Golgari Findbroker Discussion

I meant that in my opinion this is one of the most fun to play-commander card in the set. As I'm not a competitive player I always look for interesting abilities and Thantis, the Warweaver looks great. For me this one, Saheeli, the Gifted and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent are awsome. But everyone has a different flavor, and that is good for commander as a format to play, because you never have the right answers against all different possible strategy.

It is in fact one of the hardest thing to cut down some cards, everyone who has brewed for his/her deck knows that. The best thing for me was the following to know:

1) Be clear what's your strategy is. Does {a specific card} help you to improve your deck and this strategy. For you this might be: Let everyone attack, but not me. If they do, they will lose their creatures. If they don't attack you, you will have enough time to build up a big board. Every turn creatures are attacking, so in my opinion it is not good, to have too much creatures. Because you have to attack with them and then you maybe will lose them.. Get in some good defenders, Wall of Stone

2) Collect information of a commander deck. To have the best chances to win a game (or to have the most fun), there are some simple tricks in building your decks.

2.1) Ramp: It is hard, to pass the turn without playing some stuff and having a great 8/8 fattie with awsome ability in your hand. So: Add some creatures with mana abilities. But be aware of your commander: Creatures must attack each turn. Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, or Explosive Vegetation get you early mana access.

2.2) Card draw: Fill your hand afterv playing some stuff. The more card you have in your hand the more options you have. And a better chance of drawing just the right card to the right time. I've mentioned some cards, also Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, Skullclamp are awsome. At least 6-9 card should be something with card draw. Solemn Simulacrum is classical, it gives you an additional land and a single card draw. Also Wall of Blossoms, at least gives you early safe and a card draw.

2.3) Boardwhipes: In this deck, normally creatures are hitting other creatures and are dying anyway. but sometimes it is helpful to get everyone back to zero. Bane of Progress is a hero, also Vandalblast. Whirlwind against flying creatures. Maybe Bane of the Living, Pernicious Deed - or some red burn spells like Star of Extinction, Blasphemous Act..

2.4) Recursion: Sometimes creatures are going to the graveyard - so get them back. Eternal Witness, Golgari Findbroker or something like that. Zombify is also okay, I guess.

And last but not least: Find special cards! Natural Affinity turns everybody's lands into creatures, so they have to attack with them. Mortivore, cause there are for sure many cards in everyone's graveyard

So find the right balance of strategy, ramp and card draw and you are going to get the most fun out of every deck ;) Just my thoughts for now..

hi, really nice list imo, will use it as inspiration for a deck i will probably build in the future.

depending on how many grave pact effects you want you might want to consider Savra, Queen of the Golgari.

i would like Golgari Findbroker and Fauna Shaman for the deck as well.

also i'd probably run Hissing Quagmire over the guildgate.

You forgot the most important Golgari elf that exists for tribal, Shaman of the Pack!

Also I think Golgari Findbroker could be a good edition to the deck...

Lastly I fucking love the flavor here! I've read all of the Dark Elf trilogy and currently my party is in the Out Of The Abyss DnD Campaign!

You're a bit into the wrong color for self-sacrifice style play. And going by your description, Death's Shadow sounds like it'd be up your alley. A reason for you to hurt yourself while also being the big thing that kills the opponent.

Cards like Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Eternal Witness, Shriekmaw, Reveillark, Mulldrifter, Find / Finality, Golgari Findbroker, Lotleth Giant, Unburial Rites, Living End, are all relatively decent with the whole sacrifice theme

If you're looking for stronger ramp, you can upgrade the Golgari artifacts and some of the random non-elf creatures into Elves of Deep Shadow, more Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic or Golgari Signet.

If you go further down the elf-ramp path, you can start playing more synergistic cards like Masked Admirers, which you can sacrifice to Vraska the Unseen's ability and get back later. Deathtouch creatures in general work well with the other Vraskas, blocking very well and needing to be blocked when you get close to ultimate territory.

If you're trying to ultimate as quickly as possible, Doubling Season is expensive (but also probably the cheapest it's been in years right now) but irreplaceable. With that on the battlefield, if you resolve any planeswalker it comes in with twice the counters, often letting you ultimate immediately. The proliferate route, while keeping your Vraska's protected, is next-best. Clasp is a great card, and Plaguemaw Beast could be a synergistic consideration.

The best way to protect a planeswalker once it's on the battlefield is by removing your opponent's threats, and this deck could use some pieces of removal broader than Naturalize. Putrefy or Status / Statue is a terrific budget alternative to something like Assassin's Trophy or Maelstrom Pulse, while Cast Down is a cheap way to take down most creatures. Ravenous Chupacabra kills a creature while leaving a body on the board to attack, block, or get sacrificed to be brought back with Golgari Findbroker and such. Find / Finality does double duty of recurring your creatures when your planeswalkers aren't being threatened, and wiping the board when you're behind.

As for keeping your planeswalkers in steady supply if you're pinched due to literal supply, Nature's Spiral is a good addition. Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is another very powerful alternative, but you would likely need to run many more legendary creatures in order to consistently cast it. Some options: Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Isareth the Awakener, Marwyn, the Nurturer (who is also terrific ramp if you go the Elf route), Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Rishkar, Peema Renegade (who also is great with your proliferate effects), or my personal favorite Gonti, Lord of Luxury.

I diddled around with this deck for a couple of matches with one I am working on and this is what I found.

I like your intentions here. Swing in with big creatures that cant be blocked because of the merfolk. And or hitting with creatures from the yard or some graveyard interactions.

I would chunk these.

  • ALL- river heralds boon, dive down,grow from the ashses, Whisper blood litrugist, mulderhulk and possibly golgari raiders. In the games I played those cards felt lack luster.(if you are wanting to keep any of these ID suggest sideboard)

Increase numbers (for consistency) of untamed kavu (really performed well). The merfolk if that is a big part of your gameplan.

Two cards you should definitely be playing is Golgari Findbroker 3x if not a full set. Its amazing to be honest.

And Glowspore Shaman to help get those bodies in the yard and smooth out land draws or pull back the memorial to folly

A nice little annoying loop with the shaman and the findbroker with Memorial to Folly which also fits your theme.

Lastly remember that the gravetide is permanents. So you wont be able to use any spells. Best for creatures and enchantments and if you are having issues with running out of gas that bloodfast would be nice here.

Anyways, Just some suggestions and thoughts.
