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.)

Darth_Savage Yeah, this is probably my last time fixing this up idk.
I've also removed Crucible of Worlds fetching for it takes too long, and the payoff is the ability to use a land from the graveyard, with absolutely no way to properly use it, I've also replaced Ratchet Bomb with Trepanation Blade and Codex Shredder, there's no point in more permanent removal, especially if it's slow.
So now, I guess it's a good enough toolbox deck. Probably.

If this were my deck and I needed to make cuts from the list I would trim the following:
Oashra Cultivator seems a little slow but does have the advantage of being something your opponents will likely leave alone.
Champion of Stray Souls expensive and was a bit clunky when I used it. Would need haste for it to be worth it.
Deadbridge Chant the 'at random' part seems unreliable in a deck where your graveyard will be pretty big. YMMV.
Svogthos, the Restless Tomb is another card I tried hard to make work but it really needs trample to be useful. I'd sub in Geier Reach Sanitarium here though so this isn't really bringing the deck down to size.
Nyx Weaver just not a fan personally, it does fill the task of priming the graveyard.
Jarad's Orders good card and I use it in my Meren deck but since it only ends up putting one card into the yard maybe it doesn't make the cut here. It does draw you a creature too but I'm working on the assumption you're trying to turbo as many creatures into the yard as possible so this doesn't do enough on that front.
You may want to consider Command Beacon so you can cut down on the cost of recurring Izoni [though that might give you reason to keep the Excavator, etc]
Hopefully this might help you in making some decisions on what to cut.

Darth_Savage a while back I had Rolling Temblor while having Young Pyromancer be replaced by Vault Skirge for an early game foothold/forcing a removal. While also having Increasing Confusion instead of Startled Awake Flip so I can start fetching from the graveyard and gaining free removals via Golgari Thug and Vengeful Pharaoh
The problem is that the current meta involves Eidolon of the Great Revel or Phyrexian Obliterator, hence the 4CMC sorceries while having outright removal and not creature damage, I can use it whenever I want, and I don't need to sacrifice permanents.
My current problem right now is my other old form of removal- using dredge via Golgari Thug/Stinkweed Imp and Vengeful Pharaoh no longer works as well, since I can't mill myself, but again, like you said I need an evasive creature for Dowsing Dagger Flip, therefore Persistent Nightmare comes close.

Hey, looks good, nice job adapting the Guild Kit into a Commander deck :)
There's a few cards here that can be upgraded with better budget cards:
- Regrowth > Recollect
- Farhaven Elf > District Guide: Farhaven puts a Basic Forest or Swamp directly into play not into your hand.
- Putrid Imp > Erstwhile Trooper
- Dread Return > Vigor Mortis: reanimation spell you can potentially use twice.
- Carrion Feeder > Golgari Rotwurm
- Viscera Seer > Drooling Groodion
Other budget cards to consider adding:
- Command Tower: one of the best lands in Commander.
- Tainted Wood
- Golgari Thug
- Fauna Shaman: can be a repeatable tutor, puts a creature into your graveyard and then you tutor for any creature from your library. Very good with a dredge creature as a way to constantly get it into the graveyard.
- Jarad's Orders
- Diabolic Intent
- Animate Dead
- Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Reclamation Sage
- Krav, the Unredeemed: sac outlet and draw engine, good creature to sac with Jarad since he can get a ton of power.
- Seasons Past: powerful spell with graveyard strategies.
- Tortured Existence: discard a creature card to recur any other creature from your graveyard. Good when dredge creatures are in your hand.
- Nyx Weaver
- Phyrexian Delver: good target for Protean Hulk
- Beast Within: unconditional permanent instant removal it's a staple green card in Commander.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Creeping Chill
- Undercity Uprising
- Status / Statue
- Rolling Spoil
- Vigorspore Wurm
- Swarm Guildmage
- Sisters of Stone Death
- Rot Shambler
- Rhizome Lurcher
- Slum Reaper
- 1x Forest
- 1x Swamp
Good luck with your deck.

Golgari Thug is probably even worse than the troll.
It That Betrays' mana cost is absurd.
Lord of Extinction, without evasion, isn't anything fantastic.
Mycoloth usually doesn't live to your upkeep.

So is Golgari Thug just there to combo with discard to get combo elements out of your hand? Seems like kinda of a weird choice. Might be necessary with only the Melira combo. I run both Mikaeus and Melira hulk piles atm so it might be not as necessary.

Hey everyone, I got pretty lucky with my pulls from the 2HG at PAX this weekend. Specifically I opened up the following cards I'm looking to trade:
1.) Golgari Thug
2.) Frantic Search
I'm just looking into people's binders really so let me know if you're interested.
A couple other cards I opened and would be willing to trade are:

I see you have a lot of surveil cards in here, do you really think cards like Barrier of Bones and Dimir Informant are worth it over dredge cards like Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug? If the idea is to dump cards in the graveyard, I have a feeling dredge is the better way to go.
