.

I looked at Charnel Troll and he didn’t fit because he exiles creatures from the yard and I could take another look at Pelt Collector but I’m not sure that it fits the go wide plan
