Winding Constrictor might be useful to get more counters and Jarad's Orders could be a fun tutor to get Varolz or Lotleth Troll

Mortiferus_Rosa on Not Another Dredge Deck

I still havent played enough to decide on Driven vs Rally. Rally is definitely superior for the damages and forcing trades but Driven does have some advantages of its own. Sticking with Rally for the moment though.

My list preforms quite well without the Narcos. I do trade of some of that traditional explosive start but the Lotleth Trolls (which is what I brought in for the Narcos) pull their own weight. Yes, I do wish the Trolls were Narcos every time I dredge one, but I am glad they are Trolls and not Narcos when they are in my opening hand or I draw one naturally.

At this time I dont want to dedicate 4 of my sideboard slots to the mirror matchup. First off, Dredge is surprisingly not that popular at my FNM. I am the only one who plays it consistently. So, on the off chance I do run across it I will pretty much be racing as is, siding in Bojuka Bog for my graveyard hate (which I like because if Im not worried about accidentally dredging it and it cant be stopped) and playing around any graveyard hate they might have.

Also, with regards to your statement about playing against Leyline of the Void, it doesnt stop my deck dead. Lotleth Troll has regularly won me games against it as they focus so hard on mulliganing to a leyline/sometimes even side out their targeted removal I just stick a Lotleth, discard my creatures for the counters and beat their face in. I also do have Golgari Charm for enchantment removal, and I run that because it is a great multitool for wiping weenies and protecting against some boardwipes (Supreme Verdict and Anger of the Gods).

Vengeful Pharaoh is in my sideboard specifically for the Death's Shadow matchup (and I guess decks that are incapable of going wide too). It isnt a card I side in often, but when I do it does its job. Death's Shadow is a very popular deck at my FNM.

A one of Gnaw to the Bone doesnt slow down the race against burn and if I successfully cast it puts the game completely out of the Burn players reach. Yes, it can be played around by the Burn player but if he is actively playing around it I am still buying myself time.

I do agree, I want a second Lightning Axe in my sideboard and am evaluating on what to take out for it. At the moment I am leaning on just taking out the Thoughtseizes which would open up an extra slot for me to add something. I dont often side in Thoughtseize and when I do it rarely makes an impact.

In a nutshell, if a card cant be cast/interact from the graveyard, or doesnt facilitate dredging (ie, has a discard effect)

Grisly Salvage / Lotleth Troll / Abrupt Decay / Stubborn Denial / Tasigur, the Golden Fang / Eldritch Evolution / Hooting Mandrills

just a few cards that come to mind that might be useful.

Hi there Ghenni,

I think you can use Abrupt Decay, because it is an all-purpose removal. Also you can use some tech cards like Thought Scour as a draw and a mill card. Relentless Dead and Ghoulcaller's Chant can be used for returning Lotleth Troll and some other creatures.

You can try Rancor to empower deck's aggro elements

I was thinking about what could replace Signal the Clans and all I could come up with were Intuition and Chord of Calling.


Muddle the Mixture over Daze, since your blue sources may not be Islands
Scrubland over Plateau, since RW are your least important colors
Putrid Imp over Lotleth Troll, for better Ad Naus
Fast mana and ramp like Mana Crypt, Chrome Mox, and Deathrite Shaman
Sylvan Library

Looking again, I am not seeing much use for the Unburial Rites line, since it also relies on Nooze mana. The reason you run two outlets is to get around incidental exile. On that note, can't Nooze already use the activated abilities of the elementals you mill? You could replace one of them with Scorched Rusalka and sac Horde to Nooze. Better yet, you could use Spikeshot Elder so you don't have to pass priority or you can use the Deathrite Shaman I mentioned earlier with the Devoted Druid untap to drain your opponents out.

I'll get you more feedback when I have the chance.

I found an answer to your previous comment: "Gravecrawler needs more zombies, and Vengevine is better with Gravecrawler in the deck, and Lotleth Troll needs to be replaced by Grim Flayer... Have you considered using Tidehollow Sculler? It also has the added benefit of being an artifact in the yard for Tarmogoyf and Grim Flayer

I have myself a BG counters BG +1/+1 Counters and I find very useful ability like scavenge, very important creatures are Winding Constrictor, Varolz, the Scar-Striped and Lotleth Troll. To boost everything I play Hardened Scales too.

I'm seeing a problem with the land base...you definitely need Overgrown Tomb and Woodland Cemetery. I would also say Blooming Marsh, however at most I would say 3. Or hey, if you are wanting to keep it at a budget, even go for Llanowar Wastes. Other budget BG dual lands would be Hissing Quagmire and Temple of Malady, but I would not recommend playing those as much coming into play tapped and what not.

Your removal spells are pretty good, though I would try to replace Putrefy with Abrupt Decay, it is an amazing card and hits pretty much every permanent popular in Modern.

Lotleth Troll + Gravecrawler is a good combo. Feed Gravecrawler to the troll, then cast crawler from the grave, value.
