thanks for the feedback, SpectreFusion ! Splinterfright is indeed something I could use instead of Ghoultree , I'll run some tests. Trample is a nice thing to have.

Comparing Splinterfright , Boneyard Wurm and Ghoultree : With 6 cards in the graveyard, I cast Ghoultree for as much mana as Boneyard Wurm , except the first is a 10/10, and Boneyard Wurm is a 6/6. Late game, though, both Boneyard Wurm and Splinterfrigh pose much more danger, while being vulnerable to graveyard counters. I'll post results when I have the chance.

Splinterfright might replace some copies of Ghoultree since it keeps building your yard and has trample. Boneyard Wurm is similar cheap alternative but lacks the extra abilities. Grim Flayer , Satyr Wayfinder , and Glowspore Shaman could also be useful. A copy or two of Vengeful Pharaoh can be a good deterrent if it fits your deck. Gnaw to the Bone might be useful against burn or aggro. Grisly Salvage puts 4 or 5 cards into the grave instead of Corpse Churn 's 2, but it has a harder casting cost and you have a smaller selection of creatures to bring back to your hand. Lastly Tombstalker might also be an interesting addition. Best of luck man.

I hadn't thought about Rancor ! Awesome suggestions. I threw in the Loxodon Warhammer in for the lifelink and trample. With this set up by turn 4 or 5 I'm only paying 2 for Nemesis of Mortals and at the most 3 for Ghoultree . Splinterfright perpetuates the self mill but I'll probably switch out two Nemesis of Mortals for a complete play set of Splinterfright and the other 2 for another Ghoultree and Ambush Viper just to round things off and make it more aggressive. MORE SUGGESTIONS PLEASE :)

Deere101, I myself run a Sidisi deck and let me tell you, it's fun. I've been working on her over the years to get her more compettitive but she works great casually. I suggest adding Embalmer's Tools, at your opponents end step you can tap your zombies to hopefully get more before the start of your turn. You could also add Rot Farm Skeleton for some added self mill. Flesh-Eater Imp is a fun one for that surprise infect, adding a Swiftfoot Boots can help alot with this if your willing to drop a couple of bucks on it. Gaea's Blessing can be added to save you from decking out and Ghoultree is, in my opinion a better Molderhulk. Oh and Wood Sage is a good card to either get a creature you rather not have fall in your grave or just to trigger Sidisi.

I wouldn't call myself an "experienced Golgari player," but a while ago I built a deck with a similar idea in mind.

The main issue I see with your deck is that you have almost entirely creatures, with only 4 noncreature cards that aren't lands. I would recommend playing Grisly Salvage in your mainboard, 2-3 copies, as well as maybe some other cards that generate card advantage. The new Underrealm Lich is REALLY GOOD at that, but it's also an expensive card if you don't have it.

I would take out Nighthowler, just because it isn't that great and you already have a lot of cards doing similar things.

I would play a maximum of 2 copies of big finishers like Boneyard Wurm, Graveblade Marauder, or Ghoultree. You already have Splinterfright which does the same thing as the Wurm, and the others just aren't necessary because you have so many duplicates.

With the remaining 7-8 slots (after you take those out and put in the Grisly Salvages), I would recommend around 2 slots of removal other than Abrupt Decay (something like Doom Blade would be good). I mentioned draw before, and Elvish Visionary is a really good, cheap way to gain card advantage—plus, when it dies you get another creature in your graveyard. I would recommend 3 copies of Elvish Visionary and take out 1 Satyr Wayfinder.

That leaves 3-4 slots. I would actually play the Nyx Weavers, 2 copies, as they are a really good blocker and can fill up your graveyard easily.

Finally, with the last 1 or 2 slots, I would recommend Deadly Recluse What? A garbage common from a core set?? Yeah I know, but trust me, this is your best bet dealing with fliers. Flying gets underrated as a mechanic, but the second one of your buddies whips out a deck where all his little 1/1 tokens have flying, or his spirits start whacking you for 2 in the air every turn, these can slow down those attacks considerably.

So to review:

-4 Nighthowler

-2 Boneyard Wurm

-2 Graveblade Marauder

-2 Ghoultree

-1 Satyr Wayfinder

+2/3 Grisly Salvage

+2 Doom Blade

+3 Elvish Visionary

+2 Nyx Weaver

+1/2 Deadly Recluse

And that's it! Keep in mind that these are just suggestions. All of these cards can be had for about 50¢, and if you have them, I would definitely recommend Underrealm Lich instead of 1 of the Abrupt Decays, and a second copy instead of 1 of the Stitcher's Suppliers.

Have fun! I love playing around with the graveyard, and I hope these suggestions help you improve the deck!

DeviousPenguin666 I hear what you're saying about Satyr Wayfinder, I am still deciding which way to go with him but am still using Glowspore Shaman as of 12/13/2018. The extra 2 power is really really nice, but like you said, doesn't fill the grave or fix your mana quite as effectively as Wayfinder.

I have been able to get aGhoultree out on turn two (some shenanigans with Stitcher's Supplier and Street Wraith). I sort of view this deck as playing a bunch of copies of Goyf if that makes sense haha!
