Golgari Locket Discussion

It is based off undergrowth :). Its cards I currently have but I do have multiples of most of them. I have played it multiple times and it's only lost twice both times due to bad pulls. (Once too much mana, and once not enough.) Admittedly though that win record doesn't mean a lot because the people that I'm playing against are mostly beginners like me. Llanowar Elves and Golgari Locket help with the mana issue as well as Glowspore Shaman and Grow from the Ashes. Budget isn't really an issue within reason. To kickstart my collection I've probably collectively spent around $500. (my fiance and I started playing together so we buy a lot then split the cards.) Mostly what I want to find out is are there cards in the deck that I don't really need or aren't doing any good. I seem to have a bad habit of shoving cards into decks just because I like the card or I'm excited about it i.e. Phylactery Lich. Also I'd like to know if there are cards that I should put more of in this deck or cards that I should add that would strengthen it. I have a limited pool of people to play against so I can't really get a thorough testing. I'm also going to add this post to the description somewhat in order to increase the intuitiveness of my request. Thanks for the help!

- I agree with most of this, but here's some possible cards.
- Momir Vig, Simic Visionary is a good tutor card and is definitely budget at below $5.
- You could try replacing the signets with Golgari Locket, Dimir Locket, and/or Selesnya Locket.
- In addition, you could try using the Simic Cluestone.
- The signets are more like mana converters, so if you want to improve your ramp, try those.
- You could also look at Simic Growth Chamber.
- Elvish Piper for those higher cost creatures.

@Mapk I actually just took out Jin-Gitaxias in my most recent update, because I found it too detrimental in a casual format. This deck isn't tuned to face against the cEDH decks (T&T, DD Zur, FC Tazri, CV Teferi, etc), and has some problems that I am aware of (high curve, difficult combos, lacking tutors, etc), and I'm fine with that. So that's the main reason I didn't stick with Jin-Gitaxias, basically it's too good. Your suggestion is too good haha!
@goodair I have more hype than I should from the new Ravnica set. WOTC has been releasing better and better sets ever since I joined. From Jarad v Izzet duel deck, to Eldrazi, to werewolves, to Greek mythology, to Egyptian mythology, and now back to Jarad! I love the flavor text on Golgari Locket so much. Anyway, I think a few have a good chance of replacing cards, like Underrealm Lich. It's cool, it doesn't exactly draw, but it's better than Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, and is a resilient little bugger. I'm not too fond Doom Whisperer, I don't need more consistency/tutors and usually wouldn't want to pay 20 life to only mill 20 cards, even if it's probable I'll get 20 power from Sidisi's zombies. Izoni, Thousand-Eyed/Lazav, the Multifarious/Find // Finality are all good too, but probably won't find a home here. Gruesome Menagerie isn't great because this deck has no one-drops, I'll just play that and Mnemonic Betrayal in standard and be happy. What about you?
