Polluted Mire Discussion

ibstudent2200 on feed varolz

Phyrexian Dreadnought and Death's Shadow work great in Varolz, though they aren't the cheapest cards to acquire. Force of Savagery, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Hunted Troll, Hunted Horror, Groundbreaker, and Nyxathid are reasonable cards to scavenge, though some are harder to get into your graveyard.

Corpsejack Menace, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Hardened Scales, and Retribution of the Ancients all play nicely with +1/+1 counters.

You are playing a green commander that can be quite aggressive. Therefore, you should be playing Rancor.

I'd probably try to play closer to 37 lands with Varolz.

If Worldslayer has a place anywhere in the format, it's in a Varolz deck, since you can regenerate him to survive the first boardwipe (possibly more, depending on whether you make tokens or blow up the Worldslayer in response to the damage trigger).

Blood Seeker > Tresspasser's Curse, though neither card is very good (unless you're hosing a specific combo).

Fertile Ground > Gift of Paradise.

Prey Upon > Cartouche of Strength.

Polluted Mire > Cartouche of Ambition. There are hundreds of other cards I could list here, but I'd rather have a land that cycles in a format where you never stop wanting to hit land drops than this cartouche.

Victim of Night/Go for the Throat > Reave Soul.

Silence the Believers > Edifice of Authority.

Basilisk Collar/Gorgon Flail/Gorgon's Head > Sultai Runemark.

You should really cut all your Ironshell Beetle variants. Run cards like Satyr Wayfinder, Elvish Visionary, Golgari Brownscale, Shambling Shell, or Yavimaya Elder instead.

Golgari Signet > Golgari Cluestone.

Lull > Haze of Pollen, though I would advise against running either card.

Nature's Claim > Natural State.

Sword of the Animist > Explorer's Scope.

I like Inspiring Call more than Destined // Lead, but the two aren't nearly as comparable as some of the other cards listed.

Giant Growth > Shed Weakness, though I wouldn't recommend running either card.

Seal of Doom > Spidery Grasp.

Wickerbough Elder > Springsage Ritual.

You have a lot of creature slots that are due for upgrades.

cobalt127 on Deck Cycling the Cycling Deck

First off I love that this is a Zur deck that isn't hardcore voltron. As for suggestions there's some older cycling lands that you could use, if you don't mind having land that enters tapped: Barren Moor, Drifting Meadow, Lonely Sandbar, Polluted Mire, Remote Isle, Secluded Steppe.

Yeah It That Betrays I realize may not be the best option here, even though I like it, it's costly.

Oh but I know what you can add, some of the cycle lands like Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, Tranquil Thicket, Slippery Karst, Blasted Landscape and Ash Barrens. I just thought since you had Archfiend of Ifnir you might want perhaps 2 of these or something.

Additionally here are a few other considerations:

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Westvale Abbey  Flip, Creakwood Liege, and Dictate of Erebos.

Polluted Mire and Slippery Karst could come out for Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket

Ghoulcaller's Bell for Mesmeric Orb uber mill!

Gravecrawler for Reassembling Skeleton or Bloodghast you could even have a combo with Perilous Forays

Viridian Emissary- not strong enough? maybe Satyr Wayfinder

Zulaport Cutthroat- Blood Artist if you're playing in a multiplayer format there will be more creatures dying then just your own, therefore i think blood artist is better

upgrade Murder to Hero's Downfall

upgrade Rise from the Grave to Zombify, or remove entirely

Corpse Connoisseur is great!

Champion of Stray Souls have you thought this card is too slow

Scourge of Nel Toth is this card too slow

Verdant Force good enough?

if you're trying to combo, maybe Tooth and Nail.

also if you're running Living Death maybe run more graveyard hate, Agent of Erebos and Scavenging Ooze

Great deck! but why Polluted Mire and not Barren Moor? And... why Liliana's Shade? It looks like a sub-optimal way to get a land. Also, have you considered Liliana Vess? It's the walker-tutor :D

Since Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord has that sweet reanimate ability by sacrificing a Forest and a Swamp, you could add some cards that abuse lands in your graveyard.

The Gitrog Monster is great in the Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck that I run, and allows a lot of cycling through your lands and library to find more goodies to dump into your graveyard.

Centaur Vinecrasher is another really great card. He's proved to be explosive for me on turn 4-6.

I can't recommend Worm Harvest enough. You can cast it infinitely from your graveyard as long as you have a land to dump, and it gives you lots of tokens for sacrificing.

I also run the green and black cycle lands (Slippery Karst and Polluted Mire) and they're both great to dump for their cycling cost.

You can also check out my list (Meren's Grave Shenanigans) for any suggestions. I have a few cards to acquire yet, but I'm happy with its performance.
