jacobpmesser on Golgari Graveyard (Modern) w/ new Fiend Artisan

You don't need Rancor. You've got Splinterfright.

Keep it simple. Get cards in the grave. Play cheap big creatures that put Tarmogoyf to shame. Use your creatures to take care of whatever problems you have.

4 Hedron Crab 4 Stitcher's Supplier, 4 Satyr Wayfinder Wayfinder is better. You want that land in your hand or on the battlefield. You don't want a dead draw into a land. You need to draw fuel.

Artisan Fiend, Spinterfright and Nighthowler can all be snatched by Unearth. So...

4 Artisan Fiend 4 Splinterfright (your trampler) 3-4 Nighthowler, 4 Unearth

If you want to use Claim for redundancy, +4 Tarmogoyf or the +4 Boneyard Wurm. Myself, I like a little p/t in case they Relic or RIP. Keep it around til you get your answer. Maybe Grim Flayer? But if you play more 1-2cc ETB's, I could see more Claim. Try a 1 of Call of the Death-Dweller.

You've got all these cheap creatures in your deck. 2 Lazav, the Multifarious. Need answers? Eldritch Evolution, 2 Neoform

What are your problems? Creatures. Artifacts. Enchantments. 1 Plague Engineer 2 Plaguecrafter 1 Reclamation Sage 1 Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Nameless Inversion Thrashing Brontodon
Costs three but he's got a 3/4 body so why not?

4 Force of Negation out of the side. You may want to board in 4 Force of Negation for RIP. I don't know how else you're going to beat it without a counterspell with Flashback. Play some number of Life from the Loam with Raven's Crime.

Late game shenanigans: Sidisi, Brood Tyrant or you could Neoform/Eldritch sooner. Genesis because that's awesome. Alt win: Laboratory Maniac

I don't know. Keep it together. Streamline the idea because the deck you'll be playing against, people have refined it to hell the past few years.

Side note - You can Collected Company these creatures. Imagine that. Not so good idea Nightmare Shepherd. Eh idea Creeping Chill Maybe out of the side? Burn is real.

Artatras on Lazav with the many faces

Hey!

That's a really solid deck, congratulations!

I especially like the inclusion of Psychatog. It seems highly synergistic with the deck's strategy.

A few considerations:

Haste is incredibly important. What's even more important is the fact that its enabler has as low of a CMC as possible. For this reason, although Yahenni, Undying Partisan could have some synergy with the deck if you are not including too many looting effects, I think you would be better off with a Nether Traitor or, even better, a Gingerbrute. Being 1 or 2 mana cheaper means you can transition from them to something else with ease. On top of that, they also provide evasion.

Nighthowler seems to me a little too situational and unreliable. Your graveyard shouldn't be too stocked with creatures, as it would be risky. As regards your opponents', it's too dependent on the matchup.

As regards the Laboratory Maniac package, I would rather go for Demonic Consultation and Tainted Pact instead of Mirror-Mad Phantasm and Mesmeric Orb. It seems faster and more reliable.

Good job and keep your list up to date!

Gakros on Cleverly Named Graveyard Deck

Hi fellow necromancer centaur, you can try: 1.Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord + Splinterfright / Golgari Grave-Troll / Nighthowler and similar creatures and bomb the entire table.
2.Kessig Cagebreakers / Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
3.Vizkopa Guildmage + Gnaw to the Bone and one shot the entire table
4. By far my favorite is Magister of Worth. Both effects benefit you and if they pick the mass reanimation you can sacrifice her in response to her trigger, she goes to the graveyard and you get to stack it so she enters last so you get 1 more time the trigger, you can politic you way through it. Really amazing card


and if you are having trouble with blue mages and combo Mindslicer. I cant count how many games he has won me.

my a little more tuned and combo deck: Karador Hulkweaver Chieftain

Normal_Night on Self-Mill Polukranos Unchained

2 months ago

More Order of Midnight would help get Polukranos, Unchained back from the self mill to avoid the escape cost. Blightbeetle is good, but it’s more of a sideboard card because of how specific it is. Also Scuttlemutt , Piper of the Swarm , and Greenwood Sentinel all feel out of place, they don’t help with milling and aren’t worth having for blockers. Maybe keep Piper of the Swarm... maybe. You’re also running a bit land heavy, I’d cut it down to 24 lands you shouldn’t need more than that.

For budget cards to add I’d recommend Glowspore Shaman, Nighthowler, Grisly Salvage, and Kraul Harpooner.

Scytec on The Manhattan Project

This looks pretty fun, I personally prefer Meren of Clan Nel Toth, but Jarad is also an excellent Golgari commander. For self mill, I am a fan of Stitcher's Supplier and Satyr Wayfinder with a fair amount of recursion ability. Also, if you have one laying around, Meren would slot in here as well just as a good recursion piece. Diabolic Intent would be an excellent tutor for you over Diabolic Tutor. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is similarly good. I have to add in a Nighthowler mention because I absolutely love that card. :p Keep up the awesome work. Good luck!

HyperViper191 on Super Sadistic Squirrels

consider adding Erebos, Bleak-Hearted, Ashnod's Altar, Pitiless Plunderer and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician.

some possible cuts: Morbid Curiosity, Nighthowler, Liliana Vess

just a little laundry list of things i might do :)

ksleazy on "Library.exe has stopped working" | Phenax Primer

Phenax was one of my first EDH decks, love him to death. Great list!

I would consider all the cards with "inspired". I see you have Macar, but there are more that work really well in this deck. IMO the best ones you don't have are Arbiter of the Ideal, Daring Thief, Disciple of Deceit, and Siren of the Silent Song.

Also Rogue's Passage is definitely worth a slot with your massive beaters like Wight of Precinct Six, Consuming Aberration, Mortivore, Nighthowler.

Also Thassa's Oracle... Early game it's just good filtering + a decent body for Phenax, while late game you can win out of the blue. In my most recent game with Phenax I had a consuming aberration out with nothing else on board. I had already milled roughly 20 cards from each opponent. At endstep, I milled an opponent for 60. I untap with an 80/80 consuming aberration, opponents all tapped out. I mill myself for 80... Confused looks... I cycle Vizier of Tumbling Sands, untap the aberration, mill myself again. Cast Thassa's Oracle for the win, great fun!
