Sudden Reclamation Discussion

Narcomoeba is easy to activate in this deck, but once it's on the board, does it really have the kind of impact you want? A 1/1 flier is not going to worry many people. It's really hard though, because there are a lot of cards that have synergy with the deck... I would slot in Villainous Wealth for Narcomoeba. Extract from Darkness is the hard one because the question is whether you want to replace another GY interaction card with it or do you want to cut something else to make your deck focus even more on the GY? I would say probably cut Sudden Reclamation to make room. Extract from Darkness puts a creature on the battlefield. It doesn't even have to be YOUR creature. It can target any GY. A really awesome play is to play Extract from Darkness and bring back an Eternal Witness. Even better if that Eternal Witness was your opponent's. Then use the E-Witness trigger to bring back Extract from Darkness.

A few cards for your consideration Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, Reclamation Sage, Torrential Gearhulk, Noxious Gearhulk, Snapcaster Mage, Scavenging Ooze, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Crawling Sensation, and Sudden Reclamation.

I would cut the Jarad's Orders and Sudden Reclamation and the planeswalker. I think those are the cards with the least impact when played. You still have 9 spells (Salvage, Commune, Loam) that fill your Graveyard and you have creatures that can do the same (Splinterfright, also consider Satyr Wayfinder), and natural attrition (i.e. when your creatures die), so don't worry about there being not enough creatures in your graveyard.
I would use these 8 free slots for maybe 4 removals and 4 more creatures. It might be that 21 creatures is still a bit low for this deck - the tension being you need a critical mass of creatures both in your graveyard and on the battlefield. But it is a start.

That Sudden Reclamation will work very well until I can get my hands on a few more Life from the Loam. In some cases I may like it more than Life from the Loam depending on what creature I could bring back from the Graveyard. I just got a shipment of my cards for this deck, so I'm super excited to finish building this deck and start testing it. Thanks for the help!

Sure thing, describing my deck at casual modern fnm games as "fair" dredge, then watch the other players expression change over the course of the game, and for the other 2-3 copies of loam, an okay budget stand in is Sudden Reclamation

Hey, CaptSillva and dbpunk, thanks a lot for the advice. I really like the Crucible of Worlds, Sudden Reclamation and Splinterfright ideas, I'm going to do my best to work those in... Any thoughts on cuts to make from the list?

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!
The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~
If you can find it I definitely recommend buying a Swarmyard cause what's better than a land that prevents your dudes from dying?
Arachnogenesis Essentially a Fog with an added bonus of giving you a TON of spider tokens. Spider Spawning is also going to be a winner in this deck. Penumbra Spider gives you good value by making another token when it dies. Riptide Replicator is a fun artifact that can make spiders as well... and with all the tokens, a Parallel Lives and Second Harvest would definitely be cards to consider. Also a fan of the underused Parallel Evolution - it even has Flashback! Swarm them with tokens and then drop a Pathbreaker Ibex, Decimator of the Provinces or the ever coveted Craterhoof Behemoth... or you can go the route of Overwhelming Stampede.
Silklash Spider would be a good powerhouse to pick up. It's effect can kill off any flier on the board.
There aren't any other specific "spiders" that are noteworthy, but there are always shapeshifters. My favorite "spiders" are Metallic Mimic and Chameleon Colossus Alternatively you can get a Conspiracy and just make your whole deck into spiders. Then when they all die bring them back with Patriarch's Bidding.
Spiders have especially large butts on them, so Assault Formation can really be powerful. Things that benefit from the high toughness of spiders should also be up for consideration. Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, Abzan Beastmaster, Grim Contest, and Kin-Tree Invocation are ones that come to mind immediately.
For a more tribal feel I def recommend trying out Archetype of Endurance and Archetype of Finality as well as Brawn and Filth. Bow of Nylea could be used as an alternative to Archetype of Finality if you so choose. There are also tribal artifacts such as Coat of Arms, Urza's Incubator, Obelisk of Urd and Door of Destinies.
Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?
- Deadbridge Chant is a personal favorite. Satyr Wayfinder, Crop Sigil, Grisly Salvage, Mulch, Grapple with the Past, Commune with the Gods, Benefaction of Rhonas, Sudden Reclamation. Stinkweed Imp or anything with Dredge. Golgari Grave-Troll is a popular one.
Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.
- Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Lord of Extinction, Deathcap Cultivator, Deathrite Shaman, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Splendid Reclamation, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth. Did you mill a bunch of great cards you want back? Recursion is also a super powerful strategy. Eternal Witness is a Green staple for a reason. Greenwarden of Murasa, Seasons Past, Treasured Find, Animate Dead, Victimize. Sometimes you want to put specific things into the graveyard to fetch with recursion cards, so Entomb, Jarad's Orders, and Buried Alive become like tutors in a sense.
Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.
Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)
Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.
The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.
If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:
Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)
