Mortivore Discussion

litlamzetiv on Splinterfright's Something-or-Other

3 weeks ago

I like the twist on the theme, though I wonder if it's not playing too hard against itself. For example, Gurzigost is counter intuitive to this deck as he plays against the Splinterfright. While you might want to retrieve some items from your graveyard, you may be better off just sticking things there that you're happy putting there.

Abilities that work well with this strategy include: Cycling, discard effects (including Spellshapers, & Grandeur, & Dredge) and effects that also benefit from having things in the graveyard (Threshold and Delirium). Other cards that boost themselves based upon graveyard contents (since you're already B&G, I'd suggest Lhurgoyf, Mortivore, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord).

I also would tend to eschew non-creature spells, as they don't help pump Splinterfright. For example:

Bow of Nylea (grants deathtouch) -> Archetype of FinalityReito Lantern (fills library) -> Epitaph Golem, Junktroller, or Canal DredgerRing of Kalonia (gives trample) -> Brawn

Those are just some ideas. If you'd like to see what I did with this deck, you can see it here:https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/goyf-1/

I feel Sewer Nemesis and Mortivore should be in this deck. They fit great here. Awesome deck though! +1.

I'd argue that Gonti, Lord of Luxury fits better for jack - the whole ability to use an enemy's deck against them, along with deathtouch, and a hint of class.

other options that I thought about for him were Dire Fleet Ravager or Nekrataal. (although the ravager fits well for Hatchet face too, or Nekrataal for murderrat)

For Crawler, there needs to be some built in regenerate - Slith Bloodletter and Mortivore come to mind, but if you wanted to keep it legendary, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade works too. Masticore fits more for the acid spitting aspect, but not so much for the growth / adaptation.

Burnscar feels like Jaya Ballard, Task Mage

Darkling Stalker could go for alot of the lesser members, like night hag or Nyx. Avatar of Woe wise feels like it belongs in the deck somehow.

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni as a non-general version of bonesaw?

just tossing out ideas, seeing if anything sticks. Not finished with worm, only around chap 27 at the time of posting this. glad to see another story-based deck around!

Tap lands like Dismal Backwater or Jwar Isle Refuge can go. Here's some lands you don't have listed that are good in my opinion Sunken Hollow, Watery Grave, Tainted Isle, Sunken Ruins and Ash Barrens.

Tunnel Vision can be a funny combo with things like Junktroller, Hinder, and Spell Crumple.

Dreamborn Muse, Riddlekeeper, Oblivion Sower can be good if you're exiling stuff, Manic Scribe, Crypt Ghast, Mortivore maybe?, Guiltfeeder, Nighthowler, Eater of the Dead, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Thousand-Year Elixir, Wight of Precinct Six, Consecrated Sphinx, Arcane Denial, Mirage Mirror can be secretly good, Stolen Goods, Praetor's Grasp and Dream Fracture.

I feel like the defender route can be... alright but with dimir you might as well just have good useful creatures that so happen to have decent toughness... also I feel like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Oona, Queen of the Fae, Thunder Wall, Wall of Spears, Reinforced Bulwark, and Psychic Membrane are either don't fit or you can find something better.

Swible on Jarad, Golgari Vore Lord EDH

@S1ayerMonkey

Also Mortivore.

The best way to not crumble to gravehate is to not rely heavily on the graveyard, so for Jarad this mean don't let your creatures sit in the graveyard too long before trying to recur them, or good ramp so you can cast big fatties naturally. Another way to deal with the gravehate is to run enough good grave-filling cards that even if your 'yard gets exiled you can bounce back with a couple good activation's of Hermit Druid or Nyx Weaver. And finally don't put your eggs too heavily into the Lord of Extinction basket, this means that if your biggest bomb gets exiled you have numerous backup plans/creatures.

Twincast is a great option you can pair with any instant or sorcery card and then double the effect. You also might find cards like Mind Funeral, Startled Awake  Flip, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, Mortivore, and Muddle the Mixture of good value as well, just to name a few.

DeRotto17 on Mill Deck

Twincast paired with Mind Funeral makes for a pretty nice combo, also some cards that might work well here are Startled Awake  Flip, Mortivore, and Increasing Confusion. I'd recommend taking out a few swamps and replacing them with a few Drowned Catacomb.
