Hissing Quagmire Discussion

smiffdemon on Ishkanah Stuff

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!

The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~

Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?

Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.

Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)

Protection: Asceticism, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Heroic Intervention

Tutors: Green Sun's Zenith, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.

The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.

If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:

Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

clayperce, first off, thanks for the comment and upvote. The Jaddi Offshoot works surprisingly well, especially considering the two additional lands I run, including the set of Evolving Wilds and the two Blighted Woodlands, so it gets an A in my opinion. Now, for your suggestions.

  • Hissing Quagmire is basically there in a last-resort blocking scenario, or when I need to use it to close out the game with a few other creatures. Other than those times, I basically never activate it.

  • Weenies really aren't a problem for me, and if they were, since I'm in Red, I'd definitely pick Arlinn Kord over Rhonas the Indomitable as a trample enabler.

  • Regarding the flyer hate, I really don't see that many fliers at my LGS. Honestly, the last time I think I saw a flyer was blue/white flash in Kaladesh Standard.

  • Blighted Fen is an interesting thought. However, there always seems to be a throw away creature on my opponent's field whenever I've tried it out in the past, so it's kind of a turn off for that reason.

They're slow, but maybe some Hissing Quagmire? IMO they're good in general, and GREAT when you can recur them with Ramunap Excavator!

Please keep us posted on how it goes!

Looks great; big +1 from me!

I've been working on a Golgari brew; here's a couple thoughts based on my testing so far:

  • Do you have room for Blighted Fen?
  • The ability to recur Hissing Quagmire from the graveyard is just amazing. Can your manabase remotely support it as a 3- or 4-of?
  • I've found weenie decks to be a really hard match-up, as they can chump block for days, and are just SO much faster. I ended up adding some Trample (from Rhonas the Indomitable, though I like Nature's Way too) and also going really big on Removal to make up for it. I like the idea of your Jaddi Offshoot in the sideboard though. How are they working for you?
  • It seems like 25% (maybe even more) of my meta is Temur Energy decks (that were recently running Temur Marvel). I have no idea of course if pesky Thopter tokens and brutal Glorybringers will be a force in HOU Standard (and of course I have no idea about your meta). But you might consider some Flyerhate (e.g., Plummet or Ishkanah, Grafwidow) for your sideboard, as placeholders.

Draw well!

For Attune with Aether:

-1 Forest
-1 Hissing Quagmire
-2 Swamp

+4 Attune with Aether

I disagree with taking out Creatures for Nissa, as they are the chief way you get . You are also now going to have more Instants, so less chance of Creatures.

I would do this:

-1 Blossoming Defense
-2 Grotesque Mutation

+3 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

If you find the you miss Grotesque Mutation you can slot it back in for something else, however most games should be finished before you need likelink.

It's cool to play Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord instead of Meren. He's less played as the Commander than Meren but share the same strategy. Like cklise said, check out Jarad's list on EDHREC.com It's full of cards other players use in their Jarad decks.

My friend as a Savra, Queen of the Golgari deck. He killed me a few times with Jarad, swinging Golgari Grave-Troll to my face. Lord of Extinction is similar too. You can also use Bonehoard.

Also, you should play more mana ramp. Sakura-Tribe Elder, Cultivate, etc. You don't need that much basic lands too, you can use more dual lands and utility lands. Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, etc.
