Putrid Imp Discussion

Zealous Persecution is good and surprising in decks like this, maybe in place of 2x Essence Extraction as you should be ahead in board anyways and be the aggressor. Also Funeral Charm/Putrid Imp is faster than Cryptbreaker for Haakon and the Charm is a good toolbox otherwise too. Tendrils of Despair could also be considered for its disruptive element, as you can bring them back through Haakon. There are plenty of nice cards for this build but these are what came to mind :)

I'm not very familiar with The Gitrog Frog's strategy, however I know netting the most card and board advantage is crucial part of winning. Looking at the best primer I can find for the general, there are many improvements you can make with this deck. Putrid Imp goes best with Dakmor Salvage while Gitrog is on the field for an infinite mill and library reshuffling. If you have Dark Ritual, you can float infinite black mana and channel that into a win condition.

Moving on, I believe your curve could be fixed and your CMC avg. could be lower. There are cards I'd add in place of the ones you currently have. For instance: Dark Confidant, Sylvan Library, a lot of mana dorks like Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Arbor Elf, and Elves of Deep Shadow. Ramping into Gitrog is good. Sylvan Scrying gets you Salvage. Play more tutors to increase the consistency of your deck. There's a lot more I could recommend than what I can type, so I'll leave a link to the Gitrog primer.

How has Torment of Hailfire worked for you? Is it better or worse than Exsanguinate in your opinon? And do you need both?

Would a discard outlet be useful, Putrid Imp maybe? Discarding vorinclex (for example) early game and reanimating it seems useful

Fierce Empath is great with Woodland Bellower. It finds the bellower and protean hulk.

How has Engineered Explosives worked for you?

I assume you know you have an infinte mana combo in your deck as well. cabal coffers, 5 swamps, deserted temple and rings of brighthearth and basalt monolith and rings. The reason i ask is because it doesn't seem like you need the combo very much. Inifinte colorless is only really good in exsanguinate or torment of hailfire. If you're looking for cuts rings might be a place to look at.

PG7m on So how is Pauper doing?

There are some really crazy lists out there. For example I played against the Eldrazi Reanimator that can put an Ulamog's Crusher on the board as early as turn 2 with Dragon Breath using Putrid Imp and Exhume. It's not unbeatable but it'll put you on a clock for sure.

Putrid Imp and Basking Rootwalla are both not modern legal. They have only been printed in Torment and non-Modern-legal supplemental sets. As a replacement 1-drop, I could see Llanowar Mentor or Greenseeker.

Also, if you're interesting in running a B/G delve deck, Tasigur, the Golden Fang already has established himself as a powerful contender in modern.

You can run stuff like Putrid Imp or Lotleth Troll which combined with Dakmor Salvage create infinite land to graveyard effects (making the troll infinitely big).

Behold the Beyond allows you to tutor for a combo (and you're running reanimator cards so putting stuff in the yard isn't that bad).

Combining Reprocess with Splendid Reclamation can make for a huge amount of landfall triggers (and draw if your commander is out too).

Boundless Realms is a card I'd consider as well.

I'm still looking around for cards and ideas for my own non-competitive Gitrog deck.

I exchanged Stinkweed Imp for Putrid Imp.

There is another card with a similar ability; Putrid Imp. I am now considering both Olivia's Dragoon and the imp.
