Nice deck! Different from mine--I know you said you don't want suggestions but some cheap and incredibly effective cards are Skirge Familiar and Wild Mongrel to get somy easy discard going. I would recomend Squandered Resources but that's a tad pricey.

Ah,it searches Skirge Familiar too! The only downside I see is that it will be a 5 cmc,so 5 dmg...but Grim Tutor is a 3 cmc+2 life loss if used,but it can be countered.Also,in desperate situations it can be used as a removal.Thoughts?

If you're going competitive you should have All the best possible mana rocks and lands like I mentioned above. After that look into shifting the total CMC down. Anything more expensive than 3 CMC needs to have a very powerful effect.

Looking at your list I would remove every single 4+ drop if you're going this route.

As far as combos you're kind of limited in BW, the prices of these pieces are all over the place, some cheap, some prohibitively expensive:

OK, that was a lot! Hope this put you in the right direction.

Some notable land cards you could add are Exploration and Oracle of Mul Daya. World Shaper is amazing for recursion since you can sacrifice it easily. Skullclamp is great for card draw if you are sacrificing. Mana Echoes gives ridiculous ramp for a token strategy.

Life and Limb gives infinite tokens and infinite landfall with Sporemound, and you can sacrifice Sporemound to end the loop. Living Plane and Nature's Revolt are also good for animating your lands. These can give infinite mana with Aggravated Assault. Massacre Wurm kills opponents' lands if animated, and burns them when their creatures die.

Pitiless Plunderer gives additional mana when sacrificing creatures. Zulaport Cutthroat is helpful to drain opponents from sacrificing.

Skirge Familiar is a good way to ramp up mana for your Exsanguinate, especially if you are discarding Dakmor Salvage and you have Gitrog.

Amulet of Vigor is helpful if you have lots of tapped lands and effects that put lands in play tapped.

Liliana of the Veil is usually considered the budgetless version of Necrogen mists, but it’s also a pretty big target. I’m not sure how competitive Geth's Grimoire is but drawing off everyone’s discard is always nice.

If mill is a big strategy, then I’d highly suggest Helm of Obedience and Leyline of the Void.

I’m also noticing Mike and Trike as a wincon. If you wanted a more on theme win (permanent destruction) maybe try The Gitrog Monster, with Dakmor Salvage and Skirge Familiar. And maybe incorporate some extra lands for turn spells like Exploration?

Tendershoot’s here for token-fodder, I’m guessing? You could also use Sadistic Hypnotist for more discards.

Tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal and maybe Cruel Tutor or Grim Tutor will help find anything you need.

I’d also replace Zhur-ta Druid with Birds of Paradise

wraya2 on How to fix "illegal" card ...

I've got a PDH deck that has Skirge Familiar labeled as illegal but it was printed at Common in Vintage Masters so it keeps flagging my deck as prototype as a result. Suggestions for fixes?

Just so I don’t clutter the Tier forum :)

On the contrary, Gitrog can be built quite competently on a budget! It’s main combo pieces are Skirge Familiar and Dakmor Salvage with any wincon. You can even keep it cheap and use Faith of the Devoted as an easy out. The rest of the deck is just ramp and redundancy. You could take my list and cut out the most expensive pieces (which I believe are the Dual land, Imperial Seal, Mox Diamond and Mana Crypt) and still perform adequately.

For Sidisi, it’s an excellent self-mill engine on a body. Ideally you’ll want Food Chain and its enablers: Misthollow Griffin and Eternal Scourge. Laboratory Maniac would be a strong way to win.
