Golgari Thug

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 Discussion

DMFF on BUG Scavenger

Really cool and dirty deck idea. I really love how spicy things can get out of nowhere. That said, I do feel like this has a lot of random singletons and could be more refined. Have you thought about running Brainspoil as a tutor for Varolz? It's odd, but even 1 or 2 can be a big help. Golgari Thug might be a good inclusion if your Varolz have all died and they come with dredge as well!

Whatever you end up doing with it, well done on a super fun and surprising deck.

I would say that Demon of Death's Gate is a perfectly good magic card that has not found a home. I made this a while ago when GGT was still legal, but it works the same with Golgari Thug:

Modern BfB

The key to abusing demon is Bridge from Below. Use demon as a non-banned Dread Return.

Thanks LikeSpider943, I hadn't taken much notice of the new core set cards but Stitcher's Supplier seems like it would be a good fit just for the enters the battlefield trigger, if I can get it into the yard efficiently as a possible chump blocker later on in the game it is even more powerful. Should be worth testing it in place of Golgari Thug or Gnarled Scarhide even though they each serve their purpose of recursion or enabling delirium right now.

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..

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.

FancyTuesday on What happens if you sacrifice ...

The card that was on top before that. In this case Golgari Thug is sacrificed as part of the resolution of Vaevictis's ability, so Vaevictis's ability must completely resolve before new objects can be added to the stack. After the Vaevictis trigger has resolved all triggers waiting to go on the stack are added to it in APNAP order, and when it comes to Golgari Thug it resolves and puts a card from your graveyard on top of your library.

If you sacrifice Golgari Thug to Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, do you get the card from Golgari Thug or the card that was on top before that?
