Reanimator is generally the best way to run Jarad, which makes cards like Deadbridge Chant , Sheoldred, Whispering One and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed very good fits. Fleshbag Marauder does a lot of work when it is used with recursion and Gravecrawler loves to throw itself at its ETB. And as it is aptly named, Jarad's Orders does a phenomenal job of filling your yard and grabbing key creatures for your hand. Speaking of which, Lord of Extinction , Mossbridge Troll , Sepulchral Primordial , Grave Titan , Kokusho, the Evening Star , Woodfall Primus and Terastodon are all fatties that work well with Jarad.
Utility wise though, Seedborn Muse will allow you to cause shenanigans on your opponents turn as well as your own, while Puppeteer Clique lets you not only yoink your opponents' dead creatures, but add salt in the wound by making them lose life as you sac them. Savra, Queen of the Golgari is just the gift that keeps on giving and Lotleth Troll helps throw fatties into your yard so that you can reanimate them for dirt cheap. Speaking of which, Victimize , Dread Return and Beacon of Unrest are all fantastic alternatives to Sheoldred to help make that dream a reality.
Reign of the Pit doubles as removal and yet another target to for you to sac while occasionally providing you with a body for blocking, should you need it. And should everything you love be in your graveyard, Living Death will throw it back onto the field for you, while hopefully setting back your opponents. And of course, Grave Pact is all but required since given how much this general lets you butcher your own creatures.
Another good Modern technique to follow with Golgari is the self-mill. This uses cards like Splinterfright , Ghoultree , Lotleth Troll , and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord . Good mill spells would be Grisly Salvage , Mulch , and Satyr Wayfinder .
Here is my deck to help you visualize that.
Far / Away is excellent removal.
If you're using Sidisi for reanimation, you could check out my Standard Abzan reanimator deck here.
I've got ideas out the buttcrack for my own Sidisi reanimator deck, so it's probably the next EDH deck I'll make... when I acquire a Sidisi, that is.
I like the idea of cards like Bloodghast and Grave Crawler. However, I'm not the person who plays as aggressive as possible, and if the opponent has a blocker, both can be kind of dead cards because they don't even block. I still like having red because in my opinion Lightning Axe is one of the more powerful cards in this deck as is Reckless Wurm. At the moment, I'm trying something like this:
4 Fauna Shaman 4 Lotleth Troll 4 Squee, Goblin Nabob 4 Reckless Wurm 4 Nightshade Assassin 4 Grave Scrabbler 4 Lightning Axe 4 Zombie Infestation 2 Big Game Hunter 1 Muck Drubb 2 Fiery Temper 23 lands
I'm not sure about having a full playset of Zombie Infestations here as Lotleth Troll and Fauna Shaman both seem to be a bit better with Squee, but getting a 2/2 token each turn for free is not the worst.
I'm also not sure about the Faithless Looting. Of course it can make some good card advantage, but on the other hand it's kind of slow. I removed Oona's Prowler as it has no synergy with Squee an it's another 2 drop which there are already plenty of.
Skull Collector seems to be good, if you play 4 Bloodghast and 4 Grave Crawler, which are easy to replay, but I think most of the time, I want to use my third turn for some madnessing.
I also thought about putting a single Scourge Devil into the deck to make the final attack with the Wurms more efficient and as being the end of the Fauna Shaman chain.
About Dark Withering, I have to agree. To many games were lost because it had no legal target. I can't imagine, how 4 Big Game Hunters would work but I'll test it, as it also can be a card to sideboard out (and against Tron, it can kill Emrakul, the Aeons Torn before he attacks).
Unfortunately, I have no magic online so it will take some time to test this list and to get the cards. I really like your BG list though, and while I'm still not sure about the Mask and Oonas Prowler, it seems to be pretty strong. Does this beat things like Affinity and Pod?
I'd max out the Hardened Scales , get a few Experiment One , and replace the Retribution of the Ancients with Unmake and replace a Putrefy with Mortify . As good as Desecration Demon is, I think that you'd be better off with a third Corpsejack Menace and a fourth Herald of Anafenza . Your mana curve is also really low on two drops. I'm personally fond of Tidehollow Sculler , but it doesn't fit the deck well.
I'd cut the Kin-Tree Invocation down to one, as it will only be useful late game.
Burst of Strength is a nice combat trick, allowing you outlast at the end of your turn, then when your opponent declares attackers, you untap the outlasted guy so he can be a surprise blocker, and it gets a boost as well.
Bramblewood Paragon is a nice two drop.Deranged Outcast might work.Lotleth Troll can get big quickly, and the regeneration makes him hard to kill.Quirion Dryad is insanely powerful in this kind of deck. She will get bigger practically every turn.
Hey rockmsockmhobo thanks for your suggestions!
I like Lotleth Troll , but the Threshold cards don't work well because I can't cast them from the yard. Unburial Rites is perfect because it actually costs less in the yard and pitching it early helps tremendously. My big threats all have ETB triggers, so the Monstrosity doesn't fit the deck mechanics as well as the others.
First of all thanks for commenting and rating!
The reason you don't see Muck Drubb in the sideboard anymore is that I am constantly trying new things out while I'm too lazy to update the description =).
Like you suggested, I am thinking of adding green and I am already putting a decklist together. I still have to work out certain things like how many noncreature-madness-spells to play if I play a certain number of Fauna Shaman and Lotleth Troll and the mana base requires a lot of testing. Also I have to find a way to get those expensive land cards, as this is kind of a budget-friendly list without the fetches.
I like cards like Necrogen Mists , Mask of Memory and Deepcavern Imp a lot, but I want to try keep madnessing at instant speed. Especially against opponents who don't know your deck it can be quite important to surprise them with end of turn stuff (and a "end-of-draw-step-Psychotic Episode ). I think I will (as you suggested) try to do some shenanigans with the mask instead of the looting.
Another problem I have is the issue of how many Squee, Goblin Nabob I should be running. He works so well with Zombie Infestation and also good with Faithless Looting and he would also be great with Fauna Shaman and Lotleth Troll , but he is not so good on his own or with only Oona's Prowler.
If you can come up with a decklist for jund colored madness, I would really appreciate that because I really need help with it (also thought about asking pro player Patrick Dickmann who sometimes is in my local store).Maybe we could work a list out together.
Maybe include some tri lands?
I have a similar deck but i splashed a little bit of red to add Faithless Looting . great card to discard creatures and get your girsly, mulch and satyrs. Maybe also consider Lotleth Troll somewhere in here. Great for discarding your creatures in your opening hand and survive early game.
another fun card is Moldgraf Monstrosity
