Golgari Grave-Troll Discussion

Also, as The Mimeoplasm enters as a copy of Golgari Grave-Troll, it does get counters equal to the number of cards in your graveyard (after the two cards are exiled) plus the 13 counters from Death's Shadow, so it will have plenty of counters to regenerate with.

I'm not sure what you mean by "counters from Death's Shadow," because that card doesn't give any counters.
To answer your question about Regeneration, The Mimeoplasm will remain a copy of Golgari Grave-Troll if you Regenerate it from lethal damage or when it is destroyed. Regeneration is basically like a "shield" that protects your creature from dying. It's a replacement effect for a permanent that states:
The next time [permanent] would be destroyed this turn, instead remove all damage marked on it and tap it. If it's an attacking or blocking creature, remove it from combat.

Specifically If I have The Mimeoplasm come in as a copy of Golgari Grave-Troll with counters from Death's Shadow and I regenerate him. Does he come back as The Mimeoplasm or Golgari Grave-Troll and would he keep the counters from Death's Shadow.

You're welcome! I bought this deck for my wife and she loves it. You may also think about adding dredge creatures just to fill your graveyard a bit more. Examples are Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Grave-Troll, Golgari Thug. I use them plus The Gitrog Monster and Lotleth Troll to form an unassuming combo in which you dredge, hit a land, discard the dredger and dredge again. As long as you hit a land every time you dredge (which isn't hard), you can mill yourself as much as you want, then cast Living Death to get everyone on the battlefield. It's kind of jankey, but she's assembled it several times to great effect.

Interesting deck. Crypt of Agadeem is definitely worth considering. You should develop the mana base overall.
Lotleth Troll, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Dredge cards like Golgari Grave-Troll ? Then maybe some incarnations Genesis, Brawn, Filth (with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth). These cards are not zombies but all have some use in graveyard decks. Take what you want.

Phenax is definitely a great fit. It's one of the cards that would be among first to go in if this wasn't a budget list.Other obvious upgrades would include

Perusing the internet this morning, I came across the "seven by nine" rule. If your not familiar with it, you can check it out here, under note three - http://www.quietspeculation.com/2011/05/building-depietro-depauper/
Anyways, I found it quite brilliant. I broke out my EDH deck (The Cairn Nel Toth) and decided that it needed a serious overhaul.
I decided that my nine "slots," if you will would be the following:
Sacrifice Fodder (CMC 1 or less)
Sacrifice Fodder (CMC 2)
Sacrifice Fodder (CMC 3 or greater)
Utility/assorted random cards
So i started sorting the piles, and quickly realized I had too many cards for some slots, and not enough for others. I started the long, laborious, and painful process of cutting cards. I couldn't quite cut enough cards from the utility pile, so I decided I would have nine utility cards, and only six distinctly self-mill and CMC three or greater sacrifice fodder cards, because a lot of other cards can do those things in addition to doing their main purpose (if that makes any sense).
Anyways, I'll list the cards I have for each slot (its quite different than the original deck). Also, many cards serve multiple purposes, so I'm putting them in the category of their MAIN purpose.
Self-mill - Golgari Grave-Troll, Life from the Loam, Altar of Dementia (The best card in the whole deck, hands down. Not even kidding. Every Meren deck should run this card), Mesmeric Orb, Grapple with the Past. I need one more card for this slot (Stinkweed Imp?).
Sacrifice Outlets - Ashnod's Altar, Skullclamp, Attrition, Mind Slash, Evolutionary Leap. I don't love one-off sacrifice spells, but I have the slot for one. I've been debating between Altar's Reap, Morbid Curiosity and Eldritch Evolution.
Thoughts? What cards should fill my unfilled slots? Any cards I should replace?
