Necrotic Ooze Discussion

TheRedGoat on The Masque of the Black Death

Thrumming Stone, to my knowledge, is better used with tutors and a means to combo off or swing for damage once all the creatures are all out (hence why the apostle decks, which themselves can tutor for demons, run it so often). However, I propose you have another option for getting all of your rats in hand and making them useful. Secret Salvage in tandem with Mortal Combat.

In searching for cards for your build here, I also realized how silly Necrotic Ooze really is when you have a Pack Rat in grave.

Use this information how you will.

Mirror-Mad Phantasm doesn't work the way you want, unfortunately. Notice it says "a card called mirror-mad phantasm", not "mirror-mad phantasm"? That means you shuffle mairsil into the deck, then mill yourself until you find mirror-mad phantasm (good luck, since it's in exile...) This interaction is specifically mentioned in the cards errata, presumably due to cards like Necrotic Ooze.

The main strategy I'd go with is generating large amounts of artifact tokens/creatures to win with either riches or crazy recursion loops with giant beaters, sacking a few myr or thopters with something like Champion of Stray Souls to bring back all your giant beasties. This is just a bunch of possible options that would help with that strategy.

If you're looking at planeswalkers, consider the OG Liliana Vess for her tutor ability

I see Triskelion is in your maybe board, if you ever want to make the deck more competitive that plus Necrotic Ooze and Phyrexian Devourer to combo off

Anafenza exiles creatures so they don't go to your opponents' graveyards, which seems to make Necrotic Ooze weaker. Karador, Ghost Chieftain seems to work better but could be useful in the 99 as well. Soul of the Harvest could be good for card draw. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Sheoldred, Whispering One, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth are always nice to have and provide some recursion. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite combos with Kormus Bell and Urborg.

99% sure you are missing Phyrexian Devourer for Necrotic Ooze

mlequesne on Make an Entrance, Take your Leave (Karador Combo)

Hi bro, there is a nice combo that you're missing : Necrotic Ooze with Triskelion (or Walking Ballista) and Phyrexian Devourer. You just need to have ooze on the battlefield and the rest on the graveyard. Easy to accomplish if you get Buried Alive. And if you add that combo I recommend to add also more tutors, even the cheap ones would work, like Diabolic Tutor, Dark Petition or even Razaketh's Rite.

cya =)

Disciple of Bolas and Necrotic Ooze can be fun mono-B creatures to test. With so much potential mana, you might also like to test a Torment of Hailfire or Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, + something silly like Howl from Beyond for a kill point.

Happy brewing!
