Dakmor Salvage Discussion

SirFowler on Grusilda's Graveyard Smash

Some dredge cards like Dakmor Salvage, Stinkweed Imp, and Darkblast can help get cards into your graveyard quickly. Also, Jagged Poppet could be nice for discarding cards as well.

Hello there! First of all, cool deck idea. Esper reanimator that isn't artifact centric isn't something you see everyday. I also like that you chose to go the discard route instead of the sacrifice route. That being said, since you mentioned above that you want a commander which you can use in your game plan, have you considered using the partner commanders Ravos, Soultender and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept (or Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker). While they don't have the same raw power as Oloro, both have built in reanimator abilities which would allow you to utilize them for your game plan. Plus Oloro draws a ton of hate from other players in my experience.

In terms of speeding up your deck, I would second the previous suggestion about changing which mana rocks you use. I only consider mana rocks with a CMC greater than 2 if it has a specific ability that I find necessary for my deck. While the signets only tap for 2 of your 3 colors, they are considerably faster than 3 cmc rocks and I find that they are better color fixers (keep Commander's Sphere though). Also, Mind Stone is a pretty great 2 cmc mana rock that later replaces itself.

Since you are running very high CMC creatures, another way to speed up your deck is by utilizing more effects which get them directly into your graveyard early. Buried Alive is a great start, but you could also consider Entomb, dredge effects like Stinkweed Imp, Dakmor Salvage, and Golgari Thug (which coincidently are great sacrifice targets), and Dread Summons. Another route to go is to replace your group hug cards (unless group hug is your goal) with wheel effects like Windfall, Forgotten Creation, Jace's Archivist, and Wheel and Deal.

Lastly, I noticed you run Volrath the Fallen which is absolutely fantastic! I am not sure if you are familiar with the CommanderVs series on YouTube, but one of the guys over there just did a video piloting a Volrath the Fallen deck. While it is more of glass cannon deck that abuses Volrath, it might give you some ideas about the discard-reanimation theme.

Good luck deck building!

You could exchange a swamp for a Dakmor Salvage, so if a game runs long, you can always dredge it back, and play Raven's Crime.

Also, Asylum Visitor can be pretty good for a budget deck - you can madness-play it with Smallpox or Collective Brutality.

The sideboard needs a little bit of work. pack rats are a bit out of place and more dismember would better, 1 mana removal could be really useful. also Damnation over bontus would be much better. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is a legendary land so I would cut those down to 2 or 3. Dakmor Salvage is a land with dredge so if you have ravens crime in your gy you could always land a discard if you have already emptied their hand. another thought would be to play some Godless Shrine and then put some enchantment removal in your sideboard like Fragmentize or Disenchant to deal with stuff like Leyline of Sanctity. good luck with it!

This is fun, similar to a couple decks I've brewed and run the past year.

2x Smallpox, -1 BloodMoon -1 Fatal Push. Then Liliana of the Dark Realms can get back ahead with land. I've also used Dakmor Salvage to do that as well.

Leptys on Gitrog Dredge Combo [Primer]

1 month ago


Tainted Pact is a card that first seems like an obvious pick for a deck that wants to rush into its "one-card" combo (Gitrog + Dakmor Salvage) as soon as possible, but unfortunately it really isn't that great here as the combo has so many moving parts in it. The deck also relies heavily on these moving parts, which is why exiling combo pieces can be a real pain if not a complete blowout.

Flipping a Kozilek is the main deal breaker as you never want to exile him, and to add he's more or less a completely dead draw. Furthermore, assuming we hit Dakmor it's another must-keep, even though it has at least some use outside of the combo. And finally, if we have any part of the combo in exile (which almost certainly will happen when we dig more than a dozen cards with Pact), we never ever want to exile our one-of Riftsweeper as then we lose access to the pieces permanently.

I will admit that I haven't counted the numbers on the odds of flipping these pieces, but seeing as there are potentially several cards that you will almost never want to flip off of Pact, it really has some bad blood with this sort of deck to be a viable tutor candidate (unlike in a deck that dives to their combo piece head-first or has several one-card wincons like Food Chain Prossh or Doomsday/Shimmer Myr Zur respectively).

Thanks for the recommendation though, it's not something that has been asked before so it's a good card to be discussed about.

ClockworkSwordfish, Shrieking Affliction is Racks 5-8

Liliana of the Veil is such a house in this deck but I understand the budget may not allow it, gotta mention it at least though.

Mutavault is a great alternate win condition if you need a creature without playing actual creatures which most 8 Rack decks don't. If you do play creatures then I would say Pack Rat or Bloodghast are about the only things worth running.

Smallpox is very good interaction and works well with Bloodghast

Thoughtseize is the best discard spell

Fatal Push>Doom blade

IoK, which someone already mentioned

Dakmor Salvage works very well with Ravens Crime

Collective Brutality
