How about going straight GB?

Isn't this backwards of how these leagues normally work? I thought the winner is the only one that doesn't get the budget bump, so the most powerful deck doesn't snowball.

Anyway, Mindwrack Harpy is the most pushed intro deck card I've ever seen. That's my first add.

I also like putting in more creatures with ETB effects. It's kind of awkward that you'll want to tap mana dorks for Hogaak. Glowspore Shaman, Golgari Thug, Crow of Dark Tidings, Gamekeeper, and Mire Triton can all help get Hogaak out by turn 3 if you have a good turn 1 play.

There are a lot of good gold cards in BG graeyard stuff, too: If you have anyone that's relying on indestructibility, Drown in Filth is a good budget option to feed your graveyard. If you're built around Hogaak, I'd think it should regularly be a hard removal spell with upside. Nyx Weaver is just a great card in any graveyard deck, and cheap, too. Jarad's Orders is a good double-tutor. Underrealm Lich is worth the $2, in my opinion. I would also ask yourself whether Eternal Witness is $3.50 better than Acolyte of Affliction/Golgari Findbroker/Treasured Find. Storrev, Devkarin Lich didn't get much fanfare, but the power and price tag are there.

Animist's Awakening is good value at just over $1. World Shaper and Splendid Reclamation are a little more expensive, but higher impact than other $4-5 cards I see in the list. Lower on the ramp ladder, note that Harrow and Springbloom Druid put a land in the yard. Funeral Rites isn't a bad draw spell for this deck. Same for Winding Way, Gather the Pack and Relentless Pursuit. Syphon Mind doesn't have much to do with the theme, but I start with it in most of my black value decks. Dark Deal could be very good, especially if your draw power is maximized and you can use your yard as a second hand. Greenwarden of Murasa is just a powerful card. Same for Phyrexian Delver.

Some other general budget cards for considering: Ransack the Lab, Corpse Churn, Dead Reckoning, Grapple with the Past, Hatchery Spider, Millikin, Mindwrack Demon, Once and Future, Splinterfright, The Mending of Dominaria, Skullwinder, Blood for Bones, and Vigor Mortis.

Hi, I recommend you that take out Binding Mummy and Dreg Mangler, it's better to use the Dread Wanderer because recursion and Lord of the Accursed because pump you zombies and give them evasion. Another thing it's take out Corpse Knight and try Relentless Dead because can return itself and sometimes another threat.

For you mana base try the Kaladesh fastlands Blooming Marsh x4 + Concealed Courtyard x1 because your principal color is black, green and white are more like splash, and also your curve is low. Another land you must use it's Castle Locthwain x2, give you the black you need and if needed card draw. If you can use Mutavault x2 its another that also benefits of your Zombie Lords.

In your sideboard you can take out Disposal Mummy for Scavenging Ooze because potentially can remove more cards and also grow. Another big threat you can add it's Kaya, Orzhov Usurper and replace Storrev, Devkarin Lich, the reason are that it's more difficult to kill a planeswalker than a creature in the format, can giveyou sustain exiling cards, kill a threat from aggro decks with low curve like mono red, and eventually with Kaya's ultimate win matches.

Wolfpig on Golgari Pioneer (help needed)

Ramunap Excavator is always there if Crucible isn't available.

I assume you needed this mechanic for Liliana sinking your lands? I think Grisly Salvage works just fine too.

Graveyard utility for Golgari would be Treasured Find / Jarad's Orders / Nature's Spiral .

I think rounding this deck out in some ways could provide some utility. Although this runs extremely consistant. I suppose the main issues of loosing your best creatures could be altered with a Storrev, Devkarin Lich or get back a Liliana.

Nice deck and don't count out Abrupt Decay just because trophy exists. Id run one or two with fatal push to sink through control decks.

24 lands with dorks might need to be explored also.

Blackgate on Golgari proliferate

Storrev, Devkarin Lich could be a fun option for the deck. Let’s you play your other creatures a bit more aggressively knowing you can bring them back, such as Pollenbright Druid and Evolution Sage -both of which have a tendency to just “sit” on the BF doing nothing if they aren’t chump blocking.
Storrev, Devkarin Lich also gives you a way to recycle your other creatures for some +1/+1 counter and proliferate shenanigans with Pollenbright Druid .

Since you’re really trying to get counters on things to proliferate them, I would go up one Stony Strength .

Yasova Dragonclaw

Marchesa, the Black Rose

Glissa, the Traitor

Storrev, Devkarin Lich

Zur the Enchanter , or an Elsha of the Infinite enchantress build (they never see the auras coming at instant speed... or the removal!)

Admiral Beckett Brass

Gishath, Sun's Avatar (or Zacama, Primal Calamity , for more interaction)

Grand Warlord Radha

A Ruric Thar, the Unbowed build that punishes casting noncreature spells and has a mix of beefy creatures and creatures with killer activated abilities & etb triggers to replicate noncreature spells.

That’s what I got.

LadyZ Thanks for the tip. I considered adding some recursion in, namely Storrev, Devkarin Lich . But Beacon of Unrest seems just flat out better.
