Torgaar, Famine Incarnate doesn't have to target your opponent. You could potentially gain some life yourself. And it says "up to one target player", so you could choose to target no player. With all that said, I agree, it's not a perfect fit in this deck specifically. But I will give Dire Fleet Ravager and Never Happened a go. I do miss Doomfall a bit.

Dire Fleet Ravager sounds great, so does Never Happened. i think that Torgaar, Famine Incarnate could often be a dead card by the time you can cast it? I image you'll have your opponent around that 10 life threshold anyway? I haven't tested Torgaar but I have a similar deck and don't see a spot for it simply because by the time I can play it he won't do anything or worse cause lifegain

Hi kamarupa! Your feedback is super useful! Thank you so much for putting so much time and energy into it. I'm going to mull this all over and really try to revamp this deck. The main thing I want to happen is to be able to essentially create a bunch of tokens pretty quick and then mostly sacrifice them to pull out the bigger creatures that either require sacrificing to be pulled out, or that cost less to pull out by sacrificing. I liked the idea of also being able to use a bunch of tokens and maybe one big creature to allow me to pull out a Ghalta, Primal Hunger for no cost, but it's true that I'm throwing in another mechanic in there when I should really be focusing on being able to do the first part of the strategy, which is to pull out a bunch of tokens, gain a bunch of life while doing it, and then pulling out the heavy hitters like Demon of Catastrophes and Demon of Death's Gate and Torgaar, Famine Incarnate. Thanks again!

Heh. Mash together Torgaar, Famine Incarnate and Archfiend of Despair. Boom, headshot!

I just had another thought IAmTheWraith have you considered adding Torgaar, Famine Incarnate. It's kinda meaner than what I would usually suggest, but I've been getting in touch with my inner villain lately making a bolas deck XD

Cool Concept I was wondering if Torgaar, Famine Incarnate and/or Dire Fleet Ravager would have a spot in this deck? They have bigger bodies and are bigger threats. Some more hand disruption I think would be good too like Pilfering Imp or for Phoenix or Golgargi threats Never Happened to get them into exile.

Hey Nometahere,

Where've you played this deck list? I'd like to know how it performed, if you wouldn't mind.

As to your points: Llanowar Elves serve well in dropping a turn two beater like Yavimaya Sapherd or Deathbloom Thallid, or even a turn three Torgaar, Famine Incarnate if we get lucky. I'm not sure I would want to cut them, but I'll definitely keep it in mind as I continue with this deck.

Carnage Tyrant is pretty far out of my price range, as is Assassin's Trophy. Getting two of each would actually double the total cost of this deck, and honestly, I don't really want to drop the fungus theme. Like, yeah, big dino is big, but it just isn't what I want here, you know?

Finally, Gruesome Menagerie seems like a pretty cool card, I'm just uncertain that I have appropriate targets for it. The absolute best-case christmas land of casting it would be turn five, bring back Llanowar Elves, Sporecrown Thallid, and either Slimefoot, the Stowaway, Deathbloom Thallid, or Yavimaya Sapherd, and I think I would almost always prefer to drop a Tendershoot Dryad instead of bringing those back. Especially post-boardclear, since I would definitely be losing all of the saproling tokens I had on board, and building them back up would be imperative.

Reclamation Sage is a permanent card that you can bring back over and over! Play at least 1 Mainboard!

Prodigious Growth is an awesome Permanent card that you can bring back over and over!

Torgaar, Famine Incarnate has a powerful ETB that you can use to reset your life, OR shut lifegain decks up!

In Bolas's Clutches another permanent that you might want to return from the grave!

Keep in mind, ALL of the saga's destroy themselves so Time of Ice or The Eldest Reborn could be really fun to resurrect over and over >:)
