Lord of Extinction Discussion

an_Elder_Dragon on Torpor Scavenge (opinions and upvote please!)

Oooooh boy. I have been DYING to see a nice Scavenge deck with Varolz! I will have to use this as reference! Some suggestions that I have as far as scavenge creatures are Lord of Extinction and Skullbriar, the Walking Grave. Both of them will continuously get larger and larger as you play and Skullbriar can even be a possible win con for you, especially if you through in Stitch Together.

Hey there, I have a few suggestions:

Phyrexian Reclamation to replace/supplement Vampiric Rites. Why get a random card from your deck when you can get exactly what you need from your graveyard? Other interesting card draw/tutor/recycle cards for you to consider are Survival of the Fittest, Oversold Cemetery (very good for you, I think!), Fauna Shaman, and Evolutionary Leap.

Cards that care about how many creatures are in your graveyard or all graveyards, such as Golgari Grave-Troll, Nighthowler, Lord of Extinction (counts all cards), and especially Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, who is also a sacrifice outlet AND has built-in recursion.

Eternal Witness, which is a really great card in pretty much any green deck.

Replace Sifter of Skulls with Pawn of Ulamog, although it is really up to your personal preference.

Cards that put permanents/creatures into play from the top of your library, such as Aid from the Cowl, Gamekeeper, or especially Lurking Predators.

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip and/or Garruk, Caller of Beasts. They both help you put more creature cards into your hand AND put creatures from your hand onto the battlefield.

And, lastly, you may want to consider some more cards that will help you hit your land drops, such as Satyr Wayfinder or Mulch.

Hey man don't worry about it, that's what this site is for :). Also ask the people at the stores for help, not necessarily he employees cause they might just try to sell you stuff.

I can't quite think of a cheaper Grim Flayer, it's sort of on a level of its own which I would advise getting at least one. And you don't necessarily have to get all 4 in one buy, stagnate it like I do. But creatures that just dump stuff into your graveyard would be Nyx Weaver or Splinterfright. They're both good cause nyx you can use to get back a card and splinter gets bigger by the turn and has trample. And as far as traverse, try tcgplayer.com. Lots of stores across America use the site to sell cards and they're usually cheaper than in person. Plus they're cards and can come through usps so shipping is like a dollar. I was like you when I first started, my first deck was even BG too. I went to clubs and stores to play and I got WRECKED, so I asked for help and all the people there were really nice and helpful. feel free to ask more questions if you need and I look forward to seeing how your deck plays out. And nice getting a Lord of Extinction, I've always wanted one. You should also get Rancor so you can make sure your big guys have trample

You could probably make great use of Grisly Salvage because it digs for creatures and lands while it increases the number of cards in your graveyard.

Also, you could use combos like Jarad's Order + Brawn + Lord of Extinction (search for both and put Brawn in your graveyard and Lord of Extinction gets trample).

Easy recursion might be Genesis as said previously. Especially since you might mill them into your graveyard.

Also, I'd say Progenitor Mimic might be useful to clone your lords at your upkeep. Or clone Lord of Extinction as a wincon.

Also, maybe give yourself some good will of giving yourself haste zombies with Concordant Crossroads.

Also Unholy Grotto so you can remill the same Zombie over and over and guarantee Zombie tokens with Sidisi.

First i want to say this looks like a great deck!

some suggestions i can make are;

maybe cut Vulturous Zombie. It's just a big creature, and not even as big as Lord of Extinction.

I like Winding Constrictor, it's super good with meren expirence counters and great with mazirek

Diabolic Intent is an expensive tutor but it's better than diabolic tutor so that's a possible upgrade

How often do you get your Coretapper and Magistrate's Scepter combo up and running?

How has Bontu the Glorified been?

Victimize is good if you can fit it in.

Survival of the Fittest is nasty too

Phyrexian Tower is another free sac outlet

Do your games play out in a way that you're hitting lands drop enough? it dosen't look like you have a crazy amount of card draw or and overabundance of land ramp.

Maybe you could run Yavimaya Elder, Wood Elves or Graveborn Muse to help

Cards with triggers when they die are best. Kokusho, the Evening Star and Scuttling Doom Engine are good choices. You already have Lord of Extinction which is great. Wall of Blood is dangerous, but a great combo kill if you are ahead on life. It's also absolutely nuts in 2by. I also suggest reanimation. Animate Dead, Reanimate, and Beacon of Unrest are good choices, and Phyrexian Delver is reanimate on a stick, a must include imo.
