I prefer the more late-game approach. Generally, I just wait till I can cast 'em. If I'm super desperate I can Thoughtseize myself. Lotleth Troll is is an aggressive creature, which is countersynergistic with the rest of the deck really.
Back to the topic though...
Tymaret, the Murder King . Agent of the Fates would have been AMAZING as a 2/3 for 1B. I always wanted to make Pyrewild Shaman work in some kind of jund deck with Lotleth Troll . Also, I sometimes wonder if Mogis, God of Slaughter 's ability would have been better if it were a one-sided Killing Wave effect, but then if they don't have creatures it's just a dead card and giving it both abilities would be OP.
I'm not sure if Lotleth Troll is right for this deck. You don't really have any ways to interact with your graveyard and normally you'd rather be casting most of your creatures than discarding them to Lotleth Troll .I'd suggest moving him to your sideboard to have a resilient creature in control games. In his place, I'd suggest either 2 more Elvish Mystic or some Experiment One
Sorry, I'm a pothead, I tend to loose focus and points during discussion.
I was bringing up the comparison (based on my own experience) that a simpler less decision based deck does not make it a better deck, just simpler to pilot.
My deck has a very clear game plan to achieve the desired result but there are a lot of different possible interactions a long the way. For instance, do I animate my Mutavault to chump block with it so that Deathrite Shaman can exile it giving me a black mana source to regenerate my Lotleth Troll chump blocking or do I just chump block with DRS? and spend the 1 mana I would have used to animate the Mutavault to regenerate the Lotleth Troll ?
My deck for reference... 50 #'s of Grade A Beef -Golgari- Standard
My deck has a +1/+1 counter theme and heavily utilizes the graveyard. It benefits from having stuff in the grave for utility which is good because Grisly Salvage finds my win-con Kalonian Hydra which is also compatible with all my creatures (even SB) save Deathrite Shaman which is used for mana ramp and to feed off the grave, fitting the them in other ways.
Well gufymike just about everything in my deck is removal bait. If they hit this sucker instead of a pumped ScOoze or Lotleth Troll or in place of a Desecration Demon I'd be happy. (haven't had to use him in any real matches yet)
Thing is, my deck's tech is a little bit more advanced than creature/removal/swing/win and often has several different routes to take each turn. I feel Scourge of Skola Vale hitting the field will serve as a shield and allow for an extra "wrong" decision once in a while.
lol I think this guy will be the next Desecration Demon 1$ now, 10$ next block.
Sorry, APPLE01DOJ, I forgot to mention in the description that I am on a kind of modest budget of about $40-50 beyond the cards I currently own (I've added an update for the cards I still need). That is why I didn't go the Savageborn Hydra route, otherwise I would have jumped on it. Unfortunately, being on the budget also makes things like Sylvan Caryatid and Abrupt Decay a little beyond me at the moment.
I like the idea of the Grisly Salvage , I just need to get over the potential of losing some spells. Similarly, Lotleth Troll could take the place of Hero of Leina Tower . I'm curious why Corpsejack Menace doesn't work. I just started playing in November of this past year. Does he just get murdered/countered immediately?
Putrefy is another card I thought about when I decided to go green/black, but I figured with how large these creatures could get, combined with Mortal's Resolve, I would just run over their creatures, rather than side swipe them.
Thanks for the input.
