At the beginning of your upkeep, look at the top two cards of your library. Put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest back on top of your library in any order.

Sultai Ascendancy Discussion
1 month ago
Thanks for all the suggestions Oloro_Magic! I guess I'm confused about your advice on The Gitrog Monster because it has synced so well with Monastery Siege and all the self-milling so far, as well as Raven's Crime. But I've only been playtesting this for couple days so we'll see. Dakmor Salvage is interesting but if I'm going to spend $2-$3 on a land I'd want it to make me faster (Drowned Catacomb or the like) not slower. I'm going to keep at least one Sultai Ascendancy around because it can stay on the field even when my graveyard isn't stocked (which is still a risk at turn 3). Ghoultree was a pretty obvious miss on my part, so thanks for that. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Tasigur, the Golden Fang seem like they could be really useful so I will just have to experiment with finding places for them. Remand and Abrupt Decay will be in my hopes and Life from the Loam and Liliana will be in my dreams for now.

I think you should work on focusing your deck a bit more, sultai dredge could be an interesting design. Firstly go down to 60 cards by cutting The Gitrog Monster it is a card that needs a very specific deck to work. From there you can focus more on dredge by going up to 4 Stinkweed Imp and 4 Dakmor Salvage. I would personally play 3 Splinterfright as it is just better than Sultai Ascendancy in fueling the grave for an easier to mange cost. Lotleth Troll is another card I think you should consider to accomplish the fueling of your graveyard. From there you should address what payoffs you have, Nemesis of Mortals is not enough; Ghoultree, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Bonehoard, and Kessig Cagebreakers are all great payoffs to the dredge plan. Also Tasigur, the Golden Fang will always be one or two mana in this deck which makes him a huge threat. Returning to Dakmor Salvage this syncs really well with Raven's Crime giving you more opportunities to dredge whilst also forcing your opponent to discard. My go to counter in sultai dredge would be Remand as dredge needs card draw to stay productive. To finish if you ever are looking to upgrade the deck in the future, Abrupt Decay is great removal in your colours; Liliana of the Veil is also a good choice sans budget. Also Life from the Loam is a must in dredge but you can get away with Satyr Wayfinder or Commune with the Gods.

My two biggest suggestions would probably be Sultai Ascendancy and Deadbridge Chant, as both help to quickly put cards in your graveyard. I would even say that they're pretty essential to most Sidisi EDH decks, especially if they're looking to outvalue the opponent, which is what it looks like you're doing.
Also, you're at 101 cards. Just in case you didn't know, the deck consists of 1 Commander and 99 other cards for a total of 100 cards.

Fun deck, but you only have 6 creatures with CMC 3 or less. I playtested it a couple times, and I never got the Soulflayer until past Turn 10 both times. Seems really contingent on having the Flayer to work. You also only have one source of Blue, and six cards that require it to be cast. I know they are mostly in there for the Soulflayer to Delve, but you don't have many reliable ways to discard the cards in your hand to the grave.
Right now it seems pretty unfocused and scattered. Cards that let you fish through the top X cards in your deck, put one in hand and discard the rest would be good for this deck. Examples include Benefaction of Rhonas, Bitter Revelation, Commune with the Gods, Forbidden Alchemy, Gather the Pack, Gifts Ungiven, Grisly Salvage, Moonlight Bargain, Mulch, Pieces of the Puzzle, Satyr Wayfinder, Scout the Borders, See the Unwritten, Strategic Planning, Sultai Ascendancy, Taigam's Scheming, Tracker's Instincts, Vigean Intuition, and Wood Sage.
Obviously, some of those are better than others. Pick the ones you think combo with the theme you want for this deck the best.

Painful Truths is good in any long grindy match-ups like Jund, Junk or Grixis. Walking Ballista could work. It is a mana sink that definitely will draw out your opponent's removal. Have you tried Engineered Explosives? I am in the same position with Tarmogoyf - I'm only halfway there. Just gonna throw some enchantments against the wall, not sure if any will stick. Sultai Ascendancy, Bloodbond March, Khalni Heart Expedition, Utopia Sprawl, Sinister Concoction.

DevoidMage Oh yes! Sorry, I forgot to change the deck to modern after publishing it -
Thank you for your suggestions as well! I do like Sultai Ascendancy just because I can choose what goes into the graveyard, however, during play testing I have found it very slow. So Grisly Salvage does seem like a more viable option. (I run it in my golgari deck actually) Animate Dead is a card I will definitely put into the deck as I forgot it existed, actually. I don't run exhume just because I don't like other people bringing back what I killed off already :/Furtherfore, I love the idea of adding some off-color dudes into the deck! Magister of Worth and Terastodon would be hilarious for sure XD
Thank you again for suggestion! You have been an incredible help!!! :D

Maybe Havengul Lich you dont have alot of creatures so why not use your opponents lol. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur goes with your commander kinda, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is just another hard creature to get rid of and can change to what you need, I saw you want Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir so why not Seedborn Muse both of them make up Prophet of Kruphix. Sultai Ascendancy and Rashmi, Eternities Crafter help with draw so you know what you are going to draw. Talent of the Telepath lets you play their cards and who know what wonderful things you can get from it hehehe! Expropriate I mean he's on the card and I love this thing if you get to play it its dumb and you have Boseiju, Who Shelters All so it can happen lol. Maybe Seasons Past to get cards back idk. Kruphix, God of Horizons is a good card I think helps with mana and your hand and if they want to get rid of it they have to exhale it. I really like the idea of playing with everyone else deck and your is there to just help you do it. I really like your deck and idea I hope these might help you. Could you look at my deck and see tell me what you think.

Loaming Shaman could help with the mill problem I know he isn't human but he helps me out a lot. I found some humans and elves you might like Deathrite Shaman,Grim Flayer,Grim Haruspex,Meren of Clan Nel Toth,Master Biomancer,Hamlet Captain,Kazandu Tuskcaller,Lighthouse Chronologist,Xathrid Necromancer,Zulaport Cutthroat they are all under 3 so you can use them with Abundance. Have you thought about Sultai Ascendancy to help with your draws or Rhystic Study? Also if your doing humans for the main theme I would try and use allies and werewolves they are pretty strong as a group plus you are already using Moonmist its just a thought sorry do make this so long hope some of these help you out! =)
