Lotleth Troll Discussion

Hey TankyHamster, I'm really glad you enjoy the deck!
If you want to build a budget version of this deck, then you can substitute in Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse and some more basics pretty easily and it will still maintain the integrity of what this deck does, it'll just be a turn or two slower on average. You will still be able to capitalize on the landfall trigger from Hedron Crab pretty respectably, which is important.
Street Wraith has gone up in price lately too. you can sub in some extra Nyx Weavers in their place to help the mill effort. I kinda want to throw more into my build but they just don't quite make the cut.
If you're gonna go HaM on the funsies, then Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is always a good time.
Lastly, if even Hedron Crab is out of your price range, then you'd be best off going two color BG, but yeah, not too much about the deck is very expencive, mostly just the land-base.
Good luck, and have fun buddy! :D

I have thoughts...
Deathreap Ritual is strong draw condition in this sort of deck, keep in mind it says "each end step," so it counts opponents' turns too.
Dictate of Erebos is pretty oppressive in G/B, maybe don't run it if you have a sensitive playgroup.
You might have thought Bitterblossom was only for Modern, well you might have been WRONG! It sees play in Legacy too... And it's good here.
Bloodgift Demon is another Phyrexian Arena on a body, so now you can have one that's as pretty on the outside as it is on the inside.
Creeping Renaissance is a pretty slept on mass reanimation card, expect to hear a lot of "What!?"s and "I can't believe I've never seen that one!"s.
Keeping yourself alive is a breeze with Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper in play; it's some of the best life-gain in its colors.
Lotleth Troll is a great way to generate dredge without having to actually paying mana. And speaking of dredge...
We did just get Liliana, Death's Majesty though, and if I'm being honest, she's a much better fit than Liliana, the Last Hope. She feeds your graveyard as her +1 instead of a -2 while making a token, and her reanimate ability brings it straight to the field instead of your hand.
And, in a little over a week, you can pick up a Ramunap Excavator because now we have another card that does that.

I think you should work on focusing your deck a bit more, sultai dredge could be an interesting design. Firstly go down to 60 cards by cutting The Gitrog Monster it is a card that needs a very specific deck to work. From there you can focus more on dredge by going up to 4 Stinkweed Imp and 4 Dakmor Salvage. I would personally play 3 Splinterfright as it is just better than Sultai Ascendancy in fueling the grave for an easier to mange cost. Lotleth Troll is another card I think you should consider to accomplish the fueling of your graveyard. From there you should address what payoffs you have, Nemesis of Mortals is not enough; Ghoultree, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Bonehoard, and Kessig Cagebreakers are all great payoffs to the dredge plan. Also Tasigur, the Golden Fang will always be one or two mana in this deck which makes him a huge threat. Returning to Dakmor Salvage this syncs really well with Raven's Crime giving you more opportunities to dredge whilst also forcing your opponent to discard. My go to counter in sultai dredge would be Remand as dredge needs card draw to stay productive. To finish if you ever are looking to upgrade the deck in the future, Abrupt Decay is great removal in your colours; Liliana of the Veil is also a good choice sans budget. Also Life from the Loam is a must in dredge but you can get away with Satyr Wayfinder or Commune with the Gods.

Behold the Beyond allows you to tutor for a combo (and you're running reanimator cards so putting stuff in the yard isn't that bad).
Boundless Realms is a card I'd consider as well.
I'm still looking around for cards and ideas for my own non-competitive Gitrog deck.

Mainboard: +Lotleth Troll, +Dakmor Salvage, -Westvale Abbey, -Sequestered Stash, -1Mortal Combat, -Spider Spawning, -Gnaw to the Bone, -4Forest, +Balustrade Spy, +Stinkweed Imp,(maybes but expensive) +Life from the Loam, +Vengevine, +Bloodghast, +Gravecrawler, Fetch and Shock Lands (reduces lands in deck, which is an advantage for Mortal Combat).

12rreber Slitherhead is in the deck because of how susceptible to graveyard hate Splinterfright is. If I scavenge a slitherhead onto him he doesn't die when my graveyard get's exiled. As far as choosing black over blue, gives me Lotleth Troll and Nighthowler and better removal.

Sorry about the Lotleth Troll thing. I was looking at a different deck list at the same time. Ive been trying to build a grave shenanigan deck and looking for inspiration. I stumbled into this. Thanks for the inspiration, and I hope there is still hope for this deck.
