Stinkweed Imp Discussion

Icbrgr on Modern shouldnt have a ban ...

PlatinumOne sorry i wasnt too specific in my bullet points earlier. no Simian Spirit Guide isnt currently banned (but it was until recently) and i meant to say that it would be used to help cast Trinisphere .

Abrupt Decay is cannot be countered and blows up Counterbalance / Sensei's Divining Top . Chalice of the Void nukes the 0-2cmc shenanigans.

dies to removal is basically a meme at this point but c'mon its true... Deathrite Shaman only hase 2 toughness doesnt have haste/shroud/hexproof/indestructible...can be named with Pithing Needle ...can be countered can be discarded.

Golgari Grave-Troll is great just like Stinkweed Imp ... just bounce it with Vapor Snag ... insert grayvard removal like Nihil Spellbomb or Rest in Peace or Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus ...why cant i hold all this graveyard removal?

Eye of Ugin isn't stopped by Damping Sphere but the other typical tron lands like Urza's Mine , Urza's Power Plant and Urza's Tower dont like it... Blood Moon and other options like Tectonic Edge or better exist.

Pretty sure Faithless Looting and Stinkweed Imp should be playsets.

Fun! It feels like surveil is more of an all-in strategy for it to be great, except for Underrealm Lich or Doom Whisperer , while dredge is generally fantastic in this strategy. I'd agree that Dimir Informant and Barrier of Bones may not produce enough value as the way you use that 1 creature cast from the graveyard that turn, while dredge provides the value without taking up the creature cast. It's too bad there wasn't an artifact creature with a surveil etb trigger!

Like skoobysnackz says, Stinkweed Imp does seem like a great option as a replacement. More value than Dimir Informant as it also discourages attacks. I don't know if Golgari Thug has enough synergy in here though, I think he's better in something like Gitrog where you have easy card draw and are less likely to play creatures from the graveyard.

Jade Mage could be better than Slimefoot...? She doesn't have the die trigger for the saprolings, but she is 1 cheaper to play (and replay), and 1 cheaper for creating saprolings, so more useable as a sink when you don't have the huge mana turns. Or, if mana isn't a problem in general and you want the mass saproling army, maybe Nemata, Grove Guardian . It seems like you don't have enough sac outlets to really make the Slimefoot trigger valuable and Nemata, while more expensive to cast, gives cheaper saprolings and a way to make that wide army tall. Just some thoughts - if Slimefoot has been performing, then by all means!

I love the interactivity of this deck, Muldrotha seems so fun as a tool box!

I would definitely recommend adding in some dredge-esque cards. Since Izoni Undergrowth triggers off cards in graveyard. Cards that can benefit you are Life from the Loam , Golgari Thug , Stinkweed Imp , Golgari Grave-Troll , Dakmor Salvage .

In conjunction with the dredge cards you can use the cycling lands as well to trigger off your dredge abilities like Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket . While to give off even more synergy, you can use cards like World Shaper to grab back all the lands you dredged away. Cards also like Glowspore Shaman , Satyr Wayfinder , Stitcher's Supplier , Buried Alive , and Entomb are great ways to add more cards to your graveyard.

In terms of your interaction suite, you can add in cards like Nature's Claim or Abrupt Decay . Other than that you are running pretty decent spells. Lastly your land base, if on the budget side you can still definitely add in Command Tower at the bare minimum with the addition of the reprinted shock land Overgrown Tomb and also reprinted Twilight Mire . Llanowar Wastes is pretty cheap for the pain land and will help with your color fixing. High Market is also another recommended land I would add in for protection.

Hope that helps!

There are a few options here. If you want to stay in mono black, you can look into dredge: Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug and Darkblast . In order to get these cards into your graveyard in the first place, you will need to include cards that allow you to discard. If you have the money for it: Collective Brutality is a fantastic way to do it. If budget is more of a concern then something like Dark Deal is ok but not great. You could always use Rotting Rats to make your self discard (its also fine if you mill it, since you can just unearth it).

One thing I just noticed is that you've got over 60 cards in the deck. It would probably be best if you kept to that 60 card minimum. This will increase the consistency of the deck overall. One way you could do this, if you like having a variety of different cards, is play a card like Mausoleum Secrets . This will allow you to just play one copy of niche cards like Distress , Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, and Go for the Throat . You can also cut cards like Mind Rot and Ratcatcher (3 mana for that discard ability is too expensive, and 6 mana is definitely too expensive). If it were me though, I would just cut all the extraneous cards, not even bother with the Mausoleum Secrets and just focus on the rats.

If you wanted to do multi color (it will be more expensive though). I would recommend a few cards. Red-black is the route I would take. You get cards like Faithless Looting and Experimental Frenzy . The looting is good for dumping cards into your graveyard. Frenzy is a combo card that allows you to keep playing cards off the top of your library as long as you have mana (and as long as it isn't a second land). If you want to go the frenzy route, I would recommend Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as a good way to make a bunch of mana and cast a bunch of rats. This is kind of a different way to play the deck and might be too muddy with the self mill plan. So I would either choose the mill or the frenzy plan.

  1. Regardless of your acceleration, that's a really high curve

  2. try some dredge cards like Stinkweed Imp

Heya KingPhosphar13!

Some cards you can consider for more synergy are cards like:

You can also consider adding in more type of dorks to accelerate Meren into play by T3.

You can take a look at my build for some inspiration!
