Search your library for up to two creature cards and reveal them. Put one into your hand and the other into your graveyard. Then shuffle your library.

I finally got all the cards, so I've playtested the deck. I've found the 2x Deadbridge Goliath and 2x Jarad's Orders to be really helpful. If I was to put in the Corpsejack Menace and Vraska the Unseen from the sideboard, I would take out the Jarad's Orders . That's how it worked best in the tests.
Then you might wanna try Body Double . You can keep a creature safe in the 'yard while he does the dirty work. It's nice with Jarad's Orders because you can plop something in the graveyard and grab Body Double to copy it.
@HyrdaDOOM666 Jarad's Orders doesn't really fit the deck. It is supposed to be aggro, and the maximum CMC that I want is 3. Plus, I couldn't benefit as much from that card as I could using it in a deck that works off of cards in my graveyard. Thanks for the suggestion though!
@kg77wiseguy Experiment One can pretty much be another Rakdos Cackler along with a turn 2 Lotleth Troll or Brushstrider . Speaking of Brushstrider , I was thinking about replacing him with either Scavenging Ooze or Pack Rat .
Scavenging Ooze gives me grave hate along with one evolve trigger for Spearmint One.
Pack Rat can get ridiculous and also gives me multiple evolve triggers for Spearmint.
Which one do you like better?
I'd replace the Burning-Tree Emissary with Sylvan Caryatid , and Deathrite Shaman for Deadbridge Goliath , and Grisly Spectacle for Jarad's Orders . I'm pretty partial toward scavenge, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt. Also, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch seems like it could be replaced by a Chaos Imps or something more... Jund.
Good deck though!
Pyro451, thanks for the advice! as you can see, i do have Grisly Salvage in my sideboard. i run Jarad's Orders over Salvage because of 2 reasons: 1) it lets me retrieve specific creatures, and 2) it lets me reshuffle my library in case i'm getting... unwanted draws. Nemesis of Mortals is really cool, and i've considered it heavily for this deck, but the deal breaker is this; it requires having creatures in my graveyard, which is something this deck doesn't do very well with. lastly, Slitherhead is one of my favorite creatures in this deck! his synergy with Lotleth Troll and with Varolz makes him an invaluable asset, not to mention that he's my only 1 drop.
I think this deck works real well with the scavenge mechanic and I think that is great. I would personally recommend that you take out the three Jarad's Orders . While they might help your scavenge engine it would be more efficient for you to replace them with Grisly Salvage . It will allow you to pick up a land/creature and put some creatures in your graveyard. I would also recommend you subtract at least one Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord since you can easily pick him up if you have to discard him. If you are trying for Aggro then I can not recommend more highly that you put in the fourth Dreg Mangler and Deadbridge Goliath . They are amazing for putting pressure on you opponent. I think that you don't need the four Slitherhead you could just as easily replace them with four Nemesis of Mortals which go really well with the graveyard theme. I don't think you need another Varolz, the Scar-Striped because that is too many of the same legendary and you will just have empty cards in hand especially considering he can regenerate. I think that Bile Blight Doom Blade and Nessian Wilds Ravager do not work with your deck and I would say that you should not put them in their.
ok! so, my first and arguably best piece of advice; look at my golgari deck, Golgari Love Their Graveyards. it's undefeated at 4 fnm thus far (though i don't put that b/c i don't want to sound conceited), so i must be doing something right!
i like what you've got going here; a good solid basis. Jarad's Orders would go wonderfully in this deck, as would Lotleth Troll . both of those cards flush things into your graveyard, which if i heard right, is something of a goal for you. make absolutely sure to acquire some Deadbridge Goliath . whether cast or scavenged for his mana cost thanks to Varolz, he's a quintessential staple in any graveyard love deck.
also, consider Reaper of the Wilds . she can be hexproof, use deathtouch to kill just about anything out there, and if/when she dies, 4 mana for 4 +1 counters is pretty dang sweet, if not 8 with Corpsejack out.
