Putrefy Discussion

Gaze of Granite could be a solid board wipe.

Toxic Deluge and Damnation are some non-budget boardwipes.

Succumb to Temptation can be replaced by Sign in Blood .

Putrefy can be replaced by Beast Within

Dauthi Embrace seems fun!

Ooh, +1 from me for the write up - typically we call those primers, but i'll take what I can get. It's actually kind of rare to see a deck page with a well thought out description so you're awesome. But with just a few changes your write up can be so much better! First - you need to tag your cards, you can do this by using the following code for example:

[[putrefy]]

And for reference use Epochalyptik's Do you want to write a primer? for additional tips and tricks. Also, besides hopping into the feature queue, here's another helpful guide for How to get more views on your decks.

I have replaced Mirari with Arcane Encyclopedia and Death Mutation with Putrefy , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.23 to 4.11, which is a very good thing.

bushido_man96, I actually had Putrefy in those decks when I first built them, but replaced it with Assassin's Trophy when that card was released, but I should have replaced Death Mutation with that card, instead.

Also, on this subject, why is death mutation so expensive compared to the other mutations? The others are far less expensive, so it makes no sense for only one of them to have such a high cost.

Putrefy is a great card, and typically I would say it is far greater if you have just those choices. However, you may want to consider Assassin's Trophy if you have the chance to get one over either of those.

Running Putrefy , Assassin's Trophy , and a Damnation is what I do in most golgari decks. My current golgari EDH deck is a nightmare too.

It's really not much of a contest. Death Mutation has a CMC that is too high and is sorcery speed. Putrefy , although more limited than other removal spells, is much better. If you want to go a little better, consider Beast Within over even Putrefy , or along side it if you're looking for more removal.

I run Death Mutation in one deck, and it's a Saproling tribal jank deck, and I run it for the Saproling theme. That's it.

DemonDragonJ on Savage Destruction

I have replaced Death Mutation with Putrefy , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.40 to 4.32, and also because that card is an instant, can destroy a greater variety of permanents, and rarely ever will the mutation product a number of tokens sufficient to justify its high mana cost.

DemonDragonJ on Reap what is Sown

I have also replaced Trostani Discordant with Juniper Order Ranger , because Trostani would actually work against the theme of this deck, whereas the ranger works with it, and I replaced Death Mutation with Putrefy , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.40 to 4.32, and also because that card is an instant, can destroy a greater variety of permanents, and rarely ever will the mutation product a number of tokens sufficient to justify its high mana cost.
