Hello MurderForBrunch and... LORD Pikobyte!

Thanks for the suggestions! All great ideas!

What holds me back to Shriekmaw is its ability to interact with one of the deck's strategies (sacrifice). It's more of a creature(!) Who kills, Dies when he enters the battlefield (Butcher of Malakir; Syr Konrad, the Grim) and delivers body to the grave (Splinterfright; Nighthowler); And it's still elemental (Risen Reef) ...

I really liked the artifact because I still don't have one to destroy ... I'll consider it.

Thank you very much for your time!

A good trick for getting more punch out of Gyrus is to run guys who have more power than their printed stats might indicate. For instance, Arcbound Overseer has 0 power when he's in the graveyard, but as soon as you return him, he's attacking for 6! Other examples include Clockwork Dragon, Drakestown Forgotten, Nighthowler, Sewer Nemesis, Thought Gorger, Ignition Team, Crovax the Cursed, Spike Hatcher, Naya Soulbeast and Workhorse. Your opponents will be surprised how often "2 or less" won't feel like it!

Other cards that fit your general strategy include Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and Unearth, which can return a lot of the same cards as Gyrus. You might also want more removal, such as Bone Shredder, Ravenous Baboons and Garza's Assassin. Good luck!

Hey man, I love your deck! I've been trying to upgrade my Sidisi deck, and I was wondering if you could help. Here's the deck: The Deck that Death Forgot. Just one question about your deck: Why are you running Nighthowler? It does make a pretty big beater, but I don't think it's worth the slot. I would rather run some more card draw seeing as you're only running three, like Echo of Eons. Hope this helps, and as always, Happy Tapping!

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
