Golgari Findbroker Discussion
1 day ago
I actually started out with a deck that had a lot of the cards you listed and found it to be slow and underwhelming.
The discard has been absolutely amazing. I don't understand why the majority of stanadard players think they belong in the side. They almost always hit and even when they don't they still provide valuable information. Vicious Rumors has been great. It does so much for so little mana and since there is no Liliana of the Veil in Standard, it has a similiar effect.
Underrealm Lich is a powerhouse. His Sylvan Library like effect pretty much seals games and the thing that he has over Doom Whisperer which gets killed about 90% of the time is that he sticks. Having indestructible access with no mana investment is huge.
Golgari Findbroker was one of the last cards I cut but I'd say my wins have gone up since doing so.
The exploring merfolk are okay but they still die to Ritual of Soot which often becomes a 4 of game 2. I've seen them get big but the majority of the time you're paying 3 mana for an extra land to go to hand and a creature that'll die before it can swing once. Please also note the anti-synergy they have when against Vicious Rumors
Not trying to shoot down all your suggestions and I thank you for commenting. I just been down that path before and for my play style at least, this is much more successful than moving backwards.
That being said, I do see the value of a The Eldest Reborn in the 75. What would you cut for it?
Also, I agree the curve is rather wonky. The intention is to leave room for interaction but I wish there was some more instant speed stuff.

Ok so I have a few points, your deck has a pretty wonky curve. All the one-drops might not be necessary and Duress/Divest is more of a sideboard card. The Vicious Rumors is interesting, I won't say it's bad but you could maybe put in something different for it. Instead of Underrealm Lich I would go for another Doom Whisperer since the Surveil and 6/6 flyer is just infinitely better. I noticed you wanted some Glowspore Shaman, I definetly recommend that. Also Golgari Findbroker would be really strong for you. Definetly at least 1 The Eldest Reborn in the main. I would do 4 Vraska's Contempt instead of Walk the Plank. It is good but it could be better, and a lot of the staples have become merfolk now that golgari is in the spotlight. I think you should play Merfolk Branchwalker and Jadelight Ranger, 2 insane golgari staples. Good luck!

Hey, mono black midrange has many good cards for post rotation. I suggest Ravenous Chupacabra, Plaguecrafter, Doom Whisperer and The Eldest Reborn. These are four powerful cards for a midrange strategy. You already have 4x Contempt and Isareth which is great. Two drop options that can give you value are Dusk Legion Zealot and Seekers' Squire. Dead Weight and Cast Down are good early game creature removal. Find / Finality is a good card for recursion. Find can be cast with only black mana and recurring any two creatures from your graveyard for two mana is value.
Current black midrange decks in Standard are turning toward Golgari instead of mono black because recursion can be much better with Golgari. Overgrown Tomb and Woodland Cemetery, green gives lots of good options that mono black can't provide mostly both sides of Find / Finality, Golgari Findbroker, Assassin's Trophy, Vraska, Relic Seeker, but also Wildgrowth Walker with the explore creatures (Merfolk Branchwalker, Jadelight Ranger, Seekers' Squire).

Hey thanks man. I completely forgot that we decided to take out dusk legion. Also, I saw a really cool golgari deck with Pernicious Deed + Ravenous Chupacabra it was a great combo. It also utilized Golgari Findbroker I just really like the flavor of muldrotha. I also really like the sideboard package blue offers. I think Unmoored Ego is a really underrated card right now. I'm also contemplating going to a 3-3 split with Muldrotha, the Gravetide and Vraska, Golgari Queen

Thank you for the comment! The biggest thing last week was the cards I had and what I didn't want to spend money on. I actually did have two Deathgorge Scavengers in the sideboard last Friday, and though I never got to use them I feel like that they give slight advantage in the burn matchups because of the life gain and the minor graveyard hate. When I was testing I actually looked at both straight golgari midrange and sultai midrange splashing for cards like Thought Erasure, but I liked the early game versatility that Knight of Autumn provides, especially with the ability to get it back with Golgari Findbroker and Find / Finality. I love playing with Shalai, but I am going to be testing replacing them with a deathgorge in the main and one in the sideboard.
And although the abzan variant can't play Field of Ruin, the feeling of blowing up a tapped out control player's Search for Azcanta Flip with Knight of Autumn is a great feeling. I think the direction I take is going to vary based upon how the metagame shapes up.

On a second look, this deck looks fun as hell to play. I'll have to try it out, but I'll probably end up putting in Golgari Findbroker instead of Muldrotha, the Gravetide. If you find success with the splash of blue and maybe find more cards for it in the mainboard, I'd be interested in trying out the 3 color variant. Let me know how the deck works out!
P.S. The current edition of this deck has 64 cards in it. Not sure if that was intentional or not.

There are some ways to leverage it, though:
- Golgari Findbroker can put the saga back in hand, creating some interesting loops.
- Izoni isn't too impactful, but because of the delay, it will arrive when you have all of your mana open.

Hey, consider midrange instead of aggro if you want to utilize the graveyard with Golgari? I suggest midrange instead of aggro to build around four cards with synergy: Find / Finality, Golgari Findbroker, The Eldest Reborn, Ravenous Chupacabra (in control matchups swap out for Plaguecrafter). I think if you want to play aggro with Golgari than play Green Stompy splashing black: Llanowar, Collector, Thorn, Harpooner, Champion, Ferox and Ghalta.
The midrange graveyard Golgari engines are Find/Findbroker and Findbroker/Reborn. These engines can get back creatures(s) or with Findbroker any permanent. Find can recur Findbroker. Reborn can reanimate Findbroker which then lets you recur Reborn. Findbroker can recur Reborn. Ravenous in this case becomes a very powerful creature removal spell because it's a creature, you can keep recurring it. Like Ravenous you can use other utility creatures and keep recurring them: Plaguecrafter, Thrashing Brontodon/Reclamation Sage, Plague Mare, District Guide/Elvish Rejuvenator, Deathgorge Scavenger, Burglar Rat, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, etc. Most of these can be in the sideboard and the recursion makes these very good sideboard creatures. The same can be said for good permanents that Findbroker can recur: Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Vraska, Relic Seeker, Field of Ruin (also good with Glowspore).
Using cards that you're already playing here: Branchwalker, Jadelight, Glowspore and Vraska to put creatures and permanents into your graveyard and then use Find/Findbroker/Isareth/Reborn to get them back. Doom Whisperer or Underrealm Lich can be the finisher who can also put cards into your graveyard or who can be recurred with Find/Findbroker/Reborn. Whisperer is better than Lich, but much more expensive price if that matters.
Here's an example:
- 4x Glowspore
- 3x Branchwalker
- 4x Jadelight
- 3x Guide or Rejuvenator
- 2x Isareth
- 4x Ravenous
- 3x Findbroker
- 2x Whisperer or Lich
- 1x Izoni
- 2x Vraska Queen
- 4x Find
- 3x Trophy
Good luck with your deck.
