Memorial to Folly Discussion

Hi, KiroiSenko, thank you for the comments. I think we can try it in the easiest way by swap the Liliana or Vraska out since we had better keep the creatures number high enough. But we should notice that the wombo combo is kind of late game plan, and at that moment I prefer to get the giant back with Memorial to Folly at EOT or even Liliana's ult, instead of waiting for two turns. And in the test, all non-creature things maybe milled out before the Lich enter the battlefield. Maybe some Golgari Findbroker? I will work on this.

HorridBEAST Thanks for the advice! I think a couple Memorial to Folly would be a great addition, especially if I mill over Charnel Troll. With 21 lands, I also saw that making some of my 5 drops was hard as well. so 23 lands makes more sense in my opinion. Thanks!

Looks sweet, but I'm not sure how reliably you will be able to cast your 5 drops with only 21 lands. Most decks with that kind of land count top out around 4 CMC. I could be wrong, that's just my first impression.

I really think Memorial to Folly is going to be really good in these GB decks to get back creatures flipped over by Stitcher's Supplier and Glowspore Shaman

I went more midrange in my version of you are interested:

First off, the mana base is all junked up. 16 Swamp mana-base is kind of shaky, even with Memorial to Folly.

Second off, the curve is a bit wonky. Liliana, the Necromancer needs to go, as it is not only not particularly synergetic with the tribal theme, but also takes up an already crowded 5-mana cost spell slot, as well as conflicting with the 2 other Liliana cards.

Arisen Gorgon is essentially a vanilla 3/3 for 3 mana, and I can't help but feel is just not worth running. Plague Belcher, Dread Shade, Isareth the Awakener, or even Ammit Eternal are more worth running over the Gorgon in my opinion.

Dread Wanderer obviously the best choice as a 1-drop creature, and you can pick them up for roughly a dollar each right now, so I don't see why Diregraf Ghoul and Festering Mummy and taking that spot.

Anyways, just taking about mainboard here, I would recommend:

-1 Liliana, the Necromancer -4 Cradle of the Accursed -1 Memorial to Folly -1 Rise from the Grave (maybe sideboard; Liliana does the same thing and more) -3 Arisen Gorgon

+6 Swamp +2 Isareth the Awakener +2 Plague Belcher +2 Dread Wanderer

There, replaced some cards to add more consistency and cohesion, and the cards I suggest to go in are valued less all together than the cards I suggested to drop from the Mainboard.

I would suggest these revisions to the mainboard: +4 Phyrexian Crusader -4 Scar

-2 Swamp +2 Memorial to Folly

-4 Swamp +4 Inkmoth Nexus (I know this is a budget deck, but I believe this will receive a reprint soon, and while 1-2 copies is expensive, it won't break the wallet)

-2 Septic Rats +2 Ichorclaw Myr

-2 Blowfly Infestation +2 Nest of Scarabs

+1 Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon -1 Virulent Wound

You def want to cut away your non creatures, You should run around 40 creatures to have a good chance of her trigger.

Also, add these to your lands:
Cephalid Coliseum
Cabal Pit
Memorial to Folly
Buried Ruin

BEISCORE I'm thinking you can probably take out Spring, though I usually play commander and haven't played Standard in a while. You have seven basic lands, and as it currently stands, you can search for up to 6 basic lands (Grow from the Ashes allows for up to 3 land tutors and 3 copies of Spring means you can tutor 3 basic lands). If you really want to tutor basic lands, I suggest substituting Hostile Desert for Evolving Wilds (why exile lands permanently for a temporary token?). Better options may be Memorial to Folly, Memorial to Glory, or even Memorial to War.
