Moldgraf Scavenger Discussion

I messed around with Moldgraf Scavenger before I got goyf. It is a strictly worse goyf, but fits your delirium theme. How has Pain Seer worked out in place of bob? Have you tried Asylum Visitor?

Ok, I see a few ways this could turn into a solid teir 2.5 modern deck: a saproling/fungus or eldrazi(Kozilek's Predator/Nest Invader swarm running stuff like Obelisk of Urd,

A Cryptolith Rite/Life and Limb/Utopia Mycon/Psychotrope Thallid/Vitaspore Thallid type 'I play my library through mana/sacrifice combo shenanigains,

A Bloodbriar/Tukatongue Thallid/Rot Shambler/Emrakul's Evangel beatdown/sacrifice/bulk up build with a bunch of token producing critters, sac outlets, and stuff that gets bigger when you sac stuff.

Sakura-Tribe Elder and Utopia Mycon could also assist a ramp style sacrifice deck.

Theres also the possibility of an Eldritch Evolution/emerge combo deck running creatures like Root-Kin Ally/Tangle Golem for a cheap Decimator of the Provinces Mockery of Nature and convoke token generators like Scatter the Seeds or similar.

A 'stall for big spells' is also a thing- Thelonite Hermit doesn't use the stack for morph, so running a control setup aiming to get him morphed on the battlefield with Aspect of Mongoose on him is possible.

Fog/Blunt the Assault/Brindle Boar/Gristleback etc to stall to midgame then cast some high value eldrazi or beating down with Moldgraf Scavenger/Undergrowth Scavenger and similar delirum will work. Harrow will help a lot with this.

Splashing blue could allow for Prophet of Kruphix shenanigans, and that blue/green return to hand emerge eldrazi, along with combo options.

Splashing black could also allow Distended Mindbender and Nezumi Bone-Reader for hand control.

If you decide the archetype you want to play (aggro, midrange, control) I'll try to come up with cards to help support it. Building something strong normally involves emphasising its strengths as much as possible- meaning some cards get silly expensive, but cheaper cards with synergy to almost match them exist. Good luck and happy brewing.

Okay, seems a good first build.

I would remove Gurmag Angler because it strength is that you can play it for cheap through its delve.Delve, however, lets you remove cards from your graveyard - and you were hoping to bring some of them back. Or remove: Moldgraf Scavenger, these two cards do not work well together.

Because you have discard as a theme: I would include Liliana's Specter, a discard on a stick is nice to have in this case

Udinaas on Sultai Delirium

I'll just list some of the cards I personaly like for delirium (budget):

first Wild-Field Scarecrow. It fixes color, which is especialy useful in three-color deck, and adds two types to delirium. Also you can actively get it into your graveyard (unlike your other artifact creatures). Speaking of color-fixing, Fork in the Road helps with that and puts a land into your graveyard for delirium, which is usualy not the easiest card type to get there. Third Fortune's Favor is realy interesting and funny card, in my opinion. And in delirium deck, you can decide based not by what you need in your hand, but what you need in your graveyard.

Now for cards, that reward delirium, I would again point out three. My favourite of these, Kindly Stranger  Flip. Although 2/3 for 3 is not so amazing, 4/3 that also kills something for 6 sounds good. Moldgraf Scavenger is a nice one. Attacking with a 3/4 by turn three is not a bad deal (and is very doable). Finaly, the delirium star Gnarlwood Dryad. What's not to like about this one? 1/1 deadtouch for G? sure. 3/3 deadtouch for G later? definitely.

Hope some of this helps.

AndWelcomeToTheJam I'll make the swap, the reasons for Star over Sphere are pretty narrow, as you mentioned and if it does happen, it happens. Innocent Blood is more efficient, and as you mentioned, it is another card type for Delirium. Nausea I will add in the sideboard since it is a good board wipe against said decks.

Recover819 I think Werebear is awesome for this deck, but Moldgraf Scavenger does have some tight competition with it. I'll be able to free up some space for the Dead Weights, probably two in main and side (I'll be working on sideboard after the mainboard in a bit). The Graf Rats + Midnight Scavengers combo is cool, and I may add it in depending on how fast I can achieve the combo. I'll definitely add in the artifact lands, because they really help with Delirium.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

This is an interesting deck. You could run Hooting Mandrills if you want to do all out delver since Moldgraf Scavenger needs card in the graveyard while the delver and the angler takes cards out. Ravenous Rats is great in this deck. If you wanted more control I would but either some counterspell to replace Slip Through Space in a Delver matchup. However, you could sideboard it against control or burn match ups.. However, if you wanted to go aggressive I would keep it.

Overall this is a very nice brew, It's interested I might give it a try on untap.

elementalheroflamewingman on Tarmogoyf substitute

6 months ago

Doesn't really matter what you substitute, just save up for Tarmogoyf asap. Nothing comes close to a Goyf because it is relevant in BGx decks at any point of the game. Any substitute either takes continuous investment like Scavenging Ooze, or can't get past midgame numbers like Gnarlwood Dryad and Moldgraf Scavenger. I've actually won with Grizzly Bears when I needed a place holder for goyfs, so don't waste your cash on more expensive options, because there really isn't a replacement for it.
