Scavenger Folk Discussion

Well first of all, dropping my link at the bottom. But some all-stars include:

Dreamscape Artist is exceptional ramp.

Druid Lyrist, Elvish Lyrist, Elvish Scrapper, and Scavenger Folk remove artifacts & enchantments.

Glen Elendra Archmage is... hopefully going down in price thanks to the reprint??

Glowspore Shaman and Satyr Wayfinder.

Mulldrifter, Night Incarnate, and Shriekmaw are great and Evoke is great for this deck.

Plaguecrafter is a strictly better Marauder or Executioner.

Spore Frog is the best. The actual best.

Sylvan Safekeeper sacs lands (though she may be too $$), and Turntimber Sower benefits from it.

AEther Barrier seriously slows down aggressive decks.

Animate Dead can hit Muldrotha from the grave.

Excavation is nice.

Font of Fortunes, also nice.

Infernal Darkness is cruel. Sac it to the upkeep cost, cast it post-combat, and there is no enchantment removal in black. They could Seal of Primordium it once, but you just cast it again.

Sinister Concoction is okay budget removal, as is Soul Ransom.

Standstill draws cards.

Unbridled Growth is basically : draw a card.

Chromatic Lantern is FOUR DOLLARS RIGHT NOW

Courier's Capsule and Mishra's Bauble, good draws.

Expedition Map is good ramp.

Perpetual Timepiece is self-mill and woo!

Like the recursion theme here!

Couple of notes:Burnt Offering is actually out of your colors here per Oracle text. Maybe Culling the Weak instead?Scavenger Folk seems like it could be a bit slow due to summoning sickness, what are your thoughts on Caustic Caterpillar?

Meren of Clan Nel Toth seems like he'd be a perfect fit here. Do you have enough protection for Mazirek or with the recursion effects are you letting him hit the graveyard instead?

Totally fine, thanks for the credit JonAvon.The deck has definitely been updated since the post, theres some amazing Pendelhaven/Elves/Scryb Sprites abuse that helps the deck survive zoo a little better. Replace Crumble with Scavenger Folk for more 1/1's, add another Tracker and a Giant Growth, oh and Gaea's Liege is cute, but for a more competitive feel, replace it with Ernie.

Fligyn: I know right! I was shocked that I managed to make something so cheap!

Omut: Thats a lot of suggestions! Caustic Caterpillar will be replacing Scavenger Folk, and Spawning Pit has found a happy home here! Thanks for the suggestions!

Raging_Squiggle: That card is all around value here. I will have to find a slot to put it in! Thanks!

Gamerjfire: Varolz was in my original decklist, but I dropped him for some reason. Looking back, that was a mistake. Free sac outlets are the best sac outlets!

DarthSmitty: Svogthos seems a bit counterproductive, as you have to pay 5 mana AND you risk losing a land, which isn't always fun. Splinterfright runs the risk of removing some power cards I might need, but Boneyard Wurm is a definite yes. I will have to find some room for him!

I'm also going to try to add the following cards: Extractor Demon (Infinite Combo Piece), Death's Presence, Foster, and Gutter Grime. Thanks for all the help so far guys! :D
