Putrid Imp Discussion

One quick thing... This deck is not EDH legal. All cards in your deck must follow your commander's colour identity. Sheoldred, Whispering One is mono-Black. As such, you cannot have Green in your deck.

Beyond that, you need ways to get cards into the graveyard, so Sheoldred can bring them out.

Buried Alive and Entomb for example. Bog Witch and Putrid Imp help get cards from your hand to your graveyard. You should also search for draw+discard effects.

Reanimate, Animate Dead, and many other cards allow you to resurrect your creatures when Sheoldred is not on the battlefield.

Thank for the feedback Vaan

They are some excellent creatures! I especially like the prospect of being able to Ever After Kederekt Leviathan followed by Sepulchral Primordial. Big swing!

Sanitarium Skeleton was always a bit of a dubious selection in my eyes (3 mana for a 1/2 never really looks like a good option), so Putrid Imp is an easy swap there.

I totally agree about not having enough reanimation spells, but I am unsure what to take out to make room for them? Pieces of the Puzzle fills a nice niche for me as it allows me to mill myself without fear of losing useful spells, so that only leaves Dark Ritual and Memory Sluice which are both great. Animate Dead would be my choice here.

Buried Alive and Reanimate are amazing... bit too pricey for me right now though.

So you have 8 big reanimation targets in Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial which is a good number for optimized lists. As far as upgrades for your bombs go Inkwell Leviathan is a solid threat and Kederekt Leviathan helps reset the board after you bring it back.

A problem you might face is having your big creatures stuck on your hand, Careful Study and Putrid Imp help lot with that.

Having only Ever After as your reanimation spell is also not good, Life/Death, Exhume, Stitch Together and Animate Dead are good options.

Buried Alive is great at getting your reanimation targets to the yard and Reanimate is the namesake of reanimator decks, both would be great additions, but the price tags...

Do you even need Jarad? You can run something like a Lotus Petal to generate infinite mana while going off by drawing it and casting it infinite time as you infinitely dredge your deck. Then you can win with an Exsanguinate or Tendrils of Agony or something like that. That way you don't need your discard outlet to "grow" when cards are discarded, which means you open the door to more discard outlets like Oona's Prowler and Putrid Imp for added consistency.

I've been wracking my brains, but the rats you've got seem perfectly suited to the job they have. Putrid Imp is my only suggestion to replace him, as he provides a better discard outlet and has partial evasion. Also is cheaper.. Have you looked at Megrim? Could speed up their life loss while you're making them discard.

A janky possibility I thought of was Deepcavern Imp for a discard effect on my upkeep, pitching a creature I could reanimate later? It's a free card, so I mean it can't hurt my wallet to test. But I've noticed there being some plays where I don't have as many reanimate targets, which is still fine since I can control the board until I do. Putrid Imp is also a possibility.

Putrid Imp can combo with Dakmor Salvage which is just a great card with gitrog anyway

maybe swap Gruul Signet for Golgari Signet lol

Vinelasher Kudzu could be cut? just a big beater with no evasion

City of Solitude is another dosan

if you add putrid imp, maybe add a eldrazi titan so you can't mill out, maybe swap with the feldon's cane

Skirge Familiar is great! back up bloom and draws you card with the frog
