Creature — Human Warrior
When Golgari Thug is put into a graveyard from play, put target creature card in your graveyard on top of your library.
Dredge 4 (If you would draw a card, instead you may put exactly four cards from the top of your library into your graveyard. If you do, return this card from your graveyard to your hand. Otherwise, draw a card.)

Golgari Thug I think about

Cut your land down to 21, at least 2 of your lands should be Dakmor Salvage.
Depending on your budget you want either Bloodghast, Nether Traitor or Bloodsoaked Champion, basically you need a creature you can play from the graveyard to the battlefield. Veilborn Ghoul isn't a good choice, even Haunted Dead is better...
Golgari Thug, rarely is there a dredge deck without him, replace Corpse Churn.
Cut Explore too, for Conflagrate again, it is an ideal card for a graveyard strategy.

Golgari Thug worth a thought?
Can put your important creatures back on top of deck from the graveyard when it dies and Dredge stuff when you need it to.
I also quite like Smallpox in a Gitrog deck, not sure if it suits your build though.

This deck seems really cool, I love dredge and I love it when you can be even more explosive than dredge. The only thing I would recommend is exchanging 1 Golgari Thug for the 4th Stinkweed Imp. If you're going to get that dredge on, maximize it!

I need some more perspectives on this:
Which is best in this monoblack budget aggro deck?

Nighthowler: great synergy with Golgari Thug, makes deck more susceptible to graveyard hate, but more resilient to removal, triggers heroic, threat in itself, can ramp quickly with no card loss, but doesn't provide a sac outlet.
Grafted Wargear: buffs earlier and provides free sorcery speed sac outlet, lack of artifact recursion makes it susceptible to removal/accidental dredge and runs into artifact hate like Stony Silence and Pithing Needle, 1 time cost for free buffs the rest of the game.

Thanks! I appreciate that. This will be the 3rd deck I actually build IRL so I have to be really mindful of what cards to pick.
Yeah, Golgari Thug is the backbone of this deck. I use him almost exclusively as a sacrificial lamb of sorts to pump up Crypt of Agadeem, generate tokens, and dig for creatures. My favorite interaction is with Disciple of Bolas looping the 2 of them to pick out my best fighters from the grave and gain some life (this gets ridiculous with Grafted Wargear in play and becomes almost like a cheaper Sphinx's Revelation).
You're totally right about the sweepers. Golgari Thug, Bloodsoaked Champion, and Xathrid Necromancer all help recover from boardwipes (and may actually help my board state out if I have multiple necromancers in play beforehand), but unfortunately I don't have any copies of Drown in Sorrow so I will have to try Mutilate in place (which may work better since T3 is usually reserved for playing the necromancer I need anyways). Thanks for the suggestion!

I really like it. It was well thought through. I wouldn't have thought that Golgari Thug was a warrior. I like the synergy with Tragic Slip especially. I recently just thought of this. You can bounce back from boardwipes better than most decks. Have you thought of using Drown in Sorrow maybe in the side?
