@archer2244 I'll play with the idea of Lotleth Troll . I'll throw him into some of my test plays. Thanks!
@thraniery Awesome! I'll reference yours when I can, maybe pull some of your ideas. I looked over it briefly and it looks pretty good.
I think you don't need Evolving Wilds especially when you use Courser of Kruphix . Perhaps you should also add some discard in favour of Sign in Blood or Life's Legacy Also don't find Lotleth Troll very effective in a deck with only 16 creatures.
I love Splinterfright decks! My first deck ever was a G/U version. I loved the look on people's faces when I would hit them with Splinterfright then summon Skaab Ruinator from the grave! Anyway, great deck! Do you think there might be a place for Lotleth Troll somewhere? He's difficult to deal with, cheap, pumps your graveyard, and grave hate doesn't shut him down.
Zombiepox is a somewhat established deck that runs Geralf's Messenger .
In modern u need to run another color with black to make it competitive. I like green for Abrupt Decay and Maelstrom Pulse but other colors could work as well. Something that allows u to deal with artifacts and enchantments.
Zombiepox includes playsets of Lotleth Troll Gravecrawler and Bloodghast with Vengevine as your finisher. Smallpox is the utility and combined with Liliana of the Veil as the engine of your deck u could do some nice damage.
I would suggest adding Lotleth Troll , he can help feed your Scavenging Ooze while still getting bigger. Maybe try to run a play set of the Troll and test your deck out, and from there you can gauge how many you actually need. And if you do like the Troll, I would suggest maybe dropping Dreg Mangler .
I've been working with a similar deck around here for the past month or so. These are some of the changes I've made over time:
What I don't like:
Nyx Weaver This card is just too slow for what you're trying to do with this deck. It really looks great on paper, but it consistently under performed at FNM.
Pharika, God of Affliction I really fell in love with this card and I tried to convince myself for so long that it was good. A few times it performed miracles, but it was never consistent enough to deserve a spot in the deck. When I took her out, things always went smoother.
Sylvan Caryatid sometimes it was nice to have some extra mana to play with, but after turn 4 she was basically useless to me. Maybe it's just the way my cards would always draw, but I couldn't get the same millage I got used to with this card while using this deck.
Hero's Downfall I really haven't had enough use for this card. As I'm sure you've experienced, pretty much any time you proc one of those Strength from the Fallen cards on a monster you've had it murder the crap out of anything that was forced to block you. So I kinda did away with the kill cards in favor of making sure I could proc and swing on every turn.
What I like:
Whip of Erebos This card is wonderful! Upon the recommendation of another player though, I tested my deck using 3 copies instead of just the 1 or 2 I would normally roll with. And it makes a huge difference to get this lifelink every game. I've tested with all 4 quantities of the card and found 3 to be the sweetspot for me.
Some cards to consider:
Lotleth Troll This card is my MVP. It has managed to stall the game when I was waiting for the right stuff to draw and it has trampled over anything I ever threw him at. And, when I really need to fill that graveyard fast he's a great way to dump some extra creatures I don't need when I've drawn too many from either the Eidolons or Kruphix's insight.
Courser of Kruphix Aside from being a pretty big wall most of the time, the extra life is nice and ability is great for skewing card draw in your favor. I run 3 right now and I'd recommend giving them a go some time.
Doomwake Giant I know it's a ton of mana in a deck like this, but that effect helps so much against weenies and tokens. Plus if the game ever goes on long enough (which it has for me a few times) I've pulled in a second copy and by then there's constellation procs everywhere. The giant is usually the card in my deck that eats the most spot removal and counterspells. Plus, I usually just feed them to the troll and whip them in later. It procs constellation and hits hard naturally on its own with that haste.
In my opinion you have too many large creatures, I would put:
4x Birds of Paradise OR 4x Llanowar Elves 1x Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite 1x Griselbrand 1x Iona, Shield of Emeria 1x Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur 4x Lotleth Troll 1x Platinum Emperion 1x Reya Dawnbringer 4x Wild Mongrel
