Splinterfright

Creature — Elemental

Trample

Splinterfright's power and toughness are each equal to the number of creature cards in your graveyard.

At the beginning of your upkeep, put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard.

I might look into some higher quality self-mill to replace the tacky stuff like Wailing Ghoul . Some of my favorites are Nyx Weaver , Animal Magnetism , and Rot Farm Skeleton . Splinterfright also self mills effectively, but he can actually be sacced to Jarad for value on top of that mill.

Instead of Naturalize , you could play Qasali Pridemage , fuels you graveyard, and generally more useful while in play. It's a lot more expensive though, but maindeck artifact/enchantment hate, should usually do something other than just killing those permanents.

Boneyard Wurm , and Splinterfright seem like a good additions, alongside Ghoultree .

I think you need something to get creatures in the yard with, though.

I think black will be better than white here. So many cards to sac, self mill and benefit from your graveyard. Without it Grapple with the Past , Mulch and Satyr Wayfinder are probably your best options for that.

Consider Cards like Nyx Weaver and Splinterfright . Both will auto-mill you, making Splinterfright more and more powerful. Nyx Weaver will allow for some recursion.

You'll want to avoid spells that self mill and go for creatures that do it instead. Several cards do this: Satyr Wayfinder , Splinterfright , and Hedron Crab . Another good card is Tracker's Instincts because it will replace itself. You've also got Gnaw to the Bone for a lot of life. If you have a lot of money, Mesmeric Orb does a lot of work.

Flesh_Addict_ on Sidisi the Land reanimator

Hey semsandberg,

Land recursion Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is indeed a strange way to play her.

You're gonna want a lot of creatures to hit the grave for her ability and you want a lot of hate lands in the deck, have you thought of reconsidering Muldrotha, the Gravetide as your commander, as it allows for a free land per turn as well as other benefits.

Spore Frog is great against aggro, if that's what you're struggling against, the little frog is your best hope, I would take it over Songs of the Damned anyday.

Additionally Constant Mists is perfect for fighting aggro with land recursion!

Lurking Predators is a heavy cmc card for a benefit that might not work, I would consider Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar for an extra creature that can bring itself back.

Strip Mine is needed! I would actually take out Perpetual Timepiece as it's a danger to you if you don't have 2 mana up and someone exiles your grave, additionally, if you want to keep it up, you have to play with 2 mana up at all times.

Path of Discovery is a great card, but Courser of Kruphix is a better one, and so it Oracle of Mul Daya .

I would also run more basic lands, because having 5 in total, with Yavimaya Elder that gets you 2, Sakura-Tribe Elder and other land fetches makes it them very obselete.

If you wanna run that many basics, consider adding Ulvenwald Hydra that fetches you any land into play and possibly Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger for double the mana and super hard control.

Splinterfright is cool, but Sylvan Library is cooler.

Other cards to consider are the following: Exploration or Wayward Swordtooth for more land drops.

Avenger of Zendikar is great to abuse for sac outlets and get those land drop triggers!

Last but not least: Sylvan Safekeeper a must in all land recursion decks!

Hope this helps, Flesh

Boneyard Wurm is a slightly worse Splinterfright , but it’s also a 2-drop. Just a thought

I'm not a competitive Modern player (yet), but I'll toss in my initial thoughts.

First: Golgari Grave-Troll isn't Modern legal, unfortunately.

Second: I would run Splinterfright over Millstone . If you want to keep open the option of milling your opponent, go up to 4 Sands of Delirium , but it's virtually always better to pick one goal and stick to that.

Third: Overgrown Tomb and maybe Blooming Marsh in place of some basics. They're not really cheap, but they're a very good investment into Modern.

Fourth: Corpsejack Menace and Varolz, the Scar-Striped have no interaction with the rest of the deck. While it is a fun and effective synergy, it doesn't provide much help here. +1/+1 counters is its own archetype.

Good luck, and dredge deep!
