Scavenging Ooze Discussion

Relic hits all graveyards (See Scavenging Ooze and Tarmogoyf ) and has the ability to continuously keep a graveyard empty.

I'm looking at where to possibly mainboard Rathi Trapper . Not only can he cheaply remove a blocker, but also stall until Assassin's Trophy or Livewire Lash comes online, and can also lockdown many of the "win" creatures Tron decks run, like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , as well as providing more answers to other infect decks with Blighted Agent

Yes, Damping Sphere looks good.

Collected Company could be interesting, but at CMC 4 it probably won't see a lot of play. Might be worth testing. I'm not usually short of drawing creatures, so Incubation doesn't get me much, when it could have just been a creature.

It's great you started putting together this resource, SynergyBuild! Thanks.

I was wondering, I have Deathgorge Scavenger but I always wonder if he's worth a slot in EDH. Is he good enough? I am building a mid-level STAX Grand Warlord Radha , maybe there?

Also - I thought hatebears are meant to take down effectiveness of other decks? I'm confused about some cards on this list; I'm wondering why Growth-Chamber Guardian , Jadelight Ranger , or Llanowar Elves made it on here? Wouldn't Scavenging Ooze (while technically not a "bear"), Leonin Arbiter , Ash Zealot be examples of hatebears, but not those guys?

If you replace rampant growth / Steve for stable copy-sources like Birds of Paradise , Llanowar Elves , or Elvish Mystic , you could probably cut to 22 lands * bites fist * off-the-charts total CMC but i'm still gonna say it!

Modern is fast... may need a healthy ammount of answers in the mainboard.. Mana Leak , Remand , Spell Snare , perhaps a white splash for cheap cards like x3 Path to Exile , or red for x3 Lightning Bolt , or black for x4 Inquisition of Kozilek .. could even try x2 Fog depending on who you are as a person... x2 Dismember ... 2 man-lands always helps Treetop Village etc.. That's such a cool combo though! Thing in the ice may work too hahah. Phantasmal Image is really expensive but iunno it does exist... In terms of sideboard you have access to stuff like: X2 Dispel , Negate , Tormod's Crypt , x3 Scavenging Ooze , Nature's Claim , x2 Ratchet Bomb , x2 Spellskite etc..

all the x2, x1 etc.. in this comment are actually popular #'s of the card from "commonly played cards in modern" on mtggoldfish (or my own research on how many to run).

Best of luck that is so cool

2 Birds of Paradise would allow you to run 22 lands. I read a "commonly played cards in modern article" and it was 3 bolts average in the # played column (something to consider for any cuts). That other guy may be right about Scavenging Ooze , it saved me from 1 life twice in the same game last week. Vexing Devil is pricey but seems pretty amazing. 2 Dismember could add to your answer-game, so could a few Fog ...? maybe? I've seen Uktabi Drake as a 2-of in some pro tour decks... In terms of sideboard you have access to Smash to Smithereens , Rending Volley , Nature's Claim , Pyroclasm , Radiant Flames , Ratchet Bomb , Spellskite , Tormod's Crypt , Vines of Vastwood etc..

Mainly it's aggro and i'd say birds. Prolly modern ready hahah gotta playtest right

Sweet, primalcrux! If you ever have to do 1v1 I would drop acolyte for arbor elves, I ran into summoning sickness problems one time (4 is beefy). Dismember x2 comes to mind! I could see broodmaster being dropped for Kalonian Hydra - or even a single Polukranos, World Eater + a single Nylea, God of the Hunt (great mana sink) Scavenging Ooze is a great sink too! If you ever feel like top-decking is a problem this deck has, consider a playset of Rancor

Strangleroot Geist is a great card, so is Experiment One

Wistful Selkie was a 2-of when I pulled off a 6th this one time

22 lands is on-point BTW I awfully did calculating... Best of luck green devotion is sweet!

Yeah Scavenging Ooze is probably one of the best if not the best oozey boy to include. Acidic Slime would give you access to removal which the deck lacks. Parallel Lives is way too slow. The deck is begging for some real one drops and some ramp considering the curve is on the higher end, with tons of 3 drops. Id include some ramp like Llanowar Elves or something similar in the one drop slot over slow enchantments.

Kamerot what do you think would be the better chose adding Selvala, Heart of the Wilds or Doubling Season I feel it would have a very good synergy with my deck with cards like Avenger of Zendikar , Bane of Progress , Managorger Hydra , Myojin of Life's Web , Nacatl War-Pride , Rampaging Baloths , Scavenging Ooze , Vigor , Beacon of Creation , Garruk Wildspeaker and Vivien Reid . tell me if doubling season would work in all of those cases
