Commune with the Gods Discussion
21 hours ago
Alright i've finally got a list on here:
First thing to start off with, i know the land base needs some tweaks. I only have Flooded Strand and dont own any of the other forest/plains or forest/island dual lands. Getting the land base upgraded with be my priority for a little bit.
Second thing would be the creature base. At first i was planning on putting Essence Warden and Soul Warden as sideboard(maybe game 2 going with lifegain part of combo against decks with sweepers). What do you guys think, is having infinite life worth it or is taking away spots that better cards could take up?

This deck seems really slow, which I know sucks to hear but if you're going to play modern, its the sad fact of life. i'd firstly recommend swapping out Benefaction of Rhonas for Commune with the Gods as its cheaper and swapping out Scout the Borders for Commune with Nature for the same reason. You'll also wanna take a look at your mana base, you'll end up drawing into the wrong land a bunch and most modern decks are already equiped to deal with that, so it could become a problem. I'd recommend running Brushland, Canopy Vista and/or Fortified Village, as well as some utility lands, most likely Ghost QuarterYou also arent running any protection/removal, so you might look into Fog or Path to ExileIncreasing Devotion is a bit high cost for what it does, and ite flashback will be almost impossible run without ramp.Other cards that I think might benefit you would be Anointed Procession, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Strength of Arms + Sword of the Animist and you might sideboard somethings like Stony Silence, Silence, Leyline of Sanctity, Oketra's Monument as well as some ramp/protection cards.Hope some of that helps ;)good luck!

I am thinking about building a similar deck myself.
In my opion Blue is a better third color for the deck than Black (which doesn't offer much besides Grisly Salvage) as you get cards like:
Forbidden Alchemy, Strategic Planning, the flashback mode of Tracker's Instincts and also Invisible Stalker as a creature and Auramancer's Guise as a powerful aura.
Instead of running so many auras/creatures I'd rather play more self-milling cantrips.
Vessel of Nascency/Tracker's Instincts and Gather the Pack/Commune with the Gods/Grapple with the Past/Mulch can be decent options.

You should reduce the number of mainboard cards down to 60. I would start by moving Golgari Cluestone, Executioner's Capsule, Golgari Germination, and Graf Harvest to the sideboard or removing them completely. That would reduce your mainboard down to 60 and would increase your sideboard to 12. My deck, Grisly Splinterfright, uses the same colors and has some of the same cards. I'm not sure if this is a Zombie deck or a Graveyard deck, so I don't want to suggest cards like Raven's Crime, Commune with the Gods, or Grisly Salvage because they would fit a Graveyard/Dredge deck but not necessarily a zombie deck.

Hey thanks for the feedback!
I really like Laquatus's Creativity and Whispering Madness since they're like a Forgotten Creation that I don't have to wait for the effect to trigger on, plus the cipher option on Whispering Madness is nice for the flexibility.
I initially had Deep Analysis and Sever the Bloodline in my first draft of this list but ended up cutting them for other cards. I still really want to include Sever the Bloodline as it is pretty decent removal and the flashback option is great, but I'm not sure what I would cut at the moment. I don't know how I missed Cackling Counterpart when building this, I'll have to figure out what I'm dropping but I definitely want to add him in so thanks for that suggestion.
I'm not too keen on Greenwarden of Murasa due to his CMC and the fact that he's $1.00 at the moment. I would definitely include him if it brought them to the battlefield instead of my hand, is there anything like him that does that I'm not already running?
Bitter Revelation and Mental Note seem a bit underwhelming to me, I feel like it's kinda like a less impactful Tracker's Instincts/Commune with the Gods/Forbidden Alchemy/Grisly Salvage but having a few more similar options might be good. I'll have to play the deck a few times and get a feel before I decide on that.
I 100% agree on Chronic Flooding, I like that it's more controlled and you don't have to worry about it decking you too much, gonna swap those out for each other.
Embalmer's Tools was another card I had in the first draft of this list that I ended up cutting, it's another card I definitely want to include but am not sure what to cut, probably going to end up dropping Blossoming Wreath as you suggested earlier as I agree that it's not that impactful/worth taking up a slot so I might put it in to replace that.
Fact or Fiction and Epiphany at the Drownyard are both great cards, just need to make room for them, probably going to drop Feldon's Cane since I wont be as worried about decking myself without Curse of the Bloody Tome to make room for one of these.
Extractor Demon is already in the list haha, but yeah very good.
I'm liking Gather the Pack probably going to drop something like Wreath of Geists because I feel like there's already enough options for +x/+x per creature in graveyard in the deck already but we'll see.
Thanks again for the feedback.

oh and nevermind about the too much enchantments: that's apparently normal in a bogles deck . and maybe you can draw some inspiration from this: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pauper-bogles-22844#paperpar example you can put Cartouche of Solidarity, Heliod's Pilgrim, Lifelink, Sunlance or Commune with the Gods in the deck.those are just suggestions.

Before you start buying cards, maybe you can answer the question: Do you see this deck as being competitive one day? As it is, there are ways to make a Golgari graveyard-based synergy deck competitive but it will probably become a Delirium deck eventually. There are also objectively better graveyard decks out there such as Dredge and Living End etc. The main reason why they are better is not because they avoid graveyard hate (anything from Rest in Peace, Nihil Spellbomb, Relic of Progenitus or even just Scavenging Ooze - all commonly played in the format), but because they are consistently faster than your deck. Therefore, I'm not sure how much money you are willing to spend and how much you want to win. That being said, cards like Abrupt Decay and the 3 lands I mentioned are always going to hold value because they are played in quite a lot of other decks.
But if you are looking for a semi-budget way to upgrade this deck and use it to win a few matches at FNM, I think it can still be done. 4 Satyr Wayfinder and 4 Splinterfright is correct, and I think you can go up to 3 Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. 2 more Elves of Deep Shadow to complete the playset is probably helpful for ramp. Not so sure how useful the Deadeye Tracker is going to be in this deck. 3 Nighthowler is ok, I think, it could even go up to 4 if you want. I'd take out Necrotic Ooze because you don't have that many useful abilities to copy. Den Protector is a much slower Eternal Witness so if you have any of the latter you can do a straight swap. You can also consider Boneyard Wurm or 1-2 Ghoultree. You'll need to up the creature count - maybe around 23 creatures.
As for spells, I think 4 discard (2 Raven's Crime and 2 Inquisition of Kozilek) and 4 removal (2 Abrupt Decay and 2 Fatal Push) can work. 1 Life from the Loam is always useful, and maybe just 3 each of Commune with the Gods and Grisly Salvage. That will put you at 15 spells.
But most importantly, your sideboard needs to be silver bullets that will help you against other matchups. As of now, your sideboard is just too random. You'll need graveyard hate that doesn't affect yourself (Nihil Spellbomb, Scrabbling Claws, Scarab Feast); you'll need removal for artifacts/enchantments in general (Naturalize, Natural State); you'll need boardwipes against weenies and tokens (Drown in Sorrow, or even Illness in the Ranks - much more narrow though); you'll need lifegain against Burn and aggro (Gnaw to the Bone); and you could keep 2 more Raven's Crime in the sideboard against control. You'll also need land destruction such as Ghost Quarter, Tectonic Edge or the new Field of Ruin against Valakut decks and the like.
