SpammyV on Volrath the Shapestealer

3 weeks ago

If I understand the ruling correctly, if you turn Volrath into a Putrid Leech , activate the ability, and then use Volrath's ability to turn into Putrid Leech again, you can reuse the pump as it's a "different" Putrid Leech. I'm planning on building him this weekend and slotting that in. You could have him become 7 different Putrid Leeches, an Invisible Stalker to get past blockers, then something with lifelink before damage and just delete someone from the game. And all for only 9 mana and 14 life!

lagotripha on Jund ooze deck - help would be appreciated please

5 months ago

You might get some mileage out some of the old-school ooze token cards- Gutter Grime makes grindy matchups hell for your opponent, Gelatinous Genesis is decent at flooding the board, and Ooze Flux / Biogenic Ooze has real potential.

Experiment One is a spectacular card, and I have some very fond memories of an old deck built around Putrid Leech / Immolating Souleater Death's Shadow / Ooze Garden .

Have you considered Putrid Leech also if you are using the online banlist, Hymn to Tourach is not legal, but of you use paper it's fine.

Would replace all Putrid Leeches with Winding Constrictors

Chasmolinker on So, You Wanna Play Jund Yea? (Budget)

Hey lagotripha, thanks for the comment. Glint-Sleeve Siphoner isn't a perfect Bob replacement but it's a body (with menace) that often draws a removal spell or at least one activation. It plays well with Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip as entering combat or eating removal with it lets her flip.

I like all of those creature suggestions except that they don't pump Bloodhall Ooze as effectively. Grim Flayer is the best costed creature that I know of along side Putrid Leech. Although, I could see cutting Putrid Leech for Managorger Hydra. Hydra is such a strong card if left unchecked.

Oh, one thing Putrid Leech and pain lands remind me of- Gonti's Machinations. Gotta love a cheaper Lightning Helix, especially with the Greenbelt Rampager synergy.

Pieguy396 on Abzan Traverse Creatures problem

Grim Flayer is by far your best option. Nothing else comes close, and even then it'll still be far worse than Goyf. If you badly need a super-budget option, Putrid Leech exists, but it's still not great.
