Plaxcaster Frogling is much better than Sylvan Safekeeper

Blighted Agent or Viral Drake might be a good idea.

Master Biomancer and Bloodspore Thrinax might also be a good idea.

Sakura-Tribe Elder is a must have in this deck.

Plasm Capture is a good idea if you're going to put more counters in, Rewind and Fuel for the Cause are a good idea as well.

If you're willing to spend the money, Golgari Grave-Troll is an amazing card.

Coiling Oracle is a good ramp + ezuri trigger.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar are ezri triggering planeswalkers with draw and destruction prowess.

Thornbite Staff allows you to mow down creatures due to glissa's deathtouch.

Entomb, Buried Alive, Codex Shredder and cards with dredge like Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Thug, Life from the Loam & Dakmor Salvage are great for decks that have graveyard shenanigans.

Grinning Totem, Unwinding Clock, Clock of Omens, and Shimmer Myr are all cards I also enjoy using in my glissa deck.

Mate, I'm sorry to hear about the theft. I hope you get back into it - I'm a huge fan of your decks! In fact I think I'll put a couple together to play with a few mates, who I used to play AD&D with, that I'd like to drag into the game with me.

I'm brand-new to MTG and found this deck while looking for graveyard style decks since my intro into the game has been playing zombies on Magic Duels.

I'm putting together a version of this deck, replacing 2x Golgari Grave-Troll with 2x Golgari Thug, and the 2x Kessig Cagebreakers with 2x The Gitrog Monster and looking forward to trying it out at my first ever FNM very soon!

Hi looks good just a few quick comments.

While Welding Jar is a decent card it doesn't work with Mindslaver the way you think it does. The way regenerate works (and this is a simplified version) is the next time it would be destroyed, it isnt (and you get to ignore any damage already dealt to it this turn). Sacrificing is not the same as destroying it however and so you can't save your Mindslaver in that way. You could regenerate something like Nevinyrral's Disk though as it does specify you destroy it

Entomb, Buried Alive, Codex Shredder and cards with dredge like Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Thug, Life from the Loam & Dakmor Salvage are great for decks that have graveyard shenanigans.

Also I find i get a bunch of value out of Grinning Totem in my glissa deck

Obvious reprints of both Gitaxian Probe and Golgari Grave-Troll as they've become so popular in modern recently... oh wait.

I would love to see Damnation reprinted, and Steam Vents would be great (not getting hopes up on Scalding Tarn.

I think if they were to reprint Gilded Lotus/Chromatic Lantern, it would have been in Eternal Masters. They're more commander cards than modern cards.

Definitely need a Cavern of Souls reprint.

The deck looks like solid Jeskai! I have always thought that Jeskai Delver never got the credit it deserves.

With no disrespect intended to RoboticPlayer, I must stress how important it is for you to NOT replace your fetchlands with Evolving Wilds. Evolving Wilds can only grab basic lands, making getting all 3 colors online in a timely manner very difficult, and they come into play tapped, making your reactive counters and burn spells much less effective. As long as you fetch intelligently, the minimal lifeloss you take doesn't come close to the advantage you gain for using fetchlands.

As far as your sideboard goes, I would recommend Rest in Peace. Even with the banning of Golgari Grave-Troll, Dredge is still very powerful and a prominent threat. It also helps against decks that utilize their graveyard a lot like Grixis Control. It does make your Snapcasters worse, but it is something you may want to consider all the same.

Great deck!

Entomb, Buried Alive, Codex Shredder and cards with dredge like Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Thug, Life from the Loam& Dakmor Salvage are great for decks that have graveyard shenanigans.

In my glissa deck I run and have have had success with Grinning Totem, Unwinding Clock, Clock of Omens, Shimmer Myr, and Vedalken Orrery.

You might not have enough mana rocks to do this but i once had a game where on each opponents turn, i got back a mindslaver, cast it with flash, and activated during each of my opponents turns with a combination of those cards.
