Treasured Find can replay instants like Bioshift and Golgari Charm as well as permanents. At first exiling Treasured Find may seem like a trade off until you consider Nature's Spiral will be as good as exiled without a way to return it to your hand when you want it.
I see how Corpsejack Menace is more essential to your deck than mine. And he is a huge bull's eye to defend. Ring of Xathrid definitely works if you have the mana. Golgari Charm ? 2 mana and 3 effects to choose from including regenerate all creatures. Regeneration and Skeletal Grimace are cheaper enchantments with similar effects. Is moving it from creature to creature important?
Since you have faster and more reliable ways to return creatures from the graveyard what about Kalonian Hydra or Doubling Season in place of Deadbridge Chant for more ways to double counters and tokens?
I like Rune-Scarred Demon . Definitely will do that. The Gravecrawler is to be comboed with Skullclamp , and if my Glissa is out, then I definitely take advantage of the draw as much as possible. So he alone is sort of useless, but when skullclamp and Glissa are out, he does some work. Bloodghast is also built around this mechanic.
Both of the Primordial will need some thinking about, as right now I'm contemplating throwing in some "return card from graveyard to hand" cards like Nature's Spiral , Recollect , Regrowth , and Stitch Together . These might fill in the gaps and make the deck run smoother. Ideas on that? And thank you for your input :)
Well, Regrowth isn't modern legal, and I forgot that Eternal Witness was modern legal. However in certain decks Nature's Spiral would do better because of it's cost. But for this deck it would work out really nicely thanks to Fauna Shaman , Heartwood Storyteller and Mirrorweave . Thanks for the suggestion and +1 Virgys~
I originally had Treasured Find but swapped them out for Nature's Spiral because it did the same thing but didnt exile the card when it was done (and costs 1G instead of BG). Probably worth considering for your decks as well.
The Lotleth Troll is definitely a card I have been considering swapping out for my Ring of Kalonia . I will never get rid of my Ring of Xathrid s because the value of regenerating my Corpsejack Menace or Primordial Hydra is just too great.
I definitely like some of those cards, but I'm not sure what to take out? Currently I'm thinking of...
Removing one more card. I'm not sure what?
Adding a basic land to go back up to 37 lands.
Regarding your Mortivore -like cards, I hardly ever actually win by saccing Mortivore . (Really he's just a placeholder until I happen upon a Lord of Extinction .) He's often smaller than Ghoultree , and I usually prefer something with more utility such as Pelakka Wurm or Sylvan Primordial , even if they don't hurt quite as much.
What do you think of these changes? Still trying to figure out one more card to remove.
