Scourge of Nel Toth

Creature — Zombie Dragon


You may cast Scourge of Nel Toth from your graveyard by paying and sacrificing two creatures rather than paying its mana cost.

Scourge of Nel Toth Discussion

You want cards with discard triggers / abilities and cards that work from the graveyard.

Things like that. Consider your graveyard as an extension of your hand. Play it like Dredge.

Golgari Findbroker Pulls out any permanent from grave, great for Meren.

Meren of Marit Lage That's my Meren deck, though I have a huge side strategy that makes it not as focused as yours, feel free to look through it!

Shriekmaw and Scourge of Nel Toth stuck out to me, Shriekmaw is perfect removal for a Meren deck, pay 1&BLK, kill a creature, and get a EXP counter for Meren. Scourge is admittedly more for flavor then anything else, but why wouldn't you want a flying 6/6 for 2BLK and 2 more EXP counters on Meren?

Dragons should pick from:

Utvara Hellkite , Scourge of Kher Ridges (could be a good wipe for the board, 2x mana for ur, 4 mana to do 4 damage to each creature), Nicol Bolas (wipe someone's hand turn 6? yes, please), Hellkite Overlord (Big damage), Tyrant's Familiar (single creature killer), Scourge of Nel Toth (direct return ability), Ojutai, Soul of Winter (this is a maybe, gives vigilance), Eternal Dragon direct return ability, Dragon Mage Drops your hand into graveyard plus drawing 7 cards..risky af given it help others, Chromium, the Mutable you can actually pay 2 on ur to make him hexproof with this card..could save Ur in time of need, Bladewing the Risen this guy is weird idk if i would put it in because enter the battlefield abilities don't help Ur, Balefire Dragon fuck yes, Atarka, World Render Huge damage. low toughness, Vorosh, the Hunter 6 counters for Ur, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire a little risky but seems to be worth it, Teneb, the Harvester yes yes yes, Silumgar, the Drifting Death give ur hexproof, Rith, the Awakener many tokens, Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner hexproof trample vigilance, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami potential permanent killer, Numot, the Devastator destroy lands (probably should be left out), Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius draw a card, Intet, the Dreamer I think he is really good, Hellkite Tyrant could steal you a bunch of artifacts, Dragonlord Silumgar steal a creature a turn if using ur. steal a creature if putting out permanently. good for removing a particular blocker, Crosis, the Purger good against mono decks.

RyuSama1990 I understand how the cards work, but I'm failing to see how they’re more valuable here than other dragons that fit his theme better like Boneyard Scourge , Malfegor , and Scourge of Nel Toth ; non dragons that fit his theme better, like Dragonmaster Outcast , Corpse Connoisseur , Balthor the Defiled , Flayer of the Hatebound , Dragonspeaker Shaman , and Anger ; or dragons that are just better in general, like Skyline Despot and Thunderbreak Regent .

Lastly - which I probably should have said firstly as this should be the first thing considered when building a new deck - is your win condition. The sky is the limit with Golgari colors.

You can go total life drain with cards like Exsanguinate + big mana producers like Ashnod's Altar or the Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth combo. You can also focus on creatures doing the draining for you with creatures such as Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Massacre Wurm, or Poison-Tip Archer to deal damage to your opponents for each creature that dies.

You also have the option of combat damage by attacking with, sacrificing, and bringing back key threats to the battlefield. Cards like Wurmcoil Engine, Grave Titan, Mycoloth, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Avenger of Zendikar, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Terastodon, Scourge of Nel Toth, or Sheoldred, Whispering One.

Prized Amalgam and Scourge of Nel Toth make for good reoccurring beaters/sac options. Liliana, Death's Majesty is also a solid planeswalker option for more recursion and wipe.
