Golgari Grave-Troll Discussion

Burnished Hart seems really good in this deck. Possibly even better than Explosive Vegetation since it is re-castable with your commander and is both an artifact and a creature.

Memnarch is another artifact creature and obviously insanely good in Commander.

Hermit Druid, Golgari Grave-Troll, Dakmor Salvage, Golgari Thug are some good options for self-mill.

Living Death and Yawgmoth's Will are excellent in these sorts of decks as well.

Mystic Remora is in my opinion a better Rhystic Study and is absolutely disgusting in this deck since you can get around it's cumulative upkeep.

If you feel like being degenerate, Glen Elendra Archmage is dumb in this deck too..

Pretty solid list for keeping it under $200. You've got the Ishka-infinite which is a must for this commander IMO, so that's good. Depending on how much you want to use the grave, I'd highly recommend running Golgari Grave-Troll for big dredges and Altar of Dementia as a way of milling yourself further or milling your opponents to death if you pull off the infinite but don't have the colored mana to drain everyone. I'd also recommend running Hornet Queen and/or Grave Titan to give yourself more infinite combo enablers, they don't drain the way Ishka does, but with Blood Artist or Altar of Dementia, you can still go lethal with them.

As for when you get to the land base, include both colored artifact lands, the cycling lands, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Grim Backwoods, and Dakmor Salvage for sure, all of those lands enable Delirium in some way.

Here's my list if you want some inspiration, I'm less budget than this build is, but there's some cheap pieces I'm running that might pique your interest, especially since our builds aren't too far apart and our game plan is the same.

I would add more dredge cards to fill up your graveyard more quickly.

Dredge cards ordered by EDHREC rank: https://scryfall.com/search?q=o%3A%22dredge%22+commander%3ABG&order=edhrec

My favorites are Dakmor Salvage, Golgari Grave-Troll and Golgari Thug

Otherwise it will take eternities to enable your commander's potential when you just focus on sacrifice/discard.

I run a similar deck that tends to be highly competitive:

[Upgraded][C15] Plunder the Graves - Golgari Mulch

Commander / EDH CommanderAdventures


Maybe you can find some ETB/LTB triggers you like.

Last_Laugh thanks for the suggestions. I contemplated adding a dredge engine with Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp and Life from the Loam but it felt like it crowded my deck and my yard filled up fast enough during playtesting.

Especially thanks for the blue tips, I haven't really looked at that part of my collection yet. Your Muldrotha deck looks sweet as well by the way! ;)

As a side note. If you draw 2 Cards for example and you have a Golgari Grave-Troll in the graveyard, you can Dredge him and if you hit another one you can Dredge that, too!

If I discard a dredge card with Hazoret's Monument, can I turn that draw into dredge?


  1. Hazoret's Monument in play, Golgari Grave-Troll in hand

  2. Cast Storm Crow, triggering Hazoret's Monument

  3. Discard Golgari Grave-Troll, letting me draw off Monument

  4. Instead, dredge Golgari Grave-Troll

Does this work like I want it to?

Creatures. Spore Frog, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Siren Stormtamer, Glen Elendra Archmage, Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Mulldrifter, and Baleful Strix.

Instants/Sorceries. Beast Within (and/or Song of the Dryads), Heroic Intervention, Cyclonic Rift, and Buried Alive.

Not touching on planeswalkers, not a fan here outside of Liliana of the Veil. Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite feedback, upvotes, and suggestions are appreciated.

Last_Laugh on Any seats left on the bandwagon?

Not a bad start but I do have a few suggestions for you.

First, lands. Crystal Vein, Strip Mine, and Cephalid Coliseum are all good lands here. I'd also work on getting Verdant Catacombs or running off color fetches to take advantage of Muldrotha's built in Crucible of Worlds.

Next, artifacts/enchantments. Lotus Petal, Altar of Dementia, Secrets of the Dead, Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper), Rhystic Study, Elephant Grass, and Bear Umbra.

Creatures. Maybe Merciless Executioner, Fierce Empath, Shriekmaw, Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Grave-Troll and Spore Frog.
