Dakmor Salvage


Dakmor Salvage enters the battlefield tapped.

: Gain .

Dredge 2 (If you would draw a card, instead you may put exactly two cards from the top of your library into your graveyard. If you do, return this card from your graveyard to your hand. Otherwise, draw a card.)

RNR_Gaming I'm going to try out your suggestions along with the other cards in the maybe board now. Blood Crypt | Cabal Coffers | Crop Rotation | Dakmor Salvage | Demonic Tutor | Hour of Promise | Kessig Wolf Run | Overgrown Tomb | Skirge Familiar | Slippery Karst | Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre | Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth | Volrath's Stronghold

Waiting on them to arrive now and haven't decided what to swap yet. We've only played the deck a few times but it feels inconsistent and like there's not enough removal so far.

Grisly Salvage could be good, although you already have quite a few instants in your deck.
Dredge is always a nice and easy way to get things into your graveyard. Dakmor Salvage , Darkblast or Nightmare Void maybe?
Unearth and Retrace might also be good to get additional value out of your graveyard. Unfortunately, none of the Unearth creatures are spiders. But some Retrace spells might be nice, especially since they make it easier to get lands into your graveyard, too!

Love this. Maybe it's too slow, but have you considered Final Parting ? Can put Dakmor Salvage straight into the bin, and another combo piece in hand.

The Gitrog Monster

Dakmor Salvage

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

My question is this: given the infinite loop (described below) that is achievable using the above cards, what is the best way to prove that it works if someone doesn't believe me at first demonstration?

The loop is as follows:

1) Have Gitrog in play, Ulamog in the library, Dakmor Salvage and more than 7 cards in hand.

2) Move to the cleanup step of your turn where you will need to discard down to 7 cards. Make sure that at least one of the discarded cards is a land. This will trigger The Gitrog Monster 's draw ability.

3) Players do not normally get priority during the cleanup step, but since there was an ability triggered, it needs to be put on the stack and resolved in the normal fashion.

4) Draw a card or, if Dakmor Salvage was discarded, dredge it. If one or both of the milled cards are lands, then Gitrog will draw you an additional card.

5) Once the stack is empty and priority has passed around, the cleanup step begins again and you should now have greater than 7 cards again and must discard. Repeat this loop from Step 2 until you find Ulamog.

6) Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre will either be found by being milled in the dredging of Dakmor Salvage or by drawing him off one of the extra cards drawn. Whenever he is milled he will cause your graveyard to be shuffled into the library. Whenever you draw him, make sure he is among the cards discarded at the next opportunity.

Conclusion: With Ulamog recycling the graveyard this loop can be done a truly infinite amount of times and can be used to sift through your deck to select any 6 cards to keep in addition to Dakmor Salvage. It can also go one step further to keep that hand and arbitrarily stop immediately following a reshuffle.

Therefore as a shortcut, this loop can be used to select a hand from your graveyard and library while also shuffling your graveyard into your library following the selection.

For someone who hasn't put a lot of thought into it yet, this can be a hard conclusion to jump to. If I demonstrate the Dakmor/Gitrog part of the loop then reveal Ulamog from my library, should I be able to shortcut to selecting my hand and shuffling? It is an extremely time consuming loop if it can't be shortcut. How should I proceed if someone doesn't believe my conclusion?

rwking082 Thanks for the feedback! I've done everything I can to minimize cards that don't either directly or indirectly help me cast hogaak. That way I can cast him early more consistently. However, I fully agree that removal is also important. I've been considering adding Nullmage Shepherd to make another use for all the tokens I generate while also acting a convoker if I need it to. Beast Within is also just a great catch-all card. If I really needed a convoker, I could even use it on one of my own lands to get a beast. Preferably on Dakmor Salvage or Drownyard Temple

I'll take this advice into consideration

Hey there. Fellow Manaless Dredge dabbler here. What's your reasoning for sticking with Flayer of the Hatebound over Lotleth Giant ? It's a small thing, but it seems like a pretty clear upgrade to me. I suppose that Flayer can target creatures if something is preventing you from going face, but that seems... narrow. Lotleth Giant being a black creature to exile to an Ichorid to squeeze final points of damage has been somewhat relevant for me. It also requires fewer casts of Dread Return to be lethal.

Idk. It's small, I just wanted to know if you have some reason for keeping Flayer that I haven't thought of.

Also, my local meta has quite a bit of D&T in it, so running a single Dakmor Salvage in the board has been pretty clutch to keep Thalia from blanking every spell lol. Again, small thing, just wanted to share the tech.
