Lhurgoyf Discussion

Tasigur, the Golden Fang can help put stuff in the graveyard and get you things. Lotleth Troll can move creatures from hand to graveyard to buff itself at instant speed for cute combat tricks.

Tarmogoyf is required. Just kidding! It'd help, but I know most people aren't made of money. That said, Lhurgoyf can be cut for more of other creatures.

Maybe Satyr Wayfinder or Sakura-Tribe Elder instead of Mulch? Still gets you land, and gives a blocker/adds a creature to the graveyard.

litlamzetiv Thanks so much for your detailed suggestions. I can't believe I had forgotten about Lhurgoyf this whole time. Also, as far as Canal Dredger is concerned, I opted against them only because I couldn't find the card for play online. I knew about the other two you mentioned, but only after reading your comment (I think I'm starting to forget things in my old age.) Once again, thanks for the help, and I'll definitely be taking a look at your deck.

I like the twist on the theme, though I wonder if it's not playing too hard against itself. For example, Gurzigost is counter intuitive to this deck as he plays against the Splinterfright. While you might want to retrieve some items from your graveyard, you may be better off just sticking things there that you're happy putting there.

Abilities that work well with this strategy include: Cycling, discard effects (including Spellshapers, & Grandeur, & Dredge) and effects that also benefit from having things in the graveyard (Threshold and Delirium). Other cards that boost themselves based upon graveyard contents (since you're already B&G, I'd suggest Lhurgoyf, Mortivore, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord).

I also would tend to eschew non-creature spells, as they don't help pump Splinterfright. For example:

Bow of Nylea (grants deathtouch) -> Archetype of FinalityReito Lantern (fills library) -> Epitaph Golem, Junktroller, or Canal DredgerRing of Kalonia (gives trample) -> Brawn

Those are just some ideas. If you'd like to see what I did with this deck, you can see it here:https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/goyf-1/

nice, I've never heard of Lhurgoyf before. I'll look into getting that one, especially where it's less than 50 cents atm.

Any recommendations for countering the graveyard hate?

@S1ayerMonkey Elite is a pretty cool card, but if you're thinking of building this deck then I would suggest Lhurgoyf as it's only 1 mana more than elite and gets out of hand even faster. But at the level of play my group is at and how rampant graveyard hate is, I can't afford too many cards with conditional power/toughness that depend on the graveyard.

Granted. Have fun with your Lhurgoyfs!

I like what you've got going here.

I'd get rid of some of the small vanilla beaters like Leatherback Baloth and Swordwise Centaur for stuff that scales for multiplayer -- Lhurgoyf, Copperhoof Vorrac, Bonehoard, Forgotten Ancient. All are cheap, but potentially become huge.

Bellowing Tanglewurm and Roughshod Mentor are some budget-friendly sources of evasion.

Penthoplayer on Damia, Sage of ALWAYS DRAWING

Looking though this deck, I am quite confused. You run ABUR duals, but not shocks, fetches, or checks, which are a bit more useful for color fixing. You also don't run any ramp from library, such as Nature's Lore, Wood Elves, Skyshroud Claim, or Farseek to make duals by themselves an ok decision, and you aren't running Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, or Explosive Vegetation to make a high concentration of basics a good idea.

Birds of Paradise and Deathrite Shaman are extremely good ramp in you're colors, and they fix your colors.

I can't see Tarmogoyf as a good card in commander, and if you just need a beat stick, Lhurgoyf or Lord of Extinction are better options.
