In terms of playing aggro, you usually want your average cost to be under 2. It takes too long to build up a field with the majority of 3 drops. And having one or two of a single card in your deck is usually just for key cards to the deck. It's better to be consistent than to have a couple of everything. Also, a deck theme is a always good thing to have. When you choose a deck theme, the cards within that deck will have better synergy throughout the game and a better possibility to build to a win. It seems like you're interested in working with your graveyard. You may consider looking into more creatures that work with or feed into the graveyard, such as Lotleth Troll or Deathrite Shaman . And cards like Grisly Salvage will also help to feed your grave. Throwing in some Thoughtseize and Abrupt Decay wouldn't hurt either. Taking away a key part of your opponent's hand or destroying anything with a mana cost of three or less (planeswalkers) is also nice. I would also consider pulling out Master of Waves because your devotion to Blue is pretty light.

Here's my attempt at a Golgari deck: Soylent Green Is Centaurs!. SpaderAce had a good idea I might try with replacing my Polukranos, World Eater with two (maybe three) Blood Baron of Vizkopa . Might take out 3 Polukranos, World Eater , the two Lotleth Troll and put in two Blood Baron of Vizkopa and three Lifebane Zombie . Any and all advice is welcome on my deck. I'd appreciate it. As far as your deck goes, it looks like it would be fun to play. +1 from me.

Satyr Wayfinder seems way better than Commune with the Gods -- especially with 3 Shadowborn Demon , you're gonna want 4x Satyrs. Also, it feels like your only way to interact well with your graveyard is Whip of Erebos (Deadbridge Chant is way too high on the curve to be reliable and only does something starting on T7 assuming it doesn't eat enchantment hate; just hard cast these creatures at that point), so you could consider running a few Obzedat's Aid -- which, btw, can reanimate some sweet planeswalkers. The Whip-Obzedat interaction is awesome but it doesn't feel consistent enough at this point to be anything but a magical christmasland outcome. It doesn't feel like you have much removal to speak of so I'm not sure what the point of Sepulchral Primordial is. Speaking of no removal, run some removal or you'll get run over, or a single Scavenging Ooze will ruin your entire deck. Abrupt Decay and Hero's Downfall Bile Blight -- you know the drill.

You could replace maybe half of these big dorks because even running it dry right now, it feels like you have way too many big guys in the board that you can only get into play if you get very good draws. You could cut some of these fatties and put more good stuff in (Shadowborn, Sylvan Primordial, Obzedat), and then actually run some control spells, as you don't really have any despite it being a control deck. If you don't draw a Lotleth Troll then you really don't do anything until turn 5, and you probably will lose in this scenario. It feels like you want more creatures that have broken ETB effects like Sylvan Primordial Shadowborn Demon Angel of Serenity -- Armada Wurm on turn 5 already gets outclassed by most midrange decks and doesn't really stop a Desecration Demon or an unstoppable horde of Pack Rat or Master of Waves or Stormbreath Dragon -- you get the idea.

Anyway, just a bunch of thoughts. I've seen people run this deck with varied success against top decks, and it's fun as hell, so keep at it if you like it.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Pharika, God of Affliction , and Deathrite Shaman don't quite work with each other that well, the shaman and Pharika both want to use what's in the graveyard, while Jarad wants it to stay there. I could see the shaman with pharika, just not shamaning your own creatures.

Having creatures you're going to want back out of the graveyard, Nyx Weaver could definitely help. keeps a constant supply in the graveyard for your use and takes back what you want to have.

Giant Adephage just feels weird here. like the rest of your deck is focussing on the graveyard, putting things there or taking them back, then he's just kind of /there/. And high-costing in here as well. Perhaps replace him to finish playsets of Lotleth Troll and Pack Rat to work on consistency? The Adephage does work well with the whip, but that's a 2-card combo, while you're milling yourself, that you're running a 2-of each?

Speaking of the whip, if the Adephage goes, I don't see a reason to leave it be. Some card advantage could be good in its place, Read the Bones or Underworld Connections both fill this pretty well

it might be a cost thing, but Putrefy seems generally worse than Hero's Downfall

I've thought about putting Lotleth Troll in the deck, but I couldn't think of what to take out for one.

I would use Lotleth Troll to discard expensive creatures from your hand and get a lot of benefit from it. I would also recommend Angel of Serenity as a great tempo advantage and a wincon.

Lotleth Troll says discard a card, not sacrifice a creature. This means that the card must be in your hand. Reanimation would do nothing for it.

I would look for some more fuel for Lotleth Troll and his discard ability. Maybe look into some cards with madness or unearth like Big Game Hunter or Dregscape Zombie to work with Gravecrawler . Bloodghast works too.

I like the deck a lot just keep the Canopy Cover , Thoughtseize , and Extirpate handy against decks running white. Last thing you want to do is invest cards into Lotleth Troll just for it to get zapped by Path to Exile and not be able to regenerate it.

A sideboard option to replace Deglamer with could be Nature's Claim or Golgari Charm they all have pros and cons. Deglamer can handle indestructible permanents while the others are cheaper or has multiple uses. User preference I guess. Price
