Scavenging Ooze Discussion

Boza on Sultai RecSurPod - Feb. 6th, 2020

I was looking for a deck that had Pod in it, looked at the points spread I would want and found this gem with the exact points spread that I wanted.

I have made some changes, visible in RecSurPod, chiefly removing the one-mana discards, adding an important new addition in Fiend Artisan which is yet another pod effect and another very good creature in Soulherder.

I am throughly confused by the inclusion of Chainweb Aracnir. What role does it serve? a more useful creature like Scavenging Ooze or additional searcher like Recruiter of the Guard would be more useful. Current changes I have made:

This represents the Grove, as well as well as the twisting of Magic. I think that as time goes on, especially when Zendikar Rising gets here the white might slowly be replaced with Black. I am a Necromancer at heart after all. This was just something I threw together quickly and was surprised at how powerful it was using mostly commons and uncommons with the artifact being the only rare(ignore the power spells behind the curtain). It's a fun deck with cheap cards in the main deck. Rares (main deck) Mazemind Tome with (side board) Scavenging Ooze and Shatter the Sky. Thanks for the up vote.

Thanks for the bug fixes on Wildwood Scourge and Scavenging Ooze.

I real appreciate the editing team for being so vigilant, efficient, and quick to be effective.

You all rock.

I'm having two issues

1: Wildwood Scourge not registering neither as a creature, not even as a spell here: Flying Fist.

2: Scavenging Ooze isn't letting me link it to Core 2021 just older sets.

I suggested Garruk's Uprising for two reasons, one it let's you draw a card and two it will help make Setessan Champion be more of a threat plus it would have and could also help Scavenging Ooze. If you want to add card draw I'd use Mazemind Tome so you can draw multiple times without discarding and gaining life never hurts. Also Opt is a great option because you get to draw then scry so you can think about what you want to play next.

Lastly I just want to quickly touch on why I suggested Radha, Heart of Keld for this deck, getting to just play lands and scry for free in a deck like this is just amazing. Also she can make Evolving Wilds faster than Fabled Passage.

Thanks for the input! Scavenging Ooze is going to be in the sideboard for sure. Thirst for Meaning is just really helpful to get to the Shrines I need. As far as Garruk's Uprising I don't think it is the best fit here since there won't be any creatures hitting to trigger.

I'm liking where this is going I would trade out 2xSolemn Simulacrum, 4xThirst for Meaning for 2xScavenging Ooze, 2xGarruk's Uprising, and 2xRadha, Heart of Keld but that's just my idea.

Have you considered the new Radha from M21, Radha, Heart of Keld in place of Courser of Kruphix? Both allow lands to be played from the library. The former doesn't force the top card to be revealed (in case it's not a land), but the latter provides lifegain (which does appear to be a subtheme in the deck alongside Radiant Fountain, Scavenging Ooze, Retreat to Kazandu, and Primeval Bounty). The new Radha also synergizes self-pumps and gains trample with Mina and Denn, Wildborn
