Scavenging Ooze Discussion

Chasmolinker on JUND Midrange

Just ordered Engineered Explosives for the SB over Blood Moon. Thoughts? I can go back down to 1 Forest and 1 Treetop Village.

I kind of like the idea of leaving creatures in the graveyards so I can eat them up with Scooze. I will try it out with 2 Kozilek's Return and if the exile becomes necessary I will make the split. Plus having one of each and Damnation makes it difficult to decide which one comes in. Streamlining my SB makes that a little easier.

Chasmolinker on JUND Midrange

Thanks to everyone for the great feedback:
ToolmasterOfBrainerd, Bob is a must in Jund. (Or Grim Flayer if you prefer). I prefer Bob though because he gives consistent card advantage and helps feed LotV's +1. Bob is excellent in any match-up he sticks around in. The card advantage outweighs the life loss and is part of the reason I am still not sure of my discard split. Collective Brutality, Kitchen Finks, and Scooze help gain back life lost from Bob. I really want to run 3 Scooze and just might cut Finks to make room.

xTCBxNightmare, Jund generally has 6-7 discard spells in the MB. With BBE now in the mix, those numbers are lower as cascading into discard is just not where you want to be. Thoughtseize increases the chance of being able to grab something when this does happen. And it lets you snag Jace. I'm back down to 3/2 favoring Thoughtseize and a 4th Thoughtseize may turn up in the SB. I think I prefer Collective Brutality over a 4th Thoughtseize for now.

I've dropped Pia and Kiran Nalaar for Thrun, the Last Troll. Good catch.
I don't want to dump that much money into Kolaghan's Command right now. Until I see a deficiency in gameplay, I'm fine with 2 copies.

xTCBxNightmare and scrotality, Kozilek's Return was an oversight. Made the switch from Anger and cut one Fulminator Mage for 2 copies of Kozilek's Return.

DarkStarStorm, I prefer Bob over Flayer. BBE and Bolt are good enough at handling Jace for me.

I think the most efficient way to ramp in modern, especially in mono-green is by using a combination of Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl. Playsets of each are recommended. Overgrowth as a one or two of can supplement that plan as well. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can help with getting more mana, provided you have enough creatures in your deck with two or more devotion to green in their cmc. Genesis Wave and Primal Command feel like auto-includes in a deck like this. Scavenging Ooze, Obstinate Baloth, Thrun, the Last Troll, and Chameleon Colossus are great sideboard cards.

kamelyan, yes I actually have used Path of Discovery and I liked it but it doesn't always do as much work as I hoped it would. I would probably add a Sensei's Divining Top if I had the budget right now lol I'll buy it soon though so good thinking!

OOBS, I also have a Scavenging Ooze but it never seemed to be amazing in my playgroup. I am the only with a real graveyard shenanigans deck (Meren of course), so he never really shined as much as he could. As for Hangarback, I considered it and I think it would be great here, but I never ended up buying one for some reason. I'll have to try it out.

This list is far from finished but I've been working on it heavily the past month or two. I also want to add Triumph of the Hordes just so my playgroup can hate me even more. Idk but seems like a decent out of nowhere win condition if you can stomach the inhumane methods.

OOBS on Atraxa's Death Parade

I think that Scavenging Ooze would do really well here. Hangarback Walker would also be an interesting addition.

StonedJesus on Daily Dose of Esperin

Okay, harder to deal with (generally) but fun to fight against nonetheless. Mostly every deck I play as in non-EDH formats is super-aggro, so Push is the best removal for me; I kill their Scavenging Ooze, Dark Confidant, and/or Tarmagoyf early and swing with my super-fast creatures for game around turn 5-7. But yeah, Logic Knot is a pretty cool choice, but I like Mana Leak better, again, for early-game reasons.

Firebones675 on Outlast Token Counter Doubler

3 days ago

If you're looking to get lower to the ground and have a faster start, things like Hardened Scales/Winding Constrictor work nice with cheap counter related creatures like Servant of the Scale, Walking Ballista, Hangarback Walker etc. The vast majority of the cards in your deck that put on counters only put on one per creature meaning scales does the same thing as just doubling the counters. Scavenging Ooze also pulls weight with an extra counter. Also i doubt most people would care if you're playing casually but primal vigor is not modern legal.

you should defenitely lower your mana curve4 drops with 20 lands is generaly not a good Idea

For your sideboard. Rest in Piece and Stony Silence are very strong sideboard options you should have 2-3 of them I Think.Maybe 2 Nature's Claim if you need to destroy artifacts or enchantments (you already have pridemages in the maindeck so they kight be to much)Kataki, War's Wage is also good against artifact decks (lantern and affinity for example)

Blessed Alliance is good against burn and bogles for example

Burrenton Forge-Tender and Kor Firewalker are also brutal against burn. (of course you should devote to much of your sideboard for one specific matchup)

Ethersworn Canonist, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Rule of Law and Silence are good against combo decks especially storm

Leyline of Sanctity is strong against a variety of decks

there are also a lot of green lifegainspells but lifegain is only relevant against brun most of the time so you should have to much

Scavenging Ooze is pretty flexible it gets big is graveyard hate and lifegain in one card.

in general i wouldnt play to many creatures in xour sideboard because your opponents are likely to play additional removal or board whipes against you and you dont want to expose your sideboard cards to the things your deck is weak to
