Maybe Jarad's Orders in a way its a Entomb stapled to a tutor all for a balanced 4 converted mana cost. Splashing in red for Avatar of Discord and Demigod of Revenge . Bloodbond March is out there, but could be useful.
Entomb would be an awesome card in this deck...alas this is Modern as you already said.
You're right about Jarad's Orders being too slow and expensive, but Fauna Shaman doesn't put a creature in my graveyard. If I don't have Lotleth Troll which is the only way I have to get Death's Shadow in my graveyard, Jarad's Orders gives me both pieces of what I need to scavenge 13 +1/+1 counters on a Lotleth Troll or Vampire Nighthawk
I would be eager to replace Jarad's Orders if there was something else though.
I was going to suggest Entomb then realised that this was modern.
I don't really like Jarad's Orders in a modern deck. There has to be a better way - I just can't think of one that's legal in modern. You could try replacing Jarad's Orders with Fauna Shaman . Kinda does the same thing. A lot cheaper.
well Jarad's Orders is only there as a budget solution so you could run a single copy of Kalonian Hydra ideally you would just want to run multiple copies of Kalonian Hydra at least the budget version also lets u find something to scavenge as well.
like u said, still out of budget though :/
I do like Jarad's Orders for creature search, but usually when I want to draw it's more for removal of some sort. It is an inch away from making its way into the deck, once I decide which cards I would really want to use the Orders on. Also, I'm not sure yet which cards I would take out for them.
Mana screw like that really shouldn't happen. If you don't have at least one forest and one swamp in your opening hand, you need to mulligan. I feel more comfortable with 3 lands in an opening hand.
Dark Confidant is pretty cool, but I don't know if he is an integral part of what you want to accomplish like you said. The deck is pretty creature heavy so Grisly Salvage should do a good job of getting cards to the yard to be scavenged You could also consider Life from the Loam to help with mana if you feel like you arn't quite getting what you need. This way to dont have to add more lands and can get your graveyard nice and full of scavenge creatures.
I've always thought dredge and scavenge mechanics could make a pretty gnarly modern deck.
So i guess maybe -4 Dark Confidant and +2 Jarad's Orders then the other two spaces could be used for maybe another Lotleth Troll (I love that card) or Life from the Loam I was going to recomemend Golgari Grave-Troll but I think he is banned in modern.
